ethanbrock33 Flooded with simple yet captivating melodies, raw emotion, and great vocals! 10/10 in my book! Favorite track: Sadness to Undo.

Nate Burr Busting with energy, flooded with prominent melodies with personality and flair. Powerful and well-realized, this album successfully emulates its influences while carving out their own identity. Much better production values than most Idaho groups. Can't wait for more. It'll be tough to top this. Favorite track: Lucky Last Cigarette.

Track Name: Look What You Started
Hey, it's me
And Rex
And Jackson
Just driving home and thought I'd call you back so call me back when you get this
Okay, adios

Nice to meet you where you been
Are you gonna let me in
We can have a couple drinks
And I'll start smoking again
Shit my asthma's freaking out
How long you been in this town
Yeah sometimes I hate it too
Now we're caught up in your room
We stay up all night and talk
Man I think it's getting dark
Next time I look out the window
Realize I can see the sun
She said better run my friend
I'm like fuck that let's just spend
A couple nights together
Oh shit did I fall in love again

And I can see it now
A couple cats and a house
And we'll fall apart
But girl when can we restart

And we'll get you out
Of your apartment
Look what you started
I'll never be the same again

And now I'm burning
All of the garbage
Of who I am
Look what you started

Where'd we go
Where'd we go
Don't you tell me you don't know
It was good
Now it's gone
So am I the one at fault
Could have gone for so long
But did I do something wrong
Or were you just fucking bored

No I know
That was mean
I shouldn't be so obscene
You believe
I should leave
But I'll leave that up to me
Don't you dare try to pretend
That we'll permanently end
I got this burning feeling that it's just not fucking over yet

And we'll get you out
Of your apartment
Look what you started
I'll never be the same again

And now I'm burning
All of the garbage
Of who I am
Look what you started

Look what you started
Look what you started
Look what you started

I can't let you go
I won't let you go
And the camera will zoom in
And then your eyes will come in frame
Then the music will fade in
Then cut to me and do the same
Then wide shot shows us inching
Even closer to each other
'Til a close up of the moment
That the fire reignited

And we'll get you out
Of your apartment
Look what you started
I'll never be the same again

And now I'm burning
All of the garbage
Of who I am
Look what you started

Look what you started
Look what you started
Look what you started
Track Name: Kalani
So tell me what you want now baby
Black dress on my fine little lady
Never let you go
I can see us going far now maybe
The way you looking at me makes me shaky
Guess we'll never know

And I
Can see
You staring out the corner of your
Eye
And he
Is fun for now
But you're getting older
So turn
Around
And listen to the sound of my voice
Through all the noise

Three flights of stairs
Apartment 302
And I'm so scared I'm not prepared
But I'm thinking of you
And I don't mind
Cause I got the time
So no more saying sorry
Cause I found a piece of me

Where you going as I'm getting sober
God I hope that you are just hungover
Push me to the floor
I can feel it I am getting closer
Stripped away because I fucked you over
Please unlock the door

I don't know what happened to me
So insecure and it's fucking with me
I'm not the man that you fell in love with
But I feel like someone new
Kalani means the heavens
That much I've found is true
And Chandler just means candlemaker
But I'll shine real bright for you

Three flights of stairs
Apartment 302
And I'm so scared I'm not prepared
But I'm thinking of you
And I don't mind
Cause I got the time
So no more saying sorry
Cause I found a piece of me

Four hundred twelve
Fifth avenue
It's over and done and we had some fun
But I'm still thinking of you
And I don't mind
Cause I got the time
To wait around and listen for you
Until you hear the sound of my voice too
Track Name: Let's Go to Vegas
Let’s go to Vegas
And drift away just
The two of us
Into the Atmosphere
Let’s find a hotel
Maybe something nice
We'll see the sights
Before we’re all burnt out
Cause yeah
We had a rough time
But goddamn if it wasn’t the time of our lives

So we’ll

Throw one last party
Here’s to us and no one else
But this ain’t the city where we
Go to find ourselves
And I don’t give a fuck enough
To try and explain myself
Right now I’ll just be happy
Before we’re all burnt out

Let's go to Vegas
Cause we’re stuck in town
And you’re feeling down
So let's just get away

You said fuck this town
I said you’re right
Let's drive all night
And find somewhere to stay
Get on the high roller and wait until the top
The curvature of the earth and your body can make my whole world stop

So

Throw one last party
Here’s to us and no one else
But this ain’t the city where we
Go to find ourselves
And I don’t give a fuck enough
To try and explain myself
Right now I’ll just be happy
Before we’re all burnt out

So we’ll ride around Vegas
And piss it away just to
Feel some place that's new
Having drink after drink
Leaving no time think
I’m just living right now with you

Almost had a collision
Head on and my vision
Went black trying to fit in
That fact that we almost just died
I look back from the top
Of the life that we dropped
And I feel my heart stop

So

Throw one last party
Here’s to us and no one else
But this ain’t the city where we
Go to find ourselves
And we’ll tell our hometown
To go and fuck itself
Right now I’ll just be happy
Before we’re all burnt out
Let’s go to Vegas
Track Name: What a Way to End the Night
What a way to end the night
I feel my heart is lost sometimes
Why won't you just go away
From my mind and leave this place

I don't want to think about you
Only thing I want to feel is hate
But every time you come around
I feel the same
And break my heart again

What a way to end the night
Can't this just be my last drive
I'll forget your name and face
And wash the memories from this place

I know I can live without you
Only thing is I just don't want to
You give me just another hit of dopamine
And I might overdose
And I'm so close

What a way to end the night
I think that I can realize
This book is coming to an end
So why the hell do I keep
Picking up this pen to write you

What a way to end the night
What a way to end the night
What a way to end the night
What a way to end the night
Track Name: Sadness to Undo
I like the way when we watch movies
I don't have to explain what's going on
Even though you know I do anyway
I like the way you give directions even when it's just down the street
The way you scoff and roll your eyes and look at me
And I like the way you get irritated and even though your smile's faded
I still know somehow you give a shit

And even though some pages have been torn out of our book
There's much more to be written and so much I've overlooked
Sometimes I get the feeling I can't sing the rightest song
For the rightest girl, but I'll make it up to you
We'll see the world

I guess I can't explain the things you meant and mean to me
The words are always flawed but what's the point if it's easy
So I'll find some better way in all the things I say and do
So take my hand
And we'll find sadness to undo

I like the way that we watch Hoarders to make us clean our fucking house
Even though, lately, it's been pretty clean
I like the way we got a family full of cats and bunnies too
The way we help to fight overpopulation
And I like the way that although we broke up we're still right here
Cause we stayed tough I hope you know
That I will always give a shit

And even though some pages have been faded in our book
I notice when you slip and look at me the way you used to look
Sometimes I get the feeling that I'm just a passerby
But I hope to god that one day we'll see the world

I guess I can't explain the things you meant and mean to me
The words are always flawed but what's the point if it's easy
So I'll find some better way in all the things I say and do
So take my hand
And we'll find sadness to undo

I guess I can't explain the things you meant and mean to me
The words are always flawed but what's the point if it's easy
So I'll find some better way in all the things I say and do
So take my hand
Cause we got some sadness to undo
Track Name: Auckland (Or Some Other Kiwi City)
I know
That it’s about time
For you to head out
And start your new life

And I know
That it’s for the best
But as for the rest
Of the details I find

I get
A little bit lost
And it’s gonna cost
A bit of my time

That I’ll take
To figure it out
To see if my reach
Goes across the ocean

Honey would tell me can you feel my hand reach out
Across the sea that’s what this is all about
Give me a sign that you’re not letting go
Cause in my soul yeah I know for sure that

One day we’ll meet up in Auckland
Or some other kiwi city
We'll crash into each other and we’ll fall in love again
Just like I do every time I see you
One day we’ll meet up in Auckland
Or some other kiwi city
And we’ll run forever like our breath don’t have an end
And we will never have to reach again

This has been the whole point all along
This is where I get to really start the show
This is the question behind every single song
So tell me are we reaching out or letting go

So tell me are we reaching out or letting go
So tell me are we reaching out or letting go

Honey would tell me can you feel my hand reach out
Across the sea that’s what this is all about
Give me a sign that you’re not letting go
Cause in my soul yeah I know for sure that

One day we’ll meet up in Auckland
Or some other kiwi city
We'll crash into each other and we’ll fall in love again
Just like I do every time I see you
One day we’ll meet up in Auckland
Maybe Boston or Toronto
It doesn't matter honey yeah we'll go where we will go
And we will end up in the same place yeah I know
Track Name: A Letter to Your Next Lover
Hey dude
Before I start know that this is
For her and it’s not for you

So I got it right here
A little piece of advice
But if you mess it up
You’re gonna get a piece of my mind

Don’t wake her when she’s sleeping
Let her choose what’s on the tv
When she gets off work just let her vent
She’s strong enough that she don’t need you
When she needs it let her breathe
And know that I’ll always be her best friend

Don’t get jealous and depressed
And when she gets a little stressed
Send her flowers and wish her well
But if you’re dumb and break her heart
It’s like I told you from the start
I will send your ass straight to hell

So listen to my words
But more importantly listen to hers

So here’s your letter
Go and get her
But I’m not trying to make it better
For you
I just want to see my lady smile
And I’ll get over it
But for some reason she chose you
So she’d better be happy
At least for a little while

I guess I'm not a great example
Thought I'd just give you a sample
Of what to expect if you're with her
Cause she's pretty fucking crazy
But I really have to say that she's worth
Every note and every word
I mean I couldn't make it work
Because I acted like a jerk
So many things I wish I could take back
I hope that someone makes her smile
Hope that it lasts for a while
And I hope you study every track

You'd better pay attention
You're lucky you even get a mention
Because I love her more than most
And I probably will til I'm a ghost

So here’s your letter
Go and get her
But I’m not trying to make it better
For you
I just want to see my lady smile
And I’ll get over it
But for some reason she chose you
So she’d better be happy
At least for a little while
Yeah she'd better be happy at least for a little while
Yeah she'd better be happy at least for a little while

So buddy here's your letter
Don't forget to remember
If you break her heart
I'll fucking kill
Track Name: Hurricane
You

You are a hurricane in my brain
And I’ll drown in anything but your rain
Honey just cut me loose from all these chains
The calm of the storm in the eye of a hurricane

And now we will find out
If distance makes the heart grow fonder
Or if we just forget
The shitty things about each other

One day we’ll meet up in Auckland
Or some other fucking city
Or maybe we won’t and it’s time we should let go
God damn it no I just don’t know

Are we reaching out or letting go?
Are we reaching out or letting go?
Track Name: Lucky Last Cigarette
I can see
I can see
There’s a sparkle in your eye
When we smile
And we feel like we’re alright for a while
But my dear it’ll take some time

You can breathe
You can breathe
Your soul right into me
I believe there’s a promise we can keep
But it’s not for you
I’m doing this for me

Leave your shoes at the door
Let our worries be no more
Don’t you know all the places
We can go
I been working so hard
But growth can come so slow

There’s this thing that you do
Yeah you make me wanna sing
Until my lungs collapse
And I can’t breathe
God I’m choking now
Won't you just help me breathe

And I can feel it
Yes I accuse you
You feel the same
And I’m just not used to
The back and forth
Of you seeing someone
And I’m right here
Just a friendly loved one

Right people at the wrong time
You said it darling but I'm just fine
Promise you’ll tell me when you’re ready
I would be yours if you would let me

Flip one in your pack
Call it your lucky one and smoke it last
Are you holding onto me
Like that lucky last cigarette
Every song that I wrote
Is the way I bear my soul to you
And I’ve run out of words
So I’ll just scream the melody
That you brought out of me
