Ian this is easily one of the best albums of 2016. bar none. the world needs to know about this album, it's absolutely incredible. the Vinesauce references just make this album even more personal for me, but even people who don't get the references can still enjoy this opus. Favorite track: The October Coda.

Stuert Johnstone It's beautiful.
Just listen to it and you will fall in love, which will lead to the awkward situation of your parents walking in on you dry-humping your couch to the rhythm of each song... Favorite track: The October Coda.

Track Name: Bypass
LYRICS -

We’re on the bypass, we’re on the causeway
We’re in a baron wasteland
You’re so scared but don’t know why
You said you need me close by
You’re scared but you don’t understand your fear
I’m there, you know i’m always here

This moment is so important
I’m hoping it’s rewarding

And we can be friends for the night
And we can be friends for the evening

______________________________________

This walk we’ve taken, by accident, with no regrets
This walk that we’ve taken, by accident, with no regrets
______________________________________

We are the same, lonely as a sparrow in the rain
We are the same, lonely as a vulture with no gain
Track Name: Princess
LYRICS -

When did your looking glass shrink?
What did you expect me to think?
Because your world is so black and white

You’re not a revolutionary
You’re not an open mind
You’re just a precious, pretentious princess

When did your looking glass shrink?
What did you expect me to think?
Because your world is so black and white
What did you expect me to think?
I said; what did you expect me to think?
Because your world is so black and white

Where do you get off pointing your finger?
You claim to know something, it’s clear you know nothing

We’re all the same, we’re all to blame.
Track Name: Below Sex
LYRICS -

All of my heroes are just ghosts now
Trap the nerve and cause the harm
Feel it move up your forearm

I’m still tired but i’m still wired
Run it through you

I will bid farewell to my oldest enemy

Push my arm away, save my skin today
And in my flinched sleep, one moment's peace awaits

Take it away from me
You take it all away

Take it away from me
Won’t you take it all away

Heartfelt regret, sang through a cigarette
Neon wrists and burning eyes, maggots crawl but they’re disguised
Track Name: Sin Of Omission
LYRICS -

The sin of omission is clear,
You live and you die by your fear
And all you seem to know
Is how to drown in your pessimism
Well let him in and let him win I thought I fucking buried him?
You’re looking very feminine
A wedding ring is melted in

But you took it too far again my friend

Well now i’m moving on past the blurred lines that you’ve left
Well i’m moving on, I hate every part of you that’s part of me

The sin of omission is clear,
You live and you die by your fear
And all you seem to know
Is how to drown in your pessimism
Well let him in and let him win I thought that I had buried him?
You’re looking very feminine
A wedding ring is melted in

Now i’m moving on, past the blurred lines
I’m gone

Well now i’m moving on past the blurred lines
Well i’m gone
Well I hate you

Maybe someday i’ll be there when you’re beside me,
Maybe someday i’ll be there when you’re killing me
Maybe someday, i’ll be there
Track Name: The October Coda
LYRICS -

Here our dreams are forged
This place is a secret, somebody made this
Even during it’s heyday no one would’ve known
There’s a door here, I want to show you where I was born

Drive that evil spirit through his side
He died for your sins
I see no nails

Don’t go (these are my friends)
Ripping your (he made us)
Mouth open (we made us)
Kind Child (you made us)

I wish I could take you to Wedding Atlantis
But the portal is closed
Take us back to Heaven, Jack
No, only groundzero

Heartfelt regret (come here)
Sang through a cigarette (spread the word)
Neon wrists and burning eyes (I am ready)
Maggots crawl but they’re disguised (for you now)

And now I see my friend fall to ruin again

He died for your sins
I see no nails and Heaven is closed

By salt lining and stone
I will try to mend to these holes
With patchwork I learned from you
