about

Awfully Apeelin' is The Happy Fits' debut EP, recorded and mixed by Matt Maroulakos at The Den Recording Studios in Paterson, NJ in August 2016. The EP was self-produced by guitarist Ross Monteith and cellist Calvin Langman, with Luke Davis on drums. By replacing the traditional electric bass with an acoustic cello, The Fits create a new sound, mixing the folk sounds of The Lumineers with the rocking guitar riffs of The Killers. A week after its release, their single "While You Fade Away" rocketed to #5 of Spotify's Top 50 Viral USA Chart and #17 on Spotify's Top 50 Viral Global Chart.

Track Name: Too Late
Intro:
Move your hips along with the music.
Lick your lips but don’t over-do it.
Bend your knees along with the summer.
Keep your beat but don’t kill the drummer.

It’s true. I wanna be with you tonight, but I’m a little too late.

Verse:
Just be calm and move with the season.
Winter’s gone and so has your reason.
Daisies bloom and so will desire.
Keep your cool and blow out the fire.

True, I wanna be with you tonight, but I’m a little too late.
I’m a little too late. X2 Too late x2

Chorus 1:
I could be whole if I didn’t know x2
About the birdies and the bees and the bushes.
Eighteen came around and it was somewhat malicious.
Everybody loses control.
I’m a little scared of my soul.
Find her, keep her, don’t you go near or cheat her.
Just you believe that you born enough.

Chorus 2:
I could be whole if I didn’t know x2
About the dangers of
Foreign stock exchanges from
Candy-ridden strangers-
I just wanna be with you.
I wanna be with you tonight, but I’m a little too late.

Guitar Solo
Verse 1
Chorus 1:
I could be whole if I didn’t know x2
About the cooties and the creeps they commission.
Even when it dirty I would find it delicious.
Everybody loses control.
I’m a little scared of my soul.
Find her, keep her, don’t you go near or cheat her.
Just you believe that you born enough.

Chorus 2:
I could be whole if I didn’t know. I could be whole if I didn’t go
Out passin’ free notes with
All the secrets we know from
Half-bred Filipinos-
I just wanna be with you.
I wanna be with you tonight, but I’m a little too late.
Track Name: While You Fade Away
Verse 1:
Starin’ at the ground, gonna get much better,
But you’re thinkin to yourself bout it every day.
Starin’ in the clouds is a big bright future,
But you’re never gonna get it if you’re never get to say:
(I got that love. I got that love.)

Chorus:
I got that love, little love that you leave me while you fade away.
Inside my heart is a drum that is beating for you every single day.

Verse 2:
Bendin’ over backwards, nobody want no bruises,
But she knows how to see right through it.
You change but it’s not enough. You change but you’ll never know, what
She wants, what you want, what she needs, what you need, (you’ll never know);
She wants, what you want, what she needs, what you need, (you’ll never know);
She wants, what you need, and you need.

Chorus

Verse 3:
Rollin’, rollin’ through all of the noises
You make inside of your mind.
Forget all that visible lust, that metaphysical trust; what you trying find?
Always the hardest, and always the rightest, they all gotta stand for the same damn thing.

Chorus x2

Bridge:
You wanted that fever, oh now boy you got it.
So taste it, don’t waste it, all you thought wanted.

For your love I'm beggin' you please;
I got chains at your door and need a release.

Chorus x2
Track Name: Dirty Imbecile
Verse 1:
If I’m so smart and I’m so pretty,
Damn this town and damn this city.
You never give me anything that I want.

No one seems to really care.
They're just wholly unaware
Of all the blood and sweat I cry before dawn.

Bridge:
But you won’t understand
All the things that I am
Cause' I’m crazy in just too many ways.

But I get that little feel
When my heart starts beating; lungs stop breathing;
All my fibers say to run away.

Chorus:
Count my little scars, I’ve got dozens down inside
I come complete and invincible, behind my dirty imbecile.
All the things I’ve tried, boy: be cute, be dumb, be wise, be young.
So don’t tell me what to fear in the darkness in this atmosphere.

Verse:
Love my mum and love my daddy
Sure they messed me up but that is
Voices that they left inside of my head.

Darling, dearest, don’t you see
I’m tough, I’m smart, I’m bourgeois?
And I’ll play out this lie until we’re all dead.

Bridge
Chorus

Counter-chorus:
Am I good? Is all I could
Enough for you?

I’m so scared
Of when and where
I’ll find the truth.
Track Name: Drink
Verse:
Daytime; you know what you’ve done. Just move along.
Look past the things that you’ve won. Just move along.
Don’t stop at all. Don’t stop at all.
Don’t stop at all for the world.

Chorus:
And I will come down from the fire,
Too aimless to see you were never alive.
And all of the blame in the world
Won’t stop it all; won’t stop at all.
Won’t stop at all for the world.

Verse:
Get through the light of the day. Don’t ever stay.
Throw all your worries away. Don’t ever stay.
Don’t stop at all. Don’t stop at all.
Don’t stop at all for the world.

Chorus:
And I will come down from the fire,
Too aimless to see you were never alive.
And I will place blame on you softly and care for you often at night,
‘Cause darling we would never; darling we would never fight.
Darling we would never; darling we would never fight.

Bridge:
And I never knew; I never knew what you want at all
‘Cause I just don’t know you. I don’t know you;
Know at all; Know at all.

And I never knew, I never knew what would make you stay
‘Cause I haven’t seen you
In a long time; in a long time.
Feel it all; feel it all; feel at all; feel at all; feel at all.

Chorus:
And I will come down from the fire,
Too aimless to see that you were never alive.
And I will place blame on you softly and care for you often at night,
Cause darling I would never, darling I would never fight.

And I will come down from the fire,
Too aimless to see you were never alive.
And all of the blame in the world
Won’t stop it all; won’t stop it all.
Won’t stop at all for the world.

Darling, drink to the world.
Drink up the seas and the rose and the pearls.
Don’t stop at all; don’t stop at all; don’t stop at all for the world.

Outro:
Daytime; you know what you’ve done. Just move along.
Look past the things that you’ve won. Just move along.
Track Name: Right Through
Five foot two I fell in love with you
Smaller than a stone but still can break your bones
You still can break your bones

I believe it was because of you
Times were rollin and I did not know what to do
No, I didn’t know what to do.

But I’ll follow you right through
And you showed me that it’s true

Six foot two I fell in love with you.
Taller than an oak tree but you still can’t break free
You still cannot break free

I believe it was because of you
Climbin up a road where no one seems to go
Yeah, where no one seems to go.

And I follow you right through
And you showed me that it’s true.
And I follow you right through
And you just sat there and told me what to do

Darlin’ I’ve been scared, oh I’ve been scared, but nothing scares me quite like you
Cuz heaven’s just a place, it’s just a place, it’s just a place if not for you
Sure you won’t believe, you won’t believe, the poetry I spelt for you
But down inside my brain, inside my brain, I know it’s true
