about

After being signed to a major label for a year the band decided to produce their own album and release it in typical existential fashion to the silence of the forest AND the trees. Either way it was great to get all the years of writing, recording and touring onto a single album. Although the album was a matrix of the past 10 years, it basically came down to the Box of Stuff incarnation of Andrew Falk, Conrad Williams, Tim Trakh and Dan Gonzalez to make the idea a reality. The album is self financed and self produced and now released on the Internet.

Produced by Andrew Falk/Conrad Williams Engineered by Dave Dunn for Chelsea Street Records and Chelsea Street Entertainment. A labor of love that took over 10 years to write, record and produce.

Track Name: Melrose
MELROSE
Words and Music: C Williams/A Falk - copyright 2001
INTRO: You’re not happy, unless it’s dangerous
VERSE
You don’t pick up new styles, you make the styles
It’s right there on the street, a million miles to Melrose, Melrose
CHORUS
It’s not Hollywood, it’s not Sunset, Sunset
When I kick around and when I go to town oh it’s
Melrose, Melrose
VERSE
Bikini tattoos and motorcycle boots, you’re a slave to fashion and you keep on cashing in on Melrose.
CHORUS
That’s not dangerous…

Lyrics by C Williams

VERSE
See her run, watch him light, look at her she’s as high as a kite
See go down, see go down the highway that….
CHORUS
I don’t want to, I don’t want to go down
VERSE
See go down the pipe, watch it that woman won’t send me all the way
And was she standing with that blue-eyed gentleman? See that road ahead? It’s a long and dark and dusty highway that…
CHORUS
LEAD
VERSE
It’s last night, it’s last year, it’s the same old thing you’ve been wanting, see go down the road, down the highway
CHORUS 3x
Track Name: True Love Survives
You think you got what it takes, but hearts don't heal when they break
you point your finger and say, true love is here to stay, it won't go away
true love survives
now i'm out on a limb, then you ask me back in again
love's a razor that cuts my skin, again and again
true love survives
Track Name: Walking Addiction
WALKING ADDICTION
Music by A Falk, words by C Williams © 2013
VERSE
It’s from a trot to a hop, it’s a hip, hop rock now you’re never going to stop
It kind of grows and you’re getting weak, and it won’t stop now til
You’re face down in the street
CHORUS
It’s a walking addiction
VERSE
Well you’re high and then you’re low, and there’s just one place that it is ever going to go.
It’s not too bad or so to speak, but when you do it day in and out of each and every week…
CHORUS
Then it’s a walk in addiction

VERSE: I fell down, on my knees
Em C C#
Pleading for an answer, an answer

They can’t hide behind their wall
Em C C#
Tyranny will fade and that’s all -B 7x B A G F#

Seasons change, blue autumn, blue autumn
Em C C#
The world gets rearranged, blue autumn, blue autumn
Em C C#
Nothing ever will be the same, time and time and time again

VERSE: Em C C#
I stood up, on my own
Em C C#
And I gave back my destiny
Em C C#
Stranger things have never happened
Em C C#
The future seems all too uncertain

Track Name: Finally Hit the Top
FINALLY HIT THE TOP

Music by Mike Harold, Conrad Williams, Alex McGee, Andrew Falk
Lyrics by Conrad Williams

VERSE
My friends…. they are the light in me

They say…. what I ought to be

When I’m thinking about ids, ego and everyday

My other face, and what they’re saying about my girl

Is you…
CHORUS
Finally hit the top, with she,
Her body hypnotizes me, and I’ve been afraid sometimes
Thinking about other babes
VERSE
They’re… all, up inside my head
They’ll…. be with me when I’m dead
When I’m thinking about ids, ego and everyday
My other face, and what they’re saying about my girl…is you
CHORUS
Track Name: Carnival
CARNIVAL

VERSE
Never do nothing, live to a round old age, let everything happen
Spin you around in space
Going up and down the roller coaster ride 2x
CHORUS: It’s all a carnival, it’s on that carnival
VERSE
Bringing it back now, got space and time and doing it well
What things could happen, the future is none’s to tell
Going up and down the roller coaster ride 2x
CHORUS: It’s all a carnival, it’s on that carnival

Track Name: Badman
BAD MAN
Music by A Falk, Lyrics by C Williams © 2001
VERSE
Darkness falls in Gotham City, down comes inhuman fog
It’s up and down the streets and sidewalks
That nobody ever walks
Now the catwoman’s strong on his mind
That joker’s still in jail
CHORUS
And I’m a bad man, and I’m gonna break your little heart
I’m a bad man, I’ll tear your little world apart
VERSE
Up and down the streets of Broadway, all the guilt and pain
He dons his cape and mask, it’s enough to drive a man insane
Now the catwoman’s cool on the isle, that joker’s on the prowl
CHORUS
Bridge: I’d rather be back home
Track Name: Liar's Club
LIAR’S CLUB
Music/Lyrics by C Williams/A Falk – © 2001
VERSE
Just step in line, you can get it all for a dime
You can sail away and forget everything, everything
CHORUS
Welcome to the liar’s club, welcome to the lie,
Welcome to the liar’s club, the liar’s club, the liar’s club
VERSE
You can’t take it out, and if there’s any doubt
You’ll find that when you come back, nothings changed, nothings changed
CHORUS
Track Name: Every Drop of Life
EVERY DROP OF LIFE
Music and lyrics by C Williams – © 2001
INTRO: Every drop of life 2x
VERSE
His will is very much stronger than anyone I’v ever seen
Like then his hand on the handle sky is blue, the water’s green
He’d say: you can’t have a beer until the first one is in the boat so get up there and tie us to that mangrove. The water’s nice and clear, I’m tightening up the rope, he’d say hurry up! Them snappers are feeding
CHORUS: Every drop of life
VERSE
How he hung on for so long, I never could be that strong
And now I never will forget him, I cry when we play this song
He’d say: you can’t have a beer until the first one is in the boat so get up there and tie us to that mangrove. The water’s nice and clear, I’m tightening up the rope, he’d say hurry up! Them snappers are feeding
CHORUS: Every drop of life
LEAD
