Silence 05:18
Lyrics © Jeff Patch Silence paves the way to another bad day Sirens howl their way down your motorways And the tyrants shake their heads looking your way You say it’s too soon Another day, the drugged, the dreary unfeeling Wind their way in the corridors where paint is peeling They no longer smell the decay, or see the mouldy ceilings It’s too soon It’s too soon It’s too soon Until it’s too late Injured, the lesions don’t heal they stay open Stumbling, the walking wounded march on In the direction taken by those who surrender They said it’s too soon Can you wake up, can you make the connection Between what you see, what you feel and the oppression And your silence, the tacit compliant acceptance It’s too soon It’s too soon It’s too soon Until it’s too late BREAK I want to cry out and shout the words unexpected I need to lash out before being bound and rejected I have to break out from my own incarceration Before it’s too late Stand down, afraid to draw attention With the mask on, the one that hides dejection Another year gone and left no negative impression It’s too late It’s too late It’s too late Unless we do it soon

The Storm 01:27
© 2014 Jeff Patch Were you ready for the storm? Prepared when forewarned Got your wood and supplies Put the fire on To try to stay warm Dark time of the year Ice storm’s got us here Trees took down the lines Too much to fix in good time BREAK with More cowbell So keep the fire going You’re frozen to the bone Lonely dark and cold So gather ‘round the stove And try to keep warm

No Change 06:12
© Jeff Patch August 5, 2019 How do you feel at the end of the day? When you know there’s been no change Where did the ice go, why are the children, in a cage? In the light, you’re in the dark, there’s still pain No Change, No Change, No Change The machine, feeds on the clean, feeds on the lame Points to the drag queen, and blames the video game A call to arms, to lead the charge, and show the way To light the torch, to burn the cross, to spread the hate No Change, No Change, No Change Break, Instrumental Bridge How did you feel, when you heard the news today, and read the posts, read the thoughts and prayers? 22 in El Paso, nine dead in Dayton Did it bring you down, did you cry in vain? Outro No Change, No Change, No Change

Chaos 02:29
© Jeff Patch January 3 2019 I’ve seen my share of hard times and I’ve had friends that came undone and messed up, stayed when they shoulda run I know I was the lucky one Climb on, take a ride, try to navigate and circumstance does a dance it’s all confusion Stay inside while outside a butterfly flaps its wings No control ‘cause overall it’s all delusion Chaos Sing it now, sing it loud Chaos You got no control, not then, not now Chaos You got the hubris man if you think you know Chaos It’s a nasty thing and it won’t let go

Miracle Man 03:47
© 2018 Jeff Patch He’s a rock and roll man In a rock and roll band Had blood clots in the brain In a few months he was back playing Miracle Man, hug your baby tonight Miracle Man gonna be alright He lives in the country upriver And he don’t mind the banjo pickers Woke up to nurses at his bed Talkin’ ‘bout how he shoulda been dead Miracle Man, hug your baby tonight Miracle Man gonna be alright BREAK How he’s out spreadin’ the word And playin’ guitar with The Unheard He’s a rock and roll man He plays in a rock and roll band Miracle Man, hug your baby tonight Miracle Man gonna be alright He’s a Miracle Man He’s a Miracle Man Miracle Man Miracle Man Miracle Man Ooooh

No One Cried 00:55
© Jeff Patch 2019 Walking on by You let it slide Even avert your eyes Don’t even try ‘Cause inside it died And no one cried again Stay the course Looking ahead Keep on walking by Go home Then go to your bed And no one cried again No one tried again And no one cried for them

Dagda 04:22
© Jeff Patch 2019 From the otherworld found within you The dance of the Dagda makes you move The one-eyed raven holds the clue To the march of the ancients and the road you choose The three-legged bandit and the broken-legged mother Lived apart; never knew one another But to follow their old trails together Will lead us to the place we can call forever Below the ruin He guides you through it And heals and seals the wounds in you Forget the cries, forgive the lies Then move with the ancient that was dormant in you A lonely pilgrim travels on his own But he misses every clue that is to be found Blinded by conformity and the arrogance of youth He will always be searching for but will never find truth From the otherworld found within you The dance of the Dagda makes you move The one-eyed raven holds the clue To the march of the ancients and the road Below the ruin He guides you through it And heals and seals the wounds in you Forget the cries, forgive the lies Then move with the ancient that was dormant in you

© Jeff Patch 2014 In a time of quiet reflection I know she’s perfect in her imperfection Seeming to need some kind of intervention Ahhh no I’ll let it flow ’Til we’re home again Strong but bending, got resilience Sometimes dim, but often brilliant Forgiving when it makes no sense I’ll try and let it ride ’Til we’re home again Like the ocean and all its’ mystery and all the storms that crash upon me No one can ever understand perfectly I’ll be steady for when I’m ready to go home again BREAK Through lonely times and with companions When you’re lost and when you’re found again Think of the one, think of the millions Many know they want to go See home again

OK Boomer 01:45
© Jeff Patch 2020 Get off your phone and find your own home Show that you respect me and stop takin’ those stupid selfies OK Boomer, chill out and let me be How can you always moan? You put holes in the ozone Your shopping online put my stores in decline Boomer, you messed up the air and you threatened polar bears Yes we can differ in how we see the world today But we can still hang out; we are special in our own way OK Boomer
