Tear Me Down 03:07
I took some time to think about my life And realized I wasted the last few years of it with you So I felt compelled to let you know That I've still got bigger and better things left to do You're the storm that comes and takes away the sunlight Your hail and winds level everything in sight You tear me down, you tear me down I'll prove you wrong, and make something of myself To you there's no such thing as decency I don't know what made you lose your faith in me Did you have it in the first place? Your disrespect must have made you too blind to see You're the storm that comes and takes away the sunlight Your hail and winds level everything in sight You tear me down, you tear me down I'll prove you wrong, and make something of my… Of myself You're the storm that comes and takes away the sunlight Your hail and winds level everything in sight You tear me down, you tear me down I'll prove you wrong, and make something of myself

Lost Touch 03:11
We haven't spoken in a few How's the east coast treating you? Dear Erika, congratulations You exceeded all your expectations Accomplished things you never thought you'd do I hope that you're doing okay A thousand miles away I know that we've lost touch But please don't lose touch with yourself We haven't spoken in a few You know Chicago misses you Dear Erika, congratulations You escaped the cold midwest frustrations You'll make us proud no matter what you do I hope that you're doing okay A thousand miles away I know that we've lost touch But please don't lose touch with yourself And when you come back home We'll fuck shit up just like we used to Just like we used to I hope that you're doing okay A thousand miles away I know that we've lost touch But please don't lose touch with yourself And when you come back home We'll fuck shit up just like we used to Just like we used to

Braindead 03:24
Your face, it glows But it's unnatural You're clicking keys so rapidly You're living your life through a screen You want to see the world But you're confined to this machine Well life means more to me Just listen and you'll see That it's more than just breathing Go make some memories Take control of this world surrounding you Because you don't know when your time is through You crave this false sense of attention Won't quit until you're fed The means won't ever bring an end It's a matter of time before you're fucking braindead No one is safe We're all falling astray Well I'm surrounded by so many people but I'm feeling so alone 'Cause everybody's staring down at their fucking phones Experience is a word that's foreign We've all become so boring Well life means more to me Just listen and you'll see That it's more than just breathing Go make some memories Take control of this world surrounding you Because you don't know when your time is through You crave this false sense of attention Won't quit until you're fed The means won't ever bring an end It's a matter of time before you're fucking braindead Well life means more to me Just listen and you'll see That it's more than just breathing Go make some memories Take control of this world surrounding you Because you don't know when your time is through You crave this false sense of attention Won't quit until you're fed The means won't ever bring an end It's a matter of time before you're fucking braindead

Sincerely Me 03:25
I ditched responsibility today Accelerator to the floor, I drove away I went to a place where No one's ever seen my face before I ditched responsibility today Just trying to close my eyes and get to sleep Escape this feeling by living in my dreams My eyelids shut but all I see Are tidal waves surrounding me I'm just trying to close my eyes and get to sleep I tried to come in but you built your walls higher I tried to get to you with water, wind, and fire But your bricks were too strong They left me weak-willed and weary So I'll write you this song And I'll sign it "Sincerely me" Maybe you'll let me in someday I don't know who I am at all today I've got no fucking clue what else to say We've been through this 100 times I guess 101 crossed the line I don't know who I am at all today I tried to come in but you built your walls higher I tried to get to you with water, wind, and fire But your bricks were too strong They left me weak-willed and weary So I'll write you this song And I'll sign it "Sincerely me" Maybe you'll let me in someday I know I'm not perfect, I've made my mistakes But now I'm the one lying in this bed that you made Don't know what you're thinking, not sure if you care Once easily fixed, it's now beyond repair It's beyond repair It's beyond repair I ditched responsibility today I tried to come in but you built your walls higher I tried to get to you with water, wind, and fire But your bricks were too strong They left me weak-willed and weary So I'll write you this song And I'll sign it "Sincerely..." Your bricks were too strong They left me weak-willed and weary So I'll write you this song And I'll sign it "Sincerely me" I hope you never let me in

I know what you've done So I'm gonna take this in my own hands White snow, I've got a gun So why don't you take your hand from his pants Motel room 25 I listen closely so I know it's your screams I fell and then I cried Kicked down the door, why'd you do this to me? Blonde hair and fearful eyes I'm pretty sure he doesn't like what he sees He's there and so am I And there you are, you're down on your knees "Oh Lord, please don't shoot" My veins are pulsing now that I'm really here Ignore, final salute A ringing as the sound enters my ear Shot in the shoulder Shot in the throat Shot in the face, now buddy for the Shot in my heart I know what you've done So I'm gonna take this in my own hands White snow, I've got a gun So why don't you take your hand from his pants Motel room 25 I listen closely so I know it's your screams I fell and then I cried Kicked down the door, why'd you do this to me? Shot in the shoulder Shot in the throat Shot in the face, now buddy for the Shot in my heart Shot in the shoulder Shot in the throat Shot in the face, now honey for the Shot in my heart What did you do to me? What did you do to me? What has become of me? What did you do to me?

about

about

Guardrail Chicago, Illinois

You could say that Guardrail is a punk band. They play fast loud music, so no one would argue with you. Loud loud loud. Fast fast fast. Blah blah blah. We're so over it. We want to be treated as the creators we are. We are gods of our own world. We have the power to make and to destroy. We're just not very good at it. We're bad gods. Bad to the bone. ... more
