about

"Necessary catharsis in the form of a ripping rock song."
- Leah Mandel, FADER

"they explode into searing riffs and wail in pure anguish, it’s a truly cathartic experience, one that seems to completely capture the discontent of the times" - DIY

"The Sea Life finds the Washington, DC noise-pop outfit weaving optimism into disillusionment" - Consequence of Sound

Track Name: Red Eyes
Suffocating depth, once a head, now a mess,
all the things you’ve loved now bring no pleasure

Your eyes are red
No words to be said
So red, so red
No home, no meds

Where to stand?
Against the choices that you’ve planned
Against the voices, that demand an answer

Will you take it to your grave?
Cause you’re fading and its a shame
That you’re trading your passion for a paycheck

Your eyes are red
Like the spinning of your head
So red, so red
No home, no meds

And are you depressed?
The cost of your success

What to believe
It’s blinding and I can’t see

Your eyes are red
Like the spinning of your head
So red, so red
No home no meds

Your eyes are red
So red, a window to your head
So red, so red
No home no meds
Track Name: Compensation
And it’s the same, yeah it’s the same problem. (I know, I know)
And that’s the way, that’s the way out of (I know, I know)
When you talk, well you catch all your feelings (I know, I know)
And that’s the way, to compensate addiction (I know, I know)

All the love that you’ve blown, your whole life is unknown (Cigarettes and Coffee)
That’s the way you’ve been shown, the only way that you’ve known (Cigarettes and Coffee)

A whole life you’ve disowned, a call on dial tone (Cigarettes and Coffee)
A whole life you’ve disowned, a call on dial tone (Cigarettes and Coffee)

And is it change, or is it something different? (I know, I know)
Such a waste, that you can feel so empty (I know, I know)
It’s like the sun, cause you can never touch it (I know, I know)
And that’s the way to compensate addiction (I know, I know)
Track Name: Let Me Out
A pain in the third degree,
You make a joke, condescendingly
The words you can’t comprehend
The nothing that steals, you befriend

Let me out (let me out)
Let me out (let me out)

The sign of your empty sleep
You take a step back, and then you repeat
You’re only enough if you want to be
Another locked door, and broken key

Let me out (let me out)
Let me out (let me out)

Don’t let it get inside of your head
And isn’t everyone a little bit sorrier when they’re dead
Let me out
Track Name: David Bowie
Unconscious Mind
Are you full time?
On the sidelines
Can I resign?

Was feeling tired
When you were wired
Don’t want to get fired

The overhead
That’s how you bled
It’s all streamlined
How to unwind

Was feeling tired
When you were wired
Don’t want to get fired

Taken what you want what you meant
It’s all there, it’s written in the cement
Take once, take twice, enough
Shake me down, will you shake me some more?
Track Name: Blame
I, don’t only blame you
Well I blame myself too

I blame it all on you
The colors you choose
I blame it all on you

Taken, you’re stuck and empty
You got your money
Do you feel alive?

I’m so empty
Is this the real me?
I’m not alone
I’m not the same

I, don’t only blame you
Well I blame myself too

I blame it all on you
The colors you choose
I blame it all on you
Track Name: Reaper
Resting wrists, don’t fear the doorbell
It’s the unknown
Hijacked thoughts and black holes
You found your void

The nothing that steals you from your breakfast
Are you dead?
Boredom warms you like a thick coat
Shed it off

Aching to find some safety
Not so fast
Falling and sleeping become a hobby
Can you wake up?
Boredom warms you like a thick coat
Shed it off
Track Name: Precious Dirt
Pack your coat pack your bag it’s after dark
A house that’s hollow reflects the heart
That’s not the only thing I taught myself
The skin turns black when on a shelf

After he disappears air turns to stone
A heavy weight that’s never shown

All and all you’ve moved out
Deep underground
Some precious dirt, a precious mound

Sleep well forgotten friend a boy so tall
You’ve cashed your chips, you’ve cashed it all
That’s the only thing I taught myself
The skin turns black when on a shelf
Track Name: Daymare
Shake my hand
Shake my whole life too
It’s not the same old stand
It’s not built for two
Enough, enough
You said I couldn’t sing
All I had, I gave you everything

What’s the plan?
What’s your whole life too
Am I insane?
I got a few screws loose
It’s not enough
That’s how I run away
That’s how I run away
Track Name: Is It Summit
You can take it when you’re empty
Another style, another feeling is it alright?
Is it breaking are you backwards
Can you see the abyss swallow?
Is it warmer is it summer?
Are you sweating, do you feel alive?

Don’t go
Feel it in you, escape it again
Another gamble, another white bend
It’s the same, a dark place
Another running, I can’t feel the pace

Is it summit, new intention
Is it timing, is it connection? (No)
I can take it, I can deal it, I can flip it
But the money’s all gone
Feel your bones are they shaking
Obey your slumber, a struggle to calcify
