about

“A crunchy, hard rocking masterpiece, the vocal harmonies are really stellar. Truly well crafted songs imbued with the spirit of David Bowie, Roger Waters, and Bruce Springsteen.” - Surviving The Golden Age

"Impressive." - The Vinyl District

"So Impressed." - Magnet Magazine

"Neil's cover of Lou Reed's "There Is No Time" relentlessly blasts you into submission." - Powerpopaholic

“A scintillating master work. Only Neil can weave between Neil Young, The Kinks, and Queens of the Stone Age from song to song. - Blogs N Roses

"This record is to Neil Nathan what The Wall was to Pink Floyd." - NowThisRocks!

“Scorching. Infectious and full of hooks. .” - New Zealand’s Off The Tracks

"Fearless anthems for freedom fighters. The louder you play this, the better it sounds." - New York Music Daily

"A passionate tribute to 70’s glam-rock, deftly mixing elements of power-pop and alternative rock for yummy good measure." - JerseyBeat

"Neil's the bastard step child of Jackson Browne & David Bowie." - U.K.'s No Ripchord Magazine

"Pretty damned cool. Neil Nathan incorporates plenty of Bowie, Bolan, Neil Young, Lou Reed and Stooges in his muscular homage to the current times." - Aiding & Abetting

“Neil Nathan fights the power!” - 30 Seconds Over

"A beautiful call to arms for the common man, an all out tooth to the curb attack on the corruption, greed, and tyranny that surround us. Neil’s voice is just as majestic when he is angry as it is when he is in love." - Trainwrecked Society

easy come and easy go
what was new now is old
what was old now is new again

left me standing in the pouring rain
storm astounding yes we're here again
was a time when i did what i was told
but i ain't crazy and i can't let this go

you can't see this condition
then act like it isn't a crime
what i need is conviction
and now cause there ain't no time

sound of thunder
everywhere today
you left me lying in a puddle of pain
now it don't matter whatever you do
it don't matter cuz i know it was you

you can't see this condition
then act like it isn't a crime
what i need is conviction
and now cause there ain't no time

easy come and easy go
what was new now is old
what was old now is new again
it's coming round the bend

left me standing in the pouring rain
storm astounding yes we're here again

Track Name: I Ain't No Company Man
can't hear you talking to me
cuz the din’s just too damn loud
all the people here in NYC
standing up and singing proud

i ain't no company man
i ain't no company man
i ain't no company man
damn your master plan

i never was and i never will be
just a cog with my head in the sand
i never toiled for the lucky ones
i never strode on the backs of the damned

i ain't no company man
i ain't no company man
i ain't no company man
damn your master plan

in the 21st century, the united states was toppled by companies deemed too big too fail
they operated under the umbrella corporation known as usa inc.
in what became known as the corporate revolution, all the nations of the world went down this path
soon thereafter earth’s companies merged and became united nations inc.

this ain't your country tis of thee
not your sweet land of liberty now
oh say baby can you see
the operator of this merry go round?

i ain't no company man
i ain't no company man
i ain't no company man
damn your master plan
Track Name: There Is No Time
written by lou reed
lyrics adapted by neil nathan

this is no time for celebration
this is no time for shaking hands
this is no time for more backslapping
this is no time for marching bands

this is no time for optimism
this is no time for endless thought
this is no time for my country right or wrong
remember what that brought

there is no time

this is no time to count your blessings
this is no time for private gain
this is a time to put up or shut up
it won't come this way again

this is no time to swallow anger
this is no time to ignore hate
this is no time to be acting frivolous
because the time is getting late

there is no time

this is no time for private vendettas
this is no time to not know who you are
self knowledge is a dangerous thing
the freedom of who you are

this is no time to ignore warnings
this is no time to clear the plate
let's not be sorry after
let the past become out fate

there is no time

this is no time for congratulations
this is no time to turn your back
this is a time to gather force
and take dead aim and attack

this is no time for celebration
this is no time for saluting flags
this is no time for inner searchings
because the future is at hand

this is no time for phony rhetoric
this is no time for political speech
this is a time for action
because the future's within reach

this is the time
there is no time
Track Name: For The Lucky Ones
we the dream
each of us in our own way
you and me
each of us will have our day
yes we believed in all good things to those who wait

so over and over
we trusted in vain
while they were playing their blameless shell game
waiting like job, for the winds of our change
our saving grace

for the lucky ones
for the bold and the free and
for the lucky ones
for you and for me and
for the lucky ones
for the soul of the dream and
for the lucky ones
for the right to believe it

we achieved our tired our poor through golden doors
they deceived and turned those doors to teeming shores

over and over
like children they play
taking whatever they want til the day
mommy and daddy stand up and they say
no not this way

for the lucky ones
for the bold and the free and
for the lucky ones
for you and for me and
for the lucky ones
for the soul of the dream and
for the lucky ones
for the right to believe it

over and over
like children they play
taking whatever they want til the day
mommy and daddy stand up and they say
no not this way

for the lucky ones
for the bold and the free and
for the lucky ones
for you and for me and
for the lucky ones
for the soul of the dream and
for the lucky ones
for the right to believe
what we gave away
all for the love of the lucky ones
we were led astray
looking as though we were having fun no
for the lucky ones
for the bold and the free and
for the lucky ones
for you and for me and
for the lucky ones
Track Name: Evey
oh evey, oh evey, oh evey you'll always be mine

tell me
tell me I'm the one who showed you the truth

send me
send me down the tracks to blow up this ruse

but I had to let you go
had to let you make up your mind, mind, mind, mind
nobody will ever know
what we had together
our time, time, time, time
oh evey, oh evey, oh evey you'll always be mine

oh just to feel you
to hold and to steal you
to gaze on your lips
one last time

tell me
tell me I'm the one who freed you from ruin

send me
send me all your love and all of your hate too

but I had to let you go
had to let you make up your mind, mind, mind, mind
nobody will ever know
what we had together
our time, time, time, time
oh evey, oh evey, oh evey you'll always be mine

oh just to feel you
to hold and to steal you
to gaze on your lips
one last time

but I had to let you go
had to let you make up your mind, mind, mind, mind
no one else will ever know
what we had together
our time, time, time, time
oh evey, oh evey, oh evey you'll always be mine
oh evey
Track Name: Pathway To Ruin
fear rising across the land
paralyzing all
welcome to the promised land
they got us all

on the pathway to ruin
up ahead miles of tears
can you see our undoing?
don't you know why we're here?

hypnotizing the common man
sleepwalking tall
but wide awake in disneyland
bumrushers all

on the pathway to ruin
up ahead miles of tears
can you see our undoing?
don't you know why we're here?

dividing man from man
surmising their master plan
if we don’t rise today
what will our children say?
hung out to dry and left out on

on the pathway to ruin
up ahead miles of tears
can you see our undoing?
don't you know why we're here?
Track Name: Everybody Everywhere
everybody
everybody everywhere

everybody, everybody
put your hands together
if you’re tired of all the lies we’re told
to keep us tethered
in this world of fascination
you can’t find no answers
turn your tv off and plug into your own disaster

hey, hey, hey

everybody, everybody
can we work together?
to redeem this world and excavate our only treasure
cuz the loving that ya bring
is the start of everything

hey, hey, hey

everybody
everybody everywhere
it’s never easy
it’s never easy to be
your own savior
and not your own worst enemy
when your country
when your world ain’t looking out
for your future
when your fate it hangs in doubt
when our fate it hangs in doubt
when your fate it hangs in

hey, hey, hey
Track Name: A Way
a way

feel the beat feel the heat
feel the rhythm now
feel the twist feel the shake
feel the here and now

when you feel there's nothing but today
guaranteed to blow your mind away

a way

watch ‘em dance
watch ‘em move
watch ‘em slip away
what they land
what they lose
just another day

when you see they've thrown it all away
guaranteed to make you go insane

it's a mood
it's a taste
for the struggle now

what u know
what u face
gotta share it now

when u know the time has come today
guaranteed to find a better way

a way

i can feel now this is your moment
i can see now this is your moment
now I know that it's never over
now I know that it's never over
Track Name: All We Need Is So Much More
yesterday was
far and wide
I heard ya calling
in the name of
fear and greed and all that’s stolen

all we need is so much more

what ya gave us
hopes and dreams and endless longing
what we gave up
everything
an endless dawning

all we need is so much more
yes we will stand up and rise today
all we need is so much more
