Biography

Inspiration and motivation are found in those moments in life when you finally feel free or “unstuck” and ready to move on to new challenges.

They are also found in Orleck’s new CD, Gray Suburban Day produced by Anthony J. Resta (Collective Soul, Duran, Duran, Shawn Mullins.) Orleck reflects on his long road to musical salvation. “It’s definitely tested my patience, but it’s always been in my heart. I think that’s what sustained me, especially through some of the tough times. But now that things are starting to click, especially here in New York, where people have really seemed to embrace both me and this style of music, I’m very excited about the future.”

Focused on the goal of moving you forward in life by interrupting your bad habits, Orleck gives us true insight into the traps we fall in and what we should be looking for. The songs, emotionally charged and vividly descriptive, paired with Orleck’s powerful, yet at times, hauntingly tender voice, sets the sonic landscape for these telling crossroads.

In the featured song, Touch, he reminds us of the mistake we all make of going back to relationships that were anything but good for us. Instead of getting away from them and moving on in life, we somehow feel we failed and keep trying to
fix them.

Instead of spending our time and energy in the wrong relationships, we need to focus on the right ones. In the song, Open, he reminds us of the value of the person who believes in our vision for ourselves even when it seems like we have nothing to offer them. While it is rare to find a person who wants to inspire and help us accomplish what we want, we need to build upon those relationships and become a source of motivation for them as well.

While it can be difficult to find the right person, we seem to find a whole other generation of the wrong ones once we start to follow what we are supposed to do and become successful. It’s Not Here reminds us that all sorts of people become attracted to us because of the money they can spend or the material objects they feel they can get from us.

Life is based upon relationships. As you know, some are good and some are bad. For you to become who you really are, the desire and vision has to come from you. Orleck’s Gray Suburban Day is a chronicle of that vision.

Lyrics

open

Written By: orleck

You hung around to see where this would lead
You were relentless with your attitude
You made me see
And if I could sum it up for you I would say

Lover lover
you made me high
Lover lover
you help me to make it
through the night
And you just open up to me like the night sky

Then there was the color green I could see
And it was warmer than the atmosphere
An iris to believe
And what could a guy whose lost in forests unseen say to you that you might never see.

Lover lover
you made me high
Lover lover
you help me to make it
through the night
And you just open up to me like the night sky

It could have been a Gray Suburban Day
It could have been a white line in the night
It could have been a nasty situation
Another hit on my bedpost

Lover lover
you made me high
Lover lover
you help me to make it
through the night
And you just open up to me like the night sky

the shakes

Written By: orleck

I’m feeling nervous
You are so far from me
And I’m feeling nervous
We’re sharing the misery

I need you to hold me
And give me your honesty
I know I’m just tweaking cause your not there
Separation anxiety

I say this love is like heroin
I think I’m getting the shakes again
I say I don't get enough

I'm getting the shakes
I'm getting the shakes
I'm getting the shakes
it's too much to take

I’m feeling nervous, I’m feeling nervous
Incredibly nervous

Everything’s boring
The ceiling looks back at me
I turn on the TV
It only plays reruns of "Three's Company"

I say this love is like heroin
I think I’m getting the shakes again
I say I don’t get enough

I’m feeling nervous
Incredibly nervous

I'm getting the shakes
I'm getting the shakes
I'm getting the shakes
it's too much to take

touch

Written By: orleck

You've never been touched by this
I hand it down to you
You've never been loved by much
I'm hoping you can learn enough to get away

It's the touch that broke you down
It's the heart behind the frown
It's the hate behind the clouds
It's the innocence that's gone

You watch it fall away
centered in the sway
You long for more than this
I'm hoping you can learn enough to get away

It's the touch that broke you down
It's the heart behind the frown
It's the hate behind the clouds
It's the innocence that's gone

One breath is all that it took
Your art of stealing a look
And if you saw above yourself you'd know

And it's tearing you apart
yet you wish it'd never stopped
And you can't release
Oh the sweet release

And those voices in your head
while your swinging on a thread
You never listen
Why can't you listen

Your addicted to your pain
and you want it to refrain
Oh you let it go
Still you want to know

how you ended up this time
with words that never rhyme
And you wish that it could stop!

It's the touch that broke you down
It's the heart behind the frown
It's the hate behind the clouds
It's the innocence that's gone

It's the touch that broke you down
It's the heart behind the frown
It's the hate behind the clouds
It's the innocence that's gone

One touch is all that it took
Your art of stealing a look
And if you saw above yourself you'd know

It's not here

Written By: Orleck

Train wreck in your smile
Cried for fourty miles
I'm just tryin to drive this car
Chewing off my ear
Cracked another beer
Just enough to numb the lies

Whats wrong with the picture here
Your Gucci bag just sitting there
Fed up with this waste of time
We're heading or the exit sign

Whatever you wanted you got it
And now that you got it
you don't want it anymore
Whatever you wanted it's not here
Its not here

Fifty pairs of shoes
BMW's
I'm just trying to write some tunes
I think it's pretty sad
I paid for your rehab
when all you do is bring me down

What's wrong with the picture here
Your buzz kill breaks the atmosphere
Fed up with the shallow lines
The liposuction's killing time

Whatever you wanted you got it
And now that you got it
you don't want it anymore
Whatever you wanted it's not here
Its not here

She said she won't go there
Cause she don't like trailer trash
And i'm always sober now
and i don't like that

Whatever you wanted you got it
And now that you got it
you don't want it anymore
Whatever you wanted it's not here
Its not here

Runaway

Written By: Orleck

You found out I never took you very seriously
Time went by and we were casual indefinitely
Had to leave but I'm not sure
if that would benefit only me
You came back today as I was sipping my cup of coffee

Why Diane?
You never wanted anyone but me
Why do I always want to run away?

Tell me girl cause I can't for the life of me lay it down
Sweep it under my emotional egyptian area rug
Heard you laugh at a crowd of people at the show
It left me cold and
I'm sure of this that you will never know

Why Diane?
You never wanted anyone but me
Why do I always want to run away?

It's just a day

Written By: Orleck

Candi. You said take it easy
You said that if I could shut the demons out
I’d get a lot more done

In this world
Life is much harder
The things you lose inside your heart
Define you from the start

Now that I’ve gone away
I’m hearing those words that you used to say
When I’d lose my way

It’s just a day
It’s just a day
It’s just a day
It’s just a day. She’d say

This path is riddled with conflict
If I could choose another way
Some days I think I would

But you had a way to reassure me
That everything would be alright
And get me through the night

Now that I’m on my way
I’m living those words that you used to say
When I lose my way

It’s just a day
It’s just a day
It’s just a day
It’s just a day. She’d say

You’ve done enough

Now that I’m here to stay
I’m hearing those words that you always say
When I lose my way

It’s just a day
It’s just a day
It’s just a day
It’s just a day. She’d say
