“Prepare to add Glenn Robinson to your ever-growing list of heroes…” - REAL GONE ROCKS

"Brimming with classic pop-punk aggression and melodies that shine through and carry you from start to finish. Definitely not for the timid, the guitars come out of the blocks smokin', providing a constant sonic assault on the senses (and will have you playing air guitar in no time) to drive the fast-paced, hook-filled, proceedings." - KOOL KAT MUSIC

“Its anchored throughout by Robinson’s keen feel for melody, making the ten brief tracks on Modern Mistakes fly by in couple of a head-bopping moments" - POP THAT GOES CRUNCH

Track Name: The Worst
THE WORST
I've got insecurities
But I'm gonna make them feel alright
You've got certain words for me
But I'm gonna make them sound alright

What a waste of a pretty face
Bad taste in a mental case
A pathetic waste of space - alright

I don't care what your future holds
You're gonna make it seem alright
You're bringing out the worst in me
I'm gonna make it feel alright

I've got insecurities
You've got certain words for me
Never take responsibility
You're bringing out the worst in me
Track Name: Gimme Insanity
GIMME INSANITY

I don't wanna take the backseat
But I don't wanna be held accountable
I am a living machine that's
Almost broken, if not combustible
My head is not meant to handle this

Stupid is the new dumb
And I've had enough

Gimme gimme insanity
Gimme gimme insanity
Gimme gimme insanity
Oh yea!
Track Name: Wavelengths
WAVELENGTHS

Hey, I've gotta get up early
But that doesn't mean I won't stay up all night
I can talk to you about anything
For hours and hours
Tell me another story
Tell me all of your biggest fears
I wanna hear it all
You fascinate me
Keep going

I'm not gonna feed you any lines
You have my word I'll be by your side

Cause we operate on similar wavelengths
And we can relate better than we think
So don't hesitate cause we are a sure thing
I will wait for you till you say otherwise

You know how to drive me crazy
You know you do it all too well
No matter what you do
You stay so true
Don't change
Never change
Track Name: Desperate With Standards
DESPERATE WITH STANDARDS

Come out tonight don't let me down
Let's make a bad decision and run it into the ground
Nobody else can make me feel like you
Come out tonight and stop playing games
Though I'm willing to participate it's not the same
Nobody else can make me feel like you

Day to day you pull charades
And think you do it well
You're calculated, far from perfect
From a distance, nobody can tell

Come out tonight and break all of your plans
I'd break all of mine too if I had the chance
Nobody else can make me feel like you

Now you're back on track not under attack
Looking through the gutters for what's left
You gotta step back, watch it all collapse
Like I know you
Track Name: Outta My Head
OUTTA MY HEAD

I'm bored and got nothing to lose
I'm burning out the shortest fuse
I'm locked in and left out
With overwhelming self-doubt
I'm burning out the shortest fuse

I'm outta my head!
I'm outta my head!
I'm outta my head!
I'm outta my head!

Leave all my feelings on the shelf
I'll leave the mess for someone else
I'm locked in and left out
With overwhelming self-doubt
At least that's what I tell myself

I'm not gonna lie I don't have any right
But I'll be crying and denying
Every fucking say until I die
Track Name: Tambourine
TAMBOURINE

Stop me in my tracks
Gimme some distraction
Waiting for a perfect moment
Waiting for direction

I’ve been chasing and erasing
All these things for a long time
I’ve been dreaming and believing
About you every night
I cannot see myself
With anybody else
Will you waste these days with me?

Stop me in my tracks
Gimme some distraction
Looking for a bigger purpose
Waiting for an accident
Track Name: The Last Winner
I don't know just where I stand
Could you please draw me a diagram?
So I can pick it back up and get it all right now
The last winner never shines
But they get what they want when they have the time
So go pick it back up and get it all right now

We always leave ourselves to dream
So we don't have to care
Cause nobody knows when they're gonna go
And that just don't seem fair.

I don't know what my future reads
I don't care. I don't think I do what I please
So I can pick it back up and get it all right now
I don't mind just where I'm placed
Could you just save me a seat just in case?
I ever pick it back up and get it all right now.
Track Name: I Really Shouldn't Bother
I REALLY SHOULDN'T BOTHER

Can't you tell me what just lies ahead
Let me get inside your mind
Don't leave me hanging waiting for more
Don't let me waste my time
And I won't waste yours
I'm gonna get my shit together one of these days
And I promise that I'll stay true
If you're gonna fuck me over then that's OK
Cause if I'm gonna get screwed
I'll be glad it was you and I

I really shouldn't bother
I really should know
I really shouldn't bother
I know I'll go and I'll blow it all again

Can't you tell me what is wrong right here
And I'll gladly hold up my end
If we're waiting around then we're trouble bound
And I just can't pretend to only be your friend

Now I'm blankly staring at the wall all night
Rehashed all your words a thousand times
I could not make any sense
It doesn't make a difference
Now you're gone and I am all alone
Track Name: Hang Around and Stay Awhile
How many nights can I stay awake?
How much caffeine can my body take?
I can't tolerate these cold winter nights
Come freeze with me under these city lights

Nobody gets it quite like she does
Nobody puts up with me just because
I look back and I start to cringe
Because of all the things that I have missed

Hang around
Cause I'm no good without you
Stay Awhile
Keep everything in place
It's been some time since I've been feeling something
Everything in me says it's all right

She is the best thing my eyes have seen
Better than anything that I could dream
Once you know what's good you won't let it go
No matter what because it's all you'll know

Oh I know where I have been
And it's weird how everything falls into place
And of of the terrible chain of events will take us
To where we least expect it to
...everything falls into place
Track Name: Fire in the Hole!
Hey! My head is spinning upside down again
Hey! My head is spinning and spilling out, my friend
Somebody keep me down
Somebody keep me sane
Somebody lost control of my brain

I've been misplaced in a world I don't belong
I've been replaced in a life I thought was gone.
I've been misplaced in a world I don't belong
I've been replaced in a life I thought was gone.

Hey! My head is spinning upside down again
Hey! My eyes are bleeding for the end, my friend
Somebody keep me down
Somebody keep me sane
Somebody lost control of my brain
