Biography

"March of the Whales", the inaugural full-length CD from Finger of Knowledge, is set to be unleashed late August 2008. We are working hard in the studio as you read this, so that every song has that polished pro finish, but still retains the raw live emotion we strive for at every show. Until then, we hope you enjoy our demos.

With influences ranging from Soundgarden to Coldplay, FoK relates many of their concerns toward major world problems with their unique style of musical story-telling. The title track and album name refer to a magical scenario in which Earth's whale population abandon's this pollution-laden planet. "Wars of our World" is an anthem for bringing all military soldiers home safely and quickly, and finding alternative solutions to our problems RATHER than waging wars. Of course FoK is not always preaching about saving the world. Listen to DeFine and discover your own meaning to the words.

In the span of 24 hours in 2006, 16000+ believers went to mp3.com and downloaded "The Day", a song from FoK's original 5-Song EP. Momentum was lost when 2 members parted ways soon after, but the band rebounded and these 3 boys from Ottawa (Micah, Pacitto and Dean) have high hopes for their new album.

What people Say:

"Finger of Knowledge has a nice mix of emotion in their vocals with a rock sound. The band is tight with catchy hooks, and musically are all very talented. The most important aspect to keep in mind when writing a song is 1) Will listeners be able to relate to the song, and 2) Does it have memorable hooks that people can hum too. These hooks can be both vocally, or musically. Finger Of Knowledge uses both these techniques with unique vocals backed by a solid beat and rockin guitar."

FoK believes it is possible to make a difference through the voice of music, and as long as there are fans out there willing to listen, they will continue sharing their unique brand of "knowledge".

Lyrics

1Fair Rd

Written By: Micah

1 more fair road
will bow before horizon
if gravity's control
then how did we learn to fly

when we trade lives, for $$ bills
we trade lives

but I'll fall in love again
I'll fall in love again for you
Feel trade winds blow,
down one fair road

1 more fair road
how am I supposed to find them
when all I own
is yours before its...
mine o mine, I work so hard for this,
but I can never, never, never savour it
I can't savour it, it's your favourite
why must I fight to survive... I'm enslaved

But I'll fall in love again
I'll fall in love again for you
Feel all you know
Feed addiction slow
Feel trade winds blow
down one fair road

DeFine

Written By: Micah

Tears of love and tears of pain
and to ransom off, the final face
that holds any hope
I've simply had enough

Aquiesce then fade back to
the sorry state when I found you
afraid to hold your head and say enough

but I'm almost there, almost there
it's getting harder every day, so much harder every day
almost there, almost there
it's getting harder every day, so much harder every day

On and on and on and on and on again
(say I'm already fine, you know I'm fine, so nearly fine, you know that fine is all we really know now)
On and on and on and on and on again
the motives in your eyes, we're fearless in disguise
(you know I'm fine, we're really fine, you know that fine is all we really ever had)

Shaded silhouettes, of me and you
if we only get one chance to lose
it's the reason why we can never get enough

but I'm almost there, almost there
it's getting harder every day, so much harder every day
almost there, almost there
it's getting harder every day, so much harder every day

On and on and on and on and on again
(say I'm already fine, you know I'm fine, so nearly fine, you know that fine is all we really know now)
On and on and on and on and on again
the motives in your eyes, we're fearless in disguise
(you know I'm fine, we're really fine, you know that fine is all we really ever had)
On and on and on and on and on again, I won't run away

Wars of our World

Written By: FoK

Face another way
cause I still see you even when I close my eyes
Where I cannot say
but it haunts me, it wants to keep our love apart

Another person falls to the side
another forgotten mind
Perpetuate our future with a closed and swollen eye

But we're so far... bring everybody, everybody
bring everybody home, home

They try to build another war
but attrition knows no boundries are safe
there's no where I can go
When the wrong people hold the floor
well they haunt me, they want to keep our love apart

Too drunk to see them disappear
it's not there own so no fear
and everyday still more of us fall, to the side

But we're so far so far away
Bring everybody, everybody, everybody home, home

A crimson sun fills the horizon
and for one brilliant moment, the world machine grinds to a crawl
all around us chaos but we feel nothing at all
We are the oppressed majority, guilty, for being born this way
The sick and hungry, guilty, for ending up this way
We are the soldiers who fight when we know somethings wrong
and we must ask ourselves now...
Why is this fight allowed to go on?

Silhouette

Written By: Micah

Why hesitate
I meant what I said why must I still, be afraid
But you leave me so lonely, i'm a slave forever - when is the right time for goodbye

If this is all we had, i still want more
If this is all there will be, i deserve more

When did you leave me this way
when will the shiver, settle in
and when did you first feel
i'm a face on the wall, just a face on the wall, a face on the wall
my heart still shivers on a thread, to hang till the end, again

There goes my faith
if only i believed i could feel ove again
but I've held far too long it was, never there
so when is the right time for goodbye

If this is all we had, I still want more
If this is all there will be, I deserve more...
I'd almost forgotten what it's like
to feel what a person feels inside
I know I deserve, more

When did you leave me this way
when will the shiver, settle in
and when did you first feel
I'm a face on the wall, just a face on the wall, a face on the wall
My heart still shivers on a thread, to hang till the end, again
