BandRockPop

Exploring new musical directions, The Websters original material could be described as "moody rock". Our originals are a genuine look into the personalities of each musician, brought together into a single focus.

Biography

The Websters have been a staple of the Cincinnati music scene for over a decade. Once synonymous with cover music, that all changed in 2001 with the release of their first CD "Via Satellite" followed by "Websters Live" in 2005.

Influenced by such artists as Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, Bedrock, Bjork and many others, The Websters have always maintained a fundamental love for the production and quality of their original music. The music is a reflection of the many personalities that make up The Websters.

Websters fans are some of the most dedicated fans around and they are always ready to support one of their favorite hometown bands. The opportunity to play our original music in a live setting is always a great experience that every musician in The Websters looks forward to. We would be honored to be chosen this year to represent Cincinnati at this prestigious festival.

Lyrics

So Long Serenade

Written By: Quinn Bolton

She said
I’ve wasted her time and her tissue
She makes everything a very big issue
She says that I’ve wasted her valuable time
She’s thrown in the towel on the rest of our lives
She said
I’m not worth her time and her tissue

SO LONG
Take off SO add BE we BELONG
UNLOVED
Take off UN add BE my BELOVED

She said I’m guilty based on suspicion
She’s called me names I don’t dare to mention
She acts like she’s prone to so long serenade
The stages were set and the roles were well played
She said I’m guilty based on suspicion

SO LONG
Take off SO add BE we BELONG
UNLOVED
Take off UN add BE my BELOVED

She says…what she wants to
She says…what she needs to
Sheeeeeee

SO LONG
Take of SO add BE we BELONG
UNLOVED
Take off UN add BE my BELOVED

Asylums

Written By: Quinn Bolton

Everything is fine here in asylums
Everything looks better through both eyes closed shut-n-tight
Everything is calm here in asylums
Everything sounds peaceful when both hands press my ears tight

Heaven’s put me through hell in so many ways
Countless endless nights in a constant daze
Beaten down to the core what a price I’ve paid
Each time worse then before what a mess I’ve made

Seems the dimmer the wit the smarter the fool
Seems the harder the hit the hotter the cool

Is it ME?
Am I Invisible?
Am I Invisible?
Am I invincible?

Everything is fine here in asylums
Everything looks better through both eyes closed shut-n-tight
Everything is calm here in asylums
Everything sounds peaceful when both hands press my ears tight

Did you cry out my name? I hope someone did
Has the whole world gone sane? Have I flipped my lid?
Echoes drown out the sound of a world so big
Feeling trapped in a hole anyone could dig

A cry would do me some good but the rain won’t fall
Mirror says who’s to blame underneath it all

Is it ME?
Am I Invisible?
Am I Invisible?
Am I invincible?

Everything is fine here in asylums
Everything looks better through both eyes closed shut-n-tight
Everything is calm here in asylums
Everything sounds peaceful when both hands press my ears tight
Everything is fine here in asylums
Everything I am is here take time for me this time…it’s time
