Stranger Everytime they split the deck, I see the card that's dealt and fall Out of hand, I give back two and get one better than before Magnificent stranger -- your scotch and cigarettes Magnificent stranger -- your turn to place your bet Magnificent stranger When the wager’s right, you'll stay all night but when the odds are low, you always go Your hand is full, your hand is played. Loaded clubs and color spades But my hand is far apart -- black diamonds and bleeding hearts Smooth operator -- on the strip you never slip Smooth operator -- but off the table you always quit when it's the fire you feel. When it's the fire you feel Fire Fire you feel. Fire you feel Stranger. Magnificent stranger

I'll Cut You 03:35
You came to me with jealousy, and a plan to make a wave Ridin’ high, convinced that I am afraid, but you can't hurt me So you wanna believe that you don't bleed, I'll cut you like a diamond I'll cut you, I'll hit you with a truth you can't destroy I'll cut you like a diamond If you believe you own my flesh, you'll fall just like the others You were wrong to come in strong, so you fell just like your brothers You can believe that you don't bleed, but I'll cut you like a diamond I'll cut you, I'll hit you with a truth you can't destroy I'll cut you like a diamond Convinced that I am afraid, but you can't hurt me You were wrong to come in strong, so you fell just like your brothers You wanna believe that you don't bleed, I'll cut you like a diamond I'll cut you, I'll hit you with a truth you can't destroy You think that you don't bleed, I'll cut you and destroy I'll cut you like a diamond. I'll cut you like a diamond

You wanna hang me up on the hook you nailed You wanna know what I think now, I might just tell the tale but I need to decide is it you or me who's the fool Cause when you decide for me, is when you will be happy Fool control over me Every now and then I get an itchy feeling Then you come in to save me from the scratching Then I think I'll go ahead and do some catching And when you decide for me, is when you make me happy Fool control over me Fool control. Decide for me. We both know it foolishly Still wanna hang you up, but on a different hook I wanna put a string on you, give you a different look (yeah) You'd like to put a string on me to get another look And when you decide for me, is when you make me happy Fool control over me Fool control over me On the hook you nailed -- you wanna hang me up But on a different hook On the hook you nailed -- you’d like to put a string on me I wanna put a string on you

Baltic Sea 03:26
Do you know? Lying heavy on the this cold dark floor and barely breathing The frozen sea, crashing waves I can't ignore, a familiar feeling Sounds like laughing, but what do we know? Do we know something of our undoing? Do we know? Do we know? Muted miles of blackened skies, something strange is at the bottom I’ll be standing over you (oh) while your blood is no longer moving Sounds like laughing, what do you know? Do you know something of my undoing? Do you know? Do you know? Do they know? Do you know? Do you? What do we know?

Impossible to see through the eye of the needle Unable to weave through the eye of the needle You can’t go through me, I'm the eye of the needle I'm the eye of the needle Confident you're passing through the eye of the needle Never changing what you do with the eye of the needle You already know that I'm the eye of the needle And everytime you miss, your failure's infinite Every attempt you make, and every stab you take I'll never see it cause I'm home sweet home Weaving the thread -- Twisting the end Piercing but missing -- It's all one illusion I'm the eye of the needle You missed the mark and I'm home sweet home Your shot in the dark, I'm home sweet home Open your sleepy eyes, you'll need to realize I'm the eye of the needle and I'm home sweet home You know how hard it is Cause everytime you miss, I'm home sweet home Open your sleepy eyes, you've got to realize I'm the eye of the needle and I'm home sweet home I'm the eye of the needle

Time is able to turn the table (and) have a lovely dance with Betty Grable Feel real. Wear that suit, wear that shoe Switch that stitch. Wear that dress, change that mess Everyone is always -- Everyone is always talking as they want this time again Into a secret soirée -- that's where you'll find my heart and turn into someone better. 1931 is where I call home Feel real. Wear that hat, wear those spats Switch that stitch. Wear that coat, gloves and tote You know me, I'm always -- I'm always longing for the time and now it's happening again I'm at my secret soirée -- that's where I've found my heart and turned into someone better. 1935 is where I belong Pearls, curls. Wear that dress, change that mess Everyone is always -- (yeah) Everyone is always talking as they want this time again Come to my secret soirée -- that's where I’ve found my heart and you'll turn into something better. 1939 is where we call home Come to my secret soirée. Into my secret soirée

Vertigo 03:27
Hallucinations. Vertigo. Dizzy. Mindless haze You cast your gaze, but all you see -- is sorrow Looking out to the depths surrounding all that you could see was blue, blue, blue fading away into an endless haunting dream My thoughts drifting away, lead me astray Mindless thinking, hallucinations in the way There’s a strange and lonesome island within a little town and all the birds that fly above must come crashing down, down, down Blue, blue, blue, it’s taking over me Crashing thoughts inside my head that cease to go away Like waves upon the ocean, I’m drowning in my mind The flood has yet to come, but I’m already hard to find Hallucinations, vertigo -- when will it end? You close your eyes, a haunting dream seems endless yet again These thoughts that grow, spin me around like vertigo Like vertigo

I still believe after all this time in a truth that will be what you will come to see that the ways of a man, now understand this if you can Understand this man and how it began In the spring I first saw you, was a gleam in my eye and then you looking back at me with a hunger inside I have never felt nor have I ever saw a connection of affection and a future for all times I fought for you and then I fought two dudes who were disrespecting you with their attitudes Nothing could stop us, nobody could top us We were two of a kind, sharing our bodies and our minds Time had passed, we were together, things were cool but then sometime in the fall, you changed the rules Your trust was not applied any longer because your girl was in your ear, confusing our love All your candy's free -- for her but not for me Why did you start questioning your faith and second guessing that my intentions were real? Acting in haste, your logic gone to waste You were stressin' over nothin' but believin’ there was somethin' to your intuition but by your own admission -- You had no facts, yet your suspicions stayed intact How could I prove to you I was true through and through? What could I do, how could I prove to you? They told me so, so now I know your love's been around the way Don't matter what you say unapologetically What happened to what we had, those special days and nights when no one could touch us, we were two of a kind Nobody could have loved you, nobody could protect you more than I, if you would have just let me What I wouldn't give just one more time if I could to see your hair blowing in the wind in June But everything has changed, everything in my life and we will never be the same since you picked up the knife They told me so and now I know your game's been around the way All your candy's free -- for them but not for me

I see you there and you're getting in the back of a car No one sees you there, but I see you and you see my stare Looking in your eyes, I try to look relaxed Now I'm in the mood and I can't go back Now I'm in the mood and I want you to know what I see (What do you see, babe?) When I see you, it's like a light in the night When it's all dark, you shine oh so bright I can't kiss you but I know that I should When you cry sometimes I wanna make you feel good Then I see you laughing all the time When you're around my soul, it shines I see your hope when I touch your hand I see your lips say that I’m your man I see you and I know that this could be real You're thinking of the same, but you're wondering if I will Looking in my eyes, you try to look relaxed Now you're in the mood and you can't go back Now you're in the mood and I want you to know what I see (What do you see, babe?) When I see you, it's like a light in the night When it's all dark, you shine oh so bright I can't kiss you but I know that I should (I’m your man) When you’re down sometimes I wanna make you feel good Then I see you laughing all the time When you're around my soul, it shines I see your hope when I touch your hand I see your lips say you're my man I wanna make you feel good I see your lips say you're my man

Is there really a heaven? Is there really a heaven?

about

Reminiscent of the '90s/00's down tempo sound, we like to describe this album as "a lo-fi electro-vintage neo-triphop experience".
Every sound was played humanly by hand except for most drum programming, some extended arpeggiated basslines, and samples from the past 100 years. Watch music videos on YouTube using link on our homepage here on Bandcamp.
