Prelude

  • Dan Prindle: Keyboard, Programming

 

Dazed

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Electric Guitar, Bass
  • Lee Sylvestre: Electric Guitar
  • Tony Parlapiano: Keyboard
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

The taste of forever, like the smell of surrender
The taste of the ending, not so sweet as the spending
The taste of tomorrow, like the smell of our sorrow
When it is just too easy to set it all aside
And get on with the getting on of the passing of time

Maybe these days things have changed in a way
Maybe we’ve dazed, maybe we’ve changed in a way
Maybe these days, maybe we’ve changed
Maybe we’ve dazed, maybe we’ve changed

The taste of forever, like the smell of surrender
The wait for the ending, starts when we give up on mending
That day will be telling, when hope isn’t selling
When it is just too easy to set it all aside
And get on with the getting on of the passing of time

Maybe these days things have changed in a way
Maybe we’ve dazed, maybe we’ve changed in a way
Maybe these days, maybe we’ve changed
Maybe we’ve dazed, maybe we’ve changed

 

Don’t

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Acoustic Guitar, Bass
  • Lee Sylvestre: Electric Guitar
  • Tony Parlapiano: Keyboard
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

We may try to find
A reason to turn blind
To the ties that bind
I wait here every day
For it to go away
And not lead me astray
One day this will be past
It could never last
I won’t even ask

But, If I turn to you

Don’t hide your eyes
Don’t say goodnight
Don’t do what’s right
Don’t walk away
But if you stay
I can’t do what’s right

I am more afraid
With the mystery away
Now that it’s been said
Maybe lose control
Or grow a bit too bold
Before we both grow old
Until one day coming home
To everything you’ve known
You find yourself alone

But, If I turn to you

Don’t hide your eyes
Don’t say goodnight
Don’t do what’s right
Don’t walk away
But if you stay
I can’t do what’s right

 

Drowning

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Acoustic Guitar, Bass
  • John Howland: Lap Steel
  • Lee Sylvestre: Electric Guitar
  • Tony Parlapiano: Keyboard
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

Across the sea
Where you wait for me
With all the things that I should see
Across the sea
Will you wait for me?

Across the sea
The price that I have paid
If only you had stayed
If it begins to fade
Will you wait for me?

Across the sea
You’re calling out to me
I just could not be
Everything you need
Will you wait for me?

Across the sea
The price we all have paid
But now we’re all the right way
Is it too late?
Will it come for me?

Across the sea
How can it be
The biggest space I’ve ever seen
Becomes an even greater thing
Will it come for me?

 

Famous

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Keyboard, Bass
  • Lee Sylvestre: Electric Guitar
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

Every morning wake up try to remind
Not to linger too long on the things in the mind
Not to over-think it that just makes you blind
When you stop looking it’s amazing what you find
There is only now

We are not here to make ourselves remembered
We are not here to live on when we die
We will forget in the long time till forever
Everyone who’s ever been for all of time

When the closing day breathes its last and fades away
And we’ve all heard everything everyone has to say
We bear down hard on every penstroke every single day
Can anyone still see what a faded mark we’ve made?
There is only now

We are not here to make ourselves remembered
We are not here to live on when we die
We will forget in the long time till forever
Everyone who’s ever been for all of time

 

In the Driving Rain

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Bass
  • Alan Veniscofsky: Electric Guitar
  • Ryan Bowman: Electric Guitar
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums
  • Kurt Rinaldi: Percussion

In the Driving Rain
All the love we made
Thrust the window pane
Down in heavy drops
Poured in every lane
Angular and dense
Through the night it came

We go driving through the rain
Long enough to forget about

In the driving rain
Fell the answer clear
From a violent drain
We got off on this
In our surmounting pain
Angular and dense
Through the night it came

We go driving through the rain
Long enough to forget about

In the driving rain
Breath on fingerprints
Did reveal Your Name
Not an angel wing
But a sign the same
In the driving rain

In the driving rain
We could see a light
From a distant flame
But distinguished when
We arrived in vain
In the driving rain

 

It Is You

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Bass
  • Lee Sylvestre: Electric Guitar
  • Tony Parlapiano: Keyboard
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

After everything I’ve done for me
What have I done for you?
After everything it’s so plain to see
What have I done for you?
In the end it hits me differently
What have I done for you?
After everything I’ve done for me

What have I done for you?
It is you I have searched for
and now, though my search, it is done,
It is you I will search for
for lifetimes to come

My whole life’s not long enough
My body’s not strong enough
I just could not be enough
If I gave my life to you

It is you I have searched for
and now, though my search, it is done,
It is you I will search for
for lifetimes to come

It is time
How was I so blind to think that there was a choice or it was mine
It is time
When I finally end this search of mine

It is you I have searched for
and now, though my search, it is done,
It is you I will search for
for lifetimes to come

 

Land

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Keyboard, Bass, Programming

Here beyond your will?
I doubt it still.
Your smile’s been a little too wide for grief.
Unhook the binds,
The ripened rhines,
And shed them as you can for a relief.

You Can Land
Where You Can
You Can Land
Where you Can
Draw Your Lines
In The Sand
Learn To Stand
Where You Can

Whatever the face
You choose to place
We have seen through it like a telescope.
And in those stars
Between the bars
I’ve left you and I the gift of higher hope.

You can land
Where you can
You can land
Where you can
Draw your lines
In the sand
Learn to stand
Where you can

You can land
Where you can
You can land
Where you can
Learn to stand
Where you land
Learn to stand
Where you land

 

Let You In

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Bass, Cello
  • Ryan Bowman: Electric Guitar
  • Tony Parlapiano: Keyboard
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

We spend so much time denying what is true
Just because it might be the harder thing to do.
We spend so much time attached to what has been
When everything will always be only what it is.

I just want to let you in,
But there’s no room here for me.

I spend so much time wrapped up in what will be
Convinced that it will never live up to what I’ve dreamed
I fought with this before. I know it all so well.
But I can’t lay it all on you now. Can’t even lay it on myself

I just want to let you in,
But there’s no room here for me.

 

Old Bones

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Bass
  • Lee Sylvestre: Electric Guitar
  • Tony Parlapiano: Keyboard
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

My aching bones
foretold of rain
The great clouds weep
and bring life again
The feeling within releases me

We earned a bit
and learned the cost.
Fought noble wars
with the moon and lost
But moving on its no longer me

I do it for her.
I do it for her.
I do this for her.
All this for her.

For these old bones
You always were
The only one,
My “she” and “her”
And moving on its you and me

Through the years
As we’ll grow
And as we’ll learn
Its all to know
The feeling within will always be

I do it for her.
I do it for her.
I do this for her.
All this for her.

My aching bones
foretold the rain
The great clouds wept
and brought life again
And the feeling within will always be

 

Talking Fails

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Acoustic Guitar, Bass
  • Lee Sylvestre: Electric Guitar
  • Tony Parlapiano: Keyboard
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

Talking fails.
All I wanted was to show you light and I failed.

Talking fails.
All I wanted was to show you light,
To break you free out from this night,
To stand beside you in this fight and I failed.

If you decided you would stay,
And the weather never changed,
And all you thought it would be fades,
And everything just stays the same,
If you decided you would stay,
And the weather never changed,
Then I would be to blame.

And the talking fails.
It’s true I don’t know much about it
And I can’t help you sort it out
I’ll stand beside you, scream and shout, and…

And the talking fails.
I never ran away so far
Or looked for shelter in someone’s arms
I stood beside you, tried so hard and I failed.

If you decided you would stay,
And the weather never changed,
And all you thought it would be fades,
And everything just stays the same,
If you decided you would stay,
And the weather never changed,
Then I would be to blame.

Break free. Don’t shake me
To wake me. Go be
And see without me.

If you decided you would stay,
And the weather never changed,
And all you thought it would be fades,
And everything just stays the same,
If you decided you would stay,
And the weather never changed,
Then I would be to blame.

 

Victory

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Bass
  • Lee Sylvestre: Electric Guitar
  • Tony Parlapiano: Keyboard
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

Waiting for a fix
When the fix is in
Showed me that the wait is over
When the fix is in

What are a few small victories
in the face of the tide?
What are a few small victories?
Will they hold back the tide?

Step up to the plate
Go it all alone
Help won’t come the wait is over
When the fix is in

What are a few small victories
in the face of the tide?
What are a few small victories?
Will they hold back the tide?

I have seen that sunlight shine hope across a new day.
But I have seen that sunlight bring the dread of dawn in the same way.
There is nothing hopeful when you feel that you are falling
With the break of day calling.

 

Water and Wine

  • Dan Prindle: Voice, Acoustic Guitar, Bass
  • Lee Sylvestre: Electric Guitar
  • Tony Parlapiano: Keyboard
  • Bryan Kelly: Drums

I’m sorry that you never met your brother
Sorry that you never knew your mother
Maybe someday you will come to meet us
Maybe someday joyfully you’ll greet us

Maybe I will know your name
But until that day
My water can stay water
And my wine can stay wine
Just tell me that was not my only daughter
Tell me she will come to me in time

I’m sorry ’cause your mother felt she knew you
I’m sorry that I did not know what to do
Maybe in time I will come to meet you
Maybe in time joyfully I’ll greet you

Maybe I will know your name
But until that day
My water can stay water
And my wine can stay wine
Just tell me that was not my only daughter
Tell me she will come to me in time

 

Welcome

  • Dan Prindle: Acoustic Guitar, Voice

I know it’s bright here
And I know it’s cold
Everything seems to shock you
But you’re not alone

These are my arms
This is your home
You have no words to tell it
But somehow you know
These are my arms

First times aren’t so easy
But as time unfolds
You will know for certain
That you are not alone

These are my arms
This is your home
You have no words to tell it
But somehow you know
These are my arms

I know that it’s unlike
Anything you’ve ever known
But let me be the first to say,
Anyway, Welcome home.

These are my arms
This is your home
You have no words to tell it
But somehow you know
These are my arms
