guardian of the people

 Essex, Maryland, USA
BandMetalGothic

i just want to write, record and perform my own music. been trying to do it since 1994 but people are so unreliable. so i do it myself and make it as offensive, hateful and disgusting as i can. guardian of the people is my way of reaching out and giving the world one finger on each hand, the middle.

Biography

i was in my first band "dive" at 13 but it didnt last long. i kept playing and got into "2df" by 16, we couldnt stay together but had 11 original songs. in 2007 i got a home studio and began to record my own songs as "guardian of the people". a name that comes from the native american word qaletaqa and which i had written about in an epic novel by the same name (in need of editing and publication). the first cd was "event horizons" 2008 and symbolized the inability to escape. next was "forever night" which was produced and arranged much better. in 2010 i came out with "around every corner" named because of the idea that life is short and we never know when its our time to check out. my dad died on the day i recorded the vocals for a song called supernova, a fitting memorial because he was my star. i took a break but have been coming up with ideas for the next cd called "synapse" and have recorded the music for a new track and have the album art finished. havent been able to perform due to lack of band members but im looking forward to it when i get some more members

Lyrics

Around Every Corner

Written By: Guardian of the People

CAN YOU FEEL IT COMING FOR YOU…?!
AROUND EVERY CORNER…!
I can feel it coming for me, stalking day and night…
I know that my time draws close, my soul losing the fight…
There is a part of me that claims responsibility for my own actions…
As I funnel down I still won’t give any type of retractions…
Stripped away from life and colored by brown mud…
With my last strength I write my name in my own blood…
SWING, NOW, JUMP, DANCE, FOLLOW…
OBSESS, DECAY, MY BODY IS HOLLOW…
WITH EVERY MONENT LIFE GROWS SHORTER…
BECAUSE DEATH WAITS FOR ME, AROUND EVERY CORNER…
SCREAM, RUN, LUNGE, CAN’T ESCAPE…
THE CURSE AND BURNING MAKES ME IRATE…
WITH EVERY MOMENT LIFE GROWS SHORTER…
BECAUSE DEATH WAITS FOR ME, AROUND EVERY CORNER…
You don’t get to choose the time and date…
You don’t get to choose how…
(Bridge)
I’m in the ground, pray for me,ask for my sins to be forgiven…
Exit the body and welcome to the land of the nonliving…
Death is a part of life and it’s calling through the mist…
I want people to spit on me at my viewing for making them pissed…
Offensive in the flesh, voicing my opposing opinions…
I own souls, bought for cheap, in hell they become my minions…
MOVE, BEND, FUCK, PULL, SWALLOW…
FALLEN, ROTTING, I’LL LIVE AGAIN TOMORROW…
WITH EVERY MONENT LIFE GROWS SHORTER…
BECAUSE DEATH WAITS FOR ME, AROUND EVERY CORNER…
UGLY, STABBED, DAMNED, AND BURDONED…
HATE GROWS, BOLSSOMS AND IS FOR CERTAIN…
WITH EVERY MONENT LIFE GROWS SHORTER…
BECAUSE DEATH WAITS FOR ME, AROUND EVERY CORNER…
AROUND EVERY CORNER…!

AND YOU GOT YOUR FUCKING WISH!!!
EVEN JUST THIS YEAR ALONE HAS BEEN HARD ON CELEBRITIES
THE MAJORITY DIE EITHER FROM DRUGS OR A TERMINAL DISEASE
I READ THE NEWS TO SEE WHO THE NEWEST VICTIMS ARE
THE EXPLOSIONS LEAVE FANS WITH A PERMANENT SCAR
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A STAR DIES
They collapse into a hole where their heart used to be
The whole world mourns, it dominates the TV
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A STAR DIES
Death is shrouded in fame like a huge burst of light
Outshines the sun, it’s a thousand times as bright
EJECT YOUR OUTER LAYERS AND BEGIN TO SHED MASS
PRICES ARE JACKED UP ON WHATEVER WORK YOU DID LAST
HANDFULLS OF FUCKING STARS DYING IN JUST ONE YEAR
THE NIGHT SKY BECOMES DARKER BUT THE MEANING IS UNCLEAR
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A STAR DIES
A cooling burnt core remains and evaporates
The attraction becomes a circus and the family exasperates
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A STAR DIES
Mobbed by paparazzi making the scene more confusing
The method of death is what the press finds amusing
HOLLYWOOD HAS LOST SOME LUMINOSITY
EVERY NEW STAR BORN IS ANOTHER MONSTROSITY
WHEN I GO IT’LL BE WITH A
THIS VICIOUS CYCLE WILL NEVER STOP
Assign blame…
(Bridge)
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A STAR DIES
Everyone gasps and awes like its such a surprise
Letting go of their emotions, everyone cries
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A STAR DIES
Sympathy from strangers comes pouring in
Gasses and dust remain for a new star to begin

SEE HOW LONG IT TAKES TO DAMAGE YOUR SOUL…
TURN YOUR PLEASURES INTO FEARS…
SEVER YOURSELF FROM UNNEEDED EMOTIONS…
FUCK THE WORLD AND FORGET A NORMAL LIFE…
You need a distraction to achieve your full potential…
Great things come to those who stay awake…
Break your concentration and mask your new self…
What are you capable of…
YOU’RE NOT YOU, YOU’RE SOMEBODY ELSE…
WHEN YOU TURN PSYCHOTIC, NOTHING CAN HELP…
WHILE YOU SUFFER, YOUR REALITY MELTS…
NOW WAKE UP TO GET CONTROL OF YOURSELF…
CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE WITH A PILL…
FORCES YOU TO SLEEP AND CALMS YOUR PARANOIA…
BUT DOES IT SHOW YOU THE TRUTH OR MORE LIES…
DO YOU CONTROL IT OR DOES IT CONTROL YOU…
History will show that you didn’t give a god damn…
But it’s the sick people who accomplish greatness…
You want to be illness free, cover the symptoms…
Swallow it to escape…
YOU’RE NOT YOU, YOU’RE SOMEBODY ELSE…
WHEN YOU TURN PSYCHOTIC, NOTHING CAN HELP…
WHILE YOU SUFFER, YOUR REALITY MELTS…
NOW WAKE UP TO GET CONTROL OF YOURSELF…
(Bridge) [whispered} sleep… (x7)
(Guitar Solos)
YOU’RE NOT YOU, YOU’RE SOMEBODY ELSE…
WHEN YOU TURN PSYCHOTIC, NOTHING CAN HELP…
WHILE YOU SUFFER, YOUR REALITY MELTS…
NOW WAKE UP TO GET CONTROL OF YOURSELF…

Sinners and Charlatans

Written By: Guardian of the People

ON YOUR KNEES, AND PRAY…
ALTHOUGH GOD’S, NOT LISTENING…
EAT THE FLESH, AND CHEW…
DRINK THE BLOOD, FEEL BETTER?…
NO ONE’S THERE, TO STOP YOU…
BREAK THE RULES, YOU SINNER…
COMERCIALIZE, AND SPEND…
SPECIAL DATES, THAT DON’T MEAN SHIT…

SUFFOCATE, AS PROOF…
DEMONSTRATE, LOYALTY…
ONE DAY A WEEK, YOU’RE GOOD…
THE OTHER SIX, YOU’RE FAKING…
LOSE CONTROL, USE VIOLENCE…
LET YOUR HATE, CONSUME YOU…
SPILL YOUR LIES, LIKE OIL…
IT LEAVES A MESS, AND YOU’RE STAINED…

FUCK YOUR SOUL, AND SCAR IT…
THERE IS NO TRUTH, IN HERESY…
ABSENT FAITH, BARR IT…
NEVER TRUE, FORGIVNESS…
DESECRATE, THE MEANING…
ESTIMATE, YOUR PENANCE…
BURN OR FREEZE, IN HELL…
BUT DON’T WORRY, I’LL BE WITH YOU…

Sick with a poison, you’ll never understand…
The same poison that has claimed so many lives…
The holiest are sinners and charlatans…

YOU FOLLOW, A HOAX…
MILLIONS DIE, FOR RELIGION…
HOLY WAR, EXSTINCTION…
BELIEVERS, OF ALL FAITHS…
YOU’RE TERRORISTS, AND KILLERS…
PRAY ON THE WEAK, AND HELPLESS…
CHOKE THE WORLD, ENJOY IT…
WELCOME TO, THE NEW INQUASITION…

CALL HIS NAME, NO ANSWER…
ENLIGHTENMENT, TO THE TRUTH…
THOSE WITH FREEDOM, SHOULD EXPLAIN…
HOW MANY BURNED, AS WITCHES…
NO NEED TO GIVE, ANY REASON…
TORCH THE POPE, TO GET EVEN…
UNEEDED DEATH, FOREVER…
AS LONG AS YOU, KEEP UP THE CHARADE…

FUCK YOUR SOUL, SCAR IT…
THERE IS NO TRUTH, IN HERESY…
ABSENT FAITH, BARR IT…
NEVER TRUE, FORGIVNESS…
DESECRATE, THE MEANING…
ESTIMATE, YOUR PENANCE…
BURN OR FREEZE, IN HELL…
BUT DON’T WORRY, I’LL BE WITH YOU…

Sick with a poison, you’ll never understand…
The same poison that has claimed so many lives…
The holiest are sinners and charlatans…

SINNERS AND CHARLATANS…
SINNERS AND CHARLATANS…

Atheism is the safer way to go… trust me…
