I'm curious about your message But I won't reply I keep trying to not care Believe it, I don't mind If you still remember The last of our days My feelings are like embers (they) won't create new flames Last time I saw your shadow You were going nowhere I saw just a shadow A shadow going nowhere Going nowhere I'm appreciating your insistence I'm alive in your memory But I'm in love with the distance that keeps you away from me If you still remember The last of our days My feelings are like embers (they) won't create new flames Last time I saw your shadow You were going nowhere I saw just a shadow A shadow going nowhere Going nowhere

I used to not pray I gave up to keep my faith You say it ain't so Now I know I can transform all my common days Out of routine Just as I think I can feel free finally And despise my old black eye finding a place where I want to be And I will always owe you My attitude of gratitude is try to express all these thoughts that I've never dreamed of It's like pure joy and happiness But above of all this I'm not lost anymore And I will always owe you

Take a breath and keep calm Don't let them put you down Bad kings, useless crown A smile always beats a frown I’ve seen you sing before I’ve seen the crowd ask for more You can have your own way You can make it stay Stay We're gonna have it now Bring back you beat into town We're gonna have it right Those past troubles out of sight I’ve seen you sing before I’ve seen the crowd ask for more You can have your own way You can make it stay Stay

Can you hear me? There’s something I need to say I’ll try again In a very clear way Despite all the efforts to save ourselves We despised any excess I know about the portrait on our shelves and I really must confess In your company, I’ve found in you a friend In your company, I could comprehend In your company, feeling was a godsend In your company, everything has an end I laugh about all the things that we've done 'Cause now I realize that I'm better off alone Despite all the efforts to save ourselves We despised any excess I know about the portrait on our shelves and I really must confess In your company, I’ve found in you a friend In your company, I could comprehend In your company, feeling was a godsend In your company, everything has an end I saw it all clearer In your company

Every end is a brand new start Now you know Just feel the beat of your heart Let yourself go You need to learn how to face your fears Be sure about what you think you miss Erase these words you’ve written in the sand Pay attention to me In the mirror, you’re the same Now you see There’s no one left to blame Let it be You need to learn how to face your fears Be sure about what you think you miss Erase these words you’ve written in the sand Pay attention to me If you wanna feel it forever You are wasting time Forget old projects and be clever Your life can’t be a lie You need to learn how to face your fears Be sure about what you think you miss Erase these words you’ve written in the sand Pay attention to me If you wanna feel it forever You are wasting time Forget old projects and be clever Your life can’t be a lie If you wanna feel it Every end is a brand new start Now you know

Come Back 03:35
Everyday, when you wake up You remember those days The world brought something new and you always gazed You were free to misbehave You were the one Now you can't describe where all your friends have gone Did you remember that day when you figured out something pure? Can you relive those days when there was nothing left to lose? Everyday, when you go to bed You expect new dreams You learned what really matters 'Cause nothing's as it seems You were free to misbehave You were the one Now you can't describe where all your friends have gone Did you remember that day when you figured out something pure? Can you relive those days when there was nothing left to lose? Come back, come back to your childhood Did you remember that day when you figured out something pure? Can you relive those days when there was nothing left to lose? I’m sorry, but you can’t

Mother, release me Can I go outside? Tell me, why don’t you let the world be mine? People bleed and hurt you Your father has abandoned me And pain has become a friend of mine Forgive me, but I won't let you go with my unanswered whys People bleed and hurt you Don't go outside People bleed and hurt you I'll take care of you

The leaves fall in these sad streets There’s no trace or sounds Forgotten notes from your past They’re just what you found When you unlock that old door A long trip will start Through the times and places That now seem so far And you can’t stop thinking about it And you can’t stop thinking about it now You open the window And see the sun goes down There’s a familiar feeling That lives in this quiet town These walls heard your confessions They know who you are in fact But you can feel sure ‘cause All your best secrets are kept And you can’t stop thinking about it And you can’t stop thinking about it now Oh why do I feel so blame? Is it because everything has changed? Oh why can’t we be the same? Won’t we have another chance? And you can’t stop thinking about it And you can’t stop thinking about it now

Fairy Tale 04:25
My poor prose and my silly verse never make your reality disperse I failed to try my own perfect rhyme Our dialogue is something like a mime But I wanna make all your dreams come true And your happiness My major breakthrough That's all I want I see a life full of will and wrath I see lost souls searching a path You're not alone If you believe in fairy tale That's all I got to offer you by now Looking at you, I can realize There's something strange in your eyes Maybe your sadness could be all mine I'm feeling like a mirror, I’ll send you a sign But I wanna make all your dreams come true And your happiness My major breakthrough That's all I want I see a life full of will and wrath I see lost souls searching a path You're not alone If you believe in fairy tale That's all I got to offer you by now

I’m so far from anywhere No one can hurt me again In the middle of nowhere Solitude is my only friend It’s just me winds and tides That take away my memory A regret is like a raincloud And disappears in the infinity The sky is my roof And the stars take care of me It’s just another night In the place where I find peace The golden ocean I’m so far from anywhere No one can hurt me again In the middle of nowhere Solitude is my only friend The sky is my roof And the stars take care of me It’s just another night In the place where I find peace The golden ocean

about

Faux Nostalgia is an amalgam of 90s-inspired distortions, melodies and rhythms. The album brings a familiar sound for fans of Superdrag, Pin Ups, Superchunk, Second Come, Dinosaur Jr., Killing Chainsaw and many other alternative rock acts that were part of the teenage soundtrack of an entire generation. Adding to the confessional lyrics that deal with the usual questions in the transition between young age and adulthood, Faux Nostalgia is an invitation to reflect on our experiences and how they made us who we are today.
