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: East End
Little girl, why don't you call out to Jersey City
Just a train to separate
This filthy river
Think she could swim
Across to him
He'd sink to Hell
She'd float on right back towards herself

On this side I have it all with notes and love and laughter
I still long for the East End and 82nd
Does she still cry
Through jealous eyes
Does she still drink
Through bottled wine and shattered glass

Why couldn't you just wait here
And count up all the times you scared me
I wish that I could take it back

I'll wonder if you're lonely
And sort it out when I'm in therapy
Just to start it all again

Record these songs just to escape
From the thoughts she stars in
Reality is cast aside
No time for sadness

What says the shrink
About these dreams
Let's write them down
In the form of a song and ask

Why are there tears
Almost been a year and I know
I'm better off without you here

I hope that you hear these three words from me
I apologize for the nights you'd weep
I was so obsessed with those Brooklyn lights
Forgot what you meant to me I lied
Track Name: Girls
Here in California
I stepped in paranoia
And twisted my ankle thinking of you

I don't remember saying
This girl will end up paying
Her whole life to the cause of bride and groom

These shows make it all better
Alive in this great weather
Though I can't help but scold the setting sun

I wish that I could just not think about girls, in general
Prioritize my life with dreams and hopes, drugs and chemicals
Don't think it's love or infatuation, just insecurity
Convince myself that it's a lonely phase and fear of commitment

I'll step in the Pacific
And drown myself in linens
Then suffocate the sadness from this dream

You'll walk right up this mountain
Your steps I will be counting
I'll trip and fall and roll back down to earth
(and you'll start running away)

It's not one it's two or three
Another day another she
Those New York nights I fantasize
Or Philadelphia trips, I can't decide
