about

Voices and space, respecting the silences, the pauses between the notes -- try not to overplay and in all things respect the integrity of inspiration rising -- not simple for studio work. In this CD, the Brothers chased down that incandescent mix of intention and surprise. Don’t bring the tune down too early and don’t over-nudgey it.
Science and not-science. The physics of soul when it is more than rhythm and voice; it is the depth of reach interior. All art is interior.

The Brothers write without over-scripting, each tune is allowed to rise in its own way. They hold the raw material until the charts are drawn, then take it to the rest of the group in Jacob Detering’s studio and the music finds its groove.

She never would admit that science won because science has not won. Yet. All our reach is for integration, the interpenetration of heart and head when head leads one day the next day heart and God forbid we should have science without heart, space without compassion, technology without soul. Our skins are stuffed with souls, our souls overflowing our skins.
Hey – we’re living here and let’s at least make sense through our hands. Listen to these acoustics and their caution in not stepping on each other.

Track Name: Where You Going Now?
Where You Going Now?
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

She could look down at her baby,
And know it was just alright.
When he cried the sound was her favorite song,
Drifting through the night.

In the morning she rose early,
And painted on a smile.
Kissed his cheek and told him,
She’d be back after awhile.

(Chorus):
Where you going, where you going now?
Where you going now?

Joe was never right for her,
And neither was raging John.
To them the kid was an after thought,
You’d hear her carrying on and on.

And Friday nights were the hardest,
When you just want to let it go.
The creaking house is silent,
While everyone’s at the show.

Chorus

Notebooks filled with poems,
On the bookshelf near the chair.
Full of tales and revelations,
Yet she claimed she never cared.

So head first in she dove,
Man she came out swingin’.
Left a trail awash with beauty,
Left the bells all ringin’ and singin’.

Chorus
Track Name: I See Her
I See Her
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff


Upstairs there’s a room, hey I see her.
Soft white light behind her head, hey I see her.
Hey hey I see her, hey hey I see her.

She speaks in tones too low to hear, hey I see her.
Rests her hand upon my skin, hey I see her.
Hey Hey I see her, hey hey I see her

In the bed where she laid before, I see her.
Hey Hey Hey.

She smirks the way she always did, hey I see her.
Keeps to herself the things she’s hid, hey I see her.
Hey Hey I see her, hey hey I see her.

In the streets I used to know, hey I see her.
On a porch past the iron gate, hey I see her.
Hey Hey I see her, hey hey I see her.

Hey Hey Hey
Track Name: Under The Tree
Under The Tree
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

Sometimes I feel so defined, by what my ancestors said.
Voices in the air, still hovering overhead.
Telling me wrong from right, and not always so polite.
They just wanna pick a fight.
But I’d rather be sleeping.

Cause I’ve read grand opinions, seen them posted on the wall.
Written through clenched teeth, laced with fury and vitriol.
Never taking into account, that words can be tantamount,
To hearts being ripped out.
And bodies bleeding.

Can’t we just find our own quiet place under the tree.

Two men stood side by side, smiling cordially.
Proclaiming they’re still friends, although they disagree.
But behind closed doors they wince, and neither is convinced.
That intentions aren’t balanced,
With something hiding.

Freedom rides right at you, like trail ways to a mob.
Although they may look the part, some ain’t up to the job.
But locked arms stand and sing, when the clang of metal rings.
Young women can grow wings.
And take off flying.

Can’t we just find our own quiet place under the tree.
Can’t we just find our own quiet place under the tree.
Track Name: She Loves to Dance
She Loves To Dance
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

Intro:


She loves to dance, with her arms outspread.

Always one more song, spinning round her head.

Wind upon her face, smile in her eye.

Something to behold, like watching stars collide.

Chorus:

She loves to dance (2x)

She loves to dance

Starring up in awe, I’m there at her command.
With her simple words, and whims I can’t withstand.
The soundtrack seems to freeze, oak trees loom high above.
The world melts away, there’s nothing left but love.

Chorus:

She loves to dance (2x)

She loves to dance (2x)

Bass/Piano solo over verse chord progression

So much left undone, the dishes pile up.
Car could use a wash, things should be picked up.
But she doesn’t care, and does her lofty prance.
So I take her hand, cause she loves to dance.

Chorus:

She loves to dance (2x)

She loves to dance (2x)
End:

She loves to dance
Track Name: Picking Up Sticks
Picking Up Sticks
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

Verse:
Rumbling in the East, shaking the ground.
Word on the street’s been going around.
Words only spoken in dark of the night,
Now rain like hail in the broad daylight.

Chorus:

Walking in crowds, picking up sticks.
Take the old men, give ‘em the deep six.

Verse:
Lady had enough, can’t stay home no more.
Charging like a bull through the front door.
Boys in the alley looking both ways twice.
Being born in the fire’s not a personal vice.

Chorus

Solo

Verse:
Didn’t spread it around, what did you expect.
You could roll it forever and stay unchecked.
Like’s the devil he knows, but he don’t know a thing.
Stands in the tower, dreaming he’s the king.

Chorus

Verse:
Big things can happen at the drop of a hat.
Sometimes it’s over, and that is that.
When the new day dawns better grab your shades.
Lock your back door, sharpen your blades.

Chorus
Track Name: 35 Summers
35 Summers
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

Laying down on her eternal bed.
Small satin pillow, underneath her head.
Some crazy old woman rambling on and on.
Talking ‘bout the kids the ones that don’t belong.
All they can do is just put out their hands.
Can’t work in the summer and rock in the winter.
Must be something in her coffee,
That’s really, getting to her.

Met his fate, like he planned.
Down by the river, the cop’s in command.
And his brother wants to be, just like him.
But his skin is, way too thin.
All he can do is just put out his hand.
Can’t work in the summer and rock in the winter.
Gonna have to, find his own thing.
If he wants it, to get any better.

At the counter, he doles out advise.
Tries to keep folks from the, ultimate price.
But he knows there’s only, so much he can do.
Still he wants to, help get them through.
All they can do is just put out their hands.
Can’t work in the summer and rock in the winter.
One day he’ll have to, close up shop.
And cut off the endless banter.
Track Name: Where Light Betrays the Night
Where Light Betrays The Night
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

Intro: G Riff


We often recall these memories.

Of crystal days that ran so slow.

And you talked of that time overseas.

Chorus:

Let’s go back to where light betrays the night.

Let’s go back to where light betrays the night.

Let’s go back to, let’s go back.

Let’s go back to where light betrays the night.

Cause I love you, yes I love you, I love you.

Interlude:

The sun poured down on our heads.
In grass covered fields where we’d sit.
Together we all would break bread.

Chorus

Interlude

We walked past the churches and homes.
As trees hung lazy over the streets.
Some lady sold you a black cat bone.

Chorus
Track Name: Keep it Dark
Keep It Dark
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

Intro:

Verse:

Even when the sun is shinning, keep it dark.
Even when you get that kiss, keep it dark.
When the wind is at your back, keep it dark.
When you think you’re rollin’ deep, keep it dark.

Chorus:

Abundance overflows, maybe you’ve left a mark.

Always, always, keep it dark.

Verse:
Each moment a new child is born, keep it dark.
All the people are so warm, keep it dark.
She ran along the village roads, keep it dark.
Stopped by just to say hello, keep it dark.

Chorus:
Sometimes a straight line, sometimes an arc.
Always, always, keep it dark.

Solo: Bass

Verse:
He fell down from the branches, keep it dark.
The night nurse tended to his wounds, keep it dark.
Can’t expect not to come down, keep it dark.
Can’t be fixed each time around, keep it dark.

Chorus:
Walk back from the edge, and find the spark.
Always, always, keep it dark.
Track Name: I Could Stay Here For The Rest of My Life
I Could Stay Here for the Rest of My Life
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

Intro:

What’s the jukebox sayin’?

What’s it playin’?

Been sitting by you,

For what seems like all night.

There’s a warm breeze blowin’,

All around you it’s glowin’.

And I could stay here for the rest of my life.

Bridge:

I know I can carry that heavy load.

All the best new things feel old.

And something sure feels alright,

Cause I could stay here for the rest of my life.

Intro

Now I’m spinning with you,
And the sky is gold and blue.
It’s casting light,
Saturating inside.
And I’d walk a mile with you,
Just to watch the world renew.
And I could stay here for the rest of my life.

Bridge (sub last chord w/ Bm (G#m),
Tag w/ normal end (Bm/E/A) (orC#m/F#/B)

Intro
Track Name: It's All Relative
It’s All Relative
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

Intro:

It’s all relative, in the sky.
It’s all relative, so we try.
Try to live, try to fly.
Try to give, but we lie.

(B Part):

And we’re goin’, round and round.

Over blowin’, about the sound.

Vamp

In a way, you were right.
It’s all relative, so we fight.
We’re already dead, oh we fear.
Strike a match, now it’s clear.

B Part:
Out in the field, where you waltz and sing.
You always say, the darndest things.

Vamp:

It’s all relative, in the sky.
It’s all relative, so we try.
Try to live, try to fly.
Try to give, but we lie.

End:
Track Name: The Waltz of No Time
The Waltz of No Time
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff


Intro: vamp

Verse:

She said she’s as easy going as it gets,

At the table on their balcony, full of coffee and cigarettes.

“It ain’t bragging if it’s true” is what my father told me,
She looked up from her book and said I quite agree.

Chorus:

And you know, the ways of my mind, so sway with me,

To this waltz of no time.

Bridge:

And when it rains, we won’t feel a thing

And you’ll know that you’re mine

In this waltz of no time.

Intro

Verse:
We walked on cobblestone, along ancient rivers.
I was a vegetarian, before we ate dinner.

You outlawed cruel thoughts, so I shifted my view.
What once was so hard, now so easy with you.

Chorus

Bridge
Track Name: Science Won
Science Won
Words and Music by Brothers Lazaroff

Intro: C (4 bars)

Verse:

Ashes were flying in the air.
New Saints were everywhere.
And they tried to keep us sleeping,
As they trekked on through the night.
Oh the wild wonders in sight.


New life in the zone.
No more connections blown.
And the tea’s just right with honey,
At that café on the square.
The rarest kind of love was once found there.

Solo

Cats dart by in a flash.
Should have kept it all in cash.
And she always liked how Mexico,
Rolled right off her tongue.
She never would admit that science won.

End: tag w/ vocal, tag instrumental end
