about

A Victim of Good Times Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A Victim Of Good Times have been playing in the Philadelphia scene for two years now, creating live show mirages of bumper Nash skateboards, knee scrapes and the backseat of your parents’ borrowed car. Drawing on 90s indie-rock mainstays like Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, Modest Mouse and Sunny Day Real Estate, the band has just finished recording their first full length album, The Full Catastrophe. ... more

Track Name: Loyalton
I’m breathing for reasons for nothing but holding on.
If you don’t notice me I don’t exist.
I’m sunny I’m funny I’m nature significant.
The world keeps spinning away from me quick.

You don’t see.
You don’t see me.

Drive in your car but you wouldn’t stop for me.
I don’t know how it’ll all end.
Cause you’ll always be the big city
And I’ll always be Loyalton.

You’re leaving for reasons no other than golden gates.
You never did seem to like my simple face.
The glamour and glitz of that town down the road aways.
I’m sure that that’s where you’re going to find your place

Please don’t leave.
Don’t leave me.

Drive in your car but you wouldn’t stop for me.
I don’t know how it’ll all end.
Because you’ll always be the big city
And I’ll always be Loyalton.
Track Name: So Nice
It’s been so long.
Since you told us no.
And I can’t help but fell that you let me down.
And I can’t help feel that you let me go.
It’s all good.

It’s so good. (Feeling so nice.)

And It’s been so hard.
Believing no no no.
And I can’t help feel like you let me down.
And I can’t help feeling like you strung me on.
So Good.
It’s so good. (Feeling so nice.)
Track Name: The Good Life
Going to Richmond in the rain.
Packing my bags ain’t saying a thing.
Cause she’s gone and didn’t say why.
Blind birds have trouble flying.

With your heat lying close to me.
By 30 I thought that I’d have it all figured out now.

Going to Philly in the sun.
Get back to where I know someone.
Cause it’d kill me to see you around.
My friends they all see you about.

Without your heat lying close to me.
We were young, we were good, we have it all figured out now.

Wave wave wave goodbye.
To the good good good good life.
Track Name: Red Red Red
The fear it makes me blinded.
They say the whole world ends.
I don’t buy it.

Because the first one out is the first that’s gone.
The first one out is a hard first love.

You can cheers your glass
To good times again.
Then feel the wrath of what’s inside of it.

Because the first one out is the first that’s gone.
The first one out is a hard first love.

Red red red.

And when the red red red
Sun’s shinning
We’ll leave the past to the past
And you’ll be mine again
If we wade out
And get behind it
Track Name: No Fooling
Want to figure out.
Trying to stay clean.
While my teeth are falling out in every single dream.
Chase the happy.
Drive the sad away.
But it’s raining blue and smiles are swimming up stream.

Trying to figure out.
What it means to me.

You’re not going anywhere.
What it means to me.
You were never really real.
Just disappear.

It’s impossible.
Fiction 101.
Get your stories straight.
But you’re not fooling anyone.
It’s in production.
B-movie superstar.
Heavily celebrated.
You’re not fooling anyone.

Trying to figure out.
What it means to me.

You’re not going anywhere.
What it means to me.
You were never really real.
Just disappear.

It’s impossible.
Fiction 101.
Get your stories straight.
But you’re not fooling anyone.
It’s in production.
B-movie superstar.
Heavily celebrated.
You’re not fooling anyone.

Trying to figure out.
What it means to me.

You know.
