Pocket Science Nashville, Tennessee

Born out of Nashville, TN, Pocket Science is John Michael McCasland, Tate Mercer, Jack Taylor, and Luke Granered. Inspired by the rebellion of social norms, unstable and toxic relationships, and just a bit of fun nonsense they've created a sound that pulls from the crushing guitar style of early Foo Fighters with the quirkiness of Weezer while maintaining a modern sound and style. ... more

Track Name: Yesterday A Hero (But Not Today)
LYRICS:

Hey yesterday a hero, but not today no
Hey outlet testing, wet hands they sharpen your brain
Horror film collections stacked on top of the family portaits
My father he scares me, my mother she told me son he'll never die

But he doesn't care
He's lying dead on the floor and now
Now I don't care
Cus he doesn't care

Hey reuniting in the emergency room
Hey or in the court room but still its nice to see you
My brother he died twice stopped his heart and then he went to sleep
His brother breathes for him, my mother she swears now she won't let him die

But he doesn't care
He's lying dead on the floor and now
Now I don't care
Cus he doesn't care

Now everyone, they have their own motives
When everyone, when they go on and blow it
I'm unconcerned cus I'm unknown
I am unknown

Hey yesterday a hero, but not today no
Track Name: Cult of My Own
LYRICS:

I was eighteen, I got sent far away to university
They said, "Don't worry, son. You've got a nice little opportunity"
Well, I disagree on the principles of brainwashing your very own disciples
But who knows, maybe I'll start a cult of my own

In and out of my head I'm singing yeah
I've gotta wait for you
In and out of my head you're screaming yeah
You've got a lot to lose

Now we must agree that Jesus is an alien
Who set us free from all the people zoos
But lately, I wanna be locked in my cage

In and out of my head I'm singing yeah
I've gotta wait for you
In and out of my head you're screaming yeah
You've got a lot to lose

HHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

In and out of my head I'm singing yeah
I've gotta wait for you
In and out of my head you're screaming yeah
You've got a lot to lose

HHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Track Name: Take Flight, Ignite
LYRICS:

When I go out I'm always taking a chance
A social drought, a hostile shaking of hands
I never hear the words that flow through my ears
I'd never say you're probably doing the same
I must assume that I am the only one
That doesn't know, that doesn't know anyone
Its not my fault but then it probably could be
The drugs I bought I hear them laughing at me

So take flight ignite
And unwind your life
Cut loose, reduce
You're doing fine

So take flight, ignite
And unwind your life
Cut loose, reduce
You'll be alright

Everything kills, including the pills
Food on the shelf, degrading myself
Now all I want is to make a change in the world
But all I do is keep on begging for more
An endless loop of self-loathing and drugs
Digital hype, we've finally all had enough
And now its known, enough is never enough
You're all alone, enough is never enough

So take flight ignite
And unwind your life
Cut loose, reduce
You're doing fine

So take flight, ignite
And unwind your life
Cut loose, reduce
You'll be alright
Track Name: Health Insurance
LYRICS:

Pondering to myself I ask, "Is it worth it? Proving our worth?"
We spend our time building a mask and running from spirit rebirth
For the sake of insurance but is it your choice to make?
Depends how you view decisions made for all by few

Well I'll take my time, my dollar, and dime the hell away from here

Give me one good reason why
I should pay into the lies
I can't be the only one who sees
the irony in living free

Pondering to yourself you ask, "Is it necessary?"
Hating the right and loving the wrong
Lacking source in what you write
Do you know what you're spreading or where you're heading?
Or are you blind to what clogs up your mind?

Well I'll take my time, my dollar, and dime the hell away from here

Give me one good reason why
I should pay into the lies
I can't be the only one who sees the irony

Do you know?
Why we're trading today for tomorrow?
Do you know?
Why we're trading today for tomorrow?

Give me one good reason why
I should pay into the lies
I can't be the only one who sees the irony
