about

It took me a while to understand how to make a new album. I knew it couldn't be more of the same thing, because Green was so unique. It took a while because it's hard to find free time working as a freelance musician in New York. If there is anything I want people to understand about this album, it is that it was done for free, in the room where I live and sleep, with my closest friends. Even if this band were to take off and have an amazing budget for future projects, I never want to change the fact that making an album just means hanging out and having fun where we all live. I think that's so important for this group. I'm so thankful every single day that this is actually my life, and I can’t wait to see what this release does for us. If you're reading this, sharing our music, playing it for your friends, and letting it mean something to you, you are the reason that I'm able to do what I love, and I cannot put into words how thankful I am for that. Next time you see me tell me I owe you a hug because that's the least I can do. XOXO, Gossip Girl.

Track Name: Forget Me
Stop calling me up in the middle ofthe night

to redeem yourself and make it all feel right

I ain't a one-stop-shop or some kind of animal



Instead of talking to me, you should be living your life

put on your best outfit and go dance tonight

'cause you might be surprised by the time that passed you by



'Cause I've been around the world, and it sure ain't what you think it is

Baby it's because ofthe American mold

Go get a one way ticket toward a place that you ain't never been before

You gotta man up to reach your goals



Quit complaining to me, you should heed my advice

you gotta let me go, get ahold of your life

I’ll tell you one last thing before you leave tonight



I will never let you forget me, for your whole life I’ll be your best memory

'Cause it's been plenty of time now see how

I’m moving on and you got your head up in the clouds



Stop calling me up in the middle of the night,

you need to get a new life so you can get outta mine (Hey)



(Get in line boy)



I will never let you forget me



(Alright, alright)



Stop calling me up in the middle of the night,

you need to get a new life so you can get outta mine (4x)



I will never let you forget me, for your whole life I’ll be your best memory

'Cause it's been plenty of time now see how

you're the only one here that’s freakin' out

I’m moving on and you got your head up in the clouds

I will never let you forget me
Track Name: Bad One (The Black Gate Opens)
Some say that darkness never will amount to much,

‘cause the moon gives way to the morning sun

Well the sun has set, but here comes the heat



Through the haze, across the sea

I could never live in that fantasy

What's a tree to you is a branch to me



What's goin' on in that world I left ya,

‘cause I turn the heat on and then I slept,

You never know when I could come sneaking back

‘cause they be standin' up and I be knocking 'em flat,

‘cause I'm the bad one



You can knock me out but I'mma hold on to my human form,

Comin' from the stronghold of Daguldor,

before you see me, you are gonna feel the storm



I see your war and that fire and it's coming for me,

Feelin' your presence every night now, swift and cunning

The light will fail and you'll be left alone

with only dark inside, and no place to go



Top ofthe world still belongs to me,

‘cause I'm comin' back down to reality

Lay your weapons down, accept your defeat



What's goin' on in that world I left ya,

‘cause I turn the heat on and then I slept,

you never know when I could come sneaking back

‘cause they be standin' up and I be knocking 'em flat

‘cause I'm the bad one



You can knock me out but I'mma hold on to my human form,

Comin' from the stronghold of Daguldor,

before you see me, you are gonna feel the storm



‘cause I'm the power that you're never gonna get back

everything you've foreseen is gonna collapse

Escape to the west, ‘cause the dark returns,

before everything you love burns



Break me, help me feel again,

The Black Gate has been opened

The One Ring has never fallen

The light will fail and you'll be left alone,

with only dark inside, and no place to go



(Help me feel again)
Track Name: Static Heart
Never been the type of girl that’d give her soul to the world

Never had a reason to before I had you

Paid the price in the past, so many loves that didn't last

Tryin'a own up to my feelings face to face



I'm not weak, but you made me stronger

I'm not cold, but you keep me warm

I'm not lost, but you give me purpose

Finally you can make me whole, change my world tonight



Getting tired of this static heart

To let you in is the hardest part

You're the light and I'm in the dark

Say goodbye to my static heart (2x)



Your love’s the reason that I'm here,

I haven't chased myself away

You give me words for all the things I thought that I could never say

I know I'm hard to understand, you know I'm standing on the edge

See the colors start to fade, and just the two of us remain



I'm not weak, but you made me stronger

I'm not cold, but you keep me warm

I'm not lost, but you give me purpose

Finally you can make me whole, change my world tonight



Getting tired of this static heart

To let you in is the hardest part

You're the light and I'm in the dark

Say goodbye to my static heart



Getting tired of this static heart

To let you in is the hardest part

Take my hand, we can hit restart

Say goodbye to my static heart (2x)
Track Name: Drown In This Wreck
I’ve been wandering all night

Through these darkened streets I fly

Couldn't stand to stay at home,

so I packed my bags to roam



You lost the fire and the drive,

lost what it meant to be free

We have to climb, keep up the fight,

and make a new life

for all the world to see, oh



We can feel this falling off,

we’ve worked so hard to get to the top, but I know

I’ve lost the feel for you

We can't let go of what we've got,

need to stay afloat and make the sinking stop, but i know

I’ll drown in this wreck



(Chorus)



See the world in black and white

Forgot how colors made you feel

Tried to share with you my light

Maybe my world is too surreal



(Pre Chorus)



We can feel this falling off

We've worked so hard to get to where we are

We need to stay afloat the waves are overhead,

and we’ll drown in this wreck

We can feel this falling off

We've worked so hard to get to where we are

We need to stay afloat to make the sinking stop

The waves are overhead, and we’ll drown in this wreck, oh
Track Name: The Line
Cutting through the air, I can feel you already saying “Goodbye,”

Silent words from your head creeping into mine

This is where I draw the line



I'm getting away from you tonight, I'm moving on

Now I'm finally awake and I see the light ofthe sun

Shine down on me now, can you fill my soul?

This is where I draw the line



Keep it raw, 'pon the floor, let the drums freak ya (10x)



I want you to know that I gave you my all

I started feeling trapped, you pushed me 'til I cracked

I fell to pieces, I want them back



I'm getting away from you tonight, I'm moving on

Now I'm finally awake and I see the light ofthe sun

Shine down on me now, can you fill my soul?

We're at the finish line



Keep it raw, 'pon the floor, let the drums freak ya (4x)



I'll get away from you tonight, this is where I draw the line (2x)



(Chorus)
Track Name: Do We
(Doistey Boys)
Track Name: Riverbed
I wanna walk down the riverbed, put my feet in the ice cold water

Wanna lay my head into the grass, dream of where we're gonna go

And when I make it there, another house becomes a home to you

Tell me what would I do?



Every day we see and grow,

Remember what we used to know

Things were easier back then

What happened to the way we're living?



We used to be so young, we were so secure with our

routines and our big dreams

We could break our own falls, now we can't anymore

Here we are now, we've said our own vows

We've got nothing left, I've lost at this bet, oh



Shout out at the moon, I'm getting tired of waiting for truth

I'm drinkin' at noon, straight drinking to truth

And every time I fill my cup, I feel more like I'm not enough

I ain't playin' the fool, I'mma find myself a new melody soon

I'm a victim of youth, straight victim of youth

And now ya see how I'm all grown up

I understand the jokes in Breakfast Club



So long since I've felt whole, dreaming brings me close

Living long enough, feeling takes its toll

So long since I've felt whole, dreaming brings me close
Track Name: Mistakes
I'm in the car as I wait, I've never had this feeling

To pass the time I read through all our first few conversations

I've never had this feeling



Do you really wanna know the truth or

is that something I keep from you?

Should I hold back or be free?

How do I keep you from leaving?

I've never had this feeling



I hear a sound when you breathe

Are we here or dreaming?

Our worlds collide

Next thing you know is only where you're standing

You take me away from hurting



Then you put your lips together,

meet me halfway across the room

The hours go by, we stay awake

How could I mistake this feeling?

I've never had this feeling
Track Name: Tail Lights
I work hard to get my life the way I want it to be,

and now I can't explain the way I feel when you're around me

Take a trip around the world, so many sights to be seen

All the wonders in the world couldn't replace what you used to mean



Set me free from this one way street

‘cause all I see is tail lights when I look into your eyes

Let me go before you ring my soul dry,

waiting for you to come around so we can tame our love



I’m captivated by the stars and how slowly they change

Our family names will come and go and all our memories will fade

Everything we've ever known, they'll watch it float away

It will pass them by in the blink of an eye, only they remain



Set me free from this one way street

‘cause all I see is tail lights when I look into your eyes

Let me go before you ring my soul dry,

waiting for you to come around so we can tame our love (2x)
