about

Bishops West Virginia

“Martinsburg’s Bishops writes rock songs with a catchy, smart simplicity. They’re familiar sounding, yet refreshing, and you aren’t quite sure what the band will do next. The new Feel Alive EP has an ebb and flow that reels you in, hooks you quietly with a wistful vibe, and then speeds up and gets your head bobbing. It’s a pleasant ride that you’ll be glad you took." - WV Living ... more

Track Name: My Own Way
I've got a brand new plan
I've got guitars in a van
And I'll take 'em to the big city

I've got my mom and my dad
And they don't get that mad
When I tell them I've got no money

They say that, "son, you've gotta make it your own way
You've gotta do it alone
And we know you'll make us proud someday
And you can always come home"

I'm sorry I've got no time for a girlfriend
They always hate it when I am gone
But everybody's got to love something
And I don't think what I do is wrong

Cuz I've gotta make it my own way
Yeah I've gotta do it alone
And though you might want to marry me
I want to hang and play songs

You know that living this life it could kill me
But working a job is the same
But that death is guaranteed
So I'll take my chances today

Cuz I've gotta make it my own way
I've got to do it alone
So I don't care about the shit they say
Clear a path, I've gotta roam
Track Name: Get Down
I wanna stay up late
And I wanna tempt my fate
And I can never concentrate
On the things that make me great

And I probably wrote the book
On how to be a lovesick crook
Baby you do not have to look
I will tell you exactly what I took

Just let me stay the night
And it'll make everything alright
But you run me in the ground
Sometimes you gotta get high to get down

I can see you going for the kill
Baby let's talk about the things you spill
And everybody's got to get their thrill
And I don't wanna live in a world that's real
Track Name: Happy
You can always fuck up the things that you love
But it won't matter when push comes to shove
And every time I think I'm skating on thin ice
I can't find a single reason to be nice
To anyone, or anything

I just want to be happy

I've got people who talk at me, but not with me
Do you know what I mean?
And I've been living minute to minute, and every minute feels like a century
Do you know what I mean?
And I don't wanna stay, but I don't wanna leave

I just want to be okay

You can stay inside for your whole life
Get yourself a job, some debt, and a wife
Or you can keep all your best friends around
And every weekend lose yourself in the sound
Of your guitar, and let it drown

All of that guessin'
Track Name: Car Accident
I need you like a fire in my home
I need you like a collarbone
But I don't miss you that much
Cuz you've got that poison touch

I want you like a poor man wants the gold
I want you like a warm man wants the cold
But I don't miss you anymore
Because you left my body so sore

And I don't think it's very wrong
Yeah I don't think it's very wrong
That it's gone on for so long
That it's gone on for so long

I need you like a knife in my back
I want you like a heart attack
And I miss you like a car accident
And that is exactly what I meant

And I don't think it's very wrong
Yeah I don't think it's very wrong
That it's gone on for so long
That it's gone on for so long
Now I've gotta go it alone
Track Name: Oxygen
Let the wind take you where you want to go
Let me raise you from the low
Let me break you from the bone
Let me hate you like you're my own

Let the words soothe you like medicine
Let me breathe you, my oxygen
Track Name: Detox
Let's see how much I can handle
There's got to be an end
Let's try a different angle
Maybe someone will let us in
And all my friends have detoxed
And atoned for all their sins
But I just say it's their loss
As I wait for the party to begin

I know everybody breaks down
But it ain't gotta be that bad
I know I'm the talk of the town
But I've still got everything I had

You know I live a simple life
I keep my carbon footprint small
But there's a feeling I can't fight
I wanna destroy it all
And all my friends have relapsed
Yeah they let the demon win
I tell them to relax
The demon, he's my friend

I know everybody breaks down
But it ain't gotta be that bad
Now I'm the talk of your town
And I've lost everything I had
Track Name: Shouldn't Miss Me
Nothing matters at the end of the day
Your feelings scatter and they get in the way
You'll find a girl that you like okay
But it won't matter if she can't stay

But do you miss her now?
Do you miss her now?
You shouldn't miss her now, no

Just let it happen man, just let it go
There's way too much shit that you'll never know
Your friends are high, so that makes you low
Just sit back and enjoy the show

But do you miss them now?
Do you miss them now?
You shouldn't miss them now, no

Do you ever think about the things you do?
The way you did me baby made me blue
I gave a million chances to be true
But it don't matter now that we're through

But do you miss me now?
Do you miss now?
You shouldn't miss me now, no
Track Name: Shit Happens
Baby I know
That when you go to my show
That it does not feel right
Let's see how much regret you can hide

And I'm lucky to see
What you don't mean to me
Some people just fuck up all the time
I'm so happy that you ain't mine

I'm loving this distance
So baby get with it
I don't care, not at all, bye bye
Sometimes I wonder how you get to sleep at night
Track Name: Boy
Wake up boy
There's a lot of work to do
Take it boy
Everyone's so damn sick of you

Stupid boy
Nobody raised you wrong
Stupid boy
Who you gonna blame this one on?

Crazy boy
You're so used to slamming doors
Stupid boy
No one's gotta love you anymore

Wake up boy
There's a lot of work to do
Take it boy
Everyone's so damn sick of you

Shut it, boy
Nobody raised you wrong
Stupid boy
Who you gonna blame this one on?
Track Name: Nightmare
Home is just a word that you put on a place
Love is just a thing that you put to a face
And I don't know what they mean to me
And I don't know where I'm supposed to be

I grew up, or so I am told
When all I want is a pretty hand to hold
And I do not feel safe here
Oh my God, I'm not safe here

For every dream there is a nightmare

Truth is just a thing that you hear about when she sings
It melts the snow, may you bloom in the spring
You know this darkness, it cannot last too long
You'll survive, in your heart you are strong
You'll survive, in your heart you are strong

For every dream there is a nightmare
