about

Einer Sie Gern narrates a commonly human journey from obscurity of self from distorted guidance & entrapment to the endless empowerment of confidence & awareness. ¶ Taylor's loungey croons & decimated guitars gracefully mingle alongside EvE's eastern harmonies & electric vibraphones, all within soundscapes ranging from ambient washes to industrial walls according to the sentient emotion of each song. As exclusive album artwork creator, EvE's encaustic beeswax paintings embody the spirit of each song as well as the album as a whole.

Track Name: Pop
Summo possit singulis sit et
at errem ridens commodo vis
cum ei quem iuvaret petentium.
Pro an nostrum inciderint,
no decore libris consetetur quo.
Mea dico adhuc regione an,
vel ut noluisse salutatus contentiones.

Doctus theophrastus signiferumque ea his.
Sit tantas vocent consetetur ei,
ex mea erat dolore consulatu,
in elitr convenire consequuntur sed.

Graece veritus oportere mea ex.
Ea voluptaria appellantur per,
at eam ullum perpetua sententiae,
id est discere moderatius.
Te epicuri luptatum mel.
No mazim senserit quo,
cu etiam nostro usu.
Track Name: Stranger
Stranger, stay that way.
Strangely, I only wanted
dangerous & delicious
regrets to leave me haunted.

For the last time I need to forget you
ever moved a single part of me.
Just remember, burn up all our memories
and forget there ever was a we.

Danger, keep away.
We'll lose momentum out there.
Persist in being our best
unlike to one another.

Stranger, I care for ones not there.
Track Name: Snow
Snow falls, everything does, lost and center.

Snow's nowhere to be found in our winter.

Feel it all melt away, stop the heat.



No matter what choice we had in it, it isn't real.
No matter what faith we stored in it, it isn't worth it anymore.

Not sleeping, it isn't real.
Just dreaming, could it be real?


We end, everything does, part of growing.
Prosper, burn strong then fade, 
I've stopped glowing.
Track Name: Damage
Please believe these things that I conceive.
They're not for you, just for me. You do not concern me.
Please just leave the memories of we.
What might have been & never could have ever been complete.

All that I've told you, you already know.
And if you heard me, then why can't you go?
Why must you prod at what we only know?
Carry on for me, relentlessly so.
Please move on, and stay gone.

Please relieve yourself of all that grief.
You will be fine some other time, just feel out your defeat.
Please just see past all your disbelief.
Just close your eyes & fall upon those wings kept underneath.
Track Name: Rid of Me
Whatcha gonna do when I never say to you
what I'm gonna do even after all of you
knew I'd never stay? (You would never anyway.)
Wish I wasn't like Everything that I Grew to hate in you.

I don't wanna say I'll stick around for you.
I just want to keep you wanting me.
There was never need for me to say to you
anything like I'd get rid of me.

How's it gonna feel when you see me gone is real?
Could you really face quitting quite the chase, given time to heal?
We can always say it was you that went away.
Wish I didn't strike Everything that I Never did for you.
Track Name: Me Again
Dunno why we're stuck in this rut.
Maybe cause we feel our door is never shut.

Why do I see you in me again?
Because we're slipping backwards.
Why don't we pretend this is the end?
Because we're falling forwards.
Not quite sure just how'll be alone this time.

Dunno what you think you're doing
putting someone else in my shoes.
You think that will make me love you?
Now you've got another one to lose.

(Don't see what all this'll do for us this time.)
Maybe nothing. In fact, I'm sure that you mean
nothing to me again. This time's the end.

(Dunno what you think you're doing
putting someone else in my shoes.)

They don't belong, like I ever did.
Good luck chasing that one.
Dunno what I did this time to get
you not giving up on me again...

...When I gave up on you again,
so you shouldn't listen to me again.
Track Name: Screams
I am so happy to see what you have done without me.
Nothing to do with what made you beautiful way before
he came & trashed you all up. None of it seems to add up.
Maybe I'm not quite as I thought beautiful enough for

You to drag around, quarantined & bound.
He can have what I had, screams that make no sound.
Miss me all you want. You can have carte blanche
over him, good riddance to you having your shot.

Look at him get to do everything I used to.
He doesn't like every surprise happening because of...
You know what it's like to see all of this because of me?
Twisting insides, feel more alive, all because I needed

You to drag around, quarantined & bound.
He can have what I had, screams that make no sound.
Miss me all you want. You can have carte blanche
over him, good riddance to you having your shot.

[Screams that make no sound:]
Here is my tongue. Hope you have fun
knowing you've run out everyone.
I will die young, 'less you are done

Letting go & back again with me.
(Screams of thought that always haunt you)
Pick a side & let us both be free.
(Freedom from these dreams about you)
Cross the line too many times for
me to care & be scared I'll never hear your screams of fear for me.
Track Name: Can't Stop
Draw me into you, leading me on through,
where you can have me. (Dreams must be lovely.)

Can't stop loving who I hate the most.
Can't stop wanting who I hurt so much.
Can't stop hating who you love the most.
Can't stop hurting who you want.

All is against you. Want me to test you?
Results have come in. We're both addicted.
Track Name: I Can't See You
I can't see you, you can't know me.
I will be you if there's no me.
This is what we end up doing
if I still see you inside me.

I can't see you, you can't know me.
I will be you when there's no me.
This is what we both are doing
when I still feel you inside me.

I can't see you, you can't know me.
I cannot see you beside me.

I can't see you and me side by side anymore.
