about

The Electric West Los Angeles, California

2013, The Electric West formed in Echo Park with the goal of pummeling dance beats, punctuated melodies and sympathetic crooning. The duo of Byron Pagdilao, Lee Lewallen, with the help of friends, alternates currents of contemporary political angst and a cold, metallic stare at our nation’s past. Intensely charged, The Electric West channels gripping themes to create a vibrant post punk sound. ... more

Track Name: Who's Big Enough
You need a hero. You need someone to set that sun. You need a hero now.
Not Any hero knows that I'm unstoppable, I'm unstoppable. Not any hero knows.
And it's impossible. Like I said, I'm unstoppable.
So who's your hero? Who's big enough to fill those shoes. Who's your hero now? So who's your hero? Who's big enough to fill those shoes. Who's your hero now?
What's this thing you put in front of me? Don't you know I can climb anything?What's this thing you put in front of me? Don't you know I can climb anything?
Who's the bad guy now? Who's the bad guy now?
What's this thing you put in front of me? Don't you know I can climb anything?
Who's the bad guy now? Who's the bad guy now?
Track Name: Windows
You had your book of spells.
We didn't know better.
We gathered the firewood
and we went looking for you
with our pitchforks.
We we're looking for you.

You fell right off of the broom
and that's how we found you.
We took you to the middle of town
and we were watching you
from our windows
and we were watching you…

You're the one, You're going to dance in the fire tonight.
You're the one time we got it right.
You're the one you're going to fly through the sky tonight
and we'll be watching you from our windows...
Track Name: Surf Ninjas
I'll tell you what I know about the world,
the empires overthrown.
Our sorrow sitting idly by,
we shot our guns into the sky.
I saw her sitting idly by,
"Do you want to die?"

Is this really the end, what did you do with my summer?
Can we really depend on burning rubber?
If you're going to stand up, don't stand up for me.

This is for your homeland, this is for the mouths you feed.
Track Name: What Happened in '68
They went to Memphis in May, just missed MLK, in '68.
They'll wear those pins below their shoulders. The red white and blue,
they'll beat you black and blue.

LBJ, LBJ,
What happened in '68 should have stayed in '68

Remember hiding in that jungle? How we lost all our friends,
while the greedy fought with their pens?
How did we make it to november? Well we're up to this again,
let's see which snake will win…

LBJ, LBJ,
What happened in '68 should have stayed in '68
Dropping bombs on down, no boots on the ground
Track Name: Gloomy Daze
We flew like falcons, when we crossed the plains.
We were justified in our mistakes.
Oh, now your sunny days are grey.
Oh, and now we're finding our own way.
Whoa oh oh, you gave away the sun.
Whoa oh oh, you traded for the moon and
all your gloomy days have left you on the plains.
And all these hungry birds are flying your way for
your gloomy days have left you on the plains.
Whoa oh oh, you gave away the sun.
Whoa oh oh, you traded for the moon and all your gloom.
Whoa oh oh, Whoa oh oh.
Track Name: Grow Yeah
This modern horticulture gives way to life, gives way to grow
I hate the way you stomp your feet, I hate what it does to me
If you're a parasite then who's the host and who would know?
I hate the way you brush your teeth, You hate when I say
I'm gonna grow, I'm gonna grow, I'm gonna grow, You know my type well
I'm gonna show you, I'm the growing kind of guy.
You know my type well.
I'm gonna show you, I'm the growing kind of guy.
You know my type I grow
I'm gonna grow, I'm gonna grow, you know my type well
I'm gonna grow yeah. I'm gonna grow yeah. I'm gonna grow yeah.
I'm gonna show you how it's done.
Track Name: Devil Horse
You and me, we were dancing free, but could not control our feet.
We left the city when no one was watching, no one was watching, no one was watching. We left the city and sure enough they were glued to the T.V.
This desert is our holy land, but who says that holy is free?
If they take your horse, then they take your cavalry, no one was watching, no one was watching.
They'll take your horse and you're lucky that they came along and stole that devil and they took him right back to hell
Who are you to call this destiny? Don't call this destiny.
Who are you to call this destiny? Don't call this destiny.
Who are you to call this destiny? Don't call this destiny.
Who are you to call this destiny? Don't call this destiny.

You stole that devil horse. You took him right back to hell.

Who are you to call this destiny? Don't call this destiny.
Who are you to call this destiny? Don't call this destiny.
Who are you to call this destiny? Don't call this destiny.
Who are you to call this destiny? Don't call this destiny.
Track Name: Replicant
I promised you I'd raise your flag.
I raised a sweatshirt instead.
You swore to god you were counting sheep, but
how is your battery?

You're just a sad sad replicant. You got the best of me…
How did I slip into your dreams? I didn't know you sleep.

You swore to god you'd set them free, but there was gold beneath their feet. Now it's my turn to set them free, the gold took over me…

Now I'm the sad sad replicant, you got the best of me...
How did I slip into your dreams? I didn't know you sleep.

Now I'm the sad sad replicant, you got the best of me...
