LYRICS: Wait a minute here don't go drifting off on me Lets just make it clear Till the end of all we know is here Don't leave Just breathe With me 'Till the end of all we love is here Don't wait For me To breathe Don't wait Now all I can see It's just you and me 'Till, we somehow find relief Now all I can see It's just you and me just you and me just you and me 'Till, we somehow find relief When the coast is clear You can go about your way But not while I am here 'Cause the start of all we know is near Don't leave Just breathe With Me Now all I can see It's just you and me 'Till we somehow find relief Now all I can see It's just you and me just you and me just you and me 'Till, we somehow find relief ooooooo... Now all I can see It's just you and me 'Till, we somehow find relief Now all I can see It's just you and me just you and me just you and me 'Till, we somehow find relief Relief

LYRICS: Compromise is not an option here Temptation is no excuse Sitting there with your hands folded Well what’s use? Just turn away and have no shame You tame me with a glance Kill me just the same Piece by piece You threw it all away All that kept us sane but I did the same Shift the blame Then “Why” was the last Civil thing you said to me Well why should I answer You made a mess Of Me Subtlety is underrated Confidence is no excuse Please just stop explaining Cause what’s the use? Just turn away and have no shame You tame me with a glance Kill me just the same Piece by piece I threw it all away All that kept us sane but you did the same Shift the blame Then “Why” was the last Civil thing you said to me Well why should I Listen You’ve made a mess Either way we make no sense We just ignore the facts

LYRICS: Is this just the way that you want it to be - for me Is this just the way that you think you should feel do you even see it is this just the thing is this just the thing you need is this just it pull your weight you're such a waste don't hesitate to show your face to me to me to me Am I just a faint memory you can leave to be is this just a game that we're forfeiting do you even see it is this just the thing Is this just he thing you need to breathe pull your weight you're such a waste don't hesitate to show your face show your face Don't show your face to me So this is all you gave Along the way But "not so much the Muse," you say Just the one you made So I'll resign before you can forget the life you'll leave behind that's mine So this is where we stayed Along the way With not so much the love you claimed just the one we made So I'll resign before you can forget the life you'll leave behind that's mine

Slow Motion 05:35
LYRICS: Silence me go ahead see right through me It’s what you don’t do that kills me Still I try Can’t you see the way you love to torture me Its what you don’t say that’s agony Why do I try What a thrill pining for you How it kills knowing you never will So run & hide no one’s looking Every glance pierces through me Every sigh you give Makes it all go around again in slow motion Pity me go ahead do anything It’s what I won’t try that’s breaking me All in time Sympathy I need this more than anything Feels like I’m unraveling It’s all a lie What a thrill pining for you How it kills knowing we never will So run & hide no one’s looking Every glance pierces through me Every sigh you give Makes it all go around again in slow motion So far I’m far gone I can’t separate the Meanings So far I’m caught up in it So run & hide no one’s looking Every glance pierces through me Every sigh you give Makes it all go around again in slow motion

Tasteless 06:31
LYRICS: So amazed why do we do these things Anyway, you’re such a bore For the love I’d wait it out But the best has come and gone You smile so sincere But it’s just not necessary Let’s assume the worst Act it out, get off already Already! I just can’t wait another minute to fail Let’s go ahead and fake it You’ll see when it’s through just try to pry your mind from this You’re such a bore What a crime wish I was wandering Any way you still a bore Its suicide of the senses But you give me no choice My nails ache from biting But I'm still Poised and planning To just assume the worst Act it out, get off already Already! I just can’t wait another minute to fail Let’s go ahead and fake it You’ll see when it’s through just try to pry your mind from this You’re such a bore I don’t mind Give me hell and turn away Just rewind call it a sacrifice for nothing You smile so sincere But it’s just not necessary You’re so ordinary

Getting By 05:06
LYRICS: Still can't bare the silence Calling out with no response May have been some time but I can still lie I'm doing fine just fine This time, I'm fine Still can't pause the madness moving on then falling back May have been my time but I can't deny I'm doing fine Just fine I'll cry On my time So this was meant to be So I was meant to Lose it when Everything I was we were together So Long Now What Still wondering why Just getting by But when you see me again I won't hesitate to Lie I'm Fine I'm fine So this was meant to be So I was meant to Lose it when Everything I was we were together So Long Now What I'm still wasting time Alone this time and When they come Again I know they'll try to pry I'll Lie I'll cry On my time I'm fine

about

“On their debut EP “Close Down the Woods,” Robotanists root around in the electro-noir explored by Mazzy Star and Portishead, with Ellquist’s sultry voice narrating the way through forays into the dark both metaphorical and literal. Their penchant for the atmospheric never becomes an overbearing aesthetic, though — you can take the title of one of their songs, “Subtlety Is Underrated,” seriously.”
~ Kevin Bronson, Buzz Bands (USA)
