about

Prepare for liftoff. Rocktronica Rules kicks into gear from the very first note and doesn't let go. Listen closely and you might even laugh along the way. Enjoy your flight!

Four years in the making, this is the third Tribrix Album. The first one to feature mostly original tracks. The music is all upbeat, but hits different genres and moods along the way. Lyrics are at times angry, funny, and thought provoking and the music follows suit. Don't take our word for it, sample for yourself with no risk at all.

The other Tribrix albums can be found on Amazon.com, CDBaby.com, iTunes, and most other online retailers.

Track Name: Free of You (Bye Frenemy Mix)
It happened so many times, before our bonding melt
You took all advantage, no care how I felt

Now I am free of you and care less what you say
Now on my own and you don't get your way

After school and at the mall, all the time we spent
Sipping Frapaccinos, everywhere we went

You were my best friend the one who always had my back Who knew you'd pull out a knife and there start your attack.

Doing all your bidding was awful don't you know
but the truth of you came out, when I gave you a no

Now I am free of you and care less what you say
Now on my own and you don't get your way

You were my best friend the one who always had my back Who knew you'd pull out a knife and there start your attack.

(spoken) I trusted you so much, and gave into you each time. I can get past your control, get better, sure. But I'll never get back all those hours I wasted and I'll never forgive you for that. But now, at least I'm free of you.
Track Name: Save Me from It
lyrics:

I got the car I always wanted, the one in my dream
Now the debt and insurance cause me to want to scream

I don’t know what I want
I don’t know what to take
I don’t know what I want
Please save me from it

I got a job that most would kill for but to be honest with you
Things aren’t as great as you might think, no chance for love and friends are few

I don’t know what I want
I don’t know what to make
I don’t know what I want
Please save me from it

I had the most beautiful girl that I had ever seen
We planned to go down the isle together but then she cheated on me.

I don’t know what I want
I don’t know who to date
I don’t know what I want
Please save me from it
Track Name: (no subject)
lyrics:

You were once the half of me
I was once your man to be
You left home a pool of pain
My eyes worked out like the rain
You turned out just like Holly
But I never went to Tiffany's
I said bye, did not object
You emailed with no subject

Chorus:
Dinners were great
Before my hate
I could see just you
Before we knew
We had a life
Before your knife
Drew from my heart
For your depart

I said bye, did not object
You emailed with no subject

You said you were not ready
to have this life, the one with me
I said bye, gave you wings
to move on to other things
Yet here you are, on my screen
Email, no subject, make me scream
Hear me now, let me go
Your own seed sow

On my own for all this time,
not happy buy doing fine
working hard but playing much
No time to think of you and such
Your cruelty is in my past
It was fading oh-so-fast
I wonder why you bother me
Just let me be.

Chorus
Track Name: Crush
lyrics:

I remember that day
When we walked in the rain
Asked me to carry your books
Thus began my long pain

Was only from afar
The want you inspire
I can keep a secret
Never shared my desire

Crush
You are my crush
Why do you crush
Why do you crush . . . me

You are one I can't look past, Belle struck in my heart a mast
I bow to you first and last, scorn the role which I was cast

The pit that bleeds so long
in me, unquenched and deep
The thing that makes it hard
To wake, and on time, keep

Like lead I drag behind
I hardly harbor hope
This feeling like a noose
With my heart on the rope

Crush
You are my crush
Why do you crush
Why do you crush . . . me

You are one I can't look past, Belle struck in my heart a mast
I bow to you first and last, scorn the role which I was cast

At school I see you here
And there with friends smiling
and I'd cry if I could
But tears are beguiling

You can't make me feel worse
'Cause I'm already there
And the worst of it all
Is knowing you don't care

Crush
You are my crush
Why do you crush
Why do you crush . . . me

You are one I can't look past, Belle struck in my heart a mast
I bow to you first and last, scorn the role which I was cast

Here is the funny thing
Can't imagine success
To think of you with me
Is a folly excess

But in the light of day
Or darkest hour night
Nothing more do I want
Whether it's wrong or right
Track Name: Vice
lyrics:

Never served the country I proclaim to love
When in comes blood, I'm a hawk not a dove
I’m a little brat, can’t call me out
Like a sewer rat, you won’t see about
My heart’s in the right place, but don’t work so well
but I made it this far so what the hell
Love to watch people moan and squirm
Plead for your life you terrorist worm

I'm the head of vice, but not so bright
One of the little mice, too afraid to fight
I'm the head of vice, but not so nice
You stay in your place or I'll shoot you in the face

Have you an idea, just who I am
the scared bully, not wolf but a lamb
When I was a kid I figured out a way
To avoid the rules at times of play
now that I am grown, it’s much the same
Except that people die, when I play my game
I’m a miserable man, you can see in my smile
Once you are bound, just give me a while

I'm the head of vice, but not so bright
One of the little mice, too afraid to fight
I'm the head of vice, but not so nice
You stay in your place or I'll shoot you in the face

If the tables turned, subject to my means
You’d watch me cry as I spilled the beans
Such is the way, for the scared, like us
When we are able, we torture and fuss
Looking inside, you’d likely find,
A frightened girl, out of her mind
Yes, a frightened little girl is what I am,
When the planes came in, you saw how I ran

I'm the head of vice, but not so bright
One of the little mice, too afraid to fight
I'm the head of vice, but not so nice
You stay in your place or I'll shoot you in the face
Track Name: He Hates
lyrics:

He hates your piety
expressed in hypocracy
A trinity of the blind
working as a single mind

You love him
But what is he
He is love
But what is love

He hates your certainty
It's a baffling insanity
A thing you cannot comprehend
Yet you deem to speak for him

You love him
But what is he
He is love
But what is love

He hates your zelotry
Just a guise for bigotry
Of course I'm equally hated
For all I've here, intimated

You love him
But what is he
He is love
But what is love
Track Name: Mondai To (問題と) (solo mix)
lyrics:

トリプヘ
行きましょか

じんせいは
難しです


電話で
聞きましょか


音楽は
同じです


問題と
行きますね


じんせいは
愉しいです

a translation from the Japanese:

Shall we go on a trip

Life is difficult

Shall we listen to the telephone

The music is the same

Problems go with you, right?

Life is fun
Track Name: I Don't Wanna' Fight
lyrics:

Promised me so many things
but you hide the light, whatever it brings
Open your mouth and people die
There's fire in your breath, when you lie

I never bought into your stupid ****
you got a problem with that, I'll take the hit
You're such a **** you smirking killer
Deploy your boys and sip a Miller

I don't wanna' fight, but I'll kill you
I don't mind dyin' to see you cryin'
I don't wanna' fight, but I'll kill you

Couldn't cut it in reality
So you live your life in a fantasy
Good and bad you can't even tell
Oh my god, it's just as well

Give me a gun, I know what to do
Watch you run, not even a clue
The sheep were fooled, you deceived them
Times were better, not now, but then

People will die, because you lie
You've nothing to give, and we wanna' live
People will die, because you lie

Had enough of you effing *****s
Look at my face and I'll give you some more
Stop your whining, come out to play
'Cause you won't make it not another day

You're such a loser, laugh when you go
Sharp as a spoon, you don't even know
And you are, afraid of me
It's so right, you should be

Confession time has come to pass
I'm not getting up, off my ass
I'm a total wuss, I cannot lie
Feel guilty when I kill a fly

You're totally safe from people like me
Unless we're speaking, politically
So go ahead, kill and maim
We will all, remember your name
Track Name: Wet Seat
lyrics:

She says she likes it fast
But you can’t believe her
She tells me to floor it
Though I'm inclined to leave her

Despite how I feel
I give in to her will
but the benefit for me I see
Is little next to nill

She begged me for a ride,
but I didn't want to go
Had a rough day at school
I just it let go, you know
I put the stick in overdrive
And gave it all my best
Not sure what she wanted
I know it wasn’t rest

She was in her highest whine
pulling round the curve
Thinking of her later
I think she lost her nerve

I’d done what I could do
And it had been a thrill
sometimes things can overflow
leading to a spill

Sticky black leather
It should light my fire
thinking what I have to clean
Makes smiling me, a liar

We never spoke again,
what happened on that day
I wish things were different
That she hadn't got her way

She begged me for a ride,
but I didn't want to go
Had a rough day at school
I just it let go, you know
I put the stick in overdrive
And gave it all my best
Not sure what she wanted
I know it wasn’t rest
