about

Sheldon Vance Charleston, West Virginia

I have never really considered myself a "musician" or "singer"...I am just a fan who loved music so much that simply listening wasn't enough involvement for me.

What I do may be acoustic, but it is aggressive and is put forth with every fiber of my heart and being. I just want to play...plain and simple...I honestly and humbly feel that the songs I have are worth sharing.

Track Name: Logan County Rejects(Back to the Start)
We got nowhere to go another Saturday night
Driving around in my car
Got the punk rock blasting on the stereo
Someone take me back to the start

We were the Logan County rejects, we were "Angry, Young, and Poor"
Never had a destination didn't know what we were looking for
But we'd drive all night till the morning light dreaming 'bout breaking
out
Some got lucky and we made it, and some are lying in the ground

We got nowhere to go another Saturday night
Driving around in my car
Got Social D on the stereo
Someone take me back to the start

Never had that much ambition beyond just having fun
We were all there for each other we still are when its said and done
We all went our ways, but the memories stay, as sure as the rising sun
No matter where I'm going I won't forget where I come from

We got nowhere to go another Saturday night
Driving around in my car
Got Rancid blasting the stereo
Someone take me back to the start

We set a course for a destination
Somewhere far away from here
Fought tooth and nail to break the cycle
Won't become a causality of fear

We got nowhere to go another Saturday night
Driving around in my car
Got Green Day blasting on the stereo
Someone take me back to the start

We got nowhere to go another Saturday night
Driving around in my car
Got Black Flag blasting on the stereo
Someone take me back to the start
Track Name: Watch it Burn
I've been doing this for years now and I've had my ups and downs
I've finally come full circle here with both feet on the ground
I can almost say I'm satisfied with the person I've become
Found something worth living for stopped living on the run

Take one last look around at everything that held you down

We'll leave this town burn it to the ground
Never to return, cause we've lived and learned
We'll watch it burn

I don't know where I'm going now, but I'm not staying here
I'd rather leave and take a chance than waste another year
This place is good for nothing more than Killing people's dreams
But I'll fight till my dying breath won't get the best of me

Take one last look around at everything that held you down

We'll leave this town burn it to the ground
Never to return, cause we've lived and learned
We'll watch it burn

Tried and true we've got nothing left to prove
Time to think for ourselves we'll stand our ground

We'll leave this town burn it to the ground
Never to return, cause we've lived and learned
We'll watch it burn
Track Name: Same Old Story
(Chorus)
It's true what they say some things never change,
Step back in the game and it's the same old story,
Hoping I would find "Another State of Mind",
But it's blind lead the blind it's the same old story,

(Verse1)
It's like a bad dream that won't go away,
What happened to the kids who had something to say?
What happened to the pit and singing out loud?
No one wants to risk standing out from the crowd!

(Chorus)
It's true what they say some things never change,
Step back in the game and it's the same old story,
Hoping I would find "Another State of Mind",
But it's blind lead the blind it's the same old story,

(Verse2)
I don't give a damn what style you play,
Do it from the heart mean what you say,
Forget about labels play what you feel,
I don't care what it sounds like as long as it's real!

(Chorus)
It's true what they say some things never change,
Step back in the game and it's the same old story,
Hoping I would find "Another State of Mind",
But it's blind lead the blind it's the same old story,

(Bridge)
I'm running out of hope somebody please prove me wrong,
I'm so sick and tired of hearing the same old song!

(Chorus)
It's true what they say some things never change,
Step back in the game and it's the same old story,
Hoping I would find "Another State of Mind",
But it's blind lead the blind it's the same old story,

It's the same old story again,
It's the same old story again,
It's the same old story again,
It's the same old story AGAIN!
Track Name: Don't Walk Away
It seems that we've forgotten how to dream
Lost touch with all the things that once made us believe
And I'm not sure exactly where we stand
The distance that's between us tearing down what we once had

But we were never ones to run
And in everything we've done
We've held on to our convictions
Please don't leave me here alone to face this on my own
Don't shut me out and walk away

I've spent my whole life here in this town
Left out a time or two but came right back around
And the one thing I could count on to get by
Was knowing there was someone else who felt the same inside

But we were never ones to run
And in everything we've done
We've held on to our convictions
Please don't leave me here alone to face this on my own
Don't shut me out and walk away

Don't shut me out and walk away
Don't leave me here in this place
Don't shut me out and walk away

But we were never ones to run
And in everything we've done
We've held on to our convictions
Please don't leave me here alone to face this on my own
Don't shut me out and walk away
