about

Passiflora is our passion flower; we recorded this EP over a few months in the same basement we practice and hang out in as a cumulative record of our formative foray as The Standby, and a testament to our friendship.

Track Name: Wernicke
Laying you down in heavy pieces,
is the hardest thing to do.

All I see is a dull glow left over, yeah.
The color, it fades and it slowly goes under
again and again, again and again.

And I'm sorry,
as soon as it's here, it's gone again.

Laying you down in heavy pieces,
is the hardest thing to do.

Suffocating from the smoke we snuff, yeah.
The color it fades and it slowly goes under,
again and again, again and again.

And I'm sorry,
as soon as it's here, it's gone again.

Silently lay your hands on me,
I told you once and I'll tell you again:
I am not your medication,
I just wanna be loved for who I am.
Track Name: Passiflora
You spun me around in circles,
clinging to me,
hoping we'd both drown
in the sea between you and me.

Come on, make it easy,
say I never mattered to you.

Fragile like roses,
sinking in the mud.
There's something about this
that makes me wanna believe your someone
(That I can count on)

Come one, make it easy,
say I never mattered to you.
Track Name: Frostbite
Last night I saw your face
in a way I never had before,
It made me question who you were.
In the frost on the window you drew
people that I didn't know.
The glass showed a person
I never really knew at all.

You walked home by yourself
on a cold December evening.
Your face was burned red
since before you even went outside.
The cold it set the mood,
and I know you felt it.
It had to be snowing,
I just wanted you back inside.

Break my ribcage,
and sift through my insides.
Take what you want,
and leave me here to die.

Days had passed, we didn't say a thing
I told you we'd stay the same.
But we couldn't fucking do that,
it was already too god damn late.
I don't really know where the time has gone,
as tears formed in your eyes.
I don't really think I can live like this,
now I've lost you and you're gone for the night.

Break my ribcage,
and sift through my insides.
Take what you want,
and leave me here to die.
I don't really know why I am here,
when you told me to not even try.
I'll break your heart,
and make you fucking cry.
Track Name: Pile of Nothing
Opening remarks, with nothing real to say.
I'm at a loss for words, but you just turn the other way.
You know I feel nothing, but I wanna feel sane.
I don't care how you give it, I'll just take it anyway.

A table between me and the one I love,
a symbol of the lies we tell to everyone who comes.
The distance keeps us happy, yeah the distance keeps us safe.
I give you all I have and you just throw it in my face.

Watch as I quickly crumble into a pile of nothing.
Track Name: Ladykiller
Oh, you have me by my heart.
I try to run from the thought of thinking of you,
to clear my mind as well as pass the time
but the words you say will sting.

You say that I never cross your mind.

The light it leaves your eyes, you are so cold.
Stay with me, stay with me girl.
Your lips, they beg for one last kiss,
oh, stay with me, stay with me, girl.

Now I see what I've become,
and I lie awake.
Your love, it's hatred, it hates things I've done,
but my love has gone insane.

You say that I never cross your mind.

The light it leaves your eyes, you are so cold.
Stay with me, stay with me girl.
I hold you, the ghost of what you were,
oh, stay with me, stay with me girl.

You say that I never cross your mind.

The light it leaves your eyes, you are so cold.
Stay with me, stay with me girl.
I hold you, the ghost of what you were,
oh, stay with me, stay with me girl.

You say that I never cross your mind,
Stay with me, stay with me girl.
Watch as the light leaves from her eyes,
stay with me, stay with me girl.
