Raquel Saw them at Foofest, fell in love immediately, got mad at myself that I had been missing out for this long, copped the vinyl, and it's been on super heavy rotation for two weeks now.

This album is straightforward with gut-wrenching instrumentation, home-hitting lyrics, and no skippers. Favorite track: Triumph Over Youth.

Good Times 02:22
how good are the good times when they're shared with lousy friends they don't care about my weekend they got their own shit going on one's a feature director he's got a harem of actors it's tough to live with the famous a million constant reminders how good are the good times when there's nobody watching I caught some nobody looking documented and lost it the world-weary took notice but it was met with indifference this is the loneliest palace I'd rather live in the hovel

Feral 03:06
he was a wild man lived in a tree house raised by a wolf pack he was a wild man and he’s more like an animal he doesn’t speak and only howls like a natural experiment we’re not allowed to carry out.

it’s open season for poison vermin we’re killing off the chain at the top the streets are bleeding the streets are glowing they’re always brighter in the rain there’s a pistol in my hand but it’s gone now there was wisdom in my head but it’s gone now go get a license to buy him a gun so he can protect himself from someone when did they get here i don’t even know who they are what are you gonna do just leave it there? to get run over more and more i’ve got all of the evidence cuz these film canisters tell no lies when did they get here i don’t even know who they are the wind will blow a while channeled from the bay a fear of ignorance don’t live ignorant when did they get here i don’t even know who they are the wind will blow a while channeled from the bay a loss of innocence don’t live innocent these streets get glowing reviews

Honesty 02:37
experts, zealots, politicians, and spectators interacting with people with high-functioning Asperger's you stand up straight when you speak to me you better look me in the eyes when you speak to me that's because honesty is not a policy
5.
Necktie 02:55
the air is so vulnerable when denial is sold excuses are magical when there’s a hand wrapped around and the neck is so fragile now grab hold cuz it’s an open invitation to entertain all the spectators the whole world is blowing up just like this! there’s no point in dressing up for explosions hear me now the emperor has spoken cuz they have all the cash standing there at your podium how can you deny what you’ve been told the whole world is blowing up just like this! there’s no point in dressing up so i’ve been told

Bruise 03:54
one less one more one less dollar for dollar hand over fist one bump one hit there's no mind over matter she can't resist oh no she can give it a shot do you think it's magic like money grows on trees you should kick your habits before it brings you to your knees
7.
there isn't always a good way for us to constructively criticize and there isn't always a nice way for us to end our long-term relations but I've figured it out you can just call and I'll be there come hell, high water, bad weather you can just call and I'll be there I'm there for you there really isn't a good way to tell the kids you're putting the dog down and there really isn't a nice way to tell them family members are dying but I've figured it out because I'm good with people
8.
Family Ties 04:12
look up to the sky what do you see a valley in the clouds and an owl on the chimney surrounded by concrete and old world sensibilities it is a world within a world the only way to survive in this town is to know when to look the other way turn your head avert your eyes and just pretend you never heard what they think you know what they know you know just don’t speak it’s time to leave the shades the of color found within the glass reminds me of a sharp reality resembles shame and all the guilt that comes with pain against your son just send him away send him away
9.
Anchors Away 04:39
a girl in the wood a boy felling trees he cleared her a path it would do her some good the boy he was sad that the child had to die but the son filled a need that she no longer had and she said anchors away the gray of the sea met the wind at our backs and the dawn of the day he took her to task as he walked down the plank and before he was pushed he turned and he asked and she said anchors away
10.
Gold Boyz 03:54
you pay for the drugs you pay for the war they sell you the fun you sell us the war the international community money makers they’re too big to fail and they’re too big to jail the international community money launderers that just proved it’s larger than A People’s Government justice has no place in power in your world of a tiny silver dollar of the shiny silver dollar too big to fail too big to jail how belligerent do you get Gold Boyz? when you snort their blood up you nose when you cut off their fingers and their toes sailing in your yacht from coast to coast when you snort their blood
11.
all the good she keeps forever are the things I can't remember fading, fading away like a long-forgotten picture but regret stays clear as crystal prospering in spite of decay follow through before the chance is lost the routine, it keeps me from the truth occupied by task in place of thought present moment triumphs over youth black and white, the definitions start to dim and turn and tangle washing out to light shade of gray I retreat, a place for cover seek asylum, seek out shelter beyond the pale, safe house to stay follow through before the chance is lost the routine, it keeps me from the truth occupied by task in place of thought present moment triumphs over youth beat, my heart will beat singing clear and true hearts, they break so easily so spare them from the truth what's mine is mine
