Have you seen the light? It’s dawning on you Do you know what it’s like To hate things because you’re scared they’ll hate you? That’s your God-given right Whatever that means, you’ll do what you want to do But it isn’t out of spite If I offer you a word or two When you say it feels paralyzing To think that you might be the one who’s wrong Never realizing Until the cold eyes of judgment fall on you So tenderly prizing All the things you’re scared they’re going to take away from you All because they can’t read your mind Even though you try to be kind So you’d think it’d be easier than it is Said you had a lot to think of, well you know You’re just the same as me Sometimes I wish you could read my mind Then you’d see what I mean. . .

I have always known you care Maybe it doesn’t seem like it The leaves are turning in the air And you know I hate to lose, I can’t stand to win Sometimes I see things that aren’t there Draw back and shut my feelings in Another disappointed stare As I project the judgment But my friend you’ve known me for a long time You’ve seen my best and worst a hundred times And when there’s nothing you can do To change my mind You’re always patient, you know I’m not blind I’ll realize Oh yeah, you can count on me

In their first recordings released since the critically acclaimed long-player I'm Bad Now, Haligonian heroes Nap Eyes sail an autumnal wind of regret and longing. "Have You Seen the Light" exposes an inscape of illumination and revelation all too rare today. Hate begets hate, and light begets light. Too Bad?

Have you seen the light?
It’s dawning on you
Do you know what it’s like
To hate things because you’re scared they’ll hate you?

"I've Always Known You Care" evinces the affections we do not reveal, as the fall leaves fall, with echoes of Hackamore Brick in the spindly guitar lines. Nigel ends the song with a promise for the future: "Oh yeah, you can count on me."

I have always known you care
Maybe it doesn’t seem like it
The leaves are turning in the air
And you know I hate to lose,
I can’t stand to win

Danika Vandersteen once again made the arresting cover art.

Nap Eyes joins Cloud Nothings on a brief Western tour, beginning November 2, 2018.
