lyrics

a plague of perfumed things
all the niceties that monies bring
"ours” turns to “yours”, you sleeping within
my hair hanging greasy and glittered again
you said I'd always been the reckless one
someone else might call it fearless
out of the window into the yellow sun

living in the park beneath the lightning-blackened Cyprus trees
the motors in the distance like the ocean breaking on the sand
drinking from the stinking water basin, if you push you will
get pulled apart by the machine, the heavy consequence of gravity

I can’t forget that no one new is warm these days
a harem populated by memories
drawn to distraction and self-satisfaction
how bout all this talking in code?
how bout I just say that I want you?
they said that they knew you
but I see right through you

about

Landlord's Daughter Seattle, Washington

"The violin and guitar work on the album are impeccable..."
"The Passengers isn't a rock musical, per se, but the album certainly strikes that chord. In the vein of the Decemberists' The Hazards Of Love (though a little less gruesome), Landlord's Daughter are melodious, theatrical storytellers."

—Line Out, The Stranger
