Clinton John Tingler aka “Klynnt Tyngler” (Born July 11, 1979) is an American singer-song writer and musician. He was born in Warren, Ohio, and resides in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he first gained popularity. His primary instrument is the guitar, but he is also proficient at piano, synth, bass guitar, and drums.

In 2007 he began to work under the alias The Reply. This signified a strong shift in musical style to a more Electronica based structure.

Lyrics

America

Written By: Klynnt Tyngler

They seem to forget where they got all their power
Now all they can do is control and devour
They're taking away all of our civil liberties
They sell us a lie and of course we believe

What the fuck is America coming to?

I got a hole in my head and I just can't fill it up
I wonder how in the world has every citizen given up?
They're depriving our rights so that we can feel safe
Dictatorship's the new American way

What the fuck is America coming to?
