When Cosmic Heat Engine plays they make their own mix of half acoustic half electric heart-pumping psychedelia-indie infused rock music that is unlike any other.

Biography

Genre: Indie Rock and Roll
From: Wichita, KS, USA
MySpace: http://myspace.com/cosmicheatengine

Members:
Stephen Bishop (Lead Vocals/Keyboard)
Kyle Coronado (Bass)
Cody Jessup (Drums/Percussion)
Carlos Malache (Guitar, Vocals)
Evan Ogborn (Guitar, Banjo, Vocals)

Cosmic Heat Engine started in 2007 and evolved into the 5 piece it is today. They make rock music that they spent much time writing throughout the lifetime of the band. It first started as a jam between Evan, Carlos, and two acoustic guitars. Cody was soon picked up as a drummer. After that, Kyle was recruited on bass and Stephen on vocals and keyboard. What you're hearing is three years of constant change in writing styles and dynamics; tones and genres; feelings and sensations. Every member of the band puts his unique flavoring to the Cosmic Heat Engine cake. Cody many a time adds a modern rock or reggae feel depending on the song. Kyle pumps his heavy bass lines out or takes his time on creating a melodic blend of slow moving emotion. Evan adds his take on bluegrass and alternative rock while Carlos sprinkles his touch of blues laced classic rock licks. Stephen adds a feel all his own from his unique voice qualities to create melodies that catch not only the attention but imagination of their listeners.

Cosmic Heat Engine plays an energetic live show that is fun for anyone in the midst of their music.

In August 2009, they released their first studio album, Room On The Moon.

They hope to keep playing for years to come, and to spread their music across the globe.

Lyrics

Ride

Written By: Cosmic Heat Engine

The game has reached it's only place
The man has seen his final days
He has found where he belongs
And now...
He will, live his life well

And he'll ride this light til the end of time
Til the sun comes up rising from the west

The man has seen where he's wanted to be
Where no one else can ride and no one can see
This eternal voyage goes beyond land and see through me
So put down all your hopes aside
Never let you get a ride
On this ship bound for these cloudy skies

And he'll ride this light til the end of time
Til the sun comes up rising from the west

[Solo]

Ride this light til the end of time
Til the sun comes up rising from the west

Ride this light til the end of time
Til the sun comes up rising from the west

Rocket Easy

Written By: Cosmic Heat Engine

This goes to the poet's goodbye this goes down to soar the see
The world wants us to move in a way that we can hardly be
And our presence lifts and moves and grooves it's way to the top
And drops

And that's why no-one can be
And that's why no-one can be yeah

This goes the single mothers homeless brothers and their kids
It's a call to arms for flawlessness an arms race to co-exist

That's why no-one can be yeah
That's why no-one can be

[Solo]

And in this world we live to fight in
The mess halls of our children's minds
Divide them by these countless times

And that's why no-one can be
That's why no-one can be, yeah

Sweet Vinyl

Written By: Cosmic Heat Engine

I'm sitting in the front with my two and ten
And I'm sucking on eggs and sippin' on gin
Asphalt greys I see your Ford
Knowing I ain't gonna see you no more
I look into the street eyes on the prize
Never ever wanna say

Goodbye
Goodbye
And we'll never ever be here again

It was an arrow straight shot to the bottom of the drop
But I'm picking up speed and I'm heading for the top
Got along great in the afternoon, girl I hope to see you soon
Well it was never really hard for us to try
Now I never wanna say

Goodbye
Goodbye
And we'll never ever be here again

[Solo]

Walk into the yard hands on my head
Fuel injection systems have long been dead
Little yellow body up on the block
Mitsubishi drama's got me in shock
Well it was never really hard for us to try
Now I never wanna say

Goodbye
Goodbye
And we'll never ever be here
Again
Again
And we'll never ever be here again

Love Without Intentions

Written By: Cosmic Heat Engine

Tell me, I wanna write a thousand words
That show me, what exactly you have heard
And know me, I'm not exactly quick to judge
So why I'm stuck here and you won't budge

Sometimes it's the wrong turns let you get all you have to gain
Sometimes it's the windows let you see there is no pain
Sometimes it's the little things, they let you get away

So tell me, I wanna write a thousand words
That show me, what exactly you have heard
And know me, I'm not exactly quick to judge
So why do you move if you never love

When the time falls and you see you can't do anything just be
Don't let it bother you, you'll see
The things that matter most are hidden underneath the smallest trees
And they'll be, and they'll be
Exactly what you know you'll see

So tell me, you wanna write a thousand words
That show me, what exactly I have heard
And know me, I'm not exactly quick to question
The only love without intentions
The only love without intentions
The only love without intentions

Blow

Written By: Cosmic Heat Engine

Little girl you came outside the lines
Did you think that everyone was blind?
You’re just what we needed all these years
Had to many now you’re just in tears

Kick up some blow
From under my nose
Give that bass a hammer
And make the beat flow

Now take a deep breath
It’s coming on slow
And hold your head on tight
Cuz round and round it goes

Kick up some blow
From under my nose
Give that bass a hammer
And make the beat flow

She comes and she goes
Some call her snow
Mrs. White will leave you
Just before you wanna go
Just before you wanna go

[Bass/Drum/Guitar Solos]

Kick up some blow
From under my nose
Give that bass a hammer
And make the beat flow

Just Like Johnny

Written By: Cosmic Heat Engine

I turned on the TV channel, what I see
There's a thousand scary faces they're all staring back at me
I have been a real man since I was conceived
But just like, Johnny someone set me

Free, yeah
Someone set me
Free, yeah
Someone set me

I once came within a foot of being dead as can be
But Johnny stopped that paper from ever being seen
People laughing saying nothing such as OPD
But in Canada some like to say I got set

Free, yeah
Someone set me
Free, yeah
Someone set me

When the light changed it was raining, I wouldn't have guessed
She was tugging on my sweater for a minute or less
Johnny said some things he probably didn't mean
Now I'm sitting in a coffin but I'm so damn free

Free, yeah
Someone set me
Free, yeah
Someone set me

[Solo]
