It has a very laid back style, not unlike the songs written for [[listedBlack]], so perhaps this was originally written for that band and resurrected for use by Tally Hall.

Stationary Love is a song by Rob Cantor which was first included on Tally Hall's Party Boobytrap EP (version 1 and version 2) and later Complete Demos with additional overdubs.[1] After the release of Complete Demos, the song was never recorded again and only played sparingly in 2005 live performances.

It has a very laid back style, not unlike the songs written for listedBlack, so perhaps this was originally written for that band and resurrected for use by Tally Hall.

Trivia

  • During a live performance at the Pingry School in 2005, Joe can be heard singing the chorus. There also appears to be a slight change of the lyrical placement in the beginning.[2]


Lyrics

This scene looks all the same
To a player of this game
Such as you
Who didn't used to feel this way

And not talking is tricky
And you're feeling sick
Don't think too much about it

Your nerves aren't up to par
With this superstar's repertoire
Systems fail and you mutter one word unheard

Play the part of the quiet poetic
Your insides frenetic
Your habits become to crush the spoken for
It's done and hearts will break no more

Stationary love doesn't fall or break
And all it takes for you is to bury love
That has a chance to be
So keep those hands clean
'Cause if you choose security
Then you're sacrificing her to me
Forfeit for nothing for this is it

You're pausing the game
Before it begins
So you can't win
You can't win

Preserving your pride
Prompts you to hide
You'd rather feel safe than to have tried
But you can't live inside

Stationary love doesn't fall or break
And all it takes for you is to bury love
That has a chance to be
So keep those hands clean
'Cause if you choose security
Then you're sacrificing her to me
Forfeit for nothing for this is it

Time to enter the next phase of this maze
Ready or not so much or not at all
Pissed you misunderstood this race
Oh, trying to stay afloat
Just let yourself fall

Stationary love it doesn't fall or break
'Cause if you choose security then you're sacrificing her to me
Forfeit for nothing for this is it
