Biography

Once upon a time, two Brothers, growing up in Central Texas, were bombarded with everything from Jim Croce to George Strait to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. So, the story goes: The younger brother, Weston Ripps, specialized in percussion and vocals, and picked up guitar and piano along the way. The older brother, Travis, specialized in bass guitar and backup vocals, and picked up guitar along the way. Now, with years of playing in bands; a cover band called Scattershot, and an original funk-rock band called the Jumping Monks, under their belt, they have decided to allow their roots to come out in a very original style. The Ripps Brothers are born.

Lyrics

Halloween Queen

Written By: Ripps Brothers

I let my mind wander just a little bit
I keep my heart infront of all of this
Things seem so easy on the inside,
Don't wanna clog your mind with the thought of mind

Didn't need debris all on it
Coulda had it all or none
Didn't mean to choose one of 'em
Coulda had it all or none

Did we really mean to say
So long, so long
Could we look the other way
It's so long, so long

I'd rather sit here strummin' on my six-string
Makin' up some lines for you that I will sing
The night life it gets so old to me,
Walkin' round, checkin' out the people who don't...really see

Didn't need debris all on it
Coulda had it all or none
Didn't mean to choose one of 'em
Coulda had it all or none

Did we really mean to say
So long, so long
Could we look the other way
You're so long, so long.....
But not this time and not this way,
It all depends on what you say
If it's time for separate ways,
Bodies leave, but souls they stay
....and everytime I get a chance to take a break to make a smile on your face it's Fate
