lyrics

Close your eyes and take a breath
Cross my fingers, I'm a wreck
All along I've been amused
Have a drink and sing the blues
How much longer will it take?
Don't you know what is at stake?
Guess there's nothing left to say
1, 2, 3, take it away, running through
Our debut will shock and awe
Knock 'em dead, they're so bourgeois
Saw our names on the marquee
Played our songs on MTV
Our debut is fine and grand
Off your seats and lend a hand
Buy our CD, wear our shirts
To the streets and spread the word
Selling out for a review
'cause recognition's overdue
Why do I feel so ashamed
Have a smoke and pass the blame
People see me in the streets
Walk right by still incomplete
What on earth is this delay?
Don't you know it ends today? Deja vu...
Our debut will shock and awe
Knock 'em dead, they're so bourgeois
Saw our names on the marquee
Played our songs on MTV
Our debut is fine and grand
Off your seats and lend a hand
Buy our CD, wear our shirts
To the streets and spread the word
How come no one told me
They're just poking fun?
You cannot control me
This has just begun
Our debut will shock and awe
Knock 'em dead, they're so bourgeois
Saw our names on the marquee
Played our songs on MTV
Our debut will shock and awe
Knock 'em dead, they're so bourgeois
Saw our names on the marquee
Played our songs on, 1, 2, 3!
Our debut was fine and grand
You left your seats and lent a hand
Bought our CD, wore our shirts
Something else is so absurd

about

Asphalt Green Paramus, New Jersey

In late 2009, four individuals from four different musical backgrounds came together in what many people saw as a pathetic attempt at a creative endeavor. Those naysayers were quickly silenced by a sound that has been described as "frightening"...

Asphalt Green fuses blues, rock, jazz, and alternative into a concoction of pure ecstasy. Sinners, Tricksters, Killers & Saints is their first album.
