about

The Chaw San Francisco, California

The Chaw is a four piece Psych Rock band from San Francisco.
The Chaw’s sound is very strong in character. Dark moody sounds, drenched in reverb, referencing soundtracks of the classic spaghetti westerns, big open bar chords and barky low register guitar leads ala Dick Dale, and psychedelic soundscapes, take you on a trip on a dusty trail through a vivid world, full of mystery, and intrigue. ... more

Track Name: Everything Wrong
If the puzzle piece aint gonna fit
just jam it on in instead
and if your mind is running and it don't want to quit
tell the body now is already dead

take your troubles out into the trash
when your neighbors they stop to ask
tell them the preacherman says its tuesday
it ain't till wednesday we receive the ash

doing everything wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, everything wrong
doing everything wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, everything wrong

when the days months they turn into years
a million tricks to swallow your fears
then you wake to see your sun has set
a million more to swallow regret oh no

doing everything wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, everything wrong
doing everything wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, everything wrong

lets say you build a chair to hold the world
go on and sit watch desire unfold
built from your shipwreck but the wood was curled
your sail of reason in a storm unfurled
to make that boat you tore apart your house
after the banker well he caught you just like a mouse
you bought that home when your conscience was right
after anything wrong never entered your mind

doing everything wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, everything wrong
doing everything wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, everything wrong

I feel I might have bought the lie
Track Name: The Whole Night Through
Somebodys upstairs pacing the whole night through
boot heels pounding i can hear him the whole night through
it sounds like a timetable maybe made for me and you
i always thought that dawn would be the thing to put an end to his sound
i swear its the other way around

one of these nights hes going to walk right out of his room
and the dawn that was looked for will never come into under his doom

Somebodys upstairs pacing the whole night through
boot heels pounding i can hear him the whole night through
it sounds like a timetable maybe made for me and you
i always thought that dawn would be the thing to put an end to his sound
i swear its the other way around
Track Name: The Road
Through the deep and the dark
melpomene is alive
trust in all the wheels that turn turn
though its cold in the night
keep on the drive for a while

he's got his thumb from his hand
and all your life in his smile
he says i'm going farther than you
to the end of the mile
keep on the drive for a while
just keep on the drive

he says i know you and we're just one man
there is no distance with the gift in his hand

come on and reason me out
in the wake of the mile
there's people running on the town
and just in your smile
keep on the drive for a while

he says i know you and we're just one man
there is no distance with the gift in his hand

no i never wanted to know
no i never, never, never wanted to know
that you'd be there waiting for me
that I'd be there waiting for you

that you'd be there waiting for you
that I'd be there waiting for me

keep on the drive for a while
Track Name: Rat
well i can't seem to get any love from you
no i can't seem to get any love from you
your not now the only one to hold the blues
no you never were the only one to hold the blues

well you'd think a rat from the cage
is going to stand up to a new name
its a long slow walk now right back in
right back in

well i can't seem to get what i need from you
no i can't seem to get what i need from you
go on tell me all of your troubles
its too late you've been bent by the world

well you'd think a rat from the cage
is going to stand up to a new name
its a long slow walk now right back in
right back in

well friend, I'm already here
ya i'm already here
Track Name: The Feud
You tell me now you don't believe the father
and that you'd never trust his son
and if we knew where the wind went
there wouldn't be any trouble since it all begun

you've been given a life with a plowshare
they claim and use all but the sun
you could call that a rift in understanding
could it matter however it begun

never is there an end to the feuding
even when you thought you'd won
endlessly endlessly you're left repeating
when your wondering how it begun

there's a feud, there's a feud with your neighbor
there's a feud with the father and with his son

You tell me now you won't concede to the father
just like his reckless son
and nevermind any hearts that need mending
its the conflict that will have won

the given life they use like a sailor
you take it all like a nun
could you look for a balance to the seasons
could it be the only world to come

never is there an end to the feuding
even when you thought you'd won
endlessly endlessly you're left repeating
when your wondering how it begun

there's a feud, there's a feud with your neighbor
there's a feud with the father and with his son

there's no end to where the spirit goes
or what the feud could become
Track Name: Mount Diablo
tell me who's living on the mount
tell me who's living on the mount
can he hear us scream and shout
can he hear us scream and shout

why can't we drink from the delta
why can't we drink from the delta
can you hear the laughing mountain
can you hear the laughing mountain

hear him beck and call

the place where the dogs go to trade
the place where the dogs go to trade
can you hear the laughing mountain
can you hear the laughing mountain

thank god you let the sun o'er your brow
Track Name: Changing Blues
he said im trying to tell you something you already know
and i fear it most days
so much so i can feel it in my bones
in my bones

it comes it goes
the harvest is plowed, its plowed then resown
i've no idea what you prayed to the changer
a stranger is coming
and the truth is getting old

i'd tell you all of my erring ways
you would return with a compassionate gaze
and only i will hold the black box of errors
i'd pass away
and you soon after

it comes it goes
the harvest is plowed, its plowed then resown
i've no idea what you prayed to the changer
a stranger is coming
and the truth is getting old

getting old
Track Name: I With You
if you have any love follow me around
if you have any love follow me around
it isn't desire, there is only you
there is not limit to what i would do

if you have any love follow me around
if you have any love follow me around
i understand but its the only way
i've been lost before but its the only way

oh but you
you pull me out of all thats blue
into the midnight air
and i with you.......
