The first single from the duo's upcoming album Wake the Queens, "What's On Your Mind, Kid?" perfectly combines the soul influences of singer/guitarist Teneia Sanders-Eichelberger and the rock influences of bassist Ben Eichelberger.


They say the truth is the number one stopper
They say you think but you never want to speak up
They say you hide and there you’ll be safe, but
What’s on your mind, kid? What’s on your mind, kid?

They say out loud that will never be me
But they’re the main ones lying through their teeth
‘Cause there’s a riot in everyone you meet, but
What’s on your mind, kid? What’s on your mind, kid?

I’m hot, I’m ready
I want you to save me from myself, baby

There’s a story that’s happening to me
Put it up online pretend to be happy
Put it out my mind, pretend to be happy
I’m okay, I’m okay, baby

Where you need to go baby?
Like Carol Anne, go back to the light
Face your life put up a fight
What’s on your mind, kid? What’s on your mind, kid?

I’m lonely, I’m hurting
I want you to save me from myself

What’s on your mind, kid?

Take a picture perfect girl in a picture perfect world and show her what to do
Just pretend it’s all real and everyone will believe you, everyone will believe you
While you’re lying to yourself all the cracks will start to show and you’ve got nowhere to hide
Now you’re just surviving, just surviving, hoping for the best and I’ll say

Baby, I want you to save you from yourself

What’s on your mind, kid?
