about

This is our first EP of original material. It was tracked, mixed, and mastered by our high school band director. Because he was generous enough to take the time to record us, and has helped us grow as students, we've decided to donate all of the funds generated by this EP to our high school's band program. So if you choose an amount greater than $0, it will go to a great program that has helped each of us and deserves the money.

Also, the album artwork was designed and created by our friend, Paul.

Track Name: Proud To Be A Loser
And I sit by my friends
Meaning I sit all alone
And I don’t really care that I never use the phone
And I laugh at all these people who are working to the bone
Trying to keep maintenance on the titles they all own
Because the reputation of a loser is easy keep
Never proving yourself, never being on your knees
Everyone expects you to do nothing but occasionally sneeze
And I happy complete all of these because

I’m proud to be a loser
I do everything wrong
And I know it’s true
That’s why I’m singing this song
But when you say wrong, all I hear is right
So stop thinking I can’t sleep at night
Because I can

Now don’t get me wrong
I have friends who
Are also losers
And proud of it too
And with so much to think
And so little to do
It’s no wonder why I feel
So much better than you

And you sit there
Combing your hair
You’re gonna go
Out somewhere
I’ll be all alone and you’ll be there
But frankly I don’t really care

And I’m a loser
I do everything wrong
And I know it’s true
That’s why I’m singing this song
But when you say wrong all I hear is right
So stop thinking I can’t sleep at night
Because I can.


Skip ahead 20 years
Let’s compare lives
I have a steady salary
But you’ve had 3 wives

And I still don’t care about the little things
Owned by your stuff you still think you can laugh at me

And I still don’t care about the little things
Owned by your stuff you still think you can laugh at me

I’m proud to be a loser
I do everything wrong
And I know it’s true
That’s why I’m singing this song
But when you say wrong all I hear is right
So stop thinking I can't sleep at night
Because I can.
Track Name: Warriors
No Vertebrae!
Warriors!
Don your t-shirts, wristbands, and Chucks.
Don't forget your fedora.
Your uniform only costs a couple bucks, hey!

We're waging a war,
a bloodless one on fashion.
One shirt and no more!
but it shows our passion

No Vertebrae!
Warriors!
Don your t-shirts, wristbands, and Chucks.
Don't forget your fedora.
Your uniform only costs a couple bucks, what?
Track Name: Watch It!
Get off my back
I’ll believe what I believe
Spurting your opinions like they’re the facts, the truth

Because you, you hate everything
But mostly yourself

You’re ill informed, lacking knowledge, lacking tact
But you don’t care; won’t cloud the issue with facts
After all your mind’s already made up on this
And introducing new information won’t change it

You, you hate everything
You, you hate everything
You, you hate everything, you hate everything
You hate everything
But mostly yourself
Track Name: Who Are We Waiting For?
There’s always something else
There’s always something more
It seems there’s always something
that we’re waiting for

Every time we pass an obstacle
another one pops up
It makes me wonder what’s the point
of even getting up?

Who are we waiting for?

So you can give me a reason to stop on by
and I can give you a reason as to why you should really try
Talk is cheap but yours is worthless
Let’s take some time, and just get through this

Because we’re wasting time wasting time wasting time
everybody’s wasting time wasting time wasting time wasting time

So who are we really waiting for?
You can blame it on someone else but the answer is so clear
You are the bringer of all of your chores
All of those obstacles were really yours
The only person who can bring about your doom is you
The only person you’re waiting for is you

Who are we waiting for?

Why are we waiting for ourselves?
