scarletgrant I truly love Villainest and their music. It makes me happy and reminds me of days long gone (high school). Very talented group of musicians and I hope to see them live one day. Think I have a crush on Robin! lol

vanillacat1 I've caught myself singing "Mixtape" out loud without even realizing I'm doing it. By the time I notice, I'm already more than halfway through and getting weird stares from the people on the train around me. Perfect song. I love it. Favorite track: Mixtape.

I could find you now if I decide All that hides you now are blinding lights and speeding cars Your hideout’s hidden, but you must confess The sunken basement of your old address, it isn’t hard. You pull your punches with consistency You make me suffer, you make me scream – but I survive The fights we’ve had have always been pretend You give me scars I show to all my friends just like a prize. Was it worth it, the blood we spent? I’m not angry, I’m not upset The lives we’re living The times we’ve known If not for enemies we’d die alone So take your camera, fix it at your screen Send your high scores to the magazines Hold it high so everyone can see that Nothing matters. Remember love? The kind that we both found Before I had to burn your island down It was true back then as much as it is now We need each other more than we want out.
Mixtape 06:05
Awkward and thin in all the wrong places Painfully shy with bright, shiny braces Maddening crushes that have no basis Tall girls and short boys with little girl faces, But it feels like love And it’s the first time your heart is beating First time it bears repeating Oh, and it feels like love, Because you’re thirteen years old and you’re just waiting for it all to start. And you made this mixtape Hours by the radio Catching all the songs as they come and go. It’s not just a mixtape - it’s your heart and it’s your soul In other people’s words from the radio. Hope springs eternal behind those thick glasses Hearts and initials on desks in your classes Stare at your sneakers when your crush passes Everyone races to grow up the fastest.
beep boop beep beoowwww
