Left behind the hospital
Told himself blood and wine
Weren’t so different, so different at all

Held so tight, wiped the tears from my eyes
And told me our paths through life
Come together time after time

He came in from the east in a two-door-beat-in Ford
Got a position techin’ blood in an open-hearted ward
And there he met his gal, said she was all he’d ever need
He put away those childish things and he took down to a knee
Well in a year they’d had a son and in 7 had one more
He did everything he could, but he was restless at his core
One night he drank ‘til he was drunk out in the vineyard in the rain
He took a tumble in the mud, cursed his wife and walked away
But he didn’t turn his back, not the way that some men would
‘Cuz he was restless at his core, but he did everything he could

St. Van Cortlandt & the 101 Brooklyn, New York

St. Van Cortlandt & the 101 was created by singer/songwriter Daniel Van Cortlandt as a vehicle to explore home-made instruments, atypical song structures, and unique lyrical ideas.

As the band's lineup gradually came together, the sound of St. Van Cortlandt & the 101 developed beyond concise songs draped in experimental sound design into more colorful, grandiose, improvisatory rock'n'roll.
