about

The 2009 cd done by Julie, Mike and I. A good mix of hard 70's style rockers, prog rockers, and the only track with Dad on. Some great drumming by mike on the rockers. Julies' keyboard and singing talents on display here as well. A real band feel, and good mix of heavy and heartfelt lyrics.

Track Name: Briarwood Farm
ALONG THE MUGGY COAST OF NEW ORLEANS
DOWN A RUTTED HORSE AND BUGGY TRAIL
THROUGH THE HANGING MOSS AND GNARLED CYPRESS TREES LIES THE RUBLE OF BRICKS AND WOOD

THEY CAME LONG AGO ACROSS THE SE
TO SETTLE ON BRIARWOOD FARM
TO SHED SOME SKIN AND A CONVICTS NAME
AND THE CHANCE TO MAKE A NEW START

CHORUS UNDER A RUM SOAKED MOON
ON A MARDI GRAS NIGHT
I SPIN GRANDFATHERS TALE

THE BACKS WERE BURNT AND THE HANDS THEY BLED
AS THE LAND GAVE IN TO THE PLOW
FROM THE STICKY WET HEAT AROSE A DREAM
AND THE JOHNSON FAMILY NAME

THEY CALLED HER HOPE AND SHE WAS GRAND
HER CRIES SCREECHING UP TOWARDS THE SKY
TO BE THE FIRST BORN IN THE PROMISED LAND
HER MAMA WAS THE FIRST TO DIE

IF YOU CAN DREAM IT THE BEAUTIFUL DAY WILL COME
WHEN WE ALL UNDERSTAND

ONE NIGHT CAME THE SOUND OF POUNDING HOOVES
THEN A DEAFENING CRACK IN THE BARN
FLAMES SPREAD THROUGH THE RAFTERS
AS THE COWARDS SPED AWAY
THE TOWN WOULD RING NO ALARM

PEARL HANDLED PISTOLS AND SHINY SILVER STARS
THE EVER -WATCHING EYES OF THE LAW
MUD CAKED BOOTS AND A PRETTY WHITE SMILE
NEVER A WHISPER ABOUT WHAT THEY SAW

FROM THE SMOKE AND THE ASHES DEFIANCE CAME
AND THEY WALKED OUT WITH ALL THEY HAD
TAKE THE TRAIN HEADED WEST, YOU'LL BE SAFE YOUNG MAN
CHASING THE BLOODY RED SUN
CHASING THE BLOODY RED SUN
Track Name: Salvation Road
SHE WORE HER LIPSTICK A FIERY RED
SHE WAS A BACKROADS QUEEN
27 AND ROOTED LIKE AN OLD OAK TREE
HIS CAR CAME RUMBLING INTO TOWN
SINGING A SWEET AND SINFUL SONG
HOP ON IN SIT BESIDE ME ON THE SHOTGUN SEAT

CHERRY RED 34 FORD COUPE
RACING FAST ACROSS A BLACKTOP MIRAGE
HER TANNED LEGS EXSPOSED TO THE SUMMER HEAT
THUNDER HEADS SURROUND SALVATION ROAD
BLACK CROWES CIRCLING A ROADKILL TREAT
BLASTING THROUGH THE PASS AT ONE HUNDRED AND TEN

CHORUS SHE SAID TAKE ME WHERE THE COOL BREEZES BLOW
AND RESTLESS SOULS CAN GROW WINGS
WHERE PAIN AND DISAPPOINTMENT NEVER STING
SOME COOL RELIEF AT THE LEMONADE STAND
AND A SWEET AND SLOPPY KISS
FROM A MAN WHO ONLY TAKES HIS WHISKEY NEAT

MY FATHER NAMED MY JESSE
I GUESS THE LEGEND SORT OF FITS
BUT THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH THAT ONE GOOD MAN CAN DO
SO I GIVE THEM WHAT THEY ARE DYING FOR
AND THEY'LL PAY FOR THE DEVILS KISS
JUST A LITTLE TASTE, GO ON, THIS ONE'S ON ME

THE TRUNK LID PINNING ALL THE DEMONS DOWN
THE FORBIDDEN CONTRABAND
HIS SECRET HOPE IS SHE WOULD UNDERSTAND
IN THE WORLD OF PAY TO PLAY HE'S THE CANDY MAN
AND THE LAW ALL KNOW HIS NAME
A THIRD GENERATION DREAMER WITH A BRAND NEW PLAN

CHECKPOINT AHEAD PREPARE TO STOP
HOT BLOOD BOILS IN HIS VEINS
HE SWORE IM NEVER GOING BACK IN AGAIN
ALL WEAPONS DRAWN THEY MATCHED HIS SPEED
WITH OVERWHELMING FORCE
THE BULLETS SINGING OUT HIS SWAN SONG
Track Name: Going out Shootin'
The bear sharpens his claws
reeking havoc down main street
The cute little cub not just a nuisance no more
Under shards of plate glass
a final clearance sign lays
A welcome matt gets pulled off a dusty floor

chorus
The hour glass is full
but only for a moment
Then the whole world gets turned upside down
To passively sit and watch the sand go down?
Not me, I'm going out shootin

Rosetta's drinking alone
The lieutenant ropes off the scene
" The quiet ones " rise up in a rage
Expanding bubbles, and then the fall
greed was the cause of it all
The joker's caught playing the sage

bridge
Sun rises in the east
rays of light pierce the sky
Daily life still goes on down below

The toddler tugs on a red skirt
Knees are bandaged and then cleaned
Graduation caps fly into the air
The dinner party awaits
Your on time to take your place
And the bastards pull out the chair
Track Name: The Dance in the Snow
MID-MORNING SUN, THE BLINDING LIGHT HURTS MY EYES
ON MY TOUNGE THE BITTER TASTES OF THE NIGHT BEFORE
IT'S WAY TO EARLY FOR MY FLIGHT HOME , I STILL GOT SOME TIME TO KILL
THE LIBRARY'S OPEN SO I PUSH ON THE REVOLVING DOOR
I SETTLE DOWN INTO A WELL WORN LEATHER BACK EASY CHAIR
FLIP THROUGH THE NEWSPRINT, A FORGOTTEN STORY COMES TO LIFE
DID SHE ROW OUT ALONE? OR THE DEPTHS PULL HER DOWN FOR AN ICY DANCE?
FALL ASLEEP AND I BEGIN TO DREAM

LUSH AND TERRACED GARDENS ONCE SURROUNDED THE HOUSE ON THE SHORE
A DIMLY LIT AND OVERGROWN GRAVEL TRAIL
A CREAKY DOOR FULL OF COBWEBS, A VENETIAN MARBLE FLOOR
A SPIRAL STAIRCASE THAT LEADS TO AN OPEN BEDROOM DOOR
SUN RAYS REFLECT OFF THE GOLD MIRROR ON THE WALL
CHANDELIERS DANGLE TAUNTINGLY JUST OUT OF REACH
AN ANTIQUE TRUNK, OLD MEMORIES CONTAINED BY A RUSTED LATCH
WITH A SNAP I RELEASE THEM ALL

A KISS IGNITES
THEIR LONG PENT UP LOVE THEY BEGIN TO SWAY
DANCE ARM AND ARM WITHIN THE DRIFTING SNOW
THE RINGS, THE LETTERS, THE CHAMPAGNE,
A LOCK OF HER RAVEN HAIR
HANDS JOINED AGAIN, LOVE ETERNAL AFTER-ALL

BEHIND THE FRENCH DOORS, SHE SUDDENLY APPEARS
EXTENDS TO ME A THANKFUL AND TEAR SOAKED SMILE
THRU FEAR OR INTUITION, I SEND THE TRUNK LID CRASHING DOWN
RE-INTOMBED, THEIR ASTRAL FORMS BEGIN TO FADE
I AWAKE TO THE SOUND OF DOOR SLAMS, THE LIBRARY'S CLOSING DOWN
NOW IM TOO LATE! ANOTHER LONELY NIGHT IN THIS TOWN
JACKET OVER MY HEAD, HAIL A CAB, I STAND IN THE BUCKETS OF POURING RAIN
WHAT A DAY! WHAT A FANTASTIC DREAM !
Track Name: The Nashville Jam
La di dah!!! No lyrics
Track Name: The Diver
INTENSE MONSOONAL SUMMER RAIN
PELTS THE SURFACE ON AN AZURE SEA
DUELING RAINBOWS DANCE ATOP GREEN HILLS
WAVES CRASH ACROSS A DESERTED SHORE
LIKE A SERPENT THRUSTING OUT HIS TOUNGE
I TAKE A WHIFF OF THE SALTY AIR
AN AMULET FOR STRENGTH I ADJUST MY PACK
AND ASCEND THE OCRE TRAIL
CHORUS
TELL ME, WHY IS IT WRITTEN THAT ONLY BIRDS CAN FLY?
TOES PERCHED ON THE EDGE OF A CRUMBLING MIGHTY CLIFF
THE UPDRAFT STINGS MY FACE AND FORCES ME TO SMILE
MY BEATING HEART EXPLODES, AND I CLOSE MY EYES

BEYOND THE RUSTED SHOT UP KAPU SIGN
I SLASH THE TANGLED JUNGLE VINES
THE SUSPENSION BRIDGE ( THE OLD ONES WAYS )
IGNORING THE NEW ZIP LINE
THEY WERE THROWN FROM THE PEAK, THEIR SPIRITS TIED
FOR THE ANGRY GODS TO SEE
NOW I SAIL THRU THE AIR OF MY OWN FREE WILL
THE SACRED WATERS CLEANSING ME
BRIDGE
HELD DOWN LONG ENOUGH A FEAR BUILDS IN THE BRAIN
THE POUNDING IN YOUR EARS BEGINS TO ROAR
WHICH WAY IS UP INSIDE THE GLOOMY OCEANS' WOMB
BURST THRU THE SURFACE FEAR ABANDONED DOWN BELOW

WITH A LONG SHOT ZOOM TOURISTS FILM MY FLIGHT
YOU TUBE POSTED FOR ALL TO SEE
BUT THEY CANT STEAL THE ESSENCE OF MY SOUL
OR EVER REALLY UNDERSTAND ME
IF YOUR WERE TO ASK A PEARL DIVER HOW
DO YOU HOLD YOUR BREATH SO LONG?
SHE'D SLOWLY UNFOLD A PROTECTING HAND
TO REVEAL A PERFECT SPHERE.
