about

I like to think this song is about when people let a relationship get worse until it just becomes nothing at all. if I were to put meaning to this song, that's what it would be about.

With little insight I had at my young age, I tended to lyrics tended to be ripped off other songs or influenced by observation; rather than personal experience. I was just really trying to find cool words that rhymed together.

This winter, Seth and I went in and to re-record vocals for all of these songs. For a while, I seriously thought about writing new "mature" lyrics for most of our recordings. But in the end, I felt like I had to stay true to the original lyrics.

The title of this song SMB, stands for Scratch My Balls. This nickname was crafted by members of the Enthusiastics.

SMB was the first original we ever wrote as a band. That's not exactly true, but it is the first one we were ever really proud of (although we don't play it live anymore).

lyrics

Round and Round
You build me up and break me down
Without a stop in sight
I’m hanging on with all my might
But we’ll continue to fall
Till were nothing at all
Till were nothing at all
(verse)
So contradicting all the things you say
With everything not turning out the right way
You have an aimless, sense of direction
Always searching but failing perfection
(chorus)
Round and Round
You build me up and break me down
Without a stop in sight
I’m hanging on with all my might
But we’ll continue to fall
Till were nothing at all
Till were nothing at all
(verse)
Ive been searching, all around
But the same old, answers always found
Just to start back, at the beginning again
Just to go back, When I hit the next end
(chorus)
Round and Round
Another year has come unbound
And we haven’t come far
From where we already are
So we’ll continue to fall
Although I’m nothing at all
Although I’m nothing at all

about

J & The White Kids Massachusetts

Bred from pizza, rice crispy treats, caffeine, and teenage angst our band was formed in order to get girls. Once we found out that was not going to happen, we actually began focusing on our music. We're always playing of live shows, so we can pretty much rock the shit out of anywhere. It doesn't really matter if it is a basement, funeral, or synagogue. ... more
