Eat Your Birthday Cake doesn’t sing songs about pretty girls, broken hearts or hating their parents. A healthy dose of humor, irony, and honesty pervade their infectious melodies, many of which can be heard on their inaugural release, "I Know You Can".

Biography

Eat Your Birthday Cake doesn’t sing songs about pretty girls, broken hearts or hating their parents. Created as a reaction to what songwriters Bill Storck and Marc Neibauer thought was a precedence of style over substance in rock music, Eat Your Birthday Cake “indie rock� about youth, summers, friends and a fear of the suburbs. Inspired by an infatuation with the music of Jens Lekman, Brian Eno, and Lou Reed to name a few, Bill and Marc began collaborating in early 2008 and their sound continues to evolve. A healthy dose of humor, irony, and honesty pervade their infectious melodies, many of which can be heard on their inaugural release, "I Know You Can".

Lyrics

Vegan Leather

Written By: Neibauer, Storck

She’s a beauty, an artist, a poet
Photos, fashion, name it, she knows it
From a small town, Nowhere, New Jersey
Met her few times, never even heard me

Makes an entrance, hard not to notice
Think she’s glowing, came here to show us
Daddy’s famous, some kind of painter
Yeah I heard the first time you came here

Meat is murder, a vegan with passion
Leather boots and perfume, her fashion
Save the whales and maybe the walrus
Global warming, Al Gore will solve this

A new craze comes with the season
Cocaine, don’t need a reason
The first time was the last time she’s had it
So sad, talks like an addict

Makes an entrance, hard not to notice
Think she’s glowing, came here to show us
Daddy’s famous, some kind of painter
Yeah I heard the first time you came here

Meat is murder, a vegan with passion
Leather boots and perfume, her fashion
Save the whales and maybe the walrus
Global warming, Al Gore will solve this

Meat is murder, a vegan with passion
Leather boots and perfume, her fashion
Save the whales and maybe the walrus
Global warming, Al Gore will solve this

The Sound

Written By: Storck

The biting chill next to the windowsill
It’s getting hot in here; I long for the winter air
White, white snow covering the streets down below
Wind, it howls. This is the sound. The sound.

Crazy Eve, you’re such a bitch. Just leave.
Or get a grip and see, we weren’t meant to be
White, white sheets covering Tracy and me
Hearts, they pound. This is the sound. The sound

Tiny loft. Velvet’s not quite as soft
As these kids who squander time and ponder amphetamines
Light and heat. Burning to be heirs to Lou Reed
With heads in clouds you can’t hear the sound. The sound

Your parachute is busted now and no one’s here to hear you scream
You’re weak and all you’ve left to trust are heartbeats on a broken sleeve
Listen for the sparrow, hang on for the Dawn
Hang on for the Bright Leader to clear the way back to where you belong

Lightweight Stars

Written By: Storck

Stealing down a brand new street
All emerald lights, and chemistry
Fancy cars, and neon signs
Electric hearts all intertwined

We listen to our favorite twins
The pearly dewdrops on our skin
We’re feeling like lightweights
Nocturnal air inebriates

So have yourselves a seat beneath the Christmas tree
We’re hanging stars in Heaven, angels in front of me
Hey, keep your friends awake, we’re not going to wait
We’re staying up past midnight, to eat your birthday cake

There’s a Christmas tree, and there’s birthday cake
Such a perfect ending, to such a perfect day

Celestial stereos
Paper-thin walls and echoes

Peter Pan

Written By: Storck

The powers of your heart,
Of your pain,
Of your hands
Now, fly like Peter Pan
I know you can
