At last, I have found a copy of their songs over the internet (Christmas gift in disguise! ). This is my all-time favorite band back in my late highschool and early college days until unfortunately I lost my cassette tape of their album “Greatest Hits?”(twas' an original copy, ;-D ). I can remember a friend borrowing it from me and was never returned (can't blame the guy, he must've extremely liked it!). Anyways this band was of punk influence and their lyrics directed to a wasted, pissed lifestyle of a typical punk idividual( in my own humble opinion ).
The reason why I liked this band so much is that it seems to me that their whole album consists of songs about which reflects on my real situation in life. Well it would a coincidence or maybe theres some scientific explanation about how i felt toward their songs. Also I admit that I lived a punk life back in the days, not just on the looks side but on the know-how, ideology, lifestyle, dogma, attitude etc., so this might be a big influence on how I see their songs. Or could it be that the composer of the songs experience similar kind of life that I live (possibility 1%).
Anyways, just to share about their music I will site excerpts of the lyrics of some of their songs. I will also try my best to explain how I see it, hehe. Please take note on the word “try”!
They took the Sun Away – this song tackles about false friendship and his efforts to make friends despite the fact that he know he can never have real ones.
“ My Friends are gonna stay because I paid them yesterday. What can I say? For me this is the only way. I tried to make some real ones but I dont think they like me. For me its only rainy days ”
Tell Me Why – a song about a girlfriend who just used him and didnt even cared at all.
“ You only call me when you need to go home. When its late at night and no one wants to do it but me! We used to talk and smoke a lot together and I thought things we're just alright. ”
” Tell me why i am so stupid when I know you never cared! ”
Slowly Dying – all about hatred to someone/something.
“ I am living in a city, where no one else can see me by the time I say goodbye ”
This are just some of the lines that I consider to have personally experienced and constantly/continuously experiencing.
Anyways enough of the crap about my life in relation to the music. I know why you came accross and read my blog its because you want to hear my favorite band, ex-president combo, rocking!
