The main members of the band are Jason Reece and Conrad Keely. Both can do lead guitar, drumming and vocals, so they switch a lot. They were friends since their youth, originally in Hawaii. They formed several bands before eventually moving to Austin, where they formed “And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead.” The band expanded eventually to include guitarist Kevin Allen and bassist Neil Busch. They then officially lengthened their name to …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead.

The lyrics of “Let it Dive” are as follows:

Now that owe ties are severed
As we say goodbye
Let us not wonder whether
We are ready to take the dive

Let it dive, let it die, let it fade out of sight
Let is drag us down, let it fade

Grieve, but not grieve together
Mourn with nothing to say
Gone are those times forever
Lost are those sweet warm other days

Let it dieve, let it dies, let it fade out of sight
Let it drag us down, let it come between you and I
Let it dive, let it die, let it fade

Where we born to despair
Deeds done but not forgiven?
There will always be something there
As long as the one of us goes on living

Let it dive, let it die
Let it fade out of sight
Let it drag us down, let it come between you and I
What’s done is done, no reason to apologize
Let it dive, let it die, liet it fade

  1. “Life Is A Highway” by Tom Cochrane isn’t about baseball but it’s great for team bus rides?
    “Centerfield” by John Fogerty is both – about baseball AND good for bus journeys.
