Lyrics from the Charlestown CD

13.) Libel

libelBuddy, she don't need me
She used to love me, but now
Now she forgets to feed me
She laughs and teases me
She'll take me to the pound
or get the vet to put me in the ground.

She don't want me now.
She don't need me now.

Whitey, she don't need me
She used to love me, but now
Now she mistreats me.
She laughs and teases me
She'll take me to the lab
Or cut my heart out,
And feed it to the cat.

She used to walk me when
I was a puppy. now she
won't even throw me a bone.

She don't want me now.
She don't need me now.

Listen to: Libel


14.) Long Gone

I didn't listen to myself when
I said don't believe her eyes.
She's not for me she held me tight.
I didn't take my own advice

Long GoneBut I gave in I went with her
I guess I'll never change
She held my hand she looked so good
She smiled when she said

I wish, I wish I never met you
I wish, I never laid my eyes upon you
Most of all I'll soon forget you
Now that you're gone, Long Gone.

If I listened to myself.
I wouldn't know her color eyes.
If I listened to myself,
I wouldn't know her deep despise.

But I caved in, I talked to her.
I hope I never change.
She held my hand, she looked so good
She smiled when she said.

I wish, I wish I never met you
I wish, I never laid my eyes upon you
Most of all I'll soon forget you
Now that you're gone, Long Gone.

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.
