about

The self-titled, debut album by this Louisville quintet is a collection of tunes ranging from infectious, indie pop grooves and punky, guitar-driven rock songs to heartsick meandering ballads. Listeners will hear echoes of Radiohead, Neutral Milk Hotel and even Bob Dylan in this varied, yet cohesive and well-crafted freshman effort.

Track Name: hey
Hey, say what you will, say what you want, say anything at all
Hey, you can't deny how you feel deep inside
Hey, you can change your lines, but I know we're all slaves to rhymes
Hey, so say it the same, burn these feelings in my brain

Cause I felt them before
Deja vu you've become the norm
Yeah, we're led around by the forces
Our cells, it's like they're thinking for us

Hey, we're here again in this room and the words spin
Hey, chemicals and glands set us up and tie our hands
Hey, love can die we could be strangers passing in the night
Hey, that's life through the light into darkness we glide

But I heard this before
Deja vu you've become the norm
Yeah we're led around by the forces
Our cells, it's like they're thinking for us

Yeah, they say to act like a human
But I just want to be an alien
Yeah, I wanna fly to space
And fraternize with LRH

Or, like Walt Disney
I could freeze my body
And to the future ride
And when I awake
Among them I will be

With the Aliens, YEAH
Track Name: happy little boy
Well I'm a happy little boy, won't you please come on out and play catch with me
We'll go run and see, all the little bugs crawling in the dirt and in the trees
We could eat some ants, it's pure romance spending time with our doggies and cats
Riding on our bikes, it's such a delight drinking punch and playing kickball

I'm a happy little girl, so pretty I like to draw tiny unicorns
I'm always nice and sweet, I sit still in my seat and don't forget to eat my peas and corn
For mommy and daddy, I never misbehave I am their perfect little babe
I have so many friends, I play jump rope with them and Cassidy she is my best friend of all

And now I'm sinking down in nothing
From the dirt I was grown and stuck in my clothes
Well turn then, turn then, grow old, and get birthed again

Well I'm a happy little boy, won't you please come on out and play catch with me
We'll go run and see, all the little bugs crawling in the dirt and in the trees

Let the morning light you, a reflection of truth
A perfect creation of beauty and sin
Of bile, jealousy, innocence, and purity
Flawlessly balled up into you a product
From the dirt I was grown and stuck in my clothes
In my skin this situation with my joys and problems
Is this you are you my soul are we together or alone
Well turn then, turn then, grow old, and get birthed again
Track Name: my girl is crazy
My girl, she, is real crazy
But I don't care, that's just fine
It's you evil women, you make my heart grin
Though, you're angry all the time

Well you'll get your way, with me it is okay
I'm in your trance and benign
I'm under your spell, does that mean that I go to hell
And sit with the witches as they dine

Well I got a house by the river
We could live alone, together
The water will flow and I will know
Just what to do forever

You are the Queen I'm mr. bean
You could be the boss it's much better
You could be the boss much better
Track Name: the old witch
The Old Witch she dances
In a bright yellow dress
The dress has flowers forged in the fires below
An insane glint in her eye
She is definitely mad

The Old Witch is very smart
But most likely she is insane
You never know if your gonna fall apart
Or, die of old age

Bodies flowing
Her energies grow
The witch laughs
It shakes
My soul

The Old Witch she plays her drum
And howls at the guests
Who move around and get high
And, watch the Old Witch fly

Bodies flowing
Her energies grow
The witch laughs
It shakes
My soul
Track Name: spider
The spider is coming down the mountain
To eat me alive, oh no it can't be true

The spider is crawling through the forest
You know that it's true, to eat me alive

Well ten thousand, nine hundred, and fifty two years ago
You know that it's true, and you know that it's true, and you know

Well that fucking spider came down the hill to kill my soul
And you know that he will, and you know that he will, and you know

Oh violent arachnid descends with a fang in my face
And leaves me lying for dead, while I wait

He comes back and eats me in eights
I get locked up in this state, I am always paranoid
It's that fucking spider, he lives in the mountain top
Drinks all the water, it's that fucking spider

Well that fucking spider came down the hill to kill my soul
And you know that he will, and you know that he will, and you know
Track Name: bonnie and clyde
Seems like I have seen you before tonight
Seems like I have seen you before another day, maybe
Or, maybe you are from some previous life
Or, maybe I am crazy you say

I see your name's Bonnie
Well my friends they call me Clyde
Well don't you want to hug me
In the back seat of my stolen ride

Ya see I've got a gun and a mind
To light this taco stand up for a dime
The feds keep looking and it's me they want to find
So we gotta go we ain't got much time

We'll shoot, shoot
We'll shoot them down
Run, run
And never get found

Well Bonnie won't you have my darling son?
He'll be the most beautiful boy in the land
We'll raise him up good by the gun
And teach him how to live off the fat of the man

Well sometimes at night I sit alone and cry
My head turns and screams with an awful sound
You think the trees are silent, but I can hear them sighing
I'm on my way to hell, for I am bound

We'll shoot, shoot
We'll shoot them down
Run, run
And never get found
Track Name: weed
I can't remember a day when I wasn't smoking weed
Weed, yeah, weed, weed, yeah

I was already smoking when I was 10, it's how I met every single friend, smoking weed,
weed, yeah, weed, weed, yeah

Well back in school they said if you were smart you would have never started and you would never start smoking weed,
puffing on the weed, yeah

They said it's BAD, you know it's GOOD, they said you shouldn't, but you know you should
Smoke some weed, weed, yeah, weed, weed, yeah

As I am going down to see my man Luke
I scan the skies for your falling nukes
Well I am stoned again and it's just one more day
Man, screw your mission, I'm too lazy

And I look around at all your stuff
It is piled high, it's such useless junk
And I'm blowing aimless as the wind
You see I'm like dumb kid with a permenant grin

Well I am flying children and you ought to, too
It is what all of the cool grown ups do
Well you should have more sex and do more drugs
And if you play the guitar son the little girls will give you hugs
Track Name: vortex
I can see through my eyelids
I'm like a fish that sleeps in the night
My visions thumping I have pulsating skin
And a furnace buzzing in my mind

A heart's beating very slowly
And stealing close to death once again
I stop by and no one's waiting for me
I smell the food but the cook ain't in

And we reach for the counter as it falls
To find there ain't nothing at all
And China unfolds her fan
We get sucked through the vortex, again
We get sucked through the vortex, again

In the void is where I lie
I stare into the dark of my soul
Am I dead, or am I alive
Or, living after death, I don't know

Your gone now and there aint no going back
The inverse is nothing you see
The universe is all multi-tracked
The aliens are living in me

And we reach for the counter as it falls
To find there ain't nothing at all
And China unfolds her fan
We get sucked through the vortex, again
We get sucked through the vortex, again
Track Name: afterglow
How do you do? How do you feel?
Do you feel good? Well I feel fine!
A little dazed sometimes, but usually
I can fly and see clearly
And know that things will be okay

The ocean swirls with confused waves
We'll straighten them up and you will be saved
If you wake up you won't see the alternate reality
Void of form a calm and raging storm
With waves that swarm

Alone on a beach and the sun keeps sinking
Realizing you are materializing

I sit in the afterglow contemplating my soul
The devil mistakes me I am just myself you see

The water is very still we come running over the hill
And there laughs a madman who says this is heaven

I travel the old road searching for your ghost
And now that I've found you I will never leave you
