Biography

Tired of cookie cutter rock and roll? Looking for a band that is totally unique and creative? Look no more! SLOW MOTION DRIVER is a band dedicated to the rebirth of creative, fun, thought provoking and just plain awesome rock music! A collaboration of pop-rock vocals with progressive and heavy rock influences brought the vision of SMD to life. A unique combination of soaring vocal melodies and creative lyrics, rhythmically strong bass lines and mesmerizing guitar riffs, all tightly held together by steady and aggressive drumming, has become SLOW MOTION DRIVER. SMD has been seen performing all over the New England area and has graced the stage with the the infamous Angry Hill, American Idol Star Constantine Maroulis and band Pray For The Soul of Betty, New York City’s indie phenomenon, The Cringe and recently opened for Wind-Up Records new pet project, Thriving Ivory. In short, SLOW MOTION DRIVER is quite possibly the most impressive four-piece band out of Boston in some time and will no doubt quench the musical pallet of even the most pristine Rock Scholar!

Lyrics

Human

Written By: Brent Barlow

Verse 1:

Father O’Leary had a new kind of theory,
It went with the order of the day,
At Matins he was clever,
At Sext he was better,
But by Vespers he’d blow them all away,

A man of pure vision, religion and self-propriety,
Went down on his knees as they halled his filthy ass away.
Cryin…

Chorus:

Who are you to judge me?
Who are you to begrudge me?
I get crucified everyday!

Who are you to save me?
Belittle and berate me?
HUMAN…is the answer that they gave.

Verse 2:

Two years or more he still paces the floor,
To regain a righteous reputability,
Finding a reason for that one open season is a quest in which he always must believe,
Confined in his ignorance is a heart where the beast still strives to live,
It’s something he knows and it’s something he can never forgive,
Crying…

Liquid

Written By: Brent Barlow


VERSE 1:

Tiny little bottle, beside us on the floor,
Always seems half empty and it’s always wanting more,
Fill it with our vision, drink it down with me,
Try to find some wisdom in this wicked little tea,
Never clearly thinkin’, but what’s the use we’ve only got each other in the end.
Taste this love, so liquid, to our lips and drink it in, drink it in, drink it in…

VERSE 2:

Such a sweet libation, now wouldn’t you agree,
There’s no need to fight temptation, have another draught with me,
It brings the same old feelings; let the memories filter in,
Let it wash away your burden, let it wash away your sins,
At times we get so wasted, but wasting time ain’t never true when it comes to you and me,
Taste this love, so liquid, to our lips and drink it in, drink it in drink it in…

BRIDGE:
Ooh…Let it slip, let it go, now you’re right out the door, my baby,
(Ah, you walked right out the door yes you did!)
Ooh… Let it slip, let it go but you weren’t waitin’ for a yes, no, or maybe,
(Oh, now how could you just let it end!)
Ooh…Let it slip, let it go, now you’re right out the door, my baby,
(Oh, never gonna see you again!!)

Verse 3:

Tiny little bottle, beside me on the floor,
You always seem half empty and you’re always wanting more,
Gonna Fill you with my vision gonna drink you down you’ll see,
Gonna find a little wisdom in your wicked little tea,
Never clearly thinking, but what’s the use we’ve only got each other in the end.
Taste your love, so liquid, to my lips and drink it in, drink you in, drink it in…

Drink it in, Elixir of Cessation…

You Don't Even Know

Written By: Brent Barlow


Verse 1:

You don’t even know,
You don’t know a thing about me,
If you knew you’d never doubt me,
Tie me up and twist my simple words,

You don’t have a clue,
About the idle things around you,
All was lost until I found you,
Now I simply must be heard,

Because it takes a special person,
Someone sensitive with a certain charm and sophistication,
To take the allegations and never be alarmed,

Cause you have lots of nerve,
Just to walk back into my life,
Struttin’ up and down like you own the place,
Baby you’d better live and learn!

Chorus:

Cause you don’t even know,
You don’t how much I love you,
How much pain to try and touch you,
Reach out and yet always be alone,

You don’t have a clue,
About the two of us together,
We were meant to be forever,
Then to strike the match and watch the whole thing burn,

You don’t even care,
About the feelin’s we left hangin’,
From the ceiling the rope it danglin’,
And you don’t even know!

Verse 2:

You always love to win,
Above the law, no thought of ever playing fairly,
Broken rules and hearts that are barely on the mend,

Cheating’s your sin,
Watching close as each ones played then made unable,
Allowing you to run the table once again,

I’m the one that’s lost,
The Easy Mark,
You’ve found a way to take advantage,
Another hit and run, but you’re luck about to end,

No matter what the cost,
Ain’t gonna walk back into my life,
Struttin’ up and down like you own the place,
Baby you’d better think again!

Chorus:

Cause you don’t even know,
You don’t how much I love you,
How much pain to try and touch you,
Reach out and yet always be alone,

You don’t have a clue,
About the two of us together,
We were meant to be forever,
Then to strike the match and watch the whole thing burn,

You don’t even care,
About the feelin’s we left hangin’,
From the ceiling the rope it danglin’,
And you don’t even know!
