In Their Words: "I wrote 'Apparition' in a cabin on the Vermont/New Hampshire line over a July 4 weekend. A rough breakup, a bottle of rosé, and that open major-7 chord full of mixed feelings pushed it right along. The narrator is a regretful character who drinks too much and doesn't quite know where things went wrong. He is consumed by an ex-lover and only half-tries to keep himself together. The images in the lyrics are borrowed from a number of places, most notably a trip to Alaska ('float plane'), Greenpoint, B.K. (O'Neil's place being a stand-in for an Irish pub on Franklin), a certain literary Brooklyn-based rock band ('Lucky Mr. Finn'), and a story my mom told me about the river in Cleveland catching fire ('watch the river fire unfurl')." -- Singer Nick Loss-Eaton
