You never know what you're never told
So let me tell you what I think about the world today
We need to listen more to one another
And stop falling into the traps
they set for us

You gotta play, you gotta play the game
But no one said you couldn't break the rules now and then
And it's allowed, it's allowed, it's allowed to make mistakes
That's how we all grow up anyway

You'll never find what you're looking for
if all you can think about is being safe
Go, you go with your gut and never regret the things that you're giving up
Cause we're allowed to make mistakes
That how we separate
the wounds from the pain

And we're allowed to make mistakes

I don't think I can fake it forever
I know we can make it together
So we won't stop till the job is done
Or till we fall asleep
No we won’t stop till the job is done
Or till we fall asleep

The group fearlessly blends electronic dance music with the skills of veteran songwriters, pairing 90s minimal techno with the raw and vertiginous essence of NYC's No Wave movement.
