about

In the summer of 2011, Foxxhound recorded their second full-length album titled ‘Carousel’. It was recorded in four days at Scott Silletta’s living room in Orange, CA. It was mixed by Jon O’Brien. The album’s recording process was inspired by The White Stripes 2001 album, ‘White Blood Cells’. The idea was to capture Foxxhound's live sound without a lot of editing, overdubs, or numerous takes.

Track Name: Love Don't You Forget About Me
Verse 1
My heart’s about to burst, I wanta exonerate the hurt
Cause there are so many, so many ways to feel alone, and I would know
Casualties of drunken revelries, how they turn into Sunday morn
Giving her all my might on a lonely Saturday night

Chorus 1
So love please, don’t you forget about me
Oh love, don’t you forget about me
Oh love, please forgive me

Verse 2
A girl named Alex told me once, what’s the point in hanging on
When this world that we live in is so full of wrong
I told her “love is the reason, it’s the greatest healer
It can turn an atheist into a believer”
Cause for so long I tried to deny its existence, I was a fool

Chorus 2
So love please, don’t you forget about me
Oh love, don’t you forget about me
Oh love, please forgive me

Bridge
I’ve been trying my whole wretched life
Only to find to my surprise, you’re the reason why oh why…

Verse 3
My heart’s about to burst, I wanta exonerate the heart
Cause there are so many, so many ways to feel alone, and I would know
Casualties of drunken revelries, how they turn into Sunday morn
Giving her all my might on a lonely Saturday night

Chorus 3
So love please, don’t you forget about me
Oh love, don’t you forget about me
Oh love, please forgive me
Track Name: When You Wish Upon A Bar
Verse 1
I work hard every day, just to take care of my babe
And make this house into a home
But at night I sometimes roam, as I take the long way home

Pre Chorus 1
Cause I've been upon a star wishing
My nights away in a dreamers daze, until I met you

Chorus 1
That's why I'm crazy for you
That's why I'd do anything for you
Yes I'm so crazy for you
That's why I'd do anything for you

Verse 2
All these girl and their tattoos, all dressed up in attitude
They love it when I make em’ laugh and scream
But you're the one I'll sing to sleep
Yes I will hold you while you dream

Pre-Chorus 2
Cause I've been upon a bar drinking,
My days away in a drunken haze, until I met you

Chorus 2
That's why I'm crazy for you
That's why I'd do anything for you

Bridge / Outro
You're my truth and resolution, in a world full of delusion
Don't know what I would do without you
Don't know what I would do cause I love you
Track Name: Home
Verse 1
When I was a little, my mama said, I was too sensitive
That’s why she cried all the time
But oh how I’ve grown, into this charming man
With all these charming plans
Cause no one wants to be alone, so I will stick with what I know

Chorus 1
Drinking, singing with my friends, writing songs till 3am
Forgive me Ma’, it’s all I ever wanted to be
I need someone to take my hand, show me that they understand
I don’t mind dying trying to find my own way home

Verse 2
All of my life I’ve been a lonely man, that's why I always ran
From those I should have loved
So I took all that pain and put it in six strings
And let those holy chords sing the truth
That’s all I’ve ever hoped to do, and that’s why I am here with you

Chorus 2
Drinking, singing with my friends, writing songs till 3am
Forgive me Ma’, it’s all I ever wanted to be
I need someone to touch my soul, to be a rock and fit the role
I don’t mind dying trying to find my own way home

Bridge/Outro
So are you going to come outside and play?
Cause I don’t wanta go home, no I don’t wanta go home…
I just wanta go home …
Track Name: Ain't That A Shame
Verse 1
That night was wild, like a child you told me things with such innocence.
To hold you, and scold you, and love you in the morning’s light

Pre Chorus 1
All in my head, left for dead, like a wounded wolf without a pack
I’d take you, then break you, cause that’s what you loved about me

Chorus 1
It’s such a shame, to throw it all away
Tell me what do you do when there’s no one but you left to blame

Verse 2
All your girlfriends know, your boyfriend knows I’m the one, son of a gun
Who shot where you thought you were bullet proof

Pre Chorus 2
We were sleeping in my bed, left for dead, like a beautiful and fleeting dream
I’d take you, then break you cause that’s what you loved about me

Chorus 2
It’s such a shame, to throw it all away
Tell me what do you do when there’s no one but you left to blame

Bridge
In my darkest thoughts I’d hold you tight to the light
But you’d rather be comfortably dying, and I just don’t think you see
Just how beautiful you are to me

Outro
All my loving, all my kissing, you don’t know what you’ll be missing
Oh girl oh girl, ooh wee…And I just don’t think you see
Track Name: Seams
Chorus 1
I’m holding on so it seems, I come undone at the seams
I carry on so it seems, I’m holding on at the seams

Verse 1
Like Lennie “Of Mice and Men”, I am doing the best I can
I keep rolling on, like a chain gang song, even when…

Chorus 2
I’m holding on so it seems, I come undone at the seams
I carry on so it seems, I’m holding on at the seams

Verse 2
When I was lost, cold and alone
Your love warmed me to my bones
As the moon shall rise, you ignite my nights, with lavender skies
Even when…

Chorus 3
I’m holding on so it seems, I come undone at the seams
I carry on so it seems, I’m holding on at the seams
Track Name: Run For Cover Girl
Verse 1
Aren't you tired of always running, from something or someone?
You text me that everything is going great, so why then are you acting so strange
I heard you quit your job then skipped out on rent
You moved back home now on unemployment
Just like your dad, well ain't that grand

Pre Chorus 1
You may hate me when you hear this song
But aren't you're the one who said to your only friend, “so long”?

Verse 2
Why did you leave her stranded and alone?
When you're the one that she called 'home'
Maybe the real world just got too damn hard
Or you figured girl power only goes so far
Just like your mom, so sing along

Chorus 1
So, so long and goodbye

Pre Chorus 2
You may hate me when you hear this song
You may say to me "fuck off"
But aren't you the one who said to your only true friend, “so long”?

Bridge
You're such a pretty girl, so run for cover girl, such a clever girl
That you've fooled all of your friends, oh except her
Yeah you've fooled everyone, except yourself

Chorus 2
So, so long and goodbye
Track Name: Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
Verse 1
Lying in my bed I can still smell your scent on my sheets and that’s what’s killing me
We always made each other laugh, my best friend and more you were that
Until I found out that the joke was on me
I wanted to write love songs in your name instead you’re the one who carries the shame
Who lost at the cheaters game

Chorus 1
Tell me baby, tell me darlin’, where did you sleep last night?
Tell me baby, tell me darlin’, remember when I held you tight?

Verse 2
I kept my feelings close to my chest because of situations just like this
You always wondered why, well now you know
Cause to truly found what’s natural and real
Like a blooming flower takes time to be revealed
So you can say I just had bad timing or I could say you were a selfish bitch
Go on baby girl and take your pick

Chorus 2
Tell me baby, tell me darlin’, where did you sleep last night?
Tell me baby, tell me darlin’, remember when I held you tight?
Tell me baby, tell me darlin’, how do you sleep at night?
Track Name: Carousel
Verse 1
Build me up, knock me down with that old feeling
When we used to believe that loves all you need
So hoist me up, smack me around like a drunken clown
Waiting for his queue to perform for you
Look at us now, look at us now

Chorus 1
I just wanta feel love again
And look back on the ways of settling
When we kiss goodnight, it feels like a chore and a bore
And the way that we fight ain't fun anymore

Verse 2
The scratches that you used to leave on my chest
Showing the world he is mine don't you dare contest
Well you know I love you, you know that I do, baby please
You know I love you but right now I just wanta leave
Look at me now, look at me now

Chorus 2
I just wanta feel love again
And look back on the ways of settling
When we kiss goodnight, it feels like a chore and a bore
And the way that we fight ain't fun anymore
Yes the way that we fight ain’t fun anymore

Bridge
I'm bored to death
Day after day, again and again and again

Outro
Spinning round and around on this carousel
Once was our amusement, now it’s a living hell
Get me off
Track Name: Sinking Treasures
Verse 1
Seems like it’s only getting harder to find some sincerity
Amongst these grifters, ironic hipsters, their silver spoons and their plastic plates
I can see the delta waters rising, selfishness has temporally blinded
Us to the fact, that you and I we’re not all that, special, but we are all unique

Pre Chorus 1
Are we going down or are we going to grow up?
You’re taking too long

Chorus 1
So as they chart the course on this sinking ship, destination who gives a shit
My heart is aching, the world is breaking and all I keep saying
Hurry up, baby please, hurry up, I’m begging you, hurry up, and make up your mind
Are you going down with the ship, baby, are we going down is this it?
Are we going down or are we going to grow up?

Verse 2
Seems like it’s only getting harder to find a little honesty
Amongst these whores, thieves and the forgotten
Well they’re just called friends to me
I can see the muddy waters rising, self-delusion has temporally blinded
Us to the fact, that you and I we’re not all that special, yeah we’re all the same

Pre Chorus 2
So are we going down?

Chorus 2
As they steady the course on this sinking ship, destination who gives a shit
My heart is aching, the world is breaking and I keep screaming
Hurry up, baby please, hurry up, I’m begging you hurry up and make up your mind
Are you going down with the ship, are we going down, is this it?
Are we going down or are we going to grow up?

Seems like it’s only getting harder to find some sincerity
