Biography

Do You See the Dark is a three-piece beast. Seamlessly meshing eccentric metal riffs with catchy vocal melodies and hooks, the group is best defined as a progressive power-rock trio with the massive sound of artists like Tool and Pantera, the raw emotion of Nirvana and the melodic sensibilities of The Cars and Billy Joel.

DYStD has just released their latest EP, Victory Is In the Struggle. The EP is a journey through life's ups and downs; a trip through the edgy darkness frequently confronted on the path to betterment. The songs cover vast ground ranging from vigilant and political to introspective and deeply personal. The music tackles heavy subject matter while remaining uplifting; provoking listeners through deep themes interwoven with complex rhythms and savage riffs. The EP is already garnering accolades having been featured in the April/May/June issue of HM Mag's Pick of the Litter.

After several northeastern tours, DYStD has gained a strong following in the region. With Victory Is In the Struggle now available, the band has been busy serving heaping helpings of heaven-sent heaviness to music fans in the northeast.

Lyrics

Shed Your Thorns

Written By: Do You See the Dark

forget what you give and just forgive
live life and love, live and let live
shed your thorns just shed your thorns and forgive
forget all you've lived and just forgive

what you thought
was nothing you should hide
you said everything's fine
don't you lie

get what you give; what you put in
accept this gift you've been given
shed your thorns just shed your thorns and let's begin
forget all you've lived and start living

what you thought
was nothing you should hide
you said everything's fine but you lied

if it's what you want, take it
embrace it
if you see what you want, go take it
make it
embrace it

When It All Falls Apart

Written By: Do You See the Dark

of all today's hypocrisy
they're fighting drugs or so they say

freedom dies within a drug war
people die within a drug war

when it all falls apart you'll see

all these lies
they mesmerize
and then they hypnotize; crucify

let me tell you what you oughta know
follow where the money goes
then you'll see who runs the show

sell a pill, pass a bill, fill your prisons up
how much blood will have to spill until this is enough

of all today's hypocrisy
they're fighting drugs or so they say

when it all falls apart you'll see

Secret

Written By: Do You See the Dark

i am the keeper of my only sacred friend
i hold the answers never told again
all these truths hidden in our past
all these questions no one thought to ask

when you ask me for the answers that you seek
my only reply is the secret's safe with me

Sunshine

Written By: Do You See the Dark

my life
is scattered, torn and ripped apart
with lies
and i cannot look myself in the eye

oh god i've tried
i've worn the hats to separate
but all it did was
split up my mind

sunshine
made me feel so alive
but tonight i feel so cold inside

i'll try
to simplify this complex life
if all i get from you
was one smile

your sunshine
made me feel so alive
what i wouldn't give for one smile

then warmth went away from em
away from me
far away from me

now i've made myself an enemy
and a fool of me
a fool of me

your sunshine
made me feel so alive
what i wouldn't give for one smile

your sunshine
warmed my heart for a while
tonight i feel so cold inside

Dranken

Written By: Do You See the Dark

break
from life from work from it all
drink
until i stumble and fall
eye to eye
see to the depths of my soul
why do i
find comfort in loss of control

all they did was offer it to me
promise not to offer it to me

it's crazy

deep
inside and so uncontrolled
seep
deeper into my own hole
side by side
death and life
unified
by tonight
what will be left of my soul

all they did was offer it to me
promise not to offer it to me

it's crazy

dranken it all away
dranken over again

all they did was offer it to me
lessons learned in life are never free
funny how life plays these tricks on me
promise not to offer it to me

it's crazy
