about

An industrial-laced noise rock, post punk exploration of obsession, coercion, fate and lost love, where the aching embers of burnt out nostalgic bridges are left glowing in the tail lights of a super charged fuzz rock machine.

Track Name: Right Through the Wall
a kingdom made of sand
you never show your hand
build it up
make it stand
to fall down again

substance
innocence
righteous
benevolence
empty
promises
darkest
malevolence
your safety
your dignity
it takes you
for everything
perpetuate
it is your fate
try and fight
but it's too late
coercion
aversion
your total
perversion
temptation
ablation
consuming
fixation

put your head right through the wall
there's nothing there at all
when your head goes through you'll see
there is no you or me
Track Name: Out of My Head
don't want it
i need it
everything i do just feeds it

control me
consume me
nothing left when you're through with me

like a moth
to a flame
on fire
with your name

just a touch
it's all the same
desire
is just a game

I'm falling through
Still chasing you

Can't get you out of my head

you're the poison
and the cure
you're so tainted
it's so pure

I'm half when
you're whole
it keeps taking
its toll

close my eyes
I see your face
nothing else
can take your place

slip away
into the night
hiding
in plain sight
Track Name: The Look in Your Eyes
star crossed
coming on fast
twice as bright
half the last
there's no telling what
you've seen when you look right through

far gone
lights out
feel forever weight
but I have my doubt
there's no telling what
you lose when you let it go

it's a long time coming
now it's falling apart
it's a last ditch knife
cutting straight through the heart
now the stars are all falling
and there's nothing we can do

everything
like a dream
don't look back
you won't hear a scream
I can't feel a thing
I can't feel a thing

tonight I can tell by the look in your eyes
that I won't forget it for the rest of my life
gonna leave me feeling longing and nothing inside
gonna leave me feeling empty yeah high and dry

last chance
lose your innocence
sunset
I got no defense
there's no going back
once you close that door

open road
desert sky
so lost
but not afraid to die
there's no going back
leave everything behind

so lie back honey
it's ok
slow burn engine
gonna lead the way
the world's on fire
and there's nothing we can do

accelerate
perpetuate
don't give a damn
what you think is fate
it's too late
it's too late
Track Name: Here We Are Again
it's a feeling I can't shake
it's a claim that I can't stake
in a loop that doesn't break
it all seems so familiar

no footsteps to retrace
don't recognize my face
and when you come into that place
it all seems so familiar

here we are again

if you think it's passed you by
just when you think you'll try
it will look you in the eye
it all seems so familiar

on the hardest cruelest ground
futility abounds
my guard is dropping down
it all seems so familiar

here we are again

there's nowhere you can run
your head's against the gun
and it plays you just for fun
it all seems so familiar

and you pay the steepest toll
the machine becomes your soul
the heads are gonna roll
it all seems so familiar
Track Name: Was It Love
it was like coming home
in her graceful arms alone
he didn't want to wake up
just swimming in her deep
it feels like the mirror is breaking
shatter like a thousand shining endless longing achings

she asked him was it love
and push came down to shove
standing by the sea
watching helplessly

she took him by the hand
to places far from land
he didn't want to wake up
and the siren sang her song
it feels like the world is shaking
timeless like a moon struck lovers tragedy in making

she asked him was it love
and push came down to shove
standing by the sea
watching helplessly

wrong place
wrong time
wrong words
wrong line

and as she was slipping away
under currents there to betray
he didn't want to wake up
and had that much more to lose
and it feels like the tide is thirsty
sinking like a millstone now it's over, it's over

she asked him was it love
and push came down to shove
standing by the sea
watching helplessly
