When you take me by the hand We will reach the promised land On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day When you take me by the hand We will reach the promised land On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day If only I had known right away What I'd come to know but today I would be a much richer man If only I had known right away The things that can change in a day One minute good and then bad If only I had known right away But if you take me by the hand We will reach the promised land On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day If you take me by the hand We will reach the promised land On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day If only I had known right away What money and greed have to say The route of all evil is planned If only I had known yesterday I'd turn round and walk the other way They'll cheat you, rob you and scam If only I had known right away But if you take me by the hand We will reach the promised land On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day If you take me by the hand We will reach the promised land On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day On the bright side of the day On the right side of the day If only I had known right away

I look in the mirror and what do I see A faded resemblance A version of me In a look, hey Beware of the man your karma has sent Takes all your money Ideas and friends In a look, hey Needless desires Delusions of grand Fame and the ego have tainted the man In a look, hey In a look, hey In a look, hey In a look, hey In a look, hey

A salesman came calling said won't you be mine I'll give you great riches if you give me some time And all that I ask for is 10 pounds a week A modest deposit and commission fee I ask you politely to sign on the line And thank you so much for your cash and your time A few days later the goods did arrive They weren't quite what I'd asked for but I gave them a try But after a short time they all went berserk The customer service left me in the lurch A call to the helpline but still no reply I'm lost in the call centre yet one more time And still I am paying 10 pounds a week The banks are all bankers they've all become thieves The office of fair trading has had to resign The watchdog is funded by weasels and slime I'm left with these goods that are useless to me And what is to come stuck in bureaucracy A Salesman came calling said won't you be mine

I'm tired of going in a straight line All the better days are gone, gone But I hope and I pray For another way, yeah Another way, yeah Another way, yeah Another way I'm sick of hearing about the old times Even thought they were more fun, fun Coz I want mine today Looking for another way, yeah Another way, yeah Another way, yeah Another way Be whatever, we'll go far Will be what will be I'm coming down the mountain See what I can find Looking for a hero To help me with my mind Liberate the head Modify the goal I don't need a reason Into the great unknown

You turn me away I'm not clear where I'm at Now you've entered my heart The whirlwind has taken me off To a new place And set me a path Now I'm not looking for an answer I'm just wishing for that fair share Now I'm returning into sand Could you be the one to set me free Could you be the one to rescue me Could you be the one to ease my mind Could you be the one the rarer kind Wishing and hoping And wondering and praying For where we could be Singing and laughing And loving and dancing It's all part of being High on everything we can be Wind the river down the old sea Now I'm returning into sand Could you be the one to set me free Could you be the one to rescue me Could you be the one to ease my mind Could you be the one the rarer kind Hey, hey, hey, hey Hey, hey, hey Hey, hey, hey, hey Hey, hey, hey Could you be the one to set me free Could you be the one to rescue me Could you be the one to ease my mind Could you be the one the rarer kind Ah, ah As I return into the sand

You fill be confidence Fuel me with greed High expectations And low self esteem But oh there you go Oh there you go Oh there you go, Oh You're my dream You take me away From this world for the day I've had enough Enough of it's ways Then oh there you go Oh there you go Oh there you go, Oh You're my dream You're my dream You're my dream You're my dream Ah, ah, ah ..... Can't always be lovely Can't always be true A thousand dead flowers Went sour for you But now and then Things can turn Look can bring anything Everything, Angels sing Showers of blue You're my dream You're my dream You're my dream You're my dream You're my dream I get what I get And I need what I need There's so many ways To make me believe Don't live with regret You'll find you're own way And learn to be you And live for the day You're my dream You're my dream You're my dream, dream, dream, dream You're my dream You're my dream

Sitting on the top of a monument Watching the world go by Sitting on the edge of a shoreline Watching the world sail by Sitting on the top of a mountain Watching the clouds, high Sitting on a lunar surface Watching the world die Sitting on the edge of the universe tonight Mm, space dust Mm, space Mm Mm, There's no race hear We just glide We just glide Every now and then We Collide Sitting on the edge of a lunar landscape Up, some new chemical formulae

about

The third album from The Gravitons, 'Gentlemens Club', is very much in the spirit of the first album 'Redetermination'. Retro 60's and 70's folk rock vibes combine with contemporary Indie rock to forge out the unique sound of The Gravitons.

Laced with melodies, acoustic guitars, Hammond organs, twangy electric guitars, harmonicas and vintage keyboard sounds you'll quickly be transported into a familiar yet original zone.

A heap of beautiful songs about the human way ......

Flavours include sweat, sour, success, failure, hope, betrayal, birth, death, love, loss, redemption, spirit, determination, work, rest, busyness, laziness, fairness, unfairness, anger, forgiveness, mortality, joy, taking and giving.




Review

"This time last year we were raving about the excellent debut album from The Gravitons, 'Redetermination' contained an amazing bundle of work shaped loosely around the Psychedelic Folk genre, those surreal qualities and charming arrangements are still frequently aired around here. Surprised and relieved the latest release 'Gentlemens Club' hasn..t wandered to far from tentatively executed progressive folk and enlightened storytelling. The overall higher percentage of homespun acoustic ditties subsequently draws you closer, entering a song on even terms always gets the best results. A fantastic release, you..re never going to get a straight forward release from The Gravitons, whether it..s toying with folk or articulating different beats, pushing boundaries with multi-influenced concepts seems an almost natural musical journey." --Mojophenia

Review

"...when I listen to this album, I feel like I should be on highway during a long extensive car drive. But this is not a bad thing, this is a good thing. I love listening to music on long car drives and this is just the perfect fit for that." --Indie Rock Kid
