All year long Philadelphia's biggest rock station, 93.3 FM WMMR, has been heavily playing and promoting the band. Their song Cowgirl was featured by the station as the lead off track to their Local Shots II compilation and prominently featured in all of the station's advertisements over two quarters.

"At a live show, these guys are energized and don't take breathers.
Their music speaks for itself, and because of that, they don't take
their sweet time tuning or talking to the audience. They do what they
went there for-to get down! Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls,
Welcome to One of the Greatest Shows on Earth! " - Heather Sconza,
Traxx.com

"Right from the get go, your feet start tapping. Throughout their CD
the guitars, bass, drums, keys and vocals all compliment each other
very well. There is a groove about this CD that makes it easy to listen
to all the way through. You hear the elements of funk, jazz and rock.

Lyrics

Cowgirl

Written By: Fat City Reprise

Cowgirl

So you're goin' away
to hide from all the people that just want to know your name.
How could you?
I seen you headin' for home
well that's not where all the good little cowgirls roam.
I miss you.

How could you say there's nothing here for you?
How could you say you love me too?
Do you even know if you will still love me then?
How could I know? Please tell me when.

I'm sorry but I've got to know
do you really love me baby? Hurry girl we've got to go.
It seems as if you're doin' well
as if your only wish was to escape from your pearl shell
Oh well.

How could you say there's nothing here for you?
How could you say you love me too?
Do you even know if you will still love me then?
How could I know? Please tell me when.

You kidnapped your face, Cowgirl.
Put it in a new place, Cowgirl.
I'll miss you just in case, my Cowgirl.
And I'll never wash off your taste.

Ride on.

You kidnapped your face, Cowgirl.
Put it in a new place, Cowgirl.
I'll miss you just in case.

Waste

Written By: Fat City Reprise


Forgotten nights is where I keep my peace.
Sudated memories that start to leak and roll right down my cheek.
Look at my reflection through the looking glass
to avoid any reserection.

Should I stay? And limp away from all the decisions being made today.
If I die, would you cry and want to turn to me and say
"If you were here, I could be myself again without the pain
of being real and forced to feel all of the times I waste again."

I know you and I know that you don't want me to know
what you need to make every seed in your water color garden grow.
All the things you say today, they dont mean nothing if you're walking away.
You think it's real cool, to take a piece of me and hold it to the stars 'till light shines through.

Should I stay? And limp away from all the decisions being made today.
If I die, would you cry and want to turn to me and say
"If you were here, I could be myself again without the pain
of being real and forced to feel all of the times I waste again."

If I die, was it a waste for you?
Would you cry?
Is it a waste for me to love you now?

Take Me Dancing'

Written By: Fat City Reprise

Every time I take her out
it's safe to say that something goes wrong.
The only thing that matters
is dancing to her favorite song.

Well I know I'm gonna love her
but I just gotta let her in.
She said "show me this town baby, take me dancin'
you'll never be lonely again if you take me dancin'."

She's the kinda girl that likes to
wear her lipstick late at night.
'Cause even in her dreams, yeah,
you know she's got to look alright.

When the music's over
then we'll let the sins begin.
She said "show me this town baby, take me dancin'
you'll never be lonely again if you take me dancin'."

Every time I see this girl
I wanna make her backbone bend.
She'll never get attached
cause music is her only friend.

Break me, shake me hunny, just don't fall asleep.
She said "show me this town baby, take me dancin'
you'll never be lonely again if you take me dancin'."

People Like You

Written By: Fat City Reprise

You thought I would let it slide.
Maybe I would if you were on my side.
Those lies you told, well they will eat at you, eat at you.
I don't need, I don't need,
people like you in the things that I do.

You hold me back from everything
that I like to do, like to do.
You made a cosey spot for you
I trusted you, trusted you.

I know why you had to lie.
You feel in love and then you had to hide.
Those things you lost well they will bleed right through, bleed right through.
I won't bleed, I don't need,
people like you in the things that I do.

You hold me back from everything
that I like to do, like to do.
You made a cosey spot for you
I trusted you, trusted you.

Oh your life is peaceful now.
I will move on but you still won't know how.
Now that you're gone don't you come back again, back again.
I don't need, I don't need,
people like you in the things that I do.
I've got nothin' to prove, are you through?

You hold me back from everything
that I like to do, like to do.
You made a cosey spot for you
I trusted you, trusted you.

I trusted you, I trusted you, trusted you.
I trusted you, I trusted you, trusted you.

You're Fired

Written By: Fat City Reprise

Pour your life into a cup.
Take what's left, it's best to drink it up.
A greedy man, he says "Hello Sir."
You are cold with no reply.

I play king, and I resareckt.
Just to say something you wouldn't expect.

Let's talk about trust, you Judas.
Let's talk about lust, you liar.
Let's talk about everything you thought I'd never know.
Let's talk about faith, I'm psycic.
Let's talk about fake, you're plastic.
Let's talk about everything I know you'll never know.

You sit and sware that I'm crazy.
It's not my fault that your brain is to lazy.
Sittin' on a mushroom, confused by the jokes.
Watchin' stories bein' blown in smoke.

I play king, and I resareckt.
Just to say something you wouldn't expect.

Let's talk about trust, you Judas.
Let's talk about lust, you liar.
Let's talk about everything you thought I'd never know.
Let's talk about faith, I'm psycic.
Let's talk about fake, you're plastic.
Let's talk about everything I know you'll never know.

Let's talk about trust, you Judas.
Let's talk about lust, you liar.
Let's talk about everything you thought I'd never know.
Let's talk about faith, I'm psycic.
Let's talk about fake, you're plastic.
Let's talk about everything, everything, everything.

Long Gone

Written By: Fat City Reprise

Think twice I think not "and don't think you'll see me
again" I said slowly, quickly she turned away.
How quickly she turned away.
Now I'm runnin' with scissors but only to cut loose
the ropes that tie me down, I'm loosin' ground again.
Well I guess that's how it goes,
when the girl she...

Thought she was right, she was so wrong
now that her life is long gone.

Tied off and twisted the beauty queen dope fiend
she's found her old friend, found her old friend again.
A long lost love.
A life time of madness and hardship takes beautiful skin,
tints it a shade of grey.
A long hard love.

Ceilings and magazines, bathtubs and movie sceness
top of the world, the sky's about to fall.
And to think, you had it all.
Trip and fall down, the steel went to deep,
now she's falling asleep,
it's the end.
Killed by a friend.

Thought she was right, she was so wrong
now that her life is long gone.
Thought she was right, she was so wrong
now that her life is long gone.
