about

Shattervox Toronto, Ontario

Shattervox kick out the jams with muscular classic rock flair. With a sound so minimal it's monumental, Shattervox's first single "Grand Mal Seizure" carries on the tradition of 60's garage rock and proto-punk acts. Much like their live performances, the debut album "Before There Was No After" carries with it a sense of palpable tension - a nervous energy with a message. ... more

Track Name: She's A Mess
OOOOwwwww! Look at you!

You're such a mess! You’re Such a mess!
With your big wild hair and your skintight dress
You were gonna be such a big success

You're such a mess You’re Such a mess!
With a spoon up your nose and a stain on your dress
All dressed up trying to look your best,

CHORUS:
You're a mess, you're a mess
You're a victim of excess
Would you be so kind?
Could I blow your mind?
You're a mess, you're a mess
Can I look up your dress?
Would you be so kind?
I didn't think you'd mind

You're such a mess! You’re Such a mess!
You're such a mess! You’re Such a mess!
Now you’re stumbling to the door and
Now your passed out on the floor just like a dirty mess

CHORUS:

You're drunk, you're stoned,
You're totally plastered,
You're a plane crash,
You're a walking disaster,
You're an accident waiting to happen …
You’re a walking disaster
A walking disaster
A walking disaster
A walking disaster

CHORUS:
Track Name: Grand Mal Seizure
Went down to the store
Crashed on through the door
Fell down on the floor
Screamin’ ‘More! More! More!’

Chorus:
It’s just a grand mal seizure
Another grand mal seizure
What if your grandma sees ya
Havin’ a grand mal seizure
Oh Yeah!
Oh Yeah!

Gonna take a train
Gonna take a jet plane
Can’t control my brain
Think I’m goin’ insane

Chorus:
It’s just a grand mal seizure
Another grand mal seizure
What if your grandma sees ya
Havin’ a grand mal seizure
Oh Yeah!
Oh Yeah!

What’s the matter with the world today?
There ain’t no violence in Rock n’ Roll!
I don’t care what the people say …
Gonna get a little out of control
Get a little out of control
Get a little out of control
Out of control, Out of control

Going to break down, it’s the end of the world
Going to break down, it’s the end of the world
End of the world, End of the world …
Track Name: Angels Don't You Cry
‘A’ is for Angelina, ‘B’ is for Bumbelina
‘C’ is for see my angels cry
‘D’ is for nervous Daddy, ‘E’ is for everything he feels when he sees you the first time
‘F’ is for feeling fear for ‘G’ the girl who spilled the tears to make ‘H’ what is happening so fine
These are the ABC’s that God spilled all over me the day that you came into our lives

So angels don’t you cry
I’ll sing a lullaby
Reach up to the sky
Grow your wings and fly....

‘1’ is who I was for so long until your mother proved me wrong and made me see that ‘I’ was ‘we’
We were only ‘2’ whose love just grew until we knew we wanted so much more that we should become ‘3’.
‘3’ turned into ‘4’ that day you walked into the doorway and then our home of 2 become a family.
These are the 123’s that God spilled over me the day you came into our lives

So angels don’t you cry
I’ll sing a lullaby
Reach up to the sky
Grow your wings and fly....

‘A’ is for Angelina, ‘B’ is for Bumbelina,
‘C’ is for see your Daddy cry
Track Name: Mary Ellen Baker
I see clouds of white so fair
Entranced in beauties stare
I feel warmth from eyes so blue
As your love comes shining through
Will you remember me?
As I remember you
Has your spirit been set free
My love for you is true

Sky Blue and Silver
Golden Sun and Treasures
Green Fields forever
Mary Ellen Baker

Now the day turns into night
And your moon is shining bright
And it’s tilted such a way I know tears on the way
Will they every understand
The strength at your command
The answer seems so clear
But their clouds are dark with fear

Sky Blue and Silver
Golden Sun and Treasures
Green Fields forever
Mary Ellen Baker

Yesterday seems oh so long…
Seasons change tomorrow’s song

Today…
Live For Today….

Sky Blue and Silver
Golden Sun and Treasures
Green Fields forever
Mary Ellen Baker
Track Name: The Ballad Of The Fringe
I’m a snowsquall I’m a blinding rain, Coming down on the 4th of July
I was born in the eye of a hurricane, On a dark September night
I’m a phoenix rising from the ashes, You can’t keep a bad man down
So put out the garbage and lock up your doors, I’m coming to your town!

They Call me the Fringe! I’m your midnight man!
I’m the Fringe! I’ll spread your jam!

I’m persona non grata in this town, That don’t mean nothing to me
I’m public enemy #1 in the twenty-first century
So come on ladies, step right up, Get it while you can
I’m seven numbers running wild, Don’t you understand?

They call me the Fringe! I’ll lay you down!
I’m the Fringe! Underground!

Look out your window, What do you see?
Is it your biggest nightmare? Or is it me?
Look out your window, What do you see?
Am I your biggest nightmare? Or just a dirty dream?
Track Name: Blood On The Stone
We’re digging in the dirt for the western world,
For the twinkle in the eye, for the love of the girl,
We do it for the fortune and we do it for the fame,
But it only brings us sorrow, and it only brings us shame.

Blood on the Stone, Blood on the Stone,
Shattered dreams and broken bones
Blood on the Stone, Blood on the Stone,
Shattered lives and broken homes

Digging in the pits with the sun in my eye,
Just the other day I watched a man die,
He put his hand in his pocket and they shot him in the back
They the told the cops it was a heart attack

Blood on the Stone, Blood on the Stone,
Shattered dreams and broken bones
Blood on the Stone, Blood on the Stone,
Shattered lives and broken homes

Was it for the blood? Or was it for the money?
Only the killer knows why.
He puts his guns on the ground and he falls on to his knees
Drops his head and starts to cry…

Blood on the Stone, Blood on the Stone,
Shattered dreams and broken bones
Blood on the Stone, Blood on the Stone,
Shattered lives and broken homes

What are we fighting for?
What are we fighting for?

I’m on the streets of New York and I’m trying to find the man,
I got the world in my pocket, and I got blood on my hands,
Well it sparkles and shines and its all that I own,
And the jeweler don’t care if there’s blood on the stone

Blood on the Stone, Blood on the Stone,
Shattered dreams and broken bones
Blood on the Stone, Blood on the Stone,
Shattered lives and broken homes

What is the fighting for?
Is it a symbol of love?
What is the killing for?
Is it a symbol of love?
What is the dying for …… ?
Is it a symbol of love? [break]
A SYMBOL OF LOVE !!!!!!!!
Track Name: Before There Was No After
Alive I cried! Just like a suicide,
Like the feelings I keep caged inside,
I’m alive, I’m alive! You know I almost died,
Like the dirty little sins that I just can’t hide

Like a skintight bitch, Like a seven year itch,
Like the new improved brand that’ll make you switch
I said I wanna be rich! I wanna make the big pitch.
I want to dig my life outta the ditch.

Before there was no after …
Down below, where there is no above,
I’m inside where there is no outside
And I’m wondering just what the hell I was thinking of?

I said “Hey Man! What are you waiting for?”
Put your hands in the air, get down on the floor
Do you wanna get shot? Then give me all you’ve got!
I’m gonna run run run and never get caught … oh no

Before there was no after …
Down below, where there is no above,
I’m inside where there is no outside
And I’m wondering just what the hell I was thinking of?

Now I’m locked in a cage, can you feel my rage,
Now my life’s in the gutter like a torn up page.

I tried to live my life like there was no tomorrow,
Why did I have to throw it all away?
I was living before there was no after,
Now I’m stuck on the inside everyday…

Before there was no after …
Down at the bottom, where there is no above,
I’m on the inside and I’m looking outside
And I’m wondering just what the hell I was thinking of?
Track Name: Lady Of The Night
I’ve been watching you from afar
In the cool dark night driving in my car
I ain’t too sure you got nothing to fear
Baby let me whisper in your ear

Lady of the night, Looking oh so tight
Come on over here, Make me feel alright
It’s alright! Yeah …. Ohhhhhh!
Yeah …. Ohhhhhh!

Lady on the street, Looking oh so sweet
You’re my midnight treat, Climb in my backseat
So …. I…. can show you … the kind of man I am
Yeah … Ohhhhhh!

Now I see you looking at me
The hunter is now the hunted it’s plain to see
I can feel the chill running cold and black
As you dig your heels into my back!

Is it infatuation? What is this new sensation?
You got me in your sights and now I’m coming for you

Lady of the night, Make me feel alright
Come on over here, Whisper in my ear
Yeah … Ohhhhhh! (ad lib and Fade)
Track Name: My Love Is A River
My love is a river
Yeah it rolls and it bends
Deep and silent keep on flowing
Oh the river, it never ends

I have loved you for a long time
Ever since I was a child
Deep and blue cool clear water
It’s what I need to keep me alive
Baby you keep me alive

River river, deep and wide
Will you stay by my side?
Though I stand in one place,
You keep changing ... changing

How deep is the river?
Nobody really knows
How deep is my love?
Only you will ever know
Only you can ever know

Though I stand in one place,
You keep changing ... Changing
Is my love deep enough for you to stay?
Or will I just wash away?

My love is the river
Shining in the pale moonlight,
If you want my love,
Meet me down by the riverside

Go down to the River
Let it wash you away
Let my love calm you
Let it carry... you away
Let me carry you away

River river, deep and wide
Will you stay by my side?
Is my love deep enough for you to stay?
Or will I just wash away?
Is my love deep enough for you to stay?
Or will I just wash away
Track Name: Ocean Swirl
I’ve been thinking about the words you spoke,
Can’t help feel I’ve just awoke,
From a bad dream I felt was real,
How sick the truth has made me feel.

Self confidence is replaced with shame,
The sky’s mirror reflects our blame,
Innocence is lost as it should be,
To face all our children’s destiny.

History does not repeat itself it rhymes,
Truth reflects generations time,
Words become riddles so obscure,
Does destiny mean energy unfurled?
The world becomes an ocean swirl.
The world becomes an ocean swirl.

We pollute the media with lies,
Mother nature doesn’t compromise,
She won’t negotiate gain or loss,
How much does perfection cost?

Are we so absorbed in our own worlds?
Have we lost the truth in an ocean swirl?
As ice melts earth is swept away,
For our ambition everybody pays

History does not repeat itself it rhymes,
Truth reflects generations time,
Words become riddles so obscure,
Does destiny mean energy unfurled?
The world becomes an ocean swirl.
The world becomes an ocean swirl.

Godspeed you your noble quest,
Opponents who mock are not worth the jest,
Desert sand runs through the hour glass,
I pray courage please correct the past,

For those who dare neglect their fate,
We need more who want to procreate,
The hands of time are aging fast,
The winds of youth search for their mast,

History did not repeat itself it rhymed
Their truth depends on what we do this time
Words are still just riddles so obscure
Our destiny is energy unfurled
The world is now an ocean swirl
The world is now an ocean …
