about

¡pretend surprise! Wilmington, North Carolina

Pretend Surprise is a band that puts on a fiery live show. The music is moody and sometimes danceable rock, filled with hard hitting drums and inordinate but caustic guitar playing. The band ignores typical construction and the songs wander and burn, coming off free-form coupled with a powerful lead singer. ... more

Track Name: Saturnalia
Saturnalia
lyrics by B. Haag

Hey! You've taken orders all day don't stay inside tonight please come out and play

They married time to money now we waste away our days chasing dreams in pyramid schemes that we will not obtain this is all we have so leave your debts and woes at home don't let them take this cause this is all we own

So Forward all ! into the night will sing will dance will kiss will fight I'll follow you will be alright
will be alright

Choose your poison will ascend to disarray
streets unfold potential let them take us where they may the scene we make will take to everywhere we go a celebration of higher math with people we don't know

Lets pretend we still have time like the sun's over head
lets pretend we still have time like we are!

A generation of hearts we're on the wire
A generation of hearts we're on the wire
where do we go from here??

Last call comes but we've only just begun
parade the streets in drunk disorder
feeling like we've won attempt to walk straight lines
home in time to greet the sun and the day's imposing
curriculum.
Track Name: charades
Lyrics by B. Haag

You and I have been here before now
this point where our hearts fall
out of beat and I don't know if I can wait for you
for us to be in cadence yet again

Just like before
we've fooled ourselves again
into believing
into believing this charade
into believing this charade

And on the nights we're both lush
we chase our drinks with tears
and all that's said before
spills and stains the carpet floor
spills and stains the carpet floor

Just like before
we've fooled ourselves again
into believing
into believing this charade
into believing this charade

Resentment drips from your fangs
you taste it so do I
it's all we can do to not sink our teeth into
it't all we can do to not sink our teeth into you
it's all we can do
it's all we can do

Just like before
we've fooled ourselves again
into believing
into believing this charade
into believing this charade

False friends
powder white lies
if that's what you want lets call this a tie
False friends powder white lines
if that's what you want lets call this a tie
Track Name: the product of a 24hr news cycle
Lyrics by B. Haag

My actions stem desperation
lost my job now the kids need food
what hope I had is all but diminished
my options now are but few
I cant believe what I'm about to do

The metal's cold
the ammo's live
she's the only one I see inside
(inside)

Approach discreetly just like on TV
black mask to conceal my ID
kick in the door, gun drawn yelling
"put your hands where I can see! "

Conscious screaming loud
can't turn it down
( the things we do for money)

she reacted like everyone in history
who had ever found they're staring
down the barrel of a gun
Don't let your heart stop oh oh oh
Don't let your heart stop

no not for me
if i let you make the phone call
will you let me flee the scene

Conscious screaming loud
can't turn it down

she reacted like everyone in history
who had ever found they're staring
down the barrel of a gun
Don't let your heart stop oh oh oh

the safe it wouldn't open
so she began to cry
the feeling was reciprocal and then so did I
ten dollars and cigarettes was all she could provide
I let it settle I'm not a good bad guy

Conscious screaming loud
can't turn it down
she reacted like everyone in history
who had ever found they're staring
down the barrel of a gun
Don't let your heart stop oh oh oh
Don't let your heart stop ohhhhhhhhhhhh

When she told me
she was dying I said it's just fear so please stop crying
I said it's just fear
I said it's just fear
I Said it's just

But she didn't hear me
say I'm sorry
over the sound of sirens
the sound of sirens
the sound of sirens
the sound of sirens

lyrics by B. Haag

Days have passed
since we went down
We dropped the bomb
It brought them round

This far away
we are kings of all
we survey

Sky and sea
are seemlessly bound
the sobering math
we'll never be found

They're looking in all the wrong places

Is that land I see
or is that the ocean fucking with me

This far away
we are kings of all
we survey
