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

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

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...

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"

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

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

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.

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

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".
