about

Shooting Down Asteroids began in 2015 as the solo DIY recording project of DC-based singer-songwriter Carlos Martin Vizcarra. Strong vocals drive the songs, combining melodic hooks worthy of pop compositions with emotive lyrics that would stand up in a coffee house showcase. Most songs tell a deeply personal story and display a range of influences from the post punk 80's to indie to acoustic rock and pop punk. Distorted chords breaking suddenly into even the softest song provide a touchstone of continuity through an eclectic collection of musical themes.

Since its establishment, Shooting Down Asteroids has expanded to a four piece, including Ethan Machurat on bass, Oli Haas on guitar, and Nick Tag on drums, and is regularly playing live shows, working on visibility and building for the future.

Track Name: The Margins
I exist in all the spaces in between
At least some of them
That's where you could look for me.
In between the lines it's so easy
To be lost where no one can see.

I do just fine
I feel just fine
I am just fine
Well
I might

I never meant
Never meant to be
Just anything
Is better than
These dreams that keep slipping

I never meant
Never meant to be
At the margins
Just anything is better than
Anything

I do just fine
I feel just fine
I am just fine
Well
I might

I do just fine
(I exist so come find me)
I feel just fine
(I exist so come find me)
I am just fine
Well
I might
Track Name: Blissful Idiot
You should have known what was laid out in front of you.
You should know just who you are.
Instead you just stand there like a blissful idiot
Guess it's worked for you so far.

But this time there's a body lying in the street.
This time all your victims have faces.
And this the blast wave chopped them down while they ran.

We all know
What's unacceptable now,
What's so embarrassing now,
What's unacceptable now,
Thanks to you, thanks to you.

All of this time you just took me,
You grabbed me,
You molded me right onto you.
Then without warning you threw me behind you,
You said that you didn't have a clue.

But this time there's a body lying in the street.
This time all your victims have faces.
And this the blast wave chopped them down while they ran.

We all know
What's unacceptable now,
What's so embarrassing now,
What's unacceptable now,
Thanks to you, thanks to you.

I don't every feel miserable and frustrated.
I never let myself be manipulated.

You should have known what was laid out in front of you.
You should know just who you are.
Instead you just stand there like a blissful idiot
But it's worked for you so far.

But this time there's a body lying in the street.
This time all your victims have faces.
And this the blast wave chopped them down while they ran.

We all know
What's unacceptable now,
What's so embarrassing now,
What's unacceptable now,
Thanks to you, thanks to you.

We all know
What's unacceptable now,
What's so embarrassing now,
What's unacceptable now,
Thanks to you, thanks to you.
Track Name: Drown
We hurtle through space faster than a bullet from a gun.
We're tied together fish.
And every season when the waves roll in it's clear:
For us there's no escaping this.

Our sinking ship is spinning,
It's just the world turning round.
Our sinking ship is burning,
And we're all gonna drown.

Some people say there's absolutely nothing going on.
Republicans, they don't know shit.
Denying science up until they're swimming in their graves,
And then there's no denying it.

Our sinking ship is spinning,
It's just the world turning round.
Our sinking ship is burning,
And we're all gonna drown.

It's getting.
It's getting hot in here.
It's getting.
It's getting hot in here.
It's getting.
It's getting hot in here.

Our sinking ship is spinning,
It's just the world turning round.
Our sinking ship is burning,
And we're all gonna drown.

Our sinking ship is spinning,
We just can't turn this shit around.
Our sinking ship is burning,
And we're all going, we're all going,
We're all going, we're all going
Down.
Track Name: Phosphorescence
I won't be the one left waiting this time.
I won't be the one to say, that this is not the way that it will be.
This time this is not game.
This time, this time, take all of me away.
And everything we said, let it all evaporate.
Please don't make me.
Don't make me.

Waiting drives me insane.
Cascading florescent showers of pain died a red hue.
Phosphorescence underneath a full moon.

For another day I pray...

Another time I beg, filling space up in my head
Till thoughts are gone.
Can't plead for very much longer.
Please please just don't speak.
Like back and wash the brain away.
My racked bones can't shake away
One more fleeting hour of pain.
But in the skin's where it begins, so don't speak.
Wash the brain away, watch the blood flow,
In another hour I'll take it all away.

Waiting drives me insane.
Cascading florescent showers of pain died a red hue.
Phosphorescence underneath a full moon.

So close your eyes and let me watch and pretend,
That longer's not what's ahead.
The image scars a place lodged somewhere behind my sinuses,
Waiting to be burned another time.
Is this all there is?
Is this all there is?
Insanity and pressure facing change,
I cannot measure all the ways that your cries
Reverberate in my head.

Waiting drives me insane.
Cascading florescent showers of pain died a red hue.
Phosphorescence underneath a full moon.
Is this all there is?
Track Name: Fireflies
Devastated,
Deviated,
Hiding out like fireflies in the rain.
Necessitated armor plating,
Watching everything you thought slip away.

You never understood where anything I ever said
Was coming from, but
You always kept coming back again,
Never saying that you thought everything was gone.

And I don't know what it'd mean,
But if I could take away everything you're feeling
Would you disappear forever
Or would it all be like it used to be?

I hear you now.
I see you there.
You're crying for the thousandth time.
You always say that I never cared,
But I can't tell you just how wrong you are.

It takes all I got
To make it through
Another moment alive.

I wish could make you know
I never meant to hurt you so.

So where do we go from here?
Is everything predestined to keep raining down?
I don't want you to disappear,
But at the same time I don't know
How to keep you around.

And I remember all the days
We watched the fireflies
As the lights faded away.
And as I watch you sleep, I wonder:
Could we get back there someday?

I hear you now.
I see you there.
You're crying for the thousandth time.
You always say that I never cared,
But I can't tell you just how wrong you are.

It takes all I got
To make it through
Another moment alive.

I wish could make you know
I never meant to hurt
Make you know
I never meant to hurt you
Make you know
I never meant to hurt you so.
Track Name: 100 MPH
Remember the day when we drove
So far away so fast you'd never
Gone a hundred miles and hour before?

The way you looked at me
Your eyes were staring so intently
I don't think I'd ever fallen so far before.

And the night we snuck into your house
Cause everyone was sleeping
But still we went through the front door.

And you were so surprised when everyone
Told you they knew everything.
Didn't have to hide no more.

I feel like if I could just go far enough or fast enough
Somehow somewhere some way someday I'd find you again.

And no one ever knew the way I felt when I was near you.
I don't think I ever even told you.
But every time you spoke all I could do is smile
And all I ever wanted to do was to hold you.

I feel like if I could just go far enough or fast enough
Somehow somewhere some way someday I'd find you again.

And all those things I never realized and
Never knew the time
Was running away and your smile
Was going out just like a light.
There's so many things
I wish I would've said but now you're gone.
Sometimes I wish we'd just kept driving,
Driving on and on and on.

I feel like if I could just go far enough or fast enough
Somehow somewhere some way someday I'd find you again.

I remember the day when I drove
So far away so fast away from you.
I never even told you I didn't want to.
Track Name: Go Away
Tell me why does this have to fall apart
On this cold January night.
As the light fades in the sky
You take your last look.
Try as I might
I never really got your way of running away.
But I let it all lay where it lay.

You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something.
You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something.
You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something,
Too late.

And that look in your eyes
The last time I ever saw you in that house
Almost surprised me with ferocity
And pain it let out.
But still you said to me
The leaving had already been done,
Like after all this was the last one.

You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something.
You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something.
You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something,
Too late.

And I count the seconds that go by.
I'm flying on a plane.
And every minute I can see inside my mind
That you're packing everything.
But I'm not leaving, you're the one
I always know to leave that to.
I'm the one who was coming home to you.

You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something.
You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something.
You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something,
Too late.

Tell me why
Does this have to fall apart
On this cold January night?
As the light fades in the sky
You close the door one last time.
I never really got your way of running away
And though I'm not there I know
This ends today.
This ends because you
Go away.

You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something.
You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something.
You go away, you go away, you're always searching for something,
Too late.
