about

Deadly Boards Games is a bicoastal band. Before founding member Dan Paquin moved to the west coast in 2010, DBG recorded these 11 songs in one weekend at Beauty Hill Studio in Barrington, New Hampshire. The songs were then further massaged at Dan's home studio. Only took another couple of years to find the right person (Ryan Yurada) to mix and master the tracks and give them that extra shine.

Track Name: Where You Belong
I wouldn't try if I were you
When you get up where you belong
You won't be up there for long

I've made up my mind so get a clue
When you get up where you belong
You won't be up there for long

I wouldn't try if I were you
I've made up my mind so get a clue
When you get up where you belong
You won't be up there for long
Track Name: See it Through
You've got the perfect kind of face
Perfectly innocent I'd say
We're all capable of things that our faces don't betray

And on any given day
You can be caught quite unaware
What was comfort turns to pain with a cold and guilty stare

But I fought for us
I fought for you
When the chips were down and scattered
And I thought I knew what mattered and
We'd see it through

You told me that you felt sick
And in the very next breath
You had met somebody else
And you could not hide the fact

You told me that you were confused
Just like some bad sitcom line
It doesn't matter, doesn't matter
'Cause I know that I'll be fine

But I fought for us
I fought for you
When the chips were down and scattered
And I thought I knew what mattered and
We'd see it through

And so you, you let me go
And that's the way that it went
Maybe you didn't know
That over means over means over
It's really over

You've got the perfect kind of face
The kind that I cannot replace
And if I could you know I would not take back
The time I spent with you

Chorus
Track Name: Hangman
Chorus:
We're playing hangman yeah
Every time we meet
Filling in the blanks
It can be dangerous
Hangman yeah
Every time we meet
Filling in the blanks
Like laying dynamite

There's a white flag flying
Waving in the breeze
That doesn't mean
That this is over
Now you send your best man under cover
Every moment counts
This code needs breaking

Chorus

Now boys will be boys
Girls will do what they do
Epic battles play in the smallest moments
Do you bury your head further in the sand
Do you stick out your neck?
I might get broken

Oh! How do we achieve...
That's one thing that we...
Oh! a certain peace?
That's one thing that we need.

Chorus
Track Name: Take me Anywhere
This is how the worker sings
Ah ah!
This is how the worker sings in his head, in his head.
This is how the worker sings
Ah ah!
At his desk
At the screen
Staring off into space…
This is how the worker sings
Ah ah!

Chorus:
Take me anywhere
Take me home
Take me anywhere
Take me out
Take me anywhere
I don’t care at all
Just get me out of here

This is how the worker sings
Ah ah!
This is how the worker sings in his head, in his head.
This is how the worker sings
Ah ah!
Construction site
At a hault
Just step off
And take the fall
This is how the worker sings
Ah ah!

Chorus
Bridge
Chorus
Track Name: Breakdown
Now you know
Everything that lies
Cold as snow
Underneath this night
You’d take the blame
If it could make me whole
It’s my shame
To carry on my own

Chorus:
I can barely face myself
In the mirror every day

Now the sun
Shining everyday
Can’t see the light
And I can’t find a way
I can’t let go
But I can’t hold on
Now that’s the contradiction
My addiction
Bottom’s up and blown

Chorus:
I can barely face myself
In the mirror every day
But it’s my life
It’s my pain
It’s my face
It’s myself that I don’t know

It’s my life
Track Name: Control Your Anger
Control Your Anger

All that phony strength you had
Swinging bats and breaking necks
The truth is out and now you’re leaking
Plug the holes but keep on sinking!

Chorus:
Control your anger
The lion’s loose now bring him back, yeah
Control your anger
The lion’s loose now bring him back you say

Windows to the soul and sixth sense
These things can be quite a mess
How does a person handle it?

Chorus

Bridge:
And oh these eyes these crying eyes
And oh these times these trying times
And all I do is think of you

Break

Chorus
Track Name: Guillotine
Guillotine

When the guillotine drops
You’re gonna lose your mind
When the big blade falls
You’re gonna lose your eyes
When the needle drops
You’re gonna lose your senses
When the guillotine falls
You’re gonna bleed your menses

Chorus:
Ah ah! Let ‘em all eat cake!
Ah ah! Let ‘em all eat cake!
Then make me some more!

When the guillotine falls
You’re gonna lose your mind
When the big blade falls
You’re gonna lose your sight
When the needle drops
You’re gonna lose your senses

Chorus
Break
Chorus
Track Name: What Matters Most
What Matters Most

If you leave
You can take the money
If you leave
You can take the house
If you leave
You can take the TV
If you leave
No more cat and mouse

Chorus:
‘Cause you can never have
The thing that matters most
And you can never take
The thing that really counts
That really counts

If you leave
You can take the pictures
If you leave
You might get the ring
Lie awake
When you take that empty bed
I won’t be there
To quiet what’s in your head

Chorus
Outro
Track Name: I Finally Know Myself
I Finally Know Myself

Do you remember
Everything that happens
In your life?
Is your brain like a hard drive?
Or a greatest hits collection?
Some things you will dismiss, like…

Everything I’ve known
Everything I’ve felt
I am
I am

Now I remember
Everything that happened
New year’s day
Lost my grip upon this plain
Would you say I went insane?
Or that it makes sense?

With everything I’ve known
Everything I’ve felt
I am
I am

Oh I know
I know
Myself
Track Name: Bonnie Blue
Through these eyes that see you
You are looking at your favorite part of me
You sparkle like the sun that's glinting
Off the surface of the water
I am swimming in it
Diving into the deep pool of our love
Diving under seeing beauty
Seeing all the beauty of our love

Hold on to this feeling for as long
We can hold each other
It goes on and on and on...

Let's make it how we've made it
Cross the bridge that takes me
Straight to your heart
Building on the the building of how
Every day falls into the next one
You'll take me to where I take you
We are taken with each other
Diving under seeing beauty
Seeing all the beauty of our love
Track Name: How it Ends
You can’t look me in the eye
And tell me it’s alright
It’s a promise lying broken now
If you could take it back
But then again you can’t
In spite of all we had and lost

Chorus:
This is how it ends
You’re giving back the ring
This is how it ends
And there’s nothing I can do

It’s not the how or why
That’s of consequence in time
We don’t know how it all plays out

And when you look inside
The wound may grow or die
The difference is hard to know without hindsight

Chorus
Break
