about

This is the debut album from post-emo rockers, Verb the Noun (that's us!). Hailing from Orange County, CA, we eschewed the sickly-sweet facade of our surroundings and channeled our frustration into 9 blistering tracks ranging from pop punk to post-hardcore and everywhere in-between. With influences as varied as the Deftones, Brand New, Title Fight, Bon Iver, The Wonder Years, and System of a Down, this is a melting pot of a record that showcases the simple feeling of not being where you need to be, and wanting more out of life.

We want to thank all of our friends for making this record possible. Will and Sief, without you guys there would be nothing to listen to at all, so please accept our heartfelt gratitude. Everyone else, you support us through all of the tough times. We are proud to call our friends our family.

Track Name: (outside)
*instrumental*
Track Name: Looking in
I am seeing my way out to lose what was once found
I am flying ever higher and I cannot touch the ground
I see myself in front of me and its scary to think
So I let myself go a little more and let my thoughts shrink

I stepped outside myself today
I looked back what did I see
Growing outside I felt alone
I saw myself for the first time and I'm not okay
It felt nice to lose my mind

All aboard on this train
take the fast way out
You missed it, such a shame
Now get your feet on the ground
Don't feel bad, hold it back, I know
You're fed up with that
all the slights that have been shot your way
just grow up

I stepped outside myself today
I looked back what did I see
Growing outside I felt alone
I saw myself for the first time and I'm not okay
It felt nice to lose my mind

Up here I'm on my way down
and I can see my true colors
and I swear I've been here before
and I swear I can't be dreaming

I stepped outside myself today
I looked back what did I see
Growing outside I felt alone
I saw myself for the first time
It felt nice to lose my mind
Track Name: Goodbye, I Guess
I stood on the shore and thought
"What more could I ask for"
With the breeze holding me up
And the water breaking at my feet
I'm gonna miss this
When you leave and go away
Most people tell you not to look back
But like the wife of Lot
I will turn around and fall like salt to the ground
I can feel my body tumbling at the thought
But I must press on
All I need is one reason to let it go
And although I have several
I can't let go of the pain I will cause you
The tears you will cry
The love you feel I will be leaving behind
But it's time for me to start
To move forward
To let go of all that I have lost
So I back away from the shore
I turn my head away from the wind
Forget the feeling it gives me
When the breeze holds me up
(When the breeze holds me up)
And it breaks up at my feet
(And it breaks at my feet)
I'm gonna miss this
(I'm gonna miss this)
When the breeze holds me up
(When the breeze holds me up)
And it breaks up at my feet
(And it breaks at my feet)
I'm gonna miss this, I'm gonna miss
(I'm gonna miss this)
Don't let me go
I'm gonna miss this
(I'm gonna miss this)
I'm gonna miss this
Track Name: Gaze
And I see you as you walk into my room
My eyes stuck to you, I'm blue
And the worst part of it all
Is I can't tell you to your face
As you come closer, thoughts mesh
Minds melt, into flesh
And the worst part of it all
Is I can't tell you to your face
Pencil and paper, tongue and cheek
Jesus you'll never really know what you meant to me
And the worst part of it all
Is I can't tell you to your face
To your face
Track Name: Fever Spikes in Everyday Life
*instrumental*
Track Name: Throwaway Soul
Took a walk down to the park and I watched your breath define your figure in the air and I felt lost, so lost in compare
I'd light a fire in your hearth, the smoke a signal for you to take a closer look, I promise I'm worth your love, your time, your love
Been skipping stones across your lake but the surface remains untouched

Trying to sink one deep so I can reach under your skin, unlatch the door and let myself in

Without your arms, your arms to hold, hold up my strings I've been writing countless eulogies to every aspect of me
I'm having trouble saying I'm worth something (I feel like nothing) unless someone I love says it for me but that's not okay

I need to breath my own air. I need to write my own words. I need to focus on the fact that I'm alive and yes this hurts but the sun will rise again and I will be a better man

Without your arms, your arms to hold, hold up my strings I've been writing countless eulogies to every aspect of me
I'm having trouble saying I'm worth something (I feel like nothing) unless someone I love says it for me, won't you say it for me?
Track Name: Milk
Where does my mind go when it's put to the test
Where does the body go when it's been laid to rest
Following my leaders who when took faith to heart
Drug the followers into the dark and tore them apart

And I refuse to talk about it

Do you follow your heart or your eyes
And to anyone a home sounds nice up in the skies
So I set my sights to what I refused to be the truth and continued on with my life

And I refuse to talk about it
All the lies and deception and all the people around it
Blood and knots don't last forever and I know these words upset your mind

"I know this is hard to understand this is all part of his plan"

And I refuse to talk about it
Track Name: Where I'm Going (I Don't Know)
I can't feel my voice any more
My arms and legs stiff, my throat sore
You can't cheat on life with a pen and paper
You can't cheat on life with a pen and paper
I am tied to my own post
I can feel my fate going towards the coast
But I don't know, where I'm going

But I don't know, where I'm going
Track Name: DUI
If you sink, we'll sink together
In this world we call our home with our errors of old
They say the past is the past and we should never look back
But what now that your record is drenched in black?
But the world knows it's the innocent that get left behind
No longer will their brightness shine
So the pigs and their dirt will get you for what your worth

And now you're freezing cold with no ones hand to hold

If I can't see you how will I know you'll be alright?
And if I know you're hurt, will my absence just give you more pain and strife?

And I'm sorry
And I'm sorry

Now they're holding you in for an honest mistake, now your trial begins
They'll treat you like dirt until your own self worth is hanging from a wire

But don't let them get to you, there's nothing else you can do

If I can't see you how will I know you'll be alright?
And if I know you're hurt will my absence just give you more pain and strife?
And I'm sorry that I wasn't your first one to come to
And I'm sorry you mistook me for a thief of your trust

And I know that you don't have anything to do with what happened here
Just sleep it off and when you dream, dream of things that are comforting
Because I am here, I won't go anywhere
No I won't leave you here

And I know that you don't have anything to do with what happened here (I'm changing)
Just sleep it off and when you dream, dream of things that are comforting (and fading)
Because I am here, I won't go anywhere (it's not the same)
No I won't leave you here (a whole new game)
