Biography

TriPod's music reflects it's surroundings, like the city they live in, NYC,..."It's loud, cultured, aggressive, with a dynamic and intense energy".

One reviewer described TriPod's music as," a mixture of King Crimson, Cheap Trick and John Coltrane, yet TriPod has no equals in the rock world because there is nothing like it in the rock world".

Lyrics

No Diamond Cries

Written By: Keith Gurland - music / Clint Bahr - lyrics

Strange and far
Aloof you are
A diamond star
Is who you are

Distance sighs
You steal the prize
Oblique, no ties
No diamond cries

You walk the walk
And talk the talk
You walk that walk
And you talk that talk

Spiked heel high
No alibi
On silken streets
No diamond cries

You walk the walk
And talk the talk
You walk that walk
And you talk that talk

Diamond eyes
No diamond cries

Jerome's Spotlight

Written By: Clint Bahr - words & music

There's a chain - one hell'va chain
Stretching out from boot to bonnet
It's a strain - one hell'va strain
Crashing down

Watch that step - it's a hell'va step
No safety net's there to stop ya.
Catch a grip or let it slip
It's a high-wire ride.

Same old clown hangin' round
Don't let the big top fool ya.
It's a strain - one hell'va strain
Crashing down

The rope's too tight
Where you're standing
Afraid of falling?
The rope's too tight.

It's a cage - one hell'va cage
Never let the big swing fail ya
It's a strain - one hell'va strain
Crashing down

Dance of the Kabuki

Written By: Clint Bahr - words & music

The temple bright with sound and light
Not a character in sight
Oh, darkness

Seated in the audience an unassuming spectator
Awaiting the arrival of the mask
Oh what a task these actors have
Bringing life to such a source

Creation - The Blackness of the Stage
Suddenly brought alive by puppet men
White faces and black figurines
Construct the scene of a princess's dream
A lover that she once had
Lost to an Oriental cause
Tears are acted behind screen
Believe me, it's true
Conceive if you will - The Dance of the Kabuki

The temple bright with sound and light
Now the character's in sight
Oh, sadness

Morning - The Rising Sun
Shines burning rays upon the land
A grand dynasty, silver silks and gold
Unfold to show great wealth.
But, alas, must it be "No lover for thee"?
She weeps day in and day out
Believe me, it's true
Conceive if you will
The Dance of the Kabuki

Suicide in willowy white
Harakari, the rite
Oh…..

Evening - The Setting Sun
Brings along the verdict
"Life must end to begin for me," she claims.
A golden dagger in her hand
Turns warm flesh to stone
Alone no more
Lovers in this Oriental heaven
Believe me, it's true.
Conceive if you will
The Dance of the Kabuki
