about

Some folks will see these South Americans playing punk rock and they'll say, "Build a wall!" We saw the trio and said, "Let's give 'em a record deal and get these badass hermanos on tour!" MakeWar is the first band we've ever worked with from NYC and their sound blends Gainesville/Chicago drinking anthems with Long Island emo-punk like Taking Back Sunday and Brand New. Yeah, it's weird, but let's see what your punk band sounds like after you've had to flee Venezuela, eh amigo?! MakeWar is planning to hit the road hard and already have a tour of the U.S., a tour of Europe, and festival appearances booked in support "Developing A Theory Of Integrity". No walls can hold this band back!

Track Name: Matador Pool Party
Matador pool party

Summer is showing her feet
at my doorstep but not coming in.
Creeping with sunny flares out my window
while pissing all over the streets.

And later tonight she decides to come back
and whisper all over my ears
warm happy thoughts that made me believe
tomorrow we’ll roast like the pigs

cuz we’re having a party… wowwww

falling in puddles of happiness
clearing out all the bad times
that invaded our freewill

I clearly believed I could drink the whole town
and it’s showing all over my bed
Remember that time when we lived in the south
and the bed sheets were wet by mistake

But now we’re adults and we still act like kids
Correcting behaviors of the prey
Its all fun and games until some one gets hurt
or edwin is sleeping in jail.

Cuz we like to party… wowww

losing my wisdom
no time to recover it
reach out for change
to scratch off my last words.

lost, and clearly reckless I was
pretending to meet someone,
Someone I could trust and
Someone I could hold.
going thru the motions
reeking, uncommitted.
Loosing at the feelings.
untracking time.

and oh my god has it been this long?
we lost our maps so long ago.
Track Name: Ode
Ode

I can’t fall asleep
So many demons inside of me
I hope they die
with this shot of whiskey

And I’m going out tonight
Fuck not drinking for a month
A week’s enough
And I’m a fucking champion

And I’m drinking for myself
and for who those who want but can’t
and to get strength
To talk to the pretty bartender

And I wanna keep living fast
Oh I wanna die fucking old
And I think I want a dog
I think I’ll name him lucky

Now’s five AM
Cheap beers and good friends
Sun is out and it’s cold as fuck
Oh you gotta love new york for all
that’s given us
Oh new york what have you give us?

The highest rents and smelly trains
The best fucking bars and all my friends
Some booty calls at 5am
And lets not forget how I forget

Loosing track of all my gear
where the fuck did I put my beer?
The Koozie’s lost and so is my fear
of panicking with out my pills.

Pills to help me sleep
So many demons inside of me
I hope they die
and let me have a normal…

…Five AM
Cheap beers and good friends
Sun is out and is hot as fuck
Oh you gotta love new york for all
New York!
Track Name: DTFH
Do you feel like shit
when you wake up?
Maybe you drank too much?
or maybe didn’t drink enough?

uh ohh oh

(Verse)
Sleep’s getting shifted
from darker times
to the waking hours
of those who try
a normal life

uh ohh oh

As I begin to understand
we’re not as young as we once were

The clock is ticking faster now
And beers keep trying to help out
Just like when we were younger
But the sound is very different now
My heart keeps fighting to get out
and the pressure’s getting stronger

Now sick and tired
with a lack of sleep.
Death keeps on showing me
a sweet false hope
I can’t resist

as I begin disappear
my friends promise to make it weird

Denver weed’s stronger than new york
two hits and face down to the floor
puking and feeling weary
tattoos of friendship the next day
adderall mushrooms and cocaine
I hope it doesn’t kill me
Track Name: Don't Panic
Don’t Panic

Breaking all the rules to see you disappear
Burning pictures with the help of little pills
Fighting memories that make me wanna puke.
Trying to relax by drinking all the booze.

But sometimes I see you there…
In the deep trails of my brain

Killer spiders roamed around the room last nite.
They took me hostage and put poison in my mind
it’s a funny feeling when you think you’re gonna die
in the back of a cab.

And sometimes I spent my nights
waiting for the siren sounds.

You brought me up, then tore me down
Till I got over it and made it sound.
It took some time, to realize
This game was over even before it started.

I’m sorry but I have to fix you.
the voice in my head repeats itself again
Don’t worry we’re gonna fix this.
I guess Im talking to myself again.

And sometimes I can’t explain
what is going thru my head.

I brought you up, then took you down.
Till you got over it and made it sound.
It took some time, to realize
I have to take care of this little heart of mine.

Reaching out today
(For some help, please someone)
Help me understand
(why sometimes I can’t breathe)
ANXIETY
(Don’t panic, Don’t panic)
So take these little pills
They will numb your brain…
Track Name: Tiger Lili
Tiger Lili

When Im with you
feels like fire flies
are lighting up the
scary dark sky
that followed me thru
The sickest fucking part
of my whole life

A couple years back
I couldn’t see straight
the “whats” and “whens” were
Erasing the life as I knew
was being replaced by
abnormal agony.

But it’s all good now
Cuz I found you
hiding in a place
where we both felt we were safe
drinking the problems away

Understanding
was overwhelming
and you embraced it
with burgers
and ever since then
I knew that I was where
I always want to be

Happy and Sweet
is how you make me feel.
Ruling out the stress
of sad songs that I made
for the first time.

Lili,
I really
hope is cool I wrote
your name down in a song
Lili
Clearly,
I think it’s been a while
have I felt like this before?
Track Name: On Feelings
On feelings:

I once had an emotion,
straight punch to the chest
forcing it to fail.

It Regarded somebody,
with silly promises
bouncing in my head.

And I said
Enough is enough
while puking out the feelings.

Now weak and emotionless
dragged down by the bed
of someone else’s faith.

But drinking with my buddies
helped me understand
that it will be ok

and I say
Truth to be told
I don’t remember anything
anymore

Raging erased you.
Falling upwards seems
to be the cure of this.
Thinning down the blood
Having all the fun
it’s all that matters.

And Truth to be told
I don’t remember anything
anymore

Raging erased you.
Falling upwards seems
to be the cure of this.
Thinning down the blood
Having all the fun
it’s all that matters.

Laughing at the past
While holding someone else’s hand
I’m taking back what was
mine.

Raging erased you.
Falling upwards seems
to be the cure of this.
Thinning down the blood
Having all the fun
it’s all that matters.
Track Name: Insurance
Insurance

No, its ok…
I wouldn’t done it any other way
the way we fought and the way we loved
each other made us who we are right now

Yeah it made me strong
strong enough to move out of the south
North enough to see the seasons
changing colors with beautiful sounds

So I lost my battle
but I got the medal
of living fearless
without you

You’ve got a ring dear
that fits fucking perfect
I bet your insurance
got super cheap, super cheap

So Good luck to you and your new friend
And thanks for keeping me away
You know I needed this from you
I know you needed this from me

So let it go and say good bye
to those who once meant your whole life

it wouldn’t make a difference
Im just trying to let out
the things I couldn’t say
when we still talked
cuz I have nothing against you
or the decisions that you’ve made
Trust me when I say
I understand.

No, its ok…
I wouldn’t done it any other way
the way we fought and the way we lost
each other made us who we are right now
Track Name: Sallie
Sallie

Today I swear that Im ok
with life as is with no regrets
while Leaning towards our happiness
surrounding us and all our friends

Forgetting things that were once mine
Just let them go and watch me go
Across the sea, point a to b
fuck 9 to 5

So many places that I want to see
fuck 9 to 5
saving is for suckers. I’ll buy more guitars
get in the van!
where to now?
I guess we’ll see…
someone’s floor? or motel 6?

directing the art of communications
turned out to be disgraceful
unworthy tragedy
Now it’s been like 16 years
with the same delirious dream
of just playing guitar
and not caring about anything at all

So many places that I want to see
fuck 9 to 5
cuz life is too short and we’re all gonna die
get in the van!
where to now?
I guess we’ll see…
Edwin’s visa is in Paris…

illusions of safety
are erasing the paychecks
and sallie keeps calling
asking me for her money
and the landlord is pissed off
fuck
i should’ve sold that one guitar
And collectors are worried
Cuz my call’s keep on dropping

but there’s so many places where i want to be
just losing my mind
in front of my new friends
who sing really loud
let’s figure out
how to pay
most of the bills
while singing songs and drinking beer
Track Name: Distractions
Distract me forever.
Don’t let me drown in my fears
again with the love songs
Let’s map this endless sea…

…And burn all the evidence
that got us into this mess.
protect the brain cells
from future sneaky flares.

It’s time I got this far
indulging my devotions
reclaiming all that was lost
in the last war.

now this verse’s slowly sinking
into an opportunity
sweet hidden treasure
sweet signs of empathy

It’s time we got this far
indulging our devotions
reclaiming all that was lost
in the last wars.

trying to make sense of nothing
its harder than a brick
that won’t break with punches
from my old sweaty hands.
just try and try relax
don’t overthink the results

Distract me forever!
Don’t let me drawn in my fears
Let’s keep this moving.
learn from heavy winds.
Track Name: Dust
Dust

Questioning arguments of fairy tales
while trying to not sound insane.
Disregarding all the facts Ive had
before I get sucked by the earth

Cuz I don’t want to think that this is it
So we live and then we die?
where do we go after we close our eyes?
turning dust into stars

or do we all just die
is this all that we have?

Grandpa was gone after I said goodbye
Conscious mind over mass
He was a good man he was the best
fighting the impossible war

Cuz I still think that someone has a cure
hiding deep in their pockets
They rather get rich than see less people die
Conscious mass over mind.

are we all gonna die?
We are all…

Slowly sinking in quicksand made out of
radio frequencies, cigarettes.
life is short and you should keep
question it all

Do we float away? or just rot in hell?
maybe we’ll just get eaten by worms
do we rise again?
I will question it all.
