about

Breakers Charlottesville, Virginia

Breakers are a rigorously-calculated, riff-driven, proto-punk alt-rock group out of Charlottesville, VA that deliver an acerbic, infectious sound reminiscent of The Strokes and Queens of the Stone Age.
It’s a realized compositional style spray-painted with simple, straight forward New York rock n’ roll. "Debussy meets alt rock" – Anonymous fan

Track Name: Wild Violet
I don't wanna wait
For your love
I don't wanna wait
For your love
You make number five, let's you and me make number six
I've got a problem and you've got a fix

I've been so amused by the way you cast your glance around the room
And meet my eyes from time to time

We've been alone in this world
No exits, windowless, no doors
Just take me, escape with me by your side

I am the one you need
I am the one to please you
Do my I's deceive you?

We can't dance all alone
You won't find out on your own
Until you find the time to
Shake these hands of mine

I don't wanna wait
For your love
I don't wanna wait
For your love
You make number five, let's you and me make number six
I've got a problem and you've got a fix
I had just wanted to be by your side

Don't
Don't forget
What goes on inside your head
Write it out, or regret the things you might have said
Take a bow
Let the curtain drop into the end
Over now, backstage in a world of pretend

So low
Only friend
I know
We could go
On and on forever
In a moment spent together
Through love we go out
Track Name: Morning Tries
Morning tries
To pull you from the ditch you dug at night
Velvet ties
Drape over the escape artist just right
Speaking in sighs
The ears don't play customer to my tongue
Red evening rises
A candle lit
Head from the horizon

I am the one to punch my knuckles broken on concrete
Smile at the sun too long before the shine stains my teeth
Eyes of a visionary, the dog takes its own leash to lead me down the well
I'm undecided, or maybe just too tired to tell

Move through night
Electric shadows keep good company
No left or right
Directionless
I'll keep wandering

I am the one to punch my knuckles broken on concrete
Smile at the sun too long before the shine stains my teeth
Eyes of a visionary, the dog takes its own leash to lead me down the well
I'm undecided, or maybe just too tired to tell

Seems impossible to see it through
What's a choice when you can't seem to choose
So I don't
Whenever I can
And I won't
No matter the plan

Mind makes up itself before you do
What's the point when it's not up to you
So I don't
Whenever I can
And I won't
No matter the plan
But I don't have a plan

I am the one to punch my knuckles broken on concrete
Smile at the sun too long before the shine stains my teeth
Eyes of a visionary, the dog takes its own leash to lead me down the well
I'm undecided, or maybe just too tired to tell
Track Name: Hourglass
Oh, the brewing starts and it wakes you
Lungs heave faulty air as it makes you break
The truth is shaking, too
One drop away from sticking the landing on the ocean floor below
Hope you can learn to swim with a smile

That's what it's like when you leave and you don't come home
You just say what you want, just to please
Please leave me alone
I don't know why, but I do
And it makes me sick

Just like love it lasts when it's over
Hourglass is empty, no more time to bury an excuse
I was so hysterical, my eyes were glued to the back of my own skull
Once in a while I'll see you again

That's what it's like when you leave and you don't come home
You just say what you want, just to please
Please leave me alone
I don't know why, but I do
And it makes me

That's what it's like when you leave and you don't come home
You just say what you want, just to please
Please leave me alone
I don't know why, but I do
And it makes me sick
Track Name: Merits of Apathy
We close our ears to speak
We shut our eyes to seek
Senseless senses say no more than we can feel
The merits of apathy

These trains of thought need conducting
Outside interruption
Synapses snap before the
Truth is received

Detach and relax until you're sore
Never mind, the mold's been cast, just pour yourself out
It's never quite the way we want to leave it out
And that's okay
Out of control, at least you said the words you thought you had to say

Triangle shapes to tune
While we all decide on sides
A hammock swings between two trees

Detach and relax until you're sore
Never mind, the mold's been cast, just pour yourself out
It's never quite the way we want to leave it out
And that's okay
Out of control, at least you said the words you thought you had to say

Good boy
You can shit standing up
Piss freely in public
Lick yourself clean

Good boy
You see in black and white
But ya hear in color
You sleep soundly at night
You listen to yourself
Track Name: D.I.Y. Trying
I don't want you to see me this way.
I don't want to see me behave.

I miss the sound, a thousand voices on the hook
Catches like you waiting in line
You'd sing the song until your voice was fuckin' gone
But those, for some, were better times

Some on the left are finding legal ways to steal
Some on the right reinventing the wagon wheel
I miss the only thing about you when you're gone
Oh just to watch you walk away

D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. die trying
D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. die trying
We found the lost and gave em microphones to yell
Until their voices echoed “change” down in the well

They set their sights on silencing the other side
We fanned the fire and we're gonna let it ride
If everybody shared a glimpse of what we know
Oh where, oh where could we all go

D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. die trying
D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. die trying
D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. die trying
D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. die trying
We found the lost and gave em microphones to yell
Until their voices echoed “change” down in the well
Track Name: Counterpoint
I can't find the melody for my wind chimes, but I can hear
That silent symphony your breeze blows to my ear

We don't need music to dance to
Following moonlight leads to sun
If by chance romance does find you
Count to three, jump on one

You keep to yourself, but together, we'll share a page
Poems before us color perfect scenes from today

Ideally a time in life we'll a chance
To share a melody in harmony at last


We don't need music to dance to
Following moonlight leads to sun
If by chance romance does find you
Count to three, jump on one

I don't know much, but it's the truth
See through your eyes, hear your ears, I think your nose is pretty cute
What's one is one between us two
Before, until the end I'm pleased to be in life with you

That slice of our lives
What's a la mode?

Memories made to last
Left in our minds to grow

We don't need music to dance to
Following moonlight leads to sun
If by chance romance does find you
Count to three, jump on one

I don't know much, but it's the truth
See through your eyes, hear your ears, I think your nose is pretty cute
What's one is one between us two
Before, until the end I'm pleased to be in life with you
Track Name: Found
We all search for something or somebody to help us to find our way home
Pay nobody no mind to decide, with just five, we'll be fine on our own

I was so hysterical my eyes found yours when I could not see myself
Once in a while we'll swim the current, on a swell

Where did all my plans go?
Pulled in by the undertow

Go through the fire for the flame
Another man without a name
Another show, another game

The guilt on my shoulder
The sound of my passion
Less love, less soul
There's no need to react
I just want my

Somebody knows another note to fix my melody
Bending sides to recognize and write my remedy
All for one to get mine
One for all
We must realize

I know what you're thinkin about somethin you've been dreaming
and how
Foolish you are feeling when ya wake up without
Realizing
Truth won't find you out until you give into the
In, out and around

Through love we go out for this is not the last song it's where new ends begin
Of a body and mind to pretend, all alone, time is my only friend

I was so hysterical my ears heard your symphony and gave into chance
Once in a while, you'll find the music meets the dance
