"Complex One" was a band formed in the late 80's. This project is the product of two of us revisiting and reinventing some of those songs.

Complex One (circa 1988):
Tony Clark - vocals, guitar, keys
Joe Schmidt - drums
Bryan Derrick - bass

Note: The Complex One songs on this EP were transferred from a cassette tape that was recorded during a practice session in Austin, TX in 1988.


Various images are of the "complexes" of CITY, a piece of earth art located in Nevada by the artist Michael Heizer. His project began in 1972 and is ongoing. The first structure, Complex One, was an inspiration for the original band name.

Track Name: The River
The river runs wide and you can't seem to get to the other side
The ocean rages mighty and you can't hold back the tide

Oh it never changes
Oh it always changes

Nothing to hold nothing stays the same
Broken bottle on the floor the same old cigarette stain

Stripped you of dignity stripped you of pride
There's nothing left but what's dying inside

Oh it never changes
Oh it always changes

The good dream dies hard you tried but you didn't get far
Nothing left but broken heart

You say always they say never
Gotta try to get to the other side of the river

Oh love never changes
Oh love never changes
Oh love never changes
Oh love never changes
Track Name: Standing There
I never saw you standing there by the light
I never saw you standing there something’s not quite right
My love will lose all winner takes everything
But now as I fall am I gonna take you down with me

I never knew the difference between the you and the me
I never got the reference from what was and will be
You are the teacher you have the rules you suggest
I knew the answers but I still failed the test

I never saw you standing there by the light.
I never saw you standing there something’s not quite right.

I never saw you standing there on the shore
I never caught a glimpse of where I looked before
I pushed away I cut the lines I set adrift the aimless mind
I found myself on the other side

I never saw you there by the light
I never saw you standing there something’s not quite right
My love will lose all winner takes everything
But now as I fall am I gonna take you down with me
Track Name: Standing There (club mix)
I never saw you standing there by the light
I never saw you standing there something’s not quite right
My love will lose all winner takes everything
But now as I fall am I gonna take you down with me

I never knew the difference between the you and the me
I never got the reference from what was and will be
You are the teacher you have the rules you suggest
I knew the answers but I still failed the test

I never saw you standing there by the light.
I never saw you standing there something’s not quite right.

I never saw you standing there on the shore
I never caught a glimpse of where I looked before
I pushed away I cut the lines I set adrift the aimless mind
I found myself on the other side

I never saw you there by the light
I never saw you standing there something’s not quite right
My love will lose all winner takes everything
But now as I fall am I gonna take you down with me
Track Name: Follow Me
Dreaming the clouds at your fingertips
Fade away into yesterday
Faces reflections of the heart
Turned to stone when the love is gone

Follow me
Follow me
Where scarlet turns to white
Follow me

Brother don’t you mind the tears
All of those wasted years have gone away
Sister don't you mind the rain
All of the the storms will soon drift away

Follow me
Follow me
When starlight turns to day
Follow me

Follow me
Follow me
Where scarlet turns to white
Follow me
Track Name: Follow Me (long journey mix)

Where scarlet turns to white
Follow me

Brother don’t you mind the tears
All of those wasted years have gone away
Sister don't you mind the rain
All of the the storms will soon drift away

Follow me
Follow me
When starlight turns to day
Follow me

Follow me
Follow me
Where scarlet turns to white
Follow me

[break]

Follow me
Follow me
When starlight turns to day
Follow me

Bright tomorrows give way to gloomy days
Hope grows dim as the time slips away
Dark clouds linger as the future fades
The only hope that’s left is for brighter yesterdays

Follow me
Follow me
Where scarlet turns to white
Follow me
