Watcher of the Skies, watcher of all...

Hold fast Hold on Nothing is a dream, yet in Changing faster It never seems to be here long Move on Turn 'round Just can't seem to find it, try and Reach out Hold out I cannot touch the wind I touch you Reach out Hold out Nothing here is real, try and Searching farther It almost seems to live until it Moves on Turns 'round Just can't seem to lose it, try and Hold fast Hold on I cannot ride the wind I ride you Hold fast Hold on Nothing is a dream until you Wake up Cry out Now it isn't real, now you Hold fast Nothing is a dream Hold on Just can't lose it now Move on Turning round and round Wake up You cannot ride the wind Hold fast Nothing is a dream Hold on Just can't lose it now Move on Turning round and round Wake up You cannot ride the wind

Ah look at all the lonely people....

I wanna live with a cinnamon girl I could be happy the rest of my life With a cinnamon girl. A dreamer of pictures I run in the night You see us together, chasing the moonlight, My cinnamon girl. Ten silver saxes, a bass with a bow The drummer relaxes and waits between shows For his cinnamon girl. A dreamer of pictures I run in the night You see us together, chasing the moonlight, My cinnamon girl. Pa sent me money now I'm gonna make it somehow I need another chance You see your baby loves to dance Yeah...yeah...yeah.

Why must you be such an angry young man?

To seek the sacred River Alph...

alone, left here in dust amidst my fears and doubts...

Leaves are falling all around, time I was on my way...

No one knows what it's like To be the bad man To be the sad man Behind blue eyes No one knows what it's like To be hated To be fated To telling only lies But my dreams They aren't as empty As my conscience seems to be I have hours, only lonely My love is vengeance That's never free No one knows what it's like To feel these feelings Like I do And I blame you No one bites back as hard On their anger None of my pain and woe Can show through But my dreams They aren't as empty As my conscience seems to be I have hours, only lonely My love is vengeance That's never free When my fist clenches, crack it open Before I use it and lose my cool When I smile, tell me some bad news Before I laugh and act like a fool If I swallow anything evil Put your finger down my throat If I shiver, please give me a blanket Keep me warm, let me wear your coat No one knows what it's like To be the bad man To be the sad man Behind blue eyes

Thinkin' 'bout the times you drove in my car. Thinkin' that I might have drove you too far. And I'm thinkin' 'bout the love that you laid on my table. I told you not to wander 'round in the dark. I told you 'bout the swans, that they live in the park. Then I told you 'bout our kid, now he's married to Mabel. Yes, I told you that the light goes up and down. Don't you notice how the wheel goes 'round? And you better pick yourself up from the ground Before they bring the curtain down, Yes, before they bring the curtain down. Talkin' 'bout a girl that looks quite like you. She didn't have the time to wait in the queue. She cried away her life since she fell off the cradle. (source - Google Play)

Under the ruins of a walled city Crumbling towers in beams of yellow light No flags of truce, no cries of pity The siege guns had been pounding through the night It took a day to build the city We walked through it's streets in the afternoon As I returned across the fields I'd known I recognised the walls that I once made I had to stop in my tracks for fear Of walking on the mines I'd laid And if I've built this fortress around your heart Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire Then let me build a bridge For I cannot fill the chasm And let me set the battlements on fire

about

Here's the next release from us here - shakin' and groovin' some classic tribute songs for your entertainment. Take the song below and add the following tracks - it should be a pretty darn good set of music if I do say so myself (and I do).

- Eleanor Rigby (Lennon, McCartney)
- Cinnamon Girl (Neil Young)
- Aqualung (Jethro Tull)
- Fooling Yourself (Styx)
- Xanadu (Rush)
- The Halcyon Days (The Tea Party)
- Ramble On (Led Zeppelin)
- Killer Queen (Queen)
- Behind Blue Eyes (The Who)
- Badge (Cream)
- Fortress Around Your Heart (Sting)
- Watcher of the Skies (Genesis)
- Phasors on Stun (FM)

These are tribute versions of the songs above - as in we the band are playing these and there is some reinterpretation happening. All the original writers are credited in the actual song list, and they are also getting their share of the purchase price of the song and album.

All the songs were recorded between 2005 and 2016 at Hyperboreal Studios, Washington State.

As for what the remaining money is going towards - we are writing our next album of brand new music with a plan to release in the Spring of 2017. All the proceeds not allocated to mechanicals and performance royalties go into the cookie jar to fund studio recording and CD replication for the new album. Cheers!!
