Simply put...The Black Tones are like a mixture of Kurt Cobain and cornbread.
Consisting of founders/twin siblings Eva Walker on guitar/vocals and Cedric Walker on drums, the blues- and punk-based dynamo continuously project subversion, power and the potential for something new on stage. ... more

Track Name: Ghetto Spaceship
Don’t you want me baby
Don’t you want me too
Don’t you want me baby
Because I want you

You want your feet off the ground
Well I can take them around
You wanna ride on through
My ghetto spaceship for two
You wanna ride on through
My ghetto spaceship for two

Don’t you want me baby
Don’t you want me too
Don’t you want me baby
Because I want you

Don’t go and bringing me down
While I go making my rounds
They wanna ride on through
My ghetto spaceship for two
They wanna ride on through
My ghetto spaceship for two (yeah)

Don’t you want me baby
Don’t you want me baby
Don’t you want me baby
Don’t you want me baby
Don’t you want me baby
Don’t you want me baby
Don’t you want me baby
Track Name: The Key of Black (They Want us Dead)
We want love
They want us dead
We want peace
They want us dead
We want to go to school
They want us dead
We pay our taxes
They want us dead
We love our families
They want us dead
We want to go to work
They want us dead
We want to make love
They want us dead
And we love you
But they want us dead
Track Name: Mama! There's a Spider in My Room
Mama! There’s a spider in my room
I said, Mama! There’s a spider in my room
He said “Hey girl, why you still in bed?”
“I’m gonna bite you real good, until you’re dead.”
I said, “I live here man! Who are you Mr. Spider?”
He said, “Hush up girl! And hold my hand.”

So I yelled
Mama! There’s a spider in my room
I said, Mama! There’s a spider in my room

He said, “Quit screaming girl! You gonna give me a headache”
“I’m gonna crawl up and down you, girl I’ll make you shake!”
I said, “Stop! I just wanna go to bed”
He said, “girl you ain’t going to bed, until you meet your judgment day!”

So I screamed
Mama! There’s a spider in my room
I said, Mama! There’s a spider in my room

Daddy came home
He said, “Girl why you still awake?”
I said, “Daddy there’s a spider trying to kill me! And put me in my grave!”
He said, “Girl you crazy! Go on to bed”
I said, “Daddy you just lazy! Kill that damn spider dead!”

So I said
Mama, there’s a spider in my room
I said, Mama there’s a spider in my room

Mama!
Mama!
Mama!
Mama!

Track Name: Rivers of Jordan
I’m gonna cross the rivers of Jordan
I’m gonna cross the rivers of Jordan
One of these days, Hallelujah
I’m gonna cross the rivers of Jordan
I’m gonna cross the rivers of Jordan one of these days

I’m gonna meet my mother in glory
I’m gonna meet my mother in glory
One of these days, Hallelujah
I’m gonna meet my mother in glory
I’m gonna meet my mother in glory one of these days

I’m gonna tell her how you treat me
I’m gonna tell her how you treat me
One of these days, Hallelujah
I’m gonna tell her how you treat me
I’m gonna tell her how you treat me one of these days

I’m gonna cross the rivers of Jordan
I’m gonna cross the rivers of Jordan
One of these days, Hallelujah
Track Name: Plaid Pants
My boy is tall glasses and all
Block head in a queen size bed and he walks
He’s got his plaid pants on

Long legs they start at his head
Strong hands oh what a man
Southern belle and voodoo spells
It can’t be said when your friends are all dead, ooh

He’s got his plaid pants on
Ah ya ya ya, ya ya

My girl is lean christian it seems
Kitchen bound when you need her around and she walks
She’s got her plaid pants on

Talking strong even when she’s wrong
Hold you tight and stay up all night
Southern belle and voodoo spells
It can’t be said ‘cause her friends are all dead, ooh ooh

She’s got her plaid pants on
Ah ya ya ya, ya ya yeah

(Ooohs and aahs)
1-2-3-4

Save your name and picture frames
Your country’s fright, but your moving alright
Southern belle and voodoo spells
It can’t be said ‘cause our friends are all dead ooh
They got their plaid pants on
Ah ya ya ya, ya ya yeah
Track Name: Striped Walls
Striped walls, you’re 10 feet tall
Long and lean, oh you look so mean

Switching places bouncing up and down
And round and round
Itching faces, mind’s a blazing
You make me feel like I’m downtown

Oooh ooh

Two chords for two colors
Don’t lose it’s touch
Feeling happy feeling lousy it makes you feel like you’re
downtown
Track Name: Welcome Mr. Pink
Hello, hi there
They call me Mr. Pink
And I’m so crazy

I live alone with my shadows
Sometimes they laugh and point
And call me crazy

Can’t read, can’t write
Friends are for the weak
Who needs hugs
When you’re crazy

Lights on, lights off
Lights on and back off
Lights on this shit
Is crazy

Roses are red and
Violets are blue
But I’m Mr. Pink
And so are, crazy
