about

The Scratches Columbus, Ohio

The Scratches are a melodic punk band from Columbus, Ohio. They're bringing back pop-punk from before it was a dirty word, mixing in plenty of catchy hooks with skate punk double time rhythms, ripping melodic bass lines, tag team vocals, and 4 part harmonies. It’s fun, it’s catchy, and it’s the real deal.

Track Name: I Can't Hear You
Who would go my way? And would it be ok?
You said that I won’t make it on my own
Could I find release? Or maybe just some peace?
My ears are filled with all the doubt you’ve sown

I listened to your poison, I believed
So going deaf could save me

You said that I would not survive, that you kept me alive
I took to heart and fell apart
I heard you say that I’d be dead
I heard your voice inside my head
I can’t hear you now

Who will know my name? And will it be the same?
You said that only you could understand
Should I trust in me? Or change who I will be?
I got here listening to your demands

I heard all of the hurt that you conceived
So going deaf could save me

You said that I would not survive, that you kept me alive
I took to heart and fell apart
I heard you say that I’d be dead
I heard your voice inside my head
I can’t hear you now

I listened to your poison, I believed
I heard all of the hurt that you conceived
So going deaf could save me

You said that I would not survive, that you kept me alive
I took to heart and fell apart
I heard you say that I’d be dead
I heard your voice inside my head
I can’t hear you now
Track Name: Pull The Plug
Do you remember when we all had time to grow?
Those times were swept under the rug
All those tears that you cried, did they help you survive?
Like a replacement for a drug
We all wanna go somewhere we don’t know
A place to hide from the misfortune
And this pain comes in bursts, and it gets worse and worse
I think it’s time to pull the plug

It’s time to, it’s time to, it’s time to…
Time to pull the plug
It’s time to, it’s time to, it’s time to…
Time to pull the plug

The words that come off cold, they chill you to the bone
Just like a song that you once heard
Your identity becomes less clear to see
Your edges gettin’ kinda blurred
We all wanna go somewhere we don’t know
A place to hide from the misfortune
And this pain comes in bursts, and it gets worse and worse
I think it’s time to pull the plug

It’s time to, it’s time to, it’s time to…
Time to pull the plug
It’s time to, it’s time to, it’s time to…
Time to pull the plug
Track Name: Song With No Words
Someone is calling, a voice misplaced
Words fade away
I can’t make out the name or the face
Or what I want to say

My tribute, blank pages
My songs of memory have no words

Make it all up as I go
Play along just like I know the words to my own song
So I’ll sing your song again
It allows me to pretend you’re here where you belong

There are no words, but you heal in time
Or so they say
Don’t know the reason, can’t hear the rhyme
But I’ll find a way

My tribute, blank pages
My song for Valentine has no words

Make it all up as I go
Play along just like I know the words to my own song
So I’ll sing your song again
It allows me to pretend you’re here where you belong
Here where you belong
No words to my own song...
Track Name: Lipstick Kiss
I know the truth you bend is proof
That you don’t want to hurt me
Hide from your shame to stall my pain
Avoid the tragedy
Run from the past to make this last
So full of good intentions
But your kiss strings from all the things
I know you’ll never mention

The lies are showing on your face
The lies are flowing through your veins
The lies are spilling from your lipstick kiss
Your kiss is poison to me

I let you slide, enjoy the ride
Make believe that I don’t care
Embrace the bliss of ignorance
But I can’t stop the nightmares
That haunt my sleep, and I can’t keep
This act up just to save us
Your kiss betrays all of the ways
You sabotaged my trust

The lies are showing on your face
The lies are flowing through your veins
The lies are spilling from your lipstick kiss
Your kiss is poison to me
Track Name: It's All Right
But it’s all right, just another day
Where we do what it takes to show everyone that we’re ok
But we’re not, and we don’t know why
We seem to find a way to make the same mistakes
That always lead us back to the start

When we were much younger
We could always fall back
And still not fall behind
But now that we’re much older
Every day we stand still
There’s much less time to find

A path that avoids regret
A plan with a chance to win

But it’s all right, just another day
Where we do what it takes to show everyone that we’re ok
But we’re not, and we don’t know why
We seem to find a way to make the same mistakes
That always lead us back to the start

Now the days they fly past
As we keep resetting
For one more wasted night
The best that we can hope
Giving ourselves that pep-talk
Just to reach the finish line

No paths that avoid regret
No plans with a chance to win

But it’s all right, just another day
Where we do what it takes to show everyone that we’re ok
But we’re not, and we don’t know why
We seem to find a way to make the same mistakes
That always lead us back to the start
