about

Dark, teenage bedroom pop. A blend of fuzzy guitar and piano accompaniment. Two melancholy solo piano tracks bookend the album.

Achingly honest, authentic, dreamy, dark, and hopeful.

Track Name: Goodnight Sugarpie
No more words, only silence
On the day you laid me down to rest
with all your fears
pounding heart overhearing you
when I love you makes me sick
keep your mouth closed and it will be much easier to

let this one go
I won't let this one go

And by the hand of God my curtain calls and I lie waiting
for search lights that pass over me and eyes that cannot see
and by your victory march and I can't hear over
these voices in my head and now I've gone and taken
all the things I should have said

No more words only white noise on the day I come
crawling back to you with all my insecurities
you don't care and you're not hearing me
when I say I've got nowhere better to be
If I could keep my mouth closed it would be much easier to

let this one go
I won't let this one go

And by the hand of God my curtain calls and I lie waiting
for search lights that pass over me and eyes that cannot see
and by your victory march and I can't hear over
these voices in my head and now I've gone and taken
all the things I should have said

Goodnight stars, goodnight stars
I'll be missing you and the nights I've spent up upon the roof
Goodnight stars, goodnight stars
but I'm not sorry that I'm leaving you
Track Name: Static Stranger
When did the sky begin to fall and this apocalypse come around?
was I dreaming away not paying attention?
sun sets on humanity and I rise again
when did it come to this?

Static Stranger my undefinable mystery
the red patterns on your skin draw me in
static stranger in disarray you fascinate me
do you break down?

I guess I lost myself in everyone else's truths
I am a shadow therefore only an imitation of life
time rolls on heedless and I am indifferent
flowers bloom like a spreading poison mold me like clay

Static Stranger my undefinable mystery
the red patterns on the sky draw me in
static stranger in disarray you fascinate me
are you haunted by a memory

Suddenly I'm your
static stranger your undefinable melody
the patterns of your lips draw me in
static stranger on higher ground you fascinate me
don't you fade out on me again
Track Name: Steel Skeleton
Tripping through the open air in silence and desolation
I found you in a fog
on stark bridges we hang out legs over rusted train tracks
and vanish into industrial ghost towns

I hear and echo of a past I never knew
and a song which used to mean so much
I'll keep on singing until these words start to mean something to me

Tripping through the shadows calling out your name in desperation
beckoning you to come and leave with me
don't look back until you hear the loud sound
and see the mushroom clouds

I see figures in the distance
Echo of a time when colour was in my eyes and on my lips
I'll keep on singing until these words start to mean something to me

I can't begin comprehend all the chemicals and complexes of thought
I just don't understand what started to tip us off this edge
i can't even voice the words to break down all these walls
I hope you know when I say I'm sorry I'm talking about this all

I feel a faint sensation
An echo of time before my skin went numb
I was ghosting though these days and words
in the hopes that they'd mean something to me
Track Name: Autumn in the Institution
Place my feet down on the dark ground the grass is soft and the wind is picking at me absentmindedly pulling the pieces out
dead grasses and twigs clawing at the edge of the pale blue skies
dark trees overhead are running read and burning up just like a fever

Midnight calling I feel it in your touch
and in the corruption of these dreams they lead me on
and I know you'd give anything for it to be anyone but me
when this comes with the mark of waiting rooms that never ends

Dust rises up in a checkerboard pattern of the roads lead me proudly
pebbles and stones on the gravel roads dig into my bare feet
Death and rebirth and this stop sign at the end of my world
I won't be coming back here until this sickness fades
It spreads like wildfire

Midnight calling I feel it in my bones
I am aging with the steady breaking roll
I was cast out on this turbulent sea
makes me wish I were anyone but me

Winter is coming I feel it in my skin
Jack frost brings me bloodlines on my windowsill
and I'd give anything to be anywhere but here
when this comes with the mark of waiting rooms that never ends
Track Name: I, the Mute
Morning light the sun
casts the light to show the sin that I live in
You say it's all the same
but you don't know me that well anyway
Run along and play
I will keep my secrets today
I will finally prove
that I don't need to bother you

Strangely as it seems
I have begun to lose this dream
Story books I loved
that's the world I'm dreaming of

Sunlight fades away
I have learned to deal today
I have finally proved
that I don't need to bother you
and as I lay down my head
I wish I could sleep for forever forget this
Forget this

Strangely as it seems
I have already lost too many dreams
story books I loved
that's the reality I'm dreaming of

and as I lay down my head
I wish I could sleep for forever forget this
Back to the fairy tale ideal
Forget this, forget this, forget this
forget this, forget what is real
