Stream 03:03
I guess my brick wall is more peaceful than yours The meaning of what you feel A small stream of water, a small stream of blood and money A small stream of water, a small stream of blood and money And me, shamelessly stealing those words Oooooh I want it, all of it oh Oooooh I want it, all of it oh Oooooh even when there’s nothing left Oooooh The wind outside is opening doors Letting in the air as cold complaint We watch the death and the dryness of the last flame We watch the death and the dryness of the last flame Slow death can be more quiet, just a little more Oooooh I want it, all of it oh Oooooh I want it, all of it oh Oooooh even when there’s nothing left Oooooh

Skyline 03:58
I’ve been looking down I kinda miss the skyline My town’s biggest flaw Is its symmetry I’m starting to like it here Starting to like it here Or maybe I just got used to Infinite white noise Tell me I don’t cook Tell me I don’t wait The silence fades in My car breaks down I’ll go and spread my legs in subway trains And speak in my low voice I’ll tell everyone I know everything And I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will… I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die I will never die

Butterfly dog in a loud house Hear me sing Too loud again I never understand Butterfly dog in peaceful air Feel the wind That raised me here That heard me here Lighter breath You look in And your eyes when you cry And your eyes when you cry And your eyes when you cry And your eyes when you cry The clouds dispersed today A little more light In our fire-lit cage Lighter breath We’ll try and find something else Than what we dream The ghosts in my parent’s bedroom What I dream Lighter breath You look in And your eyes when you cry And your eyes when you cry And your eyes when you cry And your eyes when you cry

Refuge 02:47
The roof is melting On ice-covered snow The dog is barking At invisible ghosts I watch you close I watch you far You come and go In my bright red car Show me around Tell me stories Where werewolves were loud Back in the thirties The town wants your place For parking and noise For fun and games For louder voices I watch you close I watch you far You come and go In my bright red car Show me around Tell me stories Where werewolves were loud Back in the thirties

Tedium 03:59
See me looking around Deep in the heart of a cold town Glass-filtered eyes Tedium Tedium And I find any I’ll look away Is it a bad sign when I’m not sure if I’ll be anything more than what I am now? That’s why I broke down last night That’s why I broke down in my brother’s arms Baby I am a man I’ve got hair all over my chest I should know what to say For tedium For tedium That’s what my sources claim but I’ll look away Is it a bad sign when I’m not sure if I’ll be anything more than what I am now? That’s why I broke down last night That’s why I broke down in my brother’s arms I want you to be ok I want you to be fine You better believe me when I say I won’t look away You better believe me when I say I won’t look away

Moth 04:24
I’m cold and awake and I don’t mind I was dreaming of bad things again As I turn around to get closer Your elbow pushes me away The rain flooded our surroundings But we’re breathing in a floating house We’re ok and we’ll stay like that We’re ok and we’ll keep it that way And I can’t find the words to say what I want These days it’s fine to have nothing else to say I’m not like the moth in your arms It always needs the last word I’m not like the moth in your arms It always needs the last word I’m singing too loud again As I’ve been doing for years now The only difference nowadays Is the color of the car I’m driving As we’re watching tv shows all night With too much sex and countless turnarounds We’ll fall asleep tomorrow And I’ll still have nothing more to say And I can’t find the words to say what I want These days it’s fine to have nothing else to say I’m not like the moth in your arms It always needs the last word I’m not like the moth in your arms It always needs the last word

All I want is a peaceful death Simple and easy I watch the city With its grey grey lights I’ll find the way out Define me by the way I drive out of here For now all I can do Is see all the broken strings on my father’s childhood guitar I want to last longer than this I mean I want to mean something to someone What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else What I want is somewhere else ….

about

This is our way of staying productive, of trying new stuff with the tools we had, each in our own home. The songs were made in an almost automatic writing method in mind. Keeping things simple while trying to reach sounds we don’t usually end up with. This ]thing[ is about how ridiculous a real man can be, it’s about trying to describe the present with its most simple details and wanting to stay sane. It’s a (mostly) quiet record for late night listening. It is neither our third album nor a new EP, it’s something we had to try to keep on creating together while separated.
