Not Quite Rebels

BandMetalPunk

Not Quite Rebels' name, attitude, and album poke fun at the serious attitudes of punk/hardcore/emo/whatevercore bands today, who take themselves too seriously and lose sight of the fact that people like to rock out and have a good time listening to good music.

Biography

What do you get when you mix a diverse bunch of classically trained, happy go lucky musicians, add a dash of suburban malaise, and toss in a pinch of punk rock sensibility? How about Not Quite Rebels, the new sensation from Long Island, whose blistering guitar licks and frenetic stage presence have engendered a rabid following on the east end? Check out what all the fuss is about!

Lyrics

I Didn't Know

Written By: Not Quite Rebels


I lie in a pool of my own blood.

You took a knife and thrust it through me. My heart is punctured and bled through the night.

I’m innocent.

My conscience has never been clearer, and wish I’d found out sooner but


I didn’t know that you thought so little of the time we've been together.

I didn’t know it would be fatal.


Can’t understand your disbelief. You listened to your friends - they just deceive.

They corrupted you while you lost faith in me.


Why can’t you just believe me?

Why can’t you accept the truth?

Why can’t you follow your heart, instead of tearing mine apart?

I never did lie to you. You said it was through. My heart is broken over you.

I’ll never recover from this. I’m stuck in an abyss with nothing at all.

You’re the one who can save it all. Stand proud and tall - don’t believe them at all.

Just look into my eyes, and see there’s nothing to hide - just the tears that I’ve cried.

Waiting For Tomorrow

Written By: Not Quite Rebels

Waiting arms and healing scars are the memories of you and me.

An endless night - the sweetest poison; can’t you see you’ll be the death of me?

Tonight, when I hear the song that is your voice - you siren, I’ll be your Orpheus;

Sail by your rocky death, you tyrant. Just let me have my soul,

Cause I’m waiting for tomorrow, when I’ll forget you ever were.

And then I’ll lie back down to sleep, dreaming of loaded guns.

Is it the worst thing that I did to say I’d be with you forever?

It was a promise that I never should have made.

That night, when I let you play me for a fool - my violence!

I’ll hold your heart in my hand as I close my eyes under the stars in silence, I wish I knew what I know now.


Waiting for, yeah I'm waiting for, yeah I'm waiting...I'm Waiting...I'm Waiting...Oh God, I'm Waiting...

Cause I’m waiting for tomorrow, when I’ll forget you ever were.

And then I’ll lie back down to sleep, dreaming of loaded guns.

Is it the worst thing that I did to say I’d be with you forever?

It was a promise that I never should have made.

Never should have made, Never never never.

Never should have made, Never should have made.

Staring Down

Written By: Not Quite Rebels

Time

It crawls across your shoulders

Across your neck and stares right in your eyes…

I fear

The autumn leaves are falling

Another bitter winter all alone

Staring down

The barrel of that 12 gauge

I can’t see with thumb tacks in my eyes

Feel around

The walls enclose this padded room

Your bleeding arms around me oh so cold…

Cause I know

What it’s like

To wanna be somebody else

Crawling in a blackened space

Broken yet alive…

And I know

What it’s like

To wanna be somebody else

But I’m not…

I’m just me…


A tattooed frown

I’m feeling like I’m all grown up

Photo albums whisper in my room…

Pull them out

Rip and shred the plastic pages

Wash away that memory once and for all…

Embalm

my dreams

Feed the fire

Rip the seams

I’m falling apart…
