Caleb Cox The Sad Gods of Arkansas certainly live up to their name on their debut. This record makes me want to cry into a bowl of chicken noodle soup! All jokes aside these guys are gnar. Favorite track: Bent To Break.

Track Name: Bent To Break
you thought you knew what I wanted
you thought you knew how far I could bend
before I break, you knew you could change
but you can’t change the way our world ends

and it’s so hard to relate
to anything you say
I just don’t know what it’s like
never had the chance to watch my mother cry

we can drive through this town all night
I know every turn
with the radio on
we know every word

you said you liked the beach
you said you’d like to leave
“something broke your plans that you never made with me”

we can drive through this town all night
I know every turn
with the radio on
we know every word

well if you wanna leave just let me know
I’d drive us both off this bridge
before you leave me here alone
Track Name: Kid
a year ago
you couldn’t stand to be alone
and now that’s all you want

and now you think
you’re too cool for me
but did you forget

that if it weren’t for me
you’d still be
the sad and lonely kid
i fell in love with

you’ve got time for your friends
and you’ve got time for your TV
but oh my god
you never have any time for me

what am i still doing here?
waiting on your approval
all your words
sound so rehearsed

but i’m still the same kid
you fell in love with

you’ve got time for your friends
and you’ve got time for your TV
but oh my god
you never have any time for me
Track Name: Gould
falling
you can see that I’ve fallen through
running
I cannot be caught by you

and I don’t know where to go
when my true colors show
and I don’t know who to be
when judgement is cursed to me

no one’s home and I cannot see
the light burned out, no more life in me
advice doesn’t help at all

they see me helpless

and I don’t know where to go
when my true colors show
and I don’t know who to be
when judgement is cursed to me

they see me helpless
Track Name: Summer 2k13
you don’t know where to go
when you’re done with school
you are so young
you’re only 18 years old
months ago you were controlled
no matter where you went
school or home

you have to find yourself
make your own decisions
do whatever helps
live for a reason

if I could be
what I wanted
I wouldn’t be
what I want

you have to find yourself
make your own decisions
do whatever helps
live for a reason
Track Name: Anywhere But Here
I should’ve told you I felt like something was wrong
I could’ve saved you from so much trouble
and there would be no problems to solve

I guess I should’ve paid more attention
I should’ve been focusing on someone besides myself

all along,
we’re all just missing something
and as time goes on,
I’m still missing someone

come a little closer
just promise not to disappear
everywhere you go is too far from here

you can say it’s not your fault
you can blame it all on someone else
whatever you think helps

all along,
we’re all just missing something
and as time goes on,
I’m still missing someone

I’d rather be anywhere but here
I’m always missing out
you’re always with someone else
Track Name: Long Way Home
there’s still time
for you to get inside my head
before i close it for good

it’s all my fault
i should have never let my hands get soft

some nights i want to take the long way home
to cover more ground, digging up your bones

I can still feel it
with the windows rolled down
and I can still hear you
with the radio loud

some nights i want to take the long way home
to cover more ground, digging up your bones
Track Name: Less Than Perfect
I watched you walk in
with a group of your friends
you headed straight for the wall
and all night you didn’t talk

has something got you down?
does he not want you around?
don’t let him make you feel
any less than perfect

are you looking for that smile
to remind you what you’re here for?
you’ll wait around for a while
waiting for change
waiting for nothing

break every promise you made
lay in the bed you made

you’ve seen every sign
what more could you want
if you’re not worth the fight
you’re just waiting for change
you’re waiting for nothing

break every promise you made
lay in the bed you made
Track Name: Your Past Is A Crutch
maybe you’re right
and it’s not you that’s changed, it’s me
maybe I’m the man
I said I never wanted to be

I just want to see what you see

I just couldn’t live with your blood on my hands
I wouldn’t wait for you to plan your own death

how could you live the life that cursed you?
you could use your past as a crutch forever if you let yourself

I just want to see what you see
I just couldn’t live with your blood on my hands

how could you live the life that cursed you?
you could use your past as a crutch forever if you let yourself
