about

This is our second full length album, featuring all our best tunes since Swell that were not included on Spinning. For this album, we returned to where we're most comfortable, recording and mixing 100% in our basement. However, done a lot better than Swell. This is how Swell should sound. Until we get better at mixing, and then this point will be made moot.

This album features ten tracks that chronicle events in my (Eamon) life and the lives of people I know over the past six years. I mark this album as the closing of a lot of struggles that I and my friends have felt. We look forward to the years to come.

The songs were recorded largely in the months of April and May of 2016. The recording process was a perfect mix of rushed and overly perfected. I can't think of anything we wanted on this album that isn't there, or wasn't tried and removed.

A download of this album comes with a "bonus track". This bonus track is really just the actual version of It's Senior Year, Guys, because we can't sell that version. So you get it for free. It's a small change, anyway.

Track Name: Rocky Balboa Constrictor
Take it home, throw a quilt on and drink your sorrow
This isn’t over, but it’s only getting harder
I’m not saying this is fair, declaring ends to our repair
I’m not growing out of youth, I’m growing out of you

‘Cause I am so damn sick
Of watching all my friendships fade away
And washing their souls further down the drain
With everything
I've had in the heart on my sleeve

All the infants screaming “what's going on?”
As the others speak about the times that they were wronged
Running out on your friends again
Won’t bring you close to them
It’ll bring you closer to the end

‘Cause I am so damn sick of everyone
I’m growing up again, I’m moving on
from everything I’ve loved
I'd hate to be here anymore I'm done

We're sitting around, always sitting around
As you slither around, but nothing's happening
A snake bite, a terrible end
Track Name: It's Senior Year, Guys
I don’t think I love you
And I don’t think you’re worth pretending for
So hurry up, open the door
You reach your hands around my neck
And rest your weary head on it
I think it’s time to go
I think it’s time you took a walk and found some solace for your skull

I guess this is graduation from fear of
abandonment and commonplace mistakes of love
Have you seen your hands? They’re shaken up
with crippling admissions that you just weren’t enough

I don’t think I know you,
or, who is standing there in front of me and screaming
and I hate the way you’ve trapped me here
The hopeful talks of what’s to come are tantalizing my left ear
Well it’s a lovely lie
It’s a lovely thing you thought you’d say to me to make time pass me by
But I won’t let it work this time
I’ll keep my distances on high
And I won’t ever understand why do we lie to one another’s eyes

I guess this is graduation from fear of
abandonment and commonplace mistakes of love
Have you seen your hands? They’re shaken up
with crippling admissions that you just weren’t enough

We’re changing, we’re changing colors for you
We’re changing, we’re changing our tune to make you blue
Track Name: Until Death
I don’t know how you’re alright with this
‘Cause I’ve been slitting wrists over this
I know, it’s a twisted shell of the words we spilt
Over long nights sleepless, I yell
That I know that I will be your final thought

I can’t see how solidarity could cause this frequent scream
But the frequency resonates in me that I have to leave but the words keep coming to me
That I know that I will be your final thought

I’ll see you when it rains again but the earth has been so dry
I’ll see you when it pours, you’ll be walking to my door, and you’ll say hi
And I’ll walk right in between the gaze of your big teary eyes
And I’ll walk right to where you once stood when you were alive
And I know that I have been your final thought
Track Name: Unbroken/Alone
I know that your life will go unbroken
I know that you’ll spend your nights alone

Selling your fortune in the eve
is all encompassing
But tell me your battered history
That’s more my speed

I know that your life will go unbroken
I know that you’ll spend your nights alone
Track Name: Movies
You are young, and I’m scared of growing old
And losing hope of love that I hold so close
But you know, you got to say goodnight at some time
But saying bye implies it’s over, and I don’t think I’m giving up this time

But you are strong, and you know I haven’t gone
Out on my own in so long
So how can I compete with a Hollywood ending kiss?
I’m not so good with imagery or timing, so close your eyes

And I’ll see you in the background of the movie of our lives
The lights will fade and we’ll be hidden by the summer night
But we don’t need anything tonight
So watch the credits roll, and say goodnight
Track Name: Summit
With your head on the dashboard of your best friends car
It feels like life is over yet again, she just lives so damn far
But you know distance ain't the worst of it, you're warned
Because I am here, and I am flawed

But keep your head up
I know you'll make it out alive
You just keep telling yourself constantly that it will be alright
You can't be fed up
If you don't make change in your life
If all the rhythms are the same
you've only got yourself to blame after a while

So you don’t stop the swelling
‘Cause you’ve spun out of control
And I know that you’ve been taught well
But there’s so much more to know
Like you don’t need her
Yet you pray for your consciousness to wake up see her

I’ve been there before, so I know how it hurts
And I know that I tore open your insides once more
But that’s how it starts feeling better, I swear

So keep your head up
I know you'll make it out alive
You just keep telling yourself constantly that it will be alright
You can't be fed up
If you don't make change in your life
If all the rhythms are the same
you've only got yourself to blame after a while

So you don’t stop the swelling
‘Cause you’ve spun out of control
And I know that you’ve been taught well
But there’s so much more to know
Like you don’t need her
Yet you pray for your consciousness to wake up see her
Track Name: Untitled
I’ll grin as I’m sorting through my junk heap
And shifting out to human parts again to feel your heat


I hope you never underestimate my power to cope
I've been through worse than this but I don't want to slow down
I don't want to slow down
It's too late you say, I'll face away
Abandon ship it's going down today

I’ve been calling out of work sick
And pouring all my hours into power plays
To get you back
To hear your voice crack under my lack of concern


So what's wrong with me?
I can't be happy for someone who wants to be
alone or simply just a figment of a past
relationship I crashed in vain

But I note you'd never underestimate my power to cope
I'd been through worse than this and didn't want to slow down
Why couldn't I slow down?
It's too late you say, you face away
Abandon ship, I must admit lately

I’ve been calling out of work sick
And pouring all my hours into power plays
To get you back
To hear your voice crack under my lack of concern
But who’s losing this? I’m losing it
I can't be taken by this

My bones are weak
And terribly aligned for
Tracing out your figure as we speak
I take a peek
The cracking in my knees are
Telling me to stay another week
Don’t leave, you’ll wake her
Don’t leave, you’ll make it worse
Track Name: You're Funny
Smile politely as I finally catch your eye
And I wonder if you've ever noticed just how hard I've tried
to approach you in the calmest way,
A sea of mistakes that I'll make
As I am trying to convey
Just how much I enjoy what you make

But you're funny now, oh you're so funny now
You think the best thing I can do would be to laugh it out
You're funny now, I think you're funny now
Oh just wait, oh just wait…

Smile politely as the joke turns back around
I’m here to rest your legs on
You’re here to get renowned
A wave of helplessness, fear, and furious doubt
Follows these poignant sounds

You're funny now, you think you're funny now?
I'd like to see you when the next few years come crashing down
You're funny now, you think you're funny now?
When it's all, when it's all over, you'll get what you deserve.
Track Name: What's Better Than This?
I'm not any different than the year that we first met
I haven't grown I haven't learned to forgive or forget

But I hate how simple it is;
A love torn stolen kiss
A final touch of the lips
What’s better than this?

As I drive away again I see the reflection
of your house in the rear view mirror, I'll turn and run back in

'Cause I hate how simple it is;
A love torn stolen kiss
A final touch of the lips
What’s better than this?
Track Name: This Year It Will Be Different
Have you made your life decisions yet?
I’m keeping mine a secret from you
just in case we’re through
And if you’re listening to me again
Understand this ends, with you,
My relation to

But it’s hard to think about
When your life keeps getting turned around
And it’s always on the next day
That you realize that you’re fading
And you’re always alone

Is this the real life?
Or is it just one another’s thoughts come true
In this hellish hue

But it’s hard to think about
When your life keeps getting turned around
And it’s always on the next day
That you realize that you’re fading
And you’re always alone

Forty nights ago I left your home alone
But when I returned it wasn’t what I’d known
I couldn’t recognize your throat
So “who is this” I wrote and wrote

We’re changing, we’re changing colors for you
We’re changing, we’re changing our tune to make you blue
We’re changing, we’re changing guards
We’re changing, we’re changing parts of a broken heart
Track Name: The Last Of Us
I’ve been thinking about dying alone
because everyone has already gone
Are you considered a saint for being the last to go?
Spending your last few nights at home?
But I figure it’s irrelevant
You can judge yourself however you want
It’s just you and your thoughts in this empty apartment
Filled with memories you’ve lost

The contentious understanding that
It’s the last of us and I’m ready for it
We’ll turn to dust. But all your vacant eyes say
is I don’t want to die
You might be, but I’m not ready for it

But before I go I’d like to see my friends again
Is that so wrong of a request? I guess
I just wish I could have addressed

The contentious understanding that
It’s the last of us and I’m ready for it
We’ll turn to dust. But all your vacant eyes say
Is I don’t want to die
You might be, but I’m not ready for it
