Beyond the Gray Sky

alternative rock alternative rock reggae 311

This song is an emotional outpouring about my best friend from high school, David Barker, who suddenly took his own life last year. Looking back reading his emails he alluded to a "cloud of darkness" in his writings. At the time, I read right past it and didn't even notice those words.

All I can say is don't be afraid to talk about it and try to be open if others are trying to reach out. Musically, this song started as instrumental demo that Tim made called "Jerrybird."

311 was formed in 1990 in Omaha, Nebraska, United States by singer/guitarist Nick Hexum, singer S.A. Martinez, guitarist Tim Mahoney, drummer Chad Sexton and bassist P-Nut. The band now resides in Los Angeles, California. 311 mix rock, rap, reggae and funk into their own unique sound. After years of consistent touring, 311 have developed a reputation as one of the hardest working, most influential and most entertaining live bands in the U.S. 311 have released ten studio albums Show more ...

Beyond the Gray Sky - 311

it is a gift i know
a moment of bliss that we hold
a firecracker flash of light then on
to the next plan soul remain
come along if you dare
it s gonna be that you re scared
lovely life i thank you
for the reason to see the pain through

light a candle for the dead
the wick is burning returning what we have
it s who we are
we ll reach you if you re
beyond the furthest star

don t give up the fight to stay alive
and even if
you have to
find the reason of another s pain
if they lose you
if not for your self
then those around who care
like i do
one day you ll see the clear blue

beyond the gray sky

light a candle...
the wick..
it s who we are...

one day you ll see the clear blue
beyond the gray sky

i can t believe you didn t call
what made you want to end it all
wasn t there something i should have tried
to help you see beyond the gray sky
