about

Black Dog Prowl Washington

Black Dog Prowl is considered one of Washington, D.C.'s hardest hitting rock bands. The four-piece showcases original material ranging from the slow, down-tuned to a fast-paced kick in the teeth. If one insists on drawing a line to the familiar, BDP has drawn sonic comparisons to the likes of Soundgarden, Torche, and Nirvana. ... more

Track Name: Tongue-In-Cheek
Tongue-In-Cheek

Lift you up to let you down, now you can get out
We’ll put the blame on you
Can’t you see it’s all about me and I’ve got nothing to prove
Now you’ve gone and spoiled it all by knowing right from wrong
You’re as free to leave as I am naive and you just don’t belong

Make the rules up as I go, I’m sure no one will ever know
The lies come so easily, what do I need with honesty?
I only want your loyalty, don’t tell me what you think of me

No, no, no, no our time is not up, in fact it’s only begun
Couldn’t care less, it’s all such a mess
‘cause you know we’re having fun
No need to explain, I know you’re all in pain,
But you’ve been through this before
Too old to change, maybe a little deranged, life is such a bore

Make the rules up as I go, I’m sure no one will ever know
The lies come so easily, what do I need with honesty?
I only want your loyalty, don’t tell me what you think of me

Think big, act small to build myself up
Don’t even need to an excuse
Tell me what’s in a name aside from fortune and fame
A brand and a noose
Now I run the game and rigged it nearly the same
Using a color code
Marginalize the mean, redefine the obscene
And live above the fold

Make the rules up as I go, I’m sure no one will ever know
The lies come so easily, what do I need with honesty?
I only want your loyalty, don’t tell me what you think of me
What I say is how it goes and you will not be left alone

Cigarette Butts

I think we’ve got a problem.
While you seem to think everything’s gonna be just fine.
A standing reminder we’re all in this together.
Not just when you need me to tow the line.

And this goes on and on and on.
Where it stops, nobody knows.
This can’t go on and on and on.
We’ve got everything to lose.

With all the wealth rising to the top, now
Get a good look as the blood trickles down.
One by one, the pillars are gonna drop, while
All the liars and thieves protect their own.

And this goes on and on and on.
Where it stops, nobody knows.
This can’t go on and on and on.
We’ve got everything to lose.
Track Name: Reach Out
Reach Out

Time is up and we’ve had enough.
You’re all alone until you self destruct.
You know - you gotta talk about it.
All the rules only have only tied you up.
There’s nothing free that you’ve ever loved.
We know - you’re in deep without a beat on where the problem started

Reach out and help.
Reach out.

Can’t fall in love with everyone, but
You came apart when you’re left alone.
I know - you claim you’re working on it.
It’s okay to look, but you always touch.
Like to drink, but you don’t think too much.
You know - you slurring speech does not excuse the world that you’re a part of

Reach out and help me.
Reach out.
Track Name: Lousy Lying Liar
Lousy Lying Liar

Small town crazy, can you save me?
Share with me your truth.
They call me lazy and I just may be,
But, I know what drives you.

I think I might be insane.
But what would that make you?

Big league baby, try to blame me,
But, know I’m onto you.
Lies grow bigger and make me sicker.
It kills you to know the truth.

I think I might be insane.
But what would that make you?
There’s got to be a better way.
There’s got to be more to you.
