Writing and Recording

We'll be writing new music from now until mid-July when we'll be recording our first full-length album. Because we need to focus on making this record the best we possibly can, we need to take a break from playing shows. We'll be playing tonight at the Market on 7th and on June 8 at the Local 662. Come check us out before we disappear from the stage for a couple months!

Temptation

You want it, you need it But can you really feel it Subconsciously dreaming The voice inside consoles me Once lost in a vision So hard to ignore Well each day that passed me by Made me want it even more With temptation sinking in I’ll plead for you to hear That if you try to pull away Then you’d be running from your fears And why does it seem like These walls are closing in And every time we start over It keeps slipping from my hand And here we are getting closer, closer again Now these serrated edges Become paper thin The will that impels you Will be the greatest fear you tame Defend it a dreamer The art of losing can end here With temptation sinking in And I’ll plead for you to hear And why does it seem like These walls are closing in And every time we start over It keeps slipping from my hand And here we are getting closer, closer again Now these serrated edges Become paper thin And why does it seem like These walls are closing in And every time we start over It keeps slipping from my hand And here we are getting closer, closer again Now these serrated edges Become paper thin And I’ll try, I’ll try To leave everything behind It’s at my fingertips And I’m so close Why can’t you be mine?

Refrain

You refrain from ever speaking As their words continue to seep out Well how can I melt through the silence Before the riot in my mind quiets Your hands begin to shake As their words continue to flow Why am I sinking How can I overcome Well I won’t just refrain It’s taking over here And I won’t fade away This frustration of trying to get to you Apprehended and completely confused Why won’t you say what you think You won’t believe in It’s hard to regain The confidence to speak once more Though buried fear remains Resentment fills your soul Can courage withstand this hold Because you’re still screaming But I can’t hear the sound Well I won’t just refrain It’s taking over here And I won’t fade away This frustration of trying to get to you Apprehended and completely confused Why won’t you say what you think You won’t believe in me Oh,oh,oh No you won’t believe in me Oh,oh,oh So please just hear me out No more useless emotions now This troubled mind will sleep And I will convince you to believe in me Well I won’t just refrain It’s taking over here And I won’t fade away This frustration of trying to get to you Apprehended and completely confused Why won’t you say what you think You won’t believe in me Oh,oh,oh No you won’t believe in me Oh,oh,oh You won’t believe in me

Friends with a Superhero

I was flying my kite today And in a cloud I saw your face And it reminded me of a time when we were young When nothing could go wrong Where did that go How do you know it can’t get any better than this The sky is an illusion lost in the ideas that we were born to reach it And you sank so low you need a miracle to save yourself Could you destroy your life to save the world I know you’re out there somewhere Looking for yourself And your enemies are calling You’ve no fear in flying You’re in fear of falling Though you could escape the tragedy today But the battle’s in your head, and you’re the one to blame How do you know it can’t get any better than this The sky is an illusion lost in the ideas that we were born to reach it And you sank so low you need a miracle to save yourself Could you destroy your life to save the world When my story ends I want a happy ending Didn’t you know I want so much more than what I’ve got right now I wanna see the world, gonna leave this town How do you know it can’t get any better than this The sky is an illusion lost in the ideas that we were born to reach it And you sank so low you need a miracle to save yourself Cause you destroyed your life to save the world
