about

The Seers' fifth album was recorded from September of 2016 to April of 2017 in Fort Collins, Colorado with the engineering and production assistance from Darren Radach (Stout Studios, Fort Collins, CO) and Tyler Lindgren (Asymmetrical Smile Productions, Los Angeles, CO). Drawing from Americana, Folk, Indie, Pop, and Classic Alternative Rock, this record showcases the growth of the Seers as recording artists over the past seven years.

With a musical collaboration spanning more than fifteen years, the Seers have transformed their love for classic rock and experimental pop into a walking, talking, modern-day jukebox of musical versatility. With a “stunning repertoire” of over 700 covers and 100 Americana Folk Rock originals, Brian Collins and Sean Waters perform at least 125 regional shows per year while writing and recording in the studio.

Brian Collins and Sean Waters have written over 150 songs, and have released one album a year since 2012. Their 11-song debut EP, “Universal Tree” was rich with experimental, stream-of-consciousness progressive folk rock and piano ballads.

Diving deeper into their love for classic rock, two eclectic rock albums engineered and co-produced by Darren Radach: “The Seers” (2013) and “Cellophane Eyes” (2014).

In 2016, The Seers worked with Danny Kalb (Beck, Ben Harper, and Foster the People), and Airshow Mastering to release the Alternative Rock / Vintage Rock EP “Signals” to critical acclaim.

This is the Seers' fifth album.

Track Name: You May Cry
You may cry like a child When you don’t get what you need
Left to wonder sometimes Is there someone there for me
Have no fear hear my friend There’s a lot left to complete
And you’re feeling dull in deed But there’s a world outside that’s free

You were with me all the time
But you know that’s not quite right
you are deceiving
Yet somehow you make a mind
To pray to the god in me you think you’re seeing,
Well you’re the only reason

You’re standing here today But the brink of revelations say
To yourself you don’t believe You’re loosing your mind
We all do from time to time

Oh try though we might We may never see the light
And it seems that if we do it will be later on in life
There’s a way where there’s a will And in your mind you’re doing time
In your mind you’re doing time Yes in your mind you’re doing time

You were with me all the time
But you know that’s not quite right you are deceiving
Yet somehow you make a mind
To run to the door when you have no good reason
Just left to leave it

It goes on for too long,
These impressions that are so
Just remember to believe,
You can let it go With love eternally

Oh why make a mind Stay away most all the time
Just come home just come home I’ve been waiting half the night
Oh why make a mind Stay away most all the time
Just come home just come home I’ve been waiting half the night
Track Name: Out On The Horizon
Sky was sinking and I don’t know why
He pulled a knife in the stormy sky
Song was merely vision off a plane
Stars swollen a particular way

Out on the Horizon, a few words to call your own
Out on the Horizon, a few words to call your home

Shades gathering up at the bar
Early memories of soulful offers of
Nearby waiting till the shocking came
Describe himself in a particular way

Out on the Horizon, a few words to call your own
Out on the Horizon, a few words to call your home

And you owe it all away and owe it all away (don’t forget you self)
Mama said child ma

Trapped a work around in Chinatown
found an alleyway his soul went down
Fevered poppy knows the game
Kaliedescopic a particular way

Out on the Horizon, a few words to call your own
Out on the Horizon, a few words to call your home
Out on the Horizon, a few words to call your own
Out on the Horizon, a few words to call your home
Track Name: Better Days
Lord knows we’ll all see better days,
Lord knows we been down on our knees
Sleep was filled last night with real bad dreams,
our friends had become our enemies

In times like these all that you can see
what's in front of you that's not all you've got
Find your way to a new remedy
cause this world got more love than you thought

Waaaaaah wa dap bwadup bwaaa
bwadup bwaaa wa dap bwadup bwaaa
(We’ll all see better days)

Don't forget compassion others have shown,
when you’re down you can find a new heart.
It feels so good to take just one deep breath
let it out, and dust yourself off

In times like these all that you can see
what's in front of you that's not all you've got
Find your way to a new remedy
cause this world got more love than you thought

Waaaaaah wa dap bwadup
bwaaa wa dap bwadup bwaaa
(We’ll all see better days)

All we need is some laughter Just some sunshine
All we need is a feeling, so easy to find
Say an simple prayer for the world around you don’t lose your mind

Waaaaaah wa dap bwadup
bwaaa wa dap bwadup bwaaa
(We’ll all see better days)
Track Name: Black and Blue
When everything seems so black and blue
And only thing I think about is me and you
Wish there was something more I could say,
but I feel my words escape

So what’s the thing to just to put on some daze
Don’t tell me it’s through, I want the rest of my days

Slowly getting over , slowly getting over, slowly over you
Slowly getting over , slowly getting over, slowly over you

When everything seems so blue and grey,
clouds in my mind on a sunny day
Wish there was something to clear my eyes,
but I’m frozen up inside

So what’s the thing to do just put on some daze
Don’t tell me it’s through, I want the rest of my days

Slowly getting over , slowly getting over, slowly over you
Slowly getting over , slowly getting over, slowly over you
Track Name: Miss You Still
I miss you in the morning
cup of coffee, a fleeting thought
And I know if I keep my eyes open,
It's easy to turn it off

But I miss you still as I always will

I miss you every season
lonely feeling, the medicine tastes
On the vine, over 30 years old now,
I’ve got to do whatever it takes

But I miss you still as I always will
Yes I miss you still as I always will

Don't fade out, don't fade out friend
It plays out until it ends

I miss you every season,
Like an echo of feelings past
But I know that I'm going to make it
If I'd only let the moment pass

But I miss you still as I always will
But I miss you still as I always will
Track Name: Man of Terror
Walkin in my sleep
I saw the strangest thing
Image of a figure strong and tall
I knew that voice was me
In a different tapestry
And so I turned my ears to hear the call

Crept over the edge
Where somehow I’d been lead
The world I found wasn’t quite the same
The highs were rendered low
Like the valleys the mountains sow
I remembered my soul and forgot my name

There’s gonna come a rumbling from in the ground
The big bad one will try to shake us down
Look through the sky while you remember how
Cause it’s getting pretty close to now

It occurred to me
I’d become a willow tree
Planted in the Earth so soft and fine
They used to shake me round
Now they want to cut me down
But the man of terror ain’t gonna win this time

There’s gonna come a rumbling from in the ground
The big bad one will try to shake us down
Look through the sky while you remember how
Cause it’s getting pretty close to now

The Earth will part beneath
And I’ll free my tree root feet
The man of terror, swallowed, and be gone
Strong Wind’s gonna come
Shake my branches from above
And that is how I’ll wave the good man on

There’s gonna come a rumbling from in the ground
The big bad one will try to shake us down
Look through the sky while you remember how
Cause it’s getting pretty close to now

I strode up past the edge
To my former form and said
Man may live in peace for evermore
Track Name: Slow Tune
I need to find some new ideas I’m getting tired of the old ones
why don’t you sit back by yourself and write another slow song
When the sun sets on the hill and the mountains hit the moon
gonna play another slow tune

Living here on this street, feel like I made quite a comeback
There’s a voice inside of that says I’m still on the wrong track
Because there’s so much work to do,
if you let time run you through,
all your gonna do is look back

Cause I gotta be moving on, gotta be moving on now
Cause I gotta be moving on, gotta be moving on now

Cause I’m here on this front porch swing just sitting here dozing
For all purposes of mankind, you know I might as well be frozen
While there’s the kids across the street,
sound so happy and free to me
still a life unchosen

Cause I gotta be moving on, gotta be moving on now
Cause I gotta be moving on, gotta be moving on now

Time’s not on my side, so I might as well be praying
Never cared too much, I wish that I was playing
Finally crossed my mind,
slipped away so many times
Now I must be paying

I need to find some new ideas I’m getting tired of the old ones
why don’t you sit back by yourself and write another slow song
When the sun sets on the hill
and the mountains hit the moon,
gonna play another slow tune
Track Name: Cottonwood
You know I’ve lived alone most of my life,
But that don’t worry me none most of the time
But when the sky Fills up with a cold rain
I wake at night To remember a slow pain
And I know things may never be all right
Chorus:
Way down in Cottonwood
Where a man’s misunderstood
Somebody waits for me on the 21st floor
Verse 2:
Put on my dusty shoes and I went travelin’ down home > Put on my dusty shoes to travel down home
Stood out there in the yard at night all alone
And slipped away under a cold spell
When I heard her speak from out of the old well
She said you’d best remember me before I’m gone

Because way down in Cottonwood
Where a man’s misunderstood
Somebody waits for me on the 21st floor

Way down in Cottonwood
Where a man’s misunderstood
Somebody waits for me on the 21st floor
And these long nights in Cottonwood
She may write but it does no good
And she’ll wait for me on the 21st floor
Knowin I ain’t comin round no more
Knowin I ain’t comin round no more
Track Name: Ode To Kristofferson
When I came to Colorado, trying to find my kin
Trying to find that something, to save me from the mess I’m in
Went out into the open, trying to find my love
Sun is always rising, waiting for me above

On summer nights, and winter days
They still meet, where the road is open
Trusting Sun, in the sky of grey
Just might melt (the clouds away)

Skeletons in my closet, ambitions in my shoe
Everything is backwards so I don’t know what to do
Well I’ve got to go swimming, got to cleanse myself of hate
I’ve got to find jesus, I’ve got to awake
So I ask you for some coffee, just something to jolt my brain
But you give me something stronger and I’m trying not to go insane

On summer nights, and winter days
They still meet, where the road is open
Trusting Sun, in the sky of grey
Just might melt (the clouds away)

So now I’m oscillating between leavenworth and serpentine
Or Am I levitating, or have I lost my mind
I turned on the station just trying to hear my call,
Everybody wants the same thing, everybody wants it all
I guess I’m not so different, different as I think
Let’s all jump all jump in the water and take a look if I sink

On summer nights, and winter days
They still meet, where the road is open
Trusting Sun, in the sky of grey
Just might melt (the clouds away)
Track Name: To the Country
If life had run you through, if it ever gets to you,
go to the country for a day, your perspective will change
And Breathe the air around you, stillness can be found
peace that lives inside you, serenity’s all around
yours is the strength I need, yours is the song I sing oooh

Does it matter what they say, if no one thinks my way
To be out on the land, the birds will understand
Breathe the air around you, stillness can be found
peace that lives inside you, serenity’s all around
yours is the strength I need, yours is the song I sing

Spent time away from this lonely room,
gotta be enough to make you change your tune
Let it be known that life is free right now

yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
We’ve all got somewhere left to go
We’ve all got so much left to know
