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: Cool With Me
Yeah if it’s cool with you I’ll take the long walk home
No it’s alright with me, I prefer to be alone
Actually if you don’t mind I could use the company
I have an extra hoodie if you want you can walk with me

You didn’t
You didn’t have to

Lived here my whole life I think it’s time for change
Don’t know why but still tonight it feels so strange
Maybe you could help me with all the things I lack
You and me forever, you always had my back

You didn’t
You didn’t have to

And if it’s cool with you, then it’s cool with me
Track Name: Evening Fires
I wish I lived
A hundred years ago
I wouldn’t be afraid
Afraid of what I know

On the loud speaker “Car 54 where are?!”
Lit the evening fires on the hood of my car

I want to be a flare
I want to be the smell of your hair
The hot hot summer rain
Guess I shouldn’t complain

On the loud speaker “Car 54 where are?!”
Lit the evening fires on the hood of my car
You were right when you said I’m just a memory
If you check our old haunts that’s where I’ll be
Track Name: Lighter Shade of Blue
Saturday morning can’t come too soon
Where’d you go Captain Lou?
I can ride faster than you
She didn’t invite me this year (that’s alright)
Maybe I’ll get it next year

All these things I knew
Make me a lighter shade of blue

Call me Mr. King Rundown-Jim
She has got her eyes on him
Oh, I didn’t know you had a pool
Your parents aren’t home today?
Well then I’ll meet you after school

All these things I do
Make me a lighter shade of blue
Track Name: Spirit Summer
Pack it up it’s the spirit summer
Longest one I can remember
Cause when winter comes I’m good as north
Let the wildfire burn till then

It’s the spirit summer

Not even this can last forever
Try you might but it still won’t
A life well lived is like a receipt for just straight living
Say you do but you really don’t

It’s the spirit summer
Track Name: Balloons
You, the day is long in June
Longing out of doom
Myself I will include

We, revel in the heat
Admitting out defeat
Shake it off with me

Few, once upon a moon
Tonight we’re all in bloom
The light is soft and blue

Gone, mistress and her songs
Turn the music off
Return to where you were

Gone away again
Track Name: Maybe, Sure
Slow it down
Take your time
Everything is already fine

Keep your eyes
Off the ball
Maybe we’ll see each other this fall

What you taught
Maybe it’s wrong
Maybe we’ll see each other this fall
Track Name: Red Red Red
The fear it made me blinded
They say the whole world ends
I don’t buy it

The first one out is the first one gone
The first one out is a hard first love
The first one out is the first that’s gone
The first one out and she’s gone

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

The first one out is the first one gone
The first one out is a hard first love
The first one out is the first that’s gone
The first one out and she’s gone

Red, red, red

When the red red red sun’s shining
We’ll leave the past to the past
And you’ll be mine again
Track Name: Loyalton
I’m breathing for nothing
It’s seeming 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

Please don’t leave
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 nothing its seeming
But golden gates
You never did seem to like my simple face
The glamour and glitz of that town down the road a ways
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
Cause you’ll always be the big city
And I’ll always be Loyalton

Please don’t leave
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
Track Name: Theme to an 80's Movie
The morning mist is grey and like a dream to me
Orange lights aglow on the suburban streets
Win, lose, love, loss fail and repeat repeat
When your phone doesn’t ring you’ll know it was me

Win lose love loss fail repeat repeat
Win lose love loss fail

They should write a book on how to handle these things
Lipstick, cigarettes and teenage promise rings
Don’t call, don’t write, idle at the starting line
No worries, don’t concern everything here is fine

Win lose love loss fail repeat repeat
Win lose love loss fail
