lyrics

I know everyone makes
Their fair share of mistakes these days
But lately I’ve doubling up my neighbors
And not slowing down

Wondering, why should they love?
Why should they love me anyway?

When all I do is complain
About the weather when it rains
When I can’t get out of bed or sleep in it either
When all I do is piss and moan
About traffic on these highway roads
That I use as an excuse to keep from leaving
Yeah I do

I know everyone takes
A few steps the wrong way these days
But lately I’ve been walking miles at a time
And not getting tired

Wondering why should they love?
Why should they love me anyway?

When I write these songs when no one’s home
How I can’t stand sleeping alone
But I don’t like to share my bed with anyone
And I’ve been known to whine from time to time
On deathly silent Friday nights
But I need my peace and quiet just like anyone

I speak before I think
I know that all my nonchalance is just some bad act
And I speak before I think
I know that all of my opinions should be facts
But they laugh

When I want to act like I don’t give a shit
‘Cause I can’t relax not for a minute
Gonna suffocate myself with all my worrying
I said I’m bored to fly, let’s drive across
But they know I can’t stand getting lost
Gonna leave myself behind with all my hurrying
Oh yeah

We love making music and playing shows. We’re not that fond of writing third-person biographies and comparing our sound to a synthesis of indistinguishable post-genres. We hope our songs will get your feet stomping, your knees knocking, and your heart pounding – because that’s what they do for us. ... more
