about

We Are The Union Detroit

Unhappy with the current state of ska music, We Are The Union decided to stick out their own necks and tried to change things for the better in the summer of 2005. Instead of following typical ska punk conventions, WATU takes a harder-nosed approach to the genre. With influences across the board, they rage with the best of them while still retaining a heightened sense of melody. ... more

Track Name: Smash This Machine
Smash this machine

I'm scared
I'm terrified
Try to guess where lightning strikes
Welcome to my landmine life

This is too familiar
Get me off my knees
I know I have it in me to
Smash this machine

I'm scared
I'm terrified
Dodged the bullet, I'll be fine
Welcome to me landmine life

Terrified
But I'll keep moving on
Terrified
I'll sing this 'til my voice is gone
Terrified
I've got matches and a skyline
Terrified
I'll just keep moving on
Track Name: Debris
There's something wrong here
Communication breakdown
The calendar was counting x's
But I waited for you to come around
Twisted tongues are all we have in common now

You could walk alone
But why would you just ignore the fading eyes and warning signs?
You could walk alone
You could walk alone, but why would you?

Now there's a divide here
Words have failed us now
Two sides to this matchstick line
Life on a fence won't make this right
So I'll watch myself explode tonight

You could walk alone
But why would you just ignore the fading eyes and warning signs?
You could walk alone
You could walk alone, but why would you?
Why would you?

Why would you turn your back on me?
A whirlwind of defensive debris
This unfocused feeling
Spits words with no meaning

Turn your back on me
A whirlwind of defensive debris
This unfocused feeling
Spits words with no meaning

Now this cloud hangs over our heads tonight
And I don't know what we are
Now this cloud hangs over our heads tonight
But I'll hold out for things to be alright

You could walk alone
But why would you just ignore the fading eyes and warning signs?
You could walk alone
You could walk alone
Increase the distance just to pass the time
You could, you could walk alone, but why would you?

There's something wrong here
