about

Clockpaw Los Angeles, California

Clockpaw is constructed of three elements. One part Doug Shaffer [g, vocs], one part Jason Duplissea [b] and one part John Collins [dr]. You've enjoyed them in such bands as “The Heavy Woolies” and “Knee Jerk Reaction” and “Flavius” and more...

Track Name: The Overthinker
THE OVERTHINKER
Lately
I been thinking greatly
About the fact I overthink
The little things I oughta think innately
Should I ask how you are?
Should I wave from afar?
Should you walk into this empty bar
Track Name: Mean People Suck
MEAN PEOPLE SUCK
You told him that he was cool and he was cruel to you
I think that guy is just mean, you've seen it too
You cried until your eyes turned red
Looking for a place to bury your head
Can I join your heart out on the line?
I think you're fine
That jerk is out of his mind
Out of his mind
Out of his mind
Track Name: Conditioned Response
CONDITIONED RESPONSE
Maybe it’s something in her voice
Pardon me, for I have no choice
Maybe it’s something in her eyes
Pardon me, I’m domesticized
Conditioned response
Anything that my baby wants
Compelled to obey
I wouldn’t have it any other way
Track Name: Cold Feeling
COLD FEELING
I got a cold feeling down my spine
It shocks my soul and it freezes my mind
And I know what I'm gonna find
If I turn to you for love
Track Name: Cuneiform
CUNEIFORM
I got a letter here written in cuneiform
It starts, "The sky is clear and my heart is warm."
But on the day you left, I tucked that note away
Now it's an artifact but damned if it don't read the same
Track Name: My Girlfriend Is A Racist
MY GIRLFRIEND IS A RACIST
My girlfriend is a racist
That's just the case, it's a sad reality
Because she's pretty, intelligent and witty
It's such a pity, 'cause so good to me
But my girlfriend, is a mother#@!ing racist
It's such a waste, it's just not meant to be
Track Name: Kill Me Now
KILL ME NOW
Well, I can't believe I said I love you
You couldn't wait to say you feel the same
After years living alone in sorrow
And in shame
It's like I died and shuffled off to heaven
It's all the joy that my heart can allow
And it won't get better than this moment
So kill me now
Track Name: More Power To You
MORE POWER TO YOU
Do you believe there's something else?
Do you think you'd recognize yourself on the other side?
I'm impressed by your pride
More power to you
Do you believe there's something more?
Do you think that we've been here before and will be again?
Well kudos my friend
More power to you
Track Name: Don't Want To Be Alone
DON'T WANT TO BE ALONE
I asked, "Do you need some time?"
She told me, "Unh-unh, I'm fine.
“And I know that I don't want to be alone..."
I said, "Great."
She said, "Wait...”
“I don't want to be alone, with you."
Track Name: Talk Show
TALK SHOW
Baby, don't go on that talk show
Baby, don't go on that talk show, baby
Baby, don't go on that talk show, they won't treat you fair
Baby don't go on that talk show, they don't really care
Track Name: Into The Wild
INTO THE WILD
Temper, temper, such a tantrumous child
She hid her teeth behind that hypnotic smile
But if you can't tame the cat
There's a solution to that
Release her into the wild
Track Name: Breaking In Is Hard To Do
BREAKING IN IS HARD TO DO
Sitting in my car waiting for the back door
With the A.M. radio
The neighbors pay no attention
'Cause no one really knows
When she walks out and drives away
I'll wait until the inning ends
Break inside, take what's mine
And never see my home again
Track Name: Punk Rock Music
PUNK ROCK MUSIC
I'm intrigued by punk rock music
It's loud and vicious but don't confuse it with heavy metal
Though it will get all your anguish out
Punk rock music is all about everyday problems
And the people who got 'em
And I like people who like
Punk rock music
Track Name: Sleepyhead
SLEEPYHEAD
Rise and shine, sleepyhead
Everyone that you know is dead
You've snoozed your cares away
Whatchoo gonna dare to dream today?
Track Name: Opp 'n' Circumstance
OPP 'N' CIRCUMSTANCE
The desert, it erupted in flame
And we knew the world, it would not be the same
Destruction, without a hitch
Congratulations, now you're a son of a bitch
Science, twisted to our demands
Even as I can't wash off this blood from my hands
The mushroom, in a flash it unfurled
I'm become Death, the destroyer of worlds
I'm become Death, the destroyer of worlds
I'm become Death, the destroyer of worlds
Track Name: Cardiac Arrest
CARDIAC ARREST
What the hell are you lookin’ at, idiot?
It takes a few drinks until I start feelin’ it
A bad antidote for the pain that’s in my chest
Is it my old broken heart or is it just cardiac arrest?
Track Name: Thank You/Damn You
THANK YOU/DAMN YOU
Thank you for seeing through my lies
But damn you, you could at least act surprised
I made mistakes and for your sake I tried to hide
But you wouldn’t fake it
For my sake and for your pride
