about

Villainy of Thieves Madison, Wisconsin

Noah and Dan were playing Choking Victim songs in Noah's living room, when Ross, walks downstairs and says: "We should play some Choking Victim." A few days later, Dan brings over his bass, and the three begin to cover Choking Victim songs. Eventually, Noah brings original songs to practice and a new band was formed, which was called Villainy of Thieves. ... more

Track Name: Sleep (Never Comes Soon)
If I go to jail tomorrow
then tonight I'll play guitar
cuz that's the only thing that matters anymore.
When everything went to shit
I didn't admit I was wrong
I gotta be stubborn when I wanna write a song.

Cuz often it doesn't happen or come out right
then I'll just give up and stare out the night
what's new on my wall? what's going on outside my room?
Wondering why sleep never comes soon.

Then when it does it hits like a ton of bricks
waking up at two isn't hard when you pass out at six
I don't have the trappings of motivation
and even if I did, I'd never use them

So when it doesn't happen or come out right
I'll just give up and stare out the night
What's new on my wall? What's going on outside my room
Wondering why sleep never comes soon.

Working by clock you know it gets so fucking boring
so I ditched my job when all that rush was pointless.
Cuz I work and work and work and work
and work my life away,
another hour passed another dollar made.
Living by the laws you know they got so fucking boring
So I dealt 448 grams but all those crimes were pointless
cuz now I slave and slave and slave
and slave the day away,
another hour passed another penance paid.

So when it doesn't happen or come out right
don't you give up and stare out the night
Take a deep breath and get back to work,
the hardest things I do bring the greatest reward. Go!
Track Name: This One's Four
This one's for the days when I didn't do anything at all
I just sat on my front porch and drank cheap alochol
This one's for those days when I didn't wanna shower
cuz the filth and the smell just returned in an hour.
This one's for the days when I can't get outta bed
cuz the hangover hits me like a hammer in the head.
This one's for those nights when I can't fall asleep
and I gave up along time ago on trying to count sheep.

So I'll stay awake until the early day
When the feeling of disgust just doesn't go away
I won't live my life regretting shit I've done
So I'll get the fuck outta here right now.

This one's for all those that are feeling left behind
When they're running outta shadows in which they might hide.
This one's for all those that circumvent the law
cuz rules are meant to be broken and the idols they will fall
This one's for all those at the end of their ropes
when they're cascading down the sides of their slippery slope
Yeah the one's in the back that are clinging to ghosts
and those in the front who dance to forget

So they stay awake until the early day
when the feeling of disgust just doesn't go away
They don't live their lives regretting shit they've done
so they'll get the fuck outta here right now.
Track Name: Dying Song
We won't last until dawn break
and coming here is my last mistake
When I start to think you're on the take
this has reached it's final date
I still can't find a reason why
why it's ever worth a try
some times I think it'd be easier if I just died.
And then this thought it brings me back
I start to think it's not so bad
And foul moods might happen every now and then
it's always nice to have close friends
But people go through their ups and downs
and the same folks might not come around
but we'll see each other at a later date
we'll get together and we'll play

The same chord progressions we've played 1000 times
theres no "A" for efforts and theres no second tries
I've heard once or twice let them sleeping dogs lie
but I'll play it one more time

Then the sunlight hits again
I'll reattach my pounding head
Forget every word you've ever said and go back home
and lie in bed
The warmth of the bed will comfort me
and when I wake I'll be free
Lose all my possessions can't you see
they never mattered much to me
I'll rush towards despondency
self destruction, askew autonomy
I go towards that light willingly
but do I advance or do I flee?
or rather just get caught in ruts
when these works of art they're never done
they're just abandoned them I'm stuck playing

The same chord progressions I've played 1000 times
theres no "A" for efforts when theres no 2nd tries.
I've heard once or twice let them sleeping dogs lie
But I'll play it one more time

We won't last until the morn
and this will be my dying song
I woke up one day and was like,
shit I just turned 24
I was like, what have I done?
Where did all those years run?
Was I faking it? or having fun playing

The same chord progressions
I've played 1000 times
Theres no "A" for efforts when theres no 2nd tries
But I'll play it one more time.
Track Name: Out of the Church!
I'm running all the time
I can't afford to be late
I'm running round in circle and
I'm wearing out legs
I've been alotta places I ain't seen nothing good
That's why I'll just stay here in my little neighborhood

So when I run outta the church and into the Manor
I might cut out all that drinking
but I'm not thinking any clearer
I'm still running outta places to stay
I'm still running outta places to stay
I won't come round here anymore
was that rock bottom or was it the floor
I'm running out of places to stay

I'm running all the time
but never getting anywhere
I ran outta reasons long ago
to even fucking care
I've been alotta places I ain't seen nothing great
that's why for another year in Madison I'll stay

Chorus x2
Track Name: About to Crack
About to Crack
No going back
The same shit you've heard before
We've been spewing the same rhetoric since 1984

Clinging to wrong questions
while searching for the answers
This disease spreads
like a fucking social cancer.

The worst been done
Hah! it's just begun
I'll lie prone on the floor
Standing on the prow
of a ship sinking fast
This might be behind us
but it's not in the past.

Clinging to wrong questions
while searching for the answers
this disease spreads
like a fucking social cancer.
Clinging to responses
that were made of no substance
Was this an educated guess
or just a dismissive gesture?
Track Name: Untitled
I'm a food pantry chef and a complete drunken mess
I can tell that you want me by the hemming of your dress.
I haven't got alotta time, patience or cash
And I'm feeling a little drunk
which never lasts

I'm gonna be the one to get the last laugh
It'll explode from my head and echo like a thunder clap
When you hear that sound you know there's no going back
cuz my moment has come and your era has passed.

I'm a first rate fuck up and a hazardous house guest
The status of my hygiene is usually suspect
I'm a rude motherfucker especially when I'm drunk
and not the kind of person that you ought to trust

Chorus x2
Track Name: Improvised Dub
None
Track Name: Tune By Ear
When I tune by ear its always sharp
I'm still seeing shadows in the dark
Raise your hands when there's no will to fight
I started the car but stayed in park
with that attitude I don't get far
Failure resounds louder than victory

Retreat ain't defeat it's just getting damn close
I'm slipping off the edge once again.

I took a taste but it came back up
I guess it was something I didn't want
My stomach doesn't trust my mouth anymore
Go out tonight or stay inside?
It's always easier to run and hide
Enjoying the comforts of home

Retreat aint defeat it's just getting damn close
I'm slipping off the edge once again

I've had enough not taking anymore
where's my stuff and where's the door
I'll let you get the last word
I haven't got the fucking time to listen
to you bitch and whine
I'm washing the taste outta my mouth right now.

Retreat aint defeat it's just getting damn close
I'm slipping off the edge once again
Rejection and deception it
just amounts to depression
Tonights gonna be the last time

When I tune by ear it's always flat
I smoked that shit there's no going back
Everything seems slightly better when I'm stoned.
When I leave there's no return
my voice is steady my tone is stern
I'm never returning home

Retreat aint defeat it's just getting damn close
I'm slipping off the edge once again
Rejection and deception it
just amounts to depression
Tonight's gonna be the last time
