Biography

“I love being on the road. I sometimes sleep in the van when we are home just to remind myself we will tour again soon… ” – Jimi Battle. This sentiment pretty much wraps up Flatlined’s approach to everything with a nice bow. The band has been in existence for 6 years now, touring Canada and the USA almost non-stop. Flatlined has 2 studio albums, 4 members, an awesome van, and the desire to tour for the rest of their lives.
Summer 2009 has Flatlined poised to release a number of new EP’s. It’s an odd thing to try, but the band is frustrated with releasing full CD’s to a public that wants great music quickly. Why not give them what they want? Over the 6 months starting June 1st, 2009 Flatlined will be releasing a 3-song EP every 8 weeks. The songs will be made available on ITunes and in stores across Canada.
The first EP in this series titled “Ya Era Hora” will be the first studio recordings since Flatlined released “Deaf Leading the Blind” (2007) which sold in stores across Canada and the USA. The band embarked on 5 coast-to-coast Canada tours to promote “Deaf Leading the Blind” from 2007 to 2009 including most of the Northern USA. The album spawned the music video for the single “The Deaf Leading the Blind”, the song that enjoyed rotation on many of Canada’s top rock radio stations, Much Loud and a Spotlight appearance on Yahoo Launch.
Flatlined will be appearing at numerous Canadian and American festivals throughout the summer of 2009. The band will be writing and recording the remaining tracks for the EP releases in the downtime. They shall be a restless bunch come September when the band expects to retake to the road to promote the new releases and expand internationally.

Lyrics

Believe

Written By: Flatlined, Dmitrovic

Believe

Examine you now through this open hole
Your flesh and bones are sewn to a tortured soul,
But I can’t see you the way you want to be, with this distorted point of view…
So I don’t believe

Make me believe, that when we open you up, you’re the one I’ll see,
Now help me believe that when we open u up you’re the one I’ll see…

My mind and body awaits these endless chores…
My heart aches from you and these open sores….
But I will never see things the way they are with this fucked up point of view…

This hide and seek game throughout your mind grows old…
But I still sit here and do just what im told…
Things aren’t the way I imagined that theyd be, with my disgusting point of view…
Now I don’t beleive…

Make me believe, that when we open you up, you’re the one I’ll see,
Now help me believe that when we open u up you’re the one I’ll see…

The Thrill Of The Kill

Written By: Flatlined, Dmitrovic

The Thrill of the Kill

Out of the shadows, I crawl,
I’m your killer in disguise
Well-dressed, hello and a smile
I see that look that’s in your eyes
And I know, I know, I know you feel the same,
And you know I’ve killed before but…
You wont leave me alone….

But let me go,
Cuz you can’t deny me,
The thrill of the kill and I’ll do it again…

You’ve given up, I’m inside you
My dagger cuts and rips your heart,
Now you wonder whose beside you,
As fantasies just fall apart
But I don’t, I don’t, I do not feel the same,
And you know, I’m gone again but…
You wont leave me alone…

Just let me go,
Cuz you can’t deny me,
The thrill of the kill and I’ll do it again…

I put your head on my mantle and everything just feels the same…
You spill your insides at my feet and I don’t feel a thing…
I put your head on my mantle and everything just feels the same…
You spill your insides at my feet and I don’t feel a thing…
I put your head on my mantle and everything just feels the same…
You spill your insides at my feet and I don’t feel a thing…

You wont leave me alone…

Just let me go,
Cuz you can’t deny me,
The thrill of the kill and I’ll do it again…

Deaf Leading The Blind

Written By: Flatlined

we walk like soldiers now, hands at our side,
and my tongues glued in my mouth, as we all fall in line… I've tried to make a stand, to no avail, my words are made of sand, and thought unreal… bound
here by these chains, save yourself because, I can't lead the change fight
your own wars I will not call out to you with deaf ears you'll hear me,
blindly we all follow you, as you lead us to die as if we're all too shy,
and part of the crowd, they let our voices die, without a sound. you just as
me to make sure that everything is ok… but I am no savior here, it doesn't
matter what I say…
