Biography

Go For Launch is a five-piece music group from New York formed in 2009. After the breakup of a previous band, four remaining members continued their pursuit in music developing songs that tend to transcend genres and break expectations. After the original drummer left, the Go For Launch lineup was solidified. Go For Launch’s musical style cannot be pinned to one style as each song transcends hints of different genres such as rock, jazz, R&B, progressive rock, ska, reggae, and swing. Live shows are the strongpoint for Go For Launch as the energy and groove are delivered to the audience by band members who stand whole heartedly behind the music they’ve written. By show end, audience and band share camaraderie in their exhaustion of dancing and interaction with each other. Go For Launch’s self-titled CD is a seven song EP that demonstrates such a fusion of genres. It is now available on ITunes.

Lyrics

Severed

Written By: Scott Griffin

Saw it all so crystal clear,
convoluted thought, disappeared.
From a key and a locked heart.

All long term goals solidified.
When it broke, I almost died.
From a buckle and a scarf.

When you've been cut off,
it feels like you never mattered at all.
When you've been cut off,
feels like your back's up against a wall.
When you've been cut off.

Gut instinct tells me to fight.
It's always right.
I can't let you go.
Oh no.

When you've been cut off,
it feels like you never mattered at all.
When you've been cut off,
feels like your back's up against a wall.

When you've been cut off,
it feels like you never mattered at all.
When you've been cut off,
feels like your back's up against a wall.

When you've been cut off.

Figure Me Out

Written By: Scott Griffin

Where do I begin?
Out on my own again.
Sifting through it with a fine toothed comb.

The problem seems to be,
just a self fulfilling prophecy.
Guess I'm better off alone.

I couldn't tell ya,
why I feel the way I do.
But there's one thing,
That always rings true.

I know what I've got,
and it's not what you think
that I am. No

How do you ease your mind,
when you know you're just a waste of time,
and that's all you'll ever be?

Just take it nice and slow,
baby let the track record show.
Not to waste your time on me.

I couldn't tell ya,
why I feel the way I do.
But there's one thing,
that always rings true.

I know what I've got,
and it's not what you think
that I am.

So sick and tired of feeling this way,
it's a struggle each and everyday.
Can I get some answers please?

So sick and tired of feeling this way,
it's a struggle each and everyday.
So don't waste your time on me.

I couldn't tell ya,
why I feel the way I do.
But there's one thing,
that always rings true.

I know what I've got,
and it's not what you think
that I am. No.

Be Afraid

Written By: Scott Griffin

Time passes by,
self-destructive years growing.
With all the mistakes I've made,
there was no way of knowing.

No way of knowing.

Panic sets in,
this hopelessness overwhelming.
Can't stop my mind from betraying.
What my heart has been saying,
to me.

Can't let the fear win.
Feels like I'm sinking,
in quicksand.

It's ok.
It's ok to be afraid.
'Cause everybody feels this way,
just trying to get through the
day to day.

Don't get caught up,
don't get swept away.

Fading out,
with no reality guiding me.
Can't go on,
with no soul left inside of me.

I'm slipping away,
finally reaching the breaking point.
I'm caught in the fray,
the outcome surely to disappoint.

Can't let the fear win.
Feels like I'm sinking,
in quicksand.

But it's ok.
It's ok to be afraid.
'Cause everybody feels this way.
Just trying to get through the
day to day.

Don't get caught up,
don't get swept away.

When the walls are closing in,
and the lifelight's getting dim.
Only then can you begin,
to light the fire within.

Just think of all you've done.
Of the battles lost and won.
Grace under the gun.
Stand firm.

It's ok.
It's ok to be afraid.
'Cause everybody feels this way.
Just trying to get through the
day to day.

It's ok.
Said it's ok to be afraid.
'Cause everybody feels this way.
Just trying to get through the
day to day.

Don't get caught up,
don't get swept away.

Don't get caught up,
don't get swept away.

Don't Make The Man

Written By: Scott Griffin

Forcefed, intrinsic science fiction.
Followed every word that they said,
no questions, no convictions.

You can count me out,
and cancel my subscription.
Yeah

This may be hard to understand,
but the faith don't make the man.
I think it's safe to say,
life's too short, live it your own way.

Soft perceptions, of the minds of children,
soak up all your suggestions.
Post hypnotic living.
Let them find their own,
with intelligent tools you give them.
Yeah.

This may be hard to understand,
but the faith don't make the man.
I think it's safe to say,
life's too short live it your own way.

This may be hard to understand,
but the faith don't make the man.
I think it's safe to say,
life's too short, so live it your own way.
