The act of creation is found within the war between chaos and order. Ben (bass) came up with the concept for Rocket Quaffle one night when we were watching Zach's (keys) mom's dog. He ended up pulling an all-nighter and in a fit wrote down the entirety of the screenplay. His idea was to make the video first, and write and record a song to fit it afterward. It took about 5 months to finish, and we couldn't have done it without a ton of help from some of our friends. Molly Wheat - www.facebook.com/tinybirdwings/?fref=ts - and Ben Drain - bendrainvideo.wixsite.com/portfolio - helped so much by offering their expertise in filming and editing. Check out their stuff! We hope you enjoy :)

lyrics

Staunch reputation,
you can't give a hug without rebound,
bouncing around anxiety bound
for Chinese finger traps wound from
mental gout in your gut that just won't give it up.
Rode the bluff on the bus
that you don't give a fuck,
(but I do, but I do, but I do)
by the blunt, some are just more corrupt and
cops don't always cuff,
sometimes don't put trust in the government.
Your time turns to rust when you find the fear
thrust inside of us.
It's a wondrous lust:
the golden buzz or the bust.

Cynics live
inside a lie,
they wonder, "why?"

They wonder why
we wander by and
then we die.

They feel
to cry is shy,
they wonder, "why?"

They wonder why
we'd wander by
(we'd live a lie)
and then we'd die.

They wonder why
we wander by
(we live a lie)
and then we die.

You don't,
you don't know so I don't,
I don't care cause you know,
you know where my lies go.
