Michael F. Top shelf throat-ripping fem hardcore of the highest order. Varying tempos, cool melodies and some banshee vocals that leave me begging for a lozenge. No doubt, shut in through 6 months of Vermont winter requires an enormous release when the ice melts; for the ladies of GORGON, it appears to be unleashing an absolute fucking beast of a record on an unsuspecting public. This is some brilliant hardcore. Kudos GORGON; thanks are in order for your suffering... Favorite track: Another Year in Vermont.

Track Name: Hard Candy
who's to blame? this blood on my hands and it's not his
blood on my lips stained bright red drips when I smile
you might say that I'm a hunter
I would say that I am just any other girl
this one was like all the others
he was not mine, but he was guilty just the same
you might say that I'm a hunter
I would say that I am just any other girl
Track Name: I Regret to Say I Can't Attend the Funeral
you might think I'm selfish but I'd say I'm terrified
this past year so many people who I've known have died
we are just young and angry
try to swallow but my throat is dry
and I just can't think clearly
try to write but just sit here and cry
and the punks they all sing
we're born to die whatever life may bring
live fast and die young
can I really be the only one who's not sure
that I numb myself just for fun knowing that it's all we have
these fragile bodies that will crumble into dust
and disappear
lie awake in my bed it will take me in the end
as I close my eyes to sleep
my soft exhale is a scream
even the best tattoos fade
and burnouts all will fade away
memories won't last the night let's celebrate each other's lives
mortality, it frightens me
is it fear that drives this grief I'm feeling
but the punks we all sing
we're born to die whatever life may bring
Track Name: As Emo As We'll Ever Be
some days I wonder what the fuck I'm doing here
today I don't know why I'm out of bed
despite the sun I'm feeling down
this punk kid nate called it my emo frown
but still I'm drowning in my head
alone in my room drinking some $2 swill that somebody called beer
going out tonight there's a punk rock show I hear
so I walk across town in the bitter cold
in spite of my boots I can't feel my toes
but still my wanderlust is near
where do I want to be? far away from you
I guess 3 states ain't far enough to get someone out of your head
where do I go from here? my boots are freezing to the sidewalk
I guess I'd better keep on moving
to the soundtrack of my beating heart
Track Name: Tightwad
this pain in my chest is an old friend
who I bump into from time to time
and whenever we see each other
we stop to catch up and lose track of time
this feeling it is so familiar
as I'm gasping for air
teenage me lost a fight
it's not quite so simple as "take slow, deep breaths"
calm down, girl, calm down
this ain't right
laced tight and tightlaced I'm thin, thin, thin for you
but why, oh, why am I so hungry?
I can't quite think right, my bones are barely settled
but I'll take two
Track Name: I Hear Things Are Just As Bad Down In Lake Champlain
I remember back when I lived in the city
and every breath that I took smelled like trash
the smog kept the sun at bay and we had lights to ward the moon away
and whenever I was hungry plastic food to fill my gut
sometimes it makes me think about humanity
people shooting people just to see how much we bleed
poisoning the food we eat and earth and skies and seas
please don't breed, and we can wipe out our entire species
I turn on the radio while staring at the water
they say I can't even swim today the red algae's in bloom
cos it's 110 degrees from all these toxic cars and factories
and the radio is saying there's a fresh shortage of food
I remember back when I lived in the city
and every breath that I took smelled like trash
and now Lake Champlain it smells the same
is it thanks to all this toxic rain?
I'll pass on the fish
and smile at the flash
Track Name: Another Year in Vermont
another year in vermont
another fall and the leaves are turning brown
a reminder that I'll turn old and grey
like the cold winter days now setting in
I didn't always feel this way
pills and booze in excess to take me away
didn't care if I ever smelled the snow again
winter haze, depression, malaise
frostbitten marrow and blood
when the light is low
a fistful of snow
and a fire to smoke it all out
I have no idea why I do this to myself
born to die where do we get a will to survive?
Track Name: Vermont City Livin'
when I ride the bus at night it feels almost like I live in the city
I stare straight up at a light and it reflects
and I can't see the scenery out the window
since buses mostly look the same
in my head in these moments I escape
to someplace where the buses run past 8 and where
I would maybe not feel so alone
but I know that even with promises of bustle people lights and shows
big cities can be hollow and concrete can be colder than
the darkest vermont winter nights standing knee deep in the snow
so for now vermont it is I'll complain about the college kids
and how it's always cold or muddy
and how empty quiet streets make me feel so alone
but when that gets me down and I leave my day job in this small town
I'll ride the bus at night and feel almost like I live in the city
Track Name: Stealing Secrets, Stealing Lives
standing on a pier away from home drinking a beer
as the sun goes down so silently behind us
it's almost summer in new england but it's 25 degrees
in this sleepy little fucking seaside town
padlocks on the chainlink fence secrets whispered into hands
are left behind but not forgotten
at the navy yard across the bay they see you throw your key away
and hear it when you say the words you'll never speak again
her cigarette clings to her lips as she thinks about
the wire snips and chilly hands that cut the fence
to steal locks from countless strangers
stealing secrets, stealing lives the navy base glows at sunrise
but there are others who can see right through
the darkness of the night
standing on a pier away from home drinking a beer
click a padlock on the fence but I don't know who can hear
it snaps and echoes out across the water and I
walk away alone
padlocks on the chainlink fence secrets whispered into hands
are left behind but not forgotten
on a computer several states away they watch you throw your key away
and save it when you say the words you'll never speak again
you'll never speak again
Track Name: Shut Up!
shut up
shut the fuck up
I don't know what to do no more
shut up
sometimes I wake up on the floor
shut up
shut the fuck up
can't go outside today
I don't know what I'd say
I don't know how I'd breathe
can't you see nothing's wrong with me
shut up
shut the fuck up
Track Name: Street Talk
what makes you think I want to hear you speak?
what lends you to believe that when
you exploit my appearance sexually for your own entertainment
I could possibly take it as a compliment?
you can fuck off
I don't want your unsolicited opinion about how I look or my body
if you can't help but tell me how much you want to ride me
when I walk by on the street I probably will
carve out both your eyes
you can fuck off
Track Name: Hangover Dreaming
is there time before this crumbles to figure out the way to go?
I don't know if we can make it out of this one alive
can you read the secret pages? I'm writing songs between the lines
jaded soldiers' sullen faces can't teach me how to live my life
teach me how to live my life
to swallow your pride is to starve out your soul
I wouldn't tell you unless I knew first hand
it seems I keep on slipping backwards as I try to crawl ahead
I'm so jaded I've forgotten how to scream
there are some days when I can't get out of bed
all I can do is wish I could remember last night's dreams
call out of work, explain that I am sick again
and hope to god that they believe me
past mistakes on my mind
I can't sleep but I am dreaming
I can't say I've learned anything
take a drink to make the pounding go away
