Captain Kidd

6 albums

A product of the ever-growing Columbus, OH music scene, the psychedelic pop infused 4-piece Captain Kidd returns after the release of their sophomore EP “Good Life”. Propelled by the success of their single “Freaky Love,” Captain Kidd’s evolution has taken them from the dive clubs of northeast and central Ohio, to supporting the likes of Glass Animals, Capital Cities, Wiz Khalifa, and Griz at some of the country’s premier music festivals. 

Characterized by spacey synths blended with sultry vocals, the band has captured the attention of listeners from New York to New Zealand. This dynamic mixture of song writing elements has cultivated a sound that has been described as “fresh,” “dance-able,” and “celestial.” The band is set to release their first full-length album, expected Spring 2018.

Lyrics:

Last night I saw the future Tangled in your hair like a bad dream A dirty hallelujah When your room looked the same as we left things The way we left it I broke the law with you back then We were a storm and you know it And I’d run off with you back then Seems so much better when you know it’s over ‘Cause baby you bleed me, yeah you bleed me With your love And baby you bleed me, yeah you bleed me With your touch And baby you bleed me, yeah you bleed me With your love Baby you bleed me, yeah you bleed me Daydreams wrapped in amber The way you always said that you’d hate me On warm nights I remember When summer used to slow all the bleeding Slow all our bleeding

Lyrics:

Are we playing roulette, the way we move in circles? It’s such a shame we could never escape, we’re intertwined I can tell by the look on your face, it’s clear as Cristal We should act like we’re never afraid, but I won’t lie You’ve just got to You’ve just got to move with me now, don’t act like it’s forever Can’t control ourselves on the nights that we’re together Always something more, another new thrill we can run to You’ve just got to move fast in a world of pain and pleasure And are you in it? When we don’t need someone to talk to Pushing the limit Pushing the limit

Lyrics:

Am I high on the air I’m breathing? I stole it from your lungs All the nights I’m with you are painted Red with obsession You’re burning fast on me like a fever Are you searching for something sweeter? Champagne and a box of matches You know it drives you wild And I know I can’t keep you off my mind There’s just something about your love I might be wasting all my time There’s just something about your love It’s the way that you cut me open Watch it all pour out It’s how you sway on me like the ocean As if we never stopped I can’t complain when you pull me under Call it wrath of a jealous lover To stay and enjoy the violence You know it drives you wild And I know They say you’re reckless But I don’t care Got me feeling restless But baby I’m not scared I just need to find a way to

I got my eyes on you You're everything that I see I want your hot love and emotion, endlessly I can't get over you You left your mark on me I want your high love and emotion, endlessly 'Cause you're a good girl and you know it You act so different around me 'Cause you're a good girl and you know it I know exactly who you could be Just hold on we're going home Just hold on we're going home It's hard to do these things alone Just hold on we're going home, ho oh I got my eyes on you You're everything that I see I want your hot love and emotion, endlessly I can't get over you You left your mark on me I want your high love and emotion, endlessly 'Cause you're a good girl and you know it You act so different around me 'Cause you're a good girl and you know it I know exactly who you could be So just hold on we're going home (goin' home) Just hold on we're going home (goin' home) It's hard to do these things alone (things alone) Just hold on we're going home (goin' home) Ho oh (goin' home) You're the girl You're the one Gave you every Thing I love I think there's something Baby I think there's something Baby You're the girl You're the one Gave you every Thing I love I think there's something Baby I think there's something Baby 'Cause you're a good girl and you know it You act so different around me 'Cause you're a good girl and you know it I know exactly who you could be Oh just hold on we're going home (goin' home) Just hold on we're going home (goin' home) It's hard to do these things alone (things alone) Just hold on we're going home (goin' home) Ho oh (goin' home)

Lyrics:

We’re chasing high life on a screen We’re taking pills just to fall asleep It’s not enough, baby, just to feel Empty We’re making headlight reveries Packed in a car going 93 We’re burning off bad history This week Maybe I’m caught up in chasing bluer skies Wasting away ‘til summer time Lost in this plastic paradise, this paradise We’re running red lights on our way home Got bad habits we don’t disclose It’s the good life, and it doesn’t mean anything Yeah You’ve got those lipstick memories They’re painted red up on your cheek A different girl for a different week When you’re green

Lyrics:

I wonder where you’ve been, it’s felt so long Since I saw you here in all alone And in the end I know we’re better off with time But I want to know if I’m on your mind Give me just a moment Your dress fits like an omen And I hardly even notice There’s anyone around us And how can I make you stay? Oh babe I want to know If our love will feel the same way Or not at all And just like that Velvet memories, they come right back And I’m a fool who knows I can’t make up my mind I should say no, but that’d be a lie

Lyrics:

There’s a shock in her step and a current in her tongue Spark in her eyes and a smile says I’m wrong And I’m thinking that she might be searching for someone To make that connection And it couldn’t be nearer Whether locking eyes or step with step Hard to ignore when your mind is set It’s part of the feeling That you get when the night runs long Grabs your hand and leads you on and on and on There’s a look in her eyes that says she’s got you where she wants you Pressed up into a corner the second she caught you all alone Not a question of want to when she’s got you by the shoulder Pulling you closer, and closer yeah yeah Shut out the lights and shimmer in the dark Pull her close and she’ll reel you with a spark Across your skin with her fingers supercharged And wait for you to start

Lyrics:

Freaky Love won’t you take time by the minute Watch the room receeding, spinning ‘Til we’re in it, in it, in it, yeah My vaccine, recurring siamese dream Illuminate hallucination burnt into the back of your mind I want to love you Be the undercover touch that makes you feel alright I want perception Feel the indiscretion that you bring the air tonight And what I want Is your body And what I need Is your body Your Freaky Love Freaky Love keeps a gun under her mattress Not afraid to play with matches if tempation puts a thought in her mind They’re bold, the knots that bind her love The product of desire to inspire selfish harmony, oh

Lyrics:

You shouldn’t keep your back on the wall Shoulda known better than to lose yourself for too long And you want to get away from it all But the beat calls you with a hypnotic signal She’s got the style and rhythm, but she’s got no feeling One look could freeze you in place, but she’s paying no one mind There’s no assurance she’ll listen, staring at the ceiling Thoughts flow to beyond this space, she left us far behind She’s holed up by the window She’ll make with no one’s eyes She said she’s sick of it But in my mind she’s here on the dancefloor All the time, not eyeing the back door Do I really want to try to get through to you? Is this really what we came here tonight for? But in my mind she’s here on the dancefloor All the time, not eyeing the back door Do I really want to try to get through to you? Yes, I do. Your face is spectered white at the thought Of the night burning, and your heart turning beatwise But if you’d only make your way on the floor Then you might realize that you feel weightless tonight Wouldn’t you wanna Catch the midnight sun

Lyrics:

Long before the lights come on A shifting beat and rhythm starts, an ebb and flow, like fever nodes, from head to toe She wonders if you’ll stay for long Intrusive and unyielding thoughts, irrational, they feed our hopes and judgements so that We can walk the night forever search for a girl like you Like you, like you, like you, like you But the weekend doesn’t last forever, and it doesn’t matter what you do You do, you do Don’t think for a moment That we’ll be strangers in the morning even if I won’t meet your eyes We’re too deep to go back Back to the way it was when we were young, and cared for no more than highs Don’t think for a moment That we’ll be strangers in the morning even if I won’t meet your eyes We’re too deep to go back Back to the way it was when we were young, and cared for no more than highs People change in daytime clothes We cling to our conventions strong, enough to warp our hidden goals beyond control Says it all without a word Her eyes betray her silence for a fleeting hold, a pulse of warm but nothing more than

Smoke & Mirrors Good Life

Lyrics:

Could’ve sworn I had caught you by your silhouette Rebel eyes like emeralds cut through the vapors Throw a gaze through the door and I draw a cigarette Never one to decline an invitation Vision tricks - I’m tongue tied and blindfolded To your disappearing act Voodoo touch, you pin me down And I don’t know if I can take much more These smoke and mirrors get a little bit old And I don’t want to lie but I can’t tell you, so Let’s take it slow, let’s take it slow Would it hurt you to warn me when you float away And amber spotlight cast on pavement And I watch for your sign in every passing gaze But your faces defies illumination And I just want to show you

Lyrics:

Walking in your summer dress You’ve been going out on every night Could be sleeping but instead Pretend you’re doing just fine, yeah we’re fine Should I cut you off? ‘Cause you’re tripping on your feet Yeah, we’ll walk it off With our eyes kept on the streets And all my friends, we drown it out Lost again downtown Three AM, we’re out of line And we’ll do it all again tonight Live it up for one more round Broke again downtown Three AM, we’re out of line And we’ll do it all again tonight Nice to meet you, what’s your sign? Yeah, the liquor makes the time go by 3-inch heels and dandelions Chase your doubts with salt and lime, yeah we’re fine And we’ll do it all again tonight
