about

"We hope that people connect with these songs the way that we have over the past year. We sort of feel like these songs are our children, in the aspect that we have spent so much time nurturing these pieces of our heart, and watching them grow into beings that have a life of their own. Making this album also gave us the opportunity to touch on some issues that are very close to us. Everything from the debilitating effects of shyness and social anxiety, to artists being displaced from their homes in San Francisco. We always strive to give hope to others who are struggling when we write our songs, but this time we also discovered we have a bit of a rock and roll edge, and we had a blast infusing that into our usual pop style"

Track Name: Bury Me Alive
Biting my lip and shying away,
You don't want to hear what I say anyway.
Second guessing my thoughts to the point
that there's no point.

Biding my time, it ends up a waste
Not seeing the clock, but still feeling the chase
always justifying why I should stop trying.

But someday, I'm gonna rip the tape off
and scream my face off
Someday I'm gonna tear this place up

When the dirt's fallin' in
on the grave that I put myself in,
Overcome with shy, I bury me alive.

I let myself down it's like a disease.
No one knows my name because I never speak
I keep my thoughts inside and lose another night

But someday, I'm gonna rip the tape off
and scream my face off
Someday I'm gonna tear this place up

When the dirt's fallin' in
on the grave that I put myself in,
Overcome with shy, I bury me alive.

Some say silence- it is golden
But its holdin' me down
Some say silence- it is golden
But its holdin' me

When the dirt's fallin' in
on the grave that I put myself in,
Overcome with shy, I bury me alive.
The dirt's fallin' in
on the grave that I put myself in,
Overcome with shy, I bury me alive,
I bury me, I bury me, I bury me alive
bury me alive
bury me alive
bury me alive
Track Name: Follow Me
City full of ants afraid of taking chances
they tunnel blindly as they carry their load.
There's no making plans, there's no second glances
just keep consuming, there's no other way to go

And the rent goes up to the point we can barely make it
Still they load us up to the point that our backs are breaking

Follow me
We'll break free
Tear down the walls of mediocrity
F-R-E-E follow me
F-R-E-E follow follow

Weak from all the beatings, sick from your forced feedings
We band together and we plan our escape
We grind through the dirt and the grime
But we know that one time, we'll break through to our fate.

And the walls cave in
The art from our home is now scattered around us.
We rebuild again.
Make it better than when we found it.

Follow me
We'll break free
Tear down the walls of mediocrity
F-R-E-E follow me
F-R-E-E follow follow

Follow me
We'll break free
Tear down the walls of mediocrity
F-R-E-E follow me
F-R-E-E follow follow

We're beginning to see the light.
Keep climbing, keep climbing

Follow me
We'll break free
Tear down the walls of mediocrity
F-R-E-E follow me
F-R-E-E follow follow
Track Name: You're not the First
The world is covered with a million roads
your mother's mother traveled long ago.
And no one's there to give you the map to the promised land
Everybody's got their struggles, ever since the dawn of man.

Just remember that the same sky has heard your grandmother cry.
Watched your father take his first breath.
For those nights that just seem endless..

You're not the first, you won't be the last.
Tomorrow is today, the future is past.
Don't ya think that you are gonna make it through?
Honey, they've done it before, they'll do it again.
You just do you, and try not to be part of the problem

My soul is covered with a million woes.
Since I discovered myself long ago.
In someone else's shoes I'm walkin', thought I was walkin' by myself.
So many other voices talkin', so many other cries for help.

Just remember that the same sky has heard your grandmother cry.
Watched your father take his first breath.
For those nights that just seem endless..

You're not the first, you won't be the last.
Tomorrow is today, the future is past.
Don't ya think that you are gonna make it through?
Honey, they've done it before, they'll do it again.
You just do you, and try not to be part of the problem.

Just keep on livin'.
Just keep on givin' like the others before. Like the others before

Just remember that the same sky has heard your grandmother cry.
Watched your Father take his first breath.
For those nights that just seem endless..

You're not the first, you won't be the last.
Tomorrow is today, the future is past.
Don't ya think that you are gonna make it through?
Honey, they've done it before, they'll do it again.
You just do you, and try not to be part of the problem, of the problem.

no- oh- oh
whoa- oh


You're not the first, you won't be the last.
Tomorrow is today, the future is past.
Don't ya think that you are gonna make it through?
Honey, they've done it before, they'll do it again.
You just do you, and try not to be part of the problem
of the world.
Track Name: Confetti
It seems my heart has left my body tonight
Perhaps it just floated up ad followed the light
Some unseen circumstance could make this our last chance
Let's make it last like the first time
I'm giving in 'til the tingle in my skin
Is synchronized with the stars in your eyes

And the pressure grows
as the moment slows
and the beat drives, as the lights blind
and the confetti...

And the confetti falls
The confetti falls
the confetti falls
the confetti falls

Like sparkling wine, I'm bubbling over in my Dixie cup
As I wait for you to drink me up.
And as the melody winds around the moment like a pedestal,
It lifts me up to you.

And the pressure grows
as the moment slows
and the beat drives, as the lights blind
and the confetti...

And the confetti falls
The confetti falls
the confetti falls
the confetti falls

It's easy to get swept away
It's easy to get swept away

And the pressure grows
as the moment slows
and the beat drives, as the lights blind
and the confetti...

And the confetti falls
The confetti falls
the confetti falls
the confetti falls

The confetti falls
the confetti falls
the confetti falls
