Place to Live

about

A song about indecision.... about contentment... and greener grass, somewhere far, far away. Anthemic, brooding, with angst and peace, sitting on the same porch looking out over the trees and cell towers, neither of which NOW could live without. Indie, punk, electronica, and psychedelia keeping you close at HOME.

lyrics

PLACE TO LIVE

I NEED A PLACE TO LIVE!
THAT'S WARM AND COOL AT THE SAME TIME
I NEED A PLACE TO BE...
WHERE REASON RULES AND THE WEATHER'S FINE
I NEED A PLACE TO DREAM...
WHERE THE GREATEST GOD AIN'T JUST MINE
I NEED A PLACE FOR ME...
GO SUFFER FOOLS ON YER OWN DIME

I NEED A PLACE TO LIVE
WHERE YOU CAN STRETCH OUT YER MIND,
AND YOU CAN WIGGLE YER SOUL
WHERE THE DRUMS, THEY BEAT UNTIL DAWN
WE DANCE AND FOLLOW ALONG
AND ALL THE PEOPLE CAN LOVE
AND NO ONE CRIES THAT IT'S WRONG
I THINK I FOUND A... I FOUND A PLACE TO LIVE!

I NEED SOME ROOM TO BREATHE!
A MILLION PEOPLE AND I KNOW THEM ALL
I NEED TO CHANGE UP MY SCENE
GO WHERE BUILDINGS ARE SHORT AND THE TREES ARE TALL
I NEED SOME SPACE FOR ME
LAY IN THE GRASS AND WATCH THE LEAVES FALL
I'M OVERWHELMED BY THE SEA
BUT SOMETHING TELLS ME THAT I WON'T GO FAR AT ALL...

I NEED SOME ROOM TO BREATHE
WHERE YOU CAN WALK FOR A MILE
WITHOUT HEARING A SOUND
EXCEPT THE BIRDS AND THE BUGS
AND STICKS THAT CRUNCH ON THE GROUND
AND YOU CAN HEAR YERSELF THINK
CUZ THERE'S LESS PEOPLE AROUND
I THINK I FOUND A... I FOUND A PLACE TO LIVE!

I'VE FOUND A PLACE TO LIVE...
IT'S WARM AND COOL AT THE SAME TIME
I'VE FOUND A PLACE TO BE...
WITH ONE FOOT ON EITHER SIDE OF THE LINE
I'VE GOT A LOT TO GIVE!
A PULSE AND LIGHT OF A DIFFERENT KIND
I'VE FOUND THAT SPACE IN ME...
THE RENT AIN'T CHEAP, BUT THE VIEW IS ALL MINE.

Ownership San Francisco, California

OWNERSHIP is Cole Odin Berggren. It's hard-driving, psychedelic-electronic rock for NOW. Born from the twin hearts of San Francisco- a gritty underground DJ scene, and the blinding light of a rock and roll stage, it is music inspired by the raw moments of the human experience. It loves the hairs on end, uncontrollable smiles, and the concept of a song you can't take off repeat. ... more
