Canslp goes illegally hard, good god. the range of this band is unbelievable. some of the tightest songs i have ever heard- both chaotic and intricate. this is my new benchmark for what 2020s music sounds like. early eyes has become the joker Favorite track: Revel Berry.

stupi002 Why do I love this album? Oh I dunno it's likely due to how talented and awesome Early Eyes is. These notes make life enjoyable.

Big Sigh 03:38
Waiting in the morning Are you boarding? Scared to finally see you It's been pouring I'll just check the time wait It's only just 9AM I’d hate If we were surprised when all the rain has you and your flight delayed Why’s this place Elegant today? Balcony and Marb Light Morning air and sunlight Letting out a big sigh ‘Cause everybody’s waking up at 9 Heard you’ve never been to Endless water Never seen the garden Kept your guard up It’s been hard to sleep here I feel incomplete without my fears It’s been so divine blending time crying covering up my tears Balcony and Marb Light Morning air and sunlight Letting out a big sigh ‘Cause everybody’s waking up at 9 Balcony and Marb Light Morning air and sunlight Letting out a big sigh ‘Cause everybody’s waking up at 9

Chemicals 03:02
Oh it’s been cold out I’ve been told that you’d be home Oh it's been about 18 weeks since we have phoned Trying to just keep my composure The punks always freaking me out I’m just here for some fucking closure I can't see you through the crowd You. You’re something You got me buzzing from head to toe We were something We had the chemicals Oh you look lovely And I thought I wouldn’t care Oh you look happy I keep walking down the stairs Trying to just keep my composure The punks always freaking me out I’m just here for some fucking closure I can't see you through the crowd I’ll just peace the fuck out I’ll just peace the fuck out Can’t seem to see through the crowd I’ll just peace the fuck out You. You’re something You got me buzzing from head to toe We were something We had the chemicals

Paresthesia 03:21
Waiting for the words to come Waiting for the words Waiting for the words to come To come and calm my nerves For once my lungs can breathe Still wish that I could see Through all this overhead lighting Paresthesia flows All over me as I am clothed In my best jeans, heart beats I know that it's already all fleeting Paresthesia flows All over me as i’m exposed And feeling dizzy, heartbeats I know I’ve been missing my Fluoxetine Wishing this could endlessly Wishing this could end I imbibed too generously Gazing at my hands For once my lungs can breathe Still wish that I could see Through all this overhead lighting Paresthesia flows All over me as I am clothed In my best jeans, heart beats I know that it's already all fleeting Paresthesia flows All over me as I’m exposed And feeling dizzy, heart beats I know I’m missing my Fluoxetine

Revel Berry 03:10
We have just learned how to listen and We have just been oh so dissonant, nothing fits Need to cope with non-existence and We have just heard to be persistent, given this Coffee rings the table Oh shit is this fatal Feeling quite unstable now Someone call me able Haven’t slept since April Someone help me cope right now Notice that it’s not fun (But it is fun) Everything is overdone (But we’re livin’) Overdone overdone (Within our vision) Empathy for feeling dumb Used to drive out to the ocean and We could barely keep our eyes open, felt like shit Used to take the world in broken and We could barely see what’s overhead, coming in None of this is making sense Lost in who what where and when Hoping for some confidence Coffee rings the table Oh shit is this fatal Feeling quite unstable now Someone call me able Haven’t slept since April Someone help me cope right now Notice that it’s not fun (But it is fun) Everything is overdone (But we’re livin’) Overdone overdone (Within our vision) Empathy for feeling dumb

Catch You 03:36
Hoping that I never wake up Summer soaked and sweat in the bed Baby Walking on the moon with my love Oxygen depleted you said Baby I want to sway In the sky ‘Til we fade When all that’s left are ripples on the pond I’ll be floating right here to catch you When all the things that we have loved are gone I’ll be falling right where you want to To catch you Gotta wake up go to my job Shit is really wearing me down Baby Did you dream of beaming me up Catch the stars and pull them all down Baby I wanna sway Pull down all the stars and float away I wanna fade Shut out all the light and dance away When all that’s left are ripples on the pond I’ll be floating right here to catch you When all the things that we have loved are gone I’ll be falling right where you want to I’ll be falling down where you want to I’ll be coming right away to catch you I’ll be floating right where you want to I’ll be coming right away to follow you To catch you

Rocket 02:58
I don’t know if I am capable If I’m telling the truth When you’re ready maybe let me know You’re my home I don’t think that it's a good idea to go there Fingers elegantly running soft through my hair Maybe not productive to sit in despair I’m aware I don’t think that I can go back home Everything is real now Doubt I could survive out on my own Together we can hold out Let’s just be honest I’m so scared I know things are difficult sometimes uncontrollable no matter how much we grow our brains are atypical and I love you I don’t think that it's a good idea to go there Fingers elegantly running soft through my hair Maybe not productive to sit in despair I’m aware I don’t think that I can go back home Everything is real now Doubt I could survive out on my own Together we can hold out Do you wanna set some plans in stone We can finally hang out Doubt I could survive out on my own Together we can hold out

Feeling what I want It’s just that you are gone its irreverent Dressing up just for the hell of it Trying to be somewhat relevant Peeling back the front, synthetic wigged out and blonde, not that eloquent I’m not addressing the elephant Sensing some spirits malevolent All the ghosts and the ghouls are just sporting their masks Harley Quinns and their sins are just smoking out back All the kid Elevens with their Hamm’s just off screen and it is Halloween 18! (x2) All the ghosts and the ghouls are just shaking their ass Harley Quinns and their sins are just smoking out back All the kids understand that we’re all on a team and it is Halloween 18!

Dying Plant 03:06
I’m feeling bad about the state of my existing tonight I’m feeling like I want to walk away to clean up my life I’m feeling bad about the state of my existing tonight I’m feeling like I want to run away and bathe in the light Sad sad sad sad sansevieria Drab drab drab drab dieffenbachia Bad bad bad bad bad begonia I’m thinking there could be a different way to sort this all out I’m thinking you and I patch it up and chill the fuck out I’m thinking there could be a different way to sort this all out Just take a look at me and try to stand and banish all doubt Sad sad sad sad sansevieria Drab drab drab drab dieffenbachia Bad bad bad bad bad begonia Water daily I’m feeling pretty dry My leaves are failing I’m looking to the sky Please won’t you save me I’m dying in this pot What’s mine is yours so I feel this way a lot

All that I could do From the moment I withdrew Was see through glossy eyes, supine watching time go by Supine watching time go by I’ve already gave you a list of all the little things that I would fix Only if things could be different Breathe in, we’re given somewhere overgrown Distant idyllic somewhere overgrown Somewhere Overgrown Somewhere Overgrown I’ve already gave you a list of all the little things that I would fix Only if things could be different Breathe in, we’re given somewhere overgrown Distant idyllic somewhere overgrown Somewhere Overgrown Somewhere Overgrown

Marathon 03:23
Feels like I am running Never am I running for me Yearning for my calling I am coping Sweater thin and ratty Never what I wanted to be Ruining my hobby Knees are shaking Don’t want to be the one We only need just enough Don’t want to get caught in abyssal colors on your phone Every day becomes so typical out here on our own Don’t want to make this so physical that’s just what they want Need to feel saccharine chemicals in my head for once We’re just running a marathon You’ve got to be so cavalier and cunning Emerald city glowing pristine Where every self is stunning Still worth nothing Don’t want to be the one We only need just enough Don’t want to get caught in abyssal colors on your phone Don’t want to make this so physical that’s just what they want Every day becomes so typical out here on our own Need to feel saccharine chemicals in my head for once Were just running a marathon

Trust Fall 04:32
Hard to be the lone warm hearted optimist Sinking down increasing pressure Forever falling backward Suddenly shoes untying And I see Everything I ever wanted Still I’m falling backward Blue, deep blue Something is pulling me Trusting that you will catch me Waiting wishing wanting watching longing for something I can see through And unpack at therapy I’m resigned to sinking in the deep blue Don’t waste my time I’m finished falling backward Down I go falling toward you Confident Turns out falling backwards isn’t So bad with conviction Blue I trust you Something is pulling me Trusting that you will catch me Waiting wishing wanting watching longing for something I can see through And unpack at therapy I’m resigned to sinking in the deep blue (We can finally hang out) (We had the Chemicals) (I’ll be coming right away to catch you) (Somewhere overgrown) (I’ll be coming right away to follow you) I love you
