Another song that had been recorded previously, it first appeared on our 1992 independent release, Star-Studded-Super-Step. Sometimes Cry was a fairly popular song in concert, partially because of the catchy chorus. The original recording featured an ending that literally fell apart with drum beats, guitars, and percussion going all over the place. This was accomplished with the original 8-track recorders 'SEL-REP' buttons, as they were called. Essentially, it allowed some tracks to be read from the play heads, while the other tracks were read from the recording heads. The Mindsize version featured a similar 'breakdown' at the end.
Lyrically this song focuses on the refuge that we have in the Lord. It also focuses on the work that we have to do to find that refuge in Him. The song is summed up in the chorus, \"Run away, Far away, To Yahweh, He's my hideway\". Nick was kind enough to point out that the chorus rhymed \"away\" 3 times. I hadn't noticed, I guess, .... and I was pretty stoked.
