about

"Diane, this is Stone Catcherye. Coop lent me the recorder to record some songs we're working on together. Don't know if he's told you before, but he's a damn fine drummer. Also knows how to make a very damn good cup of coffee. We met at an electronic music convention at The Great Northern Hotel. We met in the bar where DDD was giving a mini moog performance. He was wearing this outfit that somehow was glowing like a neon light. I knew instantly that I could work with him. DDD has two right hands and three left feet. He will be on keys and lead guitar. Coop, DDD & I grabbed a table and immediately hit it off, answering each other's sentences. We knew right then that we should write some music together. Cooper said he had a friend from work who played bass, Phillip Jeffries, who was also at the convention but has been known to disappear from time to time. We spent the next week of the convention, ten days actually, not counting travel, jamming late night in Cooper's room. We wrote a song a night, recording it all on this here recorder, Diane. After the week, we met up or emailed each other tracks periodically to re-record the songs with better quality. We also named our band. We're called Keep The Fear
Look forward to meeting you soon Diane.
Cheers!"

Track Name: Sad Girl
I knew a girl who could brighten the sun
I knew a girl who was dark as the moon
I knew a girl filled with gloom

if I'd had known you were sad, I'd had offered my smile

I knew a girl who had known she was bright
I knew a girl who ran circles 'round moons
I knew a girl and most of them do

if I'd had known you were sad, I'd had offered my smile
if I'd had known you were sad . . .

if I'd had known you were sad, I'd had offered my smile

if I'd had known you were sad, I'd have walked away
Track Name: The Secret Of Revenge
don't take my silence . . .
don't take my silence . . .
don't take my silence . . .
for weakness

and you did me wrong now,
oh, but I don't care
you could fill this void with laughter
and meet me there
cure the kids, avoid disasters
own despair
or don't care, or don't care

the best revenge is none at all

and you tasted sweet revenge
but got nowhere
you lashed out while still upset
and acted weird
take a breath and think of action
then think again
or don't care, don't pretend

the best revenge is none at all
keeping them all upon their toes

don't take my silence for weakness
I don't care, I'll slap you the same
don't take my silence for weakness
I don't care, I'll slap you the same
I'll slap you the same
don't take my silence for weakness
I don't care, I'll slap you the same
I'll slap you the same

the best revenge is none at all
keeping them all upon their toes
Track Name: I Want Your Day
what do you care for?
why do you keep score?
bet on yourself

I want your day
I want your ways
to live, to feel, like you . . .

what do you pay for?
when will you want more?
you must invest in yourself

well, I want your day
I want your ways
to live, to feel, like you
I want your day
take me away
to be like . . . .

you have mine
you have yours
drifting off of the course

what do you care for?
why do you keep score?
close that door

I want your day
I want your ways
to live, to feel, like you
I want your day . . .
Track Name: My Happy Ship Is Sinking
didn't you claim you're happy
didn't you claim you're free
didn't you find your dreams

you want happy
you want peace
you want happy
dear, disease
(my happy ship is sinking down)

didn't you say you're selfish
hate's your middle name
and I think you're lame

you want happy
you want peace
you want happy
dear, disease
(my happy ship is sinking down)

I know that you're sinking
but I won't let you drown
I will find higher ground

you want happy
you want peace
you want happy
dear, disease
(my happy ship is sinking down)
Track Name: I Spy Remorse
once upon a time,
I was right by your side, in your head
severed the ties
living with the lies and regret
now I'm despised and treated
just right, like I'm dead

I spy remorse all on your face
I spy discord, discard that hate

now I'm in a land you wouldn't understand
with a degree
I am the man who never has a plan
to retreat
buried in sand right up to my head
at the beach

I spy remorse all on your face
I spy disgust laced with disgrace

I spy remorse all on your face
I spy discord, discard that hate

I spy remorse upon your face
I spy disgust laced with disgrace
Track Name: Call Me If You're Sad
I know your name
I know your ways
I know you've changed
they stayed the same

call me if you're sad!

well I know your pains
I know I'm strange
have faith in change

call me if you're sad!

I'm sad for the world
I'm sad for the girls
I'm sad for everyone
that they elected dumb

call me if you're sad!

I'm sad for the world
I'm sad for the girls
I'm sad for everyone
that they elected numb
Track Name: Consequence Is The Future
Holler Holler
tell me who has got a fucking dollar
a dollar to spare
Pother Pother
everybody's got to fucking bother
bother to care

Holla Holla
if you are a fool that loves the dollar
dollar, be scarce
scholar scholar
have you ever fucking lived in squalor
squalor or shared

if you hate we're gonna love you silly
if you swing, we're gonna sting like a bee
if you prey on the weak, not the willing
conquer defeat

Holla Holla
when they drain the swamp and fucking find you
vacationing there
Dollar Dollar
bend over and I'll fill your mouth with spiders
to serve you four years

father, father
when did all these humans start to falter
and fall to despair
Pother Pother
they can keep their motherfucking dollars
dollars don't care

if you hate we're gonna love you silly
if you swing, we're gonna sting like a bee
if you prey on the weak, not the willing
conquer defeat

don't you ever be afraid
there's enough of us to kill their hate
don't you ever be ashamed
the you you are is better than the they they claim

don't be afraid

if you hate we're gonna love you silly
if you swing, we're gonna sting like a bee
if you prey on the weak, not the willing
we shall react enough to conquer defeat
Track Name: The Power Of Negative Thinking
I wish the worst for you
as bad as one could choose
I hope a black hole comes
and swallows you for lunch

that may not be enough
your kind is kind of numb

all these thoughts I have
they ain't half as bad
all these thoughts I have
they ain't half as bad

I want the least for you
I want to curse your mood
as bad as that may sound
I'd need more to bring me down

or less, if it is you
more for better moods

all these thoughts I have
they ain't half as bad
all these thoughts I have
they ain't half as bad

what is so wrong with the way that you speak
maybe they don't even hear you

all these thoughts I have
they ain't half as bad
all these thoughts I have
they ain't half as bad
Track Name: Please Put My Heart Back In The Jar (on the shelf)
take my heart and leave your hatred
before you come in contact with me

if you're hating,
question why then
what is so bad to you

not jarred and not on a shelf
there's more to the heart than the health

if you're hating,
question why then
what is so bad to you

not jarred and not on a shelf
there's more to the heart than the health

take my heart and heal your anger
before I have to share space with you

if you're hating,
question why then
what is so bad to you

not jarred and not on a shelf
there's more to the heart than the health
there's more to the thief than the stealth

can't you just stop hating?

not jarred and not on a shelf
there's more to the heart than the health
there's more to the thief than the stealth
not loved, not even held
Track Name: I'm Normally Happy
did you HAVE to walk home
every tale is of woe, woe, woe
did you slip on the soap?
did you swallow or choke?

and normally I be Happy
but I don't knnow what that it is about you
you depress the Hell out of me

thought I'm pessimistic
slightly blurry vision
I know what it's like
I've been on your side

and normally I be Happy
but I don't knnow what that it is about you -
you depress the shit out of me

thought I'm pessimistic
you'll still find me bitching
optimists beware
because I don't fucking care

and normally I be Happy

did you have to wake up?
no, really, shut the fuck up
you ain't the only one who's bugged
all hail the smug mug
the dumbfuck

thought I'm pessimistic
slightly blurry vision
I know what it's like
I've been on your side

thought I'm pessimistic
you'll still find me bitching
optimists beware
because I don't fucking care

you depress the fuck out of me

Let me get back to you, in a few . . .
