Fueling the Fire

Fueling the Fire

BandRock

We're a sarcastic blend of in your face, no apologies, punk rock metal oriented, screaming, kicking, vengeful, over-the-top music with a twist of teenaged angst, a side of humor, and big glass of originality. We love to perform, and nothing thrills us more than a venue full of rabid fans!

Biography

Fueling the Fire officially began in March 2008; however, what began as a flcker has suddenly become a massive forest fire. We've since claimed the title of Artist of the Month on Punkrock.org, made it to the semi-finals on Ourstage.com, have had some amazingly good shows, and won the Sept. 17th round of Band Wars!! We've had an amazing year and an awesome time performing. We're just waiting to see what the next horizon holds. We're currently in the process of releasing our debut album. Rock on!!

Lyrics

Ball of Mud

Written By: Xander Candescent

So, there I was a-flyin' through the stars.
I could see you miles away.
You were there upon the mountain top.
Then the wind blew you away.

How I wanted to be strong like you...
How I wanted to believe...
But that was something I just could not do.
I couldn't find my mustard seed.

Who am I but just a ball of mud?!
Who am I but just a freak?!
All I wanted was to be your son,
But it wasn't meant to be.

Tell my why...
Why am I your bastard son?

So, here I am inside my wooden box.
There's no one here to take me home.
Fluff my pillow and lay down again.
Maybe I'm not who was wrong.

How I wanted to be strong like you...
How I wanted to believe...
But that was something I just could not do.
My feeble mind could not conceive.

Who am I but just a ball of mud?!
Who am I but just a freak?!
All I wanted was to be your son,
But it wasn't meant to be.

Tell my why...
Why am I your bastard son?

(SOLO)

Who am I but just a ball of mud?!
Who am I but just a freak?!
All I wanted was to be your son,
But it wasn't meant to be.

Tell my why...
Why am I your bastard son?

Atrocity

Written By: Xander Candescent

Try and try to solidify my pain.
By and by, you realize in vain:
Dry is dry, in spite of tears and shame.
And when you die, the world goes on the same.

Never will you ever be
Strong enough to destroy me.
And even if the world, it dies.
You'll never once see fear in my eyes.

'Cause I won't give in and won't give out.
You won't ever keep me down.
You're far too weak to hold me to the ground.

Yea, I've got a little message, it's true!
It's: F-U-C-K Y-O-U!!
Cause you are my atrocity!
Yea, you are my atrocity!

Why, oh, why? Why can't I be clean?
My, oh, my. Why can't I be anything?
High is high. I wish that I could be too.
But for tonight, I'll just speak the truth.

Never will you ever be
Strong enough to destroy me.
And even if the world, it dies.
You'll never once see fear in my eyes.

'Cause I won't give in and won't give out.
You won't ever keep me down.
You're far too weak to hold me to the ground.

Yea, I've got a little message, it's true!
It's: F-U-C-K Y-O-U!!
Cause you are my atrocity!
Yea, you are my atrocity!

Try and try to solidify my pain.
By and by, you realize in vain:
Dry is dry, in spite of tears and shame.
And when you die, the world goes on the same.

Never will you ever be
Strong enough to destroy me.
And even if the world, it dies.
You'll never once see fear in my eyes.

'Cause I won't give in and won't give out.
You won't ever keep me down.
You're far too weak to hold me to the ground.

Yea, I've got a little message, it's true!
It's: F-U-C-K Y-O-U!!
Cause you are my atrocity!
Yea, you are my-
You are my-y-y
Yea, you are my atrocity!!

ATROCITY!!!!!

Sadistic

Written By: Xander Candescent

Anger swelling inside of me…
How I wish it would end.
Behind my back, they’re shaking their fists.
And they call themselves men.

One painful night, creation…
Bred by an evil nation…
Victim of segregation…
Sadistic one…

Rained on for years, no shelter…
Rode in like Helter Skelter…
They’ll play the cards I’ve dealt them.
Sadistic one…

Now that I’ve had a spare moment to breathe,
I’ve grown in power, glowing with fire.
You can blame yourselves, you did this to me.
The time, the hour, doesn’t matter, I’ll find you.
You think you’re so much better than me?!
Well, step up and expire, I do not tire
Of killing those who don’t deserve to be.
I won’t end it quick. I’m feeling sadistic.

Barbarically…
Brutally…
Cruelly…
Sa-dis-tic!!!

Fiendishly…
Monstrously…
Viciously…
Sa-dis-tic!!!

Sadistic thoughts have taken me. (x4)

Hatred festers inside of me…
How I wish it would end.
They slit my throat every time I sleep,
Yet they call themselves friends.

One vengeful night, redemption…
Judgment without exemption…
Unmerciful infliction…
Sadistic one…

Betrayed without conviction…
The sign of your affliction…
My own evil depiction....
Sadistic one…

Now that I’ve had a damn moment to breathe,
I’ve grown in power, glowing with fire.
You can blame yourselves, you did this to me.
The time, the hour, doesn’t matter, I’ll find you.
You think you’re so much damn better than me?!
Well, step up and expire, I do not tire
Of killing those who don’t deserve to be.
I won’t end it quick. I’m feeling sadistic.

Furiously…
Mutinously…
Savagely…
Sa-dis-tic!!!

Chaotically…
Ferociously…
Heinously…
Sa-dis-tic!!!

Sadistic thoughts have taken me. (x4)

Malice growing inside of me…
I don’t want it to end.
Punisher of the infernal,
I am smiling again.

One fateful night, acceptance…
Avenging those who left us…
Destroying all deception…
Sadistic one…

Hunted by vengeful others…
Fueled by their mourning mothers…
Hiding from grieving brothers...
Sadistic one…

Now that I’ve had a damn moment to breathe,
I’ve grown in power, glowing with fire.
You can blame yourselves, you did this to me.
The time, the hour, doesn’t matter, I’ll find you.
You think you’re so much damn better than me?!
Well, step up and expire, I do not tire
Of killing those who don’t deserve to be.
I won’t end it quick. I’m feeling sadistic.

Casualty…
End of Me…
Reckoning …
Sa-dis-tic!!!

Freely I bleed…
Terminally…
My soul is free…
Sa-dis-tic!!!

Sadistic thoughts have taken me. (x7)
Sadistic thoughts have taken you.
