about

This album was made independently by the band without the help of a record label or any established member of the recording industry. This was done because it was all we could afford at the time. The band turned 10 yrs old this year and we can't think of a better way to mark this occasion than with a new album. We are very proud of how this record has turned out and we are over-the-moon with excitement to share it with everyone. Please do us a huge favor and share this album with anyone you think may enjoy it. Post links to this album in social media. Purchase copies for your families and friends to give as gifts. Recommend us to your favorite venue by posting links to the album on their social media pages. Share this album with any music Bloggers you may know or know of. Hell, why not write a BLOG and review the album yourself. Be sure to let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you all. We appreciate everyone's love and support and hope to continue making music and putting out records for many years to come.

Track Name: On The Road
I want to burn burn burn across the night
And soar like a roman candle through the pitch-black sky
Get lost in cemeteries raising the dead
Let the songs fill the empty spaces inside of my head
Maybe I’ll get lost somewhere out on the road
And spill my troubles left over from overload

And I want to hang on let loose ‘cross the road
And go to all the places said I’d never go

Oh You, you made it sing I thank you for that
Ah now we’ve forgotten just where we’re at

I want to hang on let loose ‘cross the road
And go to all the places said I’d never go

Ah You, you made it sing I thank you for that
And now we remember just where we’re at

I want to hang on let loose ‘cross the road
And go to all the places said I’d never go oh oh

Can’t recall the way the wind felt on my way
But I’ll remember you until there’s no words left to play
Track Name: Commotion
I have never, ever truly ever been alone before
There has always been somebody waiting outside my door
Despite the truth I still believe
In many unbelievable things
I find it hard to leave the past
I see it in so many terrible things

And its making the confidence growing inside of me
I believe the words they say oh yes I believe

Somehow I am sure that I’ve never seen all I can see
All I the things that have been through it still amazes me
The Things I accomplish they always move away from me
And I am stuck to figure out just what it all means

Now they say that things will be okay
And they’re assuring me things will work out my own way

Ooh ooh oooh oooh ooooh ooooh

You and I can meet together on the way to some place neat
Laugh off uncomfortable moments waiting for you to tell me you must leave
Spend the day conversing sharing problems never letting us be
A chance encounter that we’ve been through yeah no we never meant to do anything

And now they say that things will be okay
And they’re assuring me things will work out my own way
And now it seems we can’t let it go
Oh we’re moving forward with no place to go whoa
Track Name: Nina's Request
She only asks for what she thinks she deserves
I think even her prayers are prejudice
You go in with ten you must come out with ten again
Champagne Cocaine and Sausages

Champagne Cocaine and Sausages

Like an addict sitting in a church pew
Letting some good seep in before the bad seed comes through
I have never paid witness to such forgiveness
Well maybe I am forgetting moment when it was new

Maybe I, I am forgetting the moment when it was new

Been gone so long I can hardly even find the door
There isn’t much more I can wring out of it
The story was never told no it must not be much of a story
The sky turns a deeper blue stolen bandit

The sky turns a deeper blue stolen bandit

The sky turns a deeper blue stolen bandit

She only asks for what she thinks she deserves
I think even her prayers are prejudice
You go in with ten you must come out with ten again
Champagne Cocaine and Sausages

Alien oh interesting alien, martyr ooh yeah
Alien oh interesting we are alien martyr ooh yeah
Track Name: Empty
You’ve got the weight of the world I see it there rest on your shoulders
Reaching for stars, gasping for air when buried by boulders

You never wanted to know you were alone and did what they told you
Lost in your words left in the cold teeth gnashing on old news

We were just biding our time watching the world looking to show her
Never believing the signs we couldn’t stand not wiser just older

I wanted so hard to help I tried to see I was not sure inside
Pulling myself from the edge forcing my fear falling for all their lies

You were already at war struggling to shout lost in your game
You battled for sympathy but you ran when it began to rain

I was still searching for truth sad worried songs I heard the wind sing
I can’t help you, no not with a damn thing

We stayed out all night
Looking for someone to fight
We just started swinging
And coming up empty

We were just learning to dance moving our feet wearing our old wounds
Our eyes burned by the sun we showed them all we played our own tunes

I thought we’d never give up we had a way we were invincible
But you wanted to stay determined but why your fate was unbreakable

We touched the stars and we saw the moon shadows just passed us by
Watching the sea and falling for you swept up with the raging tide

We all have come to witness the truth you just need to open your eyes and see
I can’t help you, no not with a damn thing

We stayed out all night
Looking for someone to fight
We just started swinging
And coming up empty

We stayed out all night
Looking for someone to fight
We just started swinging
And coming up empty

Why you so empty
You’re always so empty
God is so empty
Why you so

Oh oh oh oh
Oooohhhhhhh
Oooohhhhhhh
oohh
Track Name: Bazz
You and I we’ve been to busy drinking
You and I find it hard to keep on thinking
It doesn’t matter what they say
There’s just no point in letting it go
I don’t even remember your name
but somehow I’m gonna make it through with out letting it show
oh no I think I let show

And you know I’m telling all my friends just what I did with you
And when I share my stories I’m telling them that you enjoyed it too
Oh you do you always do
I’m too tired to work tonight I’m gonna get mine before I fall asleep
If you hurry you just might get yours now too now wouldn’t that be sweet
if you and I both got our cookies

Yes I know you well I’ve shown you
I love all those little things you do
There’s no reason why we cannot say we’re here
Nothing left that we cannot explain

It doesn’t matter what they say
It doesn’t matter how hard I try
We’re only here for today
We’ll take you all inside

Got to go cause got the answers gonna help everybody tonight
You and I Yes got a chance here we’ll show em how to survive

Yes I know you well I’ve told you
I love all those little things you do
There’s no reason why we cannot say we’re here
Nothing left that we cannot destroy

It doesn’t matter what they say
It only matters how hard I try
We’re only here for today
We’ll take you all inside

Got to go cause got the answers gonna help everybody tonight
You and I Yes got a chance here we’ll show em how to survive

Got to go cause got the answers gonna help everybody tonight
You and I Yes got a chance here we’ll show em how to survive
We got now and we got forever we’ll show everybody tonight
You and I Yes got a chance here we’ll show em how to survive
Track Name: So Many Miles
Leaving in the morning as the sun rises up behind me
Been on the road so long can’t hardly remember where tomorrow will find me
So many places on the way and faces I never have time to stop and see what surrounds me
I’ve got to make to show tonight I’ve got some songs I must get out of me

And I’m wondering if you are somewhere calling my name in the night
Oh I only wanna be there with you holding you oh so tight

And I’ve crossed this path before never really understood what it was you saw in me
Tried my best not to let it show I’m holding on to all the ways you smile at me
Inside I’m boiling no there’s no point in knowing what words are gonna find me
And I’m driving on home tonight you’re holding my soul so tight you’re bound to me you’re bound to be

Somewhere calling my name into the night
Oh I only want to be there with you holding you oh so tight

Are you somewhere calling my name into the night
Oh I only wanna be there with you holding you oh so tight oh so tight
I wanna fold into your arms as we drift on out of sight
I’m already half asleep there’s so many miles many miles to go tonight

I‘m coming home to you tonight
Track Name: The Night..........Endlessly
The Night

We are at war with the world
Reaching Farther than anyone has before
Over and Over Again the end again we fly again we soar

My motives are simple the reason is quite clear
I’m in a state of constant conflict
The battle begins when the crowd gets here

Tonight the night is calling
And our story is waiting to be told
And the stars they shine brighter then they ever have before
We must go
We must go
We must go

Endlessly

The Morning breaks it came in with the dawn
The sun shows its face shining on and on
Light breaks the window shade
It lands on me on you
I lie here watching you sleep
how I am moved

There is no greater reason I can remember
I am filled with so much happiness
And I’m here next to you
The day ends the night’s witness
You have given me endlessly your love

And I have found just where my story lives
Cause in my life I have so much to forgive
All I ask is that you stay here with me
Cause in your arms in your arms
Oh I have I have found my peace

You give it to me
You help me to see
You taught me to be
You took me to my knees

Shook my spirit free
No NO there is no need
No apologies
I am playing for keeps

Let them hear me sing
With every breath that I Breathe
This is my guarantee
I am giving you endlessly my love
