it's a little longer than a second that every moment gets to stay it's a little wider than my eyes can get they way i remember it, anyway. every abstract notion tells me what I already know we all live life by the moment so we should just let go we’re kind and dangerous from the rears of the ostfront walking on a hill of bones I can still feel the hearts beat now I know we're on our own every abstract notion tells me what I already know we all live life by the moment so we should just let go we’re kind and dangerous

HNTD if you've got a way out, let me see it if you've got an answer, let me hear it if there's a way i can follow you down, i'll do it cause there's no other direction worth doing when you've got it made... you haunt the haunted and you've got it made so hunt the hunters... i can handle everything but the decisions so pick a number, pick the right one cause they're letters to my eyes addressed to the fears in my stomach and if i can only hold on to you you can show me. just how deadly... just how deadly... when you've got it made... you haunt the haunted and you've got it made so hunt the hunters...

facing the front behind the long border line all we want is to get across to you we must be under the impression you're more human than you let on professional professionals professional professionals as long as we don't know what it was we were missing your thieving is fine by me as long as we don't know what it was we were missing your thieving is fine by me if i cared i'd be you but i don't so i'm better. cause i don't i'm so much better

about

“Break Up is a group of songs that wrestle with loss of control. It’s about stepping out into the waves as they rise to overtake you. The songs reflect coming to terms with one’s own aging and the dynamics of personal responsibility that go with it. Pitting that which is close to your heart against what is necessary to endure all that life throws at you. Families grow and change. Cultures disintegrate. Countries descend into existential turmoil. Global order is torn apart. All of these things collide and tear into each other. Nothing goes untouched. You race to figure out what to hold on to and if it's even within reach. You lament the losses… even the ones you consciously chose to throw away.

"As a songwriter, arriving at what we call “middle aged” at a time when the culture seems to have lost all sense of direction is surreal. My children don’t have a structure in which they can fit or rebel against. Neither do I. We only have each other and somehow the immediacy of global communication makes us question if we ever trust anyone or if empathy is even worth all the trouble. When everyone talks, the conversation is lost. Each person becomes a representative of something bigger, even when they beg to just be an individual. It’s not a "breakup". This ship of civilization has begun to break up.”
