about

Markarians Houserville, Pennsylvania

Imagine an alien species of explorers from a galaxy some 70 million light years distant. Countless generations have lived and died on the journey to Earth. Whole histories, micro-civilizations come and gone. But at last they are here. Markarians are here. Only…somewhere along the way, rounding the Sombrero Galaxy, they forgot why they came. And how to get back.

-Felix Singer, Athens, GA

Track Name: Big Time Kimono
All along we knew that…
Never meant to last
All along we knew that this would
unravel in a flash

If I make a miserable sound
Would you kick me around?
If I took an innocent fall
Would you kick me at all?

Last chance to have this…
Let it blow right past
Last chance to have this, honey
Untie my favorite sash

Whip it through the wind
It could carry you in
Your unfortunate face
I better watch what I say
Track Name: Corner Canyon (No Way Out)
Keep that light on while you wait
That night in Corner Canyon I could not recreate
without a pump and a needle
Oh, oh, a paper and chain

Hate when he gets all gentle, gets all shy
The rotten golden apple of his dead father’s eye,
who made a wicked decision
It’s not a heart until it breaks

So I bide my time, but..
little trouble gets so much bigger now there’s NO WAY OUT
I hustled into that murky deep
and pulled Andre right out by his diamond cleats
You’re silent and it shows!
The modern you
Make it straight and narrow
That’s love
There, it blinds
I’m sleepwalking the chase, next time I’ll try

Your hands in mine
But now it just don’t feel right

Where do I go when I’m asleep?
He’ll hold me by my skull and take some shine off the street
I wandered lost in a field
Threw up in ancient L.A.

So I bide my time, but..
little trouble gets so much bigger now there’s NO WAY OUT
I hustled into that murky deep
and pulled Andre right out by his diamond cleats
You’re silent and it shows!
The modern you
Make it straight and narrow
That’s love
There, it blinds
I’m sleepwalking the chase, next time I’ll try

Your hands in mine
Our love’s the twisted, twisted kind

Just twenty seconds ago, we saw some blue in the northern sky
It’s nothing that we don’t know, you’re hard-crushing my alibi
Just twenty seconds ago, we saw some blue in the northern sky
Track Name: Videos Follow
Meant to leave our memories incomplete
Doomed to find our victories in defeat
But we say no, no, no, no, no, no.

Another summer I take that car way before I’m ready
Baby I’ll take you home then I’ll just keep calling

Born to bend our headlights ‘round that road
Name the places that we used to go
But I say no, no, no, no I won’t

Another summer I take that car way before I’m ready
Maybe I’ll make things up so we both sound crazy
Track Name: Into the Fire
Tell me it’s over
then let me go
Eyes of an empire
Lids all gold

Tell me I’ve lost out
then let me in
Drive through The West End
Give me love, give me all of it

Oh come with me into the fire
Stay hopelessly there by my side

Tell me I’m lazy
Well, you’re lazy, too
Trace every tanline,
the modest few

Tell me I’m no one
then love me still
Stoned in the white sun
Give me doves, give me dinner pills

Into the fire
Come with me into the fire
Come with me into the fire
Come with me into the fire
However long that it takes
Track Name: Glisten & Curl
At nights I’m in trouble, I’m in trouble with my Kate
Let’s trade in reckless abandon
Let’s use our mistakes
Reach across
Oh what angles!
Shut the basin
Watch your curls!
Calming Waters on cable
It’s high art from another world

Just take me somewhere tonight

But oooooh when tonight is ours
Seventeen, you’re there with a broken heart
Ooh when tonight is ours

And ooh when tonight is ours
Seventeen, you’re there with a broken heart
Ooh when tonight is ours

Banished, babe
Not precocious
I was bored when I was made
Showered coins from a fountain
Let’s rococo this place
Yellow Sea
Not ferocious
Not ferocious
I have learned
who double crosses my girls..
Yeah, it’s love by another word

But oooooh when tonight is ours
Seventeen, you’re there with a broken heart
Ooh when tonight is ours

And ooh when tonight is ours
Seventeen, you’re there with a broken heart
Ooh when tonight is ours
