Tone tone tone. We could crap on about how we're the greatest thing since the custard filled donut, but who cares! Tone is in the ear of the listener, and we've worked hard to develop a sound that is catchy, has soul and still rocks your pants off.. All we ask is a minute of your time to try us on!

Biography

Facing Arrows (formerly IRiS) hails from Melbourne, Australia. Awarded the MusicOz Best Pop Artist of the Year 2007, being personally requested to support Kelly Clarkson on her 2008 Australian tour, and selected as a top 5 finalist in the Triple M radio competition to support Bon Jovi, singer/songwriter Brett Collins has appeared on numerous television shows and radio stations, toured Australia several times and is now in Los Angeles taking on the American music scene.

The style has been best described as 'radio rock' and if bands like the Foo Fighters, Matchbox 20 and The Goo Goo Dolls tickle your fancy, then chances are you'll find a lot to like about this band. The songs are honest, catchy, and performed with energy and passion.

Live is where the band really shines, so get down to show immediately if not sooner!

Lyrics

S-Town

Written By: Brett Collins / Cory Churko

I STRUGLE ENOUGH JUST FINDING MY CENTRE
I WILL NOT BEND
I REFUSE TO LET THIS DREAM FADE TO EMBERS
IM BURNING AGAIN

YOU SAY ITS TAKING WAY TOO LONG
YOURE ALWAYS TELLING ME IM WRONG

[CH]
AS YOULL GROW TO DISCOVER
YOU CANT BRING ME DOWN
THERES A DREAM TO RECOVER
FROM THIS SUICIDE TOWN

IF IM LOST YOU OFFER DIRECTION
DECEIPTFUL AND PURE
IF IM SICK YOU OFFER SUGGESTION
POISON OR CURE

BETTER FIND MY OWN WAY HOME
COZ IN THE END ITS ME WHO KNOWS

[CH]

OH ITS EASIER TO FAIL
THAN TO WORK FOR A MAYBE
OH THE NEXT TIME I EXHALE
IM READY TO BELIEVE

THERES A DREAM TO RECOVER FROM THIS SUICIDE TOWN X 2

[CH] X 2

SUICIDE TOWN X 3

Vision of Change

Written By: Brett Collins / Phil Buckle

There's something wrong with this picture
Ten thousand shades of grey
When all your truth becomes fiction
And words dont mean what they say
A smile wont always mean she's ok

[Ch]
Seems I'm always seraching for something
A reason not to tear out the page
Cradle of the earth show me everything
Tempt me with your vision of change

She says the world has lost all its meaning
I can't change the tide by running away
Addicted to the girl but she lost all feeling
And she'll never tire of getting her way
A smile wont always mean she's ok

[Ch]

All her dreams undiscovered daring me to uncover something here
Theres something here
Show me something that I believe it
Coz words dont always mean what they say
And a smile wont always mean she's ok

Always searching
I dont want to tear out this page
Cradle of the earth show me everything
Tempt me with your vision of change
Searching for something
So tempt me, wont you tempt me with your vision
Vision of change
Tempt me with your vision, your vision
Your vision of change

Written By: Brett Collins

In my head thoughts of me breaking keep on swimming around
But your faith in me – so unshaken, I laugh at the ground
The last few sips of my drink are on the counter, I’m lost in a dream
Once again I lose sight and you my saviour –

If it ever should seem like life’s got me down, I’ll remember to

[Ch]
Look at how far we’ve come in such a short time
Our worlds are one, and our spirits entwined could spend a whole lifetime with no need to roam
Now that you’re here, baby I’m home

I get to my feet and open the door –
I barely remember the reasons that brought me to tears that I came for;
I race up the driveway and into your arms – So if life ever gets ya, I hope I am there in your heart
So I can tell you to

[Ch]

Baby I’m home, baby I’m home

[Ch]
