about

So Sorry Windham, Connecticut

Hailing from Willimantic, CT, So Sorry has been crafting technically ambitious and socially conscious alternative rock music since late 2013. There are four things that can always be counted on in a So Sorry performance: viscerally emotional songs, incendiary musicianship, dedicated inclusivity with the audience, and gorgeous facial hair. ... more

Track Name: K.I.A.
Take a look inside of a town like mine
And tell me that it's fine
We're all on methadone pills
In the town of mills
As a means just to get by

Nights awake
No daybreak

K.I.A.
First and last mistake
K.I.A.
Which pill did I take?

When I was just fifteen
I knew a casualty
I couldn't say he was a friend of mine
Scoring some morphine pills
For some more cheap thrills
It was the last night of his life
He was so cruel to me in all my memories
But still it crushed me when he died
We'd both had it hard, been dealt some similar cards
And man, I wish that he was still alive

K.I.A.

Track Name: Narcissus
Cryptic little tunes
From the quiet of your room
That you can't relate to anyone
Crying little tones
From headphones and speaker cones
You don't identify with anyone
You couldn't just be anyone

You must be such a special case
Among the lesser wastes of space
You paragon of wonderful
Such intelligence you command
No lesser man could ever understand
The sense of self you know

Minor dirgy throes
From a genius no one knows
Beyond the grasp of anyone
Strange chromatic stings
From every singing string
Incomprehensible to anyone
But no, you're not just anyone

You're like a steed among the swine
On the gold standard of time
You embodiment of beautiful
You're cut diamond among the rough
The world could never give enough
To someone so objectively wonderful

So untouchable
So sweet
So unbelievable
So sweet

Heady little quotes
From a spindly little throat
Unpronounceable by anyone
Spidery little bounds
Projected loudly at the crowds
So predictable to everyone
You're not impressing anyone

Such high standards you demand
Beyond the reach of any man
Mistaking arrogance for something laudable
Such a presence you command
No wonder you're such a big fan
Who could not love someone so commendable?

So untouchable
So sweet
So unbelievable
So sweet


A self that you can't clothe
A secret everybody knows
Plain for all to see, behold
Left naked to the cold
A burden for all to see you bear
But pretend you're not even there
You grow, get old, come to despair
That all you can ever be is you
(So untouchable, so sweet)
Is me
(So unbelievable, so sweet)
Track Name: That Love is Gonna Drag You Down
That broken heart
Is gonna run you dry
Just like the tears
From your wounded eyes
Don't you know that heart of yours
Will bleed you out?
There's a killer out
On the edge of town
She's looking for you
Until you have been found
Don't you know that love of yours
Will hunt you down?

Say what you will
Do what you won't
Don't you know that love of yours
Will drag you down?

So don't you fuck around
It's a simple command
One that even you
Can understand
It's a simple task
To carry out
If you can't take the hit
You'd better shut your mouth
'Cause by now what you do
Won't even help you out
Don't you know that love of yours
Will find you out?

Say what you will
Do what you won't
Don't you know that love of yours
Will drag you down?
Don't you know that heart of yours
Will bleed you out?
Don't you know that game of yours
Will beat you down?

So don't you fuck around
Track Name: Where No One Dares
I'm going out
Where no one dares
Asking questions with no answers
As if anybody else should care
Old man in his little house
I wanna burn it from the inside out
Tear it from the inside out
A shelter of shadows and doubts
Such beauty in the eyes of those who live without

Touching, feeling
Reaching out toward
Something more than
Less than me
Burning, turning
The world to ashes
Taking, breaking
Pains of puberty

And I don't fucking care
How fortunes may fair
I'll go down with this fucking house
If it'll only prove that I'm not scared.
Drag me down with this ship
I'll flood the whole world by daylight
Tear down every wall by daylight
A passenger of this maddened trip
A finger slip on every hold I tried to grip

Tearing, baring
The whole world naked
Thrashing, crashing
Through a womb unseen
Writhing, raving
In the beauty
Of my own sweet
Creativity
Track Name: Secular Hymn #1
Though frigid storms may make me shatter
My bones are sheltered
By providence of worldly matter
Of my own

In concrete walls and wooded steeples
My oms are whispers
Of all peoples and all lives equal
To my own
All hearts share an origin
And beat as one

I feel lightened by the stars inside me
No purpose but to be
