Appears On



[Verse 1]

Gentleman place your debts

payment in full for a future you

I think we can all agree

The ending is off to a great start

The present is soon replaced

In small increments, attention fades

Wandering of the ways

The house will collect its mark


How do we keep making all the same mistakes

We'd rather have the misery than growing pains

[Verse 2]

I chose a mystery

Went there alone intentionally

I had to forgive myself

For grieving imaginary loss

You'll pay with a life not lived

You'll pay with each thought of what could have been

Though nothing adds to the cost

Like missing the ride you're on


How do we keep making all the same mistakes

We'd rather have the misery than growing pains

(Growing pains)

[Musical Interlude]

[Verse 3]

Gentleman place your debts

I'd wish you good luck but luck isn't in

A driver and passenger

Don't go the same place


How do we keep making all the same mistakes

we rather have the misery than growing pains

Recording Details

Drummer Zach Lind shared the following on regarding release information for Place Your Debts and Something Loud.

"Thing is none of us have ever said we aren’t interested in releasing albums in the future. I think we all need to do some comprehensive reading exercises. For NOW we are doing this. Truth is after our touring cycle for Surviving vanished into thin air, the band body clock needs some time to adjust. In the end the thing that prob guides what we do is the music more than anything else. If the pieces feel like they are fitting together in a cohesive vision then that usually points to a larger collection of tunes. Sometimes, especially after releasing 5 albums in a row without an EP or a major stand alone single release, it’s nice to try something different." [8]

“Let’s be honest……this debate between albums vs. smaller releases are not had internally in a band that has 12 cohesive bangers in the bag. This is a direction we are taking after being honest with ourselves and our limitations coming out of Covid. It’s possible whatever we release could be physically packaged in a way that makes sense but we don’t know that quite yet. This will all prob make more sense when you hear place your debts.” [9]
