about

Why play in a band? Before we recorded Bring Out Your Dead we were faced with this question. The answer? Because making music with your friends makes you and your music better. This is the reason we recorded our first EP live-off-the-floor. That means the four of us were in one room, playing at the same time, recording the entire track together. The result is five strikingly honest songs: the tempos shift, the tuning fluctuates, the guitars buzz, and we think it's beautiful.

Track Name: Bring Out Your Dead
Half a pack of cigarettes in the trash
Seven different credit cards cut in half
A journal with my name in
A thousand written pages
My little magnum opus
I'm cutting out the parts that make it drag

And that includes you
That includes you

Bring out your dead

Christmas cards and valentines left unwrapped
A dumpster full of gasoline and a match
Throw in our apartment
and the town that we grew up in
It's our little Armageddon
I'm lighting up the parts that held me back

And that includes you
That includes you

Bring out your dead
Track Name: Relapse
Black dress
Combat boots
Five little star tattoos
Red lips
and the Devil's grin
Teeth with my skin in

shot glass
and it's half full
compliments of some other fool
But with that old look,
It's hopeless,
I've never been able to resist.

...but I try
to remember everything that happened last time.
I try.
But I forget about it all when she walks by.

She put herself in front of my eyes
She put herself in the back of my mind
In every verse and every line, man,
She drives me wild

Kiss and tell?
well shame on you.
You had me so confused
but if I let you in again
Then shame on me
This time it won't be so easy

...I'll try
to remember everything that happened last time.
I try.
But I forget about it all when she walks by.

We run in circles - we all relapse
Twelve steps forward - Twelve steps back
Track Name: Day x Day
Alive in the underground, warm and safe
The wild and the wind, the rain, stay away
And you don't hold that power over me anymore

Alive, but then just in case, I caffeinate
Sign on the dotted line - nod and shake
But you don't hold that power over me anymore

'Cause I do it all (taking it all day by day)
I do it all with disregard (taking it all day by day)
and I don't wait for the starting gun (taking it all day by day)
Every day's a free-for-all (taking it all day by day)

Chapter 10, page 98 says without chains I'd float away
Without cohesion I'd disintegrate
I'm in constant danger, but I can't wait
(You don't hold that power of me)
I can't wait anymore

'Cause I do it all (taking it all day by day)
I do it all with disregard (taking it all day by day)
and I don't wait for the starting gun (taking it all day by day)
Every day's a free-for-all (taking it all day by day)

I'm free - starting tomorrow
Track Name: LMBT1
These hands are not pretty
But I dug from underneath the city
Took an eternity, but I would keep on digging
If only you would let me be the one
Let me be the one

These legs are unsteady
But I crossed this continent already
Through floods and hurricanes, but I would keep on walking
If only you would let me be the one
Let me be the one

No one said it would ever be this hard
But I will find my way into your heart

These arms are so heavy
But there's water rising all around me
and my lips are so ready that
I would float forever
If only you would let me be the one
Let me be the one

No one said it would ever be this hard
But I will find my way into your heart
Broken down in pieces on the floor
Broken down in pieces
In pieces

Let me be the one
Track Name: Inside Voices
Sit straight - Behave
Lips sealed - Blank page
I sit still, my mind mind races
The clock moves twelve spaces
And just one voice remains
Just one voice remains

(Ooo)

Your congregation is ready and waiting
I'll sit and be calm but my mind rages
We'll end up wherever the wave takes us
And in the eye of the storm
there's just one voice that remains
Just one voice remains

(Ooo)

I'm sitting and waiting
For my turn - my hand is up
I'm behaved. The key to
my future is discipline

I'm sitting debating migration
my hand is up a bee hive
the key to my future is something I know...

I just forget.
I get distracted, and I forget.
My mind wanders, and I forget.
