about

Toad the Wet Sprocket Santa Barbara, California

Named in honor of a sketch by the Monty Python comedy troupe, this 4-piece band of Santa Barbara, CA high school cronies came to be known as Toad the Wet Sprocket in 1986. To this day, their mellow, melodic folk-pop sound made them one of the most successful alternative rock bands of the early 1990s. ... more

Track Name: All I Want
nothing's so loud as hearing when we lie
the truth is not kind and you've said neither am i

but the air outside so soft is saying everything
everything

all i want is to feel this way
to be this close, feel the same
all i want is to feel this way
the evening speaks, i feel it say

nothing's so cold as closing the heart
when all we need is to free the soul
but we wouldn't be that brave i know

but the air outside so soft confessing everything
everything

all i want is to feel this way
to be this close, feel the same
all i want is to feel this way
the evening speaks, i feel it say

and it won't matter now
whatever happens will be
'though the air speaks of all we'll never be
it won't trouble me

all i want is to feel this way
to be this close, feel the same
all i want is to feel this way
the evening speaks, i feel it say

and it feels so close
let it take me in
let it hold me so
i can feel it say
Track Name: Good Intentions
it's hard to rely on my good intentions
when my head's full of things that i can't mention
it seems i usually get things right
but i can't understand what i did last night

and it's hard to rely on my own good senses
when i miss so much that requires attention
i have to laugh at myself sometimes
but i can see that i'm not blind

there's little relief
give us reprieve, oh
but for all the things i've left behind
i'm positive that i'm not blind

i'm not afraid things won't get better
but it feels like this has gone on forever
you have to cry with your own blue tears
have to laugh with your own good cheer

and it's hard to rely on my good intentions
when my head's full of things that i can't mention
it seems i usually get things right
but i can't understand what i did last night

there's little relief
give us reprieve, oh
and imagining the world outside
i'm positive that i'm not blind

i can't be hard on you
'cause you know i've been there too
i've learned a lot of things from you

but life gives little relief
give us reprieve, oh
and when everyone is cold as ice
i clench my fists and close my eyes
imagining the world outside
and i can see that i'm not blind
Track Name: Brother
i find my brother in there
deep in my heart
i find my brother in there
hold in my arms
i love you
and if I seem too quiet now
there are no words
to tell you how
i love you

i often feel
like the prodigal son
take all I need
giving back none
our beauty shows
in such different ways
you're like the light behind the fog
so soft
but still you burn my eyes away

i find my brother in there
deep in my heart
i find my brother in there
hold in my arms
i love you
and if I feel too quiet now
there are no words to show you how
i love you

so much has changed
and so much has happened these years
but still I find
you're waiting here
we have a bond
that nothing can change
and still I find
a peace of mind
whenever I hear your name

and if I seem too quiet now
there are no words to show you how
i love you
my brother
Track Name: Come Down
open up and let me in
i was lucky to live don't need to win
forgave myself and if that's a sin
it's not enough you'd even know it

did right to call my bluff
'cause i won't say when i have had enough
i worked so hard to need this stuff
and you tried so long to just ignore it

won't you come down where i am
words are hidden, understand

i won't repeat myself again
i will not repeat myself again
it's another promise d.o.a.
and despite my every hope
there's no truth behind my best intentioned oath

won't you come down where i am
words are hidden, understand
won't you come down
i've been away too long i know i have

won't you come down where i am
there is healing in your hands
won't you come down where i am
words are hidden
been away too long
i know i've been away too long
i know i have
Track Name: Something's Always Wrong
another day, i call and never speak
and you would say, "nothing's changed at all"
and i can't feel much hope for anything
if I won't be there to catch you if you fall

and again (again we fail)
it seems we meet (to meet and mend)
in the spaces (the spaces safe)
in between (between intent)
we always say (we say too much)
"it won't be long" (and long been gone)
oh, but something's always wrong

another game of putting things aside
as if we'll come back to them sometime
a brace of hopes
a pride of innocence
and you would say something has gone wrong

and again (again we fail)
it seems we meet (meet and mend)
in the spaces (the spaces safe)
in between (between intent)
we always say (we say much)
"it won't be long" (and long been gone)
oh, but something's always wrong

and again (again we fail)
it seems we meet (to make amends)
in the spaces (and wend our way)
in between (between intent)
we always say (and ooking back)
"it won't be long" (not moving on)
oh, but something's always wrong
something's always wrong
something's always wrong
Track Name: Walk on the Ocean
we spotted the ocean at the head of the trail
where are we going, so far away
and somebody told me that this is the place
where everything's better, everything's safe

walk on the ocean
step on the stones
flesh becomes water
wood becomes bone

half and hour later we packed up our things
we said we'd send letters and all those little things
and they knew we were lying but they smiled just the same
it seemed they'd already forgotten we'd came

walk on the ocean
step on the stones
flesh becomes water
wood becomes bone

now back at the homestead
where the air makes you choke
and people don't know you
and trust is a joke
we don't even have pictures
just memories to hold
that grow sweeter each season
as we slowly grow old
Track Name: Fall Down
she said "i'm fine, i'm okay" cover up your trembling hands
there's indecision when you know you ain't got nothing left
when the good times never stay
and the cheap thrills always seem to fade away
when will we fall
when will we fall down

jump back, got to get out of here
been too, too long this time
jump back, got to get out of here
when will, when will we fall down

she hates her life she hates her skin she even hates her friends
tries to hold on to all the reputations she can't mend
and there's some chance we could fail
but the last time someone was always there for bail
when will we fall
when will we fall down

jump back, got to get out of here
been too, too long this time
jump back, got to get out of here
when will, when will we fall down

she said "i'm fine, i'm okay" cover up your trembling hands
there's indecision when you know you ain't got nothing left
for the last time conscience calls
for a good friend I was never there at all
when will we fall down
Track Name: Crazy Life
anyway now it don't seem right
he is in there and you're on the outside
over pine ridge to wounded knee
there's blood on the ground as far as you see
crazy life

in the air i'm sensing a change in the weather
in the end the path is clear

does anyone remember here
did you all think he'd just disappear
crazy life
what have you done with Peltier
who did you think you'd taken away
crazy life

in the air i'm sensing a change in the weather
in the end the path is clear

burying won't stop it breathing forever
underground it takes to root

anyway it don't seem right
he is in there and you're on the outside
what have you done with Peltier
who did you think you'd taken away
it's not over...
Track Name: Windmills
i spend too much time raiding windmills
we go side by side
laugh until it's right

there's something that you won't show
waiting where the light goes

take the darkest hour, break it open
water to repair what we have broken

there's something that you won't show
waiting where the light goes
and maybe anywhere the wind blows
it's all worth waiting for

pull on the borders to lighten the load
tell all the passengers we're going home

i spend too much time seeking shelter
but world without end couldn't hold her

there's something that you won't show
waiting where the light goes
and maybe anywhere the wind blows
it's all worth waiting for
any way the wind blows
Track Name: Crowing
you've been waiting
to find
you could've been happier
given the time
if he'd make up his mind
you'd give yourself to anybody
who would cross that line

and it was never question
he was crowing for repair
you'd give him love and affection
but you couldn't keep him there

you get over regrets
while you were sleeping with the angels
he was under the bed
and the more skin that you shed
the more that the air in your throat will linger
when you call him your friend

and it was never question
he was crowing for repair
you'd give him love and affection
but you couldn't keep him there

staring at a cold little hand
reading fault lines
of a shell of a man
you were waiting for a word from above
wouldn't you know it
no answer ever did come

and it was never question
you were crowing for repair
you'd give him love and affection
but you couldn't keep him there
Track Name: I Will Not Take These Things for Granted
one part of me just wants to tell you everything
one part just needs the quiet
and if i'm lonely here, i'm lonely here
and on the telephone
you offer reassurance

i will not take these things for granted

how can i hold the part of me that only you can carry
it needs a strength i haven't found
and if it's frightening, i'll bear the cold
and on the telephone
you offer warm asylum

i'm listening
flowers in the garden
laughter in the hall
children in the park
i will not take these things for granted
any more

to crawl inside the wire and feel something near me
to feel this accepting
that it is lonely here, but not alone
and on the telephone
you offer visions dancing

i'm listening
music in the bedroom
laughter in the hall
dive into the ocean
singing by the fire
running through the forest
and standing in the wind
in rolling canyons

i will not take these things for granted
i will not take these things for granted
i will not take these things for granted
any more
