about

Kill Chicago Fredericton, New Brunswick

THE GREY, Kill Chicago’s first full length album is the culmination of ten years of performing, and a life’s worth of experiencing the mixed blessings of the Maritimes. Songwriter Greg Webber (vocals/guitar) grew up in Fredericton, New Brunswick. He’s seen friends and family make that tough decision, familiar to all Maritimers, to look for work out West. THE GREY embodies those experiences. ... more

Track Name: The Grey
Step back, I bet you never do,
Anything you’re not supposed to.
But I hear you love him in your sleep.

Why do I always have to drink,
Until I fall down. You begin to think.
I’ve gone and married him again.

The Greener Grass
The things we pass.

Don’t you think that I deserve some space
Inside the grey where most of life takes place
We can’t all afford to be free.

It all seemed like a pretty good deal
No one got hurt cuz the bullets weren’t real
And I let another pass by.
Track Name: Sharing Space
Something I forgot to say,
And now it’s someone else’s turn.
You leave no air inside the room,
And you couldn’t even burn.

And you feel so bad and been called a
Whole lotta names.
The bridge that separates our world
Couldn’t be made of something less.

Giving up giving up on your love today
Giving up giving up on your love.
Giving up giving up on your love today
Giving up giving up…

Cut short by a sudden glance
and then I, trun and slip away.
Not sure if I saw what I saw,
Or heard what I heard.

And you feel so bad and been called a
Whole lotta names.
There’s no corner of this town,
That our past mistakes will save.
Track Name: Sweetest Voice
I let the sweetest voice, sell me some bullshit
About my lack of choice, now you see that’s just it.
Now I’m on a plan that I know won’t fit. (no break)

Targets and wedding gowns, I’m not supposed to
Aim High and watch the sky, but you’re addicted to,
The way things smell when they are new.

I’m disguised as someone you might stand beside.
And you’re disguised as someone I might stand beside.

Head down and carry on, as if I want to
Leave it all in the air, and throw it back to you
And swallow the words I can’t seem to chew.
Track Name: Take the City
They said “Hose em’ down”
Keep the fires low
Make them Pay,
For what they don’t know

In summer heat,
Bring them to their knees
Ain’t worth a thing
If it is free

My city, your city, their city is not what they think it’s made of

Wind them up,
Send them out the door
Pay it back
In ten years or more

But it does no good,
To have them on the street.
Being served a black coffee,
By a master’s degree, to me to me to me

My city, your city, their city is not what they think it’s made of

Take the City, back into the ground
My heart is in need of a won’t back down
Take the City, back into the ground
My heart is in need of a won’t back down
Track Name: Count to Ten
Hold me, feel the way I do when you leave
Keep me, inside your mind when you come home and wake me from a dream.

Fear me, trust me play the way I do and feel the earth move, count to 10 and bah ba ba dah

Steal this, let those words comfort you and fill you
Up. Lean, on me when those words fail and you are brought down to your knees.

Fear me, trust me play the way I do and feel the earth move, count to 10 and bah ba ba dah
Track Name: Work to Live
Same reason,
another season,
heading back to where things are good

Though I say it,
I don’t believe it,
I wouldn’t bring you if I could

I don’t want where I live to work,
I just want to work where I live.

Gold ticket,
I’m addicted,
Heading back to an angry home

You don’t know me,
Well I don’t know you,
Everything I did for us.

Oh I’m getting too old to spend the time in a plane
Just to come through the door and fight with you
But what’s a man supposed to do
It’s either live out there, or die back here.
Track Name: Heartache to Heartache
I can’t see this lasting that long anyway.
Just sit tight and nod your head okay.
Take a step back, wade in.
Keeping your name hid.
Selling old news, bury your head in the sand.

There’s no room for doubt in your mind today.
But it took so long to plan it so why not stay
Take an old friend, and a new world
Put it all on a new girl.
Sharing old news, bury your head in the sand.

Oh we got to get on with each other
And we got to believe in another
Oh we got to high off each other
And we got to get over each other.

Heartache to heartache,
What shape are you in?
At first I felt bad,
How did you break in?
Labels and packing,
Do you need a hand?
Heartache to Heartache
What shape are you in?
Track Name: Bend
Gone are the days that last so long
When you could do no wrong
I spent them by myself
And wondered how we made it out.

Alive, and now I’ve tried it on.
I wonder how it’d feel
To never take it off?
I get bored and loose the charm

I don’t mean to look
It becomes a stare
Keep myself away
You don’t even care
The effort that I make,
The armour that I wear
Is breaking down.

I may Bend, but I won’t break,
the great deflector of what you can’t take
I may bitch, and I may moan,
But I promise you baby, I’m coming home.

Try like a kid to keep it new
Say I can play in tune
And never question when all this luck
Will end for you.

And say that those things I said are true
What would that say to you?
Can we pretend that
I am more like I see myself
