about

The long lost record! Those of you around me know what I'm talking about. The majority of which was recorded on a number of Tuesdays between February and March 2010, and with final tracking and mixing occurring in July. Life intervened to delay its release...but now the time has come! I just want to get the music out there. I had a blast recording it and would like to thank all my friends who put in a lot of time to help create it. There may be shows in the future, or there may not, but, for me, this album represents the culmination of a couple of years of fun playing music with a lot of talented guys, and making a lot of great friends along the way. Please download and I hope you enjoy, I put a lot into it. A coule of the individual tracks are free, but if you like the songs, you can buy the whole album for a price of your choosing. The full album download includes pictures, a live video, and a "making of" video showing some of the fun we had making it.

Track Name: Fear
You hide yourself away again
Uncertainty will never ebb away
Fade Away

You hide yourself behind the veil
Of fear in things you can never know

You hide yourself away again
Your heart is locked inside a cage of doubt

(If) you live in love with all your heart
all your fears will wash away with time

All of your life, you'll never know what lies (with)in you
Track Name: March to Meet the Sea
Don't you ever underestimate
the will of man when temped by the fruits of hate
You'll see because
I swear this will be the first and last time
I will burn you down for what you've done, my brother

Don't you ever underestimate
the will of man when temped by the fruits of hate
'Cause here it comes
This town will fall to its knees at feet of fire
I will burn it down for where it stands
Only the sea can stop my hands
Of iron falling down for you, my darling girl

From ashes rise the memory of our lies
A broken man in fields before sunrise
With visions a love so warm and true
Of a lady that has love for me and you

I will get you back someday
My lady oh sweet liberty
They will change the tide for me
In marching on to meet the sea

Don't you ever underestimate
the will of man when temped by the fruits of hate
Tell me how she is lost
You ignore all her needs
When I give her a life thats free from pondering necessity
If she can also help me then so let it be...

She never loved you...
(She didn't have to)
We really need her...
(I'm gonna set her free)
You are my brother...
(No one can smother)
Please stop the burning...
(The fire except the sea)
Track Name: Don't Count on Me
Coming out of the rain
I was alone, I know
I dried my soul with you

I know what you think about
Everyone has doubt
Feelings kind of strange

Can't quite tell what's coming now
Can't help but remember how
I was always there

Don't Count on me
'Cause I'll be
Forever her's, evermore
Don't count on me
I won't be around

With All the problems that arise in life
The trouble and the strife
The tempest rages on

Just as I weathered the rain
You will find again
Your way through the clouds

Don't count on me
Cause i'll be
Forever her's evermore
Dont count on me
I wont be around

Find your way alone
(And find it now)
Track Name: Only You
Only you
Put a stopper in the thoughts I know
Would eventually spill to sorrow
With thoughts of lonely wasted days
Without the one I love

Only you
Could understand what I've been through
Insecurity questioning value
Of every lonely wasted day
Without the one I love

You're finding out
Things I never talk about

Only you
Could steal my breath with every move
I turn purple on a night with you
After lonely wasted days
Without the one I love

Only you

After lonely wasted days without the one I love

You're finding out
Things I never talked about

Only you

You're finding out
Things I never talked about

What gives you the right to say you know
I'd be lost without your love

What gives you the right to say things that you could never know, you never know, you never know
I've got a thing or two to tell you that you never knew
you never knew, you never knew
That I've been lost since I found you

And now you know
What I have never shown
Only you
And now you know
You were afraid I wasn't sure

Only you
Track Name: Spirit of '45
Say all the things that I want to hear
To paint all my dreams in you

Say all the things that I want to hear
So hopes can choke thoughts
With the hands that will hand me peace

See all the hope that falls from the sky
To explode all our fears away

I never wanted for things to turn out like this
I only wanted for things to end as quick as
Heat melts your life away

Tear down the walls that keep us apart
Set free all the lies that in time will erode us away

It's one flash of light to save all their lives
Blinded by sight of the sound

I never wanted for things to turn out like this
I only wanted to save you for your wife and kids
(This box) can't be closed again
Time will reopen the wounds that hurt us all so bad

Please don't you do this
It will all be over soon enough
They're on their last leg to stand on

It will change everything
Make life a constant state of fear
Of what we could do again

Don't forget me
Or what I have died for
Hope that this life
Is set free without war
Track Name: Sunset and Sunrise
Time flies past another day
You're finding another way
To believe in
Everything you say

Sunset and sunrise
They both keep passing me by
You breathe a whole lot deeper
When each and every breath could be your last

Golden summers before the war
During evenings we always swore
To not forget
Everything we said

Lying here in the dead of night
Trying to ward off the fright
Of the next day
Stealing me away

Sunset and sunrise
They both keep passing me by
You breathe a whole lot deeper
When each and every breath could be your last

Darkness surrounds me
Every which way seeming to be lost
Save one lane leading to the end
Dear my sweet pea
Find some other guy to help you grieve
My love will live on past this beach

Birds heralding morning dew
Every waking thought of you
Will get me by
'Til sweet dreams fill my mind

Sunset and sunrise
They both keep passing me by
You think a whole lot clearer
When each and every thought could be your last

Sunset and sunrise
They both keep passing me by
You breathe a whole lot deeper
When each and every breath could be your last
Track Name: Alone
There are days I remember
Time spent alone
Rain spitting bullets

The heat felt from fire
Thoughts of finding home
Alive for the moment

Alone I see
Visions of you
And I wouldn't mind see
If surprise came to find me
deliver me from my time
Alone

Sometimes I remember
Days spend alone
Watching and waiting

For word of your being
Well or on its own
Hearts beating or bleeding

Alone I dream
Visions of you
And I wouldn't mind if
Surprise came to wake me
Deliver me from my time alone

Alone, all alone

Why must this last so long, alone, alone
I just want to come back to you, my one
Please end our misery to...possibly
To have another life
Track Name: No Name
You live your life with words
Sculpting every way you're seen
Never letting truth be heard
And now its wearing very thin

Right now
You're saying everything you want
To everyone you need to feel aright
I know there's other ways to feel happiness in yourself
Besides this place
Why do you swear that
Everyone around here has no name
Well they do

I speak for everyone
When I say you've got it wrong
This life can't be controlled by force
By you or anybody else

Right now
You're saying everything you you want
To everyone you need to shape or mold
Into a perfect view of what it means
To give yourself away to words
Why cant you let them go

Someday you'll know that
Everyone around you has a name
You'll see soon

They will find truth in love
You I know your time runs out
