LIMITED TIME PAY WHAT YOU WANT DOWNLOAD! In celebration of our return home to NYC show at Bowery Electric, this song is pay what you want.

The title track from our brand spankin new EP. This is also the title number of our experimental folk-opera of the same name. And we are very proud to have our dear buddy Nick Petricca, of Walk the Moon, lending his velvety vocal stylings on this track as the character "Max" from the opera.


we are young
we meet for the first time
we look up and find
we've never had it any better
when we find he'll never get better
build the world and fight the time
i will never die

I make america, I
I am a universe, I
I'll never go away hey hey hey hey hey
I am a universe, I
I'm your man
I'll never go away away away hey

they say no
they don't believe us

and say goodbye

a hundred days
of bright light
hey hey away

of bright light

we are stars (wait for me)
we can burn forever (i am running)
bang bang bang
never coming back again (I have something to)
Never coming back again (I should tell you)
i'll break it open, find the wind (wait for me)
i'll hold all of the shards that make her (I am running)
(kiss and wave and nod and smile and hug explain and lie and buy and and bye bye bye bye)] x2
