about

Sherman (the band) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Taking their inspiration from the Civil War, specifically General William Sherman, the Philadelphia based Sherman (the band) manages to infuse the intensity of that brimstone march through the South with the lyrical and musical chops of a full fledged DIY rock band.
Somewhere between The Modern Lovers and Crazy Horse, this 3 piece is led by Joe Hardy.

Track Name: Fought Along Time
You thought, fought for a long time
that you're the stick up kid
now sit up kid
and wipe the sleep out of your eyes
your breath smells like lies
you'll believe In the stories and the lullabies

I think we drank the same shit they did
we need to watch ourselves
we keep so much hid
these are funny times
it seems the story unwinds with every twist in the sky

I guess you realized you're better than this
yeah fly away somewhere to a week off somedays kid
and wipe the sleep out of your eyes
your breath smells like lies
and you'll believe the stories and the lullabies
Track Name: We'll See
small words do get home
and you're the one that nobody knows
the protagonist he needs his foes
I heard this morning love hit the road

You tell yourself you got all this time
that's what you tell yourself
its a lie
its a lie

It doesn't matter what state you're in
it doesn't matter what state I'm in
You catch the bus and you catch the train
catch yourself going down the drain

You tell yourself you got all this time
that's what you tell youself
its a lie
its a lie

I think that I recognize this place
there's something familiar about the moonscape
Ive been counting to ten
I set you free
but now you're back again

You tell yourself you got all this time
thats what you tell youself
its a lie
its a lie
Track Name: Go Home
Just like The Ocean
I've been caught in the motion
drowning from the weight of
the things that have made us

and did you think this was a dream
you'd been caught in
where everything was what it seemed
and we spent our time counting

There are lifeboat along the coast
lighthouses run by ghosts
and they know
it's best left alone

And the girl on the stairs
was never the there
just like The Ocean
She's caught in the motion you know

Somewhere in between
it's hard to tell

And the ghosts are out
and the girls shout
which one you gonna take home?
And the ghosts are out
and the girls shout
which one you gonna take home?
And the ghosts are out
and the girls shout
which one you gonna take home?
Track Name: Sickyousaydause
This is a run around
a let down
I thought you'd been around
long enough to know
That every time you let go
you're gonna feel the fall

You can't give up know
blood on the floor and you'll figure this out
but every time you let go
you're gonna feel the fall

I heard this story about a dream
but I waste my time under the money tree
and but every time you let go
you're gonna feel the fall
