Butchers Blind are a band that plays American Music. Their sound hearkens back to a simpler time before Rock & Roll was divided into a million small sub-genres and songwriting was still the order of the day. One may be able to hear the influences of Uncle Tupelo, Gram Parsons and The Band in their songs, but the real magic is how they blend these ingredients into a musical recipe all their own. Butchers Blind encompasses the rich history of American music, then broadens and reshapes it into

Biography

Once in a while a truly original and inspired act breaks through the mold and creates change through music. At it's true core, Iridesense is a celebration of sounds. From Rock and pop, to psychedelic, folk and post-punk/new wave their music is unparalleled and unique. Brother and Sister Rick and Tara Eberle's uplifting and thoughtful lyrics easily inspire, and they sing with harmonic intricacies and counterpoints as their rhythm and bass guitars dance and crunch. The lead guitar riffs of Rob Viccari and drum rhythms of Rich Drouin create a bed of melody and weave the sound together in a steady flow and it's all fused together creating one of the most intoxicating and invigorating aural experiences you can or ever will find. It all comes together in their new CD "A Trip Called Life".

Their music can currently be heard on Nickelodeon in the shows Zoe 101 (featuring Jaime Lynn Spears - sister to Britney) and Drake & Josh and will be featured on next years roster of MTV shows such as Pimp My Ride, Room Raiders, NEXT and more! They also recently signed licensing deals with the Pump Audio and Song and Film agencies

Lyrics

Don't Say

Written By: Tara and Rick Eberle

Don’t Say

Having the choice to go after your dreams
Learning to see the truth though smoke screens
Trusting your gut seems to be the only way to survive
Even when your inner voice fails you
You gotta let experience guide you
Making mistakes is all part of this trip called life

Don’t say you’ll stay
Don’t say you’ll stay
Don’t say you’ll stay
And then go back home

Packing your bags you leave your home town today
Taking the chance to do things your own way
Trusting your faith, and praying to God, to help and get you there
Don’t look back, and second guess your choices
Live and learn, and find out what your voice is
You must be brave you must be true to who you are, baby

Don’t say you’ll stay
Don’t say you’ll stay
Don’t say you’ll stay
And then go back home

I hope that you will, I hope that you won’t
I hope that you will give it a chance, give it a chance it takes time
I hope that you will, I hope that you won’t
I hope that you will give it a chance.

Having the choice to go after your dreams
Learning to see the truth though smoke screens
Trusting your gut seems to be the only way to survive
Even when your inner voice fails you
You gotta let experience guide you
Making mistakes is all part of this trip called life

Don’t say you’ll stay
Don’t say you’ll stay
Don’t say you’ll stay
And then go back home

Forever

Written By: Tara and Rick Eberle

Forever

Long before I ever said goodbye to all the lies
Why you gotta waste my time
Long ago I never said what was on my mind
Why you gotta waste my time

I want to be with you forever
I want to be with you forever
I want to be with you….
Forever

Years ago I never thought we would reach this far
Why you gotta waste my time
Years before I’ll be replaced will it leave a scar?
Why you gotta waste my time

I want to be with you forever
I want to be with you forever
I want to be with you…
Forever

It’s valuable to me so I can understand how could be this way
I’ve often wondered if there’s something I should say

I want to be with you forever I want to
Hold you close I can’t be free
‘Cause I can’t be alive I can’t hold back
I’m here with you I won’t let go

I want to be with you forever
I want to be with you forever
I want to be with you forever…etc…

History in the Making

The form of this song is verse, chorus, verse, chorus, with a bridge.

Verse rhyme scheme “aabb”
The news isn’t always good
Wish someone had told me to stop knocking on wood
And wishes don’t always come true
Wish someone had told me I had no clue

Chorus rhyme scheme “aabb”
If it’s meant to be
Who are we cause
What will be will be
We’re history in the making
Verse rhyme scheme “aabb”
I’m at a loss for words
I’ve nothing left to say
I’m out of luck
But I’m standing here today
I’m hopeful now
I’m grateful, bow down
Make mistakes because you’re only human

Chorus rhyme scheme “aabb”
If it’s meant to be
Who are we cause
What will be will be
We’re history in the making

My only wish is to be unafraid
How can I touch the sky from so far away?

True

Written By: Tara and Rick Eberle

True

It all started when I saw you at the party and I,
caught you glance my way
Maybe you were nervous, or you were just thinking of, something clever to say

Well by God don’t take too long,
cause’ I’m not gonna wait for ever
If you want to try and impress me then,
you don’t need to be clever

Two hours later we were talking about everything,
I felt our chemistry
Now I’m thinking about our future,
and what we could be

Well by God don’t take too long,
cause’ I’m not gonna wait for ever
If you want to try and impress me then,
you don’t need to be clever

You must be real and strong,
brave enough to admit when you’re wrong
And honest and true, cause if I’m gonna be with you
There are just a few things that I expect from you

Well thank God you didn’t too long,
cause I wouldn’t have waited forever
In time I learned all about you, you are my treasure

Cause’ you were sweet, and kind,
I knew our love would last a lifetime
And you were too good to be true.
You’re my living proof that sometimes dreams do actually come true

Faster

Written By: Tara and Rick Eberle

Faster

I’m doing the best I can do (can’t go any faster, go any faster)
It’s never good enough for you (can’t go any faster, go any faster)
What do you what me see? (I can’t go any faster, go any faster)
Who do you want me to be? (I can’t go any faster, go any faster)

It’s out of my hands now
Gotta leave it up to fate
It’s gonna be any time now
Better things will come my way

I’m working as hard as I can (can’t go any faster, go any faster)
But you never understand (can’t go any faster, go any faster)
What do you want me to say? (I can’t go any faster, go any faster)
I’m sick of these games that you play (can’t go any faster, go any faster)

It’s out of my hands now
Gotta leave it up to fate
It’s gonna be any time now
Better things will come my way

When it comes I want you here with me
So won’t you stay?
You and I will both be free but I know
It’s better this way…

It’s out of my hands now
Gotta leave it up to fate
It’s gonna be any time now
Better things will come my way
