BandRockAcoustic

Original mix of rock, grunge, folk and country. Think Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Janis Joplin, Neil Young, and Alanis Morissette rolled into one big blaze. Singer, Meg, is a beautiful, tragic, hopeful and broken eighteen year old with a soul as old as the heavens and a voice that proves it.

Biography

We were 2. And we were lost. lost2gether.
But we were cold. So we set a little music on fire
at three performances at the 2007 SXSW Music Festival and the 2006 Songwriters Series in Austin. But, when we still felt a little chilly, we decided to invite five friends to fan the flame. That fire burned the whole town down at our album release party at the University of Houston. With that, we raised $1,500 to benefit The Peace of Mind Foundation, a Houston based obsessive compulsive disorder foundation.
Now, we’re looking to light you up, too. You better have a fire extinguisher on hand, because our original mix of rock, grunge, folk and country is white hot. Think Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Janis Joplin, Neil Young, and Alanis Morissette rolled into one big blaze just looking for the next place to heat up. The band lives in the Houston area and catches fire on a regular basis. Up next, is a fall Music For Minds tour benefiting Houston based mental health organizations.

Danny and Meggie, the original 2, also continue to play together as a duo. Their music is a collision of two molten, swirling, and hurtling worlds. Meg is this beautiful, tragic, yearning, hopeful and broken eighteen year old with a soul as old as the heavens and a voice that proves it. Her music is so beautiful it is unknowable. Danny is older in his sorrow, roots and joy, leaving him a little unsteady when he dances on the tip of a pen. Consequently, he trips on things in his path - guitars, mimes, Neruda and Rimbaud - whatever’s lying around. His music is unimaginable. These two worlds are now one and the music from this new world will astound you. Physics says so.

Lyrics

Gimme

Written By: Danny Painter & Meggie Wiggins


Gimme my button back
How’m I sposed to rock my socks off
Gimme my tires back
How’m I sposed to hit ‘n’ run

CHORUS: Hey back off cause I ain’t goin back
Yeah we’re back off cause I ain’t goin back

Gimme my onions back
How’m I sposed to give ya a ring
Gimme my turtle back
Ya know I’m feelin’ shell shocked

CHORUS: Hey back off cause I ain’t goin back
Yeah we’re back off cause I ain’t goin back
Yeah

You can’t have me
You can’t tell me
And you can’t help …

Gimme my bonnet back
How’m I gonna go to prom
Gimme my cake back
How’m I ever fit in this dress

CHORUS: Hey back off cause I ain’t goin back
Yeah we’re back off cause I ain’t goin back
Back off, back off, back off

The Story

Written By: Danny Painter & Meggie Wiggins

Clocks tick hours
Lips suck lemon sours
In the rain that falls on me like a toothache

Shoes wear tassels
Hearts build sandcastles
In the rain that follows me like a faithful dog
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
No, no, no?

Don’t know say next
Love fills me with your cosmic hex
Hey, yeah yeah it’s the story of love
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Just a story we made up

Thrilled alley trashcans
You can’t rrrrowww like cats can
But I’m here, but I’m here with you tonight
But I’m here with you tonight
But I’m here with you tonight
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
No, No, No

2000 Windows

Written By: Danny Painter and Meggie Wiggins

2000 WINDOWS

Windows open and windows close
Windows open and everybody knows
The wind sweeps canyon walls howls down a canyon wall
And through a dead dogs eye

CHORUS
Every wind blows on and on and on
Every wind blows on and on and on
On and on
On and On

Rainy night in Georgia mud runs crimson red
Rainy night in Texas fills my purple head
The world swings wide and curls up in my bed

No, o one is all and all and all
No one is all and all and all
All alone
All alone
All alone
All alone

Windows open and thy will be done
Windows close forgive us everyone
Valleys to be walked to bring me home

Oh,everyone moves on and on and on
Everyone moves on and on and on
On and on
On and on
On and on
On and on

CHORUS
Because I want to go home
I want to go home
But what is home oh what is home
Tell me what is home

Everybody moves on and on and on
Everybody goes on and on and on
Everybody moves on and on and on

Nanananana
Nanananana

Everybody moves on and on and on
Everybody goes on and on and on
Everybody moves on and on and on

YOU’RE not ALONE
YOUR’E not ALONE
You’re Not alone
