about

oldboy Cleveland, Ohio

A band from cleveland ohio, with a blue collar attitude about making and performing music. We know what it feels like to enjoy music and songs, and we try to bring that to people.
With influences from REM, wilco, neil young and the pixies, we are compared to mumford and sons, the band, and Ray LaMontagne, but never derivative of anyone. We hope to make music that you feel and moves you.

Track Name: prelude/ my dear
oh my dear, i beg you to stay. oh my dear, I long for you right away I beg you to stay, oh right away/ oh my heart, I’m leaving you today, oh my soul, i long for you right away. i beg you to stay, oh right away/ woah right away/ oh let it out, oh let it out/ my heart, in my heart/ let it out, oh let it out in my heart, my heart
Track Name: in/out
How long till I let you down. The holes in my feet from the burning ground. I’m whole again. Tired and wired “I’m home” she said. So tired but I could not sleep. Broken bodies in circadian dreams. you leave the world, said what you wanted was hope and the heart of a girl. Break me in my dear. Or box my ears./ So loud that I could not see opened doors in front of me. The language that you wanted to learn leads to heartache and lust that could burn. The lies that you needed the most tears you down like a broken ghost. Leaving once more, checking the door. Cries of regret, remorse for more. Break me in my dear. Or box my ears./ you wanted in you wanted out now. You wanted in you wanted out now. You wanted in it’s the best you gave. Tired of all the things you gave. I’m leaving this. I’m bleeding out. I’m tired now….i’m tired now/ you said you’d leave, you said you’d lie…alone tonight, leave me alone, alright. You said you’d leave, you said you’d lie alone, leave alone. Die alone, cry alone, leave me alone./ you wanted in you wanted out now. You wanted in you wanted out now. You wanted in it’s the best you gave. Tired of all the things you gave. I’m leaving this. I’m bleeding out. I’m tired now…I’m tired now.
Track Name: drive
catch me in a place I’ve known. where heaven sits on a hollowed throne. babies born in a garden grow. saying “hold me, momma hold me”. the load is light and the night is young. carry my like a knife or gun. apologies are far from won, saying “hold me, just hold me.”/ we drive... / regarding me its the words that stung. crippled by a hurtful tongue. lights of a town a golden sun. saying “hold me, just hold me”/ we drive.... / carry me proudly with our eyes on the air. stay with me always like you want me there. In space in places, the night and the day. the best i could ask is just hold me, just hold me/ we drive... /wait on the night, the best that we had. wait on the streets, wait on this dash. way down in places the night and the day. the best i could ask is just hold me/ we drive...
Track Name: covered in sound
better hold on to something. this world isn’t made for the taking. we dream of another. and wait and we hold on to the other side/ we waited and held on for days that we knew, the things would surround you. things we’ve held, things we’ve known. and the things that we want to be told/ so bury me out loud…, all covered in sound/ we waited and held on for days but we knew that it would surround you. the things you’ve said, to the lines below, as the light drops to the night down below/ so bury me out loud, all covered sound/ on the other side, you and i, we hold up our arms to the other side..... bury me outloud, all covered in sound.
Track Name: run (feat. jenna fournier)
Hold tight, there’s somebody for you. There’s a light in someone’s eyes. Bold and free. Never the less I’ll see. You just might find your lover tonight./ oh we run… from the devil, we run… from the places we’re from. But I can tell that you love someone./ Its alright, given the signs in view. We can feel the electric high. We move like bees. Feeling the sting you seek. You just might find your lover tonight/ oh we run… from the devil, we run… from the places we’re from. But I can tell that you love someone…/ bear with me. “I’ll be fine”, she said. Lets go home together. Lets grow old together. We’ll be lively not sad./ oh we run… from the devil, we run… from the places we’re from. But I can tell that you love someone…
Track Name: daylight savings
its time to check the clock. check her she checked her watch. got two tickets for the coast, one is in her coat. that second hand is cold. now I’m tearing up my room. where the hell’d I kick my shoes.. my time is almost done, I know she’s almost gone, so I hit the street and run/ they’re ready now (all the apologies) I’m runnin scared (all the apologies) I’m running I’m almost to her door/ wash her eyes she washed her face. second hand has found its place. she knows if I cared at all, I’d be here no matter what. my heart the door it shut. so I’m runnin down her block. said “come on come on come on”. its no fair it just aint right. if I was her I just might, see you waiting there inside/ they’re ready now (all the apologies) I’m runnin scared (all the apologies) I’m running I’m almost to her door/ there’s a ticket on the floor, ripped neatly into fours. I was leaving here at 9. I made it here on time. clocks an hour more than mine. Yeah.. they’re ready now (all the apologies) I’m runnin scared (all the apologies) I’m running I’m almost to her door/ they’re ready now (all the apologies) they’re ready now (all the apologies) their pointless but their ready….their ready now, man their ready now. They’re pointless, but they’re ready.
Track Name: gone
Brother sit me down, times are hard all we have are arguments. Single place that we have left, history and it stands alone like mouments./ so take me down, woah down break me down. I’ll go on and on…I’ll be labored on./ father that I never had, you know that you can go to hell and don’t look back. Things you’ve done, those things you’ve said.. take it all away. Leave this life to the one that you want instead. Take me now. Woah don’t bring me down. I’ll go on and on…I’ll be labored on./ pray that we are left when days we live are spent. Take me in your arms heaven in your heart then we’re gone. Then we’re gone…/ mother please be kind to me. Things I’ve done have sent me to my knees. Your search for all you love has taken you far below and all up above./ pray that we are left when days we live are spent. Take me in your arms, heaven in your heart, then we’re gone. Then we’re gone…
Track Name: orchard thieves
Take me out so slow that I cannot see. The wounds inside my soul that are bothering me. The sounds of frustration. The sound, the sound of elation. The sound inside of me.. Or take out so hard that I cannot breath. The quickest of moves from the heart of the one that I need. This is my station to hold, to hold and to waste on. The one the one that I need. / oh we run, while coming undone, replaced with the sign of a heartache to come. Wandering free, with reason to be replaced with the sign of the lover in me./ take this don’t break this I know you’ve got no place to go. The blisters the burns the golden sun to your snow. Over my station, to hold to hold and to waste on. The one the one that I need../ oh we run, while coming undone, replaced with the sign of a heartache to come. Wandering free, with reason to be replaced with the sign of the lover in me./ what I wanted to know. I cant take anymore. You wanted to be you wanted to see the orchard thieves. What I wanted to show. As you cursed and you swore. You wanted to be, you’re murdering me like the orchard thieves./ / oh we run, while coming undone, replaced with the sign of a heartache to come. Wandering free, with reason to be replaced with the sign of the lover in me.
Track Name: bullet
There’s a bullet on the ground. I found it on the pavement. You put it in my coat. Its funny how we started. We started at its end. And man we tried to pretend.. so we wandered around the town. looking for a place to settle down. Scraping for one last round. Its funny how we started.. we started at an end. Damn its hard to pretend./ but I’m not strong. And you’re so proud. Its taken far to long to know. I guess we’re just late is all. I’m sure./ here I gotta decide, should I have another one, no no no no no. so I said my best regards from my place at the end of this bar, I never thought It’d be this hard/ Cause I’m not strong. And your so proud. It’s taken far to long to know. I guess we’re just late is all./ and I’m sure. its hard to see. And I’m sure you wanted to stay with me. And I’m sure its hard to see. And I’m sure you wanted to stay with me. I’m sure…/ theres a bullet on the ground, its on the pavement, you put it in my coat.
Track Name: rhythm and timing
You told me, “hold me close, I’m sorry” the light of the moon moves slowly. We gathered up our things, its hardly a thing to me. Arms down, the bones of your shoulders could kill me, If you turned too quickly. You know me. Its too late to up and ignore me. I love how you speak so scratchy. It sounds like the fight was so sexy. And now were standing here waiting with charged up cells I’m ready to take you on./ oh now, I’ll kiss you so hard I swear we’re inside out. oh my./ slowly remember these things you told me. Forgive it like heaven is holy. These sparks they fell like angels. I’ll kiss you clean. Show me with lines of your moving body. We’re hot like the sun that’s shining. Caught up in rhythm and timing. Im so close to you./ ./ oh now, I’ll kiss you so hard I swear are inside out. oh my…/ you told me, “ hold me close, I’m sorry” we move like the moon that’s rising. And by the grace of god, the one that I wanted beside me. The one that I wanted to hold me. Ooh now show me with lines of your moving body. Were hot like the sun that’s shining. Caught up, caught up, caught up in rhythm and timing…./ You told me, “hold me close, I’m sorry” we move like the moon that’s rising. Caught up in rhythm and timing. I’m so close to you.
Track Name: stars
This is me in love. I should take you in my arms, and feel your heart now/ little me I’ve been living in my head. “take the middle of the road to feel” she said. Been jumping over lines, we’re dodging cars now/ my beating, my beating heart now. I’ve been seeing stars now. Even in my daytime./ I’ve been walking the streets. Been taking my time. Watching the world from the back of my mind waiting to hold you. / my beating, my beating heart now. I’ve been seeing stars now. Even in my daytime./ i can feel in my heart, feel in my bones (I can feel it, in my daytime)/ / my beating, my beating heart now. I’ve been seeing stars now. Even in my daytime./ I can feel in my heart, I can feel in my heart, feel in my bones…
Track Name: heart of man
let her down so slow she’ll sleep. Like the morning sunshine needs the window to fall upon your head. Hang on so we don’t get sold, on the lies and overgrown. The ways and the tales of the modern man. There’s one I want, there’s one I wanted more. Hard pressed given up on hopeless. Born out of sin and given less to begin./ given up on the heart of man; Full of light and well laid plans. Where’s the song that left you wanting more. So falls the monuments, the cast is set a broken lens. Taking one more shot to close the show. There’s one I want, there’s one I wanted more. . Hard pressed given up on hopeless. Born out of sin and given less to begin/ can you hope in the heart of man, full of light and well laid plans. Where’s the song that left you wanting more.
