    'If you are to bloom' I'd like to see us together I'd like to lay my head low I need to lean on a soft one And bring the spin of the world to a halt And the coil sleeps And you've been gathering angels And fading further each day, I love you right now as I never Remember my face as it quietly you make your rain. Those words are so meaningful so me. It reminds of me something sad but it helps me find peace within it. My girlfriend miscarried and and we both lost our baby that day. throwing away all the baby clothes we had bought, discarding the names we had picked out. One name in particular did stand out to me though.. she would've been named Hailey. I'll always love my little girl no matter what, daddy miss' you. Rest in peace my unforgotten angel. I promise we will meet someday.

    Best use of the HM-2 outside of swedeath. Criminally underrated band. Masters of their craft and wizards of roaring towers of distorted beauty.
