Killer Crocs of Uganda

BandRock

Killer Crocs of Uganda's music is as diverse as their influences. One KCoU song may be clearly punk, followed by a radio-friendly anthem, and closing with a grinding hard rock banger. KCoU doesn't force you to choose between crunchy and creamy.

Biography

Killer Crocs of Uganda enjoy referring to themselves in the 3rd person. Their music starts with the hard rock foundations of bands like Foo Fighters and Soundgarden, adds soaring textures and melodies ala Smashing Pumpkins, and finishes with due deference paid to the rock & punk gods of the 70s and 80s.

Brian and Lance hail from Clear Lake, in the shadow of the Johnson Space Center. High school buddies, they experimented in various bands until college and life happened. Nearly 20 years later, inspired by Halloween beer and tech career drudgery, they refound the passions that drew them to the Live Music Capital of the World. ..

Greg Brooke joined the band in 2009 bringing his own meaty style of bass, coming from glam-metal roots, and arena rock experience.

Killer Crocs of Uganda released their first album, Almost Lost Tomorrow, in 2008. They're working on a second album due out in early 2010.

Lyrics

Red in My Eye

Written By: Killer Crocs of Uganda

Red In My Eye

By Killer Crocs of Uganda

2009

Verse 1

You’re here today

Relaxing cold on a couch with a picture frame

It takes away

You reel it in on line but it doesn’t stay

Bridge (G)

The metronome

Keeps a time that’s meaningless to me

Chorus

Don’t go away

I can’t do without you today

I listened to what you had to say

And I still love you

Verse 2

You wash the stain

Smells like bleach but it can’t be clean again

Nice and vain

Diamond glass, slam the door, break the picture frame

Bridge (G)

The metronome

Keeps a time that’s meaningless to me

Chorus

Don’t go away

I can’t do without you today

I listened to what you had to say

And I still love you

Don’t go away

Can’t you face the red in my eye?

If you can’t stay, then I can’t watch you

But I still love you

You Can't Bring Me Down

You Can't Bring Me Down

Ten years ago
On my way to Houston
I paid up as you walked out the door
I drove on
Found my way to losing
Now it doesn't matter anymore

CHORUS
You did it all
You made it happen
You watched it burn right to the ground
You did it all
You made it happen
But you can't bring me down

Years wore on
And sometimes I was tempted
To take my guns and wine and walk away
But a man's gotta do
What a man's gotta do
And now you've got to listen to me say

CHORUS

Mirage

Mirage

Copyright 2006

I want to match your style
I want to stay for a while
I want to hear your smile
so dearly

I want to fall to your spell
I want to sleep in your cell
I want to dance into hell
so sweetly

Yeah

I cannot match your style
I cannot stay for a while
I cannot hear your smile
so clearly

I cannot fall to your spell
I cannot sleep in your cell
I cannot dance into hell
so neatly

No

I almost lost tomorrow
I almost lost today
