Murphy's Kids Richmond, Virginia

Murphy's Kids are here to have a blast and to leave everyone from the front row to the back of the bar tired, sweaty and grinning from ear to ear... and they've been doing so up with their blend of reggae, punk, ska and psychedelic rock since 1999.

Track Name: Secretly
When I look out at all my wasted time,
I think I might be late for my life.
Even with all of this stopping and starting
I can't wait for the finish line.

And though I might be down on myself sometimes,
and though I might be down on myself sometimes...

Secretly I think I'm a winner
Secrelty I think I am ok
Secretly I think I'm smart, think I'm good, think I'm healthy.
I might be maladjusted or well-indebted if you listen to what folks say
Secretly I think I'm a winner, think I am ok.

When I think of all the things I've been doing,
I know a thousand ways, to screw around
If I could roll up all this time and smoke it,
it'd be high noon til the sun went down.

and I've got nothing to say in my defense,
but my time is under new management.

In the clutch I might not always come through,
But I've had a few good chances, I've had my turn at bat.
I might not always be there when you need me to,
but I want to tell you that....
Track Name: Knowing (That You're Dying)
We would always say that your commute wasn't very safe.
But you've got to get to work some kinda way.
Monday to Friday, you mount up to get up that bridge.
For the early shift.

Morning traffic is an army of machines that have a reputation for being unforgiving.
18 on the pavement, 18 on the floor will wreck your ass just as sure as you're born.

When you meet your maker do want to expect it, or do you want it quick?
A couple more pills might do the trick.
They were here to help me, now I can't tell the night from the day...

Don't you know that the drugs will never do
what your doting mom and dad had set out for you.
You were supposed to make it, find something fulfilling.
Instead you'll make a fucking killing.

Get on. get on. GET ON.

Get on with making memories before you are won,
Come on, COME ON, knowing that you're dying makes life twice as fun.

Don't you know that you might not see the seams
of the veil that keeps you blinded, and darkens your dreams.
It's too late when you find out what it means,
that the light you've been missing is coming down in reams!
Track Name: Gold Circle Blues
Hey out there with your empty pockets, your wallets open wide.
I think I see you 40 yards out from stage right.
With your caste system wrist band, you tell me about the spite.
You tell me about how it came along with the ticket price.

Is this how it's gonna be?
What's the new priority?

Fuck the gold circle tonight,
If you want to get the show off
if you want to get the show off.
Sorry about the cheap seats,
lord that just ain't right.

Hey out there in the geo metro, with the name plate fallin off
I think I saw you drinking a 40oz in the parking lot.
You can't get down front, but you can get on down.
Maybe you were part of the crew from out of town.

Is this how the story goes?
I hate the first 20 rows!
