about

Singer-songwriter Corey Distler has co-written five albums with the likes of Zinnie for Short, The Martyrs and The Sun-birds (where he met drummer Max Lilien). Dead Men Talking represents the first group in which he is the sole front man. Alongside long-time friends Max Lilien (The Fourth Wall, Southern Belle) and multi-instrumentalist Casey Becker (Project Eldridge), the music comes to life. At once it brings to mind classic bands of the 60's and 70's, but upon a closer listen reveals a modern twist that references indie rock and hints at Distler's music studies at Portland State University. Their first release is a dynamic 4-track EP that brings to life a bittersweet journey through a foreign land and the love that inspired it.

Track Name: Lord Knows I Don't Care
I'll lay in the rain, but don't wait up for me I'm yours
melt into a storm drain, wash into the ocean
forever to be rising on your shore

Lord knows I don't care where I go if I'm with
Lord knows I don't care
Lord knows I don't care where I go as long as I'm with you
I don't care

Now I'm the rain, while others hide their heads your mine
soak into your jacket, nestle in the fabric
happy just to catch you in my storm
so happy to have caught you in my storm

Lord knows you don't care where I go if I'm with
Lord knows you don't care
Lord knows you don't care where I go as long as I'm with you
You don't

Careful what you wish for
don't you know you'll miss more than you think
That's what they say
but they all stayed

So use it as kindling, as a beginning
something new that burns alone
You'll find your home within yourself
and wander places only time will tell
We'll wander places only time will tell

Lord knows I don't care where I go if I'm with
Lord knows I don't care
Lord knows I don't care where I go as long as I'm with
Lord knows

Lord knows I don't care where I go if I'm with
Lord knows I don't care
Lord knows I don't care where I go as long as I'm with you
I don't care
Track Name: Lost Don't Mean a Thing
Neon lights remind me of a place long past
where tiny memories go waltzing in the moonlight
and warm flickering gas lights illuminate the dark hall
where lovers come to get lost

So burn the map and let your heart guide your feet
The weather's fine, the neon sun's aglow
so let the liquor soak up your sorrow
'cuz there 'aint no use in wondering 'bout tomorrow

When we get back home we'll buy a truck with peeling paint
fill it with what we need and find a place that feels right
and go waltzing in the moonlight

You're not loosing if lost don't mean a thing
You're only falling into the unkown
So run on into the night
and don't stop to say goodbye
Track Name: Dead Man Talking
Dead man talking

The walk was long with our big packs
but we caught the train on it's way down the tracks
It was a pretty short ride to the heart of Spain
and just a six block walk to the place we were staying

Couldn't get a hold of Antonio
we even tried yelling through the kitchen window
but the music was turned up way too loud
so we had to keep yelling til the man finally came around

Dead man talking

So he opened up the door and he gave us some beer
I think his friends had been drinking since late last year
They did lines off the table trying to kill the sun
as that sweet soul music played on and on
until hours later, when the battle was won

Dead man talking
on and on
until hours later
when the sun had come
Track Name: You're a Million Miles Away
Sometimes you're a million miles away
I wouldn't mind, except I have to stay
here all alone just trying to find a way to get on through
Next time won't you please take me with you

'Cuz I don't know where we'll be when we're older
but I hope I'm with you
When the days get colder
I'll be thinking of you

Springtime you'll be headed back to school
To the city and a life that's big and new
Well make the most of it babe, I'll try to do the same
but when you go won't you please come back again
