about

The Trillions Richmond, Virginia

Richmond, Virginia based The Trillions siphon sounds from their favorite high-intensity bands: some pop wizardry from The Strokes, big-and-loud drums from Led Zeppelin and The Who, a dose of bombastic shred and guitar feedback from Pinkerton-era Weezer, smears of vocal attitude from The Buzzcocks, all drizzled with some topical lyrics and harmonies à la The Beatles, The Zombies, or Dr. Dog. ... more

Track Name: It's Getting Old
We all know what you're about to tell us
And we all own what you're about to sell us

So if that is all that's in it for us
Well don't be surprised when we erupt in one big chorus

It's getting old

Take your seat as the curtain furls now
Hear the beat, see the pretty girl now
She sings at us in first person plural now
But she stands for a sit down and take it world now

So if that is all that's in it for us
Well don't be surprised when we erupt in one big chorus

It's getting old
Track Name: Blessing In Disguise
I picked every lock in my mind
Only to find out I'm deaf, dumb, numb, and blind
Why must all I learn hurt me so?

Why must all I learn have to hurt me so?
Like a color so bright that it blinds
Painting a sad scene of a setting sun
While I watch for my new moon to rise
I don't know, but everybody tells me otherwise -
It's a blessing in disguise

I see what I feel in my dreams
Just a taste of the music, it stings - I know that it's real
Why must all I hear hurt me so?

Why must all I hear have to hurt me so?
So that every note burns like a spice
Singing a sad song to a setting sun
While I howl for my new moon to rise
I don't know, but everybody tells me otherwise -
It's a blessing in disguise
Track Name: Right 'til Proven Wrong
We don't know, but we don't mind
It's no accident, it's by design

You secret keepers keep us entertained
And rot away our need to have it all explained

No wonder then that all you say is right
Yeah you're right
You're right
You're right until you're proven wrong

Magic books from up above,
Electric rumor mills we know and love
They scare us all day long, and calm at night
And every word is knowledge at first sight

So how am I gunna to fight it if you're right?
Yeah you're right
You're right
You're right until you're proven wrong

Laws are made and bills are signed
They tell me what to do with my mind
Print it on a press and bind it too
And quote some liars, thieves and thugs who say it's true

It doesn't matter what you write you're right
Yeah you're right
Right until you're proven wrong, you're right
Yeah you're right
You're right
You're right until you're proven wrong
Track Name: Dead Meat
Underline what you want
Circle twice what you need a lot
Pick and choose, choose and win
Win or lose, win some lose some

Understand what you got
Understate all that you do not
Undergo to overtake
Undertake to overcome these twenty-odd years
Even prime years were odd
Twenty light years from where I wanna be

It starts or it ends
It breaks or it surely bends
Has to run has to work
Has to live or work around it

Knock one down, knock one up
Knock one down, down a couple rounds
Round and round, round and round
I get around but I can't get around these twenty-odd years
Even prime years were odd
Twenty light years from where I wanna be

Twenty-odd years
Even prime years were odd
Twenty light years from where I wanna be
Track Name: 300 Friend Limit
You can't have too many friends

You can tell friends by the way they never have to fight
You can tell - watching them bare their teeth but never bite
They don't get all that upset
All they do is grin and bare their pearly whites

You can't have too many friends

Some kinds of friends might get jealous
They'll burn and their boil but not tell us
If his hair caught fire, please don't point it out

You can see all of your friends go off and take a lead
You can see - stretching their legs and get just what they need
They all seem to follow a dream
I would but my bad one it don't ever leave

You can't have too many friends
Track Name: 1984
Hey - when I get home at night, I check on you
But you've been checking on me too
You're looking up my skirt and taking notes
All my effects you left askew
Who knew my little world would so impress
Wish I could say the same for you
And your peephole obsession
I don't need your full confession, no

How do I get you out of my life?

Hey - the miracle of life had long expired
You discovered it's a curse
So you and your friends cast computer spells
To keep us from getting any worse
For 30 years of 1984
And your peephole profession
I don't need your full confession

How do I get you out of my life?
Track Name: Extinction Blues
I gotta know
Yeah I gotta know
I gotta know how we're gonna go
Are we gonna wipe out just like everyone else?

Are we the sons of dinosaurs?
Doomed 'cuz we stomp and bite and roar?

I gotta know
Yeah I gotta know
I gotta know how we're gonna go
Are we gonna wipe out just like everyone else?

Are we the sons of flightless birds?
Doomed to be stomped by human herds?

Oh no here we go - the way of the dino
Now they're gone and buried in rock for too long
Oh no here we go - the way of the dodo
Now they're gone, nobody remembers their song

Oh no here we go - bye bye
Bye Bye
Track Name: Symphomaniac
Where do you suppose that we're going?
We're taking it fast but we're slowing
You know that I can't believe that
We're gonna run out of steam at all

Lend to me two eyes that see
Two ears that hear a clear and perfect melody yeah
Lend to me a symphony
I'll show you what I mean by a mean harmony yeah

What do you think that you're hearing?
You're bored to tears but you're cheering
You know I'll never believe that
We're gonna run out of steam at all

Lend to me two eyes that see
Two ears that hear a clear and fearless melody yeah
Lend to me a symphony
I'll show you what I mean by a mean harmony yeah

Are you afraid that we're stalling?
We move ahead but we're crawling
You know that I don't believe that
We're gonna run out of steam at all

Lend to me two eyes that see
Two ears that hear a clear and fearless melody yeah
Lend to me a symphony
I'll show you what I mean by a mean harmony yeah
Track Name: Sunburn War
Oh when I was a boy, had it all figured out
What to fear, what to doubt
Kinda all freaked me out
Rightly so. Rightly so.

Well I heard what you say
That my line points both ways
A beginning, an end, laced with time that won't bend
But it does, yes it does.

Oh when I grow up a good honest man
No more lies when I speak
No more swims up shit creek
Like I do - always do

Well I heard what you say
That my line points both ways
A beginning, an end, laced with time that won't bend
But it does, yes it does.

Well some see an end - a closed universe
But if I keep keeping on
I might survive the sunburn war

Oh when I sleep to dream
A man comes to me
Eyes rolled back - mind is gone
Wants to hotwire the bomb
Says we all can't belong
Track Name: Friendzy
Everywhere you go - all your life is on display to me
In and out of bars, laugh, cry, a tragicomedy
You're sick of getting sick, and you're tired of overtiring
Well, I know because I read your little diary

I don't know if I can let go
Once they bind you to me
Do you mind? Do you mind
Once they bind you to me?

I always see your face but you're never saying hi to me
On your statusphere where it's clear for all to see
Would it kill you - no - would it hurt you to subscribe to me?
Won't you wanna read my little diary?

Oh no - I don't know if I can let go
Once they bind you to me
Do you mind? Would you mind
Once they bind you to me?
Track Name: Dream To Sleep
Can I sympathize?
Can I care by looking into someone else's eyes?
Should I be scared
to put to sleep a dream that doesn't matter anymore?

Or am I gonna write
A letter to the editor that he might never read?
How'm I gonna write?
How'm I gonna sleep at night?

Like a separate living thing
With its own voice repeating
"Will it hurt, Charlie, will it sting?
When you put this dream to sleep?
When you put your dream to sleep?"

Put your dream to sleep

Can I sympathize?
Can I care by looking in the little bugger's eyes?
Should I be scared
that dream don't matter anymore?

How'm I gonna write
A letter to the editor that he might never read?
How'm I gonna write?
How'm I gonna sleep at night?

Like a separate living thing
With its own voice repeating
"Will it hurt, Charlie, will it sting?
When you put this dream to sleep?"

Put your dream to sleep
Track Name: Wish You Well
You - you gave notice
And we gave notice too
You'll get noticed
And we'll get noticed too

And one day soon
We'll all sing a tune
Like we used to do

We will wish you well
We will wish you well
May the sun shine on you
We will wish you well

We ran aground in feel-good sound
We rode our lifeboats back to town
It was explained that it was dangerous for us to stick around
So it goes and so we went
To what or where we just can't tell
Even so, we wish you well
