lyrics

here we are as the scene unfolds,
a dark-lit corner of a watering hole
it doesn't matter as to who shoots first,
everybody knows history can be reversed.
you want the good word? you want a high five?
the best i can say, you're still alive
if you are desperate for a bit of good news,
let me say that you do not want the truth

mother never said
keep your mouth shut if ain't nice
so i've never been accused
of being polite

as you ride through the valley of death,
you can always lose more than your breath
that valley is a desolate waste,
with fierce beasts patrolling the place
here's the catch you expected to hear,
there's plenty more frightening than the specter of fear
if you're looking for a pick-me-up,
you better keep walking 'cause that's never gonna come

mother never said
keep your mouth shut if ain't nice
so i've never been accused
of being polite

sshhh listen! no news is good news
sshhh listen! there's a lot of news tonight

i'm in possession of a mountain of information
it's about time you started paying a little attention
it's a great big world, all of it unfair
and it will keep on spinning with or without you here
it's a great big world, all of it unfair
and it will chew you up and spit you out without a care!

here's the catch you expected to hear,
there's plenty more frightening than the specter of fear
if you're looking for a pick-me-up,
you better keep walking 'cause that's never gonna come

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.
