"Gone" One day I'm gonna hit the road and I'm not coming back until I'm ready to. Said I'm gonna hit the road, if I never ever come back, well that's ok too. The best place I've ever been is on the road. The best place I've ever been is gone. Put some pavement under the wheels the yellow lines, I play the White Stripes on the stereo Desert sand and winter snow, mountains high, valleys low they're so low. The best place I've ever been is on the road. The best place I've ever been is gone.

"Falling Off the Wagon" Good night, sleep tight Started over again in the morning light You know there's always trouble, honey coming round the bend. If you've fallen off the wagon lately, get back on again. If that morning sun don't shine, and the stars fall from the sky. Turn your black heart into diamonds, let the sorrow make you wise. You know there's always trouble, honey coming round the bend. If you've fallen off the wagon lately, get back on again.

"Hallelujah" Playing in the straw underneath the chairs, people stood around me, their hands up in the air. Hallelujah, Hallelujah The people spoke in tongues to the pounding of the drums, a thousand voices strong with angels and demons everywhere. Hallelujah, Hallelujah Maybe they were crazy, maybe I'm crazy too, there's a fire in my heart, can't get over you. Hallelujah, Hallelujah

"When You Get That Look" When you get that look in your eyes I want to tell you that the world is better now. There's red on the walls, the doors are broken down. Just don't look out the window. Just close your eyes. I don't want to think about it, we're always telling lies. The tears well up in your eyes I want to tell you that the worst is over now There's red in the streets, the peace is broken down. Oh no no... Just don't look out the window. Just close your eyes. I don't want to think about it, we're always telling lies. When you get that look in your eyes I want to tell you that love is all we have, love is all we have, love is all we have. Keep looking out the window. Don't close your eyes. Tell everyone about it, and don't believe the lies.

"Home" She stood there in the sunset, staring at a roadmap, said, "I have no idea where I am. I got off on the wrong ramp and I couldn't find an on ramp. I'm just so tired, I wanna go home." He stood there in his gray suit, the same color as his gray mood, said, "I've given this everything I have!" He worked late into the evening cause his boss had hit the ceiling, said, "I'm just so tired, I wanna go home." I wanna go home I wanna go home I wanna go home Take me home.

"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" Twinkle, twinkle, little star How I wonder, what you are Up above the world so high Like a diamond in the sky Twinkle, twinkle, little star How I wonder, what you are

about

With grooves borrowed from classic American rock n' roll and roots music, this record is infused with old-timey banjos and Duane Eddy and John Fogerty style electric guitar lines for a sound that is unique, yet seems instantly familiar.

“With bigger ideas come bigger sounds and SSB has gone big.” - MP Cavalier, DoItIndy Radio Hour

“Every tune serves the moment that they were written for ... The guitar sound is pure ear candy to me, reminiscent of REM, Petty, and Smiths.” – Ben Cannon, Spark Joy Music

“Shiny Shiny Black's Wild Edges EP shines a light on the worry, fear, angst, & joy that is present in all of us.” – Scott Curtis, Michiana People Podcast

“On my way home, that sound is unmistakable.” – Benjamin Gooding, fan
