Roofhare This album feels very intimate and personal to me. I particularly like the vocals and the layered lyrics. very good production and overall balance in all tracks. This is a talent to be reckoned with! Favorite track: Whatever's Stolen Stays.

Track Name: Souvenir
walking backwards
what's worthwhile?
I'll take my chances

come on slowly
you strange desire
I'll fake the answer

I've been swimming
for one year
concrete island
souvenir
All these buildings
make me small
this is all
I'll ever see

touch me friend
you are my second skin
my cloak and dagger

gearing up
for the next mistake
it gives me something
I thought I need

this is all I'll ever be

come on slowly
second skin
you are all I'll ever need

this is all I'll ever see
it's all I'll ever be
Track Name: I/O
uninvited
you don't notice
because I'm moving
in slow motion
touch the ceiling
like you're hoping
to float away when this all goes cold

when you're far, far away from here
you say you're in and out and stumbling
with every step a little easier
to get right back where we start again

ideal timing
perfect order
heavy handed
full disclosure
what if this never, even gets close to,
the life you told yourself you're going to live?

when you're far, far away from here
you say you'll be back when we start again
I don't think it's getting easier
when you're in and out I'm in and out

I'm just too slow to notice
the ideal time, the perfect order
when it's cold, we're floating
never right back where we start again

you say we'll smash the perfect order
touch the ceiling when we're floating
and if we move in slow motion
we'll be right back when we start again

when you're far, far away from here
you say you'll be back when we start again
I don't think it's getting easier
to say you're in or out
Track Name: Whatever's Stolen Stays
what's in your blood you can't replace
it turns you inside out
the energy that can't be traced
the motion that allows

all of this
informs the way
travel through what cannot be explained
whatever's stolen stays

what's in your heart that separates
what makes you feel so proud?
not enough to ever satiate
lifts you up to let you down

all of this
informs the way
travel through what cannot be explained
whatever's stolen stays

what's in your blood you can't replace
lifts you up to let you down
not enough to ever satiate
let what's stolen stay
Track Name: Enemy Home
put the flame to the plastic parts
the light that glows just bothers me
all this time to make a home
still I wonder what it means

keeping together all the separate parts
when the fire that glows is incomplete
all this time to make a home
still that devil's after me

all this time to make a home
still I wonder what it means
why's that devil after me?
someone tell me I'm complete
Track Name: Wrapping Arms
come out, I know you're there
I see the scratches on the wall
they lead me

so come out, don't be scared
every second that you are away
is a season

when I get too serious
you pull me back
it's not your problem
when I'm like that
when the world's on fire
you cool it down
it's not your problem, it's just my problem

when it all unravels
we're wrapping arms
what starts as weakness, leaves us strong

you make me believe I'm the one
who makes you feel this
who turns you on

don't forget where you're from
that's where we'll meet
after the fall

don't forget when you fall
that's where
we are from
Track Name: Spill
shuffling the old papers
I spill across the avenue
on promises that won't collect
and favor that just don't correct
you're hanging from the clocktower
you say you're "...doing fine, it's all relative..."
for sure...

I don't ever want to try
I'll just put myself up front until this all makes sense
the clearer that it gets a new illusion just forms

I'm running from the clocktower
I'm funneling the last reserves
on salaries that don't protect
and sentences that won't connect
I'm calling out the messenger
tell them I'm doing fine, I'm just never sure
what's wrong

I don't ever want to die
I'll just fold myself up tight until I disappear
the ones I thought I lost were never with me to start

I won't ever learn to fly
I'll just push myself up high until I float away
the neighborhoods I pass can never touch me
I'm gone
Track Name: Traveling
when you're traveling
and you're very far
do you feel alive?
when it falls apart

I've been going out
just to turn around
I keep your story straight
and the secrets down

when you're traveling
do you think of me?
you know I stayed behind
and now I'll never leave

I've got a lot to do
but I'll never start
it's all too much

there are so many words
keep them in my head
until it all erupts

if you lose your nerve
just don't look back
if you're feeling safe
that's how you know you're trapped

you've got a lot to lose
so you count it out
somehow it won't add up

like how you feel so free
when you're on the road
act like it's in your blood
to be alone

when you're traveling
tell me you're never scared
and when you find your place
promise you'll take me there
