about

Bender SF San Francisco, California

Bender is a San Francisco-based rock band formed in 2005. The offering is a collection of high energy original tunes ... think Pearl Jam, The Who, Green Day and Cake mashed in a blender - with a little sprinkling of humble, wishful thinking. The band's debut EP a.Politco was released in 2008, followed by their second EP Fiction in 2012. Bender is currently touring and writing new material. ... more

Track Name: Truth is Dead
Holy war coming down like rain
You say it’s different, but it looks the same
We the people give and give again
Tell the truth. We will believe it.

Tell me now if I’ll be the one
Down too many, I’m not your only son
Holy water raining at your feet
Truth is dead. It’s all inside your head

Tell the truth, the truth is dead
Tell the truth, the truth is dead

(Tell) truth to power, you don’t believe it
Truth is real, (but) you must receive it
For a cause we can’t decide on...

Holy War, coming down like rain
You said it’s ours but it’s in your name
Intention strikes, and now they feel our pain
A hard solution, it just won’t go away

Truth is dead.
Track Name: Found My Way
I found my way up there
That’s where I found I knew you
And now I fall down there
Right where I fell in love with you

You can’t listen to what I say
To you words never come true
Oh now listen to what I say
I should have listened to you

I turned you on and off
I turned you upside down
Don’t want to leave you lost
Just want to find you found

You can’t listen to what I say
To you words never come true
Oh now listen to what I say
I should have listened to you
Track Name: Crying Out Loud
What did you say to me?
What did you think about
the way it has to be?
What did you say to me? to me...

Arms wide open, crying out loud…

What did you do today?
To set their minds at ease,
and tell us all to think your way.
Why should you have the say? The say...

Arms wide open. You’re calling out.
Now you sold us, now you sold us out.
And now you tell them.... for crying out loud…

Games and lies and alibis,
never taking on the blame.
Why should we be surprised?
Could have told you just the same... the same.

Arms wide open. You’re calling out.
Now you sold us, now you sold us out.
And now you tell them.... for crying out loud…
Track Name: Deadman
Why bother with the votes?
The coat of arms rules.
You play us for fools.
Give your money, give your time
I’m just a cog, a simple thing
to help you win.

You came before me
destroy me
torture me.
Treat me like a dead man.

Playing for the only team
you seem to score but never win.
Oh, I forgive your sin.

It’s not the only chance you say
how about the sympathy.
Oh how can it be?

You came before me
destroy me
torture me.
Treat me like a dead man.

These chains that bind you
grind you causing pain
They’re not for you to gain.

Will I live again
Will I learn again
When I’m a dead man
Who’s going to lift you up
Who’s going to feel your touch
When I’m a dead man

Why bother with the votes?
The coat of arms rules.
You play us for fools.
Give your money, give your time
I’m just a cog, a simple thing
to help you win.

You came before me
destroy me
torture me.
Treat me like a dead man.

Will I live again
Will I learn again
When I’m a dead man
Who’s going to lift you up
Who’s going to feel your touch
When I’m a dead man
