about

Atari Ferrari Spokane, Washington

Classic Rock Magazine says Atari Ferrari sounds “rather like the kind of thing T.Rex and Tom Petty might have come up with, if they’d decided to make an album together" and credit them for being part of the next wave of rock and roll, alongside acts like Greta Van Fleet, The Struts, and Ghost.

The boys came together originally as a one-night-only tribute band, following the death of David Bowie.

Track Name: Just Wanna Know Ya
I'm on fire

I'm not grown

I'm a liar

But not alone

You're so cold

Such a tease

But so bold

It's what I need



For too long you've been putting me down

When baby I just want you around

For too long you've been passing me by

And baby I wanna know why



I'm not getting any younger

Please just end this hunger

I just wanna show you

I just wanna know you



Yeah!



(repeat in toto)
Track Name: Born In The Wrong Time
I feel like I'm living in the wrong time

Paying for all the sins that aren't mine

Everyone should be having a good time

Now we feel like we need a lifeline



When all we need to be pretty is to be nice

And all we need is love to be alright



Waking up in a world of sorrow

Waking up to a world I don't know

Where did all the peace and the love go?

Maybe there is a better tomorrow



When all we need to be pretty is to be nice

And all we need is love to be alright



Waking up in a world of sorrow

Waking up in a world I don't know

Where did all the peace and the love go?

Maybe there is a better tomorrow



When all you need to be pretty is to be nice

And all you need is love to be alright
Track Name: Rebel
I was born with a cloud over me

Maybe that's the price we pay for every victory

I know it would be easy if I just fit in

But that wouldn't be me - who am I, again?



I could just take the easy way out

But the love is never there to stay, and in the end you're left without

I know it would be easy if I just fit in

Maybe I was born to be a rebel til the end



The road is long and damnit it is dire

But it never feels as wrong as putting out that fire

I'm still holding on, run right down to the wire

Never letting go of that sadness called desire



I was born with a cloud over me

Maybe that's the price we pay for every victory

I know it would be easy if I just fit in

Maybe I was born to be a rebel til the end
Track Name: Middle Of Nowhere
I've been living on the outside

Looking down at everyone

I've been dreaming about the inside

It sounds like a lot of fun



Everyone's got problems

Everyone's got doubt

Mostly how to get along

How to live without



But a lot can happen in the middle of nowhere

Yes a lot can happen in the middle of nowhere



There's not a lot of love around here

Just black holes and welfare checks

It's just so hard to overcome the fear

Baby, what did I expect?



Everyone's got problems

Everyone's got doubt

Mostly how to get along

How to live without



But a lot can happen in the middle of nowhere

Yes a lot can happen in the middle of nowhere



I think I'll get my act together

I'll take it on the road

It doesn't really need to be forever

It's just somewhere to go



Cos everyone's got problems

Everyone's got doubt

Mostly how to get along

How to live without



But a lot can happen in the middle of nowhere

Yes a lot can happen in the middle of nowhere
Track Name: Shade Of Grey
I've seen the light

Comes over the middle line

But I know

There's a darkness not far behind



A sweet relief

Blows in on another wind

But too strong

The whole thing comes down again



I know that nothing lasts

And everything must pass

But does it have to end?



Sometimes I feel like I have it all

And that we could last another day

But then the curtain begins to fall

All my colors turn a shade of grey



It feels right

Starting over from time to time

But I know

Everything was already mine



How do we

Keep going when we know the truth?

It could be

The answer lies within our youth



They know that nothing lasts

And everything must pass

But nothing has to end



Sometimes I feel like I have it all

And that we could last another day

But then the curtain begins to fall

All my colors turn a shade of grey



They know that nothing lasts

And everything must pass

But does it have to end?



Sometimes I feel like I have it all

And that we could last another day

But then the curtain begins to fall

All my colors turn a shade of grey
Track Name: Alice
I was a good man

Did nobody wrong

At least none I can think of

For the sake of this song



But something has shifted

The times - they did change

My friends and my family

They all think I'm strange



And it's all cos of you

Yeah it's all cos of you



Yeah, I was a good man

But I think I forgot

Just how to be

Something I'm not



They think I gamble

They think I'm a joke

They say I can't handle

Oh, nothing - I'm broke



And it's all cos of you

Yeah it's all cos of you



My friends think I'm crazy

They call me insane

I'm the wreckage

Of a runaway train

You light up my nightmares

Writing songs in my brain

And again, yeah again



And it's all cos of you

Yeah it's all cos of you
Track Name: Trouble
So your boss is a bitch, man

Yeah one hell of a drag

And you feel it's a risk man

Try taking a stand!



And you know it's a bitch, man

The way you crucify me

If I don't want to play victim

It should be all up to me



I didn't care what was troublin' me

Til I heard it was troublin' you



So your boss is a bitch, man

Yeah one hell of a drag

And you feel it's a risk man

To try taking a stand



I didn't care what was troublin' me

Til I heard it was troublin' you

But you didn't care what was troublin' me

Til you heard it was troublin' you



And you know it's a bitch, man

The way you crucify me

If I don't want to play victim

It should be all up to me



I didn't care what was troublin' me

Til I heard it was troublin' you

But you didn't care what was troublin' me

Til you felt it was troublin' you

No, you didn't care what was troublin' me

Til you felt it was troublin' you
Track Name: Great Fortunes
Great fortunes begin with a crime
Disasters run out of time
Or so they say now


It seemed like I didn't care
You loved me I wouldn't dare
You gave me chances



But you
You and I
Slowly lost our way together
Yeah you
You and I
We lost our way



I could give you some alibi
But you always see through my
Shadow dances


No way I'd ever return
Too fun to watch bridges burn
And fall to ashes



Yeah you
You and I
Slowly lost our way together
Yeah you
You and I
We lost our way



This is not the first time
And this is not the last
It's so hard to see the future
Through the past



Addiction tells the truth
You can get so used to
Some kind of madness


And time after time
I go away
Yeah time after time
I go away, away
Time after time
I go away
Track Name: Gone Girl
Don't listen to her

She knows better than you

She knows all about

The kinds of things I do



She's seen what I am

Been with me day to day

The only one to know

That ever got away



Yeah she's the gone girl

I'm a prisoner in her world

Gone gone girl



Don't listen to her

She knows better than you

She knows all about

The kinds of things I do



The only one to know

Who ever stuck around

So don't be surprised

If she turns up underground



Yeah she's the gone girl

I'm a prisoner in her world

Gone gone girl
Track Name: Turn Your Back
It used to be like make-believe

It used to be so fun

Look wot you've dun to me

Now, look wot you've dun



I never took up arms with you

I never played that game

Like the men before me do

I'm not the same



You closed the door

When I wanted more



I can't believe you turned your back on me baby

Can't believe you put me out, out

Can't you see you meant the world to me baby

But now you fill me up with doubt, doubt



Through memories I trip and glide

In my heart now, which you denied

Look wot you've dun to me

Now, look wot you've dun



How long did it take for you

Or was there anything to do

How long did you know

I'm not the one?



You closed the door

When I wanted more



I can't believe you turned your back on me baby

Can't believe you put me out, out

Can't you see you meant the world to me baby

But now you fill me up with doubt, doubt



You closed the door

When I wanted more



I can't believe you turned your back on me baby

Can't believe you put me out, out

Can't you see you meant the world to me baby

But now you fill me up with doubt, doubt
