about

"From past influences such as traditional folk, the Byrds, The Beatles, and the The Velvet Underground, to The Stooges, Crazy Horse, and even to noise bands such as High Rise and Les Rallizes Denudes, Divisionists' motto, "We Play Rock Music" encompasses them all.

Divisionists' sound is an all-inclusive one, serving up a smorgasbord of goodies, ranging from sunshine pop, to droney, Neil Young-ish dirges, with a side order of giant guitars along the way. New twists on centuries-old songs are the cherry on top of this dynamic rock band's offerings."

Track Name: Success
I stand on the platform
The 9:21 is showing due
At 9:29
Hypodermic
Railway sleepers tell the time

I move through the city
In tubes of white
And crimson blue
(how 'bout you?)
And left of the staircase
A video's playing a dream at you

Don't get me wrong
I'm not complaining
But still
You know...
It's not what I thought
That success would look like

I open a doorway
And step into
A marble hall
(don't we all?)
And follow the pathways
Where cubicle melody does fall

Don't get me wrong
I'm not complaining
But still
You know...
It's not what I thought
That success would look like
Not what I thought
That it all would be like

We stand in a barroom
Pints of lager in our hands
And soon on the platform
We'll be playing a one night stand

Don't get me wrong
I'm not complaining
But still
You know...
It's not what I thought
That success would look like
Not what what I thought
That success would look like
Track Name: Tyburn Tree
I'm at a cafe on the Edgeware Road
A cup of tea and a packet of smokes
A notebook filled with bad poetry
Mostly saying, "would you look at me"
And you can take it from me
It ain't easy

Still at that cafe with that cup of tea
I'd have another but it isn't free
I light a tab and take in a drag
My mind as empty as a tabloid rag
And you can take it from me
It ain't easy, brother

Well I still remember
The look in your eyes
I had it coming
This I don't deny
Now I'm here
To hang from the Tyburn Tree
Right here
To hang from the Tyburn Tree

I don't expect that
You would take my side
It doesn't matter
Guess I'm satisfied
To be here
And hang from the Tyburn Tree
Right here
To hang from the Tyburn Tree

Walk to the station down the Edgeware Road
The rain is starting and my bones feel old
Picture a waitress pouring rivers of tea
For punters always taking liberties
And you can take it from me
Track Name: Both Sides of the Question
Down the pub every Friday night
Sue's a little nervous
A little uptight
She lost her money back in the crash
Now she's getting by
She's holding fast

She couldn't tell you what she needs
She can't see both sides of the question
Doesn't know what she's after
She can't see both sides, both sides

Henry wears his yellow vest
To remind him of a day
When he felt his best
He lost his lover, dead in the wars
Now he's holding on
Doesn't know what for

He couldn't tell you what he needs
He can't see both sides of the question
Doesn't know what he's after
He can't see both sides, both sides

And her friends don't notice her edginess
They're too wrapped up in their own lives
And his colleagues think that he looks quite smart
Can't see the pain in his eyes

But when the band strikes up a tune, well
A different feeling
Moves over the room
It seemed to me that for a little while
They forgot themselves
And nearly broke a smile

He couldn't tell you what he needs
They can't see both sides of the question
She doesn't know what she's after
They can't see both sides, both sides
Track Name: Far From Home
Today
I saw you
Today
I saw you
But you
Weren't there

Yesterday
You cried
Yesterday
You cried
And I
Wasn't there

Photographs
And letters
Photographs
And letters
They
Can't bring me home
