Brian Roy and Ben Petty have been making music together for the better part of a decade (cranes are flying, Float the Witch) and teamed up with Russell Payan (The Wellfrogs) in the spring of 2014 to form Subtitles. They aim to make the soundtrack for the things left unsaid. ... more

Track Name: Saint
God laid me in a manger
God made me a saint
God laid me in a manger
God made me a saint
I suddenly become revealing
Alas I'm just a bastard son
God laid me in a manger
But I ain't no fucking chosen one

I wander east like a stranger
You sent me off to find my own
I wander east like a stranger
You sent me off with seed to sow
And I sowed from the dusk till' the morning
Alas I'm still a bastard son
God laid me in a manger
And I wander with my robes undone

Oh you looked so fine... Oh you looked so fine
Oh you looked divine
I want to take my time... I want to take my time
I want to make you mine... mine

I loiter the south for a danger
You sent me off to die some place
I loiter in hell for a danger
You sent me off to spite my face
But nothing burns me more than the feeling
That I'll always be your bastard son
God laid me in a manger
But I ain't no fucking chosen one

Oh you looked so fine... Oh you looked so fine
Oh you looked divine
I want to take my time... I want to take my time
I want to make you mine... mine

God laid me in a manger
God made me a saint
God laid me in a manger
God made me a saint
And I tried to find the proof of your treason but...
Who gives a fuck about the bastard son
God laid me in a manger
At least I'm not the only one
God laid me in a manger
At least I'm not the only one
Track Name: Stillborn
Come on wish me a way
Come on wish me a way... Stillborn
Come on wish me a way
Come on wish me a way like I know you should
So bury these hands in midnight oil
Bury these hands until you've got me good

And you got my lies... Wrapped around your tongue
But you got my eyes
Oh you got my eyes... Dig your nails right through

Come on wish me a way
Come on wish me a way... Stillborn
Come on wish me a way
Like I know you should
So bury these hands in midnight oil
Bury those hands until you got me good

And you got my lies... Wrapped around your tongue
But you got my eyes
Oh you got my eyes... Dig your nails right through

Come on wish me a way... Come on wish me a way
But you got my eyes
Oh you got my eyes... Dig your nails right through
Track Name: Bliss
So tie me to the roof again
You know that I don't play pretend
You can count on me to bow and bend... when you find me at a loss

And even though the sawder shows
I'll sink beneath the sound below
You'll never even hear me moan... when you nail me to the cross

Oh what is this?
My tender kiss
And my humble fist contained in bliss

And I don't want to lay you down
But you know that I can't bear the sound
So I'll pucker up and turn around... when you find me at a loss

And even though the sound remains
It never seems to sound the same
So tie me to that old refrain... when you nail me to the cross

Oh what is this?
My tender kiss
And my humble fist contained in bliss

Your heart is empty
Your soul is a farse
You wait for your love child
You wait for your newborn son with the windows down
And your hands came down
What a burning sound...
When your hands came down... when you fists came down
Was the silence in the crowd

Oh what is this?
My tender kiss
And my humble fist contained in bliss
