about

Wiscon Seattle, Washington

Mash up the Mysterians, The Screamers, and The Ronnettes. Comprised of Taryn Rene' Dorsey, Johnny Shea, Stephen Devine, and Paul Morgan. ... more

Track Name: Surrender Dorothy
Sick of following the yellow brick road
And this wizard guy is giving me the creeps
A dog like me can see that this is an opportunity
We fit in much better with these freaks

We just got here and this place seems so nice
We could run this town if it were up to me
I'd rather reign in hell than serve in heaven
And this witch has got some tricks I wanna see

Don't close your eyes
Don't click your heels
Don't send me back to Kansas
Surrender Dorothy
Don't close your eyes
Don't click your heels
Don't send me back to Kansas
Surrender Doro

What's the impetus to head back to the farm?
When our lives back there were bleak and full of fear
The lady next door will kill me if I return
So I think that you and I should just stay here

Try to look at things from my point of view
And I think that you and I will soon agree
I'd rather reign in hell thanserve in heaven
And that witch has got some tricks I wanna see

Don't close your eyes
Don't click your heels
Don't send me back to Kansas
Surrender Dorothy
Don't close your eyes
Don't click your heels
Don't send me back to Kansas
Surrender Dorothy

Tomorrow we can fly all over town
And let this witch chase us around
Let's get caught let's get found in this place
Surrender Dorothy

Track Name: Mr Do's Castle
Your Uncle was a rich man, my solicitor says true.
That wealth it can be yours but there’s one thing you have to do.
One night. One night. In house overlooking the moors, just
One night. One night. Then all that wealth is yours...



The house is cold and vacant, and the villagers tell me tales
Of the ones who stayed there being drug straight down into hell,
But one night. One night. I can’t let them frighten me, just
One night. One night. How bad can it be?
It was worse than I thought…

Blood was dripping down the wall, something was stomping down the hall,
Then I heard its dreadful call of Get out! Get out!
The bed began to levitate. A ghostly presence filled with hate,
Whispered that it was much too late to Get out! Get out!

It was worse than I thought

and now I am rich man, my solicitor tells me so.
All the money in the world and there’s no where I can go.
One night. One night. Now I have to sleep with a knife.
One night. One night. And now I’m scarred for life.
Track Name: Smellin' Bad Beach
Everybody’s going to Smelling-Bad Beach, So I guess I have to go.
“It’s going to be the greatest time!” my friends they all say so,
But I know they’ll be drinking beer and smoking weed,
Dropping acid or a little speed, and they say that’s just the thing that I need.

Here we are at Smelling-Bad Beach, But I’m not sure why I came.
Watching all my friends lose their minds, it all just feels the same,
Then I see you standing there looking unimpressed with funny hair and a thrift store dress,
And I swear I felt something burst inside my chest.
When I saw you. At Smelling-bad Beach.

Everybody’s here at Smelling-Bad Beach, but we just don’t care.
It’s like it’s only you and I, and no one else is there.
So we just find a quiet spot to pretend, that this night is never going to end,
And I don’t care if I never ever go home again
Cause I’m with you. At Smelling-Bad Beach

And I don’t care if I never ever go home…
Track Name: I Like The Lights
I liked the lights
I liked the bright lights
I liked to hang on to the barrier right before the stage

I liked the amps
I liked the sludgy Hi Watt amps
I liked the ringing in my ears I felt all the next two days

Morbid Angel always seemed to pass me by
and Black Metal never really meant that much
to me

I was never a church burner
I just liked the records and the lights
I liked the lights
and I said
I was never a church burner
I just liked the records and the lights
I liked the lights
I liked the lights


I liked the shows
I liked the Iron Maiden shows
I liked the feelings that the music brought coming down on me

I liked the tapes
I liked the compilation tapes
I liked the squeezing one more hardcore song on a C90


Impaled Nazarene was never on my deck
and Black Metal never really meant that much
to me

I was never a church burner
I just liked the records and the lights
I liked the lights
and I said
I was never a church burner
I just liked the records and the lights
I liked the lights
I liked the lights
