The soundtrack to making out with someone in a swamp.

lyrics

Baby, the act of creation is
wearing me down
along with what you're wearing
so slip in the sheets that you dove into
and let's relieve the tension
of several silent summers

I'll sing to the stars you swallow
and hide in your hair (it's hollow, don't you know?)
confide in the fire I follow
and light the ones I haven't known

Refractory glow,
I'll bathe in light and simple daze
and ask you questions
about what it's to like to live today
we'll grasp at reasons
fogging the pineal gland
we'll say fuck it
and decide to do the same again

Maybe the act of creation is
wearing me down
but now what you were wearing
is on the floor by your shoes
like ink in water or rain on a window
and we've relieved the tension
of several silent summers

I'll sing this song so sweetly
I'll sing this song recursively
and let it resound infinitely
I'll cling to the car as you drive away

Don't crawl through the night,
I just want to pass the time.
Do what it takes to make it right
but I just want to pass the time.
Don't crawl through the night
I want you to take your time
Do what it takes to make it right
I want you to take your time

I'll feast on the fare you follow
the least of which I can swallow
I'll sing to the stars you swallow
and hide in your hair, it's hollow, don't you know?

Your eyes are fleeting,
kaleidoscopic, changing meaning
lock them to mine
as we reproduce the spin-
al pleasure
that she gave me once ago
the pouring pleasure
of pressure pressing on my presence
Baby, the act of creation is
wearing me down
along with what you're wearing
so slip in the sheets that you dove into
and let's relieve the tension
of several silent summers

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."
