Newer release:

The sixth release is a special double album cassette featuring Virgo Indigo and Farther Reaches performed by Aaron Powell aka Fog Lake living in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It has been my dream to release Aaron's music so I approached him with this idea, we talked about it and finally created this beautiful cassette release. I hope you will enjoy these cassettes as much as I will do. I am so happy to have Aaron in our Z Tapes family.

With love,



released July 22, 2015

Track Name: virgo indigo - virgo indigo
now they've sewn up both your eyes
but i still miss you
its a delicate disguise
but i can see through
and all the rain comes down in sheets
but i don't feel blue
now you've got me on my knees
and i still don't feel used

we will go
no control
we will go indigo
Track Name: virgo indigo - mad scientist
and it all went down the drain
all the photos lost their meaning
never saw that side again
don't forget what gets you high
so you can hold yourself together
when you're running out of time

i had a heart
but yea you fucked it up forever
things just never came to light
and now i'm holding on to never
i don't wanna have the chance
to see the world without your hands
there's only so much i can stand

so it all went down the drain
Track Name: virgo indigo - it was never enough
living out my wasted time
nowhere to run
nowhere to hide

staring through a hollow heart
we were all out of luck
it was never enough

angels crying in the streets
somewhere underneath
he's inside of me

emptiness becomes a home
all you'll ever know
it was never enough

sorry for what you became
but who can be blamed?
i know you know

living in a hollow heart
we were fucked from the start
it was never enough
Track Name: virgo indigo - erik
oh can't you see that it's a long way to be leaving
a long way home
and hey i think that it's best that
we probably stop believing cuz time's a slow game
and though i see it in the seasons
it doesn't matter what you're feeling
so strange to think that what you're stealing
is everything i'm needing
Track Name: virgo indigo - little black balloon
we cut ties to live again
all the places you've never been
are you ever gonna find them?

i don't know if i ever knew
how it came to be so soon
if i ever would have come through
we'll never know

it took time to love again
it had gone so awful then
things never meant to happen

found a way, a little black balloon
never had enough to lose
now they're never gonna find you
they'll never know
Track Name: virgo indigo - dream gate
i stay high to pass the time
burn away the afterlife
trapped inside your angel eyes
wasted now the light has died

i have always been prepared
find me in your darkest fears
dream gate get me out of here
drifting in the thinnest air
Track Name: virgo indigo - nocturnal blues
rusty old hands
blood fills the sky
you're all my friends
trust my disguise
i live in bars
you tread thin ice
they locked you in
sewed up your eyes

i wore your clothes
i took your pills
i lived alone it was a thrill
you led me in down in this shoe
now there is nothing left for me to do

you'll come crashing down
on me
Track Name: virgo indigo - pretty lights
i've got all the remedies
let's jump out of our minds
melt into our eyes
those pretty lights

cause we're not fond of anyone
they fucked us up
now we can't love anymore

you hate all my melodies
but i know they'll work
and after church i hope it hurts

you gave me misery
you wrecked my head
remember when you thought
that you had a friend
Track Name: virgo indigo - circuit rider
broke even with a traveling man
circuit rider in my head
and i know we got time to sin
before we fall in their traps again

we could fly off into the sun
i could be the only one
nevertheless it's been such fun
but our lives just never would

i'm sick of falling behind
black circles forming under my eyes
not much of me left alive
brokenhearted safe disguise

circuit rider comes to me
every night into my dreams
but it took so long to see
that you too were make believe
Track Name: virgo indigo - lost love letters
if somebody loved me
then maybe i'd survive
and we'd sit by the harbor
to stall our empty lives

if you don't look back
then i won't look back
if you don't give a damn
then i won't give a damn
and if you call out i won't answer
and if time runs out
then it won't matter
and if you call out
i won't answer
Track Name: farther reaches - words
i've got your picture in the back of my head
i couldn't focus on the trouble i'm in
i hear your voice now but only so many words
there's no sun now and there's no cure
do you know you're special?
and can you see the necessary evil in me?
Track Name: farther reaches - space station
space station take the other route home
there's a truth in these lies i want you to know
oh fever blissed her the mirror feels so wrong
got your hair tied i want you to know

this hesitation i store away the days
cause i'm a jelly kisser i need you to know
give me a reason to reach outside this view
cause if i run out i want you to come too
Track Name: farther reaches - torn-up scene
we hung up every phone
i told you not to go
you didn't hear my call you pushed right past the wall
you used to hide in every tone
down in the safety zone
now i'm looking through the door
i swear i saw it twice before

but is it you or me in the torn-up scene?

it kicks me when i talk
it leaks into my skull
can't you make it stop can't you make it stop?
did you just forget? did you just forget?

so tell me please
are we in the streets of the torn-up scene, are we?
cause i'm a freak
but i don't mean
i'm a freak
Track Name: farther reaches - farther reaches
there's farther reaches in my head
but they don't ever let me rest
clutching knifes against my chest
cos you won't love me till i'm dead

there's farther reaches in your head
but you can't have them till you're dead
so waste your days till you forget
what's it's like to have a friend do i reach you?
Track Name: farther reaches - waking song
i just need some company so i can get to sleep
you don't have to dream if i just hear you scream
oh wake up it's a beautiful day to be dead
wake up, wake up, wake up
see my bones? they're in my heart now
and you don't know, you don't know
sick you make me sick
gonna make you sick
Track Name: farther reaches - ghostly
ake me where you never go
wait until my heart explodes
these busy days they never slow
try to make the spirits go to bed
i feel a light inside crossing paths within our eyes
but now your face will never die
there's a parasite inside my mind

there's a fear inside my head
that won't let up until you're dead
it makes it hard to concentrate
these feelings that i cannot seem to fake
the ghost inside your smile makes suffering alone worthwhile
watch my lungs absorb the heat
as ground gives way beneath my feet
Track Name: farther reaches - when?
is it strange the way you feel
try to waste away tomorrow
because now when i feel down
i drive around this vacant town
and as i passed outside your home
the curtains were ripped open
and i could vaguely see your bones
they made me feel so alone, alone, alone

and i'll these ghosts i've made my friends
to conceal my empty hands
did it work for you because my eyes are cherry blue
now i don't ever feel so far
now i don't ever feel so shallow
you look lost in every bar
i wonder where you are, you are, you are
Track Name: farther reaches - keep a light lit
you make me everything at once
tucked down and around until i can't stand up
but i can't heed what i hold dear
i'm gonna take back all the nights that you weren't here

and i wait so still just to take these pills
cause we don't fight it
keep a light lit
we'll provide it keep a light lit

you keep me up and out of luck
awake inside the dreams in which i'm stuck
and when i wake i feel so dead
cause i still feel you pounding in my head

and i'm on my way to a hellish state
cause we don't fight it
keep the light lit
we'll provide it
keep the light lit
we don't try it
keep the light lit

(kane, i think you're someone else)
Track Name: farther reaches - extension cord
my friends are always laughing at me
i don't know how i'm deserving
but if you wait for me i'll be in the closet
learning to tie a noose
i'm losing my footing
and the extension cord won't hold my weight much longer
oh no
