Deryn L. Imagine that blues, funk, punk, and noise rock got caught in a massive nuclear industrial accident, and out emerged a behemoth of furious sound, passion, and infectious guitar licks. That's probably Sonic Graffiti summed up conservatively, and that's the only thing conservative about 'em.
Absolutely superb stuff, I wish nothing but the best for them. Favorite track: Her Love Stops Atom Bombs.

Shannon B. Insane vocals and controlled chaos. Live, recorded, drunk, sober, no matter the case, this band rules and I will not hesitate to engage in physical combat with anyone who disagrees with me. Favorite track: Whiskey Punch No Love Sucka.

Track Name: The Morning Electric
Woke up to the morning electric
Everything around me was hectic
I ain't got no shelter to go
There's Juliet but no Romeo

I'm part of planned Obsolescence
Maybe cuz I never learned my lessions
Baby says she got the truth
listen honey gonna need some proof

The only time that I'm looking up
Is when I'm on my back
Sometimes I see chance light up
But it always fades to black
Track Name: Head in the Clouds
I go walking alone on the street
I get excited every time we meet
My mind is racing and I can't sleep for weeks
When she bite my tongue you know I just can't speak

Singing oh my girl and it ain't no fun
I throw my thoughts then ride up the sun
it's just my blues and I'm screaming out loud
I can still walk proud with my head in the clouds

When I fall down I think it's the drugs
then I get up and I feel a tug
I'm all black and blue and I don't know why
I'm so lonely I wouldn't mind to die

You say you love me, but that's a lie
I know you judge me, I can see in your eyes
but the dog days are over and you can't stop me
Gonna do what I want and set myself free
Track Name: Whiskey Punch No Love Sucka
I'm a mover and a shaker
A hopeless romantic and a real heart breaker
I'm a lover and a fighter, I'm good at being bad
I'm a crazy mother fucker but sometimes
I get whiskey punched no loved suckered

you throw away my affection
now what do you wanna do
I got a lil intuition
I'll tear you off like my heart tattoo

I appear like an apparition
then I'm gone in a flash
I don't need your permission
I'll make my own romance

I won't take no lying lovers
to me it's just another scrapped knee
I won't leave my feelings under cover
you won't get no apology
Track Name: Scribbles
snorting white lines and drinking hard liquor
I'm getting fucked up for my dinner
walk in mama say "you looking thinner"
I say mama "I feel like a winner"

things in my life that I dropped
it's too late now, I won't stop

Writing scribbles on the back of my hand
I don't give a damn if you don't understand
what I am is what I am
so roll the dice and fuck the plan

I'm a weirdo, I'm a creep
I'm my own leader and my own sheep
your two cents don't buy much, enough for me ain't ever enough
Track Name: At Voodoo City
The sun is shining from the big hot sky
I feel so low while I'm getting so high
A lotta things around here got me asking why
How I'm still here when I should have died
It's a miracle on my doorstep
A bottle of wine and a cigarette

Down down to the city I know
It's the same type of people and their same instructions
but it's just me and my self destruction

Got a lot of heartache and broken dreams
so I drifted on down to New Orleans
Saw a lotta things I'd never think to see
but I got my crew all behind me
11th hour coming and it ain't no surprise
Can't see too good from my bloodshot eyes

Got a funny feeling sticking in my bones
Something telling me that I'm not alone
The people that I see just wanna fight fight fight
but I'm just rambling hoping for light
Track Name: Flash of God
I gave my last dollar to a homeless man on the corner of Michigan and Monroe. All he had was a sign that said he had nothing but for us to understand and let it go. So i poured my quarters into his paper cup he said thank you and never looked up. He kept talking and I kept walking and to this very day I wish I had stopped just to see what he was saying because when I walked away he started praying.
Track Name: Victoria
I'm down on myself all the time
but believe me I feel fine
My enemies are my teachers
my addictions are my righteous preachers
I drink too much, my soul swirls
but I'll get on without my girl
My tears dry and so does my blood
and when it rains I make it flood

What kind of fuckery is this
I search my soul but look at all that I miss
and I'm in such and awful state
but now I feel great

She's in love with her ex man
She don't understand that I understand
She say's "I'm crazy" more than she "love's me"
But that's okay because she can never phase me
She don't know me and she never will
Victoria giving me all the chills
She's kind of selfish, kind of lame
Some how I love her all the same
That girl I met never made me feel full
I like to punish myself, punish my soul

What kind of fuckery is this
I try my best but look at all that I miss
And I'm in such an awful state
but now I feel great

She says I'm her favorite but it's all talk
Take me to bed then I go for a walk
She don't cherish all the little things I do
I feel so lonely making love to you
You take for granted all that I am
You telling people but we both know
I'm not your man
Track Name: In Chicago
Time is a storm and its moving fast
A lot of my friends aint gonna last
one of these days and it won't be long
going back to the city gonna sing my song

some may say its madness but thats not really true
It's just a lil song I sing when I'm feeling blue
Something no one can understand its just between me and you
and every time I fall back down I get up to make it through

Eclipsed by the skyline every night
the fear of fear takes away my fright
learning to surrender is now winning the fight
my fever dreams gonna steal my nights
Track Name: Never Mind Valley
Love makes me drink and gamble, stay out all night long. I should have learned from Billie's heartache I know that she's never wrong. But I'm a liar, I'm a cheat I'm doing things now I could have never believed. Wake up with the morning sun with a whole lotta things I wish I never done. My city is a never mind valley everybody's hurting everyone. It's a pity the people can't rally, sorry love it's no longer fun

Get on the bus it's 3:05, I'll come back one day when I feel alive
Tell me honey that I'll be fine, gonna disappear on 275

Walk in with a bottle of whiskey everyone says that I'm way pass tipsy. They say "drew you got a problem" I don't wanna hear it if you ain't gonna solve them. Because I'm a fuck up, I ain't shit, oh my tongue I wish I bit. I love you, you don't want me, I shouldn't care so why am I crying. i don't need anybody but everyone so I keep trying, feel so suicidal, love's a war and I don't mind dieing
Track Name: Insomniac Dreams
I wanna stay out all night long
They wanna go to sleep right now

I don't care if it's your mother, brother, daddy, sister or anyone in between
Don't care about your lovers undercover or give a damn about your dreams
Track Name: Mess At Best
Sweats burning in my eyes
and I guess that it's no surprise
from walking on the sun
I'm gonna dust my broom and run
But I'm a mess at best
And it's always such a rage
A test for the blessed
living in the static age
I'm a fanatical radical
who slipped down through the cracks
they want me to bite the dust
but I'm already on my back
Their words are like bullets
Like drunk crashing gods
how can I see through it
and beat these odds
Track Name: Her Love Stops Atom Bombs
Look over yonder
what do you see
I used to wander
little girl got a hold on me

I run into battle
and repent my sins
my hands start to rattle
don't know if I can win

Nobody can cut me in half
because her love stops atom bombs

The sun is rising
across the open field
she saved me from dieing
her love is my shield
Track Name: Alchemist Blues
i got no more time left for you or anyone
dying will be easy when i'm done
I don't want no trouble just leave me alone
Track Name: Here Goes Nothing
It's all in my head
what they said
time and again
but I'm not like them
I talk too much
I don't say enough
what ever I touch
always comes out so rough

I'm a misfit too
Just like you
Holiday in my head and my soul unscrewed
Leave me alone
Everything is fine
Lie to myself and I'll believe it in time

see you and I wanna die
See you and I feel like the devil now

Me and my world
I'd give it all away
Feels like a blur and she won't stay
I got nothing to prove except to myself
won't listen to you or nobody else

I got skeletons in the closet don't you know
they follow me where ever I go
and all my friends are so different but i never change
A sign of the times or I'm insane
And I see the future burning in your eyes
realized that its no surprise
I gotta get to where I need to go
but I don't know
And I would rather live in dreams than take things for how they seem
I think I'll invent my own way to live for once
