about

premiered at niantic "vertical" ep release 3/21/15
written in bedroom during a break in jesse landegger's bass lesson
koreatown, los angeles
torn to pieces by wild animals and rebuilt from scratch, summer 2016
placed lovingly in your open hands, fall 2016

lyrics

we know our history
and we keep it moving
we know our ABCs
oh oh oh oh oh oh

we know we're learning but
we don't know what it means
it just feels bigger than everything we're imagining

thought I felt the floor shaking, shaking
you can't make this stuff up

dress up like dead actors in movies late at night
we're too young to remember them yeah
but each time it happens I think you and I
could be really really really good friends
and all the colors shapes and sizes
what kind of party do you want this to be
could we live on floating islands baby??
I'ma wait for you... could you wait for me??

don't waste this evening
you gotta look me in the eyes
you gotta see this as an opportunity

don't want the dawn to come
don't wanna go back to the mainland
gotta love the people who love the things you're building

and then you start, you start wondering
who's paying for this whiskey??
and then you start, start wondering
what have we been risking??

dress up like dead actors in movies late at night
we're too young to remember them yeah
but each time it happens I think you and I
could be really really really good friends
and all the colors shapes and sizes
where do you wanna go?? who do you wanna be??
could we live on floating islands baby??
I'ma wait for you... could you wait for me??
