ST’s marketability factor is unlike most bands out there. Not only do they bring a visual aspect to the stage that has most faces in the crowd finding themselves in another world, but their music has such a versatile spectrum with depth and meaning you can't help to relate...leaving you wanting more

Biography

Split Ticket is a four man rock band from Dickson, Tennessee that started back in late 2002. With no management or label support what so ever Split Ticket has strived to ignite a flame by targeting shows and various band competitions through out Nashville TN, but it wasn’t until they released their latest album “11:11” produced by Eric Reason from E.R.P. late June 2007 that they would see that flame slowly begin to spread. And it did just that...

...within a month of releasing the album they were already being played on multiple radio stations including Nashville’s 102.9fm The Local Buzz, 88.5fm TTU’s college station in Cookeville, 91.9fm APSU’s college station in Clarksville, countless online stations, etc., had multiple media interviews with all of them along the way, and made friends with locals bands all around that allowed them to begin touring out to Knoxville, TN and as far north as Chicago, IL gaining hundreds of fans along the way. Not to mention they were one of the only bands to make it to Fuse’ TV’s Bodog Battle of the Bands Semi-Regional round in Atlanta GA, came in 14th most requested band of the year by Nashville’s rock radio station 102.9 The Buzz, and nominated Best Rock Band of the Year in 2008!

ST presses on to become one of the greatest band’s ever to come out of Nashville by spreading the word to the masses through radio and street/online promotion and will stop at nothing until they are in the spotlight of America.

Lyrics

In My Hands

Written By: Authors: Michael James Kolodziej & Billy Story - Artist: SPLIT TICKET

It’s in my hands and I don’t know what to do
It’s all that’s left now because I can’t get over you
I’m trying hard not to think about the pain
But no matter what I do it always stays the same

I cannot forget

I guess I’m gonna go now
away to another place where I can
sleep without you in my dreams cause I can’t
take not having you next to me
when I wake

The damage is done now and I’m lying on the ground
I look around for you but you’re nowhere to be found
It’s getting darker and time is standing still
Am I dreaming or is this real

And I can’t live with this

I guess I’m gonna go now
away to another place where I can
sleep without you in my dreams cause I can’t
take not having you next to me

Away to another place where I can
sleep without you in my dreams cause I can’t
Cause I can’t (can’t take this) Cause I can’t (can’t take this away)
take not having you next to me
When I wake

With Or Without You

Written By: Authors: Michael James Kolodziej & Daniel Stevens - Artist: SPLIT TICKET

It started off slow and soft
Then someone raped my mind
I started to feel like I was using you
Big black emptiness inside

But your voice I can’t forget
And your face I cannot quit
I blame it all on your damn addictiveness
That I can’t quit this

Cause I lose with or without you
I couldn’t doubt you if I tried
And I lose with or without you
I don’t know which way to decide

Same routine as we convene
To show our imperfections
Close again laying in my bed of sin
Like a drink I put you down again

But your touch I can’t forget
And your sex I cannot quit
I blame it all on your damn addictiveness
That I can’t quit this

Cause I lose with or without you
I couldn’t doubt you if I tried
And I lose with or without you
I don’t know which way to decide

But your smile I can’t forget
And these head games I won’t quit
I blame it all on your damn addictiveness
That I can’t quit this

Cause I lose with or without you
I couldn’t doubt you if I tried
And I lose with or without you
I don’t know which way to decide

Cause I lose with or without you
I couldn’t doubt you if I tried
If I tried
With or without you
With or without you

yeah

Empty

Written By: Author: Michael James Kolodziej - Artist: SPLIT TICKET

I feel empty
Nothing here to see
All has gone away
And left me empty here to be

Why do I continue on believing
When all I feel is emptiness and grieving
A part of me wants to see the sun rise
I’m so scared I’m gonna break

I’ll keep moving on cause I
have to be strong to overcome this
madness that life has
bestowed upon me time to time

Why do I continue on believing
When all I feel is emptiness and grieving
A part of me wants to see the sun rise
I’m so scared I’m gonna break

Why do I continue on believing
When all I feel is emptiness and grieving
A part of me wants to see the sun rise
I’m so scared I’m gonna break down

Why do I believe
In things I cannot see
I’m so scared I’m gonna scared I’m gonna
Scared I’m gonna break down again

Longing For

Written By: Author: Michael James Kolodziej - Artist: SPLIT TICKET

I wanna know what’s on your mind
Cause I can’t tell when
Your eyes are looking into mine
without pretending
Your fingers slowly touch my face
My heart begins to
skip a beat within it’s pace
But do I know you

I can’t make myself believe
That you are everything that I’ve been longing for
The walls that I have been building…I can’t just let you cave them in
Cause I don’t know you

My clouded thoughts have got me trippin’
I’ve never felt this way
every time that you get near me
I can’t find the words to say
Can anyone tell that I’m afraid that this
will all cave in
And leave me stranded here like I once was
Cause I don’t know you

I can’t make myself believe
That you are everything that I’ve been longing for
The walls that I have been building I can’t just let you cave them in
Cause I don’t know you

Do I know you

I can’t make myself believe
That you are everything that I’ve been longing for
The walls that I have been building I can’t just let you cave them in
Cause I don’t know you

I don’t know you

Do I know you

I don’t know you

Losing Eveything

Written By: Author: Michael James Kolodziej - Artist: SPLIT TICKET

I’m tired of playing all these games
You’re messing with my head
Never thought that I would ever feel this way
You’re liable to find me dead
On the ground I was lost now I’m found
But I can feel this and I am losing everything

Yes I am losing everything

Don’t just stand there looking at me
Like you really cared
If you had acted like you meant what you believe
You would’ve seen me there
On the ground I was lost now I’m found
But I (you) can (can’t) feel this and I am losing everything

Yes I am losing everything

I should’ve know to leave you alone
I knew right from the start
When falling fast it never last
And now I’m bleeding out my heart

I’m bleeding out my heart

And I am losing everything
Yes I am losing everything
Yes I am losing everything
Yes I am losing everything

Cause I am losing…

Medicate

Written By: Author: Michael James Kolodziej - Artist: SPLIT TICKET

You can hate me for all the things I say
But I can’t take it you’re driving me insane
There was a time I can remember my life was set in place
But that is a time I can’t re-enter what’s left I now must face

Wait you’re draining out my life
It’s a waking up to leave all my sweet addictions
So I’ll leave them all behind so you can
Live with a peace of mind

Another fix and I’m sure I’ll be okay
I can’t forget and it’s more than I can take
Pacing around this padded room I search for what I’ve lost
Suffering now from my decisions I’ll dye at my own cost

Wait you’re draining out my life
It’s a waking up to leave all my sweet addictions
So I’ll leave them all behind so you can
Live with a peace of mind

The poison is seeping in
I feel me getting high
I hope you do it different
I hope you see the light

Wait you’re draining out my life
It’s a waking up to leave all my sweet addictions
So I’ll leave them all behind so you can
Live with a peace of mind

Angels

Written By: Author: Michael James Kolodziej - Artist: SPLIT TICKET

Come with me
Let me take you away
I will show you things
you’ve never seen before

So lay me down
In my grave
I’ll spread my wings and…

Fly away with me into my circle
Lie another time it’s gonna burn ya
I know you’re praying for
You’re praying for this all to end
But you’re too late

Once you’re there
There is no turning around
Cause when you hear His voice
You’ll tremble at the sound

So lay me down
In my grave
I’ll spread my wings and…

Fly away with me into my circle
Lie another time it’s gonna burn ya
I know you’re praying for
You’re praying for this all to end
But you’re too late

Fly away with me into my circle
Lie another time it’s gonna burn ya
I know you’re praying for
You’re praying for this all to end
But you’re too late
