WE RELEASED THIS NEW SONG TODAY. DOWNLOAD IT FOR FREE ON BANDCAMP!
This week, it was my turn to choose which song to release from the album. I chose “Wired” because it’s the title track of the album and I love how this song came together. To me, the bridge captures a lot of the raw emotion that this whole album expresses throughout. I hope you enjoy it.

lyrics

Lyrics:
Here’s a weather update of my mind. 
It’s raining with grey skies all the time. 

I turned on the news only to find 
that the world is crumbling right before my eyes. 
But what can I do to quell our demise 
when I’m just another number waiting in line? 

I woke up this morning haunted by my dreams. 
It got me to realize I just can’t believe 
a thing I see in those damn romantic comedies. 

I turned on the news only to find 
that the world is crumbling right before my eyes. 
Maybe curiosity isn’t what it’s all made out to be. 

Maybe just not for me. I don’t want it to be. 

Is it wrong that I feel guilty all the time? 
Well I’m wired off coffee, I’ll be up all night. 

I turned on the news only to find 
that the world is crumbling right before my eyes. 
I’m selfish and anxious, I’m barely alive. 
I really must be losing my mind. 

I’m starting to realize that I’m running out of time. 
And I’m starting to believe I may have lost my only light. 
So send me back into the night.

The 24th Flavor

I chose The 24th Flavor because it’s something the three of us, and many other friends, have bonded over in multiple ways. It’s incredibly fun to play live and I thoroughly enjoy the crowd reaction as we play it. I’d like to keep this blurb short and sweet, just like Bray ;), so let me wrap this up by saying I hope everyone out there enjoys this song as much as all we all do. 

Btw if you’re wondering: The 24th Flavor = Dr. P + The Admiral

Lyrics:

lyrics

I missed the deadline by a matter of days. 
How can hearts be so delayed? 
And now i sit up all night alone wondering 
if and when you’ll come home, but I gave up my right to know. 

Take, Take, Take me home tonight 
and maybe I can change your mind. 

Regret to my right, selfishness to my left. 
They’re telling me to take that next step right off the ledge. 
And guess what they said next? 
That “you’re already dead, yeah you’re already dead.” 

Take, Take, Take me home tonight 
and maybe I can change your mind. 

If I were to die tonight you’d be the one I’d call. 
Just to hear your voice one last time before my final curtain falls. 
And as I drift away you’d make me feel less afraid. 
But I don’t think you’d bother to pick up your phone at all. 

Just don’t write me off.

Bray - Dial Tone

The first song to be released off of our upcoming full length, “Wired”. Check it out, head over to our Bandcamp for a FREE download if you like it, and of course, feel free to share it with anyone and everyone you know! 

Biting nails so low that skin is ripping from bone.

The pain helps to cope with wanting to be alone.

The lights are on but no one’s home.

My phone’s off the hook just to hear the dial tone.

The nails I swallow can’t digest,

like regret filling my head that won’t lay to rest.

I dress to impress everyone but myself.

I’m sick of always being last to get a trophy on the shelf.

No one can reach me. My nail beds are bleeding

from the thought of breaking the news. Oh well, I’ll just play my blues

over and over in my head. Staying up all night in my bed.

Packing my life in a car. Heading home where wounds can scar.

The nails I swallow can’t digest,

like regret filling my head that won’t lay to rest.

I dress to impress everyone but myself.

I’m sick of always being last to get a trophy on the shelf.

I’m so sick of this.

I’m so sick.
