The bass player/lead vocalist/song writer for this band had the same rolls in a band I ran sound for in the mid 70s. Though this clip is fairly old (April 1994) the guy can still sing...

From King's-X:

I Pretend

 Quote:
You took away from me
I tried to get it back
And if you lie to me
I keep it to myself
A trick or treat but then
That don't make it right
I can't remember when
I could say goodnite
Then something comes into my head
And then a change
I work it out somehow
I guess I've got my ways
But then I wonder how did I get it wrong
It doesn't matter now


I pretend.
I pretend.
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah


I take the longest walks
They always do me good
I just indulge myself
In sorrow singing blues
But then I have to laugh
Cause it's an outlet too
And if I add it all
It still just wouldn't do
I've come to realize
There's nothing I can lose
So I control myself
Nothing else to do
I'll just remember when
It comes around again
I'd rather be alone
I won't get hurt again


I pretend
I pretend
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
