about

DEEP is Brunk's classic, dark rock, thematic, montage masterpiece.

This ground-breaking record magnificently blends tone poetry, choral arrangements, astounding stream-of-consciousness lyrics, a southern black preacher man, fury, hope, acoustic guitar snippets, indie rock, political/social commentary, lush harmonies, and infectious grooves.

DEEP hearkens back to something from the 60's (think Beatles, Cat Stevens, or Moody Blues), taps a bit of The Cure and Radiohead, yet pushes forward into its own uncharted, mystic waters.

Open your eyes and your heart....and dive in DEEP...

Track Name: Moten
Verses from Chapter 1 of The Book of Ecclesiastes in the Christian Bible.
Track Name: Under The Sun
the newsman said another cold war is coming
I barely remember the first one at all
but how can a war be anything other than cold?

i sat down and read the obituaries today
seems like the same names there day after day
perhaps if i'd known them i'd notice their passing away

and there's nothing new
there's nothing under the sun
it's just another day
and what have you done?

i opened a new package of razors today
my eyes look red and my hair's turning gray
i could start my own talk show but i really got nothin to say

the nations will rise, and nations will fall
and philosophers will try to make sense of it all
but i just want to be sure and be home whenever you come to call

and there's nothing new
there's nothing under the sun
it's just another day
and tell me, what have you done?
Track Name: Hanging Onto Nothing
Is it possible to speak words
That do not resonate?
Can you ever be heard
With terms that complicate my soul?

You and I are jagged edges
Piece by piece we come
Far apart and far so near
Dreaming, dreaming in the sun

Now I'm hanging onto nothing
Where I once held you
Hanging onto nothing
Lost in your lovely eyes of blue

You think that you have seen me
Precariously vain
Counter-culture attitude
Furious disdain

My ideas are not yours
My words come disjointed
Visions now of grandeur
All so disappointed

Now I'm hanging onto nothing
Where I once held you
Hanging onto nothing
Lost in your lovely eyes of blue
Track Name: Man in the Box
Boxes for houses, boxes for cars
And rockets in boxes are headed for Mars
Toothbrush technology races ahead
While dental hygienists are asleep in their beds
Fuzzy distortion and dissonance too
A deluge of discord, dysfunctional blue
Revolving and rotating spokes on the wheel
Three-D confusion till nothing seems real

One day at a time, sweet Jesus
That’s the way we travel this road
Somewhere subsurface a ticking
Of a time bomb that’s set to explode
Ticking and clicking and marking the time
Pacing and racing toward destiny’s dime
Incessantly the sweet motherlode
But the day is coming when the man in the box…. will explode

Boxes of memories, boxes of pain
Boxes for losses and shoes and gain
Microchip madness, pass the baton
Starships and shuttles pressing beyond
Toilet bowl cleaners and an overweight pet
And mountains and mountains and mountains of debt
But the man in the box he don’t remember his name
He’s watching and waiting and playing the game
Track Name: This Is When
Tattered creases
Shattered pieces of my life
I see myself
With no one else in my life

I wander in the darkness
I stumble in the black
Consumed by all the demons
And the virtues that I lack

This is when you know it's over
This is when you know you're through
This is when the curtain falls
In darkness all around you

Other souls are tangents
Along my lonely track
They cannot see my agony
Buried in the black
Track Name: Planet You
Orbits come and orbits go
But you’re the only planet I know
The golden orb is breaking through
Copernicus revolving you…uh huh

Touch down on your surface, see
The many sights awaiting me
You take me down, you eat me up
Like barley, hops and buttercup…uh huh

Everything we say, everything we do
Revolves around the planet I call YOU
Everywhere we go, everything we do
The universe revolves around planet YOU

Incessantly through your atmosphere
Absolutely crystal clear
I strike your surface helplessly
I’m caught in zero gravity…uh huh

Out of chaos, into clear
You’re universal center, dear
Solar system crashing down
Black hole baby on the ground…uh huh
Track Name: Broken Hearts
On the streets tonight you can find us
Racing back and forth through the dark
We squeal our tires out on the road
And blast the radio to hide a broken heart
Broken heart, broken heart, a broken heart

On the streets tonight you will find us
We run like a pack of losers through the dark
How ‘bout a dance, can we buy you a drink
It’s not what you think, we’re just trying to hide a broken heart
Broken heart, broken heart, a broken heart

Bro--------------ken hearts----------------
Bro--------------ken hearts----------------
Bro--------------ken hearts----------------
Bro--------------ken hearts----------------

On the streets tonight you will find us
Searching desperately through the dark
For someone somewhere
For someone to really care for our broken hearts
Broken hearts, broken hearts, our broken hearts
Track Name: Disappear
I just want to say something never heard before
I just want a piece of glory; I want something more
This world is filled with souls of innocence and despair
Grasping hands and rubber bands wildly through the air

And I look into your eyes
Where the stars and the stripes are clear
Another mile, your crooked smile
I think I’ll disappear……think I’ll disappear
I think I’ll disappear…..think I’ll disappear
……..

I spent my life running from my deep regrets
Traded in the curtain for what’s behind my innocence
We are the sum of our parts and random events
Fate and chance, anticipated accidents

And I look into your eyes
Where the stars and the stripes are clear
Another mile, your crooked smile
I think I’ll disappear……think I’ll disappear
I think I’ll disappear…..think I’ll disappear
Track Name: Don't Mock (This Tortured Point of View)
there's nothing like the early morning hours
the blackest night in all its glory powers
out on the streets see the spirits sailing
so incomplete, hear the madman wailinggggggggg
and then silence

don't mock this tortured point of view
one day it may beat you black and blue
don't mock this tortured point of view
don't you know that it's lurking deep inside of you?

you drive your car, you're on a dead end street
you're battle-scarred, you've got blisters on your feet
but you smile and make believe you're flying
but all the while, your helpless soul is dying
dying....and then silence

don't mock this tortured point of view
one day it may beat you black and blue
don't mock this tortured point of view
don't you know that it's lurking deep inside of you?

there but for the grace of god go i.....
Track Name: There Was A Time
i remember stories that i first heard from you
about your daydreams and your plans
and i remember thinking that if i helped them come true
that you might see me as i am

and there was a time
when i was here
and you were there
and i swear
that i so believed in you

and there was a time
that i could see
that you and me
were meant to be
oh, i know that our love was true
Track Name: Back To Me
i see crystal in your eyes
i feel you mesmerize me

across the raging sea
you'll come back to me
Track Name: Night Falls Down / Unchanted
I try to find the words to say what I feel
But my words can’t reveal what I feel
When I look into your eyes there’s a deepness that I see
And I hold you tenderly in my dreams

The wind blows against the window where I stand
And I press my weary hand against the glass
I keep so much within my soul where no one sees
Like a child who hides his face behind a mask

And even though I’m loving you with all of my soul
Circumstances are beyond my control
I’m so in love with you and you don’t even know
And the world turns around
And the night just falls down on me

The road is filled with leaves and they’re swirling in the wind
And you’re waving to your lover as he (she) leaves
I turn my collar up with gray clouds in the sky
And I swear I saw some snow there on the breeze
