Clockpaw Los Angeles, California

When people hear that our songs are this short, they think one thing. When people actually hear our short songs, they think something different. You?

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: She's A Shapeshifter
She’s a shape shifter, a mood lifter
She locks on your lust
Transforms to your trust

And what you want will haunt you
But what you covet will simply love it

She’s a shape shifter, a shrewd grifter
She does what she feels
She is what she reveals
Track Name: Common Sense
I don’t remember throwing a going away
For my common sense
It just slipped away one night
It took all my money, pissed off my friends
And hopped a chain link fence
Sometimes it calls but it never rights
Common sense
Hopped a chain link fence
Track Name: You Say
You say, “Baby, maybe take it slow”
I say, “Maybe, babe, I just don’t know”
I’m moving ahead, you got your ass in the past
Future a go go, gonna be a blast

You say, “Baby, maybe chill your mind”
Wake up, babe, I think one day you’re gonna find
While you’re mouthing off, and you’re carrying on
You’re waiting for a future that’s already come and gone
Track Name: Save The Sunshine
Save the sunshine for the summertime fool
Come and cozy with me when the evening grows cool
Lazing in the moonlight by a midnight black pool
Track Name: Chicken Vindaloo
If I had just one wish, tell you what I’d do
I’d take you back to my place for chicken vindaloo
If I had two wishes, I tell you what they’d be
Chicken vindaloo, babe, and nan for you and me
Track Name: Ice Pick Fingernails
Ice pick fingernails stained raven black
Python arms to hug me ‘til my spine starts to crack
Scissor-hold thighs, fire-brand eyes
That adore and despise me, but don’t analyze me
She takes me as I am
Sometimes the slaughter comes to the lamb
Track Name: Bad Hair Day
The bad guys are at it again
The world is coming to an end
You don’t seem to care
It’s bad hair day
Track Name: Miss 100% Young Hot Model America
Can’t even reach the cradle of the phone
Muscle separating from the bone
Five miles too many for my armchair physique
I think she was fooled ‘til my knees started to creak

She’s like the sun shining in sneakers and sweats
Miss One Hundred Percent Young Hot Model America
Track Name: I Made A Promise To You
I made a promise to you, but I forgot it
Oh, you remember that too? How about that
I swore I would never… something or other
This I promise to you
Track Name: Quick Steps
Quick steps and a scattered mind
Triplicated and dotted lined
Dog-eared at the corners when it gets a little too hard to find

Marble mouth and a vacant stare
Anxiety and a spare
Think outside the box before it pops and you’re left dangling midair

Lily whitening packs a thunder peal
A hose down on the hamster wheel
Faster says the master ‘cause the big hand doesn’t care how you feel
Track Name: Crushes Always Crush Me
Crushes always crush me
The same way in the end
Rejected, respected
Resurrected as the new best friend
Track Name: I Don't Mind
I don’t mind that you can’t stay in one place very long
I don’t mind that you get drunk and sometimes treat me wrong
I don’t mind that you might laugh at me and my ol’ song
As long as your heart don’t mind me
Track Name: When The Weather Turns Warm
Ain’t got no one
To go out on the town with me
Ain’t got no one
To make it all fit
I need someone who needs to work it out a bit
Someone when the weather turns warm
Track Name: The Best Me For You
You loving me lets me be the best me for you
You loving me lets me be the best me for you
You loving me lets me be the best me for you
You loving me lets me be
The very best me for you
