about

Abbot Kinney San Francisco, California

Abbot Kinney is a rock band that thrives on big melodic vocal hooks, a heavy, intricate rhythm section and an ambitiously grand scope, and while lead singer-songwriter Jared Swanson was certainly influenced by the “alternative” label of yesterday, his music wholly belongs to the 21st century. ... more

Track Name: Lonesome Dove
Into the sun on the barrel of a smoking gun.
I know that everyone is counting on you.
Last hand then I'm gone. The piano is playing a song.
A whore to heal the wounds? Common I'll rescue you.

You don't understand, I'm not the kind of man
To hold you by the hand but I'm doing the best I can.

Ooh in the masquerade we'd outgun, we'd outgun whatever came in our way.
Ooh on our last hurray we'll all run, we'll all run until we all get paid our wage.

Vanity and pride, without I can't abide.
Behind my eyes the view is a dark and misty hue.

Ooh in the masquerade we'd outgun, we'd outgun whatever came in our way.
Ooh on our last hurray we'll all run, we'll all run until we all get paid our wage.

Stick a sign on my grave that says my name and the Hat Creek Cattle Company.

Ooh in the masquerade we'd outgun, we'd outgun whatever came in our way.
Ooh on our last hurray we'll all run, we'll all run until we all get paid our wage.
Track Name: Soon
Perfect day to hide away and never be found, go underground, this big town.
Why don't you find a room where we can do what we do the whole night through.

Soon… Either way.
Soon… Find a place.

I know what you are going through. You can't seem to choose the self-abuse or to shake it loose.
We need a break; a fresh landscape. No wrong way to go with a spin of the globe let's hit the road.

Soon… Either way.
Soon… Find a place.

Where we are enough, we can be anything we want,
And our love is opening up. OoOOhh
We can be any, we could be anything you want.

And no more running around.

Soon… Either way.
Soon… Find a place.
Track Name: Help Me
Oh my sweet God, I've been hurt
By my own flesh, by my own blood.

I have no love left. You drink it and then you spit. You spit.

Ahhh… Don't you wanna help me? Help me.

What can we do to make you happy?
Buy me a gun if you want to make me happy.

I have no love left. You drink it and then you spit. You spit.

Ahhh… Don't you wanna help me? Help me.
Ahhh… Don't you wanna help me? Help me.
Track Name: Hope
Has it come to this? There's nothing left to believe in.
Did we forget our hopes, our hopes when we found out there is no God?
Everyone from coast to coast was so easily bought.

Close your eyes and it's crystal clear.
Fall… Fall… Fall in line.

There is no constitution, no. And your theories won't help you now.
Let me now propose a toast to the changing of the guard.
What you think is close, it's close is never quite what you thought.

Close your eyes and it's crystal clear.
Fall… Fall… Fall in line.
Just close your eyes and it's crystal clear.
Fall… Fall… Fall in line.

Hey, always lying. Should have known. Hey, always dying. Should have known.

Crystal clear. Crystal clear.
Track Name: One Is All You Need
One is all you ever had. One is all you ever needed.
I was the one who attacked. You were the one who conceded.

Ooh nobody does it quite like, darlin'.
Ooh nobody does it quite like you, like you, like you.

Before I could talk I was no one's son. Before I could walk I swore off my tears.
I never thought you'd be the one to bring back all my fears.

Ooh nobody does it quite like you, darlin'.
Ooh nobody does it quite like you, like you, like you.

I can't believe it. No one is helping, my love.
No sirens are screamin'. No one can stop me, how come?

One in the head. Two in the back. Shoot till she's dead. The room goes black.
Sitting on the bed where she sat, I made her beg in my lap.

Ooh nobody does it quite like you, darlin'.
Ooh nobody does it quite like you, like you, like you.

I can't believe it. No one is helping my love.
No sirens are screamin'. No one can stop me, how come?
Track Name: Move Slow
I've got nothing to do, nothing to say.
If it's okay with you I think we should stay
in bed all day, in bed all day.

Ow, move slow. Move slow. There you go.
Ow, move slow. Move slow.

I still feel the pain but I know that you
Won't look away and cut right through
Right to the vein, right to the vein.

Ow, move slow. Move slow. There you go.
Ow, move slow. Move slow.
Track Name: RUin
I don't want to be a part of your idiosyncrasies.
I don't want to help you out with your dark hypotheses.
If you don't want to you don't have to be a big old tease
But you're cold hearted, the warmth departed, left us with this disease..

Okay… alright… take it easy. We can do it if we try.

Are you in or are you out?
You washed me down the water spout.
You came up during a drought.
Are you in or are you out?

When we started you were hot and oh so quick to please.
I haven't forgotten you are rotten; I haven't slept in weeks.
You're cold hearted, the warmth departed, left us with this disease.
Well I don't want to have to control you cause I will hurt you if I have to.

Okay… well alright… you think you need me. You say that every time.

Are you in or are you out?
You washed me down the water spout.
You came up during a drought.
Are you in or are you out?

Track Name: Heaven And Hell
On top of icy mountains I see your face again, again, again.
In light of these new forecasts I want you again, and again, again, again.

Heaven and Hell can't find me tonight.
Cause I'll be by your side.
Heaven and Hell can't find me tonight.
Cause I'll be by your side.

In dark and crooked forests I'll find a way for a great, a great escape.
Hold you in my arms. Are you cold?

Heaven and Hell can't find me tonight.
Cause I'll be by your side.
Heaven and Hell can't find me tonight.
Cause I'll be by your side.
Heaven and Hell can't find you tonight.
Cause I'll be by your side.
Heaven and Hell can't find you tonight.
Cause I'll be by your side.
Track Name: Probably Never Know
I can't stop dreaming of you. Yeah what's new?
My mind says time to move on, "You should". I would if I could.

But I've been waiting for lies.
Joking about old good times.
I don't wanna change.

Well you'll Probably Never Know
How hard I try to make you smile.
And you'll Probably Never Know
That these songs I write are my kiss goodnight.

I'll make this easy and hide my real love inside.
Hold your hand now like a friend but I will pretend

You've been waiting for me.
Hoping someday you might see
How much I've grown

But you'll Probably Never Know
How hard I try to make you smile.
And you'll Probably Never Know
That these songs I write are my kiss goodnight.
