about

"Love So Well"

Sung by Katie Von Schleicher, “Love So Well” is a country rock song with traces of Neil Young and Big Star, about giving up on the greatest love you’ve had in your life, and the strange calm that follows. A dream of losing yourself on the great American equalizer - the highway. “I aim my future with my hands / I am no one now.”

"Rose Room"

Crackling with anxiety and defiance, “Rose Room” sounds something like Spoon if they were more desperate and less cool, with flashes in a few choice moments of the brashness and humor of AC/DC. It is a song about the intersection of two truths. First, the tightrope we all walk to stay sane in a completely insane environment. Second, the moment when you understand that you’re the only one steering the ship and if you do nothing, you will crash. No saviors waiting in the wings.

Track Name: Love So Well
I love so well when I am leaving
But can I breathe in the filth and keep believing
The power lines a sprawl of crosses
A whistle high on the wind of the end of all things
The end of all things that refuse to change

As the light falls from my face
All my history is outpaced I find
A new peace of mind
headlights start to dot the lanes
I could be anyone
I aim my future with my hands
I am no one now

And I have seen
Your likeness blooming
In foreign fields on a screen
And I know nothing
Your mouth at work on some new laughter
Your eyes a childhood home filled with strangers
We are strangers but it's alright now

As the light falls from my face
All my history is outpaced I find
A new peace of mind
headlights start to dot the lanes
I could be anyone
I aim my future with my hands
I am no one now

Over and over now like the hand you run through your hair
The visions return each time I close my eyes you're there
I hope that that the night holds you up to the deaths head and makes you see
Every part of you that was a part of me

The end of all things
The end of all things
I was crying but I'm alright now
Track Name: Rose Room
The sound of the door my father closed
and left me alone in the wild city
where the days of nothing much
yawned out before me

and became my life I guess
holiday drunk forever
woke up in jeans on my bed
the hours gone like punched out teeth

Cal across the table on east 9th
like an angel in the steam
reached out through the dream I was caught in
first to wake me in a year

the light pours down
it calls you out
who are you now

so I found a friend and a couch and I sat down to sweat it out
every day I felt the void underneath me but I didn’t look down
I tightened my grip on the subway pole and the soft flick of pages
on the shower of light from the rose room windows on my fellow failures
to do anything well is an act of love and I needed love
to save my life

so I cut the cable to the world
and its hatred of the lonely
and while the darkness fell on midtown banks
the light stayed on beside me

the light pours down
it calls me out
who are you now

yeah I found a friend and a couch and I sat down to sweat it out
every day I felt the void underneath me but I didn’t look down
there in the rose room among all the old glory of new york
among all the people with no other warm place they could go
I set out to save my life
