Panel of Experts

Panel of Experts

BandRockPunk

Rock and roll that's never part of the "in" crowd. Mix in rock, punk, ska, reggae, and a touch of jazz and burlesque for seasoning and you have Panel of Experts. These guys play hard, play loud, and play fast... oh, and their music is pretty good too.

Biography

Cocktail: Panel of Experts
1 Shot of tenacity
1 Shot of energy
1 Shot of sarcasm
A Dash of talent
A Dash of angst
Add tasty licks and shake well with brass
Serve with a garnish of attitude and a chaser of Rock & Roll Lager

"It's a perfect thirst quencher after another day at the dead end job!"

Lyrics

Liquor Store Girl

Written By: Rob Sells

She’s a liquor store girl
living in her own liquored up, run down kind of world
She’s a liquor store girl
Never doing a damn thing anyone told her to

But she’s going to Chicago, going to New York,
Gonna get out of here
Maybe out to the west coast, but I know my dear
I’ll be seeing you again
In that place where we first met

She’s a liquor store girl
Got a ring in her nose and a tatoo on her arm
She’s a liquor store girl
With an attitude that’s just part of her charm

But she’s going to Chicago, going to New York,
Gonna get out of here
Maybe out to the west coast, but I know my dear
I’ll be seeing you again
In that place where we first met

She’s a liquor store girl

She's a liquor store girl
Always knowing what’s on sale, anything you need
She’s a liquor store girl
Ringing me up she says, “do you want the receipt?”

But she’s going to Chicago, going to New York,
Gonna get out of here
Maybe out to the west coast, but I know my dear
I’ll be seeing you again
In that place where we first met

She's my liquor store girl
She's my liquor store girl
She's a liquor store girl
She's a liquor store girl
She's my liquor store girl

Broken Glass

Written By: Rob Sells

Broken glass, picking up the pieces of my life
That was shattered on a concrete floor.
Shards of pain cut my fingers ‘till they bleed,
And I can’t hold on, no more.
All night and through the troubled day
Will I ever see your face again?

Won't look back, memories fragment in my mind
I guess it’s the way things got to be.
Can’t you see everything is all torn up
Did you lie when you spoke to me?
All night and through the troubled day
Will I ever see your face again?

On my mind, it’s a fragile kind of life
I guess it’s the way things got to be
Round and round, I’ve forgotten who was right
Thrown away like all the memories
All night and through the troubled day
Will I ever see your face again?

All night and through the troubled day
Will I ever see your face again?

Broken glass, picking up the pieces of my life
That was shattered on a concrete floor.
Shards of pain cut my fingers ‘till they bleed,
And I can’t hold on, no more.
All night and through the troubled day
I’ve been looking through a drunken haze
Yeah I’ll never see you again
Will I ever see your face
Will I ever see your face
Will I ever see your face
again?

Double Crossed

Written By: Rob Sells

Late at night before the twilight of morn
Double agent's cover realized
Secret agenda bringing deception and lies
But she's done playing both the sides

Double cross, it plays out in between
The shadows of what’s done and seen
Intrigue to disguise the true intent
Unknown what was said and meant
Don’t even try to repent

Cloak and dagger’s got a price too high
When desires last card has been played
Message intercepted, but the code has been cracked
Both her faces are like a cold steel blade

Double cross, it plays out in between
The shadows of what’s done and seen
Intrigue to disguise the true intent
Unknown what was said and meant
Don’t even try to repent

Double cross, it plays out in between
The shadows of what’s done and seen
Intrigue to disguise the true intent
Unknown what was said and meant
Don’t even try to repent

Well...
Just a silhouette in the dark
Won’t be an assassin's mark
It’s a mystery of your heart's desire
Won’t be consumed by your fire
I’ve stared into the abyss
Don’t need a cold war kiss
Just a silhouette in the dark
Hey... the double cross
