Biography

"Jive White Boy has branded himself as a unique, credible songwriter. Knives That Stab Your Face is a record that flies by, in a good way. Back to back to back, these songs compliment and build off each other, brandishing some lucid licks with an underbelly of deep hurt. Songs like the titular opener, and the somber, beautiful “Slowly” possess the kind of maturity and depth of a seasoned veteran." - Matthew Cohen of "Delusions of Adequacy"

Lyrics

Knives that stab your face

Written By: Jivewhiteboy

Since I was 18 I lived in fear,
Of the ones who'd judge my life so dear,
And another thing.

What gives you the right to say I'm wrong,
That my life isn't worth the coin you own,
And another thing.

Do you know why I can't speak a word,
Cause the truth it burns,
Bridges down like wood,
Knives that stab your face.

Bet you'd love to see my conscience gone,
But it's right here beside me all along,
Ha ha ha, you think I'm stupid.

Sun comes up, goes down, sun takes your life,
Another coin won't save you from this fight,
And another thing.

So what I'm poor and my pants are ripped at the seem,
But I'm strong and standing on my feet,
And another thing.

Do you know why I can't speak a word,
Cause the truth it burns,
Bridges down like wood,
Knives that stab your face.

One wrong turn and then you'll pay with your life,
Bet you'd love to see us slip on your ice,
Ha ha ha, your slave forever.

Do you know why I can't speak a word,
Cause the truth it burns,
Bridges down like wood,
Knives that stab your face.

Lost Sensation

Written By: Brian Senesac

Listen,
Listen to the words that you speak,
To your ideas, your beliefs and aspirations,
Its a lifetime dedication to yourself.
Beliefs and aspirations, it's a lifetime celebration,
But you just can't stop thinking of yourself.

Listen,
Listen to the words that they pray,
Every fucking day
For their children's education or how the war's going to affect your wealth.
When the world's a conglomeration of many impoverished nations,
But you just can't stop thinking of yourself.

When you feel like the whole entire nation has dreams and aspirations to crush your souls elations to the ground.

When your mom's the only one who gives damnation whether or not your making a life that's worth creation,
But you just can't stop thinking of yourself.

I can,
I can only speak for myself,
Please if you can let's have a conversation of that which now relates between ourselves,
A subtle confirmation of our ties and our relations,
But we just can't stop from thinking of yourself.

When you feel like another lost sensation,
A personal commemoration,
A total masterbation of yourself.

When you feel like the worlds justification,
Accrued from large equations and grandiose summations and it just so happens to result in yourself.

And I don't mind baby I don't mind if your feeling strange.
I don't mind baby I don't mind if your feeling strange,
And if your feeling strange,
Lord knows I'm feeling strange.
