about

Violet Intent Boston, Massachusetts

Violet Intent began as a solo recording project by Bobby Mcdonald, something to catch songs and artistic ideas after his band the Light Machine broke up. Since then it has slowly evolved from a introverted experimental home project into an extroverted wall of rock n roll. Ya dig?

Track Name: Don't Seem to Care
Old man lying in bed and he's so scared
He's rotting from the inside out and he's so full of fear
at least he wont care anymore oh

Young lady had a baby to define her and she's so scared
Baby died while it was inside her it was her worst fear
now she don't seem to care no
Track Name: Alone in my Mind
I sit alone and wonder why
I sit alone and bide my time
I sit and I watch the stars align
I sit and drink and wonder why

Alone in my mind
Yeah, I am alone in my mind
I am alone in my mind

I sat alone and watched the sky
This one time I swear I saw a little light
I sat and I watched it as it fly
But I just can't see with all these eyes

Alone in my mind
Yeah, I am alone in my mind
I am alone in my mind

Alone in my mind
Track Name: Ghost in the Machine
Logged in, logged on, basked in the glow
Mouth open wide like I'm catching snow
Take another bite, get me to the core
Every open window is an open door

001010110 is the number on my screen
001010110 it's the ghost in the machine
It's the ghost in the machine

I'm looking for a signal amid the noise
I'm looking for an answer not just another choice
Where is my mind when I hit the switch?
What is my mind but just another glitch?

001010110 is the number on my screen
001010110 it's the ghost in the machine
It's the ghost in the machine
Track Name: Cholula
Girl i was waiting there
All your flowers didn't seem to care
Girl i was waiting there

No don't
Don't fall
Don't fall down
One more time you're gonna be let down

Cholula

That girl was lying there
From where i sat all i could see was the air
That girl was lying there
No don't
Don't fall
Don't fall down
Just one more time you're gonna be let down

Cholula

that girl was lying there.....
Track Name: Neptune Red
My brain's got a big leak, baby
Rainbow shattered memories
They empty into the street
People walk by to see me bleed out the technicolor dream
Oh, my technicolor dream

Oh my love, where have you been?
It's been so long since I belonged
Oh my love, where have you been?
It's been so long since I belonged

There's nothing wrong
Just tryin to have a little fun
I ain't tryin to hurt no one
I was born to chase the sun

Ain't right the way you treat me, baby
But your lovin feels so sweet
Then you pull back entirely
So many many people, but I'm so lonely
I'm so lonely girl
I am lonely girl

Oh my love, where have you been?
It's been so long since I belonged
Oh my love, where have you been?
It's been so long since I belonged

There's nothing wrong
Just tryin to have a little fun
I ain't tryin to hurt no one
I was born to chase the sun

There's nothing wrong
Just tryin to have a little fun
I ain't tryin to hurt no one
I was born to chase the sun
Track Name: Manic Pixie Dream Girl
If you saw my love on the street
Velvet eyes that glow blue and green
Her lips say no but there's an afterglow
And there's a rose on her thigh

And she said
If it's all the same to you
There's nothing more, nothing less to do
If it's all the same to you
She said let's get high tonight

Let's get high

If you watch this girl as she sings
She's got a long brown coat and the disco rings
Her thoughts say no but she can't let go
And there's a rose in the sky

And she said
If it's all the same to you
There's nothing more, nothing less to do
If it's all the same to you
She said let's get high tonight

Let's get high
Track Name: Convinced of the Hex
She submits as she dominates
She gets out of her head
As she talks to the ceiling
You can hear what she said
She said, "That's the difference between us
That's the difference between us
That's the difference between us
You see, that's the difference between us"

She says, "I like your theory
But it won't pass no test
Watching the watchers
Getting shot in the chest
That's the difference between us
That's the difference between us
That's the difference between us
That's the difference between us"

She says, "You think there's some system
That controls and affects
You see, I believe in nothing
And you're convinced of the hex
I believe in nothing
And you're convinced of the hex

That's the difference between us
That's the difference between us
That's the difference between us
You see, that's the difference between us"
Track Name: Noble Maggot
I was talking with an old man
Just the other day
He said that reproduction
Is the only thing that matters anyway

I guess maybe he's right
He's been here for a long time
And I guess it makes him seem wise and all
But it makes my life seem so small

The flies always leave your bones
The flies always leave your bones
The flies always leave your bones
They only eat your skin

The world will always go
Round and round again
Babies will always grow
But the flies always leave your bones

The flies always leave your bones
The flies always leave your bones
The flies always leave your bones
They only eat your skin
Track Name: Up in the Clouds
I never said a word
As the lights blinked back and forth
The megaphone declared "Climb Aboard"
I never made a sound
As the lights turned upside down
The airplanes in my head
And it's far too late for me now

So up through the clouds
A million miles up off the ground
Ooh, I can't look down
I hear them even now
They talk with pictures made of sound
But most of all the eyes
So black and so round
Track Name: Death with Benefits
They say I'm wasting my time
That what I do's not worth a dime
Well I intend
To be this until the day I die
They treat me like I'm blind
I missed some sort of warning sign
But what I have seen and I have felt is more than they will in their entire lives

Pass the judging eyes
Complete with wicked smiles
Just cause I ask why
They gotta treat me like a child
Don't put your fear on me
Just cause you gave up on life
Go whisper in your rooms go push your brooms and watch me fly high
