shadowsets Vivid lyricism and thoughtful storytelling! I'm obsessed with this album! Favorite track: goodbye spaceship.

Rodent For bedroom recording, this is a remarkably hi-fi collection: clear, immediate, intimate. I keep taking this with me on walks, to be buoyed along through the neighborhood on a cloud of thoughtful songs. I hope she gets that new winter coat and survives to release more of her delicious work. Favorite track: drop out.

drop out 03:34
all my friends have moved away to safe expensive college and made their parents feel so proud to pay 50,000 dollars to go to parties in their dorms where everybody knows eachother and i am alone in new york with my guitar on my back standing in a subway car trying to get home from brooklyn i am alone in new york and i miss you very much just know if you get tired you can always drop out (x2) i am alone in new york singing on a sidewalk at the gowanus canal i am alone in new york the venue got shut down a crowd forms around me while my fingers freeze and i am alone in new york and i miss you very much just know if you get tired you can always drop out (x2) did you get everything your college promised? a social life, and a nice community? its funny how arranged culture turns out to be when everyone who's in your class is like you did you get your care package yet? what your roommates care package bigger? (x3) and i am alone in new york and i miss you very much just know if you get tired you can always drop out (x3)

dream song 03:47
treat me, wear me, ignore me hang me out to dry roll me, light me, smoke me say goodbye treat me like a fool wear me like your shirt i hear you rolling cigarettes now my sheets smell like smoke instead i wish you'd sing me to sleep i wish you'd visit me in my dreams you're my favorite one but nothing lasts forever it seems theres something you can't see when you leave me all alone i wish i didn't have a heart i wish you'd miss me when i'm gone you're my favorite song but nothing lasts forever it seems you're my favorite song but nothing lasts forever it seems treat me, wear me, ignore me hang me out to dry roll me, light me, smoke me say goodbye

when i'm alone i can be anything when i'm with you i know not to if i give you a bag full of words i don't understand i'd come home to words that mean nothing no more aluminum sleep pills cause i see us slow dancing at funerals if we're escaping from our covered hearts i'll only let you see my face when we're in the dark how to write a song in six simple steps do melodies float into your head because my voice gets sucked into a thousand ears and i don't know whether i'm here or not i think i'm gone now my words glue things together that are not at all the same and the silence takes them away from me how to write a song because my voice gets sucked into a thousand ears and i don't know whether i'm here or not i think i'm gone now my words glue things together that are not at all the same and the silence takes them away from me how to write a song

i remember doors and windows buildings ratting with sound the slate that slips off the roof and tears a hole into the ground i remember us laying against each other before my bedroom turned upside down and we fell into the ceiling and ah-this is not a false alarm where's the ceiling? is the roof collapsing in on us? wait, it's just the aftershock we're in a blackout in a supermarket stealing in the dark we can't leave until the shaking stops we can't leave and the world's falling apart it's disgusting when you lose control you thought that safety was so safe and pretty but underneath the smoke that piles in the streets are car wrecks in tomorrows headlines and drop, cover, hold onto the leg of your bedpost and watch plastic explode in the sky and it's too late to prepare for the earthquake count your blessings and close your eyes it's disgusting when you lose control and comfort is your only protection but in all the cookie cutter houses are babies screaming at the ground and it's too late to prepare for the earthquake count your blessings and close your eyes ah- this is not a false alarm welcome home, blowout sale, fill your shopping carts wait, it's just the aftershock two unknowns found living in the dark we can't leave until the shaking stops we can't leave and the world's falling apart it's the end of the world

goodbye, goodbye spaceship, spaceship earth, earth we'll never feel the dirt again (x2) the air we used to breathe (x2) the sun has burned you up and now we wear our spacesuits when we go to bed and nobody can kiss or even hold hands because it's much too cold and filled with radiation now we lay on the moon and miss how it feels to breathe but our eyes are filled with black empty space and we miss the christmas snow everything we used to know is gone and there's not enough space on the moon for everyone (x2) now we lay on the moon and miss how it feels to breathe but our eyes are filled with black empty space and we miss the christmas snow everything we used to know is gone everything we used to know is gone
