Dylan Roth Gentle, pure lo-fi indie with soft, vernal vocal. So atmospheric music. I'm enjoying it. I love you. Favorite track: Sleight Of Hand.

Track Name: Alone Isn't Lonely
I struggle to muster the courage to tell you the truth
“I’m sorry, I don’t think I love you”
I’d watch your face as it falls
Conveying your unwarranted review
See, I’ve been lacking empathy for a while now
My human condition’s a wreck
I’d hate to bestow that upon you
Coupled with my distaste for your presence

And I long to be anywhere but here
And I would rather be with anyone but you tonight

This bitterness looks hideous on you, sweetheart
And to this, we all can attest
So when I leave this evening
I’ll know I’ve made the right decision
Cause it’s mine to make
And I won’t hesitate to remind you of this fact
Cause I’m my own person
Connection is seldom
And there is nothing wrong with that

And I long to be anywhere but here
And I would rather be with anyone but you
Tonight, I will redefine what it means to be alive
Though I’m alone, I’m not lonely anymore
Track Name: Sleight Of Hand
Another morning, another bed
Your front to the wall
Slink out the front gate again
I’m the worst of them all

Your friends are full of shit
You’re good for just one thing
And you’re not really any good at that anyway
I can’t wait to sit in this room and count mistakes that I have made
Maybe I’ll leave here soon

Cut off all your hair and alter your façade
But you’re still the same toxic wretch beneath it all
Maybe tomorrow I won’t wake with this awful thumping in my head
Maybe I won’t wake at all

Again I’m wasting another day
Spent waiting around here
Praying for my hate to dissipate
My mantra is unclear

Cause everything happens in the scent of a second
The sleight of your hand is a force to be reckoned
Dexterity aside, I expected more
Your meaning is fleeting and your presence is the tool
Track Name: Skin Crawl
Skin crawl, a shiver through your bones
A kiss for teeth that can’t chatter all those things you may’ve endured
Another cliché dark highway that shadows broken lights
The way his fingers snapped your soul and devoured all the fight in you

And never again will you let them in
Another stranger, a false pretense
You feel nothing, blind to taste
Chasing all the ghosts away

Free fall, aesthetic lens you hold
That mists the framework, the delusion of the story that you told
Careless flick of the index, dismissal keeps us moving on
I was not there, he was not there, there was nothing wrong at all

Dismissal keeps us moving on
Indulge the story, burn the bones
Track Name: Loose Teeth
One by one, I’ll cut off all my ties to this goddamn town
I’m sick of chasing atrophied feeling
This sweeping city’s haunted for me, ghosts in corners whispering
Of days that I long to forget, but for now the white noise will lend its company

I’m sorry for defiling every memory that you had of me
It was never my intention to develop such a mockery
I promise this will be resolved once I’m not around
Expend energy rebuilding a bridge that I’d burnt to the ground

And pray to some kind of god that these loose teeth won’t defy
And succumb to the night
When we indulge our truths and encourage each other’s vices
My head won’t stop swimming, room would stop spinning
Get me out of this fluorescent light
And drag my sorry bones home
With any luck I’ll wind up somewhere far away from here

One by one, I’ve cut off all my ties to this goddamn town
