Matt Marder Seriously loving this EP. Transitions within and between tracks are flawless and really emotionally satisfying. The only reason these guys aren't famous yet is because their music hasn't been out long enough. Favorite track: High West.

Track Name: Intro
Sailing on a stolen ship with my brothers
Waiting for the wind to shift, the tide's been stubborn
Finally, we make it to a shore
Carry on or waste away, we're burning shadow!
Track Name: Ages Coming (Hey Hey)
I've lost a reason not to set you on fire…
Walking home and my heart skips a beat again.
Best intent but I am on my knees to mend the bends.
Who knows will we ever make it home?
Are we as lost as i am?
In this city, cant remember stopping.
Here you'll find me, please bear with me!
It seems I'm in over my head.
You'll find me hiding under the bed.
Somewhere its safe,
Needless to say...
Hey! Hey!
I think I made a big mistake…
I think we went the wrong way…
What was I supposed to say?
With sore and broken chords,
Sing out loud, "We used to be so proud."
Track Name: Soft Places
Must we squint to point out the accomplishment?
Forewarned is seldom forearmed.
(Break Step!)
It's tripping over itself but it makes so much sense with symmetry ...

Empty toasts with glasses, cut off at the impasse.
Oh, Cartesian diver, gracefully devour!
Up and down and up and down and...
Force and dynamics carry us on,
Through the static, straight into the song...

We were so serene, meant to survive.
To save the dear, the hunter must die.
With life preserves like flightless birds who'd ever even try?

Though squalor torn we quell the storm,
Let sails set the course!
A future used, the suture fused,
And what are you so tuitous for?
Track Name: Murders
I, for sport, will sing today to whisper a wind up.
If the stars lead us astray the birds overhead will guide us.
Tycho, look up! Look up!
Let's sell these people a piece of blue sky.

With a head full of steam, full steam ahead!

Here goes nothing and there goes everything.
Here goes nothing and there goes it all...

My dear Ortolan, we treat you so wrong.
Deceit, descent, and out of the cauldron.

Curses! Save your faces, your caught...

Here goes nothing and there goes everything.
Here goes nothing and there goes it all...

One caste over, and out to the sea,
Where time waits for no man, but tide waits for me.
Track Name: High West
I come to, again, from one of those dreams you can't leave
No matter how hard you try, no matter how hard you try.
She turns over and says,
"Good morning, don't you worry. It's just those stories.
They're all in your head... They're all in your head.
You've been reading too much Walking Dead."
But lately I've been dreading my dreams
They've got me armed to the teeth.
But with my girl and a little white whiskey I sleep...

I wake up, wake up, there's no gun in my hand!
This place is less familiar than where we started.
I know I can only run so far into the forest,
Before I'm running out again, out again, out again, out again....
Where she lies waiting for me.
She said "I heard you call from your sleep"
She says "How does it feel to know you're real?"
"How does it feel to know you're real?"
