about

The Planes Brooklyn, New York

In a big, dirty city full of trend-chasers and bandwagon-riders, The Planes stand up for the things that are, refreshingly, always cool and relevant and fun. Three-minute pop songs. Analog recording equipment. The unmistakable sound, and the visceral pleasures, of banging on a Fender guitar hooked up to a tube amp. ... more

Track Name: Red Shift
A groundskeeper in a potter's field,
Charcoal mounds of gold,
What does it matter to a distant star,
If the Earth is dead and cold?

Now Charlie don't surf and Lenin don't spar,
All the sons left to fight in the Libyan war,
Move it far, burn out hard,
Just like you're a red star.
Track Name: Stick Around
I learned to fly just to meet you,
You're always up there in the clouds,
But I got caught up with other things,
Forgot to wax my weary wings,
And I collapsed into the ground.

I learned a language just to speak to you,
And I grew accustomed to the sound,
But now I'm talking to myself,
As if I don't need no one else,
I kinda wish you'd stick around.

But when the drawing of your breath,
Prepares the words you cannot say,
When you know it isn't true love,
You might as well walk away,
But there's a knowing in your eyes,
That makes me ride the bus today,
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger,
At least that's what they say.

And when all the words you speak,
Seem to sound a bit cliché,
You got me back and now we're even,
You might as well walk away,
But there's a knowing in your eyes,
That makes me ride the bus today,
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger,
At least that's what they say.
Track Name: The Box
All your bad behavior,
Is gonna land you in the box,
All your borrowed footprints, yeah yeah,
Are gonna track you 'round the block,
You can wear the bushy tail,
But you'll never be the fox,
All your bad behavior, yeah yeah,
Is gonna land you in the box.

Now you're good for nothing,
We're gonna put you in the box,
I can promise one thing, yeah yeah,
You've run out of luck,
You can wear the bushy tail,
But you'll never be the fox,
All your bad behavior,
Is gonna land you in the box.
Track Name: ATMs
I've been wondering where you've been,
Waiting around for the ATMs,
Every time I see you, I want to see you again,
You remembered the cash, but don't forget about time.

Don't forget about time,
Don't forget about time.

Through the gate and off to find your friends,
And I hope this hit doesn't last that long,
I blew my cover with a Freudian slip,
You remembered the cash, I can't forget about your thighs.

Don't forget about time,
Don't forget about time.
No!

I've been wondering where you've been,
I've been wondering where you've been,
I've been wondering where you've been,
I've been wondering where you've been,
(You remembered the cash, but don't forget about time)

Don't forget about time,
Don't forget about time.
Track Name: College Crush
Met you on the way to class,
Didn't have the guts to call,
Left here for a summer job,
See you back again in fall,
I saw you at Pleasant Street,
I saw you at the Hampshire Mall,
And if you're looking for some company,
Come see me at the dining hall.

I heard a rumor that Prof was pissed,
Cause you were an absentee.

Your roommate got the props for covering,
And now you're on the party scene,
I'm in the kitchen, bartending,
Won't you come and talk to me?

Wasted back at the dorms,
Leaning up against the wall,
Your number in my hand again,
But will I have the guts to call?
I saw you at the library,
I saw you at the winter ball,
And if you're looking for some company,
Come find me at the dining hall.

I heard a rumor that Prof was pissed,
Cause you were an absentee.

Your roommate got the props for covering,
And now you're on the party scene,
I'm in the kitchen, bartending,
Won't you come and talk to me?
I'm in the kitchen, bartending,
And I'm not saying anything...
I'm in the kitchen, bartending,
Won't you come and talk to me?
Won't you come and talk to me?
Won't you come and talk to me?
Track Name: Trident
You had the angle, didn't you?
To take us for granted,
And raise the rent, oh no,
You got the Trident,
To block out the booze,
You watch the radar,
And I'll write the news.

Thought you had made it, didn't you?
So you tore up the rider,
And walked away, oh no,
You want a fire,
But we got the fuse,
So you watch the radar,
And I'll write the news.

Is there someplace for me?
Is it out there for free?
It's getting late now,
I had better leave,
Is there someplace for me?

You had the angle, didn't you?
To twist out the candle,
And wreck the 'Wick, oh no,
You want a fire,
But we got the fuse,
So you watch the radar,
And I'll write the news.

You watch the radar,
Good for you,
You watch the radar,
And I'll write the news.
Track Name: River
The sun was out and I was flying,
I didn't know if this would last for long,
We have a love that's free and wild,
But I don't know if you and I belong,
You are here,
And then,
You're gone.

Everything that you want,
And everything that I need...
Where the water takes me,
Is where the river leads,
And if it falls apart,
It doesn't matter much to me,
'Cause I know I won't waste it,
'Cause I don't think it's free.

The sun was out and I was blinded,
Laying blissfully in a field of weed,
Let's cut the cord and sink the island,
Underwater we will learn to breathe,
Like eels,
Beneath,
The sea.

Everything that you want,
And everything that I need...
Where the water takes me,
Is where the river leads,
And if it falls apart,
It doesn't matter much to me,
'Cause I know I won't waste it,
'Cause I don't think it's free.

Everything that you want,
And everything that I need...
Where the water takes me,
Is where the river leads,
And if it falls apart,
It doesn't matter much to me,
'Cause I know I won't waste it,
'Cause I don't think it's free.
Track Name: Meditation '17
I am just a little secret that you keep,
I am just a deviant on business trips,
I am just a phonograph, the needle you drop in,
I am just a sewer rat, you've draped in leopard skin.

I want to be a little secret, you keep,
I want to be a deviant, everyday,
I want to be the pagan temple where you pray,
I want to be the gutter where you drink yourself away.

(go away)
