about

Animals in Cars Seattle, Washington

Through sunny melodies and heavily distorted guitars, Animals in Cars have delivered their own brand of noise across the Pacific Northwest. Drawing from a fondness for indie rock, this four piece crafts music that builds off of sonic territory previously explored by Sebadoh, Pavement, & Sonic Youth. ... more

Track Name: Old Days
let’s talk about the good old days again
the time we had the time we would pretend
nothing was in front of us
no plan was just enough
we would be forever kids again

and so it seems
still chasing the dream
and so it means
closer than we think

I know this day would surely have to come
when moving forward was just not enough
I need to fix these broken bones
with a little hope
I’m not young but I’m not that old

and so it seems
still chasing the dream
and so it means
closer than we think

where now
where now
where now
where now
can we go
Track Name: Confess
I believe everything that I see
I believe everything that I read
but it’s an illusion

all I see, I believe
all I read and everything that’s in between
please make it stop

I believe everything that I see
I believe everything that I read
but it’s an illusion

I don’t lie, I just can’t think for myself
so I guess I’ll just let someone else
please make it stop

on and on and on it goes, into infinity
on and on and on it goes, your divinity
no one ever has to know
but it’s in your heart

you must confess on your wedding day
take it to the grave
you must confess on your wedding day
take it to the grave
you must confess on your wedding day
nothing left to say
you must confess on your wedding day
take it to the grave
Track Name: Start to Understand
we start to understand
the world is in our hands
it might not be preplanned
or under their command

I hold you in my hands
I’ll always be your man
I’ll be there if I can
I’ll try to understand
Track Name: Battle
can we stay where we don’t belong
like a washed up oil drum
what do you really need
the map was out of reach

and it’s probably just another fork in the road
and it soon will be as smooth as rolling stones

won’t wear your fancy disguise
there is no reason why
complain because you can
the road is tough my friend

and it’s probably just another fork in the road
and it soon will be as smooth as rolling stones

cause we won’t battle, we won’t battle your ghost
and it won’t really matter, it won’t matter the most
and we won’t battle, we won’t battle your ghost
and it won’t really matter, it won’t matter the most

it won’t, it won’t, it won’t
Track Name: Tyco
woes me
where have you gone
you got lost just resting in the sun
cherub smile
with old man style
you got lost to see what you could find
you got lost to see what you could find

artists die
believing the lie
that all good art comes from a dark place
time to change
and rearrange
or you’ll get lost and never will be found
you’ll get lost and never will be found

don’t treat my friend like that
don’t treat my friend like that
or I’m coming for you
Track Name: Future Ain't Perfect
dragging your feet everywhere
somebody says hello but you’re not really there
I’ll be your clown for a laugh
just so I can see you smile back

nobody is your enemy

what keeps you from taking a chance
the future ain’t perfect but it’s all we have
you keep on searching the end
I’ll make mistakes then start once again

nobody is your enemy
