We've been besties with Kidlat Punch for a while now.
So we thought it fitting to make a split with them.

All proceeds go to SAFE Austin, an organization devoted to ending sexual assault and exploitation, child abuse and domestic violence through prevention, intervention and advocacy for change.

Pay nothing, or pay something.
We're happy to have you listen to our music, or donate to a wonderful cause.

Track Name: Intro-The Smile Bunch
I've been trying to find my place in life.
Can you help me find my place?
Track Name: Lavender-Kidlat Punch
How long has it been, since I fell back in line?
I drink 'till I pass out, I wake up at nine.
This sickness feels worse as I kill all my time.
My hands still feel dirty, but my head feels fine.

Death comes in waves, you'll feel this for days.
You'll never outrun it, get out of my way.

You feel it growing.
Track Name: Instrumental-The Smile Bunch
It's an instrumental track, duh.
Track Name: Fox Paws-Kidlat Punch
I'll take apart everything that I've said.
Wash away the indifferent thoughts that stay awake at night
Come to think of it, I've realized it's all on me.

I'm tired of dreaming.
And wasting all those lives
I know that I'm not living.
It's a different fix, I'll just stay in.

'Cause I'm not sure if I'll try again.
Could it be that we were young?
Well, maybe you're waiting too?

I'm sorry for my irrational fears.
Comes from a kid who writes to you
In hopes to hear you speak.
Well, maybe we're far from that
But maybe it's worth the wait.

You're finding yourself again.
I'm waiting here watching movies before my time.
They remind me of your voice
And I'll take comfort in that
Cause it's all I have.

But I'm not sure if I need you now.
I'll be here if you want.
And maybe I'll see you soon?

I am through with wishing you well,
Never made a difference in our lives.
I'll remember you as you were,
You'll remember all you could have been.
What you should have been.
