"THIS IS IT" Bootleg series Nick's Cabaret, Vincent's, Lucky Dog, Beatniks & Palladium

by Ariband



"THIS IS IT": The live bootleg series. All tracks consist of live performances either at venues located in Worcester, MA. After collecting songs over the course of about 3 years, here is a collection of some of the raw material. Some of the dead air and chatter between tracks has been removed, and, in some cases, the shows are left as entire tracks, so the listener can get a feel for the evening as a whole experience. Lot of material on this album. And even a few laughs. RAWK on!

"Inspiration comes in waves
Meditation sets the stage,
change the station, give me somethin' real,
it don't matter, it don't matter how I feel.

Makin love to a dead man
Makin love to a dead man
Makin love to a dead man
In the middle of the night to the words of a dead man.

I fall asleep in the middle of the day,
I hope they hear us when we pray
I'm glad that I met you, how else would i know
Home sweet home, I dont wana lose control.

(repeat chorus)

Got four walls, a roof above my head,
Holy water, got my daily bread, she said,
'Do you wana come over? Im just killin time.'
They say, that love is contagious,
so let me see you smile."

(last chorus)
