Noah Rhein This album is as upbeat or as dark as you want it to be, like the friend who is ready for whatever you need during a hard time.
Zac's poetry is as intricate and layered as his music, depicting the struggle in all of us to look upward without losing touch with reality. Favorite track: Frostbiter.
Eric Gedenk

Eric Gedenk A really tight record all the way through. The last two tracks are emotional sledgehammers. Wonderful listen. Favorite track: Frostbiter.

Cass Their tightest release yet, it sits in a comfortable position between the pop sensibilities of Such Things and the understated radiance of Dark Arc. Favorite track: Timshel.

Circle Hymn 00:47
Turn all eternal eternity round The circle in circle may be unbroken now Turn all eternal eternal the wheel Ah circle in circle may be unbroken still

Feverer 03:38
Bottles hold all that we know Yet the sky defies these containers water all we know is old and it breaks in the shape of that which holds to be seen changes things Hey fever leave us out of this spin Fey helix it twists on ya within Oh sleep on, sleep on old virus As we pawn weapon inside us Well the rent payers were paying rent and the parents were parenting Oh the wild eyes and holes therein Amen amen amen again to be seen changes things Hey fever leave us out of this spin Fey helix it twists on ya within Oh sleep on, sleep on old virus As we pawn weapon inside us An angel awaits at the gate waves away burning blade

In the valley of milk and honey I want a cup overrunning Make my liquor a little less bitter Maybe the guard dogs licking not biting Our moment is momentous We end the way we envision With the ideas tied to the eye lids We end the way we envision Where your headed where you’re head is Beast in the Garden Be still guarding the gate Ah lonely angel waver of burning blade Beast in the Garden Ah still guarding the gate A lonely angel waving of burning blade I'm going to burn down every last house come on come down come on get out I'm going to burn down every last house come on come down come on get out All end the way we envision with the idea tied to the eyelids All end the way we envision Where you’re headed Where your head is

Tell my sister when I'm gone I built a ladder to the sun don't you worry if we burn all the light falls back to earth deck of jokers for my hand serve no purpose in this game play your cards right maybe you can will burn out someday in the end Who says? Who says you're right? Oh tequila to kill off any woe woe woes we've got drinking free beer on the clock what could be freeer that us? no one is more free than us what could be more free than? I don't want you to think I'm down I don't want you to think I'm out though I don't want you to think I'm down and out about Who says? who says you're right? Who says? who says I do the best you can You do the best I can I do the best you can You do the best I Who says? who says you're right? Who says? who says

Good Hand 04:14
May the baying of the hounds all rapping on your backbone only ever be just that May the saying of the sounds in your seances abound only with the kindest kind of spirits And may you get a good gift all the silver brushes fall in heaps about your feet On your good hand all meaning may it get found out I hope find you the hill where you'd like to die but still live on long beyond just because you can and will and if you have to lose your hat lose your hat so that sly deciphers can search through it On your good hand all meaning may it get found out On your good hand all meaning may you just lie down

All we ate today was cake I pray the lord our teeth to break running off like mocker's jaw with blocks that beg to get knocked off eight ball or apple to bite us gnashers cast into the night Moon barks at the dog tonight young tongue set on fire Moon barks at the dog tonight weep with me in four/four time Darkness on the edge of town is swimming in stereo sound the boss is not my cup of tea averse to such authority one one one one cup of hemlock on the rocks one one one one cup of hemlock coming up Moon barks at the dog tonight young tongue set on fire Moon barks at the dog tonight weep with me in four/four time

Denarius 02:01
Recent revelations show There's a reason A reason you should know your own Belly grows bellicose know your enemy the most Anno Domini I ain't no domino but I know every knee will crease to please these present tenses In a new light A buck ain't what it once was It's an old lie but the doe folds to the bluffer Render unto Caesar what Ceasar sees as his Retail therapists These sails seldom get the gust Even Jesus made a whip and flipped shit on opportunists

Timshel 03:23
Your supplications could supply cash enough to suck up even to the worst luck So if I'm longing for all the wrong things I shouldn't long linger on such Good hearted christians whip out their weapons push them against some sinner’s side Well wishing witches were something with which to burn your sins and sticks alike You're conspicuous So I pick you up gonna push you against these teeth So if you want me get out and grapple the flavor of the eater is sweeter to the apple I was hoping we would open nothing of this sort Without warning we would join in and how the blood would pour though you're Abel still unstable I would be your Cain Oh No one takes your time No one but I

Frostbiter 04:13
When Grandad died I got his knife I cleaned the kitchen and I didn't know why Such is life as smoke in a sigh You were well on your way by the day we arrived Ah no frostbiter ah waster of days Oh no would we endure or? Ah just waste away? Your fourth grade friend in Afghanistan who's helicopter crashed in the sand Walked away with a scratch on her hand It was all that she got from what I understand Ah no frostbiter Ah waster of days Ah no would we endure or Ah just waste away? Two blue hairs stare down the bass guitar aisle reminiscing about the band we played in as a child swear to god we had the best singer in Ohio they got crazy on blow so we never really made it past the first shows though Ah no frostbiter Ah waster of days Ah no would we endure or Ah just waste away?

Pillar of Na 08:42
Somewhere where strawberry's in season ease off all your old ought nots Swallow all your swollen thou shalls Follow all yall's fallen off Oh ouroboros the cycle of the serpent look close it's something like a spring Pull out it looks like it's a helix push in and wear it like a ring Shall I lay awake Keeper on the watch or the dozers off ? Shall I lay to waste the sleepers on the watch with the knowers not ? Tell me when when the end is nigh I'll sober up and come down in time I ate my weight in your words gnawing on your proverbs now you know so know better Shall I lay awake Keeper of the watch or the dozers off ? Shall I lay to waste the sleepers on the watch with the knowers not ? Tell me when when the end is nigh I'll sober up and come down in time I ate my weight in your words gnawing on your proverbs now you know so know better Call in I will always love you to the radio either version's cool but I like the original Be that as it may in this antiquated way it's saying something other than it did back in it's day We all must get stoned we all must get stoned alone and no show We all must get stoned we all must get stoned alone and no show cura te ipsum cura te ipsum tip some back and then some cura te ipsum cura te ipsum and then some Hold on to the light cause the light never holds on long If leaving we're easy believe me that we'd be long gone Hold on to the light cause the light never holds on long If leaving we're easy believe me that we'd be long gone Turn all eternal eternity round the circle in circle may be unbroken now Turn all eternal eternal the wheel The circle in circle may be unbroken still
