Thank you to all of our friends and family that supported us throughout the creation and process of this release. Thank you to all of the bands that played with us & listened to us. Thank you to all of the venues that put us up & all of the incredibly supportive promoters around. Thanks for all of the great conversations. Thank you for making us feel like we're worth something, we love you. Thanks to Ben & John for their creative minds that made something that I couldn't imagine creating. Thank you to our past members: Edge Mike, Mem Pahl, Kacey Shackleton, Matt Neuwirth, Tyler Curtis, Matt Whitley, Liam Donnelly, Matt Howell, Josh Jericho & the one & only, Dan Baker, a hero of our times. Music is about community, & that's what we have hoped to create.
This record is dedicated to Anna Wu, they gave us our first New Brunswick show & we're always going to remember them, also, this record is dedicated to DJ McDaniel, he was one of our first supporters & we will always remember him.
This record is about the struggle of coming to terms with yourself and your identity, these are stories of pain & regret.

Track Name: Waitress
i just want to be a waitress
i just want to get a new dress
i don't want to forget, about all your moral intellect
i don't want to be your best friend
i just want to be your worst end
i don't want to forget
i just want to loathe myself
i just want to be a waitress
Track Name: Brain Song
romance, get out of my head
dream girls, rise up from the dead
hardships, get out of my brain
grow up, stop making me go fucking insane

its the worst train wreck and, yeah, the worst part of the night
and I thought I owed you something and the times I felt so right
i would go into your voice and I would spend my Christmas Eve
with the old me that will die tonight with you

go out, stop talking your shit
you wrote me, with all of your wits
you knew that, it would be bad
i'd go out and i would just savor every laugh

its the worst train wreck and, yeah, the worst part of the night
and I thought I owed you something and the times I felt so right
i would go into your voice and I would spend my Christmas Eve
with the old me that will die tonight with you

i won't watch Seinfeld with you tonight

oh, romance
Track Name: A Grenade
love, by depressing love
two of a kind to push and shove
we were kids, we built a tomb
the times i felt so odd and new

i never felt this way before,
as you led me out the front door
i just talked to you, oh, so kind
so i could have a piece of mind

i'm sorry friend, that i was weak
i couldn't give you what you need
this town fucked me up, couldn't explain
of the sadness and the pain

i never felt this way before,
as you led me out the front door
i just talked to you, oh, so kind
so i could have a piece of mind

farewell friend, farewell friend, because i'm sorry that this is the end

god damn it, love
Track Name: Tiki Party
i will get lost in all my student loans
i can't breathe on my own
i don't know what you're trying to say
i will drown myself up into this lake
see what society can take, and you know you're far from grace
you're not my friend, all the time the stories end
and you know about the trends, then you know about what it means
tonight, on Halloween

did that status you like,
make you feel happy?
because you're an angsty, homophobic piece of shit
you'll never leave, support the scene
but you don't book girls on your shows
and then you're wild, don't stay awhile
because i'm not seeing your band that everybody knows
do you promise yourself?
when you say that you're loving someone else
and you know of the fears
up on the rooftops you're holding back the tears

we're gonna have a tiki party tonight, alright!

no, stop!
