Biography

Motor Sunday - The Answer to a Question:
Can there be a band that has a unique sound, while staying true to a common message?
Can there be a band that allows their influences and personalities to shine through?
The answer to the question is Motor Sunday.
Extremely original and emotionally driven, with a style that is distinct because every song is different, Motor Sunday brings a new attitude to Cleveland music...a different feel, a different emotion.
Motor Sunday is a rock band. It's as simple as that.

Motor Sunday was initially the collaboration of college friends from Cleveland's John Carroll University. Dan Scanlon, Mike Murphey and Tom Scheidemantel got together and started playing cover songs while working on original material. In 2001, Paul Hospodar joined up as vocalist, and soon took over rhythm guitar duties.
With influences that include Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, Sunny Day Real Estate, Led Zepplin and CCR, Motor Sunday is hard to classify...but they are definitely a ROCK band, which has warranted comparisons to bands such as Pearl Jam, Nickelback, and Stone Temple Pilots and Fuel for their ability to hit hard musically yet remain introspective and thoughtful in their lyrics.
The band has played at many of the well-known venues in the Cleveland area, as both headliner and support for a variety of musicians.

Lyrics

Lost

Written By: Hospodar

I'm getting lost and I'm missing the exits
And I'm trying to find out which way to go
I'm running around in these circles again
Tell me when does the next picture show?
A spinning wheel shows these pictures of life
Dictates every memory that I'll see
Just who are you to explain this behavior?
What give you authority?

All that I am is a part of a game
All the answers you expect me to know
I feel the gears grinding deeper and deeper
Is this clockwork ever going to slow?
Collect the tickets and set up the chairs
Its time to watch the captives break free
Just what is it that you ask for, a favor?
How do I earn your sympathy?

Wrong ways and stop signs
And lights that never seem to change
Hold offs, just rewind
Search for a scene I can't replay

I'm in a crowd and I'm shouting out questions
I start to think you've heard this before
I look around and threes no one to talk to
Is there someway I can just let it go?
I grab the phone and I dial the numbers
Knowing everything I can never be
Just what was it, what the hell was I thinking?
It will never be the same for me!

Wrong ways and stop signs
And lights that never seem to change
Hold offs, just rewind
Search for a scene I can't replay
That I can't replay
That I can't replay

It's Gone

Written By: Hospodar

This is not what we wanted
It isn't what was supposed to be
There's danger lurking in the shadows
And what's the truth we're going to see?

I never planned to make it this way
I never thought it'd go this far
And every time I thought it hurt me
It cut, I bled, but there's no scar

You know what this means
I'm never gonna make it out
You know what this means
I'll never be where I want to...

Just look around
This place is dirty and it's so cold
There's nothing waiting in the wings
And what should we be looking for?

I always wanted better than this
I always thought I'd go so far
And any time I thought you'd save me
I cut, I bleed, I fall so hard

You know what this means
I'm never gonna make it out
You know what this means
I'll never be where I want to
I'm just another body, filling the chair
And I'll never make back it without you

It's gone It's gone It's gone
It'll never be the same

It's gone It's gone It's gone
It'll never be the same

You know what this means
I'm never gonna make it out
You know what this means
I'll never be where I want to
I'm just another body, breathing your air
And I'll never make back it without you
