Lyrics from the Charlestown CD

Uptight5.) Uptight

Uptight — I ain't cool, I'm
Uptight — So I ain't cool, I'm
Uptight — I ain't cool

Did I act like a fool
You know, I did well in school
They say I'm uptight


You throw a lighted match
down the powder magazine.
You like to see me sweat,
Buggs, I think you're pretty mean.

You throw a lighted match
down the powder magazine.
You like to see me sweat,
man, I think you're really mean.

You say, I'm Uptight
I know, I'm Uptight
You say, I'm Uptight

Listen to: Uptight


6.) Fear

FearFear —
I’m afraid of the dark
What’s beneath the bed
Pull the covers over my head
Going down, going down
Conquered by your fear

Too scared to run, too scared to crawl
Too scared to scream, you’re frightened of it
You’re going down for the count
You’re overcome, conquered by your fear

Fear —
There’s no reason to be afraid
Theres’s nothing behind the shade
Pull the covers off of your head
Going down, going down
Conquered by your fear.

Too scared to run, too scared to crawl
Too scared to scream, you’re frightened of it
You’re going down for the count
You’re overcome, conquered by your fear

Fear —
Going down, going down
Conquered by your fear.

Listen to: Fear


7.) Shot to Pieces

Come on God, just give me one more chance
Come on man, just give me one more chance.
To be shot down at Jackson Square, it's criminal.
Three kids down at Jackson Square, it's a sin.

They were shot, shot to pieces
They were shot, shot to pieces

Listen to: Shot to Pieces


Murray and Sadie8.) Murray & Sadie

Murray and Sadie are on the road.
Going’s fast as fast as they can go
Times have changed, they changed
Since they were young
Murray and Sadie are on the run.

Slow down, you’re going to crash.
Sixteen miles an hour is way too fast
Murray and Sadie are on the road.
Murray and Sadie are on the road.
They’re on the road.

They talk about how things have changed
They talk about the good old days
Maybe things will sometimes change
Murray looks to Sadie’s side.
See some car pass on the right.

The Immigrants

These newcomers sport an intriguing sound with an incantatory edge not too far short of compelling...

The Immigrants

Their melodic instincts are quite keen and the vocalist's phrasing is original and chuck full of irresistible hooks. The next Morphine?

The Immigrants

Amazingly unpretentious music from this duo... if you like smart pop delivered in a straight forward fashion with no frills or gimmicks, you'll want to check out The Immigrants...

The Immigrants

My favorite tunes here are "Jackie Boy," "Changemaker," and "Shot to Pieces." This here thing goes to show how cool underground music really can be.
