April Friedman I've been following the music of Mr. Tennant for quite some time, and it's awesome to hear how awesome his music has become. These introspective Sufjanesque songs (with lots of cool instruments!) are a delightful listen. Favorite track: My Thoughts Keep Me Company.

Track Name: You
i can't believe in you
you seem so far away
where have you gone today

i don't know whats holding me back
i don't care where you'd go
if i left you all alone

my heart is sad
it's probably my fault not yours
i can only get upset
Track Name: Oh My God
oh my god where do you see me in a year
oh my lord i would much rather disappear
it did come and left a mess for us to clean
i don't know when i will see you again

the seasons do change but nothing can slip away

what the hell have i been doing with my life
where are you when i call when i need help
oh my god rescue me from all of these things
that do haunt me in the night by my bed
oh my lord i was so wrong to disregard
Track Name: Mystery City
oh mystery city that we would live in
oh mystery people that we would live for
and all of the time I have idolized your brother
such energy you put in where is that recognition

i won't let you go

the streets of this place are swept clean of disgrace
I know you can find problems but i'll just ignore them
Track Name: My Thoughts Keep Me Company
the train ride to the city side
is not the same without you
i watched the sun set again
i am tired of my old ways
i tried to write it all down
but it just came flooding out

my thoughts keep company

same old tune in my head
i don't know where it came from
watched the stars as they fall
i made time to see them all
the forest burns bright red
and i don't know where i am
Track Name: Bandaid Parade
all my friends locked inside again
locked inside my heart
shut them out shut them out again
shut them out for good

bandaid parade
all my wounds all my sorrow

hide from yourself watch the tv
the visuals keep you up at night
you can't seem to breathe
you're drowning on dry land
try marching through this world
don't make eye contact in this procession
