about

Nigel & The Dropout Detroit, Michigan

The Detroit based two piece looped themselves into a spacious soundscape filled with soaring guitars clashing with heavily chopped samples, hard hitting percussion, ambient synth and layered vocal harmonies.

A nightmare of tangled cables and dazzling lights illuminate a performance void of the inhuman laptop automation and sequencing seen far too often today.

Everything you see and hear - we do.

Track Name: Grinding Grin
Can you hear the silence behind the sound
Can you count the time just not out loud
Do the means exist to slow it down
Fake a smile
Could you love something and not ask why
Will I live once more before I die
Can you honestly never tell a lie
Fake a smile

Could you tell the world it doesn't matter and fuck all day and lie all day
You try so hard but the moneys not there
You suck anyway just die away
Just die away, just die away

Could you live today just to see tomorrow
If I don't wake up don't regret and sorrow
You're an ant and its grand
Fake a Smile
Well you're always living in your final moment
What's the point if you're always alone and
Thinking about your very last breath
Too afraid of pain to embrace your death

Well I'm too strung out to feel my nose
But I know gold because it glows
And when the cops come back to take my shit
I'll be proud because I didn't quit

Trip downstairs and hit my head
Good morning to the waking dead

You're an ant and it's grand
x2
Happiness is on a face
Your soul is louder than saving grace

Run downhill with empty hands and you'll find yourself in a broken land
x2
Track Name: One More Chance
We see the sun and sigh relief
Guaranteed one more day before we leave
Until at once it doesn't raise
What will be said for all our days
When the moon comes out we wouldn't know
Left to mold inside the snow
Take another breath
Here's one more chance to say goodbye

Here's one more chance to say goodbye
Here's one more chance to say

We see a gun and sigh relief
Guaranteed one more shot until we leave
Until at once the triggers pulled
What will be said when you are dead
When the dead all rise without surprise
I'll find my way to you and ask why
Here's one more chance to say goodbye
Track Name: In Decisions
While I'm Free
I've got to be
Calling Shots
50 watts
Louder Still
Not until
This is clear
Cause I fear
No ones here
No where near
Out of breath
Out of air
In the way
I'm in your way

Indecisive got the best of me
Indecisive got the best of me
Indecisive got the best of me
Indecisive got the best of me

Falling Hard
No regard
Time is lost
All at cost
Left or right
Black and white
Fight or Flight
Under light
No ones here
No where near
Out of breath
Our of air
In your way
I'm in your way

Indecisive got the best of me
Indecisive got the best of me
Indecisive got the best of me
Track Name: My Friend,
My friend,
Has another lover
Had any other lover
As her soul begins to hover above my head
My friend
Is talking to me
Is walking at me
From beyond the grave my life she saved when I
Almost fell
Into another hell
What can you do for me
If I help you first
My friend
My friend
My friend

My friend,
Has a place to hide
Where the laws do not abide
As her soul begins to hover above my head
My friend
Will tell me
Ecstasy is what I need
From beyond the grave my life she saved when I
Completely fell
Into some other hell
What can you do for me
If I help you first
My friend
My friend
My friend
My friend
Track Name: Singled Out
Stand in a line
Keep your hands where I can see them
When he says the codeword everybody run, everybody run
You didn't hit the ground fast enough
When he says the codeword everybody run, everybody run

I'll keep you there, don't try and get away
There's nowhere left to run
Just take it and go
I'll keep you there
Don't try and get away
Theres nowhere left to run
Just take it, take it and go

Bind my hands
Now I'm safe, now I'm safe
Break the laws and we will save you
I'm the man, I'm in charge
I'll keep you there I dare you to get away
You can run anywhere
Just take me, take me and go

Watch once more here comes a call
Drop me but don't let me fall
Trap me once behind these bars and I'll be free again, free again
x2
But you won't
But you won't
Track Name: Foreign Orphan's Endorphins
I don't care what you do with summer time
Or my simple life while I'm under your knife
If we left now would we somehow get away from here
I can't seem to shake this feeling
That things aren't in the place they're supposed to be
Things aren't in the place they're supposed to be

I need to be reminded that I'm a part of this world
I need a wake up call to never mind that I'm still dreaming
Fleeting like a memory thats far to close to recall

When the clocks come down all over town
Time wouldn't matter to the bosses with their losses
In the places with the paper and the secrets in the boxes
I can't seem to shake this feeling
That things aren't in the place they're supposed to be
I just need someone to remind me that I'm still asleep

Find a way out, Find a way
Find a way out, Find a way
Track Name: Alarm Clocked
Sometimes we leave and then return
Nothing is changed but the feel is like
Another dream still remains
And then you
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
You're still asleep don't be afraid
You can do anything you want until you
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
All the monsters hide here in the dark
Because it's safe
And you know you won't die alone
Because you love yourself
And no one else

Lie down your head and you're all alone
With your wonderful world
No one to tell you no or that you don't know
Just leave me alone and I'll go away
No one has to stay hey, no one has to stay here
No one has to stay hey, no one has to stay here
x2
Track Name: Nerves On Fire
When I go
Underground
I'll find myself
And you'll know
Why I glow when I'm dark
But it's hard
To explain all of this pain
When I question myself
Reassured
In my head
That I'm real
I'm real

I'm real can you feel me, can you feel, can you feel, that
I'm real
x ∞
Track Name: Is The Bear There?
A feelings lost inside a void
A piano plays another paper boy
Cardboard house sits on a hill
And rolls away with the loss of a single pill

Am I too late to save this place
These peoples fate is sealed in waste
I rearranged and watched us fall in
I wonder what, I wonder what could've been
I wonder what could've been

When we all fall down
And lie in wait
We know its far
It's far to late
To come home now
To come home
x2

A piece breaks off and disappears
Running from a fridge and the sour fears
Where the love is old and the faces too
Where the party hats will dance for you

Am I too late to save this place
These peoples fate is sealed in waste
I rearranged and watched us fall in
I wonder what, I wonder what could've been
I wonder what could've been

When we all fall down
And lie in wait
We know its far
It's far to late
To come home now
To come home
x2
Track Name: Bandaged Appendages
Could have hit a little closer to home
Best aimed shot to let it be known
Could have been caught held out for worse
Was ready at the moment I heard

Left me a house
Just no peace
Never quite quiet
Beneath the beast

Beneath the beast
Beneath the beast
Beneath the beast

Blame the skin they put us in
It tempts the fate to leave with shame
Reaches down within our hands
To push and pull at what it can
The souls at play
Remain unsaved
To start at birth
and dying day

None forgive
None forgive
None forgive
None forgive

None forgive the flaws in skin
to reach out again and lose our limbs
None forgive the flaws in skin
to reach out again and lose our limbs
None forgive the flaws in skin
to reach out again and lose our limbs
None forgive the flaws in skin
to reach out again and lose our limbs
