about

Scott Crawford New York, New York

Scott Crawford makes music sometimes. It's of varying quality (vetting it as it was being uploaded made that pretty painfully clear), but people still ask him about it, so he's making it available here. It's essentially free, but if you feel like being a fucking champion and giving him some cash for it, that'd be awesome, too. ... more

Track Name: Love Life And Sign
love life and sign
she finds me
chase all the pain
away

breaking the waves
behind me
nothing else feels
the same

heaven or hell
i’ve been there
hadn’t a care
in the world

win or you lose
just ain’t fair
can’t stay away
from the girl

give me your hand
i’ll show you
a shower of orchids in the sky

don’t walk away
i know you
love you until
i die

die
Track Name: Something True
well I’m nearing the edge
and I don’t know what the fuck to do
‘cuz all I want is something true
just a sign this old man isn’t through

but I’m bored with everything
I don’t know what to sing
I haven’t got the game to bring
would you set fire to my broken wings

spinning heads and flashing lights
will this be like every night
breaking me down and destroying my faith
do good things come to those who wait

now I’m down on my hands and knees
my heart’s pissing razor blades
wasn’t I supposed to have it made by now
all my wildest dreams betrayed

still I scratch and I claw and I bleed
my spirit is black and blue
as I dig through the wreckage for something true
and I wanna believe that I’m lookin’ for you

something true
do I want you
are we through
is it true
tell you what I want

I want nothing
I want something true
I’m having trouble separating the two
and I came and I saw and I came again
I got too much time on my hands

I’ve got nothing
to offer you
nothing else but something true
but if you’ve got the strength to believe what I say
then I’ll bring you the world at your feet every day
Track Name: The Scott Crawford Show
I’d like to welcome you
the strangers and the ones I know
get closer to the stage
there’s nowhere else to go
the planets are aligned
we’ve finally sunk this low
you’ve waited years for this
it’s time now for The Scott Crawford Show

forget your conscience, girl
relax and let it flow
you’ll be more comfortable
once you take off your clothes
this is my universe
and I’ve wrapped it all up in a bow
just stare at the stars on the ceiling
they’re part of The Scott Crawford Show

so now you know the score
the ducks are in a row
you’d better stand back, folks
‘cuz she’s about to blow
is he for real or is he kidding
I don’t even think he knows
pathetic spectacle
oh man, I love The Scott Crawford Show
Track Name: Puppet
I'm a puppet
Pull my strings
Do you like the way I shake that thing?
Wanna take you for a little ride
Don’t you worry
I won’t come inside you

Everybody thinks I’m quite insane
Me, I think they’re rather inhumane
Watch the way they rip each other apart
It makes great television…but is it art?

Just like all the others, you will outgrow me
Always looking, like a fool, for what will set you free

Puppet in a pile of misfit toys
Fading signal in a sea of noise
Shards of my predecessors in my feet
Still expecting me to keep the beat

The show is over now
The laughter fades
It was an ugly little masquerade
No idea what tomorrow will bring
I want to follow you
Can’t cut my strings

When you close your eyes, and you look away
It may sound like “go to hell”, but I’m begging you to stay

I’m begging you to stay
I’m begging you to stay
I’m begging you to stay
Please don’t go away

Aw, c’mon, don’t you wanna play?
Track Name: Obsolete
I used to be a novelty
paranoid child
when aggression was in fashion, drove the little girls wild
They evolved, outgrew “the truth”, but I remained the same

So you’re tired of “reality”?
The Man has heard your cries
gave you cookie cutter demigods with anime eyes
“cute and fully poseable, vapid and disposable”
never be a man like the bastard I am

Can you take me to a time
when opinion ain’t a crime
and the girls will spread their legs for a ringing voice of anger?

Clarity is gone
it’s rebellion.com
and there’s no place in this world for a ringing voice of anger

And I still remember honey on your body and mine
chains were holding us together, but for once, it felt fine
we’re different people now, but some things never go away, yeah

Well, the word came down from heaven
I’ll be going on trial
gonna try to euthanize me, evidence of denial
“Let’s put him on a stage and see just how much he can take;
make him pay for all his actions, make him live with his mistake”

Can you take me to a time
when opinion ain’t a crime
and the girls will spread their legs for a ringing voice of anger?

Clarity is gone
it’s rebellion.com
and there’s no place in this world for the voice of truth

I want to spill my guts on you
make you all feel just like I do
You like your martyrs saccharine sweet?
My way of life is obsolete

Nobody wants me, it eats me alive
and I am so out of focus, I feel like I’m blind
Been through five years of heartache, and 10 years of lies
and I’m just so broken up inside

Will the world ever listen to anyone sane?
I wish someone would douse the fire in my brain
At the end of my rope, as I choke on my pride
and I’m just so goddamn dead inside

Can you take me to a time
when opinion ain’t a crime
and the girls will spread their legs for a ringing voice of anger?

Sanity is gone
It’s a fucking atom bomb
and there’s no place in your world for the voice of truth

I want to kill myself for you
make you all bleed just like I do
and though your gods will taste defeat
my fucking life is obsolete

my fucking life is obsolete

my fucking life is obso-
Track Name: Tonight
it’s not always black or white
the difference is only slight
in a world that isn’t right
lick my fucking ass tonight

lick my fucking ass tonight
tonight
lick my fucking ass tonight, oh

darling, don’t put up a fight
I just want to take a bite
you make my whole world seem bright
lick my fucking ass tonight

lick my fucking ass tonight
tonight
lick my fucking ass tonight
in a world that isn’t right
lick my fucking ass tonight

on the loneliest of nights
maybe I am too uptight
you make my whole world seem bright
lick my fucking ass tonight

lick my fucking ass tonight
tonight
lick my fucking ass tonight
in a world that isn’t right
lick my, lick my, fucking ass tonight

lick it tonight
lick it tonight
lick it tonight
lick it tonight
