Album biography (for anyone who cares ;p ):

Writing for this album began two years from the official recording date of the EP. 'Above The Ground' and 'Amity Island' were originally from BTAN's Oct 3rd 2014, released EP, Sharing Silence. The at-the-time duo, while residing in Denton, TX, began recording the original draft for 'Staring Back At Me' throughout the month of March 2015. While the song recieved good reception from fans and friends, the duo decided to take a hiatus and get adjusted to adulthood troubles before pursuing the band again. It wasn't until September 2015 before the band was demoing again. Demos for 'Everything Will Be Okay' and 'Try & Fail' were made during this time period, with all instruments being performed by Jeffrey, as him and the band were split up between Denton, TX and the five hour away San Antonio, TX.

January 1st is when Jeffrey L. had moved back to his hometown in San Antonio, TX, to regather with Nick and recruit Quentin Williams as the drummer, and Noah Riojas as the lead guitarist. After a few months of practicing, and a few member changes, the band was left with Jeffrey L. on lead vocals and rhythm/lead guitars, Nick Zook on bass and vocals, and Jeffrey Moreno on drums. The trio began playing shows in their hometown of San Antonio, Texas, and once their name was spread and their shows were successful in the area, they began venturing out into Denton, Austin, Houston, and Corpus Christi where the shows in those areas were also fairly successful.

All the shows happened while the trio was hard at work recording WTMMTS with engineer/producer Brandon Layne. Recording for the album began shortly after their first show on May 4th and lasted all the way to the first week of December. Many sleepless nights were put upon everyone involved with this album to deliver the listener with, not just ecstatic music, but with an experience from when you hit play to the very last second of the album.

BTAN 2016 thanks everyone involved with the album, and thanks all of their loyal friends, fans and family for getting them to the point where they are currently. Without you all, the band wouldn't have thrived at all, and they will never forget it.

Track Name: Words Are Melodies
We are one step forward,
you are two steps back.
Sometimes I wish you'd get a grip,
instead of always trying to be so sad that,
We are one step forward,
you're twelve whole steps back.
I hope the words and melodies,
get stuck inside your head before this ends.

So I'll just say it,
I really hate it.
The way you look inside my soul,
like you just want it,
but to be honest,
I can not stand the way you talk.

Because as far as I'm concerned,
you never really cared,
you were never really there at all,
and it's keeping me up nights,
to think that this is all you,
to think that this is all I got.

Without you there I,
felt like a ghost,
but now it seems like you,
do not have the most.
Conspicuous,
intentions at heart.
Maybe that's the reason why you're gonna fall-a,
gonna fall apart.

Gonna fall apart,
apart,
apart,
apart.

We are one step forward,
you are two steps back.
Sometimes I wish you'd get a grip,
instead of always trying to be so sad that,
we are one step forward,
you're twelve whole steps back.
I hope the words and melodies,
get stuck inside your head before we,

draw the line,
and then you'll cross it.
Told all your friends,
so then I fucking lost it.

Now I realized that this is everything I hate and more.

Without you there,
I felt like a ghost,
but now it seems like you,
do not have the most.
Conspicuous,
intentions at heart.
Maybe that's the reason why you're,
gonna fall-a,
gonna fall apart.

Gonna fall apart,
apart,
apart,
apart,

Maybe that's the reason why you fail at everything you try.
Maybe that's the reason why you're falling apart.
Track Name: Above The Ground
Let's take back everything we worked for,
and throw it all away.
Along with every selfish thing that they have to say.
This time I can't,
erase what they all said.
When you dig down inside,
you'll,
finally find yourself.

Keep this mind of yours,
Above The Ground,
you've got a lot to prove so,
keep calm,
keep calm
KEEP CALM.
And you know they're wrong,
and you know you've got to keep this up.

Yeah they'll say,
it till the end of their days.
"You'll never learn if you keep running,
from the things that they say"
Don't let the rising sun begin to set,
on this dream,
that you've built,
all by yourself.

And you'll run,
and you'll hide,
but you'll see this through to the end.
You've got,
your whole life left to live.
Are you forgetting,
the voices in your head,
telling you to give up,
to give in?

Keep this mind of yours,
Above The Ground,
you've got a lot to prove so keep calm,
keep calm,
KEEP CALM,
and you know they're wrong.
and you know you've got to keep this up.

And you'll run,
and you'll hide,
but you'll see this through,
to the end.
you've got,
your whole life left to live.
Are you forgetting,
the voices in your head,
telling you to give up,
to give in?

Keep this mind of yours,
Above The Ground,
you've got a lot to prove so keep calm,
keep calm,
KEEP CALM.
and you know they're wrong,
and you know you've got to keep this up.
Track Name: Everything Will Be Okay
Does everything work out when you want it to,
or am I just standing here?
Hoping for the best,
because the worst of this is all I ever seem to get.
Another day spent,
laying down in my bed.
Voices circling my head,
I wish that they would go away.

Everything as gonna be okay and it's because,

The setting sun,
will rise the next day,
and it makes me feel like,
everything's gonna be okay.

Like it will all be okay,
like it will all be okay.
Like everything on this earth,
is gonna work out for...

You and me,
but everywhere I look I see,
hate and greed,
overflow in through yards and streets,
in mass & mass.
And it's been eating me alive.
and it's making me feel like,
nothing's ever forreal,
and I just need an exit,
but I never even really found the entrance.

Everything is gonna be okay and it's because,

The setting sun,
will rise the next day.
and it makes me feel like,
everything's gonna be okay.

Like it will all be okay,
Like it will all be okay,
Like everything on this earth,
is gunna work out for me.

What I'd like most is to get out of this town.
What I'd like most is to get out of here.

x2

The setting sun,
will rise the next day,
and it makes me feel like everything is,
gonna be okay.

Like it will all be okay,
like it will all be okay,
like everything on this earth,
is gunna work out for me.

Like everything on this earth,
is gonna work out for me.
Track Name: Staring Back At Me
Well will you look at what we have here,
a chapter from the book that I thought,
disappeared.
I can't believe this,
will you take my hand?
Will you write this chapter with me?

You're still as gorgeous as the day we first met,
do you remember that,
by the way?
We laughed and we would play,
until the distance came and took you away.

AWAY.

Woah-oh,
I never thought I would see you again,
but now you're standing there,
staring back at me.

Isn't it funny how we both turned out?
Isn't it funny how we both turned out?

The sun and stars don't shine as bright as you.

Woah-oh,
I never thought I would see you again,
but now you're standing there,
staring back at me.
You're on my mind all of the time,
you are the star in my night sky.

You're on my mind all of the time,
you are the star in my night sky.

x6

Woah-oh
WOAH,
I never thought I would see you again,
but now you're standing there.

You're standing there.

You're on my mind all of the time,
you are the star in my night sky.
Track Name: Amity Island
I'm a waste,
at least that's what they would say.
Everytime I try,
to talk my way out of this.
I'm through letting these problems get,
the best of me.
In the end,
it's just the worst kind of empathy.

The first words spoke,
were the last words written in a book,
that I haven't burned yet.

Everytime we try,
to make it through the night,
we only end up,
back at light skies.
LIGHT SKIES.
You're losing this fight,
but you're already,
lost inside,
and I,
don't mind it.

You're a disgrace,
to everything that I've done,
how could you expect that I would just move along.
Keep speaking in tongues,
my minds already made up,
and I'm moving on,
without you.

The first words spoke,
were the last words written in a book,
that I haven't burned yet.

I'm moving on,
I'm not looking back,
I have my mind made up,
and my heart in tact.
I'll turn the page,
and read my story,
the novel of what I have been.
I'm reading more,
the font of life,
you can't revise,
oh no,
this is life.
I wish I could,
cross out all that's been,
but don't you worry.
You were just a page.

Everytime we try,
to make it through the night.
We only end up back at light skies.
LIGHT SKIES.
You're losing this fight,
but you're already lost inside,
and I don't mind it.

Moving on.
Track Name: Try & Fail
You can bring me down.
Down straight to the bottom of the ground,
but once I get back up,
I gotta warn you cause I,
won't go back down.

I'm sick and tired of this.

This constant sicking feeling that I always get,
when you make me think that I'm not good enough,
and that I never will be.

Why do I still try to get you,
to see things from my own point of view,
for just once?

Wait I'm not through just yet,
I've got a few more things that I would like to say.
I'm not sorry for the feeling that I hurt,
because you hurt me everyday.

I'm sick and tired of this.

So here's a note,
that I wrote,
that you can't dismiss.
And this is the last time,
you'll ever hear from me again.

You can try & fail,
so I tried with you,
but you let me down.
You tore my heart in two.

Why do I still try to get you,
to see things from my own point of view for just once?
Why can't I tear out my own heart,
then bleed it out on the floor,
just to show you,
how you make me,

feel.

You can try & fail,
but never fail to try.

x6

You have to try & fail before you spread your wings and fly.

x2

You can try & fail,
so I tried with you,
but you let me down,
and you tore my heart in two.

Why do I still try to get you,
to see things from my own point of view for just once.
Why can't I tear out my own heart,
then bleed it out on the floor just to show you.

How you make me feel.

How you make me feel.
