Hurry Up Shotgun Oakland, California

Oakland’s Hurry Up Shotgun have been playing their muscular noisepop/rock for audiences across the bay area and beyond for 5 years now, growing more powerful with every show. In April of 2011 they went into the studio with Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Helmet, Jello Biafra, etc.) and recorded their 2nd album. A self titled album, this record serves as a reintroduction to Shotgun’s unique take on music. ... more

Track Name: Reason
You're the toast of a ghost town.
you're the talk of a dead town.
and there's nothing more that we can do for you.

Here's the host of a lost sound.
you're the talk of a deaf town.
and there's nothing more that we can do for you.

somewhere between the... DAWN AND THE NIGHT
somewhere between the... WRONG AND THE RIGHT
somewhere between the... SACRIFICE AND SLAYING
somewhere between the....

round and round and with no
round and round and with no
round and round and with no
round and round and with no...

somewhere between the... Carbon and the steel
somewhere between the... widow and orphan
somewhere between the... atom and the split
somewhere between the...

round and round and with no
round and round and with no
round and round and with no
round and round and with no... REASON!!!!

You're the talk of the ghost town
you're the talk of a dead town
and there's nothing more that we can do for you.

here's the host of a lost sound.
you're the talk of a deaf town
and there's nothing more that we can do for you.

somewhere between the... words and the rage
somewhere between the... crime and the cage
somewhere between the... reservation
somewhere between the...

round and round and with no
round and round and with no
round and round and with no
round and round and with no... REASON!!!!
Track Name: Watermelon Sugar
You've become a fixture... here in ideath
a broken image with a lantern.... I see a woman on the bridge
we don't fear the tigers anymore... even though they took my parents.
MY PARENTS!

in watermelon sugar. My life is done
in watermelon sugar. My life is done

Charlie asks what we are having for breakfast
he asks as if he doesn't know
writing a book about the weather
whether or not it's been written before...
BEFORE

in watermelon sugar. My life is done
in watermelon sugar. My life is done
in watermelon sugar. My life is done
in watermelon sugar. My life is done

At night i lay awake and think of you
I take a long walk through the forest to see the rising of the moon!
At night i lay awake and think of you
I take a long walk through the forest to see the rising of the moon!

making whisky from forgotten thinkings
Iboil took his thumb and ear today...
now just like my parents parents parents
they've all gone away... AWAY!

in watermelon sugar. My life is done
in watermelon sugar. My life is done
in watermelon sugar. My life is done
in watermelon sugar. My life is done

At night i lay awake and think of you
I take a long walk through the forest to see the rising of the moon!
At night i lay awake and think of you
I take a long walk through the forest to see the rising of the moon!

you've become a fixture.
Track Name: Paths
through the fog I hear the call of a thousand dying men
from afar they drop their bombs not knowing the face of the victim.
without remorse they stick to the course after turning this mountain to sand
burning their gears with our blood and our tears will we ever see and end? NO!!!

lightwaves diffused and refocused into... PATHS!
crystaline in notion.
prisms break the laser-light splits all for your razor blade smile
lightwaves diffused and refocused into... PATHS!
crystaline in notion.
prisms break the laser-light splits all for your razor blade smile

orders come from a dark echelon followed by those unknowing...
this war you cant win to all gods chagrin
counting the souls and the body counts mounting!!!

lightwaves diffused and refocused into... PATHS!
crystaline in notion.
prisms break the laser-light splits all for your razor blade smile
lightwaves diffused and refocused into... PATHS!
crystaline in notion.
prisms break the laser-light splits all for your razor blade smile

Why?
have you
left us here?
why?
have you
forsaken me?
why?

lightwaves diffused and refocused into... PATHS!
crystaline in notion.
prisms break the laser-light splits all for your razor blade smile
lightwaves diffused and refocused into... PATHS!
crystaline in notion.
prisms break the laser-light splits all for your razor blade smile
Track Name: Swim
How can you stand
to look into a mirror?
How can you stand
when you don't know yourself?

How can you stand
to look into a mirror?
how can you stand
when you don't have a job?

how can you tell
a peasant from a king now?
how can you tell
when you don't know your self?

And we all swim together
and we all swim together
and we all swim together
and we all SWIM!!!

well the well dried up and the bottom fell out and the birds and humans learned to
swim about.
well the well dried up and the bottom fell out and the birds and humans learned to
swim about.
well the well dried up and the bottom fell out and the birds and humans learned to
swim about....
Track Name: Ghost of Ursula
mice in the kitchen their mouths are mouthing
somewhere a plane is crashing
heard it from the butcher who sold a pound of liver to the Ghost of Ursala
Siamese if you please Mildred dear put out the tea
a tisket a tasket bones without a casket.

spiderwebs for shoes
spiderwebs for clothes
you can see right through
right through the bone

Mice in the kitchen their mouths are mouthing
kill it once or let it go.
heard it from the butcher who sold a pound of liver to the Ghost of Ursula
Siamese if you please Mildred dear put out the tea
a tisket a tasket bones with out a casket

spiderwebs for shoes
spiderwebs for clothes
you can see right through
right through the bone

the Ghost of Ursula
veins twisting like highways
the Ghost of Ursula
my sister now and always
do it now or not at all....
Track Name: Garbage Destinations
we gather round slowly and gravely
collecting garbage from far away destinations
no air traffic
no cloud cover
there is no hiding form a blue sky in a blue sky now.

we gather round softly and patiently
dissecting garbage from far away destinations
no air traffic
no cloud cover
there is no hiding form a blue sky in blue sky now.

we gather round in awe of the great divider
hope it don't take too long
long enough to say our good byes
no air traffic
no cloud cover
there is no hiding from a blue sky in a blue sky now
Track Name: Gravity
now we are descending i'm calling you out
there is no feeling, no sensation of falling down.....
falling down...
to be born falling is to be born with wings
there is no feeling, no sensation of falling down...

how does it feel to be falling?

here in the vacuum there is nothing to fear
only the longing to be falling with you...

how does it feel to be falling?

the torches are lit! the torches are lit!
come march, come march with us, the torches are lit! the torches are lit!
come join us here inside the fire... we'll be waiting for you!!
Track Name: Little Pieces
we're falling all around in little pieces
we're calling through vacuum tubes and old resistors
put the phone call on hold, watch the city burn to the ground.
everyone you know will notice nothing.

we're falling all around in little pieces
we're calling through vacuum tubes and old resistors
close the gate and lock the door watch the city burn to the ground
everyone you know will owe you nothing!

we're falling all around in little pieces
we're calling through vacuum tubes and old resistors
put the phone call on hold, watch the city burn to the ground
everyone you know will owe you nothing.
Track Name: Girl From CA
she's from California
she don't need no make up
she's from California
and i'm from nowhere!!!

after all the fires burn out
this will keep you warm and sound
after all the fires burn out
I will keep you warm and sound
after all the fires burn out
this will keep you warm and sound
after all the fires burn out the clouds will clear up and we'll see STARS....
