Idle Hands 04:01
Idle hands. You don't understand that this stasis will eat you up the world is your oyster but your shell is getting thin and you give in to sin again between fuzzy lines. wasting time doing nothing but fuckin' up give me a sign let me know this time that your out there sever the ties with a blade and the cross that you bear it's a game of chance. a lucky second chance and a tide to take you away from here float on your own so far from a home, a place - you've never been and never will be give me a sign let me know this time that your out there sever the ties with a blade and the cross that you bear

You can light up the room with the sparks in your eyes and put up with my wasted alibis and far across the world with cuts on my hand holding on to things that i don't understand and you've got a heart that just won't quit and I've got a head so full of shit spending all my time at the bottom of the cup all the precious time that I could have spent with you Southern city saturdays bicycle girls and drunks on the pier southern city sunday departure i can hear your heart beatin' from here southern california sunshine and darkness is all around mother of all those children don't let this world break you down hey brother I know what your thinkin' cause I was thinkin' the same thing too you know the mind moves so slow in the sunshine but not to slow for me and you (inject fuzzy indulgent guitar lead here)

Do our minds get us through? lord knows what they can do drag me along the river bank and take what you want if there's anything left to take like an old feline it will find its way back to me I got lost in your golden eights and once there was life is now just an empty nest the pithy pines and emptiness I laid some orchids on the ground it's all I could think to do for you and dirty little secrets they just hang in the air do you sense apprehension? do you even care? Jaded and lazy you just hide from the rain is yesterday with you or is everything still just the same? like an old feline it will find its way back to me I got lost in your golden eights and once there was life is now just an empty nest the pithy pines and emptiness

Sparrows 05:29
I settle in this water like your last night an owl in the desert so alone a sparrow on the rooftop can you see my eyes are open at night now? and I've gotten good at pushing things away and withering away a beautiful stone unturned some heavy ashes in the urn feeling so high and so low at the same time did your body depart before your soul? tomorrow meant something to me it's a shame you couldn't see something too and i don't want regrets well i just wanna hear you say that it's ok but if I'm a blown a speaker then you can't hear the sparrows anymore nd I've gotten good at pushing things away and withering away a beautiful stone unturned some heavy ashes in the urn feeling so high and so low at the same time did your body depart before your soul?

Why do you from the places that scare you? and run to the people that snare you into feeling safe and you run from the love right under your nose and sleep on the pillows that I bought for you and you know that uncertain feeling when life and sleep forget about you emptied hearts and broken cages misread lines and misspent youth silenced by silence cut off from you silenced by silence a world away from you you were the crow that landed on my face and left these lines just open that bottle baby and share some more of your lies there's frost on the windows come out and play do you hate yourself or did new york just make you that way? and you know that uncertain feeling when life and sleep forget about you emptied hearts and broken cages misread lines and misspent youth silenced by silence cut off from you silenced by silence a world away from you

Haywood 03:50
How is the view from the bottom of the well? do ya feel the ache in your bones when the winter swells? we are the last of a dying breed we're just what's left of the demon seed poison tongues and sugar coats are you the captain of a sinkin' ship? just take your mask off baby and let your body float we are the last of a dying breed we're just what's left of the demon seed poison tongues and sugar coats
9.
It's a mellow kind of day when cares just slip away for a while the sirens on aurora sing forget about petty things the vibrance of your youth is still there pretty girl but you won't get directions on maps or signs no where and if it's the stars you crave you can just take it to the grave in foreign rooms and in foreign places unknown to you and sometimes the floor is the ceiling it's just a point of view it's a lovers type of dread it will send you to the floor just reachin' and it's somewhat taboo doing things you know you shouldn't do in foreign rooms and in foreign places unknown to you and sometimes the floor is the ceiling it's just a point of view

about

Foreign Rooms is the sophomore release by Transient Songs. A delicate and stripped back album that reveals more with each successive listen. It's an impassioned and rich album that has a heaviness below the currents of its psychedelic and delicate currents.
