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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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?

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

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

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.
