Playing Emo’s Thursday July 17th, Tilly and the Wall with Belaire and Ringo Deathstarr.
Biography from Wikipedia: Tilly and the Wall is an indie pop group from Omaha, Nebraska. They are particularly noted for having a tap dancer, Jamie Pressnall, instead of a drummer. The group formed in 2001 after the demise of several Omaha groups, including Conor Oberst’s Park Ave., of which Neely Jenkins and Jamie Pressnall (then Jamie Williams) were members. Their first show was an open-mic night at the now defunct Ranch Bowl. Their first release, Woo!, was recorded in Conor Oberst’s garage, self-published, and distributed at shows around the Omaha area.

Tilly and the Wall Lost Girls Lyrics
Girl, I know the hall looks dark
and the storm it seems so scary.
Your face lit up on beats of lightning.
You start, you start running.
And your eyes are like screaming.
And since there is no end and no beginning, you will run.
Girl, I know the woods look dark
and the trees they seem so deadly.
The girls around you are so frightened,
You start, you start to panic.
And your courage starts to vanish.
And the world it really is on fire.
And it burns. It burns. It burns.
Vivian, your life is told through 19 thousand pages
in a world too unreal to behold.
Your innocence has faded.
Faded all your blues to gray.
Your skin has bruised through moving days.
Glue is peeling back away.
Curling. Cracking. Painted.
Girl you’ve been rolled up in colorful carpets.
Your blood is rushing, look around you.
You’re froze, you’re frozen quiet.
And your eyes they are widened
Room unfurnished, no light for nightfall.
Just rugs for rolling you up.
You know you can’t get up.
When you do, you swear you will run.
You will run. You will run. You will run.
No one will ever save you if no one can ever find you.
Lost girls. Lost girls. Lost girls.
(Girl I know the hall looks dark when you’re all alone.)
