Shot Down 04:28
Shot Down Jimmy’s 16 he’s got a head full of dreams Got a hole in his pocket and a rip in his jeans He carries six, with a knife on the side Got a wild crazy thought that he never could die Kicked outta the house on a rainy day Nowhere to go, nowhere to stay A dirty kid with no major plans Gonna eat his dinner from a garbage can! Tell me why? Shot Down! Shot Down! Dead on his knees, tell me why! Shot down, shot down! His life’s a mess, he’s always seein’ double Gettin screwed up, and in lots of trouble Stealin’ money was his only way Shootin up a shop, for just a little pay Breaks in this house, thinks he’s all alone When the lights come on and the owner is home He levels his gun to Jimmy’s head But Jimmys got the jump and he shoots him dead Tell me why? Shot Down! Shot Down! Dead on his knees, tell me why! Shot down, shot down! Sirens scream and begin to wail He’s got the hound dogs right on his trail Now Jimmy’s back is up against a wall When the bullets start to fly, Jimmy ends it all Tell me why? Shot Down! Shot Down! Dead on his knees, tell me why! Shot down, shot down! Blood on the sheets, tell me why! Shot down, shot down, shot down! Blood on the sheets, tell me why! Shot down, shot down, shot down! Tell me why!?!

I Wanna Go 04:37
I Wanna Go I get home from work, I’m tired and beat I wanna get myself up and on my feet So I wanna go, (wanna go), oh where to go? All of my friends that I think that I have You know when something goes wrong they end up stabbin my back So I wanna go, (wanna go), oh where to go? Now I never believed in all the things I’ve said I’ve gotta live my life before I end up dead. I wanna go! Hit the road I wanna go! And see the world I wanna go! And take control I wanna go! Out on the road where the night comes so fast You know I’m chasin’ the sunlight, it’ll never last So I wanna go, (wanna go) oh where to go? I’ve done 2,000 miles to land on my feet There’s nobody here, I feel so incomplete So I wanna go, (wanna go) oh where to go? Now I never believed in all the things I’ve read I’ve gotta live my life before I end up dead I wanna go! Hit the road I wanna go! And see the world I wanna go! And take control I wanna go! Now that I’m here and I’ve seen what I’ve seen It ain’t nothin like what it was in my dream So I wanna go, (wanna go), oh way to go All of my friends that I knew that I had They’ll take me right back, adn ge me right on track So I wanna go, (wanna go), oh way back home Now I believe in all the things that I say I wanna live my life, I’m gonna do it today I wanna go! Hit the road I wanna go! And see the world I’m gonna go! And take control I wanna go! Hit the road I wanna go… go…!!

She's Hot 04:43
She’s Hot I know this girl with a bad reputation She blows a kiss it’s got a nasty temptation And I know what she really wants tonight So she tells me that she can’t be alone She gets in my car and says “take me home” Cause you know, she’s gonna make everything all right With her high heels clickin’ down the boulevard Long legs struttin, could it be so hard? Takin’ what she wants, she can go so far Do it anywhere, in the back of a car ‘Cause she’s hot and in love Well, she loves anyone she could be with She can’t stop, it’s so tough Now she knows what it takes to leave me It may cost me just a pretty penny She also knows, that I got it within me But she’s got what I really want tonight She’s so fast, she’s so young and so good Makes a man reel like he should ‘Cause she knows she’s gonna take all his cash tonight With her high heels clickin’ down the boulevard Long legs struttin, could it be so hard? Takin’ what she wants, she can go so far Do it anywhere, in the back of a car ‘Cause she’s hot and in love Well, she loves anyone she could be with She can’t stop, it’s so tough Now she knows what it takes to leave me ‘Cause she’s hot and in love Well, she loves anyone she could be with She can’t stop, it’s so tough Now she knows what it takes to leave me With her high heels clickin’ down the boulevard Long legs struttin, could it be so hard? Takin’ what she wants, she can go so far Do it anywhere, in the back of a car… She lives her life way out on the streets Doin’ what she does to make ends meet Living everyday, every night in fear She can’t see no future through all her tears NO!

Set me free, I don’t want chains holding me Dance, dance, for the show, now I got you And I’ll never let go! Geppeto!... Geppeto! Stuck in your trap, hangin’ by wires Love to drag me around, and you never tire Pul me up and drag me to the floor I wanna break free, I can’t take it no more I see the door and I see the light Wanna run but my slacks grown tight In the eyes, I’m hypnotized Wanna break free, I can’t take your lies Over and over can you see the light Gonna break free, I’m gonna take my flight I said FREE, FREE! Set me free, I don’t want chains holding me Dance, dance, for the show, now I got you And I’ll never let go! Geppeto!... Geppeto! I said FREE, FREE! Set me free, I don’t want chains holding me Dance, dance, for the show, now I got you And I’ll never let go! Geppeto!... Geppeto!... Geppeto!... Geppeto!! SET ME FREE!!!

Wild Cry Spotted your from across the room Undressed yo with it’s blood shot eyes It hears you screamin’, while your beggin’ for more No time to waste, don’t be shy, shy, shy I hear a wild cry A wild cry in the night I hear a wild cry Cryin’ out in the night You’re a victim any given day Waitin’ on your next score If the moneys’ not there you’re gonna do it anyway Get up to leave, can’t find the door, door, door I hear a wild cry A wild cry in the night I hear a wild cry Cryin’ out in the night You say you need it, but you can’t see it You’ll never make it your way You’re feelin’ crazy, it’s kinda hazy Sleep through the whole damn day! If you don’t face it, you’ll always chase it Your monkey’s here to stay Now you’re cryin’ on your beggin knees Shakes got you down on the floor But, you got it, it’s a dirty disease It burns you right to the core, core core I hear a wild cry A wild cry in the night I hear a wild cry Cryin’ out in the night I hear a wild cry A wild cry in the night I hear a wild cry Cryin’ out in the night Night (x13)!

Runnin' 04:16
Runnin You say one thing, but you mean another I’ve seen you steal from your only brother But, once you’ve met the maker, you’ll have no choice He’ll make you stand and hear the voice Now you see no other way The path you chose, lead you astray And now you keep on runnin’ You’ll never stop becomin’ The things your eyes could never see If you don’t stop to face it Your life’s become forsaken Stop your runnin’ then you’re free You come to me with your open arms I’m no the savior no, no lucky charm The past is over, and your outta time It’s time to reckon with your brainwashed mind Now you see no other way The path you chose, lead you astray And now you keep on runnin’ You’ll never stop becomin’ The things your eyes could never see If you don’t stop to face it Your life’s become forsaken Stop your runnin’ then you’re free You say one thing, but you mean another I’ve seen you steal from your only brother But, once you’ve met the maker, you’ll have no choice He’ll make you stand and hear the voice And now you keep on runnin’ You’ll never stop becomin’ The things your eyes could never see If you don’t stop to face it Your life’s become forsaken Stop your runnin’ then you’re free And now you keep on runnin’ You’ll never stop becomin’ The things your eyes could never see If you don’t stop to face it Your life’s become forsaken Stop your runnin’ then you’re free

about

ATTICA began in 1987 in Minneapolis, Mommisota by bassist Glenn Bogan who would go through several players before solidifying a line-up with guitarist Steve Rooker, drummer Chris Hallet and vocalist Rexx Dean in ‘89.

In September of that year, ATTICA would book session time at Logic Studios with producer/engineer and DARE FORCE guitarist Brian Bart to record their debut album ‘Wild Cry’. The following year on February 6th, 1990 “WIld Cry '' was released to an eagerly awaiting fanbase that ATTICA had been building up over a previous couple of years though nonstop gigging in the Twin Cities area. Several shows would follow in support of the newly released album sharing the stage with other such contemporaries as DIRTY LOOKS, NITRO, HERICANE ALICE and SLAVE RAIDER.

An additional guitarist would be added to the line-up that would be short-lived and other personnel changes would continue until the band finally calling it quits in 1991. Over the next 30-years, members of ATTICA would occasionally reunite in various line-ups. A second album entitled ‘Hell to Pay’ would even be released.
