Ways Away är ett nytt band för året och dom släppte sitt debutalbum i juli. Men det är inte direkt några nybörjare vi har att göra med, medlemmarna är Sergie Loobkoff på gitarr (Samiam, Knapsack, Racquet Club, Solea), sång/gitarr Jesse Barnett (Stick to Your Guns, Wish You Were Here), trummor Jared Shavelson (Paint It Black, None More Black, BoySetsFire), och Ian Smith (Racquet Club) på bas.

Sergie Loobkoff är mannen som ligger bakom det mesta av låtskrivandet och han har sagt att ungefär 80% av låtarna till detta album är låtar som han skrivit till Samiam om dom varit aktiva. För mig som växte upp med skivorna Clumsy och You´re Freaking Me Out är ju detta helt fantastiskt!

1. Die On The Vine

[Intro]
Been a while since you came around
What the hell is that about?
Had to see about some things, well where are you now?

[Verse 1]
Waiting for the come around
Held your breath for so long that you lost count
You went for air but never came back down
You never liked this shitty town
Said it always dragged you down
Said we should make a break, well I never wanted out

[Chorus]
If you want me to change you’re wasting your time
So just walk away and let me die here on the vine

[Verse 2]
I heard you said you’re better off
That you don’t think we’re good enough
Well isn’t that some shit
But it all comes at a cost

[Chorus]
If you want me to change you’re wasting your time
So just walk away and let me die here on the vine
There’s a lot to say, but now’s not the time
So I’ll just keep it to myself
And I’ll see you when I see you maybe in another life
Don’t you worry I’ll tell your story
You’re a big man with bigger plans
Forgetting everyone who gave you a hand
So, what happened to yesterday?
You up and went, came back and changed
I still remember all the shit you forgot about
Try not to trip on your way out
[Bridge]
When you left you were never the same
Just slammed the door in our fucking face
And I’ll never forgive you, no!
I’ll never forgive you

[Chorus]
If you want me to change you’re wasting your time
So just walk away and let me die here on the vine
There’s a lot to say, but now’s not the time
So I’ll just keep it to myself
And I’ll see you when I see you maybe in another life
Don’t you worry I’ll tell your story
You’re a big man with bigger plans
Forgetting everyone who gave you a hand
So, what happened to yesterday?
You up and went, came back and changed
I still remember all the shit you forgot about
Try not to trip on your way out

2. No Means, No Ends

[Verse 1]
Please stop before we start I know you’re right
You did what you had to do but look at you now, you’re right on time
Never went to deep but now you think you might, yeah
I couldn’t care less because I know I tried

[Chorus]
I tried to say goodbye to you
And even though you wouldn’t move
I did what I had to do
I’ve got no, no time for you
And I cut off my helping hand
I hope that you understand
I know you do
I know you do
I know you do

[Verse 2]
Never think it through, you have no means no ends
What am I supposed to think when you go so far tryna fuck my friends
I can’t quite grasp all the things going in your head
But you seem far too often to forget

[Chorus]
I tried to say goodbye to you
And even though you wouldn’t move
I did what I had to do
I’ve got no, no time for you
And I cut off my helping hand
I hope that you understand
I know you do
[Outro]
No, I won’t be your fucking fool
I’ve got no time, no time for you, no
I won’t be your fucking fool
I’ve got no time, no time for you
No time for you
No time for you
No time for you
No time for

3. Roam With A Ghost

[Verse 1]
Never mind what you said to me
That shit don’t bother me anyway
Yeah I got to admit, I hate to see you like this
But I’m done driving your get away
You open fire at everything
But I never hold you to it
Now you’re running the risk
How did it end up like this?
You made your bed but I’m lying in it

[Pre-Chorus]
You want it? You got it, I’m giving up
You know damn well I tried, but
You want it? Well you got it
I won’t spend one more night asking myself why

[Chorus]
I’ve given up but you’re still holding that gun
Fighting a war you’ve already won
But now you’re alone just throwing your stones
Nothing to do but roam with a ghost
Still fighting a war you’ve already won

[Verse 2]
You built your life on a fantasy
You’ve got no grip on reality
And yeah I’m sorry to say it doesn’t work that way
So take the loss and then just walk away
[Pre-Chorus]
You want it? You got it, I’m giving up
You know damn well I tried, but
You want it? Well you got it
I won’t spend one more night asking myself why

[Chorus]
I’ve given up but you’re still holding that gun
Fighting a war you’ve already won
But now you’re alone just throwing your stones
Nothing to do but roam with a ghost
Still fighting a war you’ve already won
You’ve already won

[Bridge]
I’ve given up but you’re still holding that gun
Fighting a war you’ve already won

[Chorus]
I’ve given up but you’re still holding that gun
Fighting a war you’ve already won
But now you’re alone just throwing your stones
Nothing to do but roam with a ghost
Still fighting a war you’ve already won
You’ve already won

4. Halfway Open

[Verse 1]
I think it’s best if I just leave
’cause watching you back paddle is
Boring and embarrassing

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s fine, I really don’t mind
You think I’m a waste of time, so
You stay and I’ll go
Because the feeling is mutual

[Verse 2]
So what the fuck are you on about?
You talked your shit and you
Took the words right from my mouth

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s fine, I really don’t mind
I can always read the signs
So you stay because I’m gone
And what you got won’t last for long, boy

[Chorus]
I guess it’s true what you say
I always leave things halfway open
Open, undone
I’m a chance you’ll never take
I’ll always leave things halfway open
Open, yeah
[Verse 3]
There’s not much left for you to say
And if there is I’m sure
It’ll get back to me any way

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s fine, I really don’t mind
This is all just a waste of time
So I don’t care if you stay or go
Because I’ll be just fine here on my own

[Chorus]
I guess it’s true what you say
I always leave things halfway open
Open, undone
I’m a chance you’ll never take
I’ll always leave things halfway open
Open

[Bridge]
You stay because I’m gone
And what you got won’t last for long

[Chorus]
I guess it’s true what you say
I always leave things halfway open
Open, undone
I’m a chance you’ll never take
I’ll always leave things halfway open
Open, yeah

5. Everyone I Know (The Optimist)

[Verse 1]
Out in the city with the gonna be’s
It’s gotta be a burden knowing everything
This is the longest line I’ve ever seen
Dead bored, still waiting for an opening

[Chorus]
It seems like everyone I know is just some jaded fucking joke
With nothing to do and not a god damn thing to show
And all those things that you say are blowing up in your face
But I can’t lie, it feels great, I feel great

[Verse 2]
You got your blueprints and your 5 year plan
Waiting for your call with your number in your hand
Stars you pictured fly right over head
Now I bet you wish you would’ve spoke a little less

[Chorus – 2x]
It seems like everyone I know is just some jaded fucking joke
With nothing to do and not a god damn thing to show
And all those things that you say are blowing up in your face
But I can’t lie, it feels great, I feel great

[Outro]
It seems like everyone I know is just some jaded fucking joke
(Out in the city with the gonna be’s)
With nothing to do and not a god damn thing to show
(This is the longest line I’ve ever seen)
And all those things that you say are blowing up in your face
(Stars you pictured fly right over head)
But I can’t lie, it feels great, I feel great
(I feel great, I feel great, I feel great)
