Karla Alice Renée It's really hard to pick a favorite track on this album because they're all so unique. 'Nightshade' & 'Lemon Tree' would round out my top 3, I think. Super excited to see where these guys end up, the songwriting is brilliant and the juxtaposition of digital/acoustic sounds creates a perfect balance. Catchy, distinct, bright fun with dark ballast. Favorite track: Rising Sand.

Track Name: Night Shade
Call me a night shade
And fight to stay awake
The moon is a waxy mirror
Peeling away in flakes
My eyes are just sinking diamonds
In the depths of a lonely sea
I thought that summer
Could spread her hair in amber waves
All over you and me

Falling again, blindly
I'll call on those friends, seldomly
Falling towards the sun again
Track Name: Rising Sand
Hear your footfalls coming round
But it doesn't do a whole lot to bring me down
Golden sunrise above the trees
Is not as sweet as when you're with me
Rise and kick up the remedy
But it doesn't have a whole lot to do with me
A to PA to R to T is not what I want for you and me

When I'm tired and I feel the darkness washing over me
Stepchild would you give me something
Hindsight is fright enough to make you understand
The rising sand

We're the field rats and run from hawks
And we're gonna check our foodstock and change our locks
If we stay here in little towns
Life is just gonna bring us down
Building up decent memories
And we'll trust in 1's and 0's to make the sea
Wind'll kick up the salty spray
While I'll be waiting on vacation days

It ain't me, I ain't no fortunate son.
Track Name: Weathervane
Temperance like a weathervane
In a snowstorm
In a silent holiday
Keep my blood warm
You, you
Climb in through
And wear the dye of the winter night
Track Name: Lemon Tree
Is this who I will always be
A spider crawling up the porcelain
Catching sunlight through a window screen
Oh my, it's not right
Looking down away from amber skies
Smoking on a stick of dynamite
Cradled up in a fire of eyes
Oh my, it's not right

Red of the rose
Staining the snow
Which came first,
I don't know
Call it a choice
That I've lost my voice
Oh my, it's not right

Fate is growing like a lemon tree
Spreads its branches over you and me
There's darkness underneath the canopy
Oh my, it's not right
Track Name: Collar & Pin
I'll come crawling out
With my fears and doubts
Painted on my memory
I hesitate to say
I've seen better days
I've been living by the hanging tree

When I was young, I never felt the rain
God give me that shield again

I will not smother my life
Always hanging from a vine
Out of my place all the time
With this glitch in my design

There's a celestial plane
Through my windowpane
But opacity it comes and goes
Collar where I've been
With an angel's pin
Show me why I was so ill-composed

A river runs without the dream of a sea
Will I feel that salty breeze

Out of my place all of the time
With this glitching in my design
Track Name: Canyonlands
The rain falls the same way
That it has yesterday
Like the solemn drops I will stay
In love with you
My dear I'm torn in two
One half belongs to you
Give your golden heart to me too
And make me whole again

With eyes on fire
I'm walking on your wire
Feel my heart,
It stops where you start

A dusty window screen
A universe between
Will it only be what it's been
A golden dream
When my days are passed
If someone were to ask
Did I waste time,
Am I satisfied?
Still my love comes answering
Track Name: Grading Curve
The fog on the window makes way, spreads away
At my finger's touch
Oh I think I told, know I told
Your ear too much
I'm human only by composition, got blood in veins
Twinging on all my nerves
With every sunset ripping through my days I'm searching for
A rising curve

I want to follow my spirit away from here
To a leafy swell across an icy sea
There the daffodils will dance at my feet
And for the first time I'll really breathe

You keep to the easy road through the snow
Follow yesterday's footsteps
You live in a kingdom of dust and haunted seas
Away from the valleys
Adventures have started to fill up my windowsill
Like fish in a barrel
Do I dare disturb the universe
The prayers become terse
Track Name: Coal Miner
The sky drives me comatose
Green grass, dark trees dress the coast
And under April rain
I'll wait for you my friend

Again, again
And feel the cold air rising
Now I'm, now I'm
Back to that five years' darling again

You have cold feet in every sense
And love by way of recompense
And with that slightest turn
My bridges home are burned

Again, again
Back to my jagged wandering
Now I'm, now I'm
Back to that five years' darling again

You tied a string around my waist in December
I can't work out its complex lace
Or these dying embers
Until this line is cut from me
I will walk in all your tracks

And under summer rain
I'll meet you my friend

Again, again
And feel that gold heart rising
Never, never
Back to that five years' darling again
Track Name: Youthemism
I won't fall asleep for fear of a creeping nightmare
A recurring dream where I'm no longer a child
And while I'm awake my heart stays wrapped in laughter
Like a winter's day kept out with gloves and coats

I want a life to call my own
No more learning through palindromes
I'd take the stars if they only shone
I'll meet my makeshift family
Beneath the shade of that willow tree
And kick my sorrows as they leave

In dreaming I see the dust pile up on unused toys
While my skeleton grows and my thoughts run cohesive and poised
But wandering calls, and my eyes will steadily darken
The chattering walls will keep me company

But night, she is persistent
And the slowest times find me asleep
My dreams have grown so consistent
That this half-life spreads like lightning on the water
And the freshest days will never keep

I want a life to call my own
No more learning through palindromes
I'd take the stars if they only shone
I'll meet my makeshift family
Beneath the shade of that willow tree
They'll keep me out of that creeping dream
That keeps my child away from me
Wake me up so that I can breathe
Track Name: Jesse, Just Look at them Grass
Red sun-kissed sky,
Oh I cry when you sigh
You don't remember me
But in a dream I was redeemed

Oh how sweet the memory
The willow tree and your heartbeat

Step down and feel your way around
The night wrapped up in black
Sadness carved into your face
A soul starving for grace
Track Name: Dusty Corners
It cracks, it slips, it falls, the doorway to my brain
Give me back my eyes, the splattering lies
Have blanketed them

But oh, signals falling from the skies
It hurts that they are just disguises
I will wait until I die
To hear your contented sigh

We are all just trapped in a box with uncharted stars
Taunting us
I will not settle in dusty corners
I'll find a way out
Whatever it takes

But oh, signals falling from the skies
It hurts that they are just disguises
I will wait until I die
To see an unveiling sky

Well my mind is bigger than all of the seas
For the power to christen them rests within me
I yearn to reach some solar array
But the brightest of days they beg me to stay

But oh signals falling from the skies
It hurts that they are just disguises
I will send to no avail
A plea past the shadowy veil.
