Co-produced by Ben Anderton and Re•Issue 

All tracks arranged by Re•Issue

Basic tracks recorded at Marks Music on 09/12/19. Drums, guitar and bass all recorded simultaneously in the Marks studio.  Three takes for each song.  We used the best of the three.  This method helps to provide a more live and EDGEy feel - which is what Re•Issue is all about.

Track 1 - Something New (Willaman)

lyrics

verse I

Burn my nights

Up like Swisher Sweets

Tossed my red cups up like they was

Valentines to the street

And the girls

Oh the girls


chorus

But this feels like something new

Yeah it do

This feels like something new


verse II

Porch lights

Douse that cigarette

Like the lies I told ya

Just to get

With the girls

Oh the girls


Track 2 - Panic! (Willaman)

lyrics

verse I

The Trembling hand

The defunct mind

         Stumbles on a mystery

Douse the light

Fire up your mind

         Standing right in front of me


My restless blade

Your twitching eye

         Searching for a mystery

The slick black fear

The flailing Mind

         Standing right in front of you


Won't you take, won't you take it up high

An' I'll take, and I'll take it down low

          Burn it right in front of you

Won't you take it, won't you take it up high

I'll take it, take it down low

           Burning up inside of you


verse II

Flash start the fade

Fade start the fall

            Jaw to the stone and teeth to the air

The rictus grin

The broke down scheme

             Of chasing down a mystery


Won't you take, won't you take me up high

Don't you send me, send me down low

             Burning up in front of you




Track 3 - The Club (Barron)

lyrics

verse I

I don't believe the news today

cause I don't know what is true

Words and stories come our way

but no truth for me and you

Social media twists and turns

guide us to their plot

I'm confident that this is not

for what our fathers' fought


The leaders are in bed with any

who will help finance their way

Afraid to stand up and do what's right 

cause they all want their pay

I guess I'm just dreamin' and starry eyed

hoping for a hero

Stand up for right and down with wrong

and do it without ego


chorus

You're in the Club, or you're not

If you've got money, you'll be sought

They're greedy rich, self content

They could care less about us peasants

If you're in the middle class

you know it's all a loss

The Club expects you to kiss their ass

and PAY for all their costs


verse II

We're a nation of sheep easily led

have been since day one

The earth is flat and you're persecuted

until they're proven wrong

The inquisition is different today

but believe me it's still here

There's no room for opposing views

they'll scalp you and leave you there


There's anger hate and mistrust

fueled by many sources

Media and politics run by greed

just to fill their courses

Now I for one am not buyin' it 

their lies and selfish truths

To me it's all just bullshit

like a martini without vermouth


bridge

Do you believe in right or wrong

or is it just a convenient truth

Do you believe their's equality for all

if you do then show me the proof

The Club is always right never wrong

they change their views to suit their needs

But consistent with one thing that's for sure

because we know who their gonna bleed

Pay their costs

Pay their costs

Pay their costs

Pay their costs

Pay their costs NOW


(guitar)


verse III

Age to age person to person

we're told we're gettin' worse

But we're workin' hard and savin' up

so the Club can steal our purse

Now I'm not saying there's just one way

most of care what's up

But the  way they taint it and try to divide us

and serve us from their cup


WE NEED TO BE STRONG AND NEED TO BE FAIR

WE NEED TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT

WE NEED TO RESIST THE HATE AND THE BIAS

BE SURE AND GIVE THEM FLIGHT

STAND UP STAND UP AND BE HEARD

YOUR VOICE IT COUNTS STAND TALL

BE STRONG, BE COURAGEOUS, AND BE HEARD

LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL


You're in the Club, or you're not

If you've got money, you'll be sought

They're greedy rich, self content

They could care less about us peasants

If you're in the middle class

you know it's all a loss

The Club expects you to kiss their ass

and PAY for all their costs

PAY FOR ALL THEIR COSTS

PAY FOR ALL THEIR COSTS

PAY FOR ALL THEIR COSTS...

Track 4 - Drift Away (Willaman)

lyrics

verse I

Do you mean that 

         The way it sounds

The weight of your words

         All falling down

Is this it? huh

         That's how it seems, but

If there's no dreamer

          Then there's no dream

No dream

There's something beautiful

           To the fear

That there's something more then

            Not just being here


chorus

But right now

            It's you and I

And there is no how

            And there is no why

But tomorrow

            Who's to say

            We won't just drift away


verse II

There's alchemy

             In your belief

That turns magic

             Into concrete

There's something beautiful

             In you tears

When there's something more

             Than not just being here

      


Track 5 - Not Much Time (Barron)

lyrics

Not much time

Not much time

Not much time


verse I

She's runnin' tight

she's runnin' tonight

Got things on her mind to see

lookin' to fight

She's been though hell

not lookin' well

She' a fighter and survivor, yeh

you can tell


chorus

There's not much time

You know it's true

There's not much time

She'll see it through...


verse II

He's facing the time

Know's he crossed the line

He's runnin' from the truth

he's been unkind

He's half ashamed

that she's been pained

He's hurtin' and a jerkin'

time to face the fray

Well he's hurtin' and a jerkin'

time to face the fray


chorus

There's not much time

You know it's true

There's not much time

He'll see it through...


(guitar)


verse III

There's not much time

You know it's true

There's not much time

They'll see it through

There's not much time

You know it's true

There's not much time

They'll see it through...


He's duty bound

to see her now

Knows he's got a lot to lose

when and how

They're talkin' today

somehow...someway

Doesn't have a plan

but knows what to say


Well it's a sign

they're back in time

Worked through issues and pain

feelin' fine

Well it's ok

doin' fine today

Walkin' hand in hand

what can I say

Not much time got lovin' to do


Not much time...(got lovin' to do) oooo

Not much time...(they'll see it through) oooo

Not much time...ooooo.......

Track 6 - This Place Is A Wreck (Willaman)

lyrics

verse I

Dishes all broke

Her scent all gone

Kicked off casual

But came on so strong


chorus

Oh, this place is a wreck

Undecided, the broken hearted

           Current dragging them here, right here

Oh, this place is a wreck

Unrequited, no strength to fight it

           Current dragging them here


verse II

Stumble off the street

Came to rest in my lawn

Chill of November

Risin' blue as the dawn


Fell through a life

That just would not start

Languished in doldrums

Till it fell apart
