Mother Earth is Sick

by Those Hounds

Bucky Poppy punk rock laced with enough fuzzy groove to induce a serious case of headbobititus. Bridging the gap of stoner and grunge rock the indie-punk vocal soarage carried by catchy leads will have you molesting the repeat button. I'm a sucker for these 2 and 3-piece bands who are able to construct such an inticing melody with minimal help from other members. Favorite track: Black Cloud.

Track Name: The Ghost
there's a ghost inside my head
there's a ghost inside my head (its true)
there's a devil in my mirror
i see his face, now its clear (its me)

(hey)
yeah I'm the fool
(hey)
i'm the devil in you

a thousand thoughts run through my head
a thousand thoughts run through my head (its true)
i never thought i'd end up here
the fog is thick
what's left is dear to me (to me)

(hey)
yeah I'm the fool
(hey)
I'm the devil in you

now I'm gonna bring this ghost down
or I'm gonna lay in this ground
now I'm gonna bring this ghost down
(lay in this ground)

(hey)
yeah I'm the fool
(hey)
i'm the devil in you
Track Name: Collider
we live at the bottom of the ocean
the pressure,
is so heavy
they live at the top of the mountain
the air,
is so thin

it doesn't matter
what side you're on
we are working
to meet in the middle, again

its all colliding
instead of pulling apart.
Track Name: The Bottom
for so long i've tried to erase
every silhouette
everything is beyond control
twenty two years
has taken its toll

im the black cat
wolf among the sheep
there's some things you shouldn't keep

you all own a piece of my head
won't you give it back to me instead?

(has taken its toll)

can we go back and wipe the slate
start again?
another drink for my mind
at the bottom

im the black cat
wolf among the sheep
there's some things you shouldn't keep

you all own a piece of my head
won't you give it back to me instead?

at the bottom
looking up
(at the bottom)

you all own a piece of my head
won't you give it back to me instead?
Track Name: Thunder Overhead
today was the day
the earth had died
fell into the sun
and no one cried
except for the moon
who shed a single tear
for it would be lonely
with no one near

(can you feel it?)
(did you feel it?)

you tried to sound like thunder overhead
but they all grew tired of waiting for you

today was the day
that you got to see
the halt of it all for you and me
the cycle goes on,
again and again
till the tape reaches it's end

(can you feel it?)
(did you feel it?)

you tried to sound like thunder overhead
but they all grew tired of waiting for you

i watched time go down the drain.
Track Name: Black Cloud
i watched a silence come over you
those four walls were deafening
blank stares
pale faces
i was near, my mind so far (away)

there's a black cloud here
an image in my eye
you see the black cloud here
now it's in your eye

a room of faces painted black
a certain numbness in their tone
i knew i'd see it in due time
a wash of cold
a wash of calm

theres a black cloud here
an image in my eye
you see the black cloud here
now its in your eye

now its in your eyes
Track Name: Man of Stone
man of stone he don't move
man of stone he don't change

trees rise and trees fall
man of stone, he stays the same

man of stone is sinking now
to the bottom of the well
(well well)

they all watched,
and they'll never tell
Track Name: Fire Tongue
these are the words that broke the levy
these are the words that brought the rain to us
(here)

im never meant a thing i've said

the words on the tip of my tongue
aren't the same as the ones falling out of my head

if its true that silence is golden
then maybe im the richest one around
(here)

I've never said a thing I've meant

the words on the tip of my tongue
aren't the same as the one falling out of my head

my mouth is filled with gasoline
Track Name: Rats
mother earth is sick,
and so am i
in this chair i sit,
wondering why

i deserve every bit of hell that comes my way

wandering like rat stuck in a maze
its a dead end now
(stuck in a daze)

i deserve every bit of hell that come my way

do you see?
nothing matters, it doesn't matter.
we will be forever watching, always waiting
do you see?
nothing matters

i deserve every bit of hell that comes my way
(i deserve every bit)
