Siphon is a track that Tin Foil Hat and Treee City started in 2020 when TFH visited Durham. A couple sessions at the Durty Studio produced the outline of a track seeking to capture a range of emotions. After COVID hit, the two expanded on the track over the course of 2020 and 2021, sending versions back and forth from Asheville to Durham during the pandemic. Starting as an instrumental, TFH added lyrics and the arrangement was expanded into a driving yet mellow dubbed out jazzy excursion.
"Doing the wrong thing to feel again
Running the long way, I begin again
I came a long way and started to feel happy
When daylight escaped me
I saw you turn around, holding out your heart
I walk to this river that I never cross
I siphon off water but the cleansing cold won’t drink me in
My faith, standing on workless, broken death
I’m hoping you can reach me
My fear, I’m through with diversion
Now I hope you’ll find me when I dive in
Hey, I’m waiting right here for you
I remain in the orphanage of your love
Weigh the other side of risk and break through the shadow of what your heart covered up"
