darlong An intricate balance of layered melodies and soul baring emotion that exceeds expectations for a debut release. Each track reflects the gritty determination and youthful optimism of an artist who is not afraid to look at life's shadows and share the stories they hold. I look forward to his next project. Favorite track: Counting.

Track Name: Elephant
Let's deflate the elephant that's sitting in the room
Hopefully before you decide to go zoom zoom
Leaving Mothers with the pain of looking after you
And leaving Fathers with the guilt of knowing that they raised you

I don't know who made you holder of the key
But someone ought to tell you before they're taping up your scene
You should leave the keys with me
You should leave the keys with me

And let's deflate your ego, before you call all systems go
Before you wash away your halo in the scarlet painted snow
Leaving strangers to wonder at "Where did you go?"
And leaving others to learn after your tow

Well I don't know who made you holder of the key
But someone ought to tell you before they're taping up your scene
You should leave the keys with me
Or else your shoes might end up muddy
From your long walk down the road of shame
Knowing that it's you we've blamed
Yes your long walk down the road
The road of shame
Track Name: Counting
You speak so softly
that I can barely breathe
without you noticing
and I'm still waiting
for someone to sing
to sing me to sleep

Cuz it's been three years and counting
Yeah it's been three years and counting

So please bear with me
cuz it's not so easy
when you can't speak
and you know you've left a lot of weight on me
and goddamn I need some empathy
not apathy or, or even
sympathy

Cuz it's been six years and counting
yeah it's been six years and counting

But I've got all the time
yeah I've got all the time
I need to listen

And so here's the song, I wish I didn't write
just a tiresome waste of endless summer nights
an age old story of teacups gone cold
to think I could think this would never
never get old

Cuz it's been 9 years and counting
and I've watched my life go by
it's fleeting, it's fleeting
so I guess it's finally time
that I stopped Counting
Track Name: Duality Duo
He begs for her closeness
As he pushes her away
Every day saying the same Goddamned thing
You can't do this, you can't do that
But I know you'll be coming back
To me
You can't do this you can't do that
But I know you'll be coming back
To me

She looks for forgiveness
And sees there's no one home
So she tries her hand at bitterness
Adopts a ruthless tone
You call me this, you call me that
But still I keep on coming back
To thee
You can't do this, please don't do that
But I know she'll be coming back
To Me

So someone please
Explain to me
How could this really be me
If I'm truly a monstrosity
Why haven't you bereaved me?

He looks in the mirror
And wishes he could see
But the glass is darkly shrouded
With his insecurities
It could be this, It could be that
These memories keep coming back
To me
It could be this, it could be that
These memories keep coming back to me

Looking back on life
He wonders where it went
Every night reliving the same Goddamned event
Hit me with this, hit me with that
Strike the whip across my back
Beg for my forgiveness
So I can see you on your knees

Please, explain to me
How could this really be me
When you're the true monstrosity
Why haven't I bereaved thee?
Track Name: Calloused Fingers
Calloused fingers and broken strings
We're the neighbors with all these broken things
We're ignorant to all the sounds
That we make when we are screaming
At the top of our lungs

If you could just grow old
Enough to come back home
I could sleep so soundly

Sleepless nights and cold sweats
They're just some of the symptoms
That you will get
As you pray to god
To spare you one last night
Before your youth is wasted
On time gone by

If you could just grow old
Enough to come back home
I could sleep so soundly

Like I used to, like I want to
Like I need to, but just can't do
Like you used to, like you want to
Like you need to, but just can't do

If you could just grow old
Enough to come back home
I could sleep so soundly
