about

Dover and the Elevators Roanoke, Virginia

The electric duo that makes up Dover and the Elevators are here to disappoint. The garage rock, psychedelic, punk band are all of those genres and yet no particular one simultaneously. Dover's music is best heard while speeding in school zones or while sitting in your room thinking about your ex. They comes in hot, and leave you rode hard and put up wet. ... more

Track Name: Don't Come Around
I don't like myself
No different than anybody else
I'm in love with someone I hate
The reasons I masturbate

Don't come around
I'm warning you
Don't come around
What did I tell you?

My gut is rotten
My head is nodding
My doors I'm locking
So don't come knocking

Don't come around
I'm warning you
Don't come around
What did i tell you?

Well hey you there
Where the hell you been
Well hey you there
Where the hell you been
Track Name: Perfume & Cigarettes
Perfume and cigarettes
I don't wan't her
But I still chase it
There's vomit in mouth
As she is in my mits
Too far now
To go back on it

Perfume Cigarettes
I don't know the time
Its not on my wrist
It doesn't matter now what it is
It doesn't matter

Perfume cigarettes
I don't want her
She is on my lips
It doesn't matter now
Too far to go back on it

Perfume cigarettes
So much easier when
I hate it
Don't you know
I hate it
Track Name: Don't Even
See me when I'm standing near
You don't even
Watch me shed my tear
You don't even
Ask about last year
You don't even
Know about my greatest fear
You don't even

Tell me my brother is there
You don't even
Like my underwear
You don't even
Wanna go to my lair
You don't even
Comment on my hair
You don't even

Whisper in my ear
You don't even
Know what grinds my gears
You don't even
Wanna buy another beer
You don't even
Like to hang with my peers
You don't even

You don't even
You don't even
Track Name: Thinking of Me
Hey
Babe
Why
Ain't you talking to me
Ain't you talking to me
Ain't you talking to me
Ain't you talking to me

If you knew
What i can do
I see you
Start to think of me
You go'n think of me
You go'n think of me
You go'n think of me


Girl
World
You
Gonna care about me
Go'n care about me
Go'n care about me
Go'n care about me

Now I know
I see its so
I need you
You gonna love with me
You gonna fall in love with me
You gonna fall in love with me
You gonna fall in love with me

Now I see
It's plain to me
You don't need me
You don't care about me
You don't care about me
You don't care about me
You don't care about me

One day
Honey
Maybe
You will think of me
You gonna think of me
You gonna think of me
You gonna think of me
Track Name: Voluntary
Use your law to condone your violence
Use your violence to condone your law
Convince us we want it
But you just want to control us all

And in too the emptiness I ride

Sadness comes in waves
You say it will all go away
Promises to vote you in
But it happens again and again

And in too the emptiness I ride
Track Name: Great Day
Stressed out at the DMV
Got a wedding we got to be
You are mad but still smiling at me
You are mad but still smiling at me

I had a great day too
I had a great day too

You drive my car dog in the rear
He likes to lick in my ear
I don't mind just want to be clear
I don't mind just want to be clear

I had a great day too
I had a great day too

Dancing drunk, getting high
There's nothing i would rather try
Without you by my side
Without you by my side
Without you by my side
Track Name: I'm Scared
I'm scared
But I ain't
Afraid of death

I'm scared
But I ain't
Afraid of death

Watch scary movies
Don't get dressed
Lay in my bed
I am a mess
When I'm depressed

Glued to the floor
I can't take much more
I need less
I'm not my best
Track Name: Adam's Song
I don't fit
I can't understand it
I can't relate
I don't think that i planned it this way

I don't fit
I can't understand it
I can't relate
I don't think that i planned it this way

I don't fit
I can't understand it
I can't relate
I think it might be better this way
