Opel Springfield, Massachusetts

Driving bass, complex percussion, dark melodic keyboards, and intense electric guitar leads define the sound that Opel claims as their own. Springfield, Massachusetts based rock band, Opel began writing and performing songs about love, life, loss, and addiction back in 2005 when bassist Bill Szafarowitz and song writer James Fiore (formerly of the band Project Fuzz) joined forces. ... more

Track Name: The Middle Man
The yellow dawn it shines upon
My still shut weary eyes
And just for that one moment
I still don't realize
How this human maze
Will soon invade my life
Its like a poison, seeping deeper now
I gotta get out and work to live today

Its such a shame
I can't lay out in the rain
Its given new life a chance to breath
Its given young minds the space they need to dream

I trade in my days
For spare change
I'm living in between
The spaces in between
I can't make a meal
Outta paper money
But with the seed and the soil
The sun and the rain's all I need

If you're too blind to see
Please hang up the phone and shut off the TV
We're running in circles, when life is our right
Let's cut out the middle man and let the earth provide
So we won't rely
On everything they want us to buy
Your money or your life
Track Name: The Flood
The flood came to my door last night
And I got an awful fright
I strapped my body to an old oak raft
And so began my plight
So began my plight

Waves crashed down upon my head
I was cast away
Chained to the storm on a wooden board
Well, the rest I can not say
The rest I can not say

What have I lost
What have I found in your eyes
Certain demise
No reprise

Once upon a dream
On a golden reef
Corral caressed your feet so sweet
Its just a memory
Its just a memory

So take me by the hand
Or take me by the knife
But lay down beside me your life
It never was my plan to tread your wake
Your shallow's too deep
Your shallow is too deep
