about

"Quest" is a pulsing bundle of energy which draws from bands such as Doves, The Strokes and Kings of Leon with a smidge of cheekiness ala AC/DC and 1970's British band, Slade. It's a song about youthful exploration, hope, failure and starting over.

lyrics

Lace 'em up and get your sweet shoes out onto the floor.
Loosen up as some other ones gather in a swarm.
Think what you'll say when you tell your story.
You were out on a quest to define your glory.
But you're left with empty pockets and frozen to the bone.

Helmet on, twist the throttle wide open and you're gone.
Round the curve, drop a gear, machine ready to burn.
Think what you'll say when you tell your story.
'Bout the quest you were on to define your glory.
But instead being left tearing leather on the stone.

Now eight miles out.
In another town.
With a heart that's ready to explode.
Checking fear at the door.
Turning left to explore.
With a heart that's ready to explode.

Take a breath, brush your hands, take a step to the side.
Look ahead, get your focus on, visualize.
Think what you'll say when you tell your story.
'Bout the quest you were on to define your glory.
Let the taste be the thing pushing you to decide.
