    "Now, 25 years later, a much-needed anthology of Raging Fire's recordings has arrived to secure their legacy in the digital age. Everything Is Roses 1985-1989, due Oct. 6, is a collection of all the band's vital recordings, many of which are previously unreleased, some having been painstakingly mastered from dusty old cassettes. The vinyl packaging is stunning, with a lavish 12-page booklet full of notes, lyrics, photos, show fliers, etc., plus a 24-song download.”

    --Nashville Scene October 1, 2015

    "Raging Fire could pull back and give hints of their Nashville origins, but the band’s dynamic rock ‘n’ roll rage was more in line with the barking poetry of Patti Smith, post-punk of X than southern rock or country twang. Even the band’s acoustic numbers, such as “After Loving One Man From East Texas,” have some bite."

    --No Depression, 2015

Track Name: Raging Fire - A Family Thing
I brushed my hair and tripped down the stairs
into another Monday - what would my mother say?
I heard the door slam a thousand times
and you left me - but I know
“its a family thing”

she said it one time
she said it two times
then she stopped eating and started drinking
we always hear the blues in my mother’s house

“if you love me keep yourself clean
stop knocking around with every guy town”

she said it one time
she said it two times then she stopped eating and started drinking
we always hear the blues in my mother’s house

I heard the door slam and then she left me
but it’s just a family thing
Track Name: Raging Fire - You Should Read More Books
Back down boy, you’re breaking my bones
Loving so forcefully, forgetting it was me
White baby, you better turn your stereo down
Too much is too much for me - just a kiss won’t do for you

Hold on now, its political
We just bounce off one another
“Tell me about me, let’s forget about you”
Passion in life just doesn’t include
Passion for life or others besides you

I think you love before you think
Turn down the noise, go back to bed
Use your newspaper to clean your windows with
And after all the fires
and all the bloodshed
You haven’t come very far
You haven’t had your own war yet

Ok - so it felt good and God smiled
And the world turned green
I’ll have another beer and some news on TV
You can call it love but the word lacks a lot

Back down boy, you’re breaking my bones
Loving so forcefully, forgetting it was me
White baby, you better turn your stereo down
Too much is too much for me - just a kiss won’t do for you
Track Name: Raging Fire - Four Tears
Spent too much on polyester and chocolate
Chocolate always bitter sweet
She knew God had to hate her and that He couldn’t hate
She felt He couldn’t love her, God had to hate to hate

She sang for change but the chorus remained
Tears for him, tears for her
A mascara face and pillowcase

The mirror always holds the demon grief
Talk to Him when you can,
Much too old to exorcise her Demons
Cause Demons will grow with time (like trees)
To live a long life on Church Street
