about

“The record is magnetic - hooks inside hooks inside hooks in ear-sticky
concentric circles, yielding an embarrassment of melody.” - City Arts

Wild Knights takes us through the darkness of self-doubt, obsession, and the struggle of self-actualization; our champion eventually pulling an emotional sword from a heart of stone, only to find it still beating after all.

Track Name: The Petrified Forest
THE PETRIFIED FOREST
Gonna run through the jungle
With my head in a bag

You can never go back
You’ll have a heart attack

Gonna run through the jungle
With my head in a bag
Gonna dance through the desert
With the sun overhead

With my head in a bag
You can never go back
You’ll have a heart attack
Now take a shot of that

I’ll be falling over
Like every time I see you
There’s no need to be hollow
I’ll be petrified

So stiff and frozen solid
Like every time I see you
Where you’ll lead I’ll follow
I’ll be right behind
Trying to never catch you
PETRIFIED
Track Name: Simpleanimal
SIMPLEANIMAL
I can’t help myself
I’ve tried it before
And again after that
I can’t help myself

So I think about it
Think about it everyday
Can’t think about it
Think about it now

Used to keep me up
Like every night
Can’t think about it
Think about it now

I get off when I’m uneven
Even if you don’t believe it
I won’t laugh
if you won’t either
I refuse to be the leader
Track Name: Legend Of Kage
LEGEND OF KAGE
you’ve got me running
wild in a cage
one look at your face
and I can tell
it’s still the same
and it’s been a while
since I ate

you said I was strong
turns out not for long
they told me to beware
I don’t care

one look at my eye
and you’ll know
that I’m burning red
as I am going for the throat
and I think my head could explode

cause all you wanna do
is hold me back
and all I wanna do to you
is attack
I’d probably be fine
if left alone
Track Name: Paranoid Much?
PARANOID MUCH?
You keep insisting
Everybody’s Always after me
I look over my shoulder
And you’re gone

You keep insisting
Everybody’s Always after me
Insisting every tragedy
Is one of three
I look over my shoulder
And you’re gone

Could have sworn I heard
You left the party after me
Insisting everybody’s
Always after me
I don’t know why
Disaster has to follow me
I look over my shoulder
And you’re gone

Maybe you were never there
I spent the whole night
Staring at the air
After the sunset
Before the break of dawn
I found you gone
But not forgotten
Maybe you were never there
Track Name: Falling Down
FALLING DOWN
I'm always falling down
And I'm never getting up
I may be on the ground
But I'm never giving up
You can't make this stuff up

Talking is easy
When you get started
I'll start with a vodka
Soda with lemon
One to get lucid
Two to go further
Three to go faster
Four to go nowhere
Anyway

I've been
Shackled by the world
And I've fallen down hard
I still seek
Shelter from the storm
Can't wish it away

I won't be shut up
I can't hardly stand up
My knees are shot Jello
Weren't we in this together
Now hey man
What are you doing?
Swear I won't be cutoff
I'll fake grab my sawed-off
Probably end up shooting
Myself in the foot

I'm always falling down
And I'm never getting up
I may be on the ground
But I'm never giving up
It'll take some time
But I'm gonna pick it up
I'm always falling down
And I'm never getting up
Track Name: The Ballad Of Barbarella
THE BALLAD OF BARBARELLA
Drop it! Drop it in
The hole you dug
Whoa oh
Drop it! Drop it in
The hole you dug
Sometimes life
Seems so unfair

Every other day's
Like every other day
I get up in the morning
Just to sleep all day

When you get home
To the house I'm living in
Thought I'd Never
see you again
And my heart beats
Heavier than ever
For the good times
Lay in wait

Every other day's
Like every other day
I don't know where
The time goes
‘Til it's time to play

Down the street from
From the house I’m living in
There’s a big beautiful lake
In the summer
The sum, the summer
I’ll be swimming in
For the good times
Lay in wait
Track Name: Street Fighter
STREET FIGHTER
It’s killing time
Tonight it will be killing time
Till then I’ll be killing time
Tonight we will be killing time
Let’s go out and see
What kind of trouble we can
Inappropriately timed
You stepped up to find
There will be Hell to pay
for this

I’ve gotta back my baby
Lay the bass drum down
So get into my face
Or get out of it now
This is the start of something

You gave yourself away
That you are on fire for me
And I burn for you
This is the start of something
Track Name: Past The Point
PAST THE POINT
Nineteen ninety-two
Was the year I first met you
There could not have been
A dark cloud in the sky
The forecast was wrong

CUT TO:
Two thousand-two
I came across a picture of you
Standing next to someone
I don’t recognize
It turned out to be me

I’ll make my peace
With you, not tonight
Put it off
If I can get away with it
I set fire to you belonging
Moving on and up
I can’t deal with that

I couldn’t burn my
most precious memory
Some sentimental side of me
Can’t go through with it
Burning my most favorite photo of us

Oh how my eyes are sensitive
to light
You’re still the brightest light in my universe
We were together
but now forever
The remains of us stain
this picture frame

I couldn’t burn my
most precious memory
Some spiteful switch in me
Might set a match to it
Burning my most favorite photo of us

There’s no need to discuss
There is no future for us
Way past the point of no return
Track Name: Loose Molars
LOOSE MOLARS
I’ve lost my faith
Which I equate to a toothache
One I’ve let go on too long

I’ve lost my nerve
I need a head-on collision
Like I need a sign from God

I can’t make it up to you now
It would take a miracle
For me to not let you down

I’ve lost my heart
Not to say I ever had one
Or ever the human race
So let’s pretend
We never had this conversation
In which I stated my case
so clearly

Stand up and be a man
Act like you give a damn
I’ve extended my hand
Take it and shake it, friend

I can’t make it up to you now
It would take a miracle
For me to not let you down

Stand up and be a man
Tell me you have a plan
I’m reaching out my hand
Act like you give a damn
Tell me you understand
I’ve extended my hand
Take it and shake it friend

I’ve lost my faith
Which I equate to a toothache
One I’ve let go on too long
Promise me this
You’ll take my name off
your hit list
If I visit the dentist
Track Name: Young Guns II
YOUNG GUNS II
You’ve got young guns
And I’ve got young guns too
Let’s get together
And waste the whole afternoon
I need a companion
I’m looking for a champion
And though I never thought
I’d make it work
Until I started falling for
You’ve probably heard it
many times, You’re gold

How in this world
Could such a beautiful face
Get together
If this is losing control
Then I need a companion
I’m looking for a champion

You know you’ve probably
Heard it many times
You’re gold

You’ve got gremlins
And I’ve got gremlins too
Wrestle your demons
Let’s waste the whole afternoon
