about

I am overwhelmed by the amount of help and support I have received in the creation of this record. Huge shout out to David Castillo and Eric Segerstrom for the countless late night trips, and their overall enthusiasm surrounding this project. Special thanks to Kyle Joseph for his vision and unbelievable engineering talent. This sonic progression would not have been possible without you. Big thank you as well to Jon Markson for his help and continued guidance. Lastly, thanks to all of you for listening. The process of making DB run can be taxing and frustrating, but your support makes it all worth it. Thank you.
-Connor

about

Dizzy Bats New York, New York

Dizzy Bats is a New York City Pop Punk band started in the summer of 2011. Influenced by punk outfits out of the late 90s and early 2000s, they use power chords over heavily-picked basslines and infectious melodies as a vehicle for fun, energetic, Power Pop. Dizzy Bats boast an honest reflection on times past and the everyday angst that comes with being a twentysomething. ... more

Track Name: Angry Eyes
This place is just not right for you
But do you think, do you think that your friends are even cool?
Your mask of happiness
Disguised you so well
Alleged tears, I
Could not even tell

Semester gone, we hear no words
Of something wrong, nothing's wrong
Except complaints we've always heard
We drink for fun
And then we drink to friends
I gave you my drink and you
Kept it till the end of the night

I wish you the best of luck despite these angry eyes
I'll trust that I'll sing these tunes to remember
The good times

Can't get this damn shit off my mind
We smoke this blunt, double shot
How can these not be good times
You had a pretty girl
You said she rocked your world
Is everything alright, I ask
In me you can confide

Three days and finally a call
Bon voyage, bow your head
For the way these weeks have gone
Cannot pretend
That I'm not mad
Track Name: These Kids I Teach
Is this not what you want, because I think it suits me
Will you put on my tie, properly comb my hair
Still shunned away from
Your world evil still
Kinda wish you took the pill

Here I'm stuck on the ledge of your condescension
Keep on putting me down, I hear it's good for your skin
Congratulations
On your victory, graded satisfactory

And to you I say
Why do you give a shit?
I don't believe we've even met
I just woke up from surgery
But you can't see this through your greed
I love this life these kids I teach
So I won't let you fuck with me
Goodbye, 再见 (zai jian) that's all for now
Please take your bow
Put on your crown
You just want me to grow

I'm trying to figure it out, why you can't scream sorry
Why do I feel the need to gift wrap my apologies
Oh please, miss
Leave me to my job
To mold the minds of future cogs
Track Name: Batman and the Joker
The Joker says, why so serious?
The Batman says, why in God we trust?
The gunman asks, am I lonely here?
Please shed me your tears
I'll keep them for myself

This boy sits
To watch this new movie
Rated "L" for life and destiny
No D's for dream
Or refunds or exchanges

The laid off screams, terminate this man
And then he plots, elaborate midtown scare
Yes it's solved
Avenges and escapes
To meet up at the gates
Sent to fire again

We stand here
Scratching society's head
Wondering why, we learn these games of dead
An easy curve
I'll teach you how next time

Still she sits
To watch this new movie
She does cry
Why held by her dark steed
No more time
To wash away her fears
To the lost
Whose breath was shaped by lead
One last thread
Track Name: Appendectomy
Here I lay on this hospital bed
Feeling so dead
Seeing straight red
Fortnight away from society
Seven bucks a day for cable TV

Three days in and you haven't called
Why must you crawl
Back to my head
Your the one that I want by my side
Reading the times as I cry

Alarm goes off and I hear you
Calling my name like you use to do
Oh how I wish that you would worry about me
Sing about me
Sigh for me and say it's OK

Here I bitch as I call for Mom
Not considering, what's really wrong
I can sit here and write this song
That's like taking a shot for free
Everybody is due their time
I hypothesized and realized
Look this man sitting next to me
He begs for appendectomy

This pain masks the yearn for your comforting breath
Thank you, percocet
These injected dreams run through veins that detest
This drain of regret
No reason to scream, tomorrow you're free

Stop cryin'
You're not dyin'
Today
