about

EP#2
because who needs a second album?
(second album forthcoming)

why's it called that? because everyone thinks we're a noisy punk band but also likes to tell us we're nice. a band of contradictions and random elements clanging against each other, we wanted to capture some of that eccentricity for you. because we're not into big macho energy but we've do got somethin' to say. etc etc etc

not just a stop along the way. here's more for you to chew on with hopefully a bit more texture and interesting flavor than What Came Before. if you like this there's sure to be more bigger + better things in the future if you all the current mind-bending hell catastrophes don't catch up with us first.

Track Name: The Next Big Nothing
There are times when I think t.s elliott was right
Let's just never pull over
Keep driving all night
Yeah, I've got enough for gas
If you can grab the snacks
Forget everything you know for a minute
Let's go
And never come back
///////////////////////////////////
We drink too much
And sleep too late
We've got honesty for days
And too many days to waste
Never got anything to say
Unless it's a bad joke
Never got anything to show for this
But our scars and our hope

No souls to sell
Or stories to tell
We make it up as we go
Always afraid
But never alone

Let's hit the road
From all we've known
When things get weird
We'll know we're home
Track Name: Fail Better
This is how it starts
Doomed to fail
The glitter
In the gutter
Always chasing our own tail


Time to let go
What you know
And face it down
The best road to take
Is the wrong way around
When I try to speak
I barely make a sound
We'll never be cool
And we can't calm down

Come on, admit that you can't dance
And it's alright to cry
If someone says that you're not beautiful
You tell them they're a liar
Maybe we'll never lead the lives we want
And maybe that's just fine
At least we made it here tonight
At least we fucking tried
Track Name: Stomachaches
Empty buildings
Crowded streets
No translation
No repeats
It's a race we can't help winning
It's a dance with just two moves
It's the sound of one hand clapping
It's a question of who stops and who goes
On and on(repeat)
I keep a gun pointed at my feet
In case of emergency
Always braced for impact
Never really sure
Who's in the driver's seat
One itch, one twitch
And it's over
Roll credits
End scene
It's a sitcom with no laughter
A contract with no guarantee
Turn the lights off
It's a scramble
It's a panic
We'll just to wait to see who's

Looking for a place to hide
(Trying to find a)
Looking for a place to hide
(There's no safety here)
Looking for a place to hide
(Got to get out)
Looking for a place to hide
(I can almost taste it)
Track Name: borders//porous
t's all just fun and games
Till the end of the work week
I'd sell my soul for minimum wage
And a large pizza with extra cheese but
WHAT IF NETFLIX WON'T SOLVE EVERYTHING???
All borders are porous
Except when they're not
And you don't have what we've all got
Lives are lost over better things
Than failed romance and guitar strings
I could almost see the other side
If all this pink glass
Wasn't in my eyes
I
DON'T WANNA BE
ANOTHER USELESS CASUALTY
OF TOO MUCH TALK
AND NOT ENOUGH WALK
DON'T WANNA BACK DOWN
DON'T WANNA SHUT UP BUT
............
all we need is unity
the I, the U, them and me
your own backyard is now set free
from imaginary tyranny
the only one who's gonna steal your job is a robot
the only solace you're gonna find is to step outside of your house
take the walls you've built around you, tear them down and build a bridge
you just might find that the other side is not so different from where you live
the life you save may be your own (Xinfinity)
