Cemetery Superfly

Cemetery Superfly

BandRockAlternative

Classic rock meets alternative metal with a twist of 60's British Invasion thrown in the mix.

Biography

The band started in 1999 making experimental "noise." Gradually the noise started to sound more like music and a drummer was added to the mix. Now, over ten years later, this band is still creating the most original music you will ever hear these days and it keeps getting better yet still remains true to the spontaneous originality of their former selves. With the addition of ex-Condition Blue guitarist Brendan Flaherty, drummer/vocalist Andy Gulinello and their new drummer Evan Gianoulis, Cemetery Superfly is sounding better than ever these days and their full length album titled "No Commercial Potential" was placed on the ballot for the 2010 Grammy Awards in four categories! The first single from the album (a catchy, hard-edged rocker titled “Medicine Man") has already been chosen to be on a major motion picture soundtrack and has been published by U.K. based label "Urban Angel Music" and has been released worldwide on a compilation called "Rock City" available in stores nationwide and for download on iTunes and Napster!
Continuing on their journey of creating melodic, experimental, hard rock, Cemetery Superfly has recorded what critics are saying is their best material to date with their latest release titled “Ghost In The Radio”. This 6-song EP delivers blow after blow of edgy, blistering, supersonic rock and is on the way to becoming one of the best albums released this year!

Lyrics

Medicine Man

Written By: Ross Jackson

To be recognized - I’m the one, the one who - will sell you lies
bridge the gap - Between this world
And the next

He will control your mind - He will turn back time
Wherever you are
Wherever you go

And if you wannna know
Which way the wind blows
Just call the man - Sounds like a plan

Pay him with blood - He’ll give you Anything to make you feel good
You’re on your way - To losing yourself
It will be done

I’m not the one, not the one - Who can see the chosen one
I never knew life - Could be so fun

And if you wannna know
Which way the wind blows
Just call the man - don’t call his bluff

Pay him with blood - He’ll give you
Anything you want
You’re on your way - To losing yourself

When I was young
Life - Was already fun

Now I care - When I hit the wall
And people stare

I’m not the one, not the one - Who can see the chosen one
I never knew life – Could be so fun

Death On The Highway

Written By: Ross Jackson/Scott Anderson

I said it was time - And now you are done
Blinded my eyes – Block out the sun
He will return someday
Death on the run

Under my wheels – River of red
Ghost in the sun – Valley of blood
Take back the ride my way
Death on the run
And it takes some time – to let the body die

Death on the highway
Six hundred miles
Death on the highway

Flowers will grow – Where he once stood
Thought he was dead - What did I see
Somebody cold as ice
Put a hand on me

Under the moon – Is where he would
Take back the soul – The reaper stole
Highway of souls descending
That’s where I’ll go
And it takes some time – so let the rivers rise

Death on the highway
Six hundred miles
Death on the highway

Mad Woman

Written By: Scott Anderson/Ross Jackson

Your ties
You know they reach around the world
Telling many stories that are lies that you told
Since you were just a girl
Your eyes
Like a bullet and a knife
Cut you down like that choice that you made
When you would rather die

Mad woman it's the love why you hate all the time - you are mine
Don't stop keep a movin’ don't turn around - you are blind

I thought
You could be handled all alone
I'd find it easy to be tough in the dark
Where you buried all those bones

Mad woman it's the love why you hate all the time you are mine
Don't stop keep a movin’ don't turn around you are blind

One way or another – I’ll find out
Bury me six feet under – the ground
Better be hiding – don’t fall down

I'm wrong
You must have really gone insane
On a different plane in this world that will never go your way

Mad woman it's the love why you hate all the time - you are mine
Don't stop keep a movin’ don't turn around - you are blind

One way or another – I’ll find out
Bury me six feet under – the ground
Better be hiding – don’t fall down

Your lies
You know they spread around the world

Mad woman it's the love why you hate all the time - you are mine
Don't stop keep a movin’ don't turn around - you are blind

Who are you
Fooled you
Bury me six feet under – the ground
Better be hiding – don’t fall down now

The Rounds

Written By: Andy Gulinello

I’m part to blame I find it easier than others
Once thought to be hard
It’s a piece of cake
Right now I’m trying to compete
It’s looking like quite the feat
As you carry on without losing place

I’ll lay it all down I’ll throw my cards down on the table
My closet bones need to be arranged
Never caused you shame
You think it’s wrong that I feel better
A little bit more than more than able
Could you spare some change

I’ve been wandering ‘round
Wondering what to do
I can’t sleep when I’m down
Toss and turns consume me

I’m so complacent yet I’m trying to lose
Trying to lose my way home
I’m so complacent yet I’m trying to lose
Trying to lose my way home

Fireflys

Written By: Andy Gulinello

Your advice this evening, a role of the dice revealing
The odds aren’t quite in my
Favor though I’m counting on
Fireflys to lead you
Down a path that winds and seeks to narrow but stays bright
Shining on these crooked souls

Close but not for comfort
Why were you the last to know
Crushing heads like thunder
Why was I the last to go

To my glass house a painful mess like hammers to my shins
And my glass heart is painted red
And stitched upon my sleeve
But I can’t stop to save my fraying ends

Ill advised it’s seeming
A role of the dice deceiving
but my odds have just
Climbed on the path with crooked souls

Close but not for comfort
Why were you the last to know
Crushing heads like thunder
Why was I the last to go

To my glass house a painful mess like hammers to my shins
And my glass heart is painted red
And stitched upon my sleeve
But I can’t stop to save my fraying ends

World Without End

Written By: Ross Jackson/Andy Gulinello

Take a shortcut round the bend, Down a road that never ends
Deliver me from one - who never dies
Break the curse, that will not mend
This place we will defend

Send them back
To gaze upon a star
Tell me who you are

Peace from the shield of dawn, Break the spell they have learned so well
Dynasty of madness - tears this world apart
We won the battle
But not the war

Send them back
To gaze upon a star
Tell me who you are

Watching wheels that reflect on my design
Please don’t let it be my fault
If it’s what you want – Then it’s what you’ll receive
Your waiting for the world to cast a shadow and fall

We always find a way, To fight another day
And win the war
Find the path to my sweet freedom

Send them back
To gaze upon a star
Tell me who you are

(Repeat Chorus)
