(I Just Died) Like An Aviator

Everything sucks
As bad as it gets
It all fell apart again
God, I'm a wreck

Rock N Roll
My oh my
The same thing that makes you live
Can bury you alive

And we fall so easily
I just died
Like an aviator
With my heart on my sleeve

And somebody said
"Look that bum!"
Since the sound of monuments
It's all heartless and dumb

I'm pouring a drink
And smoking a smoke
Our guts are born in that fiery trench
Between hurt and hope

And we fall so easily
I just died
Like an aviator
With my heart on my sleeve

Don't die, don't disappear...
I swear to god we need you here

Matthew Ryan is experiencing a noisy renaissance. It began in 2014 with "Boxers" and now with "Hustle Up Starlings" we see the follow-through.
Produced by Brian Fallon, "Starlings" shimmers with silvery anthems & a captivating focus. The set clocks in at 40 minutes with no prevarication or bluster, just a celebratory noise alight w/ hearts, broken-in voices & poetry.
