Biography

Moving Target formed in the summer of 2007 when Scott, who quit his previous band two months earlier, got the "itch to rock." He ran into Jamey at a party, where he showed Scott an itchy patch of his skin. They decided that they should join forces and scratch together. One day Ray showed up as the two were scratching, and he showed them a rash he had developed. They let him in and the three took turns scratching each other.

When not scratching, the band is playing infectious punk rock with a message, being compared to the Descendents, Rise Against, and Samiam. Moving Target released their self-titled debut full length in September 2009. They continue their scratching in support of the record, and can be found by following the trails of dead skin that they leave behind.

Lyrics

Honey, I Shrunk the Middle Class

Written By: Scott Wolff

So I bet you can't wait for your picket fence and lawn
Well I hate to tell you that the American Dream is gone
You worked all your life, every night and day
Now you've got time to relax and watch your health slip away

Times are tough, everyone can see it
There's no way to earn a living but you need it
But society's ills won't be cured by this one song
Times are tough, everyone can see it
It's getting worse, can you believe it?
Society's ills won't be cured by this one song

They forgot about a city and watched its people drift away
They said they'd send help someday
But it never came

Times are tough, everyone can see it
There's no way to earn a living but you need it
But society's ills won't be cured by this one song
Times are tough, everyone can see it
It's getting worse, can you believe it?
Society's ills won't be cured by this one song

Ship jobs overseas just to save a buck
The leaders, they'll pack the truck
Revenge, let's turn the page
I think I found a better use for their hand grenades

Times are tough, everyone can see it
There's no way to earn a living but you need it
But society's ills won't be cured by this one song
Times are tough, everyone can see it
It's getting worse, can you believe it?
Society's ills won't be cured by this one song

Deists Gone Wild

Written By: Scott Wolff

Get on the ledge so I can push you off
My dreams fulfilled as I watch you fall now
For this is justice and inner peace
From these deists, we've got relief
What's the reason you deceive the masses?
Are you happy that you've dragged us down now?
Divine approval over the earthly state
Your feeble mind was quick on the uptake

It's been a long time since you've heard the truth. It's been a long time.

Why do you believe everything you're told?
Even when there's proof against it
Still you deny the evidence
That may set you straight
Your beliefs were born to give answers to
Those who can't figure it out for themselves
Now it justifies your prejudice
Against those who don't resemble you now

It's been a long time since you've heard the truth. It's been a long time.

Greedy preachers since the dawn of time
They take your cash, they take your mind
Religious stories, completely fiction
Time to kick this unhealthy addiction

It's been a long time since you've heard the truth. It's been a long time.

Cocktails For One

Written By: Scott Wolff

Friday I had nobody to talk to within a six state drive. So I drank all night, then again all day.

Invite this cloud and think out loud
To my one true friend down here
So pathetic, I just don't get it
Gotta find a way out of here

Saturday I had so many stupid thoughts inside my fucking head. So I set up shop and started again.

Invite this cloud and think out loud
To my one true friend down here
So pathetic, I just don't get it
Gotta find a way out of here

Drinking, I don't care if there's nobody around
I drink all night, doing shots without anyone by my side

Invite this cloud and think out loud
To my one true friend down here
So pathetic, I just don't get it
Gotta find a way out of here
