We will be filming a video for this song at our upcoming show @ Toronto Underground Cinema on April 9th.

Watch an acoustic version and video of the song here:

This song's about people who go to shows and refuse to enjoy themselves, or are there for the wrong reasons. What the fuck?


lift off

master of the artifice
hungry ears and napalm lips
take this cape and this lipstick
and go parade some comic strip

oh that feelin', that ol' lovin' feelin'
where it done gone?

all your favourites, dropping lists
sit and hate and hate and sit
mesmerized by sonic tricks
too modernized to jump and kick

oh that feelin', that ol' lovin' feelin'
where it done gone?

you rise
you fall
and you break
tired tired tired tired eyes
it burns
and it quakes

love makes a tryst
with what lies beyond the mist
pain's part of it
and death is just a myth
