about

ATLAS was recorded with zebras for neighbors at a studio on the outskirts of Austin, TX, next door to an exotic African game reserve. Utterly uncompromising, the record is true rock ‘n’ roll. Featured on the album are a number of guest musicians, including a violinist, cellist, bassist, and harmonica player, who embrace Gypsy music with radiant vengeance. With analogue plate reverb and feedback crying like gulls, the album is an audiophile’s wet dream. Tory even plays a junk kit she built out of bike parts and Texas license plates. Their sound transcends categorization. Their live shows are full sensorial immersions. Sea At Last is music you feel; it is an honest explosion of two bold artists, unafraid to love, and unafraid to lose. An hour with the sea, at last, achieves timelessness.

Track Name: Silent Awake
Silent Awake
Lyrics by Sea At Last

silent awake, dawn to take
sleep the day, sleep
silent awake, dawn to take
sleep the day, sleep

they may take, all the ways
silent awake
it may take, all the days
silent awake

silent awake, dawn to take
meet me down by the road
silent awake, I walk this way
meet me down by the road

silent awake, dawn to take
sleep the day, sleep
silent awake, dawn to take
sleep the day, sleep

whisper your name, strike the window pane
I've got a story you wrote
whisper your name, strike the window pane
I've got a story you wrote
Track Name: On My Time
On My Time
Lyrics by Sea At Last

I've got a ways to go my friend
I've held your hand, told you when I'm leaving
she's got a heart of gold you know
covers it with winter snow, she's running
faster than a train wreck

it's on my time, I don't mind
'cause I'll find you
it's on my time, we'll unwind
when I find you

I've got a word to say to you
but I can not be half as true as when we're loving
the way animals do
she is brave and strong as nails
she'll take you where those windy sails wont follow
beyond the sunrise

she's on my time, I don't mind
'cause I'll find you
it's on my time, we'll unwind
when I find you

I've listened for all those subtle sounds
morning birds and all I've found is your shadow
pressed against my skin
she says the sea, I say the stars
higher I cry
you take me down to where you are
she says deeper

you're on my time, I don't mind
'cause I found you
yeah it's on my time, we'll unwind
'cause I found you
Track Name: Light Up The Night
Light Up The Night
Lyrics by Sea At Last

I want to see you break down
I want to see your feet hit the ground
oh, what a lovely sound

open a window so I can breathe
my lungs are begging so have some mercy
oh, you smell too sweet

your back is sweaty but my palms are dry
my car's out front, we could go for a ride
oh, we could light up the night

the world's on fire, it's a beautiful burn
no sense on stopping we just wait 'til your turn
oh, we could light up the night now
Track Name: Sleep Inside Thunder
Sleep Inside Thunder
Lyrics by Sea At Last

you can be my lover
I will build a home
when the storm it comes to take us
your hand in mine I'll hold
the moon will surely guide us
I can be your sun
when the rain is shelter given
our hearts can cry as one

the queen is born at midnight
the king is born at dawn
the moon she hides in twilight
while the sun sings his only song
of the morning we were lovers
before the worlds were made
though I've been known by others
by you my heart is tame

in the rage of death and wonder
the joy of all our light
there is a page in heaven's songbook
I write your name in blood tonight
because I sleep inside your thunder
I stand before your reign
though I've been known by others
by you, my heart is tame

you can be my lover
I will build a home
when the storm it comes to take us
your hand in mine I'll hold
Track Name: Mighty Flood
Mighty Flood
Lyrics by Sea At Last

lay me down upon the road
pull my hands over my throat

and the fall winds cry
and the bricks will die
and the thirst will come

sometimes it takes a cold river
to heal my wounds
let the water pull
the red fish moan
upon the dirt
upon the dirt

and we go down we go
little feet kickin from a single blow
and how we are
naked in the moon with a feather song
and down we go
stones in our pockets from the night before
and how we are
broken with a crown from the mighty flood

sew your seeds so carefully
plant your flowers in the weeds

and it's moving fast
to a dusty path
deep in my veins

sometimes it takes a cold river
to heal my wounds
let the water pull
the red fish moan
upon the dirt
upon the dirt

and we go down we go
little feet kickin from a single blow
and how we are
naked in the moon with a feather song
and down we go
stones in our pockets from the night before
and how we are
broken with a crown from the mighty flood

sometimes it takes a cold river
to heal my wounds
let the water pull
the red fish moan
upon the dirt
upon the dirt
Track Name: Golden Arrows
Golden Arrows
Lyrics by Sea At Last

with your golden arrows, you wound by your love
bruised by your anger, shot from above
with your eyes of fire, burning sky above
all my ashes silence come
oh my love
oh my love ....

laid at your alter, my tears turn to wine
bruised by your courage, killed by your side
with your eyes of fire, burning sky above
all my ashes silence come
oh my love
oh my love ....

torn by your mountain, the valley does cry
bruised by your anger, touched by your eye
oh my love
oh my love .....
Track Name: Bittersweet
Bittersweet Isolation
Lyrics by Sea At Last

this road I chose to walk upon
this road I chose
this road I chose, singing the only song

bittersweet isolation, bittersweet
bittersweet isolation, bittersweet

what I find, is only for the blind
and those who choose to be
what I find, comes from deep in my mind
and has eyes only for me

bittersweet isolation, bittersweet
bittersweet isolation, bittersweet

she waits for me with her golden teeth
and long dark hair, she waits
with her gold teeth and her long dark hair
oh she waits, she waits, for me

bittersweet isolation, bittersweet
bittersweet isolation, bittersweet
Track Name: The Cliff
The Cliff
Lyrics by Sea At Last

all within a little death he rose, he rose I know
all within the little one, hold time, hold time, out cold

the world bleeds so blue
like we had known
without a care
of all that we had...

a line of gold between two hearts a sun, a sun for sure
how he thought to hold it in, escape, escape the blow

with blood in his veins
while the night still remains
marked by the fall
from all that we had...

while he fought the warriors off a cliff, a cliff did rise
on a bed of velvet ice, he left, he left his eyes
Track Name: Atlas
Atlas/Sea
Lyrics by Sea At Last

sea
at last to sea
and the waves
get a hold of me

on all the shores I've loved the most
I found you there
I found you there
to swim by star the golden coast
I find you there
I find you there
the moon can count the days we lost
there is always time
always time
to be the one you fear the most
by my side
by my side

sea
at last to sea
and the waves
get a hold of me

sail away
come back round the other side
sail away
to me

sea
at last to sea
and the waves
get a hold of me
Track Name: The Fire
The Fire
Lyrics by Sea At Last

the sun it will set on the lies and regret
and your heart will be pure as a stone
though it crack and it split, you will still live with it
on the path walk towards the home

where you'll put the fire on and burn through the dawn
until you're as bright as the sky
when the night takes you in and the stars all rush in
in darkness you learn how to fly

I have loved you before you walked through the door
still I am watching those eyes
while the world around changes and we appear weightless
I have your heart on my mind

the wind carries it and my hands are open
to whatever it may become
we drink from the well and no one can tell
where we are going or coming from

the sun it will rise and I will look into those eyes
that sometimes appear as my own
we will spread out our wings and forget all these things
into your soul I will go

we will put the fire on and burn through the dawn
all of our love will grow
as the leaves on the trees, blown across the seven seas
moments as these we will come to know
