about

The Wet Secrets Edmonton, Alberta

The Wet Secrets are a five-piece rock and roll dance band from Edmonton. They play the kind of music you could expect to hear if The Stranglers piggybacked Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass through the Rose Parade. Grant Lawrence of CBC Radio 3 named their song "Secret March" one of the "Best 20 Songs of the Decade". Watch for their new album, in stores soonish or laterish.

Track Name: Maybe We'll Make A Plan
Maybe We'll Make A Plan

Lately
you don't have time for me
you don't have time for me
it would seem

Well maybe
I can try to find a way
I am going to find a way
that we both can live the dream

We never had to console
We never had to console one another
But now I know that one us might go
before the other

This life
is too big for the both of us
is too big for the both of us
to contain anymore
and I know one day what's in store

A harsh light
Shining up inside my eyes
Shining up inside my eyes
and that song it ain't right
the dream is dead
when the dreamers die


We never had to console
We never had to console one another
But now I know that one us will go
before the other
Unless we make a plan

Maybe we'll make a plan
Track Name: Sunshine
Is this your favourite thing?
Dwelling on what might have been
Fuck the future!
Stay inside with that hood rat behaviour
I really don't mind

Paranoia reigns and you got down with the chemicals
I saw your eyes
Wider than saucers and higher than high
Well, talk is cheap but silence is cheaper
You should try it some time
Just close your mouth and pantomime

I want to die in the sunlight
I want to die in the day
I want to die in the sunshine
In the city

I woke up with a headache and
The sun was beating down on my skin
Red and peeling, eyes are bleeding
I'm out of my skull
Pass the lotion now before the sun sets on my mind
And I am forced to go inside again
With some territorial bullshit dispenser
I'm out on my own
I'd rather go outside and die alone

I want to die in the sunlight
I want to die in the day
I want to die in the sunshine
In the city

Dark troubling clouds appear
As we reach the end I hear
I don't want to haunt these
Darkened corridors
I never wanted to live forever
But as predictable as the weather
You can never really be sure
How you're gonna go

To the light I will go, I suppose
Track Name: Kill My Love
Kill My Love

It's what a body in motion looks like
just a body in motion kinda looks like you
Gotta put it together just right
Gotta keep it together or it's just no use

From the roof to the streets below
it's got a hold on us
and it won't let go
Everything, everyone we know
it's gonna drag us down
but we can't let go

it's a murmuring heartbeat all night
it's a fist in a fistfight thrown at you
it's a hand in a glove it just fits right
it's a push, it's a shove
It's the gutter for you

From the roof to the streets below
it's got a hold on us
and it won't let go
Everything, everyone we know
it's gonna drag us down
but we can't let go

No Amount of Bullshit will Kill My Love

From the roof to the streets below
it's got a hold on us
and it won't let go
Everything, everyone we know
it's gonna drag us down
but we can't let go

Baby steps to the great unknown
it's going to kill our love
but we can't let go
The highest highs to the lowest lows
It's got an eye on us and we can't say no
Track Name: Nightlife
Nightlife

Fold your arms and don't deny
That anything is wrong with this scene
By the time the cops arrive
Zombies will have eaten my brain
Photographs of me survive
But no one will remember my name
Or what they did with all my stuff

Is this the nightlife
We crave?
Is this the nightlife
These days?

Two pistols shooting in the night
Get your dander up for a fight
I'd rather lock myself inside
Than watch as human decency dies
And now the room begins to spins
That spinning used to be so much fun
But now it's just nauseating me

Is this the nightlife
We crave?
Is this the nightlife
These days?

Oh turn around
You're a face in the crowd
You killed the fun

Oh decency where have you gone?
You're R.I.P and D.O.A
Tick tock danger dynamite
Is going off inside of my head yeah
These vultures circling my bones
Just as I was taxiing home
Can something so bad get any worse?

Is this the nightlife
We crave?
Is this the nightlife
These days?
Is this what kid's like
These days?
Nightlife?
Knifefights?
Nightlife?
Track Name: Get Your Shit Together
Get Your Shit Together

Walk us through how this goes
Well apres-vous how apropos
You say you're good, well I don't know
Good for nothing I suppose
Get your shit together
Whatever, you'll do what you want

Why you gotta be the typically difficult one?
Why you gotta be so typically difficult HUH?
Typically difficult

What's that cooking in the shed?
Helicopters overhead?
Tin foil hat upon your head, yeah
Voices whispering whispering everything's better
Get your shit together
Whatever, you'll do what you want

Why you gotta be the typically difficult one?
Why you gotta be so typically difficult HUH?
Typically difficult
Track Name: Floating In The Sky
Floating In The Sky

I dreamt I saw myself
I had run the race with the other rats
Slowed up so I finished last
Then I looked around for a place to hang my hat

There nothing left in sight
Just the stars up in the sky
Tiny points of light

Old man with the pointy hat
Said the jig was up and up is where it's at
I paid a lot it's the place to be
For a woman like you and a half a man like me

Take some comfort in the night
There's a cosmic pair of eyes
Rolling in the sky

Floating in space all our lives
Bodies and feelings
Our thoughts are alive
Bodies decay but our minds
Are still floating in the sky

I heard a braying sound
So I rolled out of bed and I landed on a cloud
Donkey said to spread the seed
There's a home in the sky for a piece of meat like me

Skin the other rats alive
For the cosmic pair of eyes
Floating in the sky

Floating in space all our lives
Bodies and feelings
Our thoughts are alive
Bodies decay but our minds
Are still floating in the sky
Track Name: Animals In Disguise
Animals in Disguise

Let's take time
Let's unwind
wound too tight
let's take flight

oh you think that I'm so primitive
oh you think that I'm uncivilized
oh you think that I'm some sort of savage
but everything here is just as advertised

Animals you and I
With animal instincts on our minds
Animals in disguise
Never let it show

oh you make my brainstem tingle
oh you've given me quite a thrill
oh you make my body ache baby
and oh oh you
you probably always will

oh you shouldn't fight what's natural
oh you shouldn't fight me no more
everything alive does the evolution
from the top of the trees
to the bottom of the ocean floor

Animals you and I
With animal instincts on our minds
Animals in disguise
Never let it show

I want to live in the jungle with my pride
No inhibitions
We'll never have to fight who we are

Animals

Animals you and I
With animal instincts on our minds
Animals in disguise
Let's do what animals do
Animals you and I
With animal instincts on our minds
Animals in disguise
Never let it show
Track Name: I Don't Think So
I Don't Think So

Discouraging words
Is that what I heard?
I thought that you said
Everything would be easy
I thought we were cool
cool and the gang
you sharpened your fangs
is it just sinking in?

I don't think so
I don't know
Why we drink so
I don't know

Dissapointment when you're young
Sets you up for disappointment now that you're old
Disenchantment all along?
Yeah I think so

Cappy my man
are you still in command?
or just a passenger on
a ship that is sinking
You fucked up the plan
Let's try it again
If you never grow up
you will never get old

I don't think so
I don't know
Why you drink so
I don't know

Dissapointment when you're young
Set you up for disappointment now that you're old
Disenchantment all along?
Yeah I think so
From running trenches when you're young
To holding down park benches now that you're old
Dissapointment all along
Yeah I think so
Yeah I think so
Track Name: Chains
Chains

I've seen the fire in the eyes
of the darkest souls who own the night

And I've heard the words I despise
from the blackest mouths
in the morning light

Heathens arise
Shady tears and shifty eyes
I need a metaphor not an alibi
Pamphlets and lies
in a knapsack, suit and tie
you're not a metaphor
you're selling shit we'll never buy

Oh don't you darken my door
The midnight pariah's asleep on the floor
Narrowest minds can't refrain
But how can I sleep when you're rattling my…
chains

All your invisible plans
misguided by these faulty hands
For your invisible friends
They always lead you to
pitchforks and torches in the end
oh what's the score don't you love me anymore?
I said no no no not I
oh what's the score don't you love me anymore?
I said no no no no no not I
selling shit we'll never buy

Chained to the top of the permanent wave
I know I'm headed now for an early grave
out of the darkness step to the right
how can I sleep when you're rattling my..

Chains
Track Name: Death Of The Party
Death Of The Party

Before you're sober
We're coming over
We've got a plan in place
just an intimate date with a million friends

In your condition
Your inhibition
it tastes like chicken
Now if you take a drink you can pass it on

Why must you fight it
We know you like it
Who paid to stand in place
Up against the wall with your arms tucked in?

Oh don't think about it
Don't destroy it
Just enjoy it
Oh don't criticize it
just pretend if you don't like it
Some people get a high
As low lives bringing other people down
Death of the party


Last time we saw you
was in the green room
you smelled like perfume
you just sat in the back when the band went on

You're so artistic
so pessimistic
I must have missed it
when they said it was cool not to have any fun

Must you control it?
If you let go it
feels good now to warm it up
like a faucet you've gotta let it run

Oh don't think about it
Don't destroy it
Just enjoy it
Oh don't criticize it
just pretend if you don't like it
Some people get a high
As low lives bringing other people down
Death of the party

Death of the party
Track Name: What's The Fucking Point? (Zenko's Theme)
What's The Fucking Point? (Zenko's Theme)

Saving all your money why?
You're going to die
Sooner or later
Leave the money for your kids
They're going to blow it on the drugs
you were too chicken shit to try
doesn't it make you sigh

What's the fucking point?

Well everything is sweet
when life is a gift
you don't want to return it
Lying in a hospital bed
You're throwing up your fists saying Now what the fuck is this?
I did everything just right
It's not fair
Save your strength
To roll your eyes
One last time

What's the fucking point?
Well, What's the fucking point?
