Biography

Tommy Justice is a hard rock singer/songwriter, bringing his brand of classic rock/metal to the live stage. Influenced by such bands as Guns N Roses, Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Whitesnake, ZZ Top ect... Tommy has recorded his debut album, Setting Fire To History, with ex Biomechanical frontman John K. Together they entered the studio with 12 demo's and emerged a year later with the album that’s already met fantastic reviews!
Setting Fire To History is the bench mark for Tommy, 12 tracks of all original, hard rockin' music! Big guitars! Gut busting Drums! Pounding Bass and screaming vocals!
When Tommy plays live it's not just four guys on stage playing the music to an audience, this is something else entirely! With Flashing police lights, Sirens, smoke and four guys who don’t know the meaning of 'standing still!
Tommy has put together a team of musicians who he can count on to carry off the songs live and contribute to bringing the best live show around by an unsigned band.
Lead guitarist Steve Wallace could easily give the world’s most notable guitarists a run for their money.. With a BTEC Diploma in Music from Cambridge and a Merit award in Grade 8 Guitar Rockschool, it's safe to say he knows how to play!!
Drummer Steve Clark is in a league of his own. From playing with with Dave Gilmour, The Storm, Heymania, Crawl, Joker, Bushnut, Self Inflicted and The Bet Lynch Experience.
And finally Bass player Richie Scott, an old school friend of TJ. Richie has been in and out of bands with Tommy since they were both 14 sitting in detention’s together, dreaming of one day playing the big stages. Richie has had this bass style compared to the likes of Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) and Rob Trujillo (Metallica) to Lemmy (Motorhead) and Gene Simmons (KISS)
When you see Tommy Justice live you'll realise how much time has gone into rehearsing and perfecting a highly visual live rock show!

Lyrics

Every Inch The Rockstar

Written By: Rich Baldwin

Chorus:
Bow down wile I play my guitar
Coz every inch I’m the rockstar
You say my name I don’t care who you are
Coz every inch I’m the rockstar

Verse 1
Your missing something
There’s a void that needs to be filled deep inside your sole.
It’s all or nothing
You cant afford not to feel subject to self control

Bridge:
That old bad sole in me,
The one that died is living again…living again
Black Thunder calling me, too touch the sky

Chorus:
Bow down wile I play my guitar
Coz every inch I’m the rockstar
You say my name I don’t care who you are
Coz every inch I’m the rockstar

Verse 2
Hey pretty lady
You’re the one I need to meet you right after the show
I’m here to play, no-where to run, yeah
Cupid added 5 strings to my bow

Bridge:
That song inside of you
The one that died, sing it again…sing it again
No one can hide the truth, so testify

Chorus:
Bow down wile I play my guitar
Coz every inch I’m the rockstar
You say my name I don’t care who you are
Coz every inch I’m the rockstar

(Solo)

Bridge:
That song inside of you
The one that died, sing it again…sing it again
No one can hide the truth, so testify

As I lay you down and I take away your breath

There’s a heart on my sleeve, but you know it aint mine
Will you cross your heart and hope to die, swear on your life that you'll never lie to me

I was so misunderstood
But baby.. you were the best I ever had

To death.. To death oh yeah

Open Ride

Written By: Tommy Justice, Mark Squire

Verse 1
Looking for a ride, yeah any kinda ride
The eagles fly, the road's my guide
There's a girl in the other seat
Found her living on the streets
Skin sticking to the leather
Riding outta town together

Verse 2
Got her seat pushed back
And her feet on the dash
(her) Top's pulled down
Flicking off ash
Man, she's something
My blood is pumping
Radiator's burning high, she's ready to fly

Chorus:
Open ride
Put the pedal to the metal til I'm satisfied
Open ride
The roads wide open to the other side
Open ride
Yeah..
Open ride... c'mon… We’re on an Open Ride

Verse 3
Her scent still stains me,
Hiking assassin
We're two young rebels turning up the treble
The roads wide open
Heading out to the ocean
Life's nothing but a rat race, open ride to a better place

Chorus:
Open ride
Put the pedal to the metal til I'm satisfied
Open ride
The roads wide open to the other side
Open ride
Yeah..
Open ride... c'mon… We’re on an Open Ride

Everywhere I Look

Written By: Tommy Justice, Rich Baldwin, Mark Squire

Verse 1
I know I’m not a good man, I’ve done things that were wrong
And this much it seems I cant deny
I've cheated, lied and ran away.. guess I’m not that strong
But its time I make things right.. Because

Chorus:
Everywhere I look.. Everything I see
You'll always mean so much to me
And this feelings killing me inside
The breath I take, The love you give,
The only reason left to live..
And this time I've gotta know I tried

Verse 2
Wish that I could start again, I've got to believe.. When you say
‘A life of loneliness you’ll lead…’
I’ve let down the ones who love me, forever out to deceive
And its not the way I wanna be..

Chorus:
Everywhere I look.. Everything I see
You'll always mean so much to me
And this feelings killing me inside
The breath I take, The love you give,
The only reason left to live..
And this time I've gotta know I tried

And so your glance says..
No more chances
I know the answer's not what I wanna hear..

Everywhere that I look, everything that I see…

And so your glance says..
No more chances
I know the answer's not what I wanna hear..

Chorus:
Everywhere I look.. Everything I see
You'll always mean so much to me
And this feelings killing me inside
The breath I take, The love you give,
The only reason left to live..
And this time I've gotta know I tried

Six Shot Blues

Written By: Tommy Justice, Mark Squire

The train is rolling and its picking up some speed
My journey to no where and she knows just what I need
Release the safety breaks aint gonna back now
Gage up to 90 and lefts blow this fucking town, to the ground

Chorus:
We're coming down you know its true
(come back to you)
Cant stop us now it aint up to you
(the six shot blues)
This is the 6 shot blues and baby.. I’m singing it for you

You'll know my name when its written in the sky
You got your place in life and baby I got mine
I got to get away, the sirens are getting near
I got to get away, break away from out of here

We're coming down you know its true
(come back to you)
Cant stop us now it aint up to you
(the six shot blues)
This is the 6 shot blues and baby.. I’m singing it for you

You live a lie, your living dirty, you can hit me, you cant hurt me, now your 30, and I’m hitting the sky!!

Chorus:
We're coming down you know its true
(come back to you)
Cant stop us now it aint up to you

The Day They Stole The World

Written By: Tommy Justice, Rich Baldwin, Mark Squire

Chorus:
The day that they stole the world
Was the day that they showed the world
They denied us the innocence
You and I have the better sense
Verse 1
Bang bang! Wake up to a shot fired at everyone
Truce hangs! Seems like the ending has just begun

Isolated man your not my brother,
We found a better way to kill each other,
Standing by for a 4 minute warning.. There'll be no time for mourning

Chorus:
The day that they stole the world
Was the day that they showed the world
They denied us the innocence
You and I have the better sense

Verse 2
We thought this planet was ours to have for infinity
If god made man, by god, man made you an enemy

Problem is the liberties of freedom
The lunatics and extremists who lead 'em
All it takes is one day in September.. and forever will remember

Chorus:
The day that they stole the world
Was the day that they showed the world
They denied us the innocence
You and I have the better sense

Verse 3
Some people get a taste for power
And expect the rest of us to cower
All hell bent on a violent existence
I offer up my resistance..

Chorus:
The day that they stole the world
Was the day that they showed the world
They denied us the innocence
You and I have the better sense

Setting fire to history,
Burn it all down down,
Burn it all down down down down

Thrill Seeker

Written By: Tommy Justice, Mark Squire

Verse 1
Here I am, and here we are
Waking up on the wrong side of the tracks
Laying down and holding back
No surprises for me today

After shock to the pierrepoint drop
Riding the waves in the way that I want
Holding back I said hold me back
You let me go there's no turning back

Whoa, my demon searches

Chorus:
Thrill Seeker, I’m a thrill seeker
Running away, I cannot hide
Thrill seeker, I’m a thrill seeker
Crossing over to the other side

Verse 2
It don’t matter it never did
We aint guna bow to society
Feeling tied down and being held up
Too long I’ve been wasting all my time

My best friend died a bitter man
But then again I find that hard to believe
Sitting at home and kidding yourself
Strapping up, and killing yourself

Whoa, my demon searches

Chorus:
Thrill Seeker, I’m a thrill seeker
Running away, I cannot hide
Thrill seeker, I’m a thrill seeker
Crossing over to the other side

(Solo)

Chorus:
Thrill Seeker, I’m a thrill seeker
Running away, I cannot hide
Thrill seeker, I’m a thrill seeker
Crossing over to the other side

If I Could Change

Written By: Tommy Justice, Rich Baldwin, Mark Squire

Verse 1
I see your face, in the rear view mirror
looking at me, as I speed away
I still remember, your last words to me
You said ‘I love you, will you please stay…’

Chorus:
Forget about me, coz now I’m gone for good
I ran away, and left where you stood
Be a man, I know I should
If I could change, believe me I would
If I could change

Verse 2
Packed up my suitcase, walked out the door
You grabbed my hand and held on to me
This time I’ve really let you down
Couldn't be the man you needed me to be..

Chorus:
Forget about me, coz now I’m gone for good
I ran away, and left where you stood
Be a man, I know I should
If I could change, believe me I would
If I could change

Verse 3
I wasn’t there when you blew out your candles
I didn't pick up the phone..
Why on earth did you put up with me
You were the glass and I was the stone..
But I was there when you came into this world.. such a perfect day
I’ll never forget your last words to me 'I love you please will you stay'
I’m caught in a fantasy of how my life should be,
But now I’m too blind to see, my calendar lies to me

Chorus:
Forget about me, coz now I’m gone for good
I ran away, and left where you stood
Be a man, I know I should
If I could change, believe me I would
If I could change

Take It All Away

Written By: Tommy Justice, Mark Squire

Verse 1
Look into my eyes, tell me what you see
Twisted madness is staring back at me
Flying over night, somewhere out of sight
Touching break of day, calling you his way

Chorus:
I see nothing that I want can't take it all away
Not at all in no where, to show you gratitude
Time has come to make a change, do not apologise
I can't help you no more and so.. take it all away

Verse 2
Through the innocence, in the woods I go
Time begins to stop, where? I do not know
How do you see me, how do I see you
Step into the past, all along I knew

Chorus:
I see nothing that I want can't take it all away
Not at all in no where, to show you gratitude
Time has come to make a change, do not apologise
I can't help you no more and so.. take it all away
