Patty K. Hard to pick which song I love the most from this album. I found out about this band from a post in a shoegaze subreddit. They say they play elevator music but it's so much more than that. It can evoke so much feeling or just make you relax. I can't wait for you all to come up with more stuff. Definitely in my top 5 favorite bands. Favorite track: Ghost.

Track Name: Small Consolations
Walk through my hometown
But nobody's around
It's crowded but I can't see
Someone who knows me

Who knows me

We grew up so slow
We quickly drifted apart
When the world's constantly expanding
It increases the distance between the stars
Track Name: Night Terror Part 1
Darkness falls
The lights are out
And I can't move
Or scream and shout
The door is open
Night comes inside
Eyes are staring
Mouth open wide

And you're not there
But you're right there
You look so cold
But you just stare
The only thing
That makes sense to me
Is to close my eyes
And go back to sleep
Track Name: Ghost
As I walk into the empty house
Everyone's already there
They've been here for hours
That's the only thing that's clear

To keep myself from walking out
I find you by the stairs
But you're hardly there
and it's hardly fair

I need time alone

I was talking to some friends I know
They couldn't look me in the eye
Are they talking to me
or are they talking right through me

I'm haunted by my old regrets
My lifeline's going flat
and all the best friends that I've never met
I guess I'll haunt them right back

I have time alone
Track Name: Downer
At the bottom of a well
The sun shines once a day
I don't mind
Because when it does
I seem to melt away
I don't mind

Take off all my skin
I won't mind
They won't mind
I wonder why they're saving me
The well seems pretty permanent

I got a call today
I thought I knew the voice
I don't mind
I slipped inside this house
I thought I had a choice
I don't mind

Take off all my skin
I won't mind
They won't mind
I wonder why they're saving me
The well seems pretty permanent

Take off all my skin
I won't mind
They won't mind
I wonder why they're saving me
The well doesn't seem very permanent anymore
Track Name: Between the Sounds of Sleep
I look around
I never thought I could
Feel out the time
Feel the way I should

But I don't know
If this will last
If this should last
The way I want it to

I turn around
I shouldn't feel this way
This dream was gone
Long before I came
Track Name: Lizard
Insecure
You crawl right in
Of course you're there
It's not for you, what can you do
You're already inside
You're just glad to have a place to hide
You're just glad to be good for nothing

Peel away tell me what you see
Outside skin's the same underneath
Shed yourself to stay the same
Stay inside you won't have to leave
Outside sun won't shine uncomfortably
And you'll never say goodbye

You're still here
Of course you are
But you won't leave
You're too scared
To change this thing
Too afraid to think
Thirsty but you won't take a drink
Hurting but too warm to move

Peel away tell me what you see
Outside skin's the same underneath
Shed yourself to stay the same
Stay inside you won't have to leave
The sun won't shine on you uncomfortably
And you'll never say goodbye
Track Name: Dog
He shivers in the harshly sterile room
Bright florescent lighting cutting shadows in the gloom
His hate is really fear by a different name
He's haunted by the tubes and wires and silent shame

It's not enough
Everything you do is not enough
It's not enough
Nothing you do will ever be enough

He tries to think of all the words to say
He know the right combinations makes everything ok
Suddenly his dad's a suit no longer worn
The pregnant silence gives birth to a stillborn

It's not enough
Everything you do is not enough
It's not enough
Nothing you do will ever be enough

Curious she wanders through the door
Sniffs his restless head before softly settling on the floor
And wags her tail and falls into a dream
Because every good dream begins and ends with him
Track Name: Night Terror Part 2
I see you standing in the door
Silky shadows moving all across the floor
And I'm so exhausted
I can't see a thing
I'm so exhausted, I'm so exhausted
I can't see what's in front of me

And now you're standing on my chest
I'm quickly running out of running out of breath
I'm so exhausted
I can't seem to breath
I'm so exhausted, I'm so exhausted
I cant breath when you stand on me

If I wasn't so tired I would go back to sleep

I'm not sure about the way I feel
I'm not really sure if this is even real
And I'm so exhausted
I can't understand
I'm so exhausted, I'm so exhausted
I don't know or understand

If I wasn't so tired I would go back to sleep
Track Name: Strange Constellations
I wake up to face
Sweat stains on my pillowcase
It seems the dream has passed
Hot breath on my window glass

And as I lay awake
The sky's tapestry
Might seem so out of place
In this burned out memory

If I could close my eyes what would I see
All my friends and family
And how I sat with you, and we stitched together the stars
But now I'm here at home, and you're where you are

And as I lay awake
Promises I'll keep
Make me so afraid
Before I go to sleep
