nativesprague Though there’s no mistaking the 90’s sound that this album reverberates, between the unique vocals and mix of shoegaze, I believe Pure Hex crafted something truly inspired here. Favorite track: Pedestal.

Still Dark 03:19
where did it go in the morning it was still dark when I woke up and left my bones what a shit show I’m in mourning I’ll be on time this time I swear you won’t even know where it will go in the morning it’ll be dark when I wake up and leave my bones in the morning
2.
In Time 05:02
my next door neighbors never turn of their TV the news reports must run together endlessly wonder if your mother ever wishes you weren't born do away with brain cells every week like popping corn again, again in time, in time, in time I see the sunspots every time I close my eyes you pinch creation myths like seagulls eating fries she's giving brain inside your head, it's all the same chalk it up to history and choose a different name again, again in time, in time, in time

Pedestal 04:47
it looked like a cliff from far away but she gets close and changes her mind you know these features are evasive creatures strong in the mind crack in the mirror, seven years of tryna see clearer self recognition in the ignition take me take me down can I idolize you, idolize you break me break me down can I idolize you, idolize your eyes stringing me out connected through glass and wires it’s a pain in the mouth successful liar with plenty of buyers Try to stay clean but all night there’s tiny footsteps circling me there’s fruit on the trees, fruit on the trees take me take me down can I idolize you, idolize you break me break me down can I idolize you, idolize your eyes
4.
Half Light 06:07
from the dream silent scream there was no blood on the sheets to remind me of your teeth how did I get here how do I speak and make sense at the same time I’m rotting again it’s sunny outside but I’m bathed in the wrong light shiny things are formed under pressure (under pressure) on and on, you know what to do sister doom rules the room in my body, things alive when I die they’ll multiply the water is bitter if you had your way I would sleep for a long time relief will be sweet I’m the fly in the room that was drawn to the wrong light shiny things are formed under pressure (under pressure) on and on, you know what to do what to do, again (x3) what to do
5.
when I drown myself in the sea I wash up on the shore endlessly behind my bedroom door giant hands they’ll tear it off the wall if they can you are no longer on this plane slithering backwards in my veins hold your delusion to the bone nobody’s coming to get me, I’m alone I’m alone found California trees far away so high on the mountain we climbed for days time is a patient friend but she never sleeps when I went back again it was a dream You are no longer on this plane slithering backwards in my veins hold your delusion to the bone nobody’s coming to get me, I’m alone I’m alone when I drowned myself in the sea I washed up on the shore endlessly I am the sparrow you’re the line nobody’s coming to get me, but I’m fine
6.
Wear Me Down 03:00
went back to my attic in the sun tried to pull you up here but your conscience weighs a ton I don’t want to fall into the ocean delusion and decisions getting closer and closer On and on and on I used to be a fish that loved to swim the salt went through my skin and it burned me from within I don’t want to fall into the sea the tide that pulled you under is still crawling back to me On and on and on
7.
sun, you are the one who walked away who walked away and I, I can't deny thought I was cursed everyday joy and paranoia always asleep never in bed your light from underwater where you held down my head cry all night and scheme all day why go nowhere and drown in the bay by light of night and dark of day I go nowhere and die here in the bay
8.
Sleep 04:06
somewhere behind your inner eye you’re old I’ll never dream of being cold again I think the irony is lost on me and probably my past selves would agree It’d feel like shit to understand so I won’t I had the moment in my hand but I choked I could see it coming and turned my head I’ll never look you in the eye again do you know where I’ve been do you know where I’ve been do you know where I’ve been cuz I don’t she’ll be waiting at the end with my fingers at her feet if I could hear you speak again I wouldn’t sleep I wouldn’t sleep I wouldn’t sleep
