about

We Govern We Los Angeles, California

People say various things about We Govern We.One of their members thinks it's like Cindy Lauper w/ the Killers.Their local paper describes them as Shiny Toy Guns with a BitterSweet.Maybe it's La Roux touring with the Bad Seeds, but it doesn't really matter because how can you pigeonhole a band that, after paying tribute to the Pixies and Placebo, names both Duran Duran and Sigur Ros as influences? ... more

Track Name: Mulligan's Island
I used to walk alone and write
of all the silly things
and the pretty light

I used to lay in fields and feel
watching the clouds disappear

I watched my parents fight and stole
from my brothers happy meal

Jumped from my bed to the open door
Avoiding monsters on my floor

I demand a do-over, do-over
I would like a childhood that's so good
All the fears that I have been feeling
I could watch them fade away

I told stories about werewolves
living in our closets

I had nightmares about tiny witches
chasing me on rockets

I wanted braces so I could feel grown up
in my third grade fantasy

I thought that no one understood
'cept for the crew from Goonies
I demand a do-over, do-over
I would like a childhood that's so good
All the fears that I have been feeling
I could watch them fade away


I demand a do-over, do-over
I would like a childhood that's so good
All the fears that I have been feeling
I could watch them fade away


I demand a do-over, do-over
Track Name: Sunshine
I wait for the day
to come to a close
It’s only begun
a moment ago in this town


The minutes are hours
dusting my bones
Settling here and
there in my soul And this town


Is not what I thought
it’s not what I dreamed
It’s not why I ran
away from myself to this town

Asleep on the floor
a tear in my eye
Reminds me to cry
reminds me to lie to myself


Will I never go
Where the sun Shines


Hating myself
fading away
I ran out of wine
I ran out of time In this town

Asleep on the floor
a tear in my eye
Reminds me to cry
reminds me to lie to myself


Will I never go
Where the sun Shines

solo

I wait for the day
to come to a close
It’s only begun
a moment ago in this town

Asleep on the floor
a tear in my eye
Reminds me to cry
reminds me to lie to myself

Will I never go
Where the sun Shines
Track Name: Punkrocker (Teddybears cover)
You see me drivin' down the street
I'm bored with looking good
I got both hands off the wheel
The cops are comin'

I listen to the music with no fear
You can hear it too if you're sincere

'Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am

I see you stagger in the street
And you can't stay on your feet
And you're fakin' in your sleep
You wish that you were deep

You can hear me laughing to myself
If you could, you would be someone elsep

'Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am

See me die on bleaker street
I'm bored with being God
See me sneering in my car
I'm driving to my star

I'm listening to the music with no fear
You can hear it too if you're sincere

'Cause I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
Well I'm a punkrocker, yes I am
Track Name: Red Rover
Light shines through
Daylight fades
Light shines through
Daylight fades


I am shattered in the evening on the back of the beast
All the ghosts of the future are following me
I run right through my spirit guides
I’m riding high search and hide for you


Light shines through
Daylight fades


When I run I run away from myself
When I shout for joy I leave pride on the shelf
When I spin around we all fall down
Bloody Mary in the mirror stands upside down


Daylight fades
Light shines through


Red rover red rover set love right
Red rover red rover send the right one through
Red rover red rover shed love’s light
Red rover red rover send the right one through

In a game for kids no one else can win
We all fall down in a pile of sin
When I play charades no one guesses my name
My face may change but my heart's the same

Daylight fades

Red rover red rover set love right
Red rover red rover send the right one through
Red rover red rover shed love’s light
Red rover red rover make my dreams come true


Light shines through
Dreams do come true
Light shines through
Daylight...
Track Name: the Chaufferette (Duran Duran cover)
Out on the tar plains,
the glides are moving
All looking for a
new place to drive

You sit beside me,
so newly charming
Sweating dew drops glisten,
fresh in your side

And the sun drips down
bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress,
all shadowy lined
And the droning engine
throbs in time
With your beating heart

Way down the lane away,
living for another day
The aphids swarm up in the
drifting haze

Swim seagull in the sky
Towards that hollow western isle
My envied lady holds you
fast in her gaze

And the sun drips down
bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress,
all shadowy lined
And the droning engine
throbs in time
With your beating heart


Siiiiiiiiiing Blue Silver


And watching lovers part,
I feel you smiling
What glass splinters lie so
deep in your mind


To tear out from your eyes
With a word to stiffen
brooding lies
But I'll only watch you leave me
further behind


And the sun drips down
bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress,
all shadowy lined
And the droning engine
throbs in time
With your beating heart

Sing Blue Silver
Sing Sing Blue Silver

And the sun…
Track Name: Crack in the Back
In life sometimes the wonderful
go under stress and crack in the back
A song as obscure as a whale’s goes
fast away

Hear those echoes being raised
rip my eardrum from my head

I used to roll my wheels on the fast lane
couldn’t tell the bad from the nice
Hey babe join me on my skid ride
on thin ice

See that light passing through
Ice opaque sticks like glue

If time is on your side and helps you
carve your track with huge success
lasting long looking up high
called luck

If space is ample beneath your feet
and you’ve taken the millionth walk in the very
same terrain do you feel proud
sedated as a rock

At first we painted a landscape to ourselves
tricky things kept somewhere else
mountain lines and riverbeds
and a few colors in subtractive sense

Chopped down our childhood trees
bonfired the bench of our first kiss

Baby when i met you it was all
already falling apart
being with you was like pollen to the bee
or maybe meat to the shark

Touch my skin and feel my heart
can you heal the crack in the back
Touch my skin and feel my heart
Can you heal the crack in the back
Track Name: Grey Sea
Thursday evening came and I sang
Dutifully to you
You poured your heartbeat out and smiled
Beautifully blue

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
I can’t love you

The only sun I see
Is from underwater
At the feet of who have been
Could I be another

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
I won’t love you


As the crickets fly
crying out their cry
So dutifully
dark and beautifully

In your ocean
In your ocean
I am drowning
I am drowning
In your grey sea
In your grey sea
Be carried away
Away from me

Solo

In your ocean
In your ocean
I am drowning
I am drowning
In your grey sea
In your grey sea
Be carried away
Away from me


These woods so dark These trees so tall
And I’m on their shoulders Looking down from high above ….Did we grow older?
