    *Hold it in your hands! Hand it to your friends! Look at the pretty pictures! Read the itty, bitty lyric sheet! Ooooh and ahhhhh at the beauty!

    *This CD was professionally replicated. Kara and Rich glued the artwork to the digipak for a wonderfully colorful d.i.y. package. They used rubber cement so they could rub any excess glue into little booger balls. They personally folded the little liner notes into a tri-fold and stuck them into the digipak pocket. The liner notes have a gorgeous pic of the ravishing duo and song lyrics on the other side. The original artwork is by the crazy-talented Jesse Smith.

    *Due to the d.i.y. packaging of this CD, there will be some variation based on our gluing and folding skills.

    *We ship through USPS and send it First-Class or First-Class International.

    *Also includes immediate download of 15-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

    *We are 100% indie. Thinkroot Records is our label. Any $ you spend here goes directly to the band... and we'll use it to do more music projects.

I’ve got this look on my face
To construe that I care
And I guess I’m lying
To you and me both
But really- who cares?
And that’s the tough thing
It’s hard to stop
Telling the truth
Once you start
And you start to realize
How full of shit we all are

If you stop to think
If you stop to think
When you stop to think
When you stop to think

And you can make yourself sick
When you realize we don’t have a choice
Without changing the foundation of your life…

If you stop to think…

So you pick and you choose
When you abuse your morals
Your hopes, your heart
And you know as long as you’re living within
All you learned as a kid
You’ll always be stuck…

If you stop to think…


from Mourning Time, released March 31, 2011
