about

After our first few years of experimenting and getting a solid 6 man line-up, we decided to head into Werley Bird Studios to record 3 songs in 2011 and 2012. These are usually staple songs in our setlist when we play live.

Track Name: Alter Ego
Conversation full of words and pride, maybe I should grow up and take a walk outside. Breathe in the air you it's alright, it's all in your head man stop forcing the fight.

Are you an addict a panic a man of fright? Are you banking off life being by your side? Well you need to wake up, can you can't lose your conscience, we need to wake up.

Hold my hand, hold it tight, walk down tunnel. Can you see the light?

I have a dream that one day I'll be fine.
But I can't fall asleep, not today, not tonight.
How can I sleep when nightmares engulf my mind constantly?
Hows your life?

And I think I'm far more better off avoiding conversation with strangers in a room where the walls are telling stories that I don't know to be true, should I spend more time with you or am I writing my own disaster?

Am I writing my own disaster?
Hold my hand hold it tight.
Walk down the tunnel my dear, can you see the light?

There's no more obligation, theres not another day.
Our fleet is setting sail and headed towards your way.
We'll terrorize your harbors, we'll set our fury free.
We'll watch you all fall down and burn is misery.

Excuse me please let me speak up.
My stomach is twisting for the right time to move.
To extract all your thoughts, and focus my time on trying to hold to this person that I once knew.
And now I finally know, I lost all that I am.
God, show yourself. I'm a helpless man.

And capture my lungs, so you have more room to breathe.

The codex is slowly burning my soul and I don't know what to do.
These ghosts surpass my holy poison but I don't think that I will ever be healed.

You just wrote your own disaster.
Track Name: This City
I built this city up from the ground.
And I'll be damned if it gets fucked up.
Peace and world make the world go 'round,
but this love is the element that keeps me in town.
Hold me, secure me, do whatever it takes for you to cure me,
and I'll show you the ropes.

Let me know what it is girl, that makes you so interesting.
Maybe it's the way your eyes are talking,
and your lips are staring back at me.

I walk around this town just like I own every single one of you.
But baby girl you've got that attitude.
My momma always told me not to play with matches,
for I shall get burned.
I'm sorry momma, but I couldn't help it.
I just had to feel the burn.

Reassured, of everything I came into this town with.
My baby girl, holding my hand so tightly,
I don't ever wanna leave this town.

I'll hold you, you hold me.
Together we can make it, it's the weak that cannot take it.

Like a constant cycle, I bounce to the beat of the city's heart.

The foundation is still standing tall,
until the day I fall I promise I will never feel the urge to dream,
count the stars, or flee from the scene.
This is victory.

This is the way that I feel.
This home I've built is make of steel.
The foundation is still standing tall.

Lyrics by Andrew Calderon
Track Name: Dexter
I finally ran away from the worst part of my life.

The darkness inside of me, a little thing that I need.
To make me feel like I've got company.

Is this the same dream, can you decide?
(I'm reborn again without question I'll make this right.)
I guess that I must face the truth and leave out all the lies.

I've been jaded, again and again.
And the answers to my prayers begin to look like the sins that I've made
from the end to the start.
Take it back to the beginning, I had a talk with God
and he said what I'll do is worth sinning.
I said, "I wanna break them down, rip them apart,
show the world their insides out."
He said, "That's what I'm all about, you need to build them and then destroy the sound. Let the weak stay behind. Its your time to shine. Not your fault its their deathwish to die."

I'm coming out now, to recollect the broken pieces of my mind.
And can you lend me a hand tonight, my old abandoned friend?
I'm in open water and the tides about to take me.

The same recurring dreams, why won't they die?
(Our future looked so bright but now it's way out of my sights.)
And I guess that I must face the truth and leave out all the lies.
(We gave you chance after chance but kept proving all of us right.)

Now I know what I have to say and I'm coming right for you this time.
You're like a parasite you leech off the darkness.
You like to be on top but baby, you're worthless.
You walk around with this mask on your face.
It's beautiful, astounding, but we know it's fake.

I FOUND LIGHT.
A life without you is a life with me,
so I'll take the darkness that you gave and sail to see.
Yes.
Track Name: Aspirations
watch the sunrise, the rays make me feel so conscious
when I took that step i realized what I just was running from
where did the sun go and again I feel so numb and again I am on the run

I need to find where, I need to find where I can escape
to a place where I can continue to live with myself

we need to find some aspirations
our time is up, we're out of patience

a step back from reality was the struggle that led me to see
we need to find some aspirations, our time is up, im out of patience

with the slightest bit of confidence my mind was set with a life that lost all innocence, so afraid to leave my feet off the ground, but i've lost it all im fearless to say the least
with the slightest bit of confidence my mind was set with a life that lost all innocence, so afraid to leave my feet off the ground, but i've lost it all im fearless to say the least

Youre mine
I can live and persever
through smoke flames and gusts, wind shears
don't feel guilt or be ashamed
learn to live another day

the time to make me, control the take I can have on my life
watch the sunrise, the rays make me feel so conscious
when I took that step I realized what I just was running from
where did the sun go and again I feel so numb and again I am on the run

when I took that step I realized what I just was running from
where did the sun go and again I feel so numb and again I am on the run

salutations my friends there's much more time to be spent, our bonds will last forever, broken ties remain severed

I am here to play the game and take a chance to roll the dice, if it's snake eyes then ill suffice
the dealers blind 4 of a kind, she'll chase her shots of ignorace with thoughts full of suicide.
