lyrics

I think I'm getting closer now
to who I wanna be,
But everybody else I know
Has other plans for me.
The keep feeding me advice
On what to do, to get it right,
But too many cooks will spoil
The direction of my life.


Tangled up in social norms
You wish you could forget
It's cool to act like you don't care
And go along,
But I suspect that
Happiness will never come to those who please the crowd,
So if you've got objections,
Make 'em now and play 'em loud


No matter what we may tell them,
They've all made up their minds
So I'll just show them instead,
and challenge the thoughts
they fabricate in their minds.
And I'll wait for the day
That they take my words
and twist them around,
Try to use them against me,
Then I'll know they're finally listening.


I can't afford to sell out every week to what tests well
In Focus groups & market research
Treading water in the sea of Plebeian trends,
But greatness doesn't go out of date

Drawing inspiration from mid-2000s emo/pop punk and a few decades' worth of video games, the band specializes in upbeat tunes, with prominent melodies, distinct guitars, and emotionally-charged lyrics.

The band debuted with the Glowing in the Dark EP in November 2014, and recently released The Better Friends EP in early 2016.
