about

We recorded this Live onto tape at our Gold Vine HQ in Whittier, CA. With the help of Scott Asher, Jake Alva and Jordan Flores, We turned the house into a studio, spreading the amps into different rooms as to reduce mic leakage. We spent about 6 hours non stop playing until we did a take that we all liked for each song. But that doesn't mean we made this album in 6 hours. This album has been in the works for a long time now. Some songs are brand new and a couple we've been playing for almost a year now. These songs have seen band member changes, many arguments, many laughs, and a few cries. We were all (and still are) so young when we started this band and as we grow with the band things start to veer us off from our focus on the music.Things like girls, school, work, parents, break ups, etc. But none of those things mattered when we were playing music together. Everyone has things in the back of their mind that they cant stop thinking of. Everyone wishes they could be free from the responsibilities that come with growing up. Nobody wants to work for the things they desire. We hope to convey this message to you when you're watching us play at a show, or listening to us at home, school, in your car, or laying in your bed: No matter how happy you may feel or how care free you may be, everyone has off days. We hope that next time you're having an off day you can listen to our music and relate to how we're all feeling. We hope that when you're watching us play, it helps you forget about all the problems in your life that you're dealing with at the moment. When we look into the crowd and see all the sad teenagers smiling, we know we're doing something right. And with that said, we present to you, "Off Days."

Track Name: How Do You Feel
Put the music loud and listen very close
How do you feel, or do you even know?
Turn out the lights and close your eyes
Listen to the voice, can you hear the cries?

1 2 3 4 tell me how you feel and more
5 6 7 8 come on get your facts straight
Come with me, and you will see
Everything is how it needs to be

What do you think everything means?
Is anything exactly what it seems?
Is anybody right if everyones wrong?
If everybody's weak, is anyone strong?

1 2 3 4 tell me how you feel and more
5 6 7 8 come on get your facts straight
Come with me, and you will see
Everything is how it needs to be
Track Name: Off Days
Have an off day
Every now and then
Can't get on my feet
Can't even pretend

These aren't words, that mean nothing
They mean something
To me

Mind feels so numb
Feels like its drifting away
Feel so alone
Most of the day

The aren't words, that mean nothing
They mean something
To me

Feel alone, like one cloud in the entire sky
I'm the guy on the side, the one that no one likes

Feel alone, like one cloud in the entire sky
I'm the guy on the side, the one that no one likes

Have on off day
Every now and then
Can't get on my feet
Can't even pretend

These aren't words, that mean nothing
They mean something
To me
These aren't words, that mean nothing
They mean something
To me.
Track Name: Had a Heart
I had a heart and its filled with hate
You took my heart and you threw it away
You left me lonesome for a few days
Now i have found someone and I'm proud to say

I don't need you anymore
You made your choice when you walked out the door.

I was lost in my own despair
I went and looked for love but it wasn't there
Now I'm happy, she is my dear
Another loss like that one is my greatest fear.

I don't need you anymore
You made your choice when you walked out the door.

I had loved you for so long
It was hard for me to move on
It was even harder when you were gone
Now i can care less, I know we are done

I don't need you anymore
You made your choice when you walked out the door.
Track Name: The Cowbell Song
Cowbell.
Track Name: Let Me Be
When life doesn't go your way, don't sit on your ass and cry
Cause there's no one to blame, don't lie to yourself and say its fine

There's a trillion other things to do, I know you can think of one
Come on, please don't be so cruel
Oh well, I guess we are done

Those times we had were fun
Together, you and me, you were the one

Don't come back to me again, I'm just going to run and hide
Unless you want to be friends, then I guess that will be fine

Those times we had, were fun
Together, you and me, you were the one
Those times we had, were fun
Together, you and me, you were the one

Nothing will ever be the same, you made me this way
You're the only one that I blame, you're the one I shame
I can't tell you how much it hurts to know you made it worse
To know this was your curse, you're nothing but a flirt

Those times we had, were fun
Together, you and me, you were the one
Those times we had, were fun
Together, you and me, you were the one
Track Name: Light
Going down the same path
People leave and people laugh
Just move on cause they don't know
Open up your mind if you want to grow

Don't give up on your dreams
Make them your reality
Follow us and you will see
We will dream for eternity

There's more to life, than you think
You might need help exploring
Just look up and you will find
Things unknown to man kind

Don't give up on your dreams
Make them your reality
Follow us and you will see
We will dream for eternity

Don't give up on your dreams
Make them your reality
Follow us and you will see
We will dream for eternity
Track Name: Not His Fault
Sitting on the bus and a black man gets on
He's been sitting in the rain and the piss from all the bums
He sits behind me, my eyes are tearing up
Everyone looks at him like he's not one of us

Thats not the way people should be treated
It's just wrong, and I can't leave it
If we looked in the mirror, we'd see an ugly monster
It's not his fault, so won't you just leave him
Track Name: In My Room
There's something in my room and its creeping around my bed
It creeps so smooth, is it all in my head?
I think I may be dead by the end of the night
I think I may be dead by the end of the night

I don't feel anything
did it bite or did it sting?
I'm lost inside my head
when will this end?

I don't know where I am, am I falling apart?
This thing has taken me way off into the dark
In the bottom of the ocean, I see black
Is this where I will die, or will I come back?

I don't feel anything
did it bite or did it sting?
I'm lost inside my head
when will this end?

I don't feel anything
did it bite or did it sting?
I'm lost inside my head
when will this end?

I think I must wake up before it's too late
Is my body in the same old place?
I think I may be dead by the end of the night
I think I may be dead by the end of the night

I don't feel anything
did it bite or did it sting?
I'm lost inside my head
when will this end?

I don't feel anything
did it bite or did it sting?
I'm lost inside my head
when will this end?
Track Name: Weight On My Shoulders
I've got a heavy weight on my shoulders
It's way to much for me to carry
It's making me feel like a loser
It's just all way too heavy

I had a peaceful walk, through the small forest
Trees were kind of tall, but the sun still seeped through it

Don't live in morrow
Don't live in regret
Don't fill your lives with sorrow
Just try and make it the best

The wind was picking up, and blew the leaves away
My throat was getting dry, this is all I can say

Don't live in morrow
Don't live in regret
Don't fill your lives with sorrow
Just try and make it the best

I've got a heavy weight on my shoulders
It's way to much for me to carry
It's making me feel like a loser
It's just all way too heavy

Don't live in morrow
Don't live in regret
Don't fill your lives with sorrow
Just try and make it the best

Don't live in morrow
Don't live in regret
Don't fill your lives with sorrow
Just try and make it the best
Track Name: White Owl
What do you do when you can't get down
Where do you go when you can't be found
Where is my life leading me
Am I growing the wrong tree
I thought that i made no mistakes
But it's hard when your focus breaks
When everyone says something else
Don't listen do it for yourself

Where do we go from here
In love for the past two years
White owl, watching over me
Is this where I'm supposed to be

What do you do when you can't get down
Where do you go when you can't be found
Where is my life leading me
Am I growing the wrong tree
I thought that i made no mistakes
But it's hard when your focus breaks
When everyone says something else
Don't listen do it for yourself

Where do we go from here
In love for the past two years
White owl, watching over me
Is this where I'm supposed to be
