Lyrics:

Pathway to war…

Start the foreplay, aggravated.
Take a look here, watch it glow.
Counting days, we are barricaded.
What’s the pathway I don’t know.

Can you see the wolf as it stands in between us?
Just walk away and tell the people we’re no more.

Bare your fangs now, am I crazy?
Is she here now? Is it real?
I don’t see you, you’re hiding.
She is here now, this is real.

Can you see the wolf as it stands in between us?
Just walk away and tell the people we’re no more.
Can you see the wolf as it stands in between us?
And as we fall we understand we are at war.

Pathway to war…

Can you see the wolf as it stands in between us?
And as we fall we understand we are at war.

Pathway to war!

“Tom Waits has personally been one my biggest influences growing up, there was a time I worshiped his albums, ‘Alice’ and ‘Blood Money’,” K’noup said.  “From his poetry to his voice he is truly a one of a kind artist and I’ll admit it at times I’ve taken a page out of his book when I would go into character.  So with all that being said I wanted to write a little song honoring him. Hopefully if he ever hears it he wont stuff it in a thimble with the rest of mankind lol.”

 

“Why not?” said theoudplayer. “We reached back a bit into our historical DNA and this is what came out, gotta love it!” he added.

 



After returning to the stage in early 2017 the band has been writing and recording actively the past several months, concentrating on composing new material as the band enters a new chapter of its growth.

Lyrics:

 

She plays the fiddle like a riddle,

with her hands on deck, 

she will hand you a subpoena,

before she hands you a check. 

 

She’s quite impressive, 

yet quite depressive.  

 

She likes Ben-Hur but she don’t like Tom, 

because Tom waits for her.

 

Tom waits for her,

but she never comes home.

 

Tom waits for her,

and now she’s left him all alone.

 

Wait! Wait!

It was an exciting journey to put this song together with all the guys – and kudos to K’noup for his excellent as always vocal work collaboration with me,” he added.

Lyrics:

 

A dancing twig is before me.

Narrow eyes but it sees right into my soul.

Dancing twig won’t you show me.

You’ve come around and you won’t let me let go.

 

Dancing twig are you crazy?

All those thorns so you cut me la la la.

I’ve gotta ask do you love me.

You’ve turned around and left me here alone.

 

Staring into the sky you’re all I want.

Dancing twig won’t you love me?

Thinking how I can ask this of you.

Write me a song and we’ll sing.

 

Show me the gold I’m your king.

Put out my hand kiss this ring .

You are the yang to my yang.

 

Dancing twig what’s the story?

You’ve worked me up and I don’t know what to do.

Dancing twig you’re so lonely.

And it’s time to unplug this show for good.

 

Staring into the sky you’re all I want.

Dancing twig won’t you love me?

Thinking how I can ask this of you.

 

Write me a song and we’ll sing.

Show me the gold I’m your king.

Put out my hand kiss this ring .

You are the yang to my yang.

“Sheep is a byproduct of reading Grimm’s Tales for so many years. When I wrote the song I wanted to colorize our current black and white society but in a very capable and simplified context, much like when reading a children’s tale.  From the characters to the melodies it all has to come easy to the listener,” stated K’noup.

“I love experimenting with the oud and using different tones and effects”, said Kzirian. “I feel like it really sets our sound apart from everything else that’s out there, not just for the sake of being different, but because it evokes emotional and spiritual artistic interest in what our ears are hearing,” he added.

After returning to the stage in early 2017 the band has been writing and recording actively the past several months, concentrating on composing new material as the band enters a new chapter of its growth. The band is excited to close the book on these first 6 releases, which has been compiled as a new EP named “The Unorthodox Revival: Volume I”. The band is continuing to write and record a next batch of 6 tracks, with the first song “Pinches” having been released on February 1, 2018 as the first track to be featured on the second volume of “The Unorthodox Revival” series. Subsequent songs – such as the March 1, 2018 release of “Sheep” – will follow the same monthly digital release format.

Lyrics:

 

It’s the last night we’ll meet.

By the pitchforks we’ll sleep.

In a White House we bought.

At least we thought.

 

There’s a man by the tree.

Preying on those that weep.

Are we safe as thought?

I’m afraid not.

 

We’re just sheep living in the dark.

We’re just sheep waiting for the wolves to come and tear our hearts.
