Day 2

CONFLICT AND CONCURRENCE

Welcome to Day Two  – our second voice of treason! Thanks for stopping in.

We don’t walk around advertising ourselves as an “acoustic band.” Never.

Why? Because the word “acoustic” lives in the brain’s of the general public as a very specific sound and vibe: Folk. Singer-Songwriter. Soft Rock. 

Believe us, we aren’t “anti” any of those genres. Far from it. It’s just that we’re bound to create a “disconnect” with people who read that word, hear our music, and are disappointed because we are rocking it. We prefer people “discover” our “acoustic” soul on their own.

Today, we show how “unplugged” and “heavy” are not contradictions. Yet, the words most definitely can be.

METAL IN THEM THAR HILLS?

One of the ELM TREASON modes of operation is to bring that “electric guitar” attitude to the realm of the “unplugged.” Bang it. Ram it. Jam it. It’s all good. Broken guitar strings be damned, to rock is how we roll. Dig this:

THE MUSIC (SONG 2) – (HAVING IT) ALL WAYS”

Out of sight is out of mind, yet distance warms the heart. Great minds think much alike. Yet fools are seldom apart.

Written by Andrew Roman and Robert Steel

Produced by Elm Treason

Recorded, Mixed and Mastered at Realm Tones Music

Whether it is simultaneously having your cake and eating it too, or getting the best of both possible worlds, or simply wanting it all, the great karmic wheel of the universe often mocks and scoffs. “Yeah, right,” it laughs. So do we. We take some tasty conflicts, face ’em off against each other, and lay ’em on top of some “un-acoustic-like” acoustic grooves. See what we mean here:

“(HAVING IT) ALL WAYS”

(the official lyric video)

LYRICS


If you want something right, go it alone, yet two heads better than one.

The worm’s in the mouth of the early bird, yet wait and good things come.

Look all around before you leap, yet hesitate, you’ve lost.

Many hands make the work so light, yet many cooks kill the broth.

Crossin’ your heart, hopin’ to die, meaningless when you’re livin’ a lie.

Crossin’ your heart, needle in eye, without the heart, don’t even try.

Hitch that wagon to that star, but don’t bite more than you chew.

The wheel with the noise gets all the grease, but silence is golden, too.

Out of sight is out of mind, yet distance warms the heart.

Great minds think much alike, yet fools are seldom apart.

Crossin’ your heart, hopin’ to die, meaningless when you’re livin’ a lie.

Crossin’ your heart, needle in eye, without the heart, don’t even try.

Meanwhile, I’ll figure it out, how the fool is killing the doubt

by wonder or letting it out?

Crossin’ your heart, hopin’ to die. Crossin’ your heart, wonder why, wonder why.

No having it all ways. No walking out free and clear. No having it all ways

No, no, no, no

No having it all ways. No walking out free and clear. No having it all ways

No, no, no, no

A curious cat will wind up dead, yet seek and ye shall find.

The higher you climb, the harder you fall, Yet the limit is the sky.

Laugh and the world will laugh with you, yet misery loves a herd.

The pen has might beyond the sword, Yet actions are louder than words.

Crossin’ your heart, hopin’ to die, meaningless when you’re livin’ a lie.

Crossin’ your heart, needle in eye, without the heart, don’t even try.

Meanwhile, I’ll figure it out, how the fool is killing the doubt

by wonder or letting it out?

Crossin’ your heart, hopin’ to die.  Crossin’ your heart, wonder why, wonder why.

No having it all ways. No walking out free and clear. No having it all ways

No, no, no, no

No having it all ways. No walking out free and clear. No having it all ways.

No, no, no, no

Don’t beat a horse already dead, yet try and try again.

To thine own self be true, but yet in Rome, do like them.

What’s good for the goose is good for all, yet one’s meat is poison to some.

Some may connect with this little song while others are glad that its done.
