Fits just right, nice and tight This second skin of seething sin Moves in me so languidly To flush my cheek; it’s sanguine, sleek I’ve been watching, waiting, feeling Every single beat Speaking into velvet shadows Deep inside of me But when he speaks, he’s breaking peace What he needs, it isn’t me Spare me all of your excuses, Piety, pretenses, there’s no room in my bed I won’t play your Delilah Excuse you from desire to shame me in your stead Moving slow, this afterglow How it feels, he’ll never know I live for me, unfettered, free Won’t let him in beneath my skin I’ve been watching, waiting, feeling Every single beat Speaking into velvet shadows Deep inside of me But when he speaks, he’s breaking peace What he needs, it is not me Spare me all of your excuses, Piety, pretenses, there’s no room in my bed I won’t play your Delilah Excuse you from desire to shame me in your stead And when I go, Can’t share the pain, he’s left in shame But I know there’s No pain Spare me all of your excuses, Piety, pretenses, there’s no room in my bed I won’t play your Delilah Excuse you from desire to shame me in your stead I come in with no pretenses Lower my defenses, here beside my bed I won’t play your Delilah I know my own desire, no fire’s in my head

I'd made my peace With the rose that clouds my fading memory So I could turn away Pretend I never knew the shape of yesterday Now I've grown Blind to my own pain, but I can feel again I must Rewrite history, whitewash everything Now every dream Is beautiful agony Between these yellowed walls Paper curling in the shadows growing long So I start sifting through And every scrap's a finger pointed back at you I've grown Blind to my own pain, but I can feel again I must Rewrite history, whitewash everything Now every dream Is beautiful agony Yes, every dream Is beautiful agony I'm scarred on the surface But happy in denial (The memory is sweeter the farther away) Don't follow me back there I speak through switchblade smile (The dream has grown bitter, it darkens the day) Every dream Beautiful agony Yes, every dream Is beautiful agony I'm scarred on the surface But happy in denial (The memory is sweeter the farther away) Don't follow me back there I speak through switchblade smile (The dream has grown bitter, it darkens the day) I'm sorry I can't save you You know I cannot stay Forgive me my treason My memory has betrayed

She left a vacancy; dark where there should have been light I felt the distance, a dullness where once we were bright A phantom limb, absence not fading with time Still it echoes, these things which were hers and were mine Burn to fill the spaces growing between Not in presence, but maybe there’s closeness in dream Come from shadow to find my way by your light The same I offer to you, ’cause we’re like Twin stars, miles apart Joined at the hip and the gut and the heart She shines so bright in the night sky Despite our light years, you’re still my Gemini Caught the flash of a distant star Darkened now when we’ve come too far It’s clear to see the path we run Only when two brilliantly shine as one Last chance, gotta break and find a way To be free of the shadows where they lay Come between two spirits born to be Together, we Are irrevocably… Not long till we find each other, now That hope keeping me from breaking down Reunite, ’cause we are meant to be Together, we Are irrevocably Twin stars, miles apart Joined at the hip and the gut and the heart She shines so bright in the night sky Despite our light years, you’re still my Gemini Caught the flash of a distant star Darkened now when we’ve come too far It’s clear to see the path we run Only when two brilliantly shine as one

I bore the rising tide of fate Agreed to bide the time in chains But now these expectations weigh And I can’t fight This need, it builds, it breaks, it pulls away the equilibrium I bleed, I feel, I need, I see, I take the last steps to oblivion Oh, I feel the dam is breaking down Oh, my head below the waters now Just one breath to fill my lungs And purge myself of influence This water, black and thick as blood It fills me up This need, it builds, it breaks, it pulls away the equilibrium I bleed, I feel, I need, I see, I take the last steps to oblivion Oh, I feel the tide is rising now Oh, I give myself away and drown When I’ve Run out my line I find Nothing waiting for me So I Drift idly by And know It’s breaking Leave the floodgates open I want you to see When the waters have closed over me Oh, my feet have touched the bottom now Oh, but still I feel I’m sinking down Sinking down… waning now… sinking…

Be as right as you like As alone as you must The world becomes so hollow Save your appeal for my heart I’m shutting you out Your soul’s become too fallow So sure you know You close your mind And with your silver pool Reflections echo you I felt you slip away ‘Til echoes swallowed you When I departed your shores I didn’t look back I knew you would not follow Cold at the end of the world But you will not feel The emptiness surround you So sure you know You close your mind And with your silver pools Reflections echo you I felt you slip away ‘Til echoes swallowed you (spoken) Though I’ve carried you in darkness Followed you in light I can’t stand the weight of your self-righteousness That burden is yours to bear now When you call my name, don’t wait for me to Follow, I won’t follow And with your silver pool Reflections echo you I felt you slip away ‘Til echoes swallowed you

about

Since Antarctica's 5-track debut EP, released in 2012, blending layered arrangements, thick vocal harmonies, and interesting rhythmic turns. Aggressive but polished, loud but thoughtful.

"Female-fronted groups often fall into the folksy singer-songwriter category, but quartet Since Antarctica is nowhere near that reserved." - Catherine P. Lewis, Washington Post

"Analog power excelling in the digital age." - Marcus Dowling, On Tap Magazine
