about

The Minor Three Boston, Massachusetts

The Minor Three are a classic power trio...sort of. There is dynamic energy like the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and heavy blues-tinged riffs like The Black Keys. The writing is personal and intelligent and the sound is fresh and modern with references to a myriad of influences, old and new. ... more

Track Name: What's Good
Don't act like I never told you
So sure these words I spoke
Open up, take a breath, and blow
Left burning in my throat

You bring me your confession
And ask if you're forgiven
But your integrity is in question
What makes the next time different

I won't let you bring me down
I don't have to let this one play out

I've got to have some peace of mind
I want nothing more
What's good is what's important
What's good to you is foreign

I won't let you bring me down
I don't have to let this one play out

The other day I saw your face
I had to hide and turn away
This can't go on one more day
You told a lie in the bed you made

I won't let you bring me down
I don't have to let this one play out
Track Name: Lingering
We could be the best of friends
You should leave me alone
I'm left with no defense
When you've got nothing on
If you crawled inside my bed
You'd just throw me off
We could be the best of friends
You should leave me alone

There's no stopping it
No stopping, no

Don't be mistaken with
What I give when I give in
I don't remember what I did
It was whiskey I was swimming in
Your body's lingering
The smell is permanent
Don't be mistaken with
What I give when I give in

There's no stopping it
No stopping, no
Track Name: Alternating Current
We spent a day on the floor
Cutting pictures up
There was talk of more
There was a hint of love

You asked if I would leave with you
If you went on the road
I said I couldn't go
So you went on your own

I wish that I'd gone along
To see your pretty face some more
I wish that I'd gone along
You'd sing your songs, I'd play guitar

Now your face is haunting me
The picture we cut up
You're terrified and beautiful
Like you'd seen a ghost

Your eyes, they follow me
I see them in a crowd
Oh how I hope they belong to you
I can't put mine down

I wish that I'd gone along
To see your pretty face some more
I wish that I'd gone along
You'd sing your songs, I'd play guitar

You are the sound that moves through me
And I want some more
The current alternates
You leave me on the floor

I wish that I'd gone along
To see your pretty face some more
I wish that I'd gone along
You'd sing your songs, I'd play guitar
Track Name: Half Man's Blues
I can't hear you talking
I can't see your lips move
I can't hear a sound
Unless you tell the truth

I got to be sure darling
You're not gonna go
Find another life
And leave me all alone

Good lord darling I give you everything
But it don't compare from what you take from me

I see those other men, girl
And how they look at you
And how you turn and wink
And how I'm made a fool

I gave you time to change your ways
I gave you far too long
I'll give you about 5 minutes more
And then I'm gone

Good lord darling I give you everything
But it don't compare from what you take from me
Track Name: Figments
The whole world is cold
I like awake in bed
The only sound
Is my fading breath

Forgive our sins
Keep your daily bread
Jesus won't save you
From this kind of death

I want to break apart
I want the stars to fall...
...in line, but everything
Just takes too long

I'm not meant for this
I swear I don't belong
I'll run underwater
All night long

If there are no friends
There are no hypocrites
When my eyes are closed
You're just Figments

I want to break apart
I want the stars to fall...
...in line, but everything
Just takes too long

The door is closed, & I'm all alone
With a dull ache in my head
There's no more sound
This body's almost dead

If there are no friends
There are no hypocrites
When my eyes are closed
You're just Figments
Track Name: Oh
There's a breed of love
Not the one you're thinking of
The one that purity's not part of

What you all think you know
I forgot a life ago
When she left me swinging from the gallows

You know my intentions
If you have objections
You don't have to stay on

I'm a man of dignity
I'll tell you before you lie with me
A gentleman don't always want a lady

Come over here darling
Rest your weary soul
Lay your head upon my pillow

Tell me all your troubles
Tonight I am your man
You've got me 'til the morning
Track Name: Expectations
My life's work is to
Get to the end
With as few scars as I can

So far my efforts
Have been lacking
Cuts and bruises, I'm broken

My life's work is to
Hold up my head
Not ashamed of what I did (or didn't do)

To be a man
Is to be subject to
The mess we make of emotions

Examine the company I'm in
Your love must meet my expectations

It's all in a day's work
To ease your panic
With white lies and placating

What I should tell you is
I've been wounded
Mortal sins unforgiven

I've been waiting for
Perfect timing
Counting days 'til the ending

Examine the company I'm in
Your love must meet my expectations

My life's work is to
Get to the end
Track Name: The Devil Upstairs
It's just like I'm not there
And you don't even care
The light is on
I shouldn't have to ask
To spend some time at home
I shouldn't have to go
Don't try to be my friend
Just take care of your own

Keep my hands off your policy
Go find some shelter, go into hiding
I'm under your foot
The ground is shaking

I hear about your life
Can't imagine what it's like
I bet it's torn apart
All over the floor
Shit lives where it's thrown
Left to decompose
Surrounded by it all
I bet this place is overgrown

Keep my hands off your policy
Go find some shelter, go into hiding
I'm under your foot
The ground is shaking
Track Name: Never Let You Go
Float across the river
Welcome to the shore
I will take you higher
Than you'll ever go

I will be the garden
You will be the rose
Solid ground to hold you
When the wind blows

I can sleep for so long
Quiet nights I never heard before
I know
Something tells me I should never let you go

You can be desire
I can just give in
You can be my woman
Do you understand (I think you understand)

I can sleep for so long
Quiet nights I never heard before
I know
Something tells me I should never let you go
