about

Recorded live on the alter of an 102 year-old Sanctuary in San Francisco. Every Sunday the pews are pushed up and Bibles are put away and the guitars and microphones are brought out for a few hours and some very tasteful music is played.

lyrics

silent city


wave goodbye, to yesterday,
my mind is still, like the night

silent city, comes to wake,
as i part, and take my leave

all these years, they go by,
like a train, into the night

forgotten tears, remember you,
at your most, lifted state

lets take a ride, away from here, no one will know
the air blows by, with windows open wide, before sunrise
the skyline fades, into a morning haze, we'll take that ride
...one more time

and the morning breaks, to a silent city,
i break away, into a silent dream

this place can take, a piece of me,
each breath i take, is lost in here

it's time to go, we've said too much,
your eyes are tired, but i'm wide awake

i'm passing cars, changing lanes,
i'm looking back, in my rearview

lets take that ride, away from here, to relive
those memories, the wind has blown, across the sky
so many times, we'll remember, and always will...
...one more time

now i leave you, cold and gray
but i'll return, old and frail

Peace of Mind:

If I leave this city behind, will i find some peace of mind?
If I leave it all behind, what will i, really find?
