BandRock

The group delivers an anthemic mix of dark, moody vocal melodies with original guitar riffs, haunting keyboards and forceful rhythms. Inspired by everything from the Beatles & Peter Gabriel to The Arcade Fire & Coldplay, Elias's songs stress the mood and meaning rather than its individual parts.

Lyrics

Get Some

Written By: Elias

This morning I saw something, it was a lie
I thought we were serious, but you never try

I swore that I saw something, and it was alive
But we were delirious and you never try

Get Some, Get Some ahh

I'm looking forward to seeing you black and blue
You don't have the guts do you
I'm seeing you black and blue

Get Some, Get Some ahh

Summer scene, sitting in a circle
Saying I was on your side
Yea, I was on your side

Get Some, Get Some ahh

Puzzles

Written By: Elias

What I want is never there
When I look, it’s never there

I’m throwing punches
Under the water
I’m solving puzzles

What I want will never come

I’m throwing punches
Under the water
I’m solving puzzles

Where will all these pieces fit?
I told you I am sick of being
Torn up into little bits

I’m throwing punches
Under the water
I’m solving puzzles
It’s getting harder
I’m solving puzzles

All We Want

Written By: Elias

All this time, feeling weak
Baby there’s no guarantees

Look for proof, finding lies
All the answers in disguise

So, give me truth, give me lies
Give me answers in your eyes

Barricades have been built up
This steady pulse has been cut off
The push and pull of empty hearts
Like feeble fingers torn apart

Let’s shake these walls, shake these walls
They’re coming down

Shake these walls, shake these walls
They’re coming down, they’re coming down

This love is always better in my head

Give me truth, give me lies
Give me answers in your eyes

All this time, we’ve been weak
Maybe there’s no guarantees

All this proof, all these lies
All these answers in disguise

So, give me truth, give me lies
Give me answers in your eyes

Give me truth don’t give me lies
Give me truth don’t give me lies

Broken Lens

Written By: Elias

You’re a piece of work
You’ve got that paper bag smile
You’re a roughed up waste
So, stop backpedaling just to keep your place

I’ve had enough

I don’t want to, I don’t want to be
Buried in the ground where I will cease to breathe
It’s a steep slope, it’s a tight squeeze
And I don’t have the patience, I don’t have the patience

That’s you falling, that’s you falling down again
That’s you falling, that’s you falling down

You’re a broken lens,
You’re always in and out of focus
And spinning around
While I just wait for the image to get clear

I’ve had enough

I don’t want to, I don’t want to be
Buried in the ground where I will cease to breathe
It’s a steep slope, it’s a tight squeeze and

That’s you falling, that’s you falling down again
That’s you falling, that’s you falling down again

I don’t want to, I don’t want to be
Buried in the ground where I will cease to breathe
It’s a steep slope, it’s a tight squeeze
And I don’t have the patience, I don’t have the patience – enough

That’s you falling, that’s you falling down again
That’s you falling, that’s you falling down, falling down
