Biography

We're The Shame Game. We hail from Sylvania Ohio and are all in high school. We've been a band for about year now and have been playing shows at least once a month. We've recorded some home demos but should be recoding studio tracks estimated in November 2010. We're working on our Ep: I Don't Wanna Be on MTV- Ep. The home tracks are currently up on this site. We would love to make music and give it away for free, but since money is already a variable in music, we need the money to make MORE music. We've gone through many lineup changes over the time of being together but now (and hopefully forever) we consist of Kyle (Special K) Tansel on guitar and lead vocals, Lightning Lindsie Pfieffer on guitar and vocals, Eddie (Grungie) Holewinskii on bass and vocals, and Brad the Rad Fad Rymers on drums. Word up.

Lyrics

I Just Can't

Written By: Kyle Tansel

I hear you moan and its not helping me
Clothes on the floor, your naked body I see
I want it bad, I swear I want it right now
I don't know why and I just don't know how

Its not a joke, I swear you're not getting played
When I'm alone your image helps me each day
But I don't see why when you're in front of me
It goes away almost like my hormones left me

'Cause I, I just can't get it up
I know it sounds fucked up
But baby, it is not my fault
Maybe its your face,
Or maybe its your foreplay
And you can't even suck my cock
'Cause I can't get it up

Just move around or maybe do a dance
And maybe then I can take off my pants
Or maybe tell me all the shit you'll do
Its you, its me I swear that I want you

I hear you moan and its not helping me
Clothes on the floor, your naked body I see
I want it bad, I swear I want it right now
I don't know why and I just don't know how

Its not a joke, I swear you're not getting played
When I'm alone your image helps me each day
But I don't see why when you're in front of me
It goes away almost like my hormones left me

'Cause I, I just can't get it up
I know it sounds fucked up
But baby, it is not my fault
Maybe its your face,
Or maybe the noise you make
And you can't even suck my cock
'Cause I can't get it up

You may talk shit in the end,
about me and my "lower friend"
but baby, you're just insecure.
You'll be pissed off in the end,
and you wont be my girlfriend
but I guess I'm not attracted to you.
I guess I'm not attracted to you...

I hear you moan and its not helping me
Clothes on the floor, your naked body I see
I want it bad, I swear I want it right now
I don't know why and I just don't know how

Its not a joke, I swear you're not getting played
When I'm alone your image helps me each day
But I don't see why when you're in front of me
It goes away almost like my hormones left me

'Cause I, I just can't get it up
I know it sounds fucked up
But baby, it is not my fault
Maybe its your face,
Or maybe its the way you shake
And you can't even suck my cock
'Cause I can't get it up

I can't get it up

Protest Song

Written By: Kyle Tansel

Well you're quite a wreck again
Pretty boy fuck again
Handsome and you get all the girls
Well you can't say a thing about my life you're not in
I really don't care if I fit in
Well if I could change the world,
I'd banish all the boys and girls
Who bitch and moan about how I live

Maybe someday people will all come right to their senses
And stop trying to run other people's lives

Well baby I'm a little angry
About my feelings that are set in stone
When people tell you how to look, dress, act, speak
Sit, beg, good boy
Treating us like dogs
Can we not think for our own selves?
Don't we know whats best for us?
Let's all sing this protest song for you and me

You look like a wreck again
Wear a bag over your head
Seriously, just take it off
Do you really care what those other kids think?
Do they really matter to you?
Crack a smile, don't you cry
I'm sick of all this sadness
And these stupid lies

Maybe someday people will all come right to their senses
And stop trying to run other people's lives

Well baby I'm a little angry
About my feelings that are set in stone
When people tell you how to look, dress, act, speak
Sit, beg, good boy
Treating us like dogs
Can we not think for our own selves?
Don't we know whats best for us?
Let's all sing this protest song for you and me

Oh baby, let's get pretty for all the people who say we have to change
Ha ha! I'm just kidding, we don't have to listen or follow them at all

Well baby I'm a little angry
About my feelings that are set in stone
When people tell you how to look, dress, act, speak
Sit, beg, good boy
Treating us like dogs
Can we not think for our own selves?
Don't we know whats best for us?
Let's all sing this protest song for you and me

*At the end of professionally recording this song, the producer said "Next time you write a song try to give it better grammar. It's 'lets all sing this protest song for you and I' not 'you and me'." Hahahah!

Teen Angst

Written By: Kyle Tansel, Lindsie Pfieffer, Isaac Motley, Jackie Alferio

This is our, teen angst song
The years where everything went wrong...

(1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4!)

They say I always lose control
They say my act is getting old
Maybe I don't try to act that mature
I never feel unsure
Of myself

My life has just begun
I'm not gonna end this with a pun
Let's start this out right
'Cause who knows this could be our last night

Here comes the chorus
To another rebellious teen angst song
We're here to FUCK SHIT UP
We wont go home until we do

You never told me what to do
I never said I'd have your back
You cannot tell me what to say
'Cause courtesy is what I lack

Here comes the chorus
To another rebellious teen angst song
We're here to FUCK SHIT UP
We wont go home until we do

Here comes the ch-

*We decided to end songs whenever we want to. Word.

Brat

Written By: Kyle Tansel

This girl will just have to wait,
because I don't stand a chance
Against the guy that she's with
because he's getting in her (PANTS!)
I'm sick of writing love songs
about my inabilaties
I've got a case of jealousy
Cupid just let go of me

What's the medicine to use for jealousy?

He plays football and I don't get a single rule
He doesn't even have to try and I just make attempts at cool
He has the girl that I want, she doesn't even notice me
No matter what I do, I just can't break invisibility

Since day one that I saw her
I've wanted her to notice me
I'm doing all these antics
Am I just that hard to see?
He has her in a lockdown
She's with the guy that I hate
Perfect hair and smile
I will get her just you wait

What's the medicine to use for jealousy?

He plays football and I don't get a single rule
He doesn't even have to try and I just make attempts at cool
He has the girl that I want, she doesn't even notice me
No matter what I do, I just can't break invisibility

What's the medicine to use for jealousy?

He plays football and I don't get a single rule
He doesn't even have to try and I just make attempts at cool
He has the girl that I want, she doesn't even notice me
No matter what I do, I just can't break invisibility

He plays football and I don't get a single rule
He doesn't even have to try and I just make attempts at cool
I'm just being a brat, a boy who didn't get his way
I guess that I'll get over this. Who really cares anyway?

*Everybody yell pants.

I Don't Wanna Be on MTV

Written By: Kyle Tansel

Game shows, love, and sodomy
(I don't wanna be on MTV)
Making people think its reality
(I don't wanna be on MTV)
Bimbos that never went to school
(I don't wanna be on MTV)
Six-pack d-bags who think they're cool
(I don't wanna be on MTV)

You may think I'm jealous but theres no way that I am
I'd rather be using my brains than be sixteen and pregnant
When I get enough money I'll make my own TV show
And become another music TV hoe

Fake hair and orange skin is beautiful
(I don't wanna be on MTV)
Man, hahah! Doesn't sarcasm rule?
(I don't wanna be on MTV)
Throwing up makes us look hot
(I don't wanna be on MTV)
Mmm... work it, umm... lets not
(I don't wanna be on MTV)

I'm not shutting up now, I'm not gonna stop
First amendment baby, you can't call the cops
Generations later, our kids, kids will turn out dumb
And the Earth is gonna turn to scum

So let the music back in
Let the music back in

Game shows, love, and sodomy
(I don't wanna be on MTV)
Making people think its reality
(I don't wanna be on MTV)
Fake hair and orange skin is beautiful
(I don't wanna be on MTV)
Man, hahah! Doesn't sarcasm rule?
(I don't wanna be on MTV)

I don't wanna be on MTV

Headstrung for Josie

Written By: Kyle Tansel

She's got sweet hair, sweet smile, sweet face
I hope she stays for a while now
Orange and pink hair, going everywhere
Nothing's gonna stop her from coming now
She has those looks, she has those eyes
Oh, is she capable of lies now?
And when she walks I love the way she moves

This may be the sweetest girl that I have ever met

Josie, she's the girl for me
She's the one whose always been in my dreams
And I love the way she looks at me
I think I'm a little...
Headstrung for Josie

She's got that voice its like a song
I hope she sings it all night long
And when we met I really felt so complete

This may be the sweetest girl that I have ever met

Josie, she's the girl for me
She's the one whose always been in my dreams
And I love the way she touches me
I think I'm a little...
Headstrung for Josie

We lay here in this mess a garbage pale of mass confusion
And a messed up illusion
I hope she sees me
'Cause she knows how to please me
At times like these

This may be the sweetest girl that I have ever met

Josie, she's the girl for me
She's the one whose always been in my dreams
And I love the way she's hugging me
I think I'm a little...
Headstrung for Josie

Josie, she's the girl for me
She's the one whose always been in my dreams
And I love the way she kisses me
I think I'm a little
Headstrung for Josie

This may be the sweetest girl that I have ever met

Josie, she's the girl for me
She's the one whose always been in my dreams
And I love the way she's loving me
I think I'm a little
Headstrung for Josie

Headstrung for Josie
