Jason The vocals speak to lived experience. Nothing childlike or naive. Stripped down but with just enough to keep it fluid. Connects with something inside of me and feels right. Favorite track: The Lion's Den.

Jeremy / HI54LOFI A really mellow and laid back listen, with lyrics that work as a nice companion to the internal dialogue that's often running through my head. Favorite track: Liars & Thieves.

Branimir Amazing vocals are the thing that originally drew me to this band. Smooth melodies and a chilly rhythm is the reason why I bought the album.

My first love on the album was the track "Liars and Thieves", progressing slowly towards "Constellation Lines" which became my favourite track on the album.

Great band, with a promising future. Favorite track: Constellation Lines.

kyle mahoney The vocals got me from the first line, then went on a wonderful journey with the band thru the EP.
The sound is beautifully crafted yet nice and simple easy listening.

Cant wait for a full album Favorite track: The Gathering.

They'll cut you with their tongues As a serpent would, on the run Liars and thieves, they sing to me Telling stories of a pure romantic world That isn't real Taking your guilt out of everything And don't you dare read too deep They have secrets that they keep Out from the lines and ink They'll build til' kingdom comes Crumbling down on everyone Liars and thieves all around me No doubt that the end will come As weary eyes seek disguise When liars and thieves surround me And don't you dare read too deep They have secrets that they keep Out from the lines and ink

Find A Way 04:48
Take time to unwind, then occupy my mind To find a way Speak slow, drown it out, and bare to me your soul To find a way And they won't let me know. And they won't tell it all. Give up on the weight that held you down for days To find a way Hold out for yourself, let chaos bring them hell To find a way And they won't let me know. And they won't tell it all.
3.
We connect like constellation lines Hard to tell the truth from storyline Say forgiveness is as sweet as wine Bend until the will has broken down Enter in the words, they make no sound And when the light becomes my only night With you to my right The city lights behind And we'll escape tonight And we connect line constellation lines As this road begins its great divide And the choice can stop the hands of time With you to my right The city lights behind And we'll escape tonight
4.
Let's quiet down and turn it around And I'll keep questioning myself I've gathered the pieces and dug up the ground Now I'm just trying to not make a sound Cover bones with pavement Let's start gathering Like new moves for the now They show their face then stop coming around And ask you what I've done with myself Don't say that time is all that you need Then call it direction. I'll call it defeat. Cover bones with pavement Let's start gathering Like new moves for the now

Sea The Sun 03:54
It cuts deeper when I fall inside Drew the line between my reasons and doubts Gets easy in this state of mind Fleeing out into the streets again In need of dull company Suppress me with your finest gin Heat rises when I'm in again Swore it took the thought right out of my head Keep sinking in the deep again Slip into another drink again Feel its warmth deep into my chest Impress me with your finest grin There's no going back now We'll never see the sun Only battle scars and wounds
6.
The Road 03:18
Fall into your skin I'll never wake again Walking through a dream That's silent in the end I finally found a place to call my home Had to walk this road all alone I never knew a way to let you in Push and pull we drift Out to sea, in the end When I hear your voice I'm back to where I began
7.
It's not the first words, but the last straw While catching secrets on the deep end Lock it in the iron cast we set Finding shelter in the lion's den So I'll build you up just to let you down My lonely monument And I'll build you up just to let you down My only monument To the swell, we march with perfect form At this base of wishful thinking Bridged with hushed, enlightened instruments And we're playing in this lion's den So I'll build you up just to let you down My lonely monument And I'll build you up just to let you down My only monument
