As sure as rain falls from the sky, The OCD Plan will take the world by storm one day. With a great balance of differnent influences, it's hard to label OCD's music genre.

Biography

We’re a four piece indie rock band with a variety of influences which has translated into our album having a diverse sound and limitless song styles.

Since forming our current line up in January 07, we have been able to create over two dozen songs ready for recording and stage. Our debut album, Take Only As Directed, is a selection of some of our songs and is the first recording as a band and was completed live in the studio. We’ve restricted any effects to our recordings so that what you hear on the album is what you hear live.

Our name was derived from the term Obsessive Compulsive Disorder {gotten from the girls in our lives!} and the constant questioning from everyone of what “plan” did we have in place to take the band further, thus we became:

The OCD Plan.

Lyrically, our songs are all very personal and based on our own life experiences be them good or bad. Because of this, we felt it was important to include our lyrics with our album, hoping that it would give our listeners a closer connection to us and our songs. Our music is created through feel and very rarely written down and constructed but with all of us having input to how the song will turn out.

After our album’s release we’ve continued to play shows for anyone and everyone, while also searching for a label to possibly take a chance on us. Our live shows have been described fans and other muso’s as a “powerful, energetic and in-your-face” musical experience mixed with a twisted sense of humour.

Placebo love

Lyrics: G Fernandez
Music: J LaMancusa/The OCD Plan

Stare at me like you want me
Touching me like you care
Telling me that you love me
I can feel the doubt in the air

My placebo love pretends to love me
My placebo love she loves me maybe

Throw away lines again
Imitating love like you do
Calculating all your answers
Twisting all the truths

My placebo love pretends to love me
My placebo love pretends to want me
My placebo love pretends to need me
My placebo love she loves me maybe

Stare at me like you want me
Touching me like you care
Telling me that you love me
I can feel the doubt in the air

My placebo love pretends to love me
My placebo love pretends to want me
My placebo love pretends to need me
My placebo love she loves me maybe

One chance

Lyrics: G Fernandez
Music: The OCD Plan

So you look at me and smile
Laughing at the way I aim so high
Poking holes through all my plans
You’re just another cheap distraction getting in my way

Be content with who you are
You keep on saying don’t look so far
Never do it, never try
You want so little from your little life

One life, one shot, one chance
I’ll take it here right now
One life, one shot, one chance
I’ll make it here somehow

You put out and you put me down
Your jealousy shines through your everlasting frown
Another interruption in my high
Trying to break my wings in mid-flight

Stupid me, I want so much
But you its nothing gained so it’s nothing lost
Play it safe and I’ll never fall
But what do I get from never falling at all?

One life, one shot, one chance
I’ll take it here right now
One life, one shot, one chance
I’ll make it here somehow
One life, one shot, one chance
I’ll take it here right now
One life, one shot, one chance
I’ll make it here somehow

Variation

Lyrics: G Fernandez
Music: B Fagan/The OCD Plan

Just close your eyes and cover your ears
You dont need them for the show
Just let our bodies wanna do the talking
Got plenty of seed to sew
Gotta lay it down and get it right
Gonna make you feel so high
Gotta back it up and slow it down
Turn your frown into a sigh

Oh….Oh….Let me move on in behind
Oh….Oh….I’ll take you on the upside

Sweat just dripping from every pore
Youll think youve gone insane
I’ll blur that line in the sand
That separates pleasure from pain
Im every man that you ever wanted
Im every man youve fantasized
Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groan
Make you quiver within your thighs…huh

Oh….Oh….Let me move on in behind
Oh….Oh….I’ll take you on the upside (x2)

Gotta change it up and change it down
Variation with a dirty style
Gotta beg for more and plead for less
Making sure its what I like
The encore is all you want
Just to finish off this show
With a snap of my wrist and a flick of my tongue
Youll be bathing in the afterglow…huh

Oh….Oh….Let me move on in behind
Oh….Oh….I’ll take you on the upside (x2)

Checkin out

Lyrics: G Fernandez
Music: The OCD Plan

Checkin out
Even though my life was so thin
Checkin out
I’m checkin out so you can begin

Checkin out
Hoping you can celebrate my life
Checkin out
Think of me but don’t cry just smile

Hey yeah, hope you never say to me goodbye
Oh yeah, I’ll always be standing by your side

Checkin out
I’m hold on to all your pain
Checkin out
Hoping you can start again

Checkin out
No need to ever be scared
Checkin out
Hoping you will lose your despair

Hey yeah, hope you never say to me goodbye
Oh yeah, I’ll always be standing by your side
Hey yeah, hope you never say to me goodbye
Oh yeah, I’ll always be standing by your side

Checkin out
I’d like to thank you for your time
Checkin out
Think of me but never say goodbye

Hey yeah, hope you never say to me goodbye
Oh yeah, I’ll always be standing by your side
Hey yeah, hope you never say to me goodbye
Oh yeah, I’ll always be standing by your side
