    "First World Problems' six songs are youthful, slightly snotty and melodic, capturing the stage in any young band's career arc where there's nothing else they'd rather be doing and nothing hinting at real-world impediments that could stop the pursuit of living life from one gig to the next. That feeling is a big part of what makes punk rock so appealing in the first place and it's nice to see younger bands carrying it on." (Ben Conoley - Exclaim! Magazine)

Track Name: Inspired By True Events
This is all that I've been going through, while trying to pay the rent,
We could hit the road, we could try again
And it's so fucked up, It was one bad show,
now we'll never know

you gotta take the van to make it, you gotta let it be your life
you gotta play a show to two people with disapproving eyes
cause thats just how it goes, and we've been there before
At our last show on the road, he said

"You fuck with me, you fuck with all of my friends"
all we did was play a show with your shitty hardcore band, and you said
You'll kick my ass, but I've got paper and pen
and they'll play this song in riverside in the end

One awfully stupid night, is not enough to bail, to bail
You've always gotta try because you're never gonna succeed that easily,

We may never make it, but we'll play this every night
to remind us why we take the time to have it in our lives
'cause nights like that are worth it, in exchange for nights like this
At our first show on the road, we'll say

tonight tonight, I will show you my friends
we'll never give up, we will never give in

this is all that I've been going through, and I still can't pay the rent,
but we'll hit the road, we'll always try again
Track Name: We'll Always Be Scoundrels
the ship has sailed again, I walked the plank a hundred times,
but I never sank
the ship has sailed again, I walked the plank a hundred times,
but never sank
I never sank

It crosses my mind like a crucifix, a symbol of unending guilt and everyone's tricked
I'm reminded of times when I took out my anger on those who were close
to the gallows in my head again

maybe my friends will always believe in the laws of the sea
but those laws don't mean shit to me
'cause the sea is always changing and I will keep chasing the fog

lights line the coast like a constellation a signal to fight back the night
but the lights on the coast, are always changing
I'm seeing ghosts of my favorite people they act like they're still alive
but the ghosts in my head, are already dead

maybe my friends will always believe in the laws of the sea
but those laws don't mean shit to me

the ship has sailed again, I walked the plank a hundred times,
but I never sank
the ship has sailed again, I walked the plank a hundred times,
but never sank
I never sank
Track Name: I Wanna Be A Corellian Smuggler
Take the road and I will follow,
Nevermind the sky that's falling overhead,
'Cause I've got restless eyes and a reckless heart to match

You've got everything you want, but you don't know where it is
If you've got everything you need, then why aren't you smiling?

I've got restless eyes
Why do your eyes scream love, but you say you're leaving?'
I've got restless eyes
You say that I don't belong, and neither do you

Truth be told, I think tomorrow
but I know today's not over yet
And I know it's been a while, but I just can't forget

You've got everything you want, but you don't know where it is
If you've got everything you need, then smile for me please

I've got restless eyes
Why do your eyes scream love, but you say you're leaving?'
I've got restless eyes
You say that I don't belong, and neither do you

Tell me, why do you your eyes scream love?
Track Name: Cool Story Bro
I bet you, think it's cool
To go out to the bar now, drive drunk as fuck and pass out at someone else's place, I bet you think it's really safe to fuck without a condom and snort coke 'till your brain check's out.

You put the waste in wasted.
Track Name: Mouthbreather
What if I was stronger than this? would I be able to lift all your burdens with my little wrists?
you see it's been far too long, since you ran away and you said you left, but you never boarded that train, you just want to believe in all of the fairy tales, that you were told when you were young, they said when you got old you'd break every heart that you crossed but they never knew you'd come across me

If I'm always right, then I'm probably right about this, but I've been wrong before

I don't think before I speak, I just open my mouth and words come out and sometimes they're rude sometimes they're sweet, you know what I mean? you know, you know, you know, you know?

I don't think before I breathe, I just open my mouth and air comes out and I don't understand how you wound up with me, you know what I mean? you know, you know, you know, you know?

you see it's been far too long and I feel the same, and I know you left, but you never boarded that train, 'cause you cant believe in all of the fairy tales, you aren't old, but you aren't that young, I think that you believed you'd break every heart that you crossed, but you never thought, you'd come across me,
If I'm always right, then I'm probably right about this, but I've been wrong before

I don't think before I speak, I just open my mouth and words come out and sometimes they're rude sometimes they're sweet, you know what I mean? you know, you know, you know, you know?

I don't think before I breathe, I just open my mouth and air comes out and I don't understand how you wound up with me, you know what I mean? you know, you know, you know, you know?

I am smarter than this
Track Name: Hanging
Getting lost in the summer, I hung like the sun in the sky but I stayed up with the moon,
but there's always something that keeps me in tune with the fact it'll all be over soon

the time, that i've been wasting
I'm never wasting my time with you

if this isn't real then you can't tell me it's all been a dream
'cause I will never wake up,
take the fall, the winter and spring but I won't let the summer go just yet

we all know by now I'd rather be hot
but you can't appreciate, what you haven't got

so get lost in the summer and hang like the sun in the sky, and stay up with the moon
and don't let that something that takes the fun from your eyes catch up with you too soon

the time that we are wasting
we're never wasting our time with you

if this isn't real then you cant tell me it's all been a dream,
'cause I will never wake up
take the fall, the winter an spring but i, wont let the summer go just yet.
