about

Radio Wire Empire Michigan

"Radio Wire Empire. Sort of like Passion Pit meets a band that can write more than one good song." - EatThisCity.com

"What do you get when folk music gets drunk, and inadvertently confuses Shoegazey Ambient Electronica for it's normal fuck buddy, rock music, booty calls SAE at two in the morning, forgets to wear a condom, and gets SAE pregnant?
You get Radio Wire Empire." - Tramps Upstairs

Track Name: Sea Legs
yesterday you said you changed your mind
your eyes speak the reasons i can't find,

it's not like i didn't try; i wanted this to work
but every time we say goodbye, you know, i can't make this hurt

what did we do? what could we say?
were the words just too night and day?
how did it come to spite and hate?
was there more than just an ocean in our way?

you make it look so easy, for me it's hard to do
i try to forget but all i'm left with are the plans i made with you

the last thing i want is for you to be unhappy
you'll be okay; you'll learn to breathe without me, some day

shaking, and you can't breathe, hidden in sound
the blood hits, and the crowd is still as stone
grab hold of the cables and look around
kill off all the monsters; your voice in the phone

what did we do? what could we say?
were the words just too night and day?
how did it come to spite and hate?
was there more than just an ocean in our way?
Track Name: Somewhere in the Middle
they'll only recognize your art when you're dead,
and even then you'll just be lost in a black and white montage;
just another regret
but i'm not gonna die, i'm not gonna be a name on a page, you'll remember me
memories will fight one another to the death, everybody's better than everybody else

so i'll aim low, sing high, and hope i land somewhere in the middle, my eyes to your eyes

everybody needs a little civil unrest sometimes
when life becomes an exercise in how well we block out the noise,
just long enough to make some of our own
yeah, i love bright clothes, but i hate being seen
500 miles in any direction is the unrest that i need

so i'll aim low, sing high, and hope i land somewhere in the middle, my eyes to your eyes
