about

A radical shift in style and direction, this record is the result of Alan Slimak’s return to to the band on drums and a more refined and immediate approach to songwriting. The music is loud, but delicate, and each song is an entire world of its own. From the catchy opener, “Feel the Same” to the epic closer, “Into the Night,” it is clear that this collection of songs is unlike anything the band has ever recorded.

The drums were recorded by Mark Reiter of the Daycare Swindlers at a warehouse in Northern Virginia. Everything else was recorded by RCR at their own private studio. Mark Reiter also mastered the record. The artwork was created by Gregor Koerting of SPECTERY.

Track Name: Feel The Same
VERSE 1
hey love
you're the one i'm thinkin of
you so unafraid
gonna set the world on fire between us

hey now
i know what let's talk it out
you just don't understand
i been waiting all night long for this and

CHORUS
for the rest of my days i swear i'll
never want for the blood that we share
in a way i'm afraid that you will
feel the same

and i say..
hey baby yeah
you'll know my name
and i know what you're gonna say

VERSE 2
our time
is a wastin valentine
let's take it all the way
gonna show you how I feel just now and

reasons
come and go but feelings
never feel the same
and somethin always gets in my way

BREAKDOWN
we talked a while just on the phone
wait for the time to say i'm alone
your voice an echo in mind
god give me strength to take what's mine
and i will take my time
Track Name: Can't Let You Go
VERSE 1
Dear god you wasted my time
Will I never know?
On my own
Are you in mind?
When I close my eyes she is all I see
Will you make her mine if I say I believe?

CHORUS
No matter how I try
I can't let you go
I will never make it alone
My innocence is gone
And I have lost control
All I ever wanted to know
Was she ever really in love?

VERSE 2
So much I keep hid inside
Until I cannot breathe
All I know
She means everything
And for the 100th time I will make you see
And for the 1000th time we will make believe
Track Name: (Kept Alive By A) Rock And Roll Machine
VERSE 1
I may be a world away
But I remember everything
A kiss in the parking lot
It took all the strength I've got
I can't take another day now
The pain won't go away
And I have got to say

CHORUS
She's my fantasy
Everything to me
Kept alive by a rock and roll machine
I'm on bended knee
I can not believe
Still alive in a rock and roll machine
And I hide my eyes

VERSE 2
When I'm on my back I see
Take all the time I need
A kiss underneath my skin
The place where we begin
Only you can do what you do
Moving just the way that you do
And I can only say

BREAKDOWN
Now I can hardly
Get what you need
I know that there's another way
When there's nothing to it
But to do it
We're gonna find it someday
Track Name: Suffer
VERSE 1
when you gave to me a secret to keep
i never felt so loved
but what does it mean when secrecy
is all we know

CHORUS
I see nothing and no one
i feel only what I want
nobody wants us to suffer
why do you do this to yourself

VERSE 2
a broken belief the last of its kind
we are what's left behind
are we what we seem or just half asleep
i closed my eyes

BREAKDOWN
easily i push you aside
every time that i feel like i change my mind
i believe you're the enemy
the only one i despise
this is only an in between world they say
but i do not believe what i cannot see
every now and then i ask my self
why must i always be right
Track Name: My Testimony
VERSE 1
For 40 days and 40 nights
I have wandered through the desert for you
whatever you want me to do

It's in my eyes, the way I feel
I could never keep the truth from you
You can see right through

BRIDGE
I waited for so long now
Don't tell me what I cannot do
So much to prove

CHORUS
This is my testimony of all I see
You cannot take it from me but I believe
What say, what I know changes me
I will not ever go back but I now know
I'll never be alone

VERSE 2
Innocence is where you hide
All the pain that you don't want me to see
But I could never believe
Track Name: All My Life
VERSE 1
One more night and I'll be home
One last time before I'm gone
Will you even know my face?
Or have I become the one that you replaced?

CHORUS 1
And all I found
When I lie awake at night
From the pain of a broken life
I can hear my future calling baby
Can you hear it too?

VERSE 2
The only place that I have known
And the only bed I call my own
Will I see you again?
And all I need is forgiveness for my sin

BREAKDOWN
All my life I've
Never felt like it was really mine

VERSE 3
One more night another road
And another town I do not know

CHORUS 3
When we're holding each other tight
And we're safe from the world outside
I can hear my future calling baby
Can you hear it too?
Track Name: Just Another Broken Heart
VERSE 1
Foolish little girl you won't be saved
Feeling like I never felt this way
All the way to the bottom of the sea
I believe God will take away all of my pain

BRIDGE
Now all my enemies have been forgiven
Will I finally find what I've waited for?

CHORUS
I'm gonna make you mine
I'm gonna mess you up
I'm gonna take you down
I'm gonna show you love

VERSE 2
Waiting by the telephone for you
Easily I could find somebody new
Secrecy I will take it to my grave
Sadness that will never ever go away

VERSE 3
Lying in the cradle of your arms
Mystery just another broken heart
Dying what happens when I close my eyes?
I'm flying underneath the darkest of the skies
Track Name: Now Forever
VERSE 1
Is it enough for me to say
I never felt that way
You can meet my only need
Lie to me so I believe
The secrets that we keep
The truth is never what it seems

CHORUS
Come on baby don't be shy
I won't hurt you I will treat you so kind
If you never tell me why
Girl believe me I will fall to pieces
Back together
I've been waiting
Now forever

VERSE 2
We get rough when we play
It never goes my way
I give up so easily
When I face all my fears
I will keep you near
You're strong as I could never be
Track Name: Saturday Night Angel
VERSE 1
My Saturday night angel
Your bleeding heart will never mend
No matter what you do to it
Do you remember the falling stars when
Every wish we made came true
And honesty could never lose

CHORUS
In between you and me
Emptiness is all we see
Will you wonder what became of me?
And I believe all I need
Is somebody just like me
Who will share with me my misery

VERSE 2
The tiniest of secrets
A promise whispered in your ear
A single word to ease your fear
I'm gonna make my own religion
I want a god without a plan
We're victims of your circumstance
Track Name: Into The Night
VERSE 1
Can you see what I see
The colors dancing in my eyes
Lying flat on my back
I can almost touch the starry sky
Do I have what I need
or will I be searching my whole life
Finally I believe
In the virtues of a sacrifice

CHORUS
Dying for your love
Do you ever think of me?
Blood is everything
Lies are not enough
To show you what cannot be see
Was it all a dream?
Easily we fall into the night

VERSE 2
Faith won't keep me alive
Yeah the angels I heard whispering
I'm faking when I cry
Yeah a thousand cuts won't make bleed
Track Name: Feel The Same (Acoustic)
VERSE 1
