observation deckfrom our EP "songs we rarely play poorly" you can kiss me at the top of the observation deck when I can't look down and hands are already wet I can see from here I will never be ready for what comes next will you hold my hand when I am at the bottom of the Mariana Trench? when we are surrounded by freaks and wrecks hang out long enough down here and we will be cleaning up a mess but will you stay with me when the day to day becomes drudgery, and the logic and magic falls out of our routine
get awayOur new single from the EP 'exits and headlines"

repairedit was 4 years ago now that she left he spent the first month in the house until the food ran out I guess that she really didn't care he's kinda over it now, but not repaired it was just a little something to turn the day around I wound spun out here curled up on the bed waiting for the day to end I guess from some mistakes no one is ever spared I am cleaning up the debris, but not repaired you know I tired so hard to push the bad things out I heard my bones snap and crack when I hit the ground now maybe I should be the one who's scared because nothing works the same since it's been repaired
stairs (3 states part 2)
stairs (3 states part 2)fell off a satellite into your back yard seems I wondered off-I didn't know how far 'cause I slid through the stairs got wrapped in the cords seems I lost the charts and fell over the stars there are angry aliens in my blood they won't go away or shut up there are plastic bags in the trees wrappers and empties I slid through the silt got stuck in the sand but I'm face down when you left with The dirt and dried leaves and the sun through the trees it seems the comets have crashed and I can't back I couldn't crawl that far and the uplink is down watched you disappear through the stars while I am stuck on the ground without you without you without you

sun dogsThe summer sun cascades and collides off the sand and sweat while the sun dogs split and divide a perfect summer sky, and yet Lost in that yellow haze and halo and all of that numbing fog a blood warm falling glow tumbling again with the sun dogs your eyes sparkle and shine when your hand was mine running to the car in the downburst stuck together for better and worse now your eyes are as cold as ice in this january cold and like waves on white seas the drifts rise and collaspe did we bury the sun beneath the snow? It's a little too late when we are stuck here together with no place left to go your eyes sparkle and when you hand is no longer in mine did I lose you in all that numbing fog? dreaming of what used to be and the sun dogs. written by B.

blue eyeshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsmOhX9UeaM blue eyes Hey hey blue eyes when you kiss me on the mouth With the thunderheads building in the west and It looks like we are heading south It’s the angle of descent It’s the speed of the fall It’s the velocity of the trajectory that Will make me love you just that little more Hey hey blue eyes when you kiss me on the cheek Under these clear skies with your bags already packed And you’re heading out It looks like you are already gone It’s the grade of ascent It’s the speed of the crawl It’s the frequency of the monotony That will make me miss you just that little more - See more at: http://www.lesserhasbeensmusic.com/not_really_sure_yet/#sthash.KlYqgFbM.dpuf
sea and sand
sea and sandWell, the sight of sea and sand is a lifetime away because the view just ain't the same down the driveway and the parking ramp humidity and rental cars weren't that pretty up close or now by this far We've run out of things to say and there's less and less to save Shit storms and raised voices I guess we all have our choices and What I don't regret is what you will resent Blink your eyes and 12 years are gone and we'll never know who was wrong Slippery Slopes and liquid hopes there's a difference in how we cope So it comes down to you and I Please remember on this type of ending No one waves good bye - Written by B.Rolle and published by lesserhasbeensmusic, 2013.

10 Reasons To Stay Awake
10 Reasons To Stay AwakeWrapped in 10 sheets of notebook paper I sat in the dark I wrote this down I lost the lines and the margins but I think finally found the cause and the defects- the unprescribed uses and the rejects holding hands with your disappointment and the side effects Well, these things kinda of come and go but it's hard to find your way out when you are in a hole there are too many trapdoors slide down when the sun, a smile, and upside just can't be found "Let's raise a glass to my self control see it pass it out and crawling helpless on the floor**" There are 10 reasons to stay awake but I can only make it to 4, and I am sorry sweetheart, but I struggle with settling scores.... written by B.Rolle, published by lesserhasbeensmusic 2013, all rights reserved - See more at: http://www.lesserhasbeensmusic.com/little_scar/#sthash.5XQFZWU0.dpuf

0 in 50 in 5 She said today is the last day anything I feel for you just disappears into your black haze because you left me know where to go when you are this down for so many days in a row standing in the car port I can feel the autumn cold If I count the number of fuck ups and mishaps over the last five years I have already been alone Well, the account is on zero if you are looking for more try ‘Cause I am empty and it's time to say good bye Five years of riding the serpent and I am tired and I am spent I am sorry you got eaten by the darkness but I can no longer fix this mess written by B.Rolle published by lesserhasbeenmusic 2013, all rights reserved - See more at: http://www.lesserhasbeensmusic.com/little_scar/#sthash.5XQFZWU0.dpuf
small leakHere's the first song off the new EP "thistle" small leak The momentum we have built is gone we are listing to one side and there's something wrong further inspection found something too small to see a break in the barriers just a small leak Now one side needs a change and the other side is worn And what felt like commitment has you feeling torn what we guess at but never really speak ends in pointed fingers; passed blame; on the side of road over the small leak I tried to keep this together tho' I was I warned but like frog notices just a too late the water is warm I held back this flood with my finger in this dike but there's too much here to stop now no matter how I try i have run out of faith to make this leap the pressure is building; the time is up- I want the lifeboat w/o the small leak All songs written by B.Rolle and published by lesserhasbeensmusic, 2014
