I'm the same as I ever was: 
fixin' to change. 
Like the real thing was happening 
just out of frame. 

I could fool myself into 
laughing out loud at the pain. 
I can hardly wait for the 
rest of my life to begin. 

We're running into circles, 
following the line. 
We're running into circles, 
following the line. 
If I could ever focus, 
color in the lines. 
We're running into circles, 
running out of time. 

Out of sight, 
out of my mind. 
I'm afraid of heights -- 
I forget that. 
We're falling into love. 
She's swimming in my head, 
unafraid of death -- 
Don't forget that. 

Oh, I won't. 
(You will.) 

We're running into circles; 
following the line. 
We're running into circles; 
following the line. 
If I could ever focus, 
color in the lines... 
We're running into circles, 
running out of time.

Bitter Calm is a band whose beginning is marked by endings.

Following the death of his father, the end of a relationship, and the dissolution of the band Velouria all in a month’s time, Michael Harp’s life was irreversibly shifted and stripped of all familiarity at the age of 19.

The outpouring of music that followed sought to document this new reality, while searching far into his family’s past for answers to questions he never had the opportunity to ask.

Bitter Calm is what comes next, with the help of violinist Meg Ford, members from Velouria, a box full of video tapes, and a hand-me-down watch that doesn’t tell the time. They write loud, slow songs about love and death, and they’ve never had so much fun.
