about

After nearly three years of writing, recording, mixing and remixing we have finally finished our first EP, Scarlet Nights. This EP was recorded at The J house and on Comstock Street. We would not have been able to do this if it weren’t for the amazing people living in The J House, a special shout out to Jeff Linden who let us use his gear to record most of the EP. We would also like to thank everyone who has supported us over the past couple of years; we truly hope that you enjoy these tracks. Thank you Keith Lalley for the live recording session on Room 12 and Revelations, you are the bees knees and your mixes are incredible. Rachel Harding did all of the amazing artwork and photography. This would not be complete without an amazing master, thank you Jonathan Maisto at Backroom Studios for putting the final touches on this project. Hopefully the next one doesn’t take three years. Also, we would like to thank friends, family and everyone who has supported us over the past couple of years; we truly hope that you enjoy our music. It took us sometime, but it was well worth, hopefully we get the next one out sooner. -TWA

Track Name: 3/3
It's the saddest song you'll ever hear
Maybe the most pain that you'll ever fear
You want to get them back but it's much too late
And you've gone too far

Some things are made of steal and
Some wounds will never heal
You're always talking smack, picking fights in the back
I wish that you would simmer

Tell yourself it's time to quit
Please spare me all that bullshit
At last you get your way but it's far too late
Now you can't go home

You finally got what you want
Look at you way up top now
You won't even look in my eye
I can't say it's a total surprise because
You do what you do look at you way up to
Like a big shot
You'll get what you get
Guess you never really knew what you wanted in the first place, did you

It's right here in front of you
Your friends were always there for you
But you pushed them all away like it
Meant no difference in the end my friend

You scared your love away
You made your family pay
You got everything you could ever want
But no one to share with

You finally get what you want
Look at you all alone up there
You won't even look in my eyes
I can't say it's a total surprise because
You do what you do look at you way up top like a big shot
You'll get what you get
Guess you never really knew what you wanted in the first place, did you

It's the saddest song you'll always fear
Some pain is just so clear
Look at you way up top
Never looking down

Never knowing what is right
Always living with such strife
Some pain is just so clear
The saddest I can write
Track Name: Stalk Syndrome
Well it's been some time since I've seen you around man
I wonder what you're doing in this broken town
I want to talk to you because it's been so long
But you are so cold so now I'll be gone

Lay awake in bed until 5 in the morning
All in my mind with your thoughts that are stirring these
These pent up feelings and gestures you'd do
I thought we had nothing
Damn I know that's not true

Aint it funny how everybody walks like you
Everybody talks and everything is so fucking blue
Chocking down this jack until the bottle is dry again
Smoking on this spliff until I die

Well I see you again outside the liquor store
You know the one at George st. saw you at the door
But you wouldn't even look in my direction
How very rude of you to deny my erection

Well what's up? I buy my booze I leave my car
Time to get the pain away forget the scars
But now I'll be awake until 5 in the morning
I really miss the sound of her sweet snoring

Aint it funny how everybody walks like you
All of these creatures all of these features so on cue
Not so funny when everything brings up the past
How come the good things fail to last

I see you for the last time out of the corner of my I
I look at you, you look at me, we're both surprised
So I choke out your name I say, "Hey, what's new?"
You look at me and say, "What the fuck is wrong with you?"

Well what's up, guess I fucked up, am I out of my mind
I didn't think that passing you was such a crime
But then you grab your phone and dial a police report
Cops up my ass I guess I'll see you in court

Aint it funny how looks like you
I wouldn't imagine the trouble it would out me through
Not so funny when the pigs are up my ass
Court ordered restraints against me but I didn't attack
Track Name: Room 12
Anchored feet and heavy head
Bucket list empty, no regrets
Drowning slowly sinking into my bed

Passive income has no flow
Just a river of dead weight and empty hopes
Gains by means of inaction

So go make it happen make a change make it yours
Make something of yourself, push and do a little more

So go make it happen make a change make it yours
Make something of yourself, push and do a little more

Only you can paint your sky's
It starts off grey you wonder why
Nothing works out in the end

Why appease one just to please
You have your life make memories
We all rot the same in the end

So go make it happen make a change make it yours
Make something of yourself, push and do a little more

So go make it happen make a change make it yours
Make something of yourself, push and do a little more
Track Name: Revelations
Hey, what are you up so late
I just got a message I couldn't negate
I know I've been ignored and I thought my thoughts
But it's time for me to move on, it got too hot

So I'll smile, I'll say my piece I'll walk on
It's a beautiful day but you are gone
I need to write the whole thing down and write down
The thoughts I think are thoughts and there is nothing wrong

I walk into the sun, it's so bright
But the most beautiful thing in this life is night
So I'll sit and I'll stare and I'll wait for the stars
This wonderful universe can cure even the deepest of scars

And up on Mars so bright
It's like the shadows, their watching you
Up and beyond all night
I know that you can feel it too
Unlike a dream so clear
And the thoughts that are thought by up
Up in the stars there's no fear
So I'll sit and I'll wait for a few

Hey, I'm sorry that I send to you so late
Looking at the heavens such a beautiful place
With no agony way up high
It's where I live my own life

Away form harm, away from fear
My visions never been quite so clear
It's safe in this high I have higher than the moon
And if you're stuck on Earth, the one I see your doomed

Such a vast, stunning place
With not one problem not one trace
But there's no one up here floating with me
So I fall back down to earth on my knees

And up on Mars so brights
It's like the shadows, they beckon you
Up in the stars all night
I know that you can feel it too
And now my dreams so clear
And the thoughts that are thought by you
I can't be alone up here
So I'll sit and I'll wait for a few

Hey, what are you doing up so late
Looking at the heavens such a beautiful place
They mystify you too, I know that now
No more pain to follow through

Such a quiet cold peaceful night
But then the sun comes up and gets so bright
Now everything is seen again
Such a solid means to an end my friend

Such a colorful day
But then the sun shines down harsh on me
With no remorse I get on up
Enjoying the daytime, the bright bright sun.
Track Name: To be Heard
Words to be heard, you know I'm sick of it all
I'm sick of lying here waiting, waiting for it to dissolve
Some say that words cannot hurt, I'll tell you that I can do worse
And don't you look at me with that tone because you philosophies are perverse
You won't preach hate to my kin
You best move along it's time that you found a different street

Can we unite
Can't even look in each others eyes there's
So much despise
So much hate in these sky's

Can we unite
Can't even look in each others eyes there's
So much despise
So much hate in these sky's

We all know low self-esteem leads to violent acts
Or to big mouthed bigoted skinheads that like to talk with an axe
I know you're gonna get pissed, gonna want to speak with your fists
How about we stop we sit we think we don't need violence for this
No altruistic behavior, think about yourself let the others waiver
You feed my misanthropic beliefs
But we all gotta walk these same streets

Can we unite
Can't even look in each others eyes there's
So much despise
So much hate in these sky's

Can we unite
Can't even look in each others eyes there's
So much despise
So much hate in these sky's

Brothers and sisters what if we all stand tall
Got each others back to the grave to the sky one and all
Brothers and sisters what if we all stand tall
Got each others back to the grave to the sky one and all

I've got to tell you that I wish we could unite because
Everyone is beautiful but some of us are blind
In a world where the liars outnumber the saints
In this land so much ignorance, so much dismay

We are so obsessed with images and labels and pride
We gorget we all are humans here no need to divide
So I'll ask you my friend will you take this stand
And I'll ask you again, will you take my hand

Can we unite?
Can't even look in each others eyes there's
So much despise
So much hate in these sky's
