We recorded everything in one fell swoop of a night. In addition, we created a set of the studio and had our friends film us recording, which we later edited and released. The videos can be found on vimeo and youtube.

Track Name: Underwater
high time finds me caught beneath
the land i thought was in between
panes of glass shed light to see
i look at them to tell the scene

i'm underwater

broken pieces lay around
splintered from the common ground
gathered from my sense unsound
let them down

i'm underwater

i'll take what i can from here
silhouettes of thoughts unclear
and in the light of the next day
i'll remember, each had its way

the stillness of the broken trees
keep me sane in time of need
and in the light of the next day
i remain, but what has changed
Track Name: Cosmophobia
I know a girl with honeyed ears
who cries every time the bees come near
and sing her a song that I'm dying to hear
just to keep from hearing nothing

and there in the kitchen jacob was
singin' all you need is love
and I said "shit man, I don't even need the stars above;
I just want the universe to stop expanding."

said "how can you sleep,
when the world it keeps on turning -
keeps my blood churning,
when you're just sitting there on the tracks with a smile?"

And in my dreams I'm in a stream of sound
it cools me down
it rips and roars
it wipes away my pores
it calms me down
it knocks me round
I know - I knew -
I know it's true; I did - I do -
I do - I do love you,
but I can't recall
just what it is I feel at all...
