Biography

my father and i were looking through his telescope one october evening in an open beanfield. being a fancy and expensive telescope, it had among other things a random star locator. it randomly located the star "vega". my father and i both were at awe to its etremely bright/white light, and its reddish center. my dad jokingly called it an "albinovega".

albinovega are a rock trio from cincinnati ohio and nashville tennessee. with influences ranging from radiohead to nirvana, incubus to james taylor, they rock out heavy with just enough emotion and irony to keep things original and interesting.

Lyrics

blowing up lebarons

Written By: john kathman

your mother pushed you out, but your father pushed you down and you helped him out. you lie so easily. you lie right through your teeth. when you smile i want to punch you up again.

i stole all your merits while blowing up lebarons. i know you cant stand it. im blowing up lebarons.

i dont owe you money. i think you owe me more than money buys.

down/out

Written By: john kathman

someone once said life is a battle that no one wins. its sad, especially if i will be a dad. girls are too busy tormenting boys and men. im mad cause i can never make them happy.

wont someone please get me out of here, just for once i want to have no fear.

ultra color blindness, i can taste the silence. ultra violent radiation is a breakthrough in science. i wish i could buy a ticket admitting me to heaven or some equivelant place.

you're lost but not alone, you have your demons here. you will run.

piss poor

Written By: john kathman

i wasted all my time on taxes, penalties, and fines. my eyes are so damn sore i cant read inbetween the lines. im trying to tell you that i think i really messed myself up again, i need help. id feel so much better if i could kick your feet up off your soapbox now. i will kick you to the curb, i will show you how im sorry for that nosebleed. man, i hope you figure it out.

ive wasted all my life on rules and trying to manage time. thanks a lot, now ive got a vacant space inside. you tried to tell me that falling back is a noble act, a bed of nails goes through my back. come back smartass, i will kick your ass again.
