Biography

Randy Von Allmen grew up in the north east suburbs of Detroit, in the home of a preacher - his mom. As a teenager in the mid 70's, he used to sneak to bed at night with headphones listening to the likes of Aerosmith and Rush. In the summer of 1977 that he saw his first rock concert and his life would never be the same. "I always dreamed of performing my own songs - doing cover material just never appealed to me. I like to write simple songs people can remember and sing along with."

In his first year of college in Springfield, MO, Randy found himself playing on some fairly large stages with the likes of BJ Thomas ("Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head") and Petra ("Washes Whiter Than"). At the time, Randy was writing songs and rehearsing with a couple of friends that would later form the alternative metal band, King's X.

Now, twenty something years later, Randy just released his first CD as frontman of a band he named TriPart. "TriPart is the notion that humans exist in three separate and distinct parts - body, soul, and spirit." While their music spans a broad range of styles and textures, Randy refers to it as ''Alternative Message Music'', and that's exactly what it is.

TriPart's first release "Beneath the Surface" stands out both lyrically and musically. One can hear the musical influences of Rush, Steely Dan, and Aerosmith in many of their songs.

Lyrics

One Thing

Written By: Von Allmen

Is there any one thing, or any one form
Any one answer or any real norm
One thing's for certain I'm sure you'll agree
We all find our future in sweet, destiny

Is there one song to sing
Is there one gift to bring
Is there one game to play
Is there one prayer to pray

Is there any one thing, or any one form
Any one answer or any real norm
One thing's for certain I'm sure you'll agree
We all find our future in sweet, destiny

Is there one key to find
Is there one genius mind
Is there one single tear
Is there one God to fear

Is there any one thing, or any one form
Any one answer or any real norm
One thing's for certain I'm sure you'll agree
We all find our future in sweet, destiny

Thy Kingdom Come

Written By: Von Allmen

I hear the battle cry
Take your position please don't deny
Lift up your eyes to see
Fulfilling prophecy
His time has finally come
His will will now be done

Thy kingdom come - Thy will be done
Here on the earth - As it is in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread
As we forgive those who tresspass against us
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us, deliver us from evil

Thy kingdom come - Thy will be done
Here on the earth - As it is in heaven

I will possess this land
And work at His commanding love for me
His word is my sword
And I call him my Lord

Double-Minded Man

Written By: Ferraiuolo

A house divided cannot stand
It's like a house that's built on nothing but sinking sand
Truth and deception lie in the dark
Who receives my correction is the wise man at heart

You gotta make a choice
You gotta make a stand
Or you may be a double minded man

You're like a ship on the ocean in a raging sea
With really no firm direction and really no place to be
A double minded man blows in the wind
He's like a weed that tumbles around like a top that spins

You gotta make a choice
You gotta make a stand
Or you may be a double minded man

Jerusalem

Written By: Ferraiuolo

Jerusalem, Jerusalem
The city of great things, a city of great kings
Jerusalem, Jerusalem
On the out skirts of town, I hear that hammer sound

Three crosses stand on Calvary's hill
Sentenced with the guilty as time stands still
Exchanged for sin, condemned by the law
Healing for those scared by the fall

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem

And in a new and living way, He brings hope to the lost
The debt for all mankind was paid, and suffered on that cross
Spirit calls to spirit now, the offer of His grace
A second Adam from above, in Him the second race

It's the end of a chapter the turn of a page
Grace is revealed like the dawn of an age
The gift of His spirit, gift of His Son
Offers new life, the victory is won

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem

Addicted

Written By: Von Allmen

We're all addicted, somewhat conflicted
We're captive by our pleasures from our pain
We're all addicted, somewhat conflicted
Obsessive to the core, we always want for more
We're all addicted

There's a hole in your soul, a hole in your sole
Where pleasure from the pain
Steals your heart once again

We're all addicted, somewhat conflicted
We're captive by our pleasures from our pain
We're all addicted, somewhat restricted
The more we seek to gain, the more that we remain
We're all addicted

There's a hole in your soul, a hole in your sole
Where pleasure from the pain
Steals your heart once again

Take Me Away

Written By: Von Allmen

I hear your desparation calling
I hear the heartache in your voice
I know the sadness that you carry
I sometimes think it's just your choice

You say, "Take me away, take me away from here"

You feel the coldness all around you
You hear those voices in your head
The pain inside your body lingers
You'd think it better to be dead

You say, "Take me away, take me away from here"

Come to the table, a table of love
Why don't you rest as your seated
It's what you're dreaming of
Where peace like a river, flows from high above

I say, "Take me away, take me away from here"
I say, "Take me away, take me away from here"
