you're months away you've had your time to make the crowds it's an argument to leave you've lost your way with your hands on the wires this is certain to come down so leave your ticket on the ground because it's too late you buried this town and now someone should drive you home you're tired of the distance and you're tired of this defeat with your hands on the wires this is certain to come down so leave your ticket on the ground because it's too late

about

Perfect Halves is the second long-player from the Ashtray Hearts. The album was recorded at Sacred Heart Studios, a landmark nineteenth century cathedral overlooking Lake Superior in Duluth, Minnesota. Recording at the old church during a typical cold and snowy Duluth winter proved to be ideal for the creation of this subtle assembly of wounded songs. On Perfect Halves, the band continues to refine the lush textures first explored on their debut. Recorded on vintage analog equipment, these recordings capture the Ashtray Hearts as they were meant to sound, with the added warmth and natural reverb offered by the high ceilings of Sacred Heart. The songs, written and refined over three years, explore the timeless themes of love and loss.
