about

The Zannies Grand Rapids, Michigan

The Zannies began as a basement solo project by Ben Steer, lead singer and bassist, in early 2013. With the addition of Eric Satterlee's classic rock and blues influence on lead guitar, Peter Slack's steady rhythmic plucking, and Grayson Groot's passion for heavy metal translated through his hard-hitting drum style, The Zannies evolved from indie alternative to a hard rock throwback. ... more

Track Name: Shattered
Say what you want about me
I’m a bit crazy
but there’s no such thing as too much creativity
You say you wanna bite me
baby yes please
you gotta know I love it when
you give me a little tease

I didn’t know, didn’t know
it would get like this
I didn’t know, didn’t know
I was on her list
with just a flick of the wrist,
I knew that she’d be missed

I’m shattered by your embrace
like the way I shattered in your face
my brain’s thinking that I’ve had enough
but I know a little organ that’s making this tough

you couldn’t tell by her face
she likes leather and lace
I almost missed out on a different kind of taste
she put herself where she didn’t belong
but she wasn’t wrong
I want her all to myself now, but she’s long gone

I didn’t know, didn’t know
it would get like this
I didn’t know, didn’t know
I was on her list
with what she said through lips so red,
she had me out of my head

NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA

Track Name: Mean Girls
Suppose I hadn’t left you alone
with nothing but a few parting words,
and a house full of possibilities
would you be able to love me?
you still love me

I was mean, girl, when the mean girls ended
we ended!
but I barely even know what I said
I don’t even remember what I said!
HEY!

How’s Mr. Beta? Does he look as good as me?
do you think he’d stick around if he wasn’t getting
in between?

I’m gonna be a little bitter ‘fore I get any better
you got me all shaken up
but after being sleepless,
found my weakness,
now I’m waking up

do you want to be of use to me?
then set me free
if I wanted to go back to you,
it’s cause I didn’t think it through
Track Name: She Knows
up up and away she goes
she knows, I know she knows it’s wrong,
but I can’t help her bouts,
she’s killing herself from the inside out
I’ll be sad to see her go
and hate to say I told her so
but I’ve asked her so many times before
and she said no

just once more baby, then I promise I will quit
oh, how blind I must have been to put up with that shit
just one more, a cut, a pill pop,
a needle in my vein
just something to make me feel alright
‘cause I’m fucking up again

up up and away she goes
she knows, I know she knows it’s wrong,
but I can’t help her bouts,
she’s killing herself from the inside out
I’ll be sad to see her go
and hate to say I told her so
but I’ve asked her so many times before
and she said no

I’ll never leave you alone
nobody’s going home
I’m living in your blood
so cut me out, you’re done

I know it’s hard to fall asleep at night
but just turn out the light
and you’ll be fine
I swear, I’m never coming back
and I’m sticking to that
don’t hold me back
Track Name: Wannabe
I don’t wanna be a wannabe
a part of your hypocrisy
but how do I compete in this industry
if I don’t wanna be a wannabe

we’re all just a click away from fame
just depends on whose thumb you’re sucking on
the mean green is the way of the machine
not like the days of Clapton and Vaughan
so you wanna make it big
do you wanna go somewhere
you got to pay the bills if you don’t have the skills
got to pay your way to make the people care

‘cause they don’t care about what you want
they just wanna sing along
to the siren song

I don’t wanna be a wannabe
a part of your hypocrisy
but how do I compete in this industry
if I don’t wanna be a wannabe

'cause they don't care if your heart's not in it
hurry up, you've only got one minute
to show us what you're made of
I don't have words for this part
I'm not sure what to say,
but it'll go a little something like this

‘cause they don’t care about what you need
they just wanna watch you bleed
so give them what they need

I don’t wanna be a wannabe
a part of your hypocrisy
but how do I compete in this industry
if I don’t wanna be a wannabe

I don’t wanna be a wannabe
Track Name: Hunger Headaches
I said "fuck you".
Who needs food? I've got a pack of Black & Milds, and Newports, too.
I'll eat the smoke and drink the tar.
Have a half a bite of resin and a lick of Djarum
All I need is an apple a day.
Nobody ever told me otherwise anyway.
I'm feeling sick, I'm about to faint,
but I've never been happier with my weight

three meals a day might make me vomit,
don't you worry about the scale, 'cause I'm on top of it

If I need food like I need you
baby, I could fast for a year or two
it's not right, no, it's not new
no, it's just what I wanna do
my agony is just too much
I don't have time for that wicked stuff
I know it's wrong, but it's not enough
don't bring me down, 'cause I'm fucking up

begging you please, intoxicate me
so I don't feel the need to eat
but not the booze, it's got too many calories
and the weed gives me the munchies
so I'll stick to goddamned tobacco
and suck these fucking things until they seed
and the nicotine is a part of me

"nothing tastes as good as skinny feels"
I hate myself now because I thought it was real

oh, I don't need to eat
no, I don't feel the need
it's that little voice inside my head
he's screaming out and crying

but I need to eat 'cause I need me,
but my appetite is not what it used to be
I'll admit that I've been weak
sometimes it's just to hard to feed
but defeat, I'll not concede
'cause I will fight and I'll break free
these hunger headaches will recede
I need this world, and it needs me
