about

(Tracks 0037-0048)

credits

released January 31, 2016

For all tracks except for 11 and 12, all instrumentation, lyrics, and mixing were written by Prisoner of Earth.

The amazing guitar on tracks 11 and 12 were recorded by The Seven Dead Putnams in their house in December.

A lot of my musical inspiration comes from my friends Dream Magic and the aforementioned Seven, and I owe them a lot for the hours I've spent narcissistically badgering them with questions about the lyrics and music.

Some of these songs, as you can probably tell, are inspired by people in a romantic context. I'd like to think that my time spent with those people has made me a better person, but what kind of metric would you use for that? Anyway, thanks to you too.

I also want to thank everyone who's pre-ordered the album. You're making the world a better place.

With love,
P.O.E.

Track Name: Window To Winter
Can you close the window?
It covers us in snow
Father leaves it agape
And our breath takes its shape

Father says it’s just right
And it lets in the light
His whiskey keeps him warm
While we survive the storm

Baby Lily cries, cold
Susan’s blue fingers fold
And my shoulders shudder
We stare at the shutters

Father thinks we feel his warmth
But we only see storms
His rage, we feel the blow
Will you close the window?
Track Name: Telephone Lines
I remember you calling
It was three in the morning
You asked me to sing

It was a song we knew
And about halfway through
I wished I never knew you

I wished I never knew you
I wished I never knew you

I remember our walks in the night
Silhouette in the streetlight
And everything felt right

It was a path we knew
But as we made memories new
I wished I never knew you

I wished I never knew you
I wished I never knew you

I remember the tears you fought
And in the words your throat caught
I heard you ask me about God

I told you it would be okay
And that I’d be there for you every day
But you felt yourself fall anyway

And as you flew
As I always imagined you'd do
I wished I never knew you

I wished I never knew you
I wished I never knew you

I won’t ever listen to
That song I sang for you
Track Name: Luna
You give the sea your devoted love
While you reside in stars above
And while the sea will never leave
It is always reaching for you
Luna, Goddess of the Moon

While we build our monuments
You just watch in reverence
And while I climb, I can't let you find
My hand reaching out for you
Luna, Goddess of the Moon

If you only knew
Our perfection looks like you
The poems and the stories we write
Inspired merely by your sight

The craters of your crest
Where your endurance shines best
And we clamor to see the dark side of the moon
But Luna, that’s up to you
Goddess of the Moon

I’m content with watching you reach
For the sea, I am not as broad or deep
But I want you to believe,

If only you could believe

You were worth crashing down for
Goddess of the Moon
Track Name: Tipping Over
[instrumental]
Track Name: Into The Night
Those things you used to whisper
In those moments, when we were closer
I held them near and felt your warmth
But now my heart is tipping over

I can't tell if you're missing me, or if
You're not as sad as I wish you'd be, but
You once took my hand and held it tight, now you're
Taking off without me into the night

Go out every night and lose ourselves
Collide, fall apart, see what we rebuild
Streetlights beyond sheets of rain
Should’ve saved myself the pain

I can't tell if you're missing me, or if
You're not as lost as I wish you'd be, but
You once took my hand and held it tight,
And now I’m losing you to the night
Track Name: Desperate
You’re poison, baby
You know it’s true, you know it’s true
Think I don’t want out?
Well I do, well I do
The pawns that you play
Are as black as your heart
Is that why you live,
Is that why you live in the dark?

You’re poison, baby
You know it’s true, you know it’s true
You think I don’t know you don’t love me
But I do, but I do, ooh
The pawns that you play
Are as black as your heart
Is that why you live,
Is that why you live in the dark?

You’re desperate, baby
That much is true, that much is true
You think you can talk your way out
Because that’s all you can do
You’re convinced that to pull yourself up
You must tear everyone else down
But you’re up against the world
And you're headed for the ground

You’re poison, baby
You know it’s true, you know it’s true
You think I don’t know you don’t love me
But I do, but I do, ooh
The pawns that you play
Are as black as your heart
Is that why you live,
Is that why you live in the dark?

Running out of time
At the end of your rope
With your back against the wall
You're desperate
You're desperate

You’re cornered, baby
Nowhere to go, nothing to do
They’ve got torches, pitchforks now
Headed for you, headed for you
These games you’ve been playing, the tables have turned
Can’t trust you with anything, that much I’ve learned
You’ll be desperate for me now
When you’re buried in the ground
They’re filling your grave
You better start screaming
Track Name: Take Me To The Sea
You took me by surprise
The way you make the sun rise
I want to see you smile
See the gleam in your eyes

You took me to the sea
A warmth washed over me
And now when I see you
I see everything you could be

You took me to cure your heart
The demons there tore you apart
And when the warmth grows to a spark
The light shines on healing scars

You took me by surprise
The way you make the sun rise
I want to see you smile
See the gleam in your eyes
Track Name: Frozen Ocean
instrumental
Track Name: Your Moon
When your moon’s as high as can be
Go to the woods, come looking for me
Into the woods, come looking for me
I’ll be waiting by the big oak tree

When the crickets are singing their song
I’ll bring my guitar and we’ll sing along
You bring your voice for to sing along
The sun’s on it’s way so don’t take too long

When the leaves are turning to red
And your parents are turning to bed
When those in your house are ready for bed
Come out, take the path where the deer tread

My love, dance with me, we have all night
We’ll be with each other until the light
We can be together ’til morning light
And they say there’s no love at first sight
Track Name: Urban Exploration
VERSE 1:

What do you think would happen
When you pulled the curtain closed
Nobody can see inside but
Still everyone knows

Hiding in the cooler
Smoking on your break
Remembering your latest nightmare
Trapped beneath a frozen lake

Wondering where you can go
Wondering how to get there
Is this all you were meant to be
Or would you ever dare

The storm is blowing harder
Your time is running out
You won’t be able to get away
If you’re buried in your doubt

CHORUS 1:

Don’t you see what’s happening?
Morning might one day come
A harsh wind is blowing in
But the night has just begun

Don’t you see what you’re doing?
The Sun might grace the sky
The clouds grey obliterate
What once was warm and bright

VERSE 2:

Is this all you were meant to be?
Is there more inside to come?
This bridge burning is dangerous
When there's no where left to run

I realize now that you can't help
What refuses to be fixed
Lay your insides out for me
So I can heal this itch

This pain you feel is not your own,
It resides in some division
These cockroaches crawling out
Are blurring out your vision

Side by side, the dying light
Falling apart, the tendons frey
Your time will end tonight
Your time will slip away
