about

So back in 1963 as The Beatles went to record "Twist and Shout", one of their most famous songs...John Lennon had a cold that day, but they recorded all day anyway but saved that song til the end of the session so he could really blow out his voice! That's kinda what happened for us at this show, Joey's voice sounds good and raw. And since we always get requests to play this one live, here it is!

lyrics

Painted away the sun
For the picture I’d become
Color the sound of thunder in the distance
A lonely sky

Ghosts were giving chase
And the brush revealed your face
And then I mixed the pigments up
With venom and I’m a lonely god
Who can’t explain
Colliding characters
But from a bird’s eye point of view
Well, all the world is
Green and gold and grey to blue

Brightness falling from the ashes crawling
It’s alive… It’s alive… It’s alive…
Oh, it’s alive…

Painted a rising sun
And the clouds did come undone
Artificial thunder (artificial thunder) in the distance
The sirens cry

Here to take my place
With a mirror for a face
Last leg of the feedback loop
For devils and gods to even odds
And break away

Brightness falling from the ashes crawling
It’s alive… It’s alive… It’s alive…
Oh, it’s alive…

Here we go ’round the bend
Through the orbit once again
From a fate that we cannot defend

This little boy
Renews the promise of a man
For the future is ours to command

I’m dreaming on borrowed time
And I don’t want to wake
Can’t tell if I’m falling or I’m flying
Another leap of faith

Say goodbye and the sun goes down
Watch you turn the bend
But I remember the world is round
You’ll be back again

I stoke the fire in a statue’s heart
Nobody notices
The eyes of a ghost
In a haunted work of art
Watch it come alive

Oh It’s alive… It’s alive… Oh it’s alive…
