about

South of Ramona Salt Lake City, Utah

Take every preconceived idea of folk bands and throw them out the window. Rather than a mellow and deconstructed acoustic sound, South of Ramona, hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, is a crooked folk band that injects the energy and rule-breaking attitude of rock and roll into a style of music that has long shied away from it. ... more

Track Name: Ladies and Gentlemen
Ladies and Gentlemen
Your attention to me
Get ready to see what you’ve not before seen
You’ll stir from the sound when we’ve taken the stage
You’ll feel the things no words can convey
Ladies and Gentlemen
Please don’t delay
Your attention up front for tonight
We play
Track Name: Carnival Court (step inside)
Come one, come all to the grand event
It’s located there in the big red tent
Welcome, welcome far and wide
Don’t be shy, there’s nowhere to hide
But be prepared when you enter in
For things are never as they appear
The court’s been called, the king arrives
Ready or not, he will open your eyes

So step inside
Step inside
Come on in now
Don’t be shy
This could be, this could be
The last ride of the night

So step inside
Step inside
Come on in now
Don’t be shy
This could be, this could be
The last ride of your life

The music plays as the curtains rise
The lights grow dim and a baby cries
The air starts to move as the audience bakes
Now there, in the spotlight, a figure waits
A voice fills the tent with sugar and spice
Betrayed by a smile never reaching the eyes
Welcome, welcome, and now that you’re here
Prepare yourselves for the ride you all fear

So step inside
Step inside
Come on in now
Don’t be shy
This could be, this could be
The last ride of the night

So step inside
Step inside
Come on in now
Don’t be shy
This could be, this could be
The last ride of your life

But be prepared when you enter in
For things are never as they appear
The court’s been called, the king arrives
Before we’re through we will open your eyes

We will open your eyes
Track Name: Purple Sky
I can’t be sure if I’m running out of time
Or if I’m lost in some corner of my mind
Now once or twice is fine with me
But don’t you get me wrong
I’ve been stuck in a waking dream
For oh so very long

The dark side of my mind
Now I can’t seem to find my way
The dark side of my mind
A dream that I can’t hide

A purple sky that never goes away
I toss and turn, I pray that I will wake
But this road I’m walking down
Will never set me free
A one way street, a one track mind
But I can’t feel a thing

The dark side of my mind
Now I can’t seem to find my way
The dark side of my mind
A dream that I can’t hide away

Can’t hide away
Can’t hide away
Track Name: The Lonesome Soul
The fire burns bright gather round for a tell
Of one whose path led away towards the pale
The lonesome soul
He was born from the heat of the sun
A wayward child with eyes never young
A lonesome soul
With a lonesome road

He calls out, a siren’s song
He calls out to the ancient ones
He calls out, a siren’s song
As he wanders on…

He grew up taught by nature and sky
Adrift in the joy of a bird taking flight
The lonesome soul
Learning from those who whispered of life
When listening for naught but the silence of night
A lonesome soul
With a lonesome road

He calls out, a siren’s song
He calls out to the ancient ones
He calls out, a siren’s song
As he wanders on…

The flame burns low but his story moves on
His path never ends as he searches beyond
The flame burns low but his story moves on
His path never ends as he searches beyond
A lonesome soul
With a lonesome road
Track Name: I, Narcissus
The greatest part, right from the start
I’ll be your God, I’ll steal your heart
While others look on in shame
Now I can see you think to try
To make a go for all that’s mine
I’m everything that you seek

Now everyone I see is waiting
And nobody makes a move
And I could say what I’m thinking
But what I’m thinking’s what I’m gonna do

Now crawling from the underground
They’re creeping crawlin all around
But I won’t make a scene
And all the ladies start to yell
For when I’m gone, they’ll be in hell
Oh why can’t I leave in peace

So rise on up and fill the street
We’re moving to an empty beat
Where everyone can be found
Now from my post I’ll take the lead
I’ll hold the reins of your defeat
And laugh as you kiss the ground

Now everyone I see is waiting
And nobody makes a move
And I could say what I’m thinking
But what I’m thinking’s what I’m gonna do
Track Name: Shangri-la
The heat from the desert sands is fading
Replaced by the bitter cold of life
The journey now is all that’s left
I’ve risked it all to pass the test
And nothing’s left but what I have within

Shangri-La that place of fate
Where all my broken dreams awake
It waits for me
It calls to me
And Shangri-La once lost is found
Now rising up above the clouds
It waits for me
It calls to me

I want it
You’ve got it
What I’ve been searching for
Is over, it’s over
But I won’t be the one

The flame that was burning bright is fading
And with it fades the path that I must take
But I can’t forget this place
The things I felt that came like waves
And carried me away
Away from darkest fate


Shangri-La that place of fate
Where all my broken dreams awake
It waits for me
It calls to me
And Shangri-La once lost is found
Now rising up above the clouds
It waits for me
It calls to me

I want it
You’ve got it
What I’ve been searching for
Is over, it’s over
But I won’t be the one to say goodbye
