about

The Silhouette Era San Francisco, California

The Silhouette Era define Northern California's own brand of surf pop; not that of hot summer nights, but of freezing dawns and the sobering ennui that can only be found when you look, bleary-eyed out into an infinity of grey sky and ocean.

Track Name: The Comeback
Damn the comeback
Longing for a time
when life was electric
Have the lights gone out

Built like home
Reminds you of your youth

Shake the feeling
Sets you back some years
Reckless, though learned that
those were our best times

Built like home
Reminds you of your youth
Track Name: Stripped
Casual lover
You say i just try too damn hard
Like a fool, i just don't get it
Heavy hearted,
take away the best of me and what is left
is a selfish, hopeless romantic

Strip me away
Till there's nothing

Hysterical reaction
Eyes that burn at the sight of you
hand in hand with another
Last chance to make amends
Don't care enough to try
Just don't novelize our lives

Strip me away
Till there's nothing
Track Name: Vagrants
My love,
I'll save you a drink
So we can both get smashed together
Raw deal i seem to get
when i'm around you
Let's try and stumble together

I don't want to leave
as things seem to pick up
But i do know when we're already used up

My wreck,
I'll cheers to the loss
So we can both get it together
Replace the feeling i used to get
Let's stay away from eachother

I don't want to leave
as things seem to pick up
But i do know when we're already used up
Track Name: Teenage Replica
Found our place amongst the broken
people
have to change
Like a drive home we're all quiet
people
say you're strange

Teenage replica
My heart goes out to you

Breathless tide of lust
we're stuck in
Locked in set in place
Helpless people tied together
Somethings never change

Teenage replica
My heart goes out to you
Track Name: The Apex of Movement
Eye to damn eye
we never meet
Given up on
trying to convince you of your affair
with the bottle you hold so close
Like you never loved before
But that's the reason i love you
My little wreck
Hate to see you fall that way
and love to be the one to hold your hand
when you fall...i'm already there
When i'm a wreck
You are a mess
When i'm a wreck
You are a mess
Let's get it together
Track Name: Electric Youth
Right now we're electric
Youth lost in something we'll lose
Fight to keep the sparks flying
Hold tight and don't let go
Hard to see what waits for us
Hard to know how we'll react

Electric Youth

Fire in our eyes now
Burns hard to keep us warm
Helps us forget life now
Hard to see what waits for us
Hard to know how we'll react

Electric Youth
Track Name: Old Flame
Old flame sparks forever
Late night lights the feeling
Just let go and tell me
how this song's about you
Like drugs and a stiff drink
got more kick

Old habit

Old flames excite together
Last time for old times sake
Just let go and tell me
old habits die hard

Old habit
Track Name: The Plastic Gun
Plastic gun for hire
You don't have to hide
Now this killer...heartbreaker
is gonna hit his stride
You know better than to cross this
plastic gun for hire

Observe that condition
Last look might just kill
And these tides of frequent changes
are unpredictable
You know better than to cross this
plastic gun for hire
