about

'anyone lived in a pretty how town (with up so floating many bells down) spring summer autumn winter he sang his didn't he danced his did '
- e. e. cummings ('anyone lived in a pretty how town')


Produced by David Anderson and recorded throughout 2012, the release is the follow-up to 2010's acclaimed (our parents’ views count) Melodies and is the first to feature the full Reverieme Megazor/band.

To celebrate the release of With Up So Floating, the five-piece will host a launch party at Nice ‘n’ Sleazy's on April 21st. Entry is free of charge and, as always, there will be blood. I mean cake. (I mean both.)

Track Name: Build a Home
thinly veil your thoughts
keep me knowing just enough
mummified in them hide from
peripheral sights?

so the cracks will stay cracks
so the thread veins can't be sewn
and in this liminal space
we will build our home

we'll build a home
and grow for miles
and oh my god i never thought i could

thinly veil your thoughts
keep me knowing just enough
mummified in them hide from
peripheral sights?

bury them in the walls
keep us warm while we don't know
bury them in the grass
in the garden of our home

we'll build a home
and grow for miles
and oh my god i never thought i could
Track Name: Sorry or Something
times at mass:
i choked on the host
or at least i thought so
my mind's tricky
one of us will always look worse
so draw a line
i mean, please forgive
if i can't be perfect then just make me good
if i can't be perfect then just make me good
and if i can't be great then just make me ok

i knew i was wrong
when the bottle left my lips
felt the shame
that brought me to my knees
i broke your heart
but i'm trying to mend my ways
if you'll let me
i'll fight this world for you
i will box what's left of me then
and hide it in the ground
and if you need me

glock!

but what i mean to say
is that i'm stupid and odd
and not at all what i should be
and if i let you down then
i feel that i really ought to say
sorry
or something equally appropriate
sorry, or something slightly more eloquent
sorry, or something i won't bring up in arguments
in the future
like a wean

i knew i was wrong
when the bottle left my lips
felt the shame
that brought me to my knees
i broke your heart
but i'm trying to mend my ways
if you'll let me
i'll fight this world for you
i will box what's left of me then
and hide it in the ground
and if you need me
Track Name: Dark Matter
what a spec we are
what a mark on the carpet of time life is
what a silly race
what a silly race to want to win
what a spec we are
what a mark on the carpet of time life is
and we drag along
our corporeal forms
but we're hoping for something greater than this
are you hoping?

if the timeline of my life of so far
stretched from sea level to the stars
i'd die in dark matter

i formed from the stars
i grew in the water
i floated out
and i remember you
i remember
because you were there too
were we so frightened we fought like dogs?
were we so angry?

if the timeline of my life of so far
stretched from sea level to the stars
i'd die in dark matter
Track Name: Rain
the people who would be so proud
the shapes your thoughts make when you don't think
and peripheral sight brings them so close
and it hurts
but it's ok
it'sok
and it hurts
but it's ok
it'sok

they aren't insensitive swines but where's the line?
there's nothing i could say to heal you quicker
though the leaves scatter and rust they seem so bright
you may not have them but you had them
you had them

first it waits but when it hits
you lose the you before
but in time you will find
a you to bring you home

rain runs down the hill and hides in the ground
i hear the water but there's less than before
and when you look in her eyes it's dim but it's there
i won't stop you pretending
but i know you are

i won't stop you pretending
but i know you

first it waits but when it hits
you lose the you before
but in time you will find
a you to bring you home

and if there's nothing else to think
we're just beginners here
and if there's nothing else to say
no i don't know how you're feeling
i know it isn't really the same
but let's pretend snow is just rain in stasis
let's pretend that we're only waiting
let's pretend snow's just static rain
Track Name: Indigo
i heard a record playing colours of the disc
spectral in the light
red red red and orange in the corner
tattooing flowers on a white wall

the light it shone into the street
a driver crashed his car
a pilot crashed his plane
synthetic sun shining out of the window

my hair was green
my lips were blue
i was mistaken thinking my arms were violet
before they were indigo

meanwhile i was hiding from the infestation
i was never brave or stupid enough
to stay
and fight in the dark

and they were catching
eggs were hatching
and the colour of their wings
was the most beautiful thing i ever laid eyes on
but it wasn't enough

my hair was green
my lips were blue
i was mistaken thinking my arms were violet
before they were indigo
Track Name: Robot Song
could i plant a bone?
could i grow a body
that felt like my own
or at least like it knew me?

with eyelashes catching
and keeping the sight
i know that it's no more
than darkness and light

but if it could be plastic
steel or titanium
some kind of alloy
we'd last so long longer than

fossils and treetrunks
cockroaches i've seen them
outliving the species
our time is so fleeting

but if this were party
we'd stay till the next week
if this were a dream
you'd never see
my eyes open

oh my g g gears
holy engineer
hearts can meet minds
with a soldering iron

if you took the ones
and i took the ohs
would we speak would we talk
would our logic make noise?
if you took the ones
and i took the ohs
would we speak would we talk
would our logic make any noise?


and if this were party
we'd stay till the next week
if this were a dream
you'd never see
my eyes open
Track Name: Hey Everyone, I'm One of You
you're not looking ok
are you feeling all right?
have you just been scratching your face in the night?
is there something more?
an admission of guilt
i'm not saying it's yours but you know that

i will be there
i will help you
as far as my means stretch
further than my arms pull

but the words that i learned don't count
and i feel myself vanish
and the dirt doesn't know
so while i'm glad that i tried
i kind of wish i didn't

and i'm dreaming you're running down through the street
you're naked, or something, and i hear you scream
hey, everyone, i'm one of you!
hey, everyone, do you love me too?

because you make me so happy
my heart feels like bursting when i see you
it's all that i can do


but the words that i learned don't count
and i feel myself vanish
and the dirt doesn't know
so while i'm glad that i tried
i kind of wish i didn't

do we all add up to "i was there"
and "i did that"?
Track Name: Your Way
stones and rocks lying hard on your heart
but seconds would turn them to dust
feathers are kissing your knees
but do you remember back when they were birds?
they weren't like that for long
and you're sad you can't remember loving them now

you might have been scared
but you never were foolish
just patient the tables would turn
love wasn't there for straight thinkers
'cause if it was
that's what you'd be doing
instead you're telling yourself
"you did ok. your way"

frauds and lies are evils to kill
still
halfway'll get you up to the top of the hill
Track Name: Next Time
the days are shorter who stole the light?
i got so i angry but you wouldn't fight me
i promise next time it won't be like this

i could say i was split in two or that it wasn't really me
but isn't that just the coward's way of trying to say sorry?
i promise next time it won't be this

because you're so good to me
the sound i hear, the high
that brings me back to

though i know the words
i can't quite vocalise the thoughts
the soundless makings of
promises that next time i'll be good

who i am isn't what i feel
you dopamine so much to me
i promise next time it won't be like this

because you're so good to me
the sound i hear, the high
that brings me back to

though i know the words
i can't quite vocalise the thoughts
the soundless makings of
promises that next time i'll be good

so i can't be fixed
but i can be heard
and just cause someone loves you
it doesn't mean that you deserve it
Track Name: My Wandering Mind
no i've not been sleeping
but i can't see how that counts
who declares what's right?
and on what grounds,
if we're all headed down?

while i can't be sure
i can i can i can
convince myself

beat my heart
when i'm too tired
open my eyes
and stop the sleep
breathe my lungs
but burn the pyre
if you know for sure
i'm gone for good
cause if all my life
and all these bones
amount to nothing

morning's mine and night's
when thoughts ooze out and can't be caught
and in the dark my wandering mind
loses sight
can't make it home

and we agree there's no such thing as a soul

beat my heart
when i'm too tired
open my eyes
and stop the sleep
breathe my lungs
but burn the pyre
if you know for sure
i'm gone for good
Track Name: DearlyDearlyDearly
oh god oh god oh god
don't be coy
the baby makes the house shake
when the baby cries

and the life you weave
it will never die
it just wakes you up
in the middle of the night

so please
just open up your knees
the baby makes the house shake
when the baby weeps

her red light glows
and the grief fills up our lives
her red light glows
burns the tears out of your eyes

and the life you weave
it will never die
it just wakes you up
in the middle of the night
like a ghost made of sour milk and floorboards

and as we lie inside your room
where your body makes me sick
and your body makes me moan

i'll hang on the tree that grows out of your spine
the one that molds it stasis into our life's time
why do you move
and then yearn for the same?
why do you move,
and then yearn for again?

and the life you weave
it will never die
it just wakes you up
in the middle of the night
like a ghost made of sour milk and floorboards

i had 1, 2, 3, 4 letters for your memory
i had 5, 6, 7 but no dearlydearlydearly

and the life you weave
it will never die
it just wakes you up
in the middle of the night

and the life you weave
and the life
