about

Some of these songs were written in the form they appear on the album, others were written on guitar only and translated into electronic music, and a couple more were written years ago and reinterpreted in this style. Let the hard panned arpeggiators be your guide through the ever changing rhythms and personal lyrics that make up Nice!

Track Name: Cirrostrati and the Altocumuli
Feeling like a book
Nowhere can I look
Knives in the earth shook
Keep what's in your mind secret

Feelings from the sea
Feelings capture me
Beings of the stars
Keeping us in front of them

You're a galaxy
Spiral towards me
Track Name: Mirror Girl
I never knew if my eyes were that blue
Sealed behind your mysterious design
You take a look in that mirror
There'll be another all the same

Please go, do what you have to
I'll find your reflection

You Thought I left, but I never forget
Closer than what we had to lose
I guess that's been my experience
With a reflection like yourself

[She's my alphabet]
[You'll keep moving, looking, losing, Mirror Girl]
[Bring me your tear driven self]

Don't go, you're perfect
I lost your reflection

I hope I know how we turn out one day
You've *&#% eluded me so far
I guess that's how you're one and the same
Reflections of what all my losses are
Track Name: Tiny Old Folks
I've never really hated someone more
But all along it wasn't you
And if I hadn't turned and slammed the door
Now it's done, what can I do?

If I'd have kept it they'd have sought me out
Your namesake is a vengeful ghost
Keep away the fury in your heart
Until they find another host

[We told ourselves that we believe
At night you need to stay or leave]

Stay away, Erinyes
Find a way to help me please
Late at night I'll give you these
Just find a way to help me please

I found your number but I didn't know how to call you up
It wasn't like I had a lot to do since I missed you
Can you still see me? I guess I'll go, the ocean's falling off
I left once, and now again so I lose you

Stay away, Erinyes
Find a way to help me please
Late at night I'll give you these
Just find a way to help me please
Track Name: We Kill Together
If you go alone
Then we can be friends
It's stripped to the bone
I can't take you home

Block out the sun
A funeral's mind can tell
I'll get him knocked down
His life is gone

You can't know my dream last night
I don't know my own
If you'd come back to me
I'd surely say no

Bring me your alphabet
It's sprinkled with lies
You think your my architect
My mind's made of stone

We kill together
Because you told me not to
We are together
And you can't see me
Erase the weather
But there's a cloud above your life
You made me do it
And so we take the fall together
Track Name: Chrysalis
We face the sun
Forget everyone
And I look to you
How can this be a dream
You look to me a beam
Of all things gone that don't belong

Life relaxes you surrender
Our endeavor will remember
The sun is not your enemy

I am the amethyst
We can decipher this
Who will deliver us into the Chrysalis

You're all glowing bright
This night is yours

We've gone away
I ask you to stay
To grow not decay
She'll never intersect
You're just a dialect
That calls me back when songs go wrong

My self will resound as the purest sound
And linger in your mind when you think of me
Forever

Life relaxes you surrender
Our endeavor will remember
The sun is not your enemy

I am the amethyst
We can decipher this
Who will deliver us into the Chrysalis
Track Name: Bike Ride
I'm not a lie, I know this
It's not a sign, but I can't resist
I feel the wind and forget it
She's all I see, but does she exist?

I go where suburban streets at night take me
Speak no sound, the lights have all gone off in town

Keep Thinking

We'll take a ride telling secrets
Nowhere to hide in the night's breeze
Speed down the street so we don't forget
Just one more lap around my circuit
Track Name: Cumulus
She'd never go towards the fear
Lifting his spine kills the man
Breaking the fall I stumble in
"Rest now," she said, becoming wind

I never know what to think
Still getting lost in your mystique

This is like dark light and I know why
Cover me in thorns and light
Grounded, but I'm floating and I know why
Cover me in thorns and light the way

^*@#(@)(&$)*^*!@^&%#@
They'll run away to keep you weak
Lifting their knives is just a trick
Counting out loud their alphabets

I never know what to think
Still getting lost in your mystique

You're a cosmic glowing that I can't see
Cover me in thorns and light the way
Fly me to your suns throughout your galaxy
Cover me in thorns and light way

Break down your walls and see what's left
Break no more hearts or feel their breath
Live for the night to see your center
I'll keep your eyes and watch you splinter!

[Cirrus]
