about

On their debut, Audiences pair arena-ready soundscapes with narrative lyricism, emotive harmonies, and swirling guitar solos. Roam is a truly unique and highly original telling, captured here for the very first time.

Track Name: Get Like This
Get Like This

Darling I can raise myself
I think it’s time I learned how
I’ve tempered all them youthfall thoughts
and I left them in a parking lot

and you and I we both got jobs
we lost our minds
and found at once
we’re nostalgic
counting things we miss
and what’d we give
to get like this

and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on

Darling I’m a loss for words
and I think it’s time that you speak first
you say something but I hear you wrong
and it’s almost like the dream is gone

and you and I we both got jobs
we lost our minds
and found at once
we’re nostalgic
counting things we miss
and what’d we give
to get like this

and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on and on
and on

and is this how it ends
in a great big house
with the curtains drawn
and the powers out
as you rush your words
through ringing ears
about how the past is fine
cuz’ it brought us here, it brought us here
Well, there’s a breeze tonight
and it can change you too
or carry things from a place I knew
and all at once
in a parking lot
the wind sweeps up some things
that I thought I lost, yeah I thought I lost.
Track Name: Roam
Roam:
Dad, you and ma’ you taught me how to pray
and I did,
but I’m much too shy to say
and so
I met a girl and now we’re set to wed
is it wrong
to be young, in love like this
Still, all I ever wanted was to roam
and I will, but it won’t be on my own
and now
I wonder how far West we’ll get to go
and If i’ll
ever find my way back home
Track Name: We Wanted More
We Wanted More:
Windows rose to the avenue
The scent of sweet summer air
in my living room
Music blairs while my love is gone
and on the fourth of July
it’s some Springsteen song

And we wanted more
We wanted more
We wanted more like they taught us to

Evening washing over me
an empty house
a nearby sound,
somebody laughing
A sparkler and a passerby
remember blankets
in the park
under a smoke filled sky

And we wanted more
We wanted more
We wanted more like they taught us to

So damn livid you lost it in the end
You threw a great fight
but you cannot win
Your heart plays to a rhythm your head don't understand
and it might someday
but you don't know when
cuz they taught you how to get all these things they said you’d need
but if that word still exists
I’m not sure what it means

And we wanted more
We wanted more
We wanted more
Track Name: Fifty
Fifty:
Some nights
I’ll be
wasted
Out the city in a possible Heaven
My body’s
breaking
It moves like a wave,
kind of pools,
kind of crashes.
Till I
capsize
and it’s like
a world that floats might not save a boat from sinking
and I’m sinking,
but I’m sinking
this world that floats might not save me from sinking

Long as
there’s make up
I’ll be
Young
and honey I’ll be pretty
that’s how
she tells me,
my Granny,
that she might
move somewhere outside of the city
out the city,
out the city,
Moves like a wave somewhere outside her city
out the city
out the city
out the city to a possible Heaven
And we lose ourselves
In mind body spirit,
but we’re holding on to
what's coming after
Maybe the world you need's
Locked In the vanity’s cabinet
Or
Maybe you'll float with me
on some sinking planet
and if you want it
you should hold on
and if you need it
honey you should hold on
sometimes
I get a feeling that too strong
it makes me want to lose it
and I think
hold on
hold on
hold. on.
Track Name: Show Of Hands
Show of Hands

Play me a good one
because baby,
I’m not going anywhere
and you look like you’re much better
than last time
I found you here.

cage the alarm
and draw back the curtains
cuz’ the best song
the best song’s gonna break

Here we are now at dawn
and by the evening will become
just a figment of
light, time, and air

and show of hands
how many takes them
in another band
you’d walk it off
I tell on them
but I swear I’m many
and if I roll the dice
would you come up short?
Track Name: Missouri
Missouri:

I found a place I can live there
don’t you say I’m not that kind of man
who can walk away unanswered
when all i asked was this:

“let me take you home.”
Guided by voices,
deranged,
deranged my dear
“Say something I’ll echo”
“I love you too”

and if i’m leaving tomorrow
will you be with me
oh
I’m straight of hoping
you’ll come back to haunt me

cause’ everywhere I’ve been
they talk like this:

“let me take you home.”
Guided by voices,
deranged,
deranged my dear
“Say something I’ll echo”
“I love you too”

cause’ everywhere I’ve been
they talk like this:

cause’ everywhere I’ve been
they talk like this:
Track Name: Drunk Man
We hold hands
and I am a drunk man
where time stands
you’ll be coming home,
again.

And you’ve sown me
light
onto the breeze there
Release me,
soft unto the islands,
amen
Track Name: 1000 Nights
To the parking lots where we used to hang
on the hoods of cars
staring up at things
said i knew you when

To the thousand nights
I spent alone
in the wishing well
of my parents home
said i knew myself

To the music you
forever made
asked me not to cry
though you’d gone away
said i knew you once

and I knew you all

and hold your head lightly
but high enough to speak up
this is a toast to all of you
we are our pursuits
Track Name: Devil's Son
Devil’s Son:

Devil’s son
why don’t you come along
It won’t be long
till they find we shot em’ all dead.
And a bullet’s loud,
but the band came from all around, all around.

And still you ought to find a man better than I.
And still you ought to find a man better than I.
And still you ought to find a man of filth and grime, way downtown.

We better run,
aww damn,
we better run.
I lidded eyes,
bloodied hands
in the morning sun

And still you ought to find a man better than I.
And still you ought to find a man better than I.
And still you ought to find a man of filth and grime, way downtown.
