The Mustache Club Ryan has always been my favourite Akron/Family member; was very disappointed when he left the band. Great to find out he's releasing solo music now! Favorite track: Understood.

Track Name: Understood
Undefinable,
Undeniable,
Unrealized,
Unwritten,

Understood.

I feel like I forgot to tell you something,
Or there is always something more to say…

Do not forget me!
Do not forget you!
I will not forget me!
I will not forget you!
Track Name: Lucky To Be Under You
Sometimes your face flashes in my mind
Like a bell ringing in the sky,
The pain of your absence and the shame of my coldness
Surge through my body in my blood and bones and marrow.

I curse the moment that I fell for my dirty self serving spell,
Enchanted by a fearsome darkness and the ease of aloneness.

Your heart still beats somewhere in this twisted beautiful world
Your feet still walk streets they are lucky to be under you
Flowers still turn to the shining of your eyes
Stars still burn in the midnight blue of your mind.

I never thought that I would be so many things that I am,
I never thought that I could lose so many things I never had.
The mirror shows a different face than it did when I knew you
It bears a scar or two, of knowing how much I hurt you.

I want to pick up the phone
I still remember your number
I look for you in the night
All alone in the sky.

Your heart still beats somewhere in this twisted beautiful world
Your feet still walk streets they are lucky to be under you
Flowers still turn to the shining of your eyes
Stars still burn in the midnight blue of your mind.
Track Name: Really Human
Cold wind come back!
I need your kisses I need your soft attack.
I saw your shadow in the treetops
I looked for you all night in a matchbox.

I’ve got a rope tied around my whole body
It keeps me on my toes it keeps me half an inch away from
Letting anybody know…

I went out last night to the masquerade
Loaded my six-gun and put on my pokerface.
The radio was on in the back of my mind,
A distant fuzz a nursery rhyme.

I want to feel you!
I want to be with you!
I want know you
Everywhere!
I move in circles around the moment
Where there is something human.
Something really Human!
