about

The Davis Baby Portland, Oregon

Ben Grim + G-Whiz = The Davis Baby. We recorded a 4 song EP of old school pop punk, the way we loved it back in the late 80's and early 90's. Back before pop punk was exploited by major labels & Mtv. Hopefully this recording will help bring back the sound we all loved so much! Physical release out soon in Japan on Waterslide Records! ... more

Track Name: Second Chance to Shine (Demo)
I've got a lot of wasted days and wasted nights
under my belt
I've been living a life stranded and now my ship is going down
but I'm still holding on
to hopes that somehow...

I'd finally get my say and my second chance to shine
it feels like I've been waiting my whole life

what am I gonna do?
I guess I've got to get over myself
I've been left behind, I've been waiting for someone to save me
nobody wants to hear me crying & complaining

Can I finally get my say & my second chance to shine
it feels like I've been waiting my whole life

What am I gonna do with myself?
What am I gonna do now that I've changed my mind?

Will I finally get my say and my second chance to shine?
it feels like I've been waiting my whole life

Will I finally get my say?
(and my second chance to shine)
Will I finally get my day?
(and my second chance to shine)
Will I finally get my way and my second chance to shine
Track Name: Face It (Demo)
Something ugly is following me everywhere
it's taken control and I feel it in my heart

No I won't let this fuck with me, no more
it's time to face it

It used to make me scared that I was gonna die
but now I'm ready to take control
so come on now because I don't don't care
I did it to myself

No I won't let this fuck with me, no more
it's time to face it

what's over is done, I'll never give in again
to the panic and fear I've created

No I won't let this fuck with me, no more
it's time to face it, I'm gonna face it
Track Name: Turning Tides (Demo)
What do you do when the world caves in
and you finally realize nobody's watching over you
and have we been sleeping our days away while we get hypnotized
and one day it all comes crumbling down, too little too late

Changes are coming from within
and no matter how hard they try, the tides they are turning

you're gonna have to take the wheel
if you wanna find what you're looking for
because the damage is done, corroding the wire for far too long

they've got what it takes to set the world on fire
so what are we waiting for? We've got to make sure...

Changes are coming from within
and no matter how hard they try, the tides they are turning

now that there's no one left to blame and everyone can see right through you, we can't point our fingers at anyone else, no not this time

Changes are coming from within
and no matter how hard they try, the tides they are turning

the tides they are turning
Track Name: Tales to Astonish (Demo)
I don't know what the meaning is to all of this
and every day I'm struggling to keep my head above water
and I know I sound like a broken record
but lately I've been drifting away

to a different state of mind, with unfamiliar faces
I'm dreaming about you and trying not to wake,
looking for the magic

and I want you to come along with me
I wanna know there's something out there we can't explain
this place ain't doing it for me, but now there's something I can do
I've come to find out there's more than one way to fly

to a different state of mind, with your familiar faces
I'm dreaming about you and trying not to wake
and count the days as they roll on by

I count down to infinity yeah again and again
sometimes I'm not sure if I'm going crazy

and I want to tell, (I want to tell you)
tales to astonish you
I want to tell you tales we can believe in

and I'm drifting
to a different state of mind, to unfamiliar places
I'm dreaming about you and trying not to wake
up from this slumber without the answers

and I want to tell, (I want to tell you)
tales to astonish you
I want to tell you tales that we can believe in

I want to tell, (I want to tell you)
tales to astonish you
I want to tell you tales we can't explain
