  • 'Buy Disc' Show Me Where the Edge Is


words and music by Kristen Cothron|
produced by Ben Strano as 'The Sonic Fedora'


Close your eyes, collect yourself
Gather your thoughts and then keep them to yourself

Now clear your mind, let your love be blind
You’ve got it all and everything will be fine

So just be happy it’s the be all end all
So content, now you can see it all feel it all
I can’t see anything further than this
I can’t see anything further than this

These little things unravel me
They tangle and blur the lines between

A conversation in obligation
To isolate a final realization


Anticipation bends to hesitation
That’s a trouble that comes with too great an expectation

Now open your eyes and take in the damage
Try to get over it if you can manage
