about

Dead End Friends Duluth, Minnesota

Blacklisted from the biggest annual music event in the history of their hometown, Duluth, MN, the Dead End Friends represent the counter-culture of wash-boarders and jug blowers that the town has come to warmly embrace.

The Dead End Friends are LOUD with a heavy-handed rhythm section, and guitar riffs Jimmy Page forgot about many years ago.

Track Name: Ghost Town
(Verse 1)
Take me down
Take me back to where we were and show me something I can wait for.
Settle down
No point in having no fun
No sense in losing what you came for.

Time won't wait up for you.

(Chorus)
It's a fight defending yourself when they all try to take it away.
And you might pretend it goes well. When the call comes, take it away.

(Verse 2)
Take it all
Take it all for what it's worth. Leave everything that slows you down
It will all be gone. It's just a matter of time.
Let's watch this place turn to a ghost town.

Time won't wait up for you.

(Chorus)
It's a fight defending yourself when they all try to take it away.
And you might pretend it goes well. When the call comes, take it away.

It's a fight defending yourself when they all try to take it away.
And you might pretend it goes well. When the call comes, take it away.
Track Name: Radio Poison
(Verse 1)
Stand up, it's time to meet your greatest energy.
Jump up and dance with me and don't stop, don't go.
Feel the shaking ground. Hear that breaking sound.
That love that we just found. This Rock and Roll Show.

(Chorus)
Take cover in the radio.
Hit the ground as you start to feel the truth.
Make love with the stereo.
We all hide behind the music in the room.

(Verse 2)
No this is not a test. You feel it in your chest.
It's beating by request just let it be free.
Your only friend tonight, your only alibi.
It's such a battle cry just scream yourself to sleep.

(Chorus)
Take cover in the radio.
Hit the ground as you start to feel the truth.
Make love with the stereo.
We all hide behind the music in the room.
Track Name: The Great Experiment
(Verse 1)
The last in line for the great experiment.
I'm stuck behind the feeling that I get.
That it's gonna be a long long time before I'm giving in.
Waiting for the bell and the whistle and the gun and the trumpet call.

(Chorus)
Don't stare at me. Don't look away.
Against the wall. Don't care at all.

(Verse 2)
It might be time to leave this line.
It's getting longer all the time.
Maybe sooner than the rest of them to wait behind.
Many years from now with a pipe and a cane and a rocking chair.

(Chorus)
Don't stare at me. Don't look away.
Against the wall. Don't care at all.

(Verse 3)
The last in line for the great experiment.
I'm stuck behind the feeling that I get.
That it's gonna be a long long time before I'm giving in.
Waiting for the bell and the whistle and the gun and the trumpet call.

(Chorus)
Don't stare at me. Don't look away.
Against the wall. Don't care at all.
Track Name: Crash
It stops and then it goes.
It's fast and then it slows.
All that time spent saving up, you've gone and thrown it away.

It could have been saved.
I saw it from a mile away
because time slows down as awareness of it grows.

I'm starting all over.
Face first and I'm back to one.
And when it's all over,
what's done is done is done is done.

It stops and then it goes.
It's fast and then it slows.
All that time spent saving up, you've gone and thrown it away.

I'm starting all over.
Face first and I'm back to one.
And when it's all over,
what's done is done is done is done.
Track Name: Cage
It's all the same the way you take it in and take it back,
then take it all away.
You make a point to point at every single word I say.
And here's what I say.

It's not your fault it's always mine.
It's not to late to run away to find my place.

We're back to where we started, where we used to hate to be.
No time for holiday.
And if you finally find a way to finally find yourself,
You'll hear me say.

It's not your fault it's always mine.
It's not to late to run away to find my place.
It's not your fault it's always mine.
It's not to late to run away to find my place.
Track Name: Concrete
Do you remember when the story began?
Our shoes kicked solid ground.
After miles of marching on, our souls wearing thin.
Growing tired of the rhythm we've found.

And when I found out you were going away,
I begged you "Please Don't Go."
Conjure up a thousand reasons why you should stay.
Why you should come back home.


Just three words
set in stone.
The concrete fades with all the time that's passed away.
Just three words
I never told you
I'll sing them one last time before we go our separate ways.


It's cold it's black it's blue alone in the dark.
This flame has found its way out.
I'll sit I'll wait for you I'll hope for a spark
to set fire and burn the place down.


Just three words
set in stone.
The concrete fades with all the time that's passed away.
Just three words
I never told Joe
I'll sing them one last time before we go our separate ways.
Track Name: On & On
Hello
Can you tell me if I'm still here?
Did I die? Or maybe just disappear?
You say there's gotta be more than this.
That apple hangs at your fingertips.


On and on and so it goes.
It's dark before it glows.
On and on we can't know.
On and on


Show me something I can't see.
Caught in and hourglass only in between.
Scream aloud. (Hey!) Show me fear.
On and on until we disappear.


So long
I'll be on my way.
So little time, so much more to say.
You said there had to be more than this.
The apple fell from your fingertips.


On and on and so it goes.
It's dark before it glows.
On and on we can't know.
On and on


Show me something I can't see.
Caught in and hourglass only in between.
Figure it out. (Hey!) It's so clear.
On and on while we're still here


On and on and so it goes.
It's dark before it glows.
On and on we can't know.
On and on


Show me something I can't see.
Caught in and hourglass only in between.
Scream aloud. (Hey!) Show me fear.
On and on until we disappear.
Track Name: 11:54
They gather around and don't hear a sound but a drop of a pen.
The tattered scabbard of a forsworn knight.
The ghost in the wind.

A path paved by led in the dark shade of red.
Hell hath no fury.
The look in their eye like they're ready to die.
The judge and the jury.
Track Name: Two Cents
Round and round this record goes.
The two cents dropped and they don't know.
We can't look past what we don't know.
To pull the curtain on our own show.

They don't know what we're going for.
They don't know us at all.
Now and again we're wanting more.
They don't know who we are.

Big acts are hard to follow.
Small things are hard to see.
That's just the way it should be.
We'll try again tomorrow.
We'll rewrite history.
That's just the way it should be.

Maybe we should struggle with the day to day.
We shouldn't laugh it off that way.
Can we win before we lose?
The light before the dark ensues.

They don't know what we're going for.
They don't know us at all.
Now and again we're wanting more.
They don't know who we are.

Big acts are hard to follow.
Small things are hard to see.
That's just the way it should be.
We'll try again tomorrow.
We'll rewrite history.
That's just the way it should be.

Big acts are hard to follow.
Small things are hard to see.
That's just the way it should be.
We'll try again tomorrow.
We'll rewrite history.
That's just the way it should be.
Track Name: Falling Apart
This is not how it's meant to be.
The falling out is not for me.
You pick me up just to let me down.
It's much too loud for me to make a sound.

You're falling apart just like you always do.
And I'm falling apart just like you.
You got yourself into it get yourself back out.

I take back everything I said.
I hope these words get stuck in your head.
You picked me up just to let me down.
It's much too loud for me to make a sound.

You're falling apart just like you always do.
And I'm falling apart just like you.
You got yourself into it get yourself back out.

You're falling apart just like you always do.
And I'm falling apart just like you.
You got yourself into it get yourself back out.
Track Name: Something For The Kids
Well here we go around this room.
The walls are burning love
Darlin me and
It's all the same, it's all we do
It keeps us movin on
Darlin me and
One last breath before we end.
It's comin down to it
Darlin me and

What you got is what we need.
Those staggered lines played just for me.

That lazy eye. That drunkard's glare.
It keeps us movin on
Darlin me and
His black-tooth grin. His once combed hair.
He keeps us laughin on
Darlin me and
One last breath before we end
It's comin down to it
Darlin me and

What you got is what we need.
Those staggered lines played just for me.
Track Name: On Our Way
They say there's nothing like the first time.
Well I don't know cuz every time I see here that feeling grows.

It's a long way down

I caught her staring out the window with no reason to stay.
She waits for the world to knock at her door.
But she won't wait anymore.

It's a long way down.

It feels like we're falling down to Earth.
We're on our way.

It's a long way down.

It feels like we're falling down to Earth.
We're on our way.

We're on our way home.
