about

Joan Bishop Washington, D.C.

Through tricked out electronics, dramatic vocals, visual theatrics and glam-quirk playfulness, she's moving through the musical theater shadows into the technicolor thrill that is the pioneering hallmark of avant-garde electronic pop. A self made alternative reality in music, vision and soul. ... more

Track Name: My Life
Hopscotching discotheques
It's 2 A.M. I've lost my bet on you, coming to meet me.
Good luck, I couldn't care less I'm leaving town,
Seeing what life is all about.
I'm breaking free from you... It's a

New day I'm living now.
Having faith to do without
Flying solo, dropped the weight
My life won't be cheated.
My life, my life, my life...

Clock chimes it's 6 A.M.
Head buzzed at work again, I'm so sorry to be here.
Good luck, go answer your own phone- ain't my style
I gotta take off with dreams worth while.
Better start believing... yes sir, yes sir, yes sir.

Too many times, I've prayed 'till four.
Thinking of noting I want more than to follow all my
Childhood fantasies and play.

New day I'm living now.
Having faith to do without
Flying solo, dropped the weight
My life won't be cheated.
My life, my life, my life...
Track Name: Fly
Once, on a rocky little shore,
In a wooden little nest,
lived a bird for so long.
Then, on a fateful little night,
With belief nowhere in sight
Lightning struck while God sang:

Fly, fly away see all that you can.
Take, take the days before they turn to sand.
You were made to soar through the highest mountain top.
Spread your wings, with a leap,
Take the sky.

Now on a dustly little road,
In a trodden little house,
Lived a girl for so long.
Track Name: Far Cry
I never thought that being me could keep you far away.
Or looked upon so strangely I could hear you all debate.
If I think that life could ever be so friendly then my fears need to escape.
So as it come to me and you,
Outsider is the only game we play.

You're a far cry from heaven,
I'm a far cry from hell.
Your a far cry from sinnen',
I'm to far a cry to tell.

Stop staring in the mirror or we'll leave ourselves to blame.
Caught among the rubble leaving my thoughts lost from view.
Yes I know that you're no better how you never ever leave inside your head.
So as it come to me and you,
Outsider is the only game we play.

You're a far cry from heaven,
I'm a far cry from hell.
Your a far cry from sinnen',
I'm to far a cry to tell.

Outside: We keep our paper castles 'till they last
Outside: We pray that if we give we shall receive
Outside: We grow past broken knuckles, bloodied feet
Outside: We hide smiling proud just to deceive

You're a far cry from heaven,
I'm a far cry from hell.
Your a far cry from sinnen',
I'm to far a cry to tell.
Track Name: Stupid Guy
I caught you in the bedroom.
You're stupid and your dumb.
You simply could have told me you had someone else to love.
Those gifts that you "bought" me were her clothes that She left there,
So I got a match to light them 'cause who needs old Underwear?

Oh, Burn, burn, burn
It's someone else's turn.
You broke my heart I wanna die,
Who needs a stupid guy?

I see a shy young fellow.
He's your friend and I don't care.
I'm hot with how you treated me,
We'll see who's heart gets spared.
We danced at club cabana, dripping skin, hands out of sight.
That's when I learned your friend's no mister,
Maybe she'll turn out alright?

Oh I, never loved a girl.
Never tried all those quiet smiles.
As you are my witness now,
There's no lying, testifying,
Believe the change in me!

Burn, burn, burn
It's someone else's turn.
You broke my heart I wanna die,
Who needs a stupid guy?
Track Name: Somebody
Ain't nobody payen' no mind
Ain't nobody keepen' with time
Ain't nobody... don't you worry now.
Ain't nobody stopen' to look
Ain't nobody liven' but crooks
Ain't nobody commen'...tonight.

I remember somebody told me, people need a little more action.
I want someone who's tryen'- second glance I know you're out there.

Live baby
Breath baby
World ain't stopped spinning 'round
Fight baby
Cry baby
I'll love you when you frown
Don't be nobody be the somebody....
Somebody I want to love.

Ain't nobody cryen' but fools
Ain't nobody passen' in school
Ain't nobody... give me reason's now
Ain't nobody given' out wine
Ain't nobody given' their time
Ain't nobody touchen' the sky

Truth be told I lost me somewhere... older now a little bit tougher.
Sometimes I need somebody for me.. second glance I know you're out there.

Live baby
Breath baby
World ain't stopped spinning 'round
Fight baby
Cry baby
I'll love you when you frown
Don't be nobody be the somebody....
Somebody I want to love will

Take, the longer road
Change their human code
Stand up and be somebody counted and
Break the lazy mind
Make me want to be better for you

Live baby
Breath baby
World ain't stopped spinning 'round
Fight baby
Cry baby
I'll love you when you frown
Don't be nobody be the somebody....
Somebody I want to love.

(ad libs)

Love me!
