Coexist 03:22
Coexist What do want? Why are you keeping me inside? Though I’m an animal I am kept inside Just can’t seem to coexist with you Constant feelings that I can’t live without you You can’t afford me You can’t even make your rent You can’t afford me My cost is to resent Though you adore me, I’m not heaven-sent
2.
Human 03:39
Human Let’s make believe that we’re in love Just one day pretend we give a fuck Put on a nice dress, and I’ll throw on a tie Let’s drink in a restaurant until we feel alright And I don’t like you, and you don’t like me But let’s make it feel like we’re ordinary I know it’s stupid, but I feel excluded Just take me home and make me feel human Wait for me, until I feel complete There’s nothing wrong with me You think about somebody else As I unbutton with one hand There’s no one out there Within this I reside Let’s stay at this apartment until the day we die Sometimes you take me by surprise Maybe this could work Let’s pretend tonight But I don’t like you and you don’t like me But let’s make it feel like we’re ordinary I know it’s stupid, but I feel excluded Just take me home and make me feel human Wait for me, until I feel complete There’s nothing wrong with me

Chicago 04:21
Chicago I know the wound you hold inside Is far more vast than mine Pull out a map, and draw a line Then fold it up and leave it all behind I don’t wanna push you backwards Don’t wanna spend another summer Pretending like I’m where I want to be Stumbling around the Midwest Dissecting each and every interest Until we see transparently Think about you walking in Chicago by yourself at night I still worry all the time, I wish for you and hope that you’re alright Pour a little bit more but our glass has been full There’s nothing more we can give Now you’re in the cut with someone Keep picturing you on your back and Feeling like you never did with me Believing in divine concepts Thought you’d somehow make your way back Cause now I realize what I lost It eats me up that you’re content with him Think about you walking in Chicago by yourself at night I still worry all the time I wish for you and hope that

Nomadic 04:41
Nomadic My life is over the second I step in the water I never learned how to swim, so for that reason I flounder Never thought I’d be stranded in the ocean Always pictured soil beneath my feet You’re so naïve but you exist I move around so I can’t thrive I’m dissolute now that you’re gone Nomadic lost without a tribe Somehow we will find what we need Contraband There’s something in your pocket Nothing you can remove It’s close to your equator Amid your lines of latitude Can you tell me why I can’t come through? It’s like you don’t exist when I want you to I know something’s wrong, cause I don’t see your hands You can’t hide from me, though I’m a simple man It’s just little white lies and halfhearted truths It’s the city lights shining right on through There’s a hint of red in your irises Amongst a pale sea, it’s contraband Manufacturing a smile Deconstruct your every move You’re not always self-aware I tend to follow in your shoes What’s occurring in your head That makes me fathom what I’ll lose? Can you tell me why I can’t come through? It’s like you don’t exist when I want you to I know something’s wrong because I don’t see your hands You can’t hide from me, though I’m a simple man It’s just little white lies and halfhearted truths It’s the city lights shining right on through There’s a hint of red in your irises Amongst a pale sea, it’s contraband

Contraband 03:37
Contraband There’s something in your pocket Nothing you can remove It’s close to your equator Amid your lines of latitude Can you tell me why I can’t come through? It’s like you don’t exist when I want you to I know something’s wrong, cause I don’t see your hands You can’t hide from me, though I’m a simple man It’s just little white lies and halfhearted truths It’s the city lights shining right on through There’s a hint of red in your irises Amongst a pale sea, it’s contraband Manufacturing a smile Deconstruct your every move You’re not always self-aware I tend to follow in your shoes What’s occurring in your head That makes me fathom what I’ll lose? Can you tell me why I can’t come through? It’s like you don’t exist when I want you to I know something’s wrong because I don’t see your hands You can’t hide from me, though I’m a simple man It’s just little white lies and halfhearted truths It’s the city lights shining right on through There’s a hint of red in your irises Amongst a pale sea, it’s contraband

Sons of Someone Oh, what have we done? It seems like the rest of us are alone Oh, something’s gone wrong Even all the best of us are the sons of someone And I know that you’ve lost your way And I know that you’ve been crossed once again Everyone’s been told their life is paramount You’ve grown up to think they’re better off without Cause your boyfriend sucks, and he don’t give a fuck, and you’re so fed up cause everybody knows it You know you’re a diamond that won’t stop shining But he says you’re rough, so you stay with him Oh, what have we done? It seems like the rest of us are alone Oh, something’s gone wrong Even all the best of us are the sons of someone Maybe you’d feel better when he’s not around But who’d be there for you to kick you while you’re down? We weren’t supposed to all be foreign So lost and I’m someone, but who I have forgotten You used to be certain, and someone I believed in It sold to, conformed to your name Oh, what have we done? It seems like the rest of us are alone Oh, something’s gone wrong Even all the best of us are the sons of someone
7.
Titan 04:39
Titan I’m a midnight organ donor I sleep until the end There’s always the one My home’s been lost like yours What do I do now? Just forget your origins I’d rather not remember why we live like this Keep looking to the future When will it arrive? Masked as the past I don’t have hope like yours Cynicism now Just forget your origins I’d rather not remember why we live like this

about

Noble is a songwriter who embodies the modern struggle of being stretched too thin. His sound is caught between the eclectic blips of beat making and droning melancholy of indie rock. Living in Limbo suits Noble. While straddling this vast crevice on a tight rope, Noble adds the juggling act of matter of fact lyrics interwoven into the lush but abrasive soundscapes displaying a nomadic life through worldly melodies.

Noble is a native son of Colorado whom the wind has blown so hard that he has moved eight times in the last four years. First to attend university in Chicago and most recently to relocate in Brooklyn, NY. Dissolute is steeped in the loneliness of nomadic life. While looking for nothing, Noble has found influence in artists like The National, Jamie XX, and Son Lux.
