rachaelpollard Delicate keys bring the charming trio into perfection,and there is a poem in every song, this album is gorgeous experimental, hypnotic, and a breath of cool air. I can't get enough, omg and I love the vocals!! You get two distinctly amazing vocalists with The Milk Blossoms! How did they even all find each other? I don't know. It was a miracle. Fo sho. Favorite track: When We Kiss.

Parade 03:17
Returned the book with bits of glass in the spine/wanted the next person to know/I made it out alive/no there wasn't much bloodshed, you wrote the day the music lived/on the board in the kitchen/coral and wine and lilac too/all the petals filled the pool, I was like glue down the stairs trying to find you/I smashed a TV on the side of the street/tried to dissolve in our blue sheets/ but I couldn't fully/I had a dream I cut our bed in half/saw myself dancing alone, under a street lamp/coral and wine and lilac too/all the petals filled the pool/blackberries are satan’s fruit/I was like glue down the stairs trying to find you
2.
Supermoon 04:14
At the show in the city/they told us to stay inside/but I was a jackhammer against the marble floor/when we discovered our futures/were not the same color/ten years of mixing paint/we were linseed seeped collagists/rendered speechless, I found myself glass dipped/I just stared up at the supermoon/hoping it had a mouth that would swallow me down/like I was a sedative and I could just float away in the brain of the moon/no they didn't really wanna let me back in/but maybe ‘cause the moon was gargantuan/the doorman said he’d try to find you/through the mass of people in masks filtering in and out of rooms/going in and out of rooms/I had to tell him your birth name/that you were wearing all black just like everyone except for me/of course I was blue/I just stared up at the supermoon/hoping it had a mouth that would swallow me down/like I was a sedative and I could just float away in the brain of the moon
3.
Learn I’m sorry in every language/testify against your anguish/call your name out to the wind and when it comes back/oh I fall right in, I fall right in/follow you down wherever you may go/bring the scroll and the script and the fills though/I wound your name around my wrist and when it comes back/oh I fall right in, I fall right in
4.
Holy Dim 03:27
Holy dim somber/I’m stacking our books together/like it don’t even matter/I am a tightrope walker/I’m rolling thunder/and why would it even matter/suture myself together/I am a tightrope walker/holy dim, I’m rolling/and my mother said this old mind of mine is a cave with no light/and we must find a way to be alright
5.
Catalyst 03:24
Corridor lead me down to the shore/have a walk that goes nowhere/find a stone to carry home/grey catalyst it's always the same/I’m free wheeling dropping feelings I’m apart of the game/empty rise, break on through/the pitch black waiting room/sinking slow on a salted sea/ I’ve made a mess of me/grey catalyst it’s always the same/I’m free wheeling dropping feelings I’m apart of the game/I said oh it’s a black hole/it’s a spiral/it's a sinkhole/it’s a volcano/I said oh it’s a portal/it’s a cyclone/it’s a hurricane/it’s a tornado
6.
Moving Day 02:39
7.
When We Kiss 02:54
When we kiss/I see/colors behind my eyes/oh he ebbs and he floats and we flow and we sew and we sew/oh he ebbs and he floats and we flow and we sew and we sew/when we kiss/I see/ colors behind my eyes/when we kiss/I see/colors behind my eyes
8.
My heart is soft on the tongue/but it gets stuck in the teeth/it shreds and it shreds a little more/behind every single bedroom door/I sat patiently as snow/tell me something I don't know/I planned to come home to you like a refrain/instead all I got was the same, same, same/my heart it glows its undeniable blue/come a little closer and I’ll say to you/tell me something I don't know/the days keep passing/I missed the solar eclipse/did I need to see it?/I’ve got too much darkness/and it follows me home/the days keep passing but isn’t beautiful/the way that the colors change?/I could do the same
9.
I found seven empty whiskey bottles/scattered like dried petals/or orange peels/or empty shells/I remembered your flinging/unraveling across the room/like dancing ‘round a maypole/holding on tight/to spools of ribbon bursting/from your center like a dying star/I catch them in my arms/those flying sparks/I catch them in my arms
