about

The Strawberry Moons San Diego, California

Needing a female singer to give voice to the sounds in his head, Will approached Aimee about collaborating. They soon realized their writing styles worked well together. After some time spent trying to solidify a line up, John, then Jason, then finally Dustin were brought in to make it an actual band. Elements of indie pop, psychedelic and '60s rock with an emphasis on melody and guy-girl vocals. ... more

Track Name: Microphone
I told you so many pretty things
Words they die, left with nothing
Used to see no future without you
The future dumped me
I wound up black and blue

Black, blue, dark, insane...

(Chorus:)
Step right up the microphone
All the things that I did wrong
All the ways I done you wrong
I turn around, jump, dive and leave you alone
2x

Once I had a dollar, I turned it into two
Turned it into four once more
Thought I won the moon
Of course I threw it all away
I threw you too
Guess I love nothing
Guess I'll die with nothing too

Black, blue, dark, insane...

(Repeat Chorus)

Playing give and take away
Playing all my life
Give, give, give, give take away
Wrong side of the knife
2x

Black, blue, dark, insane...

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
Track Name: Smiling Face
I don't know where my phone is
I already lost it today
I don't know where I'm going
I just started walking at my usual pace

And if there's someone out there
Who's got the key to my cage
I'd like to meet a mister who can
Count on my misbehavior
To point me in direction of a
Smiling face
I'm looking for my smiling face
Point me in direction of a
Smiling face

Come fly down to danger island
Give me just a minute to explain
I can't decide which way I want to lean in
I'm trying to determine if my better half will stay

Cause I could swear we're falling
Off the same hills we made
And if you are the mister will you
Count on my misbehavior
To point me in direction to a
Smiling face
I'm looking for my smiling face
Point me in direction of a
Smiling face

And I could swear we're falling
Off the same hills we made
And if there's someone out there
Who's got the key to my cage
I hope you are the mister will you
Count on my misbehavior
To point me in direction to a
Smiling face
I'm looking for my smiling face
Point me in direction of a
Smiling face
Track Name: When We Are Animals
I like your hair, I like the things you wear
I've got my cat eyes on you
I ain't nobody's friend here
But I could see being friends with you
If you've got the urge to hit or strike my nerves
Go ahead and test out your girl
She tastes bittersweet like an apple
Attached to its tree

(Chorus:)
When we are animals
I push, you pull
When we are animals
No one needs to know

I like her walk, the way her hands talk
She's got a buzz round her head
I've got my ragged friends here
But the bar's got a spotlight on you
She's a bit of a mess like the paintings that hang
From the graffiti walls
One more cheers and I'll be sweet to hear
When my siren sets off

(Repeat chorus)

But if we speak I can't be mean
To defend my sub-conscious thoughts
Mais si nous parlons, je ne peux
Pas etre mechant

I like your hair, I like the things you wear
I've got my cat eyes on you
I ain't nobody's friend here
But I could see being friends with you

(Repeat chorus)

But if we speak I can't be mean
To defend my sub-conscious thoughts
Mais si nous parlons, je ne peux
Pas etre mechant
Track Name: Dear Johnny
Hey Dear Johnny, I got something to say
I love you so much… I’m leaving today
Already packed up everything in my room
Wasn’t meant to be me and you
Maybe I’m a coward, a little scared
I’ll accept my role in this end
But I see we ain’t the pair
We were when we started this affair
Can’t keep drinking, can’t keep fighting
Can’t keep loving you, can’t keep crying
There are demons in both of us
Kicking and screaming, making a fuss

About this… We’ve missed…
Beauty for ugliness
With this… Goodbye kiss…
I will begin again

Dear dear Johnny, it’s those things that you say
The look in your eyes, intense gaze
The passion in your voice when you speak about
Things you believe, have no doubts
Feel like I’m living in your glorious wake
It’s all too much, I’m starting to fake
Meaning, there’s no meaning, there’s no meaning for me
I lose myself in what you believe

About this… You’ve missed…
Beauty for ugliness
With this… Goodbye kiss…
I will begin again
I will begin again
I will begin again

Can’t stop drinking, can’t stop fighting
You can’t stop loving me, I ain’t buying
There are demons in your head
They take up the room in our bed
Feel like I’m living only half awake
You don’t hear me, I scream in your face
Meaning, there’s no meaning, there’s no meaning no more
… You’re such a bore

And this… We’ve missed…
Beauty for ugliness
With this… Goodbye kiss…
I will begin again
I will begin again
