dr0oopycandle On the Water always seems to pull my heart strings a little harder with each release. These are gorgeous relatable human songs. I will love this band deeply and always. The build in Mirrormaster and the huge drop in Doomsurfing makes me feel like we're all riding beautiful horses into a battle side by side against every evil frustration in this world. Thank you all, I've always needed your music heavily without knowing it. Your lyrics are something else Fletcher, always have me ready to cry -Jem

Mirrormaster 04:03
Mirrormaster, is there another world? A naked earth? Heaven have mercy… I should make this perfectly plain. We’re all alone here. For now, we remain. But we may not always. Freedom is only a word. It depends on you to make it real. It’s yours to use at will. Know that there are those who would seek to take this away from you. Theirs is an old breed, ordinary people. Don’t live life in shadows. Love who you want to. Be what you are. You’re only here once. Each one of us is normal, human.
Doomsurfing 03:03
I am living underwater. Drowning in too much information. I let it in, I am not afraid of it. The world is what it is. As each day unfolds heart gets heavier. It is sinking deeper. Cowardice is fear never ending. It is running away, passing the blame. We want it to be easy. We dream of peace. Of justice served. It’s not a very honest world. Something blinds us to ourselves. Here on earth, we’re all worn out. Sky is growing darker. War is ours. The order of envious hearts. Greed is our mirror. But it is only a mirror…
