The Camera Loves You Your friends can’t reach you they see your troubled eyes but now you’re smiling it’s the perfect lie the camera loves you makes you feel good the camera loves you I want to love you, too guys can’t touch you you’re such a luxury the color of money and envy is green the camera loves you it can see through the camera loves you into the deep blue the camera loves you I want to love you, too Your parents didn’t want you so far away But you convinced them Everything’s OK You found someone Who can change the light And paint a picture Of a perfect life the camera loves you makes you feel good the camera loves you I want to love you, too the camera loves you

Every day it's hard to wake up Every day before that first cup Every day you want to see her Maybe you should leave her? Every day she’s such a temptress Every day now you have a mistress Every day you just deny it Every day, have you got a light, man? Every day Every day Every day you're twisting that cork Every day when you get off from work Every day you waste some money Every day you have to wonder Every day is that your sickness Every day gotta get your fix now Every day think you don't need it Every day that's just the cost of living In a world - so unforgiving You have to pay to play But when you’re paying every day I'm just saying that's not playing It’s every day

I’m in your living room I should be leaving soon Soon as I pick up all of my change Been sleeping on your couch I should be going now Soon as you give up on all my dreams I live in the here and now I don’t know why or how dream to forget dream to forget dream to forget Dreams are just forgotten Days to be erased Dreams are just forgotten memories A stand up comedian Laugh in the face of doom I’m killing itl you are killing me I should be going now Before you throw me out Soon as I give up on all my dreams I live in the here and now I don’t know why or how dream to forget Dreams are just forgotten Days to be erased Dreams are just forgotten

Working part time on a short term contract When I get off, I just like to kick back Don't work much, but I feel productive if I do some reading or go running In this line of work, there's not much money Still my forecast is partly sunny Looking for a job with benefits ‘cause I’m not getting paid; I’m not getting rich Hit the ceiling, now I’m on the floor I’m got my reasons – I’m underemployed Not my decision to work and be bored It’s my position - I’m under employed I need nothing more I need nothing more in my down time I am always thinking what's the next move? and what's the end game ? I can do the work, but please explain What do I do with the rest of my brain Hit the ceiling, now I’m on the floor I’m got my reasons – I’m underemployed I need nothing more I need nothing more I need nothing more I need nothing more underemployed, underemployed I need nothing more

We’re waiting for the sound The sound that sets us free Free from what we want And everyone we need We’re waiting for the sound The sound that brings us close We’ll dance with everyone All in good… Time will not go faster It won’t go back It won’t slow down Feels like forever Right now We’re waiting for the sound The sound that let’s us go To places we can’t see And people I don’t know Become a part of me Just waiting for the sound The sound that gives us hope That maybe things have changed Forever Time will not go faster It won’t go back It won’t slow down It feels like forever Right now We’re waiting for the sound Time will not go faster feels like forever Right now We’re waiting for the sound

enough fuel to go there not enough to come home there's no turning back we're going, going, gone we will search for chemicals that’s the mission plan I’ll look inside of you and find out who I am We’re on a rocket ship half way to the stars leaving on a one way trip a one way trip to Mars When I look inside your eyes I see empty space Leaving never to return We finally have escaped We will drive the rover down through the dust and sand Where I lost sight of you and forgot who I am We’re on a rocket ship half way to the stars leaving on a one way trip a one way trip to Mars When see the stars In your eyes I can feel your heart Come to life On Mars

about

Dust on the Radio's music is influenced by post-punk, new wave and power pop, but energized with blasts of synth harmony, soaring guitar and driving bass lines, creating an anthemic, danceable modern rock sound.

The music draws it's power from diverse influences, but distills it into updated form of rock that seems familiar, but freshly charged. A song about underemployment percolates with a stark rhythm and a mournful guitar. We wait for a sonic communion, disaffection comes with success, a spectacular escape clouded by doubt and disconnection - dark lyrics are resolved by sheer rock ecstasy. We're alone in this together. The music of Dust on the Radio takes you deep into that beautiful place and sets you free.

about

Dust on the Radio Los Angeles, California

Dust on the Radio is a five-piece alternative rock band based in Los Angeles. The music draws its power from post-punk and new wave, which is transformed into raucous anthemic barroom rock. Dark lyrics are resolved by cathartic live energy. This summer they hit the road on their first Midwest tour seeking the finest beer and fried cheese curds in all the land. ... more
