Manipulation 04:29
You are her favorite possession Fits you like a jacket so tight Wrapped around your insurrection Until you’ve lost your fight manipulation you crossed her like an ocean landing on a distant coast object of her devotion couldn't love you any more manipulation manipulation

we have our moments our memories but we can't hold us except in our dreams we have nothing one thing for certain this isn't a thing exposed to the sun we're evaporating we have nothing nothing to venture nothing to gain nothing but empty picture frames nothing to see here just move along looking for something but something went wrong we have nothing we have a future our plans and our schemes but no possession of people or things we have nothing You have decided To leave me or not When we’re together Look what we’ve got We have nothing nothing to venture nothing to gain nothing but empty picture frames nothing to see her just move along looking for someone but something went wrong we have nothing nothing nothing nothing

Astro Van 03:47
Things are not going according to plan don’t look so good from where I stand spending money I don’t have Just to sleep in my own bed Tell the roommates goodbye Throw it all in the van and drive Take a wrong turn down that road I’ve got nowhere else to go Now I’m living in the Astro Van This was supposed to be the back up plan Now I need a place to park tonight Feels like I’m giving up without a fight Found a mattress on the street Underpass to get out of the heat I will rent a room when I can But now I’m living in the Astro Van It looks like she needs some love Now windows are fogging up She thinks my van is kinda hot Just wait ’til the sun comes up Now she’s living in the astro van THis was supposed to be a one night stand She said “I need a place to crash tonight” She didn’t think she’d fall into this life Couch surfing for such a long time Just need a place to call yours and mine Don’t think her parents will understand Why she’s living in the Astro van

No I don't believe in luck No I don't believe in circumstance no more Accidents never happen in a perfect world So I won't believe in luck I saw you walking in the dark So I slipped behind your footsteps for a while Caught you turning 'round the block Fancy meeting in a smaller world After all accidents never happen Could have planned it all Precognition in my ears Accidents never happen in a perfect world Complications disappear Now you love me I yeah I can tell I never lied I never cried And you, you knew so well Like the Magi on the hill I can divinate your presence from afar And I'll follow you until I can bring you to a perfect world Accidents never happen in a perfect world Accidents never happen

Freak House 05:06
Did you see her roll her eyes all the way back in her head? i didn't see that coming oh yes oh yes you did Somebody needs a spanking Derek will gladly oblige Heidi would do the honors but but now her hands are tied Nancy is fascinated waiting for her turn she likes to hear the leather crack she wants to feel the burn I just wanna push you to the point of pain then I’m gonna pull you pull you back again I just wanna push you... out there on the dance floor everyone is dressed in black give in to the darkness turn around but you can’t go back key bumps in the bathroom there’s a narc at the door get off your knees girl handcuffs and show you the door I just wanna push you... When you finally leave this freak house at dawn’s early light seeking the cover of darkness like a vampire at the end of the night I just wanna push you to the point of pain then I’m gonna pull you pull you back again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again

invisible wall that stands between 
the moving stairs and silent screams 
invisible wall the we can't climb
 keeps us down and blocks the mind invisible wall that we can’t scale keeps us locked onto the rails 
invisible wall Invisible wall of vacant stares We can’t cross ‘cause we’re unaware Invisible wall that we can’t find It’s right there but we are blind
 invisible wall –keeps us apart
 it’s where I end and where you start 

invisible wall  invisible wall that we can't see
 Makes us feel so incomplete  invisible wall now I can't tell 
are you free or trapped in your cell? 
invisible wall won't let us show
t he dark inside the face you know invisible wall

Hemlock Girl 03:33
I wanna get down with my hemlock girl when she gets back from the underworld i wanna steal away in the dead of night i wanna disappear in the dying light i wanna stare into the haze myopic i wanna get high borderline psychotic i wanna gaze into the scanner darkly i wanna go back to her apartment hunt her down with a poison arrow say goodbye to the straight and narrow I wanna fall down stairs to the bottom fade away into a dream narcotic I’ve been sinking so low there’s not much deeper to go it’s such a long, long way down She’ll never come back around i wanna get down with my hemlock girl spiral stairs into the underworld I want to walk across that bridge at night hold a steel rod in a field of lightning i don’t even want to try to fix her Just paint a dark, cloudy picture

Secrets 03:16
I've got secrets I keep from you
 because you can’t accept the truth
 you know I will never tell
 the whole truth can rot in hell 

i've got secrets (secrets)
 you don’t know (my secrets) 
i've got secrets (secrets) 

I've got secrets. I can't tell you
 Don't know what I'm gonna do
 Eventually you will find out
 And i know you're gonna run your mouth

 

i've got secrets (secrets)
 you don’t know (my secrets) 
i've got secrets (secrets) I'll take this secret to my grave
 where the unknown can be saved 
that's where secrets go to die 
no one knows where who or why

about

The High 70s came to life in the dark Los Angeles clubs, where song writer, Chris Williams, felt the persistent connection to the music of late 70s era, when glam and garage rock turned into punk, new wave and post punk. Iggy, Bowie, Joey, Johnny, Blondie, the Cramps, Joy Division.. the music exploded with dark energy and decadence. The High 70s sound taps this energy and infuses it with stories, real and imagined, of the club goers and rock ’n’ rollers who inhabit this world. A theme that emerged as the songs took shape was the relentless spirit that keeps the dream alive, even when reality takes a dark turn. We try to keep it together, but sometimes the connection unravels. What are ya gonna do but turn it up and rock out? These are songs that deliver personal and shared catharsis.
