Chris Jackson This band this the best metal / hardcore band east of Montreal. I might be a little biased, but they are very, very good. the music is super good and there isn't a bad track on this album. It's local (for me) music at it's finest and highly recommended. Favorite track: Stay East.

Track Name: Wire This
What was that you're looking for?
A useless part for an empty core
Distractions you create
Can you feel the ever growing presence?

It's so god damn silly
The way they bicker and fight
And it's somewhat off putting
Chasing myself in a dream last night

But then again maybe I was being chased
All my drinks being laced
Anxiety strikes, short term erased
Who the fuck do I think I am?

I feel like I'm always lying
Even tho I tell the truth
Surely my soul has been dying
How can I not give a damn

Short of breath from
Endless bad choices
Please just let me
Silence these voices

Short of breath from
Endless bad choices
Please just let me
Silence these voices

I was most definitely chasing myself
And it was probably for my own life
My dreams are so full of murder
A carpet, a body, and a knife
Track Name: Lashes
Here we go again
With this bullshit/silly game
Loss of all trust
So full of blame
Words fly like rocks
Secrets in talk
Some endless game
Some endless game

When all the trust
disappears
All were left with
Feels like broken bones

Such unhappy tones
Soon we go astray 2

When all the trust
disappears .. Disappears
All were left with
Feels like broken bones

Fuck the happy times
Fuck all the lies
Eyes full of hate
I was always late

Build up

We made that love seem like it was hell.
Track Name: Lightning Nights
Wake up drunk and see what you've become
Take control of your interactions
what the fuck do you expect the be when
this time next year comes rolling around

Be anything you want
What a bullshit lie
You'll be nothing at all
Unless you go and try


Wake up drunk and see what you've become
your wasting your life partying all along


We've been here before and returned to find our future in an urn
They promised us everything
Our odds are decreasing with each and every word we say,
Let's make a getaway

what the fuck do you expect the be when
you can't even force yourself to put that bottle down

A memory haunts
all of my time
It follows me
It follows me, in all my dreams

We've been here before and returned to find our future in an urn
They promised us everything
Our odds are decreasing with each and every word we say,
Let's make a getaway

Build up

In between days and nights
Thoughts rise,
In between nights and days
anxiety
In between days and nights
Those eyes
2
Track Name: Stay East
theres no revolution in a bottle
weve been crippled by comforting false promises
i've seen this before, you're sick of the same old
(sick of the same old)
we need a new leader

were all viewers of disasters, we cant shake our desire to live this lie (living this lie) youre just a bystander, just a spectator, and you're watching the start of the end

you're just a bystander, just a spectator, and you're watching the start of the end. our privilidge is a curse, theres never been a need.

we hide in unison,click here to free
the unjustly accused,to stand for whats right
we're all cowards, we're all yellow

theres a realization to be had, we are all destined to fall to our knees you're just a bystander, just a spectator, and you're watching the start of the end our privilege is a curse, theres never been a need

we hide in unison , click here to free
the unjustly accused, to stand for whats right.
its d-day again on the beaches of normandy.

you're just a liar
just a liar
you're just a liar
just a liar

you're a fucking liar, you're afraid to get dirty, afraid to lose what you've got, you lie to yourself.
Track Name: 4043 KM
Eyes full of holes
Mind full of empty thoughts
Wish I could grow happiness
Or fill a burial plot

Five fingers. This drink is
Two bloodied. Consuming
This game is My eyes still
Embodied deceive me

Shot glasses naile coffins
Angry words tell me we failed
Words flare
What is it I'm supposed to do running scared?
Mistakes made were made without thought
Without care

I make such a silly remark
All my memory's in the dark
How do you drink so much
Losing face is too easy
So we always sleep in our hands
And forget these evenings

(This next part is randy)

I am nothing like you thought I was
And you are nothing that you said you were
Let's just give it all up because
There is nothing to fix this, there is no cure

I never lie, but you never trust
Track Name: Leslie Alexander
Open your eyes to this, for all we know this could be the end.
forget what you know, the legends you're told. the fear within, your anchor, your demise free your feet from the earth
the comfort we've all come to know

Close your eyes and think of the things we've thrown away, for the things that we all hate.

Open your eyes to this. for all we know this could be the end

Yelling at a puppet for the way that it sings. Whose the man behind the curtain, the one who pulls the strings? a scapegoat, a face to put the blame? A mirror to look in shame?

Close your eyes and think of the things we've thrown away, for the things that we all hate

We bite the hand that feeds, we fight for simple needs. you call the shots, forever ongoing plots. represent us. promising well flourish
to a blinding light we look. our mother to nourish
we bite the hand that feeds.
we fight for nothing

whose the man whose pulling on the strings
Track Name: ...Probably Not
I have worked all my nights away
And said fuck it to most of my days
Spent all my money on booze and
Weekends forgetful with play

Money doesn't seem to be
Something I can handle
In a constant gamble
In a constant battle

It seems I sold my soul
For a bottle of whiskey but
Somewhere along the way
I think I musst have gotten lost

Awful decisions
Nights so long
Missed calls cold falls
Days too short, nights so long
If all of these bad decisions never end
How could life go on
I lost all my good thoughts to lend
I can't wait to move on
Track Name: The Queen
I'm better off talking to the wall
Or bury myself in the thought of throwing you through it
Not one good thing comes from your mouth
And like your mind, god knows what goes through it
Carrying on, not giving a shit
I'll cut you down
High on your horse no more

Misled intentions are your every thought
On top of the stories you've pulled from thin air
You've dug too deep,you've crossed the line

But you've done no wrong

Cold hearted and hot headed

It was fucked from the start

The top of your own fucking world
I've been been a pawn for too long

I'll cut you down
Torn from your throne
Fuck
I'll cut you down
Tear you from your throne
Fuck you

Misled intentions are your every thought
On topm of the stories you've pulled from thin air
You've dug too deep,you've crossed the line

Cold hearted and hot headed

it was fucked from the start
