Lyrics
Riding with the Son

Father and Son
A balancing of everything.
How does this feel?
I show you whats real.
I try to make you understand.
Father to Son.
Son to Man

Struck by a stone
Of clarity it comes to me.
Father to son has come undone

Hey, hey!
Did He tell you it would play this way?
Did you think it'd go this far?
Father to Son.
Father to Son.

Pride in the fall.
Is that the lot you've given me?
Or did I make the call?
I see a tree.
One for You and one for me.
Father to Son.
Son to man.

Hey, hey!
Did He tell you it would play this way?
Father to son.

Hey, hey.
Hey, hey.
Father to Son.
Follow the Son.

Father to Son.
A balancing of everything.
You showed me whats real
You tried to make me understand...

great melody is the first thing i noticed, cool harmonies too. what'd you do to your sax ~3:15, artificial or real doubling? sounds cool whichever.

Harmonies had to be there like that - ya ever just hear something and know it has to be there? I doubled the sax track and added wah wah just a touch. I've always dug that sound when not used too heavily...

A most powerful, yet delicate masterpiece, chordwork is delightful...supports the vocals like a big plateau at the valley's edge, dark foliage, plenty of shady spots to chill...you gentz are work this groove to perfection, every note is earcandy and this is so different

Yeah! Nice job guys ... nicely composed and performed. Love when Andy's sax comes in ... vocals crisp and clear with a good harmony balance ... is that two sax's at about 2:13 ... nice. Keys are delicate and smooth ... drums are ... well, real!
Enjoyed the melody.

I love the haunting and brooding mood of this, the organ/synth hovering throughout, delicious sax break with it's gorgeous fills -so tasty- Drums and bass gently guiding it all along. Vocals sitting nicely in the mix. Loved the song, thoughtfully written. Seemed to finish too soon, always a sign that your really enjoying it.

I really enjoyed this one and especially Jack's involvement. Scott's drums are always the best and KTB never fails me. Jack and I had many phone conversations and countless texts bouncing. I borrowed some effects from Ronnie Laws on the sax... I hope he doesnt mind.

Cool arrangement
I am particularly drawn to the simplicity of the band arrangement, that great sax solo (is it a plug-in?), and the absolute clarity of the vocal line.,Quite a wonderful production.
