BandAlternativeRock

Ethereal gutars...intense honest vocals. An immediate immersion into the sounds of Pearl Jam and The Cure. Dark stoner rock, without the drugs.

Biography

Affirming The Consequent is made up of four musicians each determined to make his own sound; and by doing so individually, the band has created songs that are diverse yet definitive. A single song may sound a bit bluesy, a bit country, a bit off-the-wall; yet all are easily recognizable to the listener as having been written and performed by the same band. Reviewers, fans, and the band itself have trouble fitting the band’s sound into a rock sub-genre, or comparing it to other well-known acts. Yet it is undeniable that ATC is a great rock band who gets a positive response wherever they play. This trend was never more in evidence than when ATC received such a good response at the famous Viper Room in Hollywood that the crowd called for an encore, on their first time playing the venue. Having had encouraging success touring in the southwest U.S., ATC is now seeking national management and record label support in order to expand its audience and bring its music to as many listeners as possible.

Lyrics

Waiting For The A/C

Written By: Derrick Espadas

I still think about
the comfort of dark
the warmth of numbing skin

I see your smile turn to
teardrops
and I fade to where I
begin

Can't fight memories
dreams that won't let
me sleep
monologue
soliloquey
answers only I keep

why won't you leave me
better to be fed for a sick
underpinning
for a sin to be dead

naked and cock soft
in the light of 3 AM
wondering to starve
3 more days or sleep
9 instead

i'm just a joker
my king a slave
can't dream a future
that he won't change

naked eyes
demand favor
in the most immediate
of ways

why won't you leave me
better to be fed for a sick
underpinning
for a sin to be dead

not so prophetic
with answers half wed
i wish i was the image
we all kept in our heads

I wish I was the image
and not the contempt
i wish I was the image
and not this life half spent

Letters

Written By: ATC

Gathering up regrrets like it's something to achieve
hanging like pretty flower art
framed in a heartless
shapeless mind
it felt just like vacation
now there's debts to be
paid and all your silly
fantasies of me
I'm so happy to see go
away

Well I found the letter
that you hid for me
to find
all your purple markings
supposed stregnth to your
flight
and all your expectations
that you're never going
to see
as I read your letter
and it falls away from me

now you always told me
that i could never be trusted
my only existence
to be needed by your need
and your grand illusions
for my simple existence
to be oh so great
just never to dream

Well I found the letter
that you hid for me
to find
all your purple markings
supposed stregnth to your
flight
and all your expectations
that you're never going
to see
as I read your letter
and it falls away from me

now I must admit
I'm not use to being on this
side
like a new born king with
lands to divide
but I love to see you
crawling back on hands
and knees
to live this fucking hell
this fucking hell with me

Well I found the letter
that you hid for me
to find
all your purple markings
supposed stregnth to your
flight
and all your expectations
that you're never going
to see
as I read your letter
and it falls away from me

Now don't you lie
I know you love to see
me writhing around in
all this pain
I'm the one who has to live
with silly thoughts of when I'd
say
just go away
fucking go away
I said leave
be nothing but a memory
close that door
Just fucking leave

Burn A Politician

Written By: ATC


Save the world burn a politician
let's watch that fucker bleed
throw some gas, light a match
listen to his skin hiss and bleed
save the world, make someone proud
burn yourself a politician

backroom deals put a mark on your soul
not like ya got one
sold out so long ago
your impovrished mansion
such a sorry sight
built by the blood of man
I say stand and fight
save the world, mare someone proud
burn yourself a politician

violence ain't an answer
it's just a means
you label me a criminal
an unpatriotic disease
well..........
I'M JUST TIRED OF YOUR
LYING
YOUR WHORING
YOUR FUCKING SELF-ENTITLEDMENT
YOUR GIVING UP OF AMERICAN
LIVES AND SOULS
JUST FATTEN UP YOUR POCKETS
AND THE POCKETS OF YOUR
CORPORATE BITCHES
WHILE KILLING OFF TRUE AMERICAN
SOULS
AND THEN YOU STAND THERE AND
QUESTION WHAT WE WANT FROM YOU
WE JUST WANT YOU TO DIE!!!!!!!!!!!

while you're riding lime rides with your whores
snorting coke off a bible spine with the people
you adore
finding anyway, that you can to make a living
milked off of someone else's hands
save the world
make someone proud
burn yourself a politician

Coming Home

Written By: Affirming The Consequent/Geoffrey J

Coming Home Some times When you call my name I can feel the tears build half a world away some how I hear you and miss the things that we argued through our silly ramblings And I sit here with my friends dusted, alone counting away the days some say we're heroes while we just say just get me home to see your smiling face my duty as a man I'm coming home my duty as a man I'm coming home Too many times I've seen them cry holding on to a memory never saying goodbye loading up no satin no lace and when you get home there's no happy parade my duty as a man I'm coming home my duty as a man I'm coming home when my son isn't smiling my loved ones holding on to lost home And I hear her crying "no" I'm coming home It's my last yesterday everything in light soon fades away something coming near too cold to run away Dear Lord I'm not ready please forgive me my duty as a man I'm coming home my duty as a man I'm coming home Dear son just know there isn't a thing that's your fault And I hear my friends callin' So sorry darlin' I'm coming home
