about

This is our 5th full length album. We feel very proud of this project and think it to be our best yet! Everything on this album was done from within the group - from the writing to finished product ( everything except the printing and duplication of course). We recorded the basic tracks and lead vocals on 2 inch tape, then transferred the project to Protools to finish tracking and mixing.
There are many themes on this album. The Title comes from the track " Pull Our Stuff Together" when talking about the metaphorical ship whose bolts are "falling one by one into the Sea Of Truth." There is a common theme between the title and the final track, " Can't Hide From The Light." The Idea that the soul inside you is always the truth whether tragic or wonderful ( could go on for days about this, but we'll leave it to you the listener!). Songs were written from personal experiences, fictional situations, as well as tributes to fallen friends.

Enjoy!

Track Name: Pull Our Stuff Together
Pull Our Stuff Together
By Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
©2014

The Ship was rattling
The bolts were all coming loose
One by one they’re falling deep into the see of truth
How can we be set free
When we’re sinking where we stand
There is no denying now that fate had the upper hand

Whoa
We’ve got to pull our stuff
Pull our stuff together
Whoa
We can make it through
Make it through this weather

Everything was ready
The weather was looking nice
Gas in the tank and the wind in our sails
we’re onward to paradise
But, just like a sleeper wave
It hit us by surprise
Washed away the future hope we held within our eyes

Woah
We’ve got to pull our stuff
Pull our stuff together
Whoa
We can make it through
Make it through this weather
Doesn’t matter what a fool you’ve been
Doesn’t matter what a mess you’re in
You’ve got to try
Try to make it better
Woah
We’ve got to pull our stuff
Pull our stuff together
Track Name: The Last Time
Last Time
by Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
©2014

Used to be your boyfriend
but not anymore
because you didn’t act nice to me
Used to be your working dog
Working down to the core
But I never got a measly raise

Used to be your: Robot, Drone, Stepping Stone, Door Mat, Floor Mat
Call it what you want, but I’m not gonna be that
Anymore

Tired of bein’ abused by you
used by you
Slapped in the face for the things I do for you! oooh
I don’t think that a thing I say goes your way
You’re incapable of appreciating truth
Got nothin’ to loose
This is the last time
oh Last time

Used to think you loved me
Boy I was wrong
How could I think of something so absurd
You used to like my mother fuckin’ money
but when it was gone you just kicked me right to the curb

Used to be your lame duck, dumb fuck, Door Matt, Floor Matt
Call it what you want, but I’m not gonna be that
Anymore

Tired of bein’ abused by you
used by you
Slapped in the face for the things I do for you! oooh
I don’t think that a thing I say goes your way
You’re incapable of appreciating truth
Got nothin’ to loose
This is the last time
oh Last time

This is the last time
This is the last time
This is the last time oh Last time

I can see you running
Where do you draw the line
I can see you reaching
Reaching for the highest star

I’ve watched you close
I’ve watched you close
I’ve watched you close
you put it higher than most
Higher than most
Higher than most

You won’t find me standin’
Down at the end of this road
Telephone’s been ringin’
Telling you your soul’s not sold

I’ve watched you close
I’ve watched you close
I’ve watched you close
you put it higher than most
Higher than most
Higher than most

Stay with me one more moment
And breath with me, yeah
You can seek your dreams
But just don’t let them take you from me
Stay with me

Slowly sink into the sea
I don’t know just where I’ll be
if I need you and you need me
Slowly sink into the sea
I don’t know just where I’ll be
if I need you and you need me

I’ve watched you close
I’ve watched you close
I’ve watched you close
you put it higher than most
Higher than most
Higher than most


Stay with me one more moment
And breath with me, yeah
You can seek your dreams
But just don’t let them take you from me
Stay with me

Stay with me one more moment
And breath with me, yeah
You can seek your dreams
But just don’t let them take you from me
Stay with me
Track Name: Skin and Bones
Skin and Bones
by Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
© 2014

Always gotta be the last one there
late enough to make a pass on, yeah
And I know, and I know, and I know , and I know
It’s not really black or white
But, my collar’s wet with beads
And I’ve got no new leads
Should I go, should I go, should I go, should I go
and satisfy all my needs

You only skin and Bones
Pheromones
Don’t leave us alone, Don’t leave us alone
Should I take you home
Sin and moan
Never meant to last
Only skin and bones

I could wear a saddle and a feedbag
Confined to a cubicle, who needs that?
And I know, and I know, and I know,
I really should play it safe
But you’re hot like a barrel of a .45
Shoot right through me, make me feel alive
Should I go, should I go, should I go, should I go,
I really can’t stand the heat

Oh _ _ _ _
It’s not real
you can’t tell me what I feel
Oh _ _ _ _
let me go let me be
the things i’ll do..it’s not really me

You only skin and Bones
Pheromones
Don’t leave us alone, Don’t leave us alone
Should I take you home
rent to own
Never meant to last
Only skin and bones



Oh, I try so hard
try to make the best of my “situation”
Oh, have I gone too far?
Have I succumbed to my imagination
Oh _ _ _
Skin and bones skin and bones
never leave me alone
oh _ _ _
let me go, let me be
it seams I’ll never be free from

skin and Bones
Pheromones
Don’t leave us alone, Don’t leave us alone
Should I take you home
Sin and moan
Never meant to last
Only skin and bones

You only skin and Bones
Pheromones
Don’t leave us alone, Don’t leave us alone
Should I take you home
rent to own
Never meant to last
Only skin and bones
Track Name: Hold You
Hold You
By spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
© 2014

It’s a sign from the sky, one that I can’t deny
I want to be holding you
This is why I always cry whenever we say goodbye
I want to be holding you

I’m blind when I’m in your eyes
I can feel no lies
Everything’s totally new with you
I feel so true with you
Hold you

Underneath our flannel sheets
Or maybe just at the beach
I want to be holding you
In the sun or in the cold
I’ll hold you until we’re old
I want to be holding you

oh

I’m blind when I’m in your eyes
I can feel no lies
Everything’s totally new with you
I feel so true with you
Hold you
Hold you
I just wanna squeeze you
Hold
Hold you
Track Name: Lose Control
Loose Control
by Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
© 2013

Forgive me for what I’ve done
I just wanted to have fun
Say what I say and not be on the run
From the man with the smoking gun
for a little while

Did not mean to offend you
you don’t know what I’ve been through
Don’t mean to be rude
but I’ve just gotta be
Gotta be wild and free
for a little while

I go a little bit crazy
I, I’m gonna loose control
yeah I’m a little bit crazy
Let me loose control! yeah.

The pressure, I can’t kick it
I’m gonna blow a spigot
and my mind is dumb
I’m always in the sun
and it’s melting all my fun
for a little while

If I forget to tell you
Just where I’m going to go to
if there’s any room then
I’ll be on the moon
Laughing like a loon
for a little while

I go a little bit crazy
I I’m gonna loose control
yeah I’m a little bit crazy
Let me loose control!

( That’s it, I quit, now the table’s about to tip hey hey hey hey )
( pressures on, Mind’s gone, now it’s time to light the bomb hey hey hey hey )

I go a little bit crazy
I I’m gonna loose control
yeah I’m a little bit crazy
I I I I I I I I
Track Name: Disconnect the Line
Disconnect the Line
Written by Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
© 2013

I go dark when Lights are on
Body’s parked, but… but, my mind is gone
My mind is gone
Clouds are swirling round my head
Can’t latch on to anything you’ve said
Haven’t told you anything
but you know where I’ve been

Failure to connect for too much time
Leaves me feeling recked inside my mind
Hours are long and days have not been kind
Maybe it’s time to disconnect the line
Maybe it’s time to disconnect the line

Mirror ball in outer space
If I look will I see my face
See my face
Endless possibilities
I never die and oh, I’ll never bleed
When they come to suck my soul…
They won’t know where to go

Failure to connect for too much time
Leaves me feeling recked inside my mind
Hours are long and days have not been kind
Maybe it’s time to disconnect the line
Maybe it’s time to disconnect the line
Disconnect the line

Failure to connect for too much time
Leaves me feeling recked inside my mind
Hours are long and days have not been kind
Maybe it’s time to disconnect the line
Maybe it’s time to disconnect the line
Maybe it’s time to disconnect the line
Disconnect the line
Track Name: Heart Thief
Heart Thief / Heart of Gold
By Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
© 2014

By the time you figure everything out
I’ll already be holding on to your heart of gold
And if you think that there is some doubt
Let me reassure you that my love is bold

Spent all my money
yeah, but I didn’t loose a penny
Used all my credit
Yeah, cause I knew that I would get it
Don’t have to sneak into your dreams at night
To bring our sweet love to light

By the time you figure everything out
I’ll already be holding on to your heart of gold
And if you think that there is some doubt
Let me reassure you that my love is bold

Went undercova’
Yeah, cause I knew that I would love ya
You came right to me
Yeah, but you could have seen right through me
Don’t have to put my X-ray goggles on
to see that it’s already gone

By the time you figure everything out
I’ll already be holding on to your heart of gold
And if you think that there is some doubt
Let me reassure you that my love is bold

By the time you figure everything out
I’ll already be holding on to your heart of gold
And if you think that there is some doubt
Let me treasure you that my love is bold
Track Name: The Calling
The Calling
by Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
© 2014

The calling, if you listen, you can’t miss it
It’s everything you were meant to be
Can you hear it?
Calling you out?

You’re falling. No matter where you come from
you can’t run from the footprints that were left before you came
Can you hear them?
Calling you out?

and now I see the sun on the horizon
Feel the warm sweet rays upon my skin
Now I hear the waves crash at my doorstep
Open up the door and let them in
Ah_______

I kiss you on the face now
and I know how I’ll be spending the rest of my days
Being near you
Calling you out

It seems that every path I’ve chosen is interwoven
But every road has lead me back to you
and I hear you
Calling me out

and now I see the sun on the horizon
Feel the warm sweet rays upon my skin
Now I hear the waves crash at my doorstep
Open up the door and let them in
Ah_______

hear the calling
hear the calling
hear the calling
(repeat)
Track Name: Leave This Conversation
Leave this Conversation
By Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
©2014

So, you think no ones listen to the world of shit you’re in?
That’s not real.
And, there’s a chance you didn’t get my call
I’ve seen other people fall for the same thing

Why couldn’t you say what you needed
about all of the hurt that’s deep seeded
and not leave
We’ve been together for so long
Now you just go and break this bond
yeah yeah and leave

When your whole world is falling down
( Talk it out, talk it out. Don’t leave this conversation)
Open your heart and Tie a string
( Talk it out, talk it out. Don’t leave this conversation)
So when you reach the very end
( Talk it out, talk it out. Don’t leave this conversation)
You can still your way back home
( Talk it out, talk it out. Don’t leave this conversation)

Hey, you know you might have a better life
Depending on how you use the knife that I gave you
But, before you go and cut the rope
just hold on to a glimmer of hope from our past life

Why couldn’t you say what you’re wanting
‘bout all of the things that were haunting
Your sad soul
We’ve been together for so long
Now you just go and break this bond
Yeah and leave

When your whole world is falling down
( Talk it out, talk it out. Don’t leave this conversation)
Open your heart and Tie a string
( Talk it out, talk it out. Don’t leave this conversation)
So when you reach the very end
( Talk it out, talk it out. Don’t leave this conversation)
You can still your way back home
( Talk it out, talk it out. Don’t leave this conversation)
Track Name: Mother Earth
Mother Earth
By Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
© 2013

Children listen to your mother Earth
Children listen to your mother Earth
 
Reach up to her sky
And feel the earth under your feet
Swim in her ocean
And breathe her air, oh so sweet
She’s telling us to slow down
Don’t just try to make ends meet
She’s got everything
Everything little thing that we need
 
Children listen to your mother Earth
Children listen to your mother Earth
 
Growing up with the sun
Beaming down upon your face
She’s the only one
So don’t let her love go to waste
Little bit of thunder and rain wash away the pain
Didn’t your mamma tell you
don’t use her name in vain?
 
Children listen to your mother Earth
Children listen to your mother Earth
 
Hey!
(Children listen)
Listen to your mother
(To your mother Earth)
She’ll tell you what you’ve got to do
Hey!
(Children listen)
Listen to your mother
(to your mother earth)
And she’ll be good to you     

Children listen to your mother Earth X2
Listen to your mother X2
Track Name: Can't Hide From the Light
Can’t Hide From the Light
by Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
© 2014

I didn’t ask for this
Some would pay cash for this
It’s the best damn ride to the bottom of the bottomless pit
Gun’s on the windowsill
This time it’s shoot to kill
No way out but right back to the top of that that hill

And they say that Help is on the way
But I know that nothing’s gonna change
You know that the truth will save the day
But they left me here bleeding in the rain

You can’t hide from the light
It’s on the inside
Truth will find you alone in the night
You can’t hide

I’ve seen through teller’s eyes
And I cant stop this heist
Wide eyed surprised as they fill up their big black bag full of little white lies
Cause it’s a stand off between the truth and cost
Souls lay in the balance
some are saved and some are lost

And they say that Help is on the way
But I know that nothing’s gonna change
You know the truth will save the day
But they left me here bleeding in the rain

You can’t hide from the light
It’s on the inside
Truth will find you alone in the night
You can’t hide

You can’t hide from the light
It’s on the inside
Truth will find you alone in the night
You can’t hide
