Written/recorded for the RPM Challenge 2017 (essentially "make a new album within February").


Can't you trace the lines upon my hands and conclude
We're facing no chance

Can't you hear the beating of my heart in my chest
And guess what it means

It seems our bursting bubbles
Captured on a fast film slowed to show they're scared to lose their shape as they tear

So where do we go from here?

Can't you see
You shadow of the person that I want to be
And can't you take the hint

Abruptly interrupted by a token spoken word
Hidden beneath a cough

Often our bursting bubbles float away before the pin goes in
And the fragile skin remains intact for now

And how do we go from here?


from The Quiet One, released February 28, 2017
And: singing, ukelele, synths, programming, guitars
