about

Album version from the forthcoming vinyl LP "Ofrenda." La Practica De Familia remix from the cassette release "Gotta Try A Little Harder."

Haunted and hopeful, "Ofrenda" borrows the symbol of an offering for the dead from the Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos. It is the first full length from Frank Cruz since the passing of his 5 year old son, Zachary, in 2009. Honest songwriting and impassioned performances bear witness to the enduring power of love between father and child. Available on limited edition vinyl and digital download on Día de los Muertos (11/1) 2014. Pre-order at bit.ly/buyofrenda.

Track Name: Hereafter
HEREAFTER

I gotta try a little harder
And get myself together
“Be thankful for things I have”
Cause is it here, hereafter
I can put it back together?
I’ll finally get the answer
I waited for so long

We gotta try a little harder
Do your best to remember
A time we didn’t always have to try so goddamned hard
Is it here, hereafter
We can put it back together?
We’ll finally see our sunshine
We’ll forget it ever rained

Till then I try to remember to breathe
I block out the evidence this don’t mean a thing
Cause I know I can’t pretend it’s any worse for me
Sick of waiting for Jesus to speak to me

I gotta try a little harder
And get myself together
“Be thankful for things I have”
