about

If you want to reach beneath the surface, Getting Laid In New Hampshire is a song about my personality being thrown in my face by someone close to me. I had to re-evaluate who I was to move forward.

Quintin had been playing this riff that wasn’t connected to anything, so when we started working on the song it was worked in there for the intro. There wasn’t necessarily a vision for the sort-of whacky dystopian storm thing that you can hear starting it off, but it continued to build into what you can hear on the album. In hindsight, it’s a big manifestation of what the album title could be taken to mean.

We think the song is very energetic and a great start to it all. It hits hard and the ending is so sudden that it leaves you thinking “what the hell just happened?”. - Brad

lyrics

You don't make sense to me
But yeah, I should've seen past myself
My sight will deceive me (my sight will deceive me)
My sight will deceive me

And I don't listen
I'll never change, I only think in games
You caught me, and I don't have shit to say to that
You know me but I don't know you
Now all the illusions fade

You don't make sense to me
But yeah, I should've seen past myself
My sight will deceive me (my sight will deceive me)
My sight will deceive me

What is patience
Where should I draw my lines
Who am I, to close my eyes
To these things I bring to you, to you

You don't make sense to me
But yeah, I should've seen past myself
My sight will deceive me (my sight will deceive me)
My sight will deceive me
