Mint State

Mint State hails from a barren wasteland called Mastic Beach. Nestled ever so comfortably in the arm pit of Long Island. We spent most of our high school years hanging out at punk shows and jamming in garages with the best of the best. Now we're here to take over the world. ... more

Track Name: Far Away
She writes
I think I'll be alright
No use for me to fight
and soon this will be over

Will turn back in to day
It'll always be this way
but time feels like it stopped

It might
Seem like this wont end
But I'll always be your friend
a million miles apart

Even if we dont figure this out
If we're still left here with some doubt
Will you stick it out for me?

The room is plagued with silence
Will you go down with me tonight?
Don't you feel so far away?
I cant count on you today
He turns his head and walks away
She starts to speak, no sound at all

Maybe we'll find common ground in separate towns
Or maybe we'll just fade away
But either way I'll be just fine, I'll be alright.
But lately we've seen better days

Time will tell
The world will turn
The stars will burn
We'll never learn
The sky will fall
On knees, we'll crawl
She starts to speak, no sound at all.
Track Name: Attention
Its raining, its pouring
the whole block is in mourning
crumbling to the earth
stumbling on their words

will i come back, it all depends
say goodbye to all your friends
the sirens they alert
with disaster we will flirt

the streetlights dim, the end begins
red lights bright, the go for fight
they're calling your name
though your fathers to blame

they said we only have tonight
so they dropped their hearts
and grabbed their arms to fight
they shot their guns
the battles won
but the war goes on

backwards talk, forward march
boots hit the ground
unison sound
the command came down, its time to light this town
raise the flag far up the wire
take theirs down, set it on fire
the win is bittersweet
blood-soaked upon this beach
the notes sent home, the ringing phone
an open field, you're all alone
the clouds surround, and the thunder sounds
the futures set, its carved in stone
the crowds disperse, they broke his thrown
a dove with broken wings
still the soldiers sing
Track Name: Radio
Why you turned so low?
I don't know
Why I think so slow

I'm so inspired
by the way she tried to
catch those stars herself

All the waves that fly through
the sky at night to
the antenna in your heart.

But the static
its a tragic mess
So erratic
And its got the best of me
