about

Denver band CITRA has hit the ground running. Formed in October of 2015, their first release would follow just three months later with the January 2016 debut EP - Ocean. A collaboration of four strangers who met by virtue of a Craigslist Ad, they quickly found that their collective musical influences were paving the way to their own unique brand of fun, high-energy, guitar-driven rock.

Ocean represents a bright future for the band...the album shoots out of a cannon with the opening track "Settle Down", and weaves it's way through an eclectic mix of melodic, at times harrowing, non-stop rock, highlighted by the band's pleadingly powerful title track, "Ocean". Armed with a care-free style that never takes itself too seriously, and aiming to inject a bit of fun into the EDM and folk-rock dominated Denver market, look for these relative unknowns to be strangers no more and make big leaps in 2016. Bright. Fast. Fun. Loud. CITRA.

Track Name: Settle Down
Can’t get away, get away, get away like you did
Can’t break away, break away, break away like I did
I know that you won’t believe it, but every now and then I settle down

I’m here to stay, here to stay, here to stay like I did
Won’t run away, run away, run away like you did
I know that I won’t believe it, but every now and then I settle down
You come back I won’t stay sober, I want it, I need it, I can’t, just give up now

So hold on
Why can’t you just hold on
I can’t give it up
I can’t give it up
My right, my right to run away

Won’t make mistakes, let it break, let it break like I did
Can’t let you leave, get away, get away like you did
I know that I won’t believe it, but every now and then I settle down
I don’t care, I won’t be sober, I want it, I need it, I can’t just settle down

Wait
Don’t become
Just a silhouette
Change
Will shine more
Light on me
Track Name: Ocean
Life, my god, it’s harsh
I felt it all the time
Before you grabbed onto my soul
And pulled me in
The water’s so refreshing

Loneliness it seems
Is only in the air I breath
Before I saw you there
Beneath the waves
Crashing up at me

Stay below
I know
I fall into your ocean

I still can’t believe
I fell into your soul
Or did you pull me down below
Don’t care, don’t care, don’t care because I liked it

Every night my dreams
Are filled with all the scenes
From life, From life up in the air
Nightmares nightmares from when you never met me

I cannot conceive
A time that I would leave
Not for the world
With a world so blue
Of which I’ve been consumed
I feel at home

And I know before I die
I’ll see that world before my eyes
And Feel the things I’ve read in books
And seen on screens, because of that first look
You gave me that first night
I was nearly paralyzed
I dove
Track Name: Apologize
Living and lying
Or dying and trying
The choices that change our ways
We are we eager
To prove that we see clear
To others that think the same

We all want to change the world
For a better life

Talk all day is wasted
Say this shit and that shit
‘Bout all those who say the same
Sit and do nothing
But piss on the wrong thing
What gives you the right to say

We all want to change the world
In a different kind of way
For a better kind of life


Got to say
That you know
You can’t lie
You apologize to make yourself feel better

Drinking and talking
It turns into walking
You’ve run out of things to say
Back to the drinking
To stop all the thinking
To feel like you’re miles away

World is not changing
Despite all the hating
It’s easier to bitch and pray
Living and lying
Or dying and trying
The choices that change our ways
Track Name: Feelin' Alive
Was away from the microphone
At the time I was feeling so, so low
I was never gonna say goodbye
Every moment makes me feel so high

Can’t wait can’t know, can’t talk about it
Got this feeling and know that I can’t control it
Gonna rail on the microphone
I’m finally feelin’, I’m finally feelin’
I’m finally feeling alive

CHORUS
I’m finally feeling alive
I’ma live not die tonight
I’m finally feeling alive
I can’t wait for all the lights
I’m finally feeling alive
I’ma live not die tonight
Because the road I choose, Ain’t walked by few

Waking up with this attitude
In the world and I’m feelin’ so, so rude
Gonna rail on this microphone
We’re all playing and it feel so, oh oh oh

They say hello
I say hello
I feel time start to go so, so slow
When the lights go down
I can feel the sound
Of emotion let go of my mind
Falling away
Falling away
Falling away
I’m finally feelin’, I’m finally feelin’
I’m finally feeling alive
Track Name: In the Ground
I got all these bills to pay
But you know I won’t be payin’
Since I have been fired
System’s fucked n’ so are you
Just wanna do what I wanna do
Gotta eat and I’m tired

Workin’ hard at the wrong jobs
Making people happy when I’m not
I’m just meat for hire
In the mirror, what do I see
Says fuck you, what you done to me
Need to be inspired

I’ll be making it up until I die
I’ll be making up for all the time

Lay me down
With my head in the ground
If I can’t get through doing what I love
I will simply drown

Know myself, what can I do
Sure as shit won’t be pleasing you
My life has transpired
Seen the world in the light of day
Now it’s time for night to play
I won’t be a liar

Lookin’ for what I have lost
And I think I found it at a cost
Of months and days and hours
Damn near wasted century
Working just so I can eat
I need to be inspired

I’ll be making it up until I die
I’ll be making up for all the time
