  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    For you vinyl lovers out there - Saratoga on beautiful black 12" vinyl with a varied song sequence to better suit the "Side A" / "Side B" format.

    The album jacket, designed by FDR graphics guru Mike Virok, includes the David Appel photo of the band in the studio on the back and the Tris McCall photo of urban NJ on the cover. It's such a pleasure to see this design in a 12 x 12 format rather than the tiny compact disc - but the real allure here is the beautiful sound of this album on the vinyl. Also included in this order is the 11 x 11 insert / lyric sheet and the SF Beer Tour sticker (designed by freelance artist Jason Kochis).

lyrics

Oh dear Mother, here comes another
Oh dear Mother, another child of the sea
Oh dear Mother, here comes another
Oh dear Mother, another child for to feed

In the morning children napping
Mother lies awake and listens to the water lapping

Oh dear Mother, here comes another
Oh dear Mother, another child on your knee
Oh dear Mother, here comes another
Oh dear Mother, another wanton refugee

And the day turns into evening
Another ray of light fall through the broken ocean ceiling

There is no better time
There is no better time to tell you
What were we waiting for

THere is no better time
There is not better time to tell you
We’re giving back the awards

We’re giving back the gold stars
We’re giving back the congratulations
What did we want it for

We’re giving back the awards
We’re giving back the congratulations
What did we want it for?

I have no dice to take my chances
I have no light to guide my way

I could be right and still be senseless
Put up a fight and still be senseless
I can’t be here in this world
Without you here in this world
