Gabby Sarmiento I had fallen in love with his eponymous debut album. Also, I had heard the demo version of "Singing Sirens" before he even announced this album. That alone got me excited. Favorite track: singing sirens.

Rance Garrison This album is simply beautiful, especially the song "The Shape." Haunting and melodic. I started listening and got to feeling sentimental and wrote a love letter to my wife, inspired by the beauty of this album while thinking of memories of her and I together when we first met nearly five years ago. This album is so beautiful with such simple yet lavish production that is sure to stir the emotions of any listener that has a heartbeat.

Cannot recommend highly enough. Favorite track: the shape.

Track Name: know your glow
Head hangs low, hangs low.
Sticks and stones break bone.
Safe at home, our home.
Those who glow will go.

Cause under the light beam,
Under the nights beam,
Under the right beam.

Under the light beam,
Under the nights beam,
Under the bright beam.

Head hangs low, hangs low.
Never shown, unknown.
Yeah, I know they know.
You will know your glow.

(Under chorus)
You have the glow on,
You have the glow on,
You have the glow on in you.
Track Name: out there
Take time to get lost.
Make sure the world don't watch.
I will walk all night.
I will make things right.
And if you stay, they won't get us if we are out there.
I'll say it won't matter if you are with me.

Where are we going?
Wait for the light to shine.
We will walk all night.
We will make this right.

Cause the whole world brings me down.
Yeah the whole world brings me down.
We can hide away beneath this cloud.
Yeah the whole world brings me down.

When will we get there?
Don't doubt me til you've tried.
I will be alright with you by my side.

In the shadows, I will wait all night.
Track Name: television by tally
Send for a hospital
Because I just can't behave.
I do not dare to speak.
I am not one to complain.

Send out your bodies overnight.
Set out for right.
We rise our bodies not our minds.
We hold on tight.

Set sail for home again.
Yeah, with this pen for a plane.
I read your letters back.
Had them til I moved away.

Send out your bodies overnight.
Set out for right.
We rise our bodies not our minds.
We hold on tight and say "goodbye."
Track Name: the shape
I'm holding pain back inside of what you are.
I'm holding back all that I can take back to the grave.

This tired heart beats and it's hard enough to breath.
Cause when you go, you go on and I would save it for a while.

Time after time you will fly like a ghost inside my mind.
Night after night you survive and we hold our hopes so high.
And all the damage inside is aware that it can hide.
Sail out to sea with the tide like the pain that's placed this ghost inside my mind.

I'm home and safe, our body's never far.
I'll hold your place, I will lay here til the end of days.
You start to fade and I'm headed for the dark.
Cause when you go, you go.
Yeah, when you go, you go.

(Under chorus)
I will be the shape...
Track Name: summer fantasy
Let's go far and free.
Walk through sand and sea.
Does she wanna be with me?
Yeah, she wants to be with me.
My summer fantasy.

She looks in my eye.
I am ten feet high.
Do you know what I could be?
Yeah, she knows what I could be.
This summer fantasy.

Do you know what I could be?
Do they know what I could be?
My summer fantasy.
Track Name: five alarm
Excited by the noise.
And the smoke we're breathing in.
Fire to the toys.
Blanket up the oxygen.

We'll go down, we'll go down, we'll go down in flames.
Let go now, let go now. We have ourselves to blame.

I hear it in your voice.
A fear of what we're getting in.
We don't have a choice.
We will have to start again.

Let's run out, let's run out, let's run we just can't stay.
There will be, there will be, there will be hell to pay.

We left home in a big hurry.
Left behind all our worries.
Track Name: singing sirens
Wait for the damage to get lost.
Deafening sound that is too soft.
Bargain and beg you to face me.
Break off this hold you have on me.

Wait for the table to turn.
I hold on just to get burned.

Stand in the flame, your flame.

Out of our bed like a banshee.
Lay in the warm spot you've left me.
In this apartment of liars.
Conductors announcements and sirens.

Wait for the moment to turn.
I know that I'll never learn.
My heart hurts, I chose to burn.

Stand in the flame, your flame.
Track Name: oceans end
We are flame.
We are night.
We only stay on some of the time.
Faded truth, the open door,
I only walk through to get home.

We are pain.
We are sky.
We are the wings of all that die.
Broken heart,
Tired tongue.
We are the right words and the wrong.

Set fire to the place.
It goes to show.
A tired sky of the setting sun turns us gold like sand.

We are.
We are.
Track Name: wet wood
Down in the garden gate.
Our names are scratched on wet wood.
The rain had washed away everything but our names.
And in the end when our ghost takes its flight,
There's so much that I've meant to say.
And as the rain gets high and hard, I know I, yeah I know I...

Take down these walls,
Even if they're left to fall.
Somewhere out there far from my home, I am left here all alone.

Under the death and waste,
Beneath the bones and teeth,
The dying dead will raise out of the earth and wait for waiting.

I'm hoping that I fade in the end.
And get a chance to start again,
Get rid of all my sin.

Take down these walls,
Even if they're left to fall.
Somewhere out there far from my home, I am left here all alone.
