Trevor This is rock the way rock should be. Reminiscent of the golden age of 90's alt rock, the songwriting is thoughtful and not at all trite. The grooves groove, the hooks hook, and there's no garbage filler. Favorite track: Future Me.

Strangers 03:05
Is it worth it, I don't know To feel good for a minute or an hour or so If I want a little more Do I have enough to score? Or wait. Until. It's over. Or wait. Until. It's over. It's a waste, a waste Its the point I know There's a stranger in my house Can she tell me what my life's all about There's a stranger in my veins Can she help to ease the pain Or wait. Until. It's over. Or wait. Until. It's over. It's a waste, a waste It’s the point I know

Tell me why should I refuse, When I don't wanna choose Is it cause I won't lie to you? Is it cause I won't lie to me? So tell me why you… Have to leave Tell me why you… Notice me Is it cause I? Have nothing Or I’m just no fun at all If I could… Then why should I return? Is it cause I won’t lie to you?
Is it cause I won’t lie to me? Tell me why you… Have to leave Tell me why you… Notice me Is it cause I? Have nothing Or I’m just no fun at all You don't want anyway, that I've always been a part of You don't want anyway, so you can always look down So tell me why you… Is it cause I? Have nothing Or I’m just no fun at all Cause I’m just no fun at all.

All I want - to have it all You fought it once, but it won't fall You lost it once, but it's around You're holding on, through the sound You'll lose it all not to be found You're holding on, through the sound I've never held as much as anybody else I'd like to know just what it means Lost your voice, it fits you well Told me once, I'll never tell I'm feeling good but it never lasts I can't keep up, with what I'll never have You lost it once, but it's around You're holding on, through the sound You'll lose it all not to be found You're holding on, through the sound I’m feeling good I’m feeling fine It never lasts It never… I'm feeling good but it never lasts I can't keep up, with what I'll never have I've never held as much as anybody else I'd like to know just what it means

Future Me 03:07
I don't want to see another face around me. You're included too. This is just a game that I think I am playing. I don't want to lose. This is just a reason for me not to be here You should leave me too This is just a game that I think I am playing I don't want to lose Don’t wanna lose. Don’t wanna lose. Let go of me. Let go of me. And if you don't, I won't forgive the words you spoke. And if you tell me you won’t forgive me… Cause I’m fearing the future me. Fearing the future me. I don't want to see another face around me You're included too This is just a game that I think I am playing I don't want to lose I don't want to be with you. You don't want to be with me.

Mercy Rule 04:17
You should know… That I will. That I can’t. That I won't. It's a trick it seems, to believe in me in me. Holding on to things that I don't want to lose Makes it hard for something new Try to find the words that speak to how I really feel Anything to make it real. It's a shame, to want to get away But the trick it seems, to believe in me Holding on to things that I don't want to lose Makes it hard for something new Try to find the words that speak to how I really feel Anything to make it real. Can't you see the loss? Not a shame at all. Can't you see my faults? Not a shame at all. Holding on to things that I don't want to lose Makes it hard for something new Try to find the words that speak to how I really feel Anything to make it real.
