Lyrics

Chairs

Written By: Shawn McKee

Life is like a rocking chair
Some are padded nice some are hard on the rear
Life is like a bean bag chair
Sometimes you need help getting up outta there
Life is like an easy chair
Life is like an easy chair

Life is like a folding chair
Fold it up you can go anywhere
Life is like a wicker chair
Stand up too fast you get it caught in your hair
Life is like a stadium chair
Your seat may suck but you’re glad that you’re there

Avenues

Written By: Shawn McKee

Mountain’s too high and the valley’s too low
Don’t know which way to go
I think I’m fine I think I see a sign
I think I’m just fine
I take a bypass through a dusty ridge
Over the waters across the bridge
I think I’m fine I think I see a sign
I think I’m just fine

In this life the avenues you take
Sometimes they break and sometimes they take
Just see the signs that feed the inner man
Just tackle the choices and tackle the issues at hand

Through the forest light flows through the trees
Almost there take it by the breeze
All that’s yours the echoes in your head
Never knowing the signals you’ve read

The avenues infinity to choose
Absorb the information signs hold all clues
The red the green the echoes in your head
The jungles the leaves and the valleys the trees
They’ll all quiet the signals you’ve read

Obstacles

Written By: Shawn McKee

All the obstacles that I have overcome
Seemed impossible to the boy of 21
Could’ve been on the streets
instead I’m here on my feet
never know right or wrong
forgot what they said it’s been so long

so I guess I’ll just relate
to the obstacles in my way
just to make it through another day
but soon I’ll be there

thought I was doin well
between the points I never fell
there’s only one way to run, she said,
but I can still have some fun yeah
then a stumblin stone came in my way, yeah
but I made it through yes I made it through
since that day

so I guess I’ll just relate
to the obstacles in my way
just to make it through another day
but soon I’ll be there

Set List

Songs: Spydoll Groove, Play, Chairs, You Think, Obstacles, Avenues, Humdiddly, X/4
We play a 1.5 hour to 2 hour set, take a half hour break to mingle with the crowd and then finish the night. For those long nights we fill in with suprise cover tunes (like Zepplin, Hendrix, etc.). There is no cover tune that would fit the type of music we made so we pick fun ones we like and improvisational jam them up.
