Feels weird the wind's the way There's nothing here but a hole The full moon sways Then it burns away On a whim the wind's the way I know where it all went wrong Here lives the washed away The lone the ones we had are gone How we get along The way that we come The way no bills to pay no love Even though they say leave it alone I'm a try to reach you If it's the last thing I done These days don't swing the days don't swing But that don't mean anything Don't know where I lost the trail Love fell like bright shiny pieces Of dust in the sun I'm a try to reach you And I got a gun And I'm a try to teach you The mean end of the sun They can't teach the wicked ways And love you all the time But that don't mean that it swings Or that it's got feeling anymore There's no feeling anymore
Cleanse my feet with warm dry sand Give me something to believe in Any way that I can Help in bringing peace to the land And help me give it up for the man o man Run through wildernesses In the sun and the rain Seen stalks a slapping out back In lonely brakes of cane Beat down every path Down every lane Saw it on tv but it Was not the same No one can hear you now The screaming from the angry Cloud's/crowd's too loud
Wolves 03:40
She don't wanna know She can't even say That her wings aren't arms That need clear plans to play And the wolves in the back Clear blows the cold And the wolves aren't crying And we know it's the way And the weeds Are rolling Over the sand We don't know the way We don't own the day We don't know the way We don't know the way She went and lost the day She went off like a bomb In the woods in the town down the Hall in the back rooms playin When we don't get along We need a song to sing She don't buy it at all In the farm ways The streets say Free them from thinking We don't know the way We don't own the day....
Several times they pitch me In the Mississippi And I keep coming up Nashville women try to kiss me Then try to kick me But I keep playing it tough Hey Ma bought a Plymouth with wings It cost a lot But money don't mean a thing Killers of cowboys ... Everyttime they run me down I keep hiding out underground Til I can't see anyone Spend my lazy days in Daisy chains wet with remembered rain Til I forget the sun Hey Ma bought a Plymouth with wings It cost a lot but money Don't mean a thing Killers of cowboys ....
Lemon Boats 03:44
Queen Mary 04:45
Ketamine 05:06

The Revel Switch New York, New York

The Revel Switch is an indie alt rock hillbilly shoegaze band from New York. Nice melodies meet occasional cacophonous ends with an almost imperceptible haze of twang hanging about like smoke ... in an old bar somewhere out in the middle of no place. Rich Meyer on bass and vocals, John Epperly on drums, Justin Greville on drums and piano and Alex Miller on vocals and Gtr and keys ... more
