The reason 50,000 people will come to a music show is it deals with the now, the imminent will. You don’t see 50,000 people cheer at a painting and you won’t see someone watch a movie 40 or 50 times like a favorite song. Music saves, it saves those who listen to it and those who perform it!

Biography

Blood, Sweat and Tears.

It’s in anything where there is passion. It’s in every performance. It’s our music!

Without the typical hubbub you usually hear we’re serious musicians. We played with heart mainly on the east coast area which has the best damn fans! We’ve been in the finals of every competition entered and played our favorite clubs including headlining the Trocaderro and the Theater of Living Arts! I couldn’t ask for much more except for the music to pure out and to hear the continued screams of our fans!
Thanks to everyone!

Music is beautiful. Music transcends all boundaries of space, time and being. At its highest point it’s truth and within that truth is only the music.
We choose a more aggressive sound to evolve ourselves and our audience. We would die for each other, we would die for our fans and we live for music.
We are only one band but one band is all it takes.
ROCK IS NOT DEAD!!!

Lyrics

Birth Certificate

Written By: Tim "TV" Vargason

Birth Certificate (Matrimony of Jane and John Doe)
Stupid bitch you won’t admit
your fairy tale is full of shit
Wedding ring, agenda sting
turn it around and what do you get?
Barbie and a Ken doll
Plastic middle finger
(Even)The priest knew the truth
I never said I do!
Chorus:
Space!, Time!
Fuck!, Lie!
You hypocrite you’re full of shit!!!
You idiot you’re full of!!!
I’m not okay(x3)
I’m not!!!
I won’t take it!
I can’t fake it!
I have made it! Or (This)
I have!!!
Why is it so justified!?!
LIE!!!
Fucking around Jane will stray
Turn it around, Jane gets away
What the hell is John to do?
Refrain: You got your wife
You got your kids
You got your family
You got your job
You got your boss
American dream
Chorus:(Repeat)
Run!(x2)
From Life!!!
Run(x2)
Put the gun to my face!!!
Rip up the place, Rip up the motherfucker!!!(x4)
Rip it up!!!
What (te da) fuck is John to do
What (te da) fuck I do to you
Caught Jane cheating,( John says: Fuck you!) (Jane says: Fuck you too!!!)
Refrain:(Repeat)
Chorus:(Repeat)
Run!(x2)
From Life!!!
Run(x2)
Put the gun to my face!!!
Rip up the place, Rip up the motherfucker!!!(x4)
Rip it up!!!

Low and Dead

Written By: Tim "TV" Vargason

Low and Dead
What are you suppose to do
When the father abandoned you
What are you suppose to do
When the father abandoned you
I don’t understand today
Why can’t I just understand and
Turn this boy into a man!
Chorus:
I just want to see what it’s like (I just want to push rewind)
to feel like a human being (and start all over again)
I just want to slit my wrist
and end this shit today!!!
Why can’t I!!!
Feel like a human being!!!
Why can’t I!!!
Take me home!!!
Everything is changing, everything
Spirits are screaming, spirits are
Everything is changing, everything
Spirits are screaming, spirits are
Turn back to the real
Such familiar feel
Wanting, suffering, pain
How can we play this game
where nothing is what it seems!
Chorus:(Repeat)
Refrain:
Trying to find my way
Trying to find my way, Motherfucker
Trying to find my way
Trying to find my way, Motherfucker
Why!
To save me!_______Another Jesus!
To save me!_______Remain faithless!
Refrain:(Repeat)
Why!_______You didn’t die for me!
Why!_______Must rewind the tape!
Chorus:(Repeat)

Leadfoot

Written By: Decadence/TV

Leadfoot
Breath speed freak gonna have it my way
Put the top down cause it’s never too late
I got a itchy finger and the speed’s what I need
You better look out cause I’m coming in your lane

Leadfoot(x4)
Get on (x4)

Get on the road and I’m out on my own
We get fucked up at a Decadence show
This is our life and this is our tribe
Now you all know we will not die!

Fire inside and it needs gasoline
Fire inside and I hear the demon scream
Well we’re heading on a collision course
And your going down
So take off your crucifix and open your mouth!

Chorus: Now that we’re here will never go away! (x3)
We can’t die we’re here to stay!

Leadfoot (x4)
Cover (x4)

Cover your scars with a Rock n’ Roll star
A metal cliché that went too far
Killing your hero another martyr
A group has power of satisfied desire!

Chorus: Now that we’re here will never go away! (x3)
We can’t die we’re here to stay!
Now that we’re here will never go away! (x3)
We can’t die we’re here to stay!

Set List

Shows typically depend on time slots which is usually 45 minutes to an hour. We have plenty of material, all original. We can do covers if asked too but for me that's not the reason I got into music. I respect musicians who can can take a cover and make it their own though.
