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.

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
2.
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
3.
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

Scribbles 02:51
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
5.
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
6.
Flash of God 01:35
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.
7.
Victoria 02:54
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

In Chicago 04:08
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
9.
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

Dead Cop Dub 01:10

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
12.
Mess At Best 04:59
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
13.
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
14.
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
15.
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
