about

Soul Patch was born in the California Bay Area when guitarists Ryan McIntyre and Nick Peters got together to jam sometime in early 1996. They’ve been playing together ever since, and by 2000 the band’s core lineup had expanded to include drummer Jason Mendelson and bassist Scott Derringer, with whom Ryan has played in various bands since junior high school.

Soul Patch recorded their first album, Summers in Rangoon, in 2000 in a marathon five-day session at Toothless Monkey Studios in Ryan’s home in Portola Valley, CA and released the album in 2001.

Soul Patch’s second album, Sooner or Later, was released in early 2008 and represents six long years of writing, recording and mixing, and is a quantum leap forward for the band with respect to quality of songwriting, lyrics, performance and production.

Track Name: Lose My Mind (One More Time)
Lay me down, siren sound seduce and haunt me
Shattered ground, spun around won’t ever be free
I’ve forgotten many times, yet you always will remind
How I lost it all with you
I would die for yesterday, find another game to play
But instead I played the fool
Fallen down, run aground and now I’m

Wasted (out of time)
Faded (memory dies)
Will I find tomorrow’s gone?
Just like the days that came before
Waiting (things to change)
Praying (re-arrange)
Life come undone
Pieces on the floor


Lose my mind just one more time, madness sublime
Know I can’t rewind, I’m crazy now
Lose my mind just one more time, madness sublime
But I can’t rewind

Fallen down, run aground
And now I’m wasted,
And now I’m waiting


Silent sound, with you I’ve found I’ll get no warning
Look around, stand my ground, I’m slowly burning
What a deadly game we play, when we live for yesterday
But tomorrow’s only true
I fell prey to that one day, when I gave it all away
For an end that came too soon
Fallen down, run aground and now I’m

Wasted (out of time)
Faded (memory dies)
Will I find tomorrow’s gone?
Lost just like the days that came before

Waiting (things to change)
Praying (re-arrange)
Life come undone
Pieces on the floor

Lose my mind just one more time, madness sublime
Know I can’t rewind, I’m crazy now
Lose my mind just one more time, madness sublime
But I can’t rewind
Fallen down, run aground
And now I’m wasted
And now I’m waiting
I’m fallen down, run aground and now I’m

Wasted (out of time)
Faded (memory dies)
Will I find tomorrow’s gone?
Lost just like the days that came before
Waiting (things to change)
Praying (re-arrange)
Life come undone
Pieces on the floor

Lose my mind just one more time, madness sublime
Know I can’t rewind, I’m crazy now
Lose my mind just one more time, madness sublime
But I can’t rewind

I’m fallen down, run aground
And now I’m wasted,
Fallen down, I’m run around
And now I’m waiting
Fallen down, I’m run around
And now I’m jaded
jaded, faded, wasted
Track Name: Greyboy
I see the people on the city streets
Where they come from and where they go I don’t know
Underneath the sodium lights I might catch an eye or two
With a wink and a nod that says you’re one of us
Jostled by the ebb and flow I feel the pulse of the city at night
Lose myself in the swirls of many evenings,
winding up, winding down
As we head into the depths between the dusk and the dawn
I feel the pull of the places where the lights are low
and the shades are drawn

You’re us, we’re them, you’re one of my kind baby

Look around you, cause everyone you see,
sees the world in black and white
Left or right, right or wrong
But not me, I’m different, well I see the shades
Cause I’m a grey boy

Finding a moment of stillness in the midst of this crush of humanity
Reach my senses out to the edges of this city at night
Feel the rhythms of the bars and the rooms, listen closely
For some the day is over but for us the evening has just begun

You’re us, we’re them, you’re one of my kind baby

Listen around you, cause everyone you hear,
hears a world that’s black and white
Left or right, right or wrong
But not me, I’m different, I hear the shades
Cause I’m a grey boy
Track Name: Never Thought
Napkins litter the barroom floor,
my lyrics tossed I’m such a bore
Histories of lovers past, unenlightened,
take a blast with me

Crooked crags and worn out patches,
a bluesman’s heart is never whole
Butterflies leave the deepest scratches,
their flitting wings carve our souls

December, drown in drink again
Remember, resolutions end
Bartender, I need a pen
I never thought I’d write the blues again,
no I never thought I’d write the blues again

Bring me down with the snakeskin blues,
I can’t believe how much you shed
No matter how proud of your new skin,
the one you left me holding is dead
Breaking hearts when you’re young, its what you do
Don’t’ be too upset now, I did it too

December, drown in drink again
Remember, resolutions end
Bartender, I need a pen
I never thought I’d write the blues again,
no I never thought I’d write the blues again

Not the pretty things that break my heart,
just the ones that I can’t touch
Like when we say that looks don’t matter,
what we mean is, not much

Crooked crags and worn out patches,
a bluesman’s heart is never whole
Butterflies leave the deepest scratches,
their flitting wings carve our souls into patches

December, drown in drink again
Remember, resolutions end
Bartender, I need a pen
I never thought I’d write the blues again,
no I never thought I’d write the blues again,
No I never thought I’d sing the blues again,
I never thought I’d write the blues again
Track Name: Big Time
Got a new raw silk jacket, white Miami shoes
Thirteen body piercings, multiple tattoos,
You’re on a roll, you’re never gonna lose
Welcome to the big time

Got a thrivin’ start-up business, sales are out of sight
Boogie with the vampires, your office hours at night
Christmas sure was white
Welcome to the big time

And you’re ridin’ the roller coaster, thinkin’ you ain’t gonna fall
Did you ever stop to think that maybe it ain’t the big time at all?

And how are things with the king of kings, you’re lookin’ kind of beat
Forty days, forty nights, keepin’ on the heat
Help me fleece the sheep
Welcome to the big time

Baptisms, healings, and pow-wows with the Lord.
Come on come on Christian soldiers, come on bite my sword
Keeps ya from being bored
Welcome to the big time

And you’re ridin’ the holy roller coaster,
will angels catch you when you fall
Did you ever stop to think that
maybe this ain’t the big time at all?

You messed with Mr. C now you’re going for the ride
Sex and drugs and money, all you want now is to be alive
But you’re dead at twenty-five

Apocalyptic nightmare, the bottom’s droppin’ out
Caught you with a teenage creature, the preacher’s been found out
It’s Satan’s twist and shout
Welcome to the big time

And you’re ridin’ on a roller coaster, thinkin’ you ain’t gonna fall
Did you ever stop to think that maybe it ain’t the big time at all?
But you’re, you’re ridin’ the roller coaster, thinkin’ you ain’t gonna fall
Did you ever stop to think that maybe you ain’t the big time at all?
Track Name: Seed
Fall, we lose the day to the night, it’s a lesson
No not a cloud or no thunder I’m struck by lightening yeah
A wind as strong as the tide, lunar season

Feed the land with a chosen seed
Careful hand grow a mighty weed
Mother Earth give us what we need
Deadly appetite, got to find a way

Cold, the winter frost ever white, time of dying
Heard not a sound, felt no rumble, deep under avalanche
A snowflake might multiplied, suffocation

Feed the land with a chosen seed
Careful hand grow a mighty weed
Mother Earth give us what we need
Deadly appetite, got to find a way

Spring, reborn the trees green the light, life’s a blessing
A genesis, fields of color, perpetuate again
New generation take flight, celebration

Feed the land with a chosen seed
Careful hand grow a mighty weed
Mother Earth give us what we need
Deadly appetite, got to find a way

Burn, atomic blaze, summer sky, heat’s oppression
Deep amber flame, blackened timber, fire eats centuries
Sequoia seed germinate, conflagration

Feed the land with a chosen seed
Careful hand grow a mighty weed
Mother Earth give us what we need
Deadly appetite, got to find a way
Track Name: Burnin'
Waiting, wish the sun would die
Striving, I leave this life behind
Burning, feel the beat of drums
Nameless, just like everyone

Acid burns through my veins, can’t believe what I have seen
Never feeling more sane

Bone white sand, to the horizon
Rocks black, lost innocence
Bone white sand, to the horizon
Iinnocence, can’t ever go back

Fire, from the temple’s eye
Water, from a passerby
Naked, the scorching sun
Boundless, desert and I are one

Acid burns through my veins, can’t believe what I have seen
Never feeling more sane

Bone white sand, to the horizon
Rocks black, lost innocence
Bone white sand, to the horizon, innocence,
Can’t ever go back
Track Name: Sooner or Later
Finger the storm, worship the bitter wind, hey
Some people lust the shadows,
others dress their dreams in misty moon-gown
But, I only sleep as the moments chant by
in the sad, sad beauty of summer

Bang a drum, carve the silence
Some people live for crashes, others seeking to be tame
But I, I ain’t gonna cry no more lord, for I know I’m not to blame
And I, I ain’t gonna cry no more lord,
got this bottle for to ease my pain

Sooner or later, time is gonna get you mama, sooner or later time

Sooner or later time is gonna get you, sooner or later time
Track Name: Muffin Man
Rolled up to the club, it was half past ten
I had my baby on arm, they wouldn’t let me in
So I said brother let me come inside
I’m gonna show ‘em how its done, we gonna let it ride, yeah

Mountain of a man at the door said white boy
Why don’t ya go on home?
This joint’s too funky for you son, you best to leave it alone
So I said

Do you know, do you know, do you do you?
Do you know, do you know, do you do you?
Do you know the muffin man?

On the other side of the velvet ropes
my lady purrs she wants to move
Grab our drinks and cruise through the crowd
Now we’re ridin’ the pulse of the groove yeah

Stepped onto the dance floor,
the rhythm was simply out of sight
Soul Patch was funkin’ the place up,
had everybody feelin’ right

Movin’ my hips to the music now
showin’ how I keep you satisfied
All the ladies turned their eyes to me
and just then one up and cried out, hiya

Do you know, do you know, do you do you?
Do you know, do you know, do you do you?
Do you know the muffin man?
Track Name: Crazy
Sometimes I like to get naked, and dance out in the rain
And times I feel like the ostrich,
can’t bury my head deep enough in the sand

Try try try all my life to find balance
The world a bit crazy to me
Try try try all my life to find balance
Keepin’ myself just crazy enough to stay sane
And I go, do doot, da do doot

And when I finally found the wisdom to know ignorance is bliss
Now I’m not saying we all should be stupid
There’s enough lights out as it is
Try try try all our lives to find balance
The world a bit crazy
We try try try all our lives to find balance
Keepin’ ourselves just crazy enough to stay sane
And we go, do doot, da do doot
Crazy
Track Name: Gremlin
Way back, in ’97, two minutes late I was cruisin’ in my Gremlin
First saw you stumbling out of Marty’s Mystery Machine
Doc Martin Boots, sundress, I think you hair was green

Well its 4:22 and I know just what to do
Put down my guitar girl, I will make you twirl

Been tiltin’ at your windmills, just like Don Quixote
But I’m a simple man, I simply want your booty
Girl I’ve got to have you, you’re my Dulcinea
Move over Sancho, and make room for the playa

Now it’s 4:23 and babe you look good to me
Seduce you with my knowledge of Spanish novelists

The boys all try to catch you, while you flit like a butterfly
Until you alight on me girl, why I will make sigh
So bring your girlfriends, baby, lets all get a deep groove on
I play my C on your G-string lady,
getting down with you straight ‘til dawn

Well its 4:24 and we’re rolling on the floor
The music is feeling right, we could dance all night

Yo baby, what you gonna do?
With these weak-ass punks, guitar pickin fools?
You need a good man, one with the rhythm as well as the rhymes
Let me play your skins and you’ll want to be mine

So its four against five in my syncopated time
Hang with my beats and groove I will make you move
