about

After playing together for two months, multi-instrumentalists Jacob Hood and Ryan Fernandes decided that it was time to release an album. Recorded in Ryan's modest garage in around 10 hours, this is Coffee & Cream's debut album Checking the Skyline. It features two acoustic guitars and voice. This is a stripped-down version of a soon-to-come full-fleshed rock album.

Track Name: Daylight Shavings
There’s solace in living through a mirror
The view from the window is so ugly
Looking forwards I’m blinded by fear
And behind me is everything that should be

Tripped and fell, I missed the ground
Reality is so much less forgiving
A gift taken for granted, then thrown around
I shouldn’t have been so thoughtful
Sorry

An empty embrace
And a sieve full of promises that life made me
Well it seems that this chase
Has been on a treadmill in its entirety

Tripped and fell, I missed the ground
Reality is so much less forgiving
A gift taken for granted, then thrown around
I shouldn’t have been so thoughtful
Sorry

An empty embrace
And a sieve full of promises that life made me
And here I am again
Pretending to be free, defying memory
Track Name: Air Conditioning Has no Use for Me in the Winter
Wherever you go
There's always one thing you should know
Please stay away
It seems you can't control your affections coming my way
If these things you do
I will always respect and be thoughtful towards you

For you it's a joke to be
But for me, it's an upcoming travesty
I'd like for things to come to fruition
But by the look of things, you'll be my mortician

Through it all, I've always been there (x 3)

Oooohhh...
Track Name: Robbed Blind
All the time
I wait for something to be mine
And all the day
I wait for something to come my way
But it's taken from me
When I cannot see

Would you take
Away from me now? (x 3)

It'll take awhile
'Til I can find my smile
The thing I hate
Is simply greed, your worst trait
Please don't take it from me
'Cause I cannot see

Please don't take away from me now
Why'd you take away from me now
Track Name: I've Never Seen Apples So Cheap
I know you
We were a duo, I called you blue
Do you know me?
After the countless hours on TV
But no it's done
I know you're the fortunate one
And you know that I
Don't care less and that's no crime

How can you say, the city is the best?
When there's no apple orchard
To take my rest

Sleepy eyes
Come and see your surprise
It is dark
There's not much flint to light a spark

How can you say, the city is the best?
When there's no apple orchard
To take my rest
Track Name: High and Dry
Two jumps in a week
I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy?
Flying on your motorcycle,
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You'd kill yourself for recognition,
Kill yourself to never ever stop
You broke another mirror,
You're turning into something you are not

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

Drying up in conversation,
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces,
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit at you,
You will be the one screaming out

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

It's the best thing that you ever had,
The best thing that you ever, ever had
It's the best thing that you ever had,
The best thing you ever had has gone away

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
