about

Dan Socha is back with his first CD in 7 years, featuring a full sound with a revolving cast of players that more accurately depicts his energetic live show than any recording so far.
A message from Dan:
"A long long time ago, I wrote a bunch of songs and recorded them in Wes’s garage. Since then, new songs have been born and old songs have been born again. With the help of some very talented friends, we’ve recorded this hodgepodge of tunes to share with anyone and everyone. Thanks to everyone who helped create and inspire this CD, especially to my dog Riley, who helped write the song Other People."

Track Name: Other People
There was a time I was alone when you left me out in the street oh
You wouldn’t let me back into your house with all of your people
And I begged and I howled and I scratched and I screamed, oh me oh
I walked away from your place with my tail tucked between my knees oh

And you know that I always come back to your arms
And I run round in circles for your warmth and your charm
But this time I must be going, this one’s no false alarm
I’m gonna go find some other people

When I came in late last night and you caught me there in the doorway
And from the look on my face, you could tell I’d been up to no good
And I promise I swear I was only out in the yard
You wouldn’t let me back into your bed with my muddy paws

And you know that I always come back to your arms
And I run round in circles for your warmth and your charm
But this time I must be goin’, this one’s no false alarm
I’m gonna go find some other people

I don’t know why I’m always wrong dear
Can’t figure out why you don’t answer when I call
I don’t know why I always find myself here
Can’t figure out why you’ve been treating me wrong

And you know that I always come back to your arms
And I run round in circles for your warmth and your charm
But this time I must be goin’, this one’s no false alarm
I’m gonna go find some other people
Track Name: Waiting
Lost little girls with that look in their eyes, they’re goin’ down
Scared little boys with that fear in their eyes, they’re gonna drown
And the waters getting’ higher, and the waves gonna come up and swallow you whole

I know that you’d been waitin’
I know that you’d been waitin’
I know that you’d been waitin’
Through this all before

We’d been dancin’ round each other
And I never thought I’d ever let you go
Sneaking around one another
Dig your grave, dig your own fucking hold
You told me you had seen nothing, you told me it was hardly anything at all

I know that you’d been waitin’
I know that you’d been waitin’
I know that you’d been waitin’
Through this all before

You told me you had seen nothing, you told me it was hardly anything at all
Track Name: Smoke And Fear
I don’t get high anymore
Lately dear I have felt so low
Hidden away, stuck behind this barroom wall
I can’t escape and I can’t be saved
But my lungs are filling up with this smoke and fear
And I don’t wanna lay here any longer
Trouble found its way, and I met her at the backdoor
And I can’t take the weight that you’re under

And I can’t hold on anymore
This love has come and gone, now you treat me like a child
The rain pitter patters on the awning
Soon it’ll be another year

But my lungs are filling up with this smoke and fear
And I don’t wanna lay here any longer
Trouble found its way, and I met him at the backdoor
And I can’t take the weight that you’re under

And my brother, showed me that the devil
Works in so many mysterious ways
And lately, I can’t fight off my demons
So I join em’ for the good old days

But my lungs are filling up with this smoke and fear
And I don’t wanna lay here any longer
Trouble found its way, and I let her in the backdoor
And I can’t take the weight that you’re under

I don’t get high anymore
Lately dear, I have felt so low
Swallowed up, spread thin between these other calls
Hoping one day, we’ll get old
And I don’t get high anymore
Track Name: Heartache
Livin’ with your heartache - Talkin’ to the broken
Waiting for the mornin’ - Then you’ll run
And you’re holdin’ onto nothing – and you’re letting go the old fight
And you never found no new fight – to ease your troubled mind

On your own, you’ll be found
Drunk and stoned, and you can’t turn around
You're almost home, and your friends not around
On your own, on your own

And you swear you’ll catch the next one – leaving here at 9 o clock
You’d promise that you’d never stop – but you’re home the next damn day
And you’re hangin’ in the basement – and you’re hangin’ with your old friends
And you never found no new friends – to spend your days away

On your own, you’ll be found
Drunk and stoned, and you can’t turn around
You're almost home, and your friend's not around
On your own, on your own

And you’re lettin’ my lips quiver – they’re hangin’ in gallows
Oh the death that your love put me in – things’ll never be the same

On your own, you’ll be found
Drunk and stoned, and you can’t turn around
You're almost home, and your friend's not around
On your own, on your own
Track Name: Pockets
And I can’t stand it, these numbers and figures
Tryin’ to find some new phrases, to figure it all out
No expectations, about the future
Become a predictor, just to be let down

And I just can’t seem to stand straight in line
Hands in my pockets on quarters and dimes
It’s time to grow up now, come rain or come shine
I don’t wanna make up my mind

Drivin’ in circles, for no fuckin reason
Tired of believing, it’ll all work out
Spendin’ like crazy, blame it on money
Fragile and hasty, it’s been holdin’ me down

And I just can’t seem to stand straight in line
Hands in my pockets on quarters and dimes
It’s time to grow up now, come rain or come shine
I don’t wanna make up my mind
Track Name: Snowfall
Somewhere, you'll find the pine shed ground beneath the snow
Somewhere, are the ashes of the last branch where we used to
Swing low, from the high limb of the tree to the forest floor that's
Below, the darkened sky where we would count the bright bright star light
While we laid on the ground through the cold of the night.

So run away, and run away
And we'll meet on the other side of the wall
Where the doorways are very narrow and small.
And i'll be sure you're not the first one to fall...fall into my arms

Chuckin rocks at the street lights
While we subdued to the earth but not to the health of the
Car tires, and the sound of the spinning while our hearts were on fire, and the
Tip toes, because three in the morning well it never goes
It never goes

So run away, and run away..
And we'll meet on the other side of the wall
Where the doorways are very narrow and small
And i'll be sure you're not the first one to fall...fall into my arms

Don't you know when the
Wind blows, on your pretty face in the morning right after the snow falls down
Right after the snow falls down
Right after the snow falls
Track Name: Miserable Escape
Come home, come home now
Your mother’s been crying for days and days
Your brothers and sisters are runnin wild
Runnin wild in the world’s wild race

Oh and pack your bags and go
Don’t wanna be here anymore
When the sun rise
And it streams upon your face
And lets you go

And you were runnin’ through my day dreams
But also in my nightmares, late in bed
And do you remember the places where we grew up
In that shitty little house your parents had way back when

Don’t wanna sleep here anymore
Not gonna wake up in the middle of the nighttime
Driven wild by your face
For the last time

And it’s a miserable escape
When you’ve gotta run but you don’t know, where to run to
And it’s a miserable escape
After being locked up for all these years
