about

Tall Walls Long Beach, California

Tall Walls' sun-drenched power-pop is what Buddy Holly might have sounded like if he listened to The Arctic Monkeys and became increasingly socioeconomically and environmentally aware.

Blending a love for three-part harmonies, brass features and pop arrangements. the band's tunes are uptempo and melodic, providing playful social commentary and declarations of unconditional love.

Track Name: Oil & Gas Association
Banned on the books, they’re still drilling in Denton
New York and California we forget to mention
Earthquakes, fresh water’s gone
Skip through your town, then we’re moving on

We’re the oil and gas association
Oil and gas association

And we gotta take a hard line on this
Gotta take a hard line on this
Gotta take a hard line on this 'cause there’s money to be made

Hey, Don Quixote, what you trying to prove?
You’re taking a stand, we’re making you move
And Brookview, Ohio
Hey, there’s millions more
Our drills and our trucks coming to your door

We’re the oil and gas association
Oil and gas association
Deep pockets they rule the nation
Oil and gas association

And we gotta take a hard line on this
Gotta take a hard line on this
Gotta take a hard line on this 'cause there’s money to be made
You know it’s true
There's money to be made
We want it all!

We’re the oil and gas association
Oil and gas association
Go ahead and write a letter to your administration
Oil and gas association

We gotta take a hard line on this
Gotta take a hard line on this
Gotta take a hard line on this 'cause there’s money to be made
Gotta take a hard line on this
Gotta take a hard line on this 'cause there’s money to be made
You know it’s true
There's money to be made
We want it all!
There's money to be made
We’re gonna take it!
Money to be made
Thank you!
Track Name: Coalition of Safe & Affordable Food
We’re gonna patent things that have been here for a million years
By messing with the genes to keep our profits clean
We’re the coalition of safe and affordable food
George Orwell comes by when he’s in the mood
To help us with our lobbying tasks
We only feel safe when the truth is wearing a mask

We’re the coalition
The coalition
The coalition of safe and affordable food

If you want your things the way nature intended
We’re gonna cause confusion, marketplace illusion
We’re the coalition of safe and affordable food
George Orwell comes by when he’s in the mood
To help us with our lobbying tasks
We only feel safe when the truth is wearing a mask

We’re the coalition
The coalition
The coalition of safe and affordable food

Who’s on your team, hey?
Who's on your team, hey?
Who’s on your team -- not us!

We’re gonna patent things that have been here for a million years
By messing with the genes to keep our profits clean
We’re the coalition of safe and affordable food
George Orwell comes by when he’s in the mood
We’re the coalition
The coalition
The coalition of safe and affordable food
Track Name: 1000 Plastic Bottles
I want a new house, and I’m scared of Ebola
I’ve got a green parrot, and I’m a rock 'n' roller
The oil’s dried up, the Earth’s temperature’s heating
I’m scared of Ebola -- it bears repeating

And I don’t know which way the world is headed
But right now it don’t look too good
If there’s an eye of the needle, we better start threading
There’s a thousand plastic bottles in my neighborhood

I’ll take my water from a cup!

There’s a thousand plastic bottles on the gutters and lawns
Even the trash is no good because they’ll never be gone
They’ll make their way out to sea to join the gyrosphere
Millions of pounds for millions of years

And I don’t know which way the world is headed
But right now it don’t look too good
If there’s an eye of the needle, we better start threading
There’s a thousand plastic bottles in my neighborhood

I’ll take my water from a cup!

And the president, he’s a corporation
And my congresswoman, she’s a corporation
The intent of the framers when they formed the nation
To have General Motors on the administration

And I don’t know which way the world is headed
But right now it don’t look too good
If there’s an eye of the needle, we better start threading
There’s a thousand plastic bottles in my neighborhood

I’ll take my water from a cup!

It was the hottest summer that I ever can remember
105 on the 5th of December
And the little kids stand in front of their classes
Should they wave bye-bye as opportunity passes?

And I don’t know which way the world is headed
But right now it don’t look too good
If there’s an eye of the needle, we better start threading
There’s a thousand plastic bottles in my neighborhood

I’ll take my water from a cup!
Track Name: Every Day
Hey, when the morning comes, and the evening, too
And when spring arrives frozen the winter’s dew
I’ll still feel the same, same way I do each day
This love I have for you is never ever gonna change

I’m gonna love you every day
I’m gonna love you every day and every single night

I don’t have no better words for this here second verse
But it is not a curse because I’m not feeling hurt
I don’t have no better way to say what I just said
So I’ll say it anyway -- I’m never ever gonna change

I’m gonna love you every day
I’m gonna love you every day and every single night

I’ve been going through some times
And I would like to say
I wanna make you all mine
Looking further every day (yeah)

I’m gonna love you every day
I’m gonna love you every day and every single night
Track Name: Government Boy
I don’t want you off my back
I just want you on my side
You say you’re here to help
Everybody knows that you lie

Hey, government government boy
Hey, government boy

We’re here in an election season
The longest emergency
You’re still denying logic and reason
Stonewalling by the rising sea

Hey, government government boy
Hey, government boy

[George W. Bush:] There's no in-between -- you're either with us or you're with the enemy.

[Ronald Reagan:] I've always felt that the nine most terrifying words in the English language are, "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help."

Here lies Ozymandias
Sign says king of kings
Looks like the ruins of Atlantis
His suitors, they bought him his rings

Hey, government government boy
Hey, government boy
Hey, government boy, boy, boy!
Track Name: I Got Hope
I’ve got hope
It’s like a rope
Or a pope
That helps me cope
Don’t you ever leave me -- we’re still at chapter one
Of a good book, believe me, and we’ll have so much fun

I’ve got hope
It’s like a rope
Or some dope
That helps me cope
Because your love here is good for my soul
You open up the universe instead of plugging a hole
I’ve got hope

I’ve got faith
In this place
We create
In outer space
We’ve landed on the moon like bearded pioneers
Headed west, treacherous, then the big blue sea appears
I’ve got hope

Don’t you ever leave me, we’re still at chapter one
Of a good book, believe me, and we’ll have so much fun
I’ve got hope

I've got a chariot, it's gonna carry me
It's gonna carry me down the line
A million other sweet songs for others
This time I hope, this time I hope...
I got faith In this place
We create in outer space
I got hope
Track Name: Furniture (alt. mix)
Moving trucks are coming soon
They’ll be done before Sunday noon
Picking up your stuff and my stuff, too
Take and old place and make it brand new
Your furniture will merge with mine....

We’re gonna put our furniture together
We’re gonna turn this house into a home
And then we won’t be all alone
Gonna turn this house into a home

Your vintage iron birdcage and chair
My red credenza by the stairs
Your sofa’s so emotional, cobalt blue
The picture that I gave as a gift to you
Your furniture will merge with mine....

We’re gonna put our furniture together
We’re gonna turn this house into a home
And then we won’t be all alone
Gonna turn this house into a home
Gonna turn this house into a home

Your furniture will merge with mine....

Like strings make a twine
And twine makes a rope
Rope helps you climb
This day’s filled with hope!

We’re gonna put our furniture together
We’re gonna turn this house into a home
And then we won’t be all alone
Gonna turn this house into a home
Gonna turn this house into a home
Gonna turn this house into a home
