Biography

FLESHSUIT layed it's roots over 20 years ago when Jeff and Mark started playing together, then took it's next step toward the future when they picked up Dan in the 90's. Ryan returned from the desert to join in 2003, and in early 2004, Vince appeared from nowhere to complete the mix. Our heroes, armed only with the emotional rollercoasters of their life experience, a love of music, and a desire to create, put the finishing touches on their debut cd, titled simply "The Beginning", in early 2004.
The cd is a brain-numbing mix of terrifying guitar grooves, hysteria-inducing rhythms, earth-wrenching bass tones, and fluid guitar mastery, combined with vocals that range from throat-shredding screams to orchestrated, haunting melodies, and deeply personal lyrics that explore a personal journey through this life. FLESHSUIT is a band that has committed itself to playing music for all the right reasons, and continue a journey that has no end in site to find out where they, and everyone who comes along for the ride will end up.

Lyrics

My Shell

Written By: Ryan Noblitt

Scrape your tongue, cause lies stick
Hope raises infintie cuts on this empty shell, this husk formerly me
til I believed

Now I can't hear myself screaming
Now I can't tell if I'm dreaming

Enveloped in my shell
This mental locust feeding on me
Grinding away at me, until I disappear or scream

Fuck you for making me love you
Fuck you for making me believe that you care
Fuck you for making me hate myself again

Why do I have to feel

Dying suddenly doesn't seem as bad to me as trying to breathe
Tieing this invisible noose of hope around my neck
And falling...and falling
back into me

Malignant truth, benign lies

Now I can't tell if I'm dreaming
Now I don't care if I'm breathing

Enveloped in my shell
This mental locust feeding on me
Grinding away at me, until I disappear or scream

Dying suddenly doesn't seem as bad to me as trying to breathe
Tieing this invisible noose of hope around my neck
And falling...

Wish I could erase everything I ever felt for you cause if I never loved you I'd be happy just to

Inhale...exhale
Inhale...exhale

The Blanks

Written By: Ryan Noblitt

I wonder if you really know what it feels like to feel life as if it
Were acid being thrown in your eyes

Hoping only for a reason to keep on breathing
And someone to pull your head from the vise.

I'm hoping to find that I've been dreaming someone elses life
Not mine, I'm suffocating on the absence.

Stripped of all but the basics, the parts of me I hate have
Suddenly combined to attack me, stone me
Waiting below me are the razors of hope again, waiting to taste my skin.

I peel back the layers of my shadow just to bleed my prizm dry.

If you could see between the black and white
You'll dream in color.
Peel back the faces of your masquerade and
Fill in the blanks.

I see all this ignorance is coming to an ending
The message that I'm sending is finally starting to sink in
And deepen the strength of belief in
The you that you hide inside yourself until it finally dies.

Belief in yourself is paramount
There's no more waiting to die.

If you could see between the black and white
You'll dream in color.
Peel back the faces of your masquerade and
Fill in the blanks.

Everything's blank

Epicenter

Written By: Ryan Noblitt

Rumble,young man, Rumble.
Shake it up.

It's two a.m. and i'm sitting in this Florida hotel room
trying to put together a couple of words I can tell you
to fill up the hole that the world's done fell through,
Ain't no way around it, guess I gotta spell it out..

We're all fucked, and that's the bottom line son
a kid can't even go to school without bringin' a gun
and then it's run run run away as fast as you can before someone takes your heart and steals it for themselves.

We're all hiding inside and getting fucked by the people we confide in.
I keep trying, they keep lying, and in my back is where the knife keeps sliding.

I'm still fighting, cause I'm too stubborn to run
thought the hard part was over, but the worst is yet to come.
I'm scared sometimes that I won't see the sun rise on a day that's free from the hatred of the imbeciles.

Life shows me all these reasons I should give up and die
but, to be honest, I don't know how long I can hold on.

Now it's about 2:10, and the rage is growing, words and ink are flowing
knowing even in the desert, winters frozen my soul man.
I can't seem to let things be or see that yesterday's history tomorrow is a mystery.

All that's beyond this swears to me that it's going to be there
But to be honest I don't know how much I even care.

The last string holding it all together is breaking
I am standing in the epicenter waiting for it all to fall apart
