We’ve had enough of empty words and all the imitations We’ve had enough of classless fools and reckless invitations We need to realize it’s time to visualize We’ve seen enough to know that nothing ever changes We’ve heard the patronizing countless times before We need to mobilize before they advertise We’ve got to recognize that it’s all just lies Come on down to Revolution Road Oh, we’ve got space for every soul Oh, come on down and don’t be slow The revolution waits for no one I’m told Down at Revolution Road your ideas won’t be strangled Down at Revolution Road you’ve got a fighting chance Down at Revolution Road you might just find your people Cause everybody here is ready for the dance We need to mobilize before they advertise We’ve got to recognize that it’s all just lies Come on down to Revolution Road Oh, we’ve got space for every soul Oh, come on down and don’t be slow The revolution waits for no one I’m told, oh We need to strategize before we compromise We can’t forget the crimes and those who gave their lives Come on down to Revolution Road Oh, we’ve got space for every soul Oh, come on down and don’t be slow The revolution waits for no one I’m told Oh, come on down to Revolution Road Oh, the time has come to save your soul Come on down and join the cause The Revolution waits for no one Revolution Revolution Revolution Road

Moderation 03:42
Moderation, moderation, like a runaway train with no station Moderation, moderation, it’s a problem across this nation On the TV and in the papers, all the advertisements tell us We need that new car and that big house, even though we can barely pay rent No need to worry, we’ve got you covered, you can have it now with this offer No money down and low payments, will get you nowhere fast except in debt Moderation, moderation, like a runaway train with no station Moderation, moderation, it’s a problem across this nation I used to be thin, I used to exercise, now I just sit in front of my flat screen I loved action, I sought adventure, now I just look forward to my dinner A change it has to come, and come swiftly, or I might not live to see 50 I have to simplify, I can’t listen, to the message that’s in rotation Moderation, moderation, like a runaway train with no station Moderation, moderation, it’s a problem across this nation Moderation, moderation, like a runaway train with no station Moderation, moderation, it’s a problem across this nation Moderation, moderation, like a no-holds-barred vacation Moderation, moderation, such a problem across this nation I wanna be rich, I wanna touch the sky I wanna see it all before I die Step on you going up, ain’t coming back down Get in my way and I’ll just run right around What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is too You should have learned that in your precious school I will never stop, I won’t ever quit Until the whole damn world is a throne for me to sit I’ll command you all and you better listen well Or I’ll make your lives a living hell

Crushed 04:42
I’m amazed to say the least It’s a policy we wrote And you feel so crushed just like you never had a clue at all Could you be holding on? Ignorance won’t make us strong There’ll be no martyr tonight No petty sacrificial rite And I won’t try to hide behind what I say You don’t need that strain Could you be holding on? Ignorance won’t make us strong Could you be waiting there to spend your life with me? Could you be holding on? And I know that you’re afraid to be alone Get to know yourself You won’t be lonely anymore Could you be Could you be Could you be waiting there to spend you life with me? Could you be holding on?

Rains Came 03:51
There’ll be times when I call your name There may be times when I still recognize your face But no one’s asking how you been or where you’re stayin’ And no one knows You took off when the rains came, left me standing in the cold You took off when the rains came, left me standing in the cold Well I don’t feel much like dying so you can’t have an inch of my soul I stood on believing there was a time when we took comfort in our hearts But no one was asking and no one was giving and that was just the start So take all your joy and take all your pain and wrap it all into one There’s gonna be a time when a cold wind’s gonna blow in and take you by surprise You took off when the rains came, left me standing in the cold Yeah, you took off when the rains came, left me standing in the cold Well I don’t feel much like dying so you can’t have an inch You took off when the rains came, left me standing in the cold Yeah, you took off when the rains came, left me standing in the cold Well I don’t feel much like crying and you can’t turn my heart into stone Well I don’t feel much like dying so you can’t have an inch of my soul

about

With over a decade of performances under their belts in and around the Twin Cities rock scene, Capital Sons are proud to announce their fifth release: Tempest. Following the positive critical reception of their full length album Rose-Colored World in 2018, Tempest finds the band at their creative best.

From the rebellious anthem of ‘Revolution Road’ to the heartfelt and groove-laden ‘Rains Came’, Capital Sons has refined their sound and created a body of work that shows them continuing to mature musically. The fiery and energetic ‘Moderation’ finds vocalist/lyricist Karl Obermeyer once again weaving metaphors and jabbing his lyrical knife into current social issues. Drummer Mike Jueneman’s lock-step rhythms and lead guitarist Rick Paukert’s emotional and atmospheric guitar work on ‘Crushed’ create the perfect background for Obermeyer’s lyrics of a relationship ending. On ‘Revolution Road’ the band creates the perfect bouncing anthem of rebellion and resistance, and on ‘Rains Came’ the band taps deep into their soulful side to bring to life the passion of a song written by the band’s new bass player, Keith Raney.

Capital Sons continue to prove their relevance and staying power as a guitar-driven rock band with heart, soul and substance on Tempest. Whether you are drawn to this collection of songs because of the lyrical depth or the rhythmic and instrumental stylings, there is something for every listener on this E.P.
