We think in octives. Dream in semi-tones. Everything in our periphery is a note or a chord. We are one in music.

Biography

We live and breathe to create music together. We live without back up plans. Just music.

Lyrics

Badlands Badlands Badlands

Written By: Laurel Macklem

Even the best days of my life have ended in goodbye
I have to man up and face the world, I won't always be my parents little girl
I will have bills that I have to pay and grow the balls to say what I'm scared to say
I will have to let someone I care about down and somethings I do will come back around
Sometimes the winters will seem awfully cold
sometimes the things I tell myself to feel alright will get old
and these scars in my skin will be a map of the road
that I had to take in order to grow.
I have to move on and move out, find a place thats not so bad
the carpets will probably be ugly and the wall paper might just sag
but I'll fill the walls with music and plaster the ceiling with glow and the dark stars
to keep me company when I'm alone fighting with my sheets in the dark
sometimes the winters will seem awfully cold
sometimes the things I tell myself to feel alright will get old
and these scars in my skin will be a map of the road
that I had to take to let my self go on
Grow up kid and be a realist
some of those childhood memories youre still bitter about are just a dream in your head that you're convinced exsists
just a dream in my head
just a dream in my head
just a dream in my head
just a ghost in that old bed

The Back Nine

Written By: Laurel Macklem

sit back and relax, today is the rainy day where I'm going to do the things I saved for when the sky turns grey when it feels like my four walls cant contain me anymore like the sky couldn't contain its tears. I'll take a drive down an old country road and make hand puppet shadows on my wall and I'll draw a silhouette of my head would you recognize me from my shitty shaky drawing?
Sit back and relax today is the day I turn my back away from all of the things that cause me dread like fruit flies swarming over my head, I'll swat them away and think clearly again. I'm going to sit next to my old favourite tree and say do you remember me? Do you remember my warm skin resting on your branches? Well... do you?
My biggest fear is that you won't remember me when I turn my back. I know it's a fact of life that everyone goes but Im still terrified maybe the lord knows why because I feel like i've been left in the dark. Everything repeats in nature, everything is comprised of a pattern. so maybe its my design that everyone I care about will resign and turn away from me. So I'll sit back and relax and wash you away until the bottle is empty and you'll be gone and I'll be lost and tangled somewhere in my head stumbling into the permanence and the truth of a sunset. I am impervious to permanence I am impervious to happiness.

This is for you and you

Written By: Laurel Macklem, Adam Johnston

This is for the girl who at one point knew me best
Always off playing pretend in her head
And I don't know why she wouldn't include me
because in my head I was playing the same goddamn story
but you gave me up x 8
This is for the end of the day where nobody's around but you.
The clouds go by as you're swallowed in darkness in your comfortable solitude.
The rain falls down as the world passes by; it seems that nobody has a clue.
You try to think that somewhere out there there could be somebody just like you.
but you gave me up x 8
This is for the song you probably left on repeat
then you go ahead and quote a line of the song to me
and it's been blaring through my head until I can no longer sleep
you said you wouldn't let me fall apart and left me in fucking pieces
you gave me up x 8
This is for the night where you got apprehended by the police.
This is for the time where you were beaten to your knees.
this is for the time where you picked up your old guitar.
This is for the time where you showed who you really are
You gave me up x 16
