The Sea 02:25
Another year in the rearview Laid waste to the months Another painful regret hewn Sunk down in my gut I’m tired of this place And I’m Tired of Believing That my life is gonna change Cause this city’s so deceiving Force-feeding the brightview Uncorking the years Retreating from harsh truth Emotions are sheared I’m tired of this place And I’m tired of believing That the world is gonna change While I’m focused on receiving I’ll stop when tomorrow comes I’ll get it right Get it all done I’ll save myself from every me With every lie another try slips below the sea Nothing Ever Changes...

Tiny Tremor 02:34
Your lips were shaking like a tiny tremor Hot tears streaming down your face My first thought was to hold you closer Cause I knew this was the last embrace We had fun under the catalina sun We had fights that no one ever won I’ll never be the one for you, So find someone that’s true to you. Not me. Never could it be So think back on the time we spent, the laughs we shared, the paths we went Move on, But still remember me I heard somewhere that you’re getting married I’m happy still to be on my own there’s no burden that I have to carry And when I’m ready I will find a home We had fun under the catalina sun We had fights that no one ever won I’ll never be the one for you, So find someone that’s true to you. Not me. Never could it be So think back on the time we spent, the laughs we shared, the paths we went Move on, But still remember me And love don’t conquer everything despite the bullshit that you read...

Decent People don’t act this way Giving demons a place to pray We forgot much more than, much more than We could ever learn These trinkets impress us digesting everything we’ve earned The putrid carcass of yesterday Still weeping gently for our disgrace We forgot much more than, much more than We could ever learn These trinkets impress us digesting everything we’ve earned The sum of what we were Can never be the same We’re shattered bits of stars Surviving in this entropy, while siding with our inner beasts, pretending that we’re gods or men we’re decent people playing dead Forward motion is held at bay Tracking the seasons we’re forced to stay

Ungrateful 02:03
To be so ungrateful for a life you never asked no one for How guilty should you really feel? The wick is still lit but the wax is melted down so much Lurching forward just to kneel So you throw it all away The knowing look of the dying beast in the mouth something so much larger And I got the news today Another flame smothered out and the world becomes that much colder Compromising nothing, you’d rather die than become boring The greatest sin of them all Forced by your nature you forged a pathway to the ledge Just to leap in to a fall

You showed up ready to take on the world Play some music and chase after girls you’d never sell your dreams to survive In time you found yourself sucked dry Cycled out watching time blast by Corroded dreams left out to die Well you can’t act And you sure can’t play But you can’t go back Welcome to LA You watch them come with open hearts And then you watch the process start Until like you they realize This place is good at stealing time And tarnishing whatever shines Leaving you drunk down in a dive

about

AreaMan Los Angeles, California

AreaMan believes that there is a common thread connecting first and second wave punk rock, post punk, indie rock, and the vital and visceral underground music that is bubbling up from LA’s crumbling dives and rapidly multiplying venues. It is this thread that they believe they weave their music with -for better or worse -it is not their style to stay within strict “genre specific” guidelines. ... more
