KALI MASI Chicago, Illinois

Kali Masi is a punk rock band from Chicago’s ever-ripening music scene. Kali Masi is clever and cathartic, offering melodies sculpted around angles and curves that will pull even the most jaded punks in from the back of the room. Their singles Jejune and Sputter showcase the bands aggressive and meditative roots while foreshadowing the sure-fire full-length Wind Instrument to be released in 2017. ... more

Track Name: Sputter
Was there another life for me?
Another trail to blaze in a parallel time
Leading to riches, social status, stable income– Maybe.
Maybe I could have found a way to make my father proud.
In another life I could have chosen,
But not this time.

"And the days are not full enough"
To lift me up before they come
Each day arriving as it leaves
I mean to clean but never leave

And I know that there's a time and place for conversations like this.
As I grip the steering wheel I feel my mind slip–
Into another place. Into another time.
Familiar faces, mouthing phrases...
Waving goodbye.

"And the nights are not full enough"
I drag the pen to call your bluff.
I'd ask the moon to drink the stars
And hang itself above my yard

I don't think I could take another day of this.
Do I look as sick as I feel?
I know I can't fix the unrepairable.
I know that I won't be held responsible for the gaps you've refused to fill
I don't think that I could take another day of it.
My hearts so heavy now.
