Call it love, or adventure; or just to shake the dust
From some neglected fender, call it what you must
Put some distance between the author of your diary

And who you'll be when the pages burn.
You'll say; you'll see: There is no return.
Why would you wanna return?

Lost your heart to the ocean, your road map to the wind
Found an old roller coaster, and lost your voice again
It made your pay-phone calls cryptic and your biographers cringe

(They) came unhinged: It never made much sense.
Plot lines intertwined: It always ends like this.
It's how it always is.

Foreign shores and snow-capped peaks and penniless on uptown streets;
You're smiling in a snapshot.
Ran away and run aground, the romance of the lost-and-found,
From Sukhumvit to the Bowery.
Older now, and pockets full, the ring you wore, the westward pull
A microphone, a statuette, a flashlight.
Around midnight

Call it love, or adventure; call it an escape.
Say you came here for the weather. Know it's all the same.
Say we're migratory birds and you get close to the truth
How'd you do when the pages burned?
You say: You’ll see. There is no return.
Why would you wanna return?

We're an indie pop band that lives between Brooklyn and Austin. We love old books, balmy weather, star charts and Basquiat. Our spirit animal is Sir Ernest Shackleton and our first album is about Adventure. We don't care for the red thread, the Moon in Capricorn or the Yankees. Definitely not the Yankees.
