It's all about the melodies and the music. Nothing else...

Biography

Nestled in the heart of Montreal, Canada, this quartet of musical talent met minds in mid 2008. Their union was based on one thing only, music. As all 4 members were experienced in many aspects of the music industry, they incurred knowledge through multiple DYI tours in extremely rough conditions from the outskirts of Milan to the vibrancy of the San Diego music scene. Their determination and talents are both necessary elements to create and exploit the captivating music known today as Dexter’s Diary.

The spring of 2010 proved to be the most mentionable of all experiences as Dexter’s Diary got together to track their first demo with well renowned Montreal producer, Gautier Marinof at Piccolo Studios. After a few short sessions, the demo included in this package was produced, mixed and mastered. The band’s incredible acceptance to constructive criticism paid off as the result has been rattling the Montreal music scene since it’s conception.

Lyrics

Praising Grounds

Written By: Dexter's Diary

I stop to think
But it’s only cause I never knew where to be
I’ve marked the dream, like a point in time
Just get me out of here
I’ve never belonged in this silent memory
A burden I’ve believed
I’ve never belonged….with thee

Breathe the air and hail the world
I am rising from earth
And the sooner I call
The closer I fall into nothing….

Praise me
Maybe faith is waiting here
Embracing me
Tonight, tonight I’ll believe it alright
Haze me
Cause there is no one to seek
The burned down, lost memory
Tonight, tonight I’ll believe it alright

I stop to think
But it’s only cause I’ve always liked pulling the strings
But never looking grin
Would you? Would you believe in all this world if you could shrink
They said…everything is set I’m running clearly
Everything went down now I can sink in
Would you? Would you believe in all this world, such a broken world….

Praise me
Maybe faith is waiting here
Embracing me
Tonight, tonight I’ll believe it alright
Haze me
Cause there is no one to seek
The burned down, lost memory
Tonight, tonight I’ll believe it alright

Breathe the air and hail the world
I am rising, I am rising from earth

Jumpstart

Written By: Dexter's Diary

You came here first
I’ve carried the worst part
I’ve felt in the dirt
Just waiting for a jumpstart

But when you came
You struck twice
And I can’t be here if you are

I am waiting to get out of your heart
Forget what the chances are
Waiting to get out of your heart
I just can’t get it, we’ll grow apart

You’ve caused me harm
I’ve let it become one anyhow
But your words ain’t worth your doubts

But then…when you came
You struck twice
And I can’t be here if you are

I am waiting to get out of your heart
Forget what the chances are
Waiting to get out of your heart
I just can’t get it, we’ll grow apart

Aren’t you tired of breaking me
What’s wrong? I can’t say…
I’m lonely and I lost faith
Who cares anyway….
Aren’t you sick of running away
I’m sorry but I can’t stay
I’m lonely as the wind break

But hey…forget what the chances are…
I am getting out of your heart
I am getting out of your heart

The Moment I Lost It

Written By: Dexter's Diary

Unmerry melody
The sound of my voice, so to speak
When did I luster?
Well, it shouldn’t be…
I sat and stood still
Upon a landmine I have lived
How could I make it?
When in the end it drifted

And now…honestly
I’ve lost all I had in me

When I am relieved
On a plain
Into the moment I’ve chased
Wide awake
I’ll complete
Where there’s a sign there’s a breach

Into a parody
Below the thin line, ought to be
I’ll leave hope for glory
And maybe I’ll come clean
I’ll sign louder
Something much harder than a dream
How could I miss this?
So many times I’ve tripped

And now…honestly
I’ve lost all I had in me

When I am relieved
On a plain
Into the moment I’ve chased
Wide awake
I’ll complete
Where there’s a sign there’s a breach

Into the moment I’ve chased

The Bitter Taste of Failure

Written By: Dexter's Diary

I took a few to keep me safe
The bitter taste starts running through
But I can’t hold on you
I wrote a line, did one or two
The melody kept running by
My head keep spinning around

And I can’t be saved
I’m breathing in anyway
What’s wrong now…
And I can’t betray
Myself in so many ways

Well I spat a drag of common sense
This bloody trend has kept me high
But I can’t figure it out
But I tried and tried
Let all things left to the side of my eyes
Cause here I am now, dead as a lie

And I can’t be saved
I’m breathing in anyway
What’s wrong now…
And I can’t betray
Myself in so many ways

I am running out, yeah I’m running out in vain
From the back of my hand I’m sweeping the wind and running
