about

The songs on 'Fun Sucker' are a heartfelt response to sudden change, broken friendships, cultural anomalies, and letting go of the past. At its core, this album is about making the best of things even when your hope feels strained. Inspired by our wonderful friends in Los Angeles and beyond, the people we have loved and lost, and the adrenaline that comes from living and learning.

Track Name: Heavy God
The library of your heart
I read a book I can't pick apart
Let go or be drowned

Then I walked into the room and you were there
Sat down next to you in the wooden chair
Looked out the window the leaves were coming down
I looked all around

and you said
"Where are you"?

Oh I'm right here
Looking at you dear
But I am also far away
In my imaginary place and it's so safe

But I fear that I am losing my mind
And I will never find

The spaces and carousels
Where time is horses
Who charge towards god and ourselves
Track Name: Dead Dove
The pale hair of death is on my canopy this morning
And I can't get you away from me

Due to heaviness
Due to hell in a mess

There's pigeons on my stoop
they keep laughing
It's just like you
to suck the fun out of everything

You'll never be
as fearful as me

The pale hair its there on my bed this morning
Let it go, let it go, let it go
you suck the fun out of everything
Track Name: Witch Costume Fits Best
Golden key
I mean to charm a spell
on everything I feel that's not right inside

Im bewitched
Im amused
I assume I'm always the accused
when it comes to the trial

But I know that's not alright
not alright

Little toy in my hand
I would like to play with you again
But I know it's not right
I know you can't put up a fight

Put you down on the floor
where you'll lay forever more
the sun could melt you away

No matter
I am set to fade

Get out on the front line
What's there left to hide behind?

Sorcerer of sorts
who makes the weather reports
look stormy everyday
Track Name: Forest Beach
Forest beach
Won't you meet me on the street?
and I will be waiting
patiently
with the black clouds in the sky
with clouds rolling by!

Cause I was always waiting
I was always waiting
And you were so impatient

Where'd you go?
On the day you died
Who took your hand?
Led you inside
I was always curious, who led you in
to the sky

Cause I was always waiting
and you were so
so impatient

I was always waiting!
And you were so impatient.
Track Name: Critter
I have visions just for fun
Here is one I'm gonna let you in on

I'm on the trail on my silver horse
His name was Critter yeah
He knew the best course

As the days get swept away
We're behind the barn that's turning grey

We gotta get back on our course
Oh Critter yeah you know I feel remorse!

And I always miss you, how we used to graze all day
If I don't see you up in some heaven, it won't be okay
Track Name: Bored Already
Here's a pill,
with some water wash it down
Don't be worried, it will go away later

Then you'll meet me on the fourth floor of the public parking lot
Just promise you won't be late

And you were
Yeah you were
Yeah you were late, and I had to wait

How could you appreciate my time if you can't be on time?
How could you possibly respect my mind?

Ohhhhhhhh

I know that we just got here
Our heads are filled with fear
But it's a long way, it's a long way
From point A to point B

If we can't get out of bed
If we can't clean out our dirty heads
How are we ever going to make this happen at all?

Sometimes I feel like I will fall on you
Between everything I am trying to do
And the bottles break, and the piles get higher
I'm just waiting on my new implication for my whole life

I know we just got here
Our heads are filled with fear
But its a long way, it's a long way
From point A to point B

I know we just got here
But you have to be on time for me.
Track Name: Schoolyard Diggers
This abandoned school in my cap and gown
Picking up a trapper keeper
Love letters are all I found

In the aftermath
Once the bricks are down
Objects of some former self pressed into the future ground

Everything will last awhile
Take it through the turnstile kiddo
Breathing the asbestos
Know you liked it best though baby

With wrecking balls it falls completely
The bathroom stalls, the chairs, the halls, the laboratory classes
Well I've been up and down the stairs
Who cares about calculations
We still don't have a line

Everything will last awhile
Take it through the turnstile kiddo
Breathing the asbestos
Know you liked it best though baby

In the basement sits a chair
Covered in chains and a book of braille
We haven't found the capsule yet
But you bet we're still going places
We'll figure it out in time
