about

Pacific Mean Time Portland, Oregon

Pacific Mean Time’s debut album finds the Portland band picking up where their former indie power pop project, Little Beirut, left off. The band’s knack for warm, catchy melodies remains intact, but their new incarnation boasts a lusher, more organic sound, even with electronic additives. ... more

Track Name: Blindfolds
baby’s all still and hard to find
so I keep turning on the lights
I’m sure she’s found some place to hide
just looking for what feels alright

I bet I make it if I close my eyes
the room’s spinning slow
the thought of leaving never crossed my mind
but it’s time to go

November minds might best be left alone
those shooting starless skies you’ve always known

baby’s all still and hard to find
so I keep turning on the lights
I’m sure she’s found some place to hide
just looking for what feels alright

I bet I make it if I close my eyes
the room’s spinning slow
the thought of leaving never crossed my mind
but it’s time to go
Track Name: Minutes to Midnight
so when is a smile just a smile?
and when is a sigh just a sigh,
just an aching of the boredom?

what if we live our whole life
in the minutes to midnight?

my mind keeps changing
it's not worth explaining
no words will come close
got no use for it
I think I’ll ignore it
my favorite song is on
seems like a sign
that I shouldn’t say this
cause you’ll think I’m crazy
and I might be wrong
but before it’s gone
we can make this right

what if we live our whole life
in the minutes to midnight?

it's just a thin little love, a storm in my head
you found it, and you wait for it
cause you never know
Track Name: New Blood
your skeleton my wooden eye
they’re all laid out no questions why
caught shooting fingers off the chandelier
all your good excuses useless here

you hit him once, hit him on the lips
and he’s the lucky one
yeah you hit again, hit him with that kiss
and he’s the lucky one (who won’t remember this)

my eyes always adjusting to the dark
and the mind is always speeding up the heart
on the way to paperback mistakes
holidays and waking up too late

nobody saw where you went
new blood is blowing in
it’s all necessary wind
Track Name: A Simple Thing
come on mama, a little drama
I know it hurts ya, it always will
I know you're lonely, will you tell me
am I only a sleeping pill?
I know I keep you in the dark
but you're still my favorite part
of the artificial art

I could never make it up, making up is always rough
but it seems like all we do
and every single time get farther from the truth
always running circles right back into you
And then I ran back into you

fingertips….touch my lips.
well that all sounds like fun
let's figure out a simple thing to say to everyone
I've always done my part
to try and stay out of the way
of the artificial art

I could never make it up, making up is always rough
but it seems like all we do
and every single time get farther from the truth
always running circles right back into you
I'm gonna make my way
Gonna make my way up
cause I don’t wanna go home
Track Name: Bo Derek
seems like the perfect day
for losing my mind
for falling out of touch
to see what I find
I feel my senses turn
they’re burning so bright

gotta get outside and get some air

must be a perfect way
to tie us up with strings
I’ll save my restless words
I’m doing it right

gotta get outside and get some air

there’s something in my heart
that’s made it this far
and I’m not throwing that away
letters home from on the road
and your pretty pictures whenever I’m alone
Track Name: Straight Shot (Towards the Sun)
the latest dream from far away
the wait and see
radiates

it might matter to me

right above me
no one's safe from what I want
thinking of me
am I safe from what I want?
tell me baby
am I the first one to let go?

right above me
no one's safe from what I want
thinking of me
am I safe from what I want?
such a lovely view
with a straight shot towards the sun
still thinking of me
you're not safe from what I want
tell me baby
am I the first one to let go...
on the second it explodes?

this is not the world for you
but it's the one i choose
Track Name: Perfect Rose
goldhawk
victory wind
fistful of spite
secret life
there’s no two alike

the perfect rose
calendar lows
feel it as we go
the perfect rose
version that we know
feel it as we go
(only we know)

north star?
no, it’s Jupiter
guess you’ll be my guide tonight
secret life
There’s no two alike
Track Name: How to Cheat Death
climb aboard the emergency
it’s a wreck on the highest sea
and it’s fine
might just be unwise to let it show

and I know what I know
and we go wherever we want to go
shield your eyes from the lights
ain’t got time for what you done,
it’s only in what we do

and we’re making rounds with the bottle
we’re gonna fill it up
with lightning found inside us
and we can’t stop now
so draw the shades let’s let it out

hit the floor, the emergency
it’s a gas! we should charge a fee
so don’t’mind, cuz this one’s on me
it’s all you’ll need one…two…three…
Track Name: White Blackbird
I’m a slave to the artist
she’s a slave to her art
most of us never notice
we know it all by heart

always loved seeing double
the double life’s twice as fun
wrapping my dreams in trouble
even the best ones

bought a white blackbird
put it on my windowsill
bought a white blackbird
this one won’t fly away
like I know you will

flattery it gets me nowhere
and money won’t buy you love
we won’t know till we go there
to the place where we came from
Track Name: Last Song on the Record
another wide awake and barely there
so far away from everyone

and I don’t care how, I need to be there now
