Meadow I love this album, it fills my heart with all the emotions I want to feel. It reminds me that I am alive and that there are still things worth living for. some nights I have dreams about Darion's shitty ass friends and I wake up feeling so refreshed, and all I want to do is fall back asleep so I can dream some more about MM. MM is the only thing worth living for at this point, I Cant wait for the next album. Long live the sound that soothes, long live Meteor Moves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Favorite track: Haha.

Metro Catpiss This makes me stoked. I've got the tape on heavy rotation in my 89 Festiva. It makes driving home in 100 degree heat in a car with no ac & only 1 functioning window after working 11 hours in a warehouse worth it.

The only complaint I have is that there's not more of this. Favorite track: Shitty Song Title.

Track Name: Untitled
oh, wont you let me on my own
and let me suffer for myself
because you love is over bearing
and its bad for my health

so pack your bags my best of friends
and go on a long vacation

please don't forget
about our friendships
because if all recognition is lost then
our love is worthless
please step your ass off and give me a chance
then maybe you'd finally understand

please please help me grow up grow up right now
so that i don't have to live life by myself
please help me grow old grow old with our house
but it doesn't seem like that you are interested in me anyhow
Track Name: Shitty Song Title
false assumptions and narrow-mindedness
its all gonna kill you one day
you'll just end up betrayed

please don't use your silly mind
you're over thinking the possibilities
hang up your coat its a matter of time
you're a judge using only hostility

full stories to you aren't needed
because your head must be playing god
did you forget your life is in first person
but you control me like lightning to lightning rods

lies and untold secrets
are surrounding hurtful and selfish
claim merit over age
does make up the fact you're talking inside a cage

please don't use your silly mind
you're over thinking the possibilities
hang up your coat its a matter of time
you're a judge using only hostility

you're a hypocrite
contradictions of ones self
i wanna slap the fucking shit out of you
in your fucking face all by myself

if god was real, would he even understand
or would he turn away, like every other man
if god was real, I'm really stressing the if
because god isn't real he was invented for the fucking less confident
Track Name: Can't Tell If I Coughed Up Blood Or Salsa
you're imperfections you seem to dwell about
about your hair your face your nose you doubt you doubt me
i really hope you know how just a feel
i feel your hair your face your nose it seems unreal

and it makes me wonder
could such a great event last forever maybe
be an old jolly couple dressed in black
with receding mohawks patched walkers and heart attacks

so please don't die on me yet because ill feel lonely
you've surpassed my expectancies everyday i can guarantee
sleep tight don't let the punk bugs bite on me

you're perfections you seem to not recognized
like your hair you face your nose you say its lies not to me
your unique and thats better than being flawless
because it made you who you are and you need to be proud of it

and it makes me wonder
could such a great event last forever maybe
be a young punk couple dressed in black
with red mohawks patched vests and black flag tats

straight outta compton
crazy mother fucker named ice cube
from a gang called meteor moves
when i'm called off
i got a sawed off
squeeze the trigger now bodies are hauled off
ak 47 is the tool (gratata)
don't make me act like a mother fuckin fool
me and you can go toe to toe no maybe
i'm knocking kids out the box
yo weekly monthly and yearly
until them dumb mother fuckers see clearly
that i'm down with that capital CPT
boy you cant fuck with me
so when i'm in your neighborhood
you better duck
cuz ice cube is crazy as fuck
as i leave believe i'm stomping but when i'm come back boy
i'm coming straight outta compton

goodnight sleep tight don't let the punk bugs bite ( on me)
Track Name: Haha
i cant see how clearly you believe you right
after all you've done to me, after every constant fight
your stubborn head doesn't listen at all to me
my feelings are not worth it, pride is all you bleed

sitting on my couch fergusons burning to the ground
and i'm wishing it was me
go ahead and treat us like shit burn in hell for what you did
it wont change me
your no friend

find a reason find a reason to condemn me maybe
find a reason try and ruin me….find a reason to forget about me
Track Name: The Tale Of Darion And His Shitty Ass Friends
look in my eyes what do you fucking see
its a cult of apathy rotting the bones inside of me
oh im changing no longer cultivating
my lifes equivalent to alchemy
is there a problem with living life happily

tell me why my friends resent me now
it kills me that my idols shoot me down
yes oh im happy inside of me yet im treated like shit

im growing up and i don't think it sucks
its my life and its not so tough
until you break the ties holding me in line
oh you'll see then you'll see
how much you really fucking hurt me

i want hair dye and pins
i want patches
i want studs a mohawk and a leather jacket
i wanna be a skinhead
i wanna be a drunk
i wanna wear docs plaid pants i wanna be a pun
but im just a fucking poser
