about

Written after the original line up disbanded. The addition of an entirely new 4 piece band and the technical skill of Rob Montabello on guitar paved the way for a darker more aggressive punk album full of face melting guitar solos.

All song were recorded at our practice spot. Never got the chance to go into a real studio in the short time this incarnation was together, but were able to pull together a fairly decent representation of the songs.

Track Name: Walking Dead
We carry on the same
Lives everyday
We’re never looking back
The cities burned to ground
We’ve seen it in our minds
But never realized
Our lie is all the same
And this is our story

And I’ll rip the page out if i could
Bring you back with open eyes
To see this sinking ship we built won’t carry

The writing's on the wall
But no one sees a thing
We carry on our live
Oblivious and blind
We rally around the herd
And never speak a word
It’s tearing at your skin
And this is our story

And I’ll rip the page out if i could
Bring you back with open eyes
To see this sinking ship we built won’t carry

We’ll wake up someday

And I’ll rip the page out if i could
Bring you back with open eyes
To see this sinking ship we built won’t carry
Track Name: Kings and Martyrs
Loosing sight is this remission
Bury me with my my postions
Always have we strived just to deny
What’s meant for me and you?
A power struggle
Who’s the king and who’s the martyre
Gaining all and losing nothings left
To thrill you at all

Cosmic circumstance aside
Was the beginning where we started
Or we’re we to bright to see the light?
I’m fading
Out to dry with worse intentions
Than a preacher's intuition
Never mind the fact that we rely
Turn a blind eye

And i’ll find my way again
Through the webs they spin a maze
With all the things in life we try to hide
Not cycling the same
Routines that we all make for nothing at all
Track Name: Ghosts
Little voice inside my head
Telling me that there’s a reason
A million reasons all the same
A million stories down the drain
This is the show and the curtains falling
Down in the ruts where we hear the voices
Don’t want to look but it’s all the same
Is this the point where we all start tumbling down?

In a world with no conviction
Our progress is the victim
Are the mines worth taking out
Forget it all but it all keeps coming around
Good intentions are forgotten
All the dreams that we have lost
And i want to feel i can turn around
Before i find there is no turning back

And there’s an answer to the problem
We ought to know
I want to feel like i can breath
Want to feel like I'm not chasing ghosts
Pretending to have control
Track Name: Strings
“Strings hold the sadness and I hold the strings.”

Back to the back locked door.
Turn the key and keep repeating.
Trips to liquor store.
And trips to an empty bar.
I can keep my pockets empty.

I close my mouth to keep from breathing.
But another failed attempt.
Another tally mark.
And still I have
Well I have no hopes or goals.
I can’t find my heart or soul.
I just started feeling old about yesterday.
And the morning I awake from the day after
I made myself promise you.
That I’m leaving this place.
Yeah I’m leaving this place.
And I wish that you would stop me but I know you know
That I’m a waste.
Well now the train has come and gone.
But it wasn’t be here for long
I’ll be down and out I’m done.
Cause the truth’s elementary songs.
The truth are my closing arms.
We walked right up through the mess.
I couldn’t talk so you addressed the problems.
Now we’re feeling less.
So talk to me with sleep
And sleep right next to me.
Track Name: Anymore
This what you sort when you’ve got nothing
Right in front you
I guess this is my latest disposition
Where everything rolls off my chest
I gave up everything
To keep the map in front of me
Cause i got sick of being left alone
In a world of hate
And I’m here to face these words today

Ain’t gonna stop anymore

And all I really want from you
Is a mask to take off and something new
To come to terms with everything that’s missing
And find a perfect view
Cause I can’t see the road where it’s leading
But that’s ok for me
I’m still bleeding
And I can’t seem to shake this funny feeling
That there’s a world of hope
And I’m here to face that world today

Ain’t gonna stop anymore

And maybe this is not for you
I ain’t trying to be condescending
You can save your apathy
And I’ll be on my way
Track Name: Overrated
That’s the sound before the minority breaks
Why the fuck can’t you forget about yesterday
You’re not in touch with anything which begs the question
Who do i have to turn to?
Look in the mirror
And it is clearer

And you say i’m down at the bottom of the barrel
And nothing's gonna change
And this life is overrated
And I don’t care what you have to say to me
It doesn’t mean a thing
And this time it’s overrated

I’ve seen the scene and it is shattered
19 years ago nothing really mattered
Someone had the right idea
Don’t tell me that it’s a dead end
We tried so hard
Don’t tell me that it’s over
Well it ain’t over till it’s over

And you say i’m down at the bottom of the barrel
And nothing's gonna change
And this life is overrated
And I don’t care what you have to say to me
It doesn’t mean a thing
And this time it’s overrated
Track Name: Snap Shots
Snapshots seal our eyes as we disguise
These days don’t we all need alibis
Are you looking for the answer
Lost in the airwaves
We couldn’t hear the anthem the song seems so far away

Manipulate me
As i fade away
For logic and truth are what’s at stake
It’s painful to see this wasteland that stretches before me
No refuge for anyone
I guess the answer lies in me

With slight of hand their convincing me
That this deceptions already changed who we are
Gone with the tidal waves
My heart leaps right out in front of me
And i leave behind what I confided in me
Gone but I still believe
Track Name: Everyone Sucks
And I hate the way
Life isn’t turning out the i thought i would be
Yesterday I thought I could try
But that’s just a lie we say

Cause everyone sucks i know
We‘re all just cynical
And i don’t know why this is happening to me

And I dream of days
Where everything will go my way
On the top of the world just one time
And i don’t know why I even try to change

Cause everyone sucks i know
We‘re all just cynical
And i don’t know why this is happening to me
I’ve come undone
