"Imagine a bowl full of razor blades
with sweet candy syrup poured over them."

At any given moment, half of the world's population dwells in darkness, while
the other half are bathed in light. Metaphorically speaking, the band Half
the World counts themselves among the latter. At the crux of their huge
sound, Half the World conjures a magnetic alchemy of vision and promise:
crushingly heavy and sublimely melodic.

It's also the framework to support eloquent, cerebral lyrics. "There's a real
strong sense of responsibility of writing music with this band, especially
from a lyrical standpoint," they confirm. "We shoot for substance. We're not
on some kind of crusade, but you won't hear 'Oh baby' or any love songs. We
don't need to add to that." Each musician in the band is also a songwriter.
"You may hear dark themes, but no promotion of darkness," they promise.
"What we're awake to, is a new vibe, a new revolution. "

Hailing from Holland, lead singer Mary Magill -- with her striking
Euro-goddess visual presence and commanding, world-class voice -- is the
band's on-stage focal point. The rhythm section is comprised of Mat Hansen
on bass and Pete Weaver on drums and backup vocals (these two also produce
and engineer for the band). Jim McCrostie and Brett Pedersen's incandescent,
razor-edged guitars generate the fire that electrifies this monumental wall
of sound.

Still, in the band's hometown of Boise, Idaho, there is no equivalent Sunset
Strip amidst the pines. "You struggle to play at Grandma's barbecue," they
confirm. But they've opened for Third Eye Blind and expanded their
affirmative sound into arena-size proportions. The band has also parlayed
their relative isolation into a winning card; it's no secret that the Pacific
Northwest is a center of emerging communication technologies. In that spirit,
Half the World has achieved digital visibility via mp3.com. They've been
tapped by the staff as alternative rock picks and turned those kudos into an
expanding global audience. Contact is key: anyone who e-mails the band
receives a complete CD in return.

While the band takes its next giant steps -- expanding their touring base,
achieving national airplay and divining a suitable label partner -- they
continue to generate a lasting momentum fueled by positivity, imagination and
a shared destiny. Half the World are determined to spread their sound over
all the world. Email: info@halftheWorld.cc

Lyrics

Fragile

Written By: Half The World

In this perfect emptiness
I know who I am
Still I fake a smile
Seems I'm not the only one

It's in the way you always seem
to look right through me
It's in the way you always seem
to move right through me
This is not what's real
Nothing like I feel
This is not what's inside

Dont think everything is perfect now
Dont think everything is beautiful
Dont think I'm the only one who's fragile
I am not the only one

I know the fear of limitation
I've built the walls I hide behind
I am the one who created this cancer
From the monsters in my mind

It's in the way you always seem
to look right through me
It's in the way you always seem
to move right through me
This is not what's real
Nothing like I feel
This is not what's inside

Dont think everything is perfect now
Dont think everything is beautiful
Dont think I'm the only one who's fragile
I am not the only one

I am not the only one
I am not the only one
Everything is everything is
Everything is perfect now

Dont think everything is perfect now
Dont think everything is beautiful
Dont think I'm the only one who's fragile
I am not the only one
