about

Remote Impact Tacoma, Washington

We multiply and divide ourselves.
We add and subtract each other.
We are numbers.
We are meaningless.
Value is a gift we give to each other.
To value is to love.

Track Name: Overtaken
I learned from the way he lies
I know there's something left inside
I can't go
I learned from the way he spies
with eyes closed
There's no vacancy
He said so

Oh how the mighty have fallen to the ground
begging, "Don't let me be overtaken
I'm over-shaken won't you please
let me be alone"

I learned from the way he bites
I know there's something left in me
that won't go
I learned from the way he fights
without blows
There's nothing I can do
He said so

Oh how the mighty have fallen
Oh how the mighty could have been

How was I supposed to know he isn't you?
Track Name: Landslide
Wading through the river
Watching for the fall
Waiting on the landslide to bury us all

Coming down the mountain
Raining mud and ice
Searching for the color of my eyes

You know you want to need

Maybe we got it right this time
Hold on
Maybe we got it right this time

Wade into my river
Watch me as I fall
Holding back the landslide with our love

You know you want to please

Maybe we got it
You know you want it
Maybe we got it right
Holding back the landslide
Hold on

Maybe we got it
You know you want it
Maybe we got it right
Holding back the landslide
with our love
Track Name: Broken Mirror
It's time to set you down
There's no way out of this
Burning building except to jump
Expect to fly
I can't carry you and survive
Maybe your silence will save me this time

And it's not my place to question you
When it's not my arms around you anymore
It's not your light that guides me
And you are not my home

You are like a broken mirror
You twisted my vision
Made a believer out of me
I joined your religion and worshiped you
Now you're just another god
Who was never there
You were never there

And it's not my place to question you
When it's not my arms around you anymore
It's not your light that guides me
And you are not my home

You are gone

All that's left in this broken mirror
It's time to set you down
There's no way out of this
Burning building except to jump
Expect to fly
Track Name: Crazy One
When I hear God speak
I know it's only me
You are wondering why
He doesn't say anything

I look to the moon
and pretend I'm landing soon
You look to the stars
as if they know who you are

And I am the crazy one

You can't help yourself
Your hands are drawn to mine
You are holding out
for someone better you may never find

Certainty is the warning
Certainty is the warning I am wrong

And I am the crazy one

I know it's only me resisting entropy
I know it's only me

I know it's only you trying not to fall apart
I know it's only you

When I hear God speak
He says
Don't you come apart, girl
Not on me
You know what you are

I am the crazy one
He says
Track Name: Burn
I desire to kill God
for what he's done to you
Does that make me a sinner
Does that mean I should
burn the way I do
Burn

I desire to understand
Does that make me a loser
Does that mean I shouldn't
try the way I do
Try

Am I so morbid that you would deny me
Deny me as real
Am I so threatened by your happiness
that I cannot see clearly
Clearly

There must be some sins worth forgiving
but they are not yours
There must be some sins worth forgiving

I desire you to dream
of what we could be
Does that make me the hero
Does that mean I should
burn the way I do
Burn

You would
You would deny me as real
Track Name: Wishing You Would
How could I believe you
Were anything other than
A liar and a thief
How could I believe

If you are my anti-self
It doesn’t matter
It doesn’t matter how
You lose me
I suffer this entanglement
Of charming ups and strange downs
Wishing you would be my end

How could I believe you
Were anything other than
A liar and a thief
How could I believe
You’d leave me

If you are my anti-self
It doesn’t matter
It doesn’t matter when
You annihilate me
How could I believe
A liar and a thief, a liar and a thief
Could annihilate me

There’s no other way I’d want to go
There’s no other way, no other way, no other way
Wishing you would, wishing you would, wishing you would
Annihilate me
I’m wishing you would, wishing you would
There’s no other way I’d want to go
Track Name: Turn Around (demo)
Go ahead, test my faith
Push a little bit harder
until I'm ready to give in
How thin can I get
How long will I last without you

Turn around and touch me
I don't care why or how
Did you ever stop to think
that maybe I need you now

Try my patience once again
Push me down deeper
until hope gives way
Where starving is reborn
Where I will live without you

Turn around and touch me
I don't care why or how
Did you ever stop to think
that maybe I need you now

Hope twists and turns around in circles, around in circles
Hope twists and turns around my neck
Hope twists and turns around in circles, around in circles
Hope twists and turns around

I hold on to keep us
from falling through the black
Too ravenous to notice
there is no one here but me

Go ahead, test my faith
Push a little bit harder

Touch me a little bit longer
Hit me a little bit stronger
Push me a little bit harder
Turn around

Turn around
Touch me

Push a little bit harder
Turn around
