Retro Nerd Pop/Rock

When asked who do you try to sound like. "We can't sound like anyone else so why try."

 

When asked to define the genre of their music.? "We mulled and meandered over that one for a long while; a complete waste of time!"

 

It's not garage band, nor is it big studio perfect. It's not current but it's got some catchy hooks. Let's call it "Retro Nerd Pop Rock"

It's Official: A 1980's garage band was taken over by something that sounds kinda nerdy.

Hit Record

we’re playing tonight, right

we got tonal control mix down

radar beyond eyesight, hey

changing all that we know now

 

we got a song, make a cool record now

they sing along, running in their cold veins

we got a song, make a hit record now

they sing along, take away the hot pain

making a play, changing everything we do

come along way, floating in a sound field

making a play, every night stage is new

come along way, dreaming on a tape reel

 

we’re going tonight, front row

sound wall pumping gonna mow me down

rattle bones feel the motion, hey

changing all that we feel now

 

we got a song, make a cool record now

they sing along, running in their cold veins

we got a song, make a hit record now

they sing along, take away the hot pain

making a play, changing everything we do

come along way, floating in a sound field

making a play, every night stage is new

come along way, dreaming on a tape reel

 

and the singer don’t change

the song re-arrange

every town is so strange

hours driving cross range

now we take plane

feeding the machine

and the singer don’t change

and the songs don’t change

and the planes don’t change

but we work until we bleed, we got a song

 

Playing tonight, got a hit record

Wild Side, Crazy Ride

I will behave, running from the wild side

was a close shave, took me for a crazy ride

I was naive, following my wild side

first time we seen, I went on a crazy ride

mama called me a sweet young boy

if she only knew the inner joy

I would receive when we stayed out late

and snuck a full keg through Johnson back gate

and that time we did something stupid

follow fools, party in the neighborhood

tore it up and a fight broke out

angry hearts never do no good, what?

I will behave, running from the wild side

was a close shave, took me for a crazy ride

I was naive, following my wild side

first time we seen, I went on a crazy ride

and that time thought we were so cleaver

breaking rules, people see we tough enough

just one time teasing Johnny B

bully heart never know true love, what?

I will behave, running from the wild side

was a close shave, took me for a crazy ride

I was naive, following my wild side

first time we seen, I went on a crazy ride

cutting class on our senior day

driving no where in your fathers big car

breaking windows out on crater lake

lost the car keys watch you fall apart

 

I will behave, running from the wild side

was a close shave, took me for a crazy ride

I was naive, following my wild side

first time we seen, I went on a crazy ride

Swagger

gimme gimme cold cat Camaro

gimme that bad boss Mustang

today cruise day, sleep in tomorrow

gimme gimme got swagger

 

Davis gave a shout out from his 60’s Chevrolet

I said hey alright, and we started our mental shame game

bumper pushing old pickup against your 1-9-5-6 ford

burning J’s on county highway, 40 foot till the snow-fell

 

gimme gimme cold cat Camaro

gimme that bad boss Mustang

today cruise day, sleep in tomorrow

gimme gimme got swagger

 

Morris went all out  was the first one in for us

ran that long GTO fell behind that school bus

and that hot black chevy nova, tuned for the short run

pulled wheelie from dead stop, nearly flipped on everyone

 

gimme gimme cold cat Camaro

gimme that bad boss Mustang

today cruise day, sleep in tomorrow

gimme gimme got swagger

 

Arizona take you for a ride

then were gonna cross that hot red line

tuned it up ready for the big show

strap you in,  ready set go

Trouble In You

waiting all , waiting all

waiting all , waiting all night

nothing will change, unless you get clear sight

get that stuff out your head, trouble in you

it’s time

 

afraid you will, afraid you will

afraid you will, disappoint

ready for change, your mind so out of joint

get that stuff out your head, trouble in you

it’s time

 

living for, living for 

living for, living for more

let’s re-arrange, you know for sure

get that stuff out your head,  trouble in you

it’s time

 

ready now, ready now

ready now, to achieve

beyond yourself, only when you believe

get that stuff out your head, trouble in you

it’s time

Right Way Out

you were standing there, all peaceful, kind of mellow

a microsecond of fear, switched you to full on yellow

standing on that ledge, little voice from your growing faith

do the right thing my friend, the pain is when you wait

 

you took the wrong way in, to a twisted situation

cannot take your toys and go home this time

gotta work on your relations

you took the wrong way in, gonna turn this thing around

took the wrong way in, take the right way out

 

penitent heart, warm place to start

Better on the back side, Come clean

 

your face flushed a faint grey tone, ghostly white

learned the meaning of shame, that blessed night

the words strained your lips,  the pain you were giving birth

to a two ton whale, "i am sorry" really worked

 

took the wrong way in, to a twisted situation

cannot take your toys and go home this time

gotta work on your relations

took the wrong way in, gonna turn this thing around

took the wrong way in, take the right way out

It ain't over till it's over, get out now​

The Official Trampoline Song

get out the trampoline​

 

I don’t like to fight, never wanna have one

but when it begin, cannot get away

we hate it when we fight, never turn out good

but when we all done, I like it when she say

 

get out the trampoline

jump on the trampoline

more fun than making money

 

only yesterday, a big little nothing

turn us inside out, we begin to fray

much too late now. hell lacks her fury

we find no words, I’m quiet till she say

 

get out the trampoline

jump on the trampoline

more fun than making money

 

jumping and spinning hair so frizzy

forget about what made us so crazy

getting back to what makes us go

all because I love you so

 

get out the trampoline​

Lanes

no I never gonna go that way

stay in my lane

take your time

take your time

 

woke me up, wanna cruise and

then with did, none for losing

sun fell down, came the night and

we owned it wrong or right

 

morning came true be told

story shed burning lightning

we had known, over again

dreaming wheels might

 

take your time, take your time

no I never gonna go that way

stay in my lane

take your time, take your time

 

when they play on your fear

know that voice of hope

you want to hear

turn your good mind away

use that voice 

you got something to good say

 

no I never gonna go that way

stay in my lane

take your time

take your time

(take the wheel)

 

woke me up, wanna cruise and

then with did, none for losing

sun fell down, came the night and

we owned it wrong or right

 

morning came true be told

story shed burning lightning

we had known, over again

dreaming wheels might

 

take your time, take your time

Are you looking when I go that way

I moving lanes

stay in my lane
