about

Love Explosion is a band, or I should say WAS a band, with lots of songs but few musicians to play them. Killer Wail took it upon themselves to perform and record Love Explosion's album, releasing as it as their own first full length record.

All songs originally written by Mike Kaiser, Greg McDaniels, and Craig Hrabal.

Preforming on the record is:

Mike Kaiser: Drums, Guitars, Vocals
Craig Hrabal: Bass Guitar, Vocals

Recorded, Mixed, Mastered, and Plastered at 116 Studios in Martinsburg, WV.


"It'd go off the newsstands in a week if they printed the real truth … [like] a plain picture … a tramp vomiting, man, in the sewer. And next door to the picture, Mr. Rockefeller … Just make some kind of collage, which they don't do. There's no ideas at Time magazine." - Bob Dylan

Track Name: A Reason to Start and Quit
MIKE:
Whoah
The truth is a tramp
Vomiting on the street corner
Whoah
The suffering of innocence
Is how the rich get their riches

CRAIG
It's such a thrill just go outside
These people want me to listen
The state that's feeding me is bring me down
They pull my arm so I'll listen

MIKE
Listen to what they have to say
Cause it's not like they're not behind it all Anyway
We're talking about an arm and a leg
Just like animals we are trained

CRAIG
You never told me that it hurt so good
To be locked up in a prison
Don't you call me Un-American
Cause they won't give a choice

MIKE
It's in our water and every book and newspaper
Taught in every school and spread in every lecture

Find a pill find a medicine
Cause you're real
Because you're dying inside
Cause you need to find a cure before the end
And it's coming sooner than you think
My friend
Track Name: Who Am I To Know?
CRAIG
What you say?
Bout what we're doing
Just want to
Get back there yeah

MIKE
Said I'm tryin to get back
Tryin to get back to when
Things were just how they were when we began

CRAIG
And I don't know
What made you think I..
I'm lying
I'm lying yeah

MIKE
And mothers
Never tell their fucking lies
But you know I've never been her favorite child
And everybody thinks they know what is good for us all

CRAIG
Just tryin to get back there

MIKE
And you are just tryin to get back up against the wall

CRAIG
Just tryin to know
Who am I?
If I can't say
What's on my
What's on my mind

MIKE
My mind is turned against me for the worst
Can't control my thoughts
Yeah I swear I am cursed

CRAIG
Why won't you listen to me girl?

MIKE
She's listening but she just don't give a fuck
She's out of her luck and I..

CRAIG
I'm lying to you
MIKE
I'm lying to you girl and there is no excuse
CRAIG
I'm lying to you baby
MIKE
I'm lying to you and for what
There is no use
CRAIG
I'm lying to you girl
MIKE
When you think that I have been around
CRAIG
And I don't even know you
MIKE
It's all been a lie cause I have been in another town
CRAIG
Who am I?
Track Name: She's Packed Her Bags
CRAIG:
Motions
Are so brutal
She's moving around on me baby
She's moving
That's alright

Hey girl where you goin with that
Suitcase and that money
She said I'm goin to Nevada to find my way

She'll probably catch a movie
And won't see the whole picture
Cause she never saw anything
When I was with her
At least she never got the picture

Why don't you just
Step back in the door
Cause I'm a loser with no
Self respect baby
And I need you
I need you

There you go again with that moving...
Track Name: We Build Them Monuments, They Tear Us Down
CRAIG:
Fighting for a place
To fucking die out
I just want I want
I want to shout it out
I don't think that we
Can survive it
Especially not when you demonize it, yeah

MIKE:
Don't think that we
That we know
What's happening
To busy watching screens
While our future's getting fucked financially
Never liked money
Never played the game
Let it destroy itself
It's all the same
To me Cause I'm not based on greed
This democracy's brought a demon on me

CRAIG:
They're taking all our food and our money
Don't you remember when days were sunny
I'm a man
With methods and madness
They'll find a way just to take it back, yeah

MIKE:
Free to be
Free to be dumb
Not even birds are free from our pollution
Who's to say
What's black and white
Or right from wrong
Perception's a bitch
Know where I'm coming from?
It's different from you
It's different from me
It's different from our version of what is free
Hypocrisy
Then I'll fly away from this place
It'll just be you and me
Track Name: Shell-Shocked
CRAIG
There's so much that I should say
MIKE
But I said enough already so I'm tryin to get back to
CRAIG
Back to everything I didn't do yeah yeah yeah
MIKE
But I didn't know what was real and what was the truth

MIKE
Mother's hold your children close
CRAIG
I screamed out I'm shell-shocked
MIKE
Cause it's comin and it don't discriminate
CRAIG
I can't feel my face
MIKE
No bother lookin backwards cause it's all around
CRAIG
I'm sorry we're so gone
MIKE
Look to the sky when we're here on the ground

CRAIG
I've got to tell you I am lying to you
MIKE
Been lying for long now baby
CRAIG
You're searching for a reason
But I'm a deceiver
Get out get out get out
MIKE
Been tryin to find a way to get out
But i'm lost in these corridors now

MIKE
Mothers hold your children close
CRAIG
Why don't you take a look in the moor
MIKE
Cause it's comin and it don't discriminate
CRAIG
Cause you're lyin to me too
MIKE
No bother lookin backwards cause it's all around
CRAIG
And I'm wrong and I'm wrong and I'm wrong
MIKE
Look to the sky but we're here on the ground
