about

Written and originally performed by Aran Epochal (Prague, Czech Republic). I met Adam on my first tour in Europe when I was opening up for Ceschi who brought me along. Adam is one of the primary reasons I am able to tour in Europe and especially in the Czech Republic. He has been one of my biggest supporters over these last several years, along with the label Silver Rocket. He is also a dear friend. He writes and sings in the Czech language and was kind enough to translate the lyrics for this into English and let me re-word a few things to help the flow in my native tongue. He wrote it about the end of his Father's life when he was unable to recognize anyone who came to visit him in the hospital. It is written to his wonderful wife Mahulena as a promise that he will always recognize her. The subject matter of this song really resonated with me in the time of my Father's decline in health and eventual death.

lyrics

I will recognize you
I fear not
At the end of the world where all truth lies in dust
I have my throne in the ICU I rule my days from there

I will recognize you
I fear not
The dragon soars when the light are cut off
Thousands of eyes and wrinkles are sleeping

I will recognize you
I know that
Among the shoe covers, the X-rays, the gas
Drifting apart - a coat, a frame, a piece

I will recognize you
I fear not
I’ll recognize you even after the last feast is done
The stories grow old in the empty tone of days

I will recognize you
I swear it
Born 1975 - punk’s not dead
Thousands of eyes and wrinkles are sleeping

I will recognize you
I fear not
At the end of the world where all truth lies in dust
