Alex Rogowsky A criminally underdiscovered band. This album has everything from sugary sweet melodies and imaginative psychedelia to huge rhythms and plenty of "Hell yes" moments. Give it a shot. You won't be disappointed. Favorite track: Sunrise Old.

Track Name: Tortaruga
We're coming second in the human races
'Cause we're living like the setting sun.
We're loving every single body’s faces
'Cause we're living like the setting sun.

And we won't get the connection
'Til they mean it.

Nobody’s gonna be around for the high tide
'Cause we won't be here when the day is done,
And if you say it, won't you say it for the last time,
'Cause you'll be talking 'til the morning comes.

And we won't get the connection
'Til they mean it.

And we're never making it out alive,
Still we're walking, and we're running,
And we're telling all our lovers "goodbye"

And no one's making it out alive,
Still we're walking, and we're running,
And we're telling all our lovers "goodbye"
Track Name: Morning Owls
Harvest the stars you morning owls
We’ll take the blame again.
You’ll never see us here at night time.

Believe it or not this holy war’s been
Raging around the time
That we all left the coastline.

Old times, old times are getting
Old times, old times are getting
Old.
In the light! In the light!

Give us the answer morning owls.
We need to know
Where we’re going.

You know, you know that it’s a cruel world.
I know, I know that it’s
An even crueler sea.

Old times, old times are getting
Old times, old times are getting
Old.
In the light! In the light!

We won’t come back at night time,
No we won’t.
We’re never coming back at night time,
No we won’t.
Track Name: I Do
Don't wait 'til I'm gone to tell me you love me
No crying at the sky above
C'mon now grab me, hug me and hold me
There ain't no thing like your love

I won't hide these feelings inside
A fool with time to spare
I won't wait for time or fate
While all my friends disappear

I've never had a friend before
No i've never had a friend like you
I've never had a friend quite like you

When I say I love you I mean that I love you
Don't take that any other way
Run with it and know that I'm thinking of you
and that I mean the words I say

I won't hide these feelings inside
A fool with time to spare
I won't wait for time or fate
While all my friends disappear

I've never had a friend before
No i've never had a friend like you
I've never had a friend quite like you
Track Name: Bones of Things
Forge a faster way up to my lord.
Reminds me, I don’t love him anymore.
And I remember everlasting light is what you showed to me.
Now I can’t see.

For now the body wins a little war,
And shiny absolution lives next door.
And I can see the bones of things
Are breaking out from under me.
Now I can’t see.

Walking on the sidewalk bleeding
On my footsteps
Sealing cracks and carving tracks
And all I'm doing is
Singing bitter love songs.
Track Name: Don't Wanna Say Goodbye
Shooting star come and gone
Shine on the lonely ones
Look at the state we're in
We cut your name in our skin
There's an emptiness you left behind

Don't wanna say goodbye

I just want to see
You smiling when you think of me
Look at the circumstances
More than a game of chance
There's a light inside i hope you'll find

Don't have to say goodbye

Shooting star come and gone
Shine on, shine on
Track Name: Sunrise Old
Wake me slowly
Or Christ, I won’t escape this lonely
Lake of stone and lake of fire
Mistake this for a
Holy light to warn us
That dreams and treachery conspire.

Lonely does the sunrise

One eye open
And shut the other loosens
The ground conviction lays ahead.
Sweetly, sweetly,
The song that lulls completely
The head, the heart, the lungs
Will breathe the dead.

Lonely does the sunrise

Unceremoniously
Like the others that we left unjustly
Under the night!
Under the night!
Under the night!
“We’re never leaving”
Track Name: Woof!
Escaping narrowly
The sharp blessed seething of night
The dawn is taking no prisoners
Breaking inquisitors down

We'll never bet on the arcane
We're living life from the left of the brain
Meantime, meantime,
We need a cause, we need a cause

Make out the song
That's been bleeding all night
She sings out the effigy
Breaking our chemistry down

We'll never live for the old ways
We'll never live for the old glory days
No we, no we
Won't need a cause, won't need a cause

'Cause the art is the heart of gold
In the young bleeds the heart of old
In the end
We will only long
For the art

The night will take forever
We'll end the night together
Track Name: Disappointed Mothers
See the night, she’s singing to me.
"Oh my love."
Screaming at the lightning
"Turn back to me!"
All these drugs.

Disappointed mothers
Call the ugly older brothers
We believe in you.
Disappointed lovers
Call the ugly and the others
We believe it’s true.

Call them off!
Call them off!
And we will follow,
Again.
Don’t leave it up to them again.
Never leave it up to them again.
No, no, no, no!

Into the dark I’m disappearing
Where have I gone?
When I close my eyes am I still living?
Or am I dust? Just dust.

Disappointed mothers
Call the ugly older brothers
We believe in you.
Disappointed lovers
Call the ugly and the others
We believe it’s true.

Cal them off!
Call them off!
And we will follow,
Again.
Don’t leave it up to them again.
Never leave it up to them again.
No, no, no, no!

Keep it up, I’ll keep it up, I’ll keep it up, I’ll keep it up.
Track Name: Hearts
We enlist the young
To smother out the sun tonight
And with the elder’s tongue
They sing to raise the morning’s light

They tremble
Sentimental hearts
They stumble
Sentimental hearts
They crumble
Sentimental hearts

And now the blood so young
Is soaked in all and everyone
And the Sun so old
Is finding out the Earth’s still cold

They tremble
Sentimental hearts
They stumble
Sentimental hearts
They crumble
Sentimental hearts

It's high time we're outta here
