about

The Swinging Field was a high school band from Apalachin/Vestal, NY from 2004-2006. We wrote these songs together and played some pretty cool shows for high schoolers. We could never decide whether to be a hardcore band or a pop rock band, so we did both. Which I would not advise one to do without careful deliberation!

Track Name: Brandy for the Dreamer and the Pilgrim
So it took a while to figure out
I'm wrong in believing every word I say
Five-thousand miles, oh,
That's what it takes to get it straight
The haze lifts from these alleyways
On the break of every day
And It crawls back to where it began
And I'm right where I began

So what's it gonna be when we get home
Put our hearts out on the dirt floor
Such a different world from mine
Now I cherish everything I own
And when the children scream, they scream:
HALLELUJAH!
Oh, life is in the children
And love is their disease

So what's a letter without words?
Or a song without a story
Like the leaves of fall succumb to winter
And these memories will fade
To a bigger picture which
I'll place into a frame
We'll make a final decision
To let it burn
Or let it reign

So what's it gonna be when we get home
Put our hearts out on the dirt floor
Such a different world from mine
Now I cherish everything I own
And when the children scream, they scream:
HALLELUJAH!
Oh, life is in the children
And love is their disease

I'll wait one more day
To take my flight back home
I'll wait one more day

So what's it gonna be when we get home
Put our hearts out on the dirt floor
Such a different world from mine
Now I cherish everything I own
And when the children scream, they scream:
HALLELUJAH!
Oh, life is in the children
And love is their disease
Track Name: Ichtyophobia
Swinging out of line
She's there to kick you when you're...
Down!
Her name is like poison on my lips

She always said she said,
She always said, she said.

I'll meet you after the show
Wanna go to my place of one of your friends?
We'll dance the night away
Like we danced on stage
No need to keep track of time
Or mistakes we're about to make

Well I'm wrong, I'm wrong!
In giving you the best of me!

Persistance lays the blame
I want you to die slow
But woah!
I fall for it every time

I'll write a letter
And be choosing of my words

To whom that it may concern
I regret to inform you of my untimely death
Unexpectedly, I jumped ship
And drowned in the sea of your painful memories

Well I'm wrong, I'm wrong!
In giving you the best of me!
Track Name: Much Obliged
Serving sounds of hope on silver platters
On the streets of foreign cities, we walk
I'll tell you the truths to break your lies
I'll show you the door that opens your eyes

Fare thee well
I'm much obliged
Thanks for showing me all about myself
Oh, when we meet again
That's a beautiful day
In paradise

All the times that I walked through the fire
This one's the most I've ever been burnt
I'm gonna walk away from this one
I'm gonna run with the scars to show you


(Freedom reigns)
Freedom
Comes at a cost you'll never know

Oh these beautiful scars
I can see it now
I can see the light

Fare thee well
I'm much obliged
Thanks for showing me all about myself
Yeah, when we meet again
Oh, it's gonna be a beautiful day
In paradise

Paradise.
Track Name: 'Til Dusk Do Us Part
Long drives
To middle of the north
Short drives
To the places I'll always find you
Heartbeat
I wear my heart on my sleeve
My heart beats
You're doing the same
As we play the blame game
Figure out how we have come together
I don't wanna go back to her arms
You don't wanna go back to the
Nightmare you've been livin' in
Let's hit the state line
And go back again

We'll pray for a new beginning
My eyes focus on a new shade
The prettiest shade of blue

Lose all
Your wildest fears
Lose all
Your inhibitions
'Cause you're everything I wanted
Maybe that's just what I've been so afraid of
So let's pray these scars will heal up
Drop your guard, let's fall in love
We'll stash those photographs
In the frames with someone worthy of my eyes

We'll start a new beginning
My eyes focus on a new shade
A most beautiful shade of blue

I swear I'll be better than the last time

So it goes to show
You're what I need
So it goes to show
You're all I've ever needed

Let's try this thing called "love"

I swear I'll be better than the last time
Track Name: On The Tops Of Arches
On this road
I'm walking in the footseps
Made by the ones who've gone
Before me
And they drive themselves
These feet are far too fragile
To ever make it on my own
Now I'm on my knees
I'm begging please

Where have you been
(When I needed you you weren't there)
When I needed you the most?
(You were never there)

On this road
Behind me has been the story of my life
It's littered with stuff that remains
Of broken hearts and broken bottles
This world has made it far too hard to
Make it on my own
Now I lay in wait
God, take it away

Where have you been
(When I needed you you weren't there)
When I needed you the most?
(You were never there)

And your name is barely a memory
Just like the dreams you thought you had
And the blind man keeps his head up so high
As he marvels at the beauty of his own face
And your tears they never run so dry
I can see us at the end of the road
You're wondering
Wondering where you've been

Where have you been
(When I needed you you weren't there)
When I needed you the most?
(You were never there)
Track Name: Conversaciones con Cielo y Infierno
To set this story straight
I've always known your name
Despite the doubts I've had
You've given me all I am
Now I'm faced with the choice
To bleed or live again
With faith like a mustard seed
I get to see your face

If I
Ever made
A right decision in my life
This would be it
This ain't the first time
I've fallen

And I run into your arms
Yeah I run back to you

And I surrender to your love
I'm open wide
Those nails will fit just fine
I hope I fare it as well as he

I've given all I got
But what I got is to repent
Drugged up in confidence
This is me, it's what I am
I thank you for
Every breath in my body
I inhale, and I exhale, and I'm alive
I'm alive, good God I can breathe

If I
Ever made
A right decision in my life
I'll try to hold on
But this broken man can't
Reach much higher

And I run into your arms
Yeah I run back to you

And I surrender to your love
I'm open wide
Those nails will fit just fine
I hope I fare it as well as he

And what I got
They'll never take away
(Something's coming)

What I got they won't take away
What I got they won't touch anymore
What I got you'll never find

You're a liar
(Something's coming)
You're a liar

What I got they won't take away
What I got you can't take away
Oh that devil's got ahold
I've got some help from above

You're a liar
(Something's coming)
You're a liar
Track Name: North By Northwest
Bed-ridden sleepless nights
It's cold, you're cold
Your eyes they see me through
The dark
Where can I go to escape
From you
There's no place that I can escape
From you

So I try to cover up your eyes
But they follow me around
Staring at the ground
But this is home and it's everything I hated
What a shame, it's faded
You're what I'd trade it for

Bed-ridden sleepless nights
It's cold, you're cold
Your eyes they see me through
The dark
I swear that I will never escape
From you
There's no way that I can escape
From you

So I try to cover up your eyes
But they follow me around
Staring at the ground
But this is home and it's everything I hated
What a shame, it's faded
You're what I'd trade it for

Your photograph's face down
I can still feel the gaze

It's not where we left it
You're not where I wanna be
You're not where I want to be
Oh, baby, show me

Show me what you're worth
What you're worth
And I'm gone

So I try to cover up your eyes
But they follow me around
Staring at the ground
But this is home and it's everything I hated
What a shame, it's faded
You're what I'd trade it for

But you say it's over so soon
I regret every word I ever said
From the way it seems
It was over so soon
From the way it seems
I was over so soon.
Track Name: les Girls! les Limbs!
Back seat queen always make her mark

Praise you
Your royal mistress
Who's lies pass for love
My imagination
Has made you
Track Name: She Stepped Out, But She Wasn't Flying
I watch the stars come out with you
We sat and watched the moon fly
My time here is such a precious thing
It's only the best, it's only the best

Brain
Where's your heart at tonight?
Brain
Now where's your soul?
I'll show you my deepest desires
Brain
Where's your soul?

We made the most of heartache
Be buried all regrets
I watch the stars come out with you
And you're only the best, but it's only the best

Brain
Where's your heart at tonight?
Brain
Now where's your soul?
I'll show you my deepest desires
Brain
Where's your soul?

When you move I'll follow you
Wherever you go

And I'll go
To the end of the world
