The Lost Ark Studio presents "Livin' And Dyin'" by Fruition, the latest single from the Lost Ark Studio Compilation - Vol. 09. Enjoy!

Sharing a common love of music and life on the road, Fruition were originally brought together by the lure of adventure. For the last six years, the Portland, Ore. string infused quintet has racked up the miles playing sold out shows in their adopted hometown and garnering new fans across the country.

Over the years, Fruition have toured with or collaborated with members of Railroad Earth, ALO, Infamous Stringdusters, Leftover Salmon, Greensky Bluegrass, Elephant Revival and The Head and The Heart. They've thrilled audiences at festivals including Jamcruise, High Sierra Music Festival, Northwest String Summit and All Good Music Festival, and played for packed rooms at Portland, OR’s Crystal Ballroom, Boulder, CO’s Fox Theater, San Francisco’s Fillmore as well as the Great American Music Hall, Boston, MA’s Brighton Music Hall and more.

With no signs of slowing down, the band takes each day as it comes. From broken down vans and whiskey shots, to the lovers and loved-ones who check-in through the miles, at the end of the day its Just One of Them Nights for this talented bunch who are experiencing a radiant present and looking towards an even brighter future.


Fruition - Livin’ and Dyin’

Soon this will all be over
We'll lay ya down to rest
you'll take one last breath

Maybe you, you'll become a eucalyptus
because your heart became the food
yeah, your body fed the roots

When you bloom, we will be well covered
and the bees will have a ball
your leaves will heal us all

You'll be the muse that makes two lovers kiss
turned on by your scent
we only stop to start again
we only stop to start again

ain't that the truth my friend

Alas, I must confess
at this moment I am a mess
no more and no less

I'm not afraid of dying, but i am afraid of living without you
so much sometimes that I can't move
what's a frightened man to do?

When we bloom, we will be together again
and the bees will have a ball
until our leaves color and fall

We'll be the muse that makes two lovers kiss
branches swaying in the wind
we only stop to start again
we only stop to start again

ain't that the truth my friend
ain't that the truth
ain't that the truth my friend
