about

There’s a cohesiveness to Birnbaum’s surgical songwriting, a sort of cowboy pop that’s got one eye wandering toward outlaw territory and one fixed on catchy melodies[...]Everyday Crimes Against Objects of Desire, Vol II. sounds like the first sure strides past hesitation’s boundaries. - Caitlin White - Stereogum

With lyrics seeping in heartbreak and bitterness and a chorus that rises up to the heavens, it’s the kind of classic sound that instantly makes you weak in the knees - The Wild Honey Pie

No amount of positive praise can really capture the magic that is present in this song and the others on the album. The only thing left to do now is just press play (right now, do it). - Wordkrapht

You’ll want to sing along to it again and again. - Folk Radio UK

Track Name: Careless
My love is not a desperate love
it is open as an autumn window
where the curtains blow
and the light is splitting into light is splitting into light is splitting into light
and my blood runs slow and sweet
and the days are filled with ordinary things
my boots by the door, twinning with yours
carelessly slung into perfection

I sing this song to you
from the other room each night
while I wait for sleep to come
and I listen to the quiet hum of your voice
I’ll never pin the angle of your mind
but I’ll listen to it all my life
and isn’t that love, isn’t that love
a quiet heart, and two ears on the source
opening and opening to the luck of never knowing

and in my wildest in my wildest dreams
I throw veil after veil from the heart
but do I have the courage for what remains
in my wildest in my wildest dreams
I throw veil after veil from the heart
and find the silence beyond words
and isn’t that love isn’t that love

the waiting now is the hardest part
it’s insane I cannot touch you while we lean on your car
oh I can love again, please don’t make me love again
knowing this I choose to love only you
with all I stand to lose, I love only you
Track Name: Relief
Silence becomes you
I hear the circle close each time
and my voice just curdles
something you deserve falls to mine
honey I hope you never know this kind of quiet

how far is relief

my love becomes you
I’ve never seen you so alive, so alive
always thought i was doing right
and isn’t that the cross I hang on
but when I see you in that light you know it’s almost gone

how far is relief
Track Name: Fools
never wanted to tie you down
cause I loved your flight
you coulda done most anything
come home to me at night
my friends all warned me to stay away
said you just couldn't do right
but I let you crush me one last time
to curb my appetites

I don't know why you keep me hangin around
just to make a fool of me well oh
who's the real fool now
we had a true love
you watched it go by
cold light from a cold eye

you were listening to blood on the tracks
when I got in your car
and I saw right through you then
girl I didn't have to see far
by the time the record spins
around to side B
another hand rests on your thigh
in deepest sympathy

I don't know why you keep me hangin around
just to make a fool of me well oh
who's the real fool now
you think he loves you
man he never stood a chance
ain't no one can love you from the palm of your own hand
we had a true love
you just watched it go by
and I wanna know
yeah I wanna know
why didn't you try
Track Name: Liliana
Liliana weeping there
makeup slurring like a drunk
a consolation here and there
but lust led us to nothing much

up in the ruins
we were just boys then
starstruck and heartbroke
nothing to no one

told her it'd be okay
lay my empty hand on hers
wild hearts will bear no weight
so sleep it off now, til the birds
til morning dreams the city new
dreams it all back into place
dreams the locks on all the doors
dreams it always just the same

up in the ruins
we were just boys then
starstruck and heartbroke
nothing to no one

all I saw was you
when I fell into the orchids
closing eyes on the wheel of time
a scent like a psalm

sleep now Liliana
you've had a hell of a day
me I need a little clarity
the room is spinning like a waltz

I can almost see it
see my life without fear
it is your hand on the underside of my knee

oh now my enemy
sleeps deep inside of me
oh now my enemy
sleeps deep inside of me

Now I see the truth of it
how I pulled and choked against the bit
how my thoughts were hardly even mine
who have I been all my life?
