BandRockAcoustic

Music articulating the invisible. If everything happens for a reason, we ask 'what or who is the reason?' and create an atmosphere of sound and lyrics that explore the tension & release of those hard to define 'coincidences'. We also specialize in a good time, so get ready to rock out.

Biography

We're not really trying to sound like anybody. As a band we just agree that there is an ethos within us that needs to be expressed--with excellence and authenticity. This sense is what drives us to create an enviornment, especially live, in which we can explore and maybe encounter something bigger than ourselves. We are also partial to rocking your face off, and making you smile.

Lyrics

Two Voices

Written By: Monty Hobson

Verse 1:
Two voices in my head do ring
One of the right, one of the wrong thing
And I am scared to give to truth
The lies I’ve learned to reproduce

Pre-Chorus:
That I can do this on my own
Names will never break my bones

Verse 2:
The past is part of who you are
And every sin will leave a scar
A label that becomes your name
A letter worn, like scarlet shame

Pre-Chorus:
And I can’t do this on my own
Names have shattered all my bones

Chorus:
How do I do it, change the man I used to be?
How do I do it, change the name that follows me?

Verse 3:
I have been sold a thousand ways
To mute the past and kill the pain
But none of them can cure this ache
We bruise to bleed and break again

Pre-Chorus:
And I can’t do this on my own
Names have shattered all my bones

Chorus:
How do I do it, change the man I used to be?
How do I do it, change the name that follows me?
How do I do it?
How do I do it?

Bridge:
I’m so afraid, that I’ll never change

Chorus:
How do I do it, change the man I used to be?
How do I do it, change the name that follows me?
How do I do it, change the man I used to be?
How do I do it, change the name that follows me?
It follows me, follows me, follows me, that follows me

Set List

This is a typical set list. Shows may range from 25-40 minutes. We can always do more. We don't really like covers, but from time to time we'll pull out a golden oldy which we all like, often a familiar hymn.
