Biography

The Beginning:

Between 2008-2010, Trevor Matthews and Dan Carret were members of the Mississauga-based rock band December Flood. In early 2011, the two founded Asleep in the Machine and were in search of a strong lead vocalist. Enter Nick Cerny, who Trevor met in high school and kept in touch with over the years. Trevor had seen Nick perform a few times and was impressed with his singing ability. As such, Nick was the first singer they contacted and the rest is history!

Recent News:

AitM is playing shows in the Greater Toronto Area and released their first two singles "Bones" and "Lonely Lives" on iTunes in March of 2012. As of April, the band's primary focus is to play bigger venues and increase their following with the hopes of one day becoming a true Canadian success story.

Lyrics

Bones

Written By: Asleep in the Machine

Intro:
(Nick) Yeah!!!

Verse 1:
(Nick) I feel my bones explode when I’m in the rhythm, the beat goes on and I can’t stop it, it lives so deep inside...
When the sun comes up it flows through our veins, the moon unhides, we all go insane, it reads so clear in the sky…

Chorus:
(Dan) How can I stand with you on my back, how can I fight with you always talking about…

(Nick) Rainbows in flight...

(Dan) I can hardly breathe without you by my side, but I can only hang by this noose for so long…

(Nick) Because it reads so clear in the sky…

Verse 2:
(Nick) When you’re always racing to the finish line, you gotta formulate a sense of time, manipulate from inside...
I got a feeling that you’re getting close, could be all in my head, I just don’t know, it reads so clear in the sky…

Chorus:
(Dan) How can I stand with you on my back, how can I fight with you always talking about…

(Nick) Rainbows in flight...

(Dan) I can hardly breathe without you by my side, but I can only hang by this noose for so long…

(Nick) Because it reads so clear in the sky…

Bridge:
(Nick) I feel my bones explode when I’m in the rhythm, the beat goes on and I can’t stop it, it lives so deep inside...
When the sun comes up it flows through our veins, the moon unhides, we all go insane, it reads so clear in the sky…

Chorus:
(Dan) How can I stand with you on my back, how can I fight with you always talking about…

(Nick) Rainbows in flight...

(Dan) I can hardly breathe without you by my side, but I can only hang by this noose for so long…

(Nick) Because it reads so clear in the sky…

Lonely Lives

Written By: Asleep in the Machine

Intro:
(Dan and Nick) Yeah, Yeah...

Verse 1:
(Nick) I was under the impression that we're all the same, the forgery of smiling, I guess we're all to blame...
When these gates close at 5 and then it's time to go, are we all in pain?

Chorus:
(Nick) We live such lonely lives,
(Dan) Underneath the blood and sweat,
(Nick) Leading to our own demise,
(Dan) In case you haven't noticed yet,
(Nick) We live such lonely lives,
(Dan) Underneath the blood and sweat,
(Nick) Leading to our own demise,
(Dan) In case you haven't noticed yet,

Verse 2:
(Nick) In case you haven't noticed, I've seen you through,
(Dan) Seen you through...
(Nick) The weakness when you're eyes grin, kid I've seen your truth,
(Dan) Seen your truth...
(Nick) When these gates close at 5 and then it's time to go, are we all in pain?

Chorus:
(Nick) We live such lonely lives,
(Dan) Underneath the blood and sweat,
(Nick) Leading to our own demise,
(Dan) In case you haven't noticed yet,
(Nick) We live such lonely lives,
(Dan) Underneath the blood and sweat,
(Nick) Leading to our own demise,
(Dan) In case you haven't noticed yet,

Outtro:

(Nick) We live such lonely lives, with no one left to love,
We live such lonely lives, with no one left to love,
We live such lonely lives, with no one left to love,
We live such lonely lives, leading to our own demise...
