about

McKane Davis performs as Roger Over & Out.
McKane sung the original harmony on Jaws Of Life (2002) “Caught off guard, by innocence…” Probably the nicest harmony on the record. While tracking the album at Flying Blanket 20 years ago, McKane called Dave saying he “heard something” on this part. Dave invited McKane into the studio to lay down a rough take. An hour later McKane stepped up to the mic, and recorded the part. Dave loved it so much, he said “well, you’re on the record!” McKane landed his performance in one take. It was meant to be.

Fast forward 20 years and McKane not only gets to track the part again, he takes on the task to record the entire song with Jamie Woolford. McKane always felt the song could benefit from a restructure in order to give it a more traditional chorus. And now he has accomplished that. So do you agree with him?

Once again, we couldn’t be more proud to have McKane recording a Before Braille song. He might have been right about the Jaws Of Life all along.

lyrics

JAWS OF LIFE

I'm caught up
In the jaws of life
What can heal can also
Tear you up inside

Writing down your own anthem
You don't like the older one
I would stand at attention
For less than minimum

Wage your own forgotten wars
Trade honor for canker sores
Ghostly pride with matching tours
You're childish without the joy

I know that I said I would change
I know that I haven't changed
A shoulder to lean on
And then break
I'm barely breathing
With my status day to day

I’m caught off guard
By innocence
I cross my heart
Your influences pull you down
I swear it's not
The fault of mine
Or of the fault of anyone

So tell me what the guilt feels like
Are you swallowed in your jaws of life
When you strip people down
You'll see how
They don't need their cover
Is it clear and defined
When fists from a simple conflict rise (I could tell you things to shock you)
And we turn into monsters
We thought were once extinct.
