about

This album was Fringes second studio record. Written and recorded by Fringe, it was produced by Randy Everett from Terminal studios in Jackson MS, and mixed by John Hampton at Ardent Studio’s in Memphis TN. This album was recorded with Jason Clark – acoustic guitar and vocals, Eric Perry – drums, Jeremy Cole – bass, Charlie Townsend – electric guitars and Shawn Harnish – electric guitars.

Fringe had several guests in the studio. Jason’s sister, Aimee Perry, sang on a couple tracks and really adds to “Sacrifice.” Jason’s wife, Karen, also makes a beautiful appearance on that song. Albert Lamar played the flute on “One More Day To There” and makes it the bands favorite song. Jason’s favorite moment on the album is when Randy Everett played the haunting guitar solo in the middle of “Keep Me.”

Sadly, this album was never released. The label lost its distribution just as the band was wrapping up the recording. The label sought a new distribution deal but eventually dissolved.

The album, against the bands wishes, went to press under the title “Sacrifice.” It also had a slightly disturbing boy band picture of Fringe on the cover, again not what they wanted. Even so, the label was a wonderful group of people who greatly believed in Fringe and sacrificed along with the band to see their musical aspirations realized.

However, on this webpage, history has been re-written. The band had wanted the title “One More Day To There.” As far as cover art, the painting by Magdalena Wanli perfectly captures the beautiful hope the band felt while recording this album.

The album was completed in 2002 and has yet to be officially released.

Track Name: Fly Part 3
Fly, come on in this sky, come on its alright, this feels so right
God is on my side I’m on His side, we’re flying high
Built me wings of love to take me up from my night
Love, hey drink it in, its in the wind, its alive

We give it up, love
We give it up to a lovely day…well

Fly, come on in this sky, come on feels so right, it’s in the air
This wind, hey on my skin, sweet oxygen its everywhere
God is on my side, I’m on His side when I’m up here
So I keep to the skies, keep my dreams alive, my purpose clear

We give it up, love
We give it up to a lovely day…well

In these moments I rest assured, Your loves like the sands on the oceans floor
And still there’s more
And the more that I give to love, You set moth aflame, dry my tears of rust,
There’s room enough

Fly, come on in this sky, come on its alright, this feels so right
God is on my side, I’m on His side, we’re flying high
Track Name: Innocence
The clatter and the clamor, a thousand trembling hands
I’m the acrobat with my balancing act for innocence
And I gambled for the right, I prayed for the chance
I begged for the coo now with nothing to cling to but innocence

And in the sun, and in the sun,
And in Your Son, and in Your Son

And the curtain falls; I hope that it might be enough
Well you know I love to well the glamour the glimmer of this stuff
And I love to dream about things bright and beautiful
Well I know something that sustains so beautiful

As momentum starts to sway, pulls us all along the way
I’ll revel here in Your atmosphere and savor the wait
Always moving forward seeking the balance
Content to be in this symphony of innocence

We’re innocent, we’re innocent all of us
We’re innocent, we’re all innocent
Track Name: Sacrifice
Settle down your heart my dear
You cannot leave me here, I’ll follow after
And it could be a million miles from here to there
It would not matter, I wont let you down

And all along the way when everything else has changed
You’re still everything to me
Who’s to say what’s left behind, the heart often decides the mind,
And I know who pulls your heartstrings, I wont let you down

I will be the one to sacrifice; I will be the one to pay the price
My love will not compromise, it’s you

Never mind the falling snow,
It has no where else to go but down, down, down
It’s something that we can’t control
What would high be without low, I wont let you down

Oh my laughing girl we’ve been caught out in winter
And even in the mess
It could be a million miles from here to there
But I promise, I won’t let you down

I will be the one to sacrifice; I will be the one to pay the price
My love will not compromise, it’s you

Loves filling our senses, melting defenses
We will be all right
A million more chances to sweeter romances
We will be all right
It’s everything between, the moments of you and me
We will be all right
It's the beauty beyond the mess, the magic of us
We will be all right
Track Name: Keep Me
And I recall what I recall; I left by the back door
Believed in me and gave my wings to the night
Then the ground split open to swallow me whole
No bright lights to guide me up when I died, and I died

The earth and I became like lovers
I ate her fruit I even drank her wine
She asked, “will you stay forever”
But there was no sky so I began to climb

In the end when everything’s faded
No more passions to ride
In the end my wings I traded
For the cruelest of lies

You found me Love
You gave me wings
And from Your lungs
Are the winds that keep me

Up through the earth I began to wander
I searched both field and crowded city street
But every spirit that I saw there
Well they were empty just like me…just like me

In the end I found my way back into my body

You know the bird was
You know the bird was
You know the bird was caged
And every moment dreaming sky
Then the winds blow in
As if to say, You were made to fly!”

In the end when everything’s faded
No more passions to ride
In the end my wings I traded
For the cruelest of lies

You found me Love
You gave me wings
And from Your lungs
Are the winds that keep me

If I lost all I believe
If I walked away
If I lost the faith to receive
If I forgot grace
If I lost sight of the sun
My sense of direction
If I lost love…

If I lost all of my breath
There’s nothing left
Fell from the sky
Wings to the night
Cover me, care for me, love me
Keep me Yours, keep me Yours
Keep me, Keep me Yours…
Track Name: Take Away
Take away unnecessary sorrow
These pathways that only lead to pain
Take away the worries of tomorrow
And all the lows from yesterday
Take away the heart that is despairing
Keep me from fear and doubt I pray
Take away unnecessary burdens
And the sting of dark memories

You’re the reason for hoping the reason for giving
You’re the reason for laughing, You’re my reason for living
You’re my reason for loving, my reason for loving…

Take away wolves in sheep’s clothing
All of those whose trust betray
Take away those who ridicule
The unbelieving heart I pray
Take away jealousy and envy
All the roads that only lead to hate

You’re the reason for hoping the reason for giving
You’re the reason for laughing, You’re my reason for living
You’re my reason for loving, my reason for loving…

You take away, you do
Take away all that is not you…
Track Name: Replace
I made a clear about face, replace
Drained to my origins, clothed in grace
Over under in your own way
Kind and gentle or with great fury
Your subtle as silk, bold like a forest fire
I’m driven by whip or drawn in by desire

All of these moments in my life, over the hungry seas of time
The glories that tomorrow find, love and love the ties that bind
It’s the miracle of grace, It’s the smile upon Your face
It’s the beauty of today that’s just arrived with plans to stay
You’re the color in my life, You’re the sparkle in my eyes
You freed my heart and cleared my mind
I’ll take the road less travelled
And now I’m on my way…

Into new good things, sweet things I come
To the innocence of birth I return
I’m strong like a bear, weak as a newborn child
Cautious, carful, passions running wild

All of these moments in my life, over the hungry seas of time
The glories that tomorrow find, love and love the ties that bind
It’s the miracle of grace, It’s the smile upon Your face
It’s the beauty of today that’s just arrived with plans to stay
You’re the color in my life, You’re the sparkle in my eyes
You freed my heart and cleared my mind
I’ll take the road less travelled
And now I’m on my way…
Track Name: Mercy
Somewhere you lost love, gave it up to shame
Somewhere hope died, somewhere you lost faith
Give it up, give it up, give it up, give it away

Somewhere paradise was lost
You took up guilt and built yourself a new cross
Traded freedom for fear
Cause you wanted badly to get to somewhere, somewhere

Somewhere your vision fell, in the struggle your church pulled down
Somewhere the truth was spilled, your tattoos just a tribute to skin

Somewhere paradise was lost
You took up guilt and built yourself a new cross
Traded freedom for fear
Cause you wanted badly to get to somewhere, somewhere

Mercy, mercy, mercy…

When you’re tired when you’re weak when you fall to defeat
When you hurt when you bleed when you thirst when you need
When you fail to believe, love, love, love…
Mercy, mercy, mercy
Track Name: Head Over Heals
Love, love

Sweet love come darling the air is alive
The time is right for you and me
The world is spinning, I am grinning like a fool for you,
Love is roaming free
For you, for you, for you my lovely girl
I will be the one to fall…

In the wake of new beginnings
I can’t say exactly how to feel
Colors blur and winters fade
I’m sold on something real
And I would be the one to hold you,
Kiss you, love you, till the morning comes
Everything will be alright, my love is this your song
Tell me baby I’ll sing along
And after this day, we’ll celebrate
New days ahead to anticipate, love

Love, love

I will stay awhile let my heart beat with yours
I’m dancing dear to your melody
And I can feel you, see you, know you, praise you
Your everything to me
I want to be for you, for you, for you my lovely girl
Well I will be the one to fall…

In the wake of new beginnings
I can’t say exactly how to feel
Colors blur and winters fade
I’m sold on something real
And I would be the one to hold you,
Kiss you, love you, till the morning comes
Everything will be alright, my love is this your song
Tell me baby I’ll sing along
And after this day, we’ll celebrate
New days ahead to anticipate, love

Love, love

Its you, its you, its you my lovely girl
Its you, its you, its you my lovely girl
And I will be the one to fall,
I will be the one to fall down
I will be the one to fall
Head over heals
Track Name: Killing Kind
I met him on the street, he wanted a cigarette
Looking back I wonder, there’s something’s you cant forget
He told me I was dying like a soldier out at war
He said son we’re all dying but what are you dying for
And then somewhere behind me

I heard the sirens roar, onward little soldiers
All marching out to war, all marching out to war

I found myself dreaming of anger and of war
Of injustices done me, and vengeances Id swore
And suddenly I am separate within a world of rage
Where hardened hearts conspire and wicked men debate
And hurting those I love, while pride it robbed me blind
The anger takes away love, what mercy seeks to find
And then his words came to me, like not to long before
We all one day will die, well what are you dying for
And then somewhere behind me

I heard the sirens roar, onward little soldiers
All marching out to war, all marching out to war

Onward marching
Little soldiers marching…

Sleeping in the balance, and drifting on resolve
And if I had the courage, I might yield up to love
Will I be coming home soon, a home I hope to find
Cause I, I don’t belong here, I’m not the killing kind
Well I’ve been out at war dear but I’m not the Killing kind
And I would die for love dear but I’m not the killing kind
I’ve not slept well lately, no I’m not the killing kind
And I would die for love dear but I’m not the killing kind
Track Name: Oxygen
The shadows cast from darker past a sorrow over our ship
From an angry sea we ran aground on a land of sadness
And on those sands we built kingdoms but the sea he would not rest
The old man drowned our new land down until we did repent, repent

In our plans, well we’ve made brave claims on distant lands
Giving in to these winds that blow us on to new horizons

So we set sail, left these sands unto the other side
We were baptized in calmer seas beneath a yellow sky
We came upon a midnight sun who blew in gentler winds
A sweet perfume we’d never know, filled our lungs with oxygen

In our plans, well we’ve made brave claims on distant lands
Giving in to these winds that blow us on to new horizons

In the moonlight, a sailor’s sky comes alive
And in the morning, when we arrived we tasted light and dreamt of stars

In our plans, well we’ve made brave claims on distant lands
Giving in to these winds that blow us on to you
Track Name: One More Day To There
Put away the old, never to forget
Things we’ve always know but left unsaid
Hopes we cant erase old promises in hand
Things that cant be changed, things we may never understand
Well we’ve tasted pain, spoiled certain plans
Cast its shadow on further seas, kept us from brighter lands
For the mountains climbed and dry riverbeds
So the miles behind point to those ahead

All the while, all the while
All the while there are places still yet to see
All the while there are dreams still left to dream
And we’re one more day to there
All this time there is grace here to provide
What’s left behind only sweetens the other side
As visions fade, rearranged and stripped bare
What remains is we’re one more day to there

So evening comes and we cannot stay
So we carry on though the road’s unpaved
And the more we love is the more we gain
And the more we give that love might sustain
And the wine we’ve shared is the bridge between
We’ve slept in mercies bed, she gave us back everything
It’s the time to live, to dream again
It’s a time for further seas and brighter lands

All the while, all the while
All the while they are places still yet to see
All the while there are dreams still left to dream
And we’re one more day to there
All this time there is grace here to provide
What’s left behind only sweetens the other side
As visions fade, rearranged and stripped bare
What remains is we’re one more day to there

For the air we breathe for new hopes conceived
For the love we’ve shared, for old wounds now healed
For the brand new day, for the dreaming done
For the gift of grace is for everyone

All the while, all the while
All the while they are places still yet to see
All the while there are dreams still left to dream

One more day…
