Hello friends,

This is our very first album. It's called Grand Opening. We've put in hundreds of hours, heart, and soul into this record; we are very proud of it. Do hope you like it.

Two things:

1) You can pay whatever you want for it. We appreciate anything you want to throw our way, but we won't hate you if you don't pay us (promise).

2) Please listen to it in order, as a whole, at least once.

Thanks for your ears. Thanks for your support.

Track Name: Sutures i
You are taking so much from me
So I’m making off

Soul served for some future
But I’m through chasing rumors

I hear you calling my name
It’s always felt just the same
Track Name: For Youth
If you want me to pretend
I don’t think that I could heal again
I woke in the morning dew
Chide myself for winding up for youth
I’m sorry if I’m too discrete
Stubborn and shy is no way to leave
Living’s easy to get by
Painless to forget just when to die

A road diverged
But they both lead home
Do you know of a place we can go
Not to run not to hide
But to buy us time
So we can grow so we can know
So we can grow so we can know

If you want me to regret
Missing our window I’ll take the rest
What’s best isn’t what’s preferred
Happiness is a doubled edged word
Such is the way so it seems
Stay afloat long enough you can breathe
Living’s easy if you try
To push thoughts of flying away aside
Track Name: Lawless
You’ll be wiggling toes
Pale white, surrounding pink rose
The piggies are back from their chores
Time for bed, time for bed, time for bed

You’ll dream up wonderful woes
Quickly, brush ‘em off, don’t be soft
They’ll be disappearing soon
No regrets, no regrets, no regress

But maybe, they’ll wake up in your
Bedroom, secretly, quietly
And you’ll be screaming out loud
What about, what about, what about my
Time spent working it out
Thought I’d be done with this awfulness
Please just get out of my head
Track Name: Don't Talk (Put Your Head on My Shoulder)
I can hear so much in your sighs
I can see so much in your eyes
There are words we both could say

Don’t talk, put your head on my shoulder
Come close, close your eyes and be still
Don’t talk, take my hand, and let me feel your heartbeat

Laying here with you feels so right
We could live forever tonight
Let’s not think about tomorrow

Don’t talk, put your head on my shoulder
Come close, close your eyes and be still
Don’t talk, take my hand, and let me feel your heartbeat

Listen, listen, listen
Track Name: Disabler
Shut the doors and windows, now
I can’t hear your voice anymore
A fortnight in these formicate walls
The sky, it amplifies

Tightly shut spider legs
Curled up for some happiness
Spin your words, don’t wander in
Fear not my vanity

Those gossamer lies that you shot from your hips
And I, debonair with machine gunner lips
Oh, fire for fire, year after year
I still hear the sirens calling whenever you’re near
Track Name: Please Stay Awake
Forgive me for all the confusion
I misread the heart fueled by delusion

I would take a test or two
To prove my name to you
But you insist on throwing it right back
Oh, yes you do

Please stay awake...
So you can lead me through
Track Name: Infinite Something
Take the time off
Track Name: Windowsill
Our limbs are tongue tied when I don’t know just what to say
My heart is frozen
I keep it out on my windowsill

I climbed an eight-foot wall with ease
I scraped my knee, I shed tears of kerosene
Still I can’t hear a word you say to me

Once a furnace we shovel in the ash and sighs
Wasting our time
Looking for sparks too shy

I climbed an eight-foot wall with ease
I scraped my knees, I shed tears of kerosene
Still I can’t hear a word you say to me

Colder than hell
And I think I’m dressed for it
You say you’ve been well

Widen the frame
See what’s been hiding from me
Thaw those old bones
Track Name: Sutures ii
No more fucking sutures
Track Name: the West!
We’re making our own mess
Distressed and depressed
When life gives us lemons
We’ll move to the West!
