about

"...wonderfully strident vocals by Norman in the vein of Pete Shelley of Buzzcocks or Feargal Sharkey from the Undertones... It's as much punk as it is power pop as it is straight-up shoulder-to-the-boulder rock 'n' roll." -Mitchell Hillman, Phoenix New Times

Track Name: Southwestern Feel
I feel so, Unworthy
Like I'm the one you use to know
I feel it, Inside me
Breaking all against my stone walls
I'll go on, Becoming
The one to tear them all apart
I wanna, Be the one to
Take light and shine it on the dark!

-Oh, I need to know
Oh, I need to see
Oh, I need to feel
Something that's real inside now
Oh, I need to heal
Oh, So far away
Oh, I need to know
Something more than I use to know---Go!

I feel like, Unwanted
Like I'm a child born of fear
I'm going, Up into
The place I was born to reconstruct
I wanna, be the man to,
Stand by you side by side by side
I wanna, be the one to,
Convince this dying world to live


-Oh, I need to know
Oh, I need to see
Oh, I need to feel
Something that's real inside
Oh, I need to heal
Oh, I need to feel
Oh, I need to know
Something more than I use to know

-Oh, I need to go
Oh, I need to see
Oh, I need to feel
Something that's really real GO
Oh, I need to heal
Oh, so far away
Oh, I need to know
Something more than I use to KNOW!
Track Name: Here I Stand
Something happened inside my head
to make me feel, inadequate, alone again
inside my head
and I know I need to make a change
Or else these feelings deep inside,
They will take over me

-Here I stand I find myself a
brand new world and all that I see
is a shining city full of my memories

I saw the signs that show me true
The world before my very eyes, this disguise
Inside my head!
I know this world INSIDE MY brain is different
From the one we're living in, taking over
inside my head again!

-Here I stand I find myself a
brand new world and all that I see
is a shining city full of my memories
Track Name: Pressure
Say what you need to say and then walk away
You're gonna make it through all of this bull****
Don't want to hear that passive aggressive
You got something to say?---You better say it!

Everybody knows---the pressure's on...
Everybody sees---the pressure's on
Take what's in your soul---the pressure's on
Everybody goes---The pressure's on the pressure's on
And then we go...

Everything you see in life is just a mirage
You think you're getting through that's not real now
You gotta make it what you always wanted
You've got somewhere be? You better go there

Everybody knows---the pressure's on...
Everybody sees---the pressure's on
Take what's in your soul---the pressure's on
Everybody goes---The pressure's on the pressure's on
And then we go...
Track Name: Old Man Blues and the Cyber Punk Kid
You find yourself out, lying
Out there down by the dumpster
You're stuck with all the trash and
You don't know if you can...
You use to be somebody, You use to know something,
So show me who you are...

You got to get up and show me
You use to know something there
You go all around here
Living up your trick bag
and now you've got to stand up
You definitely know
So won't you show me?

-Hey show me the way of the Old Blues
Hey show me the way, You old man
Hey show me the way you use to know
Way back when!

So now here it is the time for you to get up
You've got to be up here now,
you've got to show me something,
You use to know something...
You use to be somebody!
Show, Me, Who, You, ARE!


-Hey show me the way of the Old Blues
Hey show me the way, You old man
Hey show me the way you use to know
Way back when! ( you gotta show me now... )
-Hey show me the way of the Old Blues
Hey show me the way, You old man
Hey show me the way I need to know
I need to feel, I need to feel it now....

Hey...old man, can't you keep up?
With the times now, we are all waiting on you
Hey, you old man, can't you keep up
with these punk kids?
Now is your chance
SHOW ME THE WAY!

-Hey show me the way of the Old Blues
Hey show me the way, You old man
Hey show me the way you use to know
Way back when! ( you gotta tell me now )
-Hey show me the way of the Old Blues
Hey show me the way, You old man
Hey show me the way I feel it
Give me more, give me something now
Show me who we are
Track Name: Windowshopper
Say what's on your mind
Even if the words, they're so unkind
Stay a while and find,
all of those things that you left behind

Window shoppin' is easy, when you don't want anything
And I'm not saying its breezy but you make it hard on me
You cannot just walk around like you own everything
Like you're some queen who takes whatever she wants

So take all of those stupid things you've built up in your mind
Throw them out the window babe they don't belong

Make up your mind, You will find where you belong
Make up your mind And everything will be easier

Say what's on your mind
Even if the words are a little unkind
Stay a while and find
All of those things you left behind

Window shopping is easy when you don't want anything
And I'm not saying its breezy but you make it hard on me
You leave all the world in a state of disrepair
You do not seem to care about what you destroy

So take all of those callow things you build up in your heart
Throw them out the window baby, They don't belong

Make up your mind, you will find where you belong
Make up your mind and everything will be easier

Say what's on your mind
Even if the words they're so unkind
Stay a while and find
All of those things you left behind

Windowshoppin is easy when you don't want anything
And I'm not sayin its breezy but you, you make it hard on me
You are walking around here looking through the window panes
You're shopping at the prices and breaking all the hearts

Take all of those stupid things that built up in your mind
Throw it out the window,
It don't belong!

Make up your mind, you will find where you belong
Make up your mind and everything will be easier!
Track Name: My Disdain
This world is scary But I am not afraid of
Anything that it has to offer
I will never, I will never flee from
Something that I need to take in

Everyone look around you're living like a liar
Everyone take a bow find a brand new buyer
Everyone look around this is my disgrace
Everybody take a look I'll show you my disdain

This worlds on fire but it can never burn me
I don't know if I can make it through this
The fires burning all around me
and I don't know, I don't know who I am

Everyone look around you're living like a liar
Everyone take a bow find a brand new buyer
Everyone look around this is my disgrace
Everybody take a look I'll show you my disdain

Run away, from who you are
Feel the shame, Living the lie again
Everyone, You know is gone again
Feel the shame; My Disdain!

Run away, from who you are
Feel the shame, Living the lie again
Everyone, You know is gone again
Feel the shame; My Disdain!

Everyone look around you're living like a liar
Everyone take a bow find a brand new buyer
Everyone look around this is my disgrace
Everybody take a look I'll show you my disdain
Track Name: The Shutdown
I'm trying to figure out, what I should do about you
You're acting like a fool, here and there and everywhere
You're attitude towards all of my own endeavors
You're trying to take me out,
BUT I WILL NOT GO, NO, NO, NO!

And so we've made it through all that you've put us to
We're acting like we're alone but we are surrounded by the
Ones who will keep us up despite the problems out there
You're trying to make us pay? Well,
WE DON'T OWE YOU A GODDAMN THING

And so we're standing here, One nation standing together
United by the cause for which we FIGHT, For now!
You act like we're alone but we are a powerful nation
You're trying to shut it down? But
WE WILL NOT DIE, NO, NO, NO! NO!
Track Name: Disillusion
Small moments are laced in hesitation
I know we'll find our nation
I know we'll find what we've got
Within those things that we've wrought
Standing here on the edge of a drop off
Staring into the void that stares back
I know we'll find our courage
Within those things that we regret

Is this real or is this a dream?
Should I stand up, should I scream?
Here I know I'll find myself alone in all of my fears
Track Name: Burden
It's a strange little feeling and it makes you sick
Walking alone, but not too quick
and you're falling, yes you're falling down
and you're falling, and you're so high up

It's an empty feeling that builds in you
And you can't avoid and you know its true
I'm sorry, but I'm going down
And I'm sorry, but it's hurting me

You think its over but it's just begun
and you fall in the river, deep down dark
And the pressure, is sinking you
And the pressure, is drowning you

You hear a call but it's not for you
And you're on the edge but you're not quite due
And I'm sorry, to my friends and family
And I'm sorry, but I'm going down

-Promise me that you're done with this
Promise me that you're through for now
You will see another day
Won't you see a better day?
Me friend...


Day by day, nothing's new
And its all the same and its afflicting you
I'm sorry but the problem is I'm going so far down

Everything is crushing you
like a rock of burden that you can't dig through
And the pressure, its crushing me
And the pressure, It's KILLIN ME

Promise me, you're through with this
Promise Me, you're done for now
You will see another day,
Won't you see a better way?
Promise me, You're done with this
Promise me, You're through for now
You will see another day,
Won't you see another day my friend?

You're stuck inside a ship that's sinking on you way too fast
You think it's over, but take my hand and...
You're stuck inside a room that's getting way too small for you
You think it's over, but take my hand my friend!!!
Track Name: Hope As A Feather
I'm going as far as I can go now
Whole desert stretches out before me
I'm battered beaten up and bruised but I'll still find my way

This world is covered up in darkness
But if you think you'll make it through it
I'm gonna find those things that I could never have

Lay your little spirit low
It doesn't mean much more
God doesn't need to know
All of the pain that's in your heart
Keep you're little head up high
It doesn't mean much more or
Matter how used you are
You're everything you were and to come!

This world has give it's exclamation
And I find faulty information
Gives me a driving inclination
To find what I never knew

Hope is a fragile little thing but
If you will hold it in your tiny hands
Don't crush it, never let it go,
It'll blow right in the wind


Lay your little spirit low
It doesn't mean much more
God doesn't need to know
All of the pain that's in your heart
Keep you're little head up high
It doesn't mean much more or
Matter how used you are
You're everything you were and to come!

GO!~


Lay your little spirit low
It doesn't mean much more
God doesn't need to know
All of the pain that's in your heart
Keep you're little head up high
It doesn't mean much more or
Matter how used you are
You're everything you were and to come!
