about

Rat Queen Seattle, Washington

Rat Queen is a run down, overworked Poser Punk trio dedicated to dwelling on the non-problems of their former youth. From social anxiety, to drug abuse with levity, Rat Queen can’t help but be stuck in post adolescence.

Stripped down, too loud, and not without whining, Rat Queen can’t help but make you ask yourself, “Did I ever really grow out of my awkward phase?—Or did I just get used to it?”

In the backseat of your car
Let's go all the way
It's what we do
Not what we say
Woo!

In the backseat of your car
Let's go all the way
It's what we do
Not what we say

Track Name: RoozenGaarde
I don't belong
I don't have friends
Getting closer feeling higher and higher

I had a friend
We wrote some songs
Fading faster and I can't find my lighter

And you know I'd never show it
But you turned me to a liar
Stomping in the mud!

Fell down again
Can't get it up
Please come over
I got hotdogs and bubble water

You ask what's up
You're not my friend
Let's get drunk
And go make out in a parking lot

And I guess by now you'd show it
Maybe you're the better liar
Stomping in the mud!

Have you ever had it where you don't belong?
Have you ever had it where you don't have friends?
Take me higher and higher
I said, take me higher and higher

And I guess you'll never show it
Baby you're the better liar
Stomping in the mud!
Stomping in the mud!
Stomping in the mud!
Stomping in the mud!

Hangin out in fucking mud

Doing drugs in fucking mud
In the mud

Doing drugs in fucking mud

'Cause i wanna get high

Track Name: I Think I Lost My ID
You walked me home the other night
You called me buddy three more times
Are you shitting me?
Thought the night would finally end
Until you asked me 'bout my friend
What a goddamn joke

I left the house with no real plans
I took the bus to see your band
At the Victory
I got wasted at the show
Made out with someone I don't know
I'm a goddamn mess

Running in circles
Live to be lonely
Something's got a hold of my brain
Drink 'til I'm wicked
Live to die slowly
Hope that I'm going insane

And I knew the party
Wasn't even worth it
And I just can't seem to
Drink you out of mind
And I thought that you liked me for sure
And now I'm feeling insecure
At home nursing all these petty lies

Waking up on the next day
I thought at least I might get laid
I guess I was wrong
Morning beers and AM smokes
You treat me like a goddamn joke
You can fuck right off

Running in circles
Live to be lonely
Something's got a hold of my brain
Drink 'til I'm wicked
Live to die slowly
Hope that I'm going insane
Yeah
Yeah
Track Name: Anxiety
I'm still obsessed with high school
How it was never kind
My sanity and I are on the outs
Give me your worst confession
To ease my troubled mind
My bullshit only makes me wanna cry

And I'm learning how to lie
About who I am and where I'm going
I'm running out of time
To find my way into a new skin
Find a world that I belong in
I don't know why I try
'Cause it's always my fault
Yeah it's always my fault

I hate the word depression
I hate your pitied stare
I hate that couple walking by my house
I have the worst obsession
With thinking that you care
Anxiety just makes me wanna die
And cry

And I'm learning how to lie
About who I am and where I'm going
I'm running out of time
To find my way into a new skin
Find a world that I belong in
I don't know why I try

Who I am and where I'm going
Can't stop myself from showing
Find a world that I belong in
Can't make myself remember who to be

Find a way to live with knowing
Undeniably that it's always my fault
Yes it's always my fault

'Cause it's always my fault
(Don't know what to do 'cause its always my fault)
It's always my fault
(Don't know what to do 'cause its always my fault)
It's always my fault
(Don't know what to do 'cause its always my fault)
It's always my fault
(Don't know what to do 'cause its always)
Track Name: Nobody Likes Me
I've forgotten how to see the future
And I've forgotten how to smell
And I am tunneling from here to Tuesday
So far nobody can tell

And I was hoping that you might remember
The time we had a little chat
Instead of laughing at my introduction
Instead of saying I was fat
And now I'm singing

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
I may as well just go and eat some worms

You're pretending that your something special
And I'm pretending that I'm you
And we are dancing 'round the possibility
That we may have to get a clue
And someday I will leave the earth behind me
And ride my bicycle to Mars
Send my mail in a paper airplane
And keep myself hidden in the stars
And I'll be singing

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
I may as well just go and eat some worms

Shalalalalala
Lalalalala
Lalala

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
I may as well just go and eat some worms

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
I may as well just go and eat some worms
Track Name: Worthless
Digging pixel garbage
Losing sleep
Wordless singing out
Too loud to talk
And I can only walk the Hill
So many times
Before they figure out I'm worthless
And I hope I make you nervous
Because I know I don't deserve
Your love or mine

Feeling out don't know
What's real or not
Graceless scrolling pop
Your face I creep
And I can only hold my breath
For so much time
Before they figure out I'm useless
and more than just a little clueless
And all I've learned is to abuse your love and mine

And I don't know how to breath
And I don't know who to be
I'm crawling into your skin
Your mother must've been a saint
For putting up with your shit for so many years

Tripping sipping poison
Dream the end
Creeping on your face
Too numb to fuck
And the excuses only work
So many times
And it could be you've never heard this
Maybe you think I don't deserve this
But I'll never not be worthless
Track Name: Glory Fades (I'm Max Fischer)
Did someone say my name
Bee keeper, top fencer
Probation, left behind
Sharp kid there, shit student
Drunk diving in the deep
Vet smoker, sad partner
Two faces, both a friend
New rival, don't cross him

I wrote a master play
I know more than you know
I'll take the world one day
The high road's the low road

Just dial my private line
One question, one hand-job
One uninvited guest
They're work scrubs, O. R. they
What was her name again
Don't like her, she's boring
Hey Blume, we're meant to be
Sad partners, small children

I wrote a master play
I know more than you know
I'll take the world one day
The high road's the low road
I'm just a barber's son
And I can't ignore ya
I fought the board and won
Sic Transit Gloria

And what would Eloise think
To see her boy so sad
Sharing helpless heartache
With a frank blue collar dad
Edward Appleby's long gone
He left us to our lies
Saving your last dance for me
Is all that I could hope for
When you're looking in my eyes

I'm just a barber's son
But I can't ignore ya
I fought the board and won
Sic Transit Gloria
Sic Transit Gloria
Sic Transit Gloria
Track Name: End Of Days
I got a bad feeling
That we are living in the end of days
My body's never not sick or sad about it
Helplessness got me feeling so ashamed

Where do we go?
I hear it in my sleep
And I don't wanna die
But bombs are gonna fly

We're drowning in our own garbage
And losing track of all the children lost
Too worn and beaten to be that mad about it
Pointing fingers at everything but truth

That's how it goes
You hear it every day
And we're all gonna die
While pigs and players thrive

Not all those lost will wander or hide away
It was fun while it lasted
