about

Blown Covers. A few years ago, trying to record a rather overly complicated cover version of what is perhaps the most simple and no frills track of all time from Greenday (Time of Your Life), I finally gave up. six months later. What was my hangup? What was causing the dilemma? Why was I not having the time of my life? I have no idea. However...

With this album of cover songs I decided to treat every track in the following manner:

- Once a song is selected, there is no time limit for the recording or mixing process.
- Once the initial track is recorded, I no longer can listen to the original version.

I found that the creative allowance which naturally bowed before me like a ripe virgin priest came so easily when the Gods of AC.DC weren't hovering in my earphones demanding constantly to pay their creative tithing.

I hope you enjoy this album as much as I hated making it.

Oliver

about

The Oliver Moore Band Salt Lake City, Utah

The Oliver Moore Band relies on dark unique messages buried within it's content while snaring you with it's hooks

When defining "tOMB's" genre, be warned: At first listen you might think that your toes are tapping to a corporate backed, non-political\religious\profane infectious pop tune. You would be wrong. tOMB's lyrics have bite and every melody demands your acknowledgement of it's balls.

Track Name: Barton Hollow
I'm a dead man walking here
But that's the least of all my fears
Ooh, underneath the water

It's not Alabama clay
That gives my trembling hands away
Please forgive me father

Ain't going back to Barton Hollow
Devil gonna follow me e'er I go
Won't do me no good washing in the river
Can't no preacher man save my soul

Did that full moon force my hand?
Or that un marked hundred grand?
Ooh, underneath the water
Please forgive me father

Miles and miles in my bare feet
Still can't lay me down to sleep
If I die before I wake
I know the Lord my soul won't take

I'm a dead man walking
I'm a dead man walking

Keep walking and running and running for miles
Keep walking and running and running for miles
Keep walking and running and running for miles

Ain't going back to Barton Hollow
Devil gonna follow me e'er I go
Won't do me no good washing in the river
Can't no preacher man save my soul
Track Name: Let Me Put My Love Into You
Flying on a free flight
Driving all night
With my machinery
'Cause I got the power
Any hour
To show the man in me
I got reputations
Blown to pieces
With my artillery
I'll be guided in
We'll be riding
Given what you got to me

Don't you struggle
Don't you fight
Don't you worry
'Cause it's your turn tonight

Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me put my love on the line
Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me cut your cake with my knife

Like a fever
Burning faster
You spark the fire in me
Crazy feelings
Got me reeling
They got me raising steam

Don't you struggle
Don't you fight
Don't you worry
'Cause it's your turn tonight
Track Name: Motherlode
Some rode in over mountains
Others rode in on the tide
All in search of their fortunes
Hear where the mother lode lies
Hear where the mother lode lies
When our feet are tired we're going to run
In this wilderness we have become Undone

Motherlode

Fevered by this land
Faith in God has ceased
Let the flames be fanned
Spellbound I am released
Spellbound I am released

When our feet are tired we're gonna run
In this wilderness we have become Undone

Poppies through their heads
Drunk off the golden sun ray's
Let this be my death, bed
I know what the Mother Lode, pays
I know what the Mother Lode pays
Track Name: The Unknown Stuntman
For all of us who grew up with Colt Seavers.
Track Name: Blue Skies for Everyone
Spit on the ground, hold your breath
try to scare to scare yourself to death
bury your bones under the dirt
tear your drawers and rip your shirt
stomp your feet in disgust
curse the grey skies if you must
but you'll find when you are done
the blue sky's for everyone
Take up the wine and break your heart
give up the race before you start
drop your drawers and roll around
burn your house right to the ground
go to sleep hit your head
scream until your face is red
but you'll find when you are done
the blue sky's for everyone
blue skies, setting sun
cherry pie, bubble gum
lullabies to be sung
blue skies for everyone
so get right down on your luck
spin your wheels until you're stuck
bring out the blood and let it dry
stick a big needle in your eye
dry your…
Track Name: Fire and Brimstone
I had a dream last night
While I was layin' in my bed
And the whole world was standing still
And the moon was turning red

I saw a sign in the sky
"I have come to set you free"
There's a light, shinin' bright
Shinin' down, down on me

I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down on my head
I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down on my head

I looked around, I saw eyes
I heard a voice say, "Come to me"
I felt a rumblin' beneath my feet
And the whole world was shaken free

Then the sun was standin' still
Everything was dark, but I could see
I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down on my head
I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down, down on me

I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down on my head
I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down, down on me

I looked around, I saw eyes
I heard a voice say, "Come to me"
I felt a rumblin' beneath my feet
And the whole world was shaken free

I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down on my head
I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down, down on me

I saw fire, fire, fire, fire and brimstone
I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down, fire and brimstone
I saw fire, fire and brimstone
Comin' down, fire and brimstone
Track Name: Girl In the Sea
We pulled up the anchor
Waving goodbye to the town that had cradled me
Two weeks now at sea, starting to get to me
I think I'm crazy

(Oohhhhh) There in the water
(Oohhhhh) I'm not scared, but I oughta be

All the legends of old, the stories they told
Schemes are for dreamers, meant nothing to me
Now my disblelief, lay smashed at my feet
'Cause I saw the girl in the sea

Back at the harbor
Still I am swimming with her in my mind
In my Davy Jones' locker
I'll keep my secret where no one can find it

(Oohhhhh) They'd never believe me
(Oohhhhh) I see her so clearly

All the legends of old, the stories they told
The schemes are for dreamers, sweet music to me
I'm lost in a dream, my heart wants to sing
All for the girl in the sea

Each day that goes by, each wave we ride
Seems to remind me it all was a dream
I guess my memory
Got the best of me
This time

(Oohhhhh) The sounds so familiar
(Oohhhhh) What could it be? (What could it be? What could it be?)

All the legends of old, the stories they told
The schemes of the dreamers, sweet music to me
I'm lost in a dream, my heart wants to sing
All for the girl in the sea

All the legends of old, the stories they told
The schemes of the dreamers, dreamers like me
I'm lost in a dream, my heart wants to sing
All for the girl in the sea
Track Name: Shankill Butchers
The shankill butchers ride tonight
You better shut your windows tight
They're sharpening their cleavers and their knives
And taking all their whiskey by the pint
'Cause everybody knows
If you don't mind your mother's words
A wicked wind will blow
Your ribbons from your curls
Everybody moan, everybody shake,
The shankill butchers wanna catch you
Awake

They used to be just like me and you
They used to be sweet little boys
But something went horribly askew
Now killing is their only source of joy
'cause everybody knows...

[Repeat:]

The shankill butchers on the rise
They're waiting till the dead of night
They're picking at their fingers with their knives
And wiping off their cleavers on their thighs
'Cause everybody knows...

[Repeat:]

The shankill butchers wanna catch you
The shankill butchers wanna cut you
The shankill butchers wanna catch you
Awake
Awake
Awake
Awake
Track Name: Over the Edge
Flip the switch and turn the night on
Drop the needle on an old song
Break the ice and pour it my way
Turn the key and light the highway

Lay me down beneath the shadows
Meet me where the wild things grow
Kick the moon and watch it shatter
I don’t mind if it don’t matter

Hanging out
Hanging out over the edge

Endless lines of information
Change the words & change the station
Endless cries of complication
Is anybody even listening?
Track Name: Version Mary
Virgin Mary

...comes on strong
Hold my breath the whole night long
In the place where I don't care
Virgin Mary, take me there

I'll take a chance and climb aboard
The ship that sails unto your shore
You always take the highest road
Always carry the hardest load

I'll take a chance and climb aboard
The ship that sails unto your shore
You always take the highest road
Always carry the hardest load

Virgin Mary,You Make Me Feel...So real

Virgin Mary, snake pit gravy
Only you know how to save me
Rope a dope and rub a dub
Wrap me up in your love

Virgin Mary, where are you now?
It sure would help if you could show me how
To make it through this night alone
All trapped inside these bones

I'll take a chance and climb aboard
The ship that sails unto your shore
You always take the highest road
Always carry the hardest load
Track Name: Ornery Grin
ORNERY GRIN

She's got that little girl smile
Religion's nothing more to her than if you would stay awhile
and with an ornery grin between that gentle smile, she'd offer hope

My cigarette is bent and hanging from her mocking smile
That I'd revise my fiendish way's I know would take awhile
Ambition plans concerning money, hardly seem her style
She's got an open tithe of loving


The way she dines on macaroni
Folds and bites at her bologna
Rocking gently when she sleeps because she knows me
I've got to hold it on, hold it in, never let her down again
Hold it on, hold it in, never let it out she let me in.
Track Name: Ryan Lucas's - No Doubt About It
No Doubt About It
Lyrics by Ryan Lucas

Patience left me here alone
To work some backstreet corner on her own
I miss my baby
There ain?t no doubt about it
Karma is crazy
I have to shout about it
Cause she?s turning tricks to score another fix
Ain?t no doubt about it

Brother please turn away
There is nothing more that you can say
Trouble will always find me
There ain?t no doubt about it
Forget your tender mercy
And all you preach about it
Maybe it?s truth you seek
But the flesh is still weak
Ain?t no doubt about it

Patience is turning tricks to score another fix
Ain?t no doubt about it
And though my heart is sick
True love won?t ever quit
Ain?t no doubt about it
There ain?t no doubt about it
Ain?t no doubt about it
Track Name: Abbie Sea's - Bad Connection
Bad Connection
Abbie Sea

you're looking for a girl
who doesn't step out of her place
well, I don't even know where mine is anymore
you just like the part of me
that doesn't have much dignity
but she doesn't control me anymore


I guess you just caught me at a bad time
I'm a little busy right now

lving' my life

you call and try to box me in
I'm having trouble listening
is this signal strong enough?

sorry we're breaking up
what was that?
I think we have a bad connection
I thought I heard you say
that I'm too bold
I hope that it goes through alright
when I say

I don't have the time
to do everything I'm told
you know


just so you know
I'm about to hang up
I think I've had enough
of your terrible feedback (get it... "feedback"...like on a bad phone connection... lame puns anyone?)

you think that I'll change my mind
Oh, but I've
got someone on the other line
can't you see that
baby, you've just caught me at a bad time....etc.(chorus)

am I talking loud enough?
we're breaking up
