Gender Nihilist This album is so beautiful it was hard picking a fave, there isn't a weak link in sight. After this most recent listen I think "Down By the Lake" and "Let It Go" are really the stand-out tracks for me though. I'm sure I'll change my mind as I listen again...and again...and again...truly in love with this album. Favorite track: Down By the Lake.

Ill Crop The soundtrack to staring at the typewriter, letting a cigarette go to ash in your mouth, your mind awash in a multisyballic vocabulary to describe the simple pleasures of the waking world. Favorite track: Bird Song.

Track Name: Bird Song
Bird, why do you sing?
Fate has clipped your wings.
Bird, why do you sing?
Fate has clipped your wings.

You make me feel like a bird in the sky
Fly ‘round and ‘round and I can’t fall down
You make me feel, make me feel so free
Like I just came awake, not afraid to be
Track Name: Let It Go
When the smoke clears, when the dust settles
Where do you go? Who do you know?
When the damage is done, and it blots out the sun
To whom do you run, to whom do run?

Let yourself let it go
The urge to have, the need to know
Stay awake through the flow
And let yourself let it go

You carry these wounds deep in your chest
Too hard to release and lay them to rest
When the bitterness creeps in, how do you keep it
Under control, from robbing your soul?

Let yourself let it go
The urge to have, the need to know
Stay awake through the flow
And let yourself let it go
