Biography

These Jersey rockers have been touring the country in different projects for over 7 years, but not until recently was this fearsome foursome welded together. Their energy and life onstage as well as off has catapulted them into the arms of Emmy award winning Producer Ted Sullivan and his new film "I'll Believe You" (starring such actors as David Alan Basche, Patrick Warburton, Chris Elliott, Ed Helms and Mo Rocca). Not to mention Headlining Spring Fling at the University of Pennsylvania (hosted by MTV), opening for Twelve Stones, numerous TV spots and playing such venues as School of Rock East, CBGB's, The Stone Pony, Arlene's Grocery, The Liond Den, The Mean Fiddler, Crash Mansion and Downtime.

Lyrics

Everything

Written By: Mission Failed

Check, check, what's wrong, is this thing on
Gather round, if you will, this won't take very long
I'm breaking the news, and you don't wanna miss it.
Check, one, two, three are you listening to me?
Open your eyes cause I need you to see
You just can't keep a good man down

It's not what you say
It's the things that you do
So say what you want
I'm still falling for you
I know that you're not like them
And I always hoped that you would notice
Forget what they say
Cause it's not who you are
And let them all talk
It won't go very far
I know that you're not like that
And you're everything, everything, everything

What do you see when you're looking at me?
Am I everything that you hoped I would be
And am I the piece you thought you were missing?
And you call this home, but how do you know
If you're gonna be here when I need you the most?
It makes me sick when you're not around

It's not what you say
It's the things that you do
So say what you want
I'm still falling for you
I know that you're not like them
And I always hoped that you would notice
Forget what they say
Cause it's not who you are
And let them all talk
It won't go very far
I know that you're not like that
And you're everything, everything, everything

And you don't know this
But I've noticed
How you won't put down the phone
When the line goes dead and you're all alone
And it's not all right, to say goodbye
While you're still breathing
And I mean it
God, I just wish that you could see it

Hello Beautiful

Written By: Mission Failed

Hello Beautiful
I’ve driven through the night
Stabbing westward through the heart
I’m being chased and running far
I’ve nothing left to lose
I think it’s time I follow through
I can’t explain the way I am
I know you think it isn’t right
So pour some coffee in your cup
Stay awhile and we’ll make up
For all the bitter useless fights
It’s getting cold outside tonight
(Red light beautiful
Situation critical
I’m counting on a miracle
To get me through the night
But I don’t deserve this
Though you’re still perfect to me
We can make it
We can make believe
Just you and me)
I can’t explain the way I am
I know you think it isn’t right
So pour some coffee in your cup
Stay awhile and we’ll make up
For all the bitter useless fights
It’s getting cold outside tonight

Just Relax

Written By: Mission Failed

God damn, you’re gonna be alright
We’ve got a brand new cure that
Burns out unhappiness and grief
And you won’t feel a thing
Lay down, now this won’t hurt a bit
And who knows?
You just might like it
But I think that they will all agree
That it’s better if you
Sit down and be quiet
But we’re doing our best to
Start up a riot
Cause you’re crazy
But we know that
And we ain’t gonna play
If you’re not gonna dance, no-o-o
Calm down, and don’t look so upset
How could you even think that,
Our treatment doesn’t bring release?
We always aim to please
And though we would rather save your souls
This song would be too long,
It wouldn’t fit on one CD,
But that don’t matter
If you take the recommended dose
We always guarantee results,
So don’t…
Sit down and be quiet
Cause we’re doin our best to
Start up a riot
Cause you’re crazy
And we know that
But we ain’t gonna play
If you’re not gonna dance, no-o-o
Just for tonight you’re gonna feel alive
Look in my eyes
And let the tidal wave deep inside
Open your mind
You’re mine!
