about

For the past two years, we've been hard at work writing new material and experimenting with new techniques. These experiments finally manifest themselves in our official debut release, "Showcase Your Sorrow" -- a self-produced, self-recorded EP about heartbreak and abandonment.

Track Name: Since You Left
Since you left, I found my way.
I didn’t need you anyway.
I found someone I really like.
Don’t give me that look.
Don’t give me that fake smile.

I’m such a liar.

Since you left, I found my way.
I didn’t need you anyway.
These drugs don’t work, but neither do I.
Took a walk in your shoes,
Only made it half a mile.

I’m such a liar.

In the lamp-lit room,
I sit alone.
It’s all yours now.
My whole world bows.

In the lamp-lit room,
I sit alone.
It’s all yours now.
My whole world comes crashing down.

Since you left...
Track Name: You Told Me
I just woke up from a dream of you.
You did the things that you always do,
But without me there.
I was so, so scared.
And now I realize what I’ve done,
And I realize this time I can’t run
Away from all of this -
Away from all of this.

And you told me
You’d always hold me.
Now I see through the lies
Through the lies you kept hidden behind those eyes.

I just woke up from a dream of you.
You said the things that you always do,
But to somebody else,
Like I was never there.
And now I realize what I’ve done,
And I realize this time I can’t run
Away from all of this -
Away from all of this.

And you told me
You’d always hold me.
Now I see through the lies
Through the lies you kept hidden behind those eyes.
And you said to me
You’d always care for me,
And I don’t see why
I don’t see why I never thought otherwise.

And you told me
You’d always hold me.
Now I see through the lies.
Through the lies. Through the lies.
And you said to me
You’d always care for me,
And I don’t see why - I don’t see why
I don’t see why I was so terrified.
Track Name: Criminal
The love has been squeezed from your heart.
She tells me it’s a beautiful art.
Oh,
She brags it’s a beautiful art.

But she’s nothing but a fucking vandal to me -
Writing on the walls of the innocent and the free.
Nothing but a common criminal, you see -
Playing with the minds and emotions of the free.

The love has been squeezed from your heart.
She tells me it’s a beautiful art.
You showcase your sorrow, though she’ll be gone by tomorrow.
She brags it’s a beautiful art.

But she’s nothing but a fucking vandal to me -
Writing on the walls of the innocent and the free.
Nothing but a common criminal, you see -
Playing with the minds and emotions of the free.

She wanders around in fields.

Nothing but a fucking vandal to me -
Writing on the walls of the innocent and the free.
Nothing but a common criminal, you see -
Playing with the minds and emotions of the free.
Track Name: The Rain
This is unprecedented.
I can only wonder how I managed it.
You and I used to be so kind,
I can’t explain why -
I can’t explain this time.

Well, the rain keeps coming.
Again and again and again and again.
And the shame - I’m always running
Again and again and again and again.

This life can’t be left behind.
Not this time. No, not this time.
It’s so strange how I’m so strange.
It’s been years now. Something’s bound to change.
And these lights, as they pass us by,
Are so mesmerizing. So mesmerizing.
And this mask - always smiling.
The perfect disguise. The perfect disguise

When the rain keeps coming.
Again and again and again and again.
And the shame - I’m always running
Again and again and again and again.

Though I have no direction, I’ll show no fear.

Will the rain keep coming
Again and again and again and again?
And the shame - I’m always running from you
Again and again and again and again.
But your name - so important to me.
Your name. Your name. Just the sound of your name.
But I forgot: I’m not important to you
Again. Again. Again.
Track Name: Go Back
Please, won’t you go away?
I don’t want to go out today.
Please, won’t you go away?
I don’t want to come out to play.

My life will never be perfect.
My mind will never be clear.
Well, I hope you find what you’re looking for,
And I pray you keep it near.

I asked her “Baby, where are you at?”
And I nearly had a heart attack.
I asked her “Baby, do you like that?”
And she lets out a little laugh.

All those talks we had at night -
Does it matter who was wrong and who was right?
I used to worry I’d fail you,
But here they want to impale you.

I asked her “Baby, do you like where you are?”
She said “I like it, but it’s pretty far
From home and everything I know.”
I say “Go back, baby. Go, go, go.”

I say “Go back, baby. Go, go, go.”
She tells me “No, baby. No, no, no.
If I don’t stay, then I’ll never get anywhere,”
As she puts another pin in her hair.

I say “Go back.”
Track Name: The Grand Scheme
In the grand scheme,
There is no theme.
There is nothing but chaos.
In the backyard,
We’ve found so far,
There is nothing that can hurt us.

Out the window,
There are no payphones.
There is no cell reception.
In the evening,
I play a simple thing
And I sing of loneliness.

Without you here, I don’t know what to do with myself.

In the backseat,
We have no privacy
We have no business being there.
That stupid phone call...
Those stupid words...
Well, now you know that I’m a coward.

Without you here, I don’t know what to do with myself.

Tears of sadness,
Tears of joy.
What’s it matter anymore?
It all amounts
To the same thing:
A pillow drenched, a broken wing.

Without you here, I don’t know what to do with myself.
