about

Sound of a Smirk New York

A four-piece band hailing from New York, Sound of a Smirk uses quiet croons, harsh yells and pungent lyrics mixed with smooth rhythm chords to display honest songwriting. Adding the quick-handed, pulsing, and pounding drum beats to the soaring and sometimes cutting leads to the filling and grooving bass, you can feel yourself sink into a sonic landscape coated in whole-hearted vocals. ... more

Track Name: State Speed Limit
You were driving me crazy
In all the best ways, my heart pumped octane
Fill my throat with gasoline
And burn my body to nothing

Flashing lights and hazy dreams
I need to stop now, I need to scream
But I can't get enough of you
I won't let go, I won't let through.

You were shifting my head swiftly
pump this substance sonically
Fill my bones with oil blood
and run my body til I can't get up

Flashing lights and hazy dreams
I need to stop now, I need to scream
But I can't get enough of you
I won't let go, I won't let through.

Calm me down and cool me off
My lungs are burnt with this gasping cough
I need your hands, I need your tongue
Calm me down and cool me off
Track Name: SonSet
Mother, can you hear me from the bottom of this ocean?
Father, Can you hear me from the top of this cliff?
Can you love me anymore, even though you do not know me?
Can you love me anymore even though you do not know, the son you have?

Blood is blood
Pain is pain
I would understand
If you want me to change my name

I've been burying myself for so long now
I can feel the dirt caking in between my teeth
I've been burying myself for so long now
The skeletons are alive and they are coming out

Blood is blood
Pain is pain
I would understand
If you want me to change my name

Mother, can you hear me as I drown at the bottom of this ocean?
Father, can you hear me as I yell, falling from the top of this cliff?
Can you love me anymore?
Can you love me any less?
