muffintopjhonson WHOLE ALBUM is just amazing! 1st two songs just sync for me and the rest of the album has a full blend of great sounds. Then the album ends with the song "Something Sound" and I just clapped... and was left with a "sound" feeling so to speak. Favorite track: Something Sound.

Hypocritic 03:44
This time seems There's no getting out Of the headspace that You made yourself You don't have it bad, But you're mad, and You mean to feel significant Staring down the harm, You take it to the sun To preach at all the pawns; You don't fool me Put down the guns Come take a walk Why don't you try To get along? It's not that hard It never was To be a part To be someone The kid guards its toy Like the thing is the last remaining Sign of home The freedom to say What you want like you can When you're among your own It must be tiresome To play a victim, It must feel so absurd; You don't fool me Put down the guns Come take a walk Why don't you try To get along? It's not that hard It never was To be a part To be someone Put down the guns Come take a walk Why don't you try To get along? It's not that hard It never was To be a part To be someone

Bright Ahead 03:28
A light is fading out I rush to feel it Beckoning the sound Of an open age Never had I thought I’d have to leave it Never had I guessed I would remain I hold my breath Gold rush to wait for it Slow down, savor What chills and burns You give it all you can And ask for nothing Break inside to mend What bleeds your days You wait for all that was As close as it was far I hold my breath Gold rush to wait for it Slow down, savor What chills and burns
3.
Diving Line 04:17
Don’t go that way, How I want you To say all’s at stake And to call it like it is Have to stay here (Trapped at home) With the weight that (You don’t know) If I'm underreacting Find a place to (Be alone) And the weight that (You don’t know) Is it all as it seems? Now, surfacing For another It's a distant emporium In full color, is it real? Have to stay here (Trapped at home) With the weight that (You don’t know) If you're underreacting Find a place to (Be alone) And the weight that (You don’t know) Is it all as it seems? Nothing new is ever strange To you You kept your heart So close to mine Underneath The diving line
4.
How Come? 05:00
I took the morning off To plan a weekend on Some distant day alone, Did you still wanna go? The train was hovering, A steel leviathan Our walls were paper thin You turned to me and said, How come At our best we're still wrong? And the second you called Had me thinking, how come Getting lost in someone You don't see when they're gone? When I tried answering The mighty stranger left, Reminded us of them They're so indifferent How come At our best we're still wrong? Who’s the one to outrun? Caught me thinking, how come Getting lost in someone You don't see when they're gone? And the second you called Had me thinking, how come?

Orange Days 03:29
My sun'll rise, and I know It's not much longer now Somewhere begins a future A stranger to ourselves What's left of me and you Is a geyser rushing out at night No chance to see it through, To feel it boil out from under I can't keep waking up (Somewhere, somehow I'm looking at you always) To dreams of orange days (Somewhere, somehow I'm ready to lose our way) That held us in her arms (Somewhere, somehow I'm pushing away the truth) And kept us for a while Our time has come To uncover every answer kept Beneath the white burn of August That carries us to bed What chance to see it through If the moment falls out from under And holds a heavy heart In the open odds of ever landing I can't keep waking up I can't keep waking up I can't keep waking up (Somewhere, somehow I'm looking at you always) To dreams of orange days (Somewhere, somehow I'm ready to lose our way) That held us in her arms (Somewhere, somehow I'm pushing away the truth) And kept us for a while

Much For Us 04:13
Folding at the top of your life Weekends she never your type How you gonna stop yourself? Folding at the top of your life Weak kids were never so kind Strong ones shut their mouths And weaken beneath the quiet Don’t need much for us Don’t need much for us Don’t need much for I don’t care if this is what you’re in it for I don’t care I sit around (I don’t care) I sit around (If this is what you’re in it for) I sit around (I don’t care) Asking what you’re in it for Folding at the top of your life Fall back you’re one of a kind But trip to catch twenty-two Everyone’s talking about something (Something) I don’t think I fully can understand (Understand) Or I don’t have the patience to indulge it Shaking all the upper hands Don’t need much for us Don’t need much for us Don’t need much for I sit around (I don’t care) I sit around (If this is what you’re in it for) I sit around (I don’t care) Asking what you’re in it for I sit around I sit around I sit around

You’ve seen a face Falling out of the dark To mother a whisper So half of your mind Can dare to drift off As the other stays Always wondering, Watching through the thunder For a sign of all the Monsters in the rain "Hey, hey, are you in good hands?" "Say no to drugs" "And stay like it was the plan all along" "Hey, hey, are you in good hands?" "I wish I could stay Like it was the plan all along" You said goodbyes Never meant a thing But I started guessing Though we’d gathered our best It was known for a while That all through the night You’d stayed wondering, Haunted by old dreams You could not share In fear you’d throw them all away "Hey, hey, are you in good hands?" "Say no to drugs" "And stay like it was the plan all along" "Hey, hey, are you in good hands?" "I wish I could stay Like it was the plan all along"
8.
Gone Not erased Stubborn images a memory Pull the blinds No escape My mood, television apathy Catch a film Sit alone in the back In case you’re called away again Never starts, so I thought A dream, just another sediment Done With the night Or what’s left of it anyway Mind the gap Rural flight My body slurred and carried For how long in the dark Do we wait, until you’re called away again? We have it all to ourselves So we stay, until you’re called away again Till you’re called away again Till you’re called away again Till you’re called away again
9.
I don't belong here Pass another season Move along dear It's the best kind of moment The kind that goes It's the best kind of moment When we never know, when It cuts in Like a razor blade, Smooth sail Between sky and lake It's the best kind of moment The kind we love It's the best kind of moment Passing over us The summer Melts like ice on black Pavement, Scrapes the knees And takes me back It's the best kind of moment The kind that goes It's the best kind of moment And now it's gone, oh no I've noticed You're not the same You've changed Time to save some face It's the best kind of moment The kind we love It's the best kind of moment And now it's gone
10.
In between, reaching for something sound Wanting more before a sign is found Thoughts in circles, sewed in The feedback wearing it thin Am I someplace I’d rather be Off in times different than these? I wish I knew what it’s worth Can’t get out of this myself I wish I knew what it’s worth Can’t get out of this myself I wish I knew what it’s worth Can’t get out of this myself I wish I knew what it’s worth Can’t get out of this myself I wish I knew it Burn all ties Foundation lines For another time Or a lonely lie Costing, sinking, all in Best to flip or to spin If something real Isn’t real? Can’t get out of this myself Can’t get out of this myself I wish I knew what it’s worth
