I don’t care if I go to jail it’s all fucked up so I might as well I don’t care about the truth it’s all I do is take bad news I believe that life is dumb they’ll hand it out to anyone Waste it on the wastes of space got good health throw it all away I don’t know what I’m sayin Everything is wonderful and I’ve been happy Feeling great and lucky Feeling like a million bucks subtracted from a billion Catch me still complaining Everything is wonderful and I’ve been happy Jealous feeling stupid Feeling like a million bucks subtracted from a billion I don’t care if I go to jail it’s all fucked up so I might as well I don’t care about the truth it’s all I do is take bad news I believe that life is dumb they’ll hand it out to anyone Waste it on the wastes of space got good health throw it all away Walk over to my house x3 I just stopped by I’ll be leaving Can I get you a drink? Just some water I’m so damn thirsty Just some water I’m so damn thirsty Just some water I’m so damn thirsty

One of Us 04:00
Well it’ll make you happy and it’ll make you sad And it’ll make you wish things that you never had It’ll make you tired and it might make you grey And it’ll be the ending, the ending of this day Well it’ll make you hopeless it’ll make you vain And it’ll get you hoping for the way it was someday Well all the things you said to yourself when the time was weak It’ll be the very thing you need of which you cannot speak Well people on a plane go round and round Me I’m too scared to even leave the ground And people on a hill go tumbling down But I’m too low to see the way around See see it’s a great big forest If you’re gonna be somebody call us I can’t believe that you could get lost Not with all your knowledge and the way you come across Oh can’t you see it’s a great big world Happy for the people and their little girl I can’t believe that you could get lost I always thought you were one of us Well take the easy way out You take the easy way out Well take the easy way out You always take the easy way out Well people on a plane go round and round Me I’m too scared to even leave the ground I can’t believe that you could get lost I always thought you were one of us

West side white trash Smoking weed on a bicycle path I hope you get what you need I hope your life can find some peace Well seventeen, fourteen Young and love and dangerously I hope you give everything you got I hope you remember everything I forgot Slow down or speed up Self-medicate just to feel enough Go outside on a nice day Stare at something and feel your face It’ll take all your money it’ll take your time There but for dumb luck go I You’ll never go nowhere and your life’s a joke You’ll end up dead too young or broke Hate the world cause it’s in your face Never occurred you could leave this place Tied to yourself with invisible rope You sound stupid what you mean by hope Oh white boy, humid nights I too dreamed of another life Left this town so I changed course And when I came back too different of course Well let’s say, thirteen We didn’t pack up we didn’t leave Always kind of figured eventually Can’t see any difference between you and me Hate the world cause it’s in your face Never occurred you could leave this place Tied to yourself with invisible rope You sound stupid what you mean by hope Christmas comes in February Got mom’s taxes pocket’s heavy Went and got a brand new TV We forgot the fridge was empty

Cut and Dry 03:04
Well I don't care where you've been That's a lie but I still wonder when Back when I was clever When those lungs hung high and weathered Wasn't how you planned it Everybody dies you're goddam right Well I’ve been known to be cut and dry Life’s not grey it’s black and white So tell me all about your favorite life Where the foothills bleed and the mountains sigh Now tell me all about the one that died Where the clouds are grey and you ran all night And pick it up to see if it still feels right It’s an empty light but it burns all night We'll I don't know bout my life I wasn't eager to find out There's no easy answers But you'll surely have your doubts Talk to me Tell me who I am carefully now begin again Forget the past Tell me who I’ll be quietly what became of me Well I’ve been known to be someone’s life You said it right, it’s a goddamn lie They’ll hang you out to dry on any line When the wind comes by and the sun feels fine But you believe the lie you spread around Gave it back to us like its lost and found And pick it up to see if it still feels right It’s an empty light but it burns all night

Westward 06:01
Have you ever been to South Dakota? Did you go there at the close of summer? Did you take a trip with your older sister? Did the badlands close in and whisper? Did you see the bison on the range? Was it waving wheat and golden grain? Did you feel the pull of empty spaces? And come back east with hope and balance? Have you ever been to Idaho? You take the mountain pass in the snow? Did you give birth to your only daughter? Does you lumberyard still churn and whisper? Have you ever been to Yellowstone? Complete with your two sons in tow? Did you see the man in all his glory? Preparing for his life alone? I don’t believe that I will live to see the day When the sunlight in the morning is splashed across your face You don’t need me to say what you know is true If depression is the answer is the question killing you? Four wheels on the road, two feet on the highway Working all these years saying when’s it coming my way Remember when I said hey you gotta make your own way? Living other people lives that ain’t no way to live You can walk all day and night Believe me it’s alright if that’s how you wage the fight But don’t tell don’t tell me don’t tell me how old you feel Cause it sounds like giving up and that weren’t part of the deal

Relativity 05:02
Turned off the TV to drive to the ocean That’s 2000 miles of pure devotion Well, I climbed up the mountain you swam in its water You said isn’t it strange I thought this place would be hotter Cause I know yourself, I know yourself Better than anyone else better than anyone else You know myself, you know myself Better than anyone else better than anyone else Fourth of July hidden coast in our long sleeves We shivered and drove up north to hug on some tall trees Well I kicked off my soles again I put them up for Seattle And finished it barefoot the miles ticked off, unraveled I know you well, I know you well Better than anyone else better than anyone else You know me well, you know me well Better than anyone will better than anyone will Thinkin bout one day I’ll be too old Hoping there’s a secret in the road With relative time we’ll rage against the light, we know The faster we go the slower we get old

Ohio 04:47
Being born in Ohio tells you how a life will go Humid city streets at dusk friends and cars all full of rust And your mother’s full of doubt cause your dad keeps runnin out Always lookin to move west where the sun don’t ever set There’s a city on the shore thirty miles to the north Country exurbs all abound your best friend’s fathers dying out Go to school or blow it up ultimatums made you tough Dreaming of old city streets the family frame keeps growing weak Ohio x4 We used to work for the college on the weekend Let us keep our long hair like a vagrant Eventually our sister went and got married Drink it up cause there’s gonna be some babies We used to work for the college on the weekend Come home just to sit and stare at nothing Stood up to leave, “I don’t wanna be a bother” Looked at me, “Do you remember our father? And how we used to think that we were gonna save him? Or was it ever the other way around? Sometimes I don’t like myself for nothin’ So I drive around and around. Took a rabbit in a cage with a shotgun Couldn’t stand its eyes lookin’ out Every night it’s just me and television So I gotta find a better way out… Ain’t no city close to me country boys in boot cut tees Fifty years stuck in the past shotgun racks and cowboy hats Said you were a transient, that don’t make any fucking sense Seven years stuck on the farm I still got these old skinny arms

I might just die outside to see the way the trees gonna look at me Oh that’s alright You said, decide, gonna take everything you need I’m gonna bury it alive Oh that’s not nice I might set fire to the house and all the goddamn mess I have acquired And that’s alright So try to find some part of the world that agrees in itself; no meaning Oh alright I will chase the northern lights And be very tired from the drive Wherever there are footprints on the glass Well I will not wait for life to pass I know you you’ll move to California And you know me I’ll visit in the summer And all good things will end before you want em But I try not to think about that So have some babies Give em a name take em outside and keep em dirty And I will accept the things I don’t want to change But I will not think about that I will chase the northern lights And be very tired from the drive Wherever there are footprints on the glass Well I will not wait for life to pass

Out of the womb so slippery and smooth There’s things in the bedroom that you couldn’t choose Your head was a vortex of sound from the left But the music was nothing so have some regrets And you ran into loneliness blood from your lips Moving mountains of pavement face first with a kiss Move to the mountains or into the sea There’s a body within you that’s dying to breathe Made peace with the narcissist’s vision of love It’s burned on your tongue it’s all of the above So rip out your lungs and build up the flesh From the bruises and blood that you got when you left And your brother some giant with holes in his heart Skin too thin to be eager, too bruised from the start But you were natured or nurtured to one of a kind They taught us to hate so we hated just fine And we’re all gonna die So it’s all gonna be alright Being born slowly with looks from the docs Mother was yelling, “He’s twice what you’ve got” Growing up awkward with no music on The lunchroom was empty and full of no one You ran into loneliness chasing a lie Bleeding from the mouth but you never cried They took you away and you still believed that Change is always better and change you always need How’s a life lesson taste on the tongue Is it sweet after sour and salty from the run? Bruises are empty, blood is still free Don’t tell them anything that you wanna keep You walked in the front door hoping to be A new place new person new people to meet Nature or nurture just one and a kind They taught you to hate so you hated just fine And we’re all gonna die So it’s all gonna be alright

about

The first full-length from Columbus, Ohio's Sunrise Reset, this is an album inspired by and indebted to the now meaningless term "indie rock," a stripped down, simple affair for the band. Recorded at home, with live vocals patched into a microphone line snaking from an upstairs bedroom through a laundry shoot and into a basement so as not to bleed into the live drums, it's an album about leaving and staying, in all their various forms.
