about

On April 14, 2016, Fail Mary played a set at the Wharton County Junior College "Live Music Showcase."

This is a recording of that set.

--

“Fail Mary Live! – The Official Bootleg” was recorded at WCJC’s Live Music Showcase earlier this year through a portable digital recorder suspended from the ceiling of the venue. Could you dream of better quality?! Probably, yes (hence the “Bootleg” portion of the title). Nonetheless, it was a great show!

Track Name: Summer Lies (Live)
Baby, I can’t describe
Just how I feel tonight.

We can talk about what it means to be alive.
Then we can make each other feel so alive.
We can take a chance on a summer lie.
We can take a chance now. Take a chance, come on.

Tell me why I’ve become such a sentimental fool.
And tell me why I’ve become so much less than what I was.

We can talk about what it means to be alive.
Then we can make each other feel so alive.
We can take a chance on a summer lie.
We can take a chance now. Take a chance, come on.
On a summer lie.

So lie to me.

We can talk about what it means to be alive.
Then we can make each other feel so alive.
We can take a chance on a summer lie.
We can take a chance now. Take a chance, come on.
On a summer lie.
Track Name: I Think I'm Allergic to Something in the Water (Live)
Well, now, how are you?
I’ve been fine except for I’m a bit overdue
For a letdown--for a letdown. Oh, I love the sound
Of a letdown--of another letdown. You know I love the sound.

Does this make me wrong? Does this make me bad--
Wanting more than I’ve ever had?
Does this make me sick? Does this make me strange--
Wanting more than just that?

Well, now, how are you?
I’ve been fine except for I’m a bit overdue
For a letdown--for a letdown. Oh, I love the sound
Of a letdown--of another letdown. You know I love the sound.

Does this make me wrong? Does this make me bad--
Wanting more than I’ve ever had?
Does this make me sick? Does this make me strange--
Wanting more than just that?

Does this make me wrong? Does this make me sad--
Wanting more of what I never had?
Does this make me sick? Does this make me strange--
Wanting more than just that?

Oh, it’s just that

I think I’m allergic to something in the water.

There’s nothing I could ever change about you,
Even if I ever wanted to.
There’s nothing I could ever say about you
That could change the way that everyone perceives you.

There’s nothing I could ever change about you,
And God only knows I really wanted to.
There’s nothing I could ever change about you.
Unfortunately, I will have to make do.

Does this make me wrong? Does this make me bad--
Wanting more than I’ve ever had?
Does this make me sick? Does this make me strange--
Wanting more than just that?

Does this make me wrong? Does this make me sad--
Using a bit more sarcasm
Than I meant to? Is it so sad?

Oh, it’s so sad.

As the unbearable cold claws at my skin,
Why will no one will let me in?

Oh, is it so sad?
Oh, does this make me bad?
Track Name: Iodine (Live)
Taking your beating heart for granted,
Someday you’re gonna regret this.
Taking your beating heart for granted,
I tell you someday you’re gonna regret this.

Taking your beating heart for granted,
Someday you’re gonna regret this.
I’ve taken your beating heart for granted,
I know that someday I’m gonna regret this.

I’ve been proven wrong time and time again
But I still have faith that people can change.
I felt the opposite of love, and it isn’t hate,
But indifference. Indifference, hey

I’ll tell you something--you’ll never believe this:
The universe is cold, uncaring, and capricious.
I’ll tell you something--you’ll never believe this:
The world has no obligation to grant your wishes.

I’ve got a bottle of iodine, it’ll make it alright.
Track Name: Since You Left (Live)
Since you left, I found my way.
I didn't need you anyway.
I found someone I really like.
Don't give me that look, don't give me that fake smile.

I'm such a liar...

Since you left, I found my way.
I didn't need you anyway.
These drugs don't work, but neither do I.
Don't give me that look, don't give me that fake smile.

I'm such a liar...

In the lamp-lit room, I sit alone.
It's all yours now. My whole world bows.

I'm such a liar...

Since you left...
Track Name: I Would Never (Live)
I would never wish death upon anyone,
But this time you have forced me to make an exception.

An exception.

And I would never wish death upon anyone,
But this time you have forced me to make an exception.
The lies you spread about my best friend are coming back to you.
And if I were you, I'd prepare myself for what I'm gonna do to you.

Well, when I saw your face, I flinched in pain.
I flinched in physical pain.
When I saw your face, I flinched in pain.
I flinched in actual, physical pain.

Cause, baby, it's a small town.
I know I'll see you around.

I'm making an exception for you.
Track Name: Old Friends (Live)
What have I become?
Been here far too long.
This is where I spent the sixth
Longest afternoon of my life.

Will I still be here
This time next year?
I don't wanna be that guy
And I don't wanna live a lie.
It was my last chance for a good life.

My old friends would never approve of this.
I guess that's why they're my old friends.

I can say what I want, when I want, where I want.
And I can do what I want, when I want, where I want.

I went down to the river
And I met a pretty girl
But she wasn't you.
I'm just gonna fail you, I know.

My old friends would never approve of this.
I should go back home.

It was my last chance for a good life,
But I don't want to live a lie.
The speedometer says 99,
But it feels like 25.

I should go back home.
Track Name: The Rain (Live)
This is unprecedented.
I can only wonder how I managed it.
You and I used to be so kind.
I can't explain why. I can't explain this time.

The rain keeps coming
Again and again and again and again.
And the shame - I'm always running
Again and again and again and again.

This life can't be left behind.
Not this time, no. Not this time.
It's so strange how I'm so strange.
It's been years now - Something's bound to change.
And these lights - As they pass us by -
Are so mesmerizing. So mesmerizing.
And this mask - Always smiling -
It's the perfect disguise. The perfect disguise

When the rain keeps coming
Again and again and again and again.
And the shame - I'm always running
Again and again and again and again

And again...

Though I have no direction, I'll show no fear.

Will the rain keep coming
Again and again and again and again?
And the shame - Is it always running
Again and again and again and again?
But your name - So important to me.
Your name. Your name. Just the sound of your name.
But I forgot: I'm not important to you
Again. Again. Again.
Track Name: Criminal (Live)
The love has been squeezed from your heart.
She tells me "It's a beautiful art."
Oh,
She brags "It's a beautiful art."

But she's nothing but a fucking vandal to me -
Writing on the walls of the innocent and the free.
Nothing but a common criminal, you see -
Playing with the minds and emotions of the free.

The love has been squeezed from your heart.
She tells me "It's a beautiful art."
You showcase your sorrow, though she'll be gone by tomorrow.
She brags "It's a beautiful art."

But she's nothing but a fucking vandal to me -
Writing on the walls of the innocent and the free.
Nothing but a common criminal, you see -
Playing with the minds and emotions of the free.

She wanders around in fields.

Nothing but a fucking vandal to me -
Writing on the walls of the innocent and the free.
Nothing but a common criminal, you see -
Playing with the minds and emotions of the free.
