No Show 04:11
All I know Is you didn’t show In the place that we both said we’d be By this time Now I see You never meant the things you said Funny how the plans went bad When the moment passed Found your baggies in the trash I don’t miss those nights I never knew what you were after Running around In the town that we both said we’d leave By this time Now I see You never meant the things you said Funny how the plans went bad When the moment passed Empty capsules in the trash I don’t miss those nights at all I never knew what you were after Always taking things so far You were siding with your devils The night you got into that car Back when we were Running around In the town that we both said we’d leave By this time Now I see I never knew what you were after Always taking things so far You were siding with your devils The night you got into that car They found you sitting at the stop light Alone, In the middle of the road

Reeling 04:23
In the darkest part of the night I will come find you Under a blanket of stars When you’re dreaming You just don’t know How beautiful you are When we first walked through the door I circled around you Lost in a halo of stars I’m still reeling But you just don’t know How far away you are Sometimes it seems like we are Only passing in the night What goes on between the light Well, I guess it’s easy to say Just don’t worry about All those things you can’t change In the darkest part of the night I couldn’t find you Lost in a halo of stars And I’m reeling And I just don’t know… Well, I guess it’s easy to say Not to worry about All those things you can’t change And maybe if I keep saying I’m sorry It just worsens the pain But I keep trying to explain I keep trying to explain

Unpleasant return Welcome back to the hive Of desperation and greed Racing and angry at first light The cracking pavement capillary We seldom think about it But we’re swallowed by Tiny passing moments of temporary pleasure Temporary pleasure It’s always temporary Aren’t we Subject to this scheme In someone else’s dream Unpleasant return Welcome back to the hive Of desperation and greed Racing and angry at first light The holding pattern constellation Seldom think about it But we’re swallowed by Tiny passing moments of temporary pleasure Temporary pleasure It’s always temporary Aren’t we Subject to this scheme In someone else’s dream Find what you need To believe in a figure I look for lies But can’t find an excuse All of the faces in the crowd Trying to disappear into the background They’re only subject to the scheme In someone else's dream

Overhaul 03:37
Trade Comfort for change I couldn’t wait I got Carried away by the Pace Anonymous face From some other state I got carried away And by the end this won’t be a home of mine That’s just gonna have to be fine When I saw you the other day There was nothing left We had nothing to say I should’ve noticed from the start That’s just how you are How the designed you Yes, I can confess I’m not impressed Sometimes I can’t even wait For the day this won’t be a home of mine That’s just gonna have to be fine Trade Comfort for change I couldn’t wait Comfort for change Yes, I can confess I’m not impressed Sometimes I can’t even wait for the Day when I can escape To some other place I can’t carry the weight anymore (I can’t carry the weight anymore)

The Feed 04:01
Filtered information Focused on the fear They’ll make all kinds of noise That makes it harder to hear All those dirty little lies You tell yourself To keep from seeming surprised But you never seem so surprised ‘Cause you know It’s always underneath Out of sight’s not out of mind That little corner That’s always incomplete Dumbing down the masses ’Til our heads are full of All those useless little lines We learn so well To keep us standing in line It’s a burden by design ‘Cause we know It’s never gonna leave Out of sight’s not out of mind Not forgotten Just floating in the sea Thought we would fall for Anything Must have forgotten We don’t bother anymore We want to believe what we see When we look at the screen We know Things aren’t what they seem They will do anything they please Never care for what you need Just feed you some impossible dream They know exactly what you need Play on our vanity and greed Until we stop remembering
6.
Wasted 03:55
In the witching hour Wander in… I’m hoping they won’t ask me Where the hell I’ve been Just the same old place where I always am Not that you would notice ‘Cause you don’t go there What a waste of time But I’m just wasting mine You can change your mind But I won’t change mine And everybody tells me It’s just that I’ve stopped changing What a waste of time But I’m just wasting mine It’s a wasted life I kind of thought you never even cared You can change your mind But I won’t change mine and What you’re gonna find out Is that I’ve stopped changing What a waste of time But I’m just wasting mine It’s a wasted life I kind of thought you never even cared

Rain 04:01
We could slip And slide through the world tonight Just dream our simple story And wait for the rain to wash… And when there’s nothing left but complications No one is at fault It’s just too far to reach Just dream our simple story And wait for the rain to wash… And when there’s nothing left but complications No one is at fault It’s just too far to reach Or wait for the rain to come and wash… Wash it all away Wash it down Wash it all away Wash it down Wait for the rain (4x) We could slip And slide through the world tonight Just dream our simple story And wait for the rain to wash… Wash it all away Wash it down Wash it all away Wash it down

The Exile 04:51
I leave here tonight Wondering what, in a day, could have Reversed the light Color Inadequate Cause for removal I opened my eyes Should’ve known better than thinking My luck had finally arrived And I always tried my best To do everything for you Hope you find a nice replacement One who does all the things I couldn’t do Good luck to you… Tangled in wire Couldn’t prevent unpredictables I checked every line Did what was asked Then brought up a problem We’re on the same side And I always tried my best To do everything for you Hope you find a nice replacement One who does all the things I couldn’t do I couldn’t do Good luck to you In the night I was trying To make sense Of it all Why I spent so much time Trying to hold up your walls I returned the next day To find I’d been replaced And that look on your face It still keeps me awake Keeps me awake

about

"A collective rich in experimentation and collaboration, Erostratus spent three days literally living in a studio piecing together their upcoming full-length. Produced and engineered by John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile) at the since-defunct Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey, and mastered by Greg Calbi (Paul Simon, Tame Impala, Fleet Foxes), their new album acts as the soundtrack to a nighttime walk through the dark corridors of New York City, exploring the streets as it simultaneously examines people and places, themes and dreams and otherworldly spaces."
