We’re boppin’ like a blitzkrieg — lyrics to “On the Downbeat”

Here they are… the lyrics to “On The Downbeat”, the first new Supertones song in 8 years!!!

On The Downbeat

Ya say you got your problems. Well, I got an idea. God is on your side, so ya bring Him in here, and let love drive out your fear.

Front door, kick it in! Let ‘em know it’s dancin’ time!
Back door, beat it down! We don’t wanna wait in line. No rows, no seats, everybody on your feet, and smash it up! Smash it up! Meet me at the downbeat! We’re on the downbeat, We’re on the downbeat, We’re on the downbeat.
Get on the downbeat!

The sound relieves stress, so the beat is medical. Our purpose is to worship, so the beat is spiritual.
Tell me, do you believe in miracles? We’re boppin’ like a blitzkrieg, pilin’ in the backseat. Party till were fa-tigued
Generating steam heat.

No rows no seats, everybody on your feet, and smash it up! Smash it up! Meet me at the downbeat! We’re on the downbeat, We’re on the downbeat, We’re on the downbeat.
Get on the downbeat!

Front door, kick it in! Let ‘em know it’s dancing time!
Back door, beat it down! We don’t wanna wait in line. No rows, no seats, everybody on your feet, and smash it up! Smash it up! Meet me at the downbeat! We’re on the downbeat, We’re on the downbeat, We’re on the downbeat.
Get on the downbeat!

Mystery Lyrics

For the last few days, the Tones have been making posts hinting at a ‘tidal wave’ sized reveal coming up for 3.9.12.  You can see it on their brand-new website at http://www.ocsupertones.com, or on their facebook or twitter.  Speculation has been rampant, but it seems that most people are hoping for a new song, or the announcement of a new record.  You can count this fan in with that crowd!  Two of their more recent posts have contained lyrics that I can’t place, and google didn’t seem to be a help at all.

“The sound relieves stress so the beat is medical. Our purpose is to worship so the beat is spiritual. Tell me do you believe in miracles?”

“Front door kick it in let em know it’s dancin time…..back door beat it down we don’t wanna wait in line!!!!”

It could be that these are from existing songs that I don’t know, and google has never heard of.  But I also suppose they could be from a new Supertones song.  We know that their ‘purpose is to worship’ (Adonai lyrics), and if you’ve seen them on tour since their return, you know they are all about getting people to dance.  I guess time will tell!

To hold you over until the mysterious 3.9.12 announcement, here is a video of the Supertones playing Adonai at Heaven Fest 2010!

We’re back!!

OCSupertones.com re-launched tonight! Along with the band’s return Track the Tones is back with a new site design and a new team of fans. Track the Tones is your source for all things Supertones. If you haven’t noticed — the band is all about God. Jason Carson wrote the history page on their new website and he makes sure to let everyone know that the band is all about God and His Kingdom. On Track the Tones 2.0 we’ll share different things from the guys’ heart about God and what he’s teaching them. Hopefully we’ll learn something along the way! We hope to connect you to the band and other fans. If you want to contribute pictures, videos, or stories please email them to us at trackthetones@gmail.com!!

With our relaunch we want to introduce our co-partner in the project, Brian Middleton. Brian is a long-time Supertones fan and would love to connect you with any news or media related to the band. Be on the look out for updates from him soon!

We hope you love the new Supertones site, we hope you enjoy our new look, and we REALLY hope you’ll follow us on Twitter at@TracktheTones!!!
