When the notes are running low Shall we take a ride down a darker road Playing with our new shadows No one will know Fear is what’ll make it fun When you show the quick flash of a b-b gun Didn’t mean to make em run Run for their lives! Say you really wanna babe, I won’t let you down Just say you really wanna, say you really wanna! Life could be so wonderful, just follow my lead, I swear Teller says he’ll scream “POLICE!” Call his bluff, show him your iron heart Scare him straight, n’ make him squeam Take a slice of the pie “I wasn’t gonna hurt you baby (brother). But then you made me fire” Sirens make you the feel the rush Panic hits you harder than finer drugs Movies never show the dust The cellophane lies! Say you really wanna babe, I won’t let you down Just say you really wanna, say you really wanna! Life can be so wonderful, just follow my lead, I swear Say you really wanna babe, I won’t let you down Just say you really wanna, say you really wanna Life can be so wonderful, just follow my lead, I swear Say you really wanna, ooh! Say you really wanna ahoo!

Sour Candy 03:53
I need a buzz, I need a thrill to feel strong Your love’s a fighting one, terrible fun I gave you up Once not enough The body chills The "gotta have its" Your grip is strong And the thrill was good Rings nice times Your bite cuts like a jack-knife Your world is cold and frozen My heart’s got touch of frost bite That’s why I’m always running Don’t know: I need you some days You taste like sour candy My heart is hard and not right I warn my limbs: “get running away” I know my hearts beats wrong, I know I’m dumb The fall is curtains down, we’ll pass to the young I gave you up My little love My brittle truss Is bound to cave in Thought we’re done Yet there we stood A grip so tight Do love, Do love wrong Come now say you want me Do wrong, do love wrong Come down, leave me guessing Your bite cuts like a jack-knife Your world is cold and frozen My heart’s got touch of frost bite That’s why I’m always running

Barks 03:44
Hard fall Flat tired again This shit keeps on happening I feel a stress thats bubbling I’m feeling stretched like rubber bands Large fault Cracking through the land Sheer rock scraping at its edge Their words are spinning ever fast They’re making circles with the facts Big bowl of nothing special is coming I could use some sugar man Don’t get dressed for anything I’m holding hope for something special, just pretend Let’s pretend I feel it coming to an ending, a heartbreak again I’m left silent feeling selfish, sideways and spent I’m wishing I could up and call you, share some good words friend I’m left silent feeling homesick, pretending again I feel it coming to an ending, a heartbreak again I’m left silent feeling selfish, sideways and spent

Am I lost and bound for Neverland? A sad teen island Am I drifting? I cast my calls on a blanket cloud of fog Saying: am I loved? Am I loved? This plastic town that double downs on miracles Round and round and round such sick cycles! Whoa no no! I’m fearing that a chemical cloud is gonna come and get me now Whoa no no I’m feeling all the blood, the rush, dont ever let me down! Whoa no no I’m leaning on you more and more and I long to hear you say “It’s alright, It’s OK!” Am I living in a Neverland? Take me by the hand Say you miss me Lost amongst a dozen idle cars Movie captions on In a teenage fog This plastic town that double downs on miracles Round and round and round such sick cycles! Whoa no no! I’m fearing that a chemical cloud is gonna come and get me now Whoa no no I’m feeling all the blood, the rush, dont ever let me down! Whoa no no I’m leaning on you more and more and I long to hear you say “It’s alright, It’s OK!”

Glare off a sun-set sea seen off my balcony and I can't help but think why are you leaving? Sheets that hold your scent aloft in an unmade bed flash you had to leave the glue ain't sticking So let's settle down build a house out west You're my queen once crowned with a golden crest The sun will sit and we'll cook red and then I wake from a dream I had The glue ain't sticking Note said home by three with leftovers left to heat and I can't help but think what am I missing Thought I heard your laugh from the corner of our bowed-in flat I quickly jerked to see a ghost, it's haunting me So let's settle down build a house out west You're my queen once crowned with a golden crest And I'll breath fire when I hear your name choke back a smile and I softly cave And the ducks will swim and we'll throw bread and then I wake from a dream I had And I'll breath fire when I hear your name choke back a smile and I softly cave the glue ain't sticking

Soft II 03:58
A slight bump of the knees Igniting fools in bed Clap for us in choir lung, so soft The chatter of our teeth Sparks sounds to misbehave Felt it on a floor of wood, spelled out The last chances of poor romantics in play So come hear me out, let me stay The bird that brought us peace The dog that sleeps all day The swing that keep our blood aloft, boiling hot Excitement for the tease Swim the pool, don’t misbehave All rules were made to age and break, so what The last chances of poor romantics in play So comforting now as we sway So soft we are without a fight So soft we are without So soft the man, with half a fight So soft the man without Dark sky, you know my insides I saw halos Firefly, you have my insight I saw halos

Wide Awake 04:11
All falling starts Two random hearts Felt the pull and I ended you where you are Turning a blind eye Charging through the power lines we go I drew a tangled map, this feeling lost at sea Your voice keeps me afloat I told a priest that I’ve been thinking awful things His words “Get good, get God, get gone!” Wide awake, I'm wide awake Miles away, can love be anymore? Miles away, your miles away Wide awake, what am I trying for? What am I trying for? Wild animals poor self control That’s how it goes and the feeling pulls I can see you miss me I'm trying hard but can't sleep at all My pulse at ease until I hear your siren sing A voice, lumps in my throat I told a priest that I’ve been tempted to the brink His words “Get good, get God, get gone!” Wide awake, I'm wide awake Miles away, can love be anymore? Miles away, your miles away Wide awake, what am I trying for? What am I trying for? To the places we descend To hear your warming breath It’s a love mix medicine I want to feel your warming breath Our love don’t make no sense! Pull, pull, pull! Pull, pull, pull!

Lemonade 03:10
Destiny It all ended right outside of magnolia, city Say my name Do you even have me in your Nokia, it’s Kelly Honey Bae You’re a lover bee with a killer sting Lemonade, good god You’re the sour, sweetest thing to me Lefty Jay Was she 99, or are you in the game Tell me Texas Queen Are you still my girl or just a song machine I’m kidding Honey Bae You’re a lover bee with a killer sting Lemonade, good god You’re the sour, sweetest thing to me Wearing ivy park We caught you smashing cars The elevator dropped How are you now Wearing ivy park We caught you smashing cars The elevator dropped Where are you now Honey Bae You’re a lover bee with a killer sting Lemonade, good god You’re the sour, sweetest thing to me

Hale Bopp 04:09
Hey there you are, hazy star, shining signals down This aperture, leaves a blur, cannot make you out My foggy head, feels so dense, feeling weighted down But there you are, hazy star, can you hear me call? And I try, I try, I’m trying to find out I could not wait to ask your name I always hoped you come our way How about now? You cut and curve a reckless pace There’s alabaster in this place How can I find you now? Two younger kids, flying herds, jar of medicine I count it up, chased it down, maybe five or six A doctor’s note, bedside post, let me go again I cast my vote, I suppose, how far did i go? And I try, I try, I’m trying to find out I could not wait to ask your name I always hoped you come our way How about now? You cut and curve a reckless pace There’s alabaster in this place How can I find you now?

about

Wartime Recitals Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles' Wartime Recitals emerged from a love of pop melodies, large arrangements, and a desire to play their instruments very loudly. Though the group does have glockenspiel parts, they would like to note that all comparisons to other glockenspiel-related bands are probably wrong. And that's okay. ... more
