about

The Pregnant Rollerskates Fullerton, California

After unsuccessfully recruiting musicians for the band, TPR maintained a simple two man line-up, with brothers Mauricio (Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards) and Gabriel (Drums) exploring different styles of music, and incorporating the the techniques of looping guitar and keyboard parts to layer a soundscape that is unique to every show they play. ... more

Track Name: For You, I Will
I've grown tired of my place out here
Rest assure that you're still home
Living all alone with ghosts
And I wish I was the most out there
But you're too closed to find your place and care

All these places and disgraces
Leaving all your hopes behind
Maybe you're just there for me
Since you have nowhere else to be
And leading me to somewhere sadly where I don't think I belong

Chorus:
But I was born when we first me
In the places where I'll regret
Hold me tight when it gets dark
And I'll lead you there with an only spark
For me to hold you still, but for you, I will

All the glistens in your eyes
They speak louder than an abstract mime
Where we cross our parallels
And I'll only wish you well when you start to become
A little more like what you saw in me

Chorus:
But I was born when we first me
In the places where I'll regret
Hold me tight when it gets dark
And I'll lead you there with an only spark
For me to hold you still, but for you, I will
Track Name: The Same Now
Well I'm sitting by this train track
Waiting for the sun to come back up for you
And only time will tell

Like a pretty maiden's eyes
Sinking little lover's ships
I'd be up against all I'd ever seen

Well I've gone home and my loneliness is traveling through my bones
I wish that I was leaving and it's a shame that I have grown
Since I've been tired of the leaves changing and talking to my ghosts
If I can't be the same now then I guess I'll never know

If we're rolling through desires and a journey with no end
I'll declare myself to mine my thoughts away

And if you rest assure again
Like a diamond on your wire
Then I've been struck by apophenia, selling meaning out

I've come undone by all the ins and outs that I have strung
And your tear drops shake me more than a black hat's loaded gun
As the lawyers teach me how to be their one and only favorite son
If I can't be the same now, then I guess they all have won

But I can't hide and escape from this lovely, truthful tribe
As I mingle with the tenure of your weary, starry sky
You can forget the melodramas with a whisper as you die
If I can't be the same now, then I guess I'll have to lie
Track Name: Back Home
I'll take a walk way down south
If it'll mean that I'll get to you

We'll make amends by our picket fence
And then circle the sun if you

Chorus:
Say you'll love me when you come back home
Say you'll love me when you come back home

And if you're close, I'll bury your toes
In the sands that brought you here

And if you're words are all I ever heard
I'd be fine if all I'd hear is you

Chorus:
Say you'll love me when you come back home
Say you'll love me when you come back home

Bridge:
But I don't know if I'm getting closer
To closing off my distance
Colored feathers and stormy weathers
Will define our coexistence

Chorus:
Say you'll love me when you come back home
Say you'll love me when you come back home
Say you'll love me when you come back home
Say you'll love me when you come back home
Track Name: Zack's Reading
It's set in closer to my eyes
With you just sleeping there
How I wish I could compromise with you

And if it's always understood
It's also always there
And then I know I'm out for good with you

You just notice as I speak
As I'm too crazy for
The things that make you come between you and me

And I just know that I'm no good
Tell me one decision
And then I know I'm out of the woods from you

But you're just taking mine
You're just leaving high and dry
And I'm not closer to the things that make you operate like you do

And I'm just standing there
As you're just going where you go
And all of this I find, God I wish I knew what was going on inside

This is not where I belong
With voices that I came across
But only wished that I'd be wrong again

And you're just talking with your lines
And if it's closer too
All the things I wish that I could hide from you

With your just sleeping there
And I'm just standing face to face
With all we know that's working
And I don't know if it's with you who I can anymore

And you're just sleeping there
Standing with your wavy hair
And all of this I find
God, I wish I knew what was going on inside

Going on inside
God, I wish I knew what was going on inside
Track Name: What You Mean To Me
I start talking in my sleep now
Saying what I can’t to you
Mandatory cab rides
But it’s coming through, it’s coming though in twos

And if the skies are waiting for you
To bury all your tears and dreams
The furtherest star are the ones to aim for
Until you realize, the shooting ones aren’t seen
And you say

Chorus
“If I hold you, would you stay here,
Stay another day with me?”
I’ve grown tired of all the prophets and the psychics
Telling me, what they can’t easily see, which is what you mean to me

Abiding universality
The generic man in me
The lawless coming of devastation
I’ll be your one way out if you’re the serpent to my seed

Casting spells of political elements
Believe a counterfeit bride too
Begging saints of Babylon
To reveal if the eighth mountain was made for you
But you just said

Chorus
“If I hold you, would you stay here,
Stay another day with me?”
I’ve grown tired of all the prophets and the psychics
Telling me, what they can’t easily see, which is what you mean to me

Bridge
Well they said we wouldnt make it
But I’ve seen balloon parades make it though a road of blades
And they said it wouldn’t matter
While they passed color bars in eleven shades of grey

Riding through a tortured bottle
Still believing truths I speak
But I forget who I’m convincing
Embracing presage, of the last seventy weeks
But you said

Chorus
“If I hold you, would you stay here,
Stay another day with me?”
I’ve grown tired of all the prophets and the psychics
Telling me, what they can’t easily see, which is what you mean to me
Track Name: Jukebox No. 5
Save your song for somebody else
Because I don't know your words anymore

And you're so ambitious
You would even crawl to the stars if you had to

You say that nothing's out of you're reach
Like anything ever was

The sky is dark except for some bright lines above
So close your eyes and make a wish

So close your eyes and make a wish
Close your eyes and make a wish
You're all alone so you might as well sit tight
And wish yourself out of this night

You're on your mound and no one could ever knock you down
But you're still the girl with the dirty mouth

Tie your shoes and fix the back of your dress
And how could someone not say enough

And how could someone not say enough
And how could someone not say enough
When all you are is just the words that I hear
Then I guess I'm just a pair of ears

But you're smile is all I need to see
Yes, you're smile is all I ever really need to see
You're mentally gone but as long as you're here that's all that matters
Since you don't care it'll just shatter
Track Name: If You Wanted
The tone of your voice is inviting
Your actions, they seem like they're fighting
The urge to stay here and talk it out

But if you wanted, oh if you wanted
We could wait until the clouds passed by
Please don't take me out of your sight

Hold me closer but not too close
Because I'm afraid to get too attached
I'd rather say that I was than to say I've never been

But go ahead and just leave me right now
Go ahead and just leave me right now
Go ahead and just leave me right now
Track Name: Redbox
Happiness is what I need from you
Is it so much to ask
Frustrated is all I get from you
Seems my question was too much

Love is what we all could use right now
Open up and say you care
Don't hate the fact that you're by yourself tonight
Someone out there needs you bad

Disguise the way you really feel
Don't you dare let me figure you out
It's nice when you say that we are real
Because counterfeit thoughts are not allowed

Loneliness cannot be felt by two
So how can i feel this way around you
And if we're meant to share this measly place
Maybe my solitude will erase

But you're redbox is calling you
You're redbox is calling you
You're redbox is calling you
You're redbox is calling you
Track Name: Joy Ride
I'll turn you on when I sit down inside
I'll back you up so we can go for a ride
Don't let me down because I need to get there real soon

And if you stall that doesn't make sense
Because you've automatically passed the test
But shine your highlights out on me when it gets dark

Chorus:
Despite what it might seem to be
Ten years gone and I couldn't see me with another

When it's late you get me there safe
Even though we could roll over this place
I'm doing fine even though you break down sometimes

Chorus:
Inside you were all that I need to know
Make it right so we take it real slow

Still inside you're such a disaster
I only wish I could get there faster
But I'll wait just as long as we're in the same lane
But i'll wait just as long as we're in the same lane
