about

Begun in 2017 and immediately derailed by the near death of drummer and vocalist, Chris Schoenecker, "Way Down" is a collaborative effort spanning a two year period which began in uncertainty and chaos. While Chris progressed through recovery he failed to miss a single show, and when the time came he returned to the studio with the band and ripped off a keeper track with the boys right from the get go. The songs span years of lyric writing by Singer/songwriter John Mazzariello and the musicianship of lead guitarist Colin McMahon in finding structure and melodies that cemented the foundations of each song. The four part harmonies, highlighted by bassist Alex Kinstetter's unique vocal range, and Schoeneckers infectious drumming pull everything together into what can only be described as "candy for your ears".

Track Name: Joyride
Well I have found myself in a sea of antiquity
Climbing up I see there's no angels waiting there for me
I've been lost so long in a cloud of what was meant to be
I can barely dream at all

I have heard that it's alright when things are not ok
These voices whispering in my ears won't phase me
I'll keep crawling back to your arms

So let's make love like a couple of '90s kids
In the back of a Cadillac at the end of a dead end road on a Saturday night

Now I've been thinkin' on some words that my father said to me
If you want to win the hearts and minds you've got to shoot to kill
And play for keeps
But everytime I think I'm flying I'm just learning how to fall again,
This gravity won't let me go

And all these tragedies we're creating
And all these crimes that we're obfuscating
Keep us blind to the fact that all our time is slipping away

So let's make love like a couple of '90s kids
In the back of a Cadillac at the end of a dead end road on a Saturday night
And let's get drunk like a couple of teenage kids in the back of a Cadillac
At the end of a dead end road on a Saturday night
Track Name: INFIN-ITY-W-AR
You came to me last night
You told me all about your heroes and how they died
Each and every one was gone
Before their time was done
You sat next to me and cried

You've been waiting for your song, for so long
But don't you know that every day
I sing to you

I'm so sorry for everything that life can do
It seemed like such a different world when we had you
And I'm amazed at how much you have grown
You have made this house my home, our home

And I can't give you everything I thought I could
There's so much I can't control, I thought i could

You made me all I am
And I will love you even after I am gone
It's written in the stars

That I love you
Track Name: She Knows(Mary Fitzpatrick)
I know she's got the letters that I wrote so long ago
Buried there inside a dresser
And covered up by all her clothes
From when we believed that we were young
And we both knew it was alright to be alone

And she knows I've been waiting my whole life for times like this
She says "Nothing lasts forever"
And seals it with a kiss

I know she knows my secrets
And I know she'll cut my ties
She knows it's ok to stay at home on a Friday night
She knows it's ok for boys to cry
Like when we believed that we were young
And we both knew it was alright to be alone

And she knows she's been waiting her whole life for times like these
She says "Nothing lasts forever"
And seals it with a kiss

She loves me, yes she does, I know she loves, yes she does
She loves me, yes she does, well I know she loves me
Yes she does...
Track Name: Song 64
Well I woke in the night to the angels singing
About the wickedness of man and all his sinning
Well the darkness became dawn and the trees ll were gone
And the hammers of the righteous all were ringing

Singing "It can't always rain on a Sunday, No it can't always rain on a Sunday, well the Lord yes he said that he could raise us from the dead, but it can't always rain on a Sunday"

Well the sky turned red like a stained glass window
And the clouds crept over all the cities
And the valleys became lakes, and the lakes became seas
And the Philistines were screaming all around me

Singing "It can't always rain on a Sunday, No it can't always rain on a Sunday, well the Lord yes he said that he could raise us from the dead, but it can't always rain on a Sunday"
Track Name: John Jordan(I want a DJ)
It's the art of war, it's the science of cigarettes
It's a crazy hunger that lets you work yourself to death
Its a burning home, a supermassive blackhole,
It's radiation in the water

I find cold comfort in a tall boy
Drinking at the same bars every night
Well they'll tell you there's no darkness here
While they're turning out the lights

I want a DJ to tell me its ok
I just want a little clarity on the airwaves
I want a DJ to tell me its ok

Its the art of peace, a stark collection of vignettes,
It's a crazy hunger that let's you starve your friends to death
Its a burning tomb, the last rites before you leave the room
I'm a 21st century sucker, with a pension

But I've been dreaming of the end times,
Four men on horses and a pillar of fire
I'll pack my suitcase for the sunshine
With things I'm trying to forget

I want a DJ to tell me its ok
I just want a little clarity on the airwaves
I want a DJ to tell me its ok
Track Name: Charlie Hustle
Well they said he was a man of the highest order
But if you listen to the little birds
It ain't your soul that he wants
Well he couldn't stay away from the women and the cocaine
He spent a year to get it right but now he's back again

Tonight's the night that Charlie Hustle might

When the van rolled over he was nothing but a ragdoll
He kicked the window out and he swam to the shore
He tried to light a cigarette but all his shit was wet
He knew he had it coming, but not just yet

Tonight's the night that Charlie Hustle might

Well they said he was a man of the highest cloth
But if you listen to the little birds
It ain't your soul that he wants
Well he couldn't stay away from the women and the cocaine
He spent a year to get it right but now he's back again

Tonight's the night, that Charlie Hustle might
Track Name: Bring Your Love
Baby bring your love like a burning sun
Let your light shine down like the break of day
Every heart gets broken, but broken hearts are free
Honey let your love shine, and bring it all to me

Baby I've been cold and I've been shaking all night
Looking out my window at the city lights
Had my share of losing, had my share of fame,
But when I look up at that sky I want to see you again,

Baby bring your love like a burning sun
Let your light shine down like the break of day
Every heart gets broken, but broken hearts are free
Honey let your love shine, and bring it all to me

Baby I don't care that we're growing old
Its not a race to the finish, it's all about the road
Trying to raise these kids, trying to pay my way
And when I'm dead and gone I hope somebody has something nice to say

Baby bring your love like a burning sun
Let your light shine down like the break of day
Every heart gets broken, but broken hearts are free
Honey let your love shine, and bring it all to me

Your silhouette wakes me in the morning
And the silence washes over me like a diver in the ocean
And I float in a most peculiar way
And I've got nothing left to say.
Track Name: Way Down Blues
Its been a couple of days, since my baby left
She took all I had, she even took my dog
She got high... she got low

It's been a couple weeks since my baby left
She left me all the bills, but she didn't forget my checks
She got high... she got low

Well its been a couple of years since my baby left
She took all I had, this letter's all I got left
She got high... she got low
