about

This song first appeared, with less bells and whistles, on Strong Bones + Teeth

lyrics

You stood at the edge of the world and then jumped off,
swam around through space until you found the next drop off.
Curiosity led you past any map and beyond hope;
no chance, no thought of ever turning back
and you're running out of air...

You stood at the eighth wonder of the world and then thought how,
no one has seen it yet, who needs to?
You could settle there if you tore it down.
Individualist, ignorance led to this
but to say you're intentions were no good?
Not true! Not good enough!
Nothing is for you!
You can't help it so burn it into the air.
Singe the atmosphere...

You swear you didn't know?
You knew.

You know what you want to say but you don't say a thing
because you don't know what it means.

You swear you didn't know?
You knew.

You think it's all a joke?
Well ha ha ha...

We are natives of New England and currently base our operations out of Athens, GA.

We're part of Nobody's Favorite Records and The Branch Collection: two obscure, amorphous groups of folks who collectively pool our efforts of creativity- primarily those of the musical variety. These monikers give us the appearance of added legitimacy.

We are human.
