about

This is the band's first album which was performed and recorded by Dave and Shark in their home studio. One day, while the two were at work, their house was broken into by a couple of meth-addicts who stole the computer and external hard drive which contained the masters for this album. The album was stolen before the band could do a final mix or master on it. Oh well, fuck it, it still rocks. Cover art by Kev MC

about

The Dark Shave Asheville, North Carolina

Formed in 2008, The Dark Shave has been playing gigs around the Asheville area while gathering a rather unique fan-base. They've created a hit internet TV show aptly named "The Shave Show", won awards for their work in the 48 Hour Film Festival, and obliged the masses by creating a song of the week every month or two. ... more

Track Name: Hippie Dream Song
We travel around the world, don’t you let it stop
There’s a light up there, I’ll dread my hair
We’ll dance until we drop
So gather ‘round you crunchy crowd
We’ll take it to the top
We travel around the world, don’t you let it stop

Now I know, we’ll steal the glass you blow
And someday you’ll see
I’m more than twice as heady
By now you might think
That our hippie song stinks
Relax, you’ll love it here
I just dosed your beer

We travelled around the world, now we gotta stop
We burnt our brains, we went insane
Our album was a flop
The money’s gone, we broke the bongs
Our dreads have all been chopped
We travelled around the world
Now we’re pushing rocks
Track Name: Lots of Notes
My name is Dave
I play lots of notes
I like to play the guitar
Track Name: Nappy Nappy
Nappy nappy, comin' snappy
A new cappy for your pappy
One more time, I said
Nappy nappy nappy comin' snappy today
People come for miles just to hear me say
Nappy nappy nappy travelling all around
Nappy nappy nappy is coming to your town

Nappy nappy, come and snappy
A new cappy for your pappy

Nappy nappy nappy travelling all around
Nappy nappy nappy 'til the sun goes down
People come for miles just to hear me say
Nappy nappy nappy all night and all day

Nappy nappy comin' snappy
A new cappy for your pappy
One more time, I said
Nappy nappy nappy comin' snappy today
People come for miles just to hear me say
Nappy nappy nappy travellin' all around
Nappy nappy nappy is coming to your town
Track Name: The Sphinx
Divine descendents steer the body of energy
Accumulating vast displays of authority
Informing others of their power, strength and wealth
At the expense of the population's health

It stands alone as a symbol of what once was
Eroding slowly over time as everything does
The lone remainder of a massive society
Standing today but retains no authority

Later we ascend
Chasing the same end
Living out our lives
Stuck in overdrive

Dreams of vast displays
Occupy our days
Everything we buy
Crumbles over time
Track Name: Mr. Ploop
Never thought I'd meet a lovely woman like that
Who would love me at the end of the day
She told me, she told me
She said she'd never leave
But when I ploop, she run away
Track Name: The Stag-Craggity Forest
It was midnight in the stag-craggity forest
I was driving with my best girl, Anna-Leigh
When lightning flashed through the night sky
We veered off the road and hit a tree

We wandered through the forest for hours
Just trying to find our way back to the road
When Anna-Leigh screamed, 'cause we were surrounded
By a big scary pack of wild ghosts

They led us through the forest to a castle
There was a houl, it gave me goosebumps on my skin
Inside, I could hear the monsters and zombies
The door opened, and a scary voice said, "COME IN!"

The masked figure led us down a hallway
I could hear music playing behind the walls
I turned around, but Anna-Leigh had vanished
When some vampires grabbed me by the balls

They dragged me away, kicking and screaming
They bit my neck, and threw me through a door
But it wasn't my blood that they were after
No, these monsters all craved something more

In the main hall the ghouls were all in motion
A feast of flesh for their delight
When I realized, they weren't maiming, they were dancing
And then I knew it was a cosmic night
Track Name: Cosmic Night
Cosmic night is the dance around the nation
At the speed of light, electric harmony sensation
And the feeling's right, it will get your body moving
And your soul will say, "Hey man, this song is grooving"
Oh no!

Cosmic night
Track Name: Cloak
The vast victims of fear
They work so hard to each turn a gear so pointlessly

The golden ones will all decay the same
As every other living being
The thieves will never live to take away
The happiness we get from dreaming

We climb from the hole
But you dig on to maintain control of everyone

The golden ones will all decay the same
As every other living being
The thieves will never live to take away
The happiness we get from dreaming

Propped up by your wealth
Your kind thrives, destroying our health, collectively

The golden ones will all decay the same
As every other living being
The thieves will never live to take away
The happiness we get from dreaming

It's all deception and lies
I see right through your disguise so easily
A nice suit may cloak scum
But I'm not mad, your time will come eventually
Track Name: Brain Snakes
Twirling tail to head
Creatures forming red triangles
Asking me to stay
I can't for I'm only passing
By the winds that blow away the lands I walk from
Something else is lingering inside as I move on
Something else is slithering, Whoa!

Twirling tail to head
Snakes are moving through my bed
Try to wake and flee
The serpents all surrounding me
Lined along the crevices of each step I climb
Pyramid of snakes still looms in landscapes of my mind
Pyramid is caving in, Whoa!

Brain snakes are chasing me
Track Name: Ho Bag Bitch
So full of beauty, this world full of man
But things are so ugly, our struggle demands
Outspoken heroes to show us the way
While you give the guidance, I tell you I'd much prefer to say

Yeah mother fucker mother ho bag bitch
Mother bitch mother fucker mother ho
She's a ho bag bitch and the places she been
Mother fucker, nobody knows

Such overwhelming mountains to climb
The bad guys are winning, the good ones decline
The dummies believe them and hop right aboard
They're chanting such non-sense
I'll give you a phrase I much prefer

Yeah mother fucker mother ho bag bitch
Mother bitch mother fucker mother ho
She's a ho bag bitch and the places she been
Mother fucker, nobody knows

The shivering masses left out in the cold
Our leaders ignore them, the rights have been sold
To plunder our savings, to pamper the rich
While you call it "bail-out"
I call it a big fucking ho bag bitch
Track Name: Dragonfly
Starlight in the sky
An old woman's voice will fall silent tonight
She made waves through time and space
Still the young grandson remembers her face

As our dream keeps moving on
Memories are gone
The truth, I seem to forget
Or have I learned it yet?

I'm one limb of everything
Eyes seperate the one whole entity
You'll find the energy
Blinding the eyes, but the mind learns to see

As our dream keeps moving on
Memories are gone
The truth I seem to forget
Or have I learned it yet?

The sunset dragonfly
Gave me a wink and flew into the night
But I let you slip away
I'm hoping your journey will return you someday

As our dream keeps moving on
Memories are gone
The truth I seem to forget
Or have I learned it yet?
Track Name: What You're Mad About
I don't give a good goddamn what you're mad about
I don't
Track Name: Living Next to a Crackhouse
Living next to a crackhouse
Please don't knock on my door
I don't need to borrow a cup of sugar anymore

Living next to a crackhouse
I do not have spare change
I don't believe you'll buy a burrito
Now I must be on my way

You dumb fuck, you fried your brain
Get off my porch, get out of my way
Collect my bottles, take my cans
Recycle that shit, Mr. Crackman

Mr. Crackman

Living next to a crackhouse
Loud, ambiguous yells
Are they laughing or fighting
Through the wall, it's hard to tell

Living next to a crackhouse
Cheapest rent I could find
Turn the TV up louder
Lock the door, close the blinds

You dumb fuck, you fried your brain
Get off my porch, get out of my way
Collect my bottles, take my cans
Recycle that shit, Mr. Crackman

And you do anything for the little white rocks
If I was lame, you'd be eating my socks
For a couple dollars to make it through
You're creeping me out, forget you!

Mr. Crackman
Track Name: Nappy Reprise
Nappy nappy nappy coming snappy today
I'm talking, people come for miles just to hear me say
Nappy nappy nappy travelling all around
Nappy nappy nannanooga is coming to your town
I say, people come for miles just to hear me say, Aaay Yeah!

Yeah yeah, I said the windows aren't framed
Yeah yeah, I said the windows aren't framed
I said the windows aren't framed
And that's the nature of the game
