Honest to Empire

BandMetalRock

We are a hard hitting, entertaining, and enjoyable sound. Have a listen and you'll see what we mean. It's safe to say we bring a new sound to the table with the music we create.

Biography

As a band, we create music that we enjoy listening to. Every time we record, we get extremely excited with our end product, especially having recorded and produced it entirely ourselves.

Listen to our music, that's all we ask, and hopefully it reaches out to you. There's no need for hyperbole.

In more recent news, we've had a hew notable accomplishments.

First we were lucky enough to be able to play at the Portland date for the Vans Warped tour.

Because of that we were played on two radio stations in the next two weeks, and we then opened for the accomplished Northwest band Floater.

Currently our goals are to record more songs and to play in more cities.

Lyrics

End of the Line

Written By: Justin Gibson/Roland Ashton

Breathe inside if you can see
Cold rain that’s falling on me

Please know,
You were my protection
Now it’s just a fading memory

This shattered dream
It burns an image into my mind
(Can’t run away)
We both know this shot will end the line

It’s too late for second chances
I don’t want you in my life
It should have never been this easy
So I guess this is goodbye
I can see through all your lies now
All I wanted was the truth
Throw it all away
This was all because of you

Close my eyes so I can see
Your self-destruction
And you destroying all our memories

And I hope that you can find
Someone else to waste your fucking time
Out of heart and into mind
The only thing to say now is goodbye

Long Forgotten

Written By: Roland Ashton

I should know
the weight of my insides
and try to see through blinded eyes.
I'll try and break the walls
but not the ones that I can't see.
They're in my head.

Inside I know, I know this can't be real.
It's overwhelming.
And I don't know just how to separate
my fears and what I feel inside.
I'll try and fight my way out.

Hold fast to my waist.
Watch the ground fade
as I fly.

I should know
the strength of my defense.
I feel it hold
and keep me alive.
I'll smash and break the wall.
Even the ones that I can't see.
They're in my head.

Inside I know, I know this can't be real.
It's overwhelming.
And I don't know just how to separate
my fears and what I feel inside.
I'll try to fly my way out.
