Biography

After years of playing in a number of different bands, brothers Clayton, Curtis and Cory decided that their mutual love for music could best be expressed by creating music together. It was this realization that led them to form Just Cause, a Sudbury-based punk rock group including Dan Lallande on drums in early 1996.

The band’s first and only album, “Open Road”, showed great potential and featured a number of instantly recognizable (and danceable) songs, including fan favourites “Twenty Dollar Toast”, “Untitled” and “Inspiration”. Just Cause would go on to play many gigs and sell a fair amount of records before parting ways due to members moving away for different reasons.

A year and a half went by before the three brothers decided to start playing music together again, this time choosing the name Existence is Song - representative of the role music plays in all of their lives. With a handful of new songs and continued interest from their label, Barcode Records, EIS recruited Jesse to play drums, and immediately started work on the new material.

Existence is Song is a new beginning. It is music without boundaries, music that will remind you why you loved it in the first place. EIS are not trying to fit into any pre-determined genres or sell to any particular crowd; they’re in it for the sole purpose of creating and performing the most sincere music possible. And as musicians mature, so too does their song writing. The collection of songs released on their latest EP for Barcode Records is proof of great things to come.

Existence is Song… A Work in Progress

Lyrics

The Lion and The Scorpion

Written By: Existence is Song

Come closer my dear...
I'll explain to you your role
Be the agent of my greed
I'll be the poison for your soul

A victim of my craving
Your naivete will fall
Worries, I have none
Young shoulders are broad

You'll be the ammunition
In the war that I will wage
For retribution
My battlecry today

Your sadly mistaken
If you think I'll be your pawn
A pratice in failure
That will never see dawn

It's time to give in
Let go of your rage
For the benefit of all
My plea to you today

Step forth your highness
And claim your throne
Courage is your kingdom
But my heart is your home

This Song Is Not For You

Written By: Existence is Song

I’ve told you many times before
No words can do you justice
But still you want me to try
And try some more

I’ve made more then one attempt
To find a melody so sweet
As to remind me of
The way I feel when it’s you I see

God damn that’s so cliché
But I guess I’ll sing it anyway
When the time comes for me to follow through

I’ve told you many times before
No rhyme from my feeble mind
Could ever describe that which I adore
Mon amore

I’ve made more then one attempt
To explain the futility
In trying to write a song to explain
What you mean to me

God damn that’s so cliché
But I guess I’ll sing it anyway
When the time comes for me to follow through

On the promise that was made
On the day to end all days
When I said I’d write a song for you
Well today is not the day
So I guess I better find a way
To write a song, a note, a tune for you
One about my love so true
Cause this song ain’t for you.

Take Me Back Home

Written By: Existence is Song

Today, I find myself awake
Unsure of all this change
That's tearing us apart
Confused now where's my

You got to take me back home
I can help you if you stay
This place is not my home
We might go back there one day
I feel so on my own

Last night, decided this wasn't right
Put me through all this pain
It's not easy come these days
Fuck it it's all the same

You got to take me back home
I can help you if you stay
This place is not my home
We might go back there one day
I feel so on my own

When you fall down
And you feel lost
And your world is upside down
YOu should stand up
Be strong and turn it back around
Stay true to those around you
And they'll understand
That's it not where
Cause together is where we belong

Yesterday, I fugired out all this change
Realized there's no need for pain
Those arround you, in the way
Live life for this day!

You got to take me back home
It doesn't matter where we stay
This place is not my home
Can I convince you another way
It's not the same when your away

When you fall down
And you feel lost
And your world is upside down
You should stand up
Be strong and turn it back around
Stay true to those around you
And they'll understand
That's it not where
Cause together is where we belong

Where we belong
