Turn me up, you know I’ve got it Get your hands out of your pockets And I’ll make you move ‘til you feel real I am real I cum to feel I am real I cum to feel Can I sip your drink, can I have a cigarette Before I go down I need to get my lips wet And I’ll make you sweat ‘til you feel real I am real I cum to feel I am real I cum to feel Take me home, take my hand it’s fucking dark out Lay me down, show me what the fuck you’re talking about And we’ll both cum ‘til we feel real I am real I cum to feel I am real I cum to feel

Dig with your hands Maybe beneath this rain is light I need you here Believe me when I say these days are endless Show me your eyes And make the whole place shine, and shine

Talk to me right now It’s getting dark earlier each day Talk to me right now Down by the water, we have so much time And you’re beached and I’m beached Got nothing to do all day And you’re beached and I’m beached We just lay out on the sand waiting for the tide Talk to me right now You said it doesn’t matter Talk to him right now by the water And I know you’re asleep But I’ll still lie here, I’ll still lie here And you’re beached and I’m beached Got nothing to do all day And you’re beached and I’m beached We just lay out on the sand waiting for the tide

We parked the car in a desert in Idaho No stars, just swarms of mosquitoes And sand below En route, Tacoma to Denver more than half to go Our car’s adrift on a notion of open road What I want means nothing right now If I can’t fix this shit up somehow Stretching from here’s our ocean Falling in doesn’t teach you how to swim White wine you bought at an Albertson’s with firewood You killed it all by yourself just like you said you would I know I’ve done some things wrong but I swear I could Keep us afloat and together, the tide is good What I want means nothing right now If I can’t fix this shit up somehow Stretching from here’s our ocean Falling in doesn’t teach you how to swim

I’m wild, I do what I want to There’s no other way, I know I’ve got to Keep it real, I keep it so true And what I’ve got, you know you’ve got too If by now you don’t Know you’ll never know I’m wild I’m wild I’ve got a mind like the breeze that blew Don’t you wish I was blowing on you And I’ve got a body like a tree that grew Hands to the sky and I’ve got moves too If by now you don’t Know you’ll never know I’m wild I’m wild If by now you don’t Know you’ll never know I’m wild I’m wild

I am in a dream Floating on an icy sheen Is it just you and me Laying in the machine I need my ride or die Trying, don’t leave me behind What are we here for? What are we doing? What’s behind the door? Are you gonna take me to it? I need my ride or die Trying, don’t leave me behind Is it almost over? Can I be done now? I’ve had enough of her Doesn’t this end somehow? I need my ride or die Trying, don’t leave me behind

Come here, I need you on my lips I love your dark, your sweet kiss I know I’m not for you, you’re not for me You take away my light, I can’t see Can’t see I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know how to do it Help me out, help me get through it I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know how to do it Help me out, help me get through it I’ve been half empty before But I need to be, to feel full I know, I know the things you do to me Make me into something not free Not free I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know how to do it Help me out, help me get through it I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know how to do it Help me out, help me get through it

Been such a warm December It isn’t hard to remember That this was green, kind of green I sat and took in the sight, you Kissed all of the plants goodnight, you Complimented them, every scrawny stem And I want to give you all the dogs that you ever wanted But our yard’s mostly concrete Our yard’s mostly concrete And I want to farm with you and grow what we will eat But our yard’s mostly concrete Our yard’s mostly concrete This space is barely gives us Enough for us to live, such A little place to grow Space for seeds to sow We plant ourselves in the bed and Just stay inside instead, and It’s like a comic square It’s not real life in there And I want to give you all the dogs that you ever wanted But our yard’s mostly concrete Our yard’s mostly concrete And I want to farm with you and grow what we will eat But our yard’s mostly concrete, our yard’s mostly concrete Now we’re bedded down watching Netflix One day rolls into the next, it’s That tired show you’re starting It’s like our little garden Or like our dog, if we had one That life would just be a sad one Nowhere to go, the same old show And I want to give you all the dogs that you ever wanted But our yard’s mostly concrete, And concrete’s not what dogs need And I want to curl up like a dog that lays at your feet But our yard’s pretty ratchet And it’s covered in rat shit

This mouth Just smiled for no reason, should have Gone south Like birds for the season, and we’re Strung out, A body of fabric pieces Flung out So far She clouds And all of it’s for me She clouds My warmest memory This frown Is here ‘til the springtime, should have Skipped town, Escaped in the meantime, but we Hung out And pulled all the blankets, yeah we Camped out Dug in She clouds And all of it’s for me She clouds My warmest memory

I’ve got a job, guess it’s a job Don’t want a job but we all need a job Work for myself, yeah you can fire me Find someone else, want you to fire me I got a note, I got disciplined Saw what they wrote, want you to fire me Tell me to leave, tell me to leave the job Tell me that please, don’t want to need the job Yeah I’ve got friends, my friends they’ve got jobs I’ve got this friend, this friend from my job Yeah I’ve got needs, yeah I’ve got bills to pay Yeah I need gas, for driving my car away
11.
I’ve got a name, I forgot it I’ve got a face, you can have it I’ve got a real life dream, and you’re in it You can have it but don’t grab at it I know I never know where I’m going All I know is that I’ll go where the flames are flowing I go heavy like the windy that wails I make earthquakes rain fire and hail If you ever really want to get lost Just follow my smoking trail I know I never know where I’m going All I know is that I’ll go where the flames are flowing
12.
I am not yours, I am mine Now is not the time I am not what you need Give it up on your knees Flying high like smoke entwined Trying just to lose my mind Flying high like smoke entwined Trying just to lose my mind This is all my life Lick the blood from the knife Keep it all inside Do it all til I die Flying high like smoke entwined Trying just to lose my mind Flying high like smoke entwined Trying just to lose my mind

"90s-influenced brand of upbeat alt rock and indie pop flavored with crunchy guitar solos and rich vocal harmonies"
(She Shreds Magazine)

"...the sound is bigger than ever, with smashing drums, resonant vocals, and the fill-your-ears fuzz of grunge guitar. Anthemic and energetic, each song is California-ready- just enough sun, plenty of grit, and filled with urgency, like all the dreamers of the Golden State."
(Baltimore Magazine)

"...shimmering pop and oddball punk charm"
(Post-Trash)

"...a song full of actual teen angst that fully shreds."
(The Fader, on "Beached")
