about

What happens when you don't get what you truly want? It begins with an American narrator arrogantly boasting of his penchant for entertaining himself, and ends halfway around the world as a Grecian monk, tortured by vow of silence and a lifetime of loneliness, is drawn to a mountain-top suicide.

"It's hard to ignore that The Quelle Source's self-titled EP is full of pretty, earnest indie pop without coming off as sounding like really cheesy singer-songwriter crap." - The Deli Magazine Philadelphia

Track Name: The Painters
The signal-less drivers are so content
with their named napkins
and their stolen paper bag hearts

They tie their hands behind their back
That's the name for them:
The Painters of the Green Trees

But I'll sit
in the glare
of the sun, drunk
Burying
the bones my grandfather took
And everytime I don't
give birth
I put my head out the window
'Cause that's another day that he's alive
and another day that I don't have to die

And you're right
You're so right
God forbid an empty chair
But even if you hollowed out
the backseats of the broken cars
there's still room enough for me on the floor

So I'll sit
in the glare
of the sun, drunk
Burying
the bones my grandfather took
And everytime I don't
give birth
I put my head out the window
'Cause that's another day that he's alive
and another day that I don't have to die
Track Name: Hello Over
Hello over
Hello over
Hello over
Hello over

Tearing out
the grass
that's been crawling
on my back

Hello over
hello over
hello over
Hello over

And you know what I said
And that I-, or what I meant
This is not what you needed
I just want distortion

Hello
Hello
(Hello) Come on, come on,
it's not like there's anyone else, come on
(Hello) Come on, come on,
I put in my time and all

How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you

(Hello) Come on, come on,
it's not like there's anyone else, come on
(Hello) Come on, come on,
I put in my time and all

How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you not know
How could you not...
Track Name: Onna's Lullaby
Onna
How do you feel tonight?
Do you think that it would be alright?

And I'm sure I know the answer you will say
I just want to see your face at the break of day

So I can say
Onna
How do you feel tonight?
Are we gonna have to get into a fight?

If I see your arm around another guy
You can count on me to lose my troubled mind

I'll still say
Onna
How does it feel tonight
to be at the center of all of my life?
Track Name: Truth
There is no truth in what I say
since you've been taken far away
If only you had thought to stay

We remain as we were
and so perfectly sure
that we need nothing else in the world

There is no truth in what I say
Though I still need you in some way
The way you left, it's not okay

Now my heart's in my throat
And I'm ready to go
And I can't live without anymore
Track Name: The Dependable Ones
I can see you
and what you're doing
and I know that it's a lie

Little words to
push you forward
Cut off the ears of the occupier

So we don't start
Then we don't stop

It won't be long now
until the firemen come
to snuff us out, because
we are the Dependable Ones

So if feeling gets you off
and you can't stand to be alone,
you can always call us
But now we won't pick up
We have had enough
I won't be tied to your open door

So we don't start
Then we don't stop

It won't be long now
until the firemen come
to snuff us out, because
we are the Dependable Ones

And I will make you a sign
Light it up
Pour it out
And that way
no one
will be confused
at where they stand
with you

But if we don't start
Then we won't stop

It won't be long now
until the firemen come
to snuff us out, because
we are the Dependable Ones
We are, we are
The Dependable Ones

So help yourself quick
'Cause I'm not going to anymore
Track Name: Caloyer
Oh no
I can't help but feeling all left out
And here it comes
the ship that carries all my ghost nights off

Off
Off

Not now
No, no, the ceiling it can't go
Don't talk
I won't speak but surely I will know

I'll still
know
Know

Flying 'round
Flying in and kicking my head out
Tell me
what have I got swimming inside me

I've gone
i've gone and lost the inside of me
I don't
I don't want to throw up both my hands
But I am learning too
slow
Slow

So empty the net
and see what's the catch
