about

Aware With You All is the first full-length album from the Ann Arbor, MI band Red Robe. Following their 2014 Party Favors EP, AWYA is an exploration into and beyond the ideas established throughout the previous release. It's the culmination of years of writing, and is an amalgamation of influences and styles ranging from sunny baroque pop to ear-shredding vistas of noise.

Copyright, Red Robe 2016.

Track Name: Whirlabou
i dream of you
even when i’m dead
you’re so recursive
lying prone
flowers o’er your head
it’s only human
to regret
all the things you’ve said
true half-believer
believe me, the spirit’s gone
it’s in bed
arise so early

whirlabou
be aware with you

i dream of you
please go for me, i’m first
but i’m the cursed
join our heritage
we’re not the worst
not what my nurse said
lying when you tailored
all your traps
your lips are pursed
the spirit’s gone
it’s sleeping in my bed
arise so early

whirlabou
be aware with you all

whirlabou
to be aware with you all
Track Name: Pale Nimbus
doze off to the wind
window grails and kin
honeydew melon
to rid of this chagrin

you’ll need my
pale nimbus
ili pika rides
pale nimbus

dozer of the seas
see, saw birds and bees
silian rail trees
to keep this company

you’ll need my
pale nimbus
slow loris rides
pale nimbus

but you can change
the place where we never met
omega eyes
never forget

wind of winds
elemental existence
but love is dry

world of worlds
behavior of the pearl
but love is mine

doze off to the wind
window grails and kin
doze off yeah, alright
can’t afford this morn last night
Track Name: Spanish Mystic
cool tides
break gem stones
in the earth
let lava in

cool tides
break gem stones
in the earth
let lava in

just a piece of land and it’s not the truth
made papers from the hand tell you what to do
no more indian summers, they have been so cruel
west-bound superseded all my avenues

cool tides
breaking me
in two
let lava in

cool tides
breaking me, me
in two
please won’t you let me in?

just a piece of land and it’s not the truth
fake papers from the hand tell you what to do
no more indian summers, they have been so cruel
west-bound superseded everything i knew
Track Name: Manipulat Worlds
your chin and neck
give away your age
long lines distort
a new minimum wage

intrepid bleeding
distasteful church
span out before you
manipulat worlds

can i ask you a question?
were you ever to care
my feelings are cloaked
beyond the hill

can i live without them?
these subterranean truths
i can't hide these feelings
sine labore nihil

your chin is bleeding
definitions fail
significant bleeding
sine labore nihil

your chin is bleeding
definitions fail
significant bleeding
sine wave of terror

distracted laughter gleaning my mind
spectacular platitudes i find
seen through the water from below
you're up and down, you're moving slow

can i ask you a question?
were you ever to care
my feelings are cloaked
beyond the hill

can i live without them?
these subterranean truths
i can't hide these feelings
sine labore nihil

distracted laughter gleaning my mind
spectacular platitudes i find
seen through the water from below
you're up and down, you're moving slow
Track Name: Nyembe
i can see
why you breathe
to keep your life
on the breeze

but you're not free
both you and me
are born into
systems of greed

try
for a change
break bonds
so strange
you'll find
me encased
in light
or steel cage

put on your shoes
conquer the day
take off your shoes
and hit the hay

repeat once more
a sense of dread
makes you feel alert
‘round 6pm

but try
for a change
break bonds
so strange
you'll find
me encased
in light
or steel cage
Track Name: Nux Vomica
the morning arrival
of your cold fate
a vivid memory
a fragile state
with

nux vomica
nux vomica

ice watering me
ice water melt
a blessed reunion
my former self
with

nux vomica
nux vomica
Track Name: Honroe
(instrumental)
Track Name: Kaleidoscopeater
sneak me through the moors and brush
psy-mage plates since first blush
ride in town for penny jar
one jar to the next, then back in car

kaleidoscope
eater
bottom
feeder

see me spirals of flowered light
the moors and brush turn me upside-right
euphoric guts, my hemlet’s turned
backwards thoughts already learned

kaleidoscope
eater
bottom
feeder
Track Name: Calvaire
swept away
by a magnificent explosion of love
you're alive
in an infinity particulate flood
flown away
although you won't be seeing any white dove
taxed instead
a common heritage and a common blood

vivid scene
with tattered carpet and erroneous halls
look until
you yell correctly with your shatter-proof calls
blame the boss
she didn't care to let you know either way
find me there
mistaken for different ordeals everyday

hush… the cavalries will treat you so well
hush… the cavalries will treat you so well
hush… the cavalries will treat you so well
hush… the cavalries…
Track Name: Tengu
teach me better truth
tell me better math so i can find
bird with camera
she watching on high above the sky
burn it in my mind
a pathway so hidden and left behind
reach me in my dreams
resonate ‘round the earth and upwards there

surfing on new star
tangential alignment is optimum
light will travel far to my
classic hard earned-role in the requiem
sing it all the time
sing it though it suits you to answer them
better say your prayers
but dreams will do the trick at minimum

i dream of you
your ecstacy
won’t finish it
finishes me
you institute
a policy
of jealousy
naivety
i walk the fence
i skirt the trees
abandoned numbers
follow me
there’s meaning there
for all to see
i’ll finish it
finishes me
Track Name: Life-Stained Paint
splitting spools
infinite
speck of light
your shining light

stretch the sands
the passage
of the time or
of my time

far among us
to be and behold
draw the boundaries
of crests no more
last song i hear
it's stuck in my head
is it the same one
i'll hear on my death bed?

black and white
ivy light
marble pools
your shining pools

dive me in
sink below
feeling good
you’re feeling good

far among us
to be and behold
draw the boundaries
of crests no more
last song i hear
it's stuck in my head
is it the same one
i'll hear on my death bed?
