about

"Ashes And Lies" includes five unreleased songs by indie gods Benton Falls, an incredible cover of "Angel On Hiatus" featuring labelmates Clair De Lune, plus 2 unreleased demo songs (can only be heard after download). Frontman Michael Richardson's glistening voice and penetrating, poetic lyrics result in masterful narratives about frustration, struggle, uncertainty and inevitability. Benton Falls is like dusk in autumn…that intangible moment when we're grasping for those last few seconds of vanishing daylight. The moment when the sun warms the sky and our skin with lustrous tones of orange and red, and the deep blue of night creeps up from behind us. These are the ashes and lies. Artwork by Michael Stew. (DER-521)

Track Name: Occupied For Now
with the time that you have spent. wondering where the time went. you could have done something more. than just hiding behind closed doors. these walls weren't built by hand. complex patterns. you may never understand. flashing yellow lights. late at night just might scare you
Track Name: Hold Out
let's make sure i've got this right. where did i spend the night? where did i leave my boots? let's make sure i'm kissing the right girl goodbye tonight. and all this time. the lights should have gone. let's make sure i've got this right. before i kiss you tonight. and hold out. and hold out. and hold out. and hold out. the truck's parked in the back. so passerbys won't see. my luck's run out. the truck's been stolen.
Track Name: Tell Him
if you wait by the side of the road. then i will pick you up. if you stay and wait for me. in my baby blue ford i will be there at two in the 'morn. but don't tell your dad because I've never had such a tale to tell. tell him something else. tell him your away. tell him anything. tell him your at julie's. tell him your away. tell him anything. tell him your at julie's. so give him the number to call if he's scared. give him the number to call if he cares. give him the number to call if he's scared. and give him the number to call if he cares. if you wait by the side of the road. then you will be disappointed. if you stayand wait for me. in my baby blue ford i ain't comin' round your house no more. so go tell your dad because i've never had such a tale to tell you. tell him we are through (because that's what he wanted).
Track Name: These Lies
it's time for change. let's rearrange what people believe. let's cloud their thoughts with terrorist plots upon the tv screens. i think this is starting to work. your politics don't make much sense. unless you own a gun. when i talk i'm talking out my ass. heretics and charlatans they may know a thing or two. when i talk i'm talking out my ass. i can't stand upon these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies. disgusted. defeated. i'm feeling cheated. does anyone else? my education was a joke and it's not funny. i swear i'm not alone. i think this is starting to work. your politics don't make much sense. unless you own a gun. when i talk i'm talking out my ass. heretics and charlatans they may know a thing or two. when i talk i'm talking out my ass. i can't stand for all of these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies. i can't stand for all of these lies.
Track Name: Zinfandel Dream
timing is everything. even if it makes you scream. i'm reminded of everything. even as i sleep. let you dream. the ground i know it clears. the summer's not long off. and as months go by like minutes. even time's got its limits. you speed through everything. you would chase, then spin and run. you will feel it again. anything. relax for a while because i'm going to look for one smile. and everything will be fine
Track Name: Angel On Hiatus (feat. Clair De Lune)
it's come to this i swear this time my heart won't miss i've clinched these fists for far too long a broken house with gates made from broken promises but nobody's home so here i sit it's the light that wakes me but the time that breaks me down like water drops, why won't this stop dripping on my halo these angel wings of mine they haven't seen the light in weeks let alone fly it's the light that wakes me but the time that breaks me down like water drops, why won't this stop it's got me down and who's gonna save me from falling to the ground you might as well finish me grab with both hands and rip out these wings now watch me fall
