Recorded by Decades/ mixed and mastered by John Krohn and Matt Waterman at Deep Deep Pink Recording Studio in Lansing, Michigan.


we grew up in the arms of the west end, now we’ve got a story to tell/ find it hard to believe me/ when i pound on the vanity table and i’m crying for help/ i’ve seen a million others drop dead in the heat/ from burt highway to cherry street/ so honey, climb in/ there’s still rubber to spin/ i’ve got a box of franzia i can plan my escape next week/ and i’ll tear you up/ well we rolled around on top of my Lincoln ’til you had my blood on your shirt/ was it hard to forget that/ if you’ve got something to say to me now you better hope that it works/ and when the tattered neon lights up your eyes/ i’ll pray to god for one more try/ but it all burns out/ once you know where you’re at/ i can keep my mouth shut if you don’t wanna be hurt like that/ near the football field in a bonfire blaze all the kids melt bottles down into ashtrays/ and in cars that were made when we were in first grade all the hickies swim up to the surface through jet black veins/ is it wrong/ to drown all of these people i’ve met with my sweat when i’m just trying to move on/ will it even get me that farther ahead/ cause in the next six weeks I’ll make fourty-two plans/ when i leave town they will all boil down to just eating whatever and fucking whoever i can/ when i come home you’ll understand

Though the band still embrace their roots, it was their mutual interest in the great pop songwriters and lyricists of the last 5 decades that formed Decades. ... more
