I could tolerate the silence if the people round me breathed
would you rather take the subway then stumble home with me?
I can feel it coming closer- the end of history
you will know me by the shaking, and by the company I keep

a small adjustment of the brain to make me happy
just one spike, another night of unchecked energy
and did you mean it at the time? a life without connections
we loose the tether from the dock and cast off to the deep

in the cold one-room apartment, another Dixie cup of gin
it’s not enough to make us warm, but it just might keep us in
I see your face, I sit and wait for fission to begin
and too late I postulate just what we’re swimming in

I saw the pulsing of the grid on the ground below us
for each spark another life, a thousand fantasies
for all the ones that failed to thrive, we keep on living
and stumbling, strive to stem the tide of vicious doubling

"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."
