about

"Soultube" is Robby Baier's debut solo album. After returning from 10 years in Berlin, Germany, where he was the front man for the Rock Band "Pearls At Swine" (BMG Ariola), Robby recorded the entire album by himself in his green barn (Green House Studio). With the exception of a couple of drum tracks, Robby played all the instruments. I was hailed by critics (check his website for more info) and won him "Best New Pop/Rock Song" for "Whiskey Whiskey" at the Independent Music Awards. Several of the tracks ended up in Films and TV shows.

Track Name: Seriously
SERIOUSLY
don't look for me,baby, I'm going out driving
your stuff is so heavy, baby, I'm barely surviving
you've got the fire that's so hard to handle
you pull out your gun and baby, then you blow out the candle
I can taste it, you're raw

are you seriously more than just into me?

don't look for me, baby, I'm still out driving
can't make no rhyme or reason of your slipping and sliding
so comfortably rude, I know, baby, you're raw
I sit behind my wheel and I know I ain't gonna get that far
cause I love you, I love you,
you're raw

are you seriously more than just into me?

when I'm back on your street
on your doorstep and we meet
in the hall I will see if you still are
like the one in my car
with a gun to my heart
or if you understood
what you're doing to this man
what you're doing to this man

are you seriously more than just into me?
Track Name: Right On Track
RIGHT ON TRACK
if you want this man to go
with all his things on out the door
well you're right on track, baby
cause all you do the live long day
is suck on the tube and wait for me
well you're right on track, baby
yes you're right on track baby

we're near the end
now it's just a matter of time
oh you're right on track, baby

if you want to be alone
with your needle and your crooked spoon
well you're right on track, baby
cause I won't stand for another day
feeling sorry for your sorry fate
oh you're right on track baby

we're near the end...

baby, baby
it's just a matter of time

(in a single bed, somewhere in my head
you're slipping through my mind, but you're so hard to find
in a single year, in between the tears
you've been slipping from my mind, but you were so hard to find
we're at the end of the line, there will be no more signs
it's just a matter of time now)

we're near the end
now it's just a matter of time
oh you're right on track, baby...
Track Name: Anchorage
ANCHORAGE
sailing an ocean of you, your spray is on my skin
and the flags on my mast are flying high again
in my sailor's attire I should search the view for shores
but up there on deck with a fin I dance between the ores
sailing an ocean of you

anchorage, I found anchorage
I've been adrifting alone for a long long time
anchorage, you're my anchorage
it's funny, but I don't mind the waves this time
(sailing an ocean of you)

sailing an ocean of you I never call my friends (no more)
I bathe in the wake of your waves and all the rest descends
into the pull of your tides where all is green and blue
sailing an ocean of you

anchorage, I found anchorage
I've been adrifting alone for a long long time
anchorage, you're my anchorage
it's funny, but I don't mind the waves this time
(sailing an ocean of you)
Track Name: Weeping Eyes
WEEPING EYES
hey babies, don't you worry
I'm behind the wheel
Big Daddy got you covered
you know the drill
start walking down the strip
and get your boys to pay
we've got to score tonight
and it's getting late
yeah the streets are rough
yeah, ain't much room for love

how I wish that we could ride the morning train
make it swiftly down the tracks and start again
but as it is it's tough enough just to get by
and it's so hard to see
through weeping eyes

hey babies hand them over
pass on the bills
Big Daddy gonna score now,
get us some pills
yeah the streets are rough
yeah, ain't much room for love

how I wish that we could ride the morning train
make it swiftly down the tracks and start again
but as it is it's tough enough just to get by
and it's so hard to see
through weeping eyes
Track Name: In My Car
HERE COMES HER MAN
there's so many ways how you can tell that she's
no ordinary girl
she's sitting on the street like she's got someone to meet
oh, she knows just what she's worth
I'm sitting with my cup in a back street coffee shop
and I'm looking at her through the glass

but here comes her man
and he's looking good in his beetle boots
and I'm wondering if she's happy now
that here comes her man
just when I'm starting to believe it's me she suits
and I'm wondering if she's happy now
here comes her man

it's times like these when I wish time would freeze
cause I could look at her all day
but she's a wanted girl and I won't get no turn
and now he's taking her away
I'm stuck here with my cup in the back street coffee shop
and she's looking at me through the glass

but here comes her man
and he's looking good in his beetle boots
and I'm wondering if she's happy now
that here comes her man
just when I'm starting to believe it's me she suits
and I'm wondering if she's happy now
here comes her man
Track Name: Dead End
DEAD END
this is where she used to stand
her body a special in a close-out sale.
and the guys still drive on by
slow like a crawl
in their four wheel jails.
but she won't come around here no more
'cause her blood spilled on satin
soon she'll be forgotten.

here it comes
here it falls
love and all
it's a dead, dead end.

it's a question of intent
when the cut in your life line
becomes too hard to mend.
but if there was substance to desire
slightly diluted I'd heat it and shoot it.

here it comes
here it falls
love and all
it's a dead, dead end.
Track Name: Warning Signs
WARNING SIGNS
I used to have a woman
for many a year I used to kiss her feet
but now she's with another
and I'm in the cafe across the street
and I'm still in love
yes I'm still in love with her

signs, its the warning signs
guess I must have missed them
somewhere down the line
signs, its the warning signs
coffee tastes like mud
without her by my side

I go and ask the waitress
"now what's he got that I ain't got down to a T?
now I ain't used to crying
so if you could would you come and comfort me?
cause I'm still in love
yes I'm still in love with her"

signs, its the warning signs
guess I must have missed them
somewhere down the line
signs, its the warning signs
coffee tastes like shit
without her by my side
Track Name: Room In My Chevy
ROOM IN MY CHEVY
she had 666 riding on her shoulder
and there was blood on this dirty street up in North Dakota
it's all right, it's all right
you just toss your praying beads aside
I got some room in my chevy for you
hitchhiker

I found a 22 as I was looking her over
I found it sitting down deep in her boot
and I bet she knew how to hold her
its all right, it's all right
I didn't mean to make a grown girl cry
I got some room in my chevy for you
hitchhiker

its all right, it's all right
I didn't mean to make a grown girl cry
I got some room in my chevy for you
hitchhiker
Track Name: Friend For Life
FRIEND FOR LIFE
if your eyes should fail
i will lead you home
and if bad winds should prevail
I will try and calm your storm
for I was born to be friend for life
oh little sister don’t you cry

I have seen your light
and I have stood next to your power
and as these days unfold
you will bud into a flower
and I’ll still be your friend for life
oh little sister, don’t you cry
little sister, don’t you cry
