about

Bishops Harrisonburg, Virginia

"Bishops' wall-of-sound approach to fuzz rock is easy to zone out to in the best of ways, bringing to mind early 90s acts like Bob Mould and Miracle Legion...Dream Easy revels in being in the thick of it, even as it's a cathartic release of anguish. For capturing an important moment in everyone's lives so thoroughly, Dream Easy is already one of my favorite albums of 2016." - Adobe and Teardrops ... more

Track Name: California
Well I'm always stuck inside my head
My good intentions they are dead
So I try to find a new perspective
To help me learn my lesson

And I know that I'll be good
If I just focus on the things I should

And I can't wait to watch you run
All the way to California
While I stay right here on the East Coast
'Cuz it's got all the people I miss most

And I know that I am bad
When it comes to telling you goodbye

They say the grass is sometimes greener
I know your mouth is sometimes meaner
Yeah I hate the shit I hear
You articulate my fear

And I know that I'll be fine
If I could just learn to quiet my mind
Track Name: Inside
Will someone tell me where I gotta go?
Whoa-oh
These days I'm moving extra fucking slow
Whoa-oh

But I just want to stay on the inside
You can't make me play on the outside
Another wasted day in a lifetime
That don't feel right

If I come over tonight are you gonna feel the same?
I'm starting to think that you just like the sound of my name
Being whispered next to yours by the cool kids
I am pretty sure I can't take this
It'll be a chore to erase this
Out of my head, again, again, whoa-oh

'Cuz I just want to stay on the inside
You can't make me play on the outside
Another wasted day in a lifetime
That don't feel right

If I come over tonight are you gonna feel the same?
I'm starting to think that you just like the sound of my name
Being whispered next to yours by the cool kids
I am pretty sure I can't take this
It'll be a chore to erase this
Out of my head, again, again, again, again, again, whoa-oh
Track Name: Buried Underneath
You're wearing out your welcome with all your old best friends
And you're always unwelcome in the house that you grew up in
Do you remember that August when you tried not to live?
'Cuz I recall the autumn when I gave all I had to give
Had to give

Did you write it all down
Because you're sick of the sound?
All that pressure to make it
Will run you in the ground

Your mother planted that flower to remind her what was dead
And I recall the hour I regretted everything I said
I don't waste my time for no one, and baby you soon will see
That we're all hiding something that is buried underneath
Underneath

Did you write it all down
Because you're scared of the sound?
When the soul leaves the body
Don't wanna be around

Did you write it all down
Because you're sick of the sound?
All that pressure to make it
Will run you in the ground
Track Name: Light Expires
When I'm watching you
And my lungs beat different
When the night is through
It won't be so scripted

And I can breathe easy
And I can breathe easier then

When I'm taking you
And my heart's in pieces
When you feel it true
All that guilt releases

And my blood flows easy
And my blood flows easier then

When I'm killing you
And my brain's on fire
It will be over soon
When that light expires

And I can dream easy
And I can dream easier then
And I can dream easy
And I can dream easier then
And I can breathe easy
And my blood flows easier then
If I could dream easy
Then I can dream easier then
Track Name: Think
When you're living it
Do you think about me?
When you get your kicks
Do you think about me?
When you throw your fits
Do you blame it on me?
When it makes you sick
Do you blame it on me?

You were never mine to begin
A heart that's impossible to win
You were never mine

When you press your luck
Do you think about me?
When you're fucking up
Do you think about me?
When you're getting cut
Do you blame it on me?
When all your doors are shut
Do you blame it on me?

You were never mine to begin
A heart that's impossible to win
You were never mine
Track Name: Cut The Cord
Well you've got to cut the cord
You're hurt by both sides of the sword
You want to leave it all behind
It's always burning up your mind

Gave up way too soon
You threw it all away, why?
If you want to hear the truth
Then you can listen while I play guitar in my room

Well we're shooting for the moon
But we can't even fill the room
So you took the jewels and ran
You're selling out the best you can, the best you can

Gave up way too soon
You threw it all away, why?
If you want to hear the truth
Then you can listen while I play guitar in my room

Chew me up spit out the bones
I know we'll always be alone
And don't tell me I can't be pissed
At opportunities we missed

Gave up way too soon
You threw it all away, why?
If you want to hear the truth
Then you can listen while I play guitar in my room
Track Name: Bad Blood
My restless bones, they've gotta move
Cardinal directions, why you gotta make me choose?
I want to know how it finally feels to really have nothing to lose
So load the amps up in the van, boys we've got some shit to prove

But don't you put all that weight on me
No, not this time
I've got to finally learn to see
The light that burns inside of me
It's not like I'm not trying

When it's all said and done, will you like who you are
Or play it out shitty drunk, lose your life in every bar?
I want to die so damn young that it hurts to hear my name
And then roll over in my grave because I caused you any pain

But don't you put all that weight on me
No, not this time
I've got to finally learn to see
The light that shines inside of me
It's not like I'm not trying

'Cuz I've got bad blood
Just look at the bad shit I've done
And then we'll see how it goes
Track Name: Skeleton
In the middle of the night my nerves start jumping
The way you look in this light gets my blood pumping again
When I'm alone and my brain starts cooking
The shape of your bones gets my eyes looking

It's just a matter of time before we're overcome

Gave into you once, you're under all my skin
My skeleton
I should have known not to let you in
My skeleton

My whole life I've been second guessing
It never felt right to count my blessings
When I'm afraid and my hands start shaking
The promises that I've made, one by one I'm breaking

It's just a matter of time before we're overcome

Gave into you once, you're under all my skin
My skeleton
I should have known not to let you in
My skeleton
I thought you were the one, I hate to pretend
My skeleton
I should have known not to let you in
My skeleton

It's just a matter of time before we're overcome
Track Name: Stay Young Pt. II
When I was young, rock and roll kept me alive
We were dumb, but I knew we would survive

I'm over it
I'm fucking over it
Track Name: Guts
Why are my defenses never enough?
Born with empty hearts we've gotta fill them up
But I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go home

And all the places I don't wanna be
I'm gonna leave them behind me
I know I struggle trying to tell you all
That I don't love a goddamned thing

Why are my guts always getting crushed?
We'll meet in the ground soon so what's the rush?
But I don't wanna grow, I don't wanna grow
I don't wanna grow, I don't wanna grow
I don't wanna grow up

And all the places I don't wanna be
I'm gonna leave them behind me
I know I struggle trying to tell you all
That I don't love a goddamned thing
Track Name: Compass Rose
Who's gonna drive me home
Where's my compass rose?
I feel so lost
I guess I should have known
You'd only get so close
Until you pay that cost

When I was a younger man
I had the perfect plan
To run away
But then I fucked around
I tried to settle down
You know I can't stay

Who's gonna drive me home
Where's my compass rose?
I feel so lost
Who's gonna drive me home
Where's my compass rose?
I feel so lost
