Dirt Poor Robins will take you on a journey through love, pain, loneliness, and beauty. Accompanying their bold lyrics are music arrangements that merge from hard rock, to classical strings, to sympathetic ballads.

Biography

“Our album 'The Cage' is a concept piece that revolves around a carnival sideshow,” Kate Robins says, “but the people in it aren’t freaks of nature. They’re normal people like you and me, but what’s being exploited is their defense mechanisms against pain and loneliness.”

“We want our music to hit people the same way any song does when they turn on the radio, where they like the beat, they like the melody, it’s catchy, it’s memorable, but at the same time, we want them to get the sense that we’re drawing from a deeper well,” Neil Robins says. “That we’re pulling from musical backgrounds the average band doesn’t pull from. That we’re writing from concepts people maybe haven’t put into words but have felt all along. I’m really excited about the way the album has turned out, because I think we’ve gone to a place that’s musically different, yet at the same time we find the music resonating with all types of people. As an artist, there’s not much that makes me happier than that.”

Lyrics

Someone (I Dare You To Love Me)

Written By: Dirt Poor Robins


I dare you to love me
After all that I’ve done
I dare you to see past all the things
That I have become
I dare you to wash it all away
And forget where I’ve come from
Cause maybe I could be someone

Across the room watching you
I do an impression of someone who
Is unafraid resolute
Someone deserving of your pursuit
As I traveled the road became unraveled
Now I need to start this over

I dare you to love me
After all that I’ve done
I dare you to see past all the things
That I have become
I dare you to wash it all away
And forget where I’ve come from
Cause maybe I could be

Someone who won’t cave under
Someone who can sing with the thunder
Someone who will leave their mark
On this world turned dark
I would shed your light
If I only had your love
Your life

Naked before you
Exposed in each scar a biography
With you I’ve a new life
I’ll put on the new dress you bought for me

As I traveled the road became unraveled
Now I need to start this over

I dare you to love me
I dare you to love me

I dare you to love me
After all that I’ve done
I dare you to see past all the things
That I have become
I dare you to wash it all away
And forget where I’ve come from
Cause maybe I could be someone
Maybe I could be someone

Eleanor Rigby

Written By: The Beatles


Eleanor Rigby
Picks up the rice in the church
Where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window
Wearing a face
That she keeps in a jar
By the door
Who is it for
All the lonely people, where do they all come from
All the lonely people, where do they all belong

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Father McKenzie
Writing the words
To a sermon that
No one will hear
No one comes near
Look at him working
Darning his socks
In the night when
There’s nobody there
What does he care
All the lonely people, where do they all come from
All the lonely people, where do they all belong

Ah look at all the lonely people
Ah look at all the lonely people
Ah look at all the lonely
Ah look at all the lonely
Ah look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby
Died in a church
And was buried along
With her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt
From his hands as he
Walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people, where do they all come from
All the lonely people, where do they all belong

Great Vacation

Written By: Neil Robins


Wake, you sleepers
It’s time to get dressed
Somebody’s coming so you better look your best

Cause out in the garden
There’s some things you hid away
But the grass has withered
And the flowers begun to fade

And there’s nowhere left to hide it
And someone’s sure to find it

All the world (all of the)
All the world (all of the)
All the world (soon will be)
Soon will be gone (soon will be)
All of the world, all of the world
All of the world soon will be gone

Dear Mr. Thoughtless
There’s some things you shouldn’t say
(things you shouldn’t say)
For the judge can hear you and it soon will be the day
(soon will be the day)
He’ll bring the words you’ve spoke and lay them at your feet
(lay them at your feet)
Syllables and decibels, he didn’t miss a beat
And we’ll see what you can do to try buy and lie your way out of this one pal
Cause the world is gonna be gone
Gone

All the world (all of the)
All the world (all of the)
All the world (soon will be)
Soon will be gone (soon will be)
All of the world, all of the world
All of the world soon will be gone

We all are guilty of importance
Playing like it’s ours
A borrowed body and a Porsche
Stealing glory from afar
But we want it
We need attention here
Or else we’re just like everybody else
Is that wrong

Romans and countrymen
Please lend me your ears
There’s some late breaking news
I know you’d like to hear

But the papers won’t print it
And the TVs just won’t air
Nobody gets the word cause there’s nobody there
(there’s no one)
As the scales were set and the measurements taken
All the sheep left for a great vacation

All the world
All the world
All the world
Soon will be gone
All of the world, all of the world
All of the world soon will be gone
