Oh, your life is a tidal wave
and mine’s a splintering home.

Let’s go to Miami
and uproot our troubles
with hurricanes.
Let’s go.

Who needs doors and windows anyway?
You always see through me
like I’m naked, or lacquered in shame, or
like I’m wearing my skin inside-out.

I’m a Hellraiser.
Momma gave birth to a natural disaster.
I’m a cantankerous archangel
bottling defiant souls.
I keep your essence confined
in an air tight Holy Grail.
One of these days
I’m going to punch a hole in your chest
and free your blood
from its repetitious route.
My jailbar ribs
keep our hearts from colliding.

Let’s go to Miami
and uproot our troubles
with open arteries.
Let’s go.

Death by collision,
it’s such a cliché.
Instead let’s drain our futile pain.

"This is a newer band made up of OG punk/hardcore kids from Texas. They put on a super energetic and interactive live show, thanks to their insane singer. Really fun to watch, and a great homage to the punk/DIY scene from ten years ago. They’re just getting started and already doing a bunch of rad stuff." - Sarah Saturday (Warped Tour Booking Agent) ... more
