Epic art rockers The Vital Might releases its 3rd full-length album, The Eclipse, exclusively through Bandcamp on Tuesday, December 11, 2012.


Two hours past, 2 miles past
Breathing, staying, I was calm
But it continued and the clowns complained
My efforts were collapsed in vain

I tried to calm my sleep but I just can’t
I woke you three times with my skin slick
I thrash when I switch sides to feel the fan
But my patience and my breath just won’t stick

Your patience is an inspiration, you never complain
Massaging my logistics, my love, and my brain
Silently assisting and not clamoring for credit
When my fuse is shortened you tell me not fret it

We both try to follow this path
A mindful way is well within my grasp
I try to be as patient as I can
I try to make myself a better man

Once I’m able to embrace this loss
We can marvel at how our paths have crossed
And now my way is not only mine
The mazes and clearings, we’ll trek them in time

You try to calm my sleep and I know that you can
We’ll wake and assume our perfectly fit spot
I’ll ask you what you think without moving my mouth
Your hand will tighten and you’ll make the tiniest sound


from The Eclipse, released December 11, 2012
