The Anxieties Portland

The Anxieties are a four-piece punk rock band formed in Eugene, but now based in Portland, Oregon. Dusted Magazine called us "garage rockin' punk, mad scientist-core for the paranoid and suspicious" and that sounds about right to me.

Track Name: Lab Rats
Gotta go to work and run through the maze cause we're lab rats. Racing each other for the cheese every day, cause we're lab rats. Seems like I spend all my time running on this wheel, electrodes on my head are there to tell you how I feel. Stick us with a needle and listen to us squeal cause we're lab rats. Don't stuff us in too close to one another cause we're lab rats. If it gets overcrowded we'll eat each other cause we're lab rats. Cosmetics on our skin, and drugs are in our food, chemicals in the water there to help control our mood. Don't pull on my tail cause I think it's pretty rude cause we're lab rats. The men observe us in their long white coats cause we're lab rats. They watch what we do and they take down notes cause we're lab rats. They never tell us why, but only that we must. Don't know what they're up to or what they want from us. I think we should view them with a healthy distrust cause we're lab rats.
Track Name: The Obsolete Man
This earth has got no place for me, and there's nothing else that I can be, each day it brings me to my knees. Disconnected from this world I just don't understand, I am...the obsolete man. Can't belong but I can't be free, no future that I can foresee, discarded cultural debris, I try to find a purpose but I don't think that I can, I am...the obsolete man.
Track Name: Friday Night
I'm gonna be with you on Friday night, I'd rather be with her on Saturday, right. I got a wandering eye, and if knew you'd surely die, you know that I'll be true cause baby, I love you. I wanna be with you, I wanna be with you, I wanna be with you or maybe her...well, I don't know...cause I'm a jerk. I'm gonna wake up next to you in bed, I'd rather wake up next to her instead. Well that's my situation, and it's causing me frustration, but know that I'll be true, cause baby I love you...I wanna be with you, I wanna be with you, I wanna be with you or maybe her...well, I don't know...cause I'm a jerk
