about

During our first tour, we stopped by Bad Racket Studios in Cleveland to shoot a live video for waves... We clicked so well with James that he decided to let us record all that we were able to the following day before leaving for our next show. So with a couple hours to spare, we set up our gear, pressed record, and just went to it.
All of these songs were recorded live, which was just too ideal of an opportunity, because this is the most raw and sincere trunkweed experience available online to-date.
While most of these songs do appear on "Days of Haze', the entirety of that album was written and performed separately from the entity that has become and is, trunkweed. Sitting in my apartment gave me too much freedom to add sounds and instruments to the mix that are unnatural to our persona. This album evokes the same feelings, but in an entirely new light; we are, indeed, a live band and these songs are a refreshing assurance that we are real.

We are charging in hopes of raising money to fund a grand full length this spring. If you really refuse to pay or just are that broke, email us and we'll send a code.

Track Name: on your own
Lesson learned that I mean much less than all the problems lurking in your head and though they didn't always make much sense, I guess you're better off on your own.

Waking up in this dream is endless, when you're fighting just to keep your senses. Losing hope, hoping you're not losing - all your efforts spent on building feelings.

All alone, wondering if you're at home but I could never know because this struggle's enough to keep me on my own.

Struggling to find the words to say, that I've seen better days.
All these songs I write, their words are true and I write them all for you.

Sleeping in always feeling tired - pray to God that these thoughts expire - dazed when I ran away from dealing with my world as it his the ceiling.

You and I - we will always be true - but it won't last if you don't let me help you - even though we exist in the bedroom - I've been real and I hope you have too.
Track Name: youth society
Sitting at home, restless, all alone, waiting for the sun to reach out from the sky - arise - please wake me up inside; I'm tired of just getting by.

Broke and stoned, staring at your phone, is an awful way to spend your time so open up your mind and try and try to recognize how you ever got this blind.

I believe there's much more to be than settled at eighteen.
Breath, then death, is drilled into our heads - this life's a life at best.

When you're young, everything seems fun but soon enough it's clear to see that all the days spent drifting away - in the summer sun - are lost and gone.

The time is now for us to make a sound - or lose ourselves to normalcy because the day is near, when the world will here:

that this is now - the youth's society.

I'm tired lalalalalalalalala
Track Name: chumped
I am moving on - from this world I've hated for so long - but now I'm stuck inside these stupid songs and is it wrong to feel so strong when all my friends are gone.

Tell me, what's the point in feeling hopelessly so empty when you're not alone?

fuck it, let's just alllll get stoneeedddd.

In my mind, it seems that I am far behind - everything - chase after all those lies when I'm not blinded by those eyes then I know you will not be mine.

Tell me, what's the point in feeling hopelessly so empty when you're not alone?
Fuck this place, it's filled with so much hate and I don't want to ever see your face again.

Acid at Sixteen 04:30



When I was just sixteen it was clear to me, that I had lived to see - all the functions of a fantasy - that - only existed, in my sleep.

Now, after wasting away all the sorry days when I forgot to play; the role of someone, who never grew old and never gave up on the stories they told.

Each day: I'll fade farther away ...

As a kid, life felt so sweet - but - I was quarantined.
Acid at sixteen had given me the liberty, of feeling free, if only in my dreams.

Growing up has served: to fuck all the youth out of love and to retract the thoughts of those, who never looked back to question whether their lives were fact.

Each day: I'll fade farther away . . . .
Track Name: days of haze
Yesterday feels so far away
but that's okay if I'm still sane.
All those days, spent stuck in a haze,
made me feel okay in my own pain.

Spinning in sound - away and around - from my old town.
Never looking back just hoping to keep on track.
Finding frames in time to recollect and rebuild senses from the mind that only made me blind.
Days of haze have always grounded life in grace.

There are times when you must decide
whether things are fine or in decline.
If fading away into a distant state
makes you feel okay, then daze for days.
Track Name: waves... wait what?
Sitting at the beach - watching as the waves crash at my feet - while I imagine life's asleep - but this trip only lasts the week.

So I will run away again - from all my problems and pretend - that I've been honest - it depends - whether I'm alone or with my friends.

How can you truly know yourself - when you're never real around someone else - the lies you've told are not unknown - and you'll be sorry when you're old - but you can still grow.

Lying in the wake of an altered world which you create - won't feel at first like a mistake but I promise you that it is fake.
Track Name: death after life
Does it ever feel like nothing's real when, when your thoughts leave you chained into your bed?
Don't you wish that you could - understand a single thought inside your head?
We are all so tired, oh so tired of dishonesty, can't you see; that we have never lived like we were free?

~ Does it seem like you will never feel ok? ~
~ Like when you wake up dying every fucking day ~
~ So let's pretend that in this life we've made some friends ~
~ Because together - we will all die in the end. ~

I am growing empty - while my thoughts are full of shaking, my dreams.
Maybe I need rearranging, changing, I don't wanna feel so crazy, lately; so lazy, at least I'm not insane. I'm afraid.

(I'll be dead again)
