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

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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?

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

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

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.
