about

President Sam Richmond, Virginia

Although we are five people backed by amplifiers, our sound is a little different from most pop/punk/rock sound-scapes. We strive to push the envelope of genres that have influenced us, intertwining the familiar into something that sounds fresh on the ears. Our originality stems from the diverse musical backgrounds of the members, and a desire to forge a unique melodic path in the Richmond scene. ... more

Track Name: Brilliant Nights
Silence has a way with words
And I have a way of getting hurt
Time flies away like birds
And I've got a tendency to be a flirt
With everything that isn't real
That mentality is hard to feel

And you, you lost me in September

Look ahead it sounds like summer
Like brilliant nights
That tell me I'm a runner
Run away with me
Oh I believe
I'll go ahead and win a pointless fight
And break down a boundary
That doesn't seem right
'Cause I believe
Oh I believe

Meet me on the other side
Where your dreams and my world collide

You, you're just like June
Oh you, you're gone so soon

Look ahead it sounds like summer
Like brilliant nights
That tell me I'm a runner
Run away with me
Oh I believe
I'll go ahead and win a pointless fight
And break down a boundary
That doesn't seem right
'Cause I believe
Oh I believe

I've got two months to clarity
Race me to the edge of insanity
Sky falls come down all over me
Breathe me in

Look ahead it sounds like summer
Like brilliant nights
That tell me I'm a runner
Run away with me
Oh I believe
I'll go ahead and win a pointless fight
And break down a boundary
That doesn't seem right
'Cause I believe
Oh I believe
Track Name: Cigarette Song
Verse 1:

Kamel Reds taste like
Walks through the city at night
And Marlboro Blacks like love at first sight

American Spirits take me back
To the river days I can't get back oh no
I wouldn't even if I could

Chorus:

I know you miss it and I know it helps, yeah
I remember the way you looked
With a cigarette hanging out of your mouth

I know they say it's better for your health, woah
But I miss the way you looked
With a cigarette hanging out of your mouth

Verse 2:

Passing out to escape
Just too drunk to see straight
Slurring words and lying on the ground

If self deprecation is the
New sound sensation
Then I just might make it out of my hometown

(Chorus)

One for when I wake up
One to calm the shakeup
One for when I just can't close my eyes

Roses are red and violets are blue
But nicotine makes me think of you
I'm addicted and I don't know what to do

(Bridge/Chorus)

(Chorus)
Track Name: Government
I hate when you notice the little things
But I love when you say my name
I know that you're sorry, I love you
And I wanted to say the same

I miss when we snuck in and out at night cause I
I used to like that

And nobody approves
There's nothing left to lose
And I'll
Blame it on the government

I hate when you turn down my radio
But I love when we talk the whole ride
I know that you love to take the longer road
And I love to be by your side

I miss when you had that Cabrio cause I
I used to like that

And nobody approves
There's nothing left to lose
And I'll
Blame it on the government

I'll blame it on the government

(Woah, woah, woah)

I'll blame it on the government
