Adam Casey Excellent EP from Candid Kid. Incredible level of complexity and depth for a debut EP. My favorite track is Bell but each one is a gem. Favorite track: Bell.

Pathetic 03:43
All the cards that you hold Mean nothing when they are known In a game where truth comes veiled So when I rush to the punch My candid complexion is too much But it’s not an uncommon tale He’ll take the tar past top his tongue To feel the buzzing in his blood After the whiskey he’ll wail That this was just enough It seems the perfect crutch But a handicap lover fails Duke it out with the smoke in the silence We know starving hearts prevail But for now you’ve got plenty of eyes on those thighs And I look so pathetic still, pathetic still Come on, cover up your playing hand please You’re making this too easy Stop dropping cards sweating in fear of me Pick them up, dust off your knees For me, you’re making this too easy Duke it out with the smoke in the silence We know starving hearts prevail But for now you’ve got plenty of eyes on those thighs And I look so pathetic still, pathetic still Duke it out with the smoke in the silence We know starving hearts prevail But for now you’ve got plenty of eyes on those thighs And I look so pathetic still Duke it out with the smoke in the silence We know starving hearts prevail But for now you’ve got plenty of eyes on those thighs And I look so pathetic still, pathetic still

Young 03:41
Piled up in boxes from the back of apartments There are clues to the reason why my feet are smaller than my shoes Tripping over clerical dues Surrendered to the grace of my face hitting pavement It was just as memorable as when your lips touched mine But how these twisted memories lie We always feel young, in the park, after nightfall Kiss away the clothes that are holding us back from Grass between our toes and the feelings we confuse with love So now we’re stacking up on material compounds To fill holes in hearts with things our mothers could not have found While they shopped for wedding gowns Cause we’re just the rebellion, a radical regime Money for the media, we’re so tongue and cheek Oh my! But how does anybody grow up right We always feel young, in the park, after nightfall Kiss away the clothes that are holding us back from Grass between our toes and the feelings we confuse with love I get confused as she leaves the room This wasn’t love, it was just something to do And we’re so concerned with all the words that we work This wasn’t love, we just had something to prove We always feel young, in the park, after nightfall Kiss away the clothes that are holding us back from Grass between our toes and the feelings we confused with love We always feel young, in the park, after nightfall Kiss away the clothes that are holding us back from Grass between our toes and the feelings we confused with love Feelings we confuse with love

Bell 03:35
Call it what you want We were just too young To be playing with cocked and loaded grown up guns Now we know damn well At least I can better tell That you were not worthy of how hard I fell So clean it up Soak up the blood Wring it out into the mud And wash it well I know because you kiss and tell The sound found ringing from a broken bell I believe in the ground moving beneath my feet So I work harder You were just my ingest of a sweet deceit So I work harder again Cover up your canvas With coffee stains and lug Around the remains of a leaking mug Cause what once woke us up Now is not enough The callus that comes from a daily drug First it’s a factory feel Then you’re forced to kneel And subsequently with the devil making a deal I wasn’t then But I think I might now be A man of steel I believe in the ground moving beneath my feet So I work harder You were just my ingest of a sweet deceit So I work harder again I believe in the ground moving beneath my feet So I work harder You were just my ingest of a sweet deceit So I work harder again I work harder again I work harder again

Summer 03:43
I will chase the sun to the heir of my west coast love And take it back because it’s all I have We can take the weight of the world as we make it ash And through our fingers we will let it pass So come on, carry on as the lovers in the lawn Where such callus grows on our tongues And we can move away to a place we won’t feel shame It’s a place where nobody remembers your name We grow worthless in the summer But it’s worth it to be your lover I never knew that giving up could get me to you Never knew it was true When your spit is spent on the pennies for the rent It’s a call or catch twenty-two Because I would rather know that I’d be coming home To a woman with a solid backbone We grow worthless in the summer But it’s worth it to be your lover I never knew that giving up could get me to you Never knew it was true Everybody’s still making all the same old sounds You and I, we were hiding in the back of town Everybody’s still making all the same old frowns You and I, we were hiding in the back of town We grow worthless in the summer But it’s worth it to be your lover I never knew that giving up could get me to you Never knew it was true We grow worthless in the summer But it’s worth it to be your lover I never knew that giving up could get me to you Never knew it was true I never knew that giving up could get me to you Never knew it was true
