about

Recorded in bits and pieces late 2015 - mid 2016 at a wonderful house with a wood fireplace and a spacious garage, where we spent hours jamming, partying, bickering, and relaxing together and separately.

Track Name: I Trust You
Why should I hate you?
Why should I want you to suffer when I do?
You are not my enemy
No matter what you or anyone else tells me
We do not always see eye to eye
Why should I not try to empathize?
We could surprise the world with our peace
We can connect through compassion
We can make the mania end

Trust me and we will all see
Trust me
I trust you
Track Name: Bare
When I was waiting for you to return
Feeling so lonely and tired and worn
I had decided that I'd never learn
Am I so phony and weak-willed at heart
As to burn out in secret while splitting

A part of me knows that it's wrong
Yet even now it plays along
Tracing the memory back to the start
Until it stops coming

Back in our bedroom, I'm not even here
Twisting through sleeplessness shadowed by fear
Wearing these fingers so calloused and cold
How I wish yours would linger before we're too old
To remember the hunger we share
To let go of the feeling of being afraid of
Time unwinding, leaving us bare and alone
Track Name: Pick A Fight
What would it take to make your day?
What could I do to make you want to stay?

Pick a fight?
Say you're right?
Say you're wrong?
Either way, it'll be a long night

What would it take to make your day?
What could I do to make you want to stay?
Pick a fight?
Track Name: Make It Right
If I could take back what I said
If I could make it up to you
There is a voice stuck in my head
Never wanting to let go

We don't know quite what has happened
But we know it well enough
From your choices, I have hidden
Should I take a path forbidden

Now the temperature has risen
Will this blood begin to boil?
Though we see that it is over
Still I yearn to make it right

No way to apologize enough for what has happened
Swim around inside this well of fear and desperation
Dig into myself in search of new communication

Do I have a right to speak to you?
Do I have a right to speak?
Track Name: Chattering
I still can't get it out
I forgot it all so long ago and now it's come alive to haunt me
I still can't figure out
Why it wraps its way around my head and holds me down until I'm dead inside
I still can't force them out
All the thoughts that tell me that I'm nothing, doomed to be this way forever
I still can't talk about it
For the fear of finding out what you might really think of the real me

I want to be anything at all that would give you the strength to keep on trying
Instead I'm lying on my back and through my crooked teeth
Chattering away so nervously
I am no monstrosity, but right now that's all that I seem to be

I still can't spit it out
I don't know what to talk about or what to think at all when I'm with you
I still can't figure out
Why I wrap myself up in the bed and hold myself there 'til I'm dead inside
I still can't force them out
All the thoughts that tell me that I'm nothing, doomed to be this way forever
I still can't talk about it
For the fear of finding out what you might really think of the real me

I want to be anything at al that would give you the strength to keep on trying
Instead I'm lying on my back and through my crooked teeth
Chattering away so nervously
I am no monstrosity, but right now that's all that I seem to be
Track Name: Atlas
Is it real? Can it be true?
Am I really losing you?
Held you close the whole ride through
Now my grip is letting loose and it's no use
I can't seem to see the proof
Yet you're acting so aloof
Does this mean a thing to you?
Does it mean a thing to you?

Time after time, tried and true
Coming face to face with you
Still the static racing through
Fills my face with fear and here we are, where all the world is dead
Lying face down in the bed
Clear your place out of my head
Tell you not to take your time
You've taken too much of mine

Yet it's nothing like you ever could expect
Left here all alone with no project
Now I know where we both stand
We built these walls with my bare hands

Tell me twice, tell me true
Am I really over you?
