Julius Sumner Miller

No politics. Some science. A lot of fun.

You see, the band is named for the Hilarious House of Frightenstein’s famed physics Professor, Julius Sumner Miller. They deliver their music just as the Professor delivered physics lessons: defiantly, in double-time. ... more

Track Name: No God
NO GOD
Clear out your conscience from immoral acts abound
Ask for some forgiveness… you’re shot down
Shot them down… Shot them down

Pray for starving children with gold crosses all around
Ask some donations… you’re shot down
Shot them down… Shot them down

I just wanna see this God in which you believe
He’s Not Real… He’s Not Real
I just wanna see, this God in which you believe
He’s Not Real, She’s Not Real, They’re Not Real
IT’S NOT REAL

Global Warming is a hoax, but Noah’s Ark is sound
Now that’s some stupid shit … you’re shot down
Shot them down… Shot them down

A bible verse in your bio... you think you’re so profound
It’s all just make believe… you’re shot down
Shot them down… Shot them down

I just wanna see this God in which you believe
He’s Not Real… He’s Not Real

I just wanna see, this God in which you believe
He’s Not Real, She’s Not Real, They’re Not Real
IT’S NOT REAL

You judge me for my whiskey bottle,
but drink the words from your worthless bible
You fund your fable with people’s money,
But when you die, it’s still not sunny
You know you’re wrong, it’s all a tale,
And I bet your hand won’t take a nail.
If it’s a sin these things I say
I guess it’s time you pray.
I guess it’s time you pray.
I guess it’s time you pray.
I guess it’s time you pray.
I guess it’s time you pray.
I guess it’s time you pray.
Track Name: Drank the Ocean Dry
Drank The Ocean Dry

I awoke, beside a phone booth
lying on the cold dark ground
sun was coming up and the shit was going down

I don't really, really wanna fight
baby, baby put down that butcher knife
never meant for nothing, I can hear the sirens coming now

You and I drank the ocean dry
you and I drank the ocean dry
turn and wave goodbye through my bloodshot eyes
you and I drank the ocean dry

I'll take your beer, out into the night
These cops don't find the situation all right
We’re lost, not found… but someday, someday I'll come around

Now I’m helping my lady through a window
into Smith's, into Smith's old shack
Mrs. Officer’s hot on our heels, she's got a pistol, a pistol of black

You and I drank the ocean dry
you and I drank the ocean dry
turn and wave goodbye through my bloodshot eyes
you and I drank the ocean dry
Track Name: Shot Club
Shot Club

Whiskey Bourbon - Line em all up
Sparkling Wine - Drunk as fuck
Tequila or Rum - Quite the theme
It’s a harmless crime - Ponzy Scheme
We don’t have money - We’ll be fine
Let’s ask that honey - The dot she’ll sign

Ma’am pardon me
These shots you see
There could be three
Just join the tree

Now find a friend
Their ear we’ll bend
And I’ll be drinking (we’ll be drinking)… for free
Track Name: She
SHE
She writes a book, with a knife and your blood
A tale of deep sorrow… once true love
When you first met, you never could see
She was gonna bring you to your knees

If she has a heart,
she’s probably never used it
I bet she doesn’t know it’s even there
But when you poured it all out,
she was so burned out…
… with your shit, so she didn’t care… she didn’t care

She shared a smile, with a flirt and you believed…
It was time for feelings on your sleeve.
Now it’s all for not, and you were dead wrong
‘Cause anything she had was now long gone

If she has a heart,
she’s probably never used it
I bet she doesn’t know it’s even there
But when you poured it all out,
she was so burned out…
… with your shit, so she didn’t care… she didn’t care

She holds your heart, in her hand, with your grudge
You both lean in for a goodbye hug
The cold smirk on her face, that you will never see
A telling tale that she’s fucking free.

If she has a heart,
she’s probably never used it
I bet she doesn’t know it’s even there
But when you poured it all out,
she was so burned out…
… with your shit, so she didn’t care… she didn’t care

Hey there man, you’re looking so cool
I really like your jacket
You got get slacks and a nice smile
I think you’re good at math!!

Complimentary Tourettes

Hey there ma’am

And I like your smile
You got great swagger and your posture
Is all kinds of awesome!!

Hockey, Girls, Disappointment

Son,
We need to talk
About those girls, and your grades and that weak wrist shot.
Son,
We can’t agree
You should be working for a future and use your degree.

Hockey Hockey Hockey… Girls Girls Girls… I disappointed my dad
Hockey Hockey Hockey… Girls Girls Girls… I disappointed my dad

Dad,
You need to listen
I got skates and a date and I’m not in prison.
Dad,
Can’t you see
The future’s looking good and I don’t pay for weed.

Hockey Hockey Hockey… Girls Girls Girls… I disappointed my dad
Hockey Hockey Hockey… Girls Girls Girls… I disappointed my dad
Track Name: Red Dawn
Red Dawn

Things are different now
They’re way off course
A group of teens
Fighting the Soviet force

The radiator’s busted
No water, just pee.
Behind enemy lines
In the middle of World War 3

We’re all gonna die
Don’t shed tears for me
A Re-education camp
Matt RPG!

Chorus
D: The chair is against the wall, the chair is against the wall, the chair is against the wall
Everyone: Wolverines
D: John has a long mustache, John has a long mustache, John has a long mustache
Everyone: Wolverines. Wolverines, Wolverines, Wolverines

Verse 2

How long we here Jed?
Til we don't hear that no more.
It was one on five
I got myself 4

All of this hate
gonna burn you up kid
It keeps me warm
For As long as I live

What happens to mom, dad?
Dad, Where is she?
You can’t afford to be crying
Boys… Avenge Me!!!!

Chorus
D: The chair is against the wall, the chair is against the wall, the chair is against the wall
Everyone: Wolverines
D: John has a long mustache, John has a long mustache, John has a long mustache
Everyone: Wolverines. Wolverines, Wolverines, Wolverines

America… is a whorehouse… where the revolutionary ideals of your forefathers… are corrupted
and sold in alleys… by vendors of capitalism
Track Name: We Teach Nothing
We Teach Nothing

There’s a good time,
When I know I’m late.
I’m waiting at a red light in another stupor haze
I wanna teach
That it’s not right…
But I gotta get back to work, and last night I drank for days

That ache is fine,
So I’ll try to skate
Through this work day, so I get myself paid
I hear the preach,
A rat in the maze
I dig in the glove box for another dart to blaze

Why do I do this… grind until I bleed?
Throw away my life for things that I don’t need?
Sponged for all I’m worth, for someone else’s greed?
Who gives a shit if the king succeeds?

I went in thinking,
I passed the test
And the disappointment hits when I got the answers wrong
Ignore the messages,
Social media hexes,
The Effort’s failing… and my attention is long gone

I never knew now,
That I needed know how
To weave these worlds together so I can survive
It’s all a waste of time,
So, I guess I’ll get in line.
To Punch the out clock… as home I start to drive

Why do I do this… grind until I bleed?
Throw away my life for things that I don’t need?
Sponged for all I’m worth, for someone else’s greed?
Who gives a shit if the king succeeds?

My new friends are better than my old friends,
My new friends are better than my old friends,
My new friends are better than my old friends
Track Name: Order 66
Order 66

The longer you keep this going
It’s getting fucking boring
You’re a modern-day snake oil man

The Ace of Bass is filler
A fucking self-named killer
You really are you own number one fan

Never say what you do or do what you say
Stealing from others really makes you lame
Changing the game one line at a time
Feeding your ego with someone else’s dime
They’ll spin your wheel
so, your worth feels real

When they come to senses
And see you’re climbing fences
That others built long before you arrived

They’ll find it’s all a lie
Cause you’re no Jedi
The drones will leave, and it’ll be your demise

Never say what you do or do what you say
Stealing from others really makes you lame
Changing the game one line at a time
Feeding your ego with someone else’s dime
They’ll spin your wheel
so, your worth feels real

We watch from the stands as you cut your own bangs

Never say what you do or do what you say
Stealing from others really makes you lame
Changing the game one line at a time
Feeding your ego with someone else’s dime
They’ll spin your wheel
so, your worth feels real
Track Name: Interesting Interests
Intertesting Interests

I wish I had interesting interests
I wish I was straight in my rounds
I want to be clear in deception
I want to be firm with my sound

I want to do what you’re doing
Every night
I want to do what you’re doing
Without the fight

I wish I had someone to go solo
I wish I had feelings to frown
I want to find lost ones to follow
I want to be dry when I drown

I want to do what you’re doing
Every night
I want to do what you’re doing
Without the fight

I wish for a room full of empties
I wish you were down to make up
I want to be high when I’m falling
I want a free way to be stuck

I want to do what you’re doing
Every night
I want to do what you’re doing
Without the fight
Track Name: Cosplay
My girl’s right beside me till the very end
Cause life’s no fun when you pretend
Her love wasn’t dressed up, right from the start.
Cause she don’t cosplay with my heart

You take care of me… I’ll take care of you
This is how it works, cause you’re into what I’m into
You take care of me… I’ll take care of you
This is how it works, cause you’re into what I’m into

Those games are never played, we know what to do
Life’s so good when the mask’s removed.
Never puts on a disguise when we’re apart.
Cause she don’t cosplay with my heart

You take care of me… I’ll take care of you
This is how it works cause you’re into what I’m into
You take care of me… I’ll take care of you
This is how it works cause you’re into what I’m into
