Ballad of Lucky Jack (w. wright) written in homage to Patrick O'Brian and his Master and Commander Series
Ballad of Lucky Jack - Lyrics
Verse i
They sailed out of Port Mahon
A hundred ninety souls on board
Through the gates of Hercules
Past the line called Capricorn

Verse ii
Four and Sixty guns on board
Thrown' 18 pounds of steel
Lucky Jack was at the helm
A steady ship from mast to keel

Chorus i
I thought that I could really
Understand
The kinds of danger present
Far from land

But sixteen stone o' courage is what
Made of Lucky Jack a lucky man

Verse iii
Encountered we the Belvidere
-A Giant French-built man o’ war
They were out to sink us
-We tried to flee the savage roar

Verse iv
We tried to slip the Belvidere
-But Every dawn it reappeared
Like an evil spirit
-It read our minds and spread the fear

Chorus ii
I thought that I could really
Understand
The kinds of danger present
Far from land
Life is a secret that
Reveals......

Extended Chorus
Seven layers to comprehend
A broken heart that’s trying to mend
A word that’s always in the way
A mind that really wants to stay (repeat)

Guitar and violin leads over Extended Chorus

Interlude

Verse v
We finally had to turn and fight
=-And face our destiny
And smoke and fire filled the sky
=-Amidst an angry sea

Verse vi
The Belvidere she finally struck
=When her mainmast broke in two.
We boarded her and took the prize
=From the captain and the crew.

Chorus ii
I thought that I could really
Understand
The kinds of danger present
Far from land
Life is a secret that
Reveals......

Extended Chorus
Seven layers to comprehend
A broken heart that’s trying to mend
A word that’s always in the way
A mind that really wants to stay

Conventional Thought - Lyrics
verse i
invention, convection
conventional thought skews the
matrix, the matrix, the
mother you sought

into the vortex of fantasyland
need to hold her hand

you're trying to reach her
and reach her you must

the matter, the mother just
turns into dust

you want to stay, but the
wheel just keeps on turning

verse ii
an essence, quintessence
quiescence so still
the turning and torment
are tuning your will

searching for bliss in the fog of remorse
dealing with the source

incessant, relentless,
repentant misgivings

countless, collusive,
collective relivings

chorus
torpor drags and
your frozen

the spirit begs
but you're chosen

you want to stay but the
wheel just keeps on
turning (how can you justify it)
turning (you know you can't defy it)
you want to stay but the
wheel just keeps on keeps on keeps on
turning

Flight of Mystery - Lyrics
Intro (1 verse)
Verse I
Metal ions sear my mind
As we near the port
Shattered dreams fly apart
In this town of last resort
I think I hear you calling me
But it can't be true
You disappeared a while ago
Into ultra, ultra violet blue – hey!

Chorus a
Someone had to point the way to freedom
Most of us decided to remain
You took flight into mystery
And showed us the way –
the way out of pain

Is this now the final destination
Is there nothing more that we attain
You took flight into mystery
And showed us the way –
the way out of pain

add after 2nd and 3rd times only
(it's all in your mind
You know it's insane
A true double bind)
Verse 2
Artificial gravity
Pulls us to the right
Plasma storms reek havoc
And delay the flight
I think I hear you telling me
That you want to stay
Yet you knew our fate was tied
To what you did that day – hey!

Chorus

Chorus b
All this time
I was pretending to
Not be afraid of the dark
All this time
I was intending to
Show you how fire begins with a spark

All this time
I just imagined that
I was the one with the key

Now it's time
For you to show us the
Room that leads us out of here
and dissipates our fear (1st time)
and (the room that) dissipates our fear (2nd time)

You to journey on your flight of

On and On - Lyrics
Verse i
I took a chance and I
split the town
the wind was calling my name

Verse ii
the time was right and it
all went down
there was no one to blame

Chorus i
strange as it sounds
I was peaceful
knowing that it was alright
knowing that darkness was fading
revealing a new morning light

Verse iii
it was so dark when I
hit the road
there were clouds in the sky

Verse iv
I was scared and the
night was cold
but there were stars in my eyes

Chorus ii
treading the labyrinth lightly
watching myself come apart
charting a course without reason
finding a path with a heart

Main Chorus
on and on
round and round
the spiral shrugs and turns

on and on
up and down
the puzzle is discerned

on and on
round and round
the master tells the tale
the story told
of myteries old
as hearts with zeal burn

try not to force your destination
you'll only fall on your face

and don't relive your disgrace

past the pillars of despair

pushing you into thin air

man, wake up
man, get real
sometimes you shine but you
ain't made of steel
man, wake up
and open up your eyes.

you are a beautiful sensation
you are a galaxy of stars
existing in a constellation
of other objects near and far

man, wake up
man, get real
sometimes you shine but you
ain't made of steel
man, wake up
and open up your eyes.

man, wake up
man, get smart
don't let illusion win and
tear you apart
you must prevail
and bust yourself out of jail

and I always feel
it's like a dream, but

Biography: band

For years, Irene's Garden has been making their own original music in the Central Wisconsin area. The vocal harmonies, mixed with keys, bass, guitar, percussion, and violin create what's been dubbed "organic rock and roll," and "hippie disco." Though their music tends to defy genre, influences from jazz, country, rock and roll and club music are apparent in their songs. And whatever you may call the music that comes from the seven member ensemble gets people out of their seats and onto the dance floor. When you go to an Irene's Garden show, expect to hear songs about love, life, and outer space. The band plays venues ranging from clubs to music festivals. To go along with several recording projects under their belts, Irene's Garden is currently working their newest project, Big Rock Theory, due this summer.

Not only that - he's also a kind, generous and patient human being (and he had to be to put up with us for so many years). We thank you.

Betsy (Elizabeth Malia Wadden) is a great fan and has become Irene's Garden principle archivist. If were not for her, many recordings and lyrics would have become irretrievably lost. Almost all of the live recordings of the Stellectrics and early Irene's Garden were obtained from this remarkable person.

Biography: band

For years, Irene's Garden has been making their own original music in the Central Wisconsin area. The vocal harmonies, mixed with keys, bass, guitar, percussion, and violin create what's been dubbed "organic rock and roll," and "hippie disco." Though their music tends to defy genre, influences from jazz, country, rock and roll and club music are apparent in their songs. And whatever you may call the music that comes from the seven member ensemble gets people out of their seats and onto the dance floor. When you go to an Irene's Garden show, expect to hear songs about love, life, and outer space. The band plays venues ranging from clubs to music festivals. To go along with several recording projects under their belts, Irene's Garden is currently working their newest project, Big Rock Theory, due this summer.
