about

Our debut album. It was a fucking process and a half to get this made, which survived a studio break in, a meth head posing as a cancer victim, a ghost in the studio, a disappearing engineer, poverty, and 700 liters of coffee. If there's a running theme, it's probably demonstrating infallibility in gray scenarios. Between tracking the instruments and getting the album mastered, our guitarist quit and our bassist opted to focus on his other band. We still love you guys though! There were a couple songs that we wrote but didn't record that will be on the next album, which are called Captive and Feel Better. We did however completely record all the music to a song, but it didn't make it on the album because Keith didn't write lyrics and vocals in time. Shame on you, Keith.

Track Name: Blinded Sight
There was once a moment
When I was defined
As less of a person
And more of an archetype

Genuine
Well defined
I dare you to find
Who I really am
Beyond
Your blinded sight

There was once a party
Where the room at large
Pegged me for amusement
It nearly broke my heart

Genuine
Well defined
I dare you to find
Who I really am
Beyond
Your blinded sight

I awoke on the floor
Was asked to leave through the back door

Sunlight
Pierces my bloodshot eyes
I won't drink again
Ignite
The bridge's dynamite
We won't speak again
Nightlife
Inebriate my mind
Hypocrites again

Genuine
Well defined
I dare you to find
Who I really am
Beyond
Your blinded sight
Track Name: Light The Fuse
Aren't you such a perfect specimen
Aren't you the model of good health
While you rely on your indifference
Not to offend
Not to condemn
Don't you just pen such catchy melodies
Don't you just work that crowd so good
You're so consumable, digestible
Like sugar-free
Ovaltine

We watched you light the fuse
Now we will watch the clock until
The detonator's boom
We can't wait
We watched you light the fuse
Countdown until oblivion
The detonator's boom
We can't wait

You climbed that ladder straight to the top
You bathe in limelight, yes you do
But you've forgotten how to get unclean
You're so pristine
Such vanity
You make me sick like delirium tremors
You make me sick just being you
Find some lye
409
Drink it up
Put yourself down

We watched you light the fuse
Now we will watch the clock until
The detonator's boom
We can't wait
We watched you light the fuse
Countdown until oblivion
The detonator's boom
We can't wait

Another single made
So soon forgotten
Vacancy of content
So misbegotten
Another album dropped
Leave me disgusted
12 tracks with nothing said
So damn repugnant

The detonator's set
Set to blow
Shelf life, expired
It's time for you to go

We watched you light the fuse
We watched the detonator's boom
Who will remember you?
We can't wait
Track Name: Secret Cowboy
Baby, come outside
We can take a ride
I've got a feeling I can't stand here
A broken valentine
A perfect alibi
I've got a reason it's called you

She sent signals
I ignored
I should've listened to her more

This one's down the hatch
A toast to new romance
This fleeting love can be enduring
But something isn't right
My head is feeling light
Through the leaves I see her scowling

She sent signals
I ignored
I should've listened to her more

Baby, give me time
Chance to apologize
I'm sure the view was unappealing
AA broken valentine
A perfect alibi
I've got a reason it's called you

She sent signals
I ignored
I should've listened to her more
Now I'm dying
on this kitchen floor
I should've listened to her more
Track Name: Fragile Mind
I can't contain
What I contain
Inside of my fragile mind
It all comes out
Pours out my mouth
Without concern for intent

And I'm going much more faster
As I'm losing all my friends
Like a natural disaster
I cannot make this end

Ease my fragile mind
Keep my thoughts confined
Place the pieces in line
Ease my fragile mind

I death defy
Release my spine
Put the glass to my face
Burnt at both ends
Gone to my head
Breathe the smoke from the blaze

And I'm going much more faster
As I'm losing all control
Like a chemical reaction
I'm volatile, ready to explode

Ease my fragile mind
Keep my thoughts confined
Place the pieces in line
Ease my fragile mind

I have become
Unable to run
Fated to banish everyone
Put me in a room
Put me in a bed
Put me under
Put one in my head
Would you put me down
Could you put me down
Would you put me down

Ease my fragile mind
Keep my thoughts confined
Place the pieces in line
Ease my fragile mind
And I'm going much more faster
As I'm losing all my friends
Like a natural disaster
I cannot make this end
Track Name: I Feel Nothing
Though I know you're wrong
I will bite my tongue
To avoid you breaking down cause the truth is just too much
You would call it mean
Moral apathy
I prefer to refer to it as silent decency

I feel nothing
I feel nothing
I feel nothing for you

When you shout at me
Speak to you serene
But underneath are a thousand screams that I buried with my teeth
Patient by design
Swallowed all your crimes
Boiling up as the axe comes down we're dancing on landmines

I feel nothing
I feel nothing
I feel nothing for you

Resignation to a fate of mutual genocide
A war of who cares more made by our pride
Our decline from valentine to foe was lost in time
All that matters now is who's more right

Though I know we're doomed
To suffer absolute
I refuse to cut the noose if it means I'm saving you

I feel nothing
I feel nothing
I feel nothing for you
Track Name: Gone Cold
It slipped away
We watched it all fall right through the cracks
It faded away
You left me nothing but the crows on my back
And you used to say
That I was always to blame for your mistakes
And it's such a shame
What we made with our time
It seems it all just a waste

I'm floating down this river
Nothing to take hold
When will I discover
That the water's gone cold
I slowly start to shiver
I can feel it in my soul
Where's my rescue boat

There's no other way
To explain this divide
That I find
As it kills me inside
I'll show you the way
Still you sway to the side
You're blind
With the absence of light

I'm floating down this river
Nothing to take hold
When will I discover
That the water's gone cold
I slowly start to shiver
I can feel it in my soul
Where's my rescue boat

To feel has become a burden
And I pray for you to change
You slowly switched your face
The one I knew has been erased
When did it fade
And did you always have that blade
Tucked away
Tucked away
Ready to make your escape
I've been betrayed
Overthrown
Desperate attempts
To stay afloat
These icy waters
Swallow me whole
My thought an epitaph
Where's my rescue boat
Track Name: There's A Way Out Of Hell
(instrumental)
Track Name: I Contend
Under the midnight sun
I see constellations
I hear electric hum
And liquid conversations
But there's no evidence
You've returned my calls
When I review my success
You're not there at all

I contend
I contend
I contend there's no room for you (here)

Beneath a starless sky
I make observations
About your role in life
And all your contradictions
And there's no other way
But to sever all ties
From such arcane diction
Those benevolent lies

I contend
I contend
I contend there's no room for you (here)

Under the midnight sun
I see constellations die
I see that I'm free

I contend
I contend
I contend there's no room for you (here)
Track Name: Get Away
Penetrating conflicts echo through my mind
Calculated comments aimed at my demise
All your stony gazes leave me petrified
So you start to chisel at what's left of my pride
I'm forgetting everything I can
All that remains I will put down
Underground, out of sight
Like a disarmed landmine
If you try to stay tonight
You better think twice

Get away
Go back to where you came
Keep your distance

I've been set free
Untethered from your chain
You're far behind me

I've replaced you
I've evolved in stride
Still you return
Still equipped with your
Dirty looks, lips so tight
Judgmental eyes
If you try to stay tonight
You better think twice

Get away
Go back to where you came
Keep your distance

Your need to demean
To make yourself feel more supreme
It's unsympathetic
It's so god damn pathetic
Doesn't matter how
How you try and change
You will always be
Be that petty flame
The one that flickers at the slightest breeze, the faintest breath
The one that needs to burn to feel alive
Doesn't matter who survives

Get away
Go back to where you came
Keep your distance

Untethered from your chain
You're far behind me
Track Name: Teenage Baby
Plant your tongue in your cheek
Bite down hard, spit your blood in the street
Don't weep for yourself
You won't get far if you won't ask for help
I hear you speak in demands
Like language was delivered to the palm of your hand

You leave me guessing like it's a souvenir
Teenage baby, let me see those tears

So you came for a cause
Just cause you came, doesn't earn it applause
With a bottle of white
Stop that spinning, just leave on the light
Put your shame on display
Sulk in the sun, celebrate in the shade

You leave me guessing like it's a souvenir
Teenage baby, let me see those tears

One day you will have to deal with yourself

You leave me guessing like it's a souvenir
Teenage baby, let me see those tears

Terrify me please
Validate my stress with the greatest of ease
Track Name: Shadow
Can't stop, don't stop, it's catching up
No strolling, I gotta run
It's grasping at my shirt
Take a breath and rest
It could be your last escape from death
It's everything you dread

There's a shadow lurking
Right behind me
No this can't be
I don't know how it found me

My pockets lined with grams of white
I will provide provided
That you cut me in
And from behind, my past is nigh
Disguised as a bloody scythe
It's everything you dread

There's a shadow lurking
Right behind me
No this can't be
I don't know how it found me

I'll be waiting (for you)
There's no escaping (next time I'm coming for you)

There's a shadow lurking
Right behind me
No this can't be
I don't know how it found me

I don't know
How I was found
Like a ghost
I will haunt this town
Track Name: Home Is Where The Bleeding Heart Is
Holy words
Never heard
Home is where the bleeding heart is
Haggard hope
Hung from a rope
Home is where the bleeding heart is

Your fear's in the palm of his hand
He grips tight to instill his
Domination
Your submission
He sees you as a commodity
Dressings for his vanity
Egotistic
It's sadistic

Girl
You'd be justified
Nobody would find out
You're so burnt out
You'd be free now

Holy words
Never heard
Home is where the bleeding heart is
Haggard hope
Hung from a rope
Home is where the bleeding heart is

You've been trained to bottle up the pain
Every day, another melee
It's no secret
We all see it
He's got you by the neck
He's got you by the neck
He's got you by the neck
Screaming home is where the bleeding heart is
With your breath
Sink your teeth in

Girl
You'd be justified
Nobody would find out
You would be revived
Like a phoenix fire
From the ash you'll spring out
You won't burn out
You'd be free now

Hope for a day
When you feel safe
It turns gray
So gray
It's gone

Search the room
What's in sight
Fingers wrap
'Round a knife
Blindly stab
Lands its mark
Buried deep and stopped his bleeding heart

Girl
You were justified
Nobody has found out
Don't you feel revived?
Like a phoenix fire
From the ash your sprung out
You won't burn out

Raise your hands up high
You finally smile
A sign of hope
Spelled out in demise
Your former love
Has bled out
Gave out
He's been put down
