about

From http://thenjunderground.com:

"Plenty of hardcore bands claim to have driving instrumentals accompanied by melodic vocals. Young American Artists are a band that actually succeed at doing so. With old-school punk guitar riffs that seem to have slight blues influnces and vocals that aren't ear piercing squeals, but powerful screams this is a band you need to check out if you are a punk/hardcore fan. The group is definitely comparable to Refused and/or Rage Against the Machine."

Track Name: Stay Awake
I'm so tired
but my bed is on fire
I can't rest my head- I wanna be dead
extreme lack of sleep I'm in far too deep
I’m really really really sorry I can't stay...

awake
stay

my sleep pattern's off
just nail me to that cross
I'll rest my head-I'll hang there dead
no more lack of sleep I'm now yours to keep
but I'm really really really sorry I can't stay...

awake
stay

I’m sorry I can’t stay awake
Stay away
Track Name: Always, Sometimes, Never
this is a great conversation
that we're having here
you really got me, you're oh so funny and I’m a slave to your wit
you're walking with the masses
who love their fucking lives
oh look at you- you smile all the time

nothing’s new and I’m just doing alright
I’ve told you now about a thousand times

this is a great conversation
that we're having here
it's like I really care about what you have to say, hey I can pretend too
and I'm sure you're listening
to every single word
cuz we're all so interesting it's absurd

still nothing new and I’m not doing fine
I’ve told you now about a thousand fucking times

cuz you’re so concerned.

I work well with others
always
I work better alone
sometimes
I often talk about people behind their back
never
I often talk…it’s just talk
talk, talk, talk
Track Name: Smalltown, U.S.A.
every night this town surrenders
every night this town surrenders to ghosts
just take look around
every night these streets surrender
every night these streets become the host
just take look around

three ways in and no way out
shit eating plastic grins all around
and all these violins don’t make a sound

every night this town surrenders
every night this town surrenders to ghosts
just take look around
every night these streets surrender
every night these streets become the host
just take look around

welcome to smalltown, USA
you'll never leave
Track Name: Miserable
bring on the melodrama; the hip new trend
you love to hate yourself just like me
so let us drown in our own misery
cuz no one really wants to be happy


and yes we love her against our will
and we'll still love her, unconditionally
and yes we love her because it hurts
and we'll still love her, unconditionally

you know, that I know, what you did, how you hid, like a kid
"I have an illness," you proclaimed.
"oh, okay."
let it slide or kill you with kindness 'til you come clean
or just ignore it; cuz it doesn't mean much to me

and yes we love her against our will
and we'll still love her, unconditionally
and yes we love her because it hurts
and we'll still love her, unconditionally

so take your pick:
OCD
ADD
depression or anxiety
ASPD
split-personality
bi-polar or how about some shock therapy?

and yes we love her against our will
and we'll still love her, unconditionally
and yes we love her until it hurts
and we'll still love her, unconditionally
Track Name: Disconnected
I’ll fake a smile for just a little while
I’ll fake a smile because I’m in denial

I’m disconnected
Track Name: The Enabler
I breathe your love
I sweat your love
I shake your love
I smell of your love

and you snort your love
inhale your love
inject your love
you bleed, you cry your love

I’m addicted
I'm addicted to your love
and it hurts…so good

well I hate myself
and I blame myself
I can't help myself
I said I can't help myself

I’m addicted
I’m addicted to your love
please

and all we want is more
Track Name: Know
everybody's always asking the same questions
what’s your plan; what do you believe?
why are you so concerned with me? why don't you worry about yourself?
I know your’re making those little comparisons in your brain
trying to make yourself feel better about your choices
your path.
your beliefs.
well, I don’t know much, but I do know this:
it’s a small world; it’s a small, small world

funny story:
I asked a co-worker if he heard of that creature-
that lizard that walks on water
he said “no”

let me continue:
he began to question me; he asked me what I believe
he asked "do you believe in god"
I said “no”

I scratch my head until it bleeds

know
Track Name: Live in a Rhythm Hive - Denial
your denial is a river
build a bridge; get over it quicker
you don't know what I’m going through
(yes I do: all humans suffer)
your denial is a river

some lucky people find what they need
the other people get stuck up stream
all those years I never really wasted
I just took some time to get myself complacent

the other people get stuck up stream
like me

Track Name: B-Sides - Trapped Inside
I stare at a wall- blank and empty
no thoughts in my head, not a sound is made
nothing is real.
I’m trapped inside my mind

this light is blinding-need to find an exit
sights are deceiving- need to break free
break free from this limbo
find me- find myself in my own mind

trapped inside my mind not a sound is made
the light is blinding
these sights are deceiving
need to find an exit need to break free
trapped inside my mind
Track Name: B-Sides - Under a Rock (Full)
I live under a rock- a salamander under a rock
I don’t care what’s going on, on the outside
cuz I’m safe here, under my rock

my neighbor is a giant centipede
he’s got so many legs; I can’t count ‘em
he’s got so many legs I can’t count
he’s got so many legs I can’t count that high
I’m safe here
Under my rock
