about

If you can listen to all 11 tracks of "None of the Above", you can pretty much endure any trials and tribulations you may encounter in life. From the somewhat askew mind of Parts Adrift singer/songwriter Eric Livingston, comes a unique blend of songs that sound a lot like music.

Work it Out
Lyics by Eric Livingston

Over Under, Oh well (Feeling we can work it out)

Hey, we all want to know. They think we won't know.

Over-angered blunder (feeling we can work it out)
Out of rhythm for now (feeling we can work it out)

Waves of awakening. Stave off empty words.

Over-angered blunder (feeling we can work it out)
Out of rhythm for now (feeling we can work it out)

Lyrics by Eric Livingston

I know there are things that you want me to say...
Sweet nothings are only made to betray
Give me an inch and you know that I'll take the mile...
But fallin' in love had never been my style

I know that when things get hard, words get rude and it all looks blue, you won't desert me....I won't desert you.

No man had ever been so wrong...
To think that hope had long since gone.
I gave her an inch and she took one million miles....
But fallin' in love had never been her style.

Fallin' in love had never been our style....
Track Name: Push Me
Push Me
Lyrics by Eric Livingston

Don't mean to speak my mind
With thoughts of wasted time
It seems you've had your fill
Let's see how far you will.....go...

The odds are hard enough
Don't try and call my bluff
With words that eat my will
Next time I won't stand still...No....

You might just push me..You might just push me..You might just push me away (Rinse and Repeat)
Track Name: Realize
Realize
Lyrics by Eric Livingston

All grown up, who am I?
One of three, you gave life
Where to now? On our own..
Hope we’ve made it worth your while
And when those dreaded days do come
I know I won’t be the only one
To think of how you shined
And kept us all in line

Will we wake up
Will we Realize
How you raised us
And opened up our eyes

No regrets, not a one
Kept it simple, had our fun
I wouldn’t trade with anyone..
Somehow those dreaded days will come
And what will people say
Of those that paved our way

Will they wake up
Will they Realize
How you raised us
And opened up our eyes
Will we wake up
Will we Realize
How you shaped us
And made us feel all right…..

I heard there is an end
The pain and the suffering will all go away
I'm sure there is an end
But not like you told me with fictitious stories
You think your heaven sent
And I wish that were true

Don't even waste my time
With high goals that you can't reach
Your bait is falling off the line
Along with the things you preach

How long until the end?
Your good-book intentions are wearing on me.
I hope you're there my friend
We'll see what we see..

Will it be heaven or hell?
Or somewhere in between?
Will it be heaven or hell?
Only in your dreams...........
Only in your dreams
Only in your dreams

Don't even waste my time
With high goals that you can't reach
Your bait is falling off the line
Along with the things you preach

You think you're heaven sent...
You could have fooled me.

Lyrics by Eric Livingston

Late at night..all alone.
Feels right..letting go.
Look around..all these walls.
Dirty brown..6 feet tall.

Aiming high, laying low
Underground..nobody knows
Aiming high, laying low
Too late now..nothing to show.

Head down below..one of the millions.
Break down the walls. Watch it unfold.

Get in line..heed the call.
Color-blind, yes to a fault.
Wait and see..latency.
When in doubt, don't do more harm.

Aiming high, laying low
Underground..nobody knows
Aiming high, laying low
Too late now..nothing to show.

Lyrics by Eric Livingston

Out of the womb, I came to play.
I eat you up along the way
I'm always happy on the road
Out on the road, no need for brakes

If you wanna drive, I bet we go all day
But if you wanna stay, how could I go alone?
Now if you whine all day, I'll have to move along.
There are better ways, but if I need to...

I'm not too old, why lay to waste?
I said before, I came to play.
Well now you watch me clean the soul
of all these thoughts we need to throw away.

If you wanna drive, I bet we go all day
But if you wanna stay, how could I go alone?
Now if you whine all day, I'll have to move along.
There are better ways, but if I need to...

If you whine all day, I gotta move along.
There are better ways, but if I need to...

Ballad of Barnabas
Lyrics by Eric Livingston

To blame all your faults on yourself, is shame.
Head is low. Too far gone to enjoy the rain.
Heavy weights on your back, as you beg for more.
Going South on a track that was meant for North.

You walk in the dead of night. You walk in the dead of night. You won't see the daylight... no more.

Below is a past that is hard to fade. Building walls, just to mask what once was the pain.
Seeing ghosts in the lights of the cars that pass.
Treading lightly now, in a future that cannot last.

You walk in the dead of night. You walk in the dead of night. You won't see the daylight... no more.

(and so on....)
Track Name: You Rode
You Rode
Lyrics by Eric Livingston
Copyright 2016

Get up or lay down.
You got it coming. No way around.
You're on your way (on your way)
Aint nothin' easy, Aint nothin' free.
You're in a rut. You dig too deep.
You're on your way (on your way)
You gotta go, You gotta see.
It's in your nature, You have to flee.
You're on your way (on your way)


All the way, you rode.....

No simple reason. No simple rhyme.
It's never-ending. Just take your time.
You're on your way (on your way)
So saddle up and make it last. Then all your worries go fading fast.
You're on your way (on your way)
The drive is soothing. The air is pure. Before you know it, you cleared the storm
You're on your way (on your way)

All the way, you rode.....

Living the Dream
(livingeel-Copyright 2012)

All alone, you were dreamin' infinity.
It's long gone....
Your hands, tied to the reality
of young love...

All along, you were only living the dream (x2)

Always, sneaking 'round in his head....
Pulling him away from the dead.

All along, you were only living the dream (x2)....

lead

All along, you were only living the dream..
All along, you were only living the dream
All along, he was only living your dream
All along, I was only dreaming in vain.....
