about

Big Sur Glen Ellyn, Illinois

Continuing the tradition of the Mid-West underground, Big Sur blends infectious hooks with old time punk bravado and Iggy style acrobatics. Their whiplash performances are "blink and you'll miss it" explosions of temper tantrum pop songs, spitting out stun gun guitar riffs backed by pulsating rhythms that evoke an urgent sincerity that is sorely lacked in a scene dominated by hipster elitism. ... more

Track Name: BigSur - In The City
Dressed to depressed but feeling pretty
a no one in the suburbs and even more so in the city
Lying on the curb with no place to go
Feelin’ like Chicago just kicked me in the throat

I’ve got a little less than nothing to my name
Hung over, no plan and no place to stay

Nothing’s easy
For a stranger in the city

Now I'm looking for a friend who can’t be found
Last year the drug squad had to take him down
Honey if I’m the sugar in your scotch,
Then darlin’ you’re my excuse to the cops

yeah from the rails Union looks alright
until you’re fucking sleeping otuside

First train home? You bet I’m ready
No mercy for a misfit in the city
Don't you Leave me
In the City

And When Summer Comes
I'll be on the run
and getting out of my head with you,
Your long dark hair, and eyes of blue.

But Don't You Leave Me In The City
Track Name: BigSur - Amp
Turn the Amps from ten to ten
so I can play twelve to twelve.
Not much left of me
besides that little 'script bottle that's sitting on the shelf.
Feeling restless, think I'll go for a ride.
I'm feeling restless,
drive myself to death tonight.

Hope I don't crash.
Track Name: BigSur - Alice James
Alice James
Is not the same
As she was yesterday
a fresh cut on her face
and something’s been slashed right out of place

Alice James
woke up today
And fell through her bathroom doorway
she bit her lip and checked her weight
She’s at ten below 108

Do all men judge me
by how much they can love me?
Do all men think the same?
I wish I could carve off my body
it only gets in the way

I’m a slave to my body
my body slave to property
I just want to be seen as something
besides someone’s sexuality

Do all eyes judge me
by how much they want me
do all eyes see the same?
Do they see this starving body
The temple of my pain
Track Name: BigSur - Future Ex-Girlfriend
How many times have I laid right in this bed
And how many times am I going to get to do it again?
You look just like a ghost every time I see you sleeping
And even though there is a whole city outside,
All I hear is the sound of you breathing

My future ex-girlfriend is crying tonight
And my future ex-girlfriend knows the reason why
it doesn’t matter who is wrong, doesn’t matter who is right
My future ex girlfriend is losing tonight

Don’t get me wrong, I love her so
And to tell you the truth, she’s all I want to know
but there’s been a fire inside this house we’ve built,
and by the end of the night someone’s guts are getting spilled

My future ex-girlfriend is crying tonight
And my future ex-girlfriend knows the reason why
it doesn’t matter who is wrong, doesn’t matter who is right
My future ex girlfriend is losing tonight

Never wanted to hurt you, never wanted to watch you cry,
And least of all I never wanted to have to say goodbye
but you have your motives, and I have mine,
what’s the point in staying somewhere we’re both unsatisfied

My future ex-girlfriend is crying tonight
And my future ex-girlfriend knows the reason why
it doesn’t matter who is wrong, doesn’t matter who is right
pretty hard to tell who’s leaving who tonight
Track Name: BigSur - I Don't Always Know
You , put all your fears away
and try to hear out,
just what I have to say.

Though I don't always know what i'm talking about,
Sometimes I just don't know.
Every time I open my mouth, i'm really not quite sure.

Now You, You're a chance I'm willing to take
but now you're saying, i'm making a big mistake

And I don't always know what you're talking about,
sometimes I just don't know
Sometimes when I open my mouth
I'm really not quite sure.

Indecision
always gets the best of me
but this time i'm not so blind,
Hell I can even see

That this time I know what i'm talking about
This time I really do know,
this time I know what i'm talking about
this time I am quite sure.
Track Name: BigSur - "Dreaming"
Yeah we we're making it in the park,
But I was just Dreaming.

Oh Oh Oh Oh.
