Please be diaphanous. I only wanna be the half of us. Our fifth star has just begun. We were spending our money. We were having fun. Hey now I know not enough. I was caught up in the wrong stuff. Yeah I know not enough. I was caught up in the wrong stuff. But I have to laugh. So it was a rough night. It IS Montréal. Did I win you over? Yeah it was a rough night with every sin. Did I win you over? Hey, I know it's not enough. I get caught up in the wrong stuff. Physical is the road. I get caught up in the wrong stuff. And I have to laugh. I get a bad wrap. And I have to laugh. Say it now: "not enough" I get caught up in the wrong stuff.

...we won't talk about the ending I look to you You look my way I look to you On that day you're all I feel. When you're shaking and i've been right. You say you wanna pass me by, and I need it like it was time I look to you you look my way. They won't say about the ending. Feel the fire on my feet... Away...

Well, it suits you like it's for you It suits you like a sign And it fits you like a fortune Oh, what's mine? And I can't do this without you. But I can't do this with you. And I lead you like I'm for you. Open-eyed. I look to you you look my way. They're not seeing what your sending. Bad the sun it was in days. It was a lot like that. Baby, like it wasn't fire that I started with my eyes. That was just a moving line whenever love moved in. It suits you like a call-out. I warned you under warm light. From anyone to anyone, from anyone to anyone, this was your last fantasy. It tricks you, yeah, it's wild life. It warms you in it's warm light.Turn around, turn around, turn around, turn around. This was your last fantasy.

Always come at me from a different angle.
 Make me think I don't understand 
 how i'm feeling  
'til the feeling that I get out of hand.
 Visible only til the furthest fountain.
 Acting like I never got scared.
 Would I feel it?  
I never wanna be ill-prepared.
 Always tired, I'm trying to get back something.
 Shit just got so real.
 I wanna ride.
 I wanna die on that field.
 Physical way of night-facing partner, eyes wide I let it go too soon.
 Now I feel it 
Sit with it while I wait by the moon 

 'Cause I'm not sleeping  
The weight of that weekend  
As long as I'm breathing 
 This is a prayer for love 

 Holy Water 
House of Pain
 Come through slaughter 
 to swim again.
 Holy Water.
 House of Pain.
 Wanna heal from slaughter 
 and swim again  

'cause I'm not sleeping. 
The weight of that weekend.
 As long as I'm dreaming
 This is a prayer for love.

 THIS IS A PRAYER FOR LOVE
 THIS IS A PRAYER FOR LOVE

 'cause I'm not sleeping

Was around tide At night you'd see it. Wasn't my fear. That is not there. It wasn't my fear 'Cause I dig deep. Why don't you? I dig deep Why don't you? It was a rager idle night now. Wouldn't look in. Wouldn't look into your eyes. I wanna feel. Understand. Why don't you? I dig deep. Why don't you? 'Cause I love in two stages There's the eyes There's the quarter drop Yeah, I love in two stages. I love in two Yeah, I love in two stages There's a kiss There's a quarter drop Would I lie? (Who's afraid, you?) It's around tide At night you'd see it It wasn't my fear It is not there It was never my fear 'Cause I dig deep Why don't you? 'Cause I love in two stages There's your eyes There's a quarter drop.

You see what defeats you the moment it meets you. You know what it's like, another sight, another sound. I need to feel you. Compelled to steal you away from someone who doesn't care if you're around. Don't say I don't feel the attraction. All I feel is the attraction. It's over, man. I feel it like an empty hand. The light that they'd find the night that they died. It's tough understanding the end. It's seems like they tried All that we tried. Soft understanding. Warm, open-handed. Don't say I don't feel the attraction All I feel is the attraction. It's over, man. I feel it like an empty hand. There's weights, ides, starts, stallings, and this sudden dark romance. I feel this light. You'll understand. I need to feel you. Compelled to steal you away from someone.

Send your lover on a run, have a cigarette, and call me back. Seems I'm having all the fun. I love it how you know my pain. In around I've been around the sad, and stopped to know you still Come on, tell me your psychotic thoughts. Calm you down you know I will. Night after night I'll be there. Yeah I'll be there night after night. You know I will. We come at it alone but we can't quite face it. Get lost in a dream now we can't escape it. Know this ice was once warm water. Now my baby she don't wanna know me Yeah my baby she don't wanna know me now. Night after night I'll be there. Yeah I'll be there night after night. I said I would.

I'm an addict. And I say this to myself. I'm your future lover. There's me. There's no one else. You need someone to care for. Hey, make that me. And I don't mind trouble. There's a static. I wanna see light getting far. Oh, get rid of the sound, and gimme something more like a beating heart. I need something to care for. Hey, make that me you're after. And I don't mind trouble 'Cause if the spirit won't come to me. I go to it. If the spirit won't come to me I go to it, I go to it. Let's take to this to the side stairs where you favoured me once. Ah, take my silhouette as self-light. Don't make it disappear I want it near- Something to care for- Hey, make that me you're after And I don't mind trouble

Sundown, you're magnificent. Cuss aloud in murderin snow Wet skin, it was all a win. Use the sound and then let it soak In around silent light. Sudden feel. It's the way it works. It's the way it was you like you like. If your mouth is a festival there's a song in the way you speak, but around town it's the weight of words 'cause i'm down in that sea. Every light made of stone. Weight of stone "You're just a wildcard" It's the weight of words It's the weight of words

Coulda rolled all night in this hot country. Take a deep breath and you reach out to me. To live my life, it'll always be. Take a deep breath, and you reach out to me. Light starts to fade. You wanna back down. Why's it feel so good to get to out? ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh Gonna live my life in this hot country. ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh Take a deep breath and you reach out to me. 'Cause a light starts to fade. You wanna back down. Why's it feel so good to get out? 'Cause a light starts to fade 'Cause a light starts to fade Baby, why you wanna live in the light? Fuck it, no problem, it's just it took so long to disappear. Inside love-light. Quiet, unlike this path i'm riding, these thoughts disappear. You don't understand, do you? Lately, take a look around I'm not here for them. I'm not gonna lie. Have I lost the feeling? What's wrong with me?

about

All 11 songs on Indistinct Conversations were written by Elizabeth Powell (vocals/guitar/keys), and share the hallmarks of the Land of Talk sound: her silvery vocals; masterful, at times cacophonous guitar playing; and a stream-of-conscious lyricism—here perhaps at her most emotionally vulnerable and honest. Powell produced and arranged the tracks together with her bandmates Mark “Bucky” Wheaton (drums/keys) and Christopher McCarron (bass), and the trio recorded the album in a studio built by McCarron in Wheaton’s apartment basement.

Indistinct Conversations follows 2017’s acclaimed Life After Youth—at the time Land of Talk’s first album in seven years. The release saw praise from Pitchfork, Paste, The AV Club, and NPR Music, among others, with its singles earning additional highlights from The FADER, NPR Music’s All Songs Considered, New York Magazine’s Vulture, Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, Bandcamp, WXPN, and more.
