BandAlternativePunk

Gainsville punk meets Sweet Dynamic radio rock, ala Foo Fighters, Hot Water Music. Its Hooky with an edge, Intense lyricly, dynamic like the good ole' grunge days. Loud, Soft, Angry, Beautiful, Hurt, and Vengeful. A pretty damn good band if you ask me. I ought to know.

Biography

They've been written of in Rolling Stone Magazine* and sold out L.A.'s infamous Whisky Room, yet you've never heard of them. For this is the new project of former legends. They bring to the Miami music scene the songwriting eloquence of the Pixies with the grit and anger of Post-hardcore acts such as Fugazi and Small Brown Bike. Aggressive choruses with dynamic builds and sparkling breakdowns. For fans of the likes of Modest Mouse, to Thrice, to The Foo Fighters, this is a band for all to enjoy. Singer Mike Barnhill and Drummer Matt Mullally both recently made Miami their home after near death experiences and unsatisfying bands forced them from their West Coast playgrounds. Both veteran rockers, they joined forces with the talents of Kevin Nielson on bass and Patrick Barnhill on guitar. Relative new comers to the Miami music scene, Self Run Will bring world experience, pure songwriting, and charismatic fervor to the stage.

Lyrics

305

Written By: Michael Barnhill

Another day another dollar
Will destroy you buttercup
This city’s beautiful
She’s starving she’s throwing up
This city’s desperate and oh oh
Down, down
Here we go

And if you care like you say that you care
Rush in heroically and hold back her hair
And if you care like I care
You take a higher road and leave her there

Oh I don’t know what’s left to love of this
There’s nothing left but nothing
We should tear it down and rebuild

(Chorus) I know that I can’t accept this as the way things are to be
I’m holding you at arms length baby
To take this wrist and twist you to your knees
Darling I am the salt of the earth
And I resolve to dive into your wounds
This city needs a dictator

Another day another dollar
Will destroy you buttercup
This city’s beautiful
She’s starving she’s throwing up
This city’s desperate and oh oh
Down, down
Here we go
I don’t know what’s left to love of this
There’s nothing left but nothing
We should tear it down and rebuild
(Chorus)

Say Goodbye

Written By: Michael Barnhill

Say Goodbye

There’s no one else
There’s no one else
Dear I swear there’s no one else
Only you can save yourself

But there’s a light
There’s a light at the end of the tunnel
Or so you’ve been told
But each passing day finds you well on your way
To the ranks of the ugly and the old
But this is living
This is living up until the day that it kills you to breathe
Cause that day is coming
Your time is coming
On time we all end up buried beneath
Earth
Dirt

Say goodbye to yesterday
Say goodbye to yesterday
Let it help you find your way
Then just let it end

Seattle

Written By: Michael Barnhill

Cursing the names of nearly washed away “I love You’s”
Torn out in moments of hope by enchanted lost lovers
And young fools

Somewhere in Hollywood, in the canyons of concrete
Your name is in stone forever declaring my love
To those bitter streets

And somewhere in Seattle you’re in bed with another man
Do you love him for his looks or for his band?

(CHORUS) There comes a time in every man’s life
When he no longer can hold on
So I swear to you my dear
This I your last song

There comes a time in every man’s life
When he needs to regain some control
So tonight is the night I’m letting you go

This love has taken its toll
Oh these eyes ain’t seen sober in over a year
And this body can’t take much more
And this love, has lived to Goddamned long
So I swear to you my dear this is your last song

When you lay next to me the sheets they burn so cold
So tonight is the night I’m letting you go
Oh tonight is the night I’m letting you go
Oh tonight is the night I’m letting you go
