Vaudeville Freud

 Cincinnati, Ohio, USA

We sound like the Dirtyness of Tom Waits, with the Soul of James Brown, Rock like Nirvana, and Roll like Led Zepplin, mind of a Mad Man, and the pop sense to bring it all together in a fashion that lodges itself in your head and stays there.

Lyrics

Living with Telemarketers

Written By: Paul O'Moore

I saw the moon once or twice today
Subtle white with a shade of grey
Its such a strange occurance when the moon comes out in day
The sun may try to battle him but its better off that way
Because if the sky's were empty what would the people say
About the things that lie ahead when they describe a better place?

So I walk two blocks
To a place where I dream about my day
I know I'm going nowhere fast
But I still wait for a day
When I can be on my way
I don't think that it's too much to ask

So so so

So just grant me this simple wish
I never thought it would come to this
I just don't want to live that way again

And if I can get right out of this
I'll slip and fall in to the Midst
Of those who really live their lives this way
Yeah I'll say

I saw a squirrel once or twice today
Beautiful in every single way
Its such a strange occurance when the squirrel comes out to play
The fox may soon devour them but they still go about their day
Because if they lived in fear of what may be on the way
then that would be no life at all just taking it day by day

So as I sit down in a place
Where I dream about my day
I know I'm going nowhere fast
but I still wait for a day
when I can be on my way
I don't care if its too much to ask

So so so

So just grant me this simple wish
I never thought it would come to this
I just don't want to live that way again

And if I can get right out of this
Ill slip and fall into the midst
Of those who really live their lives this way
Yeah Ill say

Barkin' Up the Wrong Tree

Written By: Paul O'Moore

You'd better stop you dirty dog barking up that tree
You better stop your antics and your misery
You better stop you dirty dog
You'd better stop you dirty dog

Now you walk around town with your false sense of pride
You take no look at yourself but still shit on everyones life
You walk around talking like you know the reasons why
But you don't know nothing about that, so now you must die

You better stop you dirty dog
You'd better stop you dirty dog
You better stop what you're doing because you're barkin' up the wrong tree

(Scat Break)

Now there ain't no place around here for you no more
The crowd has decided quite frankly you're a bore
Now I don't care what you do when you leave this place
I don't even know how I didn't see your face
I don't care if you fall in to the ground
And die and die and die and die and die and die and die and die

And you

Better stop you dirty dog barking up that tree
You better stop your antics and your misery
You better stop you dirty dog
You'd better stop you dirty dog
You better stop what your doing because your barking up the wrong tree

Attention central nervous system
This is your brain speaking
Although it may come as a shock
Stop

Your catatonic state
Is interrupting everything
And I think I have had enough
Stop

Disassembly begins at the spinal cord
You will probably feel it creep down your back
Stop

Send an impulse to the dendrites
Shut off all the synapse receptors
This is your brain fighting yourself

Oh

Always be your fool
But I got a trick up my sleeve
That will make you drool
I said I'll always be your fool
But I got a trick up my sleeve
That will make you drool
I said oh oh oh oh oh

Be prepared to endure countless hordes of neurons
sent to interrupt your daily life
Stop

I'll start with somatic
You're paralyzed you can't even open up your eyes now
Stop

Autonomic's next your breathing slows as we progress
Your heart skips a beat now
Stop

Dot dash dash dot dash dot dash dot
Dot dash dash dot dash dot dash dot
Dot dash dash dot dash dot dash dot
Dot dash dash dot dash dot dash dot

Always be your fool
But I got a trick up my sleeve
That will make you drool
I said I'll always be your fool
But I got a trick up my sleeve
That will make you drool
I said oh oh oh oh oh

This telegram has been sent to inform you
Of my intent to destroy your life
Stop

Expect no pity I know that life is shitty
But that is no excuse to act this way
Stop

Attention central nervous system
This is your brain speaking
Although it may come as a shock
Stop

Your catatonic state
Is interrupting everything
And I think I have had enough
Stop

Disassembly begins at the spinal cord
You will probably feel it creep down your back
Stop

Send an impulse to the dendrites
Shut off all the synapse receptors
This is your brain fighting yourself

Oh

Always be your fool
But I got a trick up my sleeve
That will make you drool
I said I'll always be your fool
But I got a trick up my sleeve
That will make you drool
I said oh oh oh oh oh

Be prepared to endure countless hordes of neurons
sent to interrupt your daily life
Stop

I'll start with somatic
You're paralyzed you can't even open up your eyes now
Stop

Autonomic's next your breathing slows as we progress
Your heart skips a beat now
Stop

Motown Glasses

Written By: Paul O'Moore

I cant see with my own eyes
Yeah I swear that its true
Stop signs they always wreck my mind
With their deep purple hue
Yeah I still walk alone sometimes
Just to get a better view

And I walk alone
Yeah I walk alone
Yeah I walk alone
Just to see

Now things they always come and go
My other she told me so
Now I've been blind so very long
Even while I write this song

I take a look at myself
Yeah I take a look at myself
I take a look at myself
And I see

That you're a part of me

Now I've spent to long with this chip on my shoulder
Wasting my time just growing older
Now I think its time for a change in my life
Yeah I think its time for a change in my life
I just can't go on living
The way that I have been
