True Wheel

True Wheel

BandRockAlternative

We are a power trio. Drums, Bass and guitar, with very much of a progressive influence, however while being more musically challenging to play, it is more melodic and radio friendly than other progressive acts. Often, we cross over into adult alternative and straight rock.

Biography

True Wheel started as a cover band back in 1996. We played the Jersey shore circuit and were quite successful. At a time when classic rock and "party bands" were EVERYWHERE, we offered an alternative by playing progressive, and 90's alternative/grung tunes. We began writing in 1997 and had a solid original set. We had a different name as a cover band (Inertia), but our loyal fans knew our alter-ego, True Wheel. We began merging our original act into our cover act and converted many Inertia fans to "True" believers! Our strongest influences on the original side are Kings X and Rush. Both power trios. Pisani's vocal range is pretty big!!!! He can hit the highs and reach down to the lows. We layer vocals and use technology to make a huge sound. Pisani uses harmonizers for live vocals and Bill plays 12 string Hamer basses. Our fans often comment on the fact that we sound like six or seven musicians. OUr originals have been featured on local musician compliation and local radio promotional CDs.

Lyrics

Take Me Under

Written By: Michael Pisani

I took the Bridge into the city yesterday.
Thought that this would be the day I see the sign.
Talked to an angel in the middle of my street. Said she'd save me if I just make up my mind.
Teach me little sister.
Come and save me from myself.
Say the word and I'll be healed.
Little sister, there can be no one else.
Take me over the bridge, sacred angel.
Take me over into your light.
Take me under, sacred angel.
Take me under your wing tonight.
I caught an angel in the middle of my street and she told me what I needed to hear.
We took the bridge out of the city hand in hand to the water where the darkness is nothing to fear.
Come and save me, little sister.
Come and lead me to your light.
Say the word and I'll be healed.
Little sister, come and be with me tonight.
Take me over the bridge, sacred angel.
Take me over into your light.
Take me under, sacred angel.
Take me under your wing tonight.

Let It Go

Written By: Michael Pisani

Break me down to build me up and cleans my soul again.
Lead me over to hallowed ground and let my spirit mend.
Pull me up again, lift me over the wreckage. >
Turn the corner and help me find a way to let it go.
>
There must be a way for me.
>
Let it go.......
I just can't seem to let it go.
Lunacy or criminal.
Lift me over the eb and flow.
I just can't seem to let it go.
Seems to me the world's become a place of bitter agony.
Innocence and happiness replaced by pain and apathy.
Pull me up again.
Lift me over the wreckage. >
Turn the corner and help me find a way to let it go.
>
There must be a way for me.
>
Let it go.......
I just can't seem to let it go.
Lunacy or criminal.
Build me up to bring me down.
Pull me up from this hallowed ground.
Lift me over the ebb and flow.
I just can't seem to let it go.
Lunacy or criminal.
I can't seem to let it go.
>
There must be a way for me.
>
Let it go......

My Happily Ever After

Written By: Michael Pisani

Carry me to be with her.
Take me to the only one who
Carelessly surrendered to the broken dreams of everyone.
Say a prayer to ease the heart of the
Only one who matters.
Help me be the keeper of the pieces that are shattered.
And she don't know that she's the only one that I adore.
And she don't know that she's the only one that I live for.
I can wait 'til the tears have turned to laughter.
And when we rendezvous can you be my happily ever after?
Captivated by her glance,
I gaze into her soul before she,
haplessly ignites the fire that burns a hole into the floor.
Let me be the one who keeps the flames under control.
Help me be the one to show the beauty in her soul.
And she don't know that she's my everlasting ecstacy.
And she can be the panacia to this presious agony.
I can wait 'til the tears have turned to laughter.
And when we rendezvous can you be my happily ever after.
Help me be the

Crush

Written By: Michael Pisani

Cavedog, come to the mountain side and walk with me.
Yeah, you never did know when your time had come.
She didn't know that she could crush me with a single word.
Don't look now, Cavedog, but I think you'd better run.
It seems my mind's caked up with filthy images of you.
Your name's the only word on my lips.
Can't seem to shake this crushing blow that you have delt to me.
Crushed between your pretty fingertips.
Turn your eyes away from me.
I can't bear to look at your face anymore.
Take this cup away from me.
Brings me back to your door.
Your retoric will be the death of me.
Your poison arrows torture my weary soul.
Pointed words from painted lips were more than I could bear.
Don't look now, Cavedog, but I think it's time to go.

Insomniac

Written By: Michael Pisani

Hey man, you're standing in my line of visibility.
I don't need to miss another golden opportunity.
I got a feeling there's not much I can say to make you change your mind.
I hope you packed yourself an oar for all the SH** you'll find.
>
It's just the scars from yesterday.
>
Just watch the seconds tick away.
>
I'll be lyin' awake here anyway.
>
I guess there's nothing left to say.
Yeah you know with the lights down low,
It's kinda hard to see your glow.
You should wait for the fog to dissapate.
But then again, I don't know.
It's getting late maybe you should go.
As for me I think I'm spending.
>
Another play another fight another splinter in the eye.
>
Another chance to get her right so don't be late, just let 'er fly.
Hey babe you stepped into my relm of possibilities.
I don't need to miss another shread of ugly contraversy.
I gotta feeling theirs not much I can say do to make you change your mind.
Well I hope you packed yourself a stone for all the axes you'll grind.
