Product Notes

Tom Hauck began his music career as a founding member of the Atlantics, one of Boston's seminal punk/pop bands in the late 1970s. Following their appearances with the Ramones at The Club in Cambridge in May 1976, The Atlantics built up a following in Boston and New York, playing at CBGB and Max's Kansas City, and were signed to ABC Records in 1978. The following year their album "Big City Rock" was released, and then in 1980 the band recorded Tom's song "Lonelyhearts," which rocketed to the top of the New England radio charts. In 1983 Tom and Bruce Wilkinson formed the dance/synth group Ball and Pivot, which scored the MTV and V-66 smash hit "Down." In 1988 Tom founded the Spanish-language rock group TDCO with singer and film director Luis Aira. Tom left the music business in 1990 and devoted his time to his family. In 2004 he spearheaded the digital re-release of the Atlantics and Ball and Pivot catalogues, and began playing solo gigs around his home town of Gloucester, including an appearance at the Rockport Acoustic Music Festival. In 2010 Tom appeared with ex-Atlantics guitarist Fred Pineau and the Big City Rockers at the House of Blues in Boston, where they played a set of Atlantic songs. Tom began his solo recording career in 2011 with the release of his first full length CD, 'Pistonhead.' His second CD 'Afterlife' was recorded at Bang a Song Studios in Gloucester, MA USA. Tom plays all of the instruments except bass guitar, which was expertly handled by co-producer and studio owner Tony Goddess. LYRICS Words and Music ? 2013 Thomas Hauck / Olex Music (ASCAP) Tomorrow's Gonna Be a Better Day Tomorrow's gonna be a better day Tomorrow's gonna be a better day Tomorrow's gonna be a better day Tomorrow's gonna be a better day The road is long and I have lost my way Can you feel it comin'? Can you feel it comin'? My love is strong although I'm torn and frayed Nothing lasts forever man has made Tomorrow's gonna be a better day Frankenstein I got a pacemaker in my chest, a metal plate in my head My teeth look real but they're plastic bits, got a rod stuck in my leg I'm Frankenstein and I love to see you move me I'm a junkyard valentine and you'll be the one to school me I'm Frankenstein, can't you hear me howling I'm running out of time on the road to wrack and ruin Stiff and sore I walk the road, watching out for a bigger bang My feet are armored piercing treads, from my head the wires hang I got a laser guided eye, I'm rusty and I'm greasy Just plug me into your circuit box, baby don't you try to stop me I'm Frankenstein and I love to see you move me I'm a junkyard valentine and you'll be the one to school me I'm Frankenstein, can't you hear me howling I'm running out of time on the road to wrack and ruin Flash Where it started no one's really certain about Messages are flying at the speed of light A single thought begins to crystallize in my mind Multiplied by thousands like a sign in the sky It's a flash bringing us together as one We can hear a million voices harmonize We can feel how we move in perfect unity It's a flash a shining moment in our lives See it move across the sky Got no time to wonder why Can't be stopped by mountain sides Hold your head up feel the pride Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah Thunderbolts in Paris, London, New York, Beijing A common realization of a new attitude From Tripoli, Damascus, even Washington DC Generating energy expanding our view It's a flash bringing us together as one We can hear a million voices harmonize We can feel how we move in perfect unity It's a flash a shining moment in our lives See it move across the sky Got no time to wonder why Can't be stopped by mountain sides Hold your head up feel the pride Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah My Baby My baby gives me everything My baby lifts me when I'm down My baby mends my broken heart My baby keeps me on the ground I know that I'm gonna be all right When the stars collide and the rivers rise She's by my side at the end of time Yeah yeah yeah yeah My baby knows just what I want A simple fact and that's for sure Too many reasons to ignore And then she leaves me wanting more My baby covers me with kisses And then she sends me on my way Into the night when dogs are howling And then I come back torn and frayed I know that I'm gonna be all right When the stars collide and the rivers rise She's by my side at the end of time Yeah yeah yeah yeah My baby never makes me pay But don't I know it that she could I'm gonna give her what I got She's gonna give it to me good My baby tells me all her secrets And she can read me like a book There's nothing I could ever hide There ain't no place she wouldn't look I know that I'm gonna be all right When the stars collide and the rivers rise She's by my side at the end of time Yeah yeah yeah yeah Fakin It She's fakin' it till she makes it, she's fakin' it till she makes it She's fakin' it till she makes it, she's fakin' it till she makes it She's fakin' it till she makes it, she's fakin' it till she makes it She's fakin' it till she makes it, she's fakin' it till she makes it Don't you come around here, telling your same old gits I'm tired of hearing your lies, and tired of taking the hits Too many pills and too many nights hooking up and heading down Passed around and passing out, wearing that plastic wedding gown That's right, that's the way it is, that's the way it is Everything's gonna be alright when you get straightened out Make yourself a brand new start and lock up all your doubts She's fakin' it till she makes it, she's fakin' it till she makes it I sleep on the sofa, tossin through the night You come in at daylight, you ain't talkin' right Ain't your business baby is what you say to me I got my own damn money to pay for privacy That's right, that's the way it is, that's the way it is Everything's gonna be alright when you get straightened out Make yourself a brand new start and lock up all your doubts Everybody's Got to Go Everybody's got to go one way or another You can take it slow or go in a flash of thunder You can die in bed at night with your family gathered round You can go in a burst of light as the angels trumpet sounds Everybody's got to go one way or another You can take it slow or go in a flash of thunder You can drive right off a cliff into the great abyss Or suck on down a poison spliff and rise in a purple mist Everybody's got to go one way or another You can take it slow or go in a flash of thunder You'll meet mister D one day just walking in the park He will greet you with a smile before your eyes go dark Lord now won't you let me go into my lover's arms Underneath the apple tree I'll surrender to her charms Everybody's got to go one way or another You can take it slow or go in a flash of thunder Bang Yer Head Bang yer head, bust your brain, open up yer eyes Bang yer head, bust yer brain, don't believe the lies Confusion fills my brain - am I up or going down? I fly up to the sun and crash back to the ground All those times that I've tried to make a dollar from a dime They don't seem to make much difference when I'm trying one more time Bang yer head, bust yer brain, open up your eyes Bang yer head, bust yer brain, don't believe the lies See mountains turn to sand and twisting rivers rise Hear thunder in the hills and music in the skies Break another way down through the deadly maze Nothing old can help us, we can't go astray Bang yer head, bust yer brain, open up yer eyes Bang yer head, bust yer brain, don't believe the lies Explode your view into a million little pieces Chew them spit them out into the universe See the children in a row Teacher knows not where to go Will the world just pass you by Never know the reason why Take these shattered fragments, make them something new Make them something strange and wonderful and true Bang yer head, Yeah yeah yeah Bust yer brain, Yeah yeah yeah Explode your view into a million little pieces Chew them spit them out into the universe Bang, bang, bang yer head Bang, bang, bang yer head Bang, bang, bang yer head Rosie the Rocket Rosie the Rocket, runnin all over town Got the world in her pocket, nothing gets her down Look at her go, go, go - look at her go, go, go Look at her go, go, go - look at her go, go, go Don't you break my heart again, no don't you break my heart Don't you break my heart again, no don't you break my heart If you ask her any question oh yeah She'll say love is the answer oh yeah She's free - free as the wind She's free - free as the wind, as the wind.
