Biography

Music has a profound effect on the listener. It even has the power to lift spirits and change lives. ” If we can see our music change a life for the better, then we’ve been paid in the kind of way we hope to be.” With their debut EP release “Life on Mute”, Abide threatens to change lives in such a way that the sheer expanse of its scope is unforeseeable, conjuring the most brilliant creative moments of Chevelle, Thrice, and Third Eye Blind, while alternately sounding refreshingly original. The vocals are unique, the lyrics hopeful, and the boys’ hearts are all in the right place. Abide is a fresh take on old rock n’ roll sound for a generation hungry to be heard. Abide will leave their mark on the musical landscape with “Life on Mute.” Don’t worry about the over-saturation of “the scene.” This band stands apart. Everywhere these four guys go, they capture the hearts of fans. They have swayed hardcore kids to jump and clap along to their indie rock sound as others watch the same crowd walk out the door only moments before. Keep your eyes on these good ol’ boys as they remix a refreshing brand of rock and roll.

Lyrics

My Own

Written By: Abide

CAN WE BREAK IT UP, CAN WE BREAK IT UP, YEAH

VERSE 1:

BY MYSELF IN A BRAND NEW LAND
I WAS LOSING MY GRIP ON YOUR NAIL-SCARRED HAND
DOVE RIGHT IN, I WAS EVER SO SURE
YOU WOULD CARRY ME THRU TO THE OTHER SHORE
AND NOW, WILL I MAKE IT ALL THE WAY?
ALL THE WAY, YEAH

CHORUS:

I KNOW YOU, YOU’RE THE KEEPER OF MY LIFE
WHEN I’M TERRIFIED AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M GONNA FIND
I SEE YOU WHEN I’M ALL ALONE AND BLIND
I WILL TRUST IN YOU ‘CAUSE MY LIFE IS NOT MY OWN, MY OWN

VERSE 2:

ARE YOU STILL THERE? ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME?
BECAUSE MY LIGHTS HAVE GONE DARK AND I CAN’T SEE THE STREETS.
LONGING FOR CALM ON THIS BATTLEFEILD
I WILL FIGHT UNTIL YOU WILL BRING ME PEACE
O WILL I EVER UNDERSTAND YOU

Rollercoaster

Written By: Abide

VERSE 1:

UP ON THE MOUNTAINTOP I AM THE KING
I’VE GOT A HANDLE ON EVERYTHING, EVERYBODY OWES ME
IN A MOMENT EVERYTHING IS COMIN’ CRASHIN’ DOWN
IS THERE SOMETHIN’ WRONG WITH ME?
I HESITATED AND I FEEL LIKE I LOST EVERYTHING
NOW I HAVE TO START AGAIN

CHORUS:

LIFE IS A ROLLER COASTER, TAKES ME UP AND DOWN
STRAP ME IN WITH YOUR STRONG HAND SO I DON’T FALL OUT
LIFE IS A CRAZY RIDE, SOMETIMES I JUST WANT OUT
STRAP ME IN WITH YOUR STRONG HAND SO I DON’T FALL OUT

VERSE 2:

DOWN IN THE ROCKY VALLEY WHEN TIMES GET TOUGH
ANYTIME I RUN AWAY FROM ANYTHING
THE SITUATION GETS WORSE
BUT I FIGURE THAT IF I CAN ONLY MAKE IT THRU
ONE MORE NIGHT OF THIS DESPAIR
YOU WILL PICK ME UP AND SET ME ON MY FEET AGAIN
BETTER DAYS ARE STRAIGHT AHEAD

CHORUS

BRIDGE: FALL OUT, DON’T LET ME FALL OUT

To the Moon

PRE CHOR:

THIS IS THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
HERE COMES THE HAPPY ENDING
THERE ARE NO CLOSING STATEMENTS
WE HAVE ONE SHOT, SO TAKE IT

VERSE 1:

STANDING ON THE EDGE OF SOMETHING
WAITING, TOMORROW WON’T COME CLOSE ENOUGH
LOOKING BACK ON YESTERDAY’S BROKEN DREAMS
CLEARLY THIS IS SOMETHING THAT TODAY HAS NEVER SEEN

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS:

EVERYTHING WE SOW WE REEP
HIDDEN THINGS ARE NOT SO SECRET
EVERYTHING WE SOW WE REEP
HIDDEN THINGS ARE NOT SO SECRET
HIDDEN THINGS ARE NOT SO SECRET (2X)

VERSE 2:

SEE IT COMING OVER THE HORIZON YONDER
BREAKING THRU AS DISTANT MOMENTS PASS US BY
WATCHING SHATTERED PIECES OF OUR LIVES BE RESTED
TRUSTING IN THE ONE THING ALWAYS LIVING FOR TODAY

PRE CHORUS
