about

Abandoned Lighthouse Brooklyn, New York

As desolate as the cold northern coasts, the songs of Abandoned Lighthouse are haunting ambient siren songs of the kind that lured sailors into the rocks. With tidal guitar loops and crashing waves of reverb, Tim Mislock (Holly Miranda/The Antlers) creates vast and evocative noises under wispy pop melodies that crumble like old buildings being attacked by the elements. ... more

Track Name: Firefight
It's a firefight
Should I let this die,
to learn what's right or wrong?
Am I jack or spade?
Should I act my age?
Just burnt by waves.

And it's all gonna fade, away.

I'm so afraid,
to act this way,
to take this blame for you.
So we try and find,
what's left in my mind,
to learn what's right or wrong.

So forget the pain
and drown my name
You'll never be the same.

Just you and me
Our spirits are free
to bathe in the ashes and dust
Now awake and see
what's left of me
a broken dream.
Track Name: Lighthouse
Let me take you down to the abandoned lighthouse.
It's the only place I know, where we can be ourselves.
It's the only place I know, where we can be free
And cast your broken heart out to sea.

Am I losing me?
Are you losing you?
Track Name: Televise
It's so hard to say what
We are to each other now
Are we just humans or
Are we animals?
It's just not fair how we
Speak to and treat one another now
This isn't some silly game
Girl, this is love.

And now you look up to me
From that bed we've made
What can I do to help or
Save you now?

Your hands felt so caring
Wrapped around my neck
Who'd've thought love could feel like this
Never thought I would
Speak like this
Talk like this
Live like this

Who'd've thought you would
Breathe like this
Feel like this

'Cause you know you are
Just wasting time
And my heart is too small
to love your kind
Its weight in gold
Breaks my spine
And my heart is too small.
Track Name: Love of My Heart
Love of my heart, I call for you

But you don't
Pick up the phone
And I can't take no more
My heart can't take no more

And now it's all
Just a game
This love is a charade
And I just can't take no more
My heart can't take no more

And you tried to be
The one for me
But you can't take that kind of honesty
And I just can't take no more

And I tried to be
The one for me
But my heart can't take no more
I just can't take no more
Track Name: Late Night Whiskey
It was late night over whiskey
That she poured her heart to me
She said, "I don't want to be that person,
I'm such a hypocrite Timmy.
I don't know how this happened.
I can't go through this again."
And she kept saying sorry for
Her emotions runnin' in
And the solace passed her by
In the blink of an eye
In the flashing city lights

I know you feel like it's all crashing down

I know your mind's a ghost town
And your heart a sunken wreck
But just remember darlin'
You always said, "no regrets."
So give that wing some time to heal
And I know you'll fly away
You've left too many pieces of your heart
On the floor

I know you feel like it's all crashing down

You are just too loving
For a world like this
So let those fuckers gossip
'Cause I just don't give a shit
Track Name: A Place to Bury Friends
Thunder Dome.
Track Name: Static Stream
It's hard to see yourself
On the shattered screen
The broken glass, the static stream
And when we wake the sun
Will be wrapped around
The picture frames and coffee stains
I saw the future once
In a Polaroid
A forgotten child and his broken toy
The coffin that resides on the ocean floor
Is meant for me and my tired voice

And love you've come so far
With only your broken heart
And it's hard to see, so hard
But the sun will rise again
And I will be a last goodbye
To every ancient sky
But the sun will rise...
The sun will rise again...
