Track 4 of Preclusion I.


SAILOR: They pushed me out here
Amongst the waves by their inaction
I am the fuel, I am the fire
The only vessel chasing my desires

Before I left I thought I’d find some hidden blemishes
And so I forged a string of bells
Reminding me of why and where and when and how I got here
That one was you – I “thank” you

When all the hate I’ve felt for me is used up
I’ll know this backwash is because of you

Thank god I’ve got my memory bells

Thank god I know I came from a town where all the lame broke ground
Took up residence in whiskey coated residue, afraid of letting go
Letting go of our betrothed Youths
We forgot our plans
Until in came a Man
Spouting what we were afraid to hear
We took up oars and threw away our limbolian beers

It was my hands that sealed my fate enlisting for the War
How much can I blame on me when his winds of change blew down my door?

Thank god I’ve got my memory bells

When all the hate I’ve felt for me is used up
I’ll know this backwash is because of him
If I were to take a bullet for my cause
I’ll know who to give a “favor” back to
Myself, him or all of you

PATCH is a progressive indie rock band based out of the Twin Cities area. The music sounds like a lovechild wrought from a tryst between Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age and darker Arcade Fire. All of the material is written and conceived by Peter Kenyon.

Currently, the band is a 4-piece, with Peter Kenyon (vocals), Jeannie Dee (guitars), Max Lewis (Bass), Zack HS (Drums).
