Trapdoor Social performed their song, “Fine On My Own,” during a special live performance at JBTV Studios! The band’s founding members Merritt Graves and Skylar Funk met at Pomona College while in an environmental studies program and began to make music together. Their first EP, Death of a Friend, was released in 2012, and multiple singles from it received alternative radio airplay. Trapdoor Social is very involved in humanitarian efforts, and has used their music to organize successful fundraisers for causes such as alternative energy and school music programs.

Check out the lyrics below:

Life is running on low
But I know that I can make it if I
Climb up out of this hole
‘Cuz no one’s gonna save me this time
No god to strengthen my hold
This is my way to find
I’m fine on my own

I need this to hold me up
On Sundays I can’t get enough
But I love all the structure and grooves we have worn
Honest like in my cups
Survival’s my only love
And I won’t have no world that could end when I’m gone
What keeps us out of sin when there’s no fear of falling in
All these kids think they know how the earth came around
The lies I’d be confessing like a mind lost but a blessing
Everything we believed to this point has been wrong


Now school me ‘cuz this party’s starting
Clues keep on marching on
But I go where the wind blows and question no one
Who told you gods were watching
Truth over shocking talk
All alone on this road you’ve been walking along
When light leaks through the trees you’ll hear the wise whisper of
Tell you throw away what you own and forget what you know
But far gone in reflection you’ll be hard up for the lesson
We celebrate what we fear, there’s been science enough

And I know where to find what can save me
But am I living
My vision
Goes hazy
Give it time
Gimme life
Is it worth trading
Is it my
All this and I’m fading away
