about

Miss Lonelyheart Frederick, Maryland

Miss Lonelyheart plays hook laden independent guitar rock. The band has been compared to the likes of Mission of Burma, The Replacements, Superchunk and Jawbox; and has shared the stage with Fugazi, Rye Coalition, The French Kicks, Gem & Burning Airlines. They have been active on and off for 20 years. They write original songs about the things they care about and present it without any bullshit. ... more

Track Name: Empty Space
Does anyone
Does anyone
Does anyone care
Does anyone
Does anyone
Does anyone care

Does anyone care at all
Does anyone see the obvious flaws

Hiding behind the parapet wall
Sitting on our hands watching continents thaw
Does anyone really care at all
Does anyone see this flaw

You grab the plastic forks
I'll grab the paper plates
We'll clear out an empty space
We'll picnic on our future graves

Mistakes of the past get dusted off
Shrink wrap applied locks the mold inside
Does anyone really care at all
Does anyone see this flaw

Gorging ourselves on disposable achievements
We've been released

Tripping over common sense
As we rise to receive our awards

Placing science on trial
Onward hungry soldiers to your feast

Does anyone
Does anyone
Does anyone care
Does anyone
Does anyone
Does anyone care

Does anyone care at all
Does anyone see the obvious flaws

Feeding on the trash we're sold
Pitched and snuffed out on the road
Soon to be someone's heavy load
Soon to be someone's heavy...
Track Name: Ordinary Living
Drive for hours on the interstate
Just like it’s all built to last
Taking for granted every exit
Which looks just like the last

Wouldn’t get off at any of them
But you do because you can
It’s all homogenized,
made by corporations and the man

And you
You better figure it out
What you’re living for

A little farther now
A little farther now
But really you’re just
A little closer now
To the end of the road
As the mile markers pass you by

You get so lost along the way
It’s so easy to go astray
A little longer now
And it’s just a little farther away

And you
You better figure it out
What you’re living for
Track Name: A Call
Can you hear the sirens singing?
Can you hear the pounding of the drum?
It is a red hot electricity
It is a call

Can you feel, can you feel the heat out on the street tonight?
Can you feel the pounding of the drum?
Can you swing to the rhythm, to the rhythm of possibility?
It is a call
and…

It’s such a noble groove
It’s one I’ve heard before
On records from eighty-nine, and ninety-three
And nineteen sixty-four

Swing to the rhythm, to the beat, to the rhythm
Swing to the rhythm, to the rhythm, to the beat…

And it echoes through the ages
Put down your arms and move your feet!
It is a sound that stirs a million hearts, and a million minds, and
A million souls to hit the street…

It is a Call
