about

"Catchy, upbeat melodies with thrashing guitar and intense percussion weave in with lyrics that aren’t just there for lyrics’ sake. These ladies are opinionated, bold, and brassy. This song [LEMON] is sour and twisted."
-Meredith Schneider, IMPOSE
www.imposemagazine.com/bytes/new-music/the-meltaways-lemon

"Their self-titled release thrust the influence of riot-grrrl music from the 90s sharply into the complacent face of the present. Via a recording that sounded like an explosive basement fury channelled into a collective of musical positivity, the trio presented combustible levels of attitude within their socio-political bursts of noise."

Track Name: Jaded
What you say and what you do won't make your life for you
Call her all your names, call her what you will
There's nothing she won't say or do to make her want to kill
She's chasing demons every day inside her head
There's nothing she won't say or do to make her think she might be dead
Track Name: Lemon
I'm hiding from your UV rays
I know I'm not the daughter that you wanted
The sidewalk burns, tiptoe ahead
Don't try to hold my hand, I'll never like it
When you become so sour like a lemon, learn some lessons
Take what you deserve, and
You'll never question. Never knew how much I could take.
Don't ever know how much I can take
Does that make sense? This pain won't end
You ruined it. Now I'll hurt them
These are the visions in my head
These days honesty is just a picture, and
Passing time leads to dread
Don't wanna feel this way, but I can't help it
You'll never know how it burned worse than when he left us
And when we fight, it burns like a Roman candle
Never knew how much I could take, I held it in only for your sake
Track Name: Ice Cubes
I saw her face so clear, it was a guiding light. Whose hands will you find drifting through the night?
Now the house is dark, and the TV's on. Your mind is numbing out rooted to the couch
I knew it from the start, you'd leave us in the dark
Now the house is dark, with the TV on, head is tilted back, ice cubes in a glass
With the TV on, you're always restless now. Final resting place rooted to the couch
Track Name: Circles
Wake up on my feet, I don't get no more sleep, and I don't get
You make me feel alive (just wanna stay), you make me feel deprived (with you all day)
You took me for a ride (don't wanna stay), now drop me off inside (with you)
Nothing for me out here all goddamn day, and I don't get
You make me feel alive (just wanna stay), you make me feel deprived (with you all day)
You took me for a ride (don't wanna stay), now drop me off inside
I'm done with you
Track Name: Pacify
Seen just what you do, walk without a clue.
Take these shoes of mine, you're way out of line
It's all a lie, pacify
Don't got much to say, you're not listening anyway
Don't think about what's right, I'm done with being polite
You won't pacify me
You won't
Track Name: Shoot
An uncontested killing spree, not a murder of misogyny
Not all men can see the sickness of our society
Not all men can see, yes all women agree
Sickness of our society
Track Name: Possession
Spit in your face, I'll spill your blood, I'm no possession
I don't belong to anyone cuz things aren't what they were before
I'm no belonging, you don't possess me anymore
Spit in your face, I'll spill your blood, I'm no possession
Don't know how things ever got this way
When I made a resolution to free myself. Then burned it to the ground
Wanna make a resolution to free ourselves from anybody else
I'll spill your blood, I'm no possession
I don't belong to anyone cuz things aren't what they were before
I'm no belonging, you don't possess me anymore
Can't stand anything about you, I regret the time I spent around you
