This album exists for no other reason than that we wanted to write an album. Obviously we know it has poor production quality, less than $50 went into the recording process and we did it all ourselves. We like the songs that we wrote, some of them will me re-recorded for a future release we’re already planning which will be professionally recorded, mixed, and mastered. This was just to see what we could do after not being a band for years, and to see what kind of direction we wanted to take or how seriously we wanted to take this project, we virtually didn’t even do any promo for it. We’re proud of these songs, we’re having a ton of fun playing shows again. I think what we learned from this is that we will be taking this project seriously (or as seriously as a band named Pity Sweater can be taken) and we’re going to do some really cool shit. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us, there’s a lot more to come.

Track Name: The Day Before Your Birthday
just hit me up on your way back home
is what i should've said
instead i left you all alone with your hurricane head

i thought i saw your face today
i thought you were there
and for a moment my guilt and grief disappeared

don't float away
i mis you

i hope the reaper's angry
because you wouldn't let him take me
how did you not pull through if i always do
and i still picture you in the basement
in the backyard on that bench swing
on the porch where you watched us smoke cigarettes
and the day that we killed your dreams

make some room
give him space
help him see another day

it's getting harder
to picture you there
i hope you're somewhere warm
where you can bloom
Track Name: Meanwhile
I’m not conscious of the trouble I cause
There’s a reason I left when I did
I don’t need to make new friends
I don’t need to keep old friends
I don’t need anything

The summer I moved back home
I slept for weeks
last year took too much out of me
And you, you knew it all too well
So why wouldn’t you help me

So do your hands still shake?
And are you still afraid
That you made an unforgivable mistake?

There’s marks on the walls that were painted over
I know they’re still there
It just looks a little less lived in than it did

I can’t change anything that’s
Not my doing
Why should I even care
I know I’d still be haunted if we’d have stayed there

Don’t tell me what I want to hear
A dollar says I’d prove it wrong anyway
You sure can’t lie on your feet
Like me

And I guess now I’m free
But like a dog who broke his leash heading straight for the street
Still greeting people only I can see

Make me out to be
A martyr and what you need
Either way I’m ending up bloody
And alone
Don’t let me go alone

Who do you think you are to decide
If these shadows we walk with are really alive
And if they are, are they a part of us?
The pieces we try and hide

Came back from the dead just to live a lie
