This is our first release.
Projected to be a Split Record, we ended up bringing that baby home after our friends EL PATRON broke up by the end of the recording process. Extended through the course of four short months, this project became an anthem to all that would happen in the wake of the 2012 maple spring. We couldn't have guessed for a better a title than ''Melee''...

Track Name: Amber
Where do you go when there's no one you know there?

The fog, the night, the street again.
A 20$ bill and a purse in her hand.
She had left Hastings on her way to something
But these Broad Streets have offered nothing.
The betterness she had in mind
Something that she never finds.
A peace and a state that seems out of mind.
Out of the fog and out of the night
Finally a face she could recognize.

The message is not the same
Conditions have changed
I feel better now that
You're here by my side.
Now take my hand
And make it right.
Tell me that everything's going to be alright
We'll make it right, alright?

Where do you go when there's no one you know there?

Some days, perspective's not enough.
She stayed on my couch for quite some time now.
She opened up enough to let herself let go.
«Life on the street is never really fun.
It's like being far from home and everybody's gone.
Naked and stranded by the barrel of a gun.
You don't even get to appreciate the sun.»
She told me all along, on the couch, the light on.

The message is not the same
Conditions have changed
I feel better now that
You're here by my side.
Now take my hand and make it right.
Tell me that we'll stand the test of time.
Track Name: Shame On You
Over desks by grey peoples
The rules are set by their leaders
Followers, who’s leading you
Who gives you the truth
You believe into
Lucky ones can't realize
They all seem to be paralyzed

Things that are shown
Are to increase fear
Thought control
Their main weapon is
Now wars are created
And war funds are raising
We all now feel safe
With the whole neighborhood armed

This is just a nice place to live
Feeling safe with that piece on my hand, no
With the greediness the triggers are pulled
You made me and my brothers murderers

Open your eyes
You can do more
This is no dream
Every life’s worth much more
Living and dying,
fighting and killing people like you
what the fuck you think you do
Track Name: One Day At A Time
Doesn’t it ever seem so cruel?
This world is cold, full of fuckin’ abuse.
It’s like all there was ever to do
Is buy shits and forever consume.

Making myself alright,
I’m taking my life one day at a time.
The nicest things are not hard to find
Just got to take life one day at a time.

We’ve all seen the misery.
We’ve seen it all on our TV.
But we go on now with our day.
I don’t let it,
let it affect me.

Making myself alright
I kick my feet and I open wide.
A TV screens the world.
On display, nothing is right at the end of the day.
Nothing is right anymore, more, more...

I shut my eyes and I hear the news.
Images I see send me so confuse.
The world can crash, collide or die,
I know I will sleep,
I will sleep tonight.
Track Name: Ignorance Day
Today is a day of celebration
Let's across America drink to this
There's finally a holiday
For everyone to celebrate
Thanx cuz
We all believe in you
Thinking that money
Brings us happiness
Thanx God
We all believe in you
Now we must think it's good
To bomb our peers

I'm so proud of everyone
There's no more reasons
To stay divided
Cuz everybody gets united
On Ignorance Day

Thank you system for being so fair
The space between social classes is
Now spread wide
Thank the media for showing us the truth
Lets celebrate our nice democracy
Bring all these idiots to the ballot boxes

And now I'm walking through the door
I could be crawling on the floor
With all the media with the focus on the hill
A fucking fashion show

I'm so proud of everyone
There's no more reasons
To stay divided
Cuz everybody gets united
On Ignorance Day
Track Name: Yeah Yeah
I'm sitting here by myself
The sun is shining but I can't tell
What's wrong with me, what does people see
I don't give a shit about what they think

I'm hanging around in my own town
The fucking neighbourhood I've seen it all
I got to say that I need to go
Take me to some area that I don't know
Let's go!

Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Everytime I look around
It feels like a nose bleed
I see my friend buddy
He doesn't know how to read
It doesn't hurt but it don't feel right
Commiseration
I see my friend buddy
I know he got a book
But he's never gonna be able to read
Track Name: Driven
Driven by this dream I had
To be on stage and drive you wild
Punkrock saved my life
Starting from that first album in summer class.
Punk in drublic was all I had,
with 'Liars' and 'Anarchy in the UK'
and 'Problems' on some B-Side.
That's when I thought
«This simply is the best thing I have».
But then one night I was just so sad.
Sixteen and fucked, just awakening on society.
I was freaking .
Tonight's the night I'm gonna die.
Right there I thought «Why wouldn't I?»
Sunday's jam kept me alive.
So here we are, we're playing live.

When all your world goes crashing down
And desperate you're on the ground.
There'll always be that song
To remind you
You're not alone

We all wonder what life's about
We'd all want to shut it loud
Break all the rules and just
Bring Happiness to kill Distress.
Your head it hurts, you overturn.
This final cut, play it and burn.
Did you make it count past the average?
Not even close to kids your age.
Your mind just doesn't have a ground.
You're living off and out of bound.
There's too many wrongs in which you don't belong.
You played it wrong.
No matter what you live on now
Don't get me wrong, I know you're strong.

When all your world goes crashing down
And desperate you're on the ground.
There'll always be that song
To remind you
You're not alone

You want something more than the American dream
You want something more for your life and kids
You want something more for your daily needs
You want something more than this American Greed.

When all your world goes crashing down
And desperate you're on the ground.
There'll always be that song
To remind you
You're not alone
Track Name: Hospital
I need to go to the hospital
Where crazy folks sleep on the floor
I think my heart just need a break

I grab my keys hump in the car
I want to drive till the light of dawn
I hope that they find what it takes

Pull me behind a curtain
Just plug me on a machine
I want to know what’s happening
I need to know what’s happening

I must go to the hospital
Where hours flow like nowhere at all
I think my heart's about to break

I keep on waiting for a call
I can't stay here but I can't go far
I feel lousy and weak

Pull me behind a curtain
Just plug me on a machine
I want to know what’s happening
I need to know what’s happening

Because sometimes it's like you're crazy
You need someone but no one is there
Because sometimes it's like you’re crazy
You want to throw it all up in the air

I want to know what’s happening
I need to know what’s happening

I've been to the hospital
Where crazy folks sleeps on the floor
There's nothing to do
You just have to wait.
