This Folding House

There's another house I built in this one
Where the light bends when it touches no one
After all this time my ghost needs a place to stay
A place made out of everyone you've thrown away

It's time for me to go now
It's time to some light through
I am not the ghost for you

I try on new masks for size
But they all have the same eyes
These lives I see, I try them on
I try on new masks for size
But they all have the same eyes
These lives I see are already gone

I keep your ephemera stored in the library
My natural museum of personal history
I trapped myself inside this folding house for months now
Examining the DNA for why and how

It's time for me to go now
It's time to some light through
I am not the ghost for you

Screeching all the while my face turns blue
I rip up every floorboard for clues
I fold the walls and make them new
To try and forget there's nothing I can do

I try on new masks for size
But they all have the same eyes
These lives I see, I try them on
I try on new masks for size
But they all have the same eyes
These lives I see are already gone

You were someone else before I knew you
And you've become someone else again now
I've been consorting with ghosts and wasting my time
Because you were never there for me to find

about

Statue Park Montréal, Québec

Behind soaring, breathy vocals, Statue Park is a blend of intricate guitar interplay, completed by moody, murky samples and bubbly analog synths, driven by a live pulsating, heartbeat of bass and drums. The Montreal quartet manage to carry their complex arrangements to the stage with verve and intensity, delivering a 90s inflected indie rock breathing through epicly layered electronics. ... more
