The Rattlenecks Eau Claire, Wisconsin

After spending their formative years singing and playing guitar in the rolling hills of Eleva-Strum, veterans Jim Pullman, Todd Barneson, and Gabe Koxlien mixed their old chemistry into a new batch of songs.

Track Name: The State Of My Union
It's time to start drinkin'
Cause I've started thinkin'
How things in this world just ain't right
Maybe drink half the bottle & drown all my sorrows
And pour myself away for the night
It's not from a lady
Cause you couldn't pay me
To put my heart near those train tracks again
& it's not from being unhealthy
Unless you count unwealthy
In each case I'd just phone a friend

I might just go insane
If I don't dip my brain
In whiskey or whatever catches my sight
I'm gettin' my mind pickled tonight

Please excuse my behavior
I might need a savior
I swear I'm not tryin to be rude
But its worth repeatin this story each evening
As long as I get in the mood
Life's gave me some lemons
And I thank the sweet heavens
That I know just what to do
Put a twist in this drink and the rest in the sink
And forget about something with you

I might just go insane
If I don't dip my brain
In whiskey or whatever catches my sight
I'm gettin' my mind pickled tonight

In whiskey or whatever catches my sight
I'm gettin' my mind pickled tonight
Track Name: So Bad
I want you so bad
So bad
Some things you just cant have
You can't have

You look better standing in the sun
But our love has come undone
Am I the only one

This is gonna be
Our last night
Wear each other out
Chasing moon light

You look just as good here now
The waves are crashing all around
Get lost in the sound

On this cold December night
We left each other right

I want you so bad
So bad
Some things you just cant have
You can't have

You look better standing in the sun
But our love has come undone
Am I the only one

I want you so bad
So bad
Some things you just cant have
You cant have

You look better standing in the sun
But our love has come undone
Am I the only one
Track Name: Walk A While
If I were you I'd lay it down
Walk away and leave this town
Plant your seed on solid ground next time
Cause you've seen things
Unspeakable things
And nobody knows the pain you're in

But the scars they prove the healing
Of a broken heart left bleeding
Somehow through it all
The thing just keeps beating

Walk a while
Sing along
Bob your head to your favorite song
Live your life
Leave your dead
Take all the pain
And let it all fall away

You used the blade to cleanse the wound
To wash the devil outta you
But all you got were bandages and bruises
You're all tore up & outta breath
Scared and tired you need some rest
Lookin' for someone to see you through this

But the scars they prove the healing
Of a broken heart left bleeding
Somehow through it all
The thing just keeps beating

Walk a while
Sing along
Bob your head to your favorite song
Live your life
Leave your dead
Take all the pain
And let it all fall away
Track Name: Gravity
This one is all for me
Lose myself in harmony
Cut my soul from gravity
This one is all for me

It's been years, so many years
Wounds have healed the jealous years
Sticks and stones, they never broke no bones
But your words haunt when I'm alone

This one is all for me
Lose myself in harmony
Cut my soul from gravity
This ones all for me
Track Name: 2 A.M.
Its like when the lights
Come on
In a bar
At 2 A.M.
It just looks horrible
And now it's over
And the girl sittin' across from you
That you don't even know
She put on quite a show

Everyone spills out into the street
A blend of goodbye
And where eyes meet
Everyone spills out into the street

Makin' their way to their cars
Or after-bars
And they're wonderin'
Who should I be

It's like when the lights
Come on
In a bar
At 2 A.M.
It just looks horrible
And now its over
And the girl sittin' across from you
That you don't even know
She put on quite a show

It's like when the lights
Come on
In a bar
At 2 A.M.
It just looks horrible
And now it's over
And the girl sittin' across from you
That you don't even know
She put on quite a show

Yeah the girl sittin' across from you
That you don't even know
She put on quite a show
