about

Owen came to Troy, NY for a visit this weekend, so we decided to make a few recordings in the basement with our cellphones and release them for our friends to hear! These demo versions will eventually be reworked and re-recorded for our next album... enjoy!

Track Name: Florida Keys
If you asked him he'd whisper "oh brother, you will figure it out when you're older.
"You can think about all that has passed, when you're ten feet underneath the grass."

Sheepishly shuffle to their beat, impressing her never came easily.
But you know it will always look good, like vacations your grandparents took.

Should've wished for a sister or brother, instead of a childhood lover.
Just give up on your teenage dreams, and swim in the Florida keys.
You can always give up on your dreams, and swim in the Florida keys.
Track Name: The Traveler
I'm traveling the world I know
Places I've been, places I'll go
I'm traveling my own backyard
Racing across in a plastic car

So won't you come with me?
We'll make things right
We'll beat the darkness with light

I'm traveling the world I've seen beautiful things
like the morning fog and the fallen leaves
I'm traveling the world I've seen terrible things
one by land, and two by sea...

So won't you come with me?
We'll make things right
We'll beat the darkness with light

I'm traveling with friends I know
Sisters and brothers from kindred souls
I'm traveling the world by train

I'm traveling the world I love with the mourning doves
who were singing their songs, I'm singing along

So won't you come with me?
We'll make things right
We'll beat the darkness with light...
Track Name: Over You
You do whatever you feel like, I don't want to be like you anymore.
Your friends were the same: never gone far away to the girls and the boys they adored.
You'd never believe me, if I were to tell you the time that I spent.
Now that I'm older I don't see you much, but the dreams that I have keep you close to my chest.

I am not getting over you, no not anytime soon.
I am not getting over you, no not anytime soon.

We grew up alongside l but never met eye to eye, not even a look.
'Cause those were the days that I stared at the back of your head throughout the classes we took.
Now I just regret it, redo or amend it, the youth that I had.
It's leaving me now, cut my roots from the ground, but you're still within me and I can't stop the sound of your voice!

Loser
Lose Her
Loser

Loser
Lose Her
Loser

I am not getting over you, no not anytime soon.
I am not getting over you, no not anytime soon...
