Heat Shimmer Olympia, Washington

Two Vermonters and a Kentuckian wound up in a rainy, grey-green place. The rest is history, y'all. Other than the stuff that's yet to come, which is a lot.

Track Name: Soft Serve
No use in buying flowers from the store
Sooner than later I will turn to dirt
It don't get me down when I think about it
My organs as flowers makes me feel like shit
Don't wanna hear your voice
I'd rather be buried deep underground
Don't wanna hear you sing
I'd rather be broken glass, into sand, drifting off
Won't wait till tomorrow to feel better
Won't wait till spring comes to feel lifted
Won't wait till I'm old to forgive myself
Best to get high and forget about it
Best to get high and forget about it
Best to get high and forget about it

Nighttime looks best
Thru a silver screen
Don't look at me
Don't look at me
I can't forget
Such a harsh stare
Don't look at me, oh please
You are burning with your--
Track Name: Boys on the Run
Set yourself on fire
Let go of desire
These hands are for healing but
The heart will destroy you

How could you remember something so lost
A faded vision to me now
How could you remember something so lost

Boys on the run, boys on the run , boys on the run, don't touch me

I am a liar
I am a liar
To have run so far
And face the same

How could you remember something so foggy
An ancient dream lost to me now
How could you hold on to something forgotten

Boys on the run boys on the run boys on the run
Don't touch me

How could you remember something so lost
A faded vision to me now
How could you remember something so lost

Boys on the run, boys on the run , boys on the run, don't touch me
Track Name: Unearthly
Sleep
What a wonderful dream
I'm underwater and I'm
Feeling power and I'm
Being pushed and being pulled
And you're surviving and you're
You're so much better and you're
So much bigger

Get out of my dreams

I found something
To hold on to
Sending tingles down my spine
So sorry to let go
But I can't stay here
You're gonna watch me float away

Get out of my dreams
Track Name: Dead Sam
bloody mess on the side of the road
i am overcome and weightless as i leave you far behind
as a mirage you have reappeared for me 1 million times
all i feel is jaded at yr vacant milky eyes

dead sam, dead sam

little thieves strayed too far from your homes
masked trash thieves night spirits making use of all gone wrong
i would say that ill miss you and i love you but
in all truth i will leave you at the end of all my thoughts

dead sam, dead sam
Track Name: Earth Angel
the body sleeps
so tired from carrying weight
but the mind's awake
and the fingers are twitching away
i find myself
back in your bed
on a winter's night
listening to you sing

earth angel
earth angel
angel
earth angel
earth angel
angel

wake up my darlin
everything's twisting away
and i haven't felt so cold in years
everything's twisting away

fallen youth
you say as yr sleeping away
yet i remain
trapped in the depths of my brain

earth angel
earth angel
angel
earth angel earth angel
angel, angel
Track Name: Blood on your Hands
hold my heart in yr hands and
squeeze the blood between yr fingers
do you want to tug on harp strings or
do you want to let go

im gonna thrash like a wild animal and im
going to get what i want and im
going to weave you the most ethereal web

crawl outta yr sleeping holes little people
today the sun calls u forth
and the ocean pulls u down

hold my heart in your hand and
squeeze the blood between yr fingers
do you want to tug on harp strings or
do you want to let go

what can you encapsulate in there?
you been afraid of truth for far too long
somethin good at the tips of your toes and
still to terrified to let go
what can you encapsulate in there?
you been afraid of truth for far too long
somethin good at the tips of your toes and
still to terrified to let go

hold my heart in yr hand and
squeeze the blood between yr fingers
do you want to tug on harp strings or
do you want to let go

to let go
Track Name: Travis the Chimp
I'm slowly dying, you let this happen to me
my silver spoon has emaciated me
my hair is growing, cutting would make me a slave
I wear this clothing only to hide my frame

what do you think they would see if I went into the light
skeleton in his black cowl, get him out of our sight

Wellness read as submission, propogation of the tamed
happy to be how I am. I was made to do this thing
skeletal shut-in making the hall of fame
I read my spreadsheet now I'm playing the waiting game

what do you think you would see if I went into the light
skeleton in his black cowl, get him out of our sight
Track Name: Skinned
its no use
you said it so easily
your skin breaks
away from you freely

shed your breath
hold it in deeper
i will live
forever, I'm strong enough
Track Name: Gently Used
Am I locked out of my body?
Floating still on a cloud
I can't feel you when you touch me
I can't hear my thoughts out loud

I know I'm not brand new but I'm
Feelin gently used and I
Whisper to you
Use me use me use me used

I'm not going anywhere
Repeated like an alarm
I'm not going anywhere
I won't do you no harm

I know I'm not brand new but I'm
Feelin gently used and I
Whisper to you
Use me use me use me use use used

Time to be shameless
Cause I'm getting braver
And it burns like the embers of a once great flame
But I'm strong and I will blaze again
I will blaze again
I will blaze again
I will blaze again oh use me use me use me used

You smell like all my favorite memories
Track Name: No Tornado
I wanna see u breathin
In and out
Yeah you'll wanna feel me seethin
Flowing hard and burning your tongue
Cause you were talking nonsense
To confuse my troubled soul
I know I've turned around now
And I think I'm coming back for more

You think you're fucking drowning
But you've got a fish inside yr lungs

I'm growing stronger
I'm not falling liquid anymore
I'm made of stone now
I am a mountain in the storm
You're falling down now
You're lost like dust inside the wind
Don't get me wrong now
You're no tornado I'm just bored

You think you're fucking drowning
But you've got a fish inside yr lungs
