about

George Glass Los Angeles, California

George Glass is a band from Los Angeles. George Glass is Nicholas Ceglio, Nathan Kondor, and Peter DiBiasio.
Nick is a true American success story. Just last month he was a hobo, sleeping on couches and in storage closets. Contrary to appearances, Peter is a twelve-year-old bass-playing dynamo. He's just got the Benjamin Button disease or something. Nathan rides bears and eagles.

Track Name: Operative Me
OPERATIVE ME

if they notice be discreet about it
not enough to lose to worry bout it
that is until word gets out about it
another harmful word to spare about it
wasted on those who can do without it
if they want the truth tell em all about it

what you do when  you're on your own
better to keep it left unknown

you report when they won't talk about it
better off than you might care to admit
nothing left to do, write a song about it
tell em all about it

what you do when you're on your own
better to keep it left unknown
you seem surprised
serves you right
Track Name: Don't Try
DON'T TRY

what seems like a lifetime ago, long before you or i made opinion from breath
we were a couple of kids in a knock-around crowd with a hunger for why
as selfish as one would become, still the other relied on the opposite end
then we created the one thing to bridge up the difference so we would commence
and we didn't even think to try

you know the odds are uneven whenever expecting a thing from my time
i've never been one for figuring into equations an empathy line
its always easier to separate inconveniently parallel ends
and you assume now that i've pinioned my patterns down we'll be free to commence
but i wouldn't even dare to try
Track Name: Metro Hymn
METRO HYMN

on my feet
most of me
no one knows
no ride home
do you mind 
my x-ray eyes
now it shows
no ride home
insincere
stole some beer
no one cares
no ride home
playing dead
floors the bed
comforts worn
no ride home
Track Name: Future Former
FUTURE FORMER

hail hail providence
friends of favors below the belt again
more times than you can name off the top of your head
sell em a line to carry it along
the game you rely on only serves itself
you don't mind as long as no one else can tell

hail failed providence
friends are favors below the belt again
more times than you can name off the top of your head
sell em a line to carry it along
the game you rely on only serves itself
you don't mind as long as no one else can tell
Track Name: LAM
LAM

somewhere there's a family ambling amicably on the lam, they call it a blessing
they say there's an art to shouldering those boulder sized burdens
the brightest light warms the darkest places
the next day follows the night

somewhere there's the damage of water invading writing in the sand we're calling a lesson
they say there's an art to emboldening until you're more certain
the brightest light warms the darkest places
the next day follows the night
Track Name: Side Effects May Include
SIDE EFFECTS MAY INCLUDE

before you go any further, of all the things
damning a bare-all portrait at four in the fucking morning
if it bore any long importance i'd cop to it
remember that

oh well when  you put it that way
as for the oversight by committee, can it wait til morning
it won't be long til you relate

before you go any further, of all the things
being your own informant at four in the fuckin morning
you were already gone before the whole ordeal came to a head
remember that

oh well when  you put it that way
as for the oversight by committee, can it wait til morning
it won't be long til you relate
Track Name: Automat 23
AUTOMAT 23

deciding carefully in automat 23 on a dilemma that is easily unmade
on the interstate the metal from the pedal's giving all the faith
better than a word its all the faith that you need to be apart

nurturing a rather catatonic enemy, will yourself into a semi-sober state
operating out of overdue necessity is all the craze, all a phase
should you go to work or call in rich with a penny in the pot
for the need to feel the part

in the dreaded true moment, a major move forward
will make it clear momentarily what you're waiting for

settling in the finality of severence, focus on the fact its actually okay
deferring idling indifferences all because you're on your way
a bigger than enormous undertaking to make your way to start
the need to be a part

in the dreaded true moment, a major move forward
forget what you're told, it will be clear
momentarily, or when you need it to
what you think you're waiting for
Track Name: Sporto
SPORTO

the champion is a victory monger
no telling if he'll ever stop
until the fates start taking over
its lonely living at the top

swing with your bitterness my lunatic love
fists carved and cold to give the sting away
my round can be yours, your round can be won
too little too late again
got a bolt to throw, all the recipients are
surviving through their mutilated days
the fame and the ire
the flame in the eye
another trick to doling out the bleeding

the challenger's a hungry monster
with a roiling rough & tumble rot
with battered beady eyes right on ya
so put em up

swing with your bitterness my lunatic love
fists carved and cold to give the sting away
my round can be yours, your round can be won
too little too late again
got a bolt to throw, all the recipients are
surviving through their mutilated days
the fame and the ire
the flame in the eye
another trick to doling out the bleeding
Track Name: One Liner
ONE LINER

you've got a lot to wait out
that sort of time can bring anything
may take a lot to admit it
by then you'll agree to anything
you're well beyond the limit
of what a fuck and a song used to repair
twisting a fact to face it
taking it overboard again
with rapid-fire one liners you stole
from your favorite show
all kidding aside
the battle lines were already drawn
long long before
and all these friendly fires 
once bright are growing cold
you've got a lot to think out
that sort of mind can bring anything
may take a while to admit it
by then you'll agree to anything

to hell with the heavenly sorting of the air
sensing the unavoidable before its actually made clear
through the bramble of the boorish same old stories that i hear
control derived from holding to your defenselessness 
and who am i to demand fairness
how brazen of me, how bold
what more need i require beside growing old
Track Name: Markie Post
MARKIE POST

marjorie's a gleaming eye
a tour de force all on her own
pacific was the standard time
for court at night with hearts afire
maybe my regard's too high
maybe i expect too much
but all the odds against
would never sway my feelings either way
you're the only one who knows
please don't ever say to me
you know marjorie's the only name 
she won't take
Track Name: Patchwork Girl
PATCHWORK GIRL

tale to tale you thought she was the fault behind
tale to tale is all there was to fall behind
tend the table turning on the faulted line
tell me tell me what the fuss is all about
take your time ruining a failure-safe route
do or die rarely upon us, we forget to find our way out
from a balcony in the furthest row
i saw a sore thumb standing out
who's the ideal and who's the antidote
on cemetery grounds
share a smoke, a flask and a joke
believe you me they've been warned 
once before to beware

nothing to say but ten paces out, turn, and fire

take your time ruining a failure-safe route
do or die rarely upon us, we forget to find our way out
from a balcony in the furthest row
i saw a sore thumb standing out
who's the ideal and who's the antidote
on cemetery grounds
share a smoke, a flask and a joke
believe you me they've been warned 
once before to beware

can't say you didn't know now
can't take it back, you know now
Track Name: AM Radio
AM RADIO

back pain and subtle moments of fun
a more than ordinary part of the sum
downtown where the bus doesn't run
for the love of what your days have become
coat tails will only get you so far
spreading word at all the silver lake bars 
for a show downtown but no one knows who you are
waiting up to hear your song in the car
on the AM radio
who'd have figured you'd be at it so long
more than over the diminishing draw
downtown in the thick of the slog
barely noticing the talk that you walk
on the AM radio
Track Name: Spell
SPELL

wait for the call
drain the bottle down
it helps for a time
already under mine
bloody your tongue
holster your gun
feign that you're fine
already under mine
