OUT OF TODAY (Rick Reil)
©1994 The Grip Weeds

Doesn't matter what I do
when I'm hanging on the line
Nothing I could give to you
that I could say is mine 

I'm not sure I'm really here
I conjure up what I would say
And fool you so it does appear
like it all has gone my way 

There is a shadow of a doubt that passes through
You've got to open up and let it get to you 

Hours that have brought me here
close together as we play
But suddenly I disappear
and leave you on display 

I'm waiting for the night to come
so I can get out of today
Can you find some other one
who understands this way 

There is a shadow of a doubt that passes through
You've got to open up and let it get to you 

SOLO 

There is a shadow of a doubt that passes through
You've got to open up and let it get to you
Turn back the clock and see what occupies your mind
Lay down the lock that ever loses what you find

SALAD DAYS (Kurt Reil)
©1994 The Grip Weeds

Coming down to the last time around
but it's you who keeps changing my mind
lost and found at the speed of sound
thought I'd never make it in time 

Salad Days don't rain on my parade
Let me feel the sunshine of your shade 

Draw me in to your room within
with the guise of an unthreatening love
help me steal from beneath the wheel
and to learn that to give is enough 

Salad Days don't rain on my parade
Let me feel the sunshine of your shade 

The sky has opened up to rain
I suggest you do the same 

SOLO 

Letting go in the afterglow
and the tears in your eyes make me smile
what's inside is what you can't hide
'cause it's been there all the while 

Salad Days don't rain on my parade
Let me feel the sunshine of your shade

CLOSE DESCENDING LOVE (Rick Reil)
© 1994 The Grip Weeds

Iíve been seeming far from being
Close to finding out
Never knowing I keep going
ĎTill Iím crying out 

Iím gonna try till you let me know
Out of my mind but I will not go 

Close descending close descending love
Close descending through the rain you touch 

Your affliction an addiction
Turns you into stone
If youíre living your heart keeps giving
But you stand alone 

And so you find that the light is low
Out of your mind but you will not go 

Close descending close descending love
Close descending through the rain you touch 

Iíll rest myself against your life and let the answer flow
and for a time I can let it go to where it leads
then I know

REALIZE/REALISE (Rick Reil)
©1994 The Grip Weeds

As the icy window melts away 
and tides go down into the day
Lay so low and bow your head
You can feel the thoughts surround you 
so with innocence they bring you back
To a new empathy 

I have never found the one who would unbound 
the chains that hold me down
I have learned to look within
To another world where I don't have
to cross a bridge to lose myself
Being in it I can realize 

Chorus:
So how can you tell me that the love I sense is just a dream
When the fear of loneliness is in your eyes
To say would be the end
A moment to comprehend
That there is more before you realize 

No I won't be taken in and confiscated
by what you believe
though it hurts to stand alone
But to make illusions melt away
and walk behind the door and say
I won't stop until I find my own 

Chorus 

It's too late for me to come around
and see with bound and tethered eyes
To ignore it when I can hear a sound
that is deeper than you realize 

Verse 1 

Chorus

SOMEONE (Rick Reil)
©1994 The Grip Weeds

I take the flame from her blazing eyes
Put out the heat that cries in the night
Where I am waiting
Freeing up a stage inside my mind 

And she sends her life giving light
To pull me in a wrestle the sight
That I am taking
Being convinced thereís no mistaking
In Her embrace 

Because itís Someone to make me leave it
Someone so I believe it
Someone to feel the sound 

I me to reach the hand thatís held out
Into the breach the water runs down
And rushes over
All the barricades behind my face 

When I search for words in my mind
She draws her lips together with mine
And my attention
Turns all at once thereís no mention
Of meaningless rhyme 

How does she know the landscape inside
All of the winds that blow on the wild
Amazing island
Leading me in waves that turn to diamonds
Playing so soundly in her eyes

EMBRACES (Kurt Reil)
© 1994 The Grip Weeds

a flower tree a silver hook
a pantomime another book
appearing as what anything she pleased 

i took a drink i filled the brook
with honey from a silver hook 
that promised to relieve me for a while 

and long before embraces would begin
i realized the mess that i was in 

lives of people living by
who are they and who am i
but they dont seem to notice where theyve been

only i am standing here
paralyzed with every fear 
wonder how i ever got this far 

and long before embraces would begin
i realized the mess that i was in 

and i dont want though i could try
im told that there's an open sky
but who has got the guts to reach the air 

with all my hopes immersed in sleep
where nothings good but the livings cheap
and i can count the sheep that pass me by 

and long before embraces would begin
i realized the mess that i was in 

and long before embraces would begin
i realized the mess that i was in

ALWAYS COME ( M. Hargrave)
© 1994 The Grip Weeds

We were alive, takin' a drive
worried only bout the waves at hand
and getting to our favorite spots.
It was the best, never a rest
and in the night rehearse the band
all in the name of staying wild. 

That was way before the law came down
making it illegal in this town.
No longer a place where we could always come 

We headed out, doing without
all the designs of wealth and waste;
doing the best with what we had.
It would be tough, finding enough
of a stretch of beach they hadn't touched
and if we did, they'd be there soon. 

Feel 'em getting closer every day
somehow there's got to be another way
to find a place where we can always come. 

(Solos) (Chorus Progression) 

It was so weird - when it appeared
to find a place right where we did;
they would never think to look out here.
And if you ask - to drink from the flask
of the cool fine drink we found,
pick it up and pass it around. 

I remember days before the pain
watching all the beaches getting chained.
Now we have a place where we can always come 

(Break) 

(Out)

DON'T BELONG (Kurt Reil)

OPENING RIFF 2X 

There are people all around me
doing things I'd never do\
But I can't help but feel far apart from what is real
Don't belong out here I know
I don't belong 

RIFF 2X 

In a world where no one seems to care
feel like I have fallen through
Out of step and out of line
in this space but not in time
I won't be caught up here 'cause I know
I don't belong 

RIFF 2X 

BRIDGE:
Tried to fit into
the regulations and the rules
but it is not what I want to do
not what I want to do
Don't belong out here with you
Why isn't it obvious to you
that I am not gonna follow through
I'm not gonna follow through 

There are people all around me
doing things I'd never do
But I can't help but feel far apart from what is real
Don't belong out here I know
I don't belong 

RIFF TO FADE

HAUNTED (M. Hargrave)
© 1994 The Grip Weeds

There's a black cloud over this house
Nothin left to do but get out
Save your hide cause the raven is markin' you down
There's a north wind through this place
Feel the vibes in a bad embrace
Run for cover when you see that your cake is all dough 

And it feels like a stake right through the heart
Never saw this finish from the start
The lies of the villain were so easy to see
There's a better place for you and me inside. 

See a shadow made of black and the white
Hear a wail in the dead of night
Gonna catch the trouble 'fore the day is done.
Feel the tick of the clock at one
And the crow of the cock at sun
See the light and you're thinking that you made it through 

But it crawls, like a snake right through the park
With a fire, known only as a spark
The eyes of the villan are so dark in the day
Wishing only for delirium your way.

BEFORE I CLOSE MY EYES (Rick Reil)
©1994 The Grip Weeds

When the voices from inside
swell together like the tide 
there is no place left that you can hide 

Pictures left of yesterday
gather for another play
tomorrow what is gone is here today 

Cause I don't know what's right or wrong
But I know I'm not here for long
Before I close my eyes I will be gone 

Images would be set free
to become reality
but there's a long hard road ahead of me 

As we go another mile
nothing left to do but smile
no matter what I do I'm like a child 

Cause I don't know what's right or wrong
But I know I'm not here for long
Before I close my eyes I will be gone 

Before I'm through
I will reach out to you
and bring to view
the ties that we renew 

Messages that we receive
some ignore and some deceive
and hide behind what they would make believe 

All that is would ever be
scenes repeating endlessly
that lock us up until we find the key 

Cause I don't know what's right or wrong
But I know I'm not here for long
Before I close my eyes I will be gone

WALKING IN THE CROWD (Rick Reil)
©1994 The Grip Weeds

Faces glancing all around vibrations in the air
tried to get someone to look but don't know how to stare 

'cause I feel so inconspicuous though I'm part of all of us
it's only that I'm walking in the crowd - in the crowd 

Feel the rhythm catch the sound touch her if you can
let yourself flow through the room because there is no plan 

But I don't know what it is that I am trying to accomplish
when I get into walking in the crowd - in the crowd 

BRIDGE:
what is it everyone's getting so worked up about? I don't 
think I want to stay 

SOLO 

Everybody seems so sure of what they're doing here maybe I 
am wrong to think that no one is sincere 

But I just can't seem to break the code instantly make myself known
and lose me when I'm walking in the crowd - in the crowd 
-in the crowd
