about

Vintage Kicks Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"The Philly via Jersey outfit Vintage Kicks seem to be somewhere in between post and pop punk with their loose yet hasty jams. They have catchy stop time choruses ala The Strokes and vocalist Alex Marlys sounds, at moments, eerily similar to Philly veteran Alec Ounsworth (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Flashy Python)."

Track Name: King Geek
1. KING GEEK
Music: Penny*, Banger

God that kid is a freak! (Won't speak..)
He's got a face like a fountain, and a heavy-metal mountain physique
And would you look at that beak! (Won't speak!)
The kid is standin in the corner, just competing for the thrown of King Geek...
(all week...)


[The boy jumps on the teacher's desk, shocking his classmates.]


"All the King of the Geeks!
Don't speak!
Gonna teach you a lesson!
Got the answers to the questions you seek!
YOUR WEAK!
Ya, think I'm begining to peak?
Don't speak!
The weak will be burried,
and the geek shall inherit the meak.
AND YOUR WEAK!"
Track Name: Absolutely Crazy!
2. ABSOLUTELY CRAZY
Music: Jeff Bang*, Penny*, Walter

"OK! OK!"

Sorry for the sorrow
Sorry that I say
that there's no tomorrow
But there's no today!
And there's no one saying
"OK! OK!
Well there's no tomorrow
only for today!"

So let's try to stay on track
Though It's all truly built to spill
Like those fucks at goldman sachs!
Oh God, I really want them killed...
No don't tell me to relaX!
Oh say "Hey, man just chill
Be like "you ignore the facts"
slippin twenty dollar bills
i can't do that...

This is absolutely crazy!
Oh, this ever-growing greed
never ceases to amaze me!
We allow them to procede!
They are positively backwards;
Watch it grow then plant the seed.
This is absolutely crazy!
If we cut them they will bleed!
I promise!

Think you're just a bunch of bitches
I THINK YOUR JUST A BUNCH OF BITCHES!
Track Name: Iron Fist
3. IRON FIST
Music: Penny*

And how did it come to this?
They rule us with an iron fist.
we're just a number on their list,
and we're not even all that pissed...
Nope.

And how did it come to be?
They shit on us and we agree...
Your just a pawn that they enlist.
Your just another statistic.

I know
that it
would be
alright
if we
could just
man-up
and fight.
Stick to
the sha
dows. thank
the night.
My mic!
My knife!
My sniper right!

and we dont even lift a thumb
i only wanna know how come?
and we dont even lift a thumb
a holy shit we're fuckin dumb!...

you're just another statistic...
they rule us with an iron fist
Track Name: Jetty Jump
4. JETTY JUMP
Music: Penny, Honey, Walter, Banger


Nobody; Not nobody...

Not nobody can tell you
cause they don't even know
how to unscrew a light bulb
when it won't even glow...
Do you welcome the darkness?
Is there nothing to show?
Not no fuckin guitar
is gonna fuck up my flow!

Don the concrete, and jump in the ocean!
(There's your notion...)

But an ocean of passion,
or conviction, or proof.,,
An ocean of something...
while you still have some youth!

(To Tell you the truth!)
Don the concrete, and jump in the ocean
of devotion!

I--
got neutralized;
Been ostracized
for tryna re-awaken God
Don't trust the guy!
Don't justify
the indecisions in your mind.
What are you doing?!
What are you doing?!
(Dude he don't even know...)
Got neutralized;
Been Ostracized
for trying to get off in good time!
(Tryna get off in good time...)

(So I'm)
Gonna don the concrete, and jump in the ocean of devotion
Don the concrete, and jump in the ocean
There's your notion...
(I wanna do that again)
Track Name: Egos Landed
5. EGOS LANDED
Music: Penny*, Walter, Dr. Bang


Alright!
OK!
Come on man... Get on top of it...
Spoilin your time? I don't give a shit.
That's nowhere near legit!
We called you out, and you called the quits.
Lack of effort was flagrant
The void vows of a vagrant
Plotting for his life's next segment
Never knowing what to beg meant!

Now your stranded,
and we're not sorry.
You demanded... (Entirety)

He don't know, He don't know, He don't know...
This is not the insert-your-name show!
He don't know, He don't know, He don't know...

Hide the Cheetos, und hide the weed
the fox's libido knows how to succeed
with that douchebag swag und racist beliefs
get that grin off your fucking face (BOOM)
hide the Cheetos,
the Doritos and Fritos,
the weed-filled burritos,
the kid's got no credos...
He knows
he's mosquitoes,
dressed in tuxedos,
waitin for the big one to go BOOM! (BOOM!)

now your stranded,
and were not sorry
egos landed!
And all that plannin,
and all those stories,
got you stranded...
Entirely...
We're tired, G!
Track Name: Threshold
6. THRESHOLD
Music: Penny*, Celebrity Drugz*, Dr. Bang


I can't feel my face
hit the ground
kinda like the taste
kinda dig the sound
that it kinda makes
KINDA LOVE IT

The calling's enthralling like falling
It's telling, compelling me what to say
It's showing, and growing inside my brain!
Been doing in all day!

Facing away from town
GOD i hate this place!
i think i'll leave right now!
GOTTA LOVE IT

The calling's enthralling. I'm falling.
It's telling, compelling me what to say.
It's showing, and growing inside my brain!
Been doin it all day!

The calling's enthralling, I'm falling
It's telling, compelling me what to say
It's showing! It's growing inside my brain!
It does it in all ways
Track Name: Town Drunk
7. TOWN DRUNK
Music: Penny*, Dr. Bang


"OH!
I meant, AH!
No I didn't mean that at all.."-JC

I got plenty of reasons (HEY) to make like the seasons, and vacate the region. (HEY)
But I pretend (I Pretend) that I'm seasick.. or paraplegic.. these moves are strategic.. (YUP!)
Sure I'd love (I'd LOVE!) to chase the sun, (SUN)
but I can't turn and run (RUN) when there's work to be done. (NO!)
But I've got plenty of reasons..(Sons) (Tons)

ONE...
TWO..
Oh, and FOUR!
No more!

Well I've seen prettier pieces on Judas than Jesus in my senior thesis!
Then I lost plenty of bird seed in me VS. New Jersey.. now they got me working.
Sure I could bail on my fines! So close to the speedline (HEY! HEY!) I could leave anytime..
Yeah, I've got plenty of reasons!

FIVE!
SIX!
Six?
SIX!!!

I GOT IT!
The list is in my wallet. Keep it deep in my back pocket.
I'M NOT IT!
Not the one to flaunt it.. and no I'm not gonna vomit!
I!
I don't care if you don't see that I deserve a trophy, but I need you to know me!
I GOT IT!
The list is in my wallet, keep it deep in my back pocket.
(HEY! HEY!)
(HEY! HEY!)
Track Name: Blood Boogie
8. BLOOD BOOGIE
Music: Penny*, Banger, Walter, Marlys


"Look out! Here comes Crazy Ed!
Ghost under water, don't lose your head!"
Too late.. and the waves are all red..
Guess i should relay the last thing you said..

"I swear I'll see you in the morning. Now let me go!
Land-living's just so boring! You oughta know..
Ill be ok.."

Oh well.. How's hell?! Ya well fed?
Can't believe a surfboard made ya all dead..
And to think, if you'd stayed in bed
you'd still have a head, but ya boogied instead!

"Tell Rivers that i'm sorry..and "Oh-E-Oh,
I look just like Bob Marley stubbing his toe.
Our deaths we're just so gnarly! Didn't you know?
We feel no pain!"

"Tell Rivers that i'm sorry..and "Oh-E-Oh,
I look just like Bob Marley stubbing his toe.
Our deaths we're just so gnarly! Didn't you know?
We feel no pain!"
Track Name: Naked In Heaven
9. NAKED IN HEAVEN
Music: Penny*, Banger


When I saw you naked in heaven (in heaven)
I needed to scrape up my jaw.
And not just cause your an eleven, (eleven)
but because you were there at all..
I.. need.. is.. proof..
that you were good!
Give.. me.. the.. truth..
Why'd they let you in?
Cause you sin.
I've seen it..
Woah Ho, a reason...
How'd you get in?
I need it...
GO!

How did you make it to heaven?
There isn't a pure enough pond...
Or did my god made an exception
"OMEGA LIKES HIS ANGELS BLONDE!"

I fuckin knew it!
I loudly fuckin boo it!
Your former and your afterlife are nowhere near congruent!
Yet your a shoe in!
You probably fuckin blew him!
Eternity is ruined all because they let you in!

And I don't even know!
And I don't even know!

I saw you naked in heaven...

Well of course you made it to heaven
there is not a need for such awe
of course my god made an exception
I'm surprised that you died at all!
Track Name: Gimmie Gimmie
10. GIMMIE GIMMIE (Green's Disease)
Music: Penny, Dr. Bang

"Gimmie all your money! Wanna buy a kangaroo...
Gimmie shotgun. Oh, and a ride to the zoo...
Gimmie all the things that I'd never give you...
And can you give them to me without the attitude?
Let me get a van... let me get a loft with a view...
Gimmie a record deal! (so i can get a tattoo...)
If we can't get Rick Rubin, Rick Ocasek'll do...
What's so fuckin funny? Someone fucking fund me!"

"Cause I'm Legit, Man!
G-G-Gimmie all of it..."

You just don't get it do ya?
NO! You just don't understand...
No one'll give it to ya.
"PLEASE! GOD! DAMN!"

Sixty thousand dollars and a history degree
later, I'm a waiter... Want some Parmesan cheese?
Sixty thousand dollars blown. So could you at least
spare me twenty more bones for some fresh blank CDs?
Oh, and a couple of sleeves?
Should I get on my knees?
Underneath a cherry with a pr-pretty please"
But I'm not one to geeze...
I can see the disease...
that we got no cure for...
that's what your in store for!

All of it!
C-C-Come on, do the Quit!
(Alright, YEAH!)

"awe yeah, that's me..."

We are victims of Green's Disease
We want the money. We count in threes.
We are victims of Green's Disease
We want the money! We want the money, honey!

You just don't get do ya?
NO! You just don't understand...
No one'll give it to ya...
"PLEASE! GOD! DAMN!"
