Over and under, all the time that I want Looking for cover everything that I got I’m missing a feeling, searching for thunder and fire Keep your heart beating, don’t want to think of any other Creatures of comfort, unknown Chasing a shadow of doubt I didn’t think we ran wrong tell me when the money’s run out I will call, keep your eyes open, always something on my mind I will call, keep your eyes open, always running to our creatures of comfort I will call in the middle of the night Nobody feels like I do Check and see that your ringer’s on Keep your eyes on screen glow When it’s raining, engine turns over coming on over Sun rising, violet horizon, days are getting warmer I will call, keep your ears open, always something on my mind I will call, keep your ears open, always running to our creatures of comfort I know that you’re hurting, we are sickle and drought Keep your eyes open, we ain’t giving up now No, I’m not messing around, why you telling lies Feel likes my head’s in the clouds, I’m already feeling alright Though I don’t understand why, you talk to me at all Feel like I’m already fine, I’m alright Creatures of comfort, unknown Chasing a shadow of doubt I didn’t think we ran wrong tell me when the money’s run out I will call, keep your ears open, always something on my mind I will call, keep your ears open, always running to our creatures of comfort

Most Of Us 03:21
Most of us only care about making money Some of us try to keep it all line We’ve got our jobs, we’ve got our wives, we’ve got our cars, and we’ve got our houses too Please don’t let it go Please don’t let it go Most of us are running around and we are counting time Some of us are running around and we got time on are side You better believe it, I don’t mind That I’m wasting my time Some of us only care about the lives that we’re living Fighting with each other and making things harder Let’s play truth or dare, let’s play with fire Run the world around and burn it down to the wire Most of us are running around and we are counting time Some of us are running around and we got time on are side You better believe it, I don’t mind That I’m wasting my time Most of us, only care about it Please don’t let it, let it go Let it go Most of us are running around and we are counting time Some of us are running around and we got time on are side You better believe it, I don’t mind That I’m wasting my time Most of us counting time Most of us got time on our side You better believe it, I don’t mind That I’m wasting time

Fake News 02:28
We are circling all around this star With nothing but influence and outside info and scars We are riding in the back of beat down car The humming of pavement and the wheels to carry us far In the end all we are, is a mess, of emotion on fire Trying to behave, trying break through our chains and devote enough time to be happy trying to be better and keep it together but it’s hard When the news is spewing their views and the radicals breaking your heart Feeling pretty angry, feeling alright, feeling like having a drink and then starting a fight Bust out through the window, rolling on the streets, kicking and screaming and beating and clawing Pretty neat Call It all Human learning experience, temporarily diverging from higher learning, and backwards evolving, slowly revolving, into the sea you know what I mean and it’s hard to be okay with this scene

Holding my breath for something that may not come, could be a million to one Well it hit me on my head on the head like a rabbit running from a gun, This waiting is getting old And I’m not feeling in control should I be worried If the dog doesn’t sink its teeth into me as I run I don’t want to stop, if you give me some love, give it a chance Could you be the one to make me give it up, I think I’m falling fast We’re in over our heads It’s that feeling you get when your holding someone you love Could be a million to one If you don’t understand than you never get enough Explaining is getting old And I’m not feeling in control, should I be worried If the dog doesn’t sink its teeth me as I run, run I don’t want to stop, if you give me some love, give it a chance Could you be the one to make me give it up, I think I’m falling fast We’re in over our heads

Animal 03:44
Understanding all these days, makes you feel like dirt Hard to hold it lost your way, never a clean shirt Hold on to whatever, thinking of these fever dreams Stop and think more than ever, trying not to scream What do you run from, what makes you hide? What makes you feel like an Animal? Where do you go in lieu of facing your fears, what do you do when an animal gets you? Pushing forward make mistakes, everyone gets hurt Minor problems major breaks, keep your ears alert Hold on to whatever, thinking of these paper leaves Stop and think pull the lever, break into the armory What do you run from, what makes you hide? What makes you feel like an Animal? Where do you go in lieu of facing your fears, what do you do when an animal gets you? Understanding, hard to hold to it, pushing forward, lost your way Understanding all these days, Pushing forward make mistakes You emerge from the darkness with nothing to lose and step into the fire when an animal gets you What do you run from, what makes you hide? What makes you feel like an Animal? Where do you go in lieu of facing your fears, what do you do when an animal gets you? You emerge from the darkness with nothing to lose Emerge from the darkness with nothing to lose Turn your back on the fire or it consumes you Turn you back on the darkness or an animal gets you

Desire 04:43
It feels thicker than water And it’s hard to get a hold of it I’m clouds on the coast, I’m your later father’s ghost I am lightning I am thunder, I’m your unborn daughter I am desire, I’m the thing that makes you feel like you can’t get any higher I am what I am, desire It was 1988 when I cut myself from the wire I begin to hallucinate, I set myself on fire I believe in complete disaster I thought that it could burn down I don’t claim to know the answer I’m the first to pull the trigger now Desire How did it get to be this bad? With a keyboard and the internet Firing off ballistics into the abyss with a hundred and forty characters Will I finally get to know where he stands tonight? Will I finally be able to paint him in an honest light It was 1988 when I cut myself from the wire I begin to hallucinate, I set myself on fire I believe in complete disaster I thought that it could burn down I don’t claim to know the answer I’m the first to pull the trigger now Desire I believe in complete disaster I thought that it could burn down I don’t claim to know the answer I’m the first to pull the trigger now Desire Desire I believe in complete disaster I believe in complete disaster

Alive 03:24
It’s so funny what you think is a rule You get caught up in trying to be cool Only half the things you do make sense But everything’s a mean to an end Walking in a straight line, everything in black and white Think I drank too much, oh tell me do I seem alright Throw my hands into my pockets in an effort to stop this But it won’t turn down this pike We’re too high but tonight won’t last forever I think that it’ll be alright Every day we get is just a new beginning We’re lucky just to be alive Think I got a fever, ninety proof that I am wrong [you’re still alive but you’re not on your own] Waiting for the come down, ready for the new dawn [you’re still alive but you’re not on your own] For now, I’m a boy about town, forty’s in hands and I’m down We’re too high but tonight won’t last forever I think that it’ll be alright Every day we get is just a new beginning We’re lucky just to be alive Lucky just to be alive Lucky just to feel alive Every day we get is just a new beginning, doing our best to try Every chance we get we’re scratching at the surface We’re burning just to be Burning just to be Just to be We’re too high but tonight won’t last forever I know in the morning we can piece it back together Every day we get is just a new beginning I know in the morning we can get back to thinking We’re too high but tonight won’t last forever I know in the morning we can piece it back together In this moment there’s no time Because I’m lucky just to feel alive

Jealousy 04:42
I don’t think that I get jealous, but I know that I show it When I see you with him, I can barely believe it And it feels like I’m dying, but it beats the hell out of living It’s not for a lack of trying, doing the best with what I’m given I don’t think that I’m that bad But jealousy’s my harmony and I’m living alone with it I don’t think that I get jealous I feel like I’m own Feel like I’m all alone Think I’ve got a fever for freaks, I might have known I been holding back for weeks, but got to know Do you think that I, am stepping out of line When I am looking at my phone with you always on my mind I feel like that’s alright, but who am I to decide When I’ve already lost my mind I don’t think that I get jealous, but I know that I show it When I see you with him, I can barely believe it And it feels like I’m dying, but it beats the hell out of living It’s not for a lack of trying, doing the best with what I’m given I don’t think that I’m that bad But jealousy’s my harmony and I’m living alone with it I don’t think that I get jealous I don’t want to feel I don’t want to feel like I’m missing out There is so much that I try There is so much that I try to do but I fail I don’t think that I’m that bad But jealousy’s my harmony and I’m living alone with it I don’t think that I get jealous, but I know that I show it When I see you with him, I can barely believe it And it feels like I’m dying, but it beats the hell out of living It’s not for a lack of trying, doing the best with what I’m given I don’t think that I’m that bad But jealousy’s my harmony and I’m living alone with it

about

Holiday Friends Astoria, Oregon

Hailing from Astoria, Oregon Holiday Friends’ brand of pop is joyful and bright, marked by up-tempo hooks and shining melodies, by the dark growl of bass and tom, and by bright trills of synth and guitar rolling over tongue-in-cheek lyrics.
Learning gradually how to exist in an increasingly cynical landscape, they are sustained by play and the quick, precious joy that’s found between the notes
