about

American Dreams is composed of 10 tracks that take the listener through an ethereal journey about getting stuck in the cheese wheel. The album is about confidence and the lack thereof. It’s about impostors, both real and fake. It’s about failure and the illusion of victory. Stonerpop wants to encourage people to both relax and take action.

about

Stonerpop Louisiana

Stonerpop is an American electronic duo who craft sounds as diverse as the cultures from which they grew. Using thought- provoking lyrics, calming voices, and quirky melodies, Stonerpop’s compositions interlock cleverly woven instrumentation, naturally constructed around synthesizers and keyboards with an injection of analog guitar over heavy and firm beats. ... more

Track Name: The Others
You can have the whole world, it’s at your fingertips
Dying in a gutter, under-neath-a ditch
Rotting in your castle, with all the other assholes,
You can sing a new song

I'm not here to save you
Don't let others claim to
It's just another sad song...

You can change the whole world, nothing you can’t fix
Keeping gold in cages, fighting with loose lips
Living is a hassle, beside the other assholes,
You can sing a new song

I'm not here to save you
Like the others claim to
It's just another sad song
Track Name: House of Cards
We are so susceptible
They have no place left for home
Only one way left to go
Feel the fall then fall again
It is imperceptible
How we changed and left the load
It’s a lie we’re safe at all
Riding on the wind again

You look a mess
Just like the rest
It’s on your breath
It’s in your step
You look a mess
Just like the rest
You talk the talk
But can you walk

How you all neglect the world
Taking turns to strike the nerve
Navigating all the droids?
Take a chance you won't regret.
We’ve become elliptical
coming out to grip the goal
Freaking out at all the noise
We’ve a long way left to go

You look a mess
Just like the rest
It’s on your breath
It’s in your step
You look a mess
Just like the rest
You talk the talk
But can you walk
Track Name: Subroutine
I’ve been writing letters in my head to
Tell you where I’ve been
It’s a customary best friend function
Dunno where to begin
Even though I know that you will listen
talking feels so thin
I imagine your best reaction
as I grab my pen

Everyday inside the same subroutine
Orbits far apart
Can I miss you and it make me happy?
Will it fill my heart?
Every instance of the flag at half mast
Fear the new report
Are we nothing but a list of numbers?
We cannot ignore

I’ve been asking questions in attempt to
Know if we fit in
Stage is set ready to call action
Dunno how to win
Even though I know we aren’t the problem
Turn my eyes within
I imagine us wonder women
So I grab my pen

Everyday inside the same subroutine
Orbits far apart
Can I miss you and it make me happy?
Will it fill my heart?
Every instance of the flag at half mast
Fear the new report
Are we nothing but a list of numbers?
We cannot ignore
Track Name: Night Terrors
Don’t let them confiscate your spine
You need to cultivate your ammunition
We have to fight to stay alive
Darkness will ultimately overcome you

Out of space and time
Terror, terror, see dark matter

Careful they’ll feed on your desire
In secret through your ribs they crawl inside you
You think they fade after a while

Out of space and time
Terror, terror, see dark matter

Out of peace of mind
Terror, terror, dead grey matter

Terror, terror, see dark matter

Terror, terror, dead grey matter
Track Name: Ice Cold Souls
Stay Fight Go
Filled with doubt
If I know
Let me out

Paint the line
Make my way
Ne-ver-mind
Keep at bay

Ice Cold Souls
Break my heart
Throwing stones
In the dark
Never still
I rebuild
Ice Cold Souls
With no will

Break the code
Drop pretense
Stop the show
Don’t relent

Walk the line
Night by day
Burn the shrine
Mold the clay

Ice Cold Souls
Who we are
Show no fear
Light the spark
Never still
I rebuild
Ice Cold Souls
With no will

Ice Cold Souls
Wear me out
Poor old foes
In and out
never still
We rebuild
Ice Cold Souls
With no will
Track Name: Destiny Gang
I could feel my change
Deep within the guise of all my wrongs
Locked within a mask
Tending to the lies my heart has told
Fighting the tide
Nowhere to hide, it’s crazy

Tough luck in the big game
Too late to go home
No, there’s a new way
Now we're fighting back

Always saving face
Walking back mistakes worn on my sleeve
Shamed into a trance
Running into walls, all built by me
Falling behind
Why can’t I climb, I’m lazy
