about

Amidst continuing quarantine we remotely recorded a song that laments our fading art of conversation.

This first crEEps & friends collaboration features Madeline Smith (Pure Intruders, Our Fathers) on vocals.

lyrics

i saw the light of a thousand screens
i saw us closing our minds
i saw a thousand empty seats
i saw us falling behind

we have all gone blind we have all gone blind

close your eyes
come on come on remember
long lost friends (now)
i miss the conversation
close your eyes
come on come on remember
long lost friends
i miss the conversation

saw some kids without enough to eat
their parents standing in line
selling screens cheaper than cheap
the doors open at nine
there’s a shadow of a stretching hand
reaching into your heads
you weren’t paying attention man
you were laughing all by yourself

we have all gone blind we have all gone blind
