Composed by Ric Albano on June 27, 2020
From the album Out There Somewhere by Ric Albano
Released October 24, 2020
Listen to the Song:
This defacto title song is the most complicated and lengthy track (at nearly 7 minutes long) on Out There Somewhere. It has seven distinct sections that repeat during a very long and complex journey which frequently returns to the main theme of ‘truth” and the infinite search to find it unmolested.
The song is built musically on an acoustic guitar and embellished by three distinct electric guitars along with a steady but complex rhythm section.
Ric Albano – vocals, guitars, bass, drums
Tune up all the turbines of your will now, the upcoming journey is hard
Who will speak up for you as you’re maligned? Who will assume that vanguard?
The surprise situations changed that game that you regard
Well, now’s the time to prove what you are made of,
Will you persist through these scars?
Refine the engines of your courage, this upcoming year may be rough
Competently seeing things through a real lens, while stripping the core of all fluff
And less and less will have your back once it endangers their own stuff
Now’s the time to prove what you are made of, is the crux of your nature enough?
The truth is out there somewhere, not to be subjectively read
Clandestine as it might be, there is wisdom in its stead
The poison of deception, can not persist through time
‘Cause the truth is out there somewhere, credible, pure, refined
Growing tired of demoralization as axioms shift almost by the day
And those distorted tales of the imagination can’t forever hold such sway –
So I will not give to the diffusion of lies, nor exist perpetually petrified
I’ll break out of that sad groove, plan my return back to the truth
To lift an authentic weight and carry it as far as its fate
There is a way past this mire, an escape from a fate that is dire
Stoke the blue flames of the fire beyond basic desire, woh oh, woh oh, woh oh
The warring parties methods always use means towards an end
But the truth is out there somewhere, no matter foe or friend
Growing weary of the situation, a newspeak edition coming every day
With no sympathy for an imagination, the tyranny won’t forever hold this sway
And with just some truth to break these spurious creations,
And really show the world that there is a better way
We can spread it through a rapid conflagration
Into a better way, into a truly better day
Build a brand new shield for your will now, keep those detractors at bay
Now’s the time to prove what you are made of, this journey will happen come what may
The inclinations of some game will not dictate who’s brave
Now’s the time to show some real courage, the truth is out there to be saved
