Biography

Mike Grebb first picked up a guitar at age 15, and within a year, had written a half dozen songs and hooked up with a couple of friends to form a high-school band. After four years without a band in college, he moved to Washington, D.C. in 1993 and played around town as a solo artist before helping form the band, Oddbox.

While recording the first Oddbox album (which came out in October 2002 and was featured on MTV's Real World), Mike started work on a solo record at Recording Arts studio in Fairfax, Va. (with the multiple WAMA-award winning producer Marco Delmar). After three long years, the project became the new album, Resolution, which was released in 2005. www.mikegrebb.com.

Lyrics

Wicked Arrow

Written By: Mike Grebb

"Wicked Arrow"
Words and music by Mike Grebb

Well, it's pretty straight
and not so narrow
I chill my bones
down to the marrow
I walk around in serpentine
to avoid Cupid's arrow line

But just when I thought
I could never have felt it
Wouldn't you know
you smiled and I melted

Love is a wicked arrow

Well, I can't lie
I must confess
that I keep my cards
glued to my chest
And FYI, it was long ago
that my love life
went straight to video

But now I feel
like a star reborn
Is it my 15 minutes
or something more?

Love is a wicked arrow
Wicked arrow

Well, I've used up all my spite
I've tried to find fault in life
And I've displayed what I lack
but still you're there smiling back

Well, don't think I've changed
I'm still cold as ice
Don't give me that look
it won't work... yeah, right

Love is a wicked arrow

Vices Underground

Written By: Mike Grebb

I would like you to step inside
and meet your maker
I would like you to be denied
and meet your maker

And your vices are hiding underground
making low and rumbling sounds
and your vices are screaming underground
Stop them quickly before they are found

I would like you to step inside
and meet your maker
I would like you to be denied
and meet your maker

And your vices are living underground
even though you hold them down
And your vices are seething underground
They want to tell you
that you're the one who's bound

And you sink into your chair
because no one else is sitting there
and you drink one for the road
And you sit and contemplate
the poison dripping your fate
as you smile comes in from the cold
You decide it's time to find a bind
with half a mind to leave you alone

Inside My Head

Written By: Mike Grebb

I sit here every night and day
wastin’ all my time away
I sit here with my TV set
and kill myself with cigarettes
Look what you’ve done now
You’re inside my head,
and I gotta take you out

Well ever since the day we met,
you moved right into my head
You pushed out everybody else
and made a home there for yourself
I must see you now
You’re inside my head,
and I gotta take you out

Drive me crazy
Get out of my mind
Drive me crazy
I am starting not to mind

You made your move
and now it’s clear,
there’s no room left for any fear
So go ahead make yourself at home,
I’ll clear out all these skeleton bones
Let’s go paint this town
You’re inside my head,
and I gotta take you out
