The Moses Gun are a very loud and persistent promise fulfilled over and over again against all odds and common sense often featuring fuzzed out guitars.

Biography

Chicago trio The Moses Gun have been locally relevant for years thanks to a tireless work ethic and undying sense of wonder and excitement about their future. A multicultural band that prove year after year they have more in the tank; live and in the studio. Garage, alternative pop, and metal seem to compete within the band's unrelenting sound. TMG have been heard, praised, and noticed nationally. Lead singer/guitarist Vell Mullens is unique in the way he encompasses sub-pop culture, eye of the world, twisted relationship material, with a drizzle of sarcasm. Bassist Rich Harris and drummer Jim Kendall bring and hold it all together. The threesome's inspirations and tastes are vast and wide but come together locked and focused. No single genre is seemingly overlooked when it comes to The Moses Gun, although their favorite seems to be anything with distortion.

Lyrics

Phlox

Written By: The Moses Gun

I walk the wall but you hold the key
Unlock the door and fall down with me
Fall down within the deep purple flames
Long gone from hope but still hope remains

chorus
You talked a lot when you were here with me
Spectacular in your apathy
Don't think it's cute, but it's still a gift
Don't let it go don't let it go don't let it go
Phlox Phlox

Make me repeat what I said before
Pack all your shit and walk out the door
Drowned twice within the deep purple flames
Long gone from home but home still remains
chorus

Perfect Weather

Written By: The Moses Gun

Purge the saints of what offends
Countless means but no more ends
And given away's returning soon
Sweet rejoicing when they do

But I recall pulling splinters from my hands
And I recall getting high with you

Overflow- the word abstract
Gaunt rewards for what was done
It's not so much that I was there
But rather for my mental health

And I recall pulling splinters from my hands
And I recall getting high with you
Yeah I recall pulling splinters from my hands
'Cause perfect was not good enough for you

I love you and I need you I wanna believe you

But I recall pulling splinters from my hands
And I recall making love with you
Oh I recall pulling splinters from my hands
'Cause perfect was not good enough for you

Perfect means what perfect does when leaves chase snowflakes to the ground
(repeat)

Broken Neck

Written By: The Moses Gun

Love is somewhere I used to go
But hate is someone I used to know
With all these colors inside my head
I'll just stay home instead
Instead
Instead

Long, long overdue
Blame, dull point of view
Don't, don't be afraid
It's not like getting laid

It's one by one
One by one
One by one

Love is somewhere I used to go
But hate is someone I used to know
With all these colors inside my head
I'll just stay home instead
Instead
Instead

Threats float on the breeze
Neglect, death by degrees
There's more, more blood to let
This is your, your broken neck

It's one by one
One by one
One by one
One by one

A Shock of Blue

Written By: The Moses Gun

Maybe way too close
To you gently
Avert the eyes
Contact absolute
But with child's eyes
To please you moist

Got my own identity
In my own suburban home
In the end I'm left with nothing

Paint a valentine
On your body
I won't object
'Cause I'm running into time
With no reflection
To hear your voice

Long gone what could never be
Got you far away from me
'Cause I'm fresh out of second chances

Run to her and say
That she is shocking
Her love is gone
There are priests lined up to hear
My confession
It's funny now

Got my own identity
In my own suburban home
In the end I'm left with
In the end I'm left with
In the end I'm left with nothing

Damn Damn Damn

Written By: Auvell J Mullens III,Richard R Harris

You might not agree
You might not agree
But my hands are cold
Yeah my hands are cold
And it seems to me
Yeah it seems to be
That my James is gone
Yeah my James is gone

As I count the days
I try to think up ways
How can I keep my family whole
I gotta hold it in
'Cause once I begin
Damn
Damn
Damn

You might not believe
You might not believe
But my bed is cold
Yeah my bed is cold
And it seems go me
Yeah it seems to be
That my James is gone
Our James is gone

As I count the days
I try to think up ways
How can I keep my family whole
I gotta hold it in
'Cause once I begin
Damn
Damn
Damn

You best check your self
