about

picard Eau Claire, Wisconsin

Everything about picard is somewhat bipolar. It was never intended to be, but is. The music is serious and heartfelt, their attitudes are not. The band is known for being sarcastic, easy going and constantly joking. Somehow out of that group comes something serious and gripping. It has been said that the members of picard have inner adults trying to escape. ... more

Track Name: Distending
Tomorrow will come
Led by the sun
It will light the way
For this path we’ve made
No matter if we’re ready or not
Is there something more
To all these things we’re searching for
Cuz I’m holding out
For something bigger
Than myself
Are there still things in this world worth dying for
Cuz I would kill for just one good damn reason

Tomorrow will come
Led by the sun
It will light the way
For this path we’ve made
No matter if we’re ready or not
Is there something more
To all these things we’re searching for
Cuz I’m holding out
For something bigger
Than myself
Are there still things in this world worth dying for
Cuz I would kill for just one good damn reason

Don’t look away now
I want you to see this
It might come crashing down
And I need a witness
So they believe it
When it rips me from these clouds

Cuz I’m holding out
For something bigger
Than myself
Are there still things in this world worth dying for
Cuz I would kill for just one good damn reason
Track Name: Doolin-Dalton
They were Doolin
Doolin-Dalton
High or low
It was the same
Easy Money
And faithless women
Redeye whiskey for the pain

Go down Bill Dalton it must
Be God’s will
Two brothers lying dead in
Coffeeville

Two voices call to you from
Where they stood
Lay down your law books now they’re
No damn good

You better keep on moving
Doolin-Dalton
Until your shadow sets you free
If you’re fast
And if you’re lucky
You will never see the hanging tree

The towns lay out across the dusty plains
Like graveyards filled with tombstones
Waiting for their names
Dealing death some men found their fame
Some just went stir crazy Lord, cuz nothing ever changed

Until Bill Doolin
Met Bill Dalton
He was working cheap
Just biding time
Then smiled and said I’m going
As he left his peaceful life behind
Track Name: Finally
My hands may break from carrying you
But that won’t stop me
From trying
No, I will keep on moving
Even with a blister on my soul
I’ll never stop when it comes to you
The day will come
When the rain will wash away
Any pain we still hold onto
Heaven sent you just a little too soon
Too soon to change me
It was long before you even knew
That you were part of me
Finally
We found something
Worth holding onto
And maybe this time we can
Keep it from crumbling
You’ve carried me on angels wings
And broken as they may be
You’ve become my everything
Oh why
This world may try to tear me from you
The only way it would happen
Is dying
No, I’ll keep believing even in a fight I cannot win
I’d go down burning for you.
The rain will come
And the wind will blow away
Any struggles we have my love
Heaven kept you just a little too long
So long it starved me
After all the damage we’ve been through
Still you were guarding me
Finally
We found something
Worth holding onto
And maybe this time we can
Keep it from crumbling
You’ve carried me on angels wings
And broken as they may be
You’ve become my everything
Oh why
Track Name: Lessons
The pieces of me
Are all gathering
At my Feet
And I can’t help but feel
I should know some fear
But the reasons are far from clear
So please forgive me

I never got my head around it
And I didn’t know the difference
I couldn’t quite put it together
Without some sort of reference
But now it’s too late
It’s way too late

But now I know
Oh, but now I know
Oh, I think I finally know

Everything is blurry
I can’t move my feet
I’m in a dream left behind
With rain replacing clear skies
And it washes my eyes
But it can’t clean the mess left inside

But now I know
Oh, but now I know
Oh, I think I finally know
Track Name: Ed
The view from up here
Was always nice
I could see you all down there
Living your lives
Colorful and warm

But it got cold up here long
Before I showed you winter
Because he never

Woke Up
This father of mine
And I stayed here

You brought me down
And showed me a new world
Then you tried like hell to
Make me one of you it
Was something I could never be

Then it got cold down here from
All of these evil stares where were you
Why couldn’t you
Save me
This love of mine
He never
Woke Up
This father of mine
I had to run

Drifting
Slowly
Down on you
All my love for you
I wanted you to

Save me
This love of mine
He never
Woke Up
This father of mine
I had to run
Track Name: Last Ones
Revel the calm
The end was here and gone
The streets are all empty and the
Buildings hollow from
Bleak destruction leaving scars
Where what once was us
But the world is still here
So we must
Get back up

This is no time to lose control
It seems somehow you’ve lost it all
There is no blood on your hands
So why can’t we just let it go

Revel the calm
Try to take it in
Maybe some patience will help us
Get through all of this
Just take your time
I know it’s looking grim
But you’re not alone anymore no
I’m right here

This is no time to lose control
It seems somehow you’ve lost it all
There is no blood on your hands
So why can’t we just let it go

I can feel your rage
Coming over me
Like a wave
Cold and hostile
My damage has been repaired
My destruction
Rebuilt
And replaced
Becoming something new

This is no time to lose control
It seems somehow you’ve lost it all
There is no blood on your hands
So why can’t we just let it go
Track Name: October
All proceeds will be donated to www.ALZ.org

I need to go home
Joe will be worried
If I am not there
I need to go home

There's no home to go to
And Joe's been gone for 20 years
The leaves are falling again
It seems familiar, yet so different
You don't deserve this.
And you won't remember
I promise that I won't forget

One moment you come back
And all this Is worth it
The driving
The anger
And the pain

It makes no
Difference what we wish
It won't change anything
So I'll keep
This One Moment of you
I'll keep it for me
I'll hold it for you
Track Name: Little Nixon
Little Nixon used to think about the things he never should
Hurricanes and tidal waves
The end of the world
He was sure he had a way to save us all
But he didn’t have the words
All he could do was draw

Page after page
To try and explain
But no one would listen No
They would just say

You’re too small to save the world
Why don’t you play with all the boys and girls
Those things might come someday, but
For now run and play

Little Nixon wasn’t so
Little anymore
He learned to keep quiet or he’s be locked up for sure
What a way to say thank you
For trying to save us
Day after day
He had to refrain
Cuz no one would listen no
No, this is the end

There’s no need to save the world
Humanity gone would cure the earth
Shaking us off like a disease
I wish I could leave

When the angels are all gone
And your souls are being erased
You will be judged the way that you did me
It can’t come soon enough

To take away all this pain
Just you wait and see
You will all see
That your cruelty
It bought you passage
To your own end
Oh God you did this to yourselves
There’s no way to save the world
You’ve all been so damn absurd
Just one minute of your time to take me serious
Track Name: The Effort
I could lay down and die, but that wouldn’t be enough for you
My words are lazy on the wind.
Words have gone unheard
By You
Perhaps if I just sit and think I could come up with something
More to do
Maybe we could just forget
All the stupid shit
We’ve been through

Or is it all a waste of time
Breathing you in is making me die

You’re relentless
On the way that you rip me up
Into pieces
You don’t even know what you’ve done
Maybe you just
Don’t care
Track Name: Passing
Close your Eyse
Close them tight
Cuz dreams are all you have tonight
Call out a name
One you know well
Scream it out loud and then say farewell
The Sun has set It's last time
You'd better turn 'round
And say goodbye
Now take my hand
Come with me
We've got so much more left to see
Now don't you cry
Because you've died
