Biography

"A dark tinged art rock band with some novel ideas and an even more novel approach to the music business...
What makes this all the more amazing is the first rate quality of the music. Excellent guitar playing and vocals. Very head expanding, emotionally effective lyrics and delivery. They sound a little bit like a lot of things but not really like anyone else."

-Andrew Fenner, Morbid Outlook

Groove Manifest is the death of your social contract to bleed for the green. A disruption of the scene we all seem to fill with greed. We turn a blind eye, despite the why, to emblazon our statements with numbers, our placement, while someone out there gets to die. Molded in a tomb of plastics and fads the soul of the whole has been brought to it's knees, wrought with the disease of a man-made claim; a fallacy.

Lyrics

Requiem

Written By: Groove Manifest

(2x)
I am forgotten
What can I say
I am lost
In world of hate

This

Written By: Groove Manifest

I was waiting for this
While you wasted focus
Now I'll take you for less
Than you ought to be

As you take this moment
Full of faith atonement
I will take control
Over your soul and your seed

(3x) I blame you for this as I blame your fathers

Be forewarned . . . I hide inside the lies of men
Bear your arms . . . Not with but what lies within
Gone this far . . . Knowing who, what, where and when
Be alarmed . . . A reigning fear is to begin

I was waiting for this
While you wasted focus
Now I'll take you for less
Than you ought to be

As you take this moment
Full of faith atonement
I will take control
Over your soul and your seed

(3x) I blame you for this as I blame your fathers

You'll give in . . . Addicted to your plastic charms
Soon you'll end . . . The irony will crush your heart
I come in . . . The weight of hate will fall apart
See who wins . . . The dissident of whom thou art

I was waiting for this
While you wasted focus
Now I'll take you for less
Than you ought to be

As you take this moment
Full of faith atonement
I will take control
Over your soul and your seed

Breed

Written By: Groove Manifest

I hear the sound of a click in the sand
I see a gun but I don't see a man
Shots rain like a fire from the sky
On my knees, my face in my hands
Hold me down, help me understand
You're getting stronger while we pay for your plan?
I'll shoot you while you shoot the moon
The fear of doom resides in those eyes
Humanity is but a distant cry

(3x) War breeds technology breeds war breeds
technology breeds

(2x) You must take another look

Spend my money on ballistic machines
Use my science to destroy my beliefs
Plant your seed and your mask of war
Melencholy as you sip on your greed
You are unanswered and you spread like disease

(3x) War breeds technology breeds war breeds
technology breeds

(2x) You must take another look

I hear the rattle of a new born tool
I feel a lie and I'm thinking of you
Far from satisfied you wage a plague
Wait a day, these bullets long overdue
Far from pacified you're pushing the gloom
Confined now inside a desolate womb
I've had enough of this push and shove
Can you remember what it's like to die inside?
Can you imagine what it's like to survive?

(2x) War breeds technology breeds war breeds
technology breeds

War breeds technology breeds war
