BandRockPop

Atlantic pop-rock that is showing a delicate balance between the rough edge, experimentation and clumsiness of the indie sounds, and the radio-friendly songwriting style of mainstream music.

Biography

This is a band with a very broad range of influences, drawing its inspiration in almost every genre of music. Major contributors to the "moneywort sound" would be: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, At the drive-in, to name only a few.

But these artists influenced a lot a people, so what makes this band different from the gazillions other bands around ? Songwriting would be the answer to that question. You won't find a band with so many great songs in its repertoire, both in quality and in quantity.

Moneywort may not be made up with the best musicians in the world. But the creativity of the unit compensate largely for the lack of technique of each of its individual members.

This band is not about fancy haircuts, looks and attitude.
This band is not going to make you "dance the night away".
This band won't blind you with its virtuosity.
This band is not even about music.
No wait a minute, this band is all about music

Lyrics

burn my eyes

Written By: Nicolas Harvey

BURN MY EYES

I'd like to know what went through your head
Well i know but i don't know
Now you're dead, now you're dead

Maybe you saw something that we don't,
or you didn't and thought they are wrong
They are wrong

Burn my eyes and
All the red lights
Race through life

I don't know where you're going in the end
But by now you should know
Where i stand, where i stand

If you were given another chance
Would you do it all over again
Except the end

Burn my eyes and
All the red lights
Race through life

Hang on tight. stay by my side till i
Let you down again. And then we'll start back

Hang on tight. stay by my side till i
Let you down again. And then we'll start back
You know that's a fact. Why don't you let me down

Instead

Written By: Nicolas Harvey

INSTEAD

I've told you before. And i'll tell you again
This is not a war, this is just a trend
So open up your door, and bring down your fence
Cause the best reward, is that you gave a hand

But it's nice to see you back
Emerging from the dead
Another heart attack
Another failure

Always ask for more, you'll find nothing in the end
I've told you before and i'll tell you again
So open up old sores, and make of pain a friend
You'll find out that there is nothing left to understand

But it's nice to see you back
Emerging from the dead
Another heart attack
Another failure

Instead.........

But it's nice to see you back
Emerging from the dead
Another heart attack
Another failure

Tomorrrow's the day

Written By: Nicolas Harvey

TOMORROW'S THE DAY
Fiercely looking
For the easy way out
Working hard not to try
To do something you like

Lying in bed
Lying to bring her there
All your life is a lie
Unkept promises

And the Universe
Will celebrate with you

Fed up and scared
And about to collapse
And about to go wild
And do something bad

Tomorrow's the day
And tonight's the night
You'll start a new life
Well i wish you the best

And the Universe
Will celebrate with you

And you try to get in
As i try to get out
Or is it the opposite?
Is it the opposite?
And you try to get in
As i try to get out
Or is it the opposite?
Is it the opposite?
You have set the pace
I have blazed the trail

And the Universe
Will celebrate with you
I've had it with myself
With me i'm through

With my luck

Written By: Nicolas Harvey

WITH MY LUCK

Four on the floor, i'm resting my case
Then i flee
Won't hear you, hear you, hear you
Knocking on my

Door anymore, looking amazed
And amazing
I'll miss you, miss you, miss you

But with my luck
All i got to do is start again
With my luck
With every new beginning comes an end

Spinning the wheel, everything on red
If i win
I'm sealing, sealing the deal
And i'm

Leaving behind everything i have
And you'll see
I'll make it, make it on my own

Crying, laughing, i'm sadder than you think
I'll be screaming, moaning
Happiness's a blink, blink, blink

But with my luck
All i got to do is start again
With my luck
With every new beginning comes an end

It's gonna be a hard long road.......
