about

Discovered on Napster in 2000 by the drummer from the Alkaline Trio, Derek Grant, who brought it to his friends at Kung Fu who signed the band immediately and reissued the self-released "Rock And Roll Part-Three." Kung Fu owner Joe Escalante has been quoted as saying that of all the releases on the label, he is most proud of this one.

Reviews:
10 out of 10 in all categories from Ultimate-Guitar.com:
Sound: One thing the most refreshing about the album is that it stays true to the emo sound, rather than the MTV stuff portrayed as emo. From the begining track "Domino Effect" you can tell this is going to be the next best and closest thing to Weezer. The album never slows down and has no "Skip-Over" Tracks but rather one great power pop song after another. // 10

Overall Impression: The Debut album from Ozma known as "Rock and Roll Part Three" is truly One of my favorite albums of all time. This album has such catchy hooks that most anyone can enjoy it. // 10

Review by Bradley Torreano
"Say hello to the new sound, same as the old sound." About a minute into the last song, the band puts their finger on the exact reason why their 2001 album, Rock and Roll Part Three, is as good as it is. Some bands sound a lot like other bands, but Ozma practically is Weezer. It is actually hard to believe that they aren't Weezer at some moments. But this is not necessarily a bad thing; in fact, Ozma may have arguably written the best Weezer album of 2001 (and yes, the real thing also had an album come out the same year). Filled to the brim with catchy choruses, oddball lyrics, and poppy keyboards, Ozma knows this style of music like the back of their hands. "Domino Effect," "Natalie Portman," "Last Dance" -- it is all quality emo pop that is short and catchy. The only point where they really significantly depart from the Weezer sound is on "Battlescars," an epic of whiny vocals and strummed guitars that has far more in common with other indie epics, like Pavement's "Fillmore Jive." But all comparisons aside, this is a solid album of alternative rock that just happens to sound exactly like another good band who makes the same kind of music. Still, fans of this sort of music should give this a listen; it is really quite good.

Track Name: Domino Effect
Chances last a finite time,
In the warm july nighttime.
Every care that keeps you from your feet,
is a care that carries your defeat.

You better let 'er rip tonight,
With a pocket full of kryptonite.
Every care that keeps you in your seat,
is a care that carries your defeat.

Sing that song you sang long ago.
A heartbeat, so sure and slow.
Hold me, and don't let go.
The fourteenth domino.

Twenty thousand points of light.
Sun by day, disco ball by night.
Every care that keeps you from the beat,
is a care that carries your defeat.

Sing that song that i used to know.
The fourteenth black domino.
Hold me, like long ago.
A heartbeat, sure and slow.

Chances last a finite time,
In the warm july nighttime.
Every care that keeps you from your feet,
is a care that carries your defeat.

Chances last a finite time, and you're running out of time
Track Name: Apple Trees
Deep inside my eye
There is part of you
You still look the same
Except you're grown up now
So much time has passed
Since i saw you last ohhh
An apple pie
The number pi
I studied you in math class ohhh
And did all my work
But never got your digits
Take a number like five times ten
times ten again!
Five hundred miles of apple orchards to defend
Deep inside my core
There is part of you
You still look the same
Except you're upside down
Why are you still in my eye
Will your memory ever die ohhh
An apple tree a family tree
We'll plant ours together
And the roots will hold
Forever and forever
So what can i say
I won't delay I'm leaving today
Five hundred miles of apple orchards in my way
A macintosh a macintosh
You messaged me all winter ohhh
And i wrote replies
But still felt like a loser
Pack an apple to eat
Go with the street
With God on your feet
Five hundred miles of apple orchards 'til we meet
So i'm taking a stand
With apple in hand
I pull up my sleeve
It's time that i make
like an apple tree
and leave
Track Name: Natalie Portman
i'm telling you a story now
of something that's wrong
this has been developing
since nineteen eighty-one

maybe she's alone
maybe she's alone
what can i do?
what can i do?

there's nothing
there's nothing
there's nothing i can do

there's nothing
there's nothing
there's nothing i can do

if i'm a proper jewish boy
will her family love me?
can't stand to see her on the big stage
and know she's not thinking of me

maybe she's alone
maybe she's alone

what can i do
what can i do

there's nothing
there's nothing
there's nothing i can do

there's nothing
there's nothing
there's nothing i can do

maybe she'll be hearing this
but probably she won't (probably she won't)
possibly she has desires
but probably she don't (probably she don't)

maybe she's alone
maybe she's alone

what can i do
what can i do

there's nothing
there's nothing
there's nothing i can do

there's nothing
nothing
there's nothing i can do
yeah

maybe she's alone
maybe she's alone

what can i do
what can i do

what can i do
what can i do

there's nothing
there's nothing
there's nothing i can do

there's nothing
there's nothing
there's nothing i can do
Track Name: The Ups And Downs
I've been cheating on you ever since we broke up
I've been dreaming about you ever since i woke up
Now my feeling's disappearing ever since you spoke up
So I'll devise a plot to break your heart
Think up a plan that I'll never carry out
What's wrong with you?
Tell me now
What should i do?

CHORUS
Don't let me down
I couldn't take much more of your love
Don't let me down
I couldn't take much more of you love

So i asked you to the show but i knew you'd never show up
Came to my birthday party just to tell me i should grow up
And then i see another girl and i think I'm gonna throw up!
So I'll devise a plan to make you mad
Dirty tricks to come back and take command
I'll win your hand
We'll hijack a plane and we're never gonna land

CHORUS

Don't let me down
I couldn't take much more of your love
Don't call me up
I'm so sick and tired of being down
Don't let me down
I'm so sick and tired of hanging up
Don't call me up
I couldn't take much more of your love
Track Name: If I Only Had A Heart
i'd give my heart
if you'd give your attention
but when i look
there's just an open trench (and baby)

i can't stand to see you, girl
showing off your silver party dress
no, you can't come over now
the house ain't neat
my room's a mess

i'd give my heart
to just be in contention
but i sold it off
at the baseball card convention

i can't stand to see you, girl
rubbing motor oil on all your joints
no, i ain't no straight A wiz
but i could learn
that's not the point (i'll plot my points)

i'd give my heart
if i had one for giving
i'd give my heart
your lips could keep me living
i'd give my heart (i'd give my heart)
and always be forgiving
i'd give my heart (i'd give my heart)
if i had one for giving
Track Name: Baseball
when i feel the morning grass i let down my guard
because love comes from the dirt in my own backyard

everytime i think i've finished being young
i catch myself having fun
but the moment passes as the sun moves on
so i turn myself back to you

on a diamond in the rough i spent my better years
i still see her in the crowd with diamonds in her ears
and it's depressing that i can't forget the tune the organist played
la da da da da da da, la da da da da da da...

everytime i think i've finished being young
i catch myself having fun
but the moment passes as the son moves on
so i turn myself back to you

is our season over?
no four leaf clover
i feel it's getting colder
now that it's late fall

but can you still remember?
april to november
you and i were members
of the best team in baseball

so we play our games
i've got a girlfriend
you've found a new guy
but it's not the same

and so i drive
straight up i-5
to let you know i'm still alive
Track Name: Rocks
I've been looking for a way
To find a way to find u
Turning over every unturned stone
I thought everyone was late
But i got sick well I got scared
'Cus I'm sure you've been long alone
whoa ohhhh ohhh oh oh
whoa ohhhh ohhh oh oh
I've been trying to find a way
To finally up and find you
Finding every boulder in my way
To throw me off your trail
You move to Boulder, COlorado
A hop, a skip, and one long jump away
whoa ohhhh ohhh oh oh
whoa ohhhh ohhh oh oh
whoa ohhhh ohhh oh oh
whoa ohhhh ohhh oh oh
I've finally found a way to find
A way to finally find you
Down where Colorado Street meets Hill
Pick a rock and throw it way across the Rocky Mountains
And pray to God it hits your window sill
I will never skip a rock
I will never skip a rock
I will never skip a rock again
I will never skip a rock
I will never skip a rock
I will never skip a rock again
Track Name: Battlescars
Of all the shooting stars I knew
I never felt at ease with anyone but you
Don't ever wonder where I go
Remember that the grass still grows beneath the snow
When everything around her moves
Just fall asleep and wake when its all through

There's battlescars on all my guitars
But still I come out here and play

You know I've lost your touch again
And now I'm only one in twenty fives and then
I promise not to let you go
Just close your eyes and sleep right through the falling snow
And when I finally wash ashore
I'm coming back to kiss the girl I kissed before
Before the shooting stars I knew
I never fell for anyone but you

There's battlescars on all my guitars
But I still come out here and play
There's battlescars on my face and my arms
But you still kiss me everyday

There's battlescars on all my guitars
But I still come out everyday
There's battlescars on my face and my arms
But you still kiss me anyway

There's battlescars on all my guitars
But I still come out here and play
There's battlescars on my face and my arms
But you still kiss me everyday

There's battlescars on all my guitars
But I still come out everyday
There's battlescars on my face and my arms
But you still kiss me anyway
Track Name: In Search Of 1988
every time i start to remember
i remember i don't want to remember
warp me back at 88 if only for one day

turn on mario and luigi
let's sit down put our hands on the ouija
and when it spells out roisin's name i'll swear it wasn't me

1988 take me back to 1987
i'm in search of days
when times were good and earth a place in heaven

now that i jump as high as luigi
set me down put my hands on the ouija
when it spells out your sweet name you'll know that it was me

1988 take me back to 1987
i'm in search of days
when times were good and earth a place in heaven

i want to make a motion to stop the commotion
i second the motion to stop the commotion
i got another notion for backwards motion
i too have a notion back-back-back backwards motion
Track Name: Last Dance
say hello to your last chance
same as your first chance
a kinder reminder from ozma

say hello to the new sound
same as the old sound
so spin it, get in it, and stay

i knew that the night had an end soon in sight until you called my name

say hello when you've spied her
sitting on the dryer
it's spinning, 9th inning, so play

say hello like a spider
weave a web right beside her
spin it, get in it, and pray

i knew that the night had an end soon in sight until you called my name
i knew all along i was right but i'm wrong somehow you knew my name

after the last dance, you lose your last chance
after the last dance, you lose your last chance

you lose your last chance
you lose your last chance

you've lost your last chance
