about

The Rare Occasions Boston, Massachusetts

Along with a mutual distaste for Grecian urns, The Rare Occasions share a passion for sticky melodies and unconventional rhythms. Of course, this doesn't come without the usual side-effects. Between endless bouts with rockular socksofficitis, these douchebags fill the concert halls of America with some conspicuously gnarly sounds. ... more

Track Name: Battin' Lashes
I saw you in the evening sun
You weren't afraid of anyone
The sky was painted out of phase
So count the words; so drown the haze

I saw you in the evening sun
You weren't afraid of anyone
The sky was painted out of phase
So count the words; so drown the haze

Lying on the road as whispers pierce the clouds above
You've got to stay
You got to stay
'Cause I've been thinking about you each and every day

Overcast and dreaming all tumultuously
Take it all back because I saw the sun inside
Saw every little thing you left behind

Deliria beneath the skin
Those flightless eyes are sinking in
So tell the floor; so tell the walls
It takes the climb to learn to fall

Deliria beneath the skin
Those flightless eyes are sinking in
So tell the floor; so tell the walls
It takes the climb to learn to fall

Lying on the road as whispers pierce the clouds above
You've got to stay
You got to stay
'Cause I've been thinking about you each and every day

Overcast and dreaming all tumultuously
Take it all back because I saw the sun inside
Saw every little thing you left behind

Don't try and convince me sweetly; let me collapse completely, babe
As warm as a plate of ashes, we were just battin' lashes, babe
From over your shoulder you could feel me adore you
You could feel me adore you, girl, from over your shoulder
We were trembling softly by the shore - it's something in those eyes

So light it up and show the way
'Cause I've been thinking about you each and every day
Those little words will have to stay
Because of all you had to say

Lying on the road as whispers pierce the clouds above
You've got to stay
You got to stay
'Cause I've been thinking about you each and every day

Overcast and dreaming all tumultuously
Take it all back because I saw the sun inside
Saw every little thing you left behind
Track Name: Miss Mary Mack
Miss Mary Mack
All dressed in black
With silver buttons
All down her back

She took the train
Past Driscoll Lane
To spill the blood that
Swiftly runs through idle veins

And with her knife
To sink the strife
She looked him straight into the eye
And took his life

Yea it was so hard to find
The one she had in mind
The one that tripped her fantasy
She took her money off the salsa line
And put it in the butchery

And she was so overjoyed
That she found her little toy
They've got to take her away
While there's still time

So as his mind slipped away
It conjured up the day
He first laid eyes upon her skin
Oh she was smitten she was so divine
And with a smile she drew him in

But now she's spat in his face
And turned the tides without a trace
They've got to take her away
While there's still time

Yea it was so hard to find
The one she had in mind
The one that tripped her fantasy
She took her money off the salsa line
And put it in the butchery

And she was so overjoyed
That she found her little toy
They've got to take her away
While there's still time
Track Name: Scarlet Lies
“Fine!” she said, “I'm going away.”
“You'd better pack those bags” was all I could say.
By the time I'd changed my mind
She was a figment, a dream,
As sad as it seems, so gone.

Lies! Lies!

So with an emptiness inscribed
You must avert those sorrow eyes,
For not a willow wept until the night you left
And a penultimate kiss don't taste as fervent as this, my love.

Beneath a sun that shines so bright,
Or as we're waltzing through the night
On top of cobblestones, those silent tones
Could paint a picture of you in the evening dew, alone.

Lies! Lies!

And I was wrong to dance so slow,
But I needed time to realize just where to go.

In the search to find the flower for you
I came across a poet or two.
Scarlet lies dripped from their eyes,
So take it from me, how bad could it be, my love?
I said take it from me, how bad could it be, my love?
Track Name: Getaway
You and I, we were lost in the shadows
You got me thinking I won't make it to tomorrow
You stole my mind
Wash the hands, count the spots on the ceiling
Leave it feeling all aligned

(ooh) And I shouldn't have to check the door
(ooh) Eleven times before I fall asleep and
(ooh) You got me walking to the second floor
Up, down, chase back stop and let me fall into the deep

What can I do?
What can I do?
To get away from you
What can I do?
To get away from
You


What can I do?
To get away from you
What can I do?
To get away from
You

When it's over they'll wring out all my bones
For lost is not as lost as we thought it was
And found's not as found
As that sickened soup that drips before the dawn

I don't need the word to say I know
I don't need the word to say I know

To get away from
You
Track Name: Silhouettes
Gingerly our silhouettes walk parallel
Beneath a sea of desperate electric energy
And in spite of my greatest resistance
The feeling is marked with persistence
I'm drowning in your existence
Cascading about, we will soon figure out that we're
Aimlessly pacing the streets just to be together

I'll write you a thunderstorm
So forlorn it echoes and
Shatters everything you fear
You're too dear to let go

Fervent clouds; through bleary eyes and weary minds we
Think aloud as distant reflections pass us by
And with you, girl, my mind's in a clamor
Resonant words are but stammers
I think I just might be enamored
Its times like these that I notice the breeze is
Drifting 'round like two souls drifting around tonight

Streetlights cut through the night mist
A light kiss: extinguish
The fire building inside me
Just guide me to your lips and

I'll write you a thunderstorm
So forlorn it echoes and
Shatters everything you fear
You're too dear to let go

If all of the earth were to disappear
I'd still be walking around with you here
Dreaming of darkness far away
Just relay your smile
