Biography

What you discover about yourself and the world around you, the way you interpret old and new perspectives of your life. What you learn and will learn through the wicked and wise.

Not the pressure that makes you resist conformity, not the raising of your middle finger with a salute of "FUCK YOU" to the rest of the world. Not a push to sway your individuality. Its a choice you make, when you choose to learn, from your First Time Fallen.

In the summer of 2001, an entity known as FIRST TIME FALLEN appeared. An entity designed only to exist as a reflection of human behavior and scream with melodic cries at the sites it sees. Taking its form in 4 residents from the Toronto suburban city of Burlington, Ontario, the entity engulfed them in passion for creating solid post alt/rock music the likes of Silverchair or Finger Eleven and would shape this young brethren. Bound them tighter then unified hate, to grow stronger as friends, as a band...as one. This manifestation, a catalyst that would be responsible for the release of a 3 song demo in 2002, would be the first steps of an infancy leading FIRST TIME FALLEN to its feet and the recording of their debut EP titled, "The Spectacular View from the Ground to the Sky". (2004)

With the release of "The Spectacular View from the Ground to the Sky", FIRST TIME FALLEN exposed countless numbers of onlookers in and around Toronto, at Universities and Colleges, to popular rock venues in Ontario (London, Guelph, St. Catherines, Hamilton), anywhere its cries would be heard. Latching itself into the minds and ears of students and fans through college radio station interviews and the occasional intimacy of acoustic communication FIRST TIME FALLENs rock pressing of 500 CDs was quickly out of stock.

Tired but knowing more needed to be exposed, FIRST TIME FALLEN would regroup, reevaluate and consume more, releasing "Your Vietnam"(2005) less than a year later. A live EP that contained the title track and 4 live songs recorded at The Reverb in downtown Toronto. FTF would again set out to promote its creation, this time taking it to a new level where the band received airplay and interviews on the FM dial most notably Edge 102 (Toronto) and Y108 (Hamilton). Over the next year FTF pressed on, touring behind both EPs and took part in the Indie Rock Shmooze Fest, Rogers Spring Music Festival and Burlington's Sound Of Music Festival.

Currently, FIRST TIME FALLEN is in rest, finishing its 1st full length album, "Kaleidoscope", recorded, and produced by the band and is scheduled to be released in the Summer 2007. Tour dates for Kaleidoscope will be announced soon.

Lyrics

Your Vietnam

Written By: Kirby

It’s the light of the moon bleeding through every crack in your face. Coyly concealed it you clever boy the true intentions of your claim. Sever the conscious label life as expendable. Feed the bullets your young as you say “Keep the faith for better days.” One day the dead will rise and to them you’ll justify why they lay in soaked sheets. They lie in your soaked sheets. Kill the lights, take the stage. Quickly now everyone maintain your place as inconceivable as it may seem. Assault the masses from every media. Gobbles himself could not plan a better campaign for “better days”. Well one day the dead will rise and to them you’ll justify why they lay in soaked sheets. They lie in your soaked sheets. They lay in soaked sheets they lie in your soaked sheets. One day the dead will rise. They lay in soaked sheets, they lie in your soaked sheets.

Covered In Flames

Covered in Flames

Broken leaves on the ground, the tear has fallen down and the coffee cups are empty. You say I'm stronger today then I've ever been but I'm feeling like a mannequin that's brittle from your heat. Awake, covered in flames I'll wait, until you come around again. But when you say you'll never sever from my side I can't wait. Shatter glass without sound and spread it all around, through the shards you walk naked. You say I'm stronger today, but I can't justify the claim when it's so easy to fake it. Awake, covered in flames I'll wait, until you come around again. But when you say you'll never sever from my side I won't wait. When there's so much to say the words just escape. I'm taking a stand to end this today. With our future unclear I'm riddled with fear of what I must do, to see this through. Will you come around? Awake, covered in flames I'll wait, until you come around again. But when you say you'll never sever from will you come around? Will you come around?

Through Wicked and Wise

Written By: Kirby

Through Wicked and Wise

Your grace is unknown, you’re so pretty, I’m grateful mystified and submitting to you. You said you wanted the truth to guide us through every step that we take together. Every promise I made was a storm that you weathered. Now I give this up to you, my one and only truth to my one and only truth. I can’t find my way without you. Through the wicked and wise there’s truth and there’s lies that I can’t define. If I’m without you my world would scatter, I’d stumble. I’d lose my grip trying to recover from you. So I blame the worry, I blame the fear; I blame every day it took for me to get here so I could give this up to you. My one and only truth, to my one and only truth. I can’t find my way without you. Through the wicked and the wise there’s truth and there’s lies that I can’t define if I’m without you. Maybe you go but I need you to know, you make it all right, bringing to darkness light, you lead me by your side. The emotion has been fitted, I’ve succumbed I’m smitten by you. You said you wanted the truth, so I give this up to you. I can’t find my way without you. Through the wicked and wise there’s truth and there’s lies that I can’t define if I’m without you. So maybe you go but I need you to know, you made it all right. You made it all right through wicked and wise. Without you...
