about

Fresh off of a European tour promoting "Mockingbirds", the boys and girl of Nowherebound immediately hunkered down in Natchet's infamous Bunker Studio in East Austin to start production of their newest full length album, "All We Got Is Everything To Lose". Production wrapped up in only a couple of months, but the result is some of the most intricate and thought out material from the band to date.

Originally conceptualized as an acoustic record, the album evolved into a "softer-than-Mockingbirds" electric album while still maintaining the brash anthemic punch and Irish-Folk swagger the band is now well-known for. This is absolutely a classic, sing along, raise your fist, Nowherebound album with songs like "Orchards of Gold", "The Tides", "Sing Her Out" and "Erin Go Home", however, "AWGIETL"stretches out and expands into production and sonic experimentation with songs like "Dread Silence", "Fade To Black", "Sudden Desperation", and "Settle Up Down The Road". All of the songs on this record seem to flow together, making the album a whole entity, easily listened to as one piece of music. A definite must-have for your record collection.

Track Name: Orchards of Gold
ORCHARDS OF GOLD
WELL I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING SIP MY COFFEE WITH MY DEMONDS
THEN I SMOKE A COUPLE CIGGARETTS AS I TURN ON THE TV
AND I FLIP IT TO THE NEWS BUT ITS NEVER ANY GOOD NEWS

SOMEONE OUT THERE’S ALWAYS HUNGRY SOMEONES CALLING OUT FOR WAR
THEN IT ALL FAIDS INTO STATIC AND I’M PANICED ON THE FLOOR STARING AT
JUNK MAIL AND BILLS AND THE BILLS ARE CHANGING COLOR

AND I WONT SIT AND WATCH MY LIFE FLY BY LIKE ITS SOME SORT OF SICK JOKE
FOR EVERY MILE I EVER PUT BEHIND ME THERES A NOTCH CARVED IN MY SOUL
AND I WILL TRAVEL UNTIL I FIND THOSE ORCHARDS OF GOLD

SO I STEP OUT TO THE FRONT PORCH WHATCH THE NEIGHBORHOOD DRIVE BY
GHOST HEADED TO THE GRAVEYARD TO STRESS AWAY THERE LIVES
AND I WONDER IF THEY’VE EVER TRULY FELT, THE SUN UPON THERE FACE

SO I STEP INTO MY WORK BOOTS AND I WALK DOWN TO THE BAR
ROLL THREES AWAY AND DROP ALL OF MY CHANGE INTO THE JUKEBOX
AND I’LL DRINK AWAY A HARD DAY AND SING UNTIL THE STARS FADE AWAY

AND I WONT SIT AND WATCH MY LIFE FLY BY LIKE ITS SOME SORT OF SICK JOKE
FOR EVERY MILE I EVER PUT BEHIND ME THERES A NOTCH CARVED IN MY SOUL
AND I WILL TRAVEL UNTIL I FIND THOSE ORCHARDS OF GOLD
Track Name: The Tides
THE TIDES

OH WHEN THE TIDES, COME ROLLIN’ IN
WILL YOU SINK OR WILL YOU SWIM?
JUST LIFT ME UP, BRING ME ASHORE
‘TIL FAIR WEATHER BRINGS THIS SAILOR BACK FOR MORE
BUT UNTIL THEN, LET’S DROWN IN ALE
DON’T NEED NO PADDLE, DON’T NEED NO PAIL,
AND WHEN WE THIRST FOR OPEN AIR,
AND LIVIN’ FREE OF WORRY, FREE OF IDLE CARES
WE’LL RIDE ‘EM OUT…

WELL THAT’S ONE MORE FUCKING BATTLE SCAR
WELL BANG IT OUT ON YOUR GUITAR
I GOTTA CURE THIS BROKEN HEART, LET’S GO OUT TO THE BAR
I’LL PICK YOU UP, AND WE’LL HIT THIS TOWN
LET’S FIND A PLACE WHERE WE CAN DROWN
WE’LL SET ‘EM UP, AND KNOCK ‘EM DOWN, AND KNOCK ‘EM DOWN SOME MORE

LET’S STRUM SOME CHORDS AND SING SOME SONGS
ABOUT THE GIRLS WHO DID US WRONG
WE’LL SING UNTIL THE NIGHT IS DONE, AND THEN WE’LL SING SOME MORE
SEE MUSIC SOOTHES THE SAVAGE BEAST
WELL BE IT FAMINE, BE IT FEAST
AND ON AND ON AND ON…

WELL LET’S TAKE THESE SONGS OF BROKEN MEN,
I’LL GRAB AN AXE, YOU GRAB A PEN
WE’LL SCRIBBLE IT ALL DOWN AND PUT THE HORSE BEHIND THE CART
I THINK WE SHOULD RECORD THESE TUNES
WELL YEAH, I LIKE TO PARTY TOO
LET’S PUT THESE SONGS TO TAPE, AND THEN WE’LL BURN ‘EM IN OUR HEARTS

LET’S TAKE THIS CIRCUS ON THE ROAD
WE’LL CALL UP FRIENDS TO SHARE THE LOAD
AND OVER OCEANS, TO NEW LANDS, AND RIGHT BACK TO THE START
I’LL SING ST. CHRISTOPHER AND I,
LET’S FIND A PLANE AND GRAB SOME SKY
AND ON AND ON AND ON…
Track Name: Sing Her Out
SING HER OUT

VERSE 1

WELL I NEVER REALLY FIT IN, IN THE TOWN WHERE I WAS RAISED
WE DINED ON CIGARETTES IN COFFEE SHOPS WHEN SMOKING WAS OKAY
AND I LEARNED ABOUT TRUE WRECKAGE ON SOME RECORDS IN THE SHADE
WITH A DARK HAIRED GIRL WHO’D NEVER LOVE ME BACK

SO AUSTIN WAS A SHELTER FOR A SMALL TOWN BOY TO RUN
HAD ROCK N ROLL FOR BREAKFAST, HAD LIBERTY FOR LUNCH
MET A VEGAN GIRL IN LEATHER, WHO WAS ALWAYS UP FOR FUN
TIL CASKETS ROLLED, AND LIGHT GAVE WAY TO BLACK

YOUR HEART COULD BREAK OR IT COULD BEND,
STAY ON YOUR KNEES OR CHOOSE TO MEND,
SAVED BY THE LYRICS NOT YET PENNED,
WE'RE SINGING HER OUT...

SO WE GO ALONG TO GET ALONG, AND NEVER GET BRUISED
GONNA PICK UP CINDERELLA WITH A BOX OF NEW SHOES
AND SHE’LL TELL ME OF FORGIVENESS, AND I’LL TELL HER BOUT THE BLUES
AND WE’LL SING IT ON, WE’LL SING HER GONE, WE’LL SING HER OUT

WELL PUNK ROCK WAS SALVATION, AND FRIENDS WERE POURED IN BARS
AND MUSIC TOLD US STORIES, AND THE STORIES WORE OUR SCARS.
AND SOMEONE IN MY MEMORY STRUCK A CHORD ON A GUITAR
AND ITS CHORUS FOR US ALL, BUILT US TO LAST

WHILE FAITH WAS RIDING SHOTGUN, WE LEFT ROMANCE BACK AT HOME
WE’D GO WALKABOUT FOREVER, INTO THE GREAT UNKNOWN.
LEFT A HEARTFELT KISS UPON THE TOP OF A LOVE ONCE CARVED FROM STONE
NOW JUST A MARKER IN A GRAVEYARD OF MY PAST

THOUGH YOU'VE SLOWED DOWN, YET ON YOU GO.
IT'S ALL YOU'VE GOT, IT'S ALL YOU KNOW.
BREATHE IN THE FIRE DOWN BELOW.
WE'RE SINGING HER OUT.

SO I BORE MYSELF A NEW LIFE IN THE DUSTY DESERT AIR
WITH A GREEN EYED QUIET BEAUTY WHO WORE FLOWERS IN HER HAIR
AND A SMILE THAT ENDED HUNGER IN A GLANCE OR WITH A STARE
TOOK MY HAND, AND THEN MY HEART, BEFORE IT BROKE

LEFT THE POET TO HIS PAPER, AND SHE GAZED ON BRIGHTER STARS,
AND WHEN THEY BURNED OUT, SHE’D JUST WISH UPON THE BONES OF SHOOTING HEARTS
BUT I KNEW SHE REALLY LOVED ME ONCE, AND IT JUST TEARS ME APART
I’LL HAVE A COFFEE, ONE MORE CIGARETTE AND GO…

SO SHE JUST TURNED AND WALKED AWAY,
WITH ONLY VOLUMES LEFT TO SAY,
THOUGH O'ER YOUR HEART SHE STILL HOLDS SWAY,
WE'RE SINGING HER OUT...
Track Name: Dread Silence
DREAD SILENCE

WELL YOU FELL ON ME LIKE FURY, LIKE A RAPTOR TO HER PREY
I FELT YOUR TALONS DEEP, AND I SURRENDERED TO THE FREY
YOU DREW YOUR LIPS SO CLOSE AS IF TO WHISPER IN MY EAR
A SMILE CARESSED THE MOUTH HOLDING THE WORDS I LONGED TO HEAR

BUT OH…DREAD SILENCE FROM YOU
A LOW…DREAD SILENCE OVER YOU

WELL I LAURELED YOU WITH LOVE, I GAVE YOU TO MY HEART
AND ONCE YOU GOT THE KEYS, YOU STARTED TEARING IT APART
I SPUN YOU ‘ROUND TO FACE ME, STARING DEEP INTO THOSE EYES
IMPLORED YOUR SOUL TO TELL ME WHY IT’D GIVEN ONLY LIES
Track Name: Til The Anchor Breaks
TIL THE ANCHOR BREAKS

LET DOWN, EXED OUT…LOVE’S TRUE NORTH HEADED SOUTH
AND THESE SAILS, LONG TORN…FROM CHARTING MAPS NOW WORN
WAIT OUT, THIS STORM…THESE 4 CHORDS KEEP ME WARM
SANG OUT, STAYED TRUE…WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE?

SO I’LL WRITE A SONG FOR YOU TO SING ALONG,
ONE TO SING AFTER I’M GONE
ONE TO CHRONICLE THESE DAYS…
SO I’LL CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE IT DOESN’T BREAK
FLOWIN’ IN AND OUT WITH THESE WAVES
UNTIL THE ANCHOR BREAKS

SO DRINK UP, DON’T DROWN…THIS TOWN WILL LET YOU DOWN
SO DON’T PAWN YOUR CROWN…STAY LOST ON SOLID GROUND
FULL SPEED AHEAD…FULL SAIL, FOR ALL MUST END
SO LAST VERSE, LAST TRIP…WE’LL GO DOWN WITH THE SHIP
Track Name: Fade To Black
FADE TO BLACK

I’M LEAVING DUSK TO SUNRISE, THE DARKNESS TO THE DAWN
THE MORNING SUN BEHIND ME, CASTING SHADOWS ON THE LAWN
TONIGHT WE’RE LEAVING AUSTIN AS THE DAY…
THE DAY JUST FADES TO BLACK

WELL WE THOUGHT THE MUSIC SAVED US, BUT I’M NOT SURE THAT IT DID
‘CAUSE IT DOESN’T HOLD THE GLITTER THAT IT DID WHEN WE WERE KIDS
BUT THIS TIRED VAN KEEPS ROLLING ON AS OUR YOUTH..
ALL JUST FADES TO BLACK

WELL IT ALL GOES, IT JUST GOES TO SHOW
THAT YESTERDAY’S HEROES HAVE NOW JUST GOTTEN OLD
HOPE THIS CITY’S HANDS KEEP HOLDING US ALL CLOSE…
A FAVOR FOR THE BOLD…

SO AUSTIN KEEP ME YOUNG
FOR RACES STILL NOT RUN
FOR SONGS STILL LEFT UNSUNG
BEFORE WE FADE TO BLACK

LOOKED OUT ON ENDLESS OCEANS BLEEDING OUT THE DEEPEST BLUE
AND I’VE SEEN A THOUSAND RIVERS AND EVERY ONE, THEY LOOKED LIKE YOU
SO I’LL HOLD ONTO THESE DAYDREAMS OF YOU
BEFORE THEY FADE TO BLACK

WELL I FOUND MYSELF ON HIGHWAYS, TRAVELING EVERYWHERE ABROAD
LOST FAITH IN ME AS EASILY AS I LOST MY FAITH IN GOD,
YET NEVER FELT SO HOLY IN THE GLOW,
BEFORE IT FADES TO BLACK

NOW IT’S ALL GONE, NOTHING STAYS THE SAME
THE LEAVES KEEP CHANGING COLORS LIKE THE CHANGING OF OUR NAMES
SAY GOODBYE TO LAST NIGHT’S LOVERS, THE ONES YOU LEAVE BEHIND
IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU LOVE THEM, IT ONLY MATTERS IF YOU’RE KIND.
Track Name: Sudden Desperation
SUDDEN DESPERATION

SOUTHBOUND WITH NO DESTINATION
JUST A SPARK OF SUDDEN DESPERATION
AND FEELING LIKE I NEED TO BE ALONE

SO I’M OUT, GOT NO RESERVATION
NO PLAN FOR RETURN OR RESTORATION
JUST FEELING LIKE I NEED TO FUCKING GO…

BROKE DOWN WITH NO ACCOMMODATIONS
BROKE GROUND ON NEW ASPIRATIONS
GOT A FEELING LIKE I NEED TO BE ALONE

OUTGROWN BY MY GENERATION
GROWN OUT OF A SEA OF EXPECTATIONS
GOT A FEELING LIKE I NEED TO FUCKING GO…

AND WE CAN BUILD IT ALL UP, BURN IT ALL DOWN
BLAME IT ON ME, WELL I WON’T MIND

CAPSIZED BY LONELY EXPEDITIONS
NO HOME, JUST A SONG OF RESURRECTION
WRITE IT DOWN WITH SOME FRIENDS, OR YOU WRITE IT ALONE

RECTIFY A BAD SITUATION
CHANGE THE STRINGS ON A JOURNEY ‘CROSS THE OCEAN
WITH A FEELING LIKE I NEED TO FUCKING GO
Track Name: Saint Christopher
Saint Christopher

Verse 1:
When I got lost in Austin,
Torn asunder, left for dead.
My future grave as gallows,
My past a bloody red.
I ran into an ancient friend,
From two lives past before.
Who told me over whiskey,
That he too had run ashore.
So I inked an anchor on my arm
And drew blood for the sea.
We threw the dice into the wind,
Saint Christopher and me.
And where the dice they settled,
We didn’t care to see.
Tá sé in am éirí.

Over Horizon,
It stretches out as far as eye can see.
A firebird rising,
Well, that'll do for me.

Verse 2:
The Ship she sailed like nothing else
That we had seen before.
She was a gilded phoenix,
The Devil’s paramour.
But darkness veiled horizon
Hardly gave us time to think.
The blackest black of tempests roared
and She began to sink.
As tears diluted ocean
And hearts ruptured inside,
The bravest souls were waylaid
By the pull to break and hide.
And lone upon the shattered deck,
Saint Christopher and I
…Took the ride.

An ocean rising,
Its tireless waves have come to bury us at sea.
I close my eyes and listen to her breathe.

Verse 3:
The sky was black as polished jet,
The waves a salty sting.
The troughs a plunge straight down to hell,
The crests where angels sing.
And just about the time I thought
Our ship would fall apart,
Saint Christopher produced a pen,
And plunged it in his heart.
And O’er salt and wood and iron and steel
The blood did flow.
Its words commanding silence,
The violence overthrown.
And though the squall has left its scars
Etched deep into the bone…
On we go…

Over horizon,
That line we'll never cross yet always strive to meet.
A new reprise, Saint Christopher and me.
Track Name: Calluses
CALLUSES

WELL IT TOOK A POT OF COFFEE TO GET ME OUT OF BED,
AND A KISS FROM LAST NIGHT’S BOTTLE TO CLEAR YOU FROM MY HEAD
AND I FELT THE STORMCLOUD COMING AND MY HEART JUST FILLED WITH DREAD…OVER YOU

AND THE DROPS FELL IN THE SUNSHINE, AND WE BOTH JUST FELL LIKE RAIN,
AND THE DISTANCE IN BETWEEN US WAS A CHASM FILLED WITH BLAME
AS I STRUGGLE IN THIS SKIN, I KNOW I’LL NEVER BE THE SAME…WITHOUT YOU

CHORUS

SO I’M RECLAIMING CALLUSES WITH BIG HANDED CHORUSES
I’M SORRY IF I STUMBLE, I’VE BEEN BLEEDING IT ALL OUT
SO GOODBYE, ‘GOODBYE GIRL,’ HELLO WAITING WORLD
I’M SORRY IF I STAY GONE, BUT THIS HIGHWAY…JUST CALLED ME HOME

TRAVELED BACK AND FORTH ACROSS THE MAP, AND IT NEARLY LEFT ME DEAD
CONFRONTED BY THE QUIET, LEFT TO MOURN THE LOVE WE SHED
STILL SIFTING THROUGH THE ASHES OF THE THINGS I SHOULD HAVE SAID…TO YOU

WELL EVERYBODY STRUGGLES, AND EVERYBODY FALLS
AND I’LL CHERISH ALL THE MEMORIES, JUST LIKE PICTURES ON THE WALL
AND I’LL GATHER UP MY NERVE, BEFORE THE CURTAIN CALLS …FOR ME
Track Name: Erin Go Home
ERIN GO HOME

GONNA DRINK ‘TIL I FORGET YOU, ‘TIL ABSENCE FROM YOU HURTS,
I’LL FROLICK HERE WITHOUT YOU WITH THE FLIES, THE DRUNKS, AND FLIRTS
AND WHEN THE DRINK IS LONELY, AND I’VE NOWHERE LEFT TO ROAM
AND THE TENDER OF THE PUB BELTS OUT, “ERIN GO HOME!”

WELL YOU SCREAM OUT MY NAME
AND I’M THE MOTH TO YOUR FLAME
ROBBED OF FANCYFUL FLIGHTS TO THE BAR
AND AFTER CLIPPING THESE WINGS,
I ONLY YELL WHEN I SING,
AND THE SONG SOUNDS MORE LIKE A SCAR

WELL DO PARDON ME
BUT YOU’RE A SHIT TRAGEDY,
AND YOUR WINGS HAD BURNED OUT LONG BEFORE NOW,
IT WAS I WHO SANG THE SONGS,
AND ME, WHO KEPT YOU STRONG,
SO TONIGHT THIS GIRL IS PAINTING THE TOWN

WELL I’M CALLING UP THE BOYS,
AND I’M DRINKING WITH THE GIRLS
FIND A CLEAN SHIRT AND A BOTTLE,
A SHORT SKIRT AND MY PEARLS
TONIGHT I SING WITHOUT YOU,
TONIGHT I SING WITH FRIENDS,
UNTIL THE EVENING’S FINISHED,
UNTIL THE BITTER END…

GONNA DRINK ‘TIL I FORGET YOU, ‘TIL ABSENCE FROM YOU HURTS,
I’LL FROLICK HERE WITHOUT YOU WITH THE FLIES, THE DRUNKS, AND FLIRTS
AND WHEN THE DRINK IS LONELY, AND I’VE NOWHERE LEFT TO GO,
AND THE TENDER OF THE PUB BELTS OUT, “ERIN GO HOME!”

WELL ERIN GO HOME, LEAVE THIS POOR BOY ALONE,
YOU’RE THREE SHEETS TO FLOATING AWAY,
OR IF YOU BOTH PREFER, THERE’S THE DOOR BEHIND YOU SIR,
SOMEONE LEAVE, CAUSE BOTH OF YOU CAN’T STAY


WELL I’M WAITING FOR MY BOY,
AND I’M CALLING ON YOU GIRL
FIND A CLEAN SHIRT AND A BOTTLE,
A BLACK DRESS FOR THOSE PEARLS
TONIGHT WE’LL DANCE TOGETHER,
TONIGHT WE’LL TALK LIKE FRIENDS,
UNTIL FOREVER’S FINISHED,
UNTIL THE BITTER END…

SO WE DRINK ‘TIL WE REMEMBER, THAT ABSENCE FROM YOU HURTS,
THAT THIS HEART WAS NEVER FILLED AMONGST THE FLIES, THE DRUNKS, AND FLIRTS
SO WHEN THIS CUP IS EMPTY, I’VE GOT SOMEWHERE TO GO,
GONNA SETTLE UP THIS TAB, THEN ERIN’S GOING HOME!
Track Name: Settle Up Down The Road
SETTLE UP DOWN THE ROAD

YELLOW LINES FLY, MY HANDS ON THE STEERING WHEEL
BOUNDLESS SKIES ABOUND, FOREVER BLUE, FOREVER OVER
I’M WHERE I WANNA BE, SO FAR FROM MY HOME
I DRINK TO STAY IN TUNE, ALWAYS TRUE, BUT NEVER SOBER

SETTLE UP DOWN THE ROAD
FOR EYES OF BLUE AND THE GREEN OF CLOVER
IT’S THE ONLY THING I KNOW
YOU PLAY THE QUEEN, AND I’LL PLAY THE ROVER
SETTLE UP DOWN THE ROAD
I’M NOWHEREBOUND, AND I’M NOWHERE OVER YOU
SETTLE UP DOWN THE ROAD
TO YOU…

EERIE CRIES FROM HANDS ON A PEDAL STEEL
THE SADDEST NOTES, A SOBBING MELODY SO TRUE AND
IT’S ALMOST TIME AND I, TURN DOWN THE STEREO
STEP UNDERNEATH THE LIGHTS TO SING THESE SONGS, I WROTE FOR YOU

FAMILIAR SONG BEATS OUT, BY HANDS ON A STEERING WHEEL
AND WE ALL START TO SING ALONG...
