about

Some shitty basement demos recorded on a not so shitty day via iphone voice memos.

Listen to these songs for their lyrics and the passion behind them. More pleasant sounding variants will exist inevitably. Also, if you like what you hear and want to be part of it, contact us, we're in need of musicians and vocalists.

Track Name: Gomenesai
I want to wake up with a case of amnesia
So I don't know you have a boyfriend or you're into him
I want to fall asleep and dream a thousand little dreams where
We do silly things like go out for ice cream

I SCREAMED

At the top of my lungs: "I think I'm way too into you"
You said: "Oh sweet boy please don't be feeling blue"
But I don't think you see, my feelings get the best of me and that's why I still feel guilty

I want to wake up with a case of amnesia
So I don't know you have a boyfriend or you're into him
I want to fall asleep and dream a thousand little dreams where
We do silly things like go out for ice cream

I SCREAMED

But not for more than a single second
Since I awoke to you lying there next to me
I lived in Japanese, I lived in Japanese
It's a language I wish that I could speak

I want to wake up with a case of amnesia
So I can smile back at you completely guilt free
I want to fall asleep and dream a thousand little dreams where
We do silly things like go out for ice cream

I SCREAMED

GOMENESAI
Track Name: Crueler
Slowcore Sunday afternoons
and I'm licking the tears up off my cheeks
Pretending oh so sweetly
I'm the dog I've never had
Whispered wiry voices
Break transmissions like my bones in

Slow motion I stop to feel their tension mounting
Mounting, Mounting, I'm standing on a mountain
Of guilt buried in my thoughts of what is good
And cool and right and fair
They get dwarfed by my hopes
that have smaller chances of coming true
then the size my heart might really be
and like the breaking of the sound barrier
every truth will--every truth will devastate me
and confiscate the confidence instilled by youth
Once hesitant we emerged a good deal crueler.
Track Name: When I Hear My Songs
They're songs to you but they're the truth to me
I sing these things so that I might sleep
You've minced me up into bite sized pieces
and now you pick me from your teeth

And try to spot my every weakness, and try to spot my weaknesses
even though they're right before your eyes

Whoever says they like me must be lying
Take one look at me you'll see I'm barely trying
I don't think I'm cool but more like a failure
Don't believe it's true? Go ahead and ask 'er

Whoever says they like me must be lying
Take one look at me you'll see I'm barely trying
I don't think I'm cool but more like a failure
Don't believe it's true? Go ahead and ask 'er

They're songs to you but they're the truth to me
I sing these things so that I might sleep
You've minced me up into bite sized pieces
and now you pick me from your teeth

And try to spot my every weakness, and try to spot my weaknesses
even though they're right before your eyes

I don't keep my friends for long and I wish I didn't know why
for every thing I do there's always an alibi
When I hear my songs, I can't help my crying
All my lives unfold and show that I've been lying

I don't keep my friends for long and I wish I didn't know why
for every thing I do there's always an alibi
When I hear my songs, I can't help my crying
All my lives unfold and show that I've been lying
Track Name: Arms Across America (Tigers Jaw Cover)
I put my body in it,
cause that's where I live.
I have my friends there,
and they like it.
I've been away for some time.
It's so warm outside.
I'd better wait,
I'm on standby.

I spend my life on this,
I spent my time on this.
It keeps me nervous,
but I like it.
He worked 2005,
I worked last July.
The room is silent,
I'm on standby.
