Biography

worseforwear was originally formed in mid 2005 with nic larosa on drums, and funk(gary shawver) on guitar. we continued to practice and write songs without much sucess in finding a bassist. after losing our practice space, wfw kinda fell to the wayside. finally in late 2006 mark kosman-bass, fell into place and we hit our songs with a vengance. wfw is an originall band. and unfortunately in this town you gotta play the cover bar scene to "make it". we refuse to let that become are reality. we will throw some covers in to make a show( in fact we will do whatever it takes to play) still our main and only goal is to create what we believe to be kickass rock and roll. we are always looking for shows to play. basically we are in our infancy as a band, and are constantly writing songs to hopefully put out a pressed ep by summer 2007. so stay tuned, and if you're in the area check us out live, cuz its way more intense liveinspired by Nirvana, alice in chains, foo fighters, and most early 90's grunge/rock and the passion expressed in the music. what seperates us from music today we dont try to be part of the music scene. We just do what we feel and what we play is what comes out.

Lyrics

again

Written By: Gary "funk" Shawver

your words are set in cement. I know what you said but don't know what you meant. You didn't make it easy to forget. Another picture off the wall, I cannot see but I still recall. When you left you didn't take it all.

Once again you did it to me
Once again you see right through me
This little game you play has built up suspense
Last time you looked into me
Last time you begged me to be
Just when I thought it would end you did it again

Stuck in this fatal circumstance, you play fate by happenstance. Do you remember the last time you took a chance? Run the numbers play it safe. when you realize it's to late, there's a part of the equation you didn't calculate.

Once again you did it to me
Once again you see right through me
This little game you play has built up suspense
Last time you looked into me
Last time you begged me to be
Just when I thought it would end you did it again

and again (repeat)

for what it's worth

Written By: gary "funk" shawver

you are not me, and i am not you
you got something to say
your words dont ring true
so look me in the face and tell me no lies
this aint the time or place
no room for comprimise

cuz i can't take it anymore
i can't fake it anymore
i can't make you anymore
i can't take it anymore

your lips are moving
your sayin nothin at all
you try to push me down, but i'm still standing tall

so look me in the face and give up your lies
this aint the time or place no room for comprimise

(repeat chorus)

something's gonna break

Written By: gary"funk" shawver

twist the knife a little deeper
blood runs thicker than water
take a rest now that the day is done
when the choice comes where does alliegance run
a chill is setting feels like autum
the dying process starts out slow
i cant pretend not to notice
this change will surely show

and i feel so numb
and i feel so dumb
and i feel like i cant feel anymore, to show emotion is a chore
i cant fake what i'm feeling cuz i'm feeling like a fake and it's more than i can take cuz i know somethin's gonna break

slowly crawling on the inside
scratch the surface of the skin
water dripping from the faucet
drown the fire that's within
how long before they notice
hide the secrets on the stage
torn between two lovers
another tear stain on the page

chorus:

bridge: don't wanna think about it anymore
i've forgotten what i'm fighting for
don't wanna think about it anymore
i've forgotten what i'm fighting for
don't wanna fight
dont wanna give in
dont wanna die
dont wanna live in
dont wanna go on living in this lie

repeat chorus
