SNST Chicago, Illinois

Featuring Chris Broach & Steve Znavor

SNST seamlessly blends electronic & organic instrumentation into a unique amalgam of music that's as apt to make you dance as it is to make you think. “Steve & I both approach this band as to what's best for the song. We both have a similar aesthetic but we're coming from different places musically. It allows us to combine our ideas into a cohesive sound." ... more

Track Name: '76-'78
"’76-’78"
lyrics by Chris Broach

You know that we
never had to be
always perfect
like anyone else… everyone else
I took your picture then
and taped it to the wall
you took it down and said
I was way off

there’s no way no way, oh no
to say we didn’t try, oh!
no way to say goodbye
at least we never had to lie
I’ve got your pictures
and I’m conflicted
I know it’s over
this is the hardest part
oh wasted time you know
oh wasted time we tried it all

if we had to be
like you said we’d be
we’d never make it
like everyone else… anyone else
I took your picture then
and taped it to the wall
you took it down and said
I was way off

there’s no way no way, oh no
to say we didn’t try, oh!
no way to say goodbye
at least we never had to lie
I’ve got your pictures
and I’m conflicted
I know it’s over
this is the hardest part
oh wasted time you know
oh wasted time we tried it all

like you said it would be
never thought it would be
like you said it would be

there’s no way no way, oh no
to say we didn’t try, oh!
no way to say goodbye
at least we never had to lie
I’ve got your pictures
and I’m conflicted
I know it’s over
this is the hardest part
oh, wasted time you know
oh, wasted time we tried it all
Track Name: Remember How It Ends
"Remember How It Ends"
lyrics by Chris Broach

As you tread black water
and your body’s giving in
and you’re sinking
you haven’t had enough
if you just burn all your bridges now

always see through always see
always remember how it ends
always see though
can you hear me?

as you wait for the bottom
and you try to take a breath
you need it
you haven’t lived enough
if you just break all your promises

always see through always see
always remember how it ends
always see though
can you hear me?

blue picture
this circle
one headlight
and you still pretend
red paint now
big bright lights
wet pavement
rests the broken glass

always see through always see
always remember how it ends
always see though
can you hear me?
Track Name: Maybe We've Got It
"Maybe We’ve Got It"
lyrics by Chris Broach

Don’t believe
you fight enough
do you practice
are you gonna’ see it through
out of touch
so come undone
don’t give up don’t give up
see it through

we’ve got it
maybe we’ve got it

money is not the goal
to carry you

should you be
do you fight for it
do you do it
are you gonna’ see it through
don’t do much
for everyone
don’t chase it don’t chase it
see it through

we’ve got it
maybe we’ve got it

money is not the goal
to carry you
Track Name: Running From the Girl
"Running From the Girl"
lyrics by Chris Broach

Pick up the receiver
I think it’s off the hook
don’t think I wanna’ see her
are you getting this?
try to lose my number
don’t think it’s in the book
can’t even believe her
are you getting this?

running from the girl
who can’t find me anyway
running from the girl
who can’t find me…

don’t think I could conceive it
she’s got it in her head
don’t ever wanna’ meet her
are you getting this?

running from the girl
who can’t find me anyway
running from the girl
who can’t find me…

are you gonna’ call?
watch things fall apart

I see you
I hear you
I need you
I miss you

running from the girl
who can’t find me anyway
running from the girl
who can’t find me
Track Name: National Monument
"National Monument"
lyrics by Chris Broach

Let’s build for today
let’s take what we can
let’s finish them off
with capitol business
let’s leave them to rest
in capital debt
and ask them for more
to pick up the pieces
and you can keep all of your capital interest

don’t start… don’t ask the questions
just listen to the television
don’t shake the house

we build what we want
we take what we can
we leave them with just
the cash for the diplomat
and you can keep all of your capital interest

don’t start don’t ask the questions
just listen to the television
don’t ask… don’t ask for anything
just listen to the radio
don’t shake the house
Track Name: Phoenix 1986
"Phoenix 1986"
lyrics by Chris Broach

This is where we live
this is what we dream of
this is who we are
this is where we’re going
this is where we’ve been
and this is how we’re actin’ out
this is what we do
and this is how we measure up

Don’t let them…
say you can’t move on or you’re sick of trying
say you’re nearly there but you never finish
say you’re through with it but you never started
say you tried and gave up in 1986

this is how we pick it up
and never let it go
when you think we’ve had enough
we come and ask for more
this is where we left it
‘cause that’s just how we are
never thought we’d ever leave
and we never will no we never will

Don’t let them…
say you can’t move on or you’re sick of trying
say you’re nearly there but you never finish
say you’re through with it but you never started
say you tried and gave up in 1986

video games
a small arcade
cold war static
prep for the best times

Don’t let them…
say you can’t move on or you’re sick of trying
say you’re nearly there but you never finish
say you’re through with it but you never started
say you tried and gave up in 1986
Track Name: Hold Fast
"Hold Fast"
lyrics by Chris Broach

It’s just enough to keep us runnin’
but not enough to say we’re out of control
it’s just enough to keep us up at night
a chemical to pull us out and ask for more
Hold fast!
hold onto somethin’
Hold fast!
just gimme’ somethin’
enough to keep us out of trouble
but not enough to say we’re out of control

everything you want
everything you need
a dream and a feeling

Turn up the radio!
Turn up the radio!
Turn up the radio! Yeah! Yeah!
if you don’t wanna’ go home

it’s just enough to keep us waking up
but not enough to say that we are not alone
it’s just enough to keep us shaking
or relapse into the life we had before
Hold fast!
hold onto somethin’
Hold fast!
just gimme’ somethin’
enough to keep us out of trouble
but not enough to say we’re out of control

everything you want
everything you need
a dream and a feeling

Turn up the radio!
Turn up the radio!
Turn up the radio! Yeah! Yeah!
if you don’t wanna’ go home

you can lock the door
and you can burn
you can ask for more
Track Name: Star Sick
"Star Sick"
lyrics by Chris Broach

Inspiration zero
escape this one hundred
get caffeinated get caffeinated
you gotta’ be selfish
we’re working six feet underground
…it’s nothing

this basic, it’s killin’
this basic, it’s killin’ me
this basic, it’s killin’
this basic, it’s killin’ you

you gotta’ be on it
call me a friend
call me your best-kept partner
we’ll be returned to ash
forever working for the sound
of nothing

this basic, it’s killin’
this basic, it’s killin’ me
this basic, it’s killin’
this basic, it’s killin’ you
Track Name: Get Over Yourself
"Get Over Yourself"
lyrics by Chris Broach

When you get over yourself
we can move on
when factor in your friends
you seem so young
you’re looking for something
I can’t deliver
you’re acting like someone
I can’t live with

you don’t believe in me
like I used to believe in you

can you finish your drink nowj
so we can leave
when you’re talking with my friends
you seem naïve
you’re turning this over
and I can’t wait for you
you’re flipping what I say
and I think I’m leaving

you don’t believe in me
like I used to believe in you

you’re showing your age

even when I say it’s done
you don’t listen, anyway
Track Name: Don't Forget
"Don't Forget"
lyrics by Chris Broach

I try to be just what you need
let’s move on let’s move up
I try to be for you and me
let’s move on let’s move up

don’t think about it
don’t forget to turn out the lights
don’t forget to say goodnight
don’t forget to breathe
don’t forget to dream

I try to be just what you need
we move on we move up
I just can’t see what we’re meant to be
I just don’t dream of you

think about it
don’t forget to turn out the lights
don’t forget to say goodnight
to say goodbye
don’t forget to breathe

don’t forget to turn out the lights
don’t forget to say goodnight
to say goodbye
you know we gotta’ let it go
you know we can’t make it so
don’t forget to turn out the lights
don’t forget to say goodnight
to say goodbye.
