BandRockBlues

We are a gimickless rock n' roll band. We give it to you straight, we pour our souls out to give you something authentic because it's so hard to find anything authentic today.

Biography

3 vagabonds venture into the depths of rock n' roll. With the devil on one shoulder and an angel on another, who do you listen to?

We love rock n' roll and blues. Our songs are from deeply personal experiences. We write our stories in song to give people a part of ourselves, maybe even help others, or at least show them that they are not alone.

Lyrics

Plateau

Written By: Craig Antley

Verse
The hawk came to my dreams
It woke me with a loud scream
I couldn’t go back to sleep
This feeling came over me
Just wouldn’t let me be
Couldn’t go back to sleep

Pre Chorus
So I put on my shoes
Gotta find the truth

Chorus
Where I’m going, I just don’t know
I’m reaching the edge of this plateau
Will I fly or will I plummet?
It’s up to the gods whether I leave this summit

Verse
Hawk where have you gone?
It’s been six days so long
Don’t know what went wrong
Can’t seem to find my way
Twilight’s closing the day
As I begin to lay

Pre-chorus
And then I hear your call
Rushing like a squall

Chorus
Where I’m going, I just don’t know
I’m reaching the edge of this plateau
Will I fly or will I plummet?
It’s up to the gods whether I leave this summit

Peace Of Mind

Written By: Daniel Martin

Mr. Bill collector knocking at your door
Ex old ladies calling wanting more
Glass heart shatters million pieces on the ground
Put on your red nose and find your inner child

Chorus
Looking for a peace of mind, when you gonna find
Looking for a peace of mind, in due time
Cause when you find this peaceful place
You betta hold on tight, don’t let it slip away

Push back that meeting you ain’t gotta catch that train
Stay home with the chitlins and be there super man
Don’t take life for granted cause it’s way to short
Put on your blue suede shoes and dance out that door

Chorus
Don’t let it slip away Don’t let it slip away

Step outside run your toes through the sand
Left of the dealer always gets the first hand
Deal what you got don’t be bitch’in complain
You might not wake up tomorrow to see another day

Chorus - change
Looking for a peace of mind, when you gonna find
Looking for a peace of mind, in due time
Whether it’s the big rock candy mountain or a beach in Normandy
Betta take what you got and treat it sweet as can be

Treat it sweet as can be, treat it sweet as can be
Treat it sweet as can be, treat it sweet as can be
