/SleepingVillage/ This album is so fucking good. Raw talent.. more hook than a one-hundred-dollar Bill. Needs a limited vinyl drop like I need a few hundred thousand one hundred dollar bills... Favorite track: Liquor Picnic.

Track Name: C'mon Kitty
C’mon Kitty put your headphones on
C’mon Kitty put your headphones on
The sky’s so dark

C’mon Kitty put your headphones on
C’mon Kitty put your headphones on
The sky’s so dark

There’s a rumble in the city
There’s a car outside
He's gonna try to get you in it
Gonna take you for a ride​

You’d better get yourself ready
Put your blinders on
Queue up Hunky Dory
Andy Warhol song
And your bulletproof vest,
I suggest you put it on

C’mon Kitty put your headphones on
C’mon Kitty put your headphones on
The sky’s so dark
Track Name: Liquor Picnic
Shadow wasn’t her name but still that’s what she’d say
As her curtain would rise and her movie would play
The sun hit the line and we were out in the strange
She had this fear in her eyes and I was starting to pray

Oh I couldn’t wait
Oh I just couldn’t wait

When the night comes tumbling down
Oh you cannot be saved

Shadow wasn’t her name but it was all the same
As we breathed in and out and talked outer space
Drinking blood from her glass, I was drunk on her pain
We laid our bodies down and let our hands have their way

Oh I couldn’t wait
Oh I just couldn’t wait

When the night comes tumbling down
Oh you cannot be saved

I was talking to ghosts, she was singing to me
I took a drink from her mouth, she opened for me
Then the woods started howling and the wind blew the trees
We were apparitions, we turned into a dream

Oh I couldn’t wait
Oh I couldn’t wait

When the night comes tumbling down
Oh you cannot be saved
Track Name: Convicts
We are wandering souls through the hallway at night
With our hands in our pockets and our secrets alive
We are ghosts, baby
You and I
We are cold, we are eyes, we are circling flies
We’ve had enough and we’ve never tried
We are bones, baby
You and I

We will fade like the light
We will never be found
Like a wave that never
Quite touches the ground
We’ll go missing
We’ll go missing
We’ll escape like convicts
Gone underground
We’ll be gone by the time
They are looking around
We’ll be missing
We’ll be missing

We are the darkening stars in a dying sky
We just the kind of people that we don’t even like
We are lost, baby
You and I

We will fade like the light
We will never be found
Like a wave that never
Quite touches the ground
We’ll go missing
We’ll go missing
We’ll escape like convicts
Gone underground
We’ll be gone by the time
They are looking around
We’ll be missing
We’ll be missing
Track Name: Fatal Flaw
Down the drain by the old arcade
Some teenage shivery
If you pay attention, man
You can still hear whispering

You were caught with your hand in the jar
You’re not sorry for anything
Admit it, you’ve got a fatal flaw
And it’s probably worth mentioning

Come on Anjali I’ve got you
Come on Anjali I’ve got you
Come on Anjali, I’ll take you home

I’m no saint myself, to be honest
And I rarely tell the truth
I’m not making eye contact
I’m just here to help you

Come on Anjali I’ve got you
Come on Anjali I’ve got you
Come on Anjali, I’ll take you home
Come on Anjali I’ve got you
Come on Anjali I’ve got you
Come on Anjali, I’ll take you home​
Track Name: Alright?
I can’t stand the falling leaves
They remind me of the sun
I can’t stand the way you sing
It reminds me of everyone
I can’t stand my thoughts and dreams
Or the stranger I’ve become
My skin, it whispers and the bees do sting
Yeah, this whole thing is no fun

I’m gonna be alright

Dried up eyes, desert things
They feel like cotton balls
Shaking legs a’ wandering
Going nowhere at all
I can’t stand my thoughts and dreams
These images recalled
My skin, it whispers and the bees do sting
Yeah, this whole thing is a ball

I’m gonna be alright

I can’t stand the buildings and wires
The things that block the sky
I can’t stand the sound of tires
Rumbling at night
I once knew a cigarette girl
And she was out of her mind
Now I can’t stand the memory
This whole thing is a lie

I’m gonna be alright​
Track Name: Ravensong
I don't wanna be here alone without your raven song

Ink spilling out of the stars into the sky
Somewhere out here in the dark, I know you're flying
Headlights, far away cars as they go by
I miss you but I couldn't say why

I don't wanna be here alone without your raven song

I want you to swallow me up and keep me inside
Shrink my body down until it's right sized
I will go wherever you go, cry when you cry
I need you but I couldn't say why

I don't wanna be here alone without your raven song
Track Name: Pentagram
I want you to come in and silence
The noise that is inside my head
Your perfect face and its violence
Just lay me right down in this bed
Most of our kisses are stolen
More than our lips turning red
Electricity in your motion
The shock as you step from your dress

There are ancient ideas in the shadows
There are libraries full of ‘em, man
And I smile as I step to the gallows
Tattooed with your pentagram
If there is a mercy in this story
It's in the way that it ends
You never asked my forgiveness
And I never offered it, man

The silver a’ shining in your hair
The fireworks of your glare
I wouldn’t skip this for anything
And there’s nothing in you that is scared
Come to me, come to me, come to me
I’m begging you, this is a prayer
Take me and ruin my mattress
Show me just how much you care​
Track Name: V.D.
Across the carpet in a downtown tenement, I’ve got skidding
Your arms around my neck I know you’re not kidding
I’m no stranger to bad decisions when it comes to decisions
The calamity starts to feel like plain old living

I felt a crawl coming up my skin
Until the room was spinning
I felt your love or whatever it is
Come into my physics

You’ve got it
Now I’ve got it

Doctor, doctor on the 7th floor please help me kick it
She’s like a violence in my pores, it’s endemic
Doctor help me shake this noise, I need an exorcism
I’ve got a valentine poison inside me swimming

I felt a crawl coming up my skin
Until the room was spinning
I felt your love or whatever it is
Come into my physics

You’ve got it
Now I’ve got it
Track Name: We Should Dance
We woke up standing in line
Fucking the future from behind
Darling please, take my hand
if it's the end of the world we should dance

Hanging tree limbs, concrete eyes
There is nothing in us, nothing inside
Darling please, take my hand
if it's the end of the world we should dance

Cheek to cheek, whispering kiss
Oh let them find us just like this
Darling please, take my hand
if it's the end of the world we should dance
