Taking its name from a stolen racehorse , Coppermine combines a driving hard rock sound (borrowing elements of punk, metal, rap and even jazz) with emotional, socially conscious lyrics.

Guiding Light

Written By: Jon / Coppermine

As you make your way through this today the questions come but u still cant say how did you get so far from where you were goin way back then now you
Do what youre told you do what they say a fuckin robot nothin to say when will i get to see the things i been lookin 4
and its got you Wonderin
Did you lose that guidin light along the way did you find yourself just searchin for a brand new place where you could just be yourself
and every time i look i cant find a way im stuck right here just doing this every day its takin me where i dont care
any more where i go but i know its just a way to not feel this today i wanna go where i can build something that stays
and make this into something more and its got you Wonderin
Did you lose that guidin light along the way did you find yourself just searchin for a brand new place where you could just be yourself
i feel you there and it makes me wanna be be somthing more and find that part of me i feel you there and it makes me wanna be be something
and every time i look i cant find a way im stuck right here just doing this every day its takin me where i dont care any more where i go but i know its just a way to not feel this today i wanna go where i can build something that stays
and take me from all this and its got you Wonderin
Did you lose that guidin light along the way did you find yourself just searchin for a brand new place where you could just be and its got you Wonderin
Did you lose that guidin light along the way did you find yourself just searchin for a brand new place where you could just be?

Suffocating

Written By: Tim/Jon - Coppermine

you know that i dont want to but i have to get away
youre tryin to hold on to me but it can never work this way
i feel when you keep lookin in on every little thing i do
and so i’ll turn around til I find a place where i can move cause you got me
suffocating cant go out any more you hold it over me i’m
suffocating its not the same any more why do i feel like i gotta get away
i was not perfect back in those days but thats been said and done
i showed you that i could change my ways you were still the only one you know
why cant we just move find a better ... place like we used to
but instead you keep watchin my every move instead of hearing the words im saying to you im
suffocating cant go out any more you hold it over me i’m
suffocating better set me free now
I cant find my direction ... I cant get no escape ... you say we've lost all connection ...
I can't keep going this way ....
you know that i dont want to but i have to get away
youre tryin to hold on to me but it can never work this way
we gotta change find something new find what we’re doing this for
cause the way its going i cant feel a thing you gotta let me breathe let me out this door I’m
suffocating cant go out any more you hold it over me i’m
suffocating feels like i cant breathe anymore when youre controlling me and all this
time we’re just wastin it and if im not around anymore its that i cant take when u got me suffocating

Don't Take Your Love Away

Written By: Jon - Coppermine

i dont think i can make it today
dont leave me alone in this room with just memories oh dont take your love away i dont think i can make it
if i cant feel you so baby please dont take your love away

when was the last time you called me and said what are you doin tonight its all changin dont take your love away
dont leave me alone in this room with just memories oh dont take your love away i dont think i can make it
when was the last time you could just be and give yourself before it pulled you right back down like this
when was the last time i look around but theres nothin for me here .. just the fear of what i know is comin i know its comin tonight its all changin dont take your love away
dont leave me alone in this room with just memories oh dont take your love away i dont think i can make it
if i cant feel you somewhere dont take your love away

dont leave me alone in this room with just memories oh dont take your love away i dont think i can make it today
dont leave me alone in this room with just memories oh dont take your love away i dont think i can make it
if i cant feel you so baby please dont take your love away
