about

"Unlike so many bands who make a mess by rushing every musical idea they've ever had into a debut album, Terriers find a sophisticated harmony on UAS, chiseling out a delightful identity all their own." - Gene Wagendorf III, Windy City Rock

"Working with producer Dan Duszynski (Gold Motel, Any Kind), Terriers have created an album which is impossible to peg down in one genre and exceeds expectations." - Josh Terzino, Music. Defined.

Track Name: I Don't Care If the Sun Is Shining
This may be asking
For much too much
In mixed expressions
And double dutch

All I want is for you to see
That I don't care if the sun is shining
Please, believe me

I could tell you I'm sorry
But it wouldn't change a thing
I'm all out of stories
And I'm tired of lying

All I want is for you to see
That I don't care if the sun is shining
Please, believe me
I don't care if you can't see me
Please

After all I've done to you now
Wouldn't blame you if you run

And I don't care if the sun is shining
Please, believe me
Track Name: New York
New York
Though I guess I knew you fine
You’ve been running ‘round my mind
For quite some time now

Baby
All those sleepless nights I had
I had never felt so bad
Until you called me

New York City
Won’t you pity me?
For I am just a stranger
Passing blindly through these streets

Inshore
I was waiting patiently
But you never took the time
To welcome me

Maybe
It was I who made this fault
And the traffic halt
That fell into the shoreline

New York City
Won’t you pity me?
For I am just a stranger
Passing blindly through these streets

It’s getting a little too late
To make up your mind
You’ve either got to pick me up
Or leave me behind

New York
I was once humbled by your greatness
But now enlightened by the lateness
In your answer

Baby
I have rid you for the better
For Chicago or whoever
I may find

New York City
Won’t you pity me?
For I am just a stranger
Passing blindly through these streets
Track Name: Sad Situation
I’m through thinking ‘bout my sad situation
I’ve been worrying for far too long
I’ve got nothing but high expectations
I can’t stand it when you say I’m wrong

So is this what we’re coming to?
You play the angel and I’ll be your fool

So what are you sorry for?
You never meant to break my heart
Did you expect my faith
To shake so easily when you told me
I was not the one?

Got a handle on my mad desperation
Paranoia to a certain degree
No more sitting in a state of frustration
I thought all my friends were lying to me

And I don’t know if you were true
But you sure as hell gave me plenty of proof

So what are you sorry for?
You only meant to break my fall
Were you at all surprised
When I realized that it was wrong
And I was not the one?

Solved my problem with a simple subtraction
Put my worries and my fears to rest
All I’m left with is a clean, simple fraction
Not quite complete but I could pass the test

Who am I then
The fool you always knew?
Passing time
And I loved you, too
Track Name: Fall in Love
Fall in love
Every time I fall in love I miss the mark
I fall for the wrong girl and end up in the dark
Always fleeing far from my own bleeding heart
So afraid to face the question 'will she stay,
or leave to calm a hunger I can not allay?'
Too sick to care or even dare to follow

Just like a flower in the sun's rays
I bend over backwards just to meet your gaze

Not enough
It's not enough to go on feeling only fine
To be the punctuation on that bottom line
To end it almost every time and still get hurt
Still betrayed and still downhearted
Oh, and how
Knowing all the while I started all this doubt
The sword in my own back and my own downfall

Pick me up and treat me kindly
Hold me close and love me blindly

Just like a flower in the sun's rays
I bend over backwards just to meet your gaze
Track Name: You Belong to Me
Can I get a clear idea
Of just what you mean?
'Cause though you know the lines you can't see
What's in between
I know you got the lingo down
But step back a bit
You've either gotta come back around
Or get up on it

I'm sick of this lowdown belligerence
Just a waste of my time
All this push and pull just fuels my indifference
Don't be a fool
You belong to me

Will you get a second chance
Or counter bid?
Only 'cause it took so long
To keep your secrets hid
Baby I'm a stranger
Don't let me in
Treat me like an enemy
Not like a friend

I'm tired of your shameless fallaciousness
Just a show for yourself
All this strain and toil to speed your deliverance
Don't be a fool
You belong to me
Track Name: Please!
I can hear you
But I cannot see you
I’m waiting for that ringing to rest

I could hold you
But I cannot love you
Or take my old heart to task

Oh, the days are passing me slowly
I’m afraid of just being lonely
Help me, please!

And I know you
But I should forget you
If I feel you starting to fall

But I could never
Let that happen
Not if ever I knew you at all

Oh, the days are passing me slowly
I’m afraid of just being lonely
Help me, please!

Oh, so you changed your mind too
Well, I don’t know if I can blame you
Track Name: Like I Always Do
It was painless
He made arrangements
With his family back home

He’ll be leaving
But I won’t be grieving
I’ll just be all alone

And I don’t know how you do what you do
Love me one day, the next I’m your fool
But I just had to see this through
Like I always do

Grab my passport
Head to the airport
Where my future awaits

I don’t know
Just where I’ll be going
When I get through the gates

Two as one, now two alone
And I don’t know where
My poor heart has flown

Probably south, so on I go
To find it
Where?

God only knows

And I don’t know how you do what you do
Love me one day, the next I’m your fool
But I just had to see this through
Like I always do
Track Name: Probability Theory
I don't expect you to notice
All of my blinking alarms
This is just me at my lowest
But I mean no harm

I don't know that much about you
I don't even know your first name
I'd have to be a good gumshoe
To be that far in the game

And unsure
But in turn
I'll come running when she says the word

I wouldn't call myself charming
I've got a lot left to learn
But I'm not the worst on this farm team
And I still get spurned

I sit at my chair with my coffee
I play at my words and my songs
Make up like I am who I want to be
And I still get it all wrong

But she just smiles
And says neat
And I'm suddenly almost complete

I wish I was more easy going
But I haven't been cured of the hex
And I have no basis for knowing
What might happen next

I could concede and go all in
It might not even be all that bad
I've got a feeling I'm falling
And I may already have

Should I apologize
(Not a day since in all of my life have I been so aware of the war without fighting it)
For exploits that I've enjoyed
(Holding nothing against it and feeling the joy)
When I have caught myself
(And the days have gone by with the nights and I catch my tongue holding it still but not biting it)
Staring into the void
(And I stare with a spiteful eye into the void)

I guess I'll count myself lucky
For what little I do comprehend
Keep my chin up and stay plucky
Cause I don't want it to end
