I watch your camera eye… stare back at me I don’t know where you are, but I… know what you see And you’re wrong You’re all wrong And you’re wrong You’re all wrong I hear you justify your… broken policy I'm not sure what you want, but I sure know it hurts me And you’re wrong You’re all wrong You’re so wrong You’re all wrong I don’t know who you think you are But I know what you’re after It’s all wrong

Who has she seen? And where has she been? She knows what she knows and she knows what to do, she knows what to do, what she’s doing to me I can get by With her shiver and sigh But she does what she does, and when she’s done what she’s done, until she’s all done with you, she’s all done with me She wants something new So what should I do? She wants what she wants until she gets what she wants, and then she wants something else that could never be me… that could never be me… Stealing a glance Just a moment of chance She looks really good when she looks like she should and now she’s looking around, but is she looking for me... is she looking for me? I can get by Until I look in her eyes But she knows what she knows and she knows what to do, she knows what to do, it's what she’s doing to me… What is she doing to me? She knows, she knows you can’t get by without her But she always runs, she always runs… away A prayer for her touch When the feeling’s too much I’ll make myself sick While I’m waiting around While I’m waiting for her

She’s got soul and, ooh, she’s got some more and She never gives it away She don’t see you, no, she never needs you; She doesn’t care what you say Oh, She’s got something, ooh she’s got something… That’ll blow you away Just before you see her you’ll know she’s getting nearer… You're gonna be her prey She gives love and, ooh, it’s not enough… But it’s enough to stay She’ll let you in, but, no, you’ll never win She’s gonna make you pay So you start running, ooh you keep on running, You keep on running away But something in the mirror keeps on getting clearer; you just can’t escape

Driving around on empty roads There no place left to be, and nowhere left to go Runway lights down Colony Drive Passing by your house; do you even know I'm alive? But you're gone... Sometimes I can't let it go Sometimes I just really need to let you know Sometimes I can't let it go Sometimes I just really need to let you know Waiting around for something to do There's nothing here for me and nothing here for you I just can't wait to get away But if you asked me to, you know that I would stay But you're gone... You’re gone… Sometimes I can't let it go Sometimes I just really need to let you know Sometimes I can't let it go Sometimes I just really need to let you know Sometimes I can't let it go Sometimes I just really need to let you know Sometimes I can't let it go Sometimes I just really need to let you know Sometimes I can't let it go Sometimes I just really need to let you know Sometimes I can't let it go Sometimes I just really need to let you know

about

This project commenced recording at the end of 2016 as this current world devolution began in earnest. Lead single "Wrong" is a simple yet scathing indictment of the surveillance state and a government that, even then, did not speak for the people, and has only worsened in that regard over the ensuing years.

The rest of the songs pulse with an energy fueled by discontent and disillusionment of a more romantic nature, recalling the band's original approach, driven by a hammering rhythm section featuring Tony Zuniga (drums) and Jasun Hadaway (bass) as nuanced, strong, and interesting as the guitar leads, which wind in and around each other in a delicate but clamorous dance, four guitarists dueling through a changing of the guard in the band, with long time lead player Scott Kennedy ceding to new additions Sharim Johnson and Claire Tucker, with band founder and primary front person Jim Biggs filling in the rest of the fuzzy pieces..

All three of the remaining songs on this four song set speak to themes of love, lust and longing. "Waiting for Her" a paean to that connection we've all just missed, time and again while "She" speaks directly to the allure of that very thing, especially when the object of devotion is a strong, and strong-willed, individual with their own drives and desires. The closing title track is the loudest expression of suburban ennui since the early days of punk and it's occasional focus on Boredom (bah-dum bah-dum).

The initial recording session for this project was the product of a fan-favorite selection during the Seattle record label festival Channel Fest, with Neon Sigh awarded best label by voters and given studio time generously donated by Electrokitty Sound Studio and Channel Fest. The Colony Drive EP features the brilliant results.
