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

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

Miserable 03:28
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

Disconnected 02:30
I’ll fake a smile for just a little while I’ll fake a smile because I’m in denial I’m disconnected
7.
The Enabler 04:31
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
8.
Know 03:37
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

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 build a bridge; get over it quicker, yeah

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
 your denial is a river build a bridge; get over it quicker

some lucky people find what they need
the other people get stuck up stream like me
 (your denial is a river build a bridge; get over it quicker, yeah)

you're so beautiful when you look at me that way you’re so beautiful when you look at me that way
I knew that one day you’d stop looking at me that way I knew that one day…
 love has begun; love is a gun
 you need to love yourself before you can love someone else
I didn't love myself…no love has begun; love is a gun you need to love yourself before you can love someone else
I didn't love myself…no I didn’t love I didn’t love myself

i don’t care about your problems i got my own; I try to solve them i don’t care
13.
apathy is a drug
it's only human to fall in and out of love I love you, but you don't love me
so contrited; unrequited
 apathy is a drug it's only human to fall in and out of love
"all of which are american dreams"
14.
everybody's always lookin' at him he's got it all under control everybody's always lookin' at him he's got it all under control
 just look at the way he walks and listen to how he talks no one can ever be so perfect, man
 everybody's always lookin' at him he's got it all under control he's got something crawling under his skin

I don't mind being on the inside when you fall in love you're bound to feel a little sting
 we got beating hearts we got beating hearts we got bleeding hearts I got a bleeding heart

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
22.
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

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."
