You can die alone
You can go your own way
You can leave us all any day
It's up to you

Or you can write a song
La dee-da dee-dum bidda-day
You can find your voice and say
What you want it to

I know it's hard to be
Locked up in misery
You've never felt as free as me

You can stay at home
You can chain your doorway
Live in terror and pray
While you watch the tube

Or you can write a song
Float it down a hallway
Drift into the doorway
Of someone new

I know it's hard to see
Me live effortlessly
You've never reached this frequency

But you can die alone
Turn yourself to stone
Lay in bed and moan
Don't pick up that phone (la la la la)

Or you can make each day your own and play...

Come and play every day after day after day
After day after day after day after day
After day after day after day after day
After day after day after day after day
After day after day after day after day...

You can die alone
(la la la la)
You can go your own way
(la la la la)

Named after a legendary home town ice cream parlor, The Bischoffs consists of 4 Teaneck High School alumni who have known each for almost 20 years: Amit Wehle, Aaron Wolfe, Jacob White and songwriter David Heatley. The band prides itself on their raw, portable sound and the wide ranging style of songs in their repertoire—equal parts hip hop, punk and “anti- folk." Photo: Jonathan Elderfield. ... more
