about

Race to the Moon Houston, Texas

Race to the Moon draws on its punk and indie rock influences to create driving, sophisticated music. Four recent transplants to Houston joined forces with a shared love of Wilco, Dinosaur Jr., and high energy live performances to create a charging rock band. RTTM started its journey in June 2012 and is gaining steam, bringing rock energy and dynamic songwriting into the local Houston scene. ... more

Track Name: Alright
Johnny's ignorant
that's what they say about him
25 years still he aint learned nothing

Kathy's inconsolable
since she caught the news this morning
they went and turned her dreams into a piece of paper

But we'll be alright

I am a vessel
a ship loose from harbor
making my way to a new port

But I'm a good captain
and I'll go down with this ship
taking debt on like water

But we'll be alright
Track Name: Cynthia
Your eyes so green
behind the gas mask screen
your little arms around my neck pull me down
as the sirens blare across town

Grab anything worth saving here

Cynthia, make your way to the bunkers
or there'll be hell to pay
And we'll not negotiate surrender
while we have our sanity

Crushing rubble beneath your toes
nothing separates the earth from your sole
the stars move above your head as you sway
beneath the shadows of an iron wing

Is there anything worth saving here

Cynthia make your way to the bunkers
or there'll be hell to pay
and we'll not negotiate surrender
while we have our sanity

Do you still dream,
Or is your body just too tired?
Do you remember peace?
Do you remember nights without fire?

Cynthia make your way to the bunkers
or there'll be hell to pay
and we'll not negotiate surrender
while we have our sanity

Do you remember nights without fire?
Track Name: Suburban Surf
Come muse and take me under
come be the things I need
come make my words like thunder
come make my hands lightning

Up on this mountain
made of AstroTurf
I feel the waves pulling me
out like its suburban surf

I know these things we wanted
are not the things we need
but I can't help but be haunted
I used to have such dreams

Here in the attic
I feel the hum of the earth
and I ride the static
out like its suburban surf
Track Name: Coming Back
Coming back to state the obvious
all things come back to us someday
and I know I've lived no better life
but I'll still try to justify my ways

When we're older we'll find
it's hard to be
on the other side of our vanity

Every syllable sharpened breaks the skin
and shakes me awake
from across the world I heard you speak my name
and the silence now lingers

What did you say?

When we're older we'll find
it's hard to be
on the other side of our vanity

Every word that was meant to hurt
lands and then starts to turn
even good deeds that go unheard
can work their way around the world
I know its hard to think beyond ourselves
but know that these
beautiful and unfortunate things
will all someday come back

They'll come back to you

They're coming back to you
