I swim bare Lost for now One thing left I swim bare
Malcom 04:31
It's only harm Hard to ignore, but Afterwards the money cares And I'll be late first Call point a fact All I have left Is a want, A selfish want For her to come first Pulled away short I had a doubt Of anything that came alone And made sure I worked I caught my head on A window on third I was looking for The sum I lost Cause I had no girth I can't ignore When it's always there
Turn Away 03:21
I'm on time In my car, but My mind's long A little far from home I want to But my conscious Tears me raw And the voice is off What is all this for What is all this for I don't want to hear my own I don't want to hear my own again But I don't want to turn away I don't want to turn away from them X2
Rifle 03:01
It's my fault My head's on backwards It won't take long (for) My chest to follow Give my best To my front side I'll be gone I've chosen the back
Offwise 04:29
It's locked away A ton of us just saw No need to pray The beast is just unmoved I was the child Who broods alone upstairs This is that mild Nothing but a frown I don't feel bad He probably likes his cage I guess it's best To let both sides win It's locked away A ton of us just saw No need to pray The beast is just afraid
Whatapity 04:03
Traded it all for a bad habit What a pity
I hated this place It smelled like fire With no results But was I wrong Was it me Without the spark
Tired 04:34
If you wait All day It's a lie I will be afriad But if I leave I may Know the place I fear the most for our lives 9 times out of 10 It's just a buckethead It's just a waste of time So call on all your friends And call them off my back I'm losing strength And I am tired now And I was tired then
Optimist 03:58
I once was an optimist For it all Not true now, all of this False hope Try my best to hold my head up in the air But I fold again My time with the neurosis for the fall Left me cold for fucking bliss Come on I try my best to hold my head up in the air But I fold again
Noise 03:20
I just want to make some noise with you But I'm doing the hard time Where no one's listening
Oliver take my hand All of us starlit And Trading signs in Marquee lines All of us timing Kia I put my trust Kia I lost my voice A piece of me is golden rod Painted by a scab A slab of fat on your deviled eggs I'm a morsel for a task Johnny I left my house Johnny I guessed your age


Our debut effort: Rifle Meeker took about a year for us to finish recording. This has been a major project for us both musically and in terms of a life achievement. To me Rifle Meeker is about a lot of things. It's about living in a city I didn't think was right for me. It's about missing California and feeling like I was stuck along the seventeen-hour drive between Boulder and Calabasas, CA, constantly seeing road signs for places like Rifle, CO and Meeker, CO. It's also about going through a few months of constant panic attacks about issues that were way over my head. I think overall, though, it's an album about accepting that life in my early 20s comes with a lot of transitions and that relying on the constants in my life, that I care about, will make things a bit more manageable.
