The New Varsity Claremont, California

Reincarnating an early mellenia rock sound; The New Varsity has impacted the inland empire with an instantly memorable, emo- laced, pop punk product. Old enough to be considered retro, but modernized to acceptability. The New Varsity strives to carry on the torch once held by the likes of Blink 182, Jimmy Eat World, Fall Out Boy, Etc and resurface the love for a timeless scene that we all remember. ... more

Track Name: Introduction
I'm getting sick of waking up on my bedroom floor
This is a feeling that I just can't cope with anymore
I had this revelation that my mind has got the best of me
In the worst way

Watch me unravel like the thread you'd find so comforting
Isn't it obvious that I am the one who's lost everything
And now I'm the happiest that I could ever say.
My life's a lock and you're the wrong key.
Track Name: Waiting Rom
I'm letting go of any hope I ever had of doing right by you
There's something in the way, and now I
Just can't handle all the shit you put me through.
This is the last time

The last time that I will wait for you
(This is the last time I'll) Wait for you

It seems I lost my heart a long time ago, and it shows
When all the things I'd ever love have moved on.
And it throws me to the ground, it knocks me out
So I tell myself that this will be the last time

The last time that I will wait for you
(this is the last time I'll) Wait for you

Don't you let me hear you say that this would last forever.
We both know that all good things end, better late than never
Look around you, now I know that you can do much better.
Just let me say this, this is the last time
Track Name: We're Not Real Friends
Where the hell did everybody go, I guess I should have known
that you were the first one to look out for yourself, and now you're leaving me behind.
Well I thought that I knew what it takes to survive, and stay alive
But your intentions were always blinded with selfish pride

It's not the first time that you took your own side
And now you're running out of people to leave behind

I Thought that we were friends, but I never thought that this would happen
I never thought that the picture that we painted was just a lie
And these nights were wasted, and these bottles tasted
Bitter and unhealthy I'm not ashamed to say I fought this for too long.

You never cared to come back home, no you never gave a shit where you had come from
Your're just another bad example the kids can depend on.
And you're lying to yourself (lying to yourself)
When you told everyone that you're just a nice guy, you're just another fake prick

I Thought that we were friends, but I never thought that this would happen
I never thought that the picture that we painted was just a lie
And these nights were wasted, and these bottles tasted
Bitter and unhealthy I'm not ashamed to say I fought this for too long.

You want a lesson, well this one's your exit

I should have asked for less, but what did you expect. We both know what would come from this mess.
If our friendship was your test, then what's the score that you think you would get?
Well I bet you'd think you're perfect.

I thought that we were friends, but I never thought that this would happen.
I never thought that, we would end up quite like this
Track Name: Midwest Love Affair
Feeling sort of empty, like my best days are now behind me.
I never thought I'd go down in flames, but now I can't see the road before me.
My tired feet are all that I have to stand on now.
My first impression always left you second guessing
Why'd you come to be here, you could be the better man
I just had to say this, hide your face but don't despair
I'm a waste of time but I'm trying to hide the mess I am inside
(I cut you, I cut you out)
Now at the core of my design, you'll find.

You wish that I would disappear, and I can't blame you, but I'm still here.
And I just wanted you to know
That sometimes I wish I was born in the midwest, so that my words weren't meaningless
Well it's better off this way, to be lonely.

Weary eyes have fallen asleep, but my body will creep through the dark night.
Looking for the first light of the sunrise to show me something.
Like medication, but not the kind in plastic bottles
More like the kind you'd find in an empty rest stop stall
When there's no one to call will you fall prey to your demons

My bed's just a place that I've come to fear
(No rest for the weary, no sleep for the blind)
When the lights go out, ya it's just as hard to find

You wish that I would disappear, and I can't blame you, but I'm still here.
And I just wanted you to know
That sometimes I wish I was born in the midwest, so that my words weren't meaningless
Well it's better off this way, to be lonely.

Did you miss me, cuz I never heard you scream my name in vane.
Well I guess there's a part of me still missing, I never thought I'd change

When it all comes down to this, I failed to mention.
I'll never know what kind of man I ought to be.
I'm still on the search, I'm looking for the best part of me

You wish that I would disappear, and I can't blame you, but I'm still here.
And I just wanted you to know
That sometimes I wish I was born in the midwest, so that my words weren't meaningless
Well it's better off this way, to be lonely.
Track Name: Down In The Count
Something tells me that I should be a little farther in my life,
it's like they're never fully satisfied unless I'm making all their choices just so I survive.
I can't help that I want more. It's never too late, so I'm not waiting for the right time
(it's like you're casting your last line) I'm not making the safe bet this time.

I can't tell where I went wrong.
the choices you made have you too far gone
the tick of the clock is about to go off like a time bomb
It's getting ready to blow.
I can't tell where I went wrong
You've been running in circles for way too long
I need a minute to clear my head, but in a matter of seconds we're already dead.

they say what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger.
I say that I'm losing ground and that the distance is only getting longer.
Why can't I believe there's something better waiting for me?
You tend to forget that it's the little things that can hold the biggest meaning.

I get carried away with the small things.

I can't tell where I went wrong.
the choices you made have you too far gone
the tick of the clock is about to go off like a time bomb
It's getting ready to blow.
I can't tell where I went wrong
You've been running in circles for way too long
I need a minute to clear my head, but in a matter of seconds we're already dead.

I think that I lost my way a long time ago. It's 4am there's no one there on the other end of my phone.
Just an empty home, just a dial tone. You'll go, and I'll know that I can't stop from sinking.

bale, the waters getting cold, and I'm getting too old for this, the captain of my sinking ship,
well pray until there's nothing left to say. (My words have always gotten in the way)
from finding what I'm looking for, the happiness I crave.

I can't tell where I went wrong.
the choices you made have you too far gone
the tick of the clock is about to go off like a time bomb
It's getting ready to blow.
I can't tell where I went wrong
You've been running in circles for way too long
I need a minute to clear my head, but in a matter of seconds we're already dead.
Track Name: Rosemount
They say it never gets this cold in California, but I've still got miles left to go before I sleep

They say it never gets this cold in California
So why am I the one who's lost the only feeling I could find
The 71 is looking more and more like a graveyard everyday
And I'm six feet closer to the man that I never thought I'd be

It scares the shit out of me, how I feel so empty

But it's ok, when you see the best of me I'll be ready with the words that you need.
And that's ok, until then waste away behind your desk and pay
It's all that you'll have left anyway

I swore that I won't be the one who dies filled with regret
And this was supposed to be the part where you remember that
We used to share a common ground, and I'll keep that memory safe and sound.

But it's ok, when you see the best of me I'll be ready with the words that you need.
And that's ok, until then waste away behind your desk and pay
It's all that you'll have left anyway

I lost track of who you are a long time ago.
You're just a frame of your former self
And the cracks that you left behind are expanding.
Do you know if you're even there, or if you ever even cared at all
This is the part where you try to save face, but you know that it's to fucking late

You never knew that this would end, buried by your former friend
I can't stand, no I can't stand to see things go this way.
You're not the guy I knew back then, jesus won't this ever end.
I just think that we'll be better off on seperate ways
