After a series of events Chris returned to Ohio leaving Roveen without a singer. The band went through over a dozen singers in the Arizona local scene and decided in the summer of 2006 that a change of scenery was needed. Noah and Nolan decided to move to Nashville and start the band from the ground up. While in Nashville Roveen began a search for a new singer and ran into someone with a familiar voice, Chris Olive. After writing several songs together via internet the guys decided to give the band another shot. Now residing in Phoenix, Arizona Roveen has begun to jump into the music scence with full force. Writing over 11 songs and playing over 20 shows within their first three months back together as a band. Combing elements of rock, alternative and soul music Roveen ranges anywhere from hard rock, to straight forward indie-soul. The band has quickly developed a fan base and has become known for the diverse set list and intense live show. Roveen has recorded a three song demo but will be releasing their EP entitled "They End Up Owning You" in January 2008.

Lyrics

Killin' Em' In the Streets

Written By: Roveen

He says come load up your guns
take a bullet for your brother
let me burn on the brand of the land your living under
you can die for the man
or take your chance in the street
I got your blood on my hands
you keep on moving your feet

i said the man hes coming for me
i said the man hes coming for me
you keep on moving your feet
you keep on moving your feet for me
keep moving your feet
you keep on moving your feet for me

day after day and one after another
in the sand makes a man a bad motha fucka
now I walk through the hills that bleed gasoline
on the soilders and souls you keep on moving your feet

i said the man hes coming for me
i said the man hes coming for me
you keep on moving your feet
you keep on moving your feet for me
keep moving your feet
you keep on moving your feet for me

I said you cant wait and let them see
I see you fumble your words
they got you weak in the knees
now you can burry your thoughts
but your minds on your sleeve
I wish that I could say that I still believe

Chorus

I said I gotta kill me a man
this gun in my hand goes
kill me a man again

you keep on moving your feet
you keep on moving your feet for me

Karma

Karma

Verse 1
take your pride and place it on the shelf
she treats you bad
you're out to save yourself
so pack you bags and move into your heart
cause your head is what got you complicated from the start

CHORUS
you dont know where shes going
but she knows where youve been
shes takes you down down
You dont know where shes going
but she knows where youve been
she'll take you down down
when she comes

Verse 2
Now take your soul and pull it from the skin
when you write are
you bleeding from your pen ?
Or do you search the paths of other lives
cause your skin seems oflty smooth
for the scars that you've implied

CHORUS

O When She comes
When she comes

Verse 3
take your pride and place it on the shelf
she treats you bad
you're out to save yourself
so pack you bags and move into your heart
cause your head is what got you complicated from the start

CHORUS

O Live in life wont you come on come home
O Live in life wont you come on come home
O Live in life wont you come on come home
Lord take me out of this spell
O Live in life wont you come on come home
O Live in life wont you come on come home
O Live in life wont you come on come home
Lord take me out of this hell
