about

After knowing each other for many years in the Atlanta music scene, friends Todd Caras (Feeding Fingers) and Patrick A. (The Love Drunks/Can!!Can) finally put a band together around a mutual love of dark rock bands from the 70's and 80's. The duo recruited Bryan Paul Baker through an ad in Creative Loafing.

Track Name: Something's Got To Break
Somethings go to break my bones
somethings got to break...
Track Name: Velvet
Well it came about
That men began to multiply on the face of the Earth
and daughters were born of them
And they took them as brides, as brides on the face of the Earth

And waters above
Will come to down waters below
Water in the sky
And baby, we're gonna die

But there's a guy
A righteous man in his own time
You are righteous
Yeah you are righteous
And baby, I'm righteous too!

And baby, I'm righteous too!
Track Name: Dirt Road Ahead
Seems we're playing shirts and skins again
And all the blood won't atone for our sins
Looks like you're giving, getting head again
A friend
What a bend
In the dirt road ahead

In the dirt road ahead

You've got a nerve to show your face in here
A loud mouth and a taste for the girls
Looks like your turning their heads again
A friend
On the bend
The dirt road ahead

The dirt road ahead

Since you lost all your self control
The pretty girls wanna put on their show
Dollar bills and an arm full of smack
What a crack
In the back
Give me a heart attack

The dirt road ahead

Torn dress and a torn up face
Neon lights take you in embrace
Red devils lined in your hand
What a man
In the clan
Back of the van

The dirt road ahead

Now you're layin in the streets my friend
And all the people they're a kicking your shit
Fifty cents for a call to your pimp
What a bitch
Flip the switch
The dirt road ahead

The dirt road ahead
Track Name: Song For Atlanta
Living your life
With a throat and a knife
A slip slip slip
And a double down drip
Life is a blood sport
When you live in the A
Feet melt on boulevard
Your time is a drain

Baby…
Where did our love go?
Why did we grow old?
Why did we grow old?

Seventy people
On Glenwood Ave
I see Alex Weiss
At the Echo Lounge
He's got a show for you
And it's a real time

Baby…
Where did our love go?
Baby…
Why did we grow old?

Bobby Ubange
Hippin' it with Black Lips
I see Carbonas
and Beat Beat Beat
Something tells me
That love never ends

Baby…
Where did our love go?
Baby…
Why did we grow old?
Track Name: All She Wrote, Goin' For A Stroll
Sex in the store
Video porn
Mamma's got a big mouth
Gone too far

You've got the huns
Women and guns
Three tattoos
And naked news

Abortion rights
Stars and stripes
Adult friend finders
Serial numbers

I've got a game crack
Six day, six pack
Send in a pic
Click, click, click

Vietnam war
I am the poor
Close the door
I can't stand it anymore

Suicide skies
fight or flight
Livin' on the day dream
Papa's gonna breed me

Sex in the store
Video porn
Mamma's got a big load
Married, white man knows

Hanky code
Forbidden zone
Make it rough
Fingercuffs

Riding the raw
Right or wrong
Slide in the booth
Wife and the groom

Smoking meth
Give a fuck
Broken tooth
The bloody glove

Teenage dreams
Are fifties scenes
Out of pocket
It's a meat market

Sex in the store
Video porn
Mamma's got a big mouth
Gone too far

You've got the huns
Women and guns
Three tattoos
And naked news

Abortion rights
Stars and stripes
Adult friend finders
Serial numbers

I've got a game crack
Six day, six pack
Send in a pic
Click, click, click

And that's all she wrote
Goin' for a stroll
Track Name: We Had Nothing
Once upon a time
I was an uncommon man
Living by a street sign
It said quarter horse drive

And the people in my neighborhood were fearful
That blacks would come and they would take us as victims
You made sure to lock your doors
'Cuz the crack baby Jesus was just an inch away

We had nothing
we lived as kings in a gilded zoo


And we lived in a shelter
We feared people from the grave yard
We had a golden ghetto

There were blue hairs
I wanted blue hair
They called me a weirdo
I called them a norm-y

It was 2001
And you were a cutter
We spent our time thinking
I'd write a movie

We had nothing
we lived as kings in a guilded zoo

They called you Christy
And called me Sissy
I'll never miss those days of old
Track Name: After The Fire
After the fire
Comes a whisper
It comes like a feeling
It comes like believing

It's not in the mountains
It's not in the earthquakes
My heart is exploding
I know I'm becoming
Track Name: That's What I'm Screaming 'Til The End Of The World
Well wine is fine
But liquor is quicker
I’ve got a nervous twitch
I’m down in a ditch

Well we’re all fucked up
But the future looks brighter
I’m feeling inspired
And I’m living in a pig pen

You're thinking daydreams
I'm thinking nightmares
Everything's believing
There's no achieving

It’s all a sham
Be true to the Big Man
This is the master plan
You are a destroyer

And I said goodbye
Pulled plugs and I die
I’m gonna be literally speaking
No more time to make the meaning
That’s what I’m screaming
’til the end of the world
Track Name: We Are Bodies With People
We are in a constant state of becoming.
Our bodies constantly regenerating
Meaning that physically speaking
you are not the person you were
You as the body with a conscience
You not the same as you once were

The only part of you that isn't replaced
By ebb and flow of time
Is a little jitter box concept called
The Cerebrial Cortex


We aren't people with bodies
We are bodies with people
Track Name: Cockamamie
Men, listen to your mothers
And preach to your daughters
Daughters, listen to your fathers
And preach to your brothers

Brothers, listen to your mothers
And sing to your lovers
Sisters, listen to your fathers
'Cuz they be like your mothers
Track Name: Winter Comes Creeping In
Winter comes creeping in at first
No one notices until it bursts
It's not human nature to expect the worst
so when it finally hits, it hurts
And no matter how bad things may go
I can always count on you - to say you told me so
to ask me if I've had enough
and "Wouldn't it be better if I just gave up?"
