Melvin Hawkins "It's like they stepped out of a time machine," said my Art instructor upon me showing him Fragile Tom. This band has as authentic of an 80's sound as you will find today. So much so, that indeed they could have stepped out of a time machine from the 1980's. The New Wave/Synth Pop sound doesn't get any better than this band without having actually been a band of that era. I put Bleak November Sun as my favorite track, but in all actuality it's a tie between Elbows, Naked Bone, and that. Favorite track: Bleak November Sun.

Track Name: The Tone
Oh
These limbs would not suffice
If we were running
From the settlements for our lives
It does not seem right
Waving your farewell to the skies
A few hundred gods
Beneath the one in disguise
While there is still light

If you ever shed that mask
Then I could see
Behind those eyes of yours
And come to realize
Whatever sets the tone

These limbs do not suffice
Patroling up and down the borderline
All our life
Never rest
Never sit tight

But if you ever shed that mask
Then I could see
Behind those eyes of yours
Come to realize
Should you ever shed that mask
Then I could see
Behind those eyes of yours
Come to realize
Whatever sets the tone
Whoever set the tone...
Track Name: Elbows
Feels like going to the core
And it's hurting
If you feel lighter than before
Then you're deserting
See how the distance grows
I am not the one who knows

When the gates got shut
Folded planes fly from your windows
Caught by an afterthought
Someone outside is sharpening some elbows

It feels like going to the core
Disconcerting
If you are calmer than before
Then you're deserting
See how the distance grows
I am not the one who knows

Why the gates got shut
Folded planes still fly from your windows
Caught by an afterthought
Someone outside is sharpening some elbows

We set out to return
Hearts overboard!
We set out to return...

Then the gates got shut
Folded planes still fly from your windows
Caught by an afterthought
Someone outside is sharpening some elbows
And then the gates got shut
Folded planes still fly from your windows
Caught by an afterthought
Someone outside is sharpening some elbows.
Track Name: Removed From Fiction
Into the pale light they go
To where the old day is taking its toll
Far from the riptide they stumble and fall

Through a black yonder they'll go
Just until it feels like it's once and for all
Removed from fiction
To be one with your cold heart

This is all I've ever known
Since you've been the one that I wanted to know

This is once and for all
Now this is once and for all

This is all I've ever known
Since you've been the one that I wanted to know
This is all I've ever known
Since you've been the one I really wanted to know

Now this is once and for all.
Track Name: Together In Here
It's not as easy as it may seem
To be a curse in someone's dream
To be your ghost, so undisguised
Oh no!

It's not as easy as it may seem
The paths are winding so surreal
We walk with opaque memories
And can't let go

We got laid down near the lighthouse
Where all the birds sang
And the weed grew tall
No more footsteps through your cities
Well... yes, we can be together in here

We are naked on the screen
While stuck somewhere in a scene
The earth will never percieve it's real

We got laid down near the lighthouse
Where all the birds sang
And the weed grew tall
No more footsteps through your cities
Well... yes, we can be together in here

Cosmic coma, empty landscapes
The sea rising high, walls are falling, too
View's amazing, we draw the cameras
Beyond the market, together in here.
Track Name: The Particular Go
Most endings loom
All blossom fades
We burn so low
Can't you see the shades?
Don't elucidate
That I need to grow
Burning so
Burning so low

I do not trust my eyes
Still I feel the punch
We burn so low
Can't you see the shades?
Don't hallucinate
I don't need to know
Burning so
Burning so low

In the aftermath
Will you sense the shame
I have come to know?
Drop your eery smile
Don't illuminate
Your particular go
Nothing good's gonna come out of that
Nothing good's gonna come out of being here

Nothing good's gonna come out of that
Nothing good's gonna come out of staying here
Burning so low
So low
Burning so low
So low.
Track Name: Naked Bone
A silver spark, a glimpse on life
You're on the outside and among the faces
Where they can always read your mind
Now you've become an open wasteland
You are naked to the bone
Yes, you are naked to the bone

Take your time, but take a side
Then take your seat among the faces
She only speaks through rays of light
Now you've become an open wasteland
You are stripped down to the bone
Yes, you are stripped down to the bone

You've been staying awake all night
Reimagining the open spaces
The alcoves where we used to hide
Now you are like an open wasteland

With all your covers blown
Will you still make it on your own?
Too far beyond the safety zone
Yes, you are naked to the bone
To the bone
Naked to the bone.
Track Name: Bleak November Sun
Now you feel alive again
Since the others turned to stone
All sorrows be gone
No sense in playing that part
Are you playing that part?

A bleak november sun
A slight breeze
Well, they've followed you along

My weak son!
Look we have brought your wounds along!
Bleak sun

Today you got owned again
For all the reasons yet unknown
All sorrows be gone
No sense in losing your heart
Are you losing your heart?

A bleak november sun
A slight breeze
Well, they have followed you along

My weak son!
Look we have brought your wounds along!
Bleak sun

Are you playing that part?
Bleak Sun
Are you losing your heart?
Bleak Sun
Are you playing that part?
Bleak Sun
Are you losing your heart?
Are you playing that part?
Track Name: Anna
Sometimes we still get closer, girl
Until it's almost good
Sometimes you let me pass your door
Just like you always should

Anna, take your time out
Listen to the rustling trees
There might be a story
Conquering your disbelief
Anna, take your time out
Throw your legs into the waves
There might be some glory
It don't matter, if you misbehave

Sometimes we still get closer, girl
Until we're almost near
Now you may cross the borderline
And I'll be waiting here

Anna, take your time out
Listen to the rustling trees
There might be a story
Accelerating our disease
Anna, take your time out
Throw your past into the waste
There might be some glory
It don't matter, if you misbehave

The earth will fall apart, wherever you are
Anna, take your time out
Listen to the rustling trees

The earth will fall apart, wherever you are
Anna, take your time out
Listen to the rustling trees.
Track Name: Hollow Eyes
These are desperate times, you know
When the main attractions leave you so cold
Hollow eyed
Who would have thought, that we can stoop so low?
Like almost paralyzed
The indifferent age has come, I know
I used to send you words, but soon you let them go
Hollow eyed
Who would have thought, that we can stoop so low?

I should be waiting
I should be waiting for another girl
No use in waiting
No sense in waiting for another world
I should be waiting
I should be waiting for another girl
Disintegrating
No sense in waiting for the other worlds.
Track Name: Time
Cast off the cops tonight
It's been a long drive
An early winter comes to carry us home
And into the blackness
We stumble together again
To where we belong

You shall be forgiven
We can not be safe
Time it has come

Come into the blackness
High above the wrestling seas
Carry us home

You shall be forgiven
Will you be brave?
Time it has come
Your time, it has come

Time it has come.
