The Glass Menagerie

 Andover, Massachusetts, USA
BandAlternativePunk

We are a pop-punk band from north of Boston. We take the passion and energy behind hardcore and blend it with the emotion and melodic sensibility of pop-punk. We put everything we have into our energetic live shows whether it be a basement show or an outdoor festival.

Biography

Formed in late 2008, The Glass Menagerie formed to create pop-punk music with strong hardcore influence that had meaning to us but at the same time was fun, energetic and could easily be related to by the average person. Our first EP "The Glass Menagerie EP" was released for free online in June 2009 and has had over 1,000 downloads since then. We have been building up our fanbase in the greater Boston area and in July 2010 we are branching out and embarking on our first US tour. We have a new EP entitled "...Trapped In The Amber Of The Moment" which we are releasing on iTunes at some point in June of 2010. We're looking to continue to spread our fanbase and play as many shows as possible.

Lyrics

The Great Escape

Written By: Grant Evans

I made my escape
From her grip today
I left her there with her heart broken

I never said why
didn't bother to try
I knew that she'd just try to change my mind

I know that
This is harder for her than it is for me
and I will try to sympathize that

But her crimes
are tenfold times
Of how I left her there out by the roadside

I made the great escape
From the chains that bound me
Down to her
I don't want to think about it

It was no mistake
It was about time she got a taste
of her own sick and twisted mind games

and she cries
passing the time
To try to figure out what she must have done wrong

THE GREAT ESCAPE!

I made the great escape
From the chains that bound me
Down to her
I don't want to think about it

Another Friday Night

Written By: Grant Evans and Jake Mattison

Friday night, staring at the phone
Maybe if I think I little harder
might get a call from you
and my plans will follow through
I've been waiting for this moment for way to long
Long enough to write this song
But until then, I'll just carry on
(way to long I know its time to carry on)

I know that its late But I want to be with you
Just like everyday we spend together
But now its so important that I see you tonight
It's already tearing me up inside
I don't know what to do with myself without you

I'LL GET THROUGH TONIGHT!
BUT WHAT DOES TOMORROW HOLD FOR ME!

Friday night, still staring at the phone
Maybe if I think I little harder
might get a call from you
and my plans will follow through
I've been waiting for this moment for way to long
Long enough to write this song
But until then, I'll just carry on
(way to long I know its time to carry on)

Things did not go according to plan
They never will, I just don't understand
Why can't things just follow through?
I want them to
I want to be with you
Nothing left to do

Will I ever get it through to you
That I just want to start a new
I try so hard to smile
Think about the better times we've had
But you're gone
I'm all alone
One more day
All I need is a day
I believe the better times we've had

Get Up And Go

Written By: Jake Mattison

I'm just a guy
not looking for a little romance
I wont deny
just waiting for another chance
to advance
oh, you'll learn
its always something new
I'm coming straight for you

Well Ill confess to my crimes
for I would never hurt you so
I'm just one man
say the words and I'll just get up and go
cause all I'm good for
is looking for a girl to walk away with
just say the word
just say those words and Ill get up a go

I such a guy
you can't rely
at a glance
she's mine I'm gonna have her tonight
what a sight
but my girl, she sees me at the door
“It’s no more” she said

She wish she never met
Such a loser
how could i do that to her
I got up and she was gone
I want to take it back
I have this crazy knack
of trying to find a way to keep my myself at bay

I waste your time
I know that I’m not ready
For a second chance
With you

It burns inside
Since I defied
The trust you gave to me
I’ll never be
The boy you thought you knew
