about

Action Camp Pittsburgh

We're from Pittsburgh. We like Doom, Surf, and Electro - so that's kind of our thing. Maura sings and plays bass, Bengt sings and plays baritone guitar, and Joe plays drums. We also use lots of samplers, synths, and drum machines.

Track Name: Seven Days
i wish i could make my mind go slow
find the piece that would make us whole
i feel it as it folds
the future doesn’t hold
to put aside what we both know
won’t heal the past
maybe my choice is better made fast

(better off without)
i hear my conscious tell me know
i see no other way to go
matches lit down to the nail
line my cards up all to fail

push me, rip me, reveal to me
no pain just blame, the truth i need
a promise, a barter, what’s the use
how we’ve been reduced
light it up, make it fast
maybe what i touch ain’t meant to last

you look to me for an excuse
but i have zero to produce
matches lit down to the nail
line my cards up all to fail

words trip as they slip through my lips
these lies i must shed as clothes before bed
i wake and can’t shake my mistakes
these lies i must shed as clothes before bed
seven long days dear i waited frustrated
each action debated plain stated you’re guiltless
can’t redress or repress what we must admit

i play this game without deceit
and in the end who did i cheat?
matches lit down to the nail
line my cards uip all to fail
Track Name: Desert Dogs
please trust me to make my decisions
leave them all to beg for less
slow talk and superstition
the night nests down low as can be
the stars crowd round just to see that

when you dream, you dream alone
if you dream, you dream alone as you say
(sleep steals away) to drink the cup
you give of yourself
(so blessed to) it stains your lips
the thirst never leaves you
it burns as a fever

fingers draw lines in red clay
track oil-filled steps for prey
black dogs do come runnin’
depart, lost to what you seek
the heart grasps at how to speak
this place was left to nature
to god you’re nothing but a stranger

travel won’t slow the hunt
the hands of time give no shelter
only ghosts, they come to meet you

when you dream, you dream alone
if you dream, you dream alone as you say
sleep steals away, so blessed to
(sleep steals away) to drink the cup
you give of yourself.
(so blessed to) it stains your lips
the thirst never leaves you
it burns as a fever

stay warm
eyes open
i feel as you--
so blessed to
