about

We recorded this EP ourselves in late spring/early summer of 2014. It's available for free download and in swanky hardcopy form (also for free) at all of our shows. Please feel encouraged to download these tracks for free and share them with whoever you think might like our band. If you feel like you want to toss us a few bucks for the tracks, know that every penny we make goes directly back into the band for better recordings, cooler stuff to sell and give away at shows, and gas to make our way there.

Track Name: OMGWTFBBQ
I used to labor in anger, waiting for my life to truly begin
I wore a scowl atop my face, atop a neck tightened to the wind
I’d look to every horizon line to lead me to the promise land
Only to find that I never found where I didn’t live in regret

But I’d take every knife in my back
Every fist to my head
Every shot across the bow
I’d die all over again
From every bloody little sin
That lead me right here right now

With a path as gnarly as my twisted little mind
With every pound of flesh I paid I longed to go back in time
Wherever I wound up, I dreamt my life a dream that I could wake up from
It felt like every step I took seemed a slight against everyone

But I’d take every knife in my back
Every fist to my head
Every shot across the bow
I’d die all over again
From every bloody little sin
That lead me right here right now

And You
You give me pause
So I’ll give you up my sleep
You take away this ache so I can take anything

You wreck my nerves
You damn near kill me
And that’s exactly what I need

But I’d take every knife in my back
Every fist to my head
Every shot across the bow
I’d die all over again
From every bloody little sin
That lead me right here right now
Track Name: A Dame to Kill For
Verse 1:
Through eyes like mine a little beauty goes a long way
Streetlight bright technicoloring the dark grey
Never would’ve thought I could’ve ever find that
Never seen a color that could cover this black
Then she walked in like a splash of red ink
On a black white page, didn’t know what to think
Except I reached the end and I had to know more
But instead I reached until she walked out the door.

Verse 2:
It seemed so simple in monochrome pages
If he said the wrong thing the artist could erase it
But my words are written in indelible ink
So I save her the trouble and I drown them with drinks
Should be chasing crooks and clues but I'm here
Getting to the bottom of this bottle of beer
And it ain’t no mystery how this night’s gonna end
Though I won't remember getting home again

Chorus:
Sometimes I feel like a sundial at midnight
Too little, too late I hesitated you’re gone
If the light had been right I could passed for a hero
But the sun’s gone down, the plot’s moved on
And I can still wish for a second act twist
But if I haven’t changed yet, then there’s no hope in hoping
It’s time for this hero's journey's conclusion
It’s high time this chain of regrets was broken

Verse 3
What if I traded my menial wages
For dockside shootouts and classic car chases
A real gunslinger with no feelings of fear
Instead of loser drowning feelings in beer
Is that the kinda man that you’ve been dreaming of
Is that the kinda man that you think you love
Well that ain’t the man that I grew up to be
But watch for the changes coming up in act three

Chorus:
Sometimes I feel like a sundial at midnight
Too little, too late I hesitated you’re gone
If the light had been right I could passed for a hero
But the sun’s gone down, the plot’s moved on
And I can still wish for a second act twist
But if I haven’t changed yet, then there’s no hope in hoping
It’s time for this hero's journey's conclusion
It’s high time this chain of regrets was broken

Final Chorus:
Have you ever felt like a sundial at midnight
Too little too late you hesitated they’re gone
If the light had been right you might’ve passed for a hero
But the sun has gone down the plot has moved on
And you can still wish for a second act twist
But if you haven’t changed then there’s no hope in hoping
It’s time for a character arc resolution
It’s high time this chain of regrets was broken
Track Name: Please God, Kill Peter Parker
One hand on the wheel as I watch my life go by
just wave and smile to myself
turn up the stereo as I roll my window down
spark up another cigarette
the sun shines brightly past the CDs on my visor
weathers so nice it's hard to care
blasting "My Friend Peter"
shamelessly yelling every word
everyone needs their own anthem

And I remember every note like a lifeline to my past
of all the times that couldn't last and all the things I once held dear
"...And out come the wolves" sound tracked my dreams
and "Hello Rockview" drowned out screams
of anger, angst and broken hearts
and my whole world falling apart

These songs all meant the world to me
they saved my life and kept me sane
these anthems light the way for me
past the dark times and all this pain

And I remember every word
of "Sweater Song" and "El Scorcho"
and the first time that I heard "Knowledge", "Bombshell", "I Got No"
"Your Favorite Weapon" vindicates the hours fueled by hurt and hate
and makes me feel justified despising girls I used to date
