Biography

Cut Throat Britva is a four-piece Toronto-based rock and roll group. They incorporate memorable melodies with a wild spirit, basking in elements of good hard rock - from garage to grunge to modern arena. Their music is often described as a royal marriage between Kings of Leon and Queens of the Stone Age accompanied by the hard-hitting rhythms of Nirvana and boundless energy of the Libertines.

In their relatively short time together, Cut Throat Britva have played NXNE, CMW, and a multitude of shows across Southern Ontario, and have shared the stage with The Temper Trap and Young Rival. They have also garnered recognition from Toronto rock radio station, Edge 102.1, playing the studio twice and have been featured in their “On the Edge of the Edge” web series. Their music has been featured in Hi-Hat Records Compliation #4. Their first EP was recorded with producer Tom McKay (Joydrop).

So Long

So Long
Lyrics by: Caleb Timmermans / Music by: Cut Throat Britva

Turn on the lights and walk right in
Desperate eyes searching for sin
Start banging alone in my own dirty basement
Teeth clenching so hard they begin shaking
And I know that it’s not right but neither are you

Neighbors complain about the noises below
I’m screaming your name out my basement window
I’m chewing the stems from the shrooms that I grow
You say were in love you’re my greatest foe
And I know that its insane learned it from you

It’s good to be back again
Been so long since I’ve been on (x3)
Been so long since I’ve been on this cloud

Marshmallow walls melt to the floor
Sinful eye eclipsed by its core
Claiming you won but who’s keeping the score
You say you’re all class but act like a whore
And I know that it’s done now over and through

It’s good to be back again
Been so long since I’ve been on (x3)
Been so long since I’ve been on this cloud

I’m caught in a rage
Ah hell don’t take me off this stage
I’m caught in a rage
Ah hell don’t take me off this stage
Off this stage x 4

Been so long since I’ve been on (x3)
Said it’s been so long since I’ve been on
Been so long since I’ve been on this cloud

Doctor, Doctor

Doctor, Doctor
Lyrics by: Caleb Timmermans / Music by: Cut Throat Britva

Doctor, doctor please give me my pills
Haven’t slept in days and I’m feeling oh so fucking ill
Like a clock that don’t keep the right time
My insides may be broken but people think I’m looking fine

Doctor, doctor can you hear me scream I don’t fit into this machine
Doctor, doctor can you hear me scream I don’t fit into this machine

Wake up in the morning nothing to do
So I plant myself in front of the stupid tube
Television tell me what to wear
Tell me how to live my life I blame you for all of this despair

Doctor, doctor can you hear me scream I don’t fit into this machine
Doctor, doctor can you hear me scream I don’t fit into this machine
No

Doctor, doctor can you hear me scream I don’t fit into this machine
Get lost in drugs like Ketamine
I don’t fit in to this machine

Wanted More

Written By: Caleb Timmermans

She came alone inside her room
I was the bride she was the groom
Now I can't make sense of anything   
She came alone inside her head
if not for me then she'd be dead 
but I won't take credit for everything 
wanted more, I couldn't say
wanted more, no not today 
She asked me would I stay a while
I shook my head and faked a smile
I just  packed my things and walked away 
Like a bad dream where everything goes wrong
When I wake up, you will be strong
But cloth shields tend to fray  
wanted more, I couldn't say
wanted more, no not today
She tried to lock me up inside
I never left her troubled mind
And now she curses my very name
Searching for somewhere to lay the blame
Not today

Violator

Written By: Caleb Timmermans

siphonic lover
heard you were a killer
Something euphoric
a surefire heart distiller
but little by little
I think I need you

my palms grow sweaty
a squint eyed new persona
A wave of nothing
mouth the state of arizona
she'll whittle and whiltte
till you don't know you

You're the reason i came
do you care? i didn't think so
I've had enough of this game
it's time for me to go

She'll ask what do you want from me?
Ill say nothing, She'll so okay
come live your life in endless ecstasy
there'll be no suffering baby

You're my violator(x4)

A day without her
is nothing i can handle
a life in pieces
and shatteered like the mantle
and disatnce oh distance
is now my worst fear

tremble lightly
always and forever
forget about her they say
but i could never
existence oh existence
afraid i won't vear

You're my violator(x2)
keep my distance I try
I run away and i hide
but there's a pain in my side
and your the cure
With you i think i could fly
without you i just may try
Might as well
there's no point i'm sure

She'll ask what do you want from me
I'll say nothing and look away
I can't live my life in endless suffering
blance needs suffering baby
without the bitter there's be no sweet
with my you this land will crumble into sea
and i'll be dry with no place to stand on
wishing i left you baby
