Biography

Magneeto is the sexy guitar driven pop rock band that was created by singer/songwriter Carmen Menza. Brian Hartig, Mark Menza and Drew Phelps add their signature as the rhythm section that becomes Magneeto. Armed with a fistful of original tunes they started weaving their musical energy in the hip college town of Denton, Texas. Carmen fronts the band with an unwavering confidence in her ability to deliver a hook and have you singing with her. They blur the lines between pop rock, indie rock and jazz leanings.

"Magneeto's got pop, undeniably. It's in every juicy hook and lead singer-songwriter Carmen Menza's sweeter-than-sweet voice. Derivative of the Big '80s, with all its poppy synth lines, snazzy beats, and really strong hooks, sung by a girl-II-woman? On paper, yes. In practice, far from it. One of the greatest statements a guy like me can make about a band is that said band has a unique sound."

Lyrics

Velocity

Written By: c. menza

I breath you in
every thought
makes me spin
you oughta know by now how I feel
you oughta sense my velocity

and here we go again
you run for cover
I'm all you need tonight
your truest lover
come on now get under
my skin

so close I melt
I know nothing else
you oughta know I'm burning inside
you oughta sense my electricity

and here we go again
you run for cover
I'm all you need tonight
your truest lover
come on now get under
my skin

Falling Into You

Written By: c. menza


Take me back in time when we were all alone
No distractions taking up our time
The reasons, I can’t hide
Don’t let it, don’t let it slide

Searching every moment for a new thrill
Living on the outside looking in
The reasons are all too true
Cause I’m falling into you

I am falling into you
Hoping for something new
I’m falling into you

Could you reassure me baby
Cause I’m an easy target for the blues
The reasons are all too true
Cause I’m falling into you

I am falling into you
Hoping for something new
I’m falling into you

Tragic

Written By: c. menza

Just like a soap opera baby
You’re so dramatic
But you know your life is a’really
Not all that tragic

And I’m through with
Staying up all night
To wrong what’s right
Stop messing with my mind

And I am
I’m taking my bow
Leaving somehow
I should have known to quit you

You’ve got it coming a’baby
Don’t act so surprised
You’ll soon get over me and
Dig up a new disguise

Please stop messing with my mind
Try for once to be so kind

Breathe Deep

Written By: Carmen Menza

Breathe Deep

it's only 7 steps to your front door
& I am frozen to the core
flowers in hand - hands of clay
my thoughts escape me - I got nothing to say

my words escape me now
and I am forever yours

breathe deep out here in the cold
shed these words caught in my throat
breathe deep take a hit of fresh air
hold it long and do it right fly by me
----

I had a best friend till the other day
we had a fight watched him walk away
but I won't wallow in my pride
cause I can't swallow what I can't hide

breathe deep out here in the cold
shed these words caught in my throat
breathe deep take a hit of fresh air

Come Undone

Written By: Carmen Menza

Come Undone

take me into your open arms and
tell me that I’m the one
then show me how you have been mislead
while I’m hanging from this thread

take these dreams away
somewhere I can stay

IE, IE, IE, IE, IE, IE come undone
when you’re around
IE, IE, IE, IE, IE, IE I just try
not to drown

waiting for the right words to appear
while you make this life unclear
envy never seems to sleep and I
know when I’m in too deep

somewhere in between
somewhere I can see

Happy Family

Happy Family
Written by Carmen Menza and Mark Menza
Copyright 2009

I knew in my heart
This was my story
It’s you, so help me out

I’m holding my breath
You are the one I’ll spend
Forever with

I can see us standing
Side by side by side

We’ll be a great big Happy Family
Come on baby spend your life with me
I’m a fool for what you do to me

These are the ways
I have been falling for you
I can’t pretend

So now it begins
You don’t have to look for me
I’ll be right here

I can see us standing
Side by side by side

We’ll be a great big Happy Family
Come on baby spend your life with me
I’m a fool for what you do to me

Coalesce

Written By: Carmen Menza

Coalesce

I have to close my eyes
it’s there you realize
that we are one in our souls

all that I wish for
is buried at my core
you are all that I dream

Coalesce one with you
I confess I have to

some things you always know
sometimes you try to show
I could be so good for you

I am not eloquent
but we are surely meant
for something bigger than this

Coalesce one with you
I confess I want to
Coalesce one with you
I confess I have to

I’m hanging on to
to what is true
this thing is bigger than me and you

Coalesce one with you
I confess I want to
Coalesce one with you
I confess I have to
now, Coalesce
Coalesce
