Story

Had to write one about America's other favorite past time - makin' love all night long... slow, deliberate, passionate sex until the sun comes up, just like it was your last night on earth.... I'll just leave it at that.

 

Lyrics

Like a deal gone bad

You’d think I might’ve had

Better luck until now

But after our night out

You turned me inside out

And somehow upside down

 

We can love tonight like there’s no tomorrow

Yesterday’s a memory that tonight shouldn’t borrow

 

Drifting into the light

Your spirit moves in the night

You know you’re bringing me in

And I can’t speak for you

But I think you dig me too

Feeling good to the end

 

We can love tonight like there’s no tomorrow

Leave it all behind, forget the pain and the sorrow

Just wish the world away, blindly pushing on

Making love tonight like there’s no tomorrow

 

Like a deal gone bad

You’d think I might’ve had

Better luck until now

But after our night out

You turned me inside out

And somehow upside down

 

We can love tonight like there’s no tomorrow

Leave it all behind, forget the pain and the sorrow

Wish the world away, blindly pushing on

Making love tonight like there’s no tomorrow

No tomorrow

No tomorrow

No tomorrow…

Story

Well, this song SOUNDS like it should be about pure SEX. Love the drive and the groove that Mikee laid down. But the guitar made me feel as though a tale was being told of Love gone BAD, real bad. I think we have ALL been this guy at one time or another. Bummer.

 

Lyrics

You’re in a graceful state alone in your chair

Too wrapped in Hendrix now to know that I’m there

You speak without a sound in three different tongues

And after 40 days, surprised that I’m numb

 

The lies of our love sleep between us at night

Tools of infection only add to the fight

Six weeks, or nine, I’d say you’ve done all your time

Enjoy the luxury pretending I’m blind

 

It’s all that I know

 

All your life you’re taught to hide from the cold

When icy air moves in your heart hits the road

The silent threats and allegations ensue

Houdini’s talent couldn’t save him from you

 

Our trust and our faith

Have made their escape

Insane with the pain

And the shame is all that I know

Story

I really dreaded writing the follow up ballad to "Castles in the Sand" from the 'TRUTH' CD... But the writing came at a time when I hit a new level in life - New wife, pregnant with my son - Now if you can't find something sweet to sing about at a time like that... This one just wrote itself until about 3:45 in the morning, and it says exactly what I was feeling then AND now.

 

Lyrics

It’s a silent Sunday morning

Sunlight on your face

The world goes on around us

While you dream in sleeping grace

Sometimes I feel so lucky

To be the man to hold the key

To a lifetime of tomorrows

And our unknown destiny

 

I don’t pretend to know it all

But I know this much is true

I’m looking at forever in your eyes – I’ll be standing next to you

 

In a venture to the moon and back,

I’d meet with Father Time

To treasure every second spent

Between your heart and mine

Making memories together

And sharing all your days

I’ll be the one to touch your face

And wipe your tears away

 

If the world falls down on you

I’ll be there to pull you through

Yes I can see forever in your eyes – and I’m standing next to you

 

And if I get to heaven first

I’ll be smiling down on you

I will be forever in your eyes

I promised you forever by your side

I will live forever in your eyes – standing next to you

 

I’ll be standing next to you

Story

This is one of those tunes that was written with an evil grin... Don't we all have that "one that got away" and you just gotta smirk when you think of the crazy shit you used to do or say to each other... and you sometimes wonder where you would be or WHO you would be if you would have ended up together as adults?

 

Lyrics

You were with me

Together we’d run all night long

Brave and Free

The radio would play our song

Bare feet

Hearts pounding wild with every beat

Back seat

Dad’s Chevy with the windows steamed

 

The best nights of my life I’ve spent with you

And I’m hoping that you think about me too

 

Sweet sweat

In innocence we’d play along       

Lover’s pledge

To one another we belonged

Class clown

Had the answers down for everything

I’m too proud

I was tough as nails and right as rain

 

The best nights of my life I’ve spent with you

I’d go back today to see your face and dream away

 

Paint me a picture of dreams gone by

 

Fools pride

You knew how to put me in my place

Well I lied, you cried, we tried, but it died

I couldn’t keep those tears from off your face

 

The best nights of my life I’ve spent with you

I’d go back today to touch your face and dream away

 

Paint me a picture of dreams gone by

I’d give anything for those days gone by

 

Yesterday

The summer dreams came back to me

Separately

You and I would live our histories!

 

The best nights of my life I’ve spent with you

And I’d die a million times to share your space and dream with you

 

Won’t you paint me a picture of dreams gone by?

I’d give anything for those days gone by, those days gone by

Whoah, Oooh, dreams gone by

Paint me a picture!

Dreams gone by

Story

Absolutely the MOST heartfelt, ass kickin', balls out dedication to the Warriors of this country - past, present AND future - to our Military Men and Women - We thank you for our freedoms as Americans... It took on a much more meaningful tone when we lost our brother Dustin J. Feldhaus in the line of duty on March 29th, 2011.  RIP buddy.

 

 

 

 

Lyrics

I understand

Life and death in the eye of the storm

Here where I stand

I knock you back to the day you were born

It’s easy to see

Your tactics are no mystery

I’ll see you in Hell

Before I let you get the best of me

 

I am the man

The one sent to take you down

Our war is at hand

Taste the dirt with your face in the ground

You don’t value peace

But you’ll get a piece of me

I’ll see you in Hell

Before I let you get the best of me

 

You can’t win this game of Risk

Imminent Apocalypse

One on One just you and me

Meet your Maker gracefully

 

Two worlds collide

And yours will retreat to the sea

With my troops by my side

Your demise, my sweet victory

Now you’ve messed with the bull

And your ass gets the horns from beneath

I’ll meet you in Hell

But you’ll never get the best of me

 

You can’t win this game of Risk

Imminent Apocalypse

One on One just you and me

Meet your Maker gracefully

Whew, thats a lot to say, isn't it? I got carried away, and I just couldn't cut anything. Just couldn't. It's dedicated to our lovely wives. Our pockets are all sewn up, ladies! Love you.

 

 

Lyrics

I remember as an eight-year-old

Pockets full of marbles

Many more than they would hold

After chasing girls and lizards home

The sun setting behind me

As I sang the theme from Twilight Zone

But my spinning world stood still that day

My pockets void of treasures

Like a forty-niner losing precious gold

 

You can waste your tears on emptiness

Or get up and start again

Thank the heavens for experience

Better off for having them

 

I’ve had memories come and go

Hieroglyphics on my soul

And holes in my pockets

Just like I did back then

I hit the concrete now and then

But I get up and I get by

 

The years and miles and life flew by

Me and High School buddies

Hanging out behind the bleachers getting high

The three of us would talk all night

Passing borrowed liquor

Making promises of loyalty for life

But Graduation came and went

Kindred souls went separate ways

Not ever to come face to face again

 

Stay lost in teenage innocence

Or get up and start again

Thank the heavens for experience

Better off for knowing them

 

We were young and we were free

Now they’ve slipped away from me

Through holes in my pockets

Broken bonds from way back when

Crack the concrete now and then

But I get up and I get by

 

You can hang your fears on bitterness

‘Til it brings you to the end

Or live life with new experience

Strong enough to let ‘em in…. Again

 

Life is changing every day

Showing me a different way

Holes in my pockets

Just like I did back then

I hit the concrete now and then

But I get up and I get by

 

That April day she gave me love

The sun sets now before us

Life is open as the sky above

Now once again my pockets full

Rich with long lost treasures

And lessons from that eight year old!

 

Cast away the loneliness

‘Cause I’m never letting go

Trading marbles for our memories

Never slipping through the holes

 

I Live and Learn with you each day

And I won’t let you get away

Through holes in my pockets

You and I until the end

We’ll hit the concrete now and then

But we’ll get up and we’ll get by….

Living life for you each day

It was meant to be that way

No holes in my pockets

Forever my best friend

Tough as concrete to the end

We’ll get up, We’ll get by!

Story

I watch the setlist at every show for this one. By FAR, my favorite song to sing from DEL. Dave just gave us such a cool guitar sound to work with, and Lance and Mike nail the backing vox. Fun groove, too.

 

Lyrics

She’s been in here almost every night

I throw her cards and dirty jokes until she smiles

First impressions leave me wanting more

Stakes are rising but my heart just hit the floor

 

There’s not much I don’t understand

And I’m not a patient man

But she’ll double down in a lovers rage

And she’s past the bluffing stage…

She’s such a mystery – yes, but I got the Ace

This heart is history – Yeah…

 

Lady luck has been her latest flame

She’s on a winning streak with fashion for the game

Hit or stand tonight, I’ll move with grace

She hates to want me but she knows I hold the ace

 

She breaks the house and takes my heart

It’s tearing me apart

I know she’ll take a hit on Seventeen

With me in all my dreams… Oh, yeah…

She’s such a mystery – because I’m holding the Ace

This heart is history – Yeah! 

 

She breaks the house and takes my heart

It’s tearing me apart

I know she’ll take a hit on Seventeen

She’s the Queen of all my dreams – Oh, yeah…

She’s such a mystery – such style and grace

This heart is history – because I’m holding the Ace

She’s such a mystery – such a mystery, such a mystery

This heart is history – Yeah!

You naughty girl, you! This tune just spewed out of us one day in rehearsal. Every time we play it live, there is a wall of sound from the crowd and that just feels DAMN good! One of the most powerful TERASHAIN tunes to sing. We chose to make this a FREE downloadable single available to everyone.

Lyrics

I’ve been searching for clues from you

It seems forever and a day

Changes tell me something’s going down

Like I’m getting in the way

Moving shadows by the bed that we share

Tell me you’re not there alone

Chasing your lies from room to room

And you’re not even home

 

She’s keeping secrets, it’s killing me

This isn’t how it was meant to be

Without her love, I don’t know where I’d be

 

You say I’m just being paranoid

But I can’t help what I feel

Sometimes the lines of love grow weak

Creating doubt in what is real

You’re all I’ve known for so long now

I think I’d know if you’re in love

Sooner or later it’ll come to me

I’ll find the strength to rise above

 

She’s keeping secrets, it’s killing me

This isn’t how it was meant to be

Without her love, I don’t know where I’d be

So hard for me to understand

This circus life she’s living in

A piece of her goes everywhere I am

 

Her sweet deceit is haunting me

Through eyes of steel she sees me bleed

Story

This is a song we really wish we weren't inspired to do.  In the Summer of 2005, we lost a dear friend, and the original drummer for Terashain to a heart attack.  Over time, many of the tears have turned to grins, but not a day goes by that I don't think of this dude!  What a Guy!  We were honored to have original Terashain guitarist, and Mike's brother Jon come in and do the solo on the track.  It can't be easy to nail a guitar solo for a song written about your late brother. Jon Anderson is the consumate professional, and a great friend.                  

We miss you Mike, and think of you always.

 

 

Lyrics

I’ve had lots of time these last few days

Just to sit and think

Of how you’ve touched my life so many ways

And what you’ve meant to me

Now the door you have before you

Only you can go through

Ooooh, I wish you well

 

Some things I think that you should know

That I never got to say

Your friendship meant the world to me

And I long for one more day

Of making memories and music

Right now we all could use it

You know, this hurts like hell

 

And I look to the sky and I close my eyes

I can see that one door closes and another opens wide

It’s the circle we all start in

Our spirits taking part in

A fearless dance of time

 

It seems time is hard to find these days

And you’ll miss it if you blink

I send a message to the ones I love

And I don’t have to stop and think

 

And I look to the sky and I wonder why

It has to be that one door closes and another opens wide

My son will come to know you

Through the stories I hold onto

You’ll always bring a smile

 

And I look to the sky and I close my eyes

I can see that one door closes and another opens wide

It’s the circle we all start in

Our spirits taking part in

A fearless dance of time

 

I’ve had lots of time these last few days

Just to sit and think…

 

Wish you well

You’ll always bring a smile

I can see that one door closes…

And another opens wide, I wonder why?

Story

Lance and I wrote this back in the mid-90's and never used it. He and I actually recorded it a few years back, but not with the band. Dave heard it, liked it, and he and Mikee made it MUCH better, so it made the DEL cut.

 

 

Lyrics

They say that youth is when the soul runs wild

So much to see out in this world

Inside us all a restless child

An empty page awaits the word

 

You can run if you believe how far

Just a dream to pull you in

Challenge all you are

Open up from deep within

 

Only you can find your Hearts Desire

No one else knows what it means

Start with sparks and build a fire

Touching others with your heat

 

It seems we all move way too fast

Milestones of life become a haze

Pushing forward from the past

Take the time to feel your way

 

You know time won’t wait for you

And it won’t slow down

But you never knew

It would come from deep within

 

Only you can make your Hearts Desire

No one else knows what it means

Start with sparks and build the fire

Touching others with your heat

Only you can make your Hearts Desire

Dare to live among your dreams

Spirit helps you to inspire

It’s closer than it seems

 

Remaining life, it waits in the dark

What’s done is already done

An unknown star will make its mark

It lights the path to run

 

Only you can find your Hearts Desire

No one else knows what it means

Start with sparks and build the fire

Touching others with your heat

Only you can make your Hearts Desire

Dare to live among your dreams

Spirit helps you to inspire

It’s closer than it seems

 

Your Hearts Desire

Only you… Whoa!

Anything you want is in your reach

Baby you can have it if you please

It’s in your reach

Visualize yourself among your dreams

Dave doing what he does. We just HAD to incorporate his love for flamenco guitar into a rock song, and man, did he ever rise to the occaision. Close your eyes and listen with headphones and try to hear the story told on the strings. Good shit.

Such a departure for us, and I have to credit Hassie for that. I really enjoy the flavor of this one, and it's a kick to sing, too.

 

Lyrics

Free me from life without your love, my Senorita

Forgive me, for in your arms is where I bleed

Receiving each and every kiss is meant a gift

Believing you don’t return the way I feel

 

Incognito

Incognito

 

Tempt me with eyes as dark as nights of Spain

Revealing your skin, your touch, your secret heart

 

Incognito

Your love is locked inside your heart

Incognito

 

Incognito

Eyes as dark as nights of Spain

Incognito

Story

Every generation feels the burden of blame from the one before. Why don't we just end that damn cycle right now. Oh, but then I wouldn't have been pissed off enought to have written this. HA!

 

Lyrics

Don’t cross the line

Don’t waste my time

Don’t tell me all the shit in the world is mine

Not mine

All black and blue

They tortured you

Go find another place for a new tattoo

That’s fine

 

Revolution, revelation rhyme

Preparation, separation kind

 

Got your mental doom

For the baby boom

Paid by the hour in a padded room

Killing time

And a penny saved

Is a penny earned

To give it to the man with cash to burn

Is a crime

 

Liberation, celebration sign

Self-fixation, generation mine

 

Can’t believe it’s killing me

Blistered hands and aching feet

Hefty price for the air I breathe

I said it before and I’ll say it again

I can’t be blamed for every sin

This generation will defend

 

Got a fire inside

That satisfies

The stain you leave when you burn my pride each time

I’ll tell it true

You blaming fools

If you bite the hand that feeds you

Then you’ll lose

 

Restoration, meditation fine

Blessed nation, generation mine

 

Can’t believe it’s killing me

Blistered hands and aching feet

Hefty price for the air I breathe

I said it before and I’ll say it again

I can’t be blamed for every sin

This generation will defend

 

Revolution

Revelation

Blessed Nation

Generation Mine!
