At a moment when guitar bands are fighting for a place in modern music, King Mixer offers up deliberately backdated sounds with a postmodern flare, which become harder to pin down with each genre-defying twist. ... more

Track Name: Big Mistake (All Over Again)

Sonny's got a song -he's laid it all down on tape
he's got a little drunk -now he's hangin' on the edge of the fire escape
cuz everybody knows - it's all over this town
he lost his little girl to the teen brigade...
But there's something I've got to say
before you walk away forever
and here's hopin that it's not too late
to change that mindset I helped create
I been thinkin 'bout every word
that's in that song "Let's Stay Together"
cuz there's nothin' that I wouldn't do
but I guess that that's up to you

Jessie's got a job - she's learning how to live off the minimum wage
she said you'd never call - she said you had a date
he took you to see "Life Is Beautiful" and you're so great
well that's wrong - cuz everybody knows
that you and me apart is a big mistake

Someone help me wake up from this
bad bad bad bad bad dream
Someone help me wake up (!) from this
bad bad bad bad bad dream...whoa....whoaaaa....
nothin's gonna change without your love
Hasn't been the same since we broke up
all over again....all over again....

cuz everybody knows - that you and me apart is a big mistake
everybody knows - you and me apart is a big mistake
everybody knows - it's all over this town
that you and me apart is a big mistake
when you gonna wake up from this bad bad bad bad bad dream
cuz everybody knows...
it's just a big mistake
