Glass breaks glass the shards slice me it's a desperate plot it didn't set me free Glass breaks glass I didn't wanna leave but inside I'm guided by this disbelief To make it sting more let it cut you slow slide it back and forth It would not happen if you listen to me this is the reaction  again and again Blood drips out on contact liquid I can't stand in its place Sweat flowing backwards mixes with the metal and it's bitter to taste cuts my skin the shards let liquid flow stick it right back in and rip it out won't break until I can't take anymore  won't break until I can't take anymore won't break until I can't take anymore won't break until I can't take anymore Glass Falling So Far Glass Drops into my Glass Glistening Red Shards

Lightweight 04:49
Weight's gone now Lightweight So take me down Yourself Light's in you I cannot back up  Now that I've gone Through the ropes Of a love so cold Lights fall dark I'm awake Let's stay out They're gone I swear to God It seems Dark here Stay close Don't go far

let's go in stayed back enough it's our time to go down why yes I need to believe that I could still think there was enough to leave a taste in my mouth there's no way to get it out thirst fill the air with peppermint done clear away now nights run  downhill these skies can feel endless back out stay away pick up the slack now that i've let go it's never enough tonight hey now we've made it let's split a pack of gum this taste of peppermint gets all on our tongues i absolutely  in the here and now back out stay away pick up the slack now that i've let go

Stuck 03:38
My heart had stopped My head got stuck My whole life stuck My whole mind stuck I will not bleed I've failed my needs I can't say please You won't release Oh Don't envy you Don't envy you Don't envy you I'm pulling out Ow Stuck now You will not act Expect how I Said My heart had stopped My whole life stuck My whole mind stuck I can't climb up I failed my needs When I said please The whole thing came down on me Oh Why state a need  No

Dark Stain On the soul Feel the pain Or let it go If I don't Succeed Will I Rise Above? Don't run I'll leave Before this runs Out Inside me Is my heart It defies The wisdom of those who can see who got me out I'm not going to regret now Simply Not for you I'll be The reason you Simply Feel what's true Can't bleed Any more than I do Dark stain On the soul Feel the pain Or let it go If I don't Succeed Will I Rise Above? Don't run I'll leave before this runs out

Open Up 04:58
Another night with no sleep But I guess that's nothing new Still at the same time Can't get away from you Still at the same time I still--I can't ignore The loss That hangs above Still at the same time I still--I can't ignore The walls that have built up But it's gone Body's sway while You're insecure I'm hanging on Light signal Light's out But it's so light your signal I will not reach your words Once inside now without I mean no harm Why haven't you laid out Body's sway while Lights go down

Inside us all Never ever let alone One eye packed with salt Produces weight you can't absolve ah ah ah ah But deceit follow's you Imprint to all of you They don't call on you Will this one back down on you They find love follow you They kind of bother you Will this one back down on you ah Take them all I can see the sky So far and away far as they go to guide our way the same sky follow's you the same sky will follow you ah the same sky the same sky follow's you follow's you follow's you follow's you the same sky will follow you it's all done waiting to wake back up be not a friend be not afraid be not a friend be not afraid be not a friend be not afraid be not a friend be not afraid be not a friend be not afraid be not a friend be not afraid come again come again come again come again come again come again

about

That Which Is Not Said is an album about learning to accept oneself within, and accept the reality of all that comes from without. It’s an eponymous abstract exposition on navigating the realms of intimacy that the living world inevitably unveils and their equally inevitable fallout, the panic of abandonment and the loss of desire, and dragging oneself back up the hill once the lonely valleys lose their allure. Written and recorded over the course of two years in TWINS home studio in Atlanta with various synths, samplers, drum machines, and his very own flesh-and-muscle vocals, That Which Is Not Said is the result of countless studio sessions and experiments that were refined and distilled into the songs presented here, rigorously worked out through live performances and repeated critical overhaul. The material was all conceived more or less the same way: a mood or feeling would be channeled through whatever machines were plugged in at the time and eventually a foundation would be developed upon which a loose structure would be improvised. Experimenting and throwing around vocals came next, making up phrases and lyrics on the fly until something clicked and a pathway cleared through the fog and mist. 

TWINS (the acronym from which the album derives its title, if one’s curious about the order of origin) is the mutant machine-pop project of Atlantan producer, label operator, and all-around aesthete-visionary Matt Weiner. Having spent the better part of a decade reveling in a moody murk that intersects seductive synth-pop with Featureless Ghost and grotesque industrial-dance grooves in his own right as TWINS, Weiner has more than proved his sincerely sinister and auspiciously artful finesse of synth-based music. Operating from his home studio, arrayed with various tools of the trade, Weiner tempers his subtle scourges of sound with an unending sense of bold exploration, processing tracks of pulse-heavy aural catharsis. When performing these songs live, he brings an array of hardware to back up his flooring vocal performances, using his entire being to work the audience into a frenzied trance. When not making music as TWINS, Weiner also runs the CGI Records label and co-runs the DKA label, between the two releasing music from Boy Harsher, Profligate, Alex Falk, High-Functioning Flesh, VALIS, Scott Fraser, Beau Wanzer, Featureless Ghost, Golden Donna, and more. Weiner also performs in the duo Pyramid Club with Chris Daresta, and produces music in the studio with Stefan Ringer as SM42 and with the esteemed CH Rom as Wo.
