about

Recorded in-between shows during the 2016/2017 run, "whatever." is the 4th release from 13-Monsters. It is as much a story of personal reflection as it is the general feeling and attitude of the world we live in today.
All inhibitions and guards were removed for this album. The rules were scrapped. The correct path was left and a decision was made to do exactly what the album name implies....whatever.
We hope you enjoy this album.
Whatever.

Track Name: The Bessemer Process
When you try to complicate.
Its getting hard to navigate.
Another move to contemplate.
And you won't negotiate.
It's all designed to Irritate.
And the sun it radiates.

I'm trying
I'm trying
I'm trying
Im trying

Over here,

I need a picture
I need some water
i need another piece of paper
I need attention
I need affection
I need to know if you're still with me.

I'm trying
I'm trying
You're lying
You're lying

Over here

I need a picture
I want some water
Stop laughing at me
Just say you love me.

I'm trying
I'm trying
You're lying
I'm dying

Over here

I'm trying
I'm trying
You're lying
I'm dying

Go away.
Track Name: Overlook
What's that voice
The one that tells me how to make a new choice
Time to think
I need a million years cuz Im on the brink
Go up the stairs
The overlook is where you finds out who cares
Look down below
The rocks and river tell your mind where to go

Oh yeah

Flying away
I need to take some time to think what to say
It's all gonna change
I never wanted things to be rearranged
It's all your fault
I never wanted any of this assault
Where is your book
I want the page you wrote on your overlook

Oh yeah

Where is your voice
The one that told you how to make a bad choice
Take a deep breath
I'll hang you over and Ill scare you to death
I'm not gona lose
The voice inside my head too me what to chose
Afraid of heights
There's not a single thing about this that's right

oh yeah


Whats that voice
The one that tells me how to make a new choice
Go up the stairs
The overlook is where you find out who cares
Look down below
The rocks and river tell your mind where to go
Take a deep breath
I'll hang you over and 'Ill scare you to death

oh yeah
Track Name: Drive
Why do I drive? Well I think that that's a very very interesting question
I think I drive a lot of times just to get away
Just to get away from everything and everyone and everything that's bothering you under the sun
Everything that's right and everything that's wrong. Maybe I just drive just to make another song
Who knows. Never really can tell. Sometimes you might be driving straight into heaven. Sometimes you might be driving straight into hell.
And there's always someone behind it. Really.
Always.
There's always someone who sent you on your way and made you get in that car and go away
It's crazy. It's always crazy.
It's always for some inexplicable reason, you know?
And nothing that anyone can say, or do, and nothing that can really help you.
Not anymore.
And you're too far gone.
You get in the car and you drive and you drive and you drive.
And then you drive some more.
Aimlessly just driving away and wasting gas.
And sometimes it's just what you have to do. I mean really think about it. You're sort of saving lives out there aren't you? I mean there's a lot of lives out there that need to be saved.
And by you just taking a driving your car and going away, who knows, you may have saved a whole bunch of people. And nobody will ever really know will they?
And no one will ever really understand that just because you got in your car and drove you may have saved someone... or everyone. You may have saved the entire world.
Just because you had a few minutes to just drive.
Chillout, calm down.
And think about whether that person is really worth the effort.
Whether any of it is worth the effort
And you may never know. No one will ever know.
All they see is a car that's passing by the hundred miles an hour.
And someone without a smile on their face behind the wheel.
In that screaming fast automobile.
I guess that's why I...
I guess that's why I drive.
I never really thought about it, but yeah...
I guess that's why I drive.
And I've been doing it for years .
Track Name: Water's Edge
You said
That'd you'd leave if I told you too
I know
That's not what I want you to do

You scream
You hold me while Im sleeping
This end
We never wanted this

You see
These things are always changing
I see
I need these things to stay the same

You said
You'd never leave me here
I said
I'd always wait for you
Everyone lies
I swore I'd never lie to you
You said
That we'd be fine

I know
You always tried
I know
You always tried
I know
You always tried
I know
You always tried
Track Name: Space Age Love Song
I saw your eyes
And you made me smile
For a little while
I was falling in love

I saw your eyes
And they touched my mind
Although it took a while
I was falling in love
I was falling in love

I saw your eyes (I saw your eyes, I saw your eyes)
And you made me cry (and you made me cry, and you made me cry)
And for a little while (a little while, a little while)
I was falling in love

I was falling in love
Falling in love
Falling in love
Falling in love
Falling in love
Track Name: I'm Sorry To Tell You
Hello?
Hello.
Im sorry to you
The people surrounding you are an audience to a circus side show
People that are your friends will not be your friends forever
You must know that everyone will break your heart
I know this hurts, but things are going to hurt all the time
I need to tell you, you'll lose the things that mean a lot to you
and people...you'll lose them too
No one will tell you, you're going to be tired all the time
You must know, there are people who want to see you fail
I'm sorry to tel you that every will leave
Your friends are temporary
You've been expected to take the wrong path
I need you to understand that happiness is an illusion
Please listen when I tell you, you can't really count on anyone
I need you to understand that everyone only wants to hear themselves
No one will stay forever
ou can't count on people when you need them
Please listen when I tell you, they're going to break your heart
They'll talk about you when you leave the room
Im sorry to tell you
The person you love may not love you
That person isn't good enough
You won't be able to stand much longer
When you get up you're going to get knocked down again
One more thing..
They can't kill you..
I won't let them.
