"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: Feel Alive
It's hard to survive when you don't know what you need
I'm always stuck in the exact same speed
I guess someone will come help me out

It's hard to stay calm with what's in our veins
We move right along and celebrate the pain
I guess it's right where we belong

It's hard to be cool when you don't give a shit
I could try to fit in, but I don't give a fuck about it
I've got bigger fish to fry

It's hard to find love when you don't use your eyes
But if I keep 'em shut, I know that I will be alright
I don't need someone just to feel alive
Track Name: I Wanna Marry Rock and Roll
I wanna marry rock and roll
I give her my heart, I give her my soul
Though I might die, she will never grow old
I wanna marry rock and roll

To her I swear to honor and protect
I'm hanging my ring around a Les Paul neck
She cries Jack Daniels and she spits Jim Beam
Her wedding vows are lyrics by Queen

Everything sucks don't you think I know?
Tomorrow's gonna suck, just let it go
Give me three chords and I can break your heart
Give me six beers and I'll even call it art
Track Name: Let Go
I love a girl I'll never talk to
I mean I'll never tell her how I feel
'Cuz I can't handle disappointment
So I'm keeping my lips sealed

I've got friends I like to drink with
But they will never hear about my pain
'Cuz once they know the bad stuff
Hanging out won't be the same

I've got dreams I'll never chase down
So I leave them in the sky
'Cuz I'm too busy sinking
To ever even try

I've got songs I'll never play you
I only sing them late at night
When nobody is listening
And they make me feel alright

I've got a town I think I'm stuck in
But I leave it all the time
I am always searching
For a home I can call mine

So if you're even listening
If you think you know
That I'm the one you're missing
I'm the one you've gotta let go
Track Name: When Will I Die?
When did you die?
And was I there when it happened?
Did you even try to stop it?

When will I die?
And will you be there when it happens?
Don't you dare try to stop it

When will you die?
And will I be there when it happens?
I will not try to stop it
Track Name: Easy
I'm about as eager as a newborn
I'm about as steady as your hand
After one too many cocktails
Tell me how do you even stand

And I'm about as potent as a needle
Loaded up with medicine
That you need to survive
Depends which vein you stick it in

And I just want it all to be easy for you

I'm about as deadly as a pillow
Cutting off your will to breathe
The stupid shit we take for granted
Impossible things that we believe

And I just want it all to be easy for you
