Biography

Half Drawn was born in the summer of 2004, in the outskirts of Reading, PA. In the wake of "grunge" rock, and the birth of "Nu-Metal", Half Drawn was determined to create a sound to honor the forefathers of rock, yet continue the evolution of modern music.

Half Drawn began writing all original compositions in the summer of 2004, and quickly made their way into the local music scene, immediately entering an Open Mic Night contest @ Chucker Chubbs Bar and Grill, in late August of 2004. After several weeks of competition Half Drawn took home the grand prize as the winner of the Open Mic Night competition.

Not long after their accomplishment in competition, Half Drawn, quickly moved to performing full time in the local music scene at venues such as: Richapalooza, Jessup Musik Fest, Fetzer Fest, Crock Rock, Chameleon Club, Alexanders, Cookie's, Chucker Chubb's, The Silo Nightclub, The Wheelie Bar, and more.

Half Drawn has shared the stage with many National Acts throughout their career, including: Red, Social Burn, Wednesday 13, Deadstar Assembly, Egypt Central, and more. While maintaining their "approachable" personalities, Half Drawn has gained a proud reputation of professionalism and solid work ethic with promoters and colleagues alike.

After years of fine-tuning, line changes, and a progression of genres, Half Drawn has finally produced the product they have been determined to deliver for several years, with their long awaited debut album, "Breaking Free" , set to release in stores worldwide June 21st , 2011. Proving to fans and peers alike that, "Good things come to those who wait."

Lyrics

Ascension

Written By: Half Drawn

Ascension
VERSE 1
Wide awake and dreaming the walls keep closing in
She's been waiting all this time to prove that beauty is within
PRE-CHORUS
And now we see everything she wanted us to see
As she dies on the floor and she begs us for more
As she peels away her skin
CHORUS
The worst is over
So rest your weary head
I'll be your crying shoulder
The world is yours my friend
VERSE 2
Finding love in torture in the hell she's living in
So afraid of the past as she stares through the glass
As her world keeps folding in
PRE-CHORUS
CHORUS
BRIDGE
Hold onto the path that lay before you
Hold on, Hold on
No one can deter you, hurt you
As long as you stay true, fight through
CHORUS 2x

Clear Water

Written By: Half Drawn

CLEARWATER
VERSE 1
I've finally found my reason to live inside this hole
Dig deeper for the missing pieces to my puzzle
CHORUS
Knee deep in the sand, my face within hands
No reason to live, but to prove you wrong
VERSE 2
How can a world that seemed so bright become so cold
As I run faster down this empty shoreline in search of home
Give me one love, one life, one wrong, one right
No war to fight, no hope in sight
This mental picture seems so gray
I will move on, I will be strong, I will survive another night
No matter what you have to say
CHORUS
BRIDGE
The waves keep sweeping me in
Washing away my sin
Finally clear water to purge me in
CHORUS 2x

Taken For Granted

Written By: Half Drawn

Taken For Granted

VERSE 1
Absurd how ignorant your selfish mouth can be
The embers all smoldering from your blitzkrieg mentality

PRE-CHORUS
You torch, you burn, you scorn
The world is dying right before your eyes
I can't stand back and watch while you throw it all away

CHORUS
You take for granted everything
No telling what the future brings
What you count on today is gone, is gone, is gone tomorrow
VERSE 2
Don't turn your back on everything you hold so dear
Cause when your luck runs out you'll finally see

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE
If you defer from the path engraved and laid before you
And all your skies have gone from blue to gray
Never forget where you come from
This is where you'll lay

CHORUS 2x
Gone tomorrow

Veil Of Vanity

Written By: Half Drawn

Veil of Vanity

VERSE 1
You have everything you've ever wanted
Your clothes, your jewelry, your home
And you've come to find that you are all alone
As you stand alone

CHORUS
The fire in your eyes, perfection in sight
Doesn't hide all the damage
Your diamonds, your pearls, your make-up, your curls
Doesn't hide all the damage - 2x

VERSE 2
What sense does it make to throw your smile around?
When they know what's inside
Does the pain wash away your precious vanity?
As you stand alone

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You stand alone - 4x

CHORUS 2x

Seven

Written By: Half Drawn

Seven

INTRO
Let he who does not sin cast the first stone

VERSE 1
Face down on a pillow is where you'll find sympathy
No room for pride
Just turn your back and walk away
Just walk away

VERSE 2
Your demons will follow you
Where ever you may go
So you can run, but you can't hide
Sloth will take the final blow
Sinner

PRE-CHORUS
Envy waits in the window behind red eyes
Wrath will claim you for your lies
You're a glutton for punishment
Greed will take your innocence

CHORUS
You've begged and you've borrowed for far too long
You claim you're right, but we know that you're wrong
How long must we suffer and play along
You think this life is your right, your right
Your right, but you're wrong

BRIDGE
You're so wrong
Your world has come undone it's cascading at the seems
The lust inside your mind is the only one you please
You're so insignificant as you're falling to your knees
Does it make you feel better pointing the finger
Pointing the finger at me?

CHORUS

Sinner
