about

In January, 2013 North American folk/indie band Easton Stagger Phillips returned to the studio to record their follow-up to 2009's One For The Ditch. Scheduled to drop in May 2014, the new album titled Resolution Road is a sprawling masterpiece of 10 classic sounding folk and rock songs. From the massive opening harmonies of Phillips' 'Always Came Back To You', through the road worn vocal delivery of Stagger's 'Life of Crime', to Easton's timeless and Beatle-esque album closer 'Baby Come Home,’ Resolution Road takes listeners on a journey with three veteran songwriters who have mined their individual styles to produce a collective soundscape.

Track Name: Always Came Back To You
I'm gonna believe, cause you never could make predictions
We were something to see, yes we had our afflictions
Everyone gets stuck inside, broke down beat then mystified for days
And I never knew what to think or do
Even though I turned away, I always came back to you

I'm gonna forgive you, for doing all the things you did
You were never untrue, I guess you just had to be a kid
You're friends come knocking at you door, 3am and you hit the floor again
And I never knew what to think or do
Even though I turned away, I always came back to you....
Track Name: Traveler
I am a traveler at the speed of light, I don't know where I'll be sleeping tonight
But If you see me won't you please shine your light I'm just a boy
The World is spinning and it's out of control, too many people with nowhere to go
Just when you start to think that you're on a roll you get stranded
I wish that we could go back in time
We were young and we were feeling alright
I could hold you and you could be mine for a while
Too many cars, not enough gas
Too many losers that try to get past
Too many addicts living to fast and going nowhere
She was a poet and a writer of songs
Stuck in the middle of a world gone wrong
Never going where she could belong but where she was chosen
I wish that we could go back in time
We were young and we were feeling alright
I could hold her and she could be mine for a while
Too many fools, not enough gold
Too many people that do what their told
Too many faces never get to grow old and I wonder
I wish that we could go back in time
We were young and we were feeling alright
I could hold you and you could be mine for a while
But the days turn to rain, and I just smile and refrain
She just called me insane but I just wasn't listening

Track Name: Stay
Threw my silver in a pile, thought about you all the while
turning in your absentee, ballot before leaving me
here to raise our daughter with the luck of random strangers
who will smile from time to time as they pass me in the aisle ways of the super market down the road from this town to that town you go
and go but you don't need to leave us though you're so damn good between the lines of comfort in the sand when I have you close at hand you run off with some other band of modern gypsies in a van who don't talk to each other with their headphones and computers just their biding sense of humor so that's why I have to say to you now
Darlin' won't you stay, darlin' must you always go away
When will you stay, stay....
If I had a nickel for each time that you plead guilty I would have a pile of silver that could dam up 50 rivers that you crossed in all the lower 48 states of mind anticipating ever driving further from your family who's ever waiting for your call or wondering if you or if some form of you is ever coming or if you'll just keep on running out the door to the next function I know that you love us but you love something above us and I don't know if it's smart to stick around waiting for someone who's always on their way to somewhere else can you hear me
Darlin' won't you stay, darlin' must you always go away
When will you stay, stay....
Track Name: Lucillia
I'm done pretending that I can be someone who's ascending all the ladders of this world but I got someone that I can hold onto and it's you yeah it's you
Guess I've grown up taking my sweet time maybe I've blown up all the states of my mind but you better believe me cause I got something that's true
Lucillia you got a hold of my heart
Lucillia don't keep it all inside
Lucillia we should stay friends for just a little while longer till it goes somewhere
I've got a feeling that I can't feel I've been wondering what's beyond that hill cause there's a freedom in losing myself in you
Lucillia you got a hold of my heart
Lucillia don't keep it all inside
Lucillia we should stay friends for just a little while longer till it goes somewhere
Track Name: Life Of Crime
My hear didn't break and it still keeps time
I feel a little foolish but i will be fine
It'll be a little while till these nerves unwind
My lungs are burning from the hurt inside
I could tell she meant business from the tears she cried
I could say I felt better you could say I lied
It's hard enough to live a life of crime
It's a very thin line that were walking on
A man needs love for his love is strong
This road is winding this road is long
She called me out in front of all our friends
She said I give you one, you would take 10
You'll be gone for the night then be back again
It's hard enough to live a life of crime
It's twice the wait to leave the past behind
Why live in a house when it is burning down
Why live in the city when you love the town
Why end a marriage in your wedding gown
It's a long way down to Refinery Road
The days are short the nights are cold
But it's all we got,
It's hard enough to live a life of crime
It's twice the wait to leave the past behind
Track Name: So Much In Tune
How could you be so much in tune that when you walk into the room everyone is looking at you as they realize they're not just in any room anymore
How could you be so much in tune that when you point outside at the moon everybody acts just like they've never seen it before
How you be so much how could you be so much in tune
Oh how could you be so much how could you be so much in tune
Melodicas and tambourines dresses out of history lifting up your elbows now because the sound and the rhythm haven't given you your wings
You counted all the tones in they sky 440 times whispered in the softest voice made with the strongest choice
How could you be so much how could you be so much in tune
Oh how could you be so much how could you be so much in tune
Your eyes catch the birth of the sun squeezing on your harmonium everybody's quiet now nobody remembers how to hate anything anymore
How could you be so much how could you be so much in tune
oh how could you be so much how could you be so much in tune
How could you be so much in tune
Track Name: Highway Is My Home
I've been walkin' round this little town stopping everything that stares me done but i'm leaving
The Highway is my home
I've been thinkin' bout your lovely kid but it's the blacktop that I truly miss and i'm moving
The highway is my home
Well it's a thousand miles to anywhere I want to be
It takes an open road a tank of gas for this boy to feel free
So don't cry baby cause it's in my vein I need the freedom of the open lanes when i'm by you
The highway is my home
Trains boats and planes well they just won't suffice
four or eight lanes sure would be nice cause I'm travelling
The highway is my home
I know you miss me but home just won't do
I know my leaving is just leaving with you but it's calling
The highway is my home
it's a thousand miles to anywhere I want to be
It takes an open road a tank of gas for this boy to feel free
Flagstaff Fallstaff it's all the same to me
I still love you baby but why can't you see I'm going
The highway is my home
I know it's dangerous but I'll take my chance
I need the freedom over romance so I'm moving on
The highway is my home

Track Name: Those Good Times
I know that I'm not supposed to be here right now
But i'm gonna walk your streets anyhow
Track Name: Begin
One more day till you're 23
They tried to tell you how your life was gonna be
They don't know about you
They don't know about you
All the used books and the light cigarettes
Gonna pack your things and move out west
They won't know where to find you
They won't know what to do
Hey don't lose yourself in the end
Hey just turn around and begin
Buy some new clothes and go have some fun
Sell your old clothes and stick out your thumb
It's gonna be a good ride
It's gonna be a good time
Over the mountains across Tennessee
Over the desert and Joshua Tree
It's gonna be a good time
It's gonna be a good life
Hey don't lose yourself in the end
Hey just turn around and begin
Always loneliness at night
Only hopefulness survives
when you don't realize that everyone is thinking about you
One more day till you're 23
They tried to tell you how your life was gonna be
They don't know about you
They don't know about you
Track Name: Baby Come Home
Sitting here late at night wondering where you might be
Probably just drinking with your friends oh that was the life that nearly killed me
Why shouldn't you but why couldn't you give me a call, call me right now
I know there was a couple of nights when I did you the same
I had you calling all around town cursing out my name
I did you wrong and before too long i was all alone
Baby come home baby come home right now
I need you for the rest of my life
Baby come home baby come home right now
I need you I need you
Sun's coming over the hill looks like a warning light
I want to pick up and drive until I feel all right
But I don't know where I would go and not still feel alone
Baby come home baby come home right now
I need you for the rest of my life
Baby come home baby come home right now
I need you I need you
