about

This album was supposedly recorded in Winter 2007 according to the liner notes - it actually spans back into 2006 - and through the middle of 2007 - but what does that matter? You can really feel the presence of every member of the Young Sinclairs in this album with Daniel Cundiff and Sean Poff taking lead vocals on a few tracks. This album also marks the beginning of John Thompson handling basically all of the engineering/mixing and really refining and expanding the Young Sinclairs sound with the use of reel-to-reel technology. Overall, it is a diverse album with much different textures and colors than the Sinclairs' debut album, "Feel Bad". In fact, it is a huge leap forward from that album not only in terms of sonic quality, but in the arrangements and the lyrical content - but who cares? Feel the sounds...

Track Name: Tribe
I could think forever about what to do and I won't get through
first of all jump in and try, see if you die

it's not that bad with the tribe on your side
if you don't have it then here's some of mine

if the silence comes you'll be O.K. I'll bring the day
when the night is done we won't get paid but love is made
do you think the sound is me? It's not supposed to be
but you know that there's no rules, am I a fool?

it's not that bad with the tribe on your side
if you don't have it then here's some of mine
Track Name: It's Real And It's The End
hear me for the first time
and take you far again
follow through the water
it's real and it's the end
it's real and it's the end
feed me for the last time
sweet nothing is waiting there
play the final notes to your song and die
Track Name: Good Review
you don't like the way I sing my songs
does that mean we can't get along?
I guess that I'm the same as you
I heard your songs I hate them too

I thought that we were fine
until we had some time

I see right through the rain parade
of yourself a fool you've made
you don't sound just like you are
have you traveled just as far?

we were feeling fine
until we had some time
Track Name: Keep Them Down
pass us around
do as you want
our bodies our yours
just leave our minds free
to be
you can't stop us from thinking
you don't want to know our dreams
they'll leave you confused
vision has no chains
to keep them down
to keep them down
Track Name: Hot Pursuit
see your life begin to spiral out of control
seek your feathers, they'll kill your mind to teach your soul
they're gonna catch you
they're gonna find you
no matter what you do
no matter what you do
they're gonna get you
they're gonna get you
Track Name: Magic Bears
hey where are you going?
we're all around you
is it a distraction?
we're glad we found you
in the forest we can build something

magic bears are our friends
magic bears will crush your bodies
don't think twice they'll crush your bodies
magic bears are our friends

on their backs we ride with them
in the springtime
in the daytime
where are we living?
we're living with them
when are we dreaming?
we're always dreaming

magic bears are our friends
magic bears will crush your bodies
don't think twice they'll crush your bodies
magic bears are our friends
Track Name: Ladder Face
if you find yourself feeling bad
just take it all in, everything's O.K.
you know you really don't have to feel that bad
immerse yourself in the rhythm of today
when overcome in the dark it gets brighter
with knowledge the brain becomes wiser
climb your ladder
breathe behind the matter
climb your ladder
Track Name: Sun King & The Man
we remember for so long what we have put there
when you spoke the words were wrong, you're right
but what do you care?

they heard you stop dead when you were walking
they heard you lying when you were talking
I can't understand

we remember for so long what we have put there
when you spoke the words were wrong, you're right
but what do you care?
the sun king and the man could have awoke by now

they heard you stop dead when you were walking
they heard you lying when you were talking
I can't understand
Track Name: Indian Winter
when the winter comes she'll be all mine
she can shake the trees empty of leaves
hiding in the tipi its feathers she brings me
walking on the ground I'm leaving town

indian winter

I can see the tracks running in the snow
smoke from the hills no I won't go
we ride horses underneath the pink sky
we float like spirits when we die

indian winter
Track Name: The Most Impressive
my name is written everywhere
the most impressive thing of all
and when the eyes begin to stare
our feet stop working and we fall
there's things that keep us far apart
and you know we're not the same
there is no light without the dark
the meaning's different in your brain
my feet are growing weary now
and my eyes becoming dim
my mind starts to wonder how
and these strange feelings do begin
to creep inside of my being
I need this doubt to survive
because when faced with it I win
relief rush over and I thrive
this is the great light
when we end the night
we can take you to the fields
golden green makes it heal
