We are progressive rock band roots in a large variety of music. Our set consists of not only playing songs straight but we also have a tendancy to go off on unpredicatable jam sessions. If you like Tool, Radiohead, Deftones, King Crimson and the Grateful Dead, you will love this band.

Biography

In Hinduism, Avidya is a term that refers to the ignorance defines our humanity and keeps us trapped in the circle of life and death. We as a band are all about pushing our limitations. Our goal as musicians is to create music that not only defines who we are but that we can enjoy from a place of comfort and vulnerability.

Lyrics

Conflict Need

Written By: Avidya

10 years old I came to see the world in a different light.
I remember the loud chaotic packed streets in a New Delhi night.
Young children wearing nothing but loin clothes selling merchandise.
Desperatly trying to haggle with tourists in the hope of being able to eat that night.

I remember seeing a child my age who I first perceived with pity.
His feet were the size of his torso, his body malnourished as can be.
Yet his eyes stared right back in to mine, as he smiled and waived back warmly.
I was ashamed how I coulod possibly be so goddamn nieve.

Recognize
That we all are just trying to be
Recognize
That all of our differences are skin deep
Recognize
That we all are just trying to be
Recognize
Humanity's conflict need

Eyes dialated, red and frantically searching
Can't be found
Wait, wait, waiting is not an option
The time is now
"Clarity and meaning for existance"
Makes us safe
Safe and sound
We need a higher existance to feel needed
Anyhow

Fear and consequences keep us obeying
Repent for me
What is idealy holy becomes hateful
How crazy
That the idea of love and meaning becomes twisted
By society
To Justify theft, murder, rape and even slavery.

But it is love that opens the door
But it is love that gives us order
But it is love that is what we're looking for
It's love that matters not its form

But it is love that opens the door
But it is love that gives us order
But it is love that is what we're looking for
It's love that matters not its form

Do you dare to reach to the sky
Do you dare to stop turning a blind eye
Do you dare to give peace a try
Through hardwork anything is possible in a matter of time.

I dare
I dare
I dare to open my eyes

I dare
I dare
I dare to speak my mind

I dare
I dare
I dare to stand up for whats right

I dare
I dare
I dare to never say die
