Brian Baynes Sounds sorta like a more Spook Houses. Brought to light to me by Radiator Hospital posting it. I ordered the tape right after the first song. Favorite track: This Feels Like A Home?.

Track Name: This Feels Like A Home?
How many miles from me to you?
One feels like a thousand
in my eyes tonight
Do you remember what I said
lying on the bathroom floor?
"I don't want to feel like this
How many redwood trees
will I have to plant before
this feels like a home?
Do you remember what I said
lying on the bathroom floor?
"I don't want to live like this
If I can never quite recall
the name of the town where I was born,
was I ever really born at all?
Track Name: I Know; I Know
There are some things in this world
I will never understand.
But there's one thing I know; I know
I'm better with you than I was alone.
I'll think about you
when I'm falling asleep,
when I close my eyes.
If I called you up in fifty years
when we're both waiting to die,
would you talk to me? Would you comfort me?
Would you lay by my side?
Track Name: Misery Was Simpler
Do you remember when we were younger
everybody thought that I was your sister?
What I wouldn't give to turn back time
back to when misery was simpler.
Now there's track marks
cluttering your arms.
And I can't sleep at night
wondering where you are.
Do you remember that summer
you learned you were going to be a mother?
You locked yourself away for three weeks.
It was 2005 and you were barely fifteen.
Do you remember that boy who
hurt you in that way that only boys do?
Our father went to hunt him down
with our grandfather's gun on the east side of town.
Track Name: Secret Histories
I found your name written down in
some secret history,
but the words on the page were in some dead language.
It meant nothing to me.
I want to be the ghost that haunts you in your sleep.
I want to be your name floating on the breeze.
You saw my face in a picture painted
by some masters hand,
but it was a work in the modern fashion
so you were not a fan.
I want to live forever on the inside of your eyelids.
Track Name: Claim To Care
We were born to this world
a wailing mess, now the flesh of my flesh.
We were thrown to the wolves
to pay back the debts on our fathers' bets.
I don't claim to know
the calendar year,
and I don't claim to care
what happens here.
This is the age of reason.
This is the age of resignation.
