Everything We Know

"Everything We Know" was the final chapter of a 3-year story in which we were gigging more than ever before. In between shows, we had several failed attempts to complete a record. I personally recorded 2 albums' worth of demos, but the songs weren't really representative of where the band was at musically. So, we took another shot, and recorded an entire album with a friend, but shelved it as it just didn't feel like "us."

After all that frustrated stopping and starting, I decided it was time to fish or cut bait. We locked ourselves in an empty office space, recorded everything on our own, and handed the files over to our long-time friend and collaborator, Ryan Buzby to mix.

The result was an album of Classic Rock and Alternative-inspired songs that reflected an ever-changing lineup of musicians trying to find their sound. It's a fun listen, but we've grown and changed a lot since then acheter.

Recorded 2011 at Blind Carbon Studio
Bellmawr, New Jersey

100 Mile Wind

She said I was a demon
she said I was a cancer
she said she wanna leave me
because I been deceivin'
said baby what's your answer

Ain't nothin' but a trifle
I never been romancin'
but girl you best believe me
you don't mean nothin' to me
so baby there's your answer

So baby that's the way this is gonna roll
and if you gotta go then you gotta go
a 100 mile wind don't know where it blows
it just goes

Ain't nothin' but a hostage
I'll never pay the ransom
'cus baby nothing's free
yeah you costin' me
stop waiting for an answer

We tried to get around it
we had a million chances
but anyone can see
this will never be
so baby there's your answer

So baby that's the way this is gonna roll
and if you gotta go then you gotta go
a 100 mile wind don't know where it blows
it just goes

Another Night

another night lyrics explainer

So I'm just another
stranger or lover
make your choice and let me know

'cus I can't leave this on the table
I won't waste another night
you say forgive me I'm unable
baby not this time

Words I've hated
It's complicated
well I refuse to let this go

'cus I can't leave this on the table
I won't waste another night
You say forgive me I'm unable
baby not this time

Love is fleeting
take it or leave it
play your games when you're alone

'cus I can't leave this on the table
I won't waste another night
you say forgive me I'm unable
baby not this time

Bleed

Blast off
crash down
rest is history and doesn't
really matter now

I went up and I
came down
what they did to me I cannot
really work it out

No... oh no

Bleed
they live inside of me
bleed
won't you shoot me into space
'cus there's no hope for me
bleed
bleed
bleeding green

Get in
get out
I could make it clean if I could
just get out now

I went up and I
came down
what they did to me I never
ever worked it out

No... oh no

Bleed
they live inside of me
bleed
won't you shoot me into space
'cus there's no hope for me
bleed
bleed
bleeding green

They took me away
oh so far into space
what did they do to me
what did they take from me
They took me away
oh so far into space
what did they do to me
what did they take

Bleed
they live inside of me
bleed
won't you shoot me into space
'cus there's no hope for me
bleed
bleed
bleed for me

Dead Leaves

If only I could
show you my mind
darlin' my heart
won't be far behind

You left me alone
but that's not your crime
'cus now I will know
better next time

Even dead leaves
can turn green again
they fall off that tree
and float on that breeze
go somewhere
you never ever been

Followed that trail
of hearts you broke down
I followed it here
to this little town

Well I was the first
I'm seeing that now
But I swear I'm your last
I'm taking you down

Even dead leaves
can turn green again
they fall off that tree
and float on that breeze
go somewhere
you never ever been

Devil's Wife

She tells me that it's time to go
that's something I already know
but I came here with trouble in mind
and I will not leave that trouble behind
oh... alright

I'm tired of hearing you say
give it up and get it on and get it out
so tired of hearing you say
give it up and get along and get it out

Put your hands on the back of my neck
let your body figure out the rest
'cus baby we got nothing but time
we can leave our troubles behind
oh... alright

I'm tired of hearing you say
give it up and get it on and get it out
so tired of hearing you say
give it up and get along and get it out

Yeah baby it's a cold hard life
but you shouldn't cry no tears
'cus you're the devil's wife
and when you're married to the devil
you got nothin' to fear

I'm tired of hearing you say
give it up and get it on and get it out
so tired of hearing you say
give it up and get along and get it out

Find Myself Believing

It's a good time
for a bad decision
for closed eyes
and a lack of vision

Dead to rights
dead to wisdom
you're the devil's wife
at least you found religion

I find myself believing
in another sacred cow
another painted ceiling
that has left me looking upside down

It cleared your mind
did it clear your heart
would you take the time
to finish what you start

If you do not act
you still play a part
if you burn your home
will it break your heart

I find myself believing
in another sacred cow
another painted ceiling
that has left me looking upside down

Late at night I'm a killer angel
taking life from a million strangers
and I hear the cry of a million children
but a silent god gave me the right to kill them

I find myself believing
in another sacred cow
another painted ceiling
that has left me looking upside down

I find myself believing

If You Wanna Run

I had this feeling
last night
you were counting
up my crimes

Say I'm crazy that I'm lying
but you're saying nothing
and I know why

So if you wanna run away from me
that's just fine
if you wanna run away from me
I'll give you time
time to run

I don't own you
you're not mine
but I'll hold you
deep inside

You've got space honey
and you've got time
take all you need darlin'
I'll be fine

Close your pretty eyes
say your goodbyes
this is not what I had in mind
no this is not what we had in mind

Meant to be Us

Everyone says
Stop moving and you're dead
What if my legs are broke
And there's a hammer in your hand
Well everyone says it's green
Well you know I'd swear that it is red
Maybe my mind is broke
And there's a hammer in your hand

Call it a broken destiny
Call it a noiseless symphony
All of the reasons that I can't see
That we were meant to be
That we were meant to be us

On the South end
Of this hill I cannot defend
Baby my guns are broke
And I'm afraid to take a stand
You told me the answers
But I still don't understand
Baby my whole world is broke
and I'm afraid to take a stand

Call it a broken destiny
Won't you call it a noiseless symphony
All of the reasons that I can't see
We were meant to be
We were meant to be us

Just take it down
Where it is meant to go
Take it down
Let me see it go
Better take it down
and before you know
Take it down

We were meant to be
We were meant to be
We were meant to be us

Say What You Will

Troubled me lives here in troubled times
went and blew a whole 'nother dime
on nothing in particular

Well I got nothing I can't leave behind
but baby I don't have a lot of time
and no one in particular

Oh say what you will
just know that I can't lose
'cus I've got nothing and
it's not much use
but you've got me and baby
that's the truth
so say what you will

If you got something you think you'd believe
I could tell ya what ya really need
and believe me I'm articulate

If you got problems baby you can leave
no one's keeping you from being free
so don't be so ridiculous

Oh say what you will
just know that I can't lose
'cus I've got nothing and
it's not much use
but you've got me and baby
that's the truth
so say what you will

Somehow

Somehow
you found your way inside again
I watched you die I saw you dead
but somehow
you live

And so you're back now
but there's no room inside of me
I wiped you out and started clean
won't back down
I won't give

'Cus I just don't want to believe
that you were a part of me
but I just can't fight my way free
no...

Tear out
everything inside my head
the things you did the words you said
when you drown
I will live

'Cus I just don't want to believe
that you were a part of me
but I just can't fight my way free
no...

Well do you know what I'd do to cut you loose
even if it took me with you?
you know what I'd do to cut you loose
even if it took me with you?

'Cus I just don't want to believe
that you were a part of me
but I just can't fight my way free
no...

I just don't want to believe
No I just don't want to believe
So why can't I fight my way free
No I just don't want to believe

Wide Awake

You built yourself a pretty cage
and now you don't wanna escape
a life spent on hoping and dreaming
and I wish that I could scare you awake
but you say...
yeah you say...

That it's not my problem
I'm wide awake
with a heart that's fearless
and a sleep that's dreamless
I'm wide awake

So now we've got this beautiful enemy
and his silence keeps us both awake
we whisper that life is a nightmare
but no one wants to try and make their escape
so we say...
yeah we say...

That it's not my problem
I'm wide awake
with a heart that's fearless
and a sleep that's dreamless
I'm wide awake

Won't you try this
break this silence
why are you so afraid

Yeah it's not my problem
I'm wide awake
with a heart that's fearless
and a sleep that's dreamless
I'm wide awake
