Agent K(ahunasan) Pop Punk is not dead.....it is enjoying a resurgence through up and coming bands like State Champs, Real Friends, The Story So Far....
Do not overlook The Oversight as contenders in this new crop of punk-poppers.
Overtones are similar to the Starting Line for a sonic reference. Favorite track: When 5 AM Turns.

Track Name: Collective
A 5 month collective, a minute by minute memory, see this is when the miles come together. To put us against ourselves and make ourselves believe we've been beaten. But no, we're lost, not defeated, we are everything but that. See our path was lit by city lights, paved by broken brick and held together by a new found family. And this is a reason to put our fears to bed, and let photographs stay where they belong, for now, this is who we are, we are far from gone.
Track Name: Black & White
Secrets are better told
To no one but the bottles and the graves in the cold
For I have dreamed too much
About love and hope that's far too out of touch

But I'll hope and I'll pray that maybe someday
I'll be a better man but I'll turn to my friends instead

Oh Morgan always told me to be something that I'm not
That more was always better and you should always take a shot
But Jack took me in late, late at night
Said that love lives in color and I drown in black and white

I put a wonderful cover
Smiling to everyone fooling my honest mother
'Cause an empty mind and a broken heart
Leads nowhere but to a god awful start

But I'll hope and I'll pray that maybe someday
I'll be a better man but I'll turn to my friends instead

Oh Morgan always told me to be something that I'm not
That more was always better and you should always take a shot
But Jack took me in late, late at night
Said that love lives in color and I drown in black and white
Track Name: Love Is A Fiction
Girls and ghosts they sound the same to me
Same old causes with all my loses, drive me insane
And I hope the breathes you take are enough for the both of us
Because you took every single one, right out of my chest

I’d rather lay in bed, with my hollow heart
Than stay the night with you just to fall apart
Love is a fiction I want to believe in
But I don’t believe in you because your lies, they wear so thin

I wanna think it’s just a lonely year
One that’s been coming that I couldn’t see from here
So point away, and into the dark
And I’ll find away to forget you right from the start

I’d rather lay in bed, with my hollow heart
Than stay the night with you just to fall apart
Love is a fiction I want to believe in
But I don’t believe in you because your lies, they wear so thin

The only upside of being empty is there’s nothing left
If you fill me up with love or hate, is the real test
The only upside of being empty is there’s nothing left
Don’t you worry about me, I’m just a mess

I’d rather lay in bed, with my hollow heart
Than stay the night with you just to fall apart
Love is a fiction I want to believe in
But I don’t believe in you because your lies, they wear so thin
Track Name: When 5 AM Turns
I can’t sleep at night
Fighting the weight of my every vice
Slowly falling, and waiting, patiently turning for you
And don’t believe that I want to see your honesty
I just want you stay away

Oh lady of the night
Won’t you let me sleep so right?

I beg and plead for one undisturbed dream
To clear my head of what you seem to me

I’m stuck in patterns of
Breathing then screaming
Right at the moon
But my lifeless face it won’t stop staring
Back at me in the mirror
As I try to see
Oh I try, I try

Oh lady of the night
Won't you let me sleep so right?

I beg and plead for one undisturbed dream
To clear my head of what you seem to me
So when 5 am starts to turn
I hope that I start to truly learn
That you're not worth a single thought
And you're not worth being so lost

Stay away
Give me space

Buy back the breath you sold to me
It’s not worth what you’re costing me
I need my life to come clean

I beg and plead for one undisturbed dream
To clear my head of what you seem to me

I beg and plead for one undisturbed dream
To clear my head of what you seem to me
So when 5 am starts to turn
I hope that I start to truly learn
That you're not worth a single thought
And you're not worth being so lost

Stay away
Give me space
Track Name: Far From Gone (Feat. AJ Perdomo)
Let's laugh at the memories that we share
Let's cheer to the ones who we thought would always be there
But one more word and I'll simply break with the passing of the time
Growing up is not a trap, but a simple crime

So save me a piece of our photograph
Put together over the years
Well I'm far from gone from what I count on
And I lost all my fears
But believe me when I say I didn't wanna end this way

It's kind of funny how once we've gone away
The world goes on forgetting all that we've made
but when my bridges are burned
and my lessons are learned
tell me why oh why am i so concerned?

So save me a piece of our photograph
Put together over the years
Well I'm far from gone from what I count on
And I lost all my fears
But believe me when I say I didn't wanna end this way

This is what we'll miss
14 years since we were kids
I want it to be just like the movies
The real stories behind our memories
Do you see the same sun that I am looking for?
Oh California's, looking for you
Oh California’s, looking for you

AJ Perdomo: So save me a piece of our photograph
Put together over the years
Well I'm far from gone from what I count on
And I lost all my fears
But believe me when I say I didn't wanna end this way
