about

greg connors music New York, New York

American singer
'Greg Connors’ trademark simple guitar licks and detached alienated, lonely voice are coupled with a scary command of the English language. He is the Howard Finster of music, painting vivid abstract images with his words and guitar.”

Track Name: greg connors/stresspets - Frenemy
sheila would come and go, go without falling and then
If you were someone she'd know
it was two drinks and then a stem
she didn't know when to say when. she didn't know when to say when.

Zoey's looking at ghosts again; like filament and chalk had drawn
Waking up in a den
she said 'the cocaine and the cowboys were gone'
there was nothing left to pawn. Nowhere open to pawn.

The enemy of a hole is a pile
While your shovel is growing thin
you can only be exiled from a place you've already been

The enemy of a hole is a pile
While your shovel's growing thin
You can only be exiled from a place you've already been
Track Name: Philip Seymour
Like the drunken director
who's pissed off the cast
i'm giving up all hope for a brighter past
the paper trail has ended
the trash cans are full
i woke up this morning with the sun and
I'll go back down by the moons pull
and i'll try and make it work, or at least not worse
i'll try and make it work or at least not worse
(chorus)
phillip seymour-what'd you go and do that for?
superbowl sunday; hopeless state of mind and body
and i'll try and make it work or at least not worse...

The first shall be last
the last shall be first
i'm giving up all hope for a brighter past
a blue/grey sky is pushing the
sun down among the trees
i know they recognize me
but i don't know what she see's
and can i make it work or at least not worse...

(chorus)

I walked away from the rope
the die has been cast
i'm giving up all hope
for a brighter past
and i'll try and make it work or at least not worse...
Track Name: Jail
out of smiles and decisions, missing in line on the lamb, get me out before the next season my infinite and holiest fan........
Track Name: Savage Samaritan (w/ Stresspets)
far away animated talks
with a barrel in their mouth
he paid the ransom and he saved the girl
so they could watch the deal go south
they made the rounds all expenses paid
to places they never were.
whether they came or whether they went,
really no one was sure.

(chorus)
you hope you wont, you know you will
can't move on, you can't sit still
mining for repair
leaves and grass-in your hair again
savage samaritan

they cashed out their IRA's went MIA
let the spinning plate drop.
this is a test another overnight guest
Taj mahal and a mop
cursing the scene she says
'i to do lean-on what may or may not offend'
up and down, all around
he swore the staring would never end

(chorus)
Track Name: Disappointed
Disappointed at myself
didn't want to sing another one of those
I have you on my mind like my skull
You have my boxes of books and clothes
Where is the pay-off for all
my wear and tear and talk and cough
If i look too closely it's nowhere
like a moth

(chorus)
Nowhere to be found
nowhere to be taken away to
Anytime I'm crowned
the thrown faces the same old shit again
Looking up from the ground
Bargaining with the beast on my back again
but I'm back again-to Renovate my Fate....

Your mascara ran
and I stayed passed out
T'was never the plan of being a man
or trying to figure out-normal-
was a neighborhood in my eye
that only you could see
Maggie

(chorus)
