sleazyprincess I love the rawness when they were just a duo. this album shows that they can do it with a drummer too. Favorite track: Soup.

Jacob Gehman An appealing refinement of what made Before The World Was Big so great, Powerplant retains the songwriting and approach, while honing in on some sonic decisions that add depth.

Track Name: 123
one two three will you list it off to me
how you’re sorry you feel weird in a jubilation dream
and you’re sorry about the load feeling sorry about the load
looking pretty at the wall is my mistake in love installed
while the moth doesn’t talk but in the dress the holes you saw
keep on walking back outside to see a sigh under nice light
Track Name: Sleepless
stepped into my shoes today i paint the wall the wall is paint
holding a glass jar of change with white tape and my last name
the rooms beige it’s a mess you dream to be sleepless
i live in a gallery that no one’s ever seen
sometimes all the golden fruit falls down on top of me
Track Name: Corner Store
i get lost at the corner store
I’m picking up things i’ve never seen before
napping on a plastic coated living room
in every picture frame a picture of you
i wanna be a puzzle super glue into you
i’m falling off the table
i get stuck on the things i see
i’ve had crumbs in a bag in my pocket all week
you got lost at the corner store
picking up things you’ve never seen before
Track Name: Your Heart
you stared at your feet today i drove to you in april rains
wished it was last saturday i still didn’t know you
your mouth is like broken glass it’s the only think i’m looking at
sharpless though my new found nest has walls made of windows
your heart is high
you’re louder than the kitchen sink
i’m louder than the thoughts i think
looking at the mess i made and staring at the counter
Track Name: Kiss and Burn
you rehearse a kiss and burn
i watched you pick up footsteps from the dirt
i’m on the side of the sun in paradise
i know i’m the weekend selling sunday morning
i know i met you in a house of cards
stuck in the swoon of affection false and true
i’m on the side of the sun in paradise
i know i’m the weekend selling sunday morning
Track Name: Fast Dust
she grew up with the sheep
in a room stand on her knees
oh today, she’s somewhere today i said
i want to make fast dust something i’ve never thought of
i watched her get so high makeup sinks into her spine
like a seven am parade feeling holiness without grace
oh today, she’s somewhere today i said
i want to make fast dust something i’ve never thought of
like a bouncing rubber ball to the kid sent to the hall
Track Name: Powerplant
hold onto the hand so you can stick to the plan
a game in the pool making space out of rules
and when you get out all wet you're gonna think about them
working by the powerplant jonathan's a ladder
watching all the billboards change into
a mirror image of his lifted thought
she's like a shelf the way she looks at the wall
a stock market dance while the poetry falls
working by the powerplant jonathan's a ladder
watching all the billboards change into
a mirror image of his lifted thought
Track Name: High Rise
high rise hide and sink
someone to fill a paragraph revising stories dreamt in half
today the trumpet sounded new
it filled the thousand them's in you
high rise hides and sinks
Track Name: Soup
you walk to the trash can and throw out the soup
your mind is waiting 'cause there's so much to do
johnny gave you a postcard to write it all down
why are you so stuck kid look up from the ground
come over to my place i'll help find your fix
you have lots of potential can you feel it
your dad saw you crying when you looked at the world
sit and stare at your hands 'cause there's so much to do
crawl into the birdcage become a cartoon
'cause all of the flowers are too much for you
Track Name: She Goes By
call me up so you can feel good again
on the joy ride you swing
by she goes by flying kite drains the light from my sky
hot air balloon you look up to
from the well you sent me joy you dreamt
the light could blind your eyes but you don't mind
you wait outside
'cause she'll go by a sighing height
to lie beside your tunnel mind
'cause she'll go by
Track Name: It Gets More Blue
the city is clouds you make him the sun
you wanted that poison and bit the gun
you know it don't say much the things that he did
you'll build him a tower
he'll burn you a bridge
the nihilist tells you that nothing is true
i said i faked global warming just to get close to you
i read the book i drank the chains i made you look
and i'm still here i'm digging through the trash
i can hear the train as it moves past
the chase is as trite as the story i stage
a projection i write in a book on a page
but i won't do what i ought to
that vacant stare i make to fool you
i'm watching from bodegas on the street
and i'll say barely just how highly i can think
the arsonist tells you that it gets more blue
the things you believe in a clay-bedroom snooze
i read the book i drank the chains i made you look
and i'm still here
i'm always digging in trash
i can hear the train as it moves past
Track Name: Static Somewhere
they call me wonderful what a joke
a stillness that hopes
that the ocean breeds the cloud
a seashell with a hollow sound
tell me you are here
i know i'll find you
static somewhere
like all the books we read
they'll feed us magazines
a clown car and a fitted suit
but i'll give you all the pills
a fucked up business deal
i wonder what it's like to sit and watch the sunrise
tell me you are here
i hope i'll find you
static somewhere
