I don't know if it's just me, but whenever I listen to citizen I fall into a trance.

love the grunge vibes on this song. Very dark, very mid-90s emo.

So thankful to have had this band with me through the years of growing up. Sad to see it come to an end now, gonna miss screaming at your shows. You’ve been there for me and others. You’ve inspired so many of us to make our own art. We love you forever Citizen.

Mat's vocals are so raw and chilling. This song hooked me with the first verse, like gah damn.

Author — Jada Koehler


I watched you burn and I felt it.
You're spitting words like you're someone else.
And I watched you run,
I was screaming and following you down.
It seems I'm stuck in the promise you made,
I’m counting out.

I don't want to know.
If I could catch you once,
I’d see you right through.

You said you'd stay, and you promised.
I finally see you out.
Why'd you wait for the summer to chew and spit me out?
I sit awake and wait impatiently.
The same mistakes are waiting to be made.

I felt something that is in me change when I followed you down.

I don't want to know.
Wish I could write you off,
I see you right through.
I don't want to know how you could just set me off.
I see you right through.

It's so weird seeing guys I knew before they even formed Citizen become so big in their scene. Proud of them for never giving up.

May be called “summer” but this gives off winter vibes for me

This band gives me that feeling of when I first found alternative music and loved it for the intense raw emotions it displayed. God I love this song.

I just saw Citizen play their first show in Sydney, Aus. They were so good! It was also Mat's birthday and the band put on party hats xD

The intro is sooo beautiful! as soon as he says "I watched you burn" you can tell this song is gonna be a masterpiece.

I'm so happy for drake dropping his rap career to make some good old Pop punk. But why did he bleach his skin ?
