Mod Exist Beautiful poppy rock with gorgeous vocals and a unique and unusual sound. Reminiscent of Le Butcherettes and possibly The Cranberries. My favourite track was Rock Paper Scissors due to the eclectic heavy distorted breakdown and the contrast between that and chilled out bliss. Favorite track: Rock Paper Scissors.

Track Name: Alone In Tokyo
Empty suitcases we fill with body parts
A part of me & a part of your heart
Folded down so small (delicate)
Now, the future to unfold
Packed in tightly, only to unravel all they hold

Am I the girl who makes you believe
God does exist in all manner of things?
I will ruin your quiet life

Maybe I’m afraid
Without you I am by myself
I am by myself and my selfish ambitions
Tease my mental health, my health, my health

Am I the girl who makes you believe
God does exist in all manner of things?
I will ruin your quiet life

I will not go if you will not go, so calm my fears
You’re still not too old to refuse my foolish ideas
Track Name: Rock Paper Scissors
So, let’s take a slow walk
All the way back home
Dizzy from vertigo
Into the night,
You pierce the silence
With your heartbeat and I
Remember the first time we met
How you set me on fire!
What is to become of us now?

Higher, are you gonna take the magic higher?
Are you gonna turn the heat up higher?
We begin to melt away
And as we play the game
Watch as we decay
With a knowing smile, do you, do you, do you
Do you remember the first time we met?
How you set me on fire!
What is to become of us now?

Always so many complications
This is so very typical
What is to become us now?

Can I come over and play
Rock, paper, scissors while you sleep?
Track Name: Shinichi Kudo
I was running on empty, you were running away
I was questioning reason trying to get you to stay
There’s freedom in solace, so they say

Tell me what would you do
if you discovered your lover is in love with another?

I feel skeletal; lifeless… you carry on with your day
I don’t know where to go from here
Am I supposed to pretend I’m okay?
Well I’ll take care of the things only I can control
My body, and my heart, and my mind, and my soul

Tell me what would you do
if you discovered your lover is in love with another?
Tell me what would you do…

And if you’re awake:
Can you hear my heart racing?
The sharp intaking of breath?
The asymmetric rising and falling of my chest?
The hardest thing in life is letting go of the one you love

The prophets did not prophesy
The hardest thing in life is letting go of the one you love
The visions came from blinded eyes
The hardest thing in life is letting go of the one you love
Track Name: Traxx
Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled
I am not on the map
Yesterday is no tomorrow
I won’t look back, I won’t let go
When this ocean overflows

She knows she will dry as she stands in the rain
And stares up at the clouds so when the storm starts again
She knows she will dry as she stands with no shame
And cares not for the crowds who ridicule her name and
She knows she will dry so when the heavens open wide
She knows it’s her time, she will know to be alive
And she said, I’m
Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled
I am not on the map.
Yesterday is no tomorrow.
I won’t look back, I won’t let go
When this ocean overflows
And I’m searching for something worth seeking
instead of giving in to what’s given
I regret that it appears that I have lost my head
The emerald rivers have swallowed my bed
And now I can’t lie anymore.

So when the truth comes out
When the whispers of the waves begin to shout
She said, “I know I’ll find my way…”
She said, “I know I’ll find my way, but I’m…
Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled
I am not on the map.
Yesterday is no tomorrow.
I won’t look back, I won’t let go
When this ocean overflows
And I’m searching for something worth seeking
instead of giving in to what’s given
I regret that it appears that I have lost my head
The emerald rivers have swallowed my bed
And now I can’t lie anymore”

I know I will dry, so when the heavens open wide
I know it’s my time, I will know to be alive
Track Name: Mimic My Shins
Mimic my shins; I’m hexavalent chromium A
A diagnosis of a dying relationship
I’ll break if we take this together now
Mimic my shins; I’m hexavalent chromium A
A diagnosis of a dying relationship
I’ll break if we take this together now
Make yesterday my home mountain,
I’ll make yesterday my home mountain.

Today I wrote a picture
Of a sea barbecue
Where the party started a little brittle
So now let’s play
Train times, ride giveaway
And a trip to buy the Super Nintendo

Mimic my shins; I’m hexavalent chromium A
A diagnosis of a dying relationship
I’ll break if we take this together now
Make yesterday my home mountain,
I’ll make yesterday my home mountain.

Tomorrow will be tacky birthday
at Miyazaki’s Grandpa House
I want to be healed and soak up in the bath
Dropout criminal
On overnight buses
And caterpillar races
He’s a hella nice person

Mimic my shins; I’m hexavalent chromium A
A diagnosis of a dying relationship
I’ll break if we take this together now
Make yesterday my home mountain,
I’ll make yesterday my home mountain.
Make yesterday my home mountain,
I’ll make yesterday my home mountain.
Make yesterday my home mountain,
I’ll make yesterday my home mountain.
Make yesterday my home mountain,
BUT YESTERDAY MY HOME MELTED!
