about

Connecticut Glassboro, New Jersey

Connecticut formed in 2014 when Jackson Zabransky and John DeBouter began writing comedic songs about their friends under the name "The Wonky Megs." Eventually, after adding bassist Nick Iacobelli, and drummer Tim Reisch, they adopted the name Connecticut, and began playing more serious music. They recently released their freshman self-titled album, encompassing their later high school years. ... more

Track Name: Connecticut
Drunk in her car
He rolled down his window
Unaware of the fact that tonight's the night he'll fuck the whole thing up
Bought a $20 bottle
Of really shitty vodka 
Just give it a few more hours and you'll be out of your mind coming up

But he thought that he was home
He thought that she was home
We left him all alone
Then he turned off his phone 
He thought that he was home
So he wandered and he roamed
Thought that he was home 
No where close to

Take that train
Forget all your problems
I'll complain
And maybe then you'll solve em if you
Take that train
Leave those crooked spines behind

Just please give me the box
Just please give me a pull
We're halfway to the car
I'm fully capable
I should've taken that train
I should have followed Jess
I should have had the best of times
With a bullet in my chest

Cause I swear that I am home
I swear she'll take me home
It's just north up the road
A train will take it slow
I know that I am home
I'm slurred and stumbling on
Please tell me I'm home
I've got to just be home

Take that train
Forget all your problems
I'll complain
And maybe then you'll solve em if you
Take that train
Forget the crooked spines you've left behind

Just let me go to Connecticut
Ill take a god damn train home
Forget about my girlfriend
She can be alone
I swear I'll give up smoking
I swear that by the drinking
I swear I'll start all over
I'll save a couple lives
Track Name: Before Me
I thought I told you I was lyin'
You said the drugs were getting to my head
If March is off the table then where are we
She said "All I want is stability"
It's a shame I took the blame for all your insecurities
Having been there before
Going to be there now
And I turned away as you dropped trough
You fought with yourself for days on end 
But you brushed it off and tried to pretend
How long, how far, how can you still smoke
Wake up, wait here, learn to take a joke

Now I'm cutting it out cold
After you told me you sold your soul
Maybe now we can live happily in this hole
You've given me control

Heartbroken, left on the curb
With your heart on your sleeve saying no to the world
I try to calm you down but babe you know that it's you who thinks this way
Its a god damn shame you didn't get out there sooner
With a heavy dose of alcohol and sadistic humor 
Laughing all night long about the death inside
It's a long way out but it's a hell of a ride

Now I'm cutting it out cold
After you told me you sold your soul
Maybe now we can live happily in this whole
You've given me control
Track Name: Champagne
Come down
Come see me make a fool of myself
Right now
You're probably off with somebody else

This year
I made a vow to protect my brain
Those girls
Don't know a thing about drinking champagne

But I'm too gone now

With you
Oh no when I get you alone
Avoidance
As I sit on a hypocrite's throne

Show me
Show me how I'll be throwing up next
You'll say "You're dumb"
As I look down at the cigarette

But I'm too gone now
Too figure you out
The taste of the confidence slowly drips
Out my mouth
Track Name: Memorial Park
I felt the need to leave the room
I never saw just what I assumed
Walking slow along a dark dirt road
That twists and shadows yesterday to tomorrow

We stopped my car down by the beach
And you got sand all over your feet
Then you went down below 
The waves crashing slow
They teased and pulled and shattered all I know

And I'm finally free to ponder on 
Aware that all the wonder's gone
Love you look so cold why don't you stop

A close encounter, under the stars
As you told me you loved my car
And on your shoulder a tattoo
Reminded me that you're a Sioux
Which is funny, cause you only love your coffee black

You laid around and watched me go 
I tried to help you, but you're a stone
You didn't move, you didn't budge
You didn't even make a nudge
So you can sit in your apartment by yourself

And I'm finally free to ponder on 
Aware that all the wonder's gone
Love you look so cold why don't you stop

I never saw the sun
I took it as a sign that my life's already done
Saying hallelujah I've become a man is really pretty dumb to say, when I'm walking away

I turned the lights off, to the black
Though inconvenient, I walked you back
Fifteen minutes late, was all it took
To realize that I mistook 
You for a sane human being
Track Name: Naked
Heartbreak
Just under an earthquake
I love the way you smell
She says just as she takes
Another soiled breath
Another ruined chest
Her blouse doesn't fit right cause she's self conscious 'bout her breasts
It's hot, it's cold, it's black
And now we're walking back
She forgot her phone
Almost had a panic attack
She said I'll live if the pain dies
Then she took a gun and shot me between the eyes

Oh you figured out my plan
Thought I could see you naked if I held your hand
A pathetic excuse for my hormonal blues
Now I'm shit out of luck poking holes in my shoes
But the moral here is you're too clever for me

I bled out
The crowd began to shout
For the next few hours
I would be her first doubt until I stopped hanging around
Cause I was found
It's cool we made a mess
It's good that you're not Jess
Out in the cold alone with a
Tattered party dress
I've found the light you see
I've found catastrophe
So sit down before you fall
Before you try to breathe

Oh you figured out my plan
Thought I could see you naked if I held your hand
A pathetic excuse for my hormonal blues
Now I'm shit out of luck poking holes in my shoes
But the moral here is you're a self-righteous DB

Oh you figured out my plan
Thought I could see you naked if I held your hand
A pathetic excuse for my hormonal blues
Now I'm shit out of luck poking holes in my shoes
But the moral I'm too gone to understand
Track Name: Ghost
You thought you were clever
Sneaking round my town
Your spirit lurked along as everything burned down
The ceiling fell as you slept on the couch
Your mother called to see if you're around
But you're too gone now
Track Name: Red
I'm out of the frame
But the focus stays the same
Take the picture already 
It's still a god damn shame

You set me with another
And you set him with her too
And all the while I guess this feelings
Centered around you

And he's staring staring staring staring at your chest
And I'm still the one who's focused on the rest 

And you've known me for so long I forget that we never tried
But here I am now talking to you stuck outside

And I want you still holding through
When I tell you 
That I still want you
And it tastes a poison apple too

And now my car is laced
With the scent of her perfume
But I can't stand the smell
And I can't stand her too

It's later in the night
And I'm driving to his house
And close to 2 A.M. he told me he had to kick me out 

Now I'm driving around searching 
For a place where I can sleep 
What I didn't know is at 6 A.M.
You'd be back with that creep

And now I'm driving on and on and on looking for a spot
So I fell asleep at 3 by your house in the parking lot

And I want you still holding through
When I tell you 
That I still want you
And it tastes a poison apple too

You won't wait here for me
Will you tell me that you're by my side
And I still hear you're laughing 
Nearly every night, every night
