This is the last song I will bug you all with from our album the self titled "The Speakeasy Sway". I had great fun working on these songs and am proud of them. Scott, Brian, John...all deserve awards for making this happen.

Lyrics
Listen here my brother cane
you know you cannot give
bad blood away
I know that this
is your dying shame
Ill grant you this one wish
whats in a name

at night when I close my eyes
Ive seen their faces thousand times
a thousand times
mother should have been there for ya
Shes never really been there for ya
to make it right
What the world took from you
Its not a wonder that you came unglued
I would too
Family doesnt mean forever
but brothers got to stick together
to make it through

nobody could understand
who wasnt raised by that hand
who swore theyed see it throught
that promise of unspoken truth

we walk alone
a million miles alone
our entire lives alone

when theres nothing left
no anger to hide
when youre out breath
look to your side
Im there by your side

at night when I close my eyes
Ive seen their faces thousand times
a thousand times
mother should have been there for ya
Shes never really been there for ya
to make it right
What the world took from you
Its not a wonder that you came unglued
I would too
Family doesnt mean forever
but brothers got to stick together
to make it through

nobody could understand
who wasnt raised by that hand
who swore theyed see it throught
that promise of unspoken truth

we walk alone
a million miles alone
our entire lives alone
for millions miles alone

This seems to be more straightforward 90's alt than the other stuff i've listened to from the album. I like it a lot. It's emotionally direct and I like the brothers concept. I really dig that 'nobody could understand' bit - very cool break. Singing is tops as always.

We all played it straight to emphasise the emotion. I don't know if the song could have gone any other way.

Pro track. Awesome vocals. Like the stripped down intro, and then the band kicking in. Wow what a vocal performance! Got me nodding to the chorus. This is really jumping out of the headphones. Great work, man.

Pro sounding track highlighted by some passionate vocals. I like the way the energy ramps up in the chorus. The slinky bass and Scott's confident drumming hold down the low end. Wall-of-sound guitars sound cool.

No holding back
You guys are one solid driving unit. Vocals are edgy and angry with authenticity and a raw side that makes listening closely a command and not an option. Backup from the lads is first rate and production matches the quality of all other endeavours. It takes a while after listening to come down off this one.

Great song guys.
