This was a quick project to both a) have something to co-release with the digitals of Top Secret Area EP as a reward for waiting on a non-cassette release, and b) exercise writing within the confines of concisety. Also I went on a nostalgia trip recently with Short Music for Short People and it couldn't be helped!

The instrumental versions are included as bonus tracks, as well as the artwork for the instrumental version. Please keep them as separate entities!

Track Name: Leaving the Atmosphere
The echo while leaving didn't mean a thing
Functional parity

The poles of the playground at night
Were much colder than you thought they'd be

Surprised by the echo leaving

Both surprised the other showed
Track Name: Cancellation Protocol
Struggling in distinguishing
The difference between
Pity and sympathy
Oh what does that even mean?
Defenseless in (and seldom since)
Our severances, sincerely, someday soon,
Hope that means something, too
Track Name: Sixty-eight Degrees at Sundown
I worked on listening when I was listening
Dull collation
Stands to reason there'd be something better
Solvent brevity

We, all by ourselves,
Pieced it together there was nothing
That, by its structure, had to happen
I worked on having something then, that happened
You hadn't said a thing
Track Name: Last Floor
Thought you were faking it
When you collapsed
Holding your ankle
At my house on the trampoline

Waited for your dad to come pick you up
And I felt bad
The likelihood of your deception,
It was the last exchange we ever had
Track Name: The Dynamics Are Just Different
When did each breath start to matter?
More for the vacuum
When did we stop turning over?
Hands on a shoulder

A morning sun will come
To spite hollow molting

Where did our habits go?
Where, but its half-lit glow?
