Gatherers – What If I Can’t (Live from Bad Racket Recording Studio)
Gatherers a band hailing from New Jersey (ten minutes outside New York City but whose counting) stopped by Bad Racket Studio in Cleveland, Ohio and recorded a song from their album Caught Between a Rock and a Sad Place. The song they performed is called What If I Can’t and they sure did jam on it. If you get confused yes, they did used to be called Gatherer, but had to change their name for legal reasons.

You can find the song here:
Where’s hope when half the time you are dying to give up and give in to real life?
All the maps indicate it’s time to go home.
Or do we rally on until the end ignoring what our fathers said.
We’ll never grow old just like them.
Do I stick to my dreams; the one I set for myself?
Though they’re so far apart.
Must have been something somebody said. I’m sorry that I am not sure.
Kills me to think that this all could just end without closure.
An entire book finished without its final chapters.
Then there are times like tonight;
swinging in a basement with my best friends for
50 kids who give a shit about the songs I wrote
about not growing up and never giving in.
Those summer songs, dog days we spent living miles apart
from the ones that we love.
Let this fade into memory;
wash up ashore on the sands of my sleep.
