Quiet Party 02:58
QUIET PARTY Dream of an earth-sized party, but you don’t know what I have in store All of these raging hours spent on a suit with matching tie Ours is a quiet party It’s useless wine-filled fun when we’re together All free fall, falling leaves oncoming Begging treetops, calling, ever wanting All away while growing leaves you wanting Finally somebody heard our calling Ours is a quiet party, it’s useless wine-filled fun when we’re together

ALWAYS ROOM FOR ANOTHER Dead weight, your love rot. One lady up, and two we fall You’re late, you’re welcome, it’s chasing faces til we drop. Always room for another, Always, Always Always room for another, Always, Always Chorus: You know what to say to me now You know what to say to me and all of us waiting You know what to say to me now You know what to say You know what to say You’re late, you’re welcome(many times) Always room for another, Always, Always Always room for another, Always, Always(4x)

CAPTAIN MAUDLIN V1: Johnny Maudlin was right all along when he said You’ve been changing your skin and it’s showing again Kick off your shoes, this is normal time, kick off your shoes Kick off your shoes, this is normal time V2: Captain Maudlin was right all along when he wept Drew original sin on my forehead again Kick off your shoes, this is normal time, kick off your shoes Kick off your shoes, this is normal time. And the waitress seems glad for a moment now As the angels sing to the angry scene All the waitresses bow for a moment now To the angry scene, while the angels sing

ISLAND NATION V1: You’re an island nation, slowly sinking, but you’re a bright one, yes you’re a bright one. I believed in you so, more than any, cause you’re a bright one. Yes you’re a bright one, anyway. You’re an island and it’s worth repeating, that you’re a bright one. Yes you’re a bright one. Funny how fast the water’s rising. And you’re a bright one. Yes you’re a bright one anyway. And I know, I know it’s lonely even now. And I know, I know it’s lonely even now. Ooooo’s and ahhh’s(2x) I shut down. I walked out. (4x)

Sea Change 03:16
SEA CHANGE V1: This life support breathes in funny, so take all the time you think you need The doctor is in this morning, staving off Paul’s eternal sleep V2: Condolences follow quickly, making a home for awkward things Flowers repeat I’m sorry, daisies in white pass me a drink Chorus: Seas change and the living room fights for us Teetering off the edge of the pool deck stain, I guess I could stay V3: Well it’s out with the old man, darling. Your only begotten stares at me Staring up like his daddy, tuned into blankets quietly Chorus: Seas change and the living room fights for us Eventually all our efforts are proved in vain, I guess we could stay Got a ticket to fall apart. Got a ticket to make this strange. Got a ticket to fall apart. Here’s a chance to make this strange.

Solo 01:21
SOLO Made up of the wars you fought solo And all of the coffee shops you loved And you proudly announce yourself Soft grin when you’re full of stealth Head up, you’ll amaze them all solo Here’s hoping you last ten days solo Try not to be sad when you’re solo

Chambers 03:35
CHAMBERS V1: She woke up over years of being told to watch her mouth And she rode over necks and backs too proud to life her up She packs up her crates without you know Years ago we were wrapped in blankets kept in chambers Fever stole all our best laid plans and wrong intentionals Sitting, covering our ears and eyes we knew And I’m on the way somehow to know you And I’m on the way somehow to know you And she rode over necks and backs too proud to life her up

Smoke 03:57
SMOKE V1: We run a race to find out if we’ll all die out In any case you can’t help rare eagles fly now Chorus: You know what’s in my mind You know what’s in my mind We run a race to find out, fuck the prince and shout loud There’s smoke in your clothes, and change in your bed, and I’m wide awake now Chorus: You know what’s in my mind You know what’s in my mind You know what’s in my mind You know what’s in my mind Chorus(2x) Take your undying love for cheap wine and unforgetful ways Open thrills for the next few play dates where you breathe loudly my name Take your undying love for cheap wine and unforgetful ways Open thrills for the next few play dates where tensions quietly release Take your undying love for cheap wine and unforgetful ways Open thrills for the next few play dates where you breathe loudly my name

Glass 04:18
GLASS Hold me now, they’ve all been gone for hours now I can’t believe this empty house You’ve been quiet all day Hold me now, the sun’s been up for hours now It’s not like you to be this loud And we are holding meetings Underground, we’ll never hear them underground We’ll breathe together safely now We are lightly walking You’ve been quiet all day Brother told me, I wasted too much time avoiding lights I still prefer the natural kind And we are lightly walking over concrete If they open up the door, we’ll hope that we’re both sleeping There’s water on the floor, and glass that will need sweeping(2x)

GREAT BIG WORLD Yusef played one, he took over young minds once a week And all the while the legs counldn’t stand You were the sane one, You wondered how every thought could leave And words were ghosts and needs second hand But it’s not your fault Cause in a way your words aren’t lost But you still forgot There’s a great big world for us Wolf Man made it, his breathing could make the coldest weep And anxious shakes became wooden stares And I can’t believe it, the couches are still out on the street And every hour helps us prepare For the lousy fun It’s ok, it’s no one’s fault But you still forgot There’s a great big world for us

about

Easter Island Athens, Georgia

Formed by brothers Ethan and Asher Payne in 2010, Easter Island creates panoramic, post-rock inspired dream pop. Behind the wall of towering drums, glassy guitars, and the forceful tide of synthesizers, hide soft-spoken melodies, tender harmonies, and understated musings on the subtle, yet visceral moments in life. ... more
