Days of the New, AKA Travis Meeks was a powerful force in the last 90’s rock scene, touring with Metallica and holding down the Number 1 spot on the Billboard Rock chart for a record breaking 17 weeks straight with the grungy acoustic jam “Touch, Peel and Stand”, which came from their debut album titled “Orange”.


Lyrical excerpt from “Touch, Peel, and Stand”:

“Yes, I've finally found a reason
I won't need an excuse
I've got this time on my hands
You are the one to abuse
 “


The two subsequent albums “Green” and “Red” were met with much less success in terms of sales and radio singles. While both exquisite albums with standalone, standout tracks, “Green” really captures your imagination as it flows from one song to the next in concept album fashion. The first track from “Green” being “Flight Response” is this weeks pick to question existence.

I’ve always pictured riding horseback in a western desert scape, six string on my back and six more at side. The thunderous clap of the band of horses galloping alongside the hot rail of the passing ghost train, in the distance, visions of an abandoned town now varnished in sand by the desert wind, we ride in not knowing what might be unearthed. I’ll let the lyrics tell the rest of the misguided journey of life and the unknown. 

Lyrics:

Out of the blue
Bonifide
Response of the brain
Intense adrenaline flow
Flow
Out of control
Sudden jolt
Freezing in fear
Trauma road
Road
Traveling real
Pain is my pill
Ride it out of you can
Can
Dilation of eyes
Panic surprise
I've lost my pill now I'm numb
Numb
Down on my knees wanting to die
Mistaken beliefs of real life
Life
Prepare for the flight
Reward your misguide
Get off your knees time to fly

When everything in your life is good
Then it got bad
Would you hate me
So what am I supposed to do about it
About it
Yeah, I'm running insane
Running insane
La la la

Colorful shapes
A vivid mistake
I've lost intake
Give my sore
Heart a new soul
Soul
Nerves play my role
I'm not whole
Give me the soul
Now I'll run
Run
Running insane
Follow the pain
Mistaken beliefs of real life
Life
Prepare for the flight
Reward your misguide
Get off your knees time to fly

When everything in your life is good
Then it got bad
Would you hate me
So what am I supposed to do about it
About it
Yeah, I'm running insane
Running insane
La la la

I won't be safe again
I won't, I won't

Well, I won't be safe again
I won't, I won't.
