A little older A little past the quarter Shit, I thought by now I'd be as wise as my father Time keeps slipping into the shadows Just sit back and relax and open that bottle I guess I didn't get the memo So we tried too hard to make this demo Let's raise our drinks now Come on let's toast it For tonight we drink for the dreams that we dusted For me I thought life wasn't so hard So I started it all with the riff of the guitar Let's raise our drinks now Come on let's toast it For tonight we drink for the dreams that we dusted A little older A little past the quarter Shit, I thought by now I'd be as wise as my father Time keeps slipping into the shadows Just sit back and relax and open that bottle For once I thought I could break the pattern So I guess I'll settle for unspoken babbles Let's raise our drinks now Come on let's toast it For tonight we drink for the dreams that we dusted A little older A little past the quarter Shit, I thought by now I'd be as wise as my father Time keeps slipping into the shadows Just sit back and relax and open that bottle

Forgetting this place and everyone in it Why do I let them get under my skin? I don't get it I thought I'd never regret it But I got anger and hatred pent up inside of me I know its much easier not to notice For you not to see (bad habits are killing me) So you carve the apple from my eyes You give me a chance to grow So you can butcher me down But I won’t fall apart In your cluttered web of lies (bad habits are killing you) You tried feeding me your venom And see how well that worked out If I would’ve known better I would’ve been gone by now Bad habits will kill you tonight Bad habits will kill you tonight Bad habits will kill you tonight Bad habits will kill you tonight

We walked through the pissy streets of LA Not a care in the world What they think or say I remember when you held my hand It was shaky, oh yeah I denied the things that I was feeling inside It was easier to lie, than to admit we could try I just want you to know and I think that I’m sure That I don’t want to burn my bridges Take me back where everything started Talk to me like you haven’t before Please pretend just once that we are as in love Like we used to be back in high school When you were my high school sweetheart(x4) I’m sorry things didn’t turn how you wanted The hearts that were once are dead And are left unhearted I’m sorry to dump all this shit on you Honestly is there something else I can do? I fucked it up I fucked us up I let everything slip from my hands You fucked it up You fucked us up You let everything slip from your hands Take me back where everything started Talk to me like you haven’t before Please pretend just once that we are as in love Like we used to be back in high school When you were my high school sweetheart (x4) I’ll be dammed if I let things get so cold Fix myself just to patch this hole Honestly do you think we can start this over? When I’ve seen it happen a million times before High school sweetheart (x4)

These are Not Half Bad's lyrics, Tanya sings a few things slightly differently, but if you sing along at the show, no one judge you or Tanya for not singing the same thing. I'm left with my lobotomy, lost dreams of teenage piracy to scour night time city streets for benefits for all to reap and all of us and in all our scores, we'd run the streets, they'd lock their doors, we're not a stop or detour, we'd take their world over. And when its summer I'll smoke and choke and work on cancer when they all leave I'll sleep all fucking winter but when the sun does rise, I'll open up my eyes and start the day. I woke up an adult today at a loss for the things to say and I think and try to start I'm found here all these worlds apart on city streets in awe and stunned in burning heat of revolution and as age makes one older why can't we start this over? And when its summer I'll smoke and choke and work on cancer when they all leave I'll sleep all fucking winter but when the sun does rise I'll open up my eyes and start the day. I only smoke Newports I only drink Mexican Coke I only surround myself with people that the world's lost all hope. When I'm at my end and I'm surrounded by these friends Well then I'll look back at my life and know it was no fucking joke.

It’s hard to start from the bottom to the top When all I wanted was to survive And all these friends of mine That were there along the lines When I almost hit rock bottom So I set my eyes real wide And I’ll gasp this breathe so tight Cause I’ll get to see tomorrow But I guess you’ll never know When the cracks begin to show And if you do please sign below And I’ll stand here ’till the end With the time that’s left my hands Don’t dare tell me what is right Because I’m not willing to bend I guess this is a way of an apology But I never lost the hope of faith you have in me So I wonder if you’ll know If our scars begin to show And if you do please sign below And I’ll stand here ’till the end With the time that’s left my hands Don’t dare tell me what is right Because I’m not willing to bend I close my eyes shut The doors never opened We’ve lost all our hope We weren’t the ones broken So I wonder if you know That our hearts are getting cold And if you do please sign below And as I get older There are things I cannot see So I try to start a new path To know where I want to be So I go to all these places With vaguely familiar faces And right there at that moment I know where I want to be

about

Our first EP!

Or basically a demo from before Nick and Dani and Miller were even in the band. But there's some cool stuff on here.

Thanks, ex Newports, who are now making some rad tunes in the band Failing up and hopefully won't be mad at us over this (we can cut you in if so, call us).
