riff-driven songs burst with crunchy-soulful harmonies, fuzzy guitars, and boisterous heart."
Zoe Madonna, The Boston Globe

Juliana Hatfield and Evan Dando...
Field Day has a gift for modern rock melodies." Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald

Track Name: Changeling
Deep sea diver
Man on wire
You’re on fire

Color faster
Paint the light
It’s alabaster

Make the moon rise
Make the stars shine

Super loaded
Secret coded
Rock and roller

You wanna meet at midnight
To chase the light
Miles to go, below, disaster

Make the moon rise
Make the stars shine

Changeling
Why did such a strange thing happen to you
The main thing
Hell or heaven you’re the same thing

Once you knew
The answers to
The riddles and the questions

It’s coming untrue
It’s a whole new you
There is no message, only some words

Make the moon rise
Make the stars shine

Changeling
Why did such a strange thing happen to you
The main thing
Hell or heaven you’re the same thing

In the future skies are gray
Never baby blue
It’s a mess
You’ll have to make do

When the king of everything has left the building
Then your love will sting
And girls sing
They sing, they sing

Make the moon rise
Make the stars shine
Make the moon rise
Better make the stars shine

Changeling
Strange thing
You’re a changeling
Such a strange thing
Track Name: Soft Target
The right suit
The right tie
The right house
The wrong guy
Never saw it coming

Tall drink
Bright lights
Big smile
Something’s not quite right

Draw back your arm, take your aim:
It’s a real soft target
Shoot for the heart, make your mark
on a real soft target
A killer drone, a civilian zone
It’s a real soft target
‘Til they come for you...

Move in
Move fast
The best things in life
do not last

It’s too late
Too bad
Long gone
past happy or sad

Turn it around, double it down:
It’s a real soft target
A safe bet, good as it gets
It’s a real soft target
The killing floor, you ask for more
of a real soft target
‘Til they come for you...

You’ve climbed until the air is thin:
You’re a real soft target
Stomach full, senses dulled:
You’re a real soft target
Something seems not quite right
You’re a real soft target
Track Name: Diving Bell
Hold my heart
Like you’re holding a bomb
You said “being lost
Is where I’m from”
Broken people …… [One step to the right]
Find broken people …… [Into the light]
I’m trying to surface …… [Three more to the door]
While you’re sinking deeper. …… [Into the darkness]

And I thought I knew you well
I was wrong…
You were never fine
Beneath the water line
In your diving bell

The weight of water …… [Purple fades to blue]
Carries you down ……[to white to see-thru]
I'll bring the rope …… [Nowhere is the only]
To drag you around. …… [place to be]
Close the capsule …… [Everything I have]
When it gets too much …… [is stolen]
You can see forever …… [Everything I have]
But never touch …… [is gone]

Every gambler has their tell
An indulgence they can’t sell
You should take the time
To float outside of your mind
In your diving bell
Track Name: The Hardest Part
Where does it come from, where does it go
What is the heart’s desire, nobody knows
You build a fire, rain begins to fall

The happiest thing you can be in the world is gonna make you the saddest
You touched the flame, now you’re going insane
It’s a new kind of pain, you’re getting very small

Love love love
Love love love

What is the power of two if it comes back to one
You have to carry it forward
Wish I could tell you it gets easier with time

Somebody loves you but he’s going away
nothing you say will make him stay
There’s a gaping, bloody hole in his heart
You can’t fill it

With love love love
Love love love

You want to move on, you want to stay still, it’s a bad dream
Look for the slipstream in the half light, in the gloaming
And let it carry you home

To love love love
Love love love

What is the power of two if it comes back to one
You have to carry it forward
Wish I could tell you it gets easier with time
The truth of the matter is complicated, and you cannot see it
That’s the hardest part, the hardest part

Love love love
Love love love
Track Name: X-Ray Heart
First you've got to take your tongue-tied heart
Tear it apart
(part of me is floating, flowing like a river)
Take it slow, take it fast, there's no map for
where you're now
(down to the ocean, out past the darkness)

Get going now:
it’s further than you think

You’ve got to find your own way home

They will shout they will laugh as you stumble on the path
They will be unkind
(i can feel the current, just below the surface)
The will use what they can both their words and their hands
Pay them no mind
(Mine is the kingdom, searching for the glory)

You always said you had an X-ray heart
It's time to show the hidden part

You're going to find your own way home
