about

Vigil and Thieves Kansas City, Missouri

Vigil and Thieves is a Kansas City indie alternative quartet formed in early 2014. Previously described as "grandiose" with a "heartbreaking heaviness," the band has honed in on dynamic and lyrically-driven song structures that have been compared to live poetry.
Neverland embodies every adventure the band has collectively taken part in.

Track Name: hate
Hello what's new?
who are you today?
tell me your secrets
list all the things that you hate

cuz we've all got habits
we're willing to trade
and we've got to live with
the choices we've made

this is real
hate is real

goodbye, nevermind
did you see everything change
tell me the truth this time
do you feel safe?

cuz we've all got feelings
we're willing to fake
and we've got to live with
the choices we've made

this is real
hate is real

don't let them ruin you
don't let them
don't let them
Track Name: come home
Getting stuck and I’m drunk again
Gotta wake up to myself again
When the sun is out,
And I’m not sure what day it is
Baby I’m a little lost
Baby I’m a little lost


I can only smile on purpose
All these things I want
Is it worth it
Well I’d hate to be alone
When it stops working
When it stops working


Stop doing that
Won’t you please come home?
Stop doing that
Won’t you please come home?


I’m more myself these days I think,
I’ve got more guts than I could ever need
I could ever need
I’m more myself these days I think,
I’ve got more guts than I could ever need
I could ever need
I’m more myself these days I think,
I’ve got more guts than I could ever need
I could ever need


Stop doing that, won’t you please come home?
Stop doing that, won’t you please come home?
Stop doing that, won’t you please come home?
Track Name: time is money
Sometimes you try your best
But the bad still wins
You put up quite a fight
But you went home bleeding
Your throat is tired
But you still weren’t loud enough
All our plans have been paused
All the future is lost


We can’t keep hiding
The world, isn’t waiting for us
There’s been a price, put on time
There’s a number on my head


Sometimes you feel so small
That you can’t be found
Don’t give up, build a fire
Find somebody to love


We don’t have time for this
There’s a chance it’ll keep getting worse
This is a robbery
Robbery
Robbery


We can’t keep hiding
The world, isn’t waiting for us
There’s been a price put on time
There’s a number on my head
Track Name: ladylike
pardon me, pardon me, pardon me sir
am i standing in your way?
i'll, stay quiet stay quiet and listen
do you like me better this way?
well

i'll keep on running my mouth

more ladylike?
ladylike
ladylike ladylike - ladylike

mother dear, mother dear, mother dearest
do you think i look okay?
i'll double check double check the mirror
-do you like my painted face?
well
am i pretty i'd be pretty i'd be prettier
if i bothered to get my hair done
theres a rip theres a rip in my jeans
i never learned - to keep my legs shut

why can't you be more ladylike?
more ladylike?
ladylike - ladylike

i'll keep on running my mouth running my mouth running my mouth

i'm not your play-thing
i'm not your doll
i'm not your play-thing
i'm not your doll

are you sure that you wanna go out like that?
are you sure that you wanna go out like that?

ladylike. ladylike. ladylike
Track Name: you can't fix a fracture with a crutch
This is self destruction
This is a disease
Woah
And she says you’re not worth it
You can say what you please
I’ll let the earth, swallow me
And I like to think about too many things
I’ll watch the earth - swallow me


It’s not a dream you’re supposed to be in love
Woah
You can change your name
You could learn to be enough
I don’t wanna be human anymore


Relax and shush the stories
Baby we can start again
Woah
If I could drink a little less, she said
Maybe I could learn to be, learn to be, learn to be - somebody


It’s not a dream you’re supposed to be in love
Woah
You can change your name
You could learn to be enough
I don’t wanna be human anymore


I’ve been searching for freedom
You’re still looking for, a god
Woah
I’ve been searching for freedom
You’re still looking for, a god


It’s not a dream you’re supposed to be in love
Woah
You can change your name
You could learn to be enough
I don’t wanna be human anymore


I’ve been searching for freedom
You’re still looking for, a god
I’ve been searching for freedom
You’re still looking for, a god
I’ve been searching for freedom
You’re still looking for, a god
Track Name: stop
Hush, don’t speak, he said
They won’t believe you
Just sneak out, he said
Duck or they’ll see you
Have a drink, he said
My friends really like you
Follow me, he said
It’s getting late and
Don’t worry, he said
Everyone does it


I said stop!
This isn’t what I want.
This isn’t what I wanted
I said stop!
This isn’t what I want.
This isn’t what I wanted
I said stop!


Hush, don’t speak, he said
They won’t believe you
Cover up, he said
Tend to your own wounds
Don’t get caught, he said
Run for the back door
And try to forget, it wasn’t that bad


So stop!
This isn’t what I want.
This isn’t what I wanted
I said stop!
This isn’t what I want.
This isn’t what I wanted


Don’t you worry darling
They didn’t believe me
Don’t you worry darling
Don’t you worry about me


I said stop!
This isn’t what I want.
This isn’t what I wanted
I said stop!
This isn’t what I want.
This isn’t what I wanted
I said stop!
Track Name: drones
I’m a fraud
I am not young enough
To die young
And it makes me sad
That I know too much
To believe in god
Yeah,
when I need help I ask the devil first
And I swear I’m at my best when your not watching


Well,
Can you find me out here?
I am a torn, black hole
I am a supernova
I am a supernova


Ahhaaah


The best songs
Are written with the saddest souls
Cuz only, they know
Where the lonely hearts go
The liquor gets stronger
After brushing your teeth
The only thing I wanna do today
Is fall asleep


Well,
Can you find me out here?
I am a torn black hole
I am a supernova
I am a supernova
How did you find me out now?
I am a torn black hole
I am a supernova
I am a supernova


Aahhaaaa

Well


We are not astronauts
We are not astronauts
We are not astronauts


Can you find me out here?
I am a torn black hole
I may not make another year
But it’s not your job to fix me


I am a supernova
I am a supernova
I am a supernova
I am a supernova


Aahhhaa


I’m a fraud
I am not young enough
To die young
Track Name: people are parasites
people are parasites

cutting down trees
for paper that's make-believe
building a cage around
drawing lines in the ground
we're too scared
too be loud
we refuse
to call out
those looking for treasure
in ways they can measure
the same thing forever
and won't call it murder
impact and danger
hold back our anger
hide behind laughter
on the brink of disaster

we've got
no concept of time after
we've got
no concept of time

we're guided by panic
blind, deaf and frantic
what if time isn't static?
like we're made of elastic
we stretch till we snap
and every action is
brilliant or tragic
the smell of burnt plastic
we can't imagine
the sound of the damage
we're taking advantage
shallow and selfish
we're so fucking clueless
we've rendered this useless

we call
we call ourselves human
and we call
we call ourselves

we can't survive without this
we can't survive without this
we won't survive so fuck him
i won't be forced to,
handle these storms or
silence those words that
hang off of sunken ships

we need dramatic
excuses for havoc
finding distractions
like some kind of addict
attached to chaotic
strings tied with tact
and it tastes like a trap
thats cluttered with traffic

we can't survive without this
we can't survive without this
we won't survive so fuck him
i won't be forced to
handle these storms or
silence these words that
hang off of sunken ships

people are parasites
Track Name: haunting
i'm tired, i'm tired, i'm tired of
sinking
so slowly
illusions
i could
make it out anytime
i felt

i can't make mortal go away
and i wont promise i will stay
if the sky is watching me
i'm not ready
i don't wanna grow old,
i'm not ready
to know
oh oh oh

i swear, i swear, i won't be found
wanting
wanting
the conscious can be
haunting
i guess i am haunting too

i'm not ready to know

i can't make mortal go away
and i won't promise i will stay
if the sky is watching me
i'm not ready
i don't wanna grow old
i'm not ready to know

if the sky is watching me,
i'm not ready
i don't wanna grow old
i'm not ready
to know
Track Name: heroin & automobiles
i want it all
but i won't take anything
i need it now
but my heart is empty
i
wanna save the world
do you wanna play
she said,
"i wanna be a bird"
well we can make a way
cuz you are worth
so much more than you know
so much more than you notice
and i can't help
being the wretch that i am
i am the best that i can be right now
right now, right now, right now
i figured out what my deepest fear is
i can't
lose anymore friends i need them all to
live
i close my eyes and see the places i have been
sometimes it feels like
the universe knows who to root against
like the universe knows who to root against
you are worth
so much more than you know,
so much more than you notice
and i can't help
being the wretch that i am
i am the best that i can be
right now
right now
i try to pinpoint all the moments
everything changed
i try to find
the parts that have been erased
and god i miss their faces
i try to paint their places in my mind
so i keep counting the days that it's been
i keep counting the days i've wasted
i try to pinpoint all the moments
everything changed
i try to find
the parts that have been erased
and god i miss their faces
i'm finding them in strangers
so i keep counting the days that it's been
i keep counting the days i've wasted
(i'll try my best)
cuz you are worth
so much more than you know,
so much more than you notice
and i can't help
being the wretch that i am
i am the best that i can be
right now
so i keep counting the days that it's been
i keep counting the days i've wasted
