about

This is the epic suite for the album (a tried and true format for the 1st three releases). This time I incorporated electronic loops, drum machines, real drums, acoustic and electric guitars along with the ubiquitous mellotron, electric piano and hammond organ, in a an odd-metered chaotic outing. Ranging from jazz to pastoral folk to fusion to traditional Prog, this track exemplifies what Rebel Wheel is and has remained a favourite of fans around the world.

lyrics

I have nothing to hide, gave it all to you.

Left with nothing inside, when it all was through.

Saw that look in your eyes that time you turned away

And the silence of night, is my own.

Feel the wind on your face, as the stars fall down.

Feel your body erase, as we leave the ground.

We have nothing to hide, as we tumble down.

Saw that look in your eyes was for me.

2nd,

Sometimes I think I can see through walls

Sometimes I think I can see it all

I fade away, it fades away, I fall away, it falls away

I need today, I need to say.

Conditions, demands, conditions, demands.

Demand and desire.

Sometimes I think I can sense you near,

Sometimes I think I can smell the fear.

I fade away, it fades away, I fall away, it falls away

I need today, I need to say.

Conditions, demands, conditions, demands.

Demand and desire.

3rd

Out on the streets, ten stories to go

Laughing like a king disguised.

A crowd gathers, a hat passes 'round.

No silent assembly in this silent town.

Keep on passing those open windows.

Life is serious, but art is fun.

Out on the street, ten stories below.

Laying like a clown disguised,

A crowd gathers, a sigh passes 'round.

A silent assembly on this sacred ground.

Keep on passing those open windows.

Life is serious, but art is fun.

about

The Rebel Wheel Ottawa, Ontario

Steeped in dark cinematic soundscapes and complex, turn-on-a-dime arrangements, The Rebel Wheel features a frenetic mix of rock aggression, complex compositions and unpredictable odd-meter vamps. Originally formed in 1991 as a fusion-based midi ensemble, the floating lineup has gradually focused on a modern, more performance-oriented, genre-blending Prog. ... more
