about

The Crabs Anacortes, Washington

The duo of Lisa Jackson and Jonn Lunsford started out modestly as just a Christmas project. The nautical themes abound as they merge Anacortes style rockin' with classic pop. You also get lovesick musings and a cry for vengence against the neighborhood bully. Definitely the catch of the day. ... more

Track Name: Tumbling Away
What were you thinking
when you told me all those stories now?
What are you doing
with that guy you call your boyfriend anyhow?
When you get caught in the rain,
it washes all your troubles out
But our problem still remains
while our clothes are drying out.

Just one, just two
What am I supposed to do?
The things that you think
And the things I won't say
While our clothes are gently tumbling away

You said your thoughts rhyme with mine
But maybe now's not the time
The things that you think
And the things I won't say
When our clothes are neatly back in place

Whoever said you made your bed
and now you lie in it,
Probably never took the chance
and wound up trying it
When you walk on past my street
with your eyes on the ground,
Now the cat's out of the bag,
and the word's all over town

You said your thoughts rhyme with mine
But maybe now's not the time
The things that you think
And the things I won't say
When our clothes are neatly back in place
Track Name: Market Size
I want to be market size
I want to be canonized
And everyone I know, is smarter than me
But everywhere I go,
they're all having the same dream

I want to be torn apart
Cause you want it straight from the heart

And everyone I know is laughing at me
And everywhere I go, they're all lying to me

It's elementary, but I don't go to school
You sign the contract, they treat you like a fool
You better hope that your touch is gold
Before the week is out, they want a million sold

I want to be canonized
I want to be market size

I want it, I want it, I want it all
I want it, I want it, and I will take a fall
And it's incredible
That you'd sell your soul and still not have it all...
Track Name: Bricks Of Gold
I told you yesterday
When you throw your love away
On him, on her
There is a debt that everyone incurs
For us, it just comes down to who you trust

She tried to cash the check
But her heart's already spent
In life, in death
It seems we're always trying to catch our breath
Until we come back up again

When the thrill becomes familiar
And it loses its shine
Will you still call me sweetheart?
Will you say that you are mine?

He tried to trace the steps
Tragedy is all that's left
To have, to hold
He thought his road
was paved with bricks of gold
It only leads him to the end

When I wake up in the morning
And I ask you what's on your mind,
Will you answer me truly?
Will you look me in the eye?

I told you yesterday
When you throw your love away
On him, on her
There is a death that everyone endures
For us, it just comes down to who you trust
It just comes down to who you trust
Track Name: End Of The World
It's not the end of the world
But it sure feels like it
when you can't find the words
It's not the end of time
But the store is closing, and you're locked inside

It's hard, it's hard
Looking for something
Can't seem to find it
In the miles of nothing
It's hard

Wish I'd go back in time
When my thoughts cost a penny
And friends cost a dime

But it's not the end of the world
But it sure feels like it
when you can't find the nerve

Shopping for something
Can't seem to find it
In the aisles, there's nothing
It's hard

It's not the end of the world
But it sure feels like it when you can't find the will
Track Name: Snow In The Summertime
Think about the snow in summertime
You know it never feels quite right
The ice should have melted months ago
When we're alone, it's forty-five below

Now you say you're on it
Sit down and write me a sonnet
But it's too late... anymore

The president drinks turpentine
That explains his breath
But what's on your mind?

Our addresses don't read the same
You packed your bags
But you left behind the blame
Track Name: The Bends
She said to me
Everybody's got their standards,
your are doubted
when it matters
I defend me
everything has got a plan that I could never
understand

I don't want to talk about
what's going on when you're going down
I don't want to trouble you with this

Try to make amends
every time we go too deep you always end up
with the bends
I set it straight
anything you want to do can take you to the
pearly gates

I don't want to talk about what's going on when
you're going down
I don't want to hear about who's moving in when
I'm moving out
I don't want to trouble you with this
Track Name: Classic Crabs
I know you've got the cure
but all I've tried just makes it worse
I've got the power to make it through,
twelve more hours
To have to hold, everyone is growing old
straighten and fold,
the one you want is never home

You're rich I'm poor, let's speak French and then
we'll start a war
you take the pen I take the sword and we'll see
who hurts more
sweet fruit, hot crust
the world is ours let's eat it up

she loves me she loves me not
she said a thousand things that I forgot

I know you've got the cure
but all I try just makes it worse
I need a pond of sugar
to make this pill taste less bitter
sweet fruit, too much, all you do is eat the crust

she loves me she loves me not
she said a thousand things that I forgot
Track Name: I Surrender
I, I surrender
There's no hard feelings between two friends
That can't get worked out before it ends, and
I, I remember
All the bad habits from way back then
that tear at every stitch we mend and
I, I remember

Tell me about the time
That you lost your mind
Tell me about the time
That you lost your mind, now it's fine

I, I surrender
Ten in one, and there's one in ten
boredom is your oldest friend
And I, got the letter
You take out this and you put in that
Now you just want to take it all back
And I, got the letter
