Veronica Garcia All of these songs are so damn catchy. Not only that, but they are so relatable and awesome. The lyrics are perfect. One of my all time favorite albums. Favorite track: Clement's Time.

C. Dingus Energetic sounding pop-indie-punk rock etc. Regardless of genre though, brilliant lines throughout, great lead guitar, such a nice rhythm and just the right amount of "teen angst" thrown in there, which people don't like to admit, but isn't just had by teens. Relate-able songs such as "Clement's Time" in this fashion were made to smash chart-hits and I wish Kate's Party all the best in the future. Favorite track: Clement's Time.

xrobxcorex Full band sound means they don't just sound like a (good) Heathers rip off anymore. One song on this EP is a bit annoying but the rest is really really great.

Track Name: Clement's Time
I’ll have a cup of tea and sit outside tonight

I’ll have a cigarette, figure nothing has turned out right.

Yes I cared for you, it’s something I dared to do

To be Honest I am nothing but scared for you

I’m not scared of ghosts I’m scared of maybe becoming one

And what scares me the most is I can see you becoming one

What can I do in a room full of you?

When I can’t seem to speak without ceasing to breathe

I know I’ve lied to myself

What can I do now I’m thinking of you?

I know I promised I wouldn’t, I probably shouldn’t

I’ve lied to myself.

Ignite your rumours I’m not angry enough just yet

In spite of you love, I’m drowning in waves of regret

Inventing memories, consuming energy,

Your paperback won’t write itself.

I said I couldn’t love you more if I had tried

You said you’d rather it much more if I had cried

I said I’m not staying up with you all night

You said you’d stay up ‘til the morning just to finish this fight.

What can I do in a room full of you?

When I can’t seem to speak without ceasing to breathe

I know I’ve lied to myself

What can I do now I’m thinking of you?

I know I promised I wouldn’t, I probably shouldn’t

I’ve lied to myself.

One good year doesn’t make a life
One real tear doesn’t make it right
I’m spening way too long on this empty song
Investing way too much, I know I’m in the wrong
One good year doesn’t make a life.
What can I do in a room full of you?

When I can’t seem to speak without ceasing to breathe

I know I’ve lied to myself

What can I do now I’m thinking of you?

I know I promised I wouldn’t, I probably shouldn’t

I’ve lied to myself.
Track Name: Explosions
Can’t you see this coming between you and me?
Can’t you see I’m getting better?
God knows I’ve tried.
I guess it’s easier to understand ‘you’re an open book’
You’d rather be judged by your cover than what’s inside
Holding back explosions realising I’m not free
Expressions stuck on frozen, I realise that I’m not me.
I don’t want your autograph, I wanna see you dance
Your mask is see-through, so take a fucking chance.
It’s getting harder to embrace these feelings I once chose to ignore
I made a deal with the devil so what else could I ask for?
Holding back explosions realising I’m not free
Expressions stuck on frozen, I realise that I’m not me.
We run around with vacant faces
We run around pretending that we’ve got places to go
We get on fine so long as no one asks why we’re drawing metaphors from life’s simplest tasks
Holding back explosions realising I’m not free
Hold me back I’m frozen, I realise that I’m not me.
Can’t you see this coming between you and me?
Holding back explosions realising I’m not free
Expressions stuck on frozen, I realise that I’m not me.
Holding back explosions realising I’m not free
Expressions stuck on frozen, I realise that I’m not me.
Track Name: Go Lucky
There are words scattered all over the ground
And I’m trying my best to find something more profound
Deeper meanings in these messes that I’ve made
Sure something would’ve happened had I stayed.
Now I’m finding it hard to sleep
Because I’ve found that I’m in too deep
Deep in the heart of a town unforgiving
When it comes to these memories of you and me living
Every street has its stories, my regret inventories
I found that I’m too deep to let this go.
It’s all very well to pretend to forget,
It’s all very well to forget to the end,
A coward you called me, a faint-hearted fib
It’s all very well - we’ve forgotten to live.
Well I’m sorry for giving.
Forgive me for living.
I’ve found that I’m too deep to let this go.
Track Name: Rachel McAdams
I’m always travelling but never get anywhere

I’m always in bed but I don’t sleep and I don’t care

I’m just too caught up with my thoughts

I’m one third of the people that’s just tryna save you

It’s unheard of that people might just really crave you

I’m just too caught up with what’s lost

Call me when you start to fall down too

I’m still wandering aimlessly waiting for you

Call me when I start to fucking matter

Maybe I’ll still be waiting for you

I had the best of intentions each fucking time

I had my sites on reflections in my mind’s eye

I’ve been weighing up exactly what’s at stake

I thought out with the old and ignore the cold

I thought in with the new, not forget about you

I’ve spent too many nights away

Call me when you start to fall down too

I’m still wandering aimlessly waiting for you

Call me when I start to fucking matter

Maybe I’ll still be waiting for you

I thought out with the old and ignore the cold

I thought in with the new, not forget about you

I was all too aware

It’s one thing break a promise

It’s another to fake what’s honest to yourself

I sense a ringing in my ear

Call me when you start to fall down too

I’m still wandering aimlessly waiting for you

Call me when I start to fucking matter

Maybe I’ll still be waiting for you.
Track Name: Heartbreak Song
Only twenty we’ve just begun

I think it’s safe to say there’s brighter days in sight

It gets better, we’re only young

And your advice is to embrace to the darkness of the night

There’s a certain truth in the orange air

The smell of cold smoke is just like home

A certain comfort knowing you’re there

Knowing one day soon we might not be alone

What have I done, I can’t be your friend

I won’t be your crutch, don’t let it end

Why does everyone watch me fall.

What have I done you don’t understand

I can’t take it back, why play pretend

Why does everyone watch me fall.

Just twenty-one with a full tank of gas

I swear we’re going somewhere, just maybe not fast

We gotta keep walking straight up this road

‘Til we find somewhere we can both call home

Not one for conflict, not one for a fight

This is just what they wanted to set us alight

We’ve gotten further than anyone else

Battled on shouting not tonight

What have I done, I can’t be your friend

I won’t be your crutch, don’t let it end

Why does everyone watch me fall.

What have I done you don’t understand

I can’t take it back, why play pretend

Why does everyone watch me fall.

I’ve fallen more than once before and prayed

I landed on my feet

Fallen thousands more and still I feel I need to retreat

You’re on fire and so am I

This is not somewhere I want to die

And I know you’re scared

Because you’re praying to a god that you know isn’t there.

What have I done, I can’t be your friend

I won’t be your crutch, don’t let it end

Why does everyone watch me fall.

What have I done you don’t understand

I can’t take it back, why play pretend

Why does everyone watch me fall.
