Fort Frances

8 albums

At first glance, you probably wouldn’t know that Fort Frances is an independent band.
Bands that do it all on their own aren’t typically the first to earn the praise of national radio outlets, prominent TV personalities and respected bloggers alike. They aren’t often the ones at the top of the “Bands You Need to Know Right Now” lists. You might not expect them to be turning heads at festivals across the country and earning comparisons to artists like Wilco, Ryan Adams and Modest Mouse.
But this trio from Chicago has managed to check all these to-dos off their list while remaining independent in every sense of the word. They produce their own records. They book their own shows. They write their own expectations. In an uncertain music business, the band is making sure that they can continue to make music with heart on their own terms.
Still, independence comes with a price tag. This sense of self-control can chip away at the most important element of any band: their ability to create. When the touring miles get longer and the business decisions get bigger, the songs somehow find their way into the backseat.
“Breathing Room” captures the band as they push pause and return their creative energy to the steering wheel. As the band continues work on a full-length for the spring of 2014, this is an early glimpse of where they’re going. One thing is clear, too: the three voices behind Fort Frances are exploring new territory - territory where the edges are a bit rougher than their polished indie-folk past, where the volume knobs are a bit higher, where the newfound space leaves room for songs that will continue to make Fort Frances stand out in a landscape that used to be reserved for bands with big budgets and big names standing behind them.

Lyrics:

I’ve been waiting on fireworks The kind that make the heavens hurt I’ve been counting up reasons to explode Oh oh oh my god When the future arrives, will we all applaud? Will we believe everything we saw? Or will our minds be blown? Into a million stars floating far above the earth In a new kind of universe The difference between space and time Is the product of the memories in your mind Add up all you ever learned, then divide By all that you have left behind All the closed doors Is the story of the starting of the third world war Dod won’t pick sides, she won’t keep score So we won’t ask for more We won’t settle for less, we’ll pray for the best And dig a hole to the middle of the earth And find a new kind of universe Is tomorrow really so far from reach I can hear the engine humming I do believe That all these roads can turn to gold When the wheels slow down and your feet get cold Forget everything that you’ve ever been told About the way the world should unfold for you Tell me what will life be worth In a new kind of universe Tell me what will life be worth In a new kind of universe Tell me what will life be worth In a new kind of universe Point me to the spotlight Help me get the facts right All the pieces of this puzzle fit together like a mystery If the truth can’t be found down here on earth Let’s build a new kind of universe

Double Take (Explicit Lyrics) The Front Page Of The Modern Age
03:16

Lyrics:

Take a second Take two Do a double take Let your brain unglue Tie the minutes up Like the laces on your shoes With a double knot To make sure you stay confused I been praying for good luck But the world don’t seem to give a fuck About which way is up Or which was is down The rabbit hole Better known as your soul I’ve been losing sleep Over what I cannot control My lord There’s always a little bit further to go Well I never Seem to keep it together I dream a lot about forever But at the end of the day I wake up wondering whether All my debts and my debtors Will ever read this letter About forgiving, forgetting and moving along They say you got to think fast In these fast times But the faster you move The sooner you fall in line And the harder it becomes To change your mind Your business Mind your step Mind your manners Take a breath Let it slow Now do your best To imagine a tomorrow where you can lay to rest All the worries about win or lose All the headlines of fake news All the walls we never managed to break through Take a second Take two Well I never Seem to keep it together I dream a lot about forever But at the end of the day I wake up wondering whether All my debts and my debtors Will ever read this letter About forgiving, forgetting and moving along If all I ever knew was wrong How do I know where to go from here?

Lyrics:

Follow the light Coming in the window this morning Don’t read the news Don’t pick up the phone The ghosts in the stars Have been issuing warnings Of the trouble ahead In the great unknown We can’t wait for love to figure out how to find us Among a million hearts standing in the crowd Life gets easily lost when you’re looking for the answers Who knows where the world goes a thousand years from now Let’s move north of the city And turn the radio on Listen to the dreams and the doubts and the reds and the blues Echoing among these highway songs We got to ready before the days get heavy Before one thousand years have come and gone We can’t wait for love to figure out how to find us Among a million hearts standing in the crowd Life gets easily lost when you’re looking for the answers Who knows where the world goes a thousand years from now

Lyrics:

did your mother warn you about california the closer you get to the sea the more the earth shakes under your feet there’s a fault line inside my brain runs parallel to the walk of fame all the stars line up one by one waiting to burn out beneath the sun put on your fancy shoes bite your lower lip and hum the blues may the western wind carry me and you when the whole world goes to hell send a message to all our friends if we never make it back again let them know we wish them well forward all our calls to this desert hotel we may feel ourselves sinking in the sand as history traces the palms of our hands time will tell truths that we can’t understand so put your faith on high alert do you believe in heaven or do you believe in hollywood? all the billboards promised us something so good if jesus forgives and drugs can help us forget maybe the past meant nothing at all put on your fancy shoes bite your lower lip and hum the blues may the western wind carry me and you when the whole world goes to hell send a message to all our friends if we never make it back again let them know we wish them well forward all our calls to this desert hotel tell me where do you go when you’re looking to forget the world and let it forget you you always seem to know how to read mind, where to find the time and what to leave behind put on your fancy shoes bite your lower lip and hum the blues may the western wind carry me and you when the whole world goes to hell send a message to all our friends if we never make it back again let them know we wish them well forward all our calls to this desert hotel

Lyrics:

You won’t find the devil in the details Or in the fine print That makes your eyes squint He is listing his services for sale On the front page Of the modern age Stories of jesus christ and climate change, human rights and outer space There are wars That cannot be won The damage is done, the lines are drawn, the factories closed, the robots turned on Now every minute feels automatic All the headlines blur together, stock markets, the five day weather The forecast calls for truths to be told Before attention spans grow too cold To make it through the day, if you find history don’t throw it away Let the past Stand inside the light Cause the devil is not hiding in the details You got to look him in the eyes And put up a fight Raise your hands, boys and girls If you’re worried about the end of the world Turn your eyes from the tv screen that plays reruns of American dreams When did it get so hard to wake up? I’m searching high and low for hope and truth that shine in the fantasy of youth No matter how the years may weigh us down Open your eyes, say a prayer for everyone and everywhere Now stare straight into the sun The big one ain’t here yet Our work is not done

All I Ever Knew Was Wrong The Front Page Of The Modern Age

Lyrics:

I used to think I knew the answers Now I can’t be quite so sure These billboards sell nothingness, from the highways they blow a kiss All the exit signs start to blur I want to get off, I’m tired of trying And waking up in this ghost town dream I want to get off, I’m tired of lying To this holy rolling, god fearing machine How many roads can one man follow, how many truths can one man swallow How many times can he sing the same sad song? How many lies will I believe before I finally see All I ever knew was wrong I used to wait, I used to count the hours I used to think that time would not pass me by But all the corners in all these towns among all these roads that circle around Are looking back at me as they wave goodbye Where to next, I need to understand Why tomorrow looks just like the day before What’s the world got left, I need to know Tell me what the hell the world’s got in store How many roads can one man follow, how many truths can one man swallow How many times can he sing the same sad song? How many lies will I believe before I finally see All I ever knew Can disappear And fall behind Maybe I’m not here I’m in another life All is quiet All is calm All I’ve known Has all been wrong How many roads can one man follow, how many truths can one man swallow How many times can he sing the same sad song? How many lies will I believe before I finally see All I ever knew was wrong All I ever knew was wrong

Take a look through the lens Our lives play at the wrong speeds Too quick to catch up with What they truly need Nobody really knows If we are moving Or if the light is reflecting an illusion We are stars in silent movies The crowd can see right through me They know every thought on my brain They know your heart is racing faster Looking for what’s after The credits roll, the world goes insane Every day in history We’re writing mysteries About where life will lead If I had the answers, I’d tell you so Wander back through time Find your days inside a frame The distance makes it feel different The closeups look the same, Nobody even knows If we are even moving Or if the light is reflecting an illusion We are stars in silent movies The crowd can see right through me They know every thought on my brain They know your heart is racing faster Looking for what’s after The credits roll, the world goes insane Every day in history We’re writing mysteries About where life will lead If I had the answers, I’d tell you so We are stars in silent movies The crowd can see right through me They know every thought on my brain They know your heart is racing faster Looking for what’s after The credits roll, the world goes insane Every day in history We’re writing mysteries About where life will lead If I had the answers, I’d tell you so

Forget philosophy Let’s be the stars in a book no one will ever read With spaces too small and a plot too big To understand how we fit in, where we might land Time lives inside a burning house Oh, let’s be anonymous Oh, we can hide, hide, hide, hide away From the worry, from the world Let’s go underground Don’t make a move, don’t make a sound We can hide, hide, hide, hide away The borders of everything that I have ever seen They’re blurring together, They’re tilting a ladder toward the past Where the bad luck and the bad dreams can’t last When you put them all behind you I hope this song will remind you Of a certain place and a certain time and a certain frame of your mind When your heart was made of second chances Don’t confuse a memory of who you were with what you’ll be You will get out on your own You will forget the numbers that dial you home Oh, let’s be anonymous Oh, we can hide, hide, hide, hide away From the worry, from the world Let’s go underground Don’t make a move, don’t make a sound We can hide, hide, hide, hide away No one needs to know our No one needs to know our No one needs to know our name

You, you’ve been looking for a road Where you can wear someone else’s shoes All of the minutes that we wasted They’re on display in a museum booth We are moving through our lives The way the light moves through the morning Fading in and out of grey Disappearing without warning I, I am sending you the best of luck May the world be waking up Right by your side tonight Wherever you may be Send me a letter from somewhere I won’t recognize Tell me tales of how you became a hero in paradise We are moving through our lives The way the light moves through the morning Fading in and out of grey Disappearing without warning I, I am sending you the best of luck May the world be waking up Right by your side tonight Wherever you may go you’ll find Something better than you left behind The past will always be a dear friend Even when you do your best to shed your skin Your mind takes pictures of everywhere you’ve been Everything that’s lost can be found again

There is a time bomb In the shotgun seat with the dome light on Did you see the world eroding Did you hear the day exploding Into the night you thought had been forgotten But it's still inside the rearview Where you are holding on to everywhere you ever knew So let's lose our minds while the city is sleeping Let's lose count of the troubles we're keeping This is not a wake up call This is when you throw your fate against the wall Everything, everything is starting to make Everything, everything is starting to make sense It won't be long, it won't be long, it won't be long Before we find our way through the door There is a ghost town 100 years worth of falling down Where every room in every house Every word out of every mouth They warn you how to Keep your heartsteady when tomorrow glues itself to The past you thought you outgrew but everything lasts Now I can't stop my feet from shaking Now I can't stop the world from waking Up to find that I lost my mind Somewhere along the way Everything, everything is starting to make Everything, everything is starting to make sense It won't be long, it won't be long, it won't be long Before we find our way through the door

Lyrics:

The bar is closing down On the north side of this nowhere town We wait softly as the world starts to move Traffic hums, the stoplights dim The morning after all your skin Tell me is it even love if you don’t take it with you when you leave Everything's gone, everything's gone Everything's gone faster than we planned May the sun find, may the sun find May the sun find its way to where we stand A decade laid before my eyes Strangers pass the highway signs I don’t need time, I need someone to take me home I traded in my travelling clothes for answers I learned years ago I drowned all my maps in a river of kerosene Chorus We are nothing more, we are nothing less Than skin and bones I know we’ve be warned Somedays are best left alone Our love is enough to cover cities in the dust Of all we’ve done wrong Come on let’s give history something to sing about When we’re long gone

Tell me did you ever think we’d make it this far? Remember the maps I stretched out on the kitchen floor I heard you ask where’ve you been, who have you loved before These questions are nothing, by now we should know Yes we should Chorus When I saw you leaving, nothing in your eyes There’s someone out here who needs you And you turn your head and sigh When I saw you leaving, you never made a sound When I saw you falling down I saw you falling down x3

You wore your mother's smile and your velvet dress You wrote the past clean the day he left Everyone I know looks for love to feel young again I got a hard earned heart I got a hard earned heart Tell me can you take me in All the faces fading in between Out of back seat windows up on TV screens Everyone I know looks for love to feel young again Chorus Everywhere I turn, everything I burn All that I needed I know I can’t have Breaking like the sun, sleeping like a gun Waiting to go off on my past If you know me now like you knew me then Tell me will you ever let me in For all the minds that I lost tonight I feel gone but I feel alright I got a hard earned heart I got a hard earned heart

If The Ocean Runs Dry The Atlas

Lyrics:

Meet me on the coast If you heart won’t take me the tide surely will If the ocean runs dry We can sink to the bottom where the days stand still Come on, let me waste away Come on, let me waste away That’s no way to love x3 Meet me on the run If your heart won’t take me the road surely will When the streets are all gone There’s a ride in my mind but my feet just stand still Chorus If the ocean runs dry And I swallow my word If the ocean runs dry Will you leave me behind Will you leave me, will you leave me Will you leave me behind Oh no that’s no way to love someone who gives you what you need now x3 Oh no that’s no way to love someone

Losing You The Atlas
03:52

Lyrics:

I tried for years to reach you What will it take to teach you Everyone here needs someone to hold But tell me just how far in we’ve gotten ourselves darling Do hearts grow up or do hearts grow old? How did love cause this much trouble? Whatever may I do? When I’m waking up just to see double Yes I am, I’m losing you Leave me standing alone now If you can’t pick up the phone how will I ever find a way through? But tell me just how far in we’ve gotten ourselves darling Will hearts grow up and forgive all they knew Chorus You should know You should know The sooner you leave, the sooner you go

These years will pass now Memories turn into nobody’s song I hope he treats you good I hope you found more than you’re asking for I hope you found more than you’re asking for These years will pass now People will change as they always do And I know I’ll move along I hope I found more than I’m asking for I hope I found more than I’m asking for I’ll take all I can And keep all I see Give me something I can lose Give me something I can leave I hope we found more x11

The Ghosts Of California The Atlas
04:03

Lyrics:

Tell me what it takes to remember Tell me what it takes to be good again Seven years running trying to find the ocean Now the wind whispers, “take me home my friend” These are the ghosts of California Voice drowning in the sea It’s a good year for leaving It’s a good year for you and me Build us a home made for heroes Build us a boat to find the stars Watch the hillsides burn, the saddest kind of sunset Now the tide is crying, now it can’t escape these scars Chorus Tell me what it takes to remember Tell me, tell me what it takes to find our way Seven years running trying to find the ocean Now we’re standing on the shore without a word to say These are the ghosts of California Screaming songs that no one knows It’s a good year for leaving It’s a good year for letting go It’s a good year for leaving It’s a good year for letting go

White Roses The Atlas

Lyrics:

I have climbed rows of houses Waited nowhere, prayed for gold I cared for you the only way I learned how Loved you so hard that I had to let go I know everyone changes So I won’t beg you to stay May you always know where you’re going And may white roses line the way Remember the nights we stayed out until dawn Wasted and tired from our five dollar dreams We screamed at the cities, three stories below Singing take all you want and just leave our hearts clean Chorus Love be simple, time be kind Wherever you’re going, keep me on your mind x2
