about

"Fits and Starts" is the sophomore effort by Cleveland band The Village Bicycle. It's noisy and dirty and was made with unwavering love and hard work and beer, much like the city of Cleveland itself. "Fits and Starts" is The Village Bicycle's attempt at defeating the ever-looming gray haze of apathy with aggressive distribution of skittles and noise.

Track Name: Interstellar
The metal in our bodies comes from outer space
Pieces of former planets floating in our blood streams
And when we die, someone will take our place
And we'll become the minerals beneath their feet

And I wonder if someone, somewhere in the universe
is singing the same song, looking at the sky
And wondering if someone, somewhere in the universe
is singing the same song, looking at the sky
and wondering.

So what are we supposed to do
with all this time that seems so long and short?
And if everything is everything
Then what am I?
Oh what am I?
Oh what am I?
Oh what am I?
Oh what am I?
Oh what am I?
Oh what am I?

And I wonder if someone, somewhere in the universe
is singing the same song, looking at the sky
and wondering if someone, somewhere in the universe
is singing the same song, looking at the sky
looking at the sky and wondering.
Track Name: Hot Mom
She's a woman of the 90s, she knows what it's about.
She watches Nancy Grace while she's working out.
She's got dinner on the table when her husband gets home.
She knows he'll never leave her,
She'll never be alone.

She's got a great career, but her kids come first.
Diamonds flashing in her ears and extra cash in her purse.
A settlement from when her boss tried to get her naked
BUT THAT'S SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND I DON'T HAVE TO TAKE IT!

She's drinking every night. She's taken a lover.
She's standing on the edge and she's about to go over.
She thinks to herself, "Well if this is how it ends,
At least I've got money! At least I've got my friends!"

She's a hot mom in an SUV
Hot mom in an SUV
She's a hot mom in an SUV
Track Name: Telephone
Pick up the phone, dear.
The spiders got into my ears.
They whisper very sweetly that you don't want to see me,
And it's all I can hear.

These bugs are catching.
The eggs are hatching!
And nesting in my brain and driving me insane
from all the scratching!

Pick up the phone dear...
pick up the phone dear...
pick up the phone dear...
pick up the....!
Track Name: Sprankles
There is no beginning and no end.
There is no beginning and no end.
The sun comes up every day, as far as I can see.

Take what you will,
What's mine is mine.
Take what you will,
What's mine is mine.
The sun comes up every day, as far as I can see.

Everything you think you know about me is wrong.
I know what you think you know about me and everything you think you know is wrong.
The sun comes up every day, as far as I can see,
And you can't take that away from me.
Track Name: She's A Hero
Baby walks on broken legs.
Doesn't care that she may fall.
She's a hero to us all,
She's a hero to us.
Baby steps on broken glass
But she doesn't seem to mind.
Hear the whispers from behind
She's a hero to us all.

Motherfucker!
This isn't over.
Broken and bleeding,
one or the other.

Not a thing to do,
takes it right out of you.
You got everything to prove
and nothing left to lose.

Baby walks on broken legs
Doesn't care that she may fall.
She's a hero to us all,
She's a hero to us.
Baby steps on broken glass
and she's bleeding through her shoes.
Someone always has to lose.
She's a hero to us all.

I'm not afraid anymore of growing old.
If I wake up in the morning and spend my day soaring,
does it mean my day has been sold?
Is there something wrong with arming myself against the cold?
Track Name: The Panic Song
Last night I dreamt I was a ghost.
I screamed as loud as I could, no one could hear me
No one could hear me.

Today I am missing.
Lost in the flames while the people stampede
The people stampede.

Everybody panic, everybody panic!
Everybody panic, everybody panic!
Everybody panic, everybody panic!

I'll take my action where I can.
Don't want to miss out on my chance to make history,
be part of the story.
Besides, who needs a reason
When there's nothing else
When there's nothing else
When there's nothing else to do?!

Being unemployed is such a drag.
Spend my time just smoking fags.
And listening to the news.
And wishing for something to do.

I'm so bored I can't stand it!
Everybody panic, everybody panic!
Everybody panic, everybody panic!
Everybody panic, everybody panic!
Track Name: Turtle Dove
Build me up from the ground
Tear me down without a sound
I am yours, you know.

Build me up from the ground
Tear me down without a sound
I am yours, you know.

Hey, hey, I'm so lucky
I've got both of my feet under me.
Find a penny, pick it up
All your life you'll give a fuck.
Hey, hey, you and me.
This could work, don't you agree?
Love is pain and pain is love.
Won't you be my turtle dove?

Won't you be my turtle dove?
Is it me you're thinking of?

Break away from the night
Let me stay inside the light
I am more than you know.

Build me up I've got both of my feet under me
From the ground Find a penny, pick it up, all your life you'll give a fuck.
Tear me down Hey, hey, you and me, this could work don't you agree?
without a sound Love is pain and pain is love, won't you be my turtledove
I am yours Won't you be my turtle dove?
You know. Is it me you're thinking of?

Know. No.
Know. No.
Know. No.
