about

Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Currently based in Tacoma Washington, BBB has been making music together for over 7 years now.

In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania a small group of experienced musicians came together at open mic and began playing each other's music together. Playing music became writing music. Writing music became recording music, so they banded together and began to grow into Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo...and it was good.

Track Name: Breakup Song
Whoa oh oh, oh oh
Whoa oh whoa oh oh, oh oh
Whoa oh oh

We were so happy
So in love
So inseparable
It was incredible
But you changed your mind
Left me behind
Found another man
Who was better for you
For you

Whoa oh oh, oh oh
Whoa oh whoa oh oh, oh oh
Whoa oh oh

Now I hate every word
You ever said to me
Every broken promise
Every broken dream
And I hate your body
And I hate your smile
I'm still haunted by them
I'm still haunted by you
By you

Let's do it again
Whoa oh oh, oh oh
Whoa oh whoa oh oh, oh oh
Whoa oh oh

Get out of my head
I want to forget
But my memory
Show's no mercy
I, I gave you my heart
You, you tore it apart
I, I tore up my love songs
That I wrote for you
For you

One more time now!
Whoa oh oh, oh oh
Whoa oh whoa oh oh, oh oh
Whoa oh oh

When will I ever see
The light of day again
When will I be free
From this torture and pain
When will I ever feel
Nothing at all for you
As soon as I kill my heart
I will be free, I will be free
Track Name: Kids At School
You take your lessons wisely
Learn to play by all the rules
Follow trends and fashions blindly
Like all the kids at school
They never knew your name

Take your victories as you get them
Take your prize and run away
Hope they come with no surprises
With all the games they play
They still don't know your name

You forgive and you forget
What you give is what you'll get
It's all the same

You remember back to seventh grade
In a shack out by the pool
Fumbling blindly in the darkness
She told all the girls at school
You couldn't play the game

And all the boys they called you faggot
Stole your books and ran away
Spit on you and beat you senseless
But that's just a game they play
They won't remember your name

You forgive and they forget
What you give is what you'll get
It's all the same

She earned her reputation
In the backseat of a car
You heard from all the boys at school
You never got that far
She used to be so hungry
Always meant to be a star
But that little voice inside her head said
Stay right where you are

You rose above that situation
And went on to be a man
Left behind all those boys at school
Trying to do the best they can
They're doing just the same

She went on to be half empty
Serving cheap, domestic beer
To all the boys who called you faggot
Trying to relive better years
They don't remember her name

You forgave and they forgot
Oh you gave and you gave and you gave and you gave
But this is all you got
Track Name: Better High
Skeleton conversations repeat again and again
Never said I was better than other men
But your eyes paint a picture unfair
Shades of ghosts neither here nor there

Down in my cave I formulate a plan
Desperate conjurations to build a better man
Deceptions, perhaps, but they are my own
A hope, a prayer, a foolish seed to be sown

But oh, oh no no
This shit was weeks ago
Haven't we laid these demons to rest

Oh my my
I liked you better high
I just wanted that off of my chest

Oh my my my

Mental fistfights break out between us
I fear they'll be our end
But your face still makes my heart sing songs
Shades of ghosts of what once was

Up in my tower I can see
Houses, smokestacks and shopping malls
Consumer idolatry I am told
I could build a better home world

And oh, oh no no
That shit was months ago
Shouldn't we lay these demons to rest

Oh my my
I liked you better high
I just wanted that off of my chest

Oh my my my

All these obstacles you put before me
Are simple roadblocks that stand in my way
They shadow like ghosts that haunt my periphery
But we both said what we had to say

Down on the ground I blend into the masses
Seeking refuge from what I had
No longer content to let you possess me
I could build a better you

Oh, Oh no no
This shit was years ago
Can't we lay these demons to rest

Oh my my
I liked you better high
I just wanted that off of my chest

Oh my my my
Track Name: Socrates
There's a scared little girl in the mirror
She says Why are you looking at me?
You've become everything you said you wouldn't
I'm part of who you used to be
You stand on the shoulders of giants and claim to be tall
You were built with the wisdom of ages but still you claim you know nothing at all
The truth of it is you're so very small
The truth of it is your back's against the wall

Please don't be Socrates. This hemlock is not for you
This cup full of poison is all that they'll offer you
They'll take you away and strip you of your dignity
If not for yourself then for who you were meant to be

I'm not your savior. Please don't be my follower
They fed you their lies and naively you swallowed them
It's no surprise you've become just like all of them
No don't fade away

Don't drink their poison
Don't drink their poison
You'll never make it out alive
You'll never make it out alive

There's an angry young man in the mirror
He says. This is what you used to be
You'd add fuel to their flames with a caustic refrain of
Stand up for what you believe!

I saw you with blood on your hands
I saw you with fire in your eyes
I saw you reduced to a shell of a man
But still you wouldn't concede to their lies

I saw you with hope on your face
I saw you with stars in your eyes
You swore one day you'd get away from this place
Now you're stuck here and I can't say I'm surprised

Please don't be Socrates. This hemlock is not for you
This cup full of poison is all that they'll offer you
They'll take you away and strip you of your dignity
If not for yourself then for who you used to be

It goes on like a sad parade
Your hopes and your dreams reduced to charade
Was it worth it? The price that you paid
No don't fade away

Don't drink their poison
Don't drink their poison
You'll never make it out alive
You'll never make it out alive

There's a scared little boy in the mirror
He says. Why are you looking at me?
You've become everything you said you wouldn't
I'm part of who you used to be

You stand on the shoulders of giants and claim to be tall
You were built with the wisdom of ages but still you claim you know nothing at all
The truth of it is you're so very small
The truth of it is your back's against the wall

Please don't be Socrates. This hemlock is not for you
This cup full of poison is all that they'll offer you
They'll take you away and strip you of your dignity
If not for yourself then for who you were meant to be

It goes on like a sad parade
Your hopes and your dreams reduced to charade
Was it worth it? The price that you paid
No don't fade away

Don't drink their poison
Don't drink their poison
You'll never make it out alive
You'll never make it out alive

Don't drink their poison
Don't drink their poison
You'll never make it out alive
You'll never make it out alive
Track Name: Nostalgia
They say that death rides a pale horse
Forces gather to rain hell upon us
Has the world gone crazy? Is it just me
Sometimes it's just so hard to tell

If I let go will it all fall apart?
Should I really even care?
We fought so hard and what did it come to?
Now you say I've crossed the line

There is no past, sure ain't no future
It's really just a point of view, you see
As I am drawn to the abyss
Staring madness in the face

Memories broken and hard to sift through
For the ones I've left behind
Breathing in that same old scent
Nostalgia, you're on my mind

Lovers embrace through the chaos of it all
I can see it. I can see. I have heard my call

It isn't God and it isn't fate
We are the authors of it all, you see
And so to save you, I am the villain
A mercy you will never understand

And in the end nothing ever ends
As we wander this world blind
Breathing in that same old scent
Nostalgia, you're on my mind
You're on my mind

You're on my mind
