Biography

Mere, an original rock and roll band from Hoboken, NJ, delivers powerful, hook-oriented music and a live show best described by the word "intense." The song-centric approach to writing ensures that the listener always hears a balanced, coherent song, rather than a collection of musically pretentious parts. The musical identity that is achieved via this approach is a full, textured sound replete with sonically innovative ideas and memorable hooks.

Mere is currently recording a new album. Mere has opened for national acts such as INXS, Seven Mary Three, OK Go, Oasis and The Black Crowes. Their live show is a high-energy performance that has swept the band's home state and mesmerizes crowds wherever the band plays. With a strong rhythm section, engaging guitar hooks and powerful vocals and harmonies, Mere is an exciting live act both musically and visually.

Lyrics

Anything at All

Written By: Brian Bason

VERSE 1
I've been asleep for too long,
It's 4:00 and I'm still reeling in this bed I made;
My world around I don't belong,
By now I'm pretty fucking sure this place is killing me;

Sometimes it all feels the same;
You're never really sure if you're breathing until your air runs out;

CHORUS
I drive all night in my car;
You keep me wasting time, just waiting for this;
And I'll keep my back on the wall (turn my back on the world);
Just want to believe in you, or anything at all;

VERSE 2
You left a piece of yourself,
Like fingerprints on my redemption in this God-shaped hole;
And I'll keep it all for myself,
And sink to hell with good intentions 'til I loose control;

Some things are never the same;
You're never really sure what your losing until your time runs out;

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I feel all of this melt into grey and your voice seems to fade
And now the silence makes me deaf;
And I still remember your face but this lifetime's been racing
Away on me, so fast;
And these moments pass faster than an hour glass

CHORUS

Circles

Written By: Bason/Braswell

Verse 1:
A letter opened said you'd taken me for all that I had, all that I am
My empty thoguhts are turning me inside out, I'm turning over
You can be sure
That I can see, you're killing me

Chorus:
Come back and give up your words
Lay back and let me rehearse
I'm drawing circles round inside that memory
I can't decide who's wrong or right

Verse 2:
The sight of your skin took these innocent thoughts back to your bed
I'm suffocating your arms open and I'm breaking through your window
You can be sure
That I can see, you're killing me

Chorus:
Come back and give up your words
Lay back and let me rehearse
I'm drawing circles round inside that memory
I can't decide who's wrong or right

Bridge:
Don't say we know who we are
Don't say we tried too hard
Don't say we've gone too far

Chorus:
Come back and give up your words
Lay back and let me rehearse
I'm drawing circles round inside that memory
I can't decide who's wrong or right
