about

In early 2012, Rich Scramaglia took a leap of faith- he wrote a psychedelic classic rock concept album. He assembled a storied crew of Bay Area rockers to realize his vision: Mike Drake (Oranger, Hot Fog) played guitar, keys, and produced. Matt Harris (Posies, Roky Erickson) played drums, tambourine, and produced. Allan Moon (Imperils, Carlos, Overwhelming Colorfast) played bass. Tom Galbraith (Mensclub, Blank Stares) played drums. Nick Dumitriu (Turn Me On Dead Man, BIke Revenge Tuesday) played guitar and recorded the sounds. And of course, Rich Scramaglia's (Carlos, Sunless Day) golden voice and classic songwriting are the focal point of this exceptional record.

Track Name: Speak To Me
You are, can’t you see, You are beautiful, so speak to me Geronimo rides again, free as the wind But a slave to the moon The wind fire poets spit sparks into the breeze When you burned it to the ground I was fiddling ‘round Singing Burning, burning flames are dancing Like wild red women in dresses of yellow And you are Speak to me You are beautiful The wind fire poets spit sparks into the breeze Fire the forest, burn up the street Oh, captain pay the priest Pay the fee Oh, captain say your peace Keep the peace
Track Name: Laugh At All My Jokes
Sing out loud if you want to be heard Sing it clearly if you want to be understood You might be broke, still she laughs at all your jokes It’s such a fine time to feel the sunshine So sing out loud Hadn’t been the type of guy to waste a wish on Hadn’t been the type of guy to pin a dream on Saw her smiling now she’s in love with him Heard her laughing now she’s in love with him It's funny how things change Doesn’t life get strange When you look into the eye of a new day Saw her laughing look into the eye of a new day Saw her smiling look into the eye of a new day Laughing crying look into the eye of a new day Love will find you look into the eye of a new day Laughing crying look into the eye of a new day
Track Name: Sucker Punch
It’s a dirty bit of bold stroke joking A dirty kiss muddy on the mouth When she strut across the room Oh, what the hell, now you know your Stock is heading south Went a couple rounds of knock down round house Hit you like pillow filled with rocks Then a funny bit of bait-and-switch Then another lap around the block Close your eyes, got your head in the clouds When you woke up just a face in the crowd Hard to win when you take it on the chin Sucker punch zzzleep the dream off Hadn’t seen it coming laughed for two Now you been sucker punch punked Hadn’t seen it, closed your eyes Now you're just a sucker punch drunk Close your eyes, close those sad moon eyes Knock some sense into a living lie Shake it off, with a nervous cough Sucker punch zzzleep the dream off Knocked out cold and when you woke up All was good and good for all Dreaming of this pretty world Wake up and it's gone, yeah it's gone Zzzleep that dream off now
Track Name: Company Man
I walk inside I got two pockets full of copper Standing in the line at the company store Work up a smile and she smiles so you blow her a kiss Put your money down You're a company man Who would blame you No one would ever blame you Now you’re working hard for your Matter-of-fact baby Got to own up, got to do what you can Double plus sorry and a pocketful of posies Got to double down you're a company man Few would doubt it, few would doubt it Who would ever doubt it Plum rum kisses and the neighbors getting nosy A pickle and a plum but you do what you can Double plus sorry and Now you got to mosey Up on your feet you’re a company man
Track Name: Zephyra The Great
She's crying she's dying he’s trying 'Cause something inside of her’s broken Lights flashing, cars crashing The world stops for Zephyra the Great has spoken He looks into her pretty eyes Is it all a waste of time Blue movies flashing bright light Playing in his mind Star spangled, love strangled From each angle she sees that It’s already broken She's crying and he's trying He's crying 'cause Zephyra the Great has spoken She looking at him bleary eyed Got him working overtime Hey, boy it's not to wonder why! Should you throw in the towel But you took a vow
Talk talking and walk walking And more talk talking shock shocking Zephyra the Great has spoken
Track Name: Divided
Divided but we're in it together United we're really one and the same Two-sided—there's a crack in the shell United in ruin, divided we fell Oh, we stood to together Oh, we were one and the same Misguided but we just couldn't tell United in ruin, divided we fell Trapped in the loneliness The sanctimonious, divided So many songs we know are true I'd rather fall then stand with you And when we went to town The Roman thumbs went down On my life, all my life Oh, we stood to together Oh, we were really the same Divided we were under some spell United in ruin, divided we fell
Track Name: Black Flowers
Oh, where has everybody gone? I've heard that song The sorry song we sing When everything is going wrong I've heard that song Cry in your sleep Sway and weep like the willow Cry me to sleep All those tears on my pillow
Track Name: Dimmer And Dimmer
Let us never forget, let us never forget Only too often does the glimmer grow dimmer and dimmer The far off glimmer grows dimmer and dimmer
How do you like that, how do you like that Only too often does the glimmer grow dimmer and dimmer The far off glimmer grows dimmer and dimmer
Hope and desire are lit by a fire Only too often does the glimmer grow dimmer and dimmer The far off glimmer grows dimmer and dimmer
Such a wondrous man, such a wondrous man Only too often does the glimmer grow dimmer and dimmer The far off glimmer grows dimmer and dimmer Let us never forget, let us never forget Only too often does the glimmer grow dimmer and dimmer The far off glimmer grows dimmer and dimmer Then dimmer and dimmer
Track Name: Poisoned Wine
I look at you, well, you look at me I've seen that smile before It's rotten to the core So fly fire moon Burn with the stars The proud and beautiful...

What you looking at friend You think I've lost my mind 'Cause I'm falling down and tears are flying What you thinking now friend I must be deaf and dumb 'Cause I'm trying to have a little bit of fun I'drunk The poisoned wine to ease my weary mind To try to stop my world from dying Every day is closer to a time I can't remember How I got here and that's a sign Close my eyes to rest my tired mind Blame it on the poisoned wine I grew up in a box Hiding from the rain If they were selling it well I was buying What you thinkin now friend It's really such shame A shame to see a grown man crying I'drunk The poisoned wine to ease my weary mind To try to stop my world from flying I don't see what I can't hear I stand deaf and dumb In this cold dark world It's a give and take, a take and give I'm a super slug in this cold dark world Blame it on the poisoned wine
Track Name: Black Flowers (Slight Return)
Oh, where oh where Has the honey bee gone? Oh, where oh where could it be? The flowers they're dying And spring disappears I walk down the road And what do I see A forest of folly before me And acres of dusty gray fields Oh, where oh where cold the honey bee be Climbed top a mountain and what do I see I see black flowers Black flowers as far as I can see
Track Name: Sad Moon Eyes
Sister sunshine time to pay your debt A daughter of fortune gets to place her bet Luck run out then what do you know Won front row tickets to a sold out show A lipstick smile melting in the summer sun Be that as it may she got the sad moon eyes Citizen soldier had his fun in the sun It's the Fourth of July and the war's been won Soldier boy he kisses sunshine girl He's top of the heap, well he's on top of the world He got a 2 ton pickup and he's anything but afraid Be that as it may he got the sad moon eyes
Big man business earned his place in the sun A soldier of fortune a real son of a gun When it all adds up well he's earned his pay It's all morning glories in their bright array Class clown, country clubbing Happy as the day is long Be that as it may he got the sad moon eyes
