Biography

Milkweed is an Ohio based band, with its main fanbase located in Cincinnati and surounding areas. The band's unique sound is a collage of multiple musical styles, yet always remains heavy at the core. With jazz, techno, and hip-hop influences, Milkweed manages to achieve an addictive interplay of melody and groove (and sometimes utter discord) that makes even the most unsympathetic listener interested to say the least. For those that enjoy a good fuck in the ear, Milkweed is definitely the band for you. Milkweed's music will beat you, then gently caress you before it dismembers your seasoned sonic substructure and replaces it with such savory chaos. Milkweed's eclectic musical conglomeration is perfectly complimented with an incredibly aggressive vocal overtone mixed with just the right touch of humor that truly pries open your eyes to the miserable world around you and then forces you to laugh and forget about it. While based in Cincinnati, the band has spent the past several years focused on touring up and down the Midwest and East Coast, from Illinois to Florida to New York, and everywhere in between. During this time, Milkweed has opened for multiple major label acts, including bands such as Techn9ne, Mushroomhead, 40 Grit, Stemm, Vampire Moose, 5 Bolt Main, Rock N Roll Soldiers. They have showcased at Motor City and Mid-Atlantic Music Conferences. The band is entirely self-sustaining, responsible exclusively for all promotions, booking, recording, etc. As a result of incessant touring, rigorous self promotion, and most importantly word of mouth, Milkweed has gathered a large following from all over the U.S. and overseas. Throughout the course of their collaborative existence, the group has released multiple minor recordings, but during the past year, the band has focused its energy on writing and recording what can be considered the group's first official full-length release. In 2005, Milkweed commenced touring to promote the bands first LP, "Body Floss". CD sales have already begun to take off thanks to an established foundation of dedicated fans as well as likeminded record labels and distribution companies across the U.S. and in Japan. Through touring and self-promoting, Milkweed expects to experience increasingly significant success and looks forward to releasing its second full-length album, which is already in the works.

Lyrics

Body Floss

Written By: Milkweed


Body Floss

Im unsettled, and cluttered,
and crippled,
My fucking mind is rippled,
Now who the fuck I am to think that life was simple
To do what I want, when I want, how I want, is how I need it,
I aint even tryin to sound conceited but the shit on the radio
sounds so repeated
They feed on the close minded fossils that need it,
That downloaded my MP3 and delete it,
Got me feeling like a retard I should be jerking off

(Pre-Chorus)
Medicate my Mind, Medicate my mind
Put me on cloud, make my life seem like its getting better
Load another shot, Load another shot
Until I fall asleep on the carpet and wake up in vomit I
Need a groupie Bitch, Need a groupie Bitch
I'm so full of Anger i just want to bang her until the Condom rips
I cant think straight when there isnt anything that I dont need

(Chorus)
Wake me the fuck up
Tell me life dont suck
We eat, we sleep, we shit, we fuck, we live, we die,
So we all lose

What if life was like dinner and no dessert,
What if I told you I already tasted dirt
And it makes me want to throw up that
Theres a possiblity that God is like a Santa Claus for grown ups
Keep im mind all women need to be knocked up
The keeping of life is in our pants gentlemen go Fuck
I made it to 21, 1/4 of my life id done
Stay true to this music like a fucking religion

(Pre-Chorus) (Chorus)

Whose got 3 kids bitching, whining, and fittin, and shittin drowls,
Drawling on our walls, them fuckers dont listen, nor pay attention
So I scream loud, Power bomb their mom,
Im speaking the true language of a family man
Beating and feeding them ass cheaks with steaming semen
Whore keep on cleanin
Couldn't give a shit what time of the month your fucking bleeding
Whose always broke, who always smoke your shit
And dont give a fuck about anything

(Pre-Chorus)

Muffies

Always in a hole, I'm digging my own grave
I crave that radio play but they don't give a damn
About this shit I write from inside shit I wont crystallize
Slit my wrists because I'm pissed
Because you wont bump my shit
I'm just a white man, my home wasn't broke
I awoke with a mind frame of hate now I smoke weed
My mom didn't rape me, my dad didn't either
I don't beat on my children, and I don't fuck them either

(Pre-Chorus)
I couldn't give a fuck about thinking about living without you
You are dead wrong, wrong, quit whining in your song

(Chorus)
How many times have I heard the same old song?
Yeah bitch what?
All I hear is wah,wah,wah,wah.
All I hear is wah, wah, wah!

Can you faggots stop crying and talk some real shit,
I don't care if you were abused as a kid- learn how to live
Babies are born into the wrong hands all the time
Looks like you did worst in your past life than I did in mine
Hold on thats a new song to get your fucking whine on
To get your autograph sign on for your faggot fan pee-ons
So go cry about those bitched that did you bad
I'm still fucking all those bitches that you wish you had

(Pre-Chorus) (Chorus)

Tenchics

Written By: Milkweed

I want to see inside you
I want to open your heart
I want to take you to the end of time
You were all my from the start- from the start
(Chorus)
I can take away the pain I caused myself
Just one more life I need you
You are my angel-
You just dont know it yet but soon you will see
That the thrill that I get is the chill that you get
(Chorus)
I can take away the pain I caused myself
Just one more life I need
I can take away the pain I caused myself
Just one more life I need
When it was all done and said
I fucked you till I came you bleed
I said my love for you was unconditional
Lay you down and spread you open
All that I can think about is...........
What the fuck your soul taste like
