Biography

In 2005 Ethereal originated with the vision of creating music that was not only fun to listen to but also fun to dissect & interpret into meanings that inspire thought. With their Debut E.P. “Shields & Arms Were Nowhere Near” there is a focus in their sights to transcend the indistinguishable rock music today. These self-taught musicians draw from an array of influences from each end of the spectrum blending them into a sound worthy of their name. Meticulous in their craft, they pour their heart and souls into every song giving their fans nothing but their best efforts. In every aspect of the word, Ethereal is truly an innovative band always striving to re-invent their selves in order to keep their songs fresh and true to their name.

Gemini

Gemini
(A. Garcia)

Easy come, Easy go.
My razors never kiss and tell,
But these lines long to bleed something so much better than my dreams.
I wanna be something better showing who I really want to be.
My better half is my better mask, showing who I really want to be.

[Chorus] For all I know you’ve covered up your ugliness.
Be careful what you live for, it could be your death.
For all I know you’ve covered up your ugliness.
Be careful what you wish for….

It’s my life

I can’t be the one with the winning combination
If I am the lock but not the key.
If I am the sun but you can’t see.
The flames in my reflection,
Black as the ink that makes a scar,
Helps to remind us who we are
So we may never forget, never regret anything that you do.

[Chorus]
…You never know what you might get
It’s my life

Come one, come all!!
This is what you’ve waited for, is it not?
And now it’s that time…
For me to cut myself open for you and there’s no looking back!
And I’m never looking back.
Then she said, “Call when you get home”
And she said, “Call if you ever…never feel like giving up!”

The Truth

Written By: Ethereal

The Truth
(A. Garcia)

Hush now don’t say another word about these demons in my eyes,
It could be worse it could be hate.
Singled out the thought, the possibility
That the moment I leave you’re gone indefinitely.
But it’s just a chance I have to take.

[Chorus] It’s over now and truth be told your life’s in your hands! (Save it, so save it!)
Save what you can, save what you won’t let me, save what I can’t.

If you’re drowning in your sorrows let me hear you scream!
Take this pain from my chest!
Like a knife through my heart from my back
And your words and lies make it twist!
If I could do it all again I’d do it different/over.

[Chorus]

I’m breathing slower now; into the ground I’ll scream your name
If I could just be honest with myself…
I’m getting sober now; into the ground I’ll scream your name
If I could just be honest with myself…I’ll be ok!

[Chorus]

I can’t believe it had to end this way.
Taking back the words that I said to you,
I guess I never meant them?
Every day’s a chance for me to break away.
(Taking back the words that I said)
If I could just be honest with myself, we wouldn’t have to wait ‘til tomorrow.
(Taking back the words that I said)
(Look what you’ve done, look what you’ve done to me)
Love breaks us all, it’s never the season.
I guess you’re right, I can’t pretend.
I lied.

Scales of Gentlemen

Written By: Ethereal

Scales of Gentlemen
(A. Garcia)

Last night, bad dreams again, can’t wipe these scars out of my eyes
This time a smile would make a horrible disguise
I guess we’re not as strong as we’d hoped to be in times like these
Just like lightning courage fell from us with eagerness to leave
‘Cause the scales of gentleman aren’t as gentle when weighing life and death
Especially when there’s more at stake than just your own life
But the lives of all your men

[Chorus] We’ve been called to war where not even our guardian angels dare to sing
(Won’t you watch over me?)
Watching us from the safety of heaven as their children bleed
We’ve been called to war where not even our guardian angels dare to sing
(Won’t you watch over me?)
Watching us from the safety of heaven, heaven have mercy on me

Our lives are open wide, can’t wipe the salt out of our wounds.
Explosion next to me, a fire that consumes our eyes!
Red tears! I fear that I’m not the only one who bleeds.
But the silence overwhelms me such that I can’t hear the screams!
‘Cause the scales of gentlemen aren’t as gentle when weighing life to death
Especially when there’s more at stake than just your own life
But the lives of all your men

[Chorus]

This is a call to arms no hesitation, you’ve got your orders, shoot to kill!

Oh how wrong we were to believe that love could save
And oh how lost we are now!
The blood on our hands and shirts, advertising all our sins
And oh how lost we are now!
