about

A cross-section of Wrongtown's work over the last two years. Instrumental recording for "We're a band. You'll like us" was recorded over a weekend with vocals added once we had a rough mix to work with.

We produced this release partly because for too long we've had no satisfactory response to fans who've expressed a desire to own recordings of our material. We would love to release a solid EP in the future, hope this experiment brings us closer to that dream!

Deciding to provide digital downloads on a Pay What You Can basis makes sense to us, as it allows our fans who can afford it to pay what they think is fair so we can work towards more polished releases in the future. On the flip side, it still allows those who don't have spare cash right now to legitimately obtain examples of our work. Of course we're all for reaching new people as well, so if you haven't already we'd love you to "Like" us on Facebook, or just tell your friends!

Thanks for supporting us, we hope you like what we've put together here.

Track Name: On Fire
So set me on fire
These sunset dreams are dire
Let the burns make their mark
I need to learn
Spoken words can easily turn
Need to think before it's done

And if I had a dollar for every time
these words have cost both you and I our rhyme
context lies within the mind

And the feeling I get
When the rhyme makes me sweat
And the words on my throat
make the core of me choke
It's a dead weather cycle
Without my disciples
They leave me alone
At the end of the day

And the feeling I get
When the rhyme makes me sweat
And the words on my throat
make the core of me choke
It's a dead weather cycle
Without my disciples
They leave me alone
At the end

I just want to let it out
Take one shot before the sun rides out
I just want to let it out
Scream till my lungs give in
(x2)

Like walking a wire
In my life my dreams can't aspire
To be stable all the time
I need to learn
Spoken words can easily turn
Need to think before it's done


And the feeling I get
When the rhyme makes me sweat
And the words on my throat
make the core of me choke
It's a dead weather cycle
Without my disciples
They leave me alone
At the end

I just want to let it out
Take one shot before the sun rides out
I just want to let it out
Scream till my lungs give in
(x2)

make the core of me choke
It's a dead weather cycle
Without my disciples
They leave me alone
At the end of the day

And the feeling I get
When the rhyme makes me sweat
And the words on my throat

Take one shot before the sun rides out
I just want to let it out

Track Name: Jack And Jill
Jack and Jill went up the hill
sent to fetch some water from the well.
Jill was sweet but Jack was bitter
second born of a double litter
And on that day poor little Jill she fell.
And Jack he thinks he's going straight to hell

I'm sick of worshiping the pieces
of such, expertly artworked papers.
'cos they, they mean everything
From nothing to a leash.

Hansel and his sister Gretel
She was soft while he was made of metal
Dark eyes set to kill.
Didn't act like siblings should
Getting money any way they could
For crack, smack, and hammer.
Till one day their purse was tight
He whored her on that black, bleak, night
And she should not forgive.
But she'll stick around, eaten up with sin.

Are we doomed to repetition, to repeat?
Are we lacking recognition or receipt?
Where's the so called seperation between
Church and state?
It's earth and clay.
Its hurt and shame.

I'm sick of worshiping the pieces
Of such, expertly artworked papers.
'cos they, they mean everything
From nothing to a leash.

Track Name: Hear Me Out
We are alone
in this world
if we choose it.
You change your tone
on your own
auto bullshit.

Cos you may think you're on the road to freedom
We may see a better path ahead

Can anybody hear me now?
My mortal skin is turning inside out
Can anybody hear me out?
I am alive
(x2)

We are alone
in this world
if we choose it.
You change your tone
on your own
auto bullshit.

So tell me why are you afraid
To face your own love tidal wave?
(x 6)

Cos you may think you're on the road to freedom
We may see a better path ahead

Can anybody hear me now?
My mortal skin is turning inside out
Can anybody hear me out?
I am alive
(x2)
Track Name: Sleeping With The Crows
And if your bad you'll see me coming
And if your good you'll watch me leave
The thing you're after is sitting next to me
Cos I'm a sucker for ever after
But tonight I'll watch you bleed

Sleeping with the crows
You'll hear them coming
Sleeping with the crows
You'll watch them go
Sleeping with the crows
You'll hear them coming
Sleeping with the
sleeping with the
sleeping with the crows

Stop what your doing
Because tonight is on me
The thing your after is sitting next to me
Cos I'm a sucker for ever after
But tonight I'll watch you bleed

Sleeping with the crows
You'll hear them coming
Sleeping with the crows
You'll watch them go
Sleeping with the crows
You'll hear them coming
Sleeping with the
sleeping with the
sleeping with the crows
(x 2)

Cos I will grab you by the hair
I will take you anywhere
On this to you I swear
Cos I don't really care
(x 2)

No I don't really care any more
I don't really care any more
I don't really care any more
I don't really care
(x 2)

Sleeping with the crows
You'll hear them coming
Sleeping with the crows
You'll watch them go
Sleeping with the crows
You'll hear them coming
Sleeping with the
sleeping with the
sleeping with the crows
(x 2)
Track Name: God-Fearing Life
On a dead pan afternoon
feeling faith erode from you
common sense surrounding you
You know that fear is the only gun
your holster has ever felt
locked in through a heavy belt

But through the failings of passion
Beams an unworthy light
All of this time spent believing
Must end here tonight
Your god-fearing life

And there's no reason for the madness
And there's no reason for the pain
(It's on, it's on, it's on for young and old)
You know it can't be heaven
But you have to be told (x2)

End your great debate
End your great debate

Now take this fable, and throw it right into the fire
Now take this fable, and throw it right into the fire
Your god-fearing life

But through the failings of passion
Beams an unworthy light
All of this time spent believing
Must end here tonight
Your god-fearing life

And there's no reason for the madness
And there's no reason for the pain
(It's on, it's on, it's on for young and old)
You know it can't be heaven
But you have to be told (x2)

End your great debate
End your great debate

Now take this fable, and throw it right into the fire
Now take this fable, and throw it right into the fire

Your god-fearing life (x 8)
Track Name: Always The Pawn
He's sad and lonley
but not alone
he's waiting for you to head home
Thinking about his touch before the sun comes up
Bending like a glass before it all heats up
I know where you're heading for
I know where you're heading for

So breathe a little bit closer
Feel the fear and watch a tear slowly run
(x 2)

Always the pawn but never the king
You always reached out for the hardest things
Always the priest but never the sin
you're going to break those boys till they give in.
(x 2)

And now the wonder
has slipped away from me
You've turned your back on generosity
It's like he reached right in and turned the red light on
The pain the blame the fourtune's left me overclocked

I am afraid
I am afraid

He's sad and lonley
but not alone
he's waiting for you to head home
I know where you're heading for
I know where you're heading for
I know where you're heading for
I know where you're heading for

So breathe a little bit closer
Feel the fear and watch a tear slowly run
(x 2)

Always the pawn but never the king
You always reached out for the hardest things
Always the priest but never the sin
you're going to break those boys till they give in.
(x 2)
Track Name: The Bloody Line
Some men like pain
and that's ok with me
But you my friend have gone too far
you're just a little too extreme
Now times have changed
it's all been done before
But just because it has
doesn't mean that you do it more

You're into self circumsision
You've found that new division
You've crossed that cut off line
Always wanting more
Hanging off the door
Show them how to bleed
Show them how to plead for pain

You've gotta find that cut off line
Go with the flow
You've gotta find that cut off line

Some men like pain
and that's ok with me
But you my friend have gone too far
you're just a little too extreme

Go with the flow
You've gotta find that cut off line
(x 2)

You're into self circumsision
You've found that new division
You've crossed that cut off line
Always wanting more
Hanging off the door
Show them how to bleed
Show them how to plead for pain
You're into self circumsision
You've found that new division
You've crossed that cut off line

You're into self circumsision
You've found that new division
You've crossed that cut off line
Always wanting more
Hanging off the door
Show them how to bleed
Show them how to plead for pain
Track Name: Rodeo Clown
Same old story, here we stand
I know your problems
like the back of my hand
And you're bringing me down
You're killing me darling
Like a Rodeo Clown
You're killing me darling

You'll never find another
so you say
You're always the first fool
to walk away
'cos love takes time to activate
So stand right there
watch it emanate

And you're bringing me down
You're killing me darling
Like a Rodeo clown
You're killing me darling

And you howl like a wolf
But you sting like a bee
The whole thing just reeks of blind jealousy
I've read all your stories
I've heard them before
but your more a letter on a dying man's door

And you're bringing me down
You're killing me darling
Like a Rodeo clown
You're killing me darling

'cos love takes time to activate
So stand right there
watch it emanate
So the story goes

And you howl like a wolf
But you sting like a bee
The whole thing just reeks of blind jealousy
I've read all your stories
I've heard them before
but your more a letter on a dying man's door

So you think I'm not that type
So you think I'm not a lover
And you're bringing me down
You're killing me darling
Like a rodeo clown
You're killing me darling

You're bringing me down
You're killing me darling
Like a rodeo clown
You're killing me darling

Your killing me darling (x 4)
