The Heist 02:37
The Heist Got a plan, for a scam, the heist of my life All or nothing this time, hope I get out alive Sick of just getting by, ‘bout time I got mine Planned each detail, I won’t fail, it’ll be fine Keep your cool, don’t act a fool, you’ll pull it off Now’s the time, get in line, quit acting soft In a rage, take the stage, now you’re the boss Here you go, now you know, you’ll pull it off Pull it off Pull it off Pull it off Forty two, twenty six, seventy four Cracked the code on the safe hidden under the floor Grabbed the cash in a flash, wow what a score Down the hall, then the stairs, and out the back door Keep your cool, don’t act a fool, you’ll pull it off Now’s the time, get in line, quit acting soft In a rage, take the stage, now you’re the boss Here you go, now you know, you’ll pull it off Pull it off Pull it off Pull it off In the car, not too far, then I’m free and clear Oh no, I’ve been made, police everywhere It’s a raid, can’t escape, unless I dare Risk it all with a crash through the barrier Keep your cool, don’t act a fool, you’ll pull it off Now’s the time, get in line, quit acting soft In a rage, take the stage, now you’re the boss Here you go, now you know, you’ll pull it off Pull it off Pull it off Pull it off Pull it off The heist Pull it off The heist

Crime Doesn't Pay I love to kill and don’t want to stop But lately I’ve been working around the clock My boss is keeping me late again I think I just found my next victim I don't wanna go without a kill today But I'm stuck at work, and there's bills to pay I don't wanna go without a kill today I wish it did, but crime doesn’t pay I’m up to my head in paperwork Another day like this and I’ll go berserk I’m not even supposed to be here today They better not make me work Saturday I don't wanna go without a kill today But I'm stuck at work, and there's bills to pay I don't wanna go without a kill today I wish it did, but crime doesn’t pay I wish my hobby could be my career That way I could kill without any fear I need this job to pay my bills Workin’ for a livin’ makes it tough to kill I don't wanna go without a kill today But I'm stuck at work, and there's bills to pay I don't wanna go without a kill today I wish it did, but crime doesn’t pay Crime doesn't pay

Packed 02:51
Packed Went to a meeting up in the Bronx Cyrus got shot and the Rogues blamed us The cops were all looking to bust our heads I was sure we’d all end up dead With our colors on, there’s nowhere to hide We were down to eight, we started with nine All left wondering if the truce was on Cleon’s order made new warlord Swan Man I wish we were packed We’re gonna have to bop our way back Man I wish we were packed We’re gonna get japped, we’re gonna get japped The Turnbull A.C.s chased us in a bus Made it to the train before they caught us Breezed past some small time clique Much to the chagrin of the Gramercy Riffs The Baseball Furies were the next to fall They made an error and dropped the ball Momentary lapse thinking with our d**** The Lizzies thought they were real tough chicks Man I wish we were packed We’re gonna have to bop our way back Man I wish we were packed We’re gonna get japped, we’re gonna get japped The Rogues said to come out and play We knew we’d finish this here today Swan led them all out to the sand Luther got stuck with a knife in his hand The Riffs got our backs as they should “You Warriors are good, real good” Made it home with our vests on our backs We’re never leaving Coney unless we’re packed Man I wish we were packed We’re gonna have to bop our way back Man I wish we were packed We’re gonna get japped, we’re gonna get japped

They Look Like Us War has come, mankind is stunned Double-crossed, our race is lost Startin' From scratch, we're unevenly matched The odds are against us, man the defenses No one to trust 'cause they look like us No one to trust, they look like us No one to trust 'cause they look like us No one to trust they look like us Condemned to run from our bastard sons Treated like possessions, we've learned our lesson Abort the mission, jump to next system Gonna get crushed, 'cause they're tracking us No one to trust 'cause they look like us No one to trust, they look like us No one to trust 'cause they look like us No one to trust they look like us As of this moment we are at war We won't give in, so say we all We've lost our brothers, but we can't fall They won't die in vain, so say we all So say we all Dradis contact, they're on us now Nowhere to run, F.T.L. is down Launch the vipers, this ends tonight We're not going down without a fight No one to trust 'cause they look like us No one to trust, they look like us No one to trust 'cause they look like us No one to trust they look like us So say we all So say we all So say we all

Me and My Loser Friends I was sitting around bored at home I grabbed the phone, called Tim and Tom Go pick up Joe and meet me at ten Let’s pull some pranks and cause mayhem Driving our cars like battering rams We cruised the town hitting garbage cans Threw a bowling ball through a windshield The driver was pissed, what’s the big deal? Me and my loser friends Me and my loser friends With the next prank we upped the ante We crashed a sorority and raided their panties Then we stopped by the Bronx Zoo Freed a lion from its cage and set it loose Me and my loser friends Getting into trouble anyway that we can Me and my loser friends We went too far and we’ll do it again Me and my friends aren’t very mature What can you expect from four guys on tour Maybe we should grow up and act like men But that’s no fun to me and my friends From this point on things just got worse Rigged a casket to fall out of a moving hearse But the stunt that really took things too far Was when we stole a police car We were arrested and held without bail Me and my friends are stuck in jail I guess we got a little out of control Hopefully next year we’ll make parole Me and my loser friends Getting into trouble anyway that we can Me and my loser friends We went too far and we’ll do it again Me and my loser friends Getting into trouble anyway that we can Me and my loser friends We went too far and we’ll do it again

At The Fight 03:14
At The Fight We packed up our gear and hopped into the van It was late on a Saturday night Headed for the beach ‘cause the boys were bored They had decided that they wanted to fight They wanted us to jam on a couple of tunes To help get them in the mood The Jack went down and the amps went up We could tell these were “some desperate dudes” We played all night (At the fight) Loud until light (At the fight) We had no right (At the fight) Alright, alright The first man down hit the ground with the sound Of a supersonic hurricane All hell broke loose ‘cause they had an excuse To drink some beer and cause some pain As the crowd filled in I gave Cujo a grin There were bodies flyin’ everywhere So we jumped to the ground and ran into the crowd To throw some swings while we were there (At the fight) We played all night (At the fight) Loud until light (At the fight) We had no right (At the fight) But we played all night (At the fight) Loud until light (At the fight) We had no right (At the fight) Alright, alright We packed up our gear and hopped into the van At 7:30 in the hot summer sun The debris that was left was horrible mess You wouldn’t believe that we’d actually had fun We headed for home with a couple of girls Who had come to hang out n’ cheer These Lizzies were hot and they put out a lot You bet your ass we’re playin’ next year (At the fight) We played all night (At the fight) Loud until light (At the fight) We had no right (At the fight) But we played all night (At the fight) Loud until light (At the fight) We had no right (At the fight) Alright, alright

Mash 'n' Burn Red light go no I won’t slow The street is mine to take I’m a rebel in control when I roll Though I’m riding without a brake Bombing the hills is a mighty thrill And a risk all in the same You can’t call time and choose a new line If the speed gets too insane Mash ‘n’ burn Can’t see the pedals churn Moving too quick to see Burn ‘n’ mash I’m not coming in last You’ll never beat me I mark the spot when I skid to a stop Every road I claim as my turf The NYPD can’t keep up with me They can try but they’ll end up hurt We’re just hood rats racing alleycats Taking our lives in our hands A near miss with a bus is the ultimate rush The cops all want our bikes banned Mash ‘n’ burn Can’t see the pedals churn Moving too quick to see Burn ‘n’ mash I’m not coming in last You’ll never beat me My white rimmed wheels are fast and clean And help my pista scream Sugino cranks make it feel like a tank As I ride too fast to be seen The Thomson stem keeps it stiff as it can When I’m pulling up on the bars As I sprint through lights and ride real tight Weaving between all the cars Mash ‘n’ burn Can’t see the pedals churn Moving too quick to see Burn ‘n’ mash I’m not coming in last You’ll never beat me

American Dream Is this what they call the American Dream? Uncle Sam thinks I’m a winner but I’ve never been I don’t have a house with a two car garage The picture that they painted was a total mirage I did four years in college and I thought I was set Instead I’m left with five figures in debt My parents both expect me to have kids But I couldn’t afford to feed ‘em even if I did I don’t want your American Dream I smartened up and realized it’s not as it seems I don’t want your American Dream Didn’t take long to figure it wasn’t for me Monday at the office, boss is screaming again Each day at work it gets more and more lame The tie around my neck would make a great noose I’ll make the knot real tight so it doesn’t come loose I don’t want your American Dream I smartened up and realized it’s not as it seems I don’t want your American Dream It’s not for me American Dream I started this band to help keep me sane The American Dream feels more like a pain I don’t need a house, kids, or a career I just wanna rock, ride bikes, drink beer! I don’t want your American Dream I smartened up and realized it’s not as it seems I don’t want your American Dream It’s not for me I don’t want your American Dream I smartened up and realized it’s not as it seems I don’t want your American Dream It’s not for me American Dream

Big Man with a Gun Caught off guard as I walked inside My life quickly flashed before my eyes I struggled to keep a grasp on my pride As the anger within me began to rise You told me to get down on my knees Do as I say and as I please Put the money in the bag and do it fast I have to be out in 90 seconds flat Big man with a gun Little man in prison Big man with a gun You better hide, you better run You thought you had your heist all planned out But you parked on a street with only one way out You had a gun to your head and you were on your knees It’s not déjà vu; it’s what you did to me Big man with a gun Little man in prison Big man with a gun You better hide, you better run Shoot it! You thought you were a big man with a gun But now you’re doing ten years in prison You’ll be middle aged next time you’re free And you better hope you don’t run into me Big man with a gun Little man in prison Big man with a gun You better hide, you better run Big man with a gun Little man in prison Big man with a gun You better hide, you better run

I've Killed Them All It’s Friday night and the time is right For me to go out and kill Maybe a teen who will fight back and scream Wouldn’t that be a thrill? You may wonder why I make them all cry And enjoy breaking their will I can’t explain but I love the game And I won’t stop until…. I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all When I was young and looking for fun I began to slaughter classmates I was never accused because I always refused To show how much I hate As an adult I still get a jolt Out of using puppies as bait To lure in the girls with the dirty blond curls Like Ashley and Mary-Kate I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all Don’t turn out the lights or spend the night With me if we go on a date I’ll take you to bed then cut off your head And exhibit it on a plate The curfew’s in place and it’s a race To get inside before it’s too late You think that your safe ‘cause their on the case But they can’t stop you from meeting your fate I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all I’ve killed them all

about

Gotham City Mashers Queens, New York

Gotham City Mashers are a "real live bunch" from Astoria, Queens that formed in 2009 by four longtime friends who wanted to make music like the bands they grew up idolizing. If Keith Morris, Joe Perry, Cliff Burton, and Chuck Biscuits created a super group, they would probably sound a lot like Gotham City Mashers. ... more
