CB111 Remember when you were in high school and you got a guitar and started a shitty band with your friends? This high school band is NOT one of those. These guys are going places!

Phillip Maynard I heard this record 2 months ago and it is beautiful. There is so much emotion within each song culminating to an amazing ending. When I heard this the first time, I teared up at the end of the last track. Thanks for making such a wonderful album. Favorite track: Reveal.

Paul Silbiger The best Deafheaven clone I’ve heard. So good, some bands might start cloning An Open Letter instead.

Track Name: Coma
Snow descending from the sky
It touches my skin and it feels like flowers
I get covered in white showers
No escape from the demons wake
Now I finally understand the feeling of loss
When the one I loved so much gave my heart a toss.
I hear words
Not able to decipher
I'm so cold
Maybe I should've done what I was told
Then I wouldn't be trapped in this never ending cycle.(never ending cycle)



Snow descending from the sky
It touches my skin and it feels like rain
I get covered in white showers
No escape from the demons wake
Now I finally understand the feeling of loss
When the one I loved so much gave my heart a toss.
I hear words
Not able to decipher
I'm so cold
Maybe I should've done what I was told
Then I wouldn't be trapped in this cycle.
Track Name: The Answer in Her Eyes
Trickling off my fingers as I grazed her cheek.
Covered the people
Alone and meek.
I sat there staring into her eyes.
They were blinding, as if the rain were showing me her lies.
They were blinding
There's tragedy that comes with rain
But more so, beauty.
As the warm waters engulfed us
I cherish what as become us.
From roses growing
To water lifting
I see what the rain has become of us.
Old and dried up.
Just like the flowers bloom.(just like the flowers bloom)
I sat there staring into her eyes.
They were blinding, as if the rain were showing me her lies. There's tragedy that comes with rain.
Trickling off my fingers as I grazed her cheek.
Covered the people
I sat there staring into her eyes.
They were blinding, as if the rain were showing me her lies.
Track Name: Reveal
Seasons change
And our hearts begin to race
I wake up and smell the flowers
The aroma is way too clear to chase.
I see the signs that I pass up
Knowing they're here to help me
But when I see them they scare me
Green lights are here to help guide me
Back to my house where I
Grew up
Now I just feel more lonely
These accidents never seem to rest
And I've witnessed countless deaths
All this irony surrounds me
As I too think of what it's like
On the other side.

As long as my heart is still beating
I know that I have meaning
To someone out there
Wondering how I am and
Dreaming of when our nights were
Long and happy
Like I always wished they'd be

Wake up it's the same routine
Giving time to collect my thoughts
Trying to give my life some meaning
I think I'm ready to take my life by the hand
And pass up the green light
They mean nothing to me
Nothing at all
I've finally found some meaning.
I chase the aroma that's been given to me
See all the signs and stare back
I've finally got a hold of myself

As long as my heart is still beating
I know that I have meaning
To someone out there
Like I always wished they'd be
They'd be...


I walk along this road
Paving my way back home
Not fearing of what's to come
I've finally found my meaning(I'm not dreaming)
At the green light
At the green light
Green lights
Was there for me
For me
