about

The Noise FM Lawrence, Kansas

The Noise FM plays melodic, beat-driven indie-rock. Sometimes the tunes get really loud with fuzzed out synthesizers and gnarly riffs. Other times, it gets quieter -- all grooves and sexy vibes. Regardless of the volume, people tend to dance.
Brothers Alex & Austin Ward formed The Noise FM in Lawrence, Kansas. Now the band lives in Chicago.

Track Name: The Vault
Your room is just the same as when you left it
I haven’t touched a thing
Your note is on the floor
The air is just as stale as when you left it
It hurts to breathe
It sticks to everything

And if you ever want to come back home
I swear to god I will fix it
If it’s the last thing I do
Why would you ever want to come back home
If you don’t miss it
That’s the last thing you’d do

The water’s not as clear as when you left it
It leaves a film on every glass, a taste in every mouth
And we are running out

A wall is buckling under the pressure
And there’s a leak that can’t be stopped
It poisons every vault
Where are you now?

It’s such a ways to go, I know
To reach the surface
It’s such a ways to go below
And I’m emerging
One more step, one more step
To reach the surface
One more step, one more step
To find out everything you missed

And if you ever want to come back home
I swear to god I will fix it
If it’s the last thing I do
Why would you ever want to come back home
If you don’t miss it
That’s the last thing you’d do

My body’s not the same as when you left it
It’s startling to see
What your absence has done to me
An entrance has become a final exit
And it’s a door that can’t be locked
It poisons every vault
Where are you now?
Track Name: I Can't Stop
Is it cruel
The love I’ve inspired?
Can you prove
That I’ve been a liar?

Can you stand up real high
And hope in the future?
Just the same as I always was
And I’m gonna lose her

I can’t stop
From breaking your heart again
Oh, you know I’ve been consistent
I bet she can barely hold the tears in lately
She can barely hold it

The night is young
But we know how it’s gonna end
The night is over
And she can barely hold it in

So you sold your every desire
And you’re cold where I put out the fire
Can you stand up real high
As someone to talk to?
Just the same as I always was
And I’m gonna lose you
Track Name: Best Mistake
It’s true what they say
I’m slipping away from you
Don’t be ashamed
You’re not to blame for what I put you through

And now
I won’t be around

I forget when I’m just starting
I’m already through
Of all my mistakes
The best that I made was

Don’t look away
I know that look on your face
It’s nothing new

I should have changed
But I stayed the same for you

Now
I won’t be around
I won’t be around

I forget when I’m just starting
I’m already through
Of all my mistakes
The best that I made was

And I don’t know why I try
And I don’t know why I try
When I’m around you
You got me feeling so cold
And I don’t know why I try
I don’t know why I try

I forget when I’m just starting
I’m already through
I'm holding back
All the words I should say
Holding back on you
Of all my mistakes the best that I make is you
Track Name: In Your Orbit
I haven’t learned to stand clear
I move with caution as you push near to the edge
I feel the pull of your gravity forcing me
Into your orbit where the sunlight
Fights the darkness to stay alive

I’d like it better if it felt right
You’d like it better if you knew what’s on my mind
Then you’d come around
I play the man who reads your lines
I’d play the devil but you’re wearing my disguise
You look good in red

Don’t tell me what I’ve already heard
You win it with the final word
Don’t write me off so soon

Now when you know you’ve gone too far
You’re still reaching for the stars
You want to take what’s ours
Now when the world is on the run
And you’ve barely just begun
To leave us all undone

It’s always been
Whoever’s more persistant wins
So don’t count me out so soon

In the slices of time when our orbits align
Are marked by the scars where our bodies collide
They remain forever

Don’t tell me what I’ve already heard
You win it with the final word
So don’t write me off so soon
And it’s always been
Whoever’s more consistent wins
So don’t count me out so soon
Don’t count me out
Track Name: Time Will Tell
You found a way to my heart
Through the spaces in between the walls
All the way to the start

I’m wrapped inside your head
And I suppose
There’s nowhere else that I would rather go
Over and over

Through you
Into the space in our hearts
The time and cells have formed a galaxy
Our bodies filled to their capacity

Our lives behind the sun
Turning on
Our life as a lowly one

We’ll wait and see what the end will be
In our lifetime

Time will tell if we’ve been good enough
If we’ve been crawling are we getting up
We’ll have to wait if we’ve been good enough

Light stands still in the reflection of
All the things we’ve been running from
We’ll have to wait if we’ve been good enough

You’re clever in your mind
You’re clever when you have something to prove
You’re clever and you’re mine
We’ll wait and see what the end will be
In our lifetime

Time will tell if we’ve been good enough
We’ll have to wait and see if we’ve been good enough

Light stands still in the reflection of
All the things we’ve been running from
We’ll have to wait if we’ve been good enough
Track Name: Who We Are
We’ve been given away
We found ourselves in an unfamiliar place
It’s a place I am sure where no one goes

There is a look on my face
A disconnect that is growing in my brain
We’re not seeing any growth potential
Any progress has been accidental

The rat is winning the race
We haven’t even had a chance to keep his pace
His sense of wrong has been overloaded
His sense is off we can feel it in our bones
We are on our own
We’ve been fooled again

Are they raising the stakes
Is this a game they are forcing us to play
They’ll never win if they split the difference
It never ends if they never listen

The rat is stuffing his face
We haven’t even had a chance to fill our plates
His sense of wrong has been overloaded
His sense is off we can feel it in our bones
We are on our own
We’ve been fooled again

Who we are
Tell us all who we are
Who we are
Make us something real

The rat is winning the race
We haven’t even had a chance to keep his pace
And at this rate you’ll get to nowhere faster
You think you’ll get there when you’re falling backwards
His sense of wrong has been overloaded
His sense is off we can feel it in our bones
We are on our own
We’ve been fooled again
