"Shake Your          Bones"

 

(2018 LP) 

Lyrics

-ALONE-

Oh She caught a notion,

of what her life could become

Fish in the ocean,

but she’s still under his thumb

Her vows were sacred and

kind of hard to forget

She had to break them

or live a life of regret

 

Is she alone?  Alone x 2

 

She took her heart ache

And put it out of her reach

She had a thought break,

Love ain’t a figure of speech

Dream turned to nightmare

She knew he didn’t even care  

She had to leave him
Or live her life
 

Alone, (Alone)

Is she Alone?  (Alone)

Is She Alone?  (No)

 

Her vows were sacred and kinda hard to forget

She had to break them or she’d live her life alone

-Shake Your Bones-

Can’t understate it we’re all imitating

a life that makes us feel real

We’re all sedated connection degraded

Moments that our small screens steal

 

If you’re tired of the new king tired of the suffering

tired of the same old song

Tired of assuming dark days are looming

tired of just humming along

Shake your bones

 

Accounts overrated, socially jaded

Won’t face the way that we feel

The images painted, all self-created

Reality’s losing appeal

 

If you’re tired of the new king tired of the suffering

Or tired of the same old sound

Tired of assuming dark days are looming
Tired of just hangin around

Shake your bones

-HOLD ONTO YOU-

When you’re alone

the world’s left you behind

Don’t you find?

Lonely ain’t kind

 

You’ve got your freedom

you wanna hold on to

But don’t you know?  Don’t you know?

Someone should hold on to you

Hold on to you

Hold on to you

 

I can see, what’s been keeping you from me

You just got kicked around, found a lonely sound

Darling please pick yourself up off the ground…

so I can hold on to you

Hold on to you

Hold on to you

-ANOTHER ONE-

She was a bright blue day

In a cheap plastic photo frame

She was the winning choice

In a loser’s game

Pretty lies, and anecdotes

Of the soft, shallow melody we wrote

Here comes the dusk of my

bright blue day

 

I’m not afraid, but I’m not any bolder

I’m another year wiser and another one colder

I’m not frail, so here’s my cold shoulder

I’m another year wiser and another one colder

 

I hear the loudest whispers

Of days gone by

Some old stories

You’re better off letting them die

She told me what she’d done

I couldn’t find the words to say

I just had to leave, I just had to walk away

 

I’m not afraid, but I’m not any bolder

I’m another year wiser and another one colder

I’m not frail, so here’s my cold shoulder

I’m another year wiser and another one colder

 

I’ve got my blinders,

but I’ll still see her as she’s walkin on by

For those bright blue days

she taught me to fly

From 100 to zero at the speed of sound

It isn’t over, but it never was

So I guess I’ll just see her around

 

 

-NO PROMISES-

Instead of making promises in the dark

Why don’t we just play our part?

Cause I’m all alone and you’re all alone tonight

Act like lovers, but we’re not even friends

We can see the end, but it feels good

To pretend

 

Just another side tracked mind at ease

Just another hope that noone sees

Tonight, we’re gonna let it all go

 

All aboard lets sail away we’ve got

A few more hours before the day lights hits

Our weary eyes and its no surprise

That I’ll keep my eyes open this time

Won’t live another day

Where I’m lost in your sea and I’m wasted

In my memories

 

Just another side tracked mind at ease

Just another hope that noone sees

Tonight, we’re gonna let it all go

 

Noone is here to stay

So what does it matter anyways?

We can live this night out alone

Together in a way

 

Just another side tracked mind at ease

Just another hope that noone sees

Tonight, we’re gonna let it all go

-No Further Questions-

Dreams like satellites in motion

I’m just another drop in the ocean

Gravity is blind, tries to keep me in line

Yet I climb, higher up the mountain in my mind

 

Will I believe again? Will I believe again?

 

Will I believe again

 

Part time dreamin with a full time devotion

Tracing life with waves of sonic motion

Reality confined, tries to keep me in line

Yet I climb,  Full of thoughts and melodies entwined

 

Will I believe again? x3

I will believe again x3

 

 

-HAND DRAWN RECORDS-

Silhouette walls dance to my creation

Hand Drawn Records echo our formation

Steady hands, steady hearts, steady words, steady minds

Portraying thoughts in time

 

Ambitious minds driftin out to sea

In darkness our hearts will fail to see

Steady life, steady love, steady cause, steady soul

Regaining our control

 

Only time will tell us

Only time will tell us

Who’s laughing now?

 

Hand drawn records echo our formation

 

Only time will tell us

Only time will tell us

Who’s laughing now?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

-FAULT LINE-

All of my dreams could light up the sky

My incantations of a far away life

But where do you go when the dreams...

 

Standing on a timeworn bridge

With a fault line below

I sway on board and rope

My panic starts to show

Before and behind

Asylum seems miles away

So far away

 

All of my dreams could light up the sky

My incantations of a far away life

But where do you go when the dreams

Begin to lie?

 

The facade of a normal day

Is huntin me down

But the call of the unknown

Is draggin me around

Draggin me down

 

All of my dreams could light up the sky

My incantations of a far away life

All of my dreams could light up the sky

My incantations of a far away life

But where do you go when the dreams

Begin to lie?

-Love and Music-

Wake up in the afternoon

But I feel alright

Daylights gone far too soon

Gives way to the night

Green signs meet bright lights

With darkness all around

Breathing life and sound

Into those lost souls who wanna be found

 

Here’s where the hopeless go

When their hopes just run astray

Here’s where the dreamers go

When their dreams have turned to gray

 

Late night highs to burn the lows

We move through the night

Outside these walls the darkness grows

Step into the light

Shadows fade and real lives show

Their everyday tru(th)

Here we are alive tonight

Transcending hearts of black and blue

 

Here’s where the hopeless go

When their hopes just run astray

Here’s where the dreamers go

When their dreams have turned to gray

Raise the curtains up, we’ve got one thing left to say

Love and music are here to stay

 

Where the hopeless go

When their hopes just run astray

Where the dreamers go

When their dreams have turned to gray

Where the faithless go

Cuz they don’t know how to pray

Where the voiceless go

When they’ve got something left say

 

Love and music are here to stay
