julimer Saw We Are The City live last night and was so amazed by the honest and passionate performance! You guys know how to combine thoughtful lyrics with intense sounds. I love the well arranged breaks and pauses in your songs and the deepness you create with them. Please come to Dresden again a.s.a.p.!!!!! You could have played at least 5 more hours ;) Favorite track: That's It, That's All.

Michael Bishop I was searching bandcamp one night for new music and listened to a few songs they didn't strike me right away. When I kept searching I found myself humming a few of the melodies. I decided to listen to the whole thing since it was stuck in my head. The grace in which things flow from track to track is just amazing. It isn't often you hear great music anymore from people actually performing instead of great after the fact editing in a studio. I'd suggest this to anyone who are fans of good music.

Kenneth D Byrd This is just a personal record. It is wonderfully produced and in all is just one of the best EP's I've ever listened to. Favorite track: That's It, That's All.

Track Name: Get Happy
You've got all these boys with their cars and their girls. Who knows where they go. Who knows what they do. They're fresh out of school.

I'm worried that I made a mistake. And I'm worried, which means I've made a mistake.

You've got all these girls with their happiness and their loneliness. And when they're happiest who knows where they'll go. Who knows what they'll do. They're fresh out of school.
Track Name: Happy New Year
No I'm not here waiting on anyone, especially not Jessika

But I feel love inside my heart

And it's me you want not that boy from France or Quebec or something else

And it's me, I'm here, I wouldn't be this way if I got what I wanted
No, I definitely didn't get what I wanted

But I feel love inside my heart
Track Name: That's It, That's All
All my friends get along with the idea of growing up. All my friends, makeup on, it's Friday night. All my friends can't get along with the idea of growing old.

I'm feeling good. I'll say the least, my friends are not so cool these days. Keith, Cam, and Ash. Bobby, Matt and Jone. Chris, Cait, Jess. Look, see I'm not alone!
Track Name: Dark/Warm Air
In the cold snow, dark air, frozen road
I drink, my mind is full
They're high in the house
Within the bright door, warm air, bathroom floor
I'm beat, my mind behold
We're high in the house
Track Name: 1987
The year I was born, three teens from New York killed a man, the most despicable crime.
In the same year, Robert McFarlane attempted a suicide. In different ways, both he and a group of American astronomers discovered new kinds of light not yet seen by human eyes. The first birth of a galaxy.
The year I was born, Capitol comes to close, premiere Bold and the Beautiful. It's all shampoo and soap.
In the same year, Gary Hart quits his job, three satanist teens kill their friend for fun. They see the devil in everything, and I'm the direct and absolute opposite of them.

(An Angel in White came to my room in the night and with no words She offered me the Light but I turned my back and faced the dark. I heard a noise in my ears from the kitchen downstairs so I checked out of fear to see if something was there. Now the Angel had flown away and a demon had taken its place. Now I'm afraid.)
Track Name: An Angel In White
If not for your eyes then I would not still dream we hadn't said goodbye.

A dream I had in the night began with a demon in the dark. It appeared on my wall, felt my fear and then dissolved. Then reappeared in my bed, but as a woman instead. With her lips, she kissed my face, when I kissed her lips I felt ashamed. At the time I didn't notice, The Holy King was in the room with me.

Forgive me forever, forever, forever, forever, forever
