---------------------------------------------
Marc Blackwell's debut CD, "Bring Me Trouble," is indie rock with growl and attitude. There's some quirky, some dark, some catchy, some moody, some fun. Quentin Tarantino should love it. It's got bad places, complications and dancin' with Satan; pretty girls, barefoot girls and girls who hate Marc; witches, vampires and a lot of fire. A highlight on all songs are Marc's deep gripping vocals.

Track Name: Bring Me Trouble
BRING ME TROUBLE
I don't get motivated till the straits are dire
I don't get out of my seat until the heat breathes fire
I get complacent. I feel a little bit tired
I never break a sweat unless the sh** gets higher

Bring me trouble. Trouble's what I need
Bring me trouble. On trouble I feed
Bring it double. Make me bleed
Bring me trouble. It's what I need

It seems like I'm useless till it's panic time
I need adrenaline let loose in a bind
I get jump started from the urgency
When they're running scared, I steal their energy

Bring me trouble. Trouble's what I need
Bring me trouble. On trouble I feed
Bring it double. Make me bleed
Bring me trouble. It's what I need

Hey Mr. Trouble, where you at
Hey Mr. Trouble, why don't you come around
Hey Mr. Trouble, you know you can't beat me
Mr. Trouble, yeah, you're going down

Bring me trouble. Trouble's what I need
Bring me trouble. On trouble I feed
Bring it double. Make me bleed
Bring me trouble. It's what I need
Track Name: I Gotta Stay
I GOTTA STAY
I’m walking down a street
I don’t know nobody’s name (they don’t know me)
I got no friends here
I don’t see anyone I wanna meet

It’s a lonely town and it’s a lonely day
I feel my lonely heart, but I gotta stay

Can’t go home no more (No, I gotta stay)
Kicked right down to the floor (I gotta stay)
It’s feeling like hard times (But I gotta stay)
Seems like a place I’ll hate (But I gotta stay)

It’s a bad looking place
I don’t see anything good (it’s all insane)
They wanna see me break
Everything they throw down, I have to take

It’s an evil town and it’s an evil day
I feel an evil stare, but I gotta stay

Can’t go home no more (No, I gotta stay)
Kicked right down to the floor (I gotta stay)
It’s feeling like hard times (But I gotta stay)
Seems like a place I’ll hate (But I gotta stay)

They’ll try to make me be how they want me to be
Do what they want me to do
See what they want me to see
It’s hell they’re gonna put me through
But I gotta stay

Can’t go home no more (No, I gotta stay)
Kicked right down to the floor (I gotta stay)
It’s feeling like hard times (But I gotta stay)
Seems like a place I’ll hate (But I gotta stay)

Can’t go home no more (No more no more)
Kicked right down to the floor (Right down to the floor)
It’s feeling like hard times (Feeling like hard times)
Seems like a place I’ll hate (But I gotta stay)
Track Name: Bad Horizon
BAD HORIZON
It's a bad horizon that I'm staring at
There's a long dark road leading back
Regret is pushing me as the sun is shutting down
Redemption can't be found here in this tired old ghost town

It's a bad horizon, looks a lot like death
It's a bad horizon, looming straight ahead
The red looks like fire on black clouds rising up from hell
It's a bad horizon, and I don't feel well

My fears and failure ride shotgun seat
As I'm driving home where she hates me
A sandstorm hits my heart, I swear I can hear it moan
My mind picks at my flaws like a vulture on dead bones

It's a bad horizon, looks a lot like death
It's a bad horizon, looming straight ahead
The red looks like fire on black clouds rising up from hell
It's a bad horizon, and this won't end well

That lightning in the distance is the devil's electric chair
Like a dead man walking, I'm headed there

It's a bad horizon, looks a lot like death
It's a bad horizon, looming straight ahead
The red looks like fire on black clouds rising up from hell
It's a bad horizon, and this won't end well
Track Name: I Got Friends
I GOT FRIENDS
I got friends with serious problems
I got friends on the edge and wobblin'
I'd like to help, but I got my own stuff right now
I got friends who drink too much
I got friends who do some drugs
I do some too, but I think I know when to stop

I don't know where we're all goin'
I can't see what the future's showin'
I wish I could, but all I see is haze right now

I got friends dancin' with Satan
I got friends whose minds are wastin'
We're not that bad, we're just boys and girls with time to use
We're your friends. We're your sons and daughters
We're like ghosts. Do you feel haunted
We might be real, if we could just fit in somehow

I don't know where we're all goin'
I can't see what the future's showin'
I wish I could, but all I see is haze right now

We all feel invisible
And we think we're indestructible
That's how we live, we crash and burn where no one sees
All my friends play their music loud
All my friends like to yell and shout
We're not that deaf, maybe we got some things to say

I don't know where we're all goin'
I can't see what the future's showin'
I wish I could, but all I see is haze right now
Track Name: Her Rusty Razor
HER RUSTY RAZOR
She knows my weaknesses, I let her get too close
She knows where to cut so I bleed the most
She could use a gun but that would be too quick
She could use a knife but that would be to clean
She likes to rip

Her rusty razor, jagged edge
Tears my soul to bloody shreds
Spiteful woman carves my heart from my chest
Her rusty razor makes a mess
Dirty and infected
Her rusty razor does not rest

She liked my face all smooth, when we used to kiss
She knew how to shave, man it was a gift
Wielding the straight blade, she had an artful hand
Around my jugular, she used her master’s touch
Like Rembrandt

Her rusty razor, jagged edge
Tears my soul to bloody shreds
Spiteful woman carves my heart from my chest
Her rusty razor makes a mess
Dirty and infected
Her rusty razor does not rest

She mixes gasoline in my shaving cream
To add sting to the pain
There’s only one way I’ll get relief
I pray, I pray she lights the flame

Her rusty razor, jagged edge
Tears my soul to bloody shreds
Spiteful woman carves my heart from my chest
Her rusty razor makes a mess
Dirty and infected
Her rusty razor does not rest
Track Name: Chasing Shooting Stars
CHASING SHOOTING STARS
I’m staring straight ahead, I tore off the rear view
Motorcycle growls, brake never gets used
Pipe's spittin' flame, pavement burning tire
Night and day, riding fire

Chasing shooting stars
Racing after rainbows
Wondering where you are
Wondering where's my pot of gold
Chasing shooting stars
Exhausting every avenue
I'm chasing shooting stars
Until I find you
I'll be chasing shooting stars

Some days I run on fumes, it's wearing down my heart
I gotta have your kiss gimme a kick start
Battery near dead, light's been on too long
Chug-a-chug, spark not strong

Chasing shooting stars
Racing after rainbows
Wondering where you are
Wondering where's my pot of gold
Chasing shooting stars
Exhausting every avenue
I'm chasing shooting stars
Until I find you
I'll be chasing shooting stars

Continental US, all over America
Searching for a ghost, I'm finding only dust

Chasing shooting stars
Racing after rainbows
Wondering where you are
Wondering where's my pot of gold
Chasing shooting stars
Exhausting every avenue
I'm chasing shooting stars
Until I find you
I'll be chasing shooting stars
Track Name: I Know It's Complicated
I KNOW IT'S COMPLICATED
I feel my heart beat on a Saturday night
Watching pretty girls under flashing lights
Is there one for me, is there one for me
I see them leave the clubs with these awful guys
I know it can't be good, it can't be wise
Now I'm wondering, it's got me wondering

I know it's complicated
There's lust unsatiated
Will I ever understand
Can I be satisfied
I know I'm probably jaded
There's time, I should be patient
It's so hard to comprehend
Maybe I'll just give in
I know it's complicated

I feel the rain fall down out a' the sky
Splashing on my face, so I'm asking why
There's gravity, why's there gravity
I see houses bein' all run down
The bottles in the streets and I don't know how
There's depravity, how's there depravity

I know it's complicated
There's greed unsatiated
Will I ever understand
Can I be satisfied
I know I'm probably jaded
There's time, I should be patient
It's so hard to comprehend
Maybe I'll just give in
I know it's complicated

I read on the web, what politicians say
About our problems and about the way
I should be living, I should be living
I hear a little voice on my radio
Givin' us the answer .. Is that all we know
About the big things, about the big things

I know it's complicated
There's greed unsatiated
Will I ever understand
Can I be satisfied
I know I'm probably jaded
There's time, I should be patient
It's so hard to comprehend
Maybe I'll just give in
I know it's complicated
Track Name: Barefoot Girl
BAREFOOT GIRL
I thought she was simple, I thought she was free
From the conventions that this world heeds
I thought she had her own mind up inside that head
I thought we’d live our own lives but we’re living theirs instead

The barefoot girl, that I once knew
She’s all grown up with a big hairdo
Got the makeup on and designer styles
The girl I loved has been gone awhile
That barefoot girl, she used to make me smile

She once had true vision, she once had her own
Personal style, but now that’s gone
She’s all into those fashion, lifestyle magazines
Buying up trendy products, living out another’s consumer dream

The barefoot girl, that I once knew
She’s all grown up with a big hairdo
Got the makeup on and designer styles
The girl I loved has been gone awhile
That barefoot girl, she used to make me smile

The barefoot girl that I once knew is covered up by fancy shoes
Track Name: I'm Self Destructive
I'M SELF DESTRUCTIVE
I play Russian Roulette and life is my bullet
Sometimes it’s a hand grenade
Even with all my amputations
I’m still digging my own grave
And I shovel fast, I'm in neck deep
'Bout 6 feet down is where I sleep

I’m self destructive, I’ve got a knack
I’ve got real talent, I ain’t no hack
I don’t need no help
I’m making my own bed
I’m self destructive
And I’ll be done, done when I’m dead

I'm easily seduced by darkness and doom
I took a vampire for my bride
It was love at first bite, but by our wedding night
I had a wild witch on the side
Now my goose is cooked, deep fried in hell
I have to duck and dive from fangs and spells

I’m self destructive, I’ve got a knack
I’ve got real talent, I ain’t no hack
I got my will all set
I’m making my own bed
I’m self destructive
And I’ll be done, done when I’m dead

I love dancing with lightning, electric and frightening
I chase tornadoes on my bicycle
I never stop to think twice
Speed right by the danger signs
I pick fights with guys two times my size

I’m self destructive, I’ve got a knack
I’ve got real talent, I ain’t no hack
It’s on my resume
I’m taking all the cred
I’m self destructive
And I’ll be done

I’m self destructive, I’ve got a knack
I’ve got real talent, I ain’t no hack
I’m very independent
I’m making my own bed
I’m self destructive
And I’ll be done, done when I’m dead

Done when I’m dead
Done when I’m dead
Done when I’m dead
Track Name: Fire My Heart
FIRE MY HEART
You’re hotter than our bonfire
I’m ready to be burned
Your kisses are my kerosene
You’re dousing me with flirt
I’m going berserk

Strike that match
Baby, light my spark
Come on, fan my flame
Yeah, fire my heart
Fire my heart, fire my heart

Your tan skin is combustible
I sizzle when you touch
You’re scorching me with body heat
You’ve got a red hot love
Baby steam me up

Strike that match
Baby, light my spark
Come on, fan my flame
Yeah, fire my heart
Fire my heart, fire my heart

You say you want fireworks on this Fourth of
July
You’re gonna need more than sparklers, I’ll be
your rocket to the sky

You got me on your launch pad
In my final countdown
My fuse is getting pretty short
Please get me off of the ground
Ignite me now

Strike that match
Baby, light my spark
Come on, fan my flame
Yeah, fire my heart
Fire my heart, fire my heart
