Hayden Karnitz when you find out the guy from ava luna has a side project and you make a mental note to check it out because eh he seems like a nice enough guy but you never do until you eventually forget about it all together then rediscover it on bandcamp and download it for free and actually like it then feel guilty about not buying it so you buy it..

Track Name: Um Are You Gonna Finish That?
five dollar breathing hole
in the spirit of all mankind
so climb out of your sleeping bag
we can do it again tomorrow

and i'm taking it all in stride

seven nights in the juniper
is as much as you can expect
it's like your parents just dropped you off
and you don't even have a phone
call home

and we're taking it all in stride
Track Name: Loons + Divers
loons + divers
i can feel your ghosts
and they're not alone
the writing's all over the wall

loons + divers
if you need it most
if you need it know
the writing's all over the wall
takes a while after the fall

i had a dream that they came for us
we weren't having any fun

oh cadavers
what you feed the most
is your allotrope
the writing's all over the wall
when your stomach is a rabbit hole
you don't need a zone
the writing's all over the wall
took a while after the fall

i've been looking for a single ray
hello moonlight
hello sunlight
i've been looking for a single ray
hello moonlight
hello sunlight

loons + divers
i can see your ghosts
and they're not alone
the writing's all over the wall
you can not atone
and you needn't know
the writing's all over the wall
takes a while after the fall

i had a dream that they came for us
we weren't having any fun
Track Name: Essin'
hey
hello
what's your name and profession?
do you know if you're ready to go?
it alone?
can you carry 30 lbs in a daze, two children in tow?
it's oh

would your fingers know
if i used them as an ashtray even if you thought that i didn't smoke?
and if so, would you drive to the doctor with your knees 'cause that's all you know?
it's oh

at the five and dime, would you touch me if i promised you that you'd have a good time?
by design i forget about the people who forget to tell me i shouldn't mind
it's i

but if it's lose or win, well i hardly think a christian god would suffer this one as a sin
it's not it
if it seems complicated well it's not much more than a spin
essin'
Track Name: Blow Away
mike i said you gotta get out of the way
you're never gonna see it's not efficient
you wanna run your hands thru your hair
you're never gonna get it right
you blew it away blew it away

blow away!

i hear you rocked a buoy or anything else
i've been around the block and back a few times
a sack lunch, a primer on how you're never gonna sleep the night
you blew it away blew it away

blow away!!
Track Name: Split
i decide the rules but i know not when to stray
last night's cemetery signed in on the make
you're a centerfold, would you say it's not too late?
you notched another inquisition, ditched em in your wake
i decide the rules but you ditch them in your wake
Track Name: Perfect Dark
wanna sabotage heaven's gate? just playing the same same same same same same same same

sane or hot topic max the max of the top to top layer cake c-cake layer

play a trick seven times it's not for the fame f-fame fame ah fame-f fame fame
