Wonder Why 04:43
Freedom is a fantasy I grow Like most things they come and then they go I dreamt you now I can make you go Leave these busted bones and crack the code Just for one moment, I I could not I could not stop wonder why I throw my head down All of my lies I glimpsed the truth between the lies Subway cars go running through my mind Caught down below I could not define Gone before you even made me mine Just for one moment, I I could not I could not stop wonder why I throw my head down All of my lies Still I glimpse these old ideas of home Weighted down inside my gypsy soul Must be why I never feel alone Must be why I never feel alone Just for a moment, I Just for a moment

Crystal Lake 03:56
He woke up late It was a Saturday night He was not in his head She can’t relate She was buzzing around On that side of Crystal Lake Oh he thought that you might know better Oh he thought that you In a sentimental mood, is this the mood that you’ve been looking for? Living out in Crystal Lake He’s been drifting in the morning ‘til the warm nights Down to the kicks he laid to waste Pavement gets hot ‘til you let it fill the river Then it’s nothing more than liquid gray She said he looks like Nirvana, then won’t even let him borrow Her goddamn Chevrolet About that time That time of that night, Realize that he lost the fight She’s throwing spades Were it diamonds or hearts He would maybe know what to say Oh he thought that you might know better Oh he thought that you Might know better too Oh he thought that you might know better In a sentimental mood, is this the mood that you’ve been looking for? Living out in Crystal Lake He’s been drifting in the morning ‘til the warm nights Down to the kicks he laid to waste Pavement gets hot ‘til you let it fill the river Then it’s nothing more than liquid gray She said he looks like Nirvana, then won’t even let him borrow Her goddamn Chevrolet

Act so sophisticated Don't have a clue You build a house of mirrors I see right through I’ll make it simple for you One two, one two Do like the birds in winter Do what those songbirds do Keep it light You paint yourself a picture Of hope and doubt You got some poison in you Let's get it out I'll make it simple for you Breathe in, breathe out Don't keep that magic in you When you should let it out Keep it light You got the fire to get through the darkest night You got the fire to get you through dark and light

Water got me sliding I'm stuck in the flow Water show me how to go I’ve been struck by lightning I pick up the frames I don't feel the same Something must have got me Face down in the dirt Save me from a world of hurt Clouds that move inside me I thought you could care All I wanted was your air Sleep in late on Friday I fill up the jar I can't leave from where you are We can change it later We can change it now Brand new empty house

Maze 05:22
One time, I was climbing up your vine Seeking for sunlight, caught in a slow bitter grind This was back when you were a friend of mine In the maze in the back of your house we forgot about time One night, I was a buoy in your sea Swayed by the waves, I was helpless and free We both changed our names when we moved to the city I said we both changed our names when we moved to the city You wanted this to be effortless and free But this is not a movie set, so have another cigarette If it keeps the world at bay, just another day You could meet me in the maze I’ve been climbing up my walls Waiting for sunlight, waiting for that call On that morning when I see it all I hear the maze, I let my body fall One night, I will sink into the breeze Drop my bags, I’ve been looking like those leaves I will not wait for you to let me I will not wait for you to let me You wanted this to be effortless and free You could meet me in the maze I know those brighter days, they slip away, they slip away I love them anyway, yeah anyway You could meet me in the maze

Green Leaf 04:32
Press into a single seed Wait until it falls from me I take the time that I need Put it on the line for a breeze Trickle slow through me like concrete The way you fill my vein tastes too sweet Green leaf incomplete Try to catch the sun from my own eyes Light up another one that leaves me so shy Face down in your wave like you own my Cup of water flowing from the inside I find a seed in you, I’m pulling on your vine I climb into your room, a bullet in the sky Green leaf, incomplete

Glory Be 03:35
When she was young wrote a song And it sounded like America with the windows down She wants to be gone to some other place outside her Saltwater sun on the back of her neck Is this the answer that you’ve been looking for? On moving on, on losing the sound It took ten years’ confusion To find a few true things Shade on the pages Made in the sun Ten years’ confusion To find a few true things Dust on the headlights Everything’s hazy Glory be Glory be the fast food, glory be the rest stop Glory be the pavement, glory the night The radio’s a preacher, the highway is a church Some kind of religion in the stoplight It took ten years’ confusion To find a few true things Shade on the pages Made in the sun Ten years’ confusion To find a few true things Dust on the headlights Everything’s hazy Glory be

Your Demand 05:29
Come on baby, I want your demand Standing at the door, she said I don’t want to live in America no more ‘Cause I’m tired and I’m stoned and I haven’t seen anything pure in a decade or more Honey what’s it for? All this striving is making me so bored All I wanted was a window to myself With a view looking out on the shore Come on baby, I want your demand If I ever get the chance I’m gonna tell ‘em how it was How you showed me so much majesty Then kicked out my only crutch Does it feel like I’m holding a grudge? Come on baby, I want your demand

Shadow 04:46
You used to be my own shadow You used to live outside of me You used to be my own shadow Now I'm free You used to follow me into the daydream You sleep in my head Always wait to be alone So I can hop on my throne instead But it's not you I'm talking to It’s not you You follow me too I was always trying to kick you off my shoe That's how I know that you need me Just like I need you Why won't you come into my window? And I will let you knock down my door too I will open my mouth Wide enough for you It’s not you I'm talking to I would not leave you alone ‘cuz then I would be so alone It's not you I'm talking to It’s not you, yeah it’s not you Baby, it’s not you

Bluer to Me 05:14
I’ve been a pleasure seeker I've been looking for you too I've been a soft speaker I've been running ‘round my room I've been low down slow down Yeah lower than you too I've been too long gone now To wonder how I've been so used Your eyes are bluer to me now Now that you're far from me, far from me Your eyes are bluer to me now Now that you're gone from me, gone I've been a blues racer And it's time that I lose I've been a fool chaser Running ‘round looking for you And once I slow down I lost my latitude I've been a time waster Too much spent on you Your eyes are bluer to me now Now that you're far from me, far from me Your eyes are bluer to me now Now that you're gone from me, gone I was a pleasure seeker seeking pleasure Seeking never to be caught in no one’s arms again You were a pair of arms I passed through on my way before but never thought I'd fall into again You were a pleasure seeker, you let it make you weaker You were a pleasure seeker, so was I

about

"Musically, the album grooves in psychedelic, soulful passage - guitars glimmering with tremolo, electric organ humming, lead singer Solei’s recognizable vocals gliding on top of the mix. It hits with a pang of nostalgia for long nights spent with friends." - Sound of Boston

full review: soundofboston.com/album-premiere-glory-night-atlas-lab/

"These are well crafted, intentional, and often times deeply moving serenades that simultaneously slip your thoughts into a dreamlike purgatory that you don’t want to leave." - Boston Hassle
