about

"Weird Thoughts" is The Great Heights Band's first official release. The album includes 5 songs that were written by Neal Karkhanis in a small Baltimore apartment in 2013.

"Portland" and "Stay" were recorded at the tail end of 2013 at a studio just outside of Baltimore called Amped Recording with engineer/producer Greg Parker. "Monster," "Waste All My Time," and "Dwell On It" were all recorded in Waldorf, Maryland with engineer/producer Mike Bridgett at The Monster House in spring 2014.

TGHB released "Portland" as its first single late in 2013 and created a music video for the song in spring of 2014.

The band is comprised of Neal Karkhanis, Linette Gonzalez, Owen Brinser and Paul Martinez. Artwork by Ben Brown.

Track Name: Waste All My Time
How did I waste all my time?
Those years I must have been pretty blind
You wanted me to stay ordinary all so you could feel fine

It never crossed my brain
Until Paul lit me up and said it a different way
You never hated me you hated yourself
It's so sad to finally say

I know I'll forget you (Yea I'll forget you)
It's so strange you thought I'd miss you (That's right)

You said you didn't like what I did couldn't respect the things that I love
I let myself do anything for you in the end it was more than I should

How did I waste all my time?
Those years I must have been pretty blind
You wanted me to stay mediocre all so you could feel fine

I know I'll forget you (Yea I'll forget you)
It's so strange you thought I'd miss you (That's right)

Things are so much better with you...
Track Name: Portland
I saw you waiting by the door
I always wondered what you're waiting for
You were depressed I guess a mess
Searching for another shore

I saw you packing all your bags
Didn't know that I was such a drag
You hit the road alone no home
Headed towards the west coast

Well I'm sorry sweetie we just didn't work out
You didn't quite get it so I'll scream and shout

I don't want to go to Portland

I had to hear it from your friends
How you thought I was a dead end
You know we could have talked or wrote or spoke
Said what needed to be said

Why did you break my bong?
Well now that's really fucking wrong
We went from being rad to being sad I'm glad
I've gotten over being mad

Well I'm sorry sweetie we just didn't work out
You didn't quite get it so I'll scream and shout

I don't want to go to Portland

You're leaving got your reasons
Go if you want to go

I saw you waiting by the door
I always wondered what you're waiting for
I saw you packing all your bags
Didn't know that I was such a drag

I don't want to go to Portland
Track Name: Monster
Close your eyes
Take yourself back to that time

We were just kids trying to fit in
Didn't know anything about it
I'd wake up with his hands around my neck
So know I've got your back

So turn the lights on
I hear the monster he's coming down my hall
Mom, can't we bury it?
He finds that treasure you know I'll be fighting him

It's not right
But let yourself move on with your life

We were just kids trying to fit in
Didn't know anything about it
I'd wake up with his hands around my neck
So know I've got your back

So turn the lights on
I hear the monster he's coming down my hall
Mom, can't we bury it?
He finds that treasure you know I'll be fighting him

Is he coming today?
Is he coming tonight?
Will I wake up again?
Will I put up a fight?

So turn the lights on
I hear the monster he's coming down my hall
Mom, can't we bury it?
He finds that treasure you know I'll be fighting him
Track Name: Dwell On It
I can't tell what you're thinking
I can't climb inside your skull
So please tell me what's going on
Please tell me what you want

I'm not sure why I did that
No, I can't explain myself
So can we live it off just play it down
Let ourselves move on

You're about to lose your head

Life's too short
Life's too quick to dwell on it
Just let it go

But your brain works crazy
Or maybe it's just me
It's not the first time not the worst time
We're repeating history

My bad I didn't mean it
I'll just blame it on my friends
The boys we drank too much we smoked a ton
Fuck we had some fun

We're about to lose our heads

Life's too short
Life's too quick to dwell on it
Just let it go

Let's plant us like roses this year
We've got some thorns but our potential is clear
You'll grow red and glisten
I'll be that thorn hang on and listen
Do anything to keep you near

Life's too short
Life's too quick to dwell on it
Just let it go
Track Name: Stay
You're gone
I wish that I knew why I said those things to you
I'm wrong
Can't justify those words though I've said them all before

You said you're coming by to grab a few things
I've never been so scared to tell you how I feel

Stay
We'll shine another day
We'll be ok
I swear I'll make a change

I'll be honest
I know that it's not the best for me
But if I were you I'd say "fuck off" and leave
That wouldn't surprise me

But don't fight it
You're everything I want
I won't hide it
You're all the things I'm not

You said I could try but you just might walk away
It's so simple all I want is you to

Stay
We'll shine another day
We'll be ok
I swear I'll make a change

You're gone
I wish that I knew why I said those things to you
I'm wrong
Can't justify those words though I've said them all before

Stay
We'll shine another day
We'll be ok
I swear I'll make a change

If I were you I'd say goodbye...
