Shaking of the Frame
A Lot Like Birds Lyrics


Well, I might have to diffuse this one.
Call the listeners but they don't speak the same tongue.
Send me away. You laugh and scoff and spit out false intellect.
Guess I'll let you have your way this once for the greater goal of us.
Sometimes it's better to let them win to escape the mess.
Just let it go, you already know my faith now is swayed.
Can trust be remade?
This silent fight is worse than a scuffle.
The same violent night and we both share the struggle.
Amiss, dismissed.
You might be right so take your own advice, just let it go, you already know.
Don't write about love, no more cliches!
No more delays. Glass-wristed grasp of my surroundings and dizzily shuffling forward;
That's where I'm found, pulled to the sky from the ground and spun round
In an aerial court of my peers and stripped down to only skin, bones and tears.
And the ever-chugging monolith, my inner voice, is inviting me to stay here for years.
I'm wired weird, I've grown wrong.
And sing the same damn songs to the ever-nodding audience, until my body is gone.
Quiet your open thoughts and turn the other way to make grimacing actions.
And if it's not possible, okay. Just stay that way.
Just let it go, you already know my faith now is swayed.
Can trust be remade? This silent fight is worse than a scuffle.
The same violent night and we both share the struggle.
Amiss, dismissed.
You might be right so take your own advice,
Just let it go, you already know.
Like frantically rifling through all of your keys.
There's no wind behind you but something's moving the leaves.
This place is familiar.
You used to call it your own.
Now there's nobody home.
No, there's nobody home.
Once a room is empty it has no need for a name
Or title and when a glass is empty someone fills it up or puts it away.
But when the glass broke, the room spoke in dangerous tones,
"If it's broken just leave it alone!"
We have to go! We have to go!
Let the passenger take hold, let the stranger drive you home.
We have to go! We have to go!
May this song fill up a hole.
May the room with no purpose forever be closed.
Although we left in a panic,
I took a look back at the house,
Saw it turn on its axis and vanish.
The dust enveloped the sky, the splinters fell to the earth,
Swam deep in the soil and came back to life.
It survived! It survived! It survived.

+I wonder how long I can make this username, seriously though, this was Googles big "Improvement"! +alissa calogero

I personally thought the album was about a family falling apart, but I looked up a track-by-track from the band, and yeah.
In Trances - front door
No Nature - basement
No Nurture - living room
Next to Ungodliness - bathroom
Connector - hallway
Myth of Lasting Sympathy - closet
Hand Over Mouth, Over and Over Again - bedroom
Kuroi Ledge - balcony..
Recluse - attic

I think that's all of them. Not all of them are from experience, though. No Nature was meant to be crazy and creepy, like a stereotypical basement. Kuroi Ledge ends with the character jumping from the balcony. Recluse is mostly from spiders' point of view. But you get the idea.

unfortunately for bands like this, getting 85k views on a YouTube upload is a miraculous blessing.

Michael Beaudo

I always get close to tearing up whenever cory says "we have to go" because every time i listen to this album i feel like im going on a journey and its so sad when it ends.This is probably the most emotional album ive ever listened to.

Michael Tigrett
