lyrics

aught in a linguist's take
the heart that seeks and the heart that aches
the icy crash in a lover's lake
it eludes and manipulates
and creaks and cracks the tale it shakes
the essence of a word I say
the thing that burrows deep away

the beast is dying is it crying
the beat is dying is it crying

saber-toothed science faire:
is it faire to thrive on science?
when one thrives on boiled eyes
picking tips up from the table
an icy crush in a lover's lake
when one tries to find
secrets kept in dorian boxes
caught in a linguist's take
the shepherd will manipulate

the beast is dying is it crying
the beat is dying is it crying
the beast is dying is it crying
the beat is dying is it crying

I woke up this morning, found it hard to scream
I woke up this morning, found it hard to breathe
I woke up this morning, found it hard to sing
I woke up this morning, found it hard to breathe

Creatures are safer under the bed
they can cry all night when they live in your head
Creatures are safer under the bed
they can cry all night when they live in your head

cunning linguist's take
thoughts from heads and things to bake
thoughts you thought were locked and safe
ascents of your lover's wake
a sense of what you used to make
essence of your frozen lake
and all the pills you love to take

about

Ennet House Ohio

"A smooth, flowing fullness and a beat that makes it infectious and easy to listen to. It’s a sound so big it can’t quite be contained into individual songs, and each track seems to pour into the next as the album unfolds."
