about

The Monochromatic EP is the first release of Explorers. It is a dynamic album encompassing many of the band members musical influences culminating in a distinguished sound. The EP is not like anything else in the musical climate today. Some will love it, some will not. For those who do, Explorers is a niche hard to fill with anything, or anyone else.

Track Name: Guilty
Please all she gives is lust
But oh god it's enough, to deconstruct

She said You love what you're doing to me,
Draw me in with promises so slowly
Breathe out and tell me what's unholy
I said I love it when, oh when you say we're lonely

My eyes, we're only made to drive her mad
But it's hard to miss what you never had

I said You love what you're doing to me,
Draw me in with promises so slowly
Breathe out and tell me what's unholy
I love it when, oh when you say we're lonely

You love what you're doing to me,
Draw me in with promises so slowly
Breathe out and tell me what's unholy
I love it when, oh when you say we're lonely
Track Name: Razors
Oh baby really, you need to tell me the truth
Yeah shes so pretty but I came and I was thinking of you
The worst, I've
Ever lied,
was that I didn't love it
You'll cry
Ill smile
Promises mean nothing

Without a thought, you cut my world in two
And I can't tell what's worse, blood for me or bleeding for you

Oh baby twist your hips like, I can't see
And one more drink like, nothings happening
Neck bites
Tired eyes
Dark rooms hide the shame
Intertwined
Sin in mind
Scream when I say you're name

Without a thought, you cut my world in two
And I can't tell what's worse, blood for me or bleeding for you
Track Name: Frozen Existence
A single word is all I ask, that's all I have,
Because you are just so unforgettable.
And your making me feel, so confused
You don't know what you can do.

a single glance rolls around,
and I fall to the ground,
Why can't you see your haunting me.

She has don't love me, written on her lips.
But legibly, its shown in her hips.
When no ones home, a crying plea.
She speaks of grace but her eyes tell another story.

a single glance rolls around, and I fall to the ground,
Why can't you see your haunting me.
Track Name: Princes
I admit I waste away
for the first one who knows my name,
But maybe this ones mine.
It seems I can't give myself a moment of silence,
Don't tell me that I'm fine.

Isn't it selfish to be overjoyed
By attention I get from drowning in my void.

It's breaks me, to wonder what I'll do
I hate it, not living but waiting through.

I'm tired of feelings less,
But that feeling splits and digresses,
Into my bones.
Right now I'm driving myself to the ground
And manically tossing euphoria around,
For now I've got worth.

So
no more guys who think they're princes, fuck all the girls go to Princeton, and everybody with daddy's riches, don't get a thing about this

no more guys who think they're princes, fuck all the girls that'll go to Princeton, and everybody with daddy's riches, oh I wish we didn't want it!

It's breaks me, to wonder what I'll do
that's the point of living, waiting through.
Track Name: Heart Song
Stand perfectly still, just to be queen
Your love bled out through clenched teeth
Sitting in back rooms, with no witnesses
The darks Forming intricate, images, innocent, sentences now

Ooh Waiting for you
ooh
Ooh Waiting for you

Nerves shot like bullets into your chest
That beat out the pulses, only for rest
Take hold of you're flatlines, and make them break
I'll tell you and tell, but I can't do the same

Ooh Waiting for you
ooh
Ooh Waiting for you
Ooh

Heart beats like thunderstorms
I could never keep you warm with

Heart beats like thunderstorms
I could never keep you
Track Name: Six Word Stories (Live)
You think in stanzas, but you keep you're heart quiet
You have a sunny disposition and a rainy day smile
You want so badly, to break from you're skin,
Isn't it a tragedy that we're all better within

Spin you're words like fabric that you're covered in to hide
Sin and ballroom magic, are more than simple lies

Give me you're letters,
written on a bar, table napkin with a pen,
that was stronger than my words
Send me you're heartbreak,
masquerading as a happy little face,
and hope I get the message

Small talk, wasn't really ever for you or me
But we kept it for normal formalities
That to abide by, was treason all the same
In our minds, the others were all to blame

Spin you're words like fabric that you're covered in to hide
Sin and ballroom magic, are more than simple lies

Give me you're letters,
written on a bar, table napkin with a pen,
that was stronger than my words
Send me you're heartbreak,
masquerading as a happy little face,
and hope I get the message
Track Name: Factory Floors (Live)
This is for the nights when it's cold for you,
put on your jacket and step into my view,
let memories waste away to make something new
I had letters written without an address,
with a smirk and a twist you made me confess,
we laid in parking lots and factory floors

The workers take leave after you've left,
to sow your heart into my chest,
the workers return from your gaze and it burns,
but they arrive again and again

String sentence and sentence like it hasn't been years,
since I've had my mind so perfect and clear,
heartbroken to hear you're head over heels in love
you've been betrayed by starry nights and liquor,
if I wasn't sure I would've left quicker,
take what you want as long as you stay

The workers take leave after you've left,
to sow your heart into my chest,
the workers return from your gaze and it burns,
but they arrive again and again
