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: Passengers (Intro)
See the man, see the star of life
Hear the waves, as the day replaces night
Blurring out of sight

See the cameras that pan the scene
Casting light off the Utah horns and keys
Lying next to me
Track Name: Impact
Everything must end but how could you?
No one can escape the final cue
Will all that I have loved be left behind?
If we meet again, along the line

Then I don’t mind
I don’t mind

Gravity and force decide our fate

They impact here upon the palisades
A memory of your hand it comes to mind
Thinking of the way it folds in mine

We need more time

Is there a way out?
Is there a way out of here?
Is there a way out?
Is there a way out of here?

Let me know
Is that light shining on my face, where we go?
Memories flash, time slows, as we wait, the stories told
There’s a child waving, always safe, the garden grows
God I know I will find a way, if there’s a way out
If there’s a way out, a way out
If there’s a way out of here
Track Name: Flashdance
Say if it’s too late
Is there a time and place?
In a vacant sea
With words you’d never speak

You’re all I knew
The first I knew/It’s all do new
You’re the ghost I hope to see

Will we ever meet?
Floating endlessly
Or does the ground beneath
Hold us selfishly?

You’re all I knew
It’s all so new
You’re the ghost I hope to see

We’re not over when we alter
It feels so cold just say you’ll come for me
Say you’ll come for me
Track Name: Settle
They don’t like the way we ride
To make it home, we race the night
Back to the place we thought we knew
Now every night I swear I’ll see it through
Without belief from you

You sit in judgment of a life
That is not yours; you have no right
But I don’t blame you for your view
The system’s claimed you, now you’re
Trained to do
That which is approved

Settle, settle
Everybody wants to but you won’t
Settle, settle

Does my freedom remind you, of what you held only in youth?
You tell yourself that I’m confused
Yet every night I swear I’ll see it through
For I believe, I choose

Settle, settle
Everybody wants to but you won’t
Settle, settle

Now I don’t want to know
Don’t tell me where to go

Tell me, who are you to tell them how?
Tell me, who are you to tear them down?
Tell me who are you?
Yeah who the hell are you?
Track Name: The Fire
Be my guide and show the way
I’m in the tide I can’t escape

The first night we shared a bed
Your hands resting on my head
Better days you made me see
How you made me once believe
In the fire me

Thinking distance eases pain
We give in the easy way

So now we sleep in separate rooms
Deepen self-inflicted wounds
It feels like we’re wasting time
Feel the questions grow inside
They’ll be better days ahead
If only you could see
There’s a fire in me
Track Name: Celebrate
We don’t miss the indecision
We don’t miss the fear of truth
We don’t miss the wars between us
We don’t miss the weight of you

Oh we were lied to, hell we make
We celebrate you either way
The complications that we face
They’ll be no one remembering you

We won’t miss the anxious feelings
When you groaned
We won’t miss the sound of sighs
We won’t miss the endless fight
No I won’t miss the guilt you thrown around
This is not a home
No I won’t miss the weight we’ve towed

Oh we were lied to, hell we make
We celebrate you either way
The complications that we face
We were meant to rise above where you decay
They’ll be no one remembering you
We rise
Yeah we were meant to rise above where you decay
Track Name: Lost. Love. Art.
And I woke up calmly
Spent a whole hour shaking

I wouldn't let them let me go
I got ten more minutes before I'm gone
I couldn't let them let me go
I got ten more minutes before I'm gone, away

She won't like it when I'm right
He won't like it when I'm right
She won't like it when I'm right
More and more I’m unsure

And I woke up wondering
Spent a lifetime shaking

I won't let them let me go
I got ten more minutes before I'm gone
I can't let them let me go
I got ten more minutes before I'm gone, I’m gone

He won't like it if I'm right
She won't like it if I'm right
They won't like it if I'm right
More and more I’m unsure

Please. No. More. Time.
Track Name: Ivy
Wake up and walk by the TV
See the world change with my eyes
Hours after, there’s no use calling
To know at all we’d have to drive

We saw the lights, heading back to find
Just say your safe tonight

And on the bridge that passes Ivy
Over trains I heard her cry
She was frightened and I was frozen
Did she get to say goodbye

As we fled north, up 95
They came to find
Love say your safe tonight

On two lights they climb, fallen souls now shown the way
Track Name: In Stereo
You know I’ve been waiting
It feels for too long
You say it’s worth saving
But I don’t know if I’m that strong

No I won’t wait
For you to wait
Tonight we find a way

You don’t have to bend, we’ve been alone so long though
You don’t have to bend now we’re alone
Yeah we’ll find a way
A way
Out in the dark we can escape

The stereo is all that’s glowing
There’s not a light on fantasy drive
The tape plays what I’ve recorded
Can’t fast forward or rewind

No I won’t wait
For you to wait
Tonight we find a way

You don’t have to bend, we’ve been alone so long though
You don’t have to bend now we’re alone
Now you’ve got to wear that torn dress home
Tonight I swear we were made to be alone
Yeah we’ll find a way

Even though all the doors are locked we’ll find a way

You’re the one I believe that has helped to see the man I would want to become
How you help when you lift, I am hopeless, adrift
Where the heat meets the cold we are one
When they ask to explain all the choices we made
Let them know this where we began
When I see you tonight
I’m alive, I’m alive
I’m alive when you come in

Don’t let them force you they can never hold you in
Don’t let them force you for they fear when we’ll begin
I want to see you in the rain
Out in the dark we can escape
Track Name: September
Just thought I’d call you up this Monday night, while I had time
I know it’s been too long since I spoke with you
Sometimes I have to work straight through the night to get by
Oh how I miss the lazy nights of June

On woodland road
On woodland road

Starting over is proving harder than I thought, it’s a fight
I walk around with eyes blackened and bruised
I’m making my escape home
Call the crew like old times
We’ll be singing “Jungleland” up to the moon

On woodland road

Say you’re coming home again
Say you’re coming home again
On woodland road

Just thought I’d call you up this Monday night
Track Name: Legends
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
Track Name: Passengers
See the man, see the star of life
Hear the waves, as the day replaces night
Blurring out of sight

See the cameras that pan the scene
Casting light off the Utah horns and keys
Lying next to me

Feel the pull, feel the sense of flight
Hear the voices, a calling, an invite
Hear the song in white

See my friends, see the bridge beneath
High above where the Hudson crosses street
Feels sublime and free

Everyday and every night
That I fall down
It feels like flying under rain

Feel the family the memories saved
See the lights of the skyline they have made
All you’d never trade

Feel at home, feel a warm embrace
Of all the ones you had lost, or been misplaced
Feel the calming grace

Everyday and every night
That I fall down
It feels like flying under rain

The last of the days that I held with you
Were spent in the pain of all our miscues
The winters we’d spend recovering cold
The last words we said but how could we know
The existence of the lives we forget we have seen
How I dream of an age where you’re walking with me
Of all the places and people we knew
The moments I shared in the presence of you I will miss
