about

"What is home to you" is the bands first full length LP since they released their debut Union Glory 4 years ago. It is also the first record they made together as a band without use of an outside producer. While the record feels a bit darker than previous releases it still possess the glimmer of hope we all need to get through life. The songs pay homage to all the bands influences and styles that have had critics wondering where to classify them for years. Whittled down from approximately 15 tracks to the 8 presented, the band believes this is a collection of songs that tells a story and won't have you reaching for the skip button.

Track Name: Miles Away
Today's the day, you lay it on the line
Moved on from that stepping stone
Been used so many times
You woke up early with the sun
To get a jump on those who try to hold you down

And it's clear from here so many miles away
It's clear from here you could run against the grain

Today's the day, but who are they to say
Which way you're supposed to sway
One step ahead, taking two steps back
Their still holding now, they still hold you down

And it's clear from here so many miles away
It's clear from here you should run against the grain

Oh, there she goes again
Out there on her limb
There she goes again
For forgiveness on the wind

Today's the day, you start again
Deep breath, next step, begin again
It's all behind you now
Like the others on the line
They can't hold you now, no can't hold you down
Track Name: Oh Daddy
Oh Daddy, When you comin' home
Been out here on the line, trying to survive, baby

Oh Momma, when;s he comin' home
he's been out there on the line, helping us survive, baby

Oh Baby, I'm comin' home real soon
Been out here on the line, trying to survive, baby

Oh Daddy, when you comin' home
Been out here on the line, you know that i'm a liar, baby
Track Name: Don't Say
Don't say I didn't try
Hold your head up high, just like I hold mine
Don't say those words
Don't say goodbye
Don;t say I didn't try

I'm searching for something, I know I might never find
That piece of mind

I've been a fool, a fool for you
but your story just don't fly
Don't say I didn't try

I'm searching for something, I know I might never find
That piece of mind

Take those three words, Take 'em down to the fire
Throw 'em in and watch 'em burn
Don't say I didn't try

I'm searching for something, I know I might never find
That piece of mind

I've been a rich man, a poor man too
a beggar, a thief, a liar for you
Track Name: What is Home to You
I'm searchin for pieces from the bomb
trying to find a reason it went off at all

I'm running on empty, batteries low
I'm at the end of the rope, maybe it's time to go

Searching for exits, what's the plan
Making connections, with who I am
it keeps coming back to you, like it's your fault,
it keeps coming back to you, but this ain't your cross at all

I'm running on empty, batteries low
I'm at the end of the rope, maybe it's time to go

what is home to you
everything, nothing
Track Name: Easy to Love
They say a good man is a good man then you know
so I do my best to be a good man for you
if you see me smiling, know that it's all you
I could dance alone with just your picture in a crowded room

and i know I'm not easy to love
who said loving was easy, it's not easy

They say a good woman can be so hard to find
so I'm stopping to smell the roses my love
when your not with me, it breaks my heart
but i can feel you there across the distance when we're apart

and i know I'm not easy to love
who said loving was easy, it's not easy

They say a real love, can be so hard to find
so I say your name on every new night sky
cause if what they say is true
I chased a rainbow down and my pot of gold is you

and i know I'm not easy to love
who said loving was easy, it's not easy
Track Name: Lonely Alone
You're all alone, in a place you know so well
you call home, a place that welcomes you back
with open arms, a palce called
lonely

You were young, gave away your heart, reckless abandon
jumped from off on high with fear of scars
you end up lonely
All Alone, with a picture of that boy you used to know
the one that ran away with your heart in tow
left you lonely

You , you wear, all your loneliness, like a pretty dress in fall
the prettiest of all, the broken hearts

All alone, with that picture of that boy you used to know,
the one that ran away and then came back home
but your still lonely.


You , you wear, all your loneliness, like a pretty dress in fall
the prettiest of all, the broken hearts
Track Name: Whistle Blowin
There's a whistle that's been blowin'
in me
there's a whistle that's blowin', a little boy that's growing,
who depends on me

If you know the way, won't you help me tonight
won't you shine your light

There's a whistle that's blowin,
a piece of me still frozen,
would you like your biscuits with tea?

There's a whistle that's blowin,
but out there past the ocean
there's a place still callin' for me

If you know the way, won't you help me tonight
won't you shine your light
Track Name: Letter From the Frontline
Why did you fall, for me at all
when your so beautiful
Time passes slow, out here on the lonely road
with all these bones in tow, and there's those sticks and stones
all those I do's I don't
all those ideas I float, out here on the lonely road

Watch every sound, won;t you teach me that again
I guess I missed it the first go round
and it's catching me some how,
when I'm out here in a crowd, I feel far less exposed than now,
lying here with heart all out
keep it safe in your arms tonight
hold it close with all your might
until that sun does shine, and bring me back home again

When are you coming home
soon as I can my love,
as soon as this wars over
