Lyrics

Cold

Written By: J. Dunn/M. Dunn

I take a walk outside, and I step into the road, and then I wander to the other side, where the rest of it unfolds, I hold my finger to the weather, but you know it's always cold, I try to keep my thoughts together, but it hurts right in my soul, soul, soul, soul, soul, why do you have to be so cold? why do you have to be so cold? why can't you do what you are told? why do you have to be so cold? I see the bums they stand in line, and they scream at me "so what?" (so what?), I try my best to put up a fight, they get mad and start to cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, can I put it in a letter? can I put it to you right? or should I put it in a love song? sing it for you tonight, alright, alright, why do you have to be so cold? why do you have to be so cold? while life around you all unfolds, why do you have to be so cold? oh yeah, oh yeah, everybody wants to make the grade, (alright, alright, alright-oh), and everybody wants a great escape, (alright, alright, alright-oh), and everybody wants to take the cake, (alright, alright, alright-oh), but everybody hides their worst mistakes, (alright, alright), why do you have to be so cold? why do you have to be so cold? the future caters to the bold, why do you have to be so cold? yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Ca Plane Moi (Avec Fries)

Written By: J. Dunn/M. Dunn

ca plane moi (avec fries), ca plane moi (avec fries), ca plane moi (avec fries), ca plane moi (avec fries), don't you know? (don't you know?), can't you see?

2 Lady Massacre

Written By: J. Dunn/M. Dunn

rest your head, and know that i protect, the one who lays, right with the wreck, i see your dreams, in movements of the face, the stillness grows, but sound betrays, yeah i know what's right, yeah i won't put up a fight, but things are a little to complex now, for me to raise it and bring it down, raise it and bring it down, raise it and bring it down, yeah it's the fear, that tears in half the night, a single scream will testify, it drags me through, that horror-filled gate, where all is blown, and desolate, yeah i know what's right, yeah i won't put up a fight, but things are a little too complex now, for me to raise it and bring it down, raise it and bring it down, raise it and bring it down, i run 'round the house, and head into the back, i get the job done, then hit the sack, i feel my way, my hammer in tow, prepare myself, for the final blow, yeah i feel alright, like something hit me tonight, and i feel like a new-born man, but will i ever see your smile again? will i ever see your smile again? will i ever see your smile again?

Opening sets are typically 20-minute high-energy affairs.

Headlining sets are typically 26-minute high-energy affairs...with one or two beautifully melancholic songs thrown in for good measure.

Sometimes we like to cover David Bowie songs.
