about

TEENCAT Ithaca, New York

Teencat thinks you’re hot and hopes you have ears.

Often described as a sexy fruit salad that plays upbeat pop-punk and post-punk music in alternating strokes of their flesh-paws, the band is sometimes chided for their unwillingness to take most things and people seriously. ... more

Track Name: Good Fences
Do you wanna stand still here
And listen to the story?
Do you wanna feel something
Wanna let that happen?
Do you wanna be open
Take leave of your skills?
Make a waste of the time
You spent building this armor:

Just wring em out
And don’t stop moving
Keep on breathing, keep on moving
Maybe this is what
Makes you human but I don’t have to
I don’t want to

Do you wanna be honest
After all of this damn time
That you spent getting so good
At winning this battle
And are you gonna let them
Tell ya that you belong here
That because you’re a human
This is what you must be:

Let them evaporate
And just get moving
Keep on breathing, laugh like it’s nothing
Maybe this is what
Makes us human but I don’t have to
I don’t want to.
I don’t know what to leave behind
So I try to leave it all
I don’t know how to say goodbye
So I say nothing at all
I don’t know if I’m alright
So you can make that call
I don’t know what I look like
Is there anyone here at all?
Track Name: Archie Justice
Ooooh-oh
Those terrible things
Hold out their fingers
covered in rings
Ooooh-oh
Concievable kings
Try to know us
Try to push us to go
Posing as someone we know…

Put something on your back
Move your feet a little bit
Faster, faster
You know how to attack
But maybe now’s a time to
Answer, answer

(You can) hide in the trees for all your life
No one else can take advice
Keep your eye on the people below
In a world of words will anyone know

If not for you and I
This wool’s as good as dyed
The tricks they play
Have already won the day.
If not for you and I
Who keeps the dream alive?
The games we play
Are they worth the price we could pay?

Please don’t turn your back
Don’t walk away from us
Faster, faster
Besides the red or black
None of us can know the
Answer, answer

You gotta come down from the trees some time
And maybe you could build a lie
Meant to help the people below
It’s a world of words and no one knows

If not for you and I
Who keeps the dream alive?
The tricks we play
Have already won the day.
If not for you and I
Who keeps the dream alive?
The games we play
Are they worth the price we could pay?

If not for you and I
Who keeps the dream alive
The tricks we play
Have already won the day.
If not for you and I
Who keeps the dream alive
The games we play
Are they worth the price we could pay?

I picture your face and it’s all I have
Remembering where we began.
When the wind dies down and the water is still
Believing in us, beginning a plan:
It begins with a stranger,
Don’t mind the danger,
No one will know
Nobody can.
Track Name: Coronas in Arizona
Open up a bottle
And open up your ears
Play whatever you can
Play whatever you’ve got

If you open up your eyes
They might dry right out
And if you open up your mouth
You’ll never talk again

But if you lay your body down
On the hot hot stones
You’ll never get cold,
Never ever get cold.

Something cold
something green,
something gold
Everyone out here is old,
but I will never be

The only trees that grow here
Are low and pale
and may as well be dust
they may as well be dust
or shaped like ancient strangers
That will someday march on all of us

Take to the hills
Hold up your arms
Take to the mountains
Drink up the sun

Swallow that gold light
Let it inside
Stay with me
Stay with me

You can see for miles
You can chase the fading light
Where the red mountains glow
And stay warm through the night
The birds sing songs
That have words you don’t know
And the sky is a map
Of a place you can’t go.

Look through the dark
Look to the sky
To the stars and the lights that go by
Still and yet turning
Adrift in a waterless sea
Stay with me.
