about

The Gingerdead Men Akron, Ohio

The Gingerdead Men (tGDM) were a bad-ass, rock’n roll band. They shunned trends and embraced complete creative freedom. They tought rock’n roll should be loud, to the point, and capable of shaking your pants and bobbing your head. Their lyrics told tall tales about the future, the past, monsters and more. Somehow, it worked. Well.

tGDM believed that massive amplification was ALWAYS the answer.

Redeem code

Track Name: Waiting for the Balloon to Go Up
the clouds are gathering overhead and i'm afraid
throwing the latch on the bunker in the yard
we got enough food to last us one thousand days
and enough bullets to not try too hard
i heard the plans creeping quiet through the ether
picked them up on my radio in the dark of night
it may have been a series of clicks and pops
cracking that code brought me such delight

no one believes me
no one but you
i'm glad it's just us
because these neighbors are fools

heard something outside at some point late last night
i'm confident that it came from up above
i didn't wake you for fear of causing alarm
but i would have pushed if it came to shove
it seems i waited in the dark for hours on end
played through scenarios of rapid response
but the dawn came and so went the sound
and then i woke you up with complete nonchalance

no one believes me
no one but you
i'm glad it's just us
because these neighbors are fools

no one believes me
no one but you
i'm glad it's just us
because these neighbors are fools

i think it’s been a long time since we came down here
it might be safe outside but who can say
perhaps we should stay put for just a while longer
we gave plenty of freeze-dried turkey
lets strike a compromise right here and right now
come tomorrow we'll open up the gate
but only if we manage to sleep through the night
there's no rush to see what awaits

no one believes me
no one but you
i'm glad it's just us
because these neighbors are fools
Track Name: Bad Science (Demo)
Mother the seas are boiling,
Something's gone terribly wrong
Curiosity has bested me
As you knew it would all along

Father the skies are glowing
My machines have gone awry
Fabric of time and space is unraveling
...and hell if I know why

Curse all the science and the scientists
Curse everyone but me
You know I can't be held responsible
Blame my college degree

Darling, the end is upon us,
It's happening all at once
Inter-dimensional monstrosities,
Devouring us for lunch

Curse all the science and the scientists
Curse everyone but me
You know I can't be held responsible
Blame my college degree

Hold my hand as the drain runs dry
Don't sweat the small stuff, baby, this is the price of progress!

It's like a hurricane...
It's like an atom bomb...
...but much, much worse
Track Name: Skiff Boat Captain's Blues
Yeah, you're on my mind, all the time
Honey, the things you do, they just ain't right
You say I'll never leave, but I just might
as it is you haunt me every single night

The way you move, you got something to hide
I think I'm finished with your endless lies
I'll cruise this river to the end of time
and sink my memories in bottles of wine

Girl, I hear your voice come morning sun
Tellin' all your friends of the evil you have done
A bobby-soxer monster with a silver smoking gun
knocking over liquor stores for a little fun

So good-bye honey, honey
This skiff-boat is all I need
Good luck without me, baby
My soul is finally free

Oh, it feels so right, without you hear
What took me so long to up and disappear?
...but I'll keep watch in case you're near
Oh, Satan, he got nothing baby, it's you I fear

This river flows from dream to dream
They'll drag the bottom for you and me
