Lyrics

It seems no ones left no more
They all went to go drown upon your shore
In a sea of sirens and call
With Odysseus, he don’t know his heart can’t find his home
So he clung to the black sheep again
He forgot the color of his pale white skin
Spotted by demons of sorts
But the only demons are the ones you contort

Ohhhh

This is the young ones war
Combatting the lives to which we were born
Making the old guard fall
To every lie to which we recall
Been played for the fool once more
You splattered that blood across your door
That spirit in the wind
I hope it skips your first born my friend

Ohhhh

We savages are, to late to learn and to young to die
We savages are, scratchin at the skin just to make it raw
We savages are, nothing like our fathers were before us
We savages are, turning our lives right into wars

And it’s a shame, shame, shame
We had to change, change, change, our ways

The earth moves fast when you’re not watching
You think it’s such a wonder
I’m wondering what’s wondering you
You lose yourself to it
I’m finding that you’re finding everything so far from the truth

Get away, get away, get away
I was trying to escape

I’m slowly starting to believe
Everything your saying is not so far from a dream
I couldn’t call it freedom
But I’m slowly finding out that these things ain’t random

So hold on tight to me
And darling set me free
And everything will be brilliant

You wore your heart on your sleeve kid
Everything was yours for your abandon
Easy come easy go I guess
But it all comes at a cost

Get away, get away, get away
I was trying to escape
Just to wind up right back at you

So I guess what I’m trying to say
With complete clarity
Is darling will you stay with me
For the night, for our life

Darling you look so rough round the edges
So close to falling apart
You think this world gives two cents about you
You’re just an average heart

Darling you see the world through your glasses
So far from rosy at all
I just want to break through your defenses
Sweetly caress your soul

Carry on, carry on
You said you needed nothing at all
And we’re chomping at the bit just to fall
In love with the wrong

Darling you seem so sick from your suffering
Your smile bears it all
And your bluffing with the Jack of diamonds
But he’s got a crooked soul
And I don’t want nothing to do with the dark side of your heart
I just want to break on through to the light, is that all right?

Carry on, carry on
You said you needed nothing at all
And we’re chomping at the bit just to fall
In love with the wrong

So face it girl the darkness consumes us
Like were helpless to its disease
And I just want to catch you when you fall
To the sickness that it breathes
I won’t hold nothing against you
If you just hold yourself against me
And together we could pray for the light of day

Carry on, carry on
You said you needed nothing at all
And we’re chomping at the bit just to fall
In love with the wrong

We were lost
We couldn’t find our home
And you said
I owned your soul

We were cast out in the dark
To chase the shooting sparks
With no direction home
A fickle twisted fate
Like the lines upon our face
We were carved into this stone
And forever we will roam

We were lost
We couldn’t find our home
And you said
I owned your soul

Do you call my bluff
With your heart so full of trust
Of things you’ll never know
As we lie awake in bed
With the muzzles to our heads
Pull the trigger take me home

We were lost
We couldn’t find our home
And you said
I owned your soul

We are running through this field wide open
We are chasing down our dreams even if they’re broken

We were lost
We couldn’t find our home
And you said
I owned your soul

Said you’re making a big move out of town
You said it’s for the better
Cause the grass is always green when you can’t see it
And trees don’t break hearts when you can’t hear them
Said you’re moving out to California
Where your dreams reside and what God planned for you
I was looking to see the left coast too
Got too many right coast blues

Somehow we remain uncollided

So darling lay down in the back seat
And forget about your enemies
Forget about your trespasses
As I grow into my fathers form
And you grow into your mother’s wounded heart
She wished you had just stayed at school
Forgot about your dreams early on
At least you’d be safe at home
But you and I know you were dreaming bigger things than she’d ever know

Somehow we remain uncollided

We’re racing down the road
Together yet so alone
In the caves of our mind
Slaves to our fate and time
You think you’re so brave
I can help you but you’ll be hard to save
And I just want to crash into you

Somehow we remain uncollided

This ain’t no dust land fairytale
It’s a spot in the road where dreams go to die
I hope I make it through, see you on the other side
And collide

With the flicker of a light
And the drops of blood on the ground
They pound on your chest
Trying for a pulse, for a sound
A sweet phosphoresce
Set free your soul from within
With a hand to the sky
I knew that this was not the end

Cause you and I are the same
We live and die by our name

We met a midst the glory
Of our misguided youth
Now I vow to tell your story
With unwavering truth
Cause you were my best friend
My goddamn hero
But now flowers take your place
On this ground so hallowed

But I know your spirit moves
Like the wind in the trees on a cold afternoon
In the stories of the friends that you once knew

We were once two young wolves
Howling loud at the moon
Wild and free, so naive
Forever young we would be
Now I spread your ashes in the ocean
But it don't deserve you, nothing does
Not God Himself or Jesus Christ
Our bond is blood, our love is might

Cause you and I are the same
We live and die by our name
This humbled flesh our blood and vein
Are the Earths to reclaim
But all that's released will remain

But I know your spirit moves
I know your spirits moves
Like the wind in the trees on a cold afternoon
In the stories of the friends that you once knew
If they loved you like I loved you then they're my friends too
And I know your spirit moves

I heard my name called out in the dark
And fire always follows the spark
So I followed close behind my hands
Disappearing in no light

I heard you called once more
And I think I felt assured
But I knew nothing of the truth
As I travelled through the fear between me and you

Oh, I’m not scared no more
Cause I see the light shining through
It’s shining right out of you

I’m my mother’s first son
And the last of the cursed ones
But I hold my head in pride
For my time is still yet to come

Oh, I’m not scared no more
Cause I see the light shining through
It’s shining right out of you

If you ain’t afraid to die
Then ask yourself why
You’re not cherishing the life that you’re living
Cause I know this ain’t heaven
But there’s some things I haven’t done yet
So God just give me a minute

Oh, I’m not scared no more
Cause I see the light shining through
It’s shining right out of you

Sticks and stones love
Your words will never hurt
So break my bones love
With all the strength you have
Just crack me open
Let my love for you spill out
Just like an ocean

You said that this could be forever love
You said that we could be forever us
You and I darling
We seem so elegant at times
But you and I darling
We seem the violent type
And those three damn words you said
I and you with hate in between them
I know you really didn’t mean it like that
It’s just the heat of the moment

Sticks and stones love
Your words will never hurt
So break my bones love
With all the strength you have
Just crack me open
Let my love for you spill out
Just like an ocean

You said that nothing’s gonna break this up
You said that nothing’s gonna break this trust
But you and I darling
We seem so insecure at times
And our love and trust
It feels like a raging war
And you had the upper hand
With the crash of a pint glass against my head
I know you really hadn’t planned it like that
It’s just the heat of the moment

Sticks and stones love
Your words will never hurt
So break my bones love
With all the strength you have
Just crack me open
Let my love for you spill out
Just like an ocean
So I know the things we think we feel
Are real and tangible
And your heart
Is mine and you don’t feel no need to wander

So break my bones love
So break my bones love
Sticks and Stones love
So break my bones love

I was just a young man starving
Starving for some sort of truth
You seemed to be starving faster
Than anyone else I knew
And I said there’s got to be a reason
Maybe some sort of clue
That out here on this endless skyway
All I’m seeing is you

But you said there’s nothing in this world called love
Just uncompassionate wolves in sheep’s clothes
Oh well darling if that’s true
You won’t mind me howlin’ at you

Can I please have my eyes back baby
Cause I can’t seemed to take them off you
Can I please have my heart back baby
Oh is your trampling through

I learned by the grace of my father
How a man comes to
Face the odds with great composure
And aim for true virtue
You learned by the eyes of your mother
How to accept a man
Not by what he’s made of
But how well he holds your hand

But you said there’s nothing in this world called love
Just uncompassionate wolves in sheep’s clothes
Oh well darling if that’s true
You won’t mind me howlin’ at you

Can I please have my eyes back baby
Cause I can’t seemed to take them off you
Can I please have my heart back baby
Oh is your trampling through

Your seeing in me the things you most fear in yourself
And your pushing me away like I’m bad for your health
Cause nothing in your life has said this could be different
But I could take away your pain, I could be your savior in the rain

But you said there’s nothing in this world called love
Just uncompassionate wolves in sheep’s clothes
Oh well darling if that’s true
You won’t mind me howlin’ at you

Can I please have my eyes back baby
Cause I can’t seemed to take them off you
Can I please have my heart back baby
Oh is your trampling through

I know there’s several ways
A man can go to disarray
But either way, we’ll be okay

And I know
Just how it feels to know that your alone
Deep inside the chambers of my heart
I feel it start
The rush of blood, the deafening wind
The cutting sand against your skin
And it begins

Now I know
How it feels to have your health but no home
Questioning your faith in God above
And it’s all you got
The rush of blood, the deafening wind
The cutting sand against your skin
The boardwalk falls, it’s sinking in
The memories of a thousand summers die with it
And so it ends

But either way, we’ll be ok

Bio

Philadelphia natives, Wild Rompit, are four friends from the east coast that are telling the stories of their lives as they live them with their upcoming release Spirit Moves (available August 27th). Hitting the music scene in 2011 with the EP Brotherhood, Wild Rompit established themselves as a dominant force in Philadelphia’s college music scene. Spirit Moves marks the next phase of their musical maturity and hones in on their gritty indie rock mentality, blending the polished aesthetic of mainstream rock with the soul and emotion of blues and folk, all of which contributing to a sound that is Wild Rompit.


Consisting of Blair Ollendorf (vocals and guitar), Brandon Bost (guitar), Paul Impellizeri (bass), and Sean Donaghy (drums), the band entered this new project with a clear mind and years of creative maturity that invokes the concepts of songs that not only pleases the aesthetic needs of the listener but also resonates with people’s lives. “The songs off this album are the strongest that I’ve ever written because they build off my experience in life as a whole,” reflects Ollendorf. “It took two years to write this record, during which I was studying music as a structure, listening to artists I’m inspired by and breaking down the structure of their songs to formulate what songwriters are doing and why.”


Spirit Moves is a reflection of the 20-something mentality that dives into the generational aspects of taking control of one’s life and the struggles of the generation before. Culminating the meeting of numerous paths in life into a singular intersection, Spirit Moves comments on the human spirit as an entity – defining how a person affects everyone around them and how their life and death is a direct inspiration of how friends and family will remember and memorialize them. “Spirituality is a mystery to everyone, when you have someone close to you that dies, it makes you reflect on your own life and how you’ve lived and treated others,” notes Ollendorf.


Spending 6 months to record this record was a breathe of fresh air for guitarist and producer Brandon Bost. “It was easier to find what we wanted our sound to be like because we knew what we liked from other bands,” Bost states. “Most of what you hear on the record is a result of patience and attention to detail, rather than rushing to meet a deadline. ”Spirit Moves was much more a reflective look inside the lives of the band and as a result, the songs themselves tell the stories of heartache, pain, regrowth, and the journeys that go along with them.


“Spirit Moves is our exploration into deeper territories, bringing Wild Rompit, as a brotherhood, closer together. This record is a culmination of two years of work and our attempt to express where we are in our lives. Raw and honest, Spirit Moves is our effort to make a lasting impact on our fans, new and old.”

Lyrics

Wild Rompit is an indie/folk/rock group that consists of four Jersey boys that met at Drexel University in February of 2010. Since then the four friends have been moving quickly, diving deep into the Philly art scene playing all over the tri-state area and becoming recognized as a talented up and coming band. Wild Rompit’s sophomore release Brotherhood marks a great achievement in the bands growth. Their raw energy and homegrown sound have reached new heights in their cohesive and polished EP. From start to finish the songs are laced with lyrics of honest portrayals of self-discovery. “You can learn a lot about yourself through your relationships with the people around you,” explains Blair. Brotherhood through and through is about the coming of age, of both the characters in its stories and Wild Rompit themselves. On stage the band brings an almost animalistic, passionate energy to every performance. Lead singer Blair Ollendorf’s edgy voice contrasts with the melodic sounds and rhythms provided by Brandon Bost, Paul Impellizeri, and Sean Huber. “The first thing I noticed about this group was their instant likeability. People were coming to me at clubs and saying, ‘Who are these guys? I really like what they’re doing.’ And the reason that’s happening is because the band really has a genuine, fresh sound. They also have the ability to squeeze honest emotion out of their performance, demonstrating that nothing phony is going on, and the audience picks up on that fast.” – John Pfeifer, The Aquarian Weekly During the summer of 2010, the band went on a tour through colleges and clubs in the Northeast, playing such prestigious venues as The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, Two Boots in Bridgeport, World Café Live in Philadelphia and National Underground in NYC. “Stampede,” which The Aquarian Weekly calls “a riveting project,” is free to listeners on the band’s website, www.WildRompit.BandCamp.com. “If you are a music lover that demands no-nonsense rock and roll that delivers message and mystery time after time, then Wild Rompit is worth a listen,” says Pfeifer. Though Wild Rompit takes pride in their EP, it’s clear that their real stampede is still to come.
