Biography

From Parts Unknown (AKA Ravenswood, WV) hail Sheered Lepus. Ravenswood is best known for having more churches per capita than any other town in the United States. It also rests on the banks of the Ohio River. The endless struggle between church and skinny dipping can take a toll on the developing teenagers mind and frequently results in a schizophrenic type behavior. It is from this twisted state that Sheered Lepus was born. Now years into the struggle the Lepus is primed to pounce.

Our sound is “Heavy Handed, Riff Laden Rock and Roll Goodness” derived from a steady diet of Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Old School Metal, Jane’s Addiction and many classic rock greats. Influences within the band are wide ranging but when boiled down become a thick, heavy Lepus stew. We may let you dance for a song or two but then we’re going to punch you in the mouth.

Vocalist, FDP (The Fabulous Dancing Pig) is pound for pound the world’s fastest mammal. The Pig was once quoted as saying “find me a 250lb cheetah and I’ll out run it”.
Bassist, Kevin Bush, refuses to accept the nickname Skunk Ape.
Guitar Picker, Chriss Smith (Shmeg), plans to legally change his name to Shmegommi. Support for this within the band is mixed.
Drummer, Scott Ellis (Elli-mo), is a magnet for flying rodents and a snappy dresser.

Lyrics

Guise

Written By: Sheered Lepus

With the breath of madness upon me
Breathin’ down my neck
Feed me anti-venom
These walls are making me sick
Have a pack of slow death
Try again to think
Quiet the demons inside me
Pour another drink

She wouldn’t reason with reason
She like ta riddle and rhyme
She wouldn’t reason with reason
A haze of liquor and lies

With the breath of madness upon me
Stench knots in my throat
The din of nothing rings in my ears
And I can’t find my remote
Let me peer into reason
Let it burn in my eyes
Let that slut good fortune
Peer out from her disguise

She wouldn’t reason with reason
She like ta riddle and rhyme
She doesn’t reason with reason
A haze of liquor and lies

Man she put it right to me
She packs one Hell of a punch
Success and string in her teeth
She ate my lure for lunch
But I just keep grindin’
My weary feet to the bone
Yeah I trudge on ahead
Until I get where I’m goin’

She wouldn’t reason with reason
She like ta riddle and rhyme
She wouldn’t reason with reason
A haze of liquor and lies

Cocaine Happy

Written By: Sheered Lepus

Sitting there in silence
Anticipation burns
Cocaine happy
As you wait your turn

Money gone nothing learned

Primitive asylum
Twisted twist of hips
Ashes over your ashes babe
As ya come to grips

But it came all too late
The pull of it all too great
It came all too late
The pull of it all too great
So ya set and wait

You settled for nothing-Then settled for less
And you knew better-But I knew it best
Summon the courage-The courage to be
Someone else’s burden-The courage to flee

But it came all too late
The pull of it all too great
It came all too late
The pull of it all too great
So ya set and wait

You settled for nothing-Then settled for less
And you knew better-But I knew it best
Summon the courage-The courage to be
Someone else’s burden-The courage to flee

But it came all too late
The pull of it all too great
It came all too late
The pull of it all too great
So ya set and wait

Sitting there in silence
Anticipation burns
Cocaine happy
As you wait your turn

The Right

Written By: Sheered Lepus

Hit the bottle
Pound the crop
Hit the bottom
Land on top
From institution
To instigate
A flood of promise
All to late

Space for rent
You can buy the government
Paper trails
To the going out of business sale

from constitution
to contraband
a tunnel vision
a master plan
you rule the wicked
with a iron fist
enslave the masses
on you list

Space for rent
You can buy the government
Paper trails
To the going out of business sale

Spoken Part:
Gold beneath the sand
Drag us down and bind our hands
Still we nurse on vulture’s tit
They stay fat our treasure shrinks

Rat your neighbor
Save your ass
Call a favor
Save your past

Space for rent
You can buy the government
Paper trails
To the going out of business sale

Canis Lupus

Written By: Sheered Lepus

Sun awakes to many dead
Brings relief to those who live
Those who’ve lost one endeared
Their swollen eyes proceed to tear
A naked man is born to the dawn
No knowledge of the beast he spawn
His ignorance fills his mind with scares
‘till death arises with the stars

Screams race through darkened wood
Villagers casually quicken pace
Slam crash wood and glass
Bolting doors and windows fast
Fear breeds like wildfire over
Painful silent streets and countryside

Wary minds abort their beds
Teary families bow their heads
Hoping faith can keep them strong
Hoping god will write the wrong

Sun awakes to many dead
Brings relief to those who live
Those who’ve lost one endeared
Their swollen eyes proceed to tear

A naked man is born to the dawn
No knowledge of the beast he spawn
His ignorance fills his mind with scars
‘till death arises with the stars

Pig Fat

Written By: Sheered Lepus


Chewin on dead flesh
Melts in yer mouth
Suckin on pig fat baby
Tryin to kill myself

Come join my business
Keep yer thoughts to yourself
Hope ya don’t mind me dancing
With somebody else

Act like I’m stupid
But I’m nobodies fool
And if you don’t believe that
Then try pullin the wool over my eyes

Sometimes it hurts when the sights align
Sittin up under this fingernail, killin time

Wipers are broken
And I’m dying of thirst
I keep catchin raindrops
‘till my bladder bursts

Drink ya live lungs fill and ya die
Funny how I manage to stay alive

They say that pound for pound I’m the greatest dancer
It’s true the dancing pig move like nobody else

Slipped on my tanned cow
Truck to the bar
Burned up my fossil
Burned down my car

I don’t mind walkin up hills anyway
And Hell besides it’s a beautiful day

Indestructible Love Song

Written By: Sheered Lepus

Siftin’ through the bullshit of my false reality
Peekin’ round the corner, see what’s ahead of me
Trompin’ through the tulips with a big ol go goofy smile
Spinin’ in my barstool been here for quite a while

And we’re happy, smilin’ and singin’
Our little song, without you
Well at least I’m not just settin’ around pretending nothings wrong
When all along, it’s all on you

I like now and you like tease
Rock –n- roll Daddy don’t need ta please
You like sleepin’ and I like sleepin’ around
Well ya know the Lepus back in town

My girl friend told me not to leave
But I did it outta spite
Can’t remember where I’ve been
But been there for three nights
Made my way back home and found
My stuff out on the lawn
I knew the second that I left
That I was good as gone

And we’re happy, smilin’ and singin’
Our little song, without you
Well at least I’m not just settin’ around pretending nothings wrong
When all along, it’s all on you

You like beats and I like peas
Raw hotdogs baby make me sneeze
You like sleepin’ and I like sleepin’ around
Well ya know the Lepus back in town

And we’re happy, smilin’ and singin’
Our little song, without you
Well at least I’m not just settin’ around pretending nothings wrong
When all along, it’s all on you

I like now and you like tease
Rock –n- roll Daddy don’t need ta please
You like sleepin’ and I like sleepin’ around
Well ya know the Lepus back in town

Rehapse

Written By: Sheered Lepus

I was born with a tired soul
Thinkin’ things can only get better
Used up my essence in another world
Got the vision lack the motivation
Seem by now I’d have purged some demons
Keep shakin’ hands with new ones
You see I’ve made senseless sense and I’ve
Got a lot of thinkin’ to do yeah

Rehab-yeah I done been there done that
Relapse-yeah been there done that too
Rehapse-stuck somewhere in the middle
Relapse-may not be done with you

Wish ta god I’d have seen it comin
But eyes are strained when your wearin’ beer goggles
Life of the party and was uninvited
Woke up alone breakin’ bread with strangers

Rehab-yeah I done been there done that
Relapse-yeah been there done that too
Rehapse-stuck somewhere in the middle
Relapse-may not be done with you

I hope I make it through those critical days
I’m runnin out of time for time
Runnin’ out of space

Rehab-yeah I done been there done that
Relapse-yeah been there done that too
Rehapse-stuck somewhere in the middle
Relapse-may not be done with you
Rehab
Rehab
Relapse

Lackey Man

Written By: Sheered Lepus


Lackey man sets and watches the world go by
Lackey man has to dream awake he hides

All that’s lost is all he sees
All that’s hope is watching from his knees, yeah

Lackey man jumps through flaming hoops all day
Lackey man just a dog that’s been well trained

Heel now my loyal pet
I haven’t freed you yet
Play nice and you’ll get fed
Comply I’ll pat your head
Show teeth I’ll beat you down
Show teeth I’ll beat you down
I will beat you down
Yeah, Yeah

Lackey man couldn’t dance without his strings
Lackey man’s lost his voice and can not sing

Heel now my loyal pet
I haven’t freed you yet
Play nice and you’ll get fed
Comply I’ll pat your head
Show teeth I’ll beat you down
Show teeth I’ll beat you down
I will beat you down
Yeah, Yeah
