about

A compilation of songs we recorded from 2008 to 2010, long before we had a proper understanding of basic recording, mixing and mastering skills, in our later high school years and under our former name Staple Remover. A combination of three EPs: "Drunk Logic" and "EP 1", both recorded by Anthony Bilancia at Small Room Studio, and "Surfacing" which was recorded by our former drummer Christian Estrella at his home, our former practice space and the home of Skylid Studios.

Track Name: Live and Let Go
We'll stop the world again tonight, just leave it all behind
we dont need it anymore, throw the keys out from the door
Grab your friends and smoke a dime, We are running out of time
Dont stop for parents or police, We are dying piece by...

Theres no point in looking back, Everything is on the move
Theres no point in holding on, what you see is up to you
Nothing lasts, nothings permanent dont let it go to waste
Just move on, Just move on and dont hesitate.

Lets add some color to the sky, every shade and light
Everyone will take a part, and we'll call it modern art
Watch as the masterpiece caves in, all the colors act like sin
As they stain our man made clothes, seeping through into our souls

Theres no point in looking back, Everything is on the move
Theres no point in holding on, what you see is up to you
Nothing lasts, nothings permanent dont let it go to waste
Just move on, Just move on and dont hesitate.
Track Name: Drunk Logic
Drinking 'til your dropping down
as your body hits the ground
on the bottom you just think
“I just heard the doorbell ring”
Clutching to the toilet bowl
Throwing up some bits of gold
Then you say “your doorbell rang”
“No it didnt” “ESTRELLA!”
I used my spit as my saliva
Handsanitizer
Track Name: Last Midnight
Tonight is the last night
we’ll be together
I'm reading you this line
from the bottom of my letter

I'm tired of living
in this world so hated
I'm tired of giving
When my life is fading

I wish it wasn't like this
I wish there was another way
Cant someone say its alright
It'll be ok

And now the end comes tonight
and Ill be gone before light
to a place that cant be seen
where I can just be free

Tonight is the last night
Because I'm tired of trying
I'm losing this fight
and I know we’re dying

I'm tired of living
in this world where I'm less
I'm ready to give in
And welcome the darkness

I wish it wasn't like this
I wish there was another way
Cant someone say its alright
It'll be ok

And now the end comes tonight
and Ill be gone before light
to a place that cant be seen
where I can just be free

I'm self destructive
and heavily neurotic
I don’t belong here
I don’t belong here

I'm losing my mind
I know its not right
Take me away
Take me away
Track Name: Where We Belong
This is where we belong
Who we are is in the message of our song
On this stage with all the light in front of you
this is all we wanna do
This is where we belong
Singing of the world and things that can go wrong
And how a life can go on even in the dark
Or how our words can take us far
Just listen, this music is for you
the message is your guide, the words are all lights
That sadness, its all a lie
Look deep inside, you'll be alright
Just listen, The sound is in your heart
Don’t let it fall apart
A sound can heal If you can feel
The rhythm as a heartbeat that is keeping us alive
So let it go, watch it flow
Let it wash away the fear, let it take you over
This is where we belong
When we’re doing our best we can do no wrong
And so the time is now, the place is here
and in the end the music’s clear
These are the words and this is our story
Look at me now Look at me now
Living the best inside a memory
Look at me now Look at me now
A sound can heal If you can feel
The rhythm as a heartbeat that is keeping us alive
So let it go, watch it flow
Let it wash away the fear, let it take you over
This is where I fight my fears
and insecurities
Where my true emotions can
Finally be set free
And on those days I'm not feeling too great
I feel so much better knowing you relate
This is where we belong
Life can change with the sound of a song
And anything that can go wrong
Know its nothing, its nothing
And any word that you sing
Can change anything, everything
Let it go, watch it flow
Let it take you over
Track Name: Six Feet From Nowhere
Like battered wings fall from a fly
A darkness rises in your eyes
You fall into a pit of dread
And now to everyone you're dead

And you're so fucked you're giving up
On all the people that you loved
Drenched in a dress that's colored black
I don’t believe you're coming back

Six feet from nowhere and the shadows take your life
There's so much evil in this world where nothing’s right
Down at the bottom where the animals lay fed
Somebody’s laughing because your innocence is dead

You turn your back on everything
Where is my friend?

Your sad excuse for life is through and there was nothing we could do

Six feet from nowhere and the shadows take your life
There's so much evil in this world where nothing’s right
Down at the bottom where the animals lay fed
Somebody’s laughing because your innocence is dead
Track Name: Three Cheers For Mediocrity
It's desperate times with no measure
Escaping this prison
with never ending walls
and no one to listen

You pull me down without knowing
It's both of us who fall
I'm ready so let me go
I realize I don’t belong

All you've done is control me
So many years of conformity
All my life without a choice
All my life with no voice

But now I see another side of who I am
I cannot hide
I'm getting out I'm running free
Three cheers For mediocrity

I hate the things you say
I'll never be anything you want me to be
so get the hell out
You can't decide who I am anymore
so go away now

Words trickle downward all our memories erased
I'm walking out right now I won't ever see your face
These times will come to pass and we’ll all end up happy
This is how I want to leave, this is just how it should be

All you've done is control me
So many years of conformity
All my life without a choice
All my life with no voice

But now I see another side of who I am
I cannot hide
I'm getting out Im running free
Three cheers For mediocrity

I hate the things you say
I'll never be anything you want me to be
so get the hell out
You cant decide who I am anymore
so go away now
Track Name: Life Sucks For The Kid In The Back
My Mom is sleeping with the kid next door
My sister fucked her best friend
And everyone is getting action
but im stuck with my hand
And Im in love with the girl outside
she means the world to me
After school every night
I fall asleep in her tree

And when you fuck up, you fuck up bad
and everybody notices, they point and laugh
Theyll never understand you
and they dont really want to

I failed every course in the last few weeks
My girlfriend caught me last night
I got turned on in religion class
I swear my pants were too tight
Fell asleep on the bus on the way back home
ended up in the hottest part of hell
I caught my dad with another guy
Jacking off in a hotel

You've got your problems, and they've got theirs
It doesnt really matter though cause they dont care
Theyll never understand you
and they dont really want to

Life Sucks I never want to come back home
Someone come and save me from this place (please)

Im losing my mind
I am falling apart
We all fall behind
And I cant play the part
Im losing my mind
Im falling apart

And when you fuck up, you fuck up bad
and everybody notices, they point and laugh
Youve got your problems, and theyve got theirs
It doesn't really matter though, they dont care
And when you fuck up, you fuck up bad
and everybody notices, they point and laugh
Theyll never understand you
and they dont really want to
Track Name: Distractions
You were here when we started
We never thought it would end, but we cant pretend
That this had turned out the way we wanted
As if we got here without you
Please don’t ignore my regret, you know its hard to forget
My mind is stuck at a crossroads
So try to look on the bright side
Look at the memories we’ve made because our music wont fade
Our lives have changed for the better
I cant help but feel that this was coming
Sorry it took so long to tell you everything
Second chances are worthless
We’re not one in the same and I'm feeling the pain
Life cant always be planned, I'm sorry
I cant help but feel that this was coming
Sorry it took so long to tell you everything
