about

Kind Of Classy is not just an album. It's an event. An event where the minds of Zach Katz, Christian Novelli, and Jon Duckworth join from thousands of miles away. An event filled with eerie synths, melodic vocals, cool bowties, and maybe even backpacks. Pretty classy huh? Well, kind of.

Track Name: Settle Down Kids
oh no oh no
you're piercing through me
worried eyes
and begging to go
these stolen kids
are dropping like flies
you are you are
on the brink of intellect
and running too far
we're leaving this town

i feel fine
i feel fine
pretending you're gone
we were fine
we were fine
until you came along

i am i am
modeling a bureaucrat
for desperate demand
you say that you're not coming back
they're hidden in lakes
magnify the evening glass
whatever it takes
to find your way out
Track Name: Life At Sea
grew up in a city that we built out of pity
and it's not too nice, and it's not too pretty
but it's all we've got so just deal with it
two long days and a new beginning
deals, deals, oh so quick
an upscale movie and an indie flick
indie that, indie this
just let it go and let us live

you know what you'll be
so i can spend my time at sea
when this cash is more than green
we cut down trees, we're singing
this is going great!

we drive nice cars but not too far
exquisite taste, a life of stars
i'll buy your drinks...
yeah i'll buy it all, but
when you come back persistent kids
are following your marks and skids
unhappy lies, we're getting rid
of everything, you know

you know what you'll be
so i can spend my time at sea
when this cash is more than green
we cut down trees, we're singing
this is going great!

nothing is real, we sold our souls
to market schemes and acting roles
yeah, who am i?
well...i don't know
a pack of wolves and banker chains
they're begging, now we're stuck in rain
it's time for more than pocket change
you know, you know, you know

you know what you'll be
so i can spend my time at sea
when this cash is more than green
we cut down trees, we're singing
this is going great!
Track Name: Canvas Dreams
have some problems
not too much
i'll spill some details
over lunch
all these people
feeling worthless
conversations
you never heard them
park benches
dizzy circles
aubergine sky
dark purple
we're above it
high above it
so high above it

we're not going home!
we're not going home!

leave the freeway
perfect exit
bright ballparks
misdirection
but we don't care
step on landmines
get handed
what we might find
newspapers
pure airlines
throw our watches
lose the time
swallow pipe dreams
these are my dreams
we're here forever

we're not going home!
we're not going home!

we're not going home!
we're not going home!
Track Name: Glide Boy
listen here we're gonna make things right
drive home in the dead of the night
and i know
you've found me out, but how?
look sharp for medicine
i'm oh so innocent
our morning guide is clearly ill
right now
pan down to forest roads
potential horoscopes
and open plots so we can
flood this whole place out
i'll make a mean attempt
you'll say you're sorry then
now you're just
now you're just flailing on the ground

the horrors we've been told
laced with shining gold
we hide until they go
i guess they'll never know
the horrors we've been told
laced with shining gold
we hide until they go
i guess they'll never know

glorify the wrong from right
my name drawn up in lights
i guess this goes to show
what makes it through this town
glide boy past everglades
i'll take whatever pays
and throw your morals swiftly out
the darkness fills it in
so we drew back a bit
alarm clocks chiming in
"it's too late now"
a business suit and tie
a briefcase full of lies
they must have
they must have found us out somehow
found us out somehow

the horrors we've been told
laced with shining gold
we hide until they go
i guess they'll never know
the horrors we've been told
laced with shining gold
we hide until they go
i guess they'll never know
Track Name: Pack Up
where will we be one year from now
someone walk out the door
when you say that we should leave
we end up insecure

let's pack up and go
pack up and go
pack up and go go
let's pack up and go
they'll never know
they'll never know
let's just go
in rain or snow
let's just go

sell our keys, it moves too fast
time runs on no demand
find a way to shed this place
to live and leave this land

church quartets rain down on
us it ends before we
know our paths run dry
these humble souls
it's time for us to go

let's pack up and go
pack up and go
pack up and go go
let's pack up and go
they'll never know
they'll never know
let's just go
in rain or snow
let's just go
Track Name: Imaginary Monsters
i'm something extra special
an introverted race from zen
some capsules on my table
since when is innocence a sin
the bedroom windows open
i'm laying on an asphault drive
can you sit here and calm me
i wanna keep my thoughts alive

we are alone now
so free to roam now
we are alone now
oh oh oh oh
we are alone now
i'm on my own now
we are alone now
oh oh oh oh

a monster in the window
you couldn't catch his silhouette
the symphonies are swimming
they're telling me "don't give up yet"
an inner city healing
lighting is obscure and dim
these existential extracts
they'll have the nerve to let us in

we are alone now
so free to roam now
we are alone now
oh oh oh oh
we are alone now
i'm on my own now
we are alone now
oh oh oh oh
