Pedro the Lion

Pedro the Lion was an indie rock band from Seattle, Washington. Singer-songwriter David Bazan formed the band in 1995 and represented its main creative force, backed by a varying rotation of collaborating musicians. TW Walsh is considered to be the sole official band member besides Bazan. In 2006 Bazan and Walsh split amicably and Pedro the Lion was dissolved as Bazan went solo. Releasing four full-length albums and five EPs over 11 years, the band was known for its first person narrative lyrics with political and religious themes. Pedro The Lion was managed by Bob Andrews at Undertow Music Collective. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Paramedics brave and strong 
Up before the break of dawn 
Putting poker faces on 
Broken bodies all day long 

The neighbors heard a fight 
Someone had a knife 
It must have have been the wife 
Husband's lost a lot of blood 
He wakes up screaming 
"Oh my God, am I gonna die? 
Am I gonna die?" 
As they strapped his arms down to his sides 
At times like these they'd been taught to lie 
"Buddy just calm down, you'll be alright." 

Several friends came to his grave 
His children were so well-behaved 
As the priest got up to speak 
The assembly craved relief 
But he himself had given up 
So instead he offered them this bitter cup 
"You're gonna die, we're all gonna die 
Could be twenty years, could be tonight 
Lately I have been wondering why 
We go to so much trouble to postpone the unavoidable 
And prolong the pain of being alive"
