about

From the latest edition of Timothy Gassens's The Knights of Fuzz: "These boys describe themselves best: 'A little surf, a little fuzz, a little psych, a little Merseybeat... and a whole lot of garage. It's The Berries, and they want to install the spirit of 1966 in your head.' Though more gentle than a really nasty fuzz-garage combo, 'Candy Apple Sky', from their 2013 self-titled CD (on the Go Zombie! label) is a fine manifesto of their garage love. Welcome to the fuzz, lads!"

about

The Berries Columbia, South Carolina

The Berries are doing their part to reclaim a time when rock and roll was exciting, fun, and a little bit dangerous. They do all original material, and try to sound like they were trapped in an iceberg just before the release of the White Album and thawed out last Tuesday. ... more

Track Name: Lady Macbeth
First time I saw you, girl
You really blew my mind away
But now I'm with you, girl
And there's less of me day by day

I've been stuck here for so long
That everything just feels wrong
Let me be free (still got a hold on me)
Let me be free (too late to break free)

I wanna break away
If I could just get you to bend
Won't matter anyway
'cause you'll fight until the very end

I've been stuck here for so long
That everything just feels wrong
Let me be free (still got a hold on me)
Let me be free (too late to break free)

Stalling, resisting
I'm not gonna lose this fight
Falling, twisting
But nothing ever turns out right

I won't let you take me
Or break me
Better to let me go free
But it's getting too late
I feel that weight
Please someone come and save me

Let me be free (still got a hold on me)
Let me be free (too late to break free)

This has gone on far too long
Nothing about this seems right
But you've gotten much too strong
And I've gotten to weak to fight

I've been stuck here for so long
That everything just feels wrong
Let me be free (still got a hold on me)
Let me be free (too late to break free)
Track Name: Can't Forget About You
We knew each other when we were in school
Yeah, I used to carry your books
You were really something else
I knew you were more than good looks

It wasn’t just the things that you did
Or the things that you do
Can’t forget about you

I guess it was just a passing romance
We broke up, but no one’s to blame
I guess we never really had a chance
But I wish you’d remember my name

It wasn’t just the things that you did
Or the things that you do
Can’t forget about you

Every now and then I see you pass by
And I see you with another guy
Girl, I can’t help but cry

I wouldn’t be like this if you were a normal girl
I wouldn’t have remembered your name
But you changed the way I saw the world
My life would never be the same

It wasn’t just the things that you did
Or the things that you do
Can’t forget about you
Track Name: Wake Up
Looks like you’ve been living in a haze
You’ve been living in a dream these few days
You don’t think you’ll have to change your ways
Someone’s gonna have to pull you from the haze

Time------to wake up
Time------to shape up

I’m tired of watching you just stumble on by
If you want to live then you’re gonna have to try
Don’t let life pass you by
Lift your head up, look me in the eye

Time------to wake up
Time------to shape up

I don’t know what to do with you
You’re not the person I once knew
I tried to help you get on through
But I've gotta move on, too

Time------to wake up
Time------to shape up

Guess you just want to live in the haze
Living in a dream for the rest of your days
Still don’t think you’ll have to change your ways
Someone else’s gonna have to pull you from the haze

Time------to wake up
Time------to shape up
Track Name: Walk With Me
Walk, walk, walk with me…

I’ve seen you walking alone
As you head on home
You’re bound to have a scare
Out there, alone
You need a guy who’s got a watchful eye

Girl, Girl, Girl
Walk with me
Don’t Pretend
You can’t see me
Walk with me…
Walk with me…

C’mon girl, follow me,
I can take you home safely
I’m asking nothing from you
But I‘ll take what you give me
I can see it in your eyes
And the way you move your thighs
You want to…

Girl, Girl, Girl
Walk with me
Don’t Pretend
You can’t see me
Walk with me…
Walk with me…

I’ll savor this night
It felt alright
I think you did pretty well
You sure put up a fight
It was a moment of sin
It was good, let’s do it again

Girl, Girl, Girl
Walk with me
Don’t Pretend
You can’t see me
Walk with me…
Walk with me…
Track Name: Garden Girl
See you sitting in your garden, safe behind your garden wall.
Never looking past your borders, never looking out at all.
Gather every single flower, nothing anyone can share,
Pressed between your Bible pages, while the ground around is bare.

Come and step outside your garden, step outside your garden, girl.
Let me take you past the gateway, let me open up your world.
 
Other voices tried to call you, to the world you haven’t known.
You ignored them ‘til they vanished, watched your garden grow alone.
You act like it’s always springtime, all your beauty always ‘round.
You can’t see November coming, come to mow your garden down.

Come and step outside your garden, step outside your garden, girl.
Let me take you past the gateway, let me open up your world.

And if you come with me and leave the garden far behind,
I think you will agree, we might have better things in mind.

Garden can become a prison, walls keep in as well as out.
And when all your flowers have faded, you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Share your flowers while you have them-- one more opportunity.
Live outside the pretty prison; climb the garden wall to me.

Come and step outside your garden, step outside your garden, girl.
Let me take you past the gateway, let me open up your world.

Come and step outside your garden, step outside your garden, girl.
Let me take you past the gateway, let me open up your world.
