Crashed into a tree near Reno Drank tall boys in the hot tub with my guys Went to the de Young and saw the Olmecs then out to Oakland for the laser lights I'm trying to keep it cool like Pingu when I just wanna curl up and die When my song came on I sang it with my eyes shut I could see the lyrics scrolling in my mind

He said "Recuerdame bonito y dejame morir en paz" He gave up on everything and he gave up on himself Makes me wonder if I'd give up like him too He always thought this was a hellhole But we're saguaros and we will survive Our taproots planted deep into Sonoran soil It's a dry heat, but I think it feels alright My roots extend from SSSJ to La Condesa and NELA I am sunburnt, I am tired, but I am strong and I'm inspired I will always love you till I'm old and gray So even if this is a hellhole We are saguaros and we will survive Our taproots planted deep into Sonoran soil It's a dry heat, but I think it feels alright

Western Wear 01:05
Everyone in their matching denim jackets looking so cool I was a little bit drunk and a lotta bit high that night In my fat boy pants and my western wear Oh, I'll never have a chance with you No, I'll never have a chance with you

It took so long to make this tape for you As if I'd written all the songs for you Moved to LA in search of something new Now I just work and sleep and dream of you I'm just trying to pay my bills Hope I have a little left for a teriyaki dinner for two It's always good to see you I hope the next time that I see you I'll finally be a grown ass man I hope you like the tape I made for you Still having trouble writing my own tunes Moved to LA and ain't got shit to do Not sure what I could ever offer you

I saw a pixelated tumbleweed rolling by your profile Why does every simple pleasure make me feel so simple? Make me feel so simple as can be...

I saw the end of days flying over east LA the day this asshole jizzed his $90 million load to space The flying saucers came and said the earth was fucking lame My tinfoil hat couldn't protect my brain from getting drained I believe in aliens, but I don't believe in man
7.
We're not alone Somebody's out there for me Somebody cosmic and sweet Somebody out of this world The government knows The government knows that I'm stoned The government knows that I know I know you're out there for me I could sing the Zentradi a song "Ventura, space people!" Spend every night staring up at the stars wondering when you'll come for me We're not alone

Interlude 00:24

I just wanna turn my brain off Maggie smuggled hash back on the plane from Aberdeen Got so high I slept through all my dreams Now I'm in a band with Animal & Jan Skip the show to hang out on the beach I just wanna turn my brain off

about

Power trio from Los Angeles featuring vocalist/bassist Bob Vielma, guitarist Chase Knobbe, and drummer Nick Aguilar. With an earnest and direct melodicism inspired by J-pop, disco, and 80s British punk, Fuss drop tiny anthems of life after your 20s: trying to keep cool when you feel terrible, working, and continuing to seek out community. Honest and vulnerable, their debut album We’re Not Alone captures the immediacy and uncertainty of the millennial experience: an openhearted yearning felt all the more intensely as the world falls apart around us.

Flying by in a brisk 16 minutes, We’re Not Alone arrives with the warmth of an old friend, and sounds better with each playthrough. Produced and recorded by Jeff Rosenstock on 8-track reel to reel tape in streetwear company Undefeated’s LA warehouse, the album expertly captures the infectious energy, punk songwriting and heartfelt emotions that Knobbe and Vielma have been making in their respective bands for the better part of two decades now.
