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: Pillars Of Heaven
Son of a bitch must pay!

Gotta find Miao Yin, just as fast as I can, can't let her get married to David Lo Pan.

(How do you think I feel Jack? I lost a whole girl!)

Gotta get my truck back, gotta track it down. Gonna take a trip to Little China Town

(I never drive faster than I can see, besides that it's all in the reflexes)

Gonna shake! X3 Gonna shake the pillars of Heaven, yeah!

Gotta find Egg Shen, gotta find him because we're gonna need that potion that'll give you good buzz

(If I'm not back before dawn, call the President)

Gonna fight the Storms, gonna beat them all. Now David Lo Pan, he's ten feet tall!

(Terrific, a six demon bag? Sensational...)
Track Name: Under Surveillance
They got me, yeah they got me, they got me under surveillance...

I don't know who, and I don't know why
But I look out my window and I see them outside
Pick up my phone, and I hear a weird hum,
Big Brother's got me under his thumb

I see those cameras in the street, and I hang my head in defeat
I see those cameras in the store, and I don't think I can take it no more
I know someone is reading my mail, I try and catch 'em, but I always fail
Who was that , did you just see? I swear that car is following me

There's a van parked down the street from my residence,
Reporting my daily routine to the President
We can't talk here, it isn't safe
Track Name: Telepathy
Every day I wish that I couldn't hear you
But it's ringing in my brain every time that I'm near you
I can read your thoughts & I can read your mind
Feels like it's happening all of the time
You're broadcasting signals can't you change the frequency?
I use telepathy...

I don't think I belong in this place
What's in your head isn't showing on your face
I hear you wonder why I look so strange
Your private thoughts are plain to see inside my brain
I wish you could lock me out but I've got the key
I use telepathy...

It's got a catch, it's got a catch,
It's a curse, it's not a gift...

Tapped into the collective unconscious
There doesn't seem to be a way for me to ignore this
It just isn't fair, it just isn't right
Waking me up when I'm asleep at night
Too much on my mind, there's no vacancy
I use telepathy...
