RM This album was a perfect fit when released for a pretty awful time in my life. Most of the tracks still help me get back there when I just need a good sulk. Except Charisma; that one is just fun. Favorite track: Love on Repeat.

Nicholasw I didn't know they still made music like this! It's like that moody, really emotional circa-2005 indie rock music, where it still rocked, and the band members could actually play. There's optimism to start with, and then it gets all grey skies, and then all determined, and then one of those "I'm at peace with this" closers. Also, Wait for Love actually gets stronger in its latter half instead of muddying out! This would have been my jam in 2005, and it's even more my jam now. Favorite track: Forever Sound.

Come and celebrate, cut loose, and shake, I can almost make out your words, I can always taste this soothing hate. Won’t you come and let your love guilt shine? Let your beauty ruin in this light? We’re worshipping all the sounds on our way down, like nightly right, a salvation so profound on the way out, we’re so life like somehow, so come, confess something dire and nothing less, and hold your breath, hang your head, this language like acid in your chest, we wait for love, tradition can’t be kept. This dark affair, as sweet as it gets, this purity, all the sounds on the way down, like nightly right, this last romance so profound on the way out, we’re so life like tonight, play the fool like ritual, it’s all so plain to see, we’re just trying to find the truth in the telling water, and your body takes the blows, it’s all the blame you need, nursing in this drinkers bar alone, so come, confess something dire and nothing less, and hold your breath, hang your head, this language like acid in your chest, we wait for love, and it’s getting so late.

Charisma 04:07
Over and just begun, pulled from her, pulled to me, it’s everything she wanted, it’s happening with ease, modern Rembrandt life, a peach and black painted charisma, you're so alive, like a dream, or catching flies, dead asleep, the Magothy days slipped away, I caught a strangers eye, and what a way you won me over, keep praising the light, keep sleeping by numbers, it’s everything she wanted, it’s all famine or feast now, making deals with bitter sundown, a body that stays in disarray, sneaking out of view, I think deep down she always knew I’d fully give in, she got blood from a stone with grace, making up for lost living, wearing that womb looks good on you, no better view, I love it Lou, painted charisma, the Magothy days slipped away, I caught a strangers eye, and what a way you won me over.

Bitter Red 04:43
A face with such stern symmetry, weathered skin turned burgundy, “the most handsome man you ever saw,” that smirk like sour, razor jaw, hold your roses, see the fingers? They’re starting to bend. We can't move, we can't miss out, know before we’re gone, you've meant the most, I’ve said it all now. A face with such soft tendencies, saved a man withdrawn like me, “love you more,” and I’m on my way home, forgot everything I’ll ever know, hold your roses, bitter red buried in lake effect, we can't move, we can't miss out, know before we’re gone, you’ve meant the most, I’ve said it all now. As pure as they come, and I was after the same life you two wrote, it’s been too much, I could never say aloud, “thats enough,” so mercy now, blood, your memory’s still passing me down, looking for what never comes around.

Dry Spells 05:34
Patterns, they fall, she can hear. I fold your dress, I’m wound, I rise in reverence, in the morning light, I pull down the stripes, in the window white, bar by bar, line by line, in the morning light, she just comes alive, dissolve at the sight, I see her changing like fire, show your body of God, all your blonde waves, untamed. These spells, pure hell, dry as bone. I fold your dress, I Howl, I Drown in depravity, heavy fits with no relief, show your body of God, all your blonde waves, untamed, and after all the patter taunts, the rising heat just breaks and drops, after all the water falls, I love the taste and I can’t stop, she floods down hard, pours from the heavens, gives it a rest on my chest, she puts on faces everyday, she will always pull the strings, steal my dreams, tear my body apart, all your blonde waves, untamed and after all the patter taunts, the rising heat just breaks and drops, and after all the water falls, I love the taste and I can’t stop, I want to rattle walls, I want so much more.

The laughing beaut’s are laughing at you, the Georgetown eyes smile goodbye, I’ve already seen everyone in this dark and dreary bay of dreams. Some you love, it’s right away, the Carolina parties stay, the South River racks, they’re freezing in this dark and dreary bay of dreams, I am remiss and I am reminding. The laughing beaut’s are laughing at you, sprawled on the floor beside the bed, Ive already had everyone in this bay of dreams so have your way with me, I am remiss and I am reminding. Stay in my veins, I am deserving, stay in my veins, I’m tired and swerving.

Forever sound, whistle around the ring, wetness on the lip, like phantom weeping, chemicals gave us time to tell, right? This little creek, so “barren and bleak and dark,” winding at the bend, it’s almost Heaven, all is wild, all is wonderful, right? And state lines, with nothing to show, so long and slow, stay just out of reach, just take us home. Forever sound, whistle around the ring, wetness on the lip, and the glass rim sings like the voice of who we’ll never meet, and our Heaven went astray, drowned out like indigo, you’re bitter wine that’s tasteless, never came along with time, and state lines, with nothing to show, so long and slow, stay just out of reach, just take us home. We’re the best, pretty good at waiting, but in the end, bodies for the taking. You were the best violent motivation, a valentine, still but somehow shaking, Potomac river secrets floating on along their way, lost but somehow staying, and state lines, with nothing to show, so long and slow, stay just out of reach, just take us home. These bed sheets like bodies all alone, never there at all, old road just take us home.

Bloody Sweet 05:04
Do you even breathe, When I say that It won’t be long? When you watch me leave, you’re bloody but sweet, in misery, I’m somewhere between, and from high above, I could never quite capture you, the bays like blue veins, crooked as hell, and stretch like birthing scars. I’m just a love letting bloodletting take place alone. Can It wait a few more days? This love of mine gives and takes, like fever shakes of a beaten sore leather body, healthy, still, out of shape. Been here before, hard to ask life to stay, we try but it just can’t bother. It’s blinding in this red haze, a negative over exposed. Landing never does the trick, nothing but talking silhouettes, pouring on Manchester, sun now, but it’s the same as the last, a drink two fingers high, idle hands are wrapped around the glass, I can’t settle down, just bloody but sweet, alone in Missouri. I’m just a love by the phone. Can It wait a few more days? This love of mine gives and takes, like fever shakes of a beaten sore leather body, healthy, still, out of shape. Been here before, hard to ask life to stay, we try but it just can’t bother. I’m just a love, I disappear, never arrive, and you're laying there, barely alive.

Manila 04:10
All that I see are the either or’s and I’m still yours, and I’m slipping out the way I choose, like soft, slight Sunday blues, all that I taste now, faint manila so familiar. Flying gulls raging in the wind, race the ships, wings guided by the waves, pressure at bay, tension’s here to stay the Gulf Coast way. All that I take now is my time, you’re so graceful, holding but losing us, “it’s great how you’re so selfless with our shared life.” You're untouchable, stunning, “I’m drowning in this sea, your love all the time, it’s ours if you say so,” just want something more to take a hold of, when everything turns out differently, I’ll keep promising and listening to the loons, all that I take now is my time, you're so patient, holding but losing us, “it’s great how I’m so selfish with our shared life.” All that I taste now, faint manila, so familiar, I’m yours.

The slow motion sin, the dead summer dance again, my chassy knows what could’ve been. I see how it happens now, all stretched out before me, my prime was a still frame in your movie days, so late. We’re close to dying twice, projector of our life, “old Hollywood,” holy bound, I see how it happens now, all stretched out before me, what could've been? My prime was a still frame in your movie days, so late, those sirens sing on 42nd street, and they've been calling my name out, what in you gets me so carried away? I can’t say yet, love on repeat, it’s life again, it’s my flesh, my own blood, you vexed and sparked right from the start, so come and remind us, what in you gets me so carried away? I can’t say yet.
10.
Blue 05:31
Would you believe it? I’m a family man now, here’s your boy’s boy, all blue eyed and stubborn, I wonder, where’s he get it all from? This sandy honey hair? This hell of a temper? I never knew mine, he’ll never know his, but it’s so good to see you again, so haunt a little more, been so long since you've been here with us. Would you believe it? family man now, it’s about time, his first years, his first snow, it’s perfect, it’s beautiful when he talks to you, he’s sleeping in your room, go meet him, keep him warm tonight. So haunt a little more, so long, it’s time to put you to bed, so haunt, take out your teeth, so long, just put the worry away, laugh and let go, it’s time for you to rest. We’re alive but tired, “we all agree he’s got your eyes,” after all this time, “we all agree he’s got your eyes,” in a certain light, “we all agree he’s got your eyes,” and I could die, to see him sitting by your side.
