Howie Howard Slightly rootsy, slightly post-punk rock tunes with a hazy, spacy twist. All the details are right and there are a lot of them, rewarding repeat listens. Favorite track: The Rapture.

End of Days 03:30
It's plain to see it's the end of days My car will crash, and I'm ok The darkened days won't go away And my room is soaked by the flooding rains I don't know how this all began The seven trumpets or the four horsemen Or maybe it's all in my head But either way I'll stay indoors and lay in bed And fall to sleep No need to breathe 'Cause I'm in over my head And it's too late To see it through I'll see you soon (Guitar solo) And fall to sleep No need to breathe 'Cause I'm in over my head And it's too late To see it through I'll see you soon

Starry Night 05:19
Damned again under the sky Your old moon fades to a friend of mine And all we need falls right on time This situation don't feel right The funny part has got to be I'm drifting away from knowing me We drink the things we want to say And come last call you stand over me Starry starry starry night I hit the ground and look up at the lights The evening sky's never been so clear And I have to wonder what I'm doing here Starry starry starry night I'm sure that things will be alright And when you know you never care And when I'm down they know me here A sip of wine, a sip of beer We come to relieve the stress in here And after all we had to escape A brand new way to disappear And as for tonight, I'll drown my tears With a sip of wine, and a sip of beer I swallow until you don't know me and then I get knocked down and get back up again So, why do we do this to ourselves? We're out of line and we feel like hell I'm down here, and no one else Feel in hope, and burn in health So, why do we do this to ourselves? Helpless and falling under a spell Don't hide your bitterness, just sing Sometimes you don't want to have to think Starry starry starry night I hit the ground and look up at the lights The evening sky's never been so clear And I have to wonder what I'm doing here Starry starry starry night I'm sure that things will be alright And when you know you never care And when I'm down they know me here

When you're ready to heal, let me know But God only knows how things got so cold All our heroes will die all alone They can't do much more than fall to the floor I know that you're lost And you're trying to find your way home If you can't find a way to feel love Don't fight to control, just live and let go I know that you're lost And you're trying to find your way home And I'll try, and I'll try, and I'll try And I'll try not to let it go Just let me know When the lights won't come on anymore Just change the bulb, don't lie on the floor It's entirely possible I'm still in control But how would I know? And I'll try, and I'll try, and I'll try And I'll try not to let it go Just let me know

Dreaming 04:26
I'm on the edge of the precipice My fingers shake as I stare into the abyss And I don't know how it came to this But as I jump I wake up and feel remiss I tightrope faster than I walk on the land My pockets heavy, 'cause I've filled them with sand And as I get to my bed, I fall down My vision narrows to a point, and I fall to sleep And I'm dreaming About keeping My hands tied To the bottle Dreaming About keeping Floating To the bottom (Guitar solo) And I'm dreaming About keeping My hands tied To the bottle Dreaming About keeping Floating To the bottom

You could do more, but you settle for less and less We need to find you your floor You're burning bridges, and you're sounding off all alarms Another forecast of war I search my chest for the energy to fight back With all these broke metaphors You are the anchor wrapped around my neck As the sea turns from blue to black And that's why I'm going down I'm going down in flames I'm going down I'm going down in flames You bide your time, but you're waiting to settle a score Justification be warned You couldn't wait for that one mistake to explode And all the fallback you love You could do more, but you're running out of time 'til I can't fight anymore Like Sisyphus, I keep rolling this rock up a hill Until it all falls apart And that's why I'm going down I'm going down in flames I'm going down I'm going down in flames (Guitar solo) And that's why I'm going down I'm going down in flames I'm going down I'm going down in flames I'm going down I'm going down in flames

Nevermind 03:58
Well, a moment of elation Turns to bitterness and lies Well, I prayed to God I would find you, but Nevermind, nevermind Well, a momentary lapse of judgment Can determine the rest of your life Well, I prayed I would find you, but I was wrong Nevermind Well, I'm lonely enough to call you But I'm not lonely enough to try Well, I'd prayed that sometime I would finally find how to let you go But, how do I? How do I? Well, I'm doing fine All of the time But out of my mind Behind the eyes How many times Oh, must I lie? I'm doing fine I'm doing fine I want someone I'll hold on to I want something I can't float through I want someone I'll hold on to I need someone but that's not you Well, a moment of elation Turns to bitterness and lies Well, I prayed to God I would find you, but Nevermind, nevermind

I Won't Stay 04:17
When I wake up from a dream Turns a silence to a scream And I know what's happening It's that you're gone, gone, gone Hey, hey, I won't stay I won't cry, I won't beg I'll start small, I won't call (Whenever you aren't near me) Hey, hey, I won't stay The bitter moon Well, I know what I should do Move slow Hey, hey, I won't stay I won't cry, I won't beg I'll start small, I won't call (Whenever you aren't near me) Hey, hey, I won't stay (Guitar solo) Hey, hey, I won't stay I won't cry, I won't beg I'll start small, I won't call (Whenever you aren't near me) Hey, hey, I won't stay

Space Song 05:01
I feel small, and stand in awe of all I'll never know It's so dark, and feels so far from out here on my own I can't stand to see the horizon, it's rising and falling like the stars Don't know what's out here waiting, but I wanted to go And I want you to know You don't notice just how far, 'til you're looking back on the world I don't care to see what's begun, what is happening, and what is done I can't stand to see the horizon, it's rising and falling like the stars Don't know what's out here waiting, but I wanted to go And when the dawn arises, I hope you'll be strong You're gonna miss me, darling 'Cause when the day is breaking, I'm already gone But I'm wishing, and wishing I'd stayed there I want you to know I don't know just where I went wrong, and why I'm on my own Nothing to feel, just embraced by the sun, and the sea, and the stars And when the dawn arises, I hope you'll be strong But do you miss me, darling? 'Cause while I'm out here waiting, I know you'll move on So I'm wishing, and wishing I'd stayed there I want you to know (Guitar solo) And I want you to know

Waves 05:55
Close your eyes, take a bow The time has come, it's over now I seek the truth and tell no lies You can see it too, this is goodbye, for now The cruelest fate, unwelcome games Stop time, I can't win this way I slow it down without a sound Close my eyes, and think of how Somehow we made it through the sound Of thunderstorms and clouds I did the best I could allow But the waves will settle now This is not the end This is just a bend This is not an apology now
