The Old Maid / Coffee With Tom 7" features two tracks recorded just months before "This Couch is Long and Full of Friendship" intended for a split that was never meant to be. But now, the upbeat and melodic songs find themselves on this one-sided 7" with art by the band, and a screen-printed B-side all done by hand, carrying the passion of their true Midwestern roots.

"Sparkling guitar riffs and rough-around-the-edges are par for the course in a genre packed to capacity with bands, but Dylan Mattheisen and Matt Chevalier shout out some harrowing confessionals. The Midwestern emo revival was knocking on the door..." - Property of Zack

Track Name: Old Maid
someday we will figure this all out
(let's make a plan to meet again)
but as for now, i'll be stranded
on this dock with my thoughts
in a bundle of confusion
time took you so why won't time take me too?

like an arrow
out a window

it's been countless years since the start
of this sickness dwelling deep inside my heart
well it's safe to say it feels beautiful
affection at it's best
oh' when it dawns down
I swear to god I see you smiling
in the reflection
where the ripples in the water and the sun meet
will you please just me
how to handle myself
how to deal with everything

Track Name: Coffee With Tom
you drank coffee in college and I did the same
9 o' clock is when our session starts
the taste burns deep inside my tongue
newspaper articles are useless
we have each other
and to let you know Tom
you have refilled more than just my mug

a lost child at the playground
Mom's gone and there's no one left to play along
your imaginary best friends are all whose left to push you on the swing set
all my comfort is in the water
my bloodstream runs deep in our 10,000 lakes
but sadly i forgot how to swim.

my confidence has left my head
but i promise i'll get it back
it's just like a chameleon with my tail cut off
but i promise i'll get it back
bigger and stronger than ever before

someday I want to die
in your bed alone at night
counting sheep
hoping that they'll take me far from everything
hoping that they'll take me far from you and me
it's time for me to grow and to understand what life is
but i feel as if it's already to late

waking up when everything is everything you wanted waking up to be.

age 20 years young
i suddenly cry myself to sleep
(you have so many years ahead)
i know but if it weren't for you
i would be sleeping in the van with Bill
like a slumber party
just without the fun

first things first:
I will thank you everyday
right when i wake up
and i taste that sunset through the window.
when i do move on i will miss you
more than my Diamond Dallas Page action figurine

waking up when everything is everything you wanted waking up to be.
