Jonathan van Dyck Whole album is super catchy, great groovy patterns, lyrically I think this is their best album. There's a bit more instrumental in this one than others which I think suits it. Favorite track: Mock.

Tony Seale Yall make me feel like im not alone, like yall understand. I hurt so much inside almost everyday and yall give me the strength to keep going, the strength to wake up in the morning, the peace i find at night comes from putting my head phones in and listening to all your songs. i have reason to keep fighting. ; ) Favorite track: Nerve.

Smile 03:06
know its been a while but I will not fake this stupid smile ‘cause you robbed me, fed me the line Your bounty was me took all you could see And worked just side by side The trust and love we’d abide Until you left home thrust with the tide And put this hate back inside my eyes Are you blocking all the things that have to do with me? Is it easier now, do you feel any release? Tell me how you fit in and where do you begin? Do you toast when they toast? Do you sin when they sin? Stepped through your place Lust in my eyes toyed with deceit Planted your lies Play it off well, say that I’m fine Do I hold that small space in your mind? Stuck in your web flailing my arms Trying to break loose from your charm Split up your mind do you some harm No stranger to harm How can I see anyone anymore? And how can I feel anything anymore?

Heavy Gloom 02:49
I know all your flaws and most of your fears I haven’t been home a lot in the last 2 years The constant absence from all my peers The vibration still steady inside my ears And I know you hate it, I always restate it But I’m still so frustrated cause I’m the one you cheated It cuts so much deeper Why would I wanna see her? Only had one beer And I don’t wanna sleep here I hope you feel that heavy gloom When you’re all done up in a crowded room And your life trips up over those shoes That you paid too much for but not in dues And I’ll be watching from a distance Wouldn’t wanna miss this Was it fake the whole time? Was it just instance? Man it’s so personal yet it’s business I want it to hit so close to home It cuts so much deeper Why would I wanna see her? Only had one beer And I don’t wanna sleep here And I know you don’t care You’ve made it so clear Swore I had no fear Not until you came near And how much does it cost to get you back here inside those clubs that you love so fucking much? Was I too harsh in my lament to you that I fell so out of touch? Back and forth because I can’t understand how you Control all my lust and form the words on my tongue It cuts so much deeper Why would I wanna see her? Only had one beer And I don’t wanna sleep here And I know you don’t care You’ve made it so clear Swore I had no fear Not until you came near It cuts so much deeper Why would I wanna see her? Only had one beer And I don’t wanna sleep here And I know you don’t care

Distaste 03:15
Tell me how your life’s played out down south in the sun Missing school so you go out every night and try to have fun And you still deny and try to hide the smoke from your gun Think I’ll slip inside and start making you aim at everyone Why’d you leave it? Is it because what I chose? Can you look in my face and explain why you put someone else in my place? And I don’t wanna hear about your trips And all the time that you waste No I’d rather not I hate the thought It’s such a distaste I’ll never match your thievery as far as this goes You can’t say you never fucked with me cause everyone knows And why you always poison everything I try to grow? Calm somehow but rising now someday I’ll let you know Don’t hold much respect for you now What did you expect to see? Don’t need to accept your ways now Go be who you wanna be

Solo 02:37
When you’re up north the ice is slick like my voice She’s like “I never left you, this was all your choice” I can’t doubt it now I might lose all my poise When I mislead you on purpose and fade into the void Feeling indigo How ‘bout you? I feel indigo And I wish you’d just call, and we could hash it out I could tell you what I’m so mad about Bet you’re sick of hearing me sulk and pout had so much on my mind ‘til now Like when we gonna do this, the where and how and if I see you am I gonna curse you out Is it enough that I’m up right now? Does it anger you that I chose a different route? Cause I’m sick of hearing that I’m late Tired of having to restate “I can’t just sit around and wait, you’re just not someone I can date” Now look who can’t hold their weight I hope I’m wrong just for your sake Using pills and flowers to sedate Find me heal me keep my faith You have to know every place I go That feeling stuck that I offered trust and it left me solo And if I haven’t grown from every face I’ve known, Is it all for not? Is that food for thought? There’s things you don’t know I feel indigo, you’ve got what I need I’m indigo, you’ve got what I need You’re not what I need

Mock 03:30
How can I just break it off to leave for good and never talk I’m about to write it up for you to mock And clear my mind for the thousandth time I’ve been too involved to call it off Been away for so long all I’ve got are weak foundations, wishful thoughts And all around a greater view How do you think that that’s okay? To still like all the things I play? To still try not to walk my way? I taught you all those things to say And its nothing like it used to be There’s no more of what I used to see But you help me with my honesty While I’m yelling at your ghost

How You Are 03:45
Gone now I keep my distance But still show persistence in trying to find out how you are It’s really testing my patience watching you waste this Life that you have of yours in a bar And I get the feeling that you’re gonna leave him ‘cause you just can’t seem to get off You’re so appealing, you can get anyone that you want somehow Patience is useless when I’m sober and you’re wasted And you don’t wanna hear it so go on just leave it And I count the times that I’m driving home And I’m talking to myself like I’m not alone Trying to figure to out who I’ve been running from Gotta figure out who I’ve been running from Calm down, can’t we get level? Can’t we be civil? We share a lot of things And yeah I think back when it was simple Before I had earned some, and all I ever did was sing Been caught under pressure trying to measure how I feel ‘bout this whole thing You’re so appealing, you can get anyone that want somehow I keep my distance now Forcing my jaw to smile
7.
Nerve 03:08
Hard shove feel the heavy weight It’s the same love that I push away It be the same thing I always debate Why you left me here for another These days I tend to see red ‘cause all the women swimming in my head Are not the same ones laying in my bed But I do my best to ignore it But you still come up It’s all in my head, there’s not much I can do You set your pace, I’ll keep mine too Each time I chase, I feel dark blue Confuse your face for someone new I guess I owe you for most everything Like the way I feel and the curse you bring You got a lot of nerve to wanna hear me sing After you tossed us into the gutter Mad now like I was before ‘cause somebody’s always asking who I do it for But I don’t wanna do it for you anymore I do my best to ignore it Yeah I should let you go Away from the grey that we both know And I can’t pass through Indio Without feeling indigo Yeah I should let this go But it gets so hectic on my own You can’t be proud if I’m alone

Phantom 02:32
It’s harder to attract you Used to dye your denim in my parent’s bathroom I can feel your phantom All of me is dark blue Picture you just dancing, dancing in your old room Damn it’s such a bad view ‘cause it’s hard to attract you Got me so dark blue
9.
Scowl 02:31
Tell me did you practice what you said to me Was never there when I was supposed to be Is that supposed to be some kind of joke to me? Leave home, tour hard, then we’ll see Change up your face, attempt to erase But you’ll never feel the void in my space I’m off, off this bad taste Wasting my time in one place When you left you ruined your name for me I wear a scowl so that they can always see Nowhere near where I wanna be Grinding all my teeth again Attract to me come back to me I’m waiting on you so patiently Someday soon I hope to see That you’re feeling indigo way down in your soul It’s all facade, it has to be You’re planning on it so carefully Let a couple years roll by, bet we come back to this again
10.
Stalemate 03:14
Hard to clench my fist well with all the things I should tell Tension and an ill will towards you and I It’s not the same as you feel it used to be a light teal But that shade was never real for you and I Can’t ignore, won’t ignore That I just don’t know you anymore Can’t ignore, won’t ignore That which you played me for You know how hard that I fell Hazy every detail about who cared the most When it comes to you and I I never thought that you’d bail I guess I let it go stale My blood is always hot when it comes to you and I You want him like you wanted me But I know that it’s not the same thing Covet what you cannot bring I won’t calm down I’ll never let it be
