The Press Club

BandRockAlternative

The heart of rock and roll trapped in a prison of smooth grooves.

Biography

We awoke to find rock music in a state of shambles...one by one, we grabbed our gear and begin to rebuild...

Form follows function. We were built for this.

Featuring former members of Seconds Away, the Innocent Barstools, Homeslice, and more.

Influences? Classic rock, with a liberal dosing of funk, blues, and some classic metal.

Lyrics

Leave Tonight

Written By: Mark Borison

In the morning, i'll wake up
and pull the blanket up and
over my head to make it all black again

i've given up on being chipper
for the moment, i'll just forget it all
i'll light this match and i'll burn another down

so what's one more day?
takin' off now might save my life
I don't care what you'd say
I'm leavin' on this plane tonight

She says, "You'll stay with me, right?
I'm tired of playing coy, without me, you're just seconds away from the Fallout, Boy."

so what's one more day?
takin' off now might save my life
don't care what you'd say
I'm leavin' on this plane tonight

so what's one more day?
whoa-oh-oh ohh-whoa-oh-oh
don't care what you'd say
I'm leavin' on this plane tonight!

Even Though

Written By: Mark Borison

right now
you're chasing me back down
but like the wind cannot be caught
so shall I not

No matter how hard I try,
This is the last time.
So, I guess i'll say goodbye
I guess...say goodbye

come now, take this ride
where the telephone pole
meets the passenger-side
i'll keep parting your sea of lies
you're wasting your breath,
and i'm wasting my time--

No matter how hard I try,
this is the last time.
So I guess i'll say goodbye.
I guess...say goodbye.

No matter how hard I try,
this is the last time.
So I guess i'll say goodbye.
I guess...say goodbye.

Monster

Written By: Mark Borison/M.Taylor

(Honey) I swear, it won't happen again,
I scream as I push her out.
I know I can't tell her
it's within me that I doubt.

I hide my face in tasks
to make you think that I care
when really I can't stop,
the pain is too much to bear.

Lie after lie,
a web of deceit I make.
In trying not to break,
I become the monster that hid inside.
All I want is to be loved,
but all i've become is hate.
I try to grip my sanity,
but it's all too late.

The morning reminds me
that my dreams will never come true.
I'll remain lonely and cold--
--if only someone knew!

Don't make me face my demons,
they laugh in my face;
they dance within me;
I have no safe place...

Lie after lie,
a web of deceit I make.
In trying not to break,
I become the monster that hid inside.
All I want is to be loved,
but all i've become is hate.
I try to grip my sanity,
but it's all too late.

Lying to cover lies,
on goes my tale of deceit
and fighting the monster within
only brings defeat...

Lie after lie,
a web of deceit I make
In trying not to break,
I become the monster that hid inside...
NO ONE UNDERSTANDS
NO ONE WILL BELIEVE ME
I try to grip my SANITY
but it's...all...too...late...

It's all too late...
so I cling to my horrible drug
for nothing can be undone
this monster
has. truly. won.

DLG (Daddy's Little Girl)

Written By: Mark Borison/M.Taylor

Captivating princess,
all eyes have to be on you
but if no one paid attention,
what would you do?

You'd crumble and fall
into a mess of despair
where these walls you've fashioned
tumble everywhere

You selfish little girl
You always want more
'Daddy's little girl'
won't make it in the world
but soon you'll see that life's not fair
and daddy won't always be there

Your friends laugh behind your back
because they're made of plastic too
(two-faced little girl, I can't believe I even know you)
but how can you say that you love me
and use me as a pawn in your game
well, i'm through being nice
cause that shit is so lame

You selfish little girl
You always want more
'Daddy's little girl'
won't make it in the world
but soon you'll see that life's not fair
and daddy won't always be there

You sell your soul for labels
but they won't fill the void
your clothes can't hide how ugly
your heart's become
find the beauty in yourself
and you might make it after all

You selfish little girl
You always want more
'Daddy's little girl'
won't make it in the world
but soon you'll see that life's not fair
and daddy won't always be there

You selfish little girl
You always want more
'Daddy's little girl'
won't make it in the world
but soon you'll see that life's not fair
and daddy won't always be there

Discography

We've been in the studio for a while now and we've finally got a few samples for you to listen to on here! Stay tuned for our release date!!!

Set List

We perform both originals and covers; our original set tends to vary between 40 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes--depending on the venue's request. We also do cover sets, and that lasts about 2 hours, longer if we pepper in some originals.

However, some of our covers have been deemed 'remakes,' and they've found their way onto our original set:
"You Should Be Dancing" by the Bee Gees
"Maneater" by Hall and Oates
"Radar Love" by Golden Earring
"Stranglehold" by Ted Nugent (baaaaa-bayyyyy)
