about

Glassmen Madison, Wisconsin

Glassmen is experimental indie rock with guitar, organ pedals, drums, and vibrato. The sound, sometimes jarring, is fragile, sharp, reflective, and distorting—like glass.

Track Name: Stand Your Ground
oh wait, stand your ground
to the grime and gruel all 'round
hold hands, say: we will live, stay

your back to mine
the stakes come in flying

welcome to...
welcome to...

you think this is home
i think this is
you think this will stay
you think this?

a weighted log is all we'll need then

you think this is home?
i think this is
you think this will stay?
i think this
you think this is home?
i think this is

Track Name: Are You Well Yet?
noone's here
noone hears
this is safe
this is safe

they're saying all well, all well?
when they say all well,
they have fences
noone gave me
eyesight, they will
all well? not yet
oh look now
well here we are in line

thinking
where we'll stay and
what if we

are awol, awol
gets us all yet
gets us while we're turning our heads
on this rock
no, not well yet
well in head?
oh we're in line

The ringing of God's old man that he ain't well yet.
I wouldn't want that, no.
Track Name: My Soul
my soul
he lied
my soul
he lies
he lied
he lies

I'm sorry my heart's failing on
the thought that I'm a bright sun,
so hard though to be here
when many are not.

so say I'm wrong
well say I'm wrong
about

he lies
he lies

and so you may find out
I am suffering so
what will help me through
it all, it all haya, better

my soul

I don't know this, I don't
Track Name: Land
We're almost there
I think I see
The water ends
Is that land?
land

I've wanted for so long
to see a hand, a hand.
Can it really come from land
land?

hand

dadada

But that wasn't it,
not yet
(a hand, a hand)
Can you tell if
we've hit land
land?

hand
land

Maybe we've earned it, been looking so hard for it.
(How do you earn it? It's just the way it is, uh huh)
Maybe we deserve it, we suffered so much for it.
(How do you deserve it? It's just the way it is, uh huh)
