Fly Part 3 02:34
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

Innocence 03:24
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

Sacrifice 04:02
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

Keep Me 05:32
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…
5.
Take Away 04:03
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…
6.
Replace 03:48
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…

Mercy 04:19
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
8.
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

Killing Kind 04:58
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
10.
Oxygen 03:11
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
11.
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…

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.
