Escape 04:42
Feeling all the rage Feeding it for days The beauty has lost its luster All I hear is hate Seeing all the ways We’ve seemingly gone insane Think of all your lost ones Peeling off the pain Really must escape Make for better space The joys have drowned in our sorrows Breath is hard to take Giving up the game Been feeling it for days The moment has lost momentum And belief is fake Escape Escape Escape Another one dead today And rage is what I pray Breaking all composure Hey that’s all O.K. Time to leave this place Some will choose to stay There’s no room for the dead ones Everything falls away Escape Escape Escape In this age of madness Filled with rage and a false sense of hope We come so close now Has it all been a fucking joke Who writes the narrative Where one thing is more than the rest Destroy the premise And escape this Whatever you call It And these things we are tripping about The beast in the room Where the space between me and you Is in doubt How can we ever be free Ever be free How can we ever be free How can we ever be free How can we ever be free How can we ever be free How can we ever be free How can we ever be free How can we ever be free How can we ever be free

Winds begin to blow Just before the dawn Blackness of a crow New day undone Changes started slow Unraveled by the sun Reaping what is sown New day undone Oh oh Oh oh Oh oh Clouds of flame and smoke Under the gun Nameless faces choke New day undone Forgotten verse evoked What never could be won Demons, they awoke New day undone Oh oh Oh oh Oh oh Dream while you still can Oh lovers hand in hand Help us understand Sing songs that make us laugh And let us gaze upon your fire And dance upon the grave Till we expire Hallowed caverns glow Underground we run Ancient writings show New day undone Bodies overflow Daughters and our sons Everybody knows New day undone Oh oh Oh oh Oh oh Scream while you still can Oh lovers hand in hand Help us understand Sing songs that Make us laugh And fills us Up With your heart's on fire And dance upon the grave Till we expire Dream while you still can Oh lovers hand in hand Help us understand Sing songs that make us laugh And live a life with full desire And lets us gaze upon your naked souls on fire As we dance upon our graves till we all expire New day undone Live and die in the new day undone Live And die on this new day undone

That’s not what I wanted That’s not how I want it to go Hey can we Reset the button Pretend that it wasn’t so And make like a different Option is selected Take on a new life That isn’t so expected That’s not what I wanted That’s not how I want it to go Hey can I Reset the button Pretend that this it isn’t so And make like a different Option is selected Walk down a new road That doesn't seem perfected Go down another path That’s not So perplexing So contrived So destructive So not I This is not what I wanted This is not how I want it to go Hey can we Reset the buttons Live again like it wasn’t so And make like a different Option was selected Take on another choice That wasn’t so invested Go for the life I imagined So creative So alive So playful So sublime So elated So divine So translative So not I That’s not how I want it to go Control-Z Live again like it wasn’t so Control-Z This is not how I want it to go Control-Z Go back a few steps ago Because It doesn’t look so fine It doesn’t seem so grand It doesn’t feel like mine

Blind Spot 04:16
Oh yeah Ooh ooh Hey hey Oooh ooh Fly in the grey zone Wide-eyed and alone Where nothing else is shown I don’t know Avoiding the dangers Escaping every trap As I’m falling through the gaps I don’t know Death to the quester Seeker’s own demise This will be a quick goodbye When I fall for something If I fall at all It won’t be for nothing It’ll be for love When I fall for nothing Or if I fail to fall I will see you waiting At the final call Belief and believers Conspiring to sway New delusions of the day I don’t know Grief is a passage With the power to give birth Collective dreams of mother earth I don’t know Guides me to boldness Letting go of the old ways Ones that kept us all as slaves There’s a holy reason I’ve been called Some might call it treason Or get the cops involved So if i fail to follow I won’t fail at all It won’t be for nothing It’ll be for love When I fall for something Or if I fall at all It won’t be for nothing It’ll be for love So if I fail to follow I won’t fail at all I will be there At the final call When we’re all done breathing And the water’s gone I’ll be there At the final call When the earth starts shaking And the houses fall I’ll be there At the final call Fire’s all consuming There’s nothing left at all I’ll be there At the final call After all our reasons And desires resolve I’ll see you again Maybe at the very end

Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh ah Take my place among the… Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh La la la Bad da da Take my place among the stars Hey Hey can it wait I’m feeling low now Feeling off my game You can hang around As I’m spinning in one place My feet left the ground And I’m falling far from grace Take my place among the stars My place among the stars This place we go This place I know Where time And the darkness And the pressure Through the void Hey now How can we complain? We’ve come so far Through the losses and the gains The dream alone The dream cannot contain The full expression Of the things we can’t explain Take my place among the stars Take my place among the stars Take my place among the stars Take my place among the stars Take my place among the stars Take my place among the stars Take my place among the stars Take my place among the stars

It’s really coming down on this day Here’s a tree where we can gather Sheltering us from the rain What if we disarm together Letting go of all these past days Maybe it dispels the weather Tooth and claw and fight are the old ways Rain’s coming down (comin’ comin’ comin’ down) Rain’s coming down (comin’ comin’ comin’ down) On this land Rain’s coming down (comin’ comin’ comin’ down) On this land It's even raining on our high ground The evidence says now or never Here’s my chance to make a new choice Maybe we should stand together Letting go of all these past days Can we really change the weather Tooth and claw and fight are the old Ways Wrongs don’t make a right We can all stay And dream of better days When dogs are at play Rain’s coming down (comin’ comin’ comin’ down) Rain’s coming down (comin’ comin’ comin’ down) On this land Rain’s coming down (comin’ comin’ comin’ down) On this land We know what this conflict’s about It’s that we can’t see each other Sometimes it helps our plight to lash out But in the end we’re all still brothers It’s time to look at all these past days Turn around and face the weather Tooth and claw and fight are the old ways Rain’s coming down (comin’ comin’ comin’ down) Rain’s coming down (comin’ comin’ comin’ down) On this land Rain’s coming down (comin’ comin’ comin’ down) On this land

Sold Out 04:11
You are just one man Work alone to break the rules you could not bend Soon you can So you think it through Selling scrap that’s valueless to me and you Think it through You’ve sold out and you sold again The feeling lingers Pretend that you can let it go You dig down and you feel the sand Fall through your fingers And pretend that you can let it go Now your plan unfolds Hard to tell just what you’re passing off as gold That halo’s old So the deal goes down, down, down You’re really going down Knock it down and let it roll You’ve sold out and you sold again The feeling lingers Pretend that you can let it go You dig down and you feel the sand Fall through your fingers Pretend that you can let it go Yeah Yeah So you’ve sold out and you sold again The feeling lingers Pretend that you can let it go And you dig down and you feel the sand Fall through your fingers Pretend that you can let it go So you’ve sold out and you sold again The feeling lingers Pretend that you can let it go And you dig down and you feel the sand Fall through your fingers

When I fall into this groove I cannot break Leave the lights on If I drift to one side And fold before it takes Leave the lights on The time before when I tried Was like one big mistake Leave the lights on yeah Leave the lights on

Frozener 06:37
Can you see it Can you see it now Everything moves so fast and I’m going blind It puts you under And drags you away Try to remember But it just fades Away yeah Away yeah Away yeah yeah yeah Can you hear it? Can you hear it now? Everything moves so fast and I’m going blind It puts you under And drags you away Try to remember But it just fades Away yeah Away yeah Away yeah yeah yeah Away yeah Away yeah Away yeah yeah Out in the sun Out in the sun Out in the sun Away away away Out in the sun Out in the sun Every day’s the same thing Can you see it? Can you hear it now? Everything moves so fast and I’m going blind It puts you under And drags you away Try to remember But it just fades Away yeah Away yeah Away yeah yeah yeah Can you feel it? Can you feel it now? Everything moves so fast and I’m going blind It puts you under And drags you away Try to remember But it just fades Away yeah Away yeah Away yeah yeah yeah Away yeah Away yeah Away yeah yeah yeah Away yeah Away yeah Away yeah yeah yeah Away yeah Away yeah Away yeah yeah yeah Tried to stop it It chewed me up And spit me out Into the great big sea I floated about To catch my breath As angels fell Away from me Out on the ocean For so long Staring at the sun all day Moving pictures Flashed across the sky And every day the Same damn thing Moving images Flashed across my mind Before surrendering To the big blue deep Away yeah Away yeah

about

Where do we even start with the story about New Day Undone?

We wrote and started recording the songs in the early 00s in San Francisco back while the dot-boom went dot-bust. We had just enough know-how to record ourselves in our Rocker (now defunct) rehearsal space using some early digital recording gear. Right about the time we should have been tracking vocals and guitars, life took blert members in different directions (literally and metaphorically) and the band went into hibernation. Chris recorded guitar tracks and mixed the songs and everyone was happy to get a souvenir from those years.

Flash forward to 2019 and the band sparks renewed interest in these songs with the help of Tasha. Half of the band is in Portland, the other half in the SF Bay Area, but that physical divide didn't hinder the collaboration on writing lyrics. When they were ready, the band recorded vocals and mixed the new tracks with the original full-band mixes from 2005.

Each of the 11 songs on this album represents a connection between the present and the past, yet Frozener stands out from the pack. The song is a recapitulation of Frozen from the band's previous "For Obvious Reasons" release. By asking Nolan Love to join on vocals and Dan Aronen to join on Guitar, blert pulled members from each stage of its evolution onto one track.
