Mitch for Mayor Edmonton, Alberta

"Mitch for Mayor" are a trio of musicians including Steve Wisser on the drums, Kevin Jones on keys, and Mitchell Charles Fox on guitar and vocals. Starting late in 2015, the band have created a sound unto their own and are hoping that you can give them a hand categorizing it. Come see them at their next show and let them know what you think so they can make a better bio for themselves! ... more

Track Name: Mom's Basement
Mom's Basement

I've got this mad energy maybe a head injury don't know whats come over me..
Between the hours two and three my entire body goes in to frenzy..
I could take in all the words any one wants to be heard, I can learn..
Find solutions to the problems cool the burn, save the world, rule the earth..
But I cant clean these bugs out of my head, these thoughts wrapped in cobwebs,
If I don't take full advantage of this time explained only by magic…

Well, why cant these seeds show up in the spring when I'm ready to plant them?
I mean, a better time would be any time that I could make some noise..
In opportunistic terms alone the opportunity is harder to fathom..
While the world sleeps under this dark blanket you could hear a pin drop, there's no choice...
…Use your inside voice!
I won’t step on anyones toes, I’ll sit quietly fidgeting in the corner, so you can watch your shows…

I could try, I could wait, I could die on this stage,
I could sing to my heart’s content, but I’m still:
In mom’s basement…

Get the hell out of here…

Some say they’ve got the blues, others say they’re seeing red,
me I say Ive got the greys because its all static in my head,
I don’t care, no I don’t care, when your bitchin and complaining babe its hardly fair, how could you even expect me to care?!

Some say that they would chose a mile in another’s shoes,
Ya i make excuses too, but thats entirely on you, I don’t care!
Not I don’t care!
When you’re bitchin and complaining babe it’s hardly fair,
How could you even expect me to care!?

Get the hell out of here!
Track Name: Oh My, Oh My
Oh My, oh my…

I am a man, no particular plan, I’m in your town, Understand..
I was raised by the sun, set by the moon, if you see me, you can’t flee to soon..

Because I can curse among the worst, and Im bursting at the seems for my turn to do something mean.. I don’t know why, think I’m just that guy, they won’t know what to say, Oh My, oh my…

If I could confess, it would just be a pain for us,
We should address, that this might get dangerous..

I’ve come a long unparticular way, just passing by, but i might just stay.. I’ll sow some oats, lay down some roots, I’ll pledge the oath, so you’ll all be fooled…

I’ll take this place, make it my own, remember this face turns you to stone.. so look away, worry not sweet child, you won’t want to see my return to the wild…

If I could confess, it would just be a pain for us,
We should address, that this might get dangerous..
If I could confess, it would just be a pain for us,
Maybe we should undress, and see if this gets dangerous…

There’s no reason this can not be fun
Track Name: Get a Life, Fuckface
Get A Life, Fuckface

Well I fell in with a dangerous crowd, I’m the only one involved,
We don’t work to hard, but play too loud, because theres no-one else around,
Prestigious not but exclusive yes, because alone we’re at our best,
Been testing time’s limits with impatient regret, and a salty but sweet detest..

Abscond with reality, a decade long fatality, abscond with time, blur these chapters of life..

Shake your head at the haste of time,
But shake your fist from the back of the line..

The mob grows larger, its beginning to show, a such thing as too alone,
A late night mob with its torches aglowin, and it shows no signs of slowin,
Pitchforks glimmer on an evening’s shine, it’s coming for its prize,
The trophy is the monster in the back of my mind, I’m a hostage, you’re a sacrifice..

Abscond with reality, a decade long fatality, abscond with time, blur these chapters of life..

Shake your head at the haste of time,
But shake your fist from the back of the line..

Get a life, Fuckface.
Track Name: In My Light
In My Light

I get frustrated like everybody else, and I have secrets that I just can’t wait to tell.. I don’t know why I still give advice, but I’m better than you at keeping in these lies…

Now I’m so convinced I am always right, so come in or get out, you’re standing in my light…

Listen to what I say and practice as I preach, and just for a tease lets see how far you’ll reach.. Take this medicine, call me up at dawn, eat it all up and you’ll see I’m the only man who has never been wrong..

Now I’m so convinced I am always right, so come in or get out you’re standing in my light…
Yeah I’m so convinced I am always right, so come in or get out, either way you’ll be in my light…

How is it for you to be omniscient?
Infinite possibilities?

Because you’re so convinced you’re always right, you say come in or get out you’re standing in my light..
Ya I’m so convinced I’m always right, so come in or get out, you’re standing in my light.
