about

The Racer Monroe, New York

The Racer (formerly known as Stuedabakerbrown) is a rare incarnation of the modern independent band – one that matches its creativity and pop sensibility equally with determination and business smarts. They bring the type of kinetic energy to the music scene that can only grow naturally from a group of true friends sharing a common passion. ... more

Track Name: The Racer - Gremlins
We go down
And on our way
I feel a change in me

The sun will fall
The lights spark on
And who I was is long, long, gone

We go down
To Gotham’s rage
Strength awakes in me

Over water drift the masses
In the search for something more
Through the tunnels their arriving holding hope

Endless Runner
The empire island waits for us
Slowly stirring
Here in the city that we love
She tells me I’m enough

We go down
Fled our cage
We want inside the screen

Know the ground we walk is sacred
Where the great mainlands divide
Over water, transformation while we burst

Endless Runner
The empire island waits for us
Slowly stirring
Here in the city that we love

We stand here waiting to fly
Knowing I’m likely to fall
I will fall
She said it’s the only way

The city walls are at your feet
The hall of glass is where we'll meet
I still believe there’s more to prove
All that remains is what we do

The city lights, the siren screams
Another try for worlds unseen
For better days for me and you
For better lives than what we knew
Track Name: The Racer - Rewinder
Where are we going?
Where do we go?
No one can tell you
Nobody knows

Take some time now
While we’re allowed
While we glow
Tell me somehow
May the young crowd not grow old

So I said maybe
Maybe we’ll remember no one
But I don’t want to be forgotten
You and I must never change

Reckless and hopeful
The tireless choose
The roads that we drive on
The time I taught you

If they find out
Where we lie now
We can run
Last night in town
Leave there no doubt
It has begun

So I said maybe
Maybe we’ll remember no one
But I don’t want to be forgotten
You and I must never change

So tell me sweet thing
Tell me where we will be going
It’s hard enough to leave not knowing
Something's never wash away
So won’t you take me away?

If we’d only known
What we know now
Can you still recall?
Do you hear the sound?
Voices bound by joy
Hear them echo out
Over radios
May they reach you now
Track Name: The Racer - Divide (Accents cover)
The shelter I have is not enough for where we are
The moon hides its face every night, afraid to die
The calendar tells us to wait inside our cage
I'll laugh as they send me to hell for what I've done

The frames on the walls they come right down
And the light seeping through warms the ground

We carried ourselves to the rooms we were born in
But the doctors had nothing to say on a planned escape
I followed a hole in the earth to wait it out
The flames came to eat us alive and here we are

The frames on the walls they come right down
And the light seeping through warms the ground
The lines in the sand are all that's left
Of our divided land, so now we rest
Track Name: Accents - Down Down Down
Someday, babe, we're gonna win this war
We'll have enough and never ask for more
Someway, babe, we're gonna take things slow
If you're leavin', darlin', won't you let me know?

The silence around will calm us down
When the blood in my mouth is pouring out

Pin me down, down, down if I feel like I'm losin' you
Take me down, down, down if I feel like I'm losin' you

Someday, babe, I'm gonna win this war
We'll build a life out of an open door
Someway I am gonna take things slow
If I'm leavin', darlin', I will let you know
Track Name: Accents - Running Wild
I was out of reach
(But I was close to you)
I felt an urgency
(And that was nothing new)
'Cus time will fly or keep you guessing

Then I found my fears
(I think I saw them too)
I left them underground
(I dug that hole with you)
And our heads ran wild...

You carried your own weight before you fell for me
And you lost yourself in rhythm with a dying beat
You celebrated loneliness 'cus it's sometimes what we need
Looking back, we did all that we had to

So now you're all I need
(And now I sleep alright)
You stole my heart
(I let a feeling die)
'Cus time will always leave you waiting

I was on my feet
(And I had left the ground)
I planted all my seeds
(I let the rain fall down)
And our heads ran wild...
Track Name: Accents - Legends (The Racer cover)
Seems like fun we'd make in these moments
No one knew it change our lives
At times it felt like it had been broken
But keeping faith we held on tight

And when we play downtown
We’ll watch our sins fall on the floor

These thin walls knew all our first lines
But quick to tell we'd wish to hide
It wasn't long till our first time
Nervous hands unveil what we'd write

They'd never know
All we'd risk and throw, to the wind

Aint it crazy how things turn out as they do
You and I both know that I, I was always meant for you
The different names we were called, they gave us a chance to prove
May your heart always reside in the golden hours of youth

But when we go downtown
We knew that soon we would feel alright

Aint it crazy how things turn out like they do
You and I both know that I, I was always meant for you
All the different names we were called by those who knew
May your heart always reside in the dancing days of youth

You and I both know that I, I was always meant for you
