about

Released July 2013 on Salinas Records (BUY IT HERE: www.salinasrecords.com/release/radiator-hospital/something-wild/). Radiator Hospital is me, Boltie, Cynthia, and Jon. Kyle played the crazy solo on “Your Boyfriend” and Allison sang on “Are You Feelin’ Me?” This album was recorded in April 2013 in our house. Kyle recorded all the good sounding songs and I recorded all the hissy ones. All words by me except "Sometimes" which I paraphrased off a Flamin' Groovies record. All sounds by Radiator Hospital. Front Cover by Paul Jaissle (society6.com/paulrjaissle). Layout by Brennan. Photos by us, coloring by me. Thanks to Kyle, Marco, Allison, Brennan, Paul, Kiki, Waxey, all our friend bands, all our friends and families, anyone who’s booked us a show and anyone who’s listened to any of this junk. This album is dedicated to the dreamers. Keep the dream alive. -Sam

Track Name: Do You Remember?
Back in your father’s arms when he said to you that you could do anything you want to, when he looked into your eyes he knew you believed it. Do you remember what you wanted to be then? Well I want to be the one that makes you feel like you could be that thing again. Hair in a sloppy knot, ratty t-shirt on, your singing all the words to your favorite songs. When you looked into my eyes I knew you believed it. Do you remember what I said to you then? When you feel sad I want to be the one that sings the song stuck in your head. Yeah I want to sing the song that makes you forget everything that made you sad.
Track Name: The Great Escape
I was watching the news from the movie theater bar and daydreaming of you. No I’ve never been good at paying attention, but I’m learning to. With my eyes glued, I’m watching the tube, but I’m not listening. Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night and find yourself wishing that he’d walk in the room, sweep you off your feet, kiss you on the cheek and tell you he loves you? Don’t we all wish that it were that easy… So I walked home from the movies, sat on the couch, and turned on the TV. I’ve heard so many stories, all of them ended with you and me. So I try to be cool, but darlin’ this feeling’s hard to explain. I’ve heard so many stories, all of them ended with your name. so you lay in your bed, watch Dawn Of The Dead, and dream of the end of days when he’d walk in the room and say “Come with me, I know the way.” So Happy Birthday baby, you’re so much older than you thought you would be. Happy Birthday baby, you’re so much older than we thought you would be.
Track Name: Big Cloud
Dark sky up above. Big cloud, don’t rain down. There’s a million rainclouds in your head, keep fallin’ down on you, and you can’t look at the ground but it’s all you wanna do. Rain down through your hair. Real loud, don’t be scared. There’s a million rainclouds in your head, keep fallin’ down on you, and you can’t look at the ground but it’s all you wanna do. It’s not the same for you, but at least I’m not the one outside your window.
Track Name: Our Song
Dreaming of the last time that you said you wanted to dance. No you don’t ask me anymore. Maybe you’re just tired when you get home from work, or maybe you’d rather be dancing with someone else. Every time he calls you I can hear a change in your breath, your voice is hushed and controlled. Maybe you’re just tired of straining your throat or maybe there’s something you don’t want me to hear. You won’t get off that easy, no don’t say you love me, when you know you don’t. If you’re thinking that we’re through, I won’t hold it against you, you know I won’t. Every other morning I wake up and find that you’re gone. The note says you went for a jog. Maybe you’re just tired of sleeping in or maybe you’d rather be running away. Every time you kiss me I can hear the Gods call my name, yeah I feel pretty for once, but I can feel the weight of your heart, and it’s making me more tired every day. You won’t get off that easy, no don’t say you love me when you know you don’t. If you’re thinking that we’re through, I won’t hold it against you, you know I won’t. Sometimes I hear you crying alone in the shower, but I don’t make a sound. I just hope that he loves you like I never could do, and you like what you found. When you call your mom back tell her that I’m the one leaving. You know she wouldn’t understand, and she shouldn’t have to, I won’t hold it against you.
Track Name: Cryin' Kind
- I try dancin’ real fine, like I do every time, but I can’t seem to find my love tonight. You crash into your bed and you stare out the window, the stars twinkle brightly in your eye. You say you’re through with them, they say you can’t make up your mind. You won’t let them hurt you, no you’re not the hurtin’ kind. The walk home flew so fast, I got lost in my mind, guess it’s just one more night down the drain. Smoke your last cigarette and now you feel alright for a moment, but soon the feeling wanes. You’re pretty when you laugh, oh you’re pretty when you cry. You won’t let them see that, no you’re not the cryin’ kind.
Track Name: Are You Feeling Me?
I should have known you'd leave the room when I said that I can't stop thinking about you. Open your mouth but the words don't come through.You say you're feelin’ me, but are your feelings true? Oh how can you say you're in love with me when you don't even want to believe? oh how will I know if your love is real when you won't even say how you feel? In bed all day dreaming you away. I say I'm alright while the tears run down my face. I'm reading into the words you won't say. I still can't tell if you even want to stay. I'm not saying I'm not sorry. I'm not saying you should go. I'm not saying I'm not in love. I'm just saying let me know.
Track Name: Lose Sight Of You
When I saw you from across the room, I didn’t care about your name. No this ain’t another love affair. You know I don’t want to play the game. Even when I said I liked your band, I didn’t give a second glance. Now my eyes keep on meeting your eyes, and though I’d love to, I can’t look away. I don’t have a chance. I’m not trying to take you home, but don’t want to lose sight of you.
Track Name: Your Boyfriend
It’s been a very long time since I felt like I do tonight. For the first time it feels right that I’m in love with you. I never looked at you this way until I saw you today, in every line in your face, I’m in love with you. It’s not fair to you what I put you through. It keeps coming back, feels like a heart attack, I don’t know how to act but I know that I’m in love with you. So go tell your boyfriend, it doesn’t matter in the end, no this ain’t pretend you know that I’m in love with you. Don’t tell the truth, don’t say if you love me too.
Track Name: Down Again
I can hear the sound of the beating drum echo through the hallway next to your heart. I can hear the guitar softly strum outside the window to your room. Every time you come around I wonder how you dance around the implications, and they just smile and wave while they wait to watch you come down again.
Track Name: Sometimes
This is a song I paraphrased off a Flamin' Groovies record, it was originally written by Gene Thomas.
Track Name: Ghost Story
Is it the ghost outside your window, or is it the trees in the wind? I ain’t a monster, I ain’t a vampire, so why won’t you let me in? Do you think that you can go back to the haunted room where I loved you? You wear a mask around the people that you are hiding from. Taking candy from strangers never solved any problem. Do you think that there’s a reason to be afraid of the plans we made? Are you listening when they whisper? Are you afraid of the ghost? I’m not afraid of the ghost.
Track Name: Something Wild
It’s a long way down, and we’re so far away from your old house. There’s nobody around. Kiss you on the forehead and undo your blouse. Drifting out, drifting through the water. Through the sound, swim to me now. Long way down, I can feel you fall. Hear me now, through the sound. I saw your eyes, shining like two beacons in the dark night sky. They looked so wild, you looked so alive. Maybe I’ll do something wild. Maybe I’ll do something I’ve never done. Maybe I’ll find some magic. Maybe I’ll find love.
Track Name: Lose Sight Of You
Every time I think that I’ll just go, wonder why I even came, I look out and see you standing there. I think to myself, “Maybe I’ll get back into the game.” When your band starts to play, you give me a second glance. Now my eyes keep on meeting your eyes, and though I’d love to, I can’t look away. I don’t have a chance. I don’t want to be alone, I don’t want to lose sight of you.
