about

"Jangly guitars, dazzling daydream shufflers fogged and fuzzed with tambourine claps, organ purrs, spacey-guitars and swaying percussion, throaty howls-and-cooing lullabies, this is the stuff psychedelic-blues-folk dreams are made of... Mad and melodious carousels shot back to the chunky/murky 60's rock, escapades to entrance...you're coming into the cult, now..." - Jeff Milo, The Ferndale Patch

"They too, like my current obsession, Jamaican Queens, possess that crazy-cool Detroit vibe that makes me want to head downtown and vibe with the city...There was absolutely NOTHING to not like about this album." - Alexis Simpson, Noize News

"The Rose Cult musically entices us into the realm of modern psychedelia with Welcome to the Rose Cult...The pleasant pop melodies infused with dateless jam/jazz/pych/folk rock plays like the soundtrack to a Wes Anderson flick." - Chris Vertigo, Shadow and Honey

Track Name: Mary/Like a Charm
She knows she's not the one to falter
If I tried I could let her go
She knows I put her before my water
If she strayed I would run away

Oh if she strayed
I'd run away

She comes when I'm cryin like a baby
She can pacify my mind
She says "baby you're looking so good
when you're smoking cigarettes"

My cigarettes
I won't regret

I put a spell on you
Come walk by my side I can show ya the truth
The sun is shining out today
Come on baby girl I can show you the way

It's working like a charm
Baby I don't mean you no harm
It's working like a charm

Those girls they don't mean a thing
Come on baby girl I'll buy a diamond ring
You know I always tell you the truth
Come on baby girl I like the way ya move

It's working like a charm
Baby I don't mean you no harm
It's working like a charm
Track Name: Shoreline
I was aiming for the wall
but the words they never made it
she was the color of the fall
the season she imitated

don't you go contemplating on me now
we've been ready for this night
it's so easy to say no
even when you don't know how to fight

the words will find a path to you
then all your bad habits will show
despite your effort and truth to do
all that is right in order to grow

walk along the shoreline with me longer
let us measure the scale
if the tides we've known are at our shoulders
then these mountain tops are frail

estimate the growing fears
displayed upon faces of friends
they poke and prod throughout the years
I guess it all just depends

if you're lonely, if you're weary,
if you're broken and sad
two eyes have grown teary
two souls have gone bad

I was aiming for the wall
but the words they never made it...
Track Name: About a Convict's Daughter
I could tell ya bout a convict's daughter
She'll take you to her room and to the slaughterhouse
All her problems comin from her father
She will tear you up and she will
Take a trophy home

I could tell ya, oh I could tell ya

I swear to god I thought she wasn't a goner
I didn't wanna be a notch upon her belt
I could not help but to extend her an offer
I can get you off if
You don't leave me all alone

I could tell ya, oh I could tell ya

She will tear you up and she will
Take a trophy home.
Track Name: Revolution #2
You've got your glasses
I've got my pretty shoes
We look so good that we could kill

This revolution
Needs to happen soon
The time has come for corporate blood to spill

And if you ask me what to do
Get the Cold War Blues

Grab your machine gun
And sing a protest tune
Sing it in the key of flat denial

Long hair and leather
The battle suit for our platoon
Out war will be one fought in style

And if you ask me what to do
Get the Cold War Blues
Track Name: Elizabeth
Well if actions speak louder than words
You can hear but your vision is blurred
I'm trying to move for you, you don't have a clue
You don't have a clue

And you can't come and find me now
I'm too far removed somehow
And New York is too far away
And my mind can't replay
Back that many days

Elizabeth

I try to hide my face
You try to take my masks away
I'll tell you, the gesture is nice
But I get 'em half price
and ain't that a shame?

Elizabeth
Track Name: I'm a Surfer Now
I got my surfboard
And now I feel so cool
When I'm out catchin' waves
Baby, where were you?

Now I feel so good
Now I'm feelin' fine
Now I'm feelin' right, babe

Ah,
I'm a Surfer Now.

I need no lifeboat
Babe, I'm floatin' free
If you're thinkin' of stars,
You're thinking of me.

Now I feel so good
Now I'm feelin' fine
Now I'm feelin' right, babe

Ah,
I'm a Surfer Now.
