No stars in sight But the sky seems contemplative Look up and it’s bright Somehow the darkness faded Full moon tonight Full moon tonight It’ll be alright Full moon tonight Full moon tonight Full moon tonight On the fault lines of the shattered concrete A silhouette moves And I’m stare down at my feet Nobody’s here yet So there’s still room Full moon tonight Full moon tonight It’ll be alright Full moon tonight Full moon tonight Full moon tonight Full moon tonight

Deep Sleeper 03:53
Deep sleeper I can hear your starry whisper from across the ether Sunken dreamer I’m so sorry sister, I’m diving deeper Cortizone on the corner of your eye As you squint at the horizon where the sea meets the sky Struggle to speak on what you think may lie Beneath these ancient waves beyond caverns and caves Deep sleeper I can feel your hollow heartbeat from across the ether Bloodletter If I surrender to it Will it be that much better? I don’t know i don’t know i don’t know I don’t know i don’t know i don’t know I don’t know i don’t know i don’t know i don’t know i don’t know There’s a curtain of stars hiding Secrets and forms See critters float around it Blind pale worms Some things have been sleeping Since before you were born Do ya think that they’ll mind it When you finally find it? Deep sleeper I can see your shining glow pulse from across the ether Love me tender In a thousand thousand dreams that i won’t remember Deep sleeper Deep sleeper

See it shine on the horizon Like a signal flare Try to catch it but you’re choking On the noxious air There’s no one on this beach And there’s no stars in sight Feel the vastness of the ocean There’s no moon tonight You feel so old Standing there In the icy cold Abject terror Abject terror Now a dozen sets of headlights Coming down the coast And a hum that’s drawing closer Like a nasty ghost You know how you ended up here But don’t know what for Just reusing stuff you wrote A million years before Too late to learn Whispering while this driftwood burns Abject terror Abject terror Abject terror Abject terror Feel the vastness of the ocean Feel the vastness of the ocean Feel the vastness of the ocean Feel the vastness of the ocean

Clear Water 03:25
When astral projection fails And our severed connections bail Meet me on the outside We’ll stare at broken screens It’s a karaoke machine And every song is “Landslide” Forging your own signature See these figures blur Go back in time Call me on your landline Meet me at the cool clear water No stars in sight So we carried your flashlight Sneak down to the cool clear water You read lifelines on my palm said the fate line’s not so strong Tell me something i don’t know Cross a diamond desert with me Past the shimmer there’s a city Only if we both go Can you quarantine a sound Can you break it down Empty beaches Struggle to stay speechless Staring at the cool clear water So impatient But the ocean’s ancient Swimming in the cool clear water Try to show you what it feels like But i don’t know you in real life And in real life there’s a mountain Climbing up and then come back down again Cool clear water Cool clear water Cool clear water

Zone Eater 03:41
Triangle island gets so quiet We’re out here picking our spots Living like landslides You can sleep real late You can drink whatever you want I hear through the walls now You’ve been talking to the ghost of the conspiracy theorist Phantom time... again I don’t want to hear it I’m a zone eater A blood test cheater I’m a zone eater A mistake repeater Knife fight beach gets lonesome and your vision gets obscured Dispatches from the pyramid scheme capital of the world Can’t breathe in a vacuum Does that attract you? The sensation of negative space? Take it for granted chain reactions jumping from place Place to place to place to place To place I’m a zone eater A contract bleeder I’m a zone eater A bottom feeder I go to the beach with everyone else to see the ceremony Don’t cha know it’s so hard to tell the person that you’re living with when you’re feeling lonely

Early Riser 03:24
You’re an overachiever Talking violent, acting sweet As we walk these silent streets You’re a stubborn believer Say a prayer as you walk past All these broken pine and oak trees line these paths There’s a little little little little little little light There’s a little little little little little little light You’re an early riser You bear witness to the slow Fading embers burning low Your heart’s a gushing geyser And you say sorry when you’re sad And you smile at the chance you never had And there’s a little little little little little little light There’s a little little little little little little light And there’s a little little little little little little light There’s a little little little little little little light

Dana 02:39
I don’t know who you are But check out this skyline view Lost in collapsing stars, maybe the gravity’ll pull you through Sleep in this stranger’s basement fade these car crash dreams Learn what’s it like to live adjacent to a billion machines In a small room Safe from the fire Wrapped up In electrical wire The current’s Just Like blood how it flows Wrapped up In the hum and the pulse Dana don’t tell me now Dana don’t tell me then Dana don’t tell me ever I won’t ask you when just like a phantom limb gone but it never dies I can still see it swimming In your mermaid eyes In a small room Safe from the cold Wrapped up In its own contours and folds The shadows They scale up the wall Wrapped up In the pull and the thrall In a small room Safe from the fire Wrapped up In electrical wire The current’s Just Like blood how it flows Wrapped up In the hum and the pulse

Heart Eater 02:53
Magic markers On parking meters Names of all the people who we’ve sworn To kill Don’t look at the Movie camera Let the whole world see just who we are For real You did the wrong thing You did it for me Let it go, let it all sink down below Let it go away Let it drown, don’t let it follow you around Hold it down beneath the waves Dark things creeping Are we awake or dreaming When you’re underwater It gets real hard to tell I’m a bad sleeper You’re a heart eater All these broken feelings melt away Oh well You did the wrong thing You did it for me It’s been such a long time Adrift in the sea Let it go, let it all sink down below Let it go away Let it drown, don’t let it follow you around Hold it down beneath the waves

Fly Paper 03:06
God knows how I got To be here right now in this parking lot Toxic plasma in the air But i don’t care Highway overpass Tiptoeing around all of the broken glass Not a lot to do But i’m with you Vanishing Meaningless In the same place at the same time Not the same train, but the same line God know what’s out that door So let’s put on a movie that we’ve seen before Your eyes are bright In the dead lights And you whisper “disappear” No one will ever be nostalgic for these past few years Fly paper cling To this last thing Vanishing Meaningless In the same place at the same time Not the same train, but the same line In the same place at the same time Not the same train, but the same line

Pale Dim 01:46
Come on shadowboxers Give it up Come on lunar monsters Don’t show you’ve come unstuck Come on spirit army Show up soon Come on packs of wolves Just hold eye contact with the moon And come on nameless mountains Stay unknown Come on midnight movies Die alone Walk in the pale dim light The moon is a satellite Walk in the pale dim mist Ancient and bottomless

about

It's about staring at really big things (like the ocean) and then staring at really small things (like ourselves).
