Biography

agent jane is a Progressive Modern Alt-Rock band from Memphis, TN. Soaring vocals that mutate into distorted whispers overlay a backdrop of dynamic and artistic instrumentation. Odd metered percussion rhythms mesh with pulsing heavy syncopated bass lines to create a collage of textures in which the towering industrial guitars layer into. Together these elements stir feelings of energy and movement that give birth to a modern sound with soul-piercing attitude. agent jane’s sound evolved from a fusion of alternative rock and progressive metal. Being more artistic than trendy, it is difficult to put agent jane’s diverse sound in a neat little box. The music reaches deep down into a gloomy underworld and explodes into blinding light; reminiscent of The Cure’s ability to be both ugly and beautiful. Old-school Black Sabbath riffs and hallowing vocals merged with strong new-school songwriting evoke feelings of a heavy Radiohead. Hallucinogenic jazz-like time signatures weave into dominant grooves to create an atmosphere of vulnerability and uncertainness. Songs will flow from a soft Jeff Buckley touch to an Alice in Chains-like ferocity. The arrangement of each song is completely unique and will take listeners on a journey of vivid emotions.

Lyrics

Hollow

Written By: agent jane

Take this empty vessel
Fill me with your love
My heart breaks, when i think of
This evil I am made of
Rain down your gentle healing
Cleanse my eyes, give them meaning

I'm breaking down these walls
I'm gonna rise again
You've taken on this world, I know that we can win
My trust is getting weak
I hold you so damn close
My pain embraces me

Reach down, speak to me
There's power, in your touch
One word, would mean so much
Just one word, would heal so much

I'm breaking down these walls
I'm gonna rise again
You've taken on this world, I know that we can win
My trust is getting weak
I hold you so damn close
My pain embraces me

Time won't heal, these open wounds
These open, open wounds
And I by myself, can't stand by myself
I need you, I need you

I'm breaking down these walls
I'm gonna rise again
You've taken on this world, I know that we can win
My trust is getting weak
I hold you so damn close
My pain embraces me, my empty soul
I'm trusting, for you to, release me
I hold you so damn close
I'm trusting, release me
I hold you so damn close
My trust is getting weak
My pain embraces me

The Night

Written By: agent jane

You found my secret place
I really don't know how
I never even see your face
I only hear you, whisper

And we're wasting so much time, you and me
Chasing dreams that never were meant to be
I can't have you in my life anymore
You take away the peace that I've been living for

Your voice is on the wind
Blowing through my mind
I try so hard with no avail
To live my life like, I never feel you

And we're wasting so much time, you and me
Chasing dreams that never were meant to be
I can't have you in my life anymore
You take away the peace that I've been living for

When you come around
I feel so cold, so dark, so overcast
When you storm this place
I feel so lost, so found, so out of space
When you call my name
I turn to see and find you've disappeared

And we're wasting so much time, you and me
Chasing dreams that never were meant to be
I can't have you in my life anymore
Cause you take away the peace that I've been living for
And we're wasting so much time, you and me
Chasing dreams that never were meant to be
I can't have you in my life anymore
You take away the peace that I've been living for

Wasted

Written By: agent jane

Finding myself again locked up in this old house, wasted
Oh no i can't be doing this
If i can make it through the day I'll find some peace, maybe I'll die
Oh no i can't be saying this

Its the worst ever feeling
To be restless and craving

In my mind I'm fine, gonna be so fine, flying
Can you see, do you see me now, far away, above and how I'm flying

Telling myself this is the last time, I'll be wasted
I'm lying to myself again
One drink One pill won't hurt this won't turn into me becoming wasted
This demon is so full of it

And I am so defenseless
When it comes to this mess

In my mind I'm fine, gonna be so fine, flying
Can you see, do you see me now, far away, above and how I'm flying

O.......no!
I'm not messed up again
So in my head again
O.......no!
I'm so wasted again
Knee deep in it again

In my mind I'm fine, gonna be so fine, flying
Can you see, do you see me now, far away, above and how I'm flying

Reflection

Written By: agent jane

I.......m not scared
O......f you (X2)

Creeping so soft ever so desperately
In the shadows of the mind
Moving within the space and there's no time
Looking for someone like me

I.......m not scared
O......f you (X2)

Promise the world if only i concede
Deny the only ones that love me
You stand to gain my only precious thing
The life below beneath my sin

I know you, you demon over me, I let go of this, my disease
I.......m not scared
O......f you (X2)
So little truth behind soft eyes
The sting i taste in my sight
You weave an argument so clean
The world is yours so it seems

I know you, you demon over me, I let go of this, my disease

I.......m, I.......m
I.......m, I.......m, not scared
I.......m, I.......m,
I.......m, not scared, of you
