Was a well-dressed girl at center stage In dress The marquee lights had more than once seen her name Juliette Each night's receipt Flowers at her feet Different shades of red Crowd out its seat He drops to his knees "Please, please Juliette" and she says "With the curtain drawn I play the part we're supposed to know But I don't wanna be here right now" With the lights in his eyes Clenched in hand the ring that shines "Give me some idea" He reads the bound pages of the poetry lines She's at the mirror, script in hand, to recite To no one With the curtain drawn she plays the part we're supposed to know "But I don't wanna be here right now" With the lights in his eyes Clenched in hand the ring that shines "Give me some idea"

Well it's been some time Since we went our separate ways Won't see me smile Since we went our separate ways It don't mean much to me anymore I won't try To fool your love back home with me I won't lie Words they don't come easy to me anymore Since you left darling No name conversations carry on down to the floor That's not me Well he goes ego every night I can't dance like that Reciting lines like it's the first time That takes time And promises he won't wait to break with the digits on the barroom napkin Once a prince but he'll be backing out On the street Change at her feet She's cold Words they don't come easy to me anymore Since you left darling No name conversations carry on down to the floor That's not me That's for people on TV

At the top of the hour's when you call me your minute. man Realize, these times, can't be planned Flash in the dark, a certain smile The ringing's gonna stop in a while Knock on my door with my left and you're right In the middle of the day we get more life than the nighttime She knocks her makeup off the shelf Lipstick removal with the back of her hand Season's greet me Your eyes keep me From waking up to the sound of the call Give me one more chance when we wake up tomorrow Day two comes through and you light up the room And it ends when you steal, heel to hand From your next-door neighbor Knock on my door with my left and you're right In the middle of the day we get more life than the nighttime She knocks her makeup off the shelf Lipstick removal with the back of her hand Season's greet me Your eyes keep me From waking up to the sound of the call Give me one more chance when we wake up tomorrow

Was it the ocean? Or the explosion? First sounds of Earth That end's beginning Our symphony Universe I would go on If I knew But I don't, but I don't I can't make up anymore So I won't, no I won't There is an echo in the city Not my own It's impossible to belong to you But it does And the parts don't change just the way we arrange them And so on We're made of rhythm To check the time Stay in line That age old question That we all found Does it make a sound? I would go on If I knew But I don't, but I don't I can't make up anymore So I won't, no I won't There is an echo in the city Not my own It's impossible to belong to you But it does And the parts don't change just the way we arrange them And so on

Look in the mirror like a figure to ground We're all connected to a world looking down Keeping tabs on your friends like the C.I.A. Not worth taking more than two seconds to say How is your life How have you been? The fictionalized "let's get together again" A couple drinks out at the bar We're all caught up on who we are She flies, she goes Where everybody knows She's not the kind to leave a note A social stop, a passerby And on and on He tries to look but he don't wanna show A double standard friend or faux Together's past flashed in our eyes We smile for the sake of old Time How was your life How did you leave? Handwritten, penned inside your book sleeve Been nice to know ya, it still is You do you, we'll still be what we did She flies, she goes Where everybody knows She's not the kind to leave a note A social stop, a passerby And on and on He tries to look but he don't wanna show A double standard friend or faux Together's past flashed in our eyes We smile for the sake of old Time Suppose so And I've run out of fucks Now I've run out of breath So slam the door on me

In the land of the reel and the fake, Hollywood Brand names rub elbows with the others that they think they should Quick to reveal what's in the safe Hand shook reminders just who makes the taste 12 characters to make a name I vi IV V you're not to blame Pick up a prostitute of fame Use their cool and abuse it Just pass the mic and I'll act like I know what to say Catch the American dream out the barrel of a t-shirt gun Riots celebrate the new number one They don't wanna say it cos they're not gettin' paid for it Just business, just war Knock the last one off the throne of fame, what's one more? 12 characters to make a name I vi IV V you're not to blame Pick up a prostitute of fame Use their cool and abuse it

She slips in, it's unavoidable Pin my heart upon my sleeve With no one to remind her what it's like to leave She lives it up and out for free When her room spins the whole world it turns for her Jackets line the puddles ahead You wanted to change You wanted to stay I don't mind I'll try some other time And I won't miss you And plans, they change And the reason's the same Am I invited inside For one night Or it's already over With no one to remind me what it's like to live Say goodbye priorities When her room spins the whole world it turns for her Jackets line the puddles ahead You wanted to change You wanted to stay I don't mind I'll try some other time And I won't miss you And plans, they change And the reason's the same Am I invited inside For one night But it's already over

To catch a joke You’re either in on it or out of it and stay to complain What’s that you spoke? There’s no time for shame Is that the punch line Or set up? I’ve got a red light And I’m a hack cos someone else did this before Maybe Not everything we do needs explanation Baby It was a boy Maybe We look around to find our expectations Baby I’m unemployed One more down And the wheels are spinning out Two drinks in What a funny thing to say What’s that you spoke? Was that really one of your jokes? There is no punch line Or set up I’ve got a green light And I’m an act cos no one else did this before Maybe Not everything we do needs explanation Baby It was a boy Maybe We look around to find our expectations Baby I’m unemployed One more down And the wheels are spinning out Two drinks in What a funny thing to say

Anything you want That's alright with me, any way We could stay One hour more? And how blue notes dot our eyes when we play Hands they fold But not in this game I peeked I'm sorry I guess that probably means I'm going down It was Wide open scattered memories drop me to the ground Uninvited I know I don't stand a chance Spend the night in Save the last dance for me She takes her time Small steps to her next break Can we rewind? No, not in this game You peeked You're sorry I guess that probably means you're going down It was wide open Scattered memories knock me They knock me right into a... Will it be your place or mine? Free to be, to please There ain't no race against time And I will I would've I do I did not see this come until you Saw me standing in your rear view We peaked We're sorry I guess that probably means it's over now It was Wide open Scattered memories knock me to the ground

While we wait Decisions make Your bed Taking the long way around To lay down your head Borrowing tomorrow brings A little less to see (ecstasy) From where we came The next place to be We don't make the news Instead we sing the blues Chance is, romance is All we have to lose And I ain't got no voice in here Watching the wheels from the side Walking to catch a wave Goodbyes and greetings aside “Oh, we'll catch up someday” We don't make the news Instead we sing the blues Chance is, romance is All we have to lose Next time I'm around the sun I'll be twenty-four Chances, romances All we have for sure And I'll get my voice back

Summer's over Trips turn into falls It's been quite a while Since I left you I've had two photographs One from the front, one from the right And routine behavior ties you down to what's sure My personality's a summary of before Put a man in a cage for a day and see what he won't do the next Touch of tension pressure suits me up to play, just ask my ex Time without numbers or sunshine Journey through the inside, mind Doors Lead to doors Now I'm bored, inside a window This hollow cold In my bones It stays And vicious repetition some might find insane The right direction of intention makes a name Put a man in a cage for a day and see what he won't do the next Touch of tension pressure suits me up to play, just ask my ex Time without numbers or sunshine Journey through the inside, mind

She said she don't wanna be here anymore State the facts, state the case: “Take a look at my face My hands, my head, they're bleedin' and they're red” I know, I know, I don't care He said he don't wanna wake up in the sun, Make a statement: “Are we having fun? I'm lost, she's lost” They both got washed up in a bottle by the shore I don't wanna act my age So I'm told Lessons to be learned aren't sold It's the school of old Secrets don't make no difference Until they're bottled up and sent away from home Took a wave to turn a push into a shove Story short it's been a while since love I'm rough, she's rough, they both called bluff and shot the shit to dance some more She won't read from a script and she's not on stage He won't sleep in the sun and wake up dazed Okay? I don't wanna act my age So I'm told Lessons to be learned aren't sold It's the school of old

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
