about

Paperboy and the Messengers Vernon, British Columbia

Imagine for a moment that Bo Diddley and Otis Redding are going on a road trip to Chicago, James Brown is bouncin' around in the back seat and Aretha Franklin is threatening to turn the whole car around if they don't settle down. Needless to say Paperboy is not a group that you sit still to enjoy! ... more

Track Name: Extra Extra
Extra Extra read all about it
Track Name: Secular Love
Let's put the truth to bed tonight
and put our lies together
who said that honest was so essentail
didn't know the grounds of our love or it's potential

Let me know how it all worked out for you
I know you won't hate me so much in a year a two
I know some things can never be mended
especially the way that this has ended
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes I get lonely
So lonely
from it all
Sometimes I get lonely
So lonely
from it all

Seein the signs gotta find my way
seein the signs gotta break away
seein the signs gotta find my way
where I belong

Some times I get tired
so tired
from it all
Some times I get tired
so tired
from it all

Seein the signs gotta find my way
seein the signs gotta break away
seein the signs gotta find my way
where I belong

I'm seein the light everyday
I'm gettin closer to what I gotta say
until then
I got nothin left to lose
till then i'll sing these blues

Sometime i get helpless
so helpless
from it all
Sometime i get helpless
so helpless
from it all
Track Name: BIID
I've been floating so many questions
to the surface of her skin
messages unarived
transmission scrambled
somewhere in her ears I sing

She's indicated imperfection
and subtle amendments
to her symetry
I can not deny her
nor can I confine her
from these feelings of relief

Finally some relief
Track Name: Nomenclature
I know I know where my mind is
but never where its goin
I know I know where my mind is
but never how to make it up

I know I know where my heart is
but never where its headed
I know I know where my heart is
but never how give it away

I know I know where my feet are
there walkin out the door
I know I know where my feet are
they can't take anymore

I never know where you are where you are
I only know yer headed down
I never know where you stand where you stand
am I gunna be your man?
Track Name: Job to Do
Got a job to do
Got a job to do
and I'm a see it through

Got a job to do
Got a job to do
and I'm a see it through

Before the sun comes up before the lights are on
Before the moment when the dusk becomes the dawn
I'm already movin at the speed of light
Before the beans are ground
Before the coffees brewed
Before the sun trades its place with moon
I'm already movin at the speed of light

Got a job to do
Got a job to do
and I'm a see it through

Got a job to do
Got a job to do
and I'm a see it through

Hit the street and my pedals take me far
Head fast right across this concrete scar
They call the suburbs
Cars are honkin
Dogs are barkin at me now
As I move past them at the speed of sound

Aint much but its a job
Aint much but its a job
Aint much but its a job
Lace up my shoes and I'm gone

Got a job to do
Got a job to do
and I'm a see it through

Got a job to do
Got a job to do
and I'm a see it through
Got a job to do
Got a job to do
and I'm a see it through
Track Name: Bitch Don' Front
Bright city lights
Got you blinded tonight
If you would take my advice
You can set, set your price

Oh they don't know
Just how far you got to go
Oh they don't know
Just who's in control

You dont have to
Work a nine to five daily grind
you could leave it all all behind
if you listen to these words of mine

Bitch don't you front
Bitch don't you front

(spoken word)

Oh they don't know
Just how far you got to go
Oh they don't know
Just who's in control
Track Name: Murder, Murder, Murder
No heat knows this body of mine
He's taken all the battle it could ever hope to find

Look for me, look for me and i'll be there
In the garden the flower bed thats where I lay bare
Sticks and stones will break my bones but he will only kill me
drag me down the staricase dismember

What do I do now I didn't mean to go this far
I can surely tell I'm gunna pay in spades for this
such a pretty face what a waste what a waste
dig an early grave lay him down lay him down

Sorry officer I haven't heard or seen a thing
your the first to know got you on my speed dial
What kind of monster isn't made of flesh and blood
hope you catch your man I'm sure you will you always do

Got to hide his bones dry dirt and gravel
Throw him in the sea he'll never bother me
Just to kiss his lips O I'd be whole again
If we could trade place I'd do it in a heart beat
