about

Brad Stock and the Atomic Clock Salt Lake City, Utah

The Atomic Clock is a mythic journey that starts with the rising of The Sun and ends with the setting of The Moon. It is an epic sojourn, a spiritual, emotional, and physical journey from the perspective of a man who has seen a thing or two.

Track Name: The Sun
See the Sun
Cross the mountain
The morning dew recedes.

Warm my face warm my family
His heat hails from the east

Feel the sun warm the shadows
The dark and cold retreat
Stars align
Moon will follow
Whats hiding underneath?
Track Name: Anxiety
Sitting on the floor, wondering if I should stay here
But the waters too cold, and there really ain't that much to do here
Mama said "you're gonna be a special star"
But I don't feel that way
At all

My heart is like a fist, my belly's like two pit bulls fighting
My mouth is spitting sand, and I can feel my chest is tightening
Mama said "you're gonna be a special star"
But I don't feel that way
At all

Take me to that place, take me to your golden meadow
Show me blazing suns, illuminating every freckle
Mama said "you're gonna be a special star"
But i don't feel much that way
At all, No no no no

It's just anxiety
It's just anxiety
Track Name: Chasing the Buddha
Passion flower opening at dawn
Gonna move on down to Oregon
Leave behind a trail of deadly sin
Finally listen to the voice within

It sounds like this…

Chasing the Buddha
Down
Till we meet again


Chasing the Buddha
Down
Till we meet again,
And I come to you, you’ll see it moving through me-
Yeah

Passion flower opening at dawn
Nothing left to do, she’s long, long gone
Just smoke a spliff and sail into the sky
Times like this no need to question why

Chasing the Buddha
Down
Till we meet again,
And I come to you, you’ll see it moving through me, Yeah
Track Name: Hoot 'n Holler, Annie
She was minding her business on the side of the road
Picking blackberries when she found a blue toe
It belonged to a man who was in big trouble
With three big boys and a brand new shovel

He was out for a walk, but they gave him a ride
They opened up the glove box said you get inside
He said what’d I do? They said brother, you know
You got a pink piggy squealing, and it has to go, so

Hoot ‘n’ Holler, Annie, run to your daddy,
Find the man with the badge and break it to him gently, now

They took him to a place where the grass is not green
Shined flashlights in his eyes said you’ve been real mean
To a sweet little girl, who is only sixteen.
You done tuckered out her heart and you broken her dreams

And you should know better ‘cuz you’re older than dirt
You’re guilty in the eye and there’s blood on your shirt
Jesus says he loves you and you’re gonna confess
Why you got her drunk then you tore off her dress so

(Repeat Chorus)

She put that old toe in a freezer bag,
She wore a Cheshire Cat grin and a trucker’s hat
Revenge is a dish that is best served cold,
She was to young and he was way to old

Annie call the cops now, you should prob’ly confess
But you look so happy in your green summer dress
Maybe he deserved it now, and maybe he don’t
Speak it to the preacher and hope that he won’t tell on

(Repeat Chorus)

Now he limps into the sun
Paid his debt to everyone
To every girl he sees
To every torn down tree

Now he limps into the sun
Paid his debt to everyone
To every torn down tree,
To every girl he sees, so…
Track Name: Incognito
See the Sun
Cross the mountain
The morning dew recedes.

Warm my face warm my family
His heat hails from the east

Feel the sun warm the shadows
The dark and cold retreat
Stars align
Moon will follow
Whats hiding underneath?
Track Name: Conspiracy of 2
Your hope is hanging by a rope
Your hope is hanging by a rope
They roll the dice it's a conspiracy of 2
They may not be sane
But they sure love yo

Your armors cracking under the weight
From so much life that just won't wait
Just roll the dice it's a Conspiracy of 2
They may not be sane but they sure love you

And you may think it’s funny
Who'd choose napalm over silly putty?

My heart ain't got a thing to say
To anyone who don't make the grade
I live alone But you get through to me when i'm stoned
They may not be sane but they sure love you
They may not be sane but they sure love you
Track Name: One of My Better Days
Didn't go to mass with a head full of mushrooms,
Didn't lose my music to a glitch in my Itunes
Didn't get bitten by a centipede
Didn't get evicted by a friend in need
