danielian19 Any time we find that sound that moves us, bringing us to that deeper point of who we are, it is worth loving. In a world were we are moved to forget and pushed to our limits this album sends me back to the heart of who i am. It moves my true self. Knowing this is the last work Kyle will ever be heard doing is heartbreaking but what a gift he left. Wildside is my favorite track to play when i just can't be moved to start my day. It is my motivation! Favorite track: Wildside.

about

Hello friends, family and fans of Carverton

On February 7th, 2019, we lost the spirit and soul of our band, Kyle Yorlets. Although he may be gone, he will live in our hearts forever. Today, we wanted to share our full-length record that we have been working on for the past year. It was a dream for Kyle to have his art shared with the world, and we wanted to honor his legacy by giving everyone a chance to listen and own the record we have worked so hard on for all these months.

Chasing Sounds is an album that has demanded all of our blood, sweat, and tears. We know the only true satisfaction we could ever get from this is if you all love it as much as we loved making it. We’ve been eagerly waiting to release this, and despite the circumstances that we have been up against, we can’t wait for you all to hear what we all have been working on this past year.

The record will tap into emotions one experiences while both in and out of love, while feeling helpless, on top of the world, or simply not caring about anything at all. The themes and lyrics expressed throughout are inviting, but might leave you feeling exposed. We ask you to take a moment to celebrate these tracks, to celebrate the love and dedication Kyle placed within these songs for the people he loved both near and far.

We have decided that before releasing this record on Spotify, Apple Music and the streaming & download world, that we will make this record free for everyone to download with the ability to pay what you want for the record. 50% of all donations will go towards setting up a Scholarship & Foundation in Kyle’s name. We know that Kyle will be chasing sounds forever, and we hope that you will join him and us in that journey.

With love,

Michael Curry, Christian Ferguson and Michael Wiebell.

Track Name: Misery
I had to kill myself to make room for a better me
I tried to be myself, but I couldn't let go of my receipt
Well maybe being happy ain't all it's cracked up to be
In a world that's full of left or right I'm somewhere in between
Not black or white a darker shade of grey you've never seen

Can I have some goddamn misery?

Are you angry?
Are you ready to hang me yet?
Are you gonna play me for a fool? Paint me as a psycho tool that should stay locked in the shed?
Hey movie star
Have they ever seen your scars?
Was your little life in the limelight a little too bright for you to see (recognize) who you are
Have you seen the darkness at all?

We're all miserable
We feel invisible
We all wanna be, but we're never gonna be invincible

I had to kill myself to make room for a better me
I️ tried to be myself, but I️ couldn’t let go of my receipt
Well maybe being happy ain't all it's cracked up to be
Can I have some god damn misery?


I've got unfinished sins
So you can fill my grave back in
Life is gonna cut you down
Til you can't make a sound from being
Buried up to your chin

So take it in your stride
Don't be scared to live your life
Cuz if life's just a risk
Then why not go all in
Go on lift up that chin
Put some salt in that grin

We're all miserable
We feel invisible
We all wanna be, but we're never gonna be invincible

I have to kill myself to make room for a better me
They'll tell you be yourself, then they hang on to your receipt
Well Maybe being yourself ain't all it's cracked up to be
Can I have some god damn misery

We're all miserable
We feel invisible
We all wanna be, but we're never gonna be invincible
But we'll stand through it all
And we'll be difficult
You can call us what you want but the world you'll never use is divisible (x2)

I had to kill myself to make room for a better me
I️ tried to be myself, but I️ couldn’t let go of my receipt
Well maybe I'm not cut out for this fucked reality


Can I have some god damn misery? (x3)
Track Name: Wildside
Caught your eyes in a crowded room
Hypnotized by your cheap perfume
We can leave here, just me and you
But we don't have to get home so soon
Crack a window and catch a glimpse
Of concrete towers and billboard hieroglyphs
Calling us can you hear the sound
So come with me and just don't look down (yeah)


We'll step into a different frame (yay yay)
Take my hand darling it is okay-yeh-yay-yay
We don't need all the fortune and fame, what do you say
Let's take a walk on the wild side
(Side, side, side, side)


Painted lights above city streets
Hanging high like neon trees
In the jungle no lion sleeps
So take a deep breath and run with me
Dawn is coming for us my dear
But don't you worry don't have no fear
For if it all goes up in smoke
You and I could always go (yeah)


We'll step into a different frame (yay yay)
Take my hand darling it is okay-yeh-yay-yay
We don't need all the fortune and fame, what do you say
Let's take a walk on the wild side


Let's take a walk on the wild side

Let's take a walk on the wild side
(Take a walk on the) 4x
(Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)


We'll step into a different frame (yay yay)
Take my hand darling it is okay-yeh-yay-yay
I'll be Tarzan and you can be Jane what do you say


We'll step into a different frame
Take my hand darling it is okay
We don't need all the fortune and fame, what do you say
Let's take a walk on the wild side


Na-na-na na-na-na na-na-na, hey hey
Na-na-na na-na-na na-na hey-yeh yay yay
Na-na-na na-na-na na-na-na hey hey hey hey
Let's take a walk on the wild side
Track Name: ZERO
Wake up, voicemail from my girl saying we should break up, best friend layin' on the couch butt naked, I don't wanna wake him, but I'll snap a couple pics, I don't wanna waste this, time to get wasted
I don't do the 9-5 slot

Keep your rat race I don't run with that lot
Man everybody's tryna get that number one spot
While I'm in the living room cussing out my Xbox

I need something more, so you can probably catch me passed out on the floor, living in my daydreams
I might be stupid but you know what I'm never losing
I keep em second guessing you know that I'm never stressin ask me how many fucks I give (zero)

Hold up I know what you thinking right now
Stupid ass kid think he got it figured out
Yea the fingers pointing at me always come from the frowns
I don't get bogged down, I shed it off like a pound because
I know that they're no better than me
and nobody's as perfect as they seem
tell me what's the point of chasing after dreams, when I can do it in 1080p
I’m bout the night light limelight I don’t have a half life
Hungry with an appetite for being myself
I don’t keep it on the shelf, I know it all too well, I'm cracking out of my shell, I'm breaking out of my cell
and Imma take it, easy macaroni Imma make it
White girl complex try to keep it basic, if you hate don't get mad but you probably need lasik
It's the life that I'm living man I'm basically the greatest

I need something more, so you can probly catch me passed out on the floor, living in my daydreams
I might be stupid but you know what I'm never losing
I keep em second guessing you know that I'm never stressin ask me how many fucks I give (zero)

I'm not fading away, life's way more fun with a princess to save
Have fun wasting away, why go to work when there's dragons to slay.

I need something more

I need something more, so you can probably catch me passed out on the floor, living in my daydreams
I might be stupid but you know what I'm never losing
I keep em second guessing you know that I'm never stressin ask me how many I give

I need something more
Cuz everyday life is
Such a fucking bore
Cuz everybody's all like
Go to class, get a job, put your pants on
Shine your shoes, show your teeth, put a mask on
Get a life just to die as a hero
None of the above, I just wanna be a zero

I need something more
Track Name: Heart Racing
You're too pretty for a nice guy
I'm a fixer upper in the right light
Step into to the corner, we'll be walking on the border of a sweet sweet dream or a nightmare

Ooh, no chance of getting sober
Ooh, if you're coming any closer
You're a paramore riot and you woke a sleeping giant
Screaming set me free but don't fight fair

Everybody needs somebody
But all I need is your body

We'll be running through the streets butt naked
Less than royalty but baby we will fake it
So take the smile off and show me how you shake it
Ooooooh I wanna feel heart racing

Won't you take a dance with the devil?
Don't you be shy, wont you be a rebel?
I'm the thunder you're the lightning
It's about to get exciting
Won't you shed your skin? Don't think twice now

(Ooh) I'm just tryna get a little higher
I'm a good (ooh) baby if you're feeling inspired
We can go all night if you never get tired
Like a moth to a flame we'll set the city on fire

Everybody needs somebody
But all I need is your body

We'll be running through the streets butt naked
Less than royalty but baby we will fake it
So take the smile off and show me how you shake it
Ooooooh I wanna feel heart racing

Your fingers running through my hair love
Can you feel it in the air love
I can see it in your stare
Don't you be scared, don't you be scared now (x2)

I just wanna know how deep your love is
Lets start the night

We'll be running through the streets butt naked
Less than royalty but baby we will fake it
So take the smile off and show me how you shake it

Ooooooh I wanna feel your heart racing (x3)
Track Name: Again And Again
You're thin as a board, but you complain your non-existent love handles
You're dead inside, but your eyes burn brighter than a yankee candle

You never seem to show but darling I know that you're crying underneath your perfect glow
and the silly jokes
and you just love to make me hate you so I'll leave but let me tell you now before I go
I need to let you know

I can't help but falling for you, again and again and again
and in spite of all that you do, I'd do it again and again and again

Static electric heart beats are touching together whenever you're pressing up against my bare chest
I'm going insane, you know I don't sleep very well but I bet you'd just stay, and now I'm just restless, no yea
You never seem to show but darling I know that you're crying underneath your perfect glow
and the silly jokes
and you just love to make me hate you so I'll leave but let me tell you now before I go
I need to let you know

That I can't help but falling for you, again and again and again
and in spite of all that you do, I'd do it again and again and again

Oh again and again

You can play pretend forever, and ever, and ever
just as long as it's with me (x2)

and I can't help but falling for you again and again and again

and in spite of all that you do, I'd do it again and again and again
and in time you might be falling for me again and again and again
if it's right, then I'll find you right next to me again and again and again

You can play pretend forever
Track Name: Scream
Ain't nobody gonna pass us
We are on a different axis
We can never finish last cuz
(We can not slow down, we do not know how)

Hear the single, you were meant to
Leak the album and they buy two
All my people man they stay true
(This is my kingdom, you cannot swing the em)

I'll just be spitting some bullshit
When I'm on stage it's a pulpit
Man pretty soon I'll be cultin'
(If they go rampant, I'm the new Manson)

Better believe I'm a psycho
I'm just a new type of maestro
Chorus will hit you like nitro
(all my fanatics bout to go manic)


I've got a bad attitude with good intentions so

Throw your hands up
Like you'll never get enough
Tonight let's all pretend we'll live forever
Invite the whole team
We're bout to make a scene
And when they tell you turn it down say never never
Fire in my belly and smoke in my lungs
We're bout to hit the town
We're getting down til the suns comin up
Hey are you ready now
Put your hands up like you'll never get enough
I'm here to make you scream
Oh no, hell yea

Hey you wanna see a suicide?
Too bad this music will never die
The only place we're goings sky high
(New York to LA, let me here you say)
I'm a legend in the making
I'm just cookin up the bacon
If I want it Imma take it
(Don't try to stop me, Imma go rocky)

Out here in Tennessee
Feeling so menacing
I got the remedy, home of the Hennessy
Building the legacy since I was 17
Til I am 70 you can not mess with me

I feel invincible
Far from the typical
Far from predictable
Haters will tell you it's far from original
If you don't like it then come get a zipper full

And right when you think it's over, it gets so much worse

Throw your hands up
Like you'll never get enough
Tonight let's all pretend we'll live forever
Bring the whole team
We're bout to make a scene
And when they tell you turn it down say never (Never)
Fire in my belly and smoke in my lungs
We're bout to hit the town
We're getting down til the sun comin' up
Hey are you ready now
Put your hands up like you'll never get enough
I'm here to make you scream


Oh you better believe
I'm here to make you scream x4

Throw your hands up
Like you'll never get enough
Tonight let's all pretend we'll live forever
Bring the whole team
We're bout to make a scene
And when they tell you turn it down say never (Never)
Fire in my belly and smoke in my lungs
We're bout to hit the town
We're getting down til the sun comin' up
Hey are you ready now
Put your hands up like you'll never get enough
I'm here to make you scream

Oh no hell yea (x2)
Track Name: Fuck Ups
I don't wanna be wasted anymore
I don't know why Im laying on the floor
Im so sick and so tired and it's rotting to my core
I don't wanna be wasted anymore

You've been in between living wrong and right
Don't really know what to do with your life
And you're scared that your canvas will be empty when you die
You been in between living wrong and right

Oh I know that you feel like a ghost
And you don't wanna be all alone

You're a soldier trapped behind enemy lines
Barely holding on with no reason to fight
But don't you scold yourself cuz it's really alright
We're all fuck ups, we're all fuck ups

We don't know where we go when we die
We don't even know where we go when we close our eyes
We just wanna feel safe when we sleep at night (yes we do)
We don't know where we go when we die

Oh I know that you feel like a ghost
And you don't wanna be all alone

You're a soldier trapped behind enemy lines
Barely holding on with no reason to fight
But don't you scold yourself cuz it's really alright
We're all fuck ups, we're all fuck ups

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
We're all fuck ups, We're all fuck ups (x4)
We're all fucked up

You're a soldier trapped behind enemy lines
Barely holding on with no reason to fight
But don't you scold yourself cuz it's really alright
We're all fuck ups, we're all fuck ups (x6)
We're all fucked up
Track Name: Suffer
Said she's calling for the last time
That something about us don't feel right
So I put the phone down then I screamed til my lungs gave out
Well Tell the new boy I say hi
Let him know to hold on tight
A few seconds with no sound then she said see you around

I'd like to wish you well, but then this song won't sell

So I hope that you

Get hit by a train, and it breaks all your bones
Get caught in the rain, and spend every night alone
Yea you might think I'm crazy well maybe I'm
Just a little insane, cuz I hope that you
Suffer, suffer, suffer

Now every single story always has to have a bad guy
But there is not a person in this world who'd wanna be them, right?
I mean nobody wants to be demonized
But if nobody wants to receive it I guess I'll take it and own it I got a bone to pick
It's sick and twisted you can call me a cynic but

I am just a person
And right now I'm really hurtin'
You treated my heart like a puzzle piece
Couldn't figure it out, now it's worthless
It was mental abuse with a million excuses just talking to you made me nervous
I was breaking down but now I'm breaking out and baby leaving was your greatest service, yea

I'd like to wish you well
But I'd rather give you hell

So I hope that you

Get hit by a train, and it breaks all your bones
Get caught in the rain, and spend every night alone
You might think I'm crazy well maybe I'm
Just a little insane, cuz I hope that you
Suffer, suffer, suffer

She said what's there to live for?
I said why don't you give more?
She said boy you need to get help
I said go fuck yourself
Well if my soul is tired
and it ends in fire
I'll be singing in the angel choir

I hope that you

Get hit by a train, and it breaks all your bones
Get caught in the rain, and spend every night alone
You might think I'm crazy well maybe I'm
Just a little insane, cuz I hope that you
Suffer, suffer, suffer (x4)
Track Name: Fake Famous
I see you snap snap snappin' over there
Worn out torn out jeans with the bleach blonde hair
Four rings, blonde hair she brought the flair
Doesn't know shit about shit but she does no that she got some fans

Clap clap clap clap clap it up for the man
Rocky mountain abs, doing back flips on the sand
Make sure they're watching on the gram
Doesn't know nothing bout nothing, but he does know that he got some fans

Lately I've been so scared that I'm the only person out there
That smells the bullshit in the air

If you're ready for the paper then you'll never see the green
You can follow paparazzi but you'll never be seen
They don't save thrones for the drama kings and queens
You're smile is contagious but you can't fake famous

I see you children sitting bitching on your phones
Entitled, staying idle never doing what you're told
Thinking someone's gonna give you all the gold
No one's gonna save you when you're weak, broke and old
Yea they only care when you got the Bennies
They just wanna pick at a couple of pennies
Soundcloud rappers with your plastic semis
Please keep pretending that you're worth a penny
I don't have nothing but I love what I have
I don't play with fakes so please don't get mad
Or maybe do what might be the best story you had
When I'm up in lights and used to fucking with chads

Lately I've been so scared that I'm the only person out there
That smells the bullshit in the air

If you're ready for the paper then you'll never see the green
You can follow paparazzi but you'll never be seen
They don't save thrones for the drama kings and queens
You're smile is contagious but you can't fake famous

Get off your phones and quit brainwashing kids
Fuck you I'm not scared of your digital fists
If you need to be liked on an app just to feel love
You don't know what love is (x3)

If you're ready for the paper then you'll never see the green
You can follow paparazzi but you'll never be seen
They don't save thrones for the drama kings and queens
You're smile is contagious but you can't fake famous
Track Name: Rise
A shadow in my mind, I can hear a faint whisper
Trying to cover my eyes, painting a different picture
To keep me hypnotized, break me down to a wimper
But he's feeding me lies, and I'm not a good listener

Can you see the clouds seeping over the horizon?
Swallowing every town, but nobody seems to mind it
I know you're in the crowd because you're safer in hiding
No time for silence, it's time to be violent, so take all the quiet
and start up a riot now

When the thunder cracks the sky
We will rise, we will rise, we will rise
Or die trying

Oh come one come all, and listen to a sermon
I speak of the fall for we bare a great burden
They're scaling the walls, and it's only gonna worsen
It's time to stand tall and open up the curtain

When the thunder cracks the sky
We will rise, we will rise, we will rise
Or die trying

Now the thunder cracks the sky
We will rise, we will rise, we will rise

Oh come one come all, and listen to a sermon
I speak of the fall for we bare a great burden
They're scaling the walls, and it's only gonna worsen
It's time to stand tall and open up the curtain
Track Name: Paranoid
It's me again
The gins much sweeter now
Do you remember when
I said I'm losing what I found
It's been a week since then
I haven't found it yet
But I hope I find it soon

She hasn't called
We haven't spoken much like
Like none at all
Feels like we're always losing touch
See I was ten feet tall
And now I'm just a wreck
And I know she don't feel it too

No I don't wanna go upstairs
Cuz there's bad things living up there
And it's tearing away at my heart
Cuz every time I look around all I ever see are

Perfect memories in picture frames
Slowly drowning in my tears, they fall like rain
You can tell me if I sound insane
I'm alright, I'm just trying to be fine
Tell me I'm paranoid

I call my dad once every week or two to
Talk about the bad, he always helps me think things through
He doesn't know I'm sad, cuz I can't tell the truth
And I don't wanna do that to him or my mom

Dancing with my demons
I've been dreaming, screaming
Shaking as I'm waking I'm forsaken I'm complacent man it's been taking over me
Just to keep my sanity, just to keep my decency cuz every single frequency is freaking seeking me

No I don't wanna go upstairs
Cuz there's bad things living up there
And it's tearing away at my heart
Cuz every time I look around all I ever see are

Perfect memories in picture frames
Slowly drowning in my tears, they fall like rain
You can tell me if I sound insane
I'm alright, I'm just trying to be fine
Tell me I'm paranoid

If I die before I wake
Save my soul for momma's sake
Lord I'm not ready to die
Let me stay just one more night
If I die before I wake
Save my soul for momma's sake
Lord I'm not ready to die
Let me stay just one more night
If I die before I wake
Play my songs at heaven's gate
Lord I'm not ready to die
I don't wanna say goodbye
Lord I'm not ready to die
Lord I'm not ready to die
Lord I'm not ready to die
Let me stay so I can fix my

Perfect memories in picture frames
Slowly drowning in my tears, they fall like rain
You can tell me if I sound insane
I'm alright, I'm just trying to be fine
Tell me I'm paranoid

It's me again, I'm barely conscious now
It might be a sin, but I hate you so so much right now
I don't know where you've been
But I could use your help and I hope I find you soon
I hope I find you soon
I hope I find you soon
Track Name: Chasing Sounds
I never had big things to say
All my talk feels small anyway
I'm hanging on by these six strings most days
Pouring out my heart I'm so afraid

And I do it to keep me sane
And I do it so I won't break
But I do it to make you brave, to make you brave

I've been chasing sounds, hoping that they might hear me out
I'm screaming out we will not sleep, we will not sleep, we will not sleep
There's no rest for a tired soul
You'll find me chasing sounds til the day I die

So here's a washed up out symphony
Call it a broke out masterpiece
Baptized in the blood of my misery
I can only hope you're listening

Cuz then maybe I'll keep my faith
Cuz then maybe I might be saved
Cuz then maybe I'll make you brave, I'll make you brave

I've been chasing sounds, hoping that they might hear me out
I'm screaming out we will not sleep, we will not sleep, we will not sleep
There's no rest for a tired soul
You'll find me chasing sounds til the day I die

I don't know if it ever gets better, I don't know if it lasts forever
Maybe I'm wrong to be writing this song
But I just need someone to sing along, I just need someone to sing along

I never had big things to say
All my talk feels small anyway

We're screaming out we will not sleep, we will not sleep, we will not sleep
There's no rest for a tired soul
You'll find me chasing sounds til the day I die

Maybe I'm wrong to be writing this song
But I just need someone to sing along, I just need someone to sing along
Track Name: I'll Try To
Throw a coin down the wishing well
Fear is spreading like a cancer cell
You're getting desperate, I can tell
Thinking you should just kill yourself

When it rains it pours and you're swallowed up again
It always feels like sink or swim

I feel you fading, like there's nothing you can do
But just sit there waiting, and pray it's over soon
I know it feels like god is laughing at you
And I can't save you, but I'll try to

Maybe you should get some rest
You've gotta be strong for what's coming next
It might sting but it's for the best
We'll make diamond out of this mess

When it rains it pours and you're swallowed up again
It never feels like you can win

I feel you fading, like there's nothing you can do
But just sit there waiting, and pray it's over soon
I know it feels like god is laughing at you
And I can't save you, but I'll try to

And if you're weak, I'll carry you home
And when you're hungry, I'll fill up your bowl
And if you falter, I'll give you my soul
And when you go, I'll bury your bones

I feel you fading, like there's nothing you can do
But just sit there waiting, and pray it's over soon
I know it feels like god is laughing at you
And I can't save you, but I'll try to
