NameIsNotRelevant Extremely awesome. I saw them live and have loved them since. Intricate guitar mixed with heartfelt lyrics just make it one of my favorite albums in general. Favorite track: Crying at Disneyland.

Track Name: The Halo Effect
i took so long
to get to you
now that i know
the kind of life i'd like to choose

because of you (x3)
i want the truth

when i'm in bed
but i can't sleep
i took three years
to bring my head out of my dreams

and into you
i'm into you
and into you
i want the truth

i want to taste
i want to touch
i want to feel ur love
i want it all
i want it now
i want to figure it out
Track Name: Ms. U
take the everest trail
LA New York
how do you know what's real?
how do you know?

ms. u
I miss you
i miss u
i do
miss u
I miss u
assumed I miss you?
i do

hands in my head
my hollow heart
still in my chest
feeling it all
falling asleep
in my car
my heart

ms. u
I miss you
i miss u
i do
miss u
I miss u
assumed I miss you?
i do
Track Name: Crying at Disneyland
and what is wrong with this picture?
counterintuitive to believe it
why do i feel so held back?
i'm too confused to even ask

oh you
in bloom

why do my knees shake?
why, won't you
break down?
burn it down
burn it please
burn it now
break down

and here i find it hard to breathe
when ur heart is a rusted machine
i crave ur smile and ur touch
but the water still keeps rising up

to you.
how soon?

do ur knees shake?
why, won't you
break down?
burn it down
burn it please
burn it now
break down

how do you know what's real?
how do you know it's true?
all of these images,
meant to confuse you.
Track Name: Sidewalks
do you know who you are?
do you know where ur going?
it's so F****ing hard
just not knowing

why can't
we go back to
the school where
we first met
after class
on Sunset
walk the streets to The Junction

what are you going through?
why don't you come back?

do you want to go out
to the los angeles lights?
i'll kiss you on the mouth
sleep in the back of my mind

why can't
you come back to
the town where
we first met
after class
the sun sets
walk the streets to The Junction

cracked sidewalks
sleeping palms
on the hours

Track Name: On Time :(
my head is the ocean
and you are the waves
because ur stayin right there
but i always change

believe me when i say
that ur love holds worth
sometimes you know you gotta try
but it hurts

it burns, this time
always on time
so hard to believe
i don't know what's right
but i'lll try

ur heart is the thunder
and i am the rain
you know i'm stayin right here
but you'll never change

why do we have to fight
if nothing is real?
i guess it's just so goddamn
subjective to the ways that we feel

when we feel we're right
but what can I do?
just because i believe it
doesn't make it true.
