Lyrics

Trite And True

Written By: Nick and Angelo Bachicha

Oh pay attention or I'll brand you with suspicion, decay with remission that'll shake you down
Oh it's not I'm lonely you know I'm just the one and only, breaking down and molding like a tired calming sound

Oh feel the tension, my frantic heart is grippin, slip into illusion now eyes can't breathe
Oh, I'm getting closer to a door without an answer, a world without a cancer that ends in sleep

Don't look back and think, it was you, cuz no it's me
And when you give your speech just pretend I'm in a seat
Don't come for me, leaving roses at my feet
Cuz spinning little things, are dancing through the trees
On the ceiling
Telling me to dream

Mom you knew I missed her, you could even see the blisters, evangelistic sister tore me
apart
Dad, I could be stronger, but I don't have too much longer, these pills are getting stronger and I'm shutting down

Don't look back and think, it was you, cuz no it's me
And when you give your speech just pretend I'm in a seat
Don't come for me, leaving roses at my feet
Cuz spinning little things, are dancing through the trees
On the ceiling
Telling me to dream

Where The Wild Things GO

Written By: Nick and Angelo Bachicha

Take it easy, breathin slow
Take it all where wild things go

Close my eyes and hope it's soon
An arm appears but I can't move
A woman speaks but there's no sound
Wish I could get off this ground

Can't feel my face now body's numb
A wasted life but it was fun
Not afraid of what I've become
Just feel bad I won't get to heaven
Won't get to heaven

Take it easy breathin slow, take it all where wild things go
Up ahead I see the light
Ain't it strange that it means goodnight?

Did you believe them when they sung
Life was better "when we were young?"
Where devils water ain't so wrong
I guess I'll find out when I'm gone

So take it easy, take it slow, take it all where wild things go
I don't care what you've been told, I don't care no, the soul

Well oh the sun, is overrated
And oh, the stars don't sing for me
Oh the sun, is overrated
And oh, the stars don't sing for me

Take it easy breathin slow, take it all where wild things go

Final moments where's your tune?
A man appears with red balloons
He said I'll make you sweat and groove
I said ok, well I can too

So take it easy, take it slow, take it all where wild things go
I don't care what you've been told, I don't care no, the soul

Well oh the sun, is overrated
And oh, the stars don't sing for me
Oh the sun, is overrated
And oh, the stars don't sing for me

Where The Wild Things GO

The Show

Written By: Nick and Angelo Bachicha

Take me down to the movies
I wanna see the show and bright lights
Take me to the show

Don't you think I haven't seen it
I wanna see the show and bright lights
Take me to the show

Moonlight blue eyes
Disco in my head
Well I'm just so scared
That oh you're not my friend

Oh I'm slightly finding out, out
That you are, bitter in disguise

Take me down to the movies
I wanna see the show and bright lights
Take me to the show
Well it's not that I haven't seen it
I just thought the show and bright lights
Would make it like home

Cloudy twilight
Coloring the sky
Give it some time
Let my thoughts spin dry

Oh I'm slightly finding out, out
That you are, bitter in disguise

Hideous Statement

Written By: Nick and Angelo Bachicha

Hideous Statement

Verse 1:
Such a hideous statement
thats in my head

pretend like someone will hold me,
my shy heat gripping towards the sky

Chorus:
Beauty sit down beside me
sweat heart tell me your name, your name,
take these insecurities away.

Verse 2:
Energetic heartbreak
don't string my bones, with pain

Now please shift your attention
resistance pins your eyes to lie but why?

Breakdown To Solo:
whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh X 4

Chorus:
Beauty sit down beside me
sweat heart tell me your name, your name,
take these insecurities away.

I Love The Smell Of Uncertainty In The Morning

Written By: Nick Bachicha, Angelo Bachicha

I Love The Smell Of Uncertainty In The Morning

Me I'm, Just fine
In line, because I'm on this side
On this side

Well me I'm, Deaf at times
Cuz peace rhymes with free just when I write
When I write

Oh I'm just tired of breaking down
Woah woah
Oh I'm just tired of breaking down
Woah woah

Meanwhile, boys die
Moms' cry and question what's divine
What's divine?

Well Me I'm such a catch
Tangled in the Heart with nets and tricks
Nets and tricks

Oh I'm just tired of breaking down
Woah woah
Oh I'm just tired of breaking down
Woah woah

I'm just so tired, won't you let me go
I'm just so tired of being
Everybody's' puppet
Everybody's coming around
Everybody's fingers, everybody's pointing at you

So you tie a medal to you arm. And Kill and Burn
Just don't judge my blue star when it shines
No no no no no no no no oh.
