about

Three Cities Indiana

Three Cities is hardly the first rock band claiming to do things differently, and they’re definitely not the first to exude an overbearing love for all things classic. Their uniqueness stems from their strict adherence to the old rock ‘n’ roll formula of mixing meaningful songwriting and musicianship without restricting themselves to the boundaries of a single genre. ... more

Track Name: An Introduction
They all are pretty ugly and they all are fat,
And when they play their instruments they sound like crap.
Patrick's out of tune and Terel is totally flat,
And Anthony and David have no rhythm in fact.

They're the Three Cities band,
They're the worst damn band in the land.
And if going to their show is your plan,
Bring a book to read, a DVD,
They'll bore your ears to death you'll see.

The Three Cities band.
Track Name: Time Will Tell
*Verse 1
You, you always said I would fail,
Thought I was lost and frail,
But only time will tell.
And I, I played the part of a fool,
I followed all of your rules,
Now my time has come.

*Pre-Chorus
My wait is over now baby,
It's time to have my chance.
Give me one more reason to thrive,
Well, we'll see how this ends.

*Chorus
The lost generation has now been found.
We're kings and queens, with no need for crowns.
We dove head first and we have yet to drown.
Now's our time, we are the lost and found.

*Verse 2
You, you're running away,
Do you have nothing to say?
Only time will tell.
But I, I swear I'm taking a stand,
Your doubt has made me the man that I am,
But now we're done.

*Pre-Chorus
My wait is over now baby,
It's time to have my chance.
Give me one more reason to thrive,
Well, we'll see how this ends.

*Chorus
The lost generation has now been found.
We're kings and queens, with no need for crowns.
We dove head first and we have yet to drown.
Now's our time, we are the lost and found.

*Bridge
There's nothing you can say,
to make me change my mind.
My life is my life,
I will not let you define.
Take back your shallow words,
Take back your hardened heart,
Your words will never reach me,
We are very much apart.
You have no control,
Over who I am.
You say that we're goners,
But I don't give a damn.

*Pre-Chorus
My wait is over now baby,
It's time to have my chance.
Give me one more reason to thrive,
Well, we'll see how this ends.

*Chorus
The lost generation has now been found.
We're kings and queens, with no need for crowns.
We dove head first and we have yet to drown.
Now's our time, we are the lost and found.
Track Name: Overturning Tables
*Verse 1
“Take my hand,” she said,
“Let me guide you through your struggle.
A dollar here will save your soul,
One more will ease your troubles.

Tell me which do you desire,
A life of gold or burning in the fire?
Give your money up to him,
The only way to wash your sin."

*Chorus
Fall victim to persuasion, by a devil in disguise,
Throwing wishes in the waters that we use to baptize.
Manipulating others through the things that they most fear,
But I'm sitting here and I'm overturning tables in my head.

*Verse 2
3 easy installments,
Brings you eternal salvation.
To intimidate through faith-based scares,
It’s exploitative taxation.

The shakedown starts with you and me,
The ones who seek sanctuary.
“Give your money up to him,
The only way to wash your sin."

*Chorus
Fall victim to persuasion, by a devil in disguise,
Throwing wishes in the waters that we use to baptize.
Manipulating others through the things that they most fear,
But I'm sitting here and I'm overturning tables in my head.

*Bridge
More money, more power,
Nobody will counter.
Put your cards out on the table,
You want to fight it but you're just not able to.

Speak up once, you’ll be shunned for life,
And that’s how it’s done.
That’s how it’s done so fall in line.
Track Name: Den of Remembrance
*Verse 1
Dream away, close your eyes and drift into that place.
Solitude.
Hiding from the world you feel that all is right.
Preparing for the day ahead.

Step into the light, expectations running high.
Give it time, give it time, oh give it time.
The things you've built up in your mind are not what you will find outside.
And slowly you retreat back into that place.

*Chorus
In the den of remembrance, you find strength.
You find hope, you find solace, you find the will to face another day.
You see the ending, you see the goal, it's so attainable.
But in the end you know, it's only just a dream, it's only just a dream.

*Verse 2
Delusions filling up your mind,
Can't tell what is real or right.
Lost in your own grand reality.

Life it seems to be a failed illusion,
Efforts give no mental restitution,
Bring it back, oh bring it back inside.

*Chorus
In the den of remembrance, you find strength.
You find hope, you find solace, you find the will to face another day.
You see the ending, you see the goal, it's so attainable.
But in the end you know, it's only just a dream, it's only just a dream.

*Verse 3
No (no), I'm not the one who needs help (help),
Save that for somebody else (else).
Tell me one reason that I cannot be,
Anybody but myself.

Trapped in his own fantasy,
Mislead by his sense of belief,
A lapse in his own sanity has brought him,
Pseudo clarity.

*Chorus
In the den of remembrance, you find strength.
You find hope, you find solace, you find the will to face another day.
You see the ending, you see the goal, it's so attainable.
But in the end you know, it's only just a dream, it's only just a dream.
Track Name: Runnin' To You
*Verse 1
You could have let me know,
You let your real side show.
But now I'm done inside,
You'll never get to see me cry.
You're full of lies its true,
To think that I loved you.
Now there's a hole in my heart,
That you gladly left behind.

*Chorus
I bet you think that I'm sorry,
For falling in love with you.
I bet you think that I'm crying,
Crying over you.

*Verse 2
Your words were death to me,
I was too blind to see.
Now you're dead inside,
Promised I'd never see you die.
Your soul was innocent,
The devil took you home.
Now there,s a whole in my heart,
That you gladly left behind.

*Chorus
I bet you think that I'm sorry,
For falling in love with you.
I bet you think that I'm crying,
Crying over you.

*Verse 3
I say, "bye bye baby," to the man in the mirror.
Do you hear my words?
Are they getting any clearer?
I say, "bye bye baby," to the woman of my dreams .
Because the promises of love.
Keep me runnin' to you.
Track Name: Dethroned
*Verse 1
You pass judgment when all you know is my name.
You laugh and point fingers like we are all the same.
But I live in silence in a world with no friends.
This special place, alone until the end.

*Pre-Chorus
Don't try to change me,
God knows I've tried.
Take a look at the world,
Through my eyes.

*Chorus
Don't tell me that I am wrong.
Don't tell me that I must grow.
I've been me my whole life,
What the hell do you know?
I've given it my all, It's time to take a bow,
No more waiting my time is now.

*Verse 2
You offer me your love then kick me while I'm down.
The blood from my wounds trickle to the ground.
Always surrounded by walls that are closing in.
My hiding place, alone again.

*Pre-Chorus
Don't try to change me,
God knows I've tried.
Take a look at the world,
Through my eyes.

*Chorus
Don't tell me that I am wrong.
Don't tell me that I must grow.
I've been me my whole life,
What the fuck do you know?
I've given it my all, It's time to take a bow,
No more waiting my time is now.
Track Name: Need
*Verse 1
Baby please tell me if I'm on your mind,
Because you're on mine tonight.
Baby please tell me is there anything that you need,
Because I'll get you anything you like.
Would you like a dozen roses?
Maybe some chocolate will do?
Just tell me what you need,
I'll provide it for you.
I'll be your shelter,
In the midst of all the rain.
Don't you shed a tear,
I will carry your pain.

*Chorus
Just don't tell me,
That you want me to go.
I need your love baby,
More than you'll ever know.

*Verse 2
Baby did I disappoint you?
Did I let you down?
Why are you leaving me?
Do you not want me around?
Hey, come back here,
I thought I was your man.
Oh, things have now changed,
Please help me understand.
I loved your heart,
And I let you be you.
How do I get you back?
Tell me what do I have to do.

*Chorus
Just don't tell me,
That you want me to go.
I need your love baby,
More than you'll ever know.

*Bridge
Look what you've done.
Look what you've done.
Look what you've done.
Look what you've done to me.
Track Name: Contagio
*Verse 1
Run for the mountains, and run all alone.
There's no water to cleanse, this prison's your home.
They call it a crisis, but they’re scared to say plague.
It's out of control, who must we blame?

*Pre-Chorus
The nurse! The nurse!
She says she has the cure.
The infected is infected, it all starts to blur.
The nurse! The nurse!
Shes on the flight home.
Our chance is in the air, but shes infected her own.

*Chorus
Breathe! Breathe! Breathe and enjoy,
The breeze while it's still clean.
Oh when, oh when will we ever see,
This day within our dreams?

*Verse 2
The numbers have doubled, pandemic on rise.
Safety and health, it's pure disguise.
Cling to your no-one, you're safer than all.
The cure to the fear, man must fall!

*Pre-Chorus
The nurse! The nurse!
She says she has the cure.
The infected is infected, it all starts to blur.
The nurse! The nurse!
Shes on the flight home.
Our chance is in the air, but shes infected her own.

*Chorus
Breathe! Breathe! Breathe and enjoy,
The breeze while it's still clean.
Oh when, oh when will we ever see,
This day within our dreams?

*Outro
Containment, containment, a system of trust.
Oh heaven, oh heaven, oh heaven please close your gates on us.
Track Name: Anthony's Garage
*Verse 1
Closing time I'm feeling fine,
I only got one thing on my mind.
Hop in my ride I'm on my way,
There's a place where I can stay.
Where the beer is cold and the food is hot,
I'm about to give it everything I've got.
So come along and bring your friends,
You're not gonna want this night to end.

*Pre-Chorus
So, let's rock!
So, let's rock!
So, let's rock!

*Chorus
There's a place where you can hide,
Just beyond that county line.
Grab a drink and come inside.
Enjoy the ride in Anthony's garage.

*Verse 2
The door is open come on in,
We're about to crank this bitch to 10.
Fill your cup don't be shy,
Just make it last all night, 'cause,
I bet you don't do this every day.
So, throw away your worries,
Leave it all behind,
And make the great escape.

*Pre-Chorus
So, let's rock!
So, let's rock!
So, let's rock!

*Chorus
There's a place where you can hide,
Just beyond that county line.
Grab a drink and come inside.
Enjoy the ride in Anthony's garage.
Track Name: The Pessimist
*Verse 1
When life gives gives me lemons, I rub them in my eyes.
When life gives me roses, I see thorns in disguise.
My glass is half-empty, my soup is full of flies.
My perspective may be backwards, but I’d like to think I’m wise.

*Chorus 1
How can you live with that attitude,
Acting like everything’s all wrong?
Living with that much negativity,
Must make your days feel so long.

*Verse 2
Some people go through hardship, but they take it on the chin.
Some people go through sorrow, but they greet it with a grin.
But I take all my blessings and I give them my own spin.
You show me silver linings, I turn them back to clouds again.

*Chorus 2
How can you live with that attitude,
Acting like everything’s all wrong?
Living with that much negativity,
Must make your days feel so long.

How can you stand being a pessimist,
Thinking that it all will end in tears?
You think you’re just living in reality,
But really you’re just living out your fears.
Track Name: I Am Me
*Verse 1
These times are getting harder,
I still feel so alone.
Although you are with me,
My heart is like stone.
I cast aside my love ones,
I try to disappear.
I say that I am not afraid,
But everything I fear.

*Pre-Chorus
You once told me, "son,
Be the best you can be."
I try to follow you,
But I can barely be me.

*Chorus
Is there anyone out there?
Can you hear me calling?
I'm losing who I am,
Can't you see me falling?
I'm not the man I used to be,
I am faithfully me.

*Verse 2
"Take my words,
And please make them true.
All of the rest, my boy,
Will naturally come to you.
There will come a time,
When you can look me in my eyes.
But for now live your life,
We will meet again in the skies."

*Pre-Chorus
You once told me, "son,
Be the best you can be."
I try to follow you,
But I can barely be me.

*Chorus
Is there anyone out there?
Can you hear me calling?
I'm losing who I am,
Can't you see me falling?
I'm not the man I used to be,
I am faithfully me.

Who am I?
Who am I?
Who am I?
Who am I?

*Bridge
I'm sorry for the things that I've done.
I've let you down and you're not the only one.
Forgive me please so I can let it go,
Let it go,
Let it go,
Let it go.

*Pre-Chorus
You once told me, "son,
Be the best you can be."
I try to follow you,
But I can barely be me.

*Chorus
Is there anyone out there?
Can you hear me calling?
I'm losing who I am,
Can't you see me falling?
I'm not the man I used to be,
I am faithfully me.
Track Name: Rush On
*Verse 1
God of the sky looks down on me,
His piercing gaze remains.
His thunder breaks the silence of the night,
A symbol of the freedom we proclaim.

One battle left before us,
Rush on, rush on, rush on.
For this fight will be ours tonight,
If we all rush on.
Rush on, rush on, rush on.

*Verse 2
Seductress turn your ardent stare,
I must be moving on.
Your beauty brings me to my knees,
And my prayer is that we can last all through the night.

One battle left before us,
Rush on, rush on, rush on.
For this fight will be ours tonight,
If we all rush on.
Rush on, rush on, rush on.

*Verse 3
As ages passed and time went by,
I marched across the fields.
The Seductress and the God of Sky,
Stood smiling nearby.

One battle left before us,
Rush on, rush on, rush on.
For this fight will be ours tonight,
If we all rush on.
Rush on, rush on, rush on.
Track Name: What's Inside
*Verse 1
Another failure,
Another mistake.
Another excuse for you to make.

*Pre-Chorus
Success is no secret, this you will find.
Just take a look inside and open up your mind.

*Verse 2
Some people say you're wrong,
Some people say you're right.
You'll never win if you don't put up a fight.

*Pre-Chorus
Success is no secret, this you will find.
Just take a look inside and open up your mind.

*Chorus
What lies before you,
What lies behind.
These things you should not mind.
All that matters is what's inside.

*Bridge
Starting from scratch can be the hardest part.
To make it in this world you've gotta have heart.

Stop making excuses,
For everything you've done.
When you put your past behind you,
You'll know that you have won.

*Verse 3
Now that you have it,
Don't let it go.
You found the answer let whole world know.

*Pre-Chorus
Success is no secret, this you will find.
Just take a look inside and open up your mind.

*Chorus
What lies before you,
What lies behind.
These things you should not mind.
All that matters is what's inside.
