about

After 15 years of silence, the Rocket Soul Choir is back with a crisper, tighter set of tracks. This time the Rocket Soul Choir utilizes the arrangement skills of new drummer, Pete Boulger, and finally succumbs to stalwart bassist Jason Wahl's wishes to plug in an electric and turn it up. The result still ploughs the field of folk honesty, but also delivers a much needed injection of energy into Leslie's slightly off-kilter way of approaching love, hope, rejection and salvation. The music itself won't be rewriting the book of singer-songwriters gone electric, but the believability contained within is something all but a few in this genre consistently provide.

Track Name: Blindly Moving Anyway
Pick your reasons, if you dare to
Come on speak your mind
But speak the truth now, it's only fair to
It's easy to define

And it's barely holding on
But it's blindly moving anyway
It's hoping after hope
Somewhere down at the end of your rope

Now you may argue, that there's just no proof
Other that what you can see
My hope
Is built
Upon a rock
And in the words I read

And it's barely holding on
And it's blindly moving anyway
It's hoping after hope
Somewhere down at the end of your rope

And I have love
Enough for you
Should you stumble or should you fall
And I barrel down
In my clumsy way
To help you see it all

And it's barely holding on
And it's blindly moving anyway
It's hoping after hope
Somewhere down at the end of your rope
Track Name: Kidder's Son
The weekend comes
And I say, "Oh Lord, what have I done with the time?"
What an awful waste of space
This time I resign
Myself to the will of whatever happens
Although not to be that preconceived

If I want it back, what I've always lacked
What you stole from me
If the demons come, with the morning sun
I'll be waiting
Because I can lie, I can cheat and steal
And I have
You can't kid a kidder, son

It's all thrown up
Up into the air to see where it falls and this time
I don't care where we land
And I hold my head
Up high above the stormy water
That you dare to, throw me into

If I want it back, what I've always lacked
What you stole from me
If the demons come, with the morning sun
I'll be waiting
Because I can lie, I can cheat and steal
And I have
You can't kid a kidder, son

Where have we been
And I can't remember the path that we took
But all of the signs seem so familiar

If I want it back, what I've always lacked
What you stole from me
If the demons come, with the morning sun
I'll be waiting
If I want it back, what I've always lacked
What you stole from me
If the demons come, with the morning sun
I'll be waiting
I'll be waiting
I'll be waiting
You can't kid a kidder, son
Track Name: Long Line Of Fools
It's the latest
Long line of
Long line of fools
Could be the
Greatest
Long line of fools
This love makes waves for you
This love makes waves for you
It's the latest
Long line of
Long line of fools

I've been walking on the pavement
I've been walking on the moon
I've been dancing on treetops
I've been dancing like a fool

It's a new love on a new day
It's a new love in it's own way
It's a new love on a new day
It's a new love it's a new way
Of letting go

This is how I
Feel right now
And I can't see it changing
Could be the
Greatest
Greatest thing to mention
This love makes waves for you
This love makes waves for you
It's the latest
Could be the greatest
Long line of fools

I've been walking on the pavement
I've been walking on the moon
I've been dancing on treetops
I've been dancing like a fool

It's a new love on a new day
It's a new love in it's own way
It's a new love on a new day
It's a new love it's a new way
Of letting go
Track Name: Kind Of A Love Song
I don't know where we're going
But I know that we're going
I keep good company, so you keep good company
If it doesn't leave a mark
Well, it should leave a mark
Because scars are the way, we share everything we say

This is not a love song, but it's kind of a love song
No need to wait to see if everything turns out right
This is not a love song, but it's kind of a love song
It's kind of a love song

If you leave this to me
Then I promise to try
And if and when that I fall over and die
You can put the price
Upon my head
Where I can rarely see, 'cos it's for them and not for me

This is not a love song, but it's kind of a love song
No need to wait to see if everything turns out right
This is not a love song, but it's kind of a love song
It's kind of a love song

You treat me like a friend
And I'll treat you like a friend
Some of the time it's easy, sometimes not so easy
You'll always be there, not to touch, but you'll be there
'Cos life is insane and you'll always be the same

This is not a love song, but it's kind of a love song
No need to wait to see if everything turns out right
This is not a love song, but it's kind of a love song
It's kind of a love song
Track Name: Qualified
This ain't the first, or the last about lovers
And I'm not the one to help you learn
'Cos some of the best have passed me over
The survivors have ben the hardest to verse

I'm not qualified
Your love and mine are two different things
I need more than that
Than a minute of passion thrown in from the wings
A minute of passion
A minute of passion
Thrown in from the wings

There's nothing so lost as when we don't have each other
There's an empty space that you left behind
I turn off the light and still hope to feel you
Your comforting flesh, laying by my side

But I'm not qualified
Your love and mine are two different things
I need more than that
Than a minute of passion thrown in from the wings
A minute of passion
A minute of passion
Thrown in from the wings

Sometimes my arms grow weak from the holding
On so tight to this fragile design
Your mouth and mine are locked in communion
But there's someone else at the front of my mind
Someone else at the front of my mind
Somebody else
Somebody else

But I'm not qualified
Your love and mine are two different things
I need more than that
Than a minute of passion thrown in from the wings
A minute of passion
A minute of passion
A minute of passion
A minute of passion
A minute of
A minute of
A minute of
