A very special thanks to:

Maria Menzel for being official band mom and for the gang vocals.

Jonesy, Nick, Fire Ryan, & Jake of Third Time Lucky Rekords for taking a chance on a poor lil' ska band like us. Thanks for this magical experience.

The Fenton family for allowing us to regularly practice our instruments loudly in their basement for the past 4 years.

Everyone we've met/played for/booked us/stayed with on tour.

The Orr family for letting us hang in their basement and play video games for 2 months.

All of YOU for listening to and buying this album.

Survay Says! would like to dedicate this album to Dennis James Menzel Sr., a friend, father, and hero. Rest In Peace.

Track Name: Where We Exist
Let me be clear/
These songs are what I'm doing with my life/
And every note you hear/
Is a statement from this fucked up head of mine/
Every word that's spoken/
Is coming from a heart that's broken/
And my thoughts are always spinning out of control/

'Cause this is where we exist/
And you won't find us where the overlords have all control/
'Cause I refuse to sell my soul/
This is where we exist (get ready for this)/

Bring me the head of whoever said that ska is dead/
'Cause we got the heart to keep this going/
(we got the heart to keep this going)
And bring my the head of whoever said pop punk is dead/
'Cause we got the heart to keep this going/
(we got the heart to keep this going)

And you're the people I can't stand/
I'll plug and stomp out all these bands/
'til someone gives a fuck about this industry again/

'Cause this is where we exist/
And you won't find us where the overlords have all control/
'Cause I refuse to sell my soul/
This is where we exist (get ready for this)/
Track Name: The Netflix Song (Light Of Day)
I think I'd rather be alone tonight/
I think I'd rather sit back and see what Netflix has to say/
'Cause its better than waiting, better than debating how to fix all the problems you gave me/
I'd rather stay in tonight/
I've never been a big fan of the parties you throw anyway/
And it makes me feel useless, like I just can't do this and I know you won't be there to save me/
And they say time heals all wounds/
Well time better hurry the fuck up/

'Cause it has been way too long since I've seen the light of day/
It's been way too long since I've seen the light of day/
Now this blinding light just doesn't feel right/
I can't make this okay/
'Cause it has been way too long since I've seen the light of day/
And I can't make the world go away/

There's a thousand miles between the way things are and the way it should be/
And you and I know how good things could be/
But you still call me naive/
So I'd rather be alone tonight/
I think I'd rather sit back and watch a TV show/
'Cause you're about to see me go insane/

I may not even get off the couch today/
I'm fighting a never ending battle of making the thought of you go away/
But I can't for even a minute/
Maybe because we are so kindred/
So if you need me, I'll be sitting here all day/
Track Name: Hipster's Hipster (Your Ways Left Behind)
