The Hotelier - An Introduction to the Album (Home, Like Noplace Is There)

"An Introduction to the Album" by The Hotelier

You shot from the hip and missed. Detaching from all of this. In physical pictures you remain, spiral ‘round yourself in figure-eight. I recoil at every new beginning. 

I searched for a way out. Don’t we all? An existentialist recall: turn in all dichotomies and truths that I gave. I felt wrong in many ways. It didn’t heal. It just got harder everyday to be still, to be passing through the throes in a daze, feeling heavy, feeling cold in my skin, in my hand-me-downs. I’m wearing everything thin. And the pills that you gave didn’t do anything. I just slept for years on end. 

So if I call, should I beg? Because I’m desperate here; a couple steps from the edge. I can’t seem to burn bright enough. I’m cold and I’m left alone. We’re all alone. Grab a hold. I know I said to not. What the fuck do I know? I had a chance to construct something beautiful and I choked.

The Hotelier - Dendron (Home, Like Noplace Is There)

And I felt the noose tighten up on your collarbone 
And I felt the gun in the small of your back 
Engraved in the stone by request, in recurse of friends dead 
Is: “Tell me again that it’s all in my head.”

Twenty One Pilots - House Of Gold (Vessel)

And since we know that dreams are dead,
And life turns plans up on their head,
I will plan to be a bum,
So I just might become someone.

She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”

longtimetraveling:

I've got a lot of loose ends, I've done some damage, 
I've cut the rope so they fray,
I've got a lot of good friends, keeping me distracted,
keeping my sanity safe,
Here, I stand on the edge of the ledges I've made,
Looking for a steady hand,
Here, I stand in the land of the rocks in the valley,
Trying to be a better man (for you),
I drink a little too much, it makes me nervous,
I've got my grandfathers blood,
I've taken a little too much,without giving back,
If blessed are the meek then I'm cursed, And I want to learn how to love,
And give it all back,
And be forgiven for all I've done. Ledges by Noah Gundersen

Just discovered this guy and I’m loving everything I hear.

The National - Apartment Story (Boxer)

We’ll stay inside till somebody finds us
Do whatever the TV tells us
Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz for days
We’ll stay inside till somebody finds us
Do whatever the TV tells us
Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz

So worry not, all things are well
We’ll be alright, we have our looks and perfume

Gayngs - "Faded High"

the morning comes
see giant clocks of mercury pouring from their eyes
give back both your times
trust it
occupied love falls between the lines

Fun fact about this whole album. Each song is at 69 bpm.

Say Anything - Say Anything (Anarchy, My Dear)

Say Anything - “Say Anything”

Condemn my race to genocide if it meant that I could lay with you
I’d listen to a piercing squeal on a loop to make this real with you
Forfeit grandma’s civil-rights if it meant I‘d save the life of you
I’d spit upon a bible, dear, if it meant I’d stay right here with you

Steel Train - Bullet (Steel Train)

Steel Train - “Bullet”

I fell in love in the back seat of your car
The road was shorter than it looked
Like ten years and two more
And I held my girl closer than was safe
Take what you want from me
I’m not afraid to turn around
To see you by my side
I felt pretty when they turned out the lights
I didn’t know just what was going on
When all my guts were telling me to run
I stuck around when I should have been
There with you
Now after all that we lost
I swear I’ll never let go

You and I both are nothing but thieves
We take what we want when we need
I had a chance for a better life
But all that I’ve known is to
Run, run, run, from a devil in disguise
Like a bullet, a bullet, a bullet into the night
We are the last generation of hope
And I wouldn’t mind if
Together we died alone
