about

"Room16: Origins". "ROOMsixteen". "The Room16". "Floor 16"? Though I feel kind of embarrassed making these first 5 extremely rough and quite frankly out of date recordings available, we've been asked for demos or CDs on way to many occasions now so I've caved. Hopefully you've seen us live can appreciate immediately that these tracks do not in any way represent the band's current level of performance. For us this is more of a cleansing process - get the old stuff out the way so we can get some new ideas down. However, we fully intend to rework and re-record the material you hear here to a much better quality so we can present it WITH PRIDE GOD DAMNIT! For now, thank you so much for listening and for generally being awesome. Love, love, love.

released April 19, 2011

Most of the music on here is written by Andrew Gordon. Similarly, most of the lyrics are by Ewan McCall. ALL of the drum parts are the brain child of Ronan McLellan with the occasional prod of "how about this?". A lot of the bass parts are written by Kyle McLellan. A lot of this recording is a team effort. Jack Gordon provides additional guitar on these tracks but no longer plays with the band. His position has been assumed by Adam Gather who you will hopefully hear from in MP3 format in the near future.

Track Name: Rocking With Me (Old Recording)
I want you to just be my girl and hope you come a rocking with me
I want you to just be my girl and B the only thing related to T.
Sugar.
I'll be there with you if you'll be mine, I'll have two sugars all the time.
I'll be there and you can be my queen B, so you can just come a buzzing over to me
Honey.

I don't want this any more, I could see you out the door.
Babe with me you got to stand the heat, 'cause I can't stand a girl that greets.

I want you to just be my girl and hope you come a jamming with me
I really want you to just be my a girl I understand I hear you take them for free
Babe with me you got to aim to please and if that means breaking rules then go tease
You'll be starting to get I'm in demand but 'aint ever been a one man band.

I don't want this any more, I could see you out the door.
Babe with me you got to stand the heat, 'cause I can't stand a girl that greets.

Hell but when you're looking at me
Why can't you see your the one for me?
Rock my world, playground's yours
Aim to please, you're just such a tease

I don't want this any more, I could see you out the door.
Babe with me you got to stand the heat, 'cause I can't stand a girl that greets.
Track Name: Don't Mess With Sharks (Old Recording)
You don't know what you mean to me and now I'm stranded out at see
Salt water in my eyes and now I'm drowning in your lies
I don't know you any more
Morals are walking out that door
As my mind washes washes up on the shore I know just what you mean before
Babe I'm way out of my depth and you're the one I wish I kept

And I know it hurts
(I wish I'd never messed with sharks, 'cause now I'm drifting in the dark)
I wish I'd never messed with sharks, 'cause now I'm drifting in the dark

I've been tossed right overboard that's the last time I'll be ignored
Sun is setting on the sea that's the last time you'll hear from me
My mind washed on the shore I know just what you meant before

And I know it hurts
(I wish I'd never messed with sharks, 'cause now I'm drifting in the dark)
I never though I'd mess with sharks, 'cause now I'm drifting in the dark

And I know it hurts
And baby I know, if you're my door

I don't know you any more
Morals are walking out that door
I never mess with sharks, 'cause now I'm drifting in the dark
Sun is setting on the sea that's the last time you'll hear from me

Last time you'll hear
Track Name: Make Yourself Clear (Old Recording)
Wherever my life will go, there'll be people I'll never know
I've just got to get away from here
Whenever you want me near, just discover your mind is clear
Just remember I won't go running back to you

I wish that things could be simple, that you could just make yourself clear
You like to make things a mystery baby but I know I haven't felt that way in years
In the meantime we had our good times, it wasn't wasted
But do really remember me at all

Maybe you're just as confused as me
But I doubt it babe just set my mind free

All of you are the same don't pretend that you're not, don't pretend that you're not
It's just your little game, you're in control - at least that's the way I see
Or maybe it's all in my head, a trail of false hopes
You've gone and lead into thinking something that wasn't
me

Sometimes I wonder what I thought about, what I was meant to say
You didn't have to make it so complicated, decisions are so hard to make anyway
In the meantime we had our good times, it wasn't wasted
But do really remember me at all

Maybe you're just as confused as me
But I doubt it babe just set my mind free

All of you are the same don't pretend that you're not, don't pretend that you're not
It's just your little game, you're in control - at least that's the way I see
Or maybe it's all in my head, a trail of false hopes
You've gone and lead into thinking something that wasn't
me

You left me running when you call
With my back against the wall
But maybe everything was fine and I still want to make you mine
I'll love you gently take my arm
and then I'll leave you alone.
Track Name: Rat Arsed (Old Recording)
