Song Lyrics

Here are the lyrics for the original songs on the Rock and Redemption EP and the New Music for Old Souls LP.

Bottle of Shame

I’ll be walkin down that endless road 

Cuz I ain’t stayin here no more 

I’ll be movin on and never lookin back 

Because I’ve taken all your flak and now it’s done 

 

All of the days I listened 

To you and your guilt trip 

Spreading your bottle of shame 

Drivin me to my knees with all of your small ideas 

But I’ve had enough and I’m done with the game because it’s 

 

Time for setting down this heavy load 

And I’m not dealin with you no more 

I’ll be movin on and never lookin back 

Because I’ve taken all your flak and now it’s done 

 



I’ve got a brand new vision  

I’m on a new trip  

I’m not drinking your bottle of shame  

Watching the world restore me even while you ignore me  

Cuz I have a heart and a name so you better learn it  

  

I’ll be walkin down that endless road  

Cuz I ain’t stayin here no more  

I’ll be movin on and never lookin back  

Because I’ve taken all your flak and now it’s done

Hot Summer Days  

This frozen tundra is not for me 

The cold bitter wind in my face 

The ice and the snow and the freezing rain 

Hey I gotta get out of this place 

But it won’t be long til we say good bye to this cold crucifying phase 

Till the music blasts and the frisbees fly cuz we’ve waited so long for the sun and the hot summer days 

And the warm summer nights, And the hot summer days, And the warm summer nights 

The earth comes alive as the temperatures rise 

And the trees and the diamonds unlock 

The time has arrived to emerge from cocoons 

There’s no way that we can be stopped 

We’re goin out on the town, out in the streets, catchin fire, catchin hell, catchin rays 

We’re out of our minds we’re feeling the heat cuz we’ve waited so long for the sun and the hot summer days 

And the warm summer nights, And the hot summer days, And the warm summer nights 

 

We’re goin out on the town, out in the streets, catchin fire, catchin hell, catchin rays 

We’re out of our minds we’re feeling the heat cuz we’ve waited so long for the sun and the hot summer days 

And the warm summer nights, And the hot summer days, And the warm summer nights 

And the hot summer days And the hot summer days 

And the hot summer days And the hot summer days

Redemption

I lost my way in the sunlight 

The path was open and plain 

Instead I went down some back road that curved until I went insane 

I’ve let down everyone I know 

My friends and family 

But knew I’d hit rock bottom when I knew I’d let down me 

Where is redemption, where is redemption for our lost goals         

Where is redemption for all lost souls 

I wandered down a wayward path so very lost and alone 

You could have had the final laugh and kicked me when I was down 

But you came round and picked me up off the ground 

The foundation that was laid was gone 

And I was sinking in sand 

I could have gone completely under but you reached out your hand 

There is redemption, there is redemption for our lost goals 

There is redemption, there is redemption for all lost souls 

There is redemption, there is redemption for our lost goals 

There is redemption for all lost souls 

                                            

Wonderful Evening 

I saw the falling sunlight dancing on your hair 

I felt the rising tension hanging in the air 

I glanced at you and found your smile beyond compare and 

I found you that wonderful evening 

Love felt true that wonderful evening 

 

The fields were glowing like a thousand starlit skies 

The dusk was settling as you echoed your surprise 

My heart was dancing to the laughter in your eyes and 

I found you that wonderful evening 

Love felt true that wonderful evening 

 

All night long we were lost in song and the song was new 

I took you in my arms what else was I to do 

 

We glowed so bright that night the ghouls went back to bed 

There were a mass of visions dancing in my head 

And then I found the things I saw were real instead and 

I saw you that wonderful evening 

Love felt true that wonderful evening 



The night passed quickly but we both were feeling strong  

We stayed awake and sang til well beyond the dawn  

By then we felt we’d been together all along and  

I found you that wonderful evening  

Love felt true that wonderful evening  

  

All night long we were lost in song and the song was new  

I took you in my arms what else was I to do  

  

I saw the falling sunlight dancing on your hair  

I felt the rising tension hanging in the air  

I glanced at you and found your smile beyond compare and  

I found you that wonderful evening  

Love felt true that wonderful evening  

Love was true and  

I found you that wonderful evening wonderful evening

The Whole World Struggles 

Another melancholy evening 

I’m not sure where I’m going and I’m less sure where I’ve been 

Maybe it’s just a funny feeling 

But everyone seems different since I knew them way back when 

I need some good vibes. I need vacation. I need for you to spend a little time with me 

I really wonder what happened to us? 

Is this the only way the world will ever be? 

 

You know the whole world struggles and we try to keep the faith every morning of our lives 

But it can feel much better when I see the love reflected in your eyes

 

Perhaps you find this unappealing   

I’m not trying to rain upon another sunny day   

But when I see the things I’m seeing   

I just have to believe that there can be a better way   

A way to keep life a little easy and make the old stuff seem like it’s a little new  



But hey I’m lucky and yah I know that  

Because at least I know I’m coming home to you  

You know the whole world struggles and we try to keep the faith every morning of our lives  

But it can feel much better when I see the love reflected in your eyes  

You know the whole world struggles and we try to keep the faith every morning of our lives  

But it can feel much better when I feel the love reflected in your eyes

Take These Wings 

Take these wings and fly to finer things until the wisdom sings around the world 

What happened to the Peace Love generation 

Somewhere along the line we lost our way 

We started out with so much expectation 

To change the world and dawn a brand new day 

But somewhere in our vanity we mostly lost our sanity 

And listened to the salesmen of hate 

It’s time to start our regeneration and time to stop the glorification 

Of smallish minds and smaller hearts (Female backups on this line) 

I hope it’s not too late for us to 

Take these wings and fly to finer things until the wisdom sings around the world 

So when the eagle flies it flies with clear sharp eyes.  Perhaps the world will rise and live as one. 

The time has come to create transformation 

To move the world to better, brighter days 

To finally reach the kind of liberation
