sethery27 I love the sound and the energy that O'Brother puts into their music. They do a great job at making their music fill the space that it is played in - whether that is headphones, a car or a concert. Plus, the guys are genuinely kind and thoughtful. Favorite track: Soma.

Corey Cordray This is O’Brother flexing their range as a collective group of insanely talented musicians...they’ve captured a mood for the album and take you every which way they want to. Beautiful, haunting, and heavy in all the right places. I’ve been waiting a long time for their next release and they certainly did not disappoint. Favorite track: Killing Spree.

Track Name: You and I (Intro)
you and i, we’re not that much better
Track Name: Soma
i was hoping you’d open the door
eyes wide open, laid out on the floor
delicate lines erased
you’re still right
everything i created was only half made
a carefully regulated personal crusade
i always took you for granted i always wanted change
now all i want is your love
i was dreaming, we were here before
daylight creeping through our bedroom door
finding meaning in what i adore
shallow breathing underneath the floor
Track Name: Halogen Eye
weathered and worn
i feel my energy
slither down the back of my spine
a three headed swine
tangled in the evergreen
we wither and slowly entwine
i open my halogen eye
everything that’s worth anything
has got you by the neck
anything that’s worth everything
grips you by the neck
tethered and torn
you give me synergy
the visceral, the elegant kind
in purpose divine
taken by the urgency
we shiver and quickly entwine
will you remind me why you’re everything
Track Name: Slipping
you’re a place i cannot leave
a space i cannot see
a pitfall underneath
i’m slipping
you’re a poison in my teeth
a tongue i cannot speak
a pitfall underneath
i’m slipping

devil in your bed
i’m pulling punches instead
of getting even/ of just leaving
you’re loss i cannot grieve
a truth i disbelieve
a pitfall underneath
and I’m slipping
it’s a tangled web we weave
drunk on pleasantries
a pitfall underneath
and i’m slipping
Track Name: Locus
i woke up in the in between
and my head expands
muttering words of prophecy
from a fever dream you shared with me
i am right here, where i’ve always been
further up and further in
you always run like a criminal
when you need me
you were tongue tied and elegant
When you need me
love is careless, love is blind
love is envious. I’m envious
always thought it was hard to find
but i’m oblivious. oblivious
Track Name: Only Other
i’ve got nothing left
all this is fragmentary
seasons we forget
love isn’t arbitrary
i want your respect
if only temporary
standing at the edge
i’m gonna take you nowhere
i will make it right
i’m the only mother fucker in the room who seems to think i might
but we look at one another for an easy way out tonight
i guess i confess
to being solitary
i want nothing less
I’m gonna take you nowhere
I wanna make it all right
i wanna make it right
i’ll make it right
If you let me
let me
Track Name: Killing Spree
you’re an evening breeze
ripping through my leaves
like a killing spree, devouring
my sense of time
and its alright
you’re a perfect line
in a book unbound
you’re signs of life
in barren ground
you’re a neon sign
in a coal mine
place your head against me now
your tired lips, your open mouth
drink my madness if you want to drown
swallowed by fury and sound
take my name
it’s prearranged
i’ll ruin you, when i ruin me
take my name
i’m borrowing
from future you, for present me
take my name
stay the same
because of you in spite of me
take my name
love was made
for future you and future me
Track Name: Black Tide
i was swallowed in a black tide
living in a one way line
hadn’t even tried
you were right in the quiet of the storm
(i couldn’t wait)
in the violence that defines us

i was caught in a black tide
taken on a one way ride
yours were the hands that guide, me to realign
swallowed by a landslide
there’s nowhere to hide
i hadn’t even tried
caught in a landslide
a daydream paradise
when these worlds collide
we are purified
taken by a riptide, a wave of cyanide
you were right in the quiet of the storm
(i couldn’t wait)
in the violence that defines us
we’re reborn
in the violence we’re reborn
(in the quiet)
Track Name: What We've Lost
lately I guess i’m not my best
can’t help feeling
there’s something less
do you remember what we lost?
you take me in your evening power
in my lonely hour
when the fog rolls in
erasing what was only ours
after the beauty sours
when the walls close in
you’ll take me into your final hours
after the wilting flowers
when your thoughts close in
will you remember what we lost?
i will…
Track Name: Spill On The Carpet
i over reacted, it’s a spill on the carpet
i missed your intention by a terrible margin
in time, we’ll find,The fire
i wanted to break you down
i couldn’t lie, the error was mine
i’m feeling farther apart

i’ll be outside of your window tracing shapes along your spine
rest assured that i'm imperfectly resistant of your wiles
every person should be purposefully reverent of life
i am not entirely certain i can be held in denial
Track Name: Leave Me Out
breathe out, try harder now to breathe out
its pulling harder at your seams now
hearing everything you leave out
i’m trying to see how
i can make you believe i’ll
be the comfort you need without screaming
wring me out darling
wring me out if you need
i’m happy to be your of service
but leave me out if you see me obviously worse off
dream of another time when it was enough
made a mess i couldn’t clean up
feel you stirring in the sheets love
if i could take your cup, if it comes undone
i’m afraid that i’m all used up
leave me out
i just don’t know what to do
Track Name: You and I (Outro)
you and i, we’re not that much better
