about

These two songs are what we in the biz refer to as "b-sides." If we had a hit single or a Japanese-only release, these would be on them, but we don't have either of those, so here they are.

"Suck on Soil, Lounge Act" is a song we wrote this past summer based on a few lines of lyrics Zack had angrily scribbled in a notebook after an encounter with some dickhead (how emo!). It's about people who go through life believing they're entitled to some level of respect that no one else deserves. The title is from "The Adventures of Pete & Pete," the best show ever on television.

"I Thought You Liked to Rock" is one of the first songs we ever wrote, but we left it off of our full-length because it just didn't seem to fit the flow of the record. Still, we always liked the song, so we decided to put it out. It's about a particularly shitty decision that culminated in a particularly shitty ending.

Thanks for listening!

Track Name: Suck on Soil, Lounge Act
How many lucky breaks does it take 'til it's broken?
How many knocks on wood 'til your knuckles open?
And with your final breath
As you bleed to death
You scream, "Oh God, why me?"

'Cause you're meaningless in the scheme of things
You're a fucking nobody

How many drunken drives 'til they're dragging the river?
How many of your nine lives are gonna die with your liver?
And in your hospital bed
You'll be turning red
Screaming, "Dear God, why me?!"

'Cause you're meaningless in the scheme of things
You're a fucking nobody
Track Name: I Thought You Liked to Rock
With a heaving chest and a pounding head
(I'm alternating)
Between feeling glad to be alive and wishing I was dead
Sleepless and stuck in bed
(Medicating)
I let the phone lie next to me
And listen to her cry again

Bottoms up 'til we bottomed out
Spinning tires on the icy ground

My best defense
Would not convince
A jury of my closest friends
Wish I could tell you why I'm worth your time
But I won't lie again

I comfort myself with excuses
Try to pretend that they're not useless
Try to forget I've already used them a thousand times
And a thousand more each time I do this
I do this again

Pacing circles in the snow
Waiting for the cops to show

My best defense
Would not convince
A jury of my closest friends
Wish I could tell you why I'm worth your time
But I won't lie again

"No regrets"
Well that makes no fucking sense
'Cause if I could do it all over again I wouldn't

"No regrets"
Well that makes no fucking sense
'Cause if I could do it all over again I wouldn't

I wouldn't...

I wouldn't...

My best defense
Would not convince
A jury of my closest friends
Wish I could tell you why I'm worth your time
But I won't lie again
