kaidoi Met lead singer Gerry at an open mic this past summer, and was intoxicated by the honesty, and vividness of his lyrics. This album is truly excellent, one that I will continue to listen to and recommend to my friends. Can't wait to hear y'all live! Favorite track: Year Off.

Track Name: Year Off
To me the taste of something sweet
It’s so fresh to me, it’s so fresh to me
Pick out the dullest flower without
Leaves or thorns to keep out
All the bugs that eat it alive

It’s so, it’s so
Hard to make new friends
I just, I just
Collect dust in my room

My head is full of loose ends and thoughts
Unfinished things I forgot
Because my hands are too young to try

It’s so, it’s so
Hard to make new friends
I just, I just
Collect dust in my room
Track Name: Black Licorice
Want you to see how skinny my arms are, but how strong i can be
And if you’re willing to listen I’ll pour you a cup of tea, because I want you to hear this first
All my heartbreaks live in lyrics and tempos, not always broken by girls it’s sometimes broken by friends
I haven't heard my father say that he loves me in over two whole years, I’ll act like I don’t care

This song’s my black licorice
I hate the taste of it
Like I hate being poor
Shop at convenience stores

I’m always sitting staring at pictures of things that I can’t even afford
Spend money just cause I’m bored
And I’m trying so hard, but her boyfriends older than me
He likes to pop ecstasy, but candy’s all that I need

This song’s my black licorice
I hate the taste of it
Like I hate being poor
Shop at convenience stores

This song’s my black licorice
I hate the taste of it
Looking thru polaroids
Stay just to fill the void

Cause I love the smell of black licorice
But I hate the taste it shouldn’t even exist
And I tried to like it but the truth I’ll admit
That it’s the candy flavour I always skip
Track Name: Highlight Reel
No one wants to hold my hands
Cause they’re covered in blisters and calluses
From trying to start a band
I think I’m finally sick of it

And everyone is telling me “why don’t you just go back to school?”
But I can’t handle student debt
I think I’m way too scared of it

Cause I need self help and therapy
To clear my skin and to help me see

I like it when the seasons change
I like it when the leaves all fall
So I can put my hoodie on
And I can go for midnight walks

My skin care routine
Is barely doing shit for me
It’s probably cause I always sleep
Before my face is even clean

I think I have anxiety
Cause course selection is next week
But I think I’ll skip this fall
And I won’t see another lecture hall

Cause I need self help and therapy
To clear my skin and to help me see

Welcome to my highlight reel
I hope that you’re still listening
I hope you take your time with things
I hope you find just what you need
Welcome to my highlight reel
I hope you find someone you love
And try to be less hesitant
Develop from the negatives
