about

The Anxieties Portland

The Anxieties are a four-piece punk rock band formed in Eugene, but now based in Portland, Oregon. Dusted Magazine called us "garage rockin' punk, mad scientist-core for the paranoid and suspicious" and that sounds about right to me.

Track Name: Blank Stares
Blank stares, are all I've got for you...
Blank stares, are all you'll get from me...
Blank stares, are all I've got for you...
Blank stares, are all you'll get from me...
Blank stares!

Blank stares, got nothing to say to you...
Blank stares, every time you talk to me...
Blank stares, got nothing to say to you...
Blank stares, every time you talk to me...
Blank stares!
Track Name: Hypnotized
I'm hypnotised, hypnotised, you got me hypnotised
Locked in a trance & mesmerized
I'm hypnotised, hypnotised, you got me hypnotised
Under the control of your cool green eyes

You got me doing stuff against my will yeah
Just say the word & I'll probably even kill yeah
Only thought once but I should've thought twice
Well I should've known & I should've realized

Just say the word & I activate yeah
Just like the Manchurian Candidate yeah
My loyalty was never in question
Under the spell of your suggestion
Track Name: Nowhere Zone
I'm living in the nowhere zone, got no car & I got no phone
I'm living in the nowhere zone oh no, oh no, oh no!
I'm living in the nowhere zone, I can feel the chill in my bones
I'm living in the nowhere zone oh no, oh no, oh no!

Well the street is always dark & street is always cold
My neighbors are all weird & my neighbors are all old
Well there ain't no fun to be found because there ain't no one around
The days are all so wrong & the nights are all so long

The light of the snow on the TV is my only illumination
Sitting my room it's all boredom & alienation
Well I don't have no money, & I don't have no time
All I've got is these words but I'm afraid that they won't rhyme
Track Name: The Obsolete Man
This earth has got no place for me, and there's nothing else that I can be, each day it brings me to my knees. Disconnected from this world I just don't understand, I am...the obsolete man.

Can't belong but I can't be free, no future that I can foresee, discarded cultural debris, I try to find a purpose but I don't think that I can, I am...the obsolete man.
Track Name: If I Was A Creep
If I was a creep, If I was a creep, If I was a creep...
If was a creep then you'd be the first to know

You don't have to lock your doors
You don't have to close your blinds
I'm not outside, no oh
I'm not outside
Track Name: Lab Rats
Gotta go to work and run through the maze cause we're lab rats.
Racing each other for the cheese every day, cause we're lab rats.
Seems like I spend all my time running on this wheel, electrodes on my head are there to tell you how I feel.
Stick us with a needle and listen to us squeal cause we're lab rats.

Don't stuff us in too close to one another cause we're lab rats.
If it gets overcrowded we'll eat each other cause we're lab rats.
Cosmetics on our skin, and drugs are in our food, chemicals in the water there to help control our mood.
Don't pull on my tail cause I think it's pretty rude cause we're lab rats.

The men observe us in their long white coats cause we're lab rats. They watch what we do and they take down notes cause we're lab rats.
They never tell us why, but only that we must. Don't know what they're up to or what they want from us.
I think we should view them with a healthy distrust cause we're lab rats.
Track Name: Panic Room
In the panic room...in the panic room...

Locked inside this room is where I'll stay
These walls will keep the outside world at bay
My haven has all I could ever need
Isolation that I'll never leave

Barricaded here inside my home
Solitary world to call my own
Screens show me the world as it goes by
I can't relate so I won't even try
Track Name: Sideshow Freak
You look like at me like a sideshow freak, yeah
And you treat me like a circus geek, yeah
Go ahead & point and laugh now
Someday you're gonna face my wrath now

You look at me like I'm a pinhead
And you treat me just like you want me dead
You look at me like I'm insane
Well, I look at you & I fell the same

Like a sideshow, like a sideshow freak

You look at me like a bearded lady
Do it all the time & it drives me crazy
Think you got the answers like a fortune teller
Want to keep me locked in the cellar

You think I'm a fake like the Fiji Mermaid
Try & tear me down like it's some kinda crusade
Think you run the show like the ringmaster
This is gonna end up in disaster
