about

New songs and a recent re-recorded tune with new sonic pleasures from their now permanent synth player, Sleepy Poetry presents a short album comprised of their new direction. Finding a path can prove difficult and it can take unexpected turns. "Ain't it sad" aims to take listeners on a feely, dancy, largely emotional and thought provoking trip.

Track Name: Do People Even Dance At Coachella?
No one's dancing are they? Well I don't care.
We drove all this way, and there is hell to pay when we get home,
so for tonight I'll lose my fucking phone.

Are you even listening?
I don't think you're listening.
Why aren't you listening?
We should all be listening.

Do you feel that current, when you close your eyes?
Don't look at your screen, be part of the scene you say you bleed,
I promise this is what you need.

Are you even listening?
I don't think you're listening.
Why aren't you listening?
We should all be listening.
Track Name: Leaves
This year they say the leaves won't change like they used to.
It's been a long time coming, we didn't want the truth.

I'm trying not to feel it all tonight, it's alright.
I'm trying not to feel it all tonight, it's not alright.

It's not enough just to know what is wrong, we don't stop, we are part of the problem
All that we want is to feel something real, at what cost? We don't care, this is awful.

It's a slow death, to die amidst all that we have.
If only we could slow down, we could turn things around.

I'm trying not to feel it all tonight, it's alright.
I'm trying not to feel it all tonight, it's not alright.

It's not enough just to know what is wrong, we don't stop, we are part of the problem
All that we want is to feel something real, at what cost? We don't care, this is awful.
Track Name: Sad Girl
Something's wrong with me, I like feeling empty I don't like it when I'm full.
Thinkin bout the wind blowing away my wasted body kinda soothes my soul.

And oh, ain't it sad? I don't even have it half as bad as most of the world,
but this isn't a pissing contest, I'm just feeling floored.

Yesterday I woke, foggy from the night before but right next to my love.
And it was enough just to know that someone wants me, now I'm not so sure.

And oh, ain't it sad? I don't even have it half as bad as most of the world,
but this isn't a pissing contest, I'm just feeling floored.
Track Name: Talking (Saying Nothing)
You talk too much
Do you ever stop?
The words keep flowing out, I want to turn them off
They're drops of water on my forehead.
They collect like glistening beads on my blank paper skin, and the ink starts to bleed...
They're dripping a dent into my confidence
They're dripping a dent into my consciousness

When I leave you my hair smells like smoke
My mouth is full of the words I never spoke
Cause you were talking, saying nothing, cause you just don't care
You were talking, saying nothing, filling up the air

I think too much,
I always will.
I want to know what's on your mind, especially when you're still.
But you will never let me inside.
All your words are cold and they're empty, I don't want to hear them, they'll only upset me.
They're dripping a dent into my confidence
They're dripping a dent into my consciousness

When I leave you my hair smells like smoke
My mouth is full of the words I never spoke
Cause you were talking, saying nothing, cause you just don't care
You were talking, saying nothing, filling up the air
