"They're rough-cut and pouring their hearts out through their debut album in Sparkles, but with a neat grit and unpolished finish that borders perfectly with the DIY/indie mission statements."

"Sparkles captures them doing what they know how to do best: playing their hearts out"

Track Name: Rooftops/Fireworks
ROOFTOPS/FIREWORKS

Put your headphones on
It will hurt a little less.
Heartaches and regrets.
Fill this glass with smoke
Burn these pages down
Heartaches will still prevail over us

We’re running out of time

Things were so much easier last summer
Rooftops and fireworks
We were free and the doors were wide open
Rooftops and fireworks

I’m singing in a bloody rusty microphone
Trying to find a meaning, something to hold on to
Just look at the fire in my eyes
5 AM is ringing at the door of this city
Nothing's left except sincerity

Give me one last chance to say

Things were so much easier last summer
Rooftops and fireworks
We were free and the doors were way open
Rooftops and fireworks
I never thought that we could drown so deep
But my friend we did.
If it's a dream than I beg you to let me sleep
Because I've never felt so alive

I’ve lost so much I'm running out of things to lose
How much longer can we swim against the current?
How long will it take before it all breaks down?
Track Name: Lansing,MI
LANSING,MI

There's so much hatred in my heart
So many things you could've said
So many things you should've done
Now I'm out here all alone
And I can't get out of this town
No I can’t get out of this town
I can't believe the words you said
I can't believe that it's all dead
It was so great but now it's over
This whole story is absurd
And I can't get out of this town
But I shall get out of this town
Sometimes it's ok to leave and never look back
We could stare at each other's eyes over again and over again
And you could tell me how it will be alright over again and over again
You changed your mind so easily
I just think that you couldn’t see
The things you used to say you love
So you've hurt both of us
Don't tell me that you've changed
And that I stayed the same
When you just got lost when you were away.
You used to say that we were anchors
But with you I was flying
Now I'm drowning so deep
And I can't eat or sleep
This world has turned to black
And I don’t want to come back
I am never going home.
You could tell me how everything has changed in the blink of an eye
And I could tell you how painful it is to slowly die
Tomorrow morning, I'll wake up with a pain in my head that won't erase the pain in my chest. If Lansing was wrong, I'd drive straight off the edge and I'd choose love over logic.
Track Name: Breaking Good
BREAKING GOOD

Look at this mess, I never thought we could leave this place
The winter’s over there’s nothing that could wipe this smile off my face

Have you seen the sun? Can you feel it burn?
Is it me or those hearts are getting warmer?
Have you seen my eyes? Can you see them shine?
They are not jaded like they used to be, when you saw me
Last January I was a wreck, I didn’t expect to get out of this hell

The ghosts are finally gone, your eyes in the morning is shinning on
Everything is perfect, right here in this moment.
I wish that it could last forever, but I’m not a fool,
I’m not taking this for granted anymore.

I’ve got lost, but now I’m found
Just call me up, when you feel down
I could pick you up, and we could drive around
This same old town and we could curse the past
And think about who we really want to be.
I’m sick and tired of this
I could pick you up, and we could drive around
This same old town and we could curse the past
And think about who we really want to be.
Track Name: Sacrecoeur
SACRECOEUR

Lost in the cracks of the sidewalk
Where I used to fall
I've never got any scars, just bruises
That have faded away, with the days
Now my memory's all that's left of those moments
The bitterness that always comes around
When I get back in this town
I've seen your face
The sparkles in your eyes
The quivering in your voice
When you told me
''I can't remember why did we leave in the first place.
I am wistful when I think about what we had''
I hate everything you've become
And the hardest lesson learned is to let go
The things you used to say you would die for
But now you can't get them anymore
You've lost it all along the way
It's sad, my friend, but it's okay.
If I had the courage to fight these addictions,
I would be free and clear
Anywhere but here is a better place to breath
How does it feel to know
That after all this time
Your ghost doesn’t haunt me anymore.
My heart, my liver, my head;
I fucked them all up this last year
My heart, my liver, my head;
I fucked them all up this last year
And every single street from that town has changed
And every single thing that I loved is gone.
So I am doomed to relive the past
Until I find somewhere that I could call my home.
Track Name: Distember
DISTEMBER

You were there all alone.
You were smiling it was perfect.
Then I woke up from my sleep,
To realize you’re further than it seems.
I was there, all alone
In my room, with nothing else to do.
But think about all the things we said
And how fucked up things can get in our heads
There’s no wall between us anymore
And this fall, is coming faster than before
You know that I am scared sometime
When I can’t read your mind
You’ve got to leave the past behind
Wait for it and you will find
That I love you more
Everyday, even when you’re away
We were there, together
Holding hands, watching the sunset
And our hearts are beating faster
As I realize you’re closer than it seems.
Track Name: It's Like Shawshank Redemption, But Way Better
IT'S LIKE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, BUT WAY BETTER

Take me back to the same places where I've been before
To make me realize that I'm a better man
And this world is constant mess
But I guess we don't own anything but ourselves
And when we die, we die alone.

Can you remember when I drove you to the airport?
You said it’s so predictable that it’ll fall apart
But have you seen us now ?
We're watching our demons running away
Knowing they'll comeback someday
We'll chase them again anyway.

I keep screaming your name in the dark
I've tried so many times
to figure this out
on my own
and I know that we all die alone

I've been rambling around for years
My friends and I know how it feels
To have a broken heart
And our broken bones can sometimes barely move
But somehow someday it just feels right
And it's in those times that we spent the best nights

And I would like to be the one that wipe the glower off your face

I keep screaming your name in the dark
I've tried so many times
to figure this out
on my own
and I know that we all die alone
but I cannot live this life alone.

Hold my hand this is the great escape
Yeah the best one.
I don't even like to call it that way.
It's just how I see it all.
Track Name: Blade Blues
BLADE BLUES

You were so scared when I met you,
You couldn’t trust your face was blue
But I’ve seen something more than fear
My friends said I was making a mistake
But you know that from the start
I’ve just always followed my heart
I see you running
I see you running out of blood
With my heart out of my chest, it’s getting hard to do my best
It’s hard to cross the river,
When the bridges have been burned out
You have to swim, otherwise you’ll get caught by the undertow
There’s one thing I’m sure : I won’t leave this place.
Even if my words fail to dry your tears
I’ll stand with you till pain disappears
I see you running
I see you running out of blood
With my heart out of my chest, it’s getting harder to do my best
It’s hard to believe that we’re still here
There’s blood all over me and I keep on fighting
Maybe, I’m the problem.
Maybe, I’m my own worst enemy.
There’s blood all over me.
Track Name: Oh My Snare!
OH MY SNARE!

There’s a place where I feel safe
A place, where all your demons subside
And I want to take you there,
I want to show you Oh My Snare!
Tonight.

I get down on my knees
And I’m begging please :
Believe me when I say that I won’t fuck this up.
Cuz I can swear that I won’t fuck it up.
You know this feeling when the wind can knock you out,
And there’s nothing you can do.

I’ll follow you, I’ll calm you down,
I’ll sing the night, I’ll whisper the day.
I’ll be there when you need me.
I’ll cross my fingers for a warmer winter,
Don’t cross your arms, don’t follow their steps,
I guess that they grew cold, and they’ll never smile again.

I get down on my knees, once again
And I’m begging please :
Believe me when I say that I won’t fuck this up.
Please tell me that you won’t fuck it up
You know this feeling when the wind can knock you out,
And there’s nothing you can do,
No there’s nothing else to do other than
Sing these songs of hope, and hope these moments will last.

I made promises to myself
To never give up again
Even if you say it’s worthless
And it could really hurt I guess.

We’ve got a war on fear, we’ve got a war on hate, we’ve got a war inside.
We’ve got a war for friends, we’ve got a war for love, we’ve got a war inside.
Track Name: S.N.T.D.
S.N.T.D.

All the things you’ve said, but never really meant.
I’m sorry but this was not supposed to be the plan.
We used to walk together in the same direction.
Now with your back against the wall, will you make any actions?

All the things I’ve said, but never really meant.
I’m sorry but I’m not going anywhere
I wish I could close my eyes
Or at least do something for you

Bury me with all your friends
Crushing me with the things I’ve said.
It’s not a party, you guys all look dead.
I’ve lost my naivety, in this cold city.
Everything was so beautiful, before you dug it down in snow.

You are digging your own grave.
You don’t listen to me, I’m a kid and I know nothing at all.
It’s sad to see you there.
I’ll leave you where the snowline is drawn
I know, it’s hard to leave.

Bury me with all your friends
Crushing me with the things I’ve said.
It’s not a party, you guys all look dead.
I’ve lost my naivety, in this cold city.
Everything was so beautiful, before you dug it down in snow.
Track Name: Last On My Lips
LAST ON MY LIPS

I’d like to write a letter
A couple of lines just to feel better
Dying people talk about death
Grey walls in this hospital
Do you ever think about the day that I’ll be gone?
What will you say? Where will you run?
There are so many useless things that I think of
You wouldn’t believe it.
When you’re lying in this bed,
Every important thing starts to shine
Do you ever think about the day that I’ll be gone?
What will you say? Where will you run?
The things that you love are shining on
Tell me where will you run
The things you love are still there
I’m still here we can go anywhere
I thought I’d see you again
Under the glow of the city lights
But everything is fleeting
And I miss you more than I could believe
Do you ever think about the day that I’ll be gone?
Will you crumble and fall ? Or feel nothing at all ?
The things that you love are shining on
Tell me where will you run
The things you love are still there
I’m still here we can go anywhere
