APEMANLIZARD

BandAlternativeRock

An altrock electro band from the Northwest, APEMANLIZARD is playing the music they want to hear and they're not afraid to sound good. A good mix of tight rocking guitar riffs and melodic keys blend with hook filled music and poignant lyrics to create catchy songs that stick with you after listening.

Biography

From it's inception APEMANLIZARD has strived to set itself apart from other bands through it's non-genre attitude. "Every time we right a song the only code we're trying to adhere to is, does this sound good... to us." Started as a 3 piece in 2007, and then adding another guitarist in early 2009, APEMANLIZARD front man Jonah Arndt has a saying, "We only write the hits." One listen to APEMANLIZARD's new self-tiltled release and you'd have to agree. They are indeed, highly listenable. One might even say, catchy.
Pay attention to these guys and remember that name, APEMANLIZARD. Mark my words, they're about to blow up.

Lyrics

No One Mentions

Written By: APEMANLIZARD

I live where no one ventures
Safe place for mild tempers
Keep up with common interests
And say what no one mentions

My swollen head is yours
My sunken eyes are sores
Is it too late to change my clothes
I wanna throw down through secret codes

I live where no one ventures
Safe place for mild tempers
Keep up with common interests
And say what no one mentions

My swollen head is yours
My sunken eyes are sores
They say when it rains
When it rains, it stains

Animate Object

Written By: APEMANLIZARD

Don't think you owe me, baby you just showed me
Everything I need to answer all my inquiries (x2)

You've got it, you've got it
My animate object, animate object (x2)

You've got something, I want nothing to do with it
I put it off, I put it all on and you give me shit
There isn't one thing to say to get you out of my way
You just keep on coming
The pieces forced into place
Something simple arranged

You've got it, you've got it
My animate object, animate object (x2)

Upworlder

Written By: APEMANLIZARD

Upworlder you are making into
A softer, sweeter version of you
And I still make you up in my head
Yeah, I still make you up in my head
I still make you up in my head
And I won't even stop when I'm dead

It takes a year
I told you that
Would you split it in half
If you were here
We'd have a screaming match
Then we'd take it all back

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You were the love of my life once
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm gonna find me some nuance

And the tricks
The tricks that you showed me will come
They'll come in handy when the
Trouble I made comes back to claim me
All I ask is don't rearrange me

I'm not the one
Who left you beaten
But I still come around
Even if just to say

Toads

Written By: APEMANLIZARD

Toads, I see the look on your face
From my childhood take
What you need and replace
We got old, and hardly awake
You mentioned all your mistakes
Go ahead and let me know

La la la
We don't feel anybody
We'll take all of your money

Who am I now
Yeah who am I now

Ooh you're putting the juice all in my heroin head
You're gonna please me to death
Ooh yeah stick to my side like glue
I'll never mention you

All we can do to keep cool
Yeah, we're doing everything just like you

La la la
We don't feel anybody
We'll take all of your money

Don't you think we're on to something
We came from nowhere to get nothing

Sombra

Written By: APEMANLIZARD

Sombra you are the only one that showed up
Who like me had a love and it's so hard know that I gotta let you go
Sombra you are the only one that showed up
When I needed love the most
But you're still a ghost

I never wanted any other girls
None of them could move like you do
I never wanted any other girls
They just don't seem as real as you do

Sombra you know there's just so much I owe ya
If I had money I would take you to the coast
But I know you're still a ghost
Sombra I feel so lucky to have known ya
But I gotta say, and I gotta be on my way

I never wanted any other girls
None of them could move like you do
I never wanted any other girls
They just don't seem as real as you do

Sombra, sombra, sombra, sombra

Dress Up

Written By: APEMANLIZARD

Dress up to fuck, can you blame us
This is the luck of the following famous
There's ones with fitted jackets
Tattoos who just use matches
There tough, in blush

Fill me fill me up
Feel free I'm wasted enough

Dress up to fuck, can you blame us
This is the luck of the following famous
Hand jobs in the backs of cabs
Licking dust out of plastic bags
This stuffs, a rush

Fill me fill me up
Feel free I'm wasted enough (x2)

Dress up to fuck, can you blame us
This is the luck of the following famous (x2)

Fill me fill me up
Feel free I'm wasted enough (x4)

Graves

Written By: APEMANLIZARD

You were standing in a line
Everybody else got through
Why are you so surprised
No one can do right by you

Yeah we behave and go about our days
We slave for cheap sweepstakes
But we dig dig graves
yeah we dug all day in a cave
But we dig dig graves
yeah we dug all day in a cave

You were standing in a line
Everybody else got through
Why are you so surprised
No one can do right by you

Yeah we just slave and go about our days
We only want a little keepsake
But we dig dig graves
yeah we dug all day in a cave
But we dig dig graves
yeah we dug all day in a cave

You were standing in a line
Everybody else got through
Why are you so surprised
No one can do right by you
