about

________________________

This recording is the result of many live shows, many recorded practices, and many attempts at final masters that were thrown out for their lack of raw energy. What you hear is 4 people making a sound that they can only make together, and only at the same time. Punking ourselves all along the way.

We know the future...and you won't care.

{ A Black Light }

Draw the line
You’re so sure you have the right
You’ll be fine
Don't look past the rules that you
Hide behind
You can't give in to the doubt
Inside your mind
It creeps inside, creeps inside

All that we know
All we believe, all we believe
All the distance
In between, in between
Difference between
You and me, you and me
Is how we see
In between, in between

Black Light
A drone strike
There'll be
More time
It's just a lie retreat inside your
Fire

Draw the line
You’re so sure you have the right
You’ll be fine
Don't look past the rules that you
Hide behind
You can't give in to the doubt
Inside your mind
It creeps inside, creeps inside

All that you know
All you believe, all you believe
It's just a scheme
To deceive, to deceive (triplets)
Difference between
You and me, you and me
Is how we see
Wants and needs, have your greed (triplets)

Black light
A drone strike
Wrong or right
Strike!

Right or wrong I don't care
Win, lose, do what you do
Us, them, there its just us
Erase all the thoughts from your

{ I Know You Don’t Know }

I want to live in this home
Between what I do and don’t know
Your lies are getting too old
My life is getting too old
Our time is just a dead soul

You could have had all of it
But it seems you have no interest
Your bliss is just an ignorance
Third eye it just stares and sits
Waiting for what you don’t know

I know you don’t know

I don’t know who we are anymore
So if I live alone, I live alone
Sing songs to keep my company
You’re afraid I’m dying
I’m afraid I’m already dead

Track Name: 5 Alarm

{ 5 Alarm }

Lining up your sights
A roll of the the dice
Who will win tonight
I'll be proven right

A fire in your hands
Forget all your plans
With no time to warn
This is the alarm

What you want I
Want it too
Before I do
Make your move

Can you hear a thing
Except your ears ring
Hear you beckoning
To me a scream

Lift up by your hands
Can you even stand
With no time to warn
This is the alarm

Make your move
Give me something to prove

Five the alarm
Four times to warn
Three seconds to stand
Two make a plan

{ Bleed It Out }

When you're alone all is quiet
You might stop and think you're alright
Then you see me
And realize

What you wanted you waited for
What you wanted you waited for

What I've wanted
You on the floor
We'll have you
Never more, good-bye

Bleed it out!
Bleed it out!

I'm not alone it's a riot
I won't stop or remain quiet
Come at me and you will find

All your life is out on the floor
All your life is out on the floor

We won't ever sleep so you should
Dig yourself in deep cause surprise

Bleed it out!
Bleed it out!

I can't feel you
What's in side of you
Try and find it
What you waiting, what you waiting for

I will cut you
Disembowel you
See what you got

{ On Your Knees }

When you sad you
You take it all in
Every little pill
Every little pin
On your knees now
Gun in hand
Feel less a man

What’s inside of you
Are you turning blue
What’s inside of you
Are you outside too

So blow yourself
Away from here
Till your insides
Can appear
On your knees now
Gun in hand
Are you a man

{ Anthropomancy }

You just give up
Head down and sacrifice
Why live at all, why live at all, why live at
All around its too much
Too much you've had enough
Just lay back dear breathe in deeply

Nothing to say, nothing to do
Nothing to push the doubt hiding inside of you
Don't fret at all, I bet this is all
In a few years you won't miss you at all

Just give up

Lost myself inside
Until I realized
Outside the wall
All this is small
No worth at
All around not enough
Don't think we've done enough
Don't give in to what comes easy

I've something to say, something to do
Something to prove I'm not who you thought you knew
Don't fret at all, this isn't it at all
Won't be long, You won't miss me at all

{ Helicopter }

What you’re feeling
You don’t know
An emotion
Never shows
Any reason
Isn’t real
What you want
Is what you feel

Where you goin
You don’t know
A direction
Is unknown
Who you are
Isn’t real
What you want
Is what you feel

Why you walk away
Why you walk away
Feeling any shame
Reelin in your ways
Why you walk away
Feeling any shame
Why you walk away

How is this
Playing out
Am I left
With all this doubt
Only feelings
But I’m strong
You were always what was wrong

While you’re leaving
You should know
I’ve already
Let you go
When you’re out there
All alone
I’ll be laughing all the while

You know you can’t be right

{ Everything is Nothing }

They will run in circles
Pay no mind to them
What they say
Not for me

We will burn and beat them
Like they did to us
No we
Won't go away

What you say
Everything is nothing
Not for Me
Everything is nothing

Feel the pulsing ground
Come to tear you down
What you say
We’ll blow away

What we want
And nothing else
Is everything
But you

What we want
And nothing else
Is you

Track Name: Bombs Away
________________________

{ Bombs Away }

Bombs away
Blow up all we've built
Destroy
What for?
We’re just memories of what
We forgot
What's fucked up

Bombs away
Away

It's last call
One last look around
Pull it
Hit the ground
Let the smoke wash all over you
Birthed in blood
There's no other way

Birthed in blood you’re not through
There’s no other way

{ Devolution }

Can't learn new tricks I don't care
Old habits die hard I don't care
Wasted time is all you are
Waste my time yeah you'll go far

Who are you

Cut you out leave you behind
You're brain dead won't even mind
It's okay you'll be just fine
No need to succeed you'll eat your kind

In the future you won't dare
Your incompetence laid bare
No one wonders, no one cares
Everybody everywhere has

No sight
No mind
No life

Out of my way outta my mind
Deafening noise piercing your eyes
Have no patience, have no time
No plans just a reason why

Where are you

Some last words before its goodbye
Drop your shit and I'll drop mine
It’s okay you’ll be just fine
You’re a legend in your own mind

No sight
No mind
No life
No fight
No light
Black eyes
