about

Mora Mora Los Angeles, California

A rock quintet from Los Angeles, we came together as a group of friends backing Matias, but the group grew to have a life of it’s own, bigger than anyone of us. So we’re a band now. We're stoked to share what we do with you.
We've been described as the sonic baby of Radiohead, Foo Fighters, MuteMath, U2... think weird nerd punk with a pop twist. Really we’re just trying to make something honest.

Track Name: Don't Say
It's been a while since you talked to me
It's been a while since we chatted
And I'll admit I've been so busy
But it's been a while since this mattered

And I sit and pull my hair
Ignore me on this frozen bathroom floor
As I'm begging you to answer
I'm begging you to answer

Don't say you promise
Don't say you mean it
Don't say you love me
If you won't show me

And I was trapped in a room for you
Breathing nothing but your song
And I was writing your symphony
With no one singing along

And my tired broken and soul
Is left a wide and gaping hole
As I'm begging you to answer
I'm begging you to answer

Don't say you promise
Don't say you mean it
Don't say you love me
If you won't show me

I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't wanna hear another word come out your
I don't wanna
I don't wanna hear

Don't say you promise
Don't say you mean it
Don't say you love me
If you won't show me
Track Name: Karleen
One little bag for the weekend trip
I was keeping it small cause I made these quick
So hesitant to see you
The smaller the town, the less there is to do
We were kissing because you said you wanted to
I wish I hadn’t stopped you

Karleen, I was

So scared you’d always be
Back home in love with me
That I could never see
My heart agreed

Now things I didn’t do
Are done by someone new
Too late to say to you
I loved you too

Loading the truck, the back window is blocked
You’re taking it all so you don’t come back
You’ve never been so certain
You’re taking him with because he said he’d go
I’m finding I hope Seattle slits his throat
I’m wishing I’d done something to sop you
Cause

Karleen, I am

So scared you’ll never be
Back home in love with me,
Back home to finally see
My heart agrees

Now things I didn’t do
Are done by someone new
Too late to say to you
I loved you too

Come back to me
Silence breaks me
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry

Karleen

Oh if you’ll ever be
Back home in love with me,
I’ll run right home and scream
My heart agrees

And things I didn’t do
Are things I’ll do and do
And I can say to you
I love you too
Track Name: Flora
I never wanted to live far away
So as I gently pack your things and pull away
Oh

It never was enough to come stay
because after a time it’s time to go away
Oh

This goodbye is much too hard, the tears flow
Maybe if we’d had less time apart, I’d let go
God, this farewell will break my heart,
and I don’t want to leave

I’ve always wondered where we’d be today
Oh if you had never shared and let us fly away
Oh

But I’ll cut these borderlines, just to say
Hello and how are you, just one more day

This goodbye is much too hard, the tears flow
Maybe if we’d had less time apart, I’d let go
God, this farewell will break my heart,
and I don’t want to leave

Oh

This goodbye is much too hard, the tears flow
Maybe if we’d had less time apart, I’d let go
God, this farewell will break my heart,
and I don’t want to leave

and I don’t want to leave
Track Name: Write Me A Letter
Girl, go and write me a letter
With apathy that tears me to shreds
Scribble down fast how you could do better
How quickly I’ll get out of your head

Between the lines tell me I’m pathetic
A fool to think that you gave a damn
Say the joke was on me, say you never were begging
Say anything that tells me I’m wrong

Cause I can’t go on like this
I can’t forgive myself

Smile at sound of ripping it open
The whisper of pages unfolding goes just like you planned
Crush me as I regret I was standing
Physically taken aback by all that i read
Girl give all my actions demanded
Cripple me cripple me so I’ll never forget

Cause I can’t go on like this
I can’t forgive myself

But you stare silently
Your eyes reveal you’re never mad at me
Even when I used you blatantly
Still you stare so silently

Girl, go and write me a letter
Hurt me for hurting you so I can’t do it again
Track Name: Notice Me
Today you failed to introduce yourself
You shook their hands but never let me out
You sounded honest as you told bout some problems
And a worried thought
But good dishonesty has honest spots

I wouldn’t ever say you mean to lie
As we have barely met but once or twice
You might’ve seen me in the deepest darkest corners
Of your shadow life
Where no one’s looking and you see yourself

I’m stuck in here always
But you never notice me
I’m stuck in here always
But you never notice

You are my prison twenty layers deep
You’re painting locks with personalities
You quickly covered up the cracks
With fear of facing honest truth
I think you know it hurts to meet the real you

I’m stuck in here always
But you never notice me
I’m stuck in here always
But you never notice me

I know it hurts
I know you’re horrified
Oh rip off your layers that you might
Know you

I‘m stuck in here always
But you never notice me
I’m stuck in here always
But you never notice me
