colfax, stained glass my heart's been waiting for you riptide, mile high I long to live alone with you this is empty-hearted mania in blue skin stains, bruised brains I walk alone in empty shoes reptile, senile my everything exists for you this is empty-hearted mania in blue
I've been awake for days caught in the mid-november haze tired eyes await the year's first snow the songs stopped making sense chained to an electric fence step outside to sink into the dawn and I don't believe in love but you're all I'm dreaming of I don't have the time to get you off my mind I don't know where to start I'll make you some recycled art I hope you feel bored and lonely too I'm changing all my strings my throat is dry but still I sing chalk it up to pain and nothing else and I don't believe in ghosts but your face is white as snow I can't recall your name and I hope you feel the same
my god 02:10
I'm afraid of everybody, I'm afraid of you worshipping oblivion means worshipping the truth my god, my god here's the evidence of what I'm not my god, my god you'd burn the city just to clear the fog I believe in ceremony, I believe in fire I'll put forth a testimony, I'll be called a liar I'm a fan of bullshit, baby, understand the truth if it isn't me then sure as hell it'll be you my god, my god I possess the freedom to hate I've got my god, dear god fuck whoever told you you're the prince and not the frog oh kill the dark inside bring it to the light forty days and forty nights you'll need this to survive x2
someday soon some afternoon I'll read about it in the news in your backyard you talk to god about the heartbreak you forgot oh, the days are getting shorter oh, the winter's coming in oh, I laugh a little louder oh, I'm ready to begin yesterday at the parade everything began to fade I don't mind I'll be left behind among the dust I'll pass the time oh, my hair is getting thinner oh, my teeth are falling out oh, I'm tired of being the sinner oh, I'm crippled by my doubt
dowtown 02:24
when I close my eyes I'm seeing stars when I rest my head I'm dressed in scars I will go to a place I knew before you came around I will go downtown before you know it I'll destroy it I will let the feeling drown I will go downtown I can feel my heart begin to break I admit I've made the same mistake I will go to a forest where all tired souls are bound I will go downtown I will sink to the bottom of the sea without a sound I will go downtown
constant 01:48
time rolls with the river, darling time rolls back to you the fog is on the windows, darling the sky's completely blue and in the end it has to be that you go blind before you see in so much more than memory I feel you standing next to me the morning light surrounds you, darling the wind is in your hair the afternoon I found you, darling I knew that I was there and in this city by the sea I've found a life that I can lead a steady hang to walk with me oh let's get lost inside the trees
i am scared i'm unprepared i'm unaware of the ways i'm wrong your golden hair oh i'll be there how i would hold you all night long but i don't know a thing about no i don't know a thing about love i am tired can't sleep at night can't see the light from inside this skull wasting time on shitty rhymes it's no surprise how you push and pull but i don't know a thing about no i don't know a thing about love but i don't know a thing about no i don't know a thing about love
way down 02:17
i hide my fears way down, way down where you dry your tears, way down i can't keep living like this trying to remember your kiss replay my silly little dream oh i don't wanna fall asleep i'm spinning out of control my teeth are shaking in the cold i can't keep living like this, i know we were born apart too old, you're too old we were torn apart but you know, you know that there are tangerine skies awaiting our failing eyes time leads to healing you said time leads to dying leads to dead i'm losing sight of what's right you're not worth putting up a fight this was the way it began this will be the way it ends way down, way down


The fourth cassette release on our label has been recorded by Clarke Sondermann coming out of Anchorage, Alaska/Denver, Colorado. I remember when I have discovered his music on Bandcamp and in very short time fell into it. We talked a little bit about and we decided to work together on his first physical release. I am happy to have him in our family.

With love,




released February 14, 2015
