Casting Out Shadows

BandRock

We are a band that wants nothing more than to play good rock music, and spread the word of Jesus Christ. Our songs focus on God, Problems, and solutions to every day choices that we all have to make. We love meeting new people and playing for them, and are ready to give it all to make it happen.

Biography

Ok so first off, being straight forward, we are a band that wants to play lots of Hard rock music, lots of shows, and become a strong band, all while at the same time bringing glory to the big Guy upstairs.

We are currently working on our first album called "A Story Told in Black and White". The album as a whole is based on several circumstances that we've been though with close friends, companions, and those we have truly cared about. With the theme combining pain, regret, sorrow, and ultimately forgiveness as we look back into our pasts as well as the pasts of others to see what should have been, what was, and what is.

We have been described as "Christian/Screamo/Alternative", we use mainly clean vocals, with some screaming here and there, and like to get crazy on stage.

Our Influences:
Emery, Project 86, Subseven, Chevelle, Grammatrain, Red, skillet, 12 stones, P.O.D., underoath, Thrice, Blindside, The Classic Crime, Thousand foot krutch, Spoken, Kids in the Way, Stavesacre, lucerin blue, Disciple, Demon hunter, The Bible, And the most important, Jesus Christ

I think what sets us apart from other bands is, we don't try and go for the same sound that every other bands are going for. We play what we feel. And when we play shows, we like to meet every single person in the audience, we like to shake everyones hand, and even pray for anyone that needs prayer. We are ready to set everything aside, so we can be apart of this tour, and spread the word of God.

Lyrics

Flashlights

Written By: Casting Out Shadows

The only thing I loath
This Self I can't let go
This dark that Follows me
Conflicts with everything

My Thoughts My dreams
(All thats inside of me)
My words my deeds
(All that I try to be)

Let go of me
I wanna watch you bleed, bleed through me and cast out your shadow with light
Just let me be
I wanna be set free, from what chains me and cast out your shadows with light

Myself is hard to love
In me this fight drags on
This dark won't seperate
Could destroy anything

My Thoughts My dreams
(All thats inside of me)
My words my deeds
(All that I try to be)

Let go of me
I wanna watch you bleed, bleed through me and cast out your shadow with light
Just let me be
I wanna be set free, from what chains me and cast out your shadows with light

Were all just casting out
Shadows that hold us down to the things, that we wish we could hide

Let go of me
I wanna watch you bleed, bleed through me and cast out your shadow with light
Just let me be
I wanna be set free, from what chains me and cast out your shadows with light

Silver Screen Duet

Written By: Casting Out Shadows

Thoughtless
Your cutting all the pieces
Manipulating images, just to make yours fit
The effort
Its just pointless, its not worth your time nor mine

I told you time again, but you just wouldn't hear, its a story told in Black and white

I have only one regret, My involvment I wish I'd forget
Your silver screen duet
I have only one regret, My involvment I wish I'd forget Your silver screen duet

Smearing
Colors on a canvas, Your sky just won't turn blue, you've only got grey
The effort
Its just pointless, its not worth your time, nor mine

I told you time again, but you just wouldn't hear, its a story told in Black and white

I have only one regret, My involvment I wish I'd forget
Your silver screen duet
I have only one regret, My involvment I wish I'd forget Your silver screen duet

I Told you so

I told you time again, but you just wouldn't hear, its a story told in Black and white

I have only one regret, My involvment I wish I'd forget
Your silver screen duet
I have only one regret, My involvment I wish I'd forget Your silver screen duet

Better Day

Written By: Casting Out Shadows

Hiding In a lie
Never Knowing why
But walking away would bring a better day for
You and I, A better day for
you and I (You and I)

Because this is, Didn't we say this was the last time, Because I know that, I wouldn't be this dead inside
Now I'm walking away, this is to tell you its a better day, and this time (this time) Could be it could be the last time

Back again, my circle, it never ends, Your lips something I missed (back in my grasp again) Would this bring
A better day for, you and I (Will we ever know why)

Because this is, Didn't we say this was the last time, Because I know that, I wouldn't be this dead inside
Now I'm walking away, this is to tell you its a better day, and this time (this time) Could be it could be the last time

Now looking back, you've lost everything(Theres no going back) So now I am, and be better someday, Cause this is, The last time I feel better this, I feel better this time

Because this is, Didn't we say this was the last time, Because I know that, I wouldn't be this dead inside
Now I'm walking away, this is to tell you its a better day, and this time (this time) Could be it could be the last time

Let It Clear

Written By: Casting Out Shadows

I laid my head down to see a face
A light upon my head, held me in place. The blurred Visions go by without a break. Careless to help I can't walk away

Keep making the same mistake, Every image you've made went wrong, and you didn't escape
You should never of answered him, Tried not to be his friend, cause it lead up to this

The distorted figure begins to fade. The less I see the more I need to gaze. You left your last attempt to win. The same battle that you should have never been in.

Keep making the same mistake, Every image you've made went wrong, and you didn't escape
You should never of answered him, Tried not to be his friend, cause it lead up to this

Let the fog clear so I can see you (x4)
Your me

Let the fog clear so I can see you(x6)

I cared so much, so much, More than I should ever have, you are so lost, I'm so sorry i wish that i could have saved you, I cared so much, so much.

Let the fog clear so I can see, your me.
