joel-harrison I love the combo of boy\girl vocals (why isn't that done MORE in music??) and the constant wash of guitars over my ears. The sound is phenomenal... and they stand out from other bands from the northwest because of it Favorite track: Noise Filter.

Track Name: Satellite
The whole world is undersized
It's over-rated in my eyes
The distance from you leaves me magnetized
Pull me closer satellite

I stumbled into your light
I circle through the day and night
Your subtle forces leave me energized
Pull me closer satellite

And I saturate in your shadow
And I'm falling on my own
Track Name: Surfing the Gnar
I don't think that I ever knew you
Was there a past life when I called you my friend?
Others don't know, but I can see right through you
This false impression that you choose to live in

Such a lonely life
All you got is time and it never began
A narcissistic high, living a constant lie
Its not what you had planned

Je ne crois pas que je vraiment vous connue
Etait t'il un vie passe quand tu as m'appelle' "amie"?
Pas comme des autres, tu me semble transparent
Cette realite' fausse que vous avez choisi de vivre.


Such a lonely life
All you got is time and it never began
A narcissistic high, living a constant lie
Its not what you had planned
Track Name: Cabana Boy Blues
Count the days, bask in the sunlight
Find a way, souls on a joyride

Let me be your every being
Let me be your guiding light
Let me breathe your every feeling
Spread it all across the sky

Shadows wait, toes in the water
Eyes fixate, fools on a soul ride

Let me be your every being
Let me be your guiding light
Let me breathe your every feeling
Spread it all across the sky
Track Name: Noise Filter
Soul searching
Behind the bedroom glow
The smoke is clearing
Your light is visible for miles, synchronized

Our molecules move slower
Infinity breaks down
A silence brings us comfort
I stare into your vacant smile for miles and miles

The way you look right through me
You filter out the noise
It makes the whole world empty
You filter out the noise

Waiting makes us nervous
The distance makes you drown
A faster moving object, stop petrified. We realize...

The way you look right through me
You filter out the noise
It makes the whole world empty
You filter out the noise
Track Name: Nostalgia
Double vision turning black
Single whiskey in my hands
Silent whispers take their stand
Inhibitions hold me back

But you act so cold
I know you know it's true
You could change your mind like you used to
You would see I'm right, my good intentions true
If you close your eyes, like you used to

Double vision turning black
Single whiskey in my hands
Silent whispers take their stand
Inhibitions hold me back

But you act so cold
I know you know it's true
You could change your mind like you used to
You would see I'm right, my good intentions true
If you close your eyes, like you used to
I will take your side and promise to improve
If you take a breath like you used to
Track Name: Parasite City
Make my head spin like a kamikaze afternoon
Spinning, swirling down the drain
Make my lungs boil twenty hot air weather balloons
Swallowing the weary rain

I'll never sleep again, dream again
I want you under my skin

Make my feet blister from walking in your world tonight
Feel the blur of neon lights
Make my thoughts flicker and stutter with your every move
Feed on me sweet parasite

I'll never sleep again, dream again
I want you under my skin
Track Name: Always Love You
I have a light that burns throughout the night
A heavenly dream that means everything

And I will love you

I see a dove floating high above
The dreamer you seek beating back the cacophony

And I will love you

Yours is a voice that cuts through the noise
An echoing lung that brightens the sun

And I will love you
Track Name: Staring at the Sun
Spending your time staring at the sun
Nostalgic replay it's the only one
Much like gravel with life on repeat, dominant feat

Concentrate on the plan
Steal the noise, create death
I celebrate monotony as I repeat it everyday

Sitting in fluorescent lights the summer's freezing
Too busy to go outside with painted palm trees
(fluorescent sun)
Track Name: Spring Thaw
Peel the paint
Scrape away
Look at what was covered
Walls you built
Tower Still
Skyscrapers above them

Melt your heart
Warm and thaw
Turn your hurt to laughter
Dance again
On waves and wind
Releasing nights of somber

Hear and see
Cracks and creaks
Echoing foundations
Sadness stills
Granite sills
Crumble into powder

Melt your heart
Warm and thaw
Turn your hurt to laughter
Dance again
On waves and wind
Releasing nights of somber
Track Name: We're Doomed
He was the one with a golden tongue she recognized
She was the one that said the end will come almost every night

Take your time
Waste my time

He's overcome with the need to run and she's polarized
She's undone when her plans fall through and she has every right

Taking time
Wasting time

Holding on to you is like suicide
Track Name: Sludge Retail
Suffer for your comfort
Fluorescent lights hovering over
All the stupid things we buy to cover up what we really need
(disintegrate)
I'm getting older

The wanting will need it
Come purchase your feelings
The bottom line will understand

Concrete city, you're a number
Enforcing greed to feed the master
All the stupid things we buy to cover up what we really need
(disintegrate)
I'm getting nowhere

The wanting will need it
Come purchase your feelings
The bottom line will understand
