about

Red & Yellow Salt Lake City, Utah

We capture dinosaurs and train them to cook dinner for us on occasion. But we also have a secret three-step agenda:

1- Start an epic rock/pop band (check)
2 - Incite revolution
3 - Take over the world

You can help us, Red & Yellow, achieve this dream. Every time you download one of our songs, an orphan kitten gets adopted and gas prices plummet. Let's save the world together!

Track Name: Cold Hard Goodbye
Think there's a bitter taste in your mouth, you've got an appetite for apathy. Bore through a layer of plastic and wound up in an empty heart. Maybe the robot running antifreeze has started running out of batteries, so forget your soft lips, kiss your cold hard heart goodbye. Forget your soft lips, kiss your cold, hard heart...
Goodbye.

She's got that puppy dog look in her eyes,
that candy red lipstick tracing her smile
some beaten up sleeves hide the daggers and knives
and she's ready to kill, yeah she's ready to kill.

How could I fall for a girl like that
oh she's a living and breathing heart attack.
She'll still your time and a couple of bills,
better run for the hills, better run for the hills

Think there's a bitter taste in your mouth, you've got an appetite for apathy. Bore through a layer of plastic and wound up in an empty heart. Maybe the robot running antifreeze has started running out of batteries, so forget your soft lips, kiss your cold, hard heart goodbye. Forget your soft lips, kiss your cold, hard heart...

Now I'm sending out an S.O.S.
as a humble victim of this pain in my chest
she roped me in with her villainous gaze
thought I'd pass it along before another one caves

Yeah we dated for a month or so
before I found out the devil's got her soul
she makes a man wish that he'd never been born
how could a woman so hot ever be so cold

Frozen to the bones, how does she survive?
A blizzard masquerades as paradise.
Didn't take long after I laid my weapons down
that your knife was in my back
oh karma's gonna get you bad.

I can taste the vinegar in your mouth and it's the flavor of apathy. Encased in plastic I found your empty heart. I think the robot running antifreeze is finally running out of batteries...

So forget your soft lips, kiss your cold, hard heart... (3x)
Goodbye.
Track Name: Paper Heart
I'll probably sketch you in my notebook half a dozen times today
when my thoughts collide with daydreams as my pencil hits the page.
A paper heart that carries your initials next to mine contains
what should have been our future in a tiny graphite frame.

So why'd I let you go? Why'd I let you go?
Now we can't stitch up the seams of what we used to know.

I'm sick and tired of saying I'm sorry
cause sorry's just not good enough
like lemon juice on paper cuts
Watching your tears march like paint-splattered armies
I'm breaking down, I'm giving up
this paper heart is all that's left of love.

I wish I knew the distant somehow to put the curves back in your smile.
My lips can shape the words "I'm sorry" but they can't go back in time.
Now refrigerator magnets hold the remnants of my soul--
this paper heart we cut out from a story long ago.

So why'd I let you go? Why'd I let you go?
Glue can hold the ends, but it can't fill a hole.

I'm sick and tired of saying I'm sorry
cause sorry's just not good enough
to bandage up your paper cuts.
Watching your tears march like paint-splattered armies
your cheeks are wet with giving up
this paper heart is all that's left.

Thumbing through the paragraphs of this fairytale we wrote
now the pages are all torn apart.
Take away the skin and bones and what is left of us?
Only pieces of a paper heart. Only pieces of a paper heart.

I'm sick and tired of saying I'm sorry
cause sorry's just not good enough
like lemon juice on paper cuts.
Watching your tears march like paint-splattered armies
cause I'm so good at screwing up
now this paper heart is all that's left of love.

This paper heart is all that's left of us.
Track Name: Jewelry
Is my heart a badge you wear on your chest?
Is my love a thread, a hem on your dress?
Is all I am to you your jewelry?

Is my life a mess? You scatter the pieces
and my pride detest; destroy it completely
is all I am to you your jewelry?

I'll pretend I haven't figured it out
That all I am to you is a face in the screaming crowd
You'll collect me as a trophy set me up on the shelf
As I gather dust I'll ask myself

Is your love a lie? I believe it completely.
Are your words a knife? Cause they're cutting me deeply.
Is all I am to you your jewelry?
If I learned, became something resilient
would you throw me away--I'm just one in a million
Is all I am to you your jewelry?

So I take a look at the face in the mirror
as I fake a smile could it get any clearer
that all you are to me is misery?

Would it kill you to breath for a second here with me?
Or is your heart on a stage, guys line up to get played
Put on an act and then you take your bows
Well I missed try-outs.

Is your love a lie? I believe it completely.
Are your words a knife? Cause they're cutting me deeply.
Is all I am to you your jewelry?
If I learned, became something resilient
would you throw me away--I'm just one in a million
Is all I am to you your jewelry?

Now I know how it feels
to mean nothing to your everything
am I invisible as you make it seem
and is it irony that I'm drowning in your love
and it's killing me?

Was your love a lie, I believed it completely.
Was your charm a trial, well it's soon to defeat me.
Am I really nothing more than jewelry?

Is your love a lie? I believe it completely.
Are your words a knife? Cause they're cutting me deeply.
Is all I am to you your jewelry?
If I learned, became something resilient
would you throw me away--I'm just one in a million
Is all I am to you your jewelry?

Is all I am to you just jewelry?
