  • For the physical & tactile-minded...The boys at The Facebreaker have designed and printed a small book for your analog hands as a counterpart to your digital ears. This handmade, full color, 5.75" square, 32-page book comes complete with centerfold Facebreaker woodcut reproduction for the very best of fan's walls, inside of closet doors. The contents not only include full color images by The Facebreakers and their favorite Aunt May, but also carry all The Facebreaker-related personnel info and lyrics for your sing-a-long benefits. Since these are printed, stapled and sent one at a time, the process might take a few weeks, but will certainly be a nice addition to any tiny bookcase or tiny coffee table.

    Includes unlimited streaming of The Facebreaker via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

We are the kids of the kids of the kids and we just so happened to happen upon you. Change is, gonna come.
V1 if push came to shove i'd fall in love with the way your tide rolls in it slaps on my banks we'll hug and give thanks for the union of land and water V2 Our balancing act A shoreline contract to govern the ebb and the flow But a broken pact and the coasts contract with havoc reeked on all living things below CHORUS they wailed oh oh, dont let us die the waters crept up on the land won't somebody give us a hand cause the mean ole levee's gotten too heavy and it starts to cry oh oh.... (repeat) V3 the rain it came down washed over the ground and the children started to scare saw fear in our eyes as the water did rise and attempted to breach our city's walls V4 as waters turned fierce the meniscus was pierced and rushed o'er walls that we built the sea crashed through the boards and rushed through the wards and we wondered how many it already killed CHORUS V5 we climbed on the rooves as the water did move up the first and the second floors and searched for the cops the gov'ment and God but the only things 'round were the elements at war V6 it tore off the walls of the shopping malls and the doors of everyone's home you cant even use the phone and i feel all alone cause i cant find my brother we're searching for one another nobody's seen our mother and we wail... CHORUS
Caboose 07:25
Suppose 06:00
i been thinking 'bout this songs singing in metaphor but what for? i got thoughts that need some slinging through the windows and out the door for the entire day work dark for pay (but) in my head things there instead least i can buy things don't need anyway block the thoughts of folks with no bread on the weekend morns i feel so warm with my 2 cats upon my lap and a brand new wife bringin' a new life some facebreakin' maybe a nap need more rubber bands more rocking bands need some real dirt 'neath my nails and some good cuts on backs of my hands as reminders (what) it means to wail my biggest problem z'I can't find one i'm getting' old (wi)thout much told taking a few steps as a hired gun robbing banks filled with fools gold
Baumbeezio 07:08
well it's dark outside and i never know but you always come back HOME we're all wondering whatever happened with our lost youth and our once failing temperament it was lost but its found the way to get back HOME we have grown it don't own us you have shown us (our) HOME


This first album is drawn from the high and lonesome sounds of folks eating dinner, organizing their garages, harvesting wheat, celebrating birthdays, swimming...
