Jakob Bellamy Tacoma Night Terror might be a late edition to a sound that's been explored pretty thoroughly, but songs like Bold, I Hate My Body, and Rainin' Again are seemingly impossible to tire of. Admittedly, my introduction to TNT came from trying to fill an appetite for more Jonathan Rado, but that shouldn't mean she's bound to the shadows. Indeed, when she prophesies "Baby, I'll be more famous than you" on Bold—assuming she's referencing Rado—she may just be right. Favorite track: I Hate My Body.

Track Name: Ladies Man
he rarely worries
he rarely calls his family
and the ladies, fine ladies, well
he chases them like apollo chasin' daphne
oh why doesn't he ever chase me
have i always been a tree?
with a surplus
of devotion
for a man who's never made a motion
toward me
he ignores me
what good is all my crying for
he's always searchin'
for someone
to love him
like a television actress
or an heiress
someone famous
like a princess who's lived in paris
but has really gotta say the city's lost its charm for her lately
Track Name: Maddy
maddy doesn't want your love and she doesn't want mine
her man's been missing a long time
he's just like a silk rose in her mind
the years go by and yet he never gets any older
like a bandit, he steals his time
like a child, she thinks she'll be safe on his shoulders

all that once was is no longer but she tries
to stall the night and keep on dreaming till he arrives
only in her dreams does he arrive
only in her dreams does he really love her

how long will you wait for your man
oh Maddy, how long will you wait for your man
is it a question of keeping things the way you planned them
oh Maddy, how long will you wait for your man

hands cupped in the rain
waiting for all you need to be given
Maddy, I know you're afraid of wasting time
but you don't need to make your life a prison

all that once was is no longer but she tries
to stall the night and keep on dreaming till he arrives
only in her dreams does he arrive
only in her dreams does he really love her

how long will you wait for your man
oh Maddy, how long will you wait for your man
is it a question of keeping things the way you planned them
oh Maddy, how long will you wait for your man

how long will you wait for your man
oh Maddy, how long will you wait for your man
is it a question of keeping things the way you planned them
oh Maddy, how long will you wait
Track Name: Darlin'
i talked myself into a tailspin again
tryin' to make somethin' never meant to happen
happen
i wasted water again
this is a drought, my love
and i used you up
this is a drought, my love
and i used you up
i'm not proud of what i chose to do, darling
what i allowed myself to use of you, darling
upon looking back i can see how selfish i had been
i loved you wastefully, darling

i tricked myself into disbelievin'
tellin' myself nothing too hard to imagine could ever happen
i wasted water again
this is a drought, my love
and i used you up
this is a drought, my love
and i used you up
i'm not proud of what i chose to do, darling
what i allowed myself to use of you, darling
upon looking back i can see how selfish i had been
i loved you wastefully, darling
i loved you wastefully
Track Name: Tacoma Night Terror
the tide announces resignation early
little pieces in the sand i swore i'd never see again
when the water makes his move and leaves me thirsty
i'll do everything i can to reel my bottles in

dry spell
must travel
the careful planning quickly comes unravelled
sitting high up
in my saddle
surrounded by the callousness of gravel
it's more than i can handle
can you help me handle

where should i go
which direction
is most promising
you promised me protection
be it a road
or a question
i'm always hoping for divine intervention
i learned my lesson
in tacoma
night terror
i wanna go home

i take myself to task, i work in earnest
but everything i make takes but a minute to decay
more doubt than benefit, i fled the circus
and i almost got away, but something scared me back again

nighttime
intrusions
seems like my dreams and destiny are in collusion
i try to wake up
but nothin' doin'
it's hard to navigate in my confusion
has everything thus far been an illusion

where should i go
which direction
is most promising
you promised me protection
be it a road
or a question
i'm always hoping for divine intervention
i learned my lesson
in tacoma
night terror
i wanna go home
Track Name: Rainin' Again
it's raining again
i don't wanna go outside
i don't wanna to wear a hat
the one I have's made of wool & it bothers my eyes
it's raining again
maybe i'll jut stay in bed
maybe i'll just stay inside

It's morning again
i don't wanna to pick up my head
i hardly slept at all last night
i tossed and I turned and my neck is so tight
it's morning again
is that my last lorazepam
is that clock really right

(please don't live without me, please don't live without me, i only dream of lost things)

just missed you again
i've been calling since I don't know when
all I wanted to say was hi
guess I'll try another time
another time
some sunny time
it's raining again
Track Name: The Trip (Moving Target)
i thought you were a trip worth takin'
entranced by your unsympathetic view
but i missed the movin' target
i missed the movin' target
i took too long to remember what to do
and i wished on several stars that said they know you

i waited for you in arkadia
convinced i'd find you playin' pan's flute
but i missed the movin' target
i missed the movin' target
i took too long to remember that i don't owe you

well you showed up late and only stayed one afternoon
and i'd cut you a break, but mercy doesn't look that good on you

and you've slicked too many sailors
you've tricked too many travelers
you've kissed too many strangers
you've skipped too many chapters
you've picked this life of danger
you picked this life of danger
you picked this life

and if i'd known what i have only just found
i'd have stayed away
and that's where
i'm stayin' now
Track Name: I Hate My Body
i wake up tired
my eyes feel like chestnuts on the fire
my back is all busted up
my BPM's way up
my shit is achin'
my body's breakin'
am I not too young
to need replacement?
i have a displaced rib
and bruxism
i stay out of the sun
and think about melanomas a ton
though my chances of developing one
are slim to none
due to my olive complexion
try telling that to my anxiety and depression

i hate my body, baby
but i don't want to die, my baby
i hate my body, baby
but i don't want to die
