about

Late Kids is a name given to those born in the early half of the millennial generation. Growing up alongside the internet and inundated with content, these kids have lived well aware of their worldly inconsequence while simultaneously being told by their parents and the illustrious Mr. Rogers that they are someone special. The members of Rossonian are all Late Kids themselves. In the band's second record entitled, "Late Kids", they are straddling this dichotomy expressing their playful frustrations and wrestling with the living ghosts of their Middle American, suburban upbringing.

Track Name: Late Kids
Babies in sunglasses on birthday cards,
Hey Dad, thank you for the money,
One black velvet and a book of stamps,
I'm licking pens and tearing paper,

Ooo, I'm through,

Pouring alcohol on every line,
'Cause that's how everybody knew me,
One kiss, lipstick and forget me not,
Late kids go to California,
Don't ya,

We're late kids,
We're not gonna make it,

Ooo, I'm through
Track Name: In The Summer
CHORUS
I think everybody has more fun,
In the summer,
Don't sweat being star-crossed, baby,
With your lover,

Whoa,
In the summer,

VERSE
So what's another word,
For living sweetly,
Inside your dreams?
'Cause we're alive inside and out,
Just like the leaves,
When they're still green,

CHORUS

VERSE
Our sweat mixed with the sea,
Ferments a sweet wine,
Almost holy,
Under the lusty sun our bodies shine,
And so your eyes.

CHORUS

OUTRO
We're living bacchanalia,
Hey, we're bacchanal
Track Name: Stressed Out
You're so stressed out,
Baby, so stressed out,

I've never had a shred of a doubt,
Well, that is until now,
I'm sick of playing along,
I know you think you're right and I'm wrong,
But you've prepared my cage,
And I am missing my habitat,

CHORUS
You're creating an inverse evolution,
You wanna see me,
Down on all fours,
Teach the primate he's yours,

You're so stressed out,
Baby, so stressed out,

If I put you down,
Would you come around,
I seldom play the patriot but,
If your greatest need,
Is a sadists plead,
Somehow I would muster the pride,
Take your love in stride,
And give a good chest beating,

CHORUS

OUTRO
You're the scientist,
Of my empty fist,
You wanna see me,
Take my tenderness,
Perform experiments,
You wanna bleed me,
Track Name: The Truth
VERSE
When they gave you the chair,
You took my bed,
Left a ghost in the air,
Without a head,
The joker floats like perfume,
Up through my vent,
So I gave him your room,
Now, he pays the rent

PRE-CHORUS
Day-Glo,
Sunshine,
Outside on the lawn,
Slow-mo,
It's crazy,
But you never know,

CHORUS
I won't ever tell the truth,
No, I won't ever tell the truth,

VERSE
When we hitchhiked across,
The 48,
I had no memory of loss,
Just a slate,
The cleanest slate,
Now I thumb through the halls,
The house is cold,
You're soul is seeping through the walls,
And it's getting old,

PRE-CHORUS
CHORUS

BRIDGE
The truth

VERSE
Sometimes I go to the mall,
When it rains,
I have a pretzel and scrawl,
Out the names,
Out all the names,
But my hand starts shaking when I try,
To carve the shapes,
Of all the letters in goodbye,
So I leave some scrapes,
Just a couple scrapes,

PRECHORUS
CHORUS
BRIDGE
Track Name: Sidewalks
VERSE
Elephants run and the whole world shakes,
Portrait falls down and the piano key breaks,
Um,

Bought a tract house inside a strip mall,
Shared the good word on a men's room stall,
Where they read it all,
They read it all,

CHORUS
When we grew up in the 'burbs,
Sidewalks seemed so far away,
And everyday was any day,
Destinations on the run,
Always staying in one place,
It seems to me we're family,

VERSE
Grandma's got meth and a new mood ring,
Her metal detector is her favorite thing,
Um

Have another baby,
Feed it natural foods,
Try online dating,
Look for natural dudes,
With a jeep,

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Being from a boundary,
Effects everything I see,
Coming up from the boundary,
It means everything to me,

CHORUS
