I come home to this empty house And fall asleep in my empty bed Sometimes it's alright Sometimes it gets so loud To hear my thoughts bounce around in my empty head I don't know what I'd do without you I'm not too sure what I'm doing now Time slows down when I think about you I've tried to turn it back, but I don't know how I waste my time on this messy couch And leave clothes on the messy floor In the back of my mind I know I should clean up But I lack the strength and patience to do it anymore I know I felt completely lost without you A solid breeze could knock me down Space stretches out when I think about you I try to keep my balance but I'm reeling now Spent my time Wishing I'd spend my time a little better But I can't find the strength to pick myself back up and carry on I used to think That I would give so much to make things work I couldn't give enough My final chance has come and gone

I wish I had a camera that could capture The way that Ursa Major Sat astride the Mohawk River On that cool night in September That I will always remember When you step into another dimension, You can oddly feel at home When you’re face-to-face with purest intention, You won’t ever be alone I wish I had a camera that could capture The way that Ursa Major Sat astride the Mohawk River On that cool night in September That I will always remember

When things are going fine, When nothing's out of place, My eyes can somewhat trace The cracks in the foundation of my mind Instead of patching up I drive a wedge between My awful intuition And the things I desperately need: comfort, closeness, I watch them fall apart and leave me crumbling, broken I turn to dust and blow away The chasm hungers on I feed it with my thoughts And watch it grow into a monster That can gorge itself upon My insecurities And every secret fear Until it's big enough to crush me And keep me numb and cold down Here is not where I belong (please someone get me out, I'm drowning in my doubt) Begging for help feels so wrong (I can't give up just yet, I've still got so much left) Here is not where I belong (please someone get me out, I'm drowning in my doubt) Begging for help feels so wrong (I can't give up just yet, I've still got so much left) Just when things seem better than they should, I give up on everything that's good

Spent the season inside, Feeling helpless and locked in my mind, in my mind Knowing just what I need, But I never made the time, made the time The weight crushing my chest Keeps me completely paralyzed So I lie there and wait For the only thing that feels good When sleep closes my eyes And I know, I know It’s all in my head, But it seems way more real than it should And I know, I know It’s artificial dread If I could ignore it, I would And I know, I know It’s all in my head, But it seems way more real than it should I know, I know… You reach for me And I reach back out Just to push you away You reach for me And I reach back out Just to push you away And it shows, it shows I know they all see It’s as plain as the nose on my face So it goes, so it goes So I’ll keep pretending That it’s not impeding my pace I know, I know, I know…

We knew you weren't perfect That behind that smiling face Was the painful snarl of one who fell from grace But the music seemed to comfort you Kept your demons at bay And your focus on a brighter day Before your curtain call, tell me you're coming home The brief moments that we shared The honest soul that you bared Your words that sparked the fires of such youth And though you're running late The brokenhearted waits Will remain to catch the ashes that you left Before your curtain call, tell me you're coming home Before your last sand falls, just know you're not alone Before your curtain call, tell me you're coming home Before your last sand falls, just know you're not alone You've got your own hands around your neck, around your neck, around... You've got your own hands around your neck, around your neck, around... You've got your own hands around your neck, around your neck, around... You've got your own hands around your neck, around your neck, around... You've got your own hands around your neck, around your neck, and I hope you don't squeeze too tightly You've got your own hands around your neck, around your neck, and I hope you don't... Before your curtain call, tell me you're coming home, tell me you're coming home Before your last sand falls, just know you're not alone, know you're not alone Before you give up the ghost, please pick up your phone, pick up your phone Because I need to hear your voice and tell you just how much you mean to me

Can’t escape the white noise and static Of this paradox I swore I’d never end up in I’m putting myself to sleep I’m getting through the week I’m putting distance between you and me It's something I left behind Back in the golden years I miss that scene that made me feel alive Is it worth it now to kill some time? 'Cause if so, I’m gonna murder it all Staring at a cell phone Dreaming of the life I want to live Is this who I’ve become? Is this what all these aspirations added up to be? Well, I’m not happy anymore When I wake up I don’t want anything My mind runs in circles while I circle what’s wrong But let’s not get carried away You gave it hell from the start Now we'll call it a day Sometimes it feels like nothing's wrong Sometimes I’m barely holding on I wish my path were more direct I wish I had some better ends So I could lay here instead Stare at my phone and never leave my bed Never leave my bed

You took me by the hand And led me to a mirror You left me there with roots upturned Too stunned to even speak I couldn't recognize The image of a face so shattered But I came to realize That broken visage isn't me I'm turning over new leaves And blossoming into me I'm turning over new leaves And blossoming... I don’t believe in fate, but this just might be, might be it. I don’t believe in fate, but this just might be, might be it. I don’t believe in fate, but this just might be, might be it. I don’t believe in fate, but this just might be, might be it. I don’t believe in fate, but this just might be, might be it. I don’t believe, don’t believe, don’t believe… Suspended hearts, Once stolen, uninvited, Now chosen, reunited, And intertwined Across the sea of possibility You reached for me again And took me by the hand

It rained on me through the window While waiting for you to call You watch me stare at the ceiling Even though you aren't here at all They tell me, when we wake up, That all this will disappear But I don't know if I want to Forget what's become so dear You told me you'd be a seagull, Could you do it all again If I had a shot at redemption, I'd settle for being friends I won't insist you don't exist Spread your wings and fly (into the sun) Fly into the sun And never return I’m lost in an ocean of you So deep and so blue Your wishes came true I won't insist you don't exist You don't

about

"In many ways, the Pittsburgh post-emo band Frame and Mantle are exactly what so many listeners need in an era of increasing uncertainty and struggle. Following their well-received EP While Our Fields Lie Fallow, they have reshaped their lineup and re-emerged with a record that explores the anxieties, self-doubts and frustrations that paint the experiences of an ever-increasing swath of the population while presenting a dynamic sonic tapestry that welcomes exuberance and hopefulness in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. On Lost Under Nighttime Sky, the band acknowledges the often too-relatable sensation of being adrift without a destination in sight, but reminds us that when we take the time to stare into the depths of the darkness that’s often when the universe reveals the most stunning and rewarding vistas.
Dealing with topics such as self-sabotage, regret, longing and losing heart, and facing harsh realities like suicide and the crushing weight of a future that seems to grow dimmer by the day, Frame and Mantle pull no punches with their listeners and offer no easy answers. But what they do present is the opportunity to revel in the one thing that connects us through the most trying of times. The music on Lost Under Nighttime Sky is bursting with the kind of heart-swelling, impenetrable joy that never ceases to live within us even when it may seem difficult to express. The compositions bounce along with a carefree vibrancy that allows listeners to ascend to heights from which it is far more comfortable to face their own truths reflected in the lyrical content. Soaring chords interweave with striking vocal melodies, driven by lively percussion and accents of horns that appear at the most opportune moments to drive the songs toward a horizon that feels increasingly bright and promising.
With a focus on crafting layers and textures that lean into post-rock territories, Lost Under Nighttime Sky has a dramatic, celestial quality that affords it a true sense of time and space. It sounds like twilight feels, where for a specific, finite period everything takes on a different shading, we perceive differently, and our senses are given an instant to find profundity in that which so often seems familiar and unremarkable. It’s in these fleeting moments that we learn to honor the beauty that’s hard-won, and that understanding is at the core of Lost Under Nighttime Sky; that feeling of pulling through the deepest darkness and discovering that there is something inspiring on the other side. It’s not an easy time to be young right now, but as the album’s final refrain exclaims: 'spread your wings and fly into the sun.' What else can any of us do but attack life with as much vigor as possible and mark the sheer experience as paramount?"
-David Zeidler, Young Epoch
