about

Sessions for "The MZTRIO First Takes" EP brought Marcel Ziul to the studio as a guitar player, singer and producer at the service of his own music, and free from any outside pressures, (labels and managers), for the first time.

Playing alongside friends he'd met throughout his career as a session musician, the recording provided the opportunity for his current band members to be selected, as Ziul played songs ranging from the rock/soul ballad "Ain't the Same" to his own blues material heard on "Gimme a Break".

The music ranges from deeply introspective songs that deal with loss and learning to cope with change, such as the emotional "In Your Hands", to anger-filled odes to frustrating romantic experiences as in "Confined".

Track Name: Confined
So fine she drives me into evil
Everything that people say about her goes forgotten

So sweet the taste of her temptation
Wonder what it tastes like to be under her rule

Same feeling every time I see her

So tired of not getting to feel her
Patience is not something I've been known to have

Confined to my imagination

She smiles and looks in my direction
Words freeze on the way out of my lips as I draw nearer

She stares me into desperation
Anxiously I walk towards her as she sits still

So sure she's leading me to danger

She sighs and turns her eyes away
Apparently I'm not exactly suited for her

Confined to my imagination

Solo

A crime is close to perpetration
Ideas whirl around my head as I approach her table

The lies you tell me as you move
I wish you'd disappear so you could leave me alone

I rose to all of your occasions

This time I will not be held back
This feeling just won't leave me it is her or me

Confined to my imagination
Track Name: Ain't the Same
Things just ain’t the same
They ain’t the same since you’ve been gone

They just ain’t the same
They ain’t the same since you’ve been gone

And it makes me sad and angry to know that your dreams never came true
And it makes me wonder why some things happen the way they do
And it tears up my faith

I haven’t cried
Haven’t shed a single tear

No I haven’t cried
I haven’t shed a single tear

And it makes me sad and angry to know that there’s nothing anyone can do
And it makes me wonder why some people leave us the way they do
And it tears up my faith

Solo

And it makes me sad and angry to know that there’s nothing anyone can do
And it makes me wonder why some leave us the way they do
And it makes me sad and angry to know that your dreams never came true
And it makes me wonder why some things happen the way they do
And it tears up my faith

When my time comes around I hope to find out
That there was something more to all of this
At least then I’ll know that you got a chance
To understand the reason why you left so soon
Track Name: In Your Hands
I’m the same as yesterday
But I’ve changed in many ways
Time, do with me what you may

Ever since you tore my calm away
My heart has been untamed
Time, do with me what you may

But don’t let me slide
And lose my mind
We’ve been through this before
And you’ve never been kind
Time, do with me what you like

When I’m not sure who to be
And everyone and everything occurs but me
Time, do with me what you please
But don’t let me slide
And lose my mind
We’ve been through this before
And you’ve never been kind
Time, do with me what you like

You have fooled me before
Let me feel love was in store
And then you took it away
Made me want it even more
You know I never suspect it
When you open that door
And throw away the key
Time, do with me what you please

I have faced this as a thrill
And my heart has beaten still
Time, do with me what you will
