Intro 02:16
Fact, Fiction Truth, Lies Perception creates the line uneven, blurred and bruised the line where life resides The Mask we bare reality to the masses fantasy to the self Dreams, a collection of lies unconscious become truth when spoken Friendly faces of a tradesman on-call become those of the Piano Man waiting waiting for the kill Life is truth, composed of lies. Life is the fact, that inspires the fiction.

Graven lover Fatherless women fall Like no other You will do what you’re told Waking up a fool’s errand Mountains of resistance Choking on earth and dust Blood that seems spilled to rust We won’t let go From our halls, our home We won’t let go Lights burn ghost towns Vigilante savior who Comes to rest in this place too Numb to bodies in the wake Show you give what you can take We won’t let go From our halls, our home We won’t let go The lights burn ghost towns And one more salvager sent to save us We are so close but I can’t reach home

Silver Fox 04:25
Take a minute before you speak I want to sort this out Last I heard you fell for her You’re not proud You the one they all adore I’m not immune Trials are dire charlatan Charisma the fool It always ends like this It always ends like this Who can say Who can say I’m in love without an end When disavowed by you Lead them all to civil states Imprison hearts as food It always ends like this It always ends like this You know I know You know I know We should let go Our fault I saw Who’s left to say You know I know You’re not asking at all You know I know Who’s left to say

Fort Bliss 03:58
I’m bleeding on the road Near the valley of fire Outside of Fort Bliss nowhere We talked of a killer Through kindling on the pyre Came upon them white in the sun I want it all I wait for none If you believe Then we have won It’s not for nothing I’d take you with me This is the long road Savor the quiet You’ll never know me I’ll keep it contained I’m ready for me You will control me (take it over) Stay on your side My arms on mine We draw it back And I’ll take more in-kind Please keep your tyrants away Keep your cautions I’ll drink my fear I want it all I wait for none Do you believe We have won I want it all I wait for none If you believe We have won
5.
I'm Lost 04:23
Why you’ve changed this all before Now you dare come round for more Do you tire of what you won How the spell has come undone I’m lost I’m lost Emotion overtake you in Now you’re starting up again I don’t favor any part In fact you make me sick and hard I’m lost I’m lost I’m lost I’m lost You are so close I almost felt your touch I’m lost (repeat)
6.
At Sea 02:45
You’re standing there Refuse to see I’ll light the way To what is free Slight girl is all Such majesty Comes back to pull A victory If you are afraid You can lean on me I’ve known the way The solemn tears We’ll call it down They will not see I’ll take the line of A man at sea What is this Did you say What you want Stay the same I’ve said nothing You’ll take care of me The way you do The way you do
7.
Nightfall 06:54
I came home late And I stood on our doorstep And you said All I never thought I’d want to hear I let your wave wash over When the tide is out Here I am All you never meant to hurt Now what I don’t know What I don’t know Only what you want What you said It’s how I’m made Here we fall How we’ll take Ancient lies Come to sing Every word What we break Here’s your ending A long night Here’s your ending At long last As I made fact All safe I’m home now Alone now You don’t know This heart meltdown You say I don’t let go Say I don’t take all Won’t you say Wonders are graceful Nightfall, nightfall Nightfall, nightfall I don’t need (what you can’t give me) When you take a breath Of her hair tonight Will you sell all your endless long lies the endless tide In this your time In this, the light In this, the light We’re fine

Fact | Fiction is the debut album from Plume Varia, the Denver based Lush Pop duo consisting of husband and wife, Shon and Cherie Cobbs, and produced by David J Haskins (of Bauhaus and Love & Rockets).

Fact | Fiction was recorded at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo TX in March of 2016. This album was produced by and features David J Haskins of Bauhaus/Love & Rockets, with a special appearance by Josh Freese (of Nine Inch Nails, Devo, The Vandals, The Replacements...) on "Nightfall"

With influences ranging from Fleetwood Mac, to Bauhaus, to Beach House, Plume Varia has drawn comparisons to The XX, Lana Del Ray, Wye Oak, Beach House, Mazzy Star, and Portishead. Their songs are balanced compositions of thoughtful lyricism, lilting melody and dark, brooding production.

Fact | Fiction is a concept album that explores the lines between fantasy and reality. Side A was inspired by true events, locations, and people while side B draws inspiration from works of fiction. The record explores themes of love, loss, life, death, and how the lines between truth and lies, fact and fiction are so often blurred and fleeting.
