Miles

BandRockPop

The music of Miles is fluid. A diverse cross section of influence and eccentricity. Bringing together distinctly different tastes to create music that is sonically unified but eclectic in form and delivery. Ideally you will enjoy it so much that you don't realize how much thought went into it.

Biography

Ingredients:

-A fastidious aesthete who ruthlessly batters four plastic skins and four metal discs in a torrent of polyrhythmic splendor
-A master of tranquility and serenity whose digits conjure layers of multi-timbral melody
-An optimistic ideator whose ruminations reverberate through six strings and a tuneful tenor
-A playful yet steadfast anchor known for occasional four-string deviations and talent with thesaurus

Recipe:

Mix three-parts living room rock to two-parts self-obsessed neurotic songwriter. Add a tablespoon of funk soul and a pinch of power pop. Shake till fluid. If the mixture breaks into improvisation, heat under hot stage lights for 30 seconds to a minute until precision returns. Top with Shavings of neo-folk and electric blues. Best served loud.

Lyrics

Where You Were

Written By: Marc Plotkin

I wanna lose track of time
Just lose that sense on purpose
Play til the feeling goes away
Then do the same tomorrow

I wanna do like my heros did
Though I know verbatim's not the way
But maybe if I am not tricked
It'll all, give me something to say

And though I'm not yet used to it
Listening seems to work
But think, try, fall, lie
And you're back where you were

Last time you were in this headspace
There was no space for you at all
And now you've carved yourself an inch or two
But you've hit another wall

And bam you're back again my boy
Familiar in the worst of ways
But you've been told what to do before
But you'll still, waste all your days

And though I'm not yet used to it
Listening seems to work
But think, try, fall, like
And you're back where you were

And pride aside you'll pay attention
Cause it's what you pretend to do
But just because you said you'd change
Doesn't make it true
No it doesn't make it true

And though I'm not yet used to it
Listening seems to work
But think, try, fall, lie
Think, try, fall, lie
Think, try, fall lie
And you're back, where you were

Just in Case

Written By: Benjamin Jacobs

That day was so cold
My breath was thicker than the smoke
Snow mixed with the salt
Serpentine on the asphalt

All I have is this cloudy view
of the naked trees and the gray afternoon
Anticipation keeps my nerves on fire

Stiff knees and lips cracked dry
Complexion of a ghost
Meets salty tears and puffy eyes
I cried and I don't know why

Just in case you wanna leave
It's ok
Just in case you don't believe me
It's ok

The words she chose to use
Slipped right through the armor protecting you
The pain distorts your face
Love never had such a bitter taste

Twenty years this fight's been raging on
With nothing lost and nothing won
I can't believe the things I've heard
Before the night's even begun

Just in case you wanna leave
It's ok
Just in case you don't believe me
It's ok
Just in case you can't bear witness to my life
Just in case you want the easy way tonight

I sit alone, paralyzed by fear
Like a child whose parent's fights he can hear
Just waiting for morning to reappear
So we can disappear

Now the space in between
Starts to bust at the seams
And you're drifting away
And all that you can say is

Just in case you wanna leave
It's ok
Just in case you don't believe me
It's ok
Just in case you can't bear witness to my life
Just in case you want the easy way tonight
