The long-contained third effort by Look Left is finally available. They explore all new styles of music ranging from funk to latin to a capella choir. Their warm harmonies, slap bass, and acoustic clang are all present once again and it's sure to keep old, and new fans alike singing its catchy refrains for years to come.

about

Look Left Phoenix, Arizona

Look Left was formed in 2008 when Jared Clark (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar) decided he wanted to be a rock musician. He went out into the harrowing Northwestern Pennsylvania tundra, bought a microphone and started recording. He was joined by Derek Wilber (Bass), Andrew Cotts (Guitar/Backing Vocals), and Matt Royek (Cajon/Percussion/Oddjobs).

LATER after graduating the college, Jared continues alone.

Track Name: Stroke 'em If You Got 'em
can you make it real?
can you take it to the highest places
can you cop a feel?
can you shake it in the driest faces

it comes undone
the last is one
it comes undone
the smoking gun

let out your soul and feed the fire
taking the place of whole desire
smile on this earth and raise the choir
can’t fade away
we’re bringin’ it back today
st-st-st-stroke em if ya got em

interlude

will you shred the fake
will you turn on the light and make it better
will you give the take
will you jingle and jive to try and get her

pre-chorus and chorus

Solo

Chorus
Track Name: Goin' To Maine
woke up at 4
callin’ my dad to see if he can drop me off at the airport
my cary-on bag, has enough clothes
to last me
I got it all set up
face book status updated so my page won’t be berated with the
hey where are you?
don’t ignore me

I’ll tell ‘em that, I’m gonna be in Portland
I hope they can keep, their Jealousy under wraps

the doors draw back by themselves and I awaken
hear the wind blowin’ in my ears
though the seat next to me may contain something contagious
an itch can’t pull the smile out of me
now the seat belt light is on if you can make it to the
bathroom it’s already to late
so, put your head phones on and when you open your
eyes you’ll be in Maine

I step out into the conditioned air of the glorious
Portland international Jetport,
yes, all 7 gates of it
woah! all the lights the blurry sights
you know those sights seen so unsightly
I’ll give it a day or two, see if the sun keeps this shade of grey

I hit the club, or should I say the Denny’s
Maybe I’ll go mess with Stephen King

Chorus

snow hats, lobsters, pine trees, chowder
it’s so cold my breath is solid I made an igloo out of my dinner and

Chorus
Track Name: Breathe In
Breathe in, fade away
breathe in, feel decay
 
all I know is dead and gone
we left back at golden pond
and though you were cold as ice
the flowers on your grave looked nice
 
reach up and pull the cord
relax and grind your sword
If I don’t seek reward
What’s it we’re moving toward
 
Breathe in, fade away
breathe in, feel decay
 
I look back you drift along
Reading write compose the song
Feel it right where short is long
Hear it now and then it’s gone
 
reach up and pull the cord
relax and grind your sword
If I don’t seek reward
What’s it we’re moving toward
 
Breathe in, fade away
breathe in, feel decay
breathe in
Track Name: It's Raining
Sunday is speaking little poems for all the people
Dots on the sidewalk tiny letters of glass
the briefcase apostle grumbles coldly and calls it evil
he sneers on the specter dancing round in the grass

the stranger out wild all wet but all smiles
sings honestly

stay around for the rain
the lyrical rescue human distinction stolen away
days will change and will fade
the weather’s still good, won’t you stay

what is a person when his passions have no venue
where are the lovers in this frightened land
weather can worsen but the sky can also cleanse you
feel it’s elation weep into your hands

he kneels on a stair gives the simplest of prayers
“I thank you”

stay around for the rain
the shelters of silver, shapes of the first song we ever sang
days will change and will fade
wish as we may, nothing stays

oh....

shine your eyes through the torrent never move your gaze
days have changed, gone away, gone away
much as we like we can’t stay
nothing stays, nothing stays
Track Name: Too Much Trouble For One Day
if you find it, gotta let it go
for cheap containment, I can barely swallow
if you want it, let it grow
for my entertainment, put me on your show

acidic liquid on his skin
won’t melt away the shroud of anger
one made of wood, one salty grin
we have to let him know that it was
too much trouble for one day

it breeds from this,
faith shatters on the solid walls
expressions of a learned helplessness
the pain scraped from bliss,
another empty metaphor surrounds
a frightened soul expressionless

acidic liquid on his skin
won’t melt away the shroud of anger
one made of wood, one salty grin
we have to let him know that it was
too much trouble for one day

oh

this is the part where everything starts, can I find another rhyme to keep emotion moving closer can I stop, go, lemme know, does it make your heart glow, find it then you rip then you never let it out no.

acidic liquid on his skin
won’t melt away the shroud of anger
one made of wood, one salty grin
we have to let him know that it was
too much trouble for one day
Track Name: You Won't Get Far
we could smell the sea breezes, rolling off the sun
Just in time to watch, when our life had begun
when we gazed, upon the rolling daze
we tried to find the truth, but it was just another phase.

How do you know, that this was right
How do you know, I won’t put up a fight
to take a jump from our flying love live
to take it all with the swing of a bloody knife

let me in your sight
let me in your grasp
let me in your life
let me in your past
before I take it back

you won’t get far
see if you can make it to your car
no you won’t get far
take another step away, and you’ll be sleepin’ in the stars

the fiery machine, that is your heart
has become frozen, and shattered all apart
to come back to me, and regain your soul
we must both be willing, to sacrifice the goal

Repeat pre-chorus and chorus

ecco già l’ alb’ appare
e si specchia nel mare
e rasserena il cielo
e imperla il dolce gielo
Track Name: The Lyrical
I wake to find your shining cloud
what delicate stillness from the heavens, you were endowed

stretched over concrete our passion, vast
collapsing distance, love; our present, never past

The typing mass of sound remains
I will wait until the last drop drains.

The lyrical writes
The lyrical wants
The lyrical tries to find the end of this suffering
The lyrical pines
The lyrical haunts
The lyrical tries to find the end of this suffering

together, our love will overflow
but still we have the room for your charm
forget about your last remaining foe
come with me, take my arm

he loves his pretty baby,
sends his letters 15 hundred miles
(repeat)
there is no chink or weakness
little cameras, bigger smiles

Our jump, to the next life begins now
let’s see where it’ll take us, if time will allow

Feeling the black forest close upon me
this was not something that I was meant to see

They typing mass of sound remains
I will wait until the last drop drains.

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: I Hope it's for Good
You nearly had me one time,
I thought your love was sublime
But every thing that you said,
Just made me wish I was dead.

And so I called you my friend,
You say that this is at an end,
And these new friends that you made,
Have only made you afraid.

And I hope it's for good,
Yeah, I hope it's for good,
Because I've seen it before,
still came back for more,
You say you're ready,
But you're so unsteady,
You're just a leaf in the wind,
don't come back again!
Oh, no!

I bet your friends don't know
Your name's an alter-ego
You could have changed it again
But you keep sayin' you're him

Said you had left this scene
Two years ago, breakin' clean,
A week ago you stopped by
To bid your final goodbye,

And I hope it's for good,
Yeah, I hope it's for good,
Because I've seen it before,
still came back for more,
You say you're ready,
But you're so unsteady,
You're just a leaf in the wind,
don't come back again!
Oh, no!

You say you're ready,
But you're so unsteady,
You're just a leaf in the wind,
don't come back again!
Oh, no!

One day your friends won't be there,
And then nobody will care,
They'll see what's really inside:
The dirty secrets you hide.

But don't come crawling to me,
I have declared myself free,
I've pushed you out of my heart,
And now I'm glad we're apart.

And I hope it's for good,
Yeah, I hope it's for good,
Because I've seen it before,
still came back for more,
You say you're ready,
But you're so unsteady,
You're just a leaf in the wind,
don't come back again!
Oh, no!
Track Name: Legend
So I’m listenin’, mark the phrase and re-listenin’
Find the change I’ve been missin’ watchin’ heels and toes
And bro’s and those with clothes that don’t stay on
When the sun glows,
Find the leader and follow, mix the meter and wallow
Move the feet and walk down the street

At tempo

Detail, ten hut!

Hear the drums, keep the pace. Around here
Watch the turn, nail the face. Around here
Crank the toe, stretch the gait. Around here
March the form, don’t be late. Around here

Get up!

I’m driftin, turn the torso and twistin’
forty five I can’t miss it, split the hash and go fishin’
Get my food on a rookie mission
Step the line and keep in time till it’s time to dine
Crush your junk in two

Alright, next command begins drilldown
Mark time march
For ward march, to the rear march, backward march
To the right flank march, left flank march, to the rear march, detail halt!
hup hup ready ho!

Grab a plate, hurry up wait
you cant say that we did not feed you
Choke it down, hit the ground
and run It back and get to that dot

detail ten hut!
Track Name: Winter Evening
I don’t mind
When the chill creeps up on me
I don’t care
If the wind blows down my door
who can tell
When the cold will bend my tree, I’ll still be
comin’ back will gun-wounds, wanting more

I don’t know
How much colder it can get
I can see
The water in my breath
Into my arms
The frost will push you closer yet, so give me
One more kiss and I can welcome death

I can’t be afraid, squeeze your hand, I got it made
Made with your touch
So turn off the heat, our bodies will meet, and baby, I’ll keep you warm

I don’t mind
If my ears and nose turn blue
I don’t care
If I can’t feel my toes
Cause I know
It just brings me closer to you, and we can
Snuggle up while ‘round us, still it
snows
Track Name: No One
*spoken* listen, cause there’s only so many times I can sing this before I just break down.

asleep by the window
I retreat inside myself,
the excess running down my cheek
it’s hard to breath

I can’t bare that you know.
hopeful generations break.
to see myself alone and weak
it’s hard to breath

and as I watch you turn away
I know that no tear that I shed
and no word that I write and
no chord that I play will ever fill this emptiness
no

sit watching the grass grow
mistakes and second chances
squandered by a thoughtless hand
it burns beneath

I can’t feel my blood flow
watch it run and free itself
from a body not worth making stand
it burns beneath

and as I watch you turn away
I know that no tear that I shed
and no word that I write and
no chord that I play will ever fill this emptiness
no

and as I watch you turn away
I know that everything, everything
everything I worked for was not enough
I deserve no one, and no one deserves me
Track Name: If you're not worried
If you’re not worried then say the line
If you’re not worried then look in my face
If you’re not worried then be the way you
said you were, if that’s your all then
give it to me
drink some soup

can’t call back a bullet once you
send it out
and I don’t have all day for this

If you’re not angry then say you aren’t
If you’re not angry don’t spit in my face
If you’re not angry un-break my arm and,
fix my chair and, re-set the
Table for me
have some tea

can’t call back a bullet once you
send it out
and I don’t have all day for this

If you’re not crazy then fix you’re eyes
If you’re not crazy stop making that face
If you’re not crazy un-tie my legs,
return my coat and unlock this
basket for me
let me out

can’t call back a bullet once you
send it out
and I don’t have all day for this
(repeat last line a bunch)
Track Name: Top
I’ve been down, at the bottom
so believe me I know, how you feel
and baby if you hadn’t let the sun, go down on me
then it wouldn’t be so lonely
at the top

when you said, that you didn’t love me
I thought I would never stand on these two feet again
if there were so many fish, left in the sea
then why would it be so lonely
at the top

spoken: “you know what’s comin’ next”

you keep pushin’ me down, underwater
and I can’t make gills, out of these dollar bills
and baby if there hadn’t been the time, if there hadn’t been a way
then I couldn’t stand here before you
I couldn’t get get on my knees here and say
oh
(sax solo)

there you go, now you have me
I’ve splattered my soul all over the page
I’m gonna take another swig, of this bottle for free
and I’ll pretend it ain’t so lonely
at the top
