Countdown to New Shoes Album Day 7, Track 9


(Post edited – each day, a new song was previewed. The preview link was the same every day. I have removed those links as they are now dead. As the band releases videos, I’ll adjust links for specific songs. Your best bet right now is to head on over to ShoesWire.com and buy Ignition. You won’t be disappointed. The guys put a great deal of time and thought into this album and the songs are stellar.)

Shoes, that amazing Power Pop band from Zion, Illinois, has been working on a new album for over a year. It’s titled Ignition and will have an “Extreme Fan” release on July 3rd. Every day, starting on June 18, they are revealing a new song, counting down from Track 15.


Track 9 is Where Will It End by Jeff Murphy.

Buy Ignition from ShoesWire.com.

(Jeff Murphy)

I’ve had my share, I’ve seen enough
Fought long and hard, the road’s been rough
How long will it last
This too has to pass

It goes against the odds to never win
I’ve loved and lost and loved again
I build a bridge, you build a wall
A simple lie destroys it all

What’s the purpose of scratching the surface
It always ends up the same
I try to be honest and look what that got us
You seem content to pretend
But tell me where will it end
Where will it end

I still believe in hope and change
But simple minds get in the way
I can’t be sure of how to begin
Show me I’m wrong and I’ll give in

I know what’s right, I know what’s fair
I speak my mind but you don’t care
You’ve been exposed for who you are
It should’ve never gone this far

I’m getting bored with the same old story
Now something has to change
Yesterday’s gone, now it’s time to move on
It’s pointless to live it again
So tell me where will it end
Where will it end

Seems like whenever I put in the effort
You throw it back in my face
I’ve gotta push back if I feel attacked
But there’s little left to defend

Now tell me where will it end
Where will it end
Where will it end
Where will it end
