about

Maybe The Moon California

Karmen Kimball & Alex Lasner met at a party on 12/21/12, the day the Mayan calendar predicted the world would end. That night, they struck up a conversation about their mutual love for Bryan Ferry & Roxy Music, & realized they had both gone to the same elementary school. They got engaged a few weeks later &, have been in the studio, working on an EP they plan to release during 2016. ... more

Track Name: Glorious Machines
They won't remember
The things you can't forget
And when it's over
With only seconds left
You'll think about it
You'll wonder what it meant
You had your lovers
They all just came and went
And then it's over

Never meant to be
Glorious machines
Haunted by the faults
In our circuitry

Was it fear of fate?
Or was it something more?
That made you recreate
The pain you'd known before
You'll think about it
The things you once ignored
Like all the good days
You never could afford
And then it's over

Never meant to be
Glorious machines
Haunted by the faults
In our circuitry
Track Name: Two Birthdays
No measure of one's hate
Will ever match the love
I have for you, still
I do, my dear
Clear through the thick and thin
Hunger that starved my skin
Could never define
My love for you

Two birthdays
In a year
Just yours and mine
New candles
Same wishes
Without reply

Pictures as souvenirs
Dreams of forgotten fears
I want you right here
Right here, again
Gone is the time we spent
Seasons of discontent
But oh, what I've learned
Since you were near

Two birthdays
In a year
Just yours and mine
New candles
Same wishes
Without reply

Different corners of the same page
You were the shine of my brightest day

Two birthdays
In a year
Just yours and mine, mine
New candles
But
Same wishes, kept
Without reply
Track Name: Washout
I loved you before
I could love myself
My mistake
I tried to ignore
The way that it felt
Went astray
My mistake

A different face
In the same mirror
I couldn't tell
Who
Might appear

It wasn’t enough
To have the right thoughts
Made wrong moves
Here, with you

A different face
In the same mirror
I couldn't tell
Who
Might appear

I washed you right out
I made you afraid, love
Against every doubt
Your heart kept its shape up

A different face
In the same mirror
I couldn't tell
Who
Might appear

I washed you right out
I made you afraid, love
Against every doubt
Your heart kept its shape up
Track Name: Big Night/Small Town
Where to go now?
Everyone left
Like a freeze out
Back to their nests
Spirits on ice
Couldn't cool down
Such a big night
In a small town

It's easy
To stay at home
When people
Are frightened
By what they're told
Could happen
We're lost

Out in the street
Feelin' alone
How can such heat
Leave us so cold?

It's easy
To stay at home
When people
Are frightened
By what they're told
Could happen

But how
Can we make friends
If we
Don't talk
To strangers
Now and then?
We're lost

It's easy
To stay at home
When people
Are frightened
By what they're told
Could happen

But how
Can we make friends
If we
Don't talk
To strangers
Now and then?
We're lost
Track Name: Hammers See Nails
What in the world
Could he say?
Hammers see nails
In every face
All of the strength
In his jaw
Wouldn't hold back
His need to talk
Every time he

Tried to keep it light
Heavier nerves
Put up a fight
Rows of pearly whites
Always alert
Morning to night

Your tongue forgot
Words are wings for thoughts
Details aren't the main attraction

Couldn't unsee
What he saw
Try as he may
To brush it off
Ashes from cigarettes
Meet the ground
Others walk past
He starts to shout
Every time he

Tried to keep it light
Heavier nerves
Put up a fight
Rows of pearly whites
Always alert
Ready to bite

Your tongue forgot
Words are wings for thoughts
Details aren't the main attraction

Guess your tongue forgot
Words give wings to thoughts
Details aren't the main attraction
