This song would be sick if there wasn't someone whining through most of it...

this has to be one of the best uses of a featured vocalist; loved the trade-offs between the two

Mehhhh, had potential but gosh those lyrics are terrible, the music is decent but not good enough to save the song.

Fun and full of energy, though its hard to stomach some of the lyrics. Overall 3.5/5 Makes me excited to see where they go with the rest of the record.

Digging: As We Draw - Mirages

Yeah I'm kinda disappointed in this. It isn't terrible, but it's not good either. And I can't stand Kellin so that didn't help at all either.

Hopefully the rest of the album is better than this.

I can handle only one whiney singer at a time, plus Kellin sucks so I won't listen.

I'm really liking this I didn't hear anything from their last album but I think I should give it listen now.

"I'm over sleeping like a dog on the floor"

I really like that lyric for some reason

yeah same thoughts on the lyrics. some lines that stand out as particularly
cliché/scene/sound like they were written by a 13-year-old include:

"red for the drink that's mixed with suicide"

"three cheers for throwing up, pubescent drama queen"

"and if the bass shakes the earth underground, we'll start a new revolution"

"come at me, now this is war"

"fuck with this new beat" *breakdown*

"dying is a gift, so close your eyes and rest in peace"

This song sounds like it was written by a different band than the one that wrote A Flair For the Dramatic.

Average, nothing more. I did enjoy Selfish Machines though so we'll see if they can top that effort this time. So far, it's not a good start.

Band's been talented since still being Before Today.


Vocals and lyrics are pretty 10th grade though. Oh well.

Yeah I've been following these guys since 07, and I always thought Vic's lyrics were consistently awesome... Until this song.

Regardless, I still have faith that the rest of the songs on the album could be great lyrically.

they have always been one of the more interesting scene-esk bands in terms of instrumentation.

this is a good song and i honestly have no problem with the lyrics. i just thought the breakdown and its transition were awkward. "fuck with this new beat" was stupid.

I actually like this song quite a bit. It is a lower part of the album though, the entire album however is very solid. I'm waiting for a review, however it's not officially released so...
