about

HEADLESS NIXON Providence, Rhode Island

My fellow Americans, we have found ourselves rich in goods, but ragged in spirit. We are caught in war, wanting peace. Division tears us, while we are wishing to be united. We see around us empty lives, wanting fulfillment. To a crisis of the spirit, we need an answer of the spirit. To find that answer, we need only look to HEADLESS NIXON. ... more

Track Name: Inauguration Day
When I final vote it will be for revolt, to take up arms against the ones who control the most.
We know who the are...
We know what they've done...
There's nowhere left they can hide, so now they're on the run.

The nameless ones alway hide deep in their house of lies.

We can't rollover...
just do what we're told.
Stand up and fight,
for what we're owed.
We can't do nothing,
or things will say the same,
the more they'll take,
our dreams away.

How did we ever let get to this?
They have all the tools.
They have the influence,
and all that we've learned,
we've learned from their schools.
Civil obedience is their one golden rule.

The nameless ones alway hide deep in their house of lies.

We can't rollover...
just do what we're told.
Stand up and fight,
for what we're owed.
We can't do nothing,
or things will say the same,
the more they'll take,
our dreams away.
Track Name: GITMO (getaway)
In his name
its all the same
the more we scream
they more they take away
remembering we were too drunk to say
what had happened new years day...

..and when they come
take you away
back to the place
theres no light of day
and when you think
that your free
they'll come take you
and then you'll see...

When she asked
how can this be
I looked at you
you looked at me
Remembering
we were too drunk to say
what had happened new years day...

..and when they come
take you away
back to the place
theres no light of day
and when you think
how this get through
His names on it
but this jokes on you...

NO INDEFINITE DETENTION.
Track Name: ...in conman we trust.
What you think
you really look like
is nothing more
than delusional avarice

Its the yoke
they put around our neck
choking out your fires
while driving us to death
its the currency
they choose to buy
our time with
while we wait to die

..in conman we trust
cause his paper is never enough.

So I think so
you really need to
take a step back
and get a good look at you...
What you think
you really look like
is nothing more
than delusional avarice

Its the yoke
they put around our neck
choking out your fires
while driving us to death
its the currency
they choose to buy
our time with
while we wait to die

..in conman we trust
cause his paper is never enough.
Track Name: Action Figure for the Underground
In this imaginary land
It's hard to understand
their scale is all so grand
And were so small
So small

then there this Plastic man
Action figure with a plan
w/ a short attention span
but we're still so small
So small

We play by the rules
of this game that we create
so hard for us to win
so hard for us hard to be great.

Someday
someone will come along
To show us the way
they made these bonds so strong

Realized this truth
In Wasted my youth
But not man enough see
who I'm suppose to be

Someday
someone will come along
To show us the way
they made these bonds so strong
Strong
Strong
For so long
For so long
For so long
They made these bond so strong
Track Name: Never, no
Rather die on my feet
Then live life on my knees
So please
Just end me

..and you will never know
The lengths that I will go
To keep you off of me

There got to be a better way.
Even those that run away
live
to fight
other day
Track Name: Crooked Mile
I’m not the only man
that's walked a
crooked mile
I live life the way I
can.

Why do I
always find
what I'm trying to
see
right here in front of
me.

but I’m...
trampled as you
travel pass

I’m not the only scab
you eat once in a
while,
you pick and eat all
you can.

see my world
thought it would last
but I'm
trampled as you
travel past
Track Name: selfhelpless
For your,
problems i have just the thing.
Its a simple rule,
live life like a king.
But remember,
to reap what you sow.
Take whats coming to you
from friend or from foe.
A foe like you’ve never known.
...like you’ve never known.

Self helpless,
but strong.
You take everything said wrong.

I keep a pistol loaded,
in my night stand,
for those dire times.
I know you’d understand.
Sometimes I,
stick that barrel down my throat.
Instantly I get high from all the smoke.
A smoke like you’ve never know.
...like you’ve never known.

I don’t,
want to remember.
Burn this,
house right down.
(to an ember, to an ember)
That was the way it was,
way it had been since September.
I gave the kid the match.
She gave him the temper.
Track Name: Weight
Give me liberty...
or kill me so i can be free,
from your misery,
and your treachery.
Why cant you let me be,
the person i feel that i need to be.
Give me liberty,
or kill me...

When I walk away,
you say “stay stay stay”.
When I move on through,
it bring me back to you.

Its just gravity,
from the weight of how things came to be.
Gravity,
creates the space between you and me.
Why can’t
you give to me
the space i feel i need to me free
Give me liberty,
or kill me...
...can you feel your pull back on me.
