"The title says it all! This exhilaratingly lethargic brand of pop music à la goblinpunk Dani House will forcibly knock you out, and have you singing in your sleep to dreams of your own scenes of heartbreak over and over again. It's turned us all into emotional masochists, and we couldn't be happier." - Tiny Mix Tapes

Track Name: Never Learned to Swim
The monochrome glare of the sky
As it lends all its colors to the leaves
It seems you're even taking summer with you
As you're leaving me
Oh and I wish I could rewrite your songs
'Cause you refused to take them along
And now that's all I have left
The autumn air is a drug that hits you hard with memories
So potent it's almost a time machine
All the years go by like leaves
The mask you wear is so beautiful
I never cared what's underneath
Well now I know, and pardon me for saying
That it's ugly just like me
Oh and I wish that I could rewrite time
And then I'd never pay you any mind at all
'Cause you're buried in it

I can't stop drowning in my sorrow
Because I never learned to swim
And you were the only ship
That could ever navigate this sea
Your face is setting with the sun
And if I had to choose just one, I'd probably choose wrong
Track Name: willow leaves
Though overcasting now
The sky from glaucous to deep grey
The leaves seem still to 'luminate
A sea of emerald shines behind
A celadon snow of willow leaves
Track Name: One Mile Away From Love
I'm tired of love songs, I'm tired of life
But I can't sleep it off
I'm tired of feeling, I wanna be numb
But I can't drink it off
I'm tired of thinking, I wanna be dumb
Help me turn it off
Well you would, but you won't
Cause I'll never see you again
And I would, but I won't
Cause I'm dying to see you again
The sign reads one more mile away from love
I'm empty and hoping that I'll find someone
It seems however far I go, I'm always one mile away from love
I'm tired of these billboards with misleading phrases
Like "help is on the way"
I'm tired of hitchhiking these lonely highways
I fear I'm here to stay
I'm tired of being tired, I wanna be not tired
But you won't let me sleep
You've managed to leave me, so won't you be decent
And also leave my dreams?
