Ryan Calhoun I bought this album in 2005 after hearing lighthouses. What do you say about the best and most underrated band on the scene. Raw, energetic, beautiful, heartfelt, real are just a few words to describe what these guys do. The dream of new music from this band has faded, but this album should be in everyone's collection. Purchase this and support them, and you too will know what it is like to be throat punched, knocked down, helped to your feet and dusted off. I will not set a favorite track. Start from the beginning, play it all the way to the end, emerge as a new person, repeat if necessary.

Track Name: The Physical Setting of a Dream
shhh
Track Name: William Shatner's Powergun
Now you can feel free to hate me for this. Your type of beauty is born to fade: one of lust and of shame. My empathy has breeded my contempt but this pain will be lived through with all my temperance. For this revelation and the fall to match it: what's left is consequence. I accept no truth; only outlook, so I restore my faith in nothing. But the beat of my heart and the beat of our hearts, and the blood on my hands from reaching. You gave it away with your eyes. You've been fucking yourself with your own cold hands again. You gave it away with your eyes. Don't you ever reach out for my hands again. I can never be safe from myself. If it sounds bitter it's because it is. I will live forever alone with this. If I sound bitter it's because I am, but make no mistake I'm screaming love through the hate. I will love through the hate.
Track Name: Paper Airplanes
Where do we go from failure? There's no way but up from here. Your morals can't help me now. This time there's no room for dissonance. Why do we ask what we already know? Just to hear when something is real. But what if things change, when and why? Who first? Who's left behind? I'ts nice to know when something is real. Ask: Where do we go from failure? There's nowhere but up from here. This time there's no room for dissonance. You are only worth what your heart is willing, so tell me are you willing? This lesson's learned: to have retrospect, and "c'est la vie", I can't accept. It's safe to say your valor was more of a pose. It is safe to say that if it was said, than it was meant to be said. But what if things change? When and why? Who goes first? Who's left behind? "C'est la vie" won't change a thing.
Track Name: Shaolin Casanova
me when you lose your nerve. So what'd you go looking for and why? How long did it take you before you stopped? But don't worry. It suits you just fine. After all this time you would think your taste would lift from my lips and I'd forget your eyes were out for gold and all the rest. But I can't forgive because I can't forget the weight I carry in my chest. I'm far too far from giving up. I swear. I swear. My wishes remain the same, a wish for steady hands & hands to hold. Hands to hold, and to be held. But what's left to heal? What's left of me? You'll get what you deserve. and when the time is right, you'll see it's funny how little it takes for you to become everything you say you hate. But don't worry. It suits you just fine. When you're out of sight, you'll be out of mind (just like you showed me.) I'll never admit how hard I fell. (so close but not this time.) And after all this time, what can you say for yourself? You fell so far, and for what? (I'll never be this sick again. don't you know this is tearing me apart?) You took more than time. You know damn well I wasn't ready for this.
Track Name: Any Port in the Storm
i said, shhh
Track Name: Lighthouses
The ties that bind can gag and I'm bound by bounbless insignificance. Set yourself on fire if you can't feel this burn. Did you run out of ink so soon? Let my roots be my guide and my heart as my eyes. This light will lead you home. There's not enough apathy in my soul: my heart refuses to grow cold. Just remember: you could fake this feeling forever. Nothing is sacred where hearts aren't beating. (Where is your spine?) If my dreams must die, let them die in me for the sake of understanding what I could not see. For what I'll never say and what I'll never be: this was never for you, it was always for me. You'll never see we're just flesh after all.
Track Name: Running Man
I've built walls around me. I've surrounded myself with everything that's gotten me here. But I'm tired of apologizing and I'm tired of running from the things that I can't hide from. And it's hard to believe in yourself, and it's hard to believe anything but I've learned forgiveness and I've learned sincerity. Burn a bridge or be left behind. Spread your wings and be proud of who you are. You choose what you carry with you, and I've burned bigger bridges than you. I'm not afraid to let go this time. It's hard to believe good intentions, but I'm not afraid. I'm looking for something I don't know how to ask for. Spread your wings and be proud of who you are. You choose what you carry with you, and I've burned bigger bridges than you. I've built walls around me. I've moved on from everything that's gotten me here. The end will justify the means, so I've left you behind because I know you've been waiting for the right chance to stick this knife in my back. This chance is mine. I've left you behind. This is the last time you will make me painfully aware of how humiliated these open arms I've held for you have made me.
Track Name: Pins and Needles
Picture a parade of mannequins: Ivory white. Straight black ties to harden crooked spines. Single file. Holes for eyes as useless as 2000 years of evolution: We have no ears and we have no eyes to see what's in front of us: a new plateau of cost-efficient living. There's no funding for free will and we're not budging. But no one cares, and no one listens. Plastered between 9 and 5 there is a pulse that ticks in time: it's neutral and it's centralized. We found it safer inside the lines. But no one cares, and no one listens.
Track Name: Good to the Last Drop
You made a list today of all the things I could never be and you said "try living with this, it's all yours". Please don't make this harder than it already has to be. Let's just turn our backs on ourselves and the things that we've made. And no, I've never seen myself like this before and maybe it scares me too. To know that different things take different times to fall apart, but they always do. (They always do.) I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't miss you. I know why I left and why I'm never coming back. Please don't make this harder than it already has to be. Let's just turn our backs on ourselves and the things that we've made. And no, I've never seen myself like this before and maybe it scares me too- to know us. To know me. To know this is where we say goodbye. This is the part where we say goodbye.
Track Name: Two Bullets and a Gun
I guess I never told you, I was never one to go backwards, and your words are just words. I'm afraid to die in Staten Island, I can't lie to you. But I'll never say I'm sorry for knowing when I've been true. Say it like you mean it so I can forget that love isn't alive here and buried in my chest. Say it like you mean it, but don't do it for me. Forget this sense of urgency so I can sleep. It's just a matter of time, so don't hold on. I guess I never told you just how much I can do with my hands tied behind my back: just enough to hold my tongue long enough to know it hurts. And you said, "you said it yourself- 'i wouldn't miss me either'", So I don't feel a thing when I tell you it's over. It's over.
