Gone to LA. 04:22
Bill East What happened to you? Since they took you out From the, petting zoo Bill East You still like to hang With your friends from, bigger bands You had the guitar but didn't have the luck It wasn't your fault I tried to tell you but you were gone Gone to LA. Bill East You came in too close But it wasn't enough and it wasn't your fault But, Bill East You are one of us we all like the fire, but wood.. Burns really fast You had the guitar and you had the soul it wasn't your fault I tried to tell you but you were gone gone to LA. And I'm not going to at your grave to say I told you so

The Earth has been around 4000 billion years Rests on seven tectonic plates that forms the Lithosphere It's the 3rd on line Spinning around the sun they think it might be Hydrogen and Oxygen down there Geological data tells life might become apparent they have water they have air and a fairly friendly weather No signs of civilization no communications No proof of any kind of any intelligent form of life, No! There is no evidece There is no life on Earth No intelligent life on earth They have bacteria down there some kind of parasite 75% water 25% spam they seem to have no purpose they're not good protein A very basic being with no survival skills They ain't intelligent There is no life on Earth no intelligent life on earth A meteorite will fall and probably wipe em all

Heat, 90 degrees no air to breath Sun is melting Broadway Man, it's beating me down pushing me around swelling uptown we wonder when When the heatwave is going to end And the rain cool down the sidewalks Boys are kicking some $5's by rolling the dice killing some time Girls are filling their nails watching the cars getting hit by the stream of the hydrant Church has open it's doors all double parked waiting for God at 545 Pablo is inside Hoping I'm gonna come with the storm We wonder when When the heatwave it's going to end When it will will cool down We wonder when when the heatwave is going to end and the rain cool down the sidewalks

There is a riot at my door forget what I said before An explosion broke outside and half the band is gone but we have the show on friday We have been calling the club no one there to pick up the phone no one can play the drums on this one note rock n roll one note rock n roll and the guys from the other band are also friends of mine they sing about butterflies and other psychedelic highs they are talking to an old man down on 105th St he had a smile that had no teeth and he seems to be having a good time with this one note rock n roll one note rock n roll somebody come and wake me up and tell me this isn't true I would hug you if I could but I don't know where you are There is a riot at my door but I don't care anymore have you ever felt the cold of this one note rock n roll? One note rock n roll

You can take a leap of fate join the cult, drink the cool aid and when you reach the Heaven's Gates you'll realize instead you should have rock the deer Rock the Deer You can call your senator ask him what's he's standing for and hope your representative will give a shit about your needs or ..... Rock the Deer We could dance the pass de deux first position then plié Then you land on the floor as the audience asks for more you wake up behind the wheel shinny eyes standing still Will you try to swing around? or hit the gas and.... Rock the Deer!

Have you ever felt the taste of the blood coming from your throat Bummed the last cigarette From the firing squad cadette Eternal youth Have no use Sometimes I like to come to see if you are ok but baby don't get out of bed Because I'm not really here I'm happily dead Eternal youth Have no use She's walking down the street like a drug deal gone wrong in a hurry to get home I've been here for so long in this rent control Kid... I've seen the velvet underground Eternal youth Have no use Sometimes I like to come to see if you are ok but baby don't get out of bed Because I'm not really here I'm happily dead Eternal youth Have no use

about

Genuine Psychic is the full-length debut album from rock band Lulu Lewis, out this July via Ilegalia Records. Drawing on influences ranging from post punk to goth to soul (what they dub “Harlem punk”), the album showcases Lulu Lewis as an inventive and pivotal band creating a distinctly unique sound.

Founded by husband and wife duo Pablo Martin (Tom Tom Club, The Du-Rites) and Dylan Hundley (Metropolitan), Lulu Lewis have established themselves as one of New York’s most prolific and versatile underground rock bands over the past three years, whether collaborating with artists like Brendan Canty of Fugazi or sharing the stage with musicians like Lenny Kaye and Richard Lloyd. The band was the subject of a short documentary from Condé Nast, while their debut EP earned them praise for its “bold pop-rocking with soulful touches courtesy of Hundley’s up-front delivery” (The Vinyl District), while their art house-style videos have been called “a force to be reckoned with, wielding a progressive spirit of artistry and passion” (Atwood Magazine). They are joined live by William Harvey (Urban Verbs), Jay Mumford (J-Zone, The Du-Rites) and Bruce Martin (Tom Tom Club)

Lulu Lewis balance their sharp insight and dark poeticism with an air of playfulness across their genre-bending catalog. Haunting goth rock tracks live alongside tongue-in-cheek, synth-driven new wave, all connected by a sonic world of incinerating guitars, cutting rhythm section, and lo-fi production. Genuine Psychic acknowledges the light and dark duality of the universe without taking itself too seriously. Over the course of ten tracks, it recalls rock sounds of the Bowery’s grittiest days with a perspective that builds on the past, rather than copy it. In doing so, they create something entirely new and unique to itself, free of any trappings of genre or time, and utterly exhilarating.
