Midnight Snack is one of the few bands that can inspire the audience with poetic images of love, loss, and beauty, and simultaneously make them dance dumbstruck by the rhythm and soul of it all.

Biography

The band beats energetically through syncopation-laden heavy jazz-tinged rock grooves and then floats through a sweet ballad soundscape. These musical extremes are stitched together with passionate lyricism, visceral drum fills, buoyant brass and guitar lines, anchors of interlocking piano chords, and sweeping bass lines. Surely this is one of the few bands that can inspire the audience with poetic images of love, loss, and beauty, and simultaneously make them dance dumbstruck by the rhythm and soul of it all.

King Street

King Street

On the corner of King Street I sleep with my friends.
We dine out of boxes to repent for our sins.
In the scheme of it all we don’t notice a thing
We’re not poor, we’re not crazy, we’re just happening.

Fire up the day I could go for a spin
Sitting in a circle with my thoughts growing thin.
My possessions on display as I empty my pockets
And I enter the capsule of a super-world rocket.

So give me your money
Your tears taste like honey if you want them to.
If you like it when its sunny
Then run with me I’m going to the avenue.

Squinting at the sun as it ‘wakens its prize
While the light is refracted by the tears in his eyes.
Alone in his room with the drugs and the wealth,
Promiscuous, shallow, and bad for his health.

The girls have retreated to their dens of the day
They stayed for their hours and then left straight away.
The company of money can drive a man insane
As he rides wasted and secluded on his very own plane.

So give me your money
Your tears taste like honey if you want them to.
If you like it when its sunny
Then run with me I’m going to the avenue.

Entropy

When it comes down to it
Will your face be painted black?
So the world can’t see when you’re ready to turn back.
When it comes down to it
Will you side-step out of line
Or will you plant your feet and conform to their design?
When it comes down to it
Will you show me who you are?
A beauty black night with a head up in the stars.
When it comes down to it
Will you fight or will you flee?
Treason, please, we’re not your enemies.

Choose me, I am just a pawn.
Lose me, I am just a pawn.
Remove me, I am just a pawn.

When it comes down to it
You know you won’t do it
You’re just like them
You’re just like oh.
