about

Shiny Shiny Black Goshen, Indiana

Shiny Shiny Black is a growing Midwestern band with the determination to become a must-see act.

Track Name: Look Me In The Eyes
I found you sleeping in the desert,
you were bleeding and your head hurt.

You could not look me in the eyes,
how did you get here, darling?
You could not look me in the eyes...

I bought some new clothes for you,
I did everything that I could, darling.
How did you get your new dress dirty?
You made love to everyone here,
You made love

You would not look me in the eyes,
how did you get here darling?
You would not look me in the eyes,
can you hear me calling?

Come on and look me in the eyes,
how did you get here, darling?
Come on and look me in the eyes,
can you hear me calling?
Track Name: LoveKill
Waiting here,
I've been waiting here for so long,
wondering,
how things got so...
All I hear,
falling glass and broken rain.
So far above,
so high and lifted up.
Can you hear me?

Either love me, or kill me.
Just don't leave me here.
Either love me, or kill me.
Just don't disappear.

Ever since
they opened up their mouths,
I've been wishing
that I was someone else.
Every day
I pray for you to come.
I can't stay here forever!

Either love me, or kill me.
Just don't leave me here.
Either love me, or kill me.
Just don't disappear.
Track Name: Our Lady Of The Harbor
Lay here waiting in the Garden,
Listen for the cool of day.
Flowers lying 'round my darlin',
Sunset breaking through the shade.

Pray for me, return in autumn.
I've travelled over land and sea.
Crossing over River Jordan,
Pick a banjo on my knee.

Were we naked when we lay here?
Cover me up with leaves.
Sweet the taste, your tree of knowledge,
The fruit was hanging over me.

When you look for Sister Wisdom,
will the sorrow make you blind?
Tip the scales of Truth and Justice,
for mercy is my alibi.

Remind the Lady Of The Harbor,
she has the Light, but can not see.
Walk away in to the darkness,
but then come running back to me.
