about

Fox Kalamazoo, Michigan

John, Chris, and Carman are all from Kalamazoo, Michigan. They went to the same middle school and high school, where they found fellowship through being socially awkward together. The lot of them decided it would make them much cooler if they played instruments. IT DIDN'T WORK. That's okay though, because they have fun playing music anyway and have yet to be cited for offending someone's eardrums. ... more

Track Name: Sad World
You’ve got them looks, baby
You’ve got a style
You’ve got yo chin up honey
You’ve got a smile
Yeah
And you know just what to do
I go crazy every time I see you
‘Cause girl you’re somethin’ else

You’ve got that strut, good looker
You’ve got a way
‘Cause, you’ve got yo choice now, sugar
Leave or stay
Yeah
And you know just what to do
I go crazy every time I see you
‘Cause girl you’re somethin’ else

‘Cause when you lifted your eyes
I know what I saw and I saw me a sad girl
I’ll say it again
I know what I saw and I saw me a sad world
Track Name: You Taught Me
You taught me
You taught me so many things
You taught me
You taught me so many things
You told me
You told me so many things
You told me
You told me so many things

‘Cause life, it brings you down
Then smiles all around

I taught you
I taught you so many things
I taught you
I taught you so many things
Yeah
I told you
I told you so many things
I told you
Oh, I told you so many things
Yeah

‘Cause life, it brings you down
Then smiles all around
Track Name: Real Street
Sometimes, when I think I've lost my mind,
I try to hide away and unwind
'Cause every once in awhile, it feels like a trial on file
It's important to remind myself that I can smile
And damn, it looks good too
Lettin' everybody know they can't get to you
So stand your ground, don't let nobody run around you around
'Cause I have found in the end, if you don't bend, then they're the clowns
And every time that you feel worthless
Stand up and tell yourself that you got a purpose
Go ahead, shake hands with your fate
Or take with a grain of salt the words that I say
But I'd be lyin' if I told you this was my advice
'Cause all the credit goes to the ladies of my life
So give a hug to your sister, a kiss to your girl,
A call to your mother, give love to the women on Real Street

You know who you are
Kisses and hugs to the women on Real Street
You know who you are

So straighten up, keep your chin held high
Live that rough, tough life 'till the day you die, right?
Yeah, don't get yourself all bent outta shape
We've all been there, done that, do it today
'Cause young blood runs deep, you gotta keep countin' sheep
Don't you dare fall asleep just to let it pass by
'Cause yo, in case you didn't know,
History will show, you reap what you sow
Take a little time and design your mind to walk the line
And shine on the lost and the blind
Good lookin', now give yourself a pat on the back
And when they disappoint you, cut 'em some slack
'Cause mercy is the mantra of the meek
While true glory is the mountain, not the peak
So seek the unique, speak with the weak,
geek with the freaks, but don't you ever sneak off scared
'Cause fortune favors the bold
Plus imagine your regrets when you get too old
Yeah, look at you, as the sad truth sets in
Well get up, stand up, live to win
But you were down yesterday back at the mall
So tell me, did you ever make the call?
'Cause I ain't never seen a hero that didn't fall
Before he huffed and he puffed and he snuffed 'em all with a
Job, knob, and some loot to boot
Slick wheels, real meals, and a check for the deck
Better listen to your papa, better listen to your mama,
Better know when you're runnin' the red light on West Main and Drake
'Cause you know you did
Just like I always wanted to ever since I was kid
But alas, I wasn't bold, and now I'm old,
Yet just like you, I still don't have a goddamn clue

You know who you are
Oh yeah
You know who you are
All right
Track Name: Don't Play
Hey
You said that you would be okay
But it doesn't look that way
Oh, no
Don't play

Hey
You said that you would be okay
But it doesn't look that way
Oh, no
Don't play

Hey
Just wipe all those tears away
'Cause girl, you're beautiful
Yes you are
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Track Name: Keep on Lovin' Baby
Tell me, sweet baby
Why you look so sad
Please tell me, sweet baby
Why you look so sad
‘Cause ever since I first saw that pretty smile
Oh, I knew you were out of sight
So I put my foot down and I looked in your eyes and I said to my utmost surprise
Oh, I said girl

Keep on lovin’, baby
I won’t give up on you
Oh no
So don’t you give up on me, girl
Just keep on lovin’, baby
I won’t give up on you
Oh no
So don’t you give up on me

‘Cause I made too many mistakes in my life, girl
Yes I did
Oh, but if there’s one thing you oughta know about me
It’s that I’ve been lookin’ for love ever since I was a kid
Yeah
Well, the moment was fleeting
Oh, and my heart was beating, yes it was
Wished I’d put my foot down and I’d looked in your eyes and I’d said to my utmost surprise
Wished I’d said girl

Keep on lovin’, baby
I won’t give up on you
Oh no
So don’t you give up on me, girl
Just keep on lovin’, baby
I won’t give up on you
Oh no
So don’t you give up on me
No

Yeah
Oh, keep on lovin’, baby
Track Name: There Goes Another
When I leave
When I go
I won't die
Or so I'm told
So don't you cry
Don't you let it pour
'Cause when I'm gone
I know I'll soar

'Cause
There goes another
And I know
Oh yes, I know
Sweet baby, yeah
And I know
Oh yes, I know
Sweet baby, yeah

Now all the boys and all the girls runnin' round, havin' a blast
Look at 'em go
All the boys and all the girls runnin' round, havin' a blast
Look at 'em go

'Cause
There goes another
And I know
Oh yes, I know
Sweet baby, yeah
And I know
Oh yes, I know
Sweet baby, yeah
And I know
Oh yes, I know
Sweet baby, yeah
And I know
Oh yes, I know
Yes, I know
Track Name: Drunk Again
It’s 11 o’clock in the morning,
And I’m here drunk again.
I ain’t got no time to worry about where I’m going,
Or where I’ve been.
I’ll just set me up a tall one,
And that makes number 10.
It’s 11 o’clock in the morning,
And I’m here drunk again.
I’m here drunk again.
It’s 11 o’clock in the morning,
And I’m here drunk again

Well, you know the day you left me girl,
It made me feel so sad.
But, it only took a dozen beers,
To turn me ‘round to glad.
So, don’t you go and worry none.
You know I’ll be okay.
‘Cause I got me another 6-pack,
And there’s more on the way.

It’s 11 o’clock in the morning,
And I’m here drunk again.
I ain’t got no time to worry about where I’m going,
Or where I’ve been.
I’ll just set me up a tall one,
And that makes number 10.
It’s 11 o’clock in the morning,
And I’m here drunk again.
I’m here drunk again.
It’s 11 o’clock in the morning,
And I’m here drunk again
Track Name: You Will, Someday
Stuck in this town
Stuck here today
Stuck here for now
I ain’t gettin’ away
No no.
No, not today.
But, you can bet your ass,
I will someday.

Whole lotta people live here
You don’t see ‘em around
Stuff ‘em off in the corners
Hope they don’t make a sound.
No no.
No, not today.
But, you can bet your ass,
They will someday

You don’t like our image.
You don’t like our style.
You can’t take nothin’ real.
You don’t like nothin’ wild.
No no.
No, not today.
But, you can bet your ass
You will someday
Track Name: Marigold
The stones in the wall, well they all speak.
Just like you and me.
They’re not so articulate,
but you’ll get the message, you’ll see.

You can’t stop looking around,
what’s lost will one day be found.
If you would listen to me now,
and let the silence be loud.

In some ways our lives are like grass.
The wind speaks sweet and fast.
I hear a voice and I know it’s true.
And my love, it sounds just like you.

You can’t stop looking around,
what’s lost will one day be found.
If you would listen to me now,
and let the silence be loud.

When I’m gone, you’ll remember me.
Hear my voice calling from the trees.
They say that the truth will set you free.
And my love, I know that you believe.

You can’t stop looking around,
what’s lost will one day be found.
If you would listen to me now,
and let the silence be loud.

Ventulus, ventulus.
Orion calls, and it calls for you.
Ventulus.
Track Name: Knives
I see those knives
Lookin' back at me
I feel those eyes
Wonder what they see
It's no surprise
That people let me be
So let's all rise
To a state of apathy

'Cause you will meet your maker
When you learn
Then you will see you're stranger
When you return

I see those knives
Lookin' back at me
I feel those eyes
Wonder what they see

Well, here I stand
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Track Name: Billy's Song
Billy kept mostly to himself, but only mostly.
Lived in a shack built on his back, in the woods,
it was ghostly.
Only one girl for Billy, her name was Winnie,
and she slept right under his bed.
She was a lever-action hair-triggered .45,
and her favorite color was red.

Billy,
leave that girl alone.
Billy,
leave that girl alone.

Billy woke in the middle of the night
when the cavalry arrived.
Blood moon lit the whole platoon,
they weren't takin' Billy alive.
Captain yelled, “Ready, aim steady, and fire on command.”
But all those soldiers, they didn’t mean a thing
‘cause they were fightin’ on Billy’s land.

Billy,
you’ve got nowhere to go.
Billy,
you’ve got nowhere to go.
