about

Our debut album together. Non Duo is Paul McCarty, formerly of Wicked Saints, and Marina Gutman. He's from New Orleans (the swamp of the south) and she's from Moldova (the swamp of Europe). Their musical influences -- gypsy/russian and cajun/rock -- mix into an eclectic stew of styles. Their life stories and world views mix into a wild, poetic, non-dualistic brew of lyrics. Genres vary from bluegrass to ballads to folk to rock to who-knows-what-that-is. But always a different and memorable melody with haunting vocal harmonies. Cliches are shunned. Each song allowed to explore its own world.

Track Name: This One Is For Me
Goin' to get my rifle
Set my sights upon you
You ain't my disciple
On this we must agree
Trains keep on passin'
I can't hear you prayin'
The next life's everlastin'
But this one is for me
Yeah, the next life's everlastin'
But this one is for me
HA!

Goin' to get my pack now
I gotta hop this train now
Run 'cross county lines
No you ain't goin' to find me
Wheels keep on rollin'
I can't hear you callin'
The next train will be comin'
But this one is for me
Yeah the next train will be comin'
But this one is for me
HA!

Go on and cut my pride now
Got nothin' left to hide
No, you ain't my lord now
And never shall you be
Life keeps drummin'
I can't hear you dyin'
The next life will be comin'
But this one is for me
Yeah, the next life will be comin'
But this one is for me
HA!

Go on and get salvation
If that's your motivation
The next life's everlastin'
But this one is for me
The next life's everlastin'
But this one is for me
HA!
The next life's everlastin'
But this one is for me
Yeah, the next life's everlastin'
But this one is for me
HA!
Track Name: Free
Far on my raft I sail
Storms will surely lie before me
Blown along by all my fantasies
And everything I dreamed of as a child

I sail silently away
I know the stars above will guide me
Pray the dark of night will hide me
So I can live to rhyme another day

And I’ll never go back now
Knowing the world that surrounds me
All my regrets sink away from me
I’m free now, I’m free, yes I’m free

Don’t you try to understand me
No, I have nothing left to run from
You may feel better on the shoreline
But I can feel it drifting from my mind

And I’ll never go back now
Knowing the world that surrounds me
All my regrets sink away from me
I’m free now, I’m free, yes I’m free

I stare deeply ever forward
Never reaching the horizon
I've cut every tie that held me
Now I belong to the sea

And I’ll never go back now
Knowing the world that surrounds me
All my regrets sink away from me
I’m free now, I’m free, yes I’m free
No I’ll never go back now
Knowing the world that surrounds me
All my regrets sink away from me
I’m free now, I’m free, yes I’m free
I’m free now, I’m free, yes I’m free
Track Name: Dark
When I close my eyes
And I whisper to the spirit standing over me
Didn’t realize
There was something really different coming over me
There’s no one here
As I fall to you again
When I feel you near
All my fears
Begin to rain

And it’s turning
Dark
Dark
Dark
When we come apart
It’s just so dark
In here is only fear
Like tears rolling down
Like rain they’re rolling down
They drown, they drown

There will be a first time
When you feel there is someone watching over you
It’ll be the last time
When you think the Universe has gotten over you
I’m always here
As you fall to me again
When you feel me near
All your fears
Begin to rain
Track Name: Shadows & Lights
I don’t like being afraid of you
But I see you better than the rest
I hear all of the words you say
And I feel like I’m put to the test
The things that you are afraid to say
You showed me when you made me look a fool
Well, it’s lies that hurt all the time, my love
The truth will only hurt once

Cause in a world full of lies
Where most tears will end in goodbyes
The truth is my only disguise
Just look in my eyes
It’s all shadows and lights

Your shadows once were a thrill to me
But everything comes with a price
You said that we were never meant to be
But I felt like throwing the dice
The day when it all went awry for me
Was the day that you promised woud come
The one thing that we could not foresee
Was the place where the truth would come from

Don’t look away as the rising sun
Comes up inside of you
And your shadows melt away
Don’t you know that the water’s rushing up
Just to wash it all away
So don’t look away

Now I know I don’t need to be afraid of you
My heart still knows love the best
And inside all of the lies you told
The truth was coming to rest
Track Name: High On The Water
High on the water
So high on the water
How high on the water
Sail away, sail away

Lightning storms on the water
Where the ships, once sailed
Still live down there
Where the sun can barely see
Tattered sails all drift away
Like distant dreams fade in the day
On the shores of make believe

Sailing high on the water
So high on the water
How high on the water
Sail away

Thunder rolls on the open seas
My heart, once drowned, still sits down there
Where the soul can barely breathe
Buried lies all gasp for air
And stir things up I left down there
As the waves are crashing in

Cause maybe it’s nothing at all
I can drown and answer the call
In the night and the shadows of the day
It’s all the same. It’s all the same
Track Name: Small Things
Where do you go?
Where do you go when I call you?
How would you know?
How would you know when I fall for you?
Time tears away
all the small things that were all in vain
Can't be afraid. I can let go.
I held on too long

'Cause now, we're lost in a whole 'nother story
So why do we spend all our lives chasing shallow dreams
And it seems like forever we held it together
Till it all falls down
In the end it was all small things

I wish I could say…
Wish I could say how I loved you
But time doesn't wait.
Time just goes passing by fools like me
I wish I could write
I'd write us a whole different chapter
But what('d) be the point.
It's lost to the past
We're just looking back

I just want it to be real.
I feel like I'm just writing fiction
Just don't look away.
We could wake up and it's all a dream
Track Name: Turn Around
I've got my seven rays to heaven
And seven ways to hell
But that's a road I only know too well
Cause after all my good intentions
To answer all the questions
I didn't see it coming when I fell

Wandering through confusion
Has shattered my illusions apart
And torn me down

And it's all breaking apart
Back to the start and turn around
And turn around

So now I turn to face my demons
Those things that I belived in
They disappeard when I turned on the light
Finally let go of my pretension
Of all my misconceptions
Cause yesterday I broke through heaven's door
Forevermore
Track Name: Saying Goodbye
Out of the last one
Into the next
And I’m in love again
Back in the motion,
Though I can’t drive.
Right, I should’ve left

Out of the costume
I’m wearing you
I’m in trouble still
Back in your life
Not really here
So I’m saying goodbye
Saying goodbye

It won’t be the first
It won’t be the last
It won’t be the worst
I’ll do it so fast
Push on the gas
Watch me go past
As I’m saying goodbye
Saying goodbye
Yes, I’m saying goodbye

Out of my head
Back in your bed
I’m shivering again
Back in your arms
Is in the past
Today’s ‘nother day.

Out of my skin
I’m in too deep
Well is running dry
Reach out your hand
I’m drifting away
And I’m saying goodbye
Saying goodbye
Track Name: Mama
I looked for a way
I wanted to say
But it's like foreign words to me
There will come a day
When I will break my silence
Live up to my conscience
Then mama, I'll turn to you and ask
where have you gone on to, alas
Will I ever hear your voice in this world?

So I turn my head
Cause it could never be said
What stolen dreams I had
I give back to you
There's still some sorrow
Closure I'd borrow
But mama, you knew what I could be
There's so much that only you could see
Will I ever hear your voice in this world?

No, no, no, no, no, please no.
No, no, no, no, no, please no.

Cause everyone stumbles
But only I'd crumble
Nobody was there to bring me back
Where were you then?
So I cry to the walls
No one answers my calls
But mama, you're always in my heart
When the whole world has fallen apart
Will I ever hear your voice in this world?

No, no, no, no, no, please no.
No, no, no, no, no, please no.
Will I ever hear your voice again?
Track Name: Wild Junkie Dream
I’m waking up to my wild junkie dream
You won’t believe all the things I did see
How could you?
But they were true

Daylight for you was a nightmare for me
All my bad dreams were just your fantasy
You pulled my strings
So easily

Oooh.... It’s too late. Sealed my fate

I spend my daze in my wild junkie dream
Don’t you pretend you don’t know what I mean
Cuz you were there
Let’s be fair

You looked at me, but your face was all wrong
Your body was here, but your heart and your soul
Were long gone.
What have I done?

Oooh…. It’s too late. Sealed my fate

When the daylight fades you can see everything
All the lies that shine within
After all these years without a doubt
That’s what we’re living in
And the only way to keep it out
Is never to breathe in

I’m dozing off to my wild junkie dream
You don’t remember where to begin
You can stay
Or show the way.

Oooh… It’s too late. Sealed my fate.
Oooh… It’s too late. Half past eight
Track Name: Not Two
In the moonlight we were walking
And the stars were out and talking
In the moment light is fading
Not you
Every breath that we have taken
In the morning we awaken
Every moment
One was not two

No illusions, no mistaking
Every moment we are making is true

In the sunlight we were dancing
And the clouds were out romancing
I don't need to be shaded from you
