Clifton Mills Clifton Mills you are buried on this hill, Clifton Mills you were killed and buried on this hill, Clifton Mills, Clifton Mills you are buried on this hill, Clifton Mills you were killed, Clifton Mills. You were dead when they found you, your friends lie day around you, Clifton Mills you were killed Clifton Mills It was 1862 when your Ma said bye to you It was 1863 when you joined this infantry It was early in July Comin' home alive Was for someone's son but not for Clifton Mills

Long ships move fast Viking heroes have The following weapons Helmet, shield, and sword in hand Viking writing called Runes, they wrote on stones These ancient runes are old as times unspoken languages These viking heroes in my head King Olaf, Eric the Red, and Igar the Boneless These viking heroes in my head Drink from skulls bury their dead Norwegian Moses Queen Victoria Portrayed vikings as cruel Their legacy was stained By fascist Nazi imagery Longships and Knars Could sail against the wind Oh they could navigate the open sea And the narrow stream (Chorus) When I feel alone, I feel alone, I feel like (3x) Expanding to the North With a battle axe and torch When I feel medieval (Chorus)

It is the breakers that take the surfers It is the waiters that serve the wine It is the speakers that wake the sleepers The base stealers who take the signs All good things will take time It's the turnpike that takes me back It is the sherpas who take the climbers And the burkas that shield our eyes It is the fighters who aim sidewinders And the riders who wait in lines All good things will take time It's the turnpike that takes me back The operator will take your request.

about

"Here I Am" is the 4th full length album from the NJ indie-rock/Americana band, The Successful Failures – a 12 song barrage of roaring, kicking, indie rock fun! The 12 new songs penned by singer/guitarist Mick Chorba (formerly of well-loved NJ garage rock band, Dipsomaniacs) are about fallen Civil War heroes, shark attacks, Vikings, the rise of new world leaders, and surviving the NJ Turnpike: the typical off-kilter subject matter the band has become know for. This album is all about the rock - blanketed with sweet harmonies and hook-laden melodies and guitar riffs. The Successful Failures will play a series of shows and live performances in support of "Here I Am".

about

The Successful Failures Trenton, New Jersey

"The first thing you should know about The Successful Failures is that any attempt to plug them into one genre or another is very much a fool’s errand. Hailing from Trenton, N.J., the band deftly combines Americana, Pop, Rock, and enough of a dusting of Bluegrass that serves as an appetizer to the main course without overwhelming the entire meal." - July 2020, Rock is the New Roll ... more
