about

This is a collection of songs that Plume Varia has self released over the course of the last 2 years. The album includes one brand new song, 'Clear'. This is a celebration of the songs that helped shape Plume Varia's unique sound since their inception. It also marks a transitional phase for the duo as they are currently in the process of writing new songs for a coming studio album set to be recorded in May at the historic Sonic Ranch studios in Texas. The album will be produced by the legendary David J (of Bauhaus, Love & Rockets).

Track Name: Clear
Clear

If I know you I’d see through a wall
If I showed you, I’d save you

When you feel like you may warm to me again
And you find your feet underneath you to stand

When I woke today assured I’d gone clear
But it’s hard to wager the ground won here

If I know you, I’d see through a wall
If I knew you, I’d save you

Wait up for me once more
Wait up for me once more

When the world rights enough for peace of mind
I have a taste for the arrows raised to the sky

If I show you, you’d say oh I don’t
I knew you, I’d save you

Wait up for me once more
We’ll take apart the show
Wait up for I’ll show how
Wait up for me once more

When did I ever say I’d meet you here again
And how much longer till I climb a rung ahead (I’m wavering)
When will you let me audit lows and all my fears (keep asking)
How will we manage when you deem a disconnection
I’m not clear
I’m not clear
Track Name: Altar (Live)
Counterpoint on the undone one
Laid on the altar of love
Dissipate some resolution
Push it into a burning fusion

Force it into suffering
Miles left treading sea
Oh that face in a broken mirror
Better you than me

You’re only watching
Sidelined you’re standing

Spellbound in a hazy lounge
Muffles my heartbeat
Facing me without fear
Smoke clouds all I’ve seen

You’re only watching
Sidelined you’re standing
Don’t pray for an understanding
Are you lonely
For somebody

If you knew
You know all along
If you knew
You knew all along
If you knew
You knew, all along

Don’t go walking without a sign from me
Don’t go breaking promises and leave it
Don’t go putting all your faith in me
Don’t go away
Don’t go away
Don’t go away
Track Name: Slumber (Live)
Out here out here on my own
My life, my breath unknown
Weighed down far from your home
Your claim, my hand come undone

Top down, breakdown I’m alone
Wordless, callous, withdrawn
Weighed down far from my home
Your claim, my hand, come undone

Either way without you
Cross the path I lose you
Shift your eyes away now
If I’m a stranger to you

If what we had is over
Shake me from a slumber
I don’t pray to love you
I would pray to break through
Track Name: Vernor
Hey now perfect ghost
I hear you now the most
creep in, sight unseen
alight a grave for me

Tune in every night
you brought Leagues to life
your voice safe as stone
but I'm flesh and bone

Suffer all this space
cruel as the lives we chase
obscene as the truth
awaken my lines to you

Hey now perfect ghost
I hear you now the most
creep in, sight unseen
alight a grave for me
a grave for me
for me

I hear you call
I hear you call
Track Name: Forge
Is this how you come
my love
meaning all you say,
"Are you here?"
My silent ascent
whispers

Will you not come with me
Will you not come with me

Sans arms and words
torch me cavernous
never feel again
in that way

Will you not come with me
Will you not come with me

We'll walk to the sea before we part
I'll hand you this key, it'll come back to me

Will you not come with me
Will you not come with me

We'll walk to the sea before we part
I'll hand you this key, it'll come back to me

My love, my enemy
My love, my enemy

We'll walk to the sea
We'll walk to the sea
Track Name: Prize
I'm a liar babe
a prize liar baby
a funeral is fine
I need to see you

what does that make me
what does that make you
what does that make this tonight

what does that make you
what does that make me
what does that make it tonight, not wrong

I'm not sorry
underneath these lights
I'm ravaged
you've always been mine

what does that make me
what does that make you
what does that make this tonight

what does that make you
what does that make me
what does that make us, tonight

say so everyone already knows
we go falling out of love why heaven knows
what we're for, what we choose to name or ignore
say so what's it all about anymore
the ways I live to love you madly can obscure
I know you don't have to let me let you go
say so everybody already knows
we don't have to live without each other
you know what we choose to name or ignore
I know we don't have to break it anymore
say so everybody already knows
we go falling out of love why heaven knows
we fall, what we choose to name or ignore
say so, what's it all for anymore
the ways I live to love you madly can obscure
but I know you don't have to let me let you go
say so everybody already knows
we don't have to live without each other
the ways you know, what we choose to name or ignore
Track Name: Enable
hear this one, listen up like crazy
loving you a sort of fuel, breathe in
where I am so it seems right here
holding out for your hand take mine now

take me now

baby those pretty eyes bury
all concern and trouble pools lessen
hallowed places cheap embrace don't sway me
breath is held time is near take me now

take me now
take it all
take me now

take you make you
engulf, consume and break you
driving pulse of desire silenced by despair
I surround you
smoke filling each breath, I become you
succumb to me it's the path to peace
the way to truth
enable me
to disable you

take me now
take me now
take it all
take it all

it's over and over and over again
you wear a mask and hide intention
it's over and over and over again
how many times can I say I've changed
it's over and over and over again
when you come back and I let you in
it's over and over and over again
how many promises I make again
it's over and over and over again
when you come back and I let you in
it's over and over and over again
when you fall down and I let you in
it's over and over and over again
when you come back and I take it in
it's over and over and over and over again
Track Name: Bend
What if you're the only thing I need
Fight my battles bend, burn and bleed
You know the only way to make me happy
Let go of what you know can hurt me

Tie my hair up, let it hang low
See beyond my uneven soul
Wage a war against my breeding mind
Show me ways to see another brighter side

Close the shade, turn down lights
Do not slip on my sinking sides
I only want to feel this way
Turn maladies to unwoven maze

It's right this way
to feel this way

A girl like me lives in my mind
You should read the story lines
My hair's a mess, my eyes are too
See them watching only you

See them watching only you
watching and waiting and hoping and baiting
standing on these shores
eyes blinded to the tides
we stand to fight to live to try
pushing away the pull of the moon
lighting the darkness that desires to loom
eyes blinded to the tides
we stand to fight
to love
to try
