La Friandise Punk record of the year for me. Intricate yet very musical arrangements, raw energy, crisp mix, angry lyrics, the right blend of melodic hardcore to my taste. And that album cover... yummy! Favorite track: Axed Away.

Rob van der Bend Its punk but so much more, can't believe this band isn't huge !. If you want to listen to punk / hardcore with brains this is your band. Favorite track: Engulfed in Flames.

Pierce Da'esigil Wow. Just really good, all around. The lyrics, the performance, the mixing, all of it.
It's refreshing to see pop punk bands using complicated meter instead of just conforming to normal pop punk standards.
Keep up the awesome work, you guys! Favorite track: Food Court Blues.

Vicious illuminating combination The one that made you feel alone Sometimes we've all fallen victim to times like these And all of this tension is expensive; wordlessness a disease The trough is swept and that's the weight of this plow baby I can't push it back Like staring into eyes that say “Please open your heart I am engulfed in flames” “Put me out again and put the flame to the wolf” Do you think they'll find out? Mad Conductor don't know you much at all Eyes glued to your phone careening off a cliff, no service in deaths abyss I can't push it back as menthol smoke pours out the front door I can't bullshit back, another Marb Black down the hatch Saw the words I know you did I know you did, Mad Conductor I know you did

Faced 02:20
This just started I'm loathing it This feeling has left me dry, cracked, peeling like arctic winds Face your inner self until it ends So violate me all this waiting So fucking high on paint we can not paint things Chose to breathe in the smog and forget about the fresh air It just started I'm losing it This feeling has left me dull, downtrodden, and sluggish To face your inner self until it ends So violate me all this waiting So fucking high on paint we can not paint things Chose to breathe in the smog and forget about the fresh air Pardon the lack of company when scenes switch at the flick of a wrist It don't feel so good to be dismissed over and over again

Axed Away 03:04
I took a trip up north to see what I could find The wolves are out Skies change from day to night much more quickly than real life I couldn't help but run it from the top Retrace my footsteps anything to get me where I was The rest is axed away, can’t say much The magic touch we all want to have Well here it is Please just leave me to isolate until I can't help myself anymore The blood drips your sword Well it's manifested into a dragon of sorts The rest is axed away, can’t say much The magic touch we all want to have You’re losing it Skies change from day to night Seems more real than life Running, jumping, creeping in Felt my stomach rumbling Where have I been? What have I done? When the sun set will set will the battle won?

Are we human or are we mall? My sign is glowing, my buns are cold Whose hat hath the least fury tonight? Who gives the least shits and still manages to get by? I say “fuck you Janice” because it’s all I can do and there ain't room for two I’ll try to convince myself none of this matters while more hungry lips will gather tonight Take long trip across the hall Are we human or are we mall? Who's that standing much to close? “Excuse me” does not intimidate the likes of this new part time mall employee I say “fuck you Janice” because it’s all I can do and there ain't room for two I’ll try to convince myself none of this matters while more hungry lips will gather If all that you wanted was to push me over you lose If all you wanted was to push me to the edge then you win I kept waiting and waiting Fallen angel spread your wings It couldn't be that bad Nowadays we both hate Jeff I see it makes you glad Fallen angel

No Cab Fare 04:40
I'm the casino that pays nothing when you win Please put your money in I have no sort of future plan I never saw myself too far in it Thinking too much never got me anywhere, it never paid for my cab fare, not once and just because I've got these slow reactions You've got this bitter twist I'm leaning over my pockets I thought about it more while Night passes far too slow when on a bench far too loaded with everyone's shit Thinking too much never got me anywhere, it never paid for my cab fare I'm thinking too much I saw around it more but Night passes far too slow it’s like a gun kept unloaded What's the fucking point? I'm like a casino that pays nothing when you win the poker game It's not how I want it it's just I have a tendency to push until the molecules break It's not my fault It's a god damn molecule breakdown I thought about it more Night passes, I could care less Close eyes, accept the nonsense

The phone doesn't ring like it did One too many days spent off the grid, if that's even possible When the hours get late I'll trade in my new life for a brand new escape I know it sounds so typical Listen closely as I walk through the halls, I know what I heard Pick up the first piece of metal I can find and walk to the front door and wait Wait for nothing to become something Wait for nothing to disappear This place doesn't feel like it did You slipped and slid across the floor like you weren't ever really there When the hours get late I'll trade in my illness just to conversate, if not I'm fucking out of here Watching closely as I walk through the halls, I know what I saw Pick up the first piece of metal I can find and walk to the back door and wait I know what I saw I know what I heard I know what I felt And I know what I burned

Nauseating 03:31
Hear that coughing it sounds like a fire This scarecrow’s straw has just expired If the birds start to pick promise me you will pay them no mind Nausea and other side effects What is that right on the other side of the glass? Is this fear just what you wanted? I know the feeling and I embrace it from time to time Is this long drive what you wanted? I know the feeling barely hanging on So when the wind starts to blow right through you you'll know that's it's coming again A boy in a car ain't your friend, never was Same old bullshit, same as you heard last year Connecting sections of things you might already hear somewhere Is this fear just what you wanted now? Is this fear just what you wanted? I know the feeling and I embrace it from time to time Is this long drive what you wanted? I know the feeling barely hanging on Barely hanging on A storm cloud steamrolled roof high Is this fear just what you wanted? Well I'll give it to you

My ears, they haven't stopped ringing for weeks So I drove around the park and I found the lot empty But four cars pull in as I turn the key And I've got things on me I don't want them to see Don't park next to me please Don't park next to me Cause I've got things I don't want you to see The skeleton in my trunk and the one in the front seat It's always a demon dressed up as a priest when I don't know you and you don't know me So maybe I'm a little bit paranoid cause I ain't here for no picnic No picnic here

Morrison 03:11
What a lovely day in the town of Morrison Bag full of some poison I slept right through miles of hot pursuit, woke up sweating an ocean Asking what we did wrong, this could be the end Well it's been a good run boys These fine lines we walk, if you stray you’ll get stuck there for good One drooling prick in the town of Morrison He hates you, you hate him Eyes locked up tight like a vault door screaming “I am coming for you” Asking what we did wrong, this could be the end Well it's been a good run man These fine lines we walk, if you stray you get stuck there for good There for good Stick to the plan, tomorrow will feel like nothing happened It will feel like any other day passing Tomorrow will feel like nothing happened Tomorrow, tomorrow will feel like Nothing ever happened and nothing ever will And that's exactly the feeling that gets some people killed So maybe something did happen and maybe something will But it's so hard to give a fuck when it isn't your blood that spilled

Do I care at all? I know how things break I won't be surprised when it happens to me, oh yeah From twisting in ways one should never twist You steamrolled me over, you'll know what I mean when it gives When it gives When will it give? It will give when it gives I don't care at all I know that shit breaks and maybe I can walk myself through the pain But I'm twisting in ways one should never twist The news mauled over and over, you'll see when it gives When it gives Claw through a part of a door that was dead bolted shut Puts us back in our place for now

Despite my hopes to live a long life I'm climbing up the gates It feels so safe already in the grave No subtle hints of screaming at myself again Was it intentional to find yourself a vegetable frying in the mix? You know I'd tell you the truth but I don't know shit Parting ways with time Parting ways with Gods among us now I’ll tell you what you want to hear just send your signals, make it clear to me Same stale sky Nothing falling on our heads tonight Stare right through, can't make the colors change for you Fall on top of everything I've made I think I like it this way A simple misdirection is the key It makes me feel like I'm not foaming at the mouth again or rotting with the best of them You know I'd tell you the truth but I don't know shit Parting ways with time Parting ways with Gods above us now
12.
I’ll stay where I want, there's no reason to leave When outside the window it gets so foggy The game is about finding your space and holding it down Don't let anyone see you cross the street Find a space, hold it down Find a space and when you leave everyone will be disappointed I tangled my own head into a web That pattern was impressive to no one but me Kids will always cross the street It's part of life, part of mine I’ll remain mobile while you find a space; hold it down Find a space Get mad at your friends when they leave I tangled my own head into a web The pattern was impressive to no one but me And when the block smells like rotten filth you know I’ll cross the street Did they pave the new sidewalk around your feet? Find a space, hold it down I tangled my own head into a web to see if it could take it Did they pave the new sidewalk around your feet?
