about

Atomic Shotgun New York, New York

If Dave Grohl and a 60’s-Era Grace Slick made sweaty, hot nookie in the back of a borrowed pickup truck on a random dusty shoulder off Route 66, the resulting spawn would be named Atomic Shotgun.

--LYRICS--

Opposite poles
The needle turns in place
Sky shifts from gray to blue
While the clouds form their magical shapes
Layin in the murky swamp
Lift me up and hose me off
I’ll run through the field
With the abandon of a child
I’m drinking from the cup and it’s driving me wild

Bundle of hues in a glass-walled box
I’m lookin at ‘em like a dirty sly fox
Unlock it and their brilliance shines
Like everything there was at the beginning of time
Too many years behind the oak door
One day I just couldn’t take it anymore
Brown blanket wrapped around me, it was good for a while
Now it trips me up and it kills my style

I’ll love you like you love me
And I’ll let go of my dependencies
Let the magnet pivot in place
See if it can save the human race
Not gonna look outside for me
Gonna grab the mirror and go in deep
You see what I’m lookin for’s already here
Behind that wall of fear
I’m the beautiful wanderer
Beautiful wanderer
Beautiful wanderer
Beautiful wanderer
Oh

Always grabbing at a million tiny things
Tryin to see if I can catch everything
Now I’m gonna stop, just sit on the ground
Watch the world turn and smile all around
My future is bright, full like the seas
And this moment has everything that I need
I’ll forgive the small man with the bloody axe
Even though he forgot to ask
Hold the lantern up to everyone
Look ‘em in the eye and I can I see the sun

I’ll love you like you love me
And I’ll let go of my dependencies
Let the magnet pivot in place
See if it can save the human race
Not gonna look outside for me
Gonna grab the mirror and go in deep
You see what I’m lookin for’s already here
Behind that wall of fear
I’m the beautiful wanderer
Beautiful wanderer
Beautiful wanderer
Beautiful wanderer
Oh


Oh
Beautiful beautiful beautiful beautiful wanderer
Beautiful beautiful beautiful beautiful wanderer
Oh oh
Yeah yeah

--LYRICS--

He walks in sits at the desk
I take my seat
Opens the file, begins to read
I feel the heat
Not enough, not enough that’s the verdict
That’s all he sees
More and more, more and more, that’s the order
Endless decree

Whatever you want me to be
Whatever you want me to do
To fill your undying need
Never mind if none of it is true
Ambition and desire
Under pressure, under fire
Ambition and desire
Under pressure, under fire

Walk out into the world
My course is set
With these eyes everything looks like a danger
And I got nothing for it
Try and try, try and try, got to please him
Or they’ll be pain
But the more that I try, try to please him
The more pain comes anyway
Bigger than before
Pain comes anyway
Bigger than before

Whatever you want me to be
Whatever you want me to do
To fill your undying need
Never mind if none of it is true
Ambition and desire
Under pressure, under fire
Ambition and desire
Under pressure, under fire

She tells me it’s an inside job
Unplug myself and connect to another way
Sounds so simple and so hard
But I’ll do anything for a brighter day
A brighter day
Brighter

Whatever you want me to do
Whatever you want me to be
I will only follow what is true
And I hope that will set me free
Ambition and desire
Release the pressure, light a new fire
No more ambition, let go my desire
Release the pressure, light a new fire
No more unnecessary pain
No more pain
No more pain
No more

--LYRICS--

Fiery red hair
Eyes black as night
Blue streaks running down her face
Lips pink and tired
Hands folded resting on her chin
This is where the conversation begins

How did we get here
I know we can’t go back, no
Where do we go next
I can’t see the tracks, no

Tense inhale
Brushes hair from her cheek
Pain in my side
Been there for weeks
We’re getting nowhere
Why can’t we see
Exactly where we are
And who we’re supposed to be

How did we get here
I know we can’t go back, no
Where do we go next
I can’t see the tracks, no
How did we get here
I know we can’t go back, no
Where do we go next
I can’t see the tracks

Stuck in place
We can’t see
The next destination
The next destination
Is it our resistance
That keeps us from
The next destination
The next destination
Stuck in place
We can’t see
The next destination
The next destination
The next destination
Oh

Oh
The next destination
The next destination
The next destination
The next destination

--LYRICS--

He tells me it’s gonna be all right
Just head for the burning scorchlight
Been burned a hundred thousand times
But I can’t overcome my own fuckin’ mind

Save me
I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself
Save me
I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself

Burning fire all around
Trying to stand on shaking ground
Playing with my toys was always fun
Razor cuts deep and the blood starts to run

Save me
I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself
Save me
I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself

Why did it happen to me
A good girl is all I wanted to be
But every time I try to get a grip
He tells me it’s okay to let it slip

He tells me it’s gonna be all right
Just head for the burning scorchlight
Been burned a hundred thousand times
I can’t overcome my own fuckin’ mind

Save me
I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself
Save me
I can’t save myself, I can’t save myself
Save me
Oh, the scorchlight
From the scorchlight
Save me
I don’t wanna go tonight
No, I don’t wanna go tonight
Save me from the scorchlight
Save me from the scorchlight

--LYRICS--

Knee high mountain man gushes terror lava
Twenty foot wooden spoon flies at my head
Yellow bike sits happy in a green yard
Sprinkled with rhubarb and raspberry dreams

Saucy old victim turns to the west
Last safe harbor drained ‘til it’s dry
Lock ol’ Jack in the closet and play the game
No time to fight back or have a good cry

Where did it all go, what did I do, oh
Can I find someone to find and solve it all

Goofy little blue man tries to make it better
Brave little bear is struck dumb
Rusty high wire buzzes with a demon’s nest
Goofy little trio comes over to kick red

Where did it all go, what did I do, oh
Can I find someone to find and solve it all

Wooden horse silver horse carry but they go
They’ll explode eventually you know
Super slow toboggan slides down a hill of Hershey bars
Carve the green in two and move to Mars

Where did it all go, what did I do, oh
Can I find someone to find and solve it all

--LYRICS--

Why did you come into my life
Was it just to make it worse
Why did you come into my life
Was it just to cast your curse
Why did you walk away from the light
Was it not fun enough for you
Why did you bring your darkness to me
Was it just to make it through

Well I don’t need your darkness
I’m much too in need of the light
So take your gloom away
And let me live my life

Why did you walk away from your truth
Was it just too good for you
Why did you give power back to the lie
After all it had done to you
Why ask me to help you retreat
When I was different from the rest
I wanted to be a friend to you
Well darlin’ I did my best

Well I don’t need your darkness
I’m much too in need of the light
So take your gloom away
And let me live my life

No, I don’t need your darkness
I’m much too in need of the light
So take your gloom away
And let me live my life
My life, my life, my life
Let me live my
My life, my life, my life
My life, my life, my life

--LYRICS--

The film is all about you
Your genius rules the world
Soul-hungry lenses
Flash into a swirl
You’ve hungered for this moment
Since you were a child
Now they all love you
Because you’re free and wild

You’ve risen above
All the rest
Transcended your history
To become the best
Now you’re worshipped
Not human anymore
A star in the heavens
A crackhead and a whore

Curtains and shadows
Are things of the past
No walks down Main Street
Or silent epitaphs
A sinking feeling
Down in your soul
I could have told you
Your story’s so old

You’ve risen above
All the rest
Transcended your history
To become the best
Now you’re worshipped
Not human anymore
A star in the heavens
A crackhead and a whore

Lives that were traded
A wake of blood
Dreams that were crushed
Down in the mud
Your ticket now takes you anywhere
They always told us
Life ain’t fair

You’ve risen above
All the rest
Transcended your history
To become the best
Now you’re worshipped
Not human anymore
A star in the heavens
A crackhead and a whore

Oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, oh

You left the fortress
Arms filled with gold
Pill from the mystics to
Keep from getting old
Robbed on the highway and
Now it’s all gone
How will you learn
How to go on
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

It’s all about you
It’s all about you, oh, oh
It’s all about you

I Don't Want You
©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music

--LYRICS--

Well I was fine, no problems here
Fixed myself without you, dear
Then you walked in the room
And it all comes back, way too soon

I want you, but I don’t want you
I think I need you when I don’t need you
When I want the sugar I get the bite
Makes me feel good, but I’m not right

I remember days gone by
Dancin’ crazy, drinkin’ all night
So damn happy for awhile
Something inside you made it all right

I want you, but I don’t want you
I think I need you when I don’t need you
When I want the sugar I get the bite
Makes me feel good, but it’s not right

Then the trouble, then the fight
Broken dishes, screaming all night
So long, so hard to get away
I was sure I could stay away
Stay away
Stay away

I don’t want you
I don’t want you
I don’t want you
I don’t want you
I don’t want you
I don’t want you
I don’t want you
I don’t want you

Your Dawn
©2011 Atomic Shotgun/Collin Daniels Music

--LYRICS--

How dare you toss away
Everything we’ve learned
How dare you set it ablaze
Now everything is burned
How dare you toss away
Everything we built
How dare you let the arrows fly
Now everything is killed

I don’t know what to do
Everything is gone
I don’t know what to say
Except that you’ve won
Except that you’ve won

How dare you take your fist
And break a bond so strong
Why did you break it in two
And say that we were wrong
How dare you spit in my face
And tell me to go it alone
How do you expect me to survive
With all the daggers you’ve thrown

I don’t know what to do
Everything is gone
I don’t know what to say
Except that you’ve won
Except that you’ve won

How dare you let your demons take center stage
You let your decisions be made by your rage
Tomorrow you’ll wake up and what we had will be gone
I hope you enjoy the taste of death in your dawn

I don’t know what to do
Everything is gone
I don’t know what to say
Except that you’ve won
I don’t know what to do
Everything is gone
I don’t know what to say
Except that you’ve won
Except that you’ve won
Yeah, you have won
Congratulations, you won
But what have you won?
Tell me, what have you won?

--LYRICS--

I don’t know
Why you want to go
Go this way tonight
I’ve got no choice
But to follow you
Follow your tiny light

Your short little fire is tempting me
Your short little fire is tempting me
Your short little fire is tempting me
Your short little fire is tempting me

There’s a road
I don’t wanna go
I don’t want to go down
There’s no light
When you get to the end
Just arms dragging you out

Your short little fire is tempting me
Your short little fire is tempting me
Your short little fire is tempting me
Your short little fire is tempting me

You can dance with the devil
You can sing with the saints
Or hide your face from the moon
But someday
The collector will call
I know that don’t mean nothing to you, now

Your short little fire is tempting me
Your short little fire is tempting me
Your short little fire is tempting me
Your short little fire is tempting me
Short little fire
Short little fire
Short little fire
