about

This is the first full length LP by Calm and Crisis. The album was recorded over many months, typically between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m. It took a long time for the album to take shape, and many songs were lost along the way, but after an extended period of turmoil and sleep deprivation, we finally got it to a real good place.

Track Name: Moving Parts
All of my friends from back home are
Moving
Away

Everybody’s changing and me I’m just
Staying
The same

And I’m getting sentimental
I’m getting misty eyed
Harping on the good times
What the hell am I doing with my life?

Oh oh oh

All of my friends are functioning
With moving
Parts

I’m falling behind but when did this
Race
Even start

And I’m feeling like a burden
Swimming in my filth
I’m feeling like a failure
And drowning in my guilt
Oh oh oh

Fuck
(Bass Solo)

All of my friends from back home are
Breaking
My heart

They’re all so together
I just keep falling
Apart

And that girl I used to sleep with
She just got engaged
She is getting married
And I’m not getting laid

Oh oh oh
Track Name: Life of the Party
I seem to cross
Every line that I come across
Spit in the sand as I go
And all my convictions
They whither with time
I’m the biggest hypocrite that I know

And I’m getting off
As you’re stroking my ego
Filling up as you feed me my pride
I’m sitting up here
On this throne of denial
Full from eating my lies

I’m the life of the party
And they’re eating it up,
They’re eating it up
I’m the life
Of the party
And they’re eating it up
They’re eating it up
I’m the life of the party
And it’s eating me up
It’s eating me up
It’s eating me up
Its eating me
Life of the party
I seem to go where I know I’m not wanted
Makes it so easy to leave
I seem to do all these things I don’t mean to
Makes it so easy to be
An asshole
Asshole
I’m an asshole
Asshole
I’m the life of the party
Asshole,
Asshole,
I’m an asshole
Asshole
I’m the life of the party

I’m the life of the party
And they’re eating it up
They’re eating it up
I’m the life of the party
And it’s eating me up
Its eating me
Life of the party
Track Name: One Foot Over The Edge
Dizzy,
Tiny little cuts on my pale hands
And bruises on my bones
One foot
In front of the other
To get me home

Filthy,
From swimming in dirt and self-pity
These ripped up old shoes that I own
Put one
In front of the other
And I’ll get home

No,
Never gonna let this grow

I admit, I lost control for a little bit

Spinning
Everything around me is spinning
I can barely see my phone
One foot,
In front of the other
To get me,
Home
Fuck me,
The bourbon makes it all so fuzzy
Gotta keep my head

One foot in front of the other
And into my bed

I
Am never gonna let this die

I admit,
I lost my shit for a minute there
I admit,
I lost my shit for a minute there

Surfing on the concrete
Gotta keep my head
Dancing down the hallway
Gotta keep my head
One foot in front of the other
And into my bed
One foot in front of the other
And over the edge.

Over the edge
Over the edge

I admit,
I lost my shit for a minute there
I admit,
I lost my shit
For a minute there

Gotta keep my head
Gotta keep my head
Gotta keep my head

Gotta keep my head
Keep my head
Keep my head

Never gonna lose control
I’m never gonna lose control
Never gonna lose my
Never gonna lose my
Never gonna lose
My head

I admit
I lost control
For a little bit.
Track Name: Alone in the Sea
It was the middle
Of a cold December night
In a tight leather jacket
He climbed up on her roof

As he struggled
To smoke cigarettes as he climbed
She laughed cause she thought it was cute

Then she saw his busted up face
His old man just got meaner with age
And she held him close
Tight as she could squeeze
Two fish
Alone in the sea


She wiped the blood from his face
With her ripped up old Nirvana t-shirt
And she cried as she asked,
“Are you ok?”
He said, “It looks a lot worse than it hurts.
But with all these friends,
I still feel alone
Who do they expect me to be?
You and me,
We’re someone to no body
Two fish alone in the sea.”

She said, “You and I are trapped
Here in this tiny pond
Drowning in the ocean of our lives
And in this sea
You and me
We are alone
Only in your arms I feel at home.”

He said,
“With all these friends
I still feel alone
They treat me like I’m some sort of king
And I’m drowning,
Cause I’m nothing
But skin and bones
Only in your arms I feel at home.”

“And all these people
Moving parts
It feels so empty
It feels so dark.”

She said, “Let’s leave
Go somewhere far
You get the whisky
I’ll get the car.”

“No time like now
Nowhere but out
No place like anywhere
Where we’re on our own
Only in your arms I feel at home.”
Track Name: Traffic
I’ve been stuck behind the same car
All these years
I’ve been wearing the same scars
All my life

Tell me
What is it about you people?
I love you but you scare me to death
Tell me
What is it about you people?
I love you but you fill me with regret

I know there’s no one on the road but me

Stuck in the dirt on a dry day
Feelin’ like a shut-in on a Friday
Seems I need some gasoline
Send some of that love my way

Tell me
What is it about you people?
I don’t think there’s one of you I trust
Tell me
What is it about you people?
I love you but I hate you just as much

I know there’s no one on the road but me
I’ve been stuck behind the same car
All these years
I’ve been wearing the same scars
All my life

Tell me
What is it about you people?
I love you but you scare me to death
Tell me
What is it about you people?
I love you but you fill me with regret

I know there’s no one on the road but me

I can’t drive, I can’t drive
Stuck in traffic all my life
And out of spite
Out of spite
I’m gonna sleep in my car all night
But I wanna leave
I wanna breath
Crack the glass
And hear me speak
So I can say something
Say something new

I’m gonna say something new

No one on the road but me
Track Name: Invisible Girl
The invisible girl
She moves with such speed
Somewhere between point A and point B
Oh oh oh

She looks rather weak
As if she might fall
I’m barely here, But she is nowhere at all
Oh oh oh

When shes alone she doesn’t talk to herself
She just sits there in the silence
And watches time melt.

Well somewhere between
All the dope and no food
Turning translucent beat the hell out of blue
Oh oh oh

When she’s alone she doesn’t sing in the shower
She just watches time melt
Hour by hour

She’s the invisible girl

When she walks her shoelaces dance
Missed matched socks
And loose fitting pants
Oh oh oh

She’s the invisible girl
Somewhere between you and me
She’s the invisible girl
Somewhere that she’d rather be
She’s the invisible girl
Anywhere that seems like nowhere
Somewhere where no one can see.
Track Name: Abandon Ship
Abandon ship
You know he’s drowning you
He’s made of lead
You know you’re sinking too

And it’s slowly
Seeping through
As you swallow your regret
Late nights on the phone
Behind a cigarette

Don’t bail the water
It’s a futile task
Jump off the boat
Why would you climb the mast?

I don’t see how you could love
Somebody else so much
To drown instead of leaving him in the muck


I will never be
I will never be
Caught up in the riptide
I’m lonely but at least I’m dry

I will never see
I will never see
What motivates your suicide?
I’m lonely but at least I’m alive

Or am I

I don’t ever go down with my ship
The sea gets rough and I just quit
What the hell am I trying to prove?
I wish I could drown with you
But I abandon ship.
Track Name: Cabernet Sauvignon
Pale face in a mirror
Water through my hair
Try to work the courage up
To go out there

Silence on the radio
And static in my head
The source of love and suffering
Is sitting on my bed
She’s sitting on my bed

Cabernet sauvignon
She don’t stay to long
I’m gonna drink the whole fucking bottle
When she leaves

Lou Reed on the stereo
I can hear her sing along
Sounds like she knows all the words
To all my favorite songs

Running low on alcohol
And I’m running short on time
And the reason I got drunk last night
Is sipping on my wine
She’s sipping on my wine

Cabernet sauvignon
She don’t stay too long
I’m gonna drink the whole fucking bottle
When she leaves.
Track Name: Wake
Seems like the days are getting shorter
Every time that I wake up
The circles underneath my eyes
Are getting darker
Every time that I wake up

So I’m trying my best
To see when I look
I’m trying my best
To love when I fuck
I’m trying so hard
To get out of my bed
Every time that I wake up

Cause one day I won’t wake up
On day I won’t wake up
And everything I am will be
Absolutely nothing at all

Seems the clock hand is moving faster
I wonder just when mine will stop
Another day another dollar
Shit outa luck when I cash out my lot

So I’m trying my best
To have what I’m given
I’m trying my best
To hear when I listen
I’m trying so hard
To get out of my head
Every time that I wake up

Cause one day I won’t wake up
One day I won’t wake up
And everything I am will be
Absolutely nothing at all

So on that day
That I don’t wake
At least I will have heard the birds sing
Track Name: Penultimate
When your tongue is in my ear
I can’t hear a lie
When your hand is in my hair
I don’t care if I die

Cause it all just seems too good to be a lie

When your nails dig in my skin
I don’t care if I lose blood
Nevermind the pain
No, it sorta feels like love

Cause it’s all just seems to fit like a glove
Yeah it all just seems to fit like a glove

When your thumb is in my mouth
I don’t care if I pass out
Let the blood rush to my head
And pacify my doubt

Yeah, cause breath is something I can live without
Yeah, life is something I can live without

When my neck is met with teeth
Go ahead and sink em’ deep
Cause it doesn’t have to rhyme
It does not have to make sense

Cause it all just feels too good to give a shit
Yeah it all just feels too good to give a shit
Well it all just feels too good to give a shit
It feels so fucking good
Penultimate.
Track Name: Barely Here
Are you still talking?
Are we still fucking?
It doesn’t matter
I’m barely here

Was that a joke?
Should I be laughing?
It doesn’t matter
I’m barely here

Was she pretty?
Did I love her?
It doesn’t matter
I’m barely here

Am I an asshole?
Do you resent me?
It doesn’t matter
I’m barely here

Now I feel scared
I feel so low
Where did everyone go?
When I wasn’t there
I’m barely
Here.
