about

This record means a lot to us. It’s a transition from what we were into what we’ve become, forging forward in the direction that we were clearly headed. We’ve grown from Sad and French into MakeWar. Some of the old songs are there, but with a new feeling and energy. We still have the same heart, and the same passion, we’ve just added so much more – a new member, a new sound, and importantly, a new name. This record not only compliments the Sad and French acoustic record – it takes an idea and expands on it. Plugging in the instruments made sense, and once we did, it became loud clear to all of us that this was a new direction that suited us all as a band and not just one lost love. MakeWar might’ve been Sad once. But we were never French.

Track Name: Bloody Faces
I keep seeing bloody faces. Traveling across the country. Walking sideways, blurry vision. Drinking til the morning comes…. Falling down into a worm hole with no signs and no directions. I keep fighting alligators, keeping them away from you. So hold my hand and can we kiss now, lets forget about tomorrow your car will turn into a pumpkin and I’ll turn into a frog. Life is filled with disappointments, what doesn't kills you makes you stronger. I’ve been acting like a vampire so i might be already dead.
Track Name: Just Listen to the Songs
Would you take some time to listen to the songs
that I wrote for you about our happy days
listen to the songs, when you get some time.

I know you're pretty busy Flying everywhere
I know you're overwhelm by your new boyfriend
listen to the songs, when you get some time.

This songs will always make me remember
the pretty girl that loved me so tender
This song is just trying to let you know
about the time I promised you I would never
ever let you go.

I wrote some other songs to try to convinced my self
that I was over you. Yeah it was pretty lame.
And let me tell you, it didn't work out.

I tried to fool around and slept with other girls
some were pretty cool, and some were pretty lame
And let me tell you
You know you own my heart
and I'm still waiting
For you to give it back
but if you want... to keep it for a while...

Just listen to the songs.
Track Name: Against the Rules
remember when you wrote me back
and told me it wasnt working out
with your new guy!
with your new guy!

and told me you were missing me
and wish that you were still be here
right by my side!
right by my side!

but now...
you disappeared without a trace
and made me really go insane
this time you really let me down
down…

so everything is changing now
quicker than my blinking eyes
it was no surprise
was no surprise!

I'll probably just move to france
since moving its what we do now
and get over this!
get over you!

I'll do anything
and try to dissapear
and hope that when you're kissing him
it will remind you how good we used to kiss before.

do you remember the first time
we kissed and then we said goodbye
against the rules!
against the rules!

promise me you wont forget
those times when we were more than friends
laying on the sand!
watching the stars!

so now...
there's no more wait
there's just forget
tomorrow its a brand new day
I hope you're really happy with now
and when the wedding comes around
I'll be in france!
I'll be in france!

so when the priest says
is anyone going to try stop this shit?
and you'll be waiting for me
to scream your name...
please dont flatter yourself
sweet love of mine
cuz I've been gone.
Track Name: Shorter Days and Longer Nights
Hello Sadness
where'd you go?
I haven't seen you for a while...
it was quite a happy ride.

nothing's changed much
I must say...
you can see it from this empty glass
cheers to you cuz now she's gone

some things never change
some things are always the same

shorter days and longer nights
someone grabs me by the hand
she says, here's to you cuz now she's gone.

Estrangers houses
are becoming familiar
but I cant never remember their names
longer nights and shorter days

This is nothing anything serious
It's just all about the sex
no I don't want your phone number
I don't even remember your name
Im sorry Im being this cold to you
the thing is someone stole my heart
and to be honest with you
I don't want her to give it back.

some things never change
some things are always the same

Hello Sadness
where'd you go?
I haven't seen you for a while...
it was quite a happy ride.
Track Name: When the Poison Flows
I've been away
but yet so close to you and me
when I fall asleep

It's like a little you
comes up inside my brain and
starts playing with my dreams

but then I wake
to realize that you weren't there
so I go with my day

next morning wake up with your replacement
and a bottle in my hand

Cuz when you leave I fall
and then the poison flows
into dark stages of conceiving of denial
I wish that you would stick around

You come and go like it's your job to leave me hanging
one foot in and one foot out

Why can't you just decide if you wanna be with me or
just wanna be set free

Cuz these days my stomach has no butterflies but worms
and they are eating me alive

but good ol' jameson is good to ease the pain of
when you say goodbye

Cuz when you leave I fall
and then the poison flows
into dark stages of conceiving of denial

I wish that you would stick around
I wish that you would stick around
I wish that you would stick around

Cuz when you leave I fall
and then the poison flows
into dark stages of conceiving of denial
I wish that you would stick around
Track Name: Second Floor
I'm looking for something, anything
just a little fucking thing
that will make me forget you

Something like that time when you lied
You told me you would never ever leave

So show me more lies, and don't ever smile
I'm looking for something so I can forget
you and your eyes, your beautiful smile
Just leave me alone

Looking back I know we had some fun
I wish it was something more than fun
We could write a movie to hollywood
About a girl and guy who didn't speak
english too well but knew how to succeed
Cuz I fucking did!

Remember the time when you were asleep
on the passenger seat and you didnt know
kidnap to the keys. Tell me that wasn't awesome
Just try to find another guy that comes out with shit like that

How about the time when the hurricane came
and you didn't want everybody to know we were making out
So I jumped from your window
second floor
I busted my ass
Please leave me alone.

Yes I guess I'm trying to get over you
but it has been way harder than I thought
Even tho I know you fooled around
with some losers with tattoos an bald heads

So this is the story of me being stupid
You're living your life and I'm writing you songs
I dont know what to do... Why I'm waiting for you?
Track Name: Another Way to Let You Go
So this is life and its without you
I've been banging my head to the wall
and I won't stop until its bleeding
to sail away on my own blood

and she says
go, go, go...
she says she has to let me go

and I said,
fuck, fuck, fuck...
half in the bottle and now its done

I guess she lied about the future
and I was dumb enough to care
I guess she used me as her back up
while I was waiting on a bench

and I say
please, please, please...
just think about this one more time

and she said,
no, no, no...
without really saying why

Just wish the best
and walk away
someone said

Just let her fly
fly away
and go to bed

she might come back
or she might not
no one knows

so quit your whining
and get some drinks
lets get fucked up.

So this is life and its without you
I've been banging my head to the wall
and I won't stop until its bleeding
Just another way to let you go
Track Name: Sweet Little Nightmares
so you fucked with my heart
and that was just the start
of miserable years
getting drunk at the bar

and its funny how things turned out
it almost took me by surprise
but I remember your old lovers
and maybe call me crazy
but I think this was just part of your plan

and I hope
that you get what you fucking deserve
and I'll forget
all those years that you kept me just there

and it feels kind of sad
no more cheers or goodbyes
but I've got nothing to lose now
it was all just a trap and
I feel like Im winning tonight

Please forgive all this aggression
but it just took me by surprise
how last year you weren't married
and we were supposed to visit Paris
and today is just all in the past

and I know
the biggest problem was that I believed
Everything
in my head was according to plan

So this is my heart
in form of a song
so tell me how mad are
is this making you crazy
now you know
how Im feeling tonight

Can't go back to sleep
cuz I know I'll be dreaming of you
sweet little nightmares
that turn into love songs
again and again.
Track Name: Cheers to You
Im walking away
From my fears and my friends
they've been trying to make you
get out of my head
I don't want you to go
I just want you to stay there
So I'll just pretend
that everything is ok

I don't know...
I wish you could tell me
Everything will be alright
Cuz I loved you in the morning
and I don't know
when you'll be back.

Once upon a time
on a land far away
there were forces of evil
messing up with our heads
we were deeply in love
everything was great
but we were young
and then you just ran away

Cheers to you
You and me darling.
Cheers to us
and all of our friends
Cheers to them
for messing with your head.
Cheers to him
Your so called best friend

So Im walking away
from my fears and your friends
I took all of our happy thoughts
and photos with me
put them all in a box
and now its hidden somewhere
So Im hiding myself
until you come back some day

I don't know...
I wish you could tell me
Everything will be alright
Cuz I loved you in the morning
and I don't know
if you'd ever be back...
I don't know
