about

Fear & Fortune is Daniel's 2nd release and seeks to take up where Santa Elena left off. While keeping with the rootsy undertones of his first EP, Fear & Fortune makes subtle progress into other textures and sounds to create a slightly more lush soundscape. Produced by Sebastian Rogers, engineered by Ian Watts (The Magic Closet, Portland OR).

Track Name: Effigy
Looking like a song in a dress, halo coming down from a street light
Begging for the city's caress, meet me at a quarter to midnight
We're gonna throw away the goods and the evils and let the apathetic awake
In the shadows of the neon cathedrals, Im gonna let you tie me up on a stake

Come on make me feel it, you got my whole heart burning in effigy
Come on give me one good look, let me cry my eyes in
Come on make me feel it, and may the flames pass over the best of me
Come on let the ash pile up and tomorrow begin

Listen to the clock tick, feeling like a heretic, living all my life in a straight line
I hear the picture in the polished glass talkin to me, now I turn the other cheek for the last time
and maybe one day they're gonna share my name with the members of the congregation
'Cause when the wind picks up we're gonna go for a ride, scattered to the edge of creation

May the ropes we burn here never be replaced
May we cast ourselves into the flow of grace

Come on make me feel it

Come on make me feel it, you got my whole heart burning in effigy
Come on give me one good look, let me cry my eyes in
Come on make me feel it, and may the flames pass over the best of me
Come on let the ash pile up and tomorrow begin

Come on make me feel it
Come on make me feel it
Track Name: Fear & Fortune
Here comes the day
Spread out like a shotgun
Its lost its shine before it ever had one
So pack your things
I wanna show you how the asphalt sings when you let go
We're on the move now

I get that feeling that you don't wanna go at all
Screaming at the the top your lungs and tearing maps off the wall
So bear your teeth, but I know everything thats Underneath, come on and let go
Baby you're the only truth I know

All around us, change explodes
Will we live to see what grows
Fear and fortune ebbs and flows
Get down, its gonna blow

Here comes the night
Quiet as a funeral
Until we get tired testing wills
So cool your jets
And let me show you how a heart forgets when it lets go

All around us, change explodes
Will we live to see what grows
Fear and fortune ebbs and flows
Get down, its gonna blow

I love watching you sleep it off
Like you drank too much of us
Don't you know that I'll still be there when
The fuse is smoldering

All around us, change explodes
Will we live to see what grows
Fear and fortune ebbs and flows
Get down, its gonna blow
Track Name: The Equivocal Justice of Vail Ennis
Oh Vail, Oh Vail won't you let them boys go?
There's a mother crying somewhere up in San Antonio
I know that star you wear leads those people to their king
But it don't sound like angels when that Colt begins to sing

Long ago he stopped asking the question, of why some people do the things they do
Consequence had chosen him to satisfy its every whim, it was all a plan that much he knew
Moses he went up on to that mountain, now Vail can send a man down with his draw
It was only fair and just that all those made of ash and dust, heeded his commandments of the law

Oh Vail, Oh Vail won't you let them boys go?
There's a mother crying somewhere up in San Antonio
I know that star you wear leads those people to their king
But it don't sound like angels when that Colt begins to sing

And Vail said
"I got 6 in this revolver here, for anyone without the fear of waking up tomorrow full of lead"
"And I got 4 more in my Tommy, gonna end up in you son, you don't come out with your hands above your head"

Oh Vail, Oh Vail won't you let them boys go?
There's a mother crying somewhere up in San Antonio
I know that star you wear leads those people to their king
But it don't sound like angels when that Colt begins to sing

As soon as Vail had called it out, the answer from inside the house found its way inside him, burning hot
And so onto his knees he fell, the jagged blade of God himself, left out in that Pettus dirt to rot
This is the gift you've been given, this is the work you've received
This is the truth you must know in yourself
Rise or submit, its your choice, came a voice

Covered head to foot in red and silver, he came up behind the older of the two
Nothing ever looked quite like, the way his eyes gave up their light, when he saw a dead man in the room
And he screamed "God ain't changed his ways since Noah built that boat, its just that now he uses bullets 'stead of floods"

Oh Vail, Oh Vail you can't let them boys go
There's a mother crying softly up in San Antonio
I know that star you wear lead those people to their king
But it don't sound like like angels when that Colt begins to sing
Track Name: The One You Need
Why do I feel, next to you
Like you're the only one I'd ever hold on to
When all I do, is fill the space
Of a handsome man to come and take my place

Let me be, The one you need

Oh my love, I'd pull you from the deep
It's what wakes me up
And what gets me to sleep
And I rest easy in your bed
'Cause lying down there ain't no place to hang my head

Baby be try, one more time
Let me be, the one you need

And if you learn to trust again
There will always be someone to take you in
And by your choice, love I'll abide
And until then, I will never leave your side

Baby try, just one more time
Let me be, the one you need
