about

The Jordans are a four piece rock and pop band from Galway, Ireland and are full of energy and enthusiasm for good music. Consisting of close knit family members, they cut their teeth as a cover band, playing countless gigs in their home county and beyond. From an early age, they established themselves as a talented and entertaining group full of ambitions.

The last few years saw the group eager to break free from the constraints of being a cover band. It was decided that new and original material was the way forward. A number of original tunes were written and put to together into a album. The group are currently promoting this debut album, entitled Go With The Flow.

The Jordans draw inspiration from a wide variety of influences, including the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles and Dire Straits.

Track Name: Evil Lady
She's got looks that can kill
And eyes that can't see
That we could go together
She's the one for me
But she can be so cruel
It's just lie after lie
She messes me around
While she's with some other guy

But worst of all you don't think that you've done anything wrong
So just get out of here
This has gone on way too long

She's an evil lady.
Evil, evil lady.
She's an evil lady.

So time passes on
And we go separate ways.
My heart torn to pieces
And my head in a daze
I look around
And baby what do I see
Your face is everywhere
What do you want from me

And it's some kinda curse that I ever let you into my life
And girl it's time to move on 'cause this thing just ain't right

Baby, baby
It's time to let me go
You had me under your spell
But it's about time you know
That I'm not the one
No matter how hard you try
I'll never be the one
So just find some other guy

And worst of all you don't think that you've done anything wrong
A "sorry" would be nice but it's just good to know that you're gone
Track Name: Frozen Images
Photo album, photo frame
Pictures of everything
They are all the same
People I've forgotten
Some I've hated
Young and old
And people I've dated
Photo album, photo frame

Picture of me and picture of you
Black and white, coloured
Any will do
Picture with me and picture with you
God you look scary
And so do you

Memories of events
Christenings and weddings
Or some fragments
Time passing
Things changing
Old pictures
Of everyone's faces
Photo album, photo frame

Hairy, scary
Unshaven, unclean
Fat, thin and lean
You've never seen
Fashion that
Would offend
Perms and mullets
They were all the trend
Track Name: Say It To The Man
He works all day
He sleeps all night
He only sees the dark
Never the light
Ain't no time for rock n roll
Ain't no time to take a stroll

The man is always on his back
Now it's time to fight him back

He said:
Stick your job where the sun don't shine
I don't care 'cause I'll be fine
Stick your job where the sun don't shine
I don't care 'cause I've grown a spine

The man tells him
When he can work
But the man
Is only a jerk
He don't need your job no more
He don't need your pay no more

Now it's time to stick it to the man
'Cause it's no longer part of his plan

Good luck to them sad old sods
To the rules
And acting like a squad
It's time to go his own way
He ain't gonna get old and grey

No more shit to take from the man
No more saving money to make his plans

Stick it to the man
Stick him in the can
Stick it to the man
Hit him with a pan
Woah, stick it
Yeah, stick it
Track Name: Go With The Flow
He's got me distracted
His music is too good
Makes me wonder if he
Acts like he should
Where you been
All this time
Been busy
Tryin' to make it rhyme

Surrounded by blues chairs
And people I don't know
I've been spending too long
Just going with the flow

Now he's dead
He smoked too much
Got riffs in my head
Can't play them right as such
Spent a lot of money
Spent a lot of time
Staring at the blank pages
Just can't make up my mind

Surrounded by blues chairs
And people I don't know
I've been spending too long
Just going with the flow

Caught up in the choices we make
Distracted by the path we take
Surrounded by people that are fake
It's all been a big mistake

These ideas
You know they make me bleed
Maybe I'm selfish
Maybe it's greed
Do my best to
Try and succeed
And it's a pity no one
Will take heed

Surrounded by blues chairs
And people I don't know
I've been spending too long
Just going with the flow

Caught up in the choices we make
Distracted by the path we take
Surrounded by people that are fake
It's all been a big mistake
Lost in a world that's on the take
I wish somebody was awake
My whole body starts to ache
Sleepless nights that I can't take
Track Name: Changes
It's funny how you never change
You just seem to stay the same
Black leaves fall off and die
They rot away with the rain
The fifth dimension, it opens up
It's a strange new world that we got

If only it stayed the same
Just like you seem to do
If only it stayed the same
Just like you seem to do

You can't change the world we live in
You can only help the people in it
You can't change the things that happen
You can't stitch on every pattern

You can't fix it, you can't solve it
You can't change it or arrange it
You can't fix, you can't solve it
You can only be a friend

I wonder if their problems were solved
Would everything here evolve
I wonder if some things were different
Would the people be happy with it

If only it stayed the same
Just like you seem to do
If only it stayed the same
Just like you seem to do
Track Name: The Case Of A Nut
Well it's been hard to see
What it's been doing to me
But I think I see it now
All this time
I had my doubts
But I can definitely see how
I've been trying to see
Ahead of me
But all I see is white
If anyone tries to help me
I end up in a fight

What's that in my mind?
I've had enough
What's that I can't find?
I'm cracking up
Who's that in my mind?
I've had enough
Who's that? I think I'm blind
I'm cracking up

It ain't too cool being insane
No matter what they say
But sometimes it feels pretty good
To get your own way
I once heard somebody say
That every dog has its day
I've already had mine
And that's OK
Track Name: The Devils Deal
The guy has got hands
And he's got plans
To use them for rock n roll
He's got a guitar
And makes it scream wide and far
To the sound of every band who rocks
He knows the prince of darkness
And he knows his address
It's in the fire and brimstone of hell
He's gonna pay him a visit

He likes to rock
He likes to roll
He likes to party all night
He likes to rock
He likes to roll
He likes to stay up 'til the day gives light

There's no stopping him now
Once you hear it you will bow
And get into that classic guitar sound
Look at him now do the duck walk
While he plays that face melting solo
He's got them hooked on that rhythm
See them dance to it with him
There's no stopping him now
On the way to 'H' town

Once he gets up on that stage
You will hear the roar for days
From the crowd that's come to see him play
He shows his hand to the crowd
And he shouts it out loud
'Get ready for some rock n roll'
He's made his deal
With the man in red
And he don't care or give a shred
As long as he's got his guitar
Track Name: Merman
Big man with no drive
Swimming after his life
Forever and crying
For the fish who is dying
Swimming hard and he's trying
To see where he's going
Big man with no drive
Swimming after his life
Forever and crying
For the fish who is dying

Not that he cares for gold
He just does what he's told
And he's sorry that
He can't swim faster than his mind
Not that he cares for gold
He just does what he's told
And he's sorry that
He can't swim faster than his mind

Big man buys a boat
The only way he can float
Far out to the sea
Where he thinks he should be
Long way from the glee
Of his misery

Not that he cares for gold
He just does what he's told
And he's sorry that
He can't swim faster than his mind
Not that he feels that old
He just does what he's told
And it's time that
He swam faster than his mind
Track Name: Walking Man
I got too many problems
And I just can't cope
Running away
Is my only hope
You want a piece of me
As if I cared
I couldn't be bothered
So this time you'll be spared

So you want my help
Is that what you said
Have I got 'helper'
Written on my head
Ask me who I am
A straight answer I'll give you
I'm the guy
Who's got nothing to do

I'm a walking man
And I'm walking away

Jesus on the cross
When he wanted some water
I was there
But my mindset never falters
And when the men in power
Go to war over oil
You won't see me
In the frontline soil

Who are you
You've got no right to judge me
'Cause you and me
Well, we're the same, you see
Where were you
When they asked you to stop
Burning fossil fuels
It didn't catch you on the hop

All of these problems
You know the cause
People walking away
Too busy to pause
So if someone asks you
Who you are
If you tell them the truth
You won't get very far
