about

Farther On has been a long time coming indeed! Health issues have slowed our work, so we've decided to post 'in-progress' versions of the tunes as we move forward. We hope you enjoy the new material!

The complete line up of 10 songs should be wrapped-up this summer.

Track Name: The Fringe
It’s Sunday morning
At the edge of the world
Daylight breaking
Oh, my life unfurls
To mild indifference
Just a stone in the road

Have to find a way
Out of this desolate drama
I’m doomed to replay

It circles round me
Just out of my reach
This aching desire
Oh, too subtle for speech
It’s all mine to gather
Oh, it’s mine alone

I stand, waiting at the fringe
Looking for any connection
To this place I’m in
I’m tired of waiting at the fringe
Track Name: Peace Be With You Now
Hymns of memory,
Riding on the wind – a song
And all these poisoned wells we find
Are echoes of the sin
So long ago I walked an empty shore
Hiding all the fires in my hand
But every passing memory drifts,
Sinking in the sand
So call the souls to reveille
The trumpet ringing on and on
Like a choir sings eternally
While the battle rages on and on

Change, trying to arrange
Emotion so sincere
A whisper to my fear
“Peace be with you now”

Shades of destiny
Woven from the tales we weave
And every song is history
Broken under waves of need

We call the souls to reveille
Our trumpets ringing on and on
We’re a choir born majestically
While our battle rages on and on

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Gone
Can it be?
I’m falling under the spell,
Lost dreams of summer
When the wind wove tales of wonder
And the waves beat down like thunder

I’m lost in this feeling
It’s wonderful, so wonderful
Feel it now
Hope lies in season
Leaves me head over, head over and so gone

To reflect on lasting meaning
Wrapped within this lovely feeling
With the joy of laughter teeming
Sends my heart leaping with freedom

I’m lost in this feeling
It’s wonderful, so wonderful
Feel it now
Hope lies in the season
Leaves me head over, head over and so gone

Got this feeling, it’s oh so good
Send it over, send it over
To the heavens it’s understood
Send it over, send it over
Got this feeling, it’s oh so good
Send it over, send it over
To the heavens it’s understood
Send it over, send it over
Track Name: Hope and Change
Oh, shadows
Gather round the windows of change
Golden gallows
To rise above the avenues of rain

Face the night
In a dim reflected light
Of a dream shoulders cannot bear
All around us might
In a glove of velvet night
Can you hear the bells that freedom made?
Can you feel hope and change?

Oh, dreamers
Contrive that hope can lie within the plan
True believers
Now look for peace in any form they can

Face the night
In a dim reflected light
Of a dream shoulders cannot bear
All around us might
In a glove of velvet night
Can you hear the bells that freedom made?
Can you feel hope and change?

You and me – hope and change
Track Name: Get By
Pain adoration, all around you
Pain is the window to the soul
Try to avoid complication
But nobody rides the river whole
I can’t help you, we’re just getting by

Shot down by the hosts of desolation
Shot down by the enemies of joy
Walk down this road of deprivation
No more clever lies to employ

I can’t help you, we’re just getting by
I don’t know if I should fear the reasons why
I can’t feel it, no room inside
Want to be there, but I’m just getting by

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Storm
High above the tower facing east
O’er the cliffs that cage the winter feast
Ragged clouds above, spray below
Icy rain to try the willing soul

Raise the light
Fire bright
All along the border on the sea
This time to lose
Have to choose
Read the signs
The storm is coming soon

Ravens gather on the tower wall
Heralds of the shadow and the fall
Yet the light above the tower lingers on
Holds the night at bay until the dawn

Raise the light
Fire bright
All along the border on the sea
This time to lose
Have to choose
Look inside
The storm is coming through

Storm, test the fire within you
Light reveals for all to see

High above the tower facing east
Light within the storm for all to see
