about

Antics Miami, Florida

"... Their big, beautiful and loud indie rock is heavily informed by post-rock, making them feel like a really good instrumental band with occasional vocals. Between astral lullabies, surging storms of beauty and even some impressive technicality (dueling guitar finger-tapping!), Antics is the one legit newcomer I encountered... "

Track Name: Long Way Down
Heard the call and off they go to
The soundtrack on the radio
They change faces to replace this
False sense of community I
Traded in my spinal cord
For endless hours in showers of praises
Of all the eyebrows I've been raising
None of them
Quite compare to yours

And when I take a single look
I see
What a trap it is you've laid
In front
Of me

But
I'm alright
Yeah
I'm okay
It's a
Game of pride
That I
Had to play
It's the
Ladder up
Or the
Long way down
It was
Vain for sure
But it's
Real for now

Took a fall and now I'm sure I
Fucked it all in style of course I
Forge my love through perjury but
To you it's all a baseless feat I
Fear oh dear the end is near but
It's been this way throughout the years
I pray you me
I hope you see
The truth in you
Are lies in me

Think it's time I lost my mind and
See what it's like
To lose control

But
I'm alright
Yeah
I'm okay
It's a
Point for pride
That I
Had to make
It's the
Ladder up
Or the
Long way down
Did I
Lose it all?
Will I
Make it out?

Did I lose it all?
Will I
Make it?
Track Name: Shapeshifter
A lifetime left to waste on
a false pretense
My mind's a cave
Won't you come in?
Your heart of gold
Against mine of paper weights
When love is such
A strange mistake to make

All hope
Is lost
To anyone
And everyone
All hope
Is lost
To anyone

It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around

A lifetime less to wait
For a second chance
The water's too cold
I can't go in
But sure as hell
I've sure got hell to pay
And with the devil behind
I'll make my own way

It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around
It's clear dear
I haven't been around

So speak in tongues
While I'm still around
Speak in tongues
While I'm still around
This time I've changed
So act surprised
It's clear, dear
I haven't been around
So speak in tongues
Before I hit the ground

All hope
Is lost
To anyone
And everyone
All hope
Is lost
To anyone
And everyone
To anyone
And everyone

I know
For anyone and everyone
I know
For anyone and everyone
I know
Track Name: Last Days
It's like
All the world's collapsing
Right before my feet
I leave that life behind me now
You know how I used to be
I picked my feet up off the ground
And walked them straight to you
I gather thoughts
I push the words
But I can't speak them too

You know
I cannot start the shit all on my
Own
Now
Don't
You?

No
This isn't how I solve my problems
No
This is how I usually start them
No
This isn't how I solve my problems
No
This is how

It's like
All the world's rebuilding
Right before my eyes
I never knew identies
Were something more than lies
So Wake up Wake up
From this fantasy
I'll hit you with everything I've got
You know just what I mean

But You know
I cannot start the shit all on my
Own
Now
Don't
You?
I tell you all my problems
As if you'll ever solve them
With a joke
A grin
Or A kiss?

No
This isn't how I solve my problems
No
This is how I usually start them
No
This isn't how I solve my problems
No
This is how I usually start them

No
This isn't how I'll start my problems now
No
You are how I want to solve them now
No
This isn't how I'll start my problems now
No
You are how I want to solve them now

Turn off
Your TV
And listen
To me
Turn off
Your TV
And listen
To me
Turn off
Your TV
And listen
To me
Turn off
Your TV
And listen
To me

I wanted you
To haunt me
Tonight
I wanted to
Tell you
Good night
One
Last
Time
Track Name: Nothing Lasts Forever (I Hope This Lasts Forever)
A memory
Reminding me
Remember me
Remember me

A memory
Dismembers me
You won't find peace
Till you remember me
Remember me
Track Name: Me, As You, As Me
Maybe if I
Did your way
Maybe if I
Wasn't wrong
I wouldn't be lost
I wouldn't be traveling in circles
I wouldn't be caught
Searching numbers in the phonebook

Maybe if I
Wasn't senseless
I wouldn't be running around with my head cut off
I wanna keep
My dignity
But I can't see
The light at the end of the tunnel I
Roam

Don't wanna find peace
At the bottom of a bottle
Don't wanna find peace
At the bottom of my grave
Don't wanna find peace
At the bottom of a bottle
I wanna find peace
At the end of the day

I don't think I can keep going
With this charade I think I'll call it off

As soon as I can
As soon as I
Find that piece of land
That I've been looking
Forward to
Meeting you
I'm sure you're nice
You're nothing like she
Was

Don't wanna find peace
At the bottom of a bottle
Don't wanna find peace
At the bottom of a hole
Don't wanna find peace
At the bottom of a bottle
I wanna find peace
Even if it eats me
Whole

Maybe if I
Saw it your way
I wouldn't be
So blind
And maybe if I
Had followed your lead
I wouldn't be so
Lost
Track Name: Nonage
The smell of mud
On my light-up shoes
The sun is rising
The dawn is barely
Breaking through
I grab your hand
And take a step
The rest is all
A blurry mess that
I
Can't
Remember
The last time that I woke up

With passing cars
And highway signs
The streets are bright
The rain is heavy
I think now of
Better times
A former glory
Dead and buried

Lost
In this storm
It's all I've ever known
It's
All I've ever known
This
Place is cold
It's all I've ever known
It's
All I've ever
Known

They play the game
I move the pieces
I'm no fool
Tell your friends I'm in control
I miss you like there's no tomorrow
I miss
The person I
Used to
Be

Lost
In this storm
It's all I've ever known
It's
All I've ever known
Where
Did you go?
It's like I've never known
But now I'm coming
Home

Where the hell
Did you go off
To now?
Where the hell
Where the hell
Did
You
Go?
