about

Fronz Arp Brisbane, Australia

The strange machine which is Fronz Arp grinds like a tattered, angry little hurdy gurdy. With dramatic jaunt and seesawing melodies that have been compared to weird-pop wonders, such as David Bowie and Tom Waits

“...songs full of drama and action, designed to get pulses racing and yet still sounding both intricate and adventurous” Rave Magazine

Track Name: You Do it To Yourself
You do it to yourself
You fuck yourself and run
Like you're a one night stand
Through the window I see you disappear again
Still running like its someone elses fault
And thats why I see you come and go

I don't know
Why the surest parts of life
Keep falling through my hands
Why nothing ever goes the way we plan
Just tell yourself that we can start again
So its easier to come and go

I don't know
why there's never just an easy way out

What I want
Because I'm always disappointed by
What I've got
Just a crazy dream of everything I'm not

I don't know
Why there's never just an easy way out

I'm driving myself crazy
And I don't understand
How you make it look so easy
And there's no one to blame but myself
For anything at all

Money's not enough
Never goes far enough anyway
And if I let you down
How it pierce my soul
So just go go go go
And don't wait for me
Track Name: Our Little Secret
Everything's better with you
So starting at the laces
And working backwards
Til everything's coming undone
Like a parlor trick escape
From cords and shackles

But where is this going
Because I'm not so fortunate as this
And in the morning you

Oh there's no need to worry
Its our little secret
So tie it up tightly
We were only making love
There in the darkness
Under the starlight
We were only making love

I fall as the world starts rise\
I'm trying to understand
I'm working back through
All of the words that we said
Please help me understand
Why our scars are broken

But where is this going
Because I'm not so fortunate as this
And in the morning you

Oh there's no need to worry
Its our little secret
So tie it up tightly
We were only making love
There in the darkness
Under the starlight
We were only making love

I'm so excited all the time
We dance around this conversation
I'm so tired and so confused
Without an actual explaination

Oh there's no need to worry
Its our little secret
So tie it up tightly
We were only making love
There in the darkness
Under the starlight
We were only making love
Track Name: Designer Children
Why don't we
Pour a drink to calm our thoughts
To pause and let
A day just pass us by
I feel like I'm always running out of time

And have I done enough
To let it out
When all is said and done
For tomorrow
As if we'll ever know

Where are we?
Did you ever think that we could mend
The damage done
So we can start again
My friends, designer children holding hands
And walking blind

But have I done enough
to let it out
When all is said and done
For tomorrow
We're talking to ourselves
For tomorrow
As if we'll ever know

Just stop and let a day pass by
Though we feel we're running out of time
Because we may never know
Track Name: Hide and Seek
Lets play a game of hide and seek
So close your eyes and count to 3
And when darkness settles down our cheeks
Let your fingers search for me

But I'm not there
I'm not there
If I couldn't be your hope to find
Let me be alone tonight

We sold our clothing 2nd hand
Because nothing goes the way we plan
With darkened souls to understand
The vision that our souls demand

But I'm not there

I clung so tightly to
Where my dirty feet they meet the ground
But with the tide turned the chips were down
There was nothing left for me to do
Track Name: A Song
Did you ever want to make a difference?
See your name up in lights for an instant?
But like the city falls away in the distance
These things will blow away

And now we're talking about making something last
You open my eyes

We might need a song for us
We might need a song for when these days go by

Did you ever get everything you dreamed of?
Then wish it was simple as it once was?
The more I get the more it doesn't seem like quite enogh
Well let it go away

And now we're talking about making something last
You open my eyes

We might need a song for us
We might need a song for when these days go by

And we barely sleep at night
Another day crawls into morning light
You turn your head and start walking out the door

Did you ever want to make a difference?
Just let it go away

We might need a song for when these days go by
Track Name: The Escape Artist
The art of escaping is going nowhere
But leave a trail to fool the hunters
And find a place in the darkness where no on can find us

When we can't run away where are we going to go?
When we can't run away where are we going to go?
I gave it everything I've got
Battled with all that I am not
Wanted it all now I don't want it anymore

But I have dreams of flying high above
And on my wings I'd find a place where
No one can find us
But close that door, the sun is rising up
The day has found us

And we can't run away, so where are we going to go
When we can't run away where are we going to go

Because I gave it everything I've got
Battled with all that I am not
Wanted it all now I don't want it anymore
When I fell
Back to the ground so fast
I should've known right from the start
Just wanted to be more then the man that I am
And I fell
But starting from now its going to change
Though we may never be the same
I wanted it all now I don't want

Where are we going to go?
When the are of escaping
Is to go no where at all
Track Name: Bulletproof
Safe inside this bulletproof vest
Safe from harm, safe from death
So I'll walk out into enemy fire
Am I safe inside guilded cage
Safe from time, safe from rage
So I'll walk out and face the fire

I should've told you I wouldn't stop
Should've told you I'd never give up
Before you started walking

Am I safe behind this concrete wall
Safe and sound, safe from it all
So I'll try to build it higher

I should've told you I wouldn't stop
Should've told you I'd never give up
Before you started walking

And if I've learned anything from this life
I know that anything can happen
And I wish I was bulletproof
