about

Mason Tucson, Arizona

Mason has released their first full length album ‘Midnight Road.’ The style they’ve sculpted is reminiscent of rock music of the 60’s, with Hendrix-like vocals, bracing guitar solos, Zeppelin-esque drums, and overdriven bass. ‘Midnight Road’s 10 original tracks are all stripped-down, short blasts of blue-collar blues, heavy on the rock along with some contemporary flash. ... more

Track Name: Rockstar Paperboy
Can I borrow a cigarette
No it’s not my addiction

You just sound like a crazy mess
To arouse my suspicion

Keep on sitting there little girl
I’m just impatient and feverish

And when you leave here this evening remember
The spinners, are hungry, and well dressed

Yes it’s time for a dancing song
All the drinks have some secrets

Let them stare while we slip away
The bliss is ours for the keeping

Don’t let the night tell you different girl
We’ll be alive for eternity

You’re unaware but the sounds are loud and clear
Just listen to ‘em baby, yeah

One more round for the broken ones
One more round for the others too

Let’s push the people together
Let’s turn the night into truth

And if the bars are all closing
Then find a place to proceed

Fall asleep, wake up in the morning
So we all have something dicey to read

Rockstar Paperboy
Track Name: Shackle Caster
It’s ok, to wander where you wanna go
It’s ok, to move fast or take it slow
It’s ok, don’t make me feel
Like I am trapped inside this wheel no

It’s ok, to be certain, never know
It’s ok, following the windy road
It’s ok, to learn as you go

It’s ok, to fall down and get back up
It’s ok, to get all twisted up
It’s ok, yeah, to live forever young
No longer be the animal
Caged and all alone

It’s ok to breathe free, and take a bow
It’s O K, you can be the master now
It’s ok, you’re making a spark
So cast these shackles, into the dark its…
Track Name: I Bet You Know
It’s been a long time
Since I left you
And all your bold lies

And I want some
Want something real
I bet you know better
Than anyone how I feel

Yeah
I bet you know…

The pain we love
Has now put us through
Everything we never wanted to do, oh

Now it’s midnight
And you’re a lonely girl
I must appease the darkness we unfurl

Darling you know
Yeah eee yeah
I bet you know
Better than anyone…

Mama, papa said a long time coming
Run that road, reap what you sow now
Mama, papa said a long time coming
Ragged, and bound, and sold, so cold now

I bet you know…
Track Name: In Or Out
Can’t, burn, hot
The latter

Climb, fall, down
The fire

Dance, scream, shout
The funeral

Grab my hand
And treat me like a criminal

Hook, beat, back
My mother’s

Dig, run, stack
The papers

Where, go, hide
The gold,

Stick with me
You’ll become
Wild, yeah…

Shot, lace-less girl
She’s ready

Sharp, piston valves
Are steady

Big, dangerous load
Is coming

And I ain’t running, no, whoa, oh, oh, oh

I live to feel the atmosphere
I live to get away from here
My mind is yelling at me now
Are you coming, are you out?
Track Name: She's A Little
Mary Ann knows, when she talks, she’s a little
Mary Ann knows, when she walks, she’s a little
Mary Ann don’t, turn me out again,
That strong blooded woman, gonna do me in yeah

She said, baby, better wrap me in cashmere
I want new shoes, and a box at the theater

Venice, France, London,
Solid gold fountain
Say you want me boy, gotta give me something

Diamonds, sapphires, a ring to match,
Hear those Weitzman’s, a clickety-clack

When she looks at me, I can’t help myself
Mary Ann, go look at someone else oh…

Please darling, go look somewhere else

Fine wine, foie gras
Personal bodyguards
Cocaine, nose job
Third house, caviar

Big yacht parties, and luxury cars
Playing this stage, just won’t get me that far

I’m just a man who’s in love with you,
Guess I must keep up, or someday I’ll lose

Everybody’s wondering, oh where’s that line
Just kiss me baby, and we’ll be just fine
Mary Ann knows…

And all my friends tell me, that I should let her go
But she’s a little, awwh, I shouldn’t let you know

Cause if you know, what I know
When lights go off tonight,
She’s a lot more than a little,
And she’ll give with all her might, yeah yeah, yeah
Track Name: The Way You Used To
Baby…

Why don’t you, look at, me,
The way you used to

Last night I was
Told you were seen
With a dark tall lover
Who was different than me

I came home tired
Waiting for your touch
Arrived in the morning
But you couldn’t look up, now

We fight, we yell
Tears, apologies
Honey how could you
Mess’ around on me

Don’t need a name
Or where you’ve been
Just look at me
Tell me why ain’t I him, oh,

Baby…

Why don’t you,
Look at me the way…

The way we sweat, and the way we burn
The words we say, the pain we learn
6 long years, now where’s it gone
Feel like I don’t know you anymore

Someone will do you
Like you’ve done me
Some night you’re waiting
Trying not to scream

They’ll come through the door
With the sun, and light
And you’ll ask them
When it don’t feel right, you’ll say

Baby…

Why don’t you look at me
The way you used to…
Track Name: Give It To Me Now
The worst part of every story
Is when the love is gone

Respect the laws of desire they told me
But I could not stop your charms

It’s a deal, with the devil, I know
At the mouth of the road

I asked him once, to play me a song and
He said you it will cost you, boy, more than gold, so…

Give it to me,
Give it, give it, give it to me now

Follow the smoke, to my alley, yeah
I will warm you up

And I promise, to do what I’m told to
Yeah, from your mouth to your toes

So Baby ask whatever you want now
I won’t charge a thing

But when the time comes
I’ll call on you softly to lose yourself in me

So give it to me,
Give it, give it, give it to me now, oh…
Track Name: Fast Train
Full
Armed with steam and coal
Laws
Can’t hold me down
Cause I’m steel king
Coming through the middle of your town, hey

Speed
Leads me deep into the hearts of men
I’ll take all that come to see
Blood,
Is paid for every inch this wheel spins
But not a drop from me, no…

Because the sun will die
I must move the big supply, oh
Hurry up, Hurry on some more
There a trapdoor, I should be looking for

The fire takes us down, til the tracks
Lead us back around, oh
Can’t help but hear the sound
I know you, can’t
And here I am
From your own hand, oh….





Steam…yeah
The fever takes control of me
Black, white and grey

Someday the burn will stop
Where you gonna be
When the hammer drops, yeah

Because the sun will die
I must move the big supply, oh
Hurry up, Hurry on some more
There a trapdoor,
I should be looking for

Someday my skin will rust
But you’ll build another one of us
Can’t help but wonder when
I know you, can’t
And here I am
From your own hand, oh….
Track Name: Quicksand Man
Seems like it’s been a long time coming
But you think this is some, cruel, joke
Seems like it’s been a long time coming

Seems like it’s been a long time coming
Can’t jump, or maybe, you, won’t
Seems like it’s been a long time coming

Let me tell ya
I’m good and ready
Let’s play the game now
While my blood is burning

Seems like it’s been a long time coming
That kiss, won’t leave, your, mind
Seems like it’s been a long time coming
You’re too close, so now you’re mine

Seems like you got a problem don’t ya
Quicksand, with a velvet touch
Seems like you took bite and now ya
You need this love

Seems like you got a problem don’t ya
Seems like you got a problem don’t ya
Seems like you got a problem darling
Seems like you got a problem…

Seems like it’s been a long time coming
Seems like it’s been a long, long time
Seems like you found the quicksand darling
And now you’re mine

Seems like it’s been a long time coming
Seems like it’s been a long, long time
Seems like it’s been a long time darling
Track Name: Midnight Road
Lead my hands
To the big scythe now
I still feel, your
Your flesh in my palm

And warmer, like steel in the field
The sun dancing on the metal
But the workers are gone,
I know the workers are gone

They’re all gone…

Hear the groan, of my aching bones
All these visitors walk by, but they don’t know
No, they don’t know
Where this road goes

As the night drops it’s dusty eyes
I hear the wings of the north
I see the trees by the river
They’re all shivering cause they know

When the wind slowly whistles low
Someone’s walking the midnight road

I hear someone…

I said, one day I was, was, was a-heading,
And I heard that wind howl, how, but I made it
To a dirt road that took, oh…

Took all my might and strength
Cause I know, I know
That something was, was
Was a little strange about
The shadows I saw

And I heard that wind whistle low
On that midnight road…













Say, one day I was, was,
Was a-heading
And I heard that wind howl
How, but I made it
To a dirt road that took
Took something from me

And I left that field
Picked up my soul

I heard that wind, wind
Wind, coming for me
But I played those strings down
Loud by the river

Now trees, they all, all, all, all shiver now,
Shiver cause they know

When the wind slowly whistles low
Someone’s on that midnight road…
