Fade into summer’s waning days The streets on fire Kindness and chaos draws me in The kids were right But is this for real Is this for real Is this for real Is this for real Or can we be free Wake up to silence and burnt black cars The streets are torn apart Teargas and terror fills up your eyes This ones for you to keep Cause this is for real This is for real This is for real This is for real This is for real This is for real And you can’t go back back

Summer Sun 04:26
See that sun, see that sun, see it blacking out all you knew It’s ok my dear, I still feel you, right beside me But I don’t know, I don’t know, if we’ll make it home from here Burnt bright haze of light, burnt up all we’ve ever known And I will run to you if this is anything So I gave up, I gave up, I can’t give up on you now We’ve got something here, we’ve got all we’ll ever need See that sun, see that sun, see it burning up all you know Burnt bright haze of light, burnt up all we’ve ever known An I will run to you if this is anything

Stay Still 05:05
Stay, there’s going to be a reckoning Stay, stay, there’s going to be a reckoning The first will be last, the last will be king Give up what you know, forsake everything Stay, there’s going to be a reckoning Stay still there’s going to be a reckoning Stay, there’s going to be a reckoning Stay still, there’s going to be a reckoning Did they teach you anything? They’ll put you in the ring Stay stay, there’s going to be a reckoning Save yourself, there’s going to be a reckoning And the Avant-garde are coming of age If you go, you give it away Stay Stay

I waited three whole days, but no one rose up to great me today I waited four more days, watching for the fires to fade away

City Sublet 04:25
In this city sublet A cop car is burning The next hazy morning No one is working Got evicted from heaven Couldn’t sweat it out Know I’m not a permanent man There’s no metro home a contract that's meant to crack opiates for the working class This infrastructure was built To fail and crumble In this city sublet A cop car is burning The next hazy morning No one is working a contract that's meant to crack opiates for the working class This infrastructure was built To fail and crumble Walked up to a mountain In the middle of an island Could have sworn I saw you Waving for help Walked to a mountain In the middle of an island Where the infrastructure was built To fail and crumble

We lost ourselves now Gave up everything we had Built up a pyre so we all could watch it burn ‘Cause there is something but I don’t know, if you want to see it through Is there life beyond this scene or will we just fade and burn It’s not alright when you find yourself alone It’s not alright when we forget the youth I found a moment To see, everything made clear Give up your fears now Yeah, just let them wash away Cause there is something to believe on a burnt broken old street When the kids have figured it out and they say it’s all messed up Cause there is something that deceives and the kids have figured it out Do you want to keep this going or will we just burn it down It’s not alright when you tear yourself apart It’s not alright when we forget the youth It’s not alright when you tear yourself apart It’s not alright when we forget the youth It’s not alright when you tear yourself apart It’s not alright when we forget the youth

Home 04:43
this home, it's what you were looking for it's right here, but it's not what you thought it would be it's here, is where we stumble from thing to thing and it's here, where I fell right into you home you are feel, the ground pass beneath your feet and see, the sun rise above us now and we'll feel, the passing of each little thing and watch, as your worries all just float away home you are home, it's what you were looking for and it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be home, it's what you were looking for and it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be home, it's what you were looking for and it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be now feel, the ground pass beneath your feet and we'll feel, the passing of each little thing take what you can, make it up in the end (home, it's what you were looking for) but you can't go back right now (it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be) you take what you can, make it up in the end (home, it's what you were looking for) but you can't go back right now (it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be) you take what you can, make it up in the end (home, it's what you were looking for) but you can't go back right now (it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be) take what can, take what you (home, it's what you were looking for) but you can't go back right now (it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be)

about

Slow Down Molasses Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

On their fourth album, 100% Sunshine, Slow Down Molasses dives into the deep end of existential dread and simmering, arena-sized guitar rock and somehow manages to emerge with a catalogue of music that sparkles with equal parts afterburn and jubilance.
