about

The New Schematics Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville’s The New Schematics spent their first 15 months as a band proving that the Born Without Borders Tour was indeed the right name for their tour that spanned 97 shows in 42 cities across the US and Canada. It is no wonder as to why they’ve gained the reputation as a live act with “the crowd control skills of preachers” (Cougar Microbes) whose “passion for their art is palpable” (Valslist). ... more

Track Name: Your Year
The ball drops in New York City
And the slate's wiped clean again
Necks crane, champagne
In a shivering sea of shimmering sequin
It's a mad parade, a masquerade
Of failure, hope and sin
And I’m standing at the heart of it

CHORUS:
Waiting on love to come around
Everybody feels a little lost,
Why can't I feel a little found?
Waiting for a sign cut crystal clear
Lady Liberty, or Lady Luck lean in and whisper in my ear
"This is gonna be your year"

I got a new notebook for Christmas
Prayers and resolutions in my pen
No shame, gonna name
Every demon in me, a revolution underneath my skin
It's a promenade, a motorcade
Of every man I've ever been
And I'm waving at the front of it

CHORUS

I hear my name like sirens cut the silence in the dead of night
I'm changing all my ways and holding fast to the morning light
Every rundown ghost letting go of my memory
Lift me up, set my feet upon the rock and set me free

When the dust begins to settle, and the seasons come and go
Things change, life's strange
I'm feeling like a matador running at a bull
An avalanche cascade, a dream decayed
But I got a hand I'll never fold
Cause this year’s gonna be different

Waiting on love to come around
Everybody feels a little lost,
Why can't I feel a little found?
Waiting for a sign cut crystal clear
Lady Liberty, or Lady Luck anybody lean in and whisper in my ear
"This is gonna be your year"
Track Name: All of My Desire
Maybe it's the full moon or the crisp autumn air
I wanna change my name again and shave off all my hair
Could be the bourbon in my blood or the sleep that I don't get
Baby teach me to forgive and I can teach you to forget
I’m stuck here howling at the moon (Let me go, let me go)
Til the sun comes up and I can talk to you (Let me know, let me know)

My eyes may wander,
I may play with fire
But you have, you have, you have
all of my desire

I can tell you you’ve been burned before but babe you’re not alone
I’ve got debts, I’m still paying for; sins I can’t atone
It's in the water that I drink, or the prayers that I don't pray
I can teach you how to leave if you can teach me how to stay
I'm stuck here staring in the mirror (What to do what to do)
Nothing true is ever clear
I want you

My eyes may wander, I may play with fire
But you have, you have, you have all of my desire
Though my mind gets restless, and my feet get tired
You have, you have, you have
all my of my desire

Deep beneath my callouses
Well beyond my walls
I want all the madness of your fractured heart
the failures, fears and flaws

My eyes may wander, I may play with fire
But you have, you have, you have all of my desire
My mind is restless, And my heart gets tired
You have, you have, you have all my of my desire

My night are sleepless, I may play with fire
You have you have you have all of my desire
Though my mind is wild And I walk that wire
you have you have you have all of my desire
you have you have you have all of my desire
you have you have you have all of my desire
Track Name: Sunday Morning
I’m not perfect
Except for in my mother’s eyes
But one day she’ll realize
who I am

I am a sinner
I’ve lived for women and for whiskey
And the God who lives within me
When I can

I’ve got potential
It is a blessing and a curse
I could do better, I’ve done worse
Than I am

It’s Sunday Morning and I’m in between towns
Long white lines will lead my home
This road is unlike any church I’ve ever found
Jesus let me, Jesus let me go

I’m always searching
Searching high and searching low
From the spirit to the bone
For myself

I am broken
And always begging for a fix
The flame is swallowing the wick
In my soul

It’s Sunday Morning and I’m in between towns
Let the sunrise lead my home
This skyline unlike any church I’ve ever found
Jesus let me, Jesus let me go

I’m getting closer
I know redemptions gonna come
I can taste it on the tip
Of my togue

It’s Sunday Morning and I’m in between towns
Let this full tank take me home
This bus is unlike any church I’ve ever found
Jesus let me, Jesus let me...

It’s Sunday Morning and I’m in between towns
Loneliness will lead my home
This life is unlike any church I’ve ever found
Jesus let me,
Lord don’t let me
Jesus let me
Lord don’t let me go
Track Name: Take Back My Soul
Nobody wants to be alone
Yeah, but nobody talks anymore
I make a late night cold call home
But I’m not sure what for.
Maybe I’ll join the circus,
maybe I’ll sell my soul
I think I’ll move to Paris
or chase down that girl in San Francisco

I could run,
I could take the next flight anywhere,
I could walk away real slow,
Or dig a little deeper and take back my soul

I’m always looking for an angle
In the space between wrong and right
I’m always begging for an angel
Plenty of battles, just not enough fight
Maybe I’ll join a choir,
maybe I’ll sing “Amazing Grace”
I think I’ll start a fire,
just outside of Heaven’s gates

I could run,
I could take the next flight anywhere,
I could walk away real slow,
Or dig a little deeper and take back my soul

No matter where I go, I’m still gonna be there
So maybe if I wanna grow, I should learn to be here...

Not gonna run,
Not gonna take the next flight anywhere,
Not gonna walk away at all,
I’m gonna dig a little deeper and take back my soul
Track Name: Timeless Love
I'm a wildcard, a Jack of hearts,
I’m the Joker of the pack.
You got that magic touch baby
and you're cutting me in half
I need an anchor or an angel,
a copy of St. Peter's key
You're my sweet sweet taste of Eden
in the deep deep calloused East

It wasn't supposed to be this good,
history said it never could

We've got timeless love, can't count the seconds babe
Timeless love, the days just slip away

I used to run like the Nile,
I used to scatter like the wind
But now I'm standing still for you baby,
like the lakes up in Michigan
You're a cannonball buried in my rubble,
you're a healer in disguise
You're a whole new breed of trouble,
the kind they don't advertise

I've got ghosts hiding between the sheets,
but they don't scare you so they don't scare me

We’ve got timeless love, It's never gonna fade
Timeless love, we got time to waste

Like Mona Lisa's sheepish grin,
the Sistine ceiling's permanence,
a newborn innocence...
time moves fast, time moves slow,
time doesn't move at all

Timeless love, an institution babe
We keep spinning circles around the sun but our love just doesn't age
Timeless love, We don't have to wait
Cause with Timeless love, time is ours to take
Time is ours to take
Time is ours to take
Time is ours to take
