BandAlternativeRock

We are a spacey melodic alt/rock band. We create songs of structure with spacey tinges, memorable melodies and harmonies, as well as driving rockers. What sets us apart from other bands is that we are classic yet new. Reminiscent of something that would have been and has never been.

ASINIMAHA

In the diamond days when I got erased
In the diamond days
I tried to hope and pray
I tried to hope and pray
I tried to find a way

But my plan became my plan b
And my gun became my enemy

Well hey their all around X2
Better run fast kid
Better run fast kid
Feet on the ground

In a constant hayes
In a constant haze
With the runaway
I tried to hope and pray
I tried to hope and pray
I tried to find a way

But my plan became my plan b
And my gun became my enemy

Well hey their all around X2
Better run fast kid
Better run fast kid
Feet on the ground

I think I might!!
I think I’ve had enough
I think I might
I think I’ve had enough
I can’t stand it when my plans get handed to me
I can’t stand you handin me the plans

Well hey their all around X2
Better run fast kid
Better run fast kid
Feet on the ground

I think I might!
I think I might!
I think I’ve had quite enough!!!!

anyone

Written By: aaron smart/hayes

Anyone can see
Anyone can see, I’m dying
Anyone but me
Anyone but me, I’m blinded
The light of the sun my eyes in

And days of sonic dreams
Days of sonic dreams
Can’t find em
And try so hard to see
That theres another way
Inside em

Were out of our minds no time now
Were out of our heads sunlight now

Spendin your time and wastin all mine
And days become nothing but burned out fires yeah
Spendin your time just chasin your mind around
Spendin your time and wastin all mine
All the things you can and you can not find in your head
Your times ran out
Your times ran out..

Been down in holes so deep
Been down in holes so deep
Can’t climb out
But try so hard to see that theres another side
You’ll find out

Were out of our minds no time now
Were out of our heads sunlight now

Spendin your time and wastin all mine
And days become nothing but burned out fires yeah
Spendin your time just chasin your mind around
Spendin your time and wastin all mine
All the things you can and you can not find in your head
Your times ran out
Your times ran out.
Your times ran out.

You’ve been knocked down before
You’ve been knocked down before
You’ve been knocked to the floor……..

doesnt matter

Written By: aaron smart/hayes

It doesn’t matter anyway
Cause the days never come and your heads floatin round
Anyway
You think you wanna get away
But you can’t cause your trapped in a world that you had to create
You can never get away
Pack your bags and leave today

AGAIN WITH MORE FEELING

2nd Verse
It doesn’t matter anyway
Take a pill for the pain
Frequencies that will drive you insane
You think you got a better way?
Tell a friend tell em all send and call
Push it out everyday
But you can never get away
Pack your bags and leave today

Chorus

Bridge
You can’t get away
You can’t get away

It doesn’t matter anyway
It doesn’t matter anyway
Cause you can never get away
Pack your bags and leave today
