about

We Got This Austin, Texas

Working constantly to find a moderation between class and crazy, multi-instrumentalists, Nathan Crepeault and Anthony Ravelo, formed a musical duo to express the unique voice they have been seeking for years. Paying respects to the artists that inspire them, the blend of influence that fuels this project ranges from the eclectically electronic Autechre, to the indie-rock flare of Deerhoof. ... more

Track Name: Meanwhile, in the Bedroom
You should have been right
next to me as I woke up
But I took “No” for an answer
now my body is fucked

Cause between the lights
and the pavement home
I find myself in a place well known

How could I lie to me
the entire night up until now
well I guess you’ll figure it out somehow

I couldn’t get right
If you should me the way

It always feel light
but it’s subject to change

Cause the pulse is leading me
Down where you are
Too, god-damn far
I can’t stretch out
to where you are

So I’ll keep on runnin’ from this
Track Name: Convinced
I’m nervous
and not that strong
I can’t keep my hands from shaking
as I nod off

You’re Nervous
and not that strong
You can’t keep you hands from shaking
as you nod off

And when does it start?
My love
And when does it stop?
My love

I’ve convinced myself
I’ve Convinced myself

I have no say in the matter

I’m fighting myself not to fight you at all
I’m fighting myself not to fight you at all

I’m nervous
and not that strong
Don’t feed me words of encouragement
if they’re false

Your nervous
But so much Stronger
You don’t need any words of encouragement at all
Track Name: Cofey Was Here
How’d you know it was pain?
How’d you know it was pain
As you sold out?
(Don’t)

How’d you put it all together?
How’d you twist these ideas
until it’s solid fact?
(Touch)

And you’re living where it’s just too cold
And you think you’re so bold
And it’s getting old

And your thoughts are starting to mold
The objects, the attachment
I guess I just don’t get it

How’d you break it all apart?
How’d you break it all apart
so we’d back down?

Hey there you
on the ground
Hey there you
Are you around?
Hey there you
Don’t feel down

Yeah, I cut like a wound
And the bruises are blue
Just like your skies right now
(Touch)

And you’re living where it’s just too cold
And you think you’re so bold
And it’s getting old

And your thoughts are starting to mold
The objects the attachment
I guess I’ll never get it
Track Name: Sleeping for the Wrong Reasons
Jack up on thoughts
that leave you high and strung out
turn your back on me,
we’ll see who’s really full of doubt
I can’t find the switch that keeps me from

Drowning
In this sovereignty
It’s not easy

There you go
you got it now
doesn’t it feel like it’s
always been there

Cause it’s a long way
from the top down
and you’re feeling so high
feeling so high

Pull the cord
and watch the string
get tangled up
as it recoils

It’s got the type of greeting
that never ages or spoils
It makes me so sick how
much you know
to keep me constantly

Drowning
In this sovereignty
It’s not easy

There you go
you got it now
doesn’t it feel like it’s
always been there

Cause it’s a long way
from the top down
and I’m feeling so high
feeling so high

Don’t tell me you don’t care there’s nothing to be held
I’ve weathered every season of this fucking guilt
But why is everyone telling me to hold on?
Track Name: Faire de Beau Rêves
Aren’t we all
strung up by our gills
left out in the air to dry

Aren’t we all
craving something more
than all of this
sunlight

It takes a long while
to find my place
and everytime I wake
I don’t recall this face

Gold so brittle
It’ll never last
and every nuance
seems to add a little hurt to my past

Oh God I hope you never wake up to this sound again
It bites and tears at you until the very bitter end

It’ll be a long while
a long while
until I get my head on right

It’ll be a long while
a long while
until I start to talk again

Aren’t we all
strung up by our gills
left out in the air to dry

Aren’t we all
craving something more
than all of this
sunlight

It takes a long while
to find my place
and every time I wake
I don’t recall this face

Gold so brittle
It’ll never last
and every nuance
seems to add a little hurt to my past

Oh God I hope you never wake up to this sound again
It bites and tears at you until the very bitter end

It’ll be a long while
a long while
until I get my head on right

It’ll be a long while
a long while
until I start to talk again
Track Name: A College Education
You only drive abandoned cars
You only park when no one’s watching
You always leave within the hour
You always act like someone’s stalking

Through and through
When will you learn?
Through and through
When will you learn?

I write down to not forget
I light my last cigarette
You watch it burn from the tip
Until the filter gets its fix

Through and through
When will you learn?
Through and through
When will you learn?

Who’s gonna count all the stacks to be split?
Cash in your pocket, man, it’s so legit
No one’s around you, you ain’t never gettin’ caught
No one’s around you, you ain’t never gettin’ caught\

Who’s gonna count all the stacks to be split?
Cash in your pocket, man, it’s so legit
No one’s around you, you ain’t never gettin’ caught
No one’s around you, you ain’t never gettin’ caught

Don’t speak, don’t speak too soon

It takes time to remind myself
that I’m standing here forgetting everything that’s good

It’s behind the glass wall that I hide behind
When my world start to fall apart

I guess it’s all my fault
I fed on it for far too long
and now I’m hungry for more


It’s really all my fault
I fed on it far too long
And now I’m hungry for more

I’ll keep on dreaming
Keep on dreaming
Things couldn’t get much worse

I’ll keep on
I’ll keep on dreaming
Things couldn’t possibly get much worse than this
Track Name: Advisory (Salmon Codeine Cupcakes)
The Horizon:
Take off the mask now
and show everyone
who you are
it’s not that far

From a glasshouse inside you
in your head
shattered dead

There’s nothing left to say
about yourself
you knew this well

There’s nothing left to say
about yourself
you knew this well


The Village:
It’s there
to call your name
when i’m not here
to cause you stress

It’s there
to call your name
when i’m not here
to cause you stress


The Storm:
look out look out
you’re making me sick
can’t you feel the needles
on your neck

I love her
isn’t this love
torn apart by two doves


Mr./Mrs.Everyone Else:
but do they say what they hear?
do they mean what they think?
Are they feeling something more
or is it all just up to me?

Look at it this way
your face is all a blur

a lovely blur
a lovely blur
Track Name: An End to Affection
There’s a pain inside your eyes
and i can see it
oh I can feel it from a mile away

And there’s a pause in your pulse
that just wants to stay

Words are never
and we don’t to care
breaking habits left and right

I’m trying not to fall
I want to take it all
and give it back again

Maybe that’s the way
that somethings are

I tried my best to keep afloat
A little sharp stutter and we choke
This is the best you’d ever get
This is the best we’d ever have

Don’t let your hands out from me
It’s alright, it’s a rotten night

Don’t let your thoughts slip from me
It’s alright, it’s a terrible night

I hope you got it all on tape
I hope you got all your proof
I don’t this around me
I don’t need you

I hope you got it all on tape
I hope you got all your proof
I don’t this around me
I don’t need you

Cause it’s always in the air
feeling so close
feeling somewhere

Cause it’s always in the air
feeling so close
feeling somewhere

Don’t be so down
It’s not that bad
It’s not that bad
won’t you listen to me

Track Name: Pageant Show
Are you there?
Am I gone?
Wearing time
For a smile

Aren’t you stretched thin?
Why aren’t you listening?
Can’t you hear them salivating?

Sit back and stay awhile
I really think it’s gonna be one hell of a trial
You make me sick, you need some air
Show a little skin and see who cares

Ruthless aren’t they?
When you don’t play
Any of their rules
Or part of their games

They’re cannibalistic
I guess I just plain missed it
I think I been here once before

Sit back and stay awhile
I really think it’s gonna be one hell of a trial
You make me sick, you need some air
Show a little skin and see who cares

I feel so sick
But the judges love it
How much do I cost to them?

But there you were to me
Best personality
I think this is love

Be careful now
Watch your step
They’ll take any ounce of flesh
That they can get



Be careful now
Watch your step
They’ll take any ounce of flesh
That they can get
Track Name: Shock Itinerary
I’m losing sleep
I’ve picked it clean
Every thought I’ve had
has been devoured

Oh everyone has their own agenda
and no one seems to care
Oh everyone has their own agenda
hiding under the stairs

Burn the sun down
Burn the woods
Drag the lake until it’s got that curve

I am not afraid
Oh you will be
Oh you will be

I can’t compete
I can’t keep track
Everytime I try to place my mind on the thought
It goes blank

It takes all night just to put out the fire-fight
Twisting and contorting just to get the words right
I’ve seen it love, I’ve seen it kill
don’t you dare tell me it’s not real

It takes all night just to put out the fire-fight
Twisting and contorting just to get the words right
I’ve seen it love, I’ve seen it feel
don’t you dare tell me it’s not real

Calm down here’s the deal
Relax now, hold on to what you feel
Calm down, you know it’s not real
it’s just a trick
