Proof of Dark Matter

Songfacts®:

  • With songs like "Beer" and "This is not a Song, it's a Sandwich," Psychostick isn't the right band for exploring your emotions. This prompted three members of the band to form Evacuate Chicago, where their songwriting can be taken more seriously. Drummer Alex Preiss told us: "This one is mostly about hoping I can make a difference in the world. I wrote it a couple years before we ever had any songs on the radio, or any shows outside of Phoenix. We were struggling so hard to be taken seriously, and even a lot of people in our hometown were telling us to 'write more serious songs!' So, I guess I kind of did. I wrote a serious song about hoping that our comedy band could be taken seriously! It's an odd concept, I know. But the song is also about hoping to connect to people with my lyrics, and wondering if I ever could." (get more at evacuatechicago.com)

  • Cody from Flint, MiEvacuate Chicago - Proof of Dark Matter

    My mistake, I thought I was someone else
    Hide your face, hide away the way it felt
    I'm giving in, settling for second best
    it's wearing thin, letting you collapse my chest

    Well like a number of times, I've started over
    And I got so sick and tired, that I'm not a lover
    I guess the least i can do, is hope that Its not true
    this crystal you're looking through, knows more then I do

    My mistake, must have been your favorite game
    Show your tears, but never say my name again
    say goodbye, I'll never turn around to see
    one last time, everything i used to be

    Well like a number of times, I've started over
    And i got so sick and tired, that I'm not a lover
    I guess the least i can do, is hope that Its not true
    this crystal you're looking through, knows more then I do

    If I could make someone, feel
    I would be much more, then I
    could ever ask of you, and I
    Could ever ask of me, more then I x2

    More then I could ever ask for x4
