An eclectic crew of ambitious musicians, Thirty-Six Thirty provides a never-ending barrage of reflective lyrics encased in emotional vocals and catchy guitar riffs built on a solid foundation of bass grooves.

Biography

Thirty-Six Thirty, an original alternative rock band, comes to you from Bucks County PA. Originally formed as a studio project by a husband and wife team the band released its first album “Angry at the World” in 2010. The group quickly expanded and like most bands experienced some growing pains along the way.
Although Thirty-Six Thirty’s music is clearly influenced by groups like Metric, the Cure, Paramore, Linkin Park, Green Day, and Pink, the band sounds profoundly different. Falling in the new wave, post modern, and indie bands categories, Thirty-Six Thirty incorporates driving bass lines as a foundation for emotional vocals and layered atmospheric guitar lines held together by solid percussion.
What really separates the band from many other groups is their approach to lyrics which pick up on both, contemporary social themes and personal life experiences, equally. With their second album “Control Issues” finished, Thirty-Six Thirty is looking forward to taking the stage and share their music with audiences everywhere.

Lyrics

Grumpy Old Man

Written By: Thirty-Six Thirty

Complacency has run amuck it’s the same routine again
Why should it change, why should I change, I snap at you, you yell at me

Who needs to live with this hostility, we could go on like this for days on end
We could go on what is in the way, but I know your just a grumpy old man

Your right of course, your right, your right
Your right of course, your right, you’re always right
Your right of course, your right, your right
you’re always right, you’re always right

How does it feel to be the only one
The only one that is always right
You speak your mind you say your piece
You know so much, about everything
And then there are times you just walk away
You walk away and don’t let me have my say
I could say things are going to change
But I know your just a grumpy old man

Your right of course, your right, your right
Your right of course, your right, you’re always right
Your right of course, your right, your right
you’re always right, you’re always right

Oh were we talking again
Of course I was listening
I didn’t do enough of this
Or maybe too much of that

I’ll wait my turn, I’ll bide my time
You so self centered, your mouth keeps running
I bet you won’t see it coming
A time when I won’t be there to blame
Time changes everything
I’ll play my part, and say my lines
I’ll continue to let you think you know it all
But I know your just a grumpy old man

Your right of course, your right, your right
Your right of course, your right, you’re always right
Your right of course, your right, your right
you’re always right, you’re always right

Denial

Written By: Thirty-Six Thirty

Once, you took my breath away
Now, I just can’t breathe
Remember when
You held my hand in yours
You said you’d never leave
I was yours
And you were mine
We would never part
Promises spoken
Vows not meant to be broken
Don’t think twice that’s not the sound of a broken heart

Incapacitate me
Demobilize me
But don’t feel sorry for me
I don’t have a broken heart

Words stumbled across your lips
And turned into lies
The beauty of the world become tainted in your eyes
So your seeing someone new
Time was meant to ease the pain
I don’t even feel the strain
Because I don’t have a broken heart

Paralyze me
Institutionalize me
Have no pity on me
I don’t have a broken heart

Are you taking inventory on
the damage you’ve done
Why would I give you the satisfaction
I have no more confessions to make
Now I know how you play the game
You’ve won it all but my heart won’t break

Incapacitate me, paralyze me
Demobilize me, institutionalize me
But don’t feel sorry for me, Have no pity on me
I don’t have a broken heart

Better Than Me

Written By: James Keyes

I see the way you look at me
I know what that look means
Judging me from where you stand(guitar riff)
Judging me from where you stand
Brushing me off with a shake of your hand, you hand

You think your better than me
It’s obvious the whole world can see
You don’t know what I’ve been through
I’d love to know what you’d do
What makes you think your better,
better than, better than

Better than me

Chasing the latest styles
Up on all the hippest trends
I’ve fallen behind yet again(guitar riff)
I’ve fallen behind yet again
So I guess that means we can’t be friends
Can’t be friends

You think your better than me
It’s obvious the whole world can see
You don’t know what I’ve been through
I’d love to know what you’d do
What makes you think your better than me, better than, better than
Better than me

So I’ve fallen behind who’s keeping score
Failure dripping from every pore they like you more
I’ll never live up to what you want me to be
But it is me that you will never see, never see

You think your better than me
It’s obvious the whole world can see
You don’t know what I’ve been through
I’d love to know what you’d do
What makes you think your better than me, better than, better than
Better than me

Don’t pretend that you know what I’ve been through
You don’t even know what you’d do
You couldn’t even fit in my shoes

Verse 1
On the outside
“Hello, It’s nice to see you.
“How have you been?”

On the inside
“Can we go? I’d like to go home.
Can I be myself again?”

Clever and witty
Isn’t it a pity?
He’d rather be alone

Chorus
Painfully shy
Although he hides it well
Forcing him to socialize puts him through hell.
Can you tell
Do you know where he’d rather be
Where he’d rather be

Verse 2
In the middle
It’s him, between me
And the party scene

Slightly off center
He’s got one foot out the door
And I’ve barely hit the floor

Handsome and charming
Isn’t it alarming?
He’d rather be alone.

Chorus

Bridge
Accept the wallflower?
Skip the Happy Hour?
He’s no social butterfly
He doesn’t even want to try
Should I stay home with the guy?

CHORUS

Verse 3
Staying in
No crowds, no noise
Doesn’t even go out with the boys

Want to go out?
Try something new?
You know he’d do it if I’d ask him to

Introverted
Not to be converted
Because He’d rather be with me

Twenty Thousand

Written By: James Keyes

Twenty thousand reasons to leave
Twenty thousand reasons to try

If you’re looking for a reason
Then you’ve got a reason to find
If you can’t think of a reason
Then you’ve got nothing to try

Do you care to find one
Do you care if we survive
Do you try all you can
Do you want a new reason

Look at the message on the wall
What is it that you see
Are you afraid of our fall
What is the message on the wall

Do you care to find one
Do you care if we survive
Do you try all you can
Do you want a new reason

Twenty thousand reasons to live
Twenty thousand reasons to die
Are you looking for a reason
Are you looking for a reason
