about

Palestrina Chicago, Illinois

Two-piece emo/punk/indie rock from Chicago. Bet you've never heard that one before. Sometimes L. sings and writes songs. Sometimes Johnny sings and writes songs. We're like the Tegan And Sara of punk rock except we're not siblings and neither of us are lesbians. ... more

Track Name: Brand New Song
I think I'm gonna make the worst out of every situation from now on
I don't know what I'm supposed to look forward to or how I'm gonna sing this song
I think I'm gonna feel the worst kind of feelings that my mother never said was okay
I don't know what I'm supposed to think about anything, I'm trying to find the right words to say

I'm sorry I don't give you what you want
I'm sorry I don't give you what you need
I'm sorry for the things that I think and never tell you 'cause I'm scared of how you're gonna respond
I'm sorry for the songs that I write that make it sound like things are going ever terribly wrong

I think I'm gonna dedicate every single song to you even when they're not good
I don't really wanna break anything that I don't have to
I think I'm gonna recreate every single thing that I have deeply suppressed
I don't really wanna wait for the next heart attack but I hope it's not you

I'm sorry I don't give you what you want
I'm sorry I don't give you what you need
I'm sorry for the things that I think and never tell you 'cause I'm scared of how you're gonna respond
I'm sorry for the songs that I write that make it sound like things are going ever terribly wrong

Will I remove myself from what I'm feeling?
Will I detach my lungs from the screaming?
Will I fall flat onto my chest and break everything?
I just want to go and break everything

Break everything at all in my path
And soon enough I think I will collapse
I can take it all with stride
Or I can take it till I die
Or I can leave it all behind
But I don't wanna leave you tonight
Track Name: Can't Believe
Was I ever alive?
And will I ever be free?
Was I ever alive?
Tell me

Was I ever alive?
And will I ever be free?
Was I ever alive?
Tell me

Feel this pain crash onto me
Feel this pain I can't believe
Feel this pain crash onto me
Feel this pain I can't believe

I loved you
I hate you
I can't believe
I can't believe
This isn't me
This isn't me
This isn't me
This isn't me
Track Name: I Bet You've Never Even Listened To 'Unknown Pleasures'
Confusion in her eyes it says it all, she's lost control
You don't know
You don't even know what the waves mean
You don't even know what the waves mean

You bought your t-shirt at a Hot Topic
You should go exchange it for a new lifestyle
You wouldn't know Disorder if it hit you
Straight across the face, Peter Hook line and sinker

It's common Ian Courtesy, common Ian Courtesy
You spend your Bernie Sumners pretending to cry
Pretending to air drum to Stephen Morris
The riff to 'Transmission'

The only division you're supporting
Is the one between those who believe
And those cheat
Track Name: Basement
Sitting here
In the basement
Write a song
For you, for you
Pickin' on this broken down guitar
I'm wondering how far away are you

Are you? Are you?

So light a few more sticks of incense
And write some poetry
Because standing here beside you
Is the place where I will always be, yeah
Light a few more sticks of incense
And write some poetry
Because standing here beside you
Is the place where I will always be, yeah
