about

13 Saints Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The music of 13 Saints is a cross between crunching hard rock and melodicism, with guitar-driven songs that are hooky yet hard-
edged. They combine strong
melodies with loud power chords, incorporating rock and roll and punk elements but with
alternative rock sensibilities, jangly guitars, and the pace and riffs of punk rock.

Track Name: Deep
Forgive me, what the hell
Did I disturb you at finding yourself
Well pass the reality to me
Forgive me for the pain
I just crashed your ethereal plane
Sayonara to your aura, now babe
A support group just for me
To help me cope with serenity
Get my ration of compassion for the week
Yes we can, yes we can, yes we can, yes we can
Yes we can – but we just don’t do it
Yes we can, yes we can, yes we can, yes we can
Yes we can – but we just don’t do it
Yes we can, yes we can, yes we can, yes we can
Yes we can – but we just don’t do it
Now
We don’t do deep
Excuse me, do you mind
I got true psychics here on the line
Gonna tell me what the problem is with me
I beg you to forgive
I’m so damn insensitive
Sayonara to your aura, now babe
Telepathy you don’t say
My tea leaves tell me I better pray
Get my ration of compassion for the day
Chorus
We don’t do deep
We don’t do deep
We don’t do deep
We don’t do deep
Track Name: Mother May I
Cheek to cheek and eye to eye
Yeah yeah yeah
Sugar sweet coat it I’ll try
Yea yeah yeah
See I’m gonna break
The things that bind me
Mother may I know I’m making a break
You can’t save me
Cheek to cheek and eye to eye
Yeah yeah yeah
Hand in hand and hip to hip
Yeah yeah yeah
Cherry loose lips sink the ship
Yeah yeah yeah
You see I‘m gonna taste the things that drown me
Mother may I know I’m making a break
You can’t save me
Mother may I know I’m making a break
You can’t save me
Hand in hand and hip to hip
Yeah yeah yeah
Tit for tat and side by side
Yeah yeah yeah
Cut the fat or suicide
Yeah yeah yeah
See how hard I hit the things that shame me
Mother may I know I’m making a break
You can’t save me
Mother may I know I’m making a break
You can’t save me
Mother may I know I’m making a break
You can’t save me
Mother may I know I’m making a break

Track Name: Evel Knievel
Hard living’s gonna take a toll
I did it for the love of rock n roll
A lot can happen when you stay out late
And I think it’s great
Winning ugly’s gonna leave a scar
Stand up and show ‘em who you are Bloody knuckles and a busted tooth
You gotta find the truth
Foot on the throttle
Don’t be no bitch
Every mile of road you know you got
Two miles of ditch
Push it to the limit
Come back alive
Even if you win you lose if you
If you don’t survive
If you’re a hero on a righteous path
Be prepared for the aftermath
If you’re gonna leave your cities in flames
You gotta name some names
So you say you want a piece of me
Come on over I got two or three
This ain’t no time for you to cut and run
You gotta get shit done
Chorus
Yeah yeah yeah Yeah yeah yeah Yeah
If you’re a hero on a righteous path
Be prepared for the aftermath
If you’re gonna leave your cities in flames
You gotta name some names
Chorus
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah
Track Name: Smile
Have you seen what lies in between
What is real and what is the dream
The miles walked versus just the miles
Come on, come on just smile
What’s that twist that’s behind your eyes
What’s the gist now of your desire
Let it simmer for just a while
Come on, come on just smile
Hell yeah Hell yeah Hey now
What’s the bang now
What’s the rumble
Pick it up
So what, so you stumble
You’re brimming over now just like a child
Come on, come on just smile
Your play it safe turns to dangerous
Good intentions fail all of us
Your cold shoulder to the brink of wild
Come on, come on just smile
You cram your feet into saddle shoes
And walk the streets puzzled and confused
Rain rain dancing all the while Come on, come on just smile
Hell yeah Hell yeah Hey now
Chorus
Chorus Repeat
Come on just smile
Come on just smile
Come on just
Smile
Track Name: Better
Now put on your high heels
Don’t care what they say when you’re here
Yes you look like a real queer
Holding back angry tears
Do you put them away when the boys are around
You’re the best drag queen in town
Now you like your corn fields
Your pick-up truck with the big wheels
You keep a gun for your measure
You shoot your friend at your leisure
Now you’re feeling so sad
You put your bro in the ground
You’re the best dumb fuck in town
8 a.m. I’m under the weather
By happy hour I feel better
Better
Now put on your silk dress
You paint your face up so fine
By 10 o’clock you’re a real mess
Looks like you’ve wasted your time
But when you walk through the door you want your jesters and clowns
You’re the best dick tease in town
You’re the best drag queen in town
You’re the best dumb fuck in town
You’re the best dick tease in town
Now I feel better
I feel better
I feel better
I feel better
I feel better
Track Name: Genius
I’m too fat to wear these jeans
I make just enough to live beyond my means
I’m all risk, no reward
And I wound up here to keep from getting bored
Uptown let down all night long
Downtown go round come on
Here I go, going nowhere
Over-thinking shit again
I don’t look back, I don’t conform
But that’s not the fire I use to keep me warm
It’s up ahead and here and now
And with a little luck I’ll see you there somehow
Uptown let down all night long
Downtown go round come on
Here I go, going nowhere
Over-thinking shit again
Going back to where I started
Never knowing where I been
There I go, going nowhere
Over-thinking shit again
Going back to where I started
Never knowing where I been
Track Name: Asleep at the Wheel
I knew that you were young and shoulda known that you’d be dumber
Still I buy
Last-minute crap you’re selling is it Denmark that I’m smelling
Open wide
The message that you’re leaving telling me how much you’re grieving
Was a lie
But I won’t hurt your feelings as I smash you through the ceiling
In my mind
Self-inspection would be your redemption
Give it a try
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel again
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel again
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel again
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel again
You promised me the moon and all the booze I can consume
Where do I sign
Ain’t even yours to give your head is leaking like a sieve and
Still you try
And I am just as dumb for thinking you could get it done
Still I whine
Put my foot down on the plan cause I can do it yes I can
Now’s the time
Self-inspection could be my redemption
Give it a try
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel again
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel again
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel again
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel again
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel
I’m never gonna sleep at the wheel
Track Name: The Pledge
Graphic violence high definition
Scholastic lunches zero nutrition
The dirty picture of a hooker and a preacher
A TV movie about a schoolboy hot for teacher
I pledge allegiance to the flag
Don’t let this place become a drag
We got more to do than brag
Complex issues quickly defined
Let bumper stickers speak your mind
Mail-order bride kept on a choker
You lost your mortgage in a backroom game of poker
Chorus
I been jacked up held down hassled by the man
And you’ve been jacked up held down hassled by the man
The left’s been jacked up held down hassled by the man
The right’s been jacked up held down hassled by the man
Jacked up held down hassled by the man
Jacked up held down hassled by the man
Jacked up held down hassled by the man
Jacked up held down
Jacked up held down hassled by the man
Jacked up held down hassled by the man
Jacked up held down hassled by the man
Jacked up held down
Hassled by the man
Track Name: In My Head
Disassembled lives and ravaged truth
Disaffected wives and savaged youth
Unrepentant pride blank neighborhoods
Co-dependent slide and damaged goods
Misunderstood
Bad for good
Now I’m singing your
Goddamn song for the rest of my life
Parasitic friends and razorblades
Paralytic trends and failing grades
Adolescent dreams dead on the ground
Convalescent schemes among the drowned
Chorus
Misdirected goals and drunken guilt
Disrespected souls turn black and wilt
Manufactured fright and fading hope
All elusive light failure to cope
Chorus
The rest of my life
The rest of my life
For the rest of my life
Track Name: Lightning
Now there’s a lot I’d like to say to you
Betcha there’s a ton of shit for me
I’d like to pick your brain
Dump your thoughts right in my vein
I know they’d shock my frame like lightning
Lightning, lightning, lightning
Now what all is said and done it’s done again
Now take that back no hammer me
I’ll take it across my back
Add the character that I lack
It’ll give me a heart attack like lightning
Lightning
Never mind, never mind, never mind
Don’t stand and claim
Don’t wave your flag in the bath at me
Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey
Now there’s a lot I’d like to say to you
Betcha there’s a ton of shit for me
I’d like to pick your brain
Pour your thoughts right in my vein
I‘m sure it would shock my frame like lightning
Lightning, lightning, lightning
Track Name: Primadonna
