Flint I'm detecting shades of early Death Cab and some playful lo-fi pop experimentation, and most importantly I'm detecting a bunch of really good songs. One of those times where your only real complaint is that it's too short. Favorite track: How the World.

Heartbreaker, peacemaker Which side will you choose today Don't worry, just hurry up Standing there at the gate For a second I thought That I wasn't worthy for a minute of your time All this trouble I made Was it more than you could take Or could you find a way to handle it The royals, the plans they made Were washed by the passing of time Can you wash away with me Standing there at the gate For a second I thought That I wasn't worthy for a minute of your time All this trouble I made Was it more than you could take Or could you find a way to handle it

I was walking, it was dark outside And I swear that I saw your face from a different place Yeah, I saw your face from a different angle And then I tripped into another town And there were lights that shone all around, lights all around I still saw your face, but it was mangled I wait every day To hear the words that you used to say But they never come out So I'll just put my head in the clouds Try to make some sense, try to figure out Just what I mean I was sifting through time and space And I swear that I heard you speak, but it sounded bleak Yeah, i heard you speak, but it wasn't the same And then I zoomed out of the picture And there was nothing but flying shapes that looked like your face And all of these shapes formed the Milky Way I wait every day To hear the words that you used to say But they never come out So I'll just put my head in the clouds Try to make some sense, try to figure out Just what I mean And nothing seems to make sense at all Everyone we know is in free fall And nothing seems to make sense at all Everyone we know is in free fall

Just a blink of the eyes And your sister's alright Good things are waiting outside So just forget what you know It's about time to let go Everyone's waiting outside We're strapping in for the flight We cannot sleep at night Somehow it still seems alright We're tossing turning machines Our chances are getting slim Wait for the night to begin But either way we won't win We're tossing turning machines Stop Don't turn out like that But even if times are bad Good things are waiting outside We'll raise our fists to the sky Prove that it's still worth a try It's almost time for the night We're strapping in for the flight We cannot sleep at night Somehow it still seems alright Aaaaahhhhhh Our chances are getting slim Wait for the night to begin But either way we won't win We're tossing turning machines We're strapping in for the flight We cannot sleep at night Somehow it still seems alright We're tossing turning machines Our chances are getting slim Wait for the night to begin But either way we won't win We're tossing turning We're never learning The bridges keep on burning And in the end we're all just machines

Heard you were right When you said you could figure out all of my thin dreams Heard you could find What was going on when I woke up from a deep sleep Oh my god It's not all what it seems Oh my god It's falling down on me It's not the first time that I'm clinging onto you It's not the first time that I don't know what to do I only think about it I'm trying to work out it What does it mean You had a plan To give up everything and look inside of my mind It was in your hands But you gave up everything that you thought you could find Oh my god Just let me get some sleep Oh my god The answer's not in the sheets Sometimes the world likes to throw out everything you own Sometimes the world likes to eat you out of house and home Oh, how the world How does it work

This complication Controls the population We've got to work now We've got to work now Sunday mornings Were just a warning For what's left to come now What's left to come now Standing in the shadow of trees I'm counting all the edges of these Heartfelt ridges Tears on the bridges That made a pathway That made a pathway Left you after class On the under-overpass That is quite alright You'll be stuck up there all night Things, they happen too soon In the afternoon No time to change your place You destroyed the human race It's so hard to stay true In the afternoon Well, your eyes are getting weak Your tongue can hardly speak Lonely farmer Waits for his daughter She'll never come, now She'll never come, now This religion Drowned in superstition That made us work, now It doesn't work, now Milk that fell from stars And silver steel guitars All these things you want But they just seem so far
