LUCID

BandRockAlternative

We're a hard rock/alt band (NOT METAL) from CO Spgs. We love hard music, but screaming makes our ears bleed. We describe ourselves as sounding like Nickelback and Nirvana stuffed into a little Candlebox, OR Chad Kroeger being choked by Kurt Cobain. Local music doesn't have to suck or hurt your ears.

Biography

LUCID is one of the newer, hot bands out of Colorado Springs. Coming onto the scene in April of '07, in less than a year they have established themselves as one of the premier hard rock/alternative bands in the Springs. With 3 instruments and a vocalist, they bring a fresh, yet familiar sound back to the music scene, reminiscent of Nirvana, with classic metal and modern progressive influences. With it's incredibly powerful, gravelly and melodic vocals, you constantly want to say, "I know who that is," when you hear it, but you can't, and you don't. Live, they bring an energy to the stage that you only see left in today's metal groups. But make no mistake; this IS a ROCK band.

Originally formed in early '07, by drummer (then guitarist), Vince Carbone, the 'final four' came together in February of '08, with David Lacasse on guitar, Matt Morris on bass (all CO natives) and the final addition of JoNBoy Herrera as lyricist and vocalist (NYC) for the band. With an age range of ten years between some members, they are an eclectic group of first hand experience, and dedicated appreciation of the alternative rock that helped shape the last 2 rock generations.

Lois

Vanity, it’s on your knees, squeezed down between what you really mean
Rock in the closet, with our names upon it, looks down on us, says nothing at all
Silver sisters on the wall, encased in glass, the flowers fall
Laying beside you, cold or hot, there’s an empty spot, where there’s nothing at all

[Chorus]
[You were my lover, not my friend, you were the best thing in the end
Such vindiction, on your mission, you were the worst thing in the end
So fucking priceless, acting worthless, you’re just crazy in the end
Thought you’d been a witness, but you’re just a misfit, who’s not with me, in the end]

That golden bottle, that you love to coddle, inside your car, outside the club
In your worst condition, your drunkin bitchin, here comes the fight, carry you home
Make my head weak, here comes the cunt speak, you get pissed and crack the bone
Kicking and screaming, but you’re not bleeding, here you are just mad as hell

[Chorus] X3

Mourning

Written By: LUCID

Mourning

Started to think maybe it had been awhile
But every morning it’s just so hard to smile
Dreams that leave your touch and warmth so fresh
A cruel trick played, waking to this emptiness

Another painful sleep the sandman’s paid
As the latest dreams of you begin to fade

So many thoughts of you that leave me empty inside,
So I settle for dreams of lies that make me feel alive
Beaten by the nights I must live through
My days ahead are ghostly filled with you

[Chorus]
[Another painful sleep the sandman’s paid
As the latest dreams of you begin to fade
Ravaged by the things that you do best
There’s a broken heart still beating in my chest]

[Could you want it?
Could you own it?
Could you need it?
Could you feel it?] x4

Lashing out with all the hateful things I say
Weak because I never wanted it this way
Could you believe that I still love you
Would you ever let me make this up to you
[Chorus]
[Chorus (x2)]

Lost Mine

Written By: LUCID

Lost Mine

I can’t believe you were the best thing ever happen to me
I can’t believe you were the best to walk away
I can’t explain this pain and rage that I’ve been going through
I will not hide away the fact that it’s because of you

I’m dreaming of the times we had and all the memories lost
The implosions of my crushing chest that slowly breaks apart
My screaming, weeping, bleeding, why don’t you ever fucking care
This is the pain and sorrow we said the other’d never bare

Why aren’t you mine
My desire
My Girlfriend
Lost in the end

I can’t forget your lips, your hands, or cheeking with your bad skin
Your cold blue eyes and killer smile and how you feel within
Your fresh blonde hair stuck to my face as you are pressed against me
Your eyes rolled up inside your head as you come with me again.

Why won’t you speak to me? Why won’t you hold my hand?
If you ever cared about our love you’d still be here and not beneath some other man
The thought alone, it makes my chest implode, I want to hang myself
But I’ll just cry and bleed while you’re out there fucking someone else

Why aren’t you mine
My desire
My Girlfriend
Lost in the end

You’re a waste of life
Or a waste of mine
You’ll be down in the end

How long were we together? How long have we been apart?
Was any of it real? Or just a 2 year farce?
You cannot comprehend how my love will never change
And without giving any warning, you just simply walk away

Why aren’t you mine
My desire
My Girlfriend

I can’t believe you were the best thing ever happen to me
I can’t believe you were the best to walk away
I can’t explain this pain and rage that I’ve been going through
I will not hide away the fact that it’s because of you

Why won’t you speak to me? Why won’t you hold my hand?
If you ever cared about our love you’d still be here and not beneath some other man
The thought alone, it makes my chest implode, I want to hang myself
But I’ll just cry and bleed while you’re out there fucking someone else

Why aren’t you mine
My desire
My Girlfriend
I lost her in the end

You’re a waste of life
I’m a waste of life
And not just mine
Cause I’ll be up in the end

Outspoken

Written By: LUCID

Outspoken

Girl you’re so outspoken
Put your hands on me
How can you be so sad
And stay so good to me
You’re a golden token
I hope soon I will see
My heart’s no longer broken
When you look at me

Wake my eyes
Dream of lies
Wake my eyes
And dream alive

Fear the pain of the morning come
Fear the pain

Girl you’re so outspoken
With your hands on me
Suddenly I’m choking
Why would you leave me?
Don’t know where I’m going
But soon sure we will see

Wake my eyes
Dream of lies
Wake my eyes
And dream alive

Fear the pain of the morning come
Fear the pain of the dawn

You still haven’t spoken
Or put your hands on me
My raptures gone to black
Won’t you rescue me
You know my world is broken
Why won’t you see me?

Wake my eyes
Dream of lies
Wake my eyes
And dream alive

Girl you’re so outspoken
With your hands on me
You know my world is broken
Why won’t you see me?

Never Go Home

Written By: LUCID

Never Go Home
Lori Hose was my good friend, just a sweet sophomore with a brunette head
Loved her family and loved her man, went to see him, never thought that she would wind up dead
Racing home in her car that night, she was running late for bed
Took the intersection at full speed, now she’ll never go home again

Friends are crying and so’s her man as he bangs his head on the door
Wrapped his arms around that coffin and crumpled down to the floor

Doesn’t make it easier knowing we’re all the same in the end
Only comes down to one decision and you can never go home again

Andy Martin worked a stand up job and took care of his wife and kids
Headed home early one night to spend some time with them
Stopped to pick up a pack of smokes, and a bottle of wine for the wife
Who’s to know there’d be a robbery that would wrongly end his life

Gangbangers didn’t ask no questions, they just simply popped his head
Now his wife and kids are crying, cause he can never go home again
[Chorus]
[Doesn’t make it easier knowing we’re all the same in the end
Only comes down to one decision and you can never go home again

Doesn’t really come down to mistakes, it’s just the way that fate plays out
Has nothing to do with confidence, though it sometimes does with doubt
Doesn’t matter if you’re good or bad, the destination’s the same in the end
When the clock catches up with you, you can never go home again]

Never go home [repeat]

[Chorus]

You can never go [repeat]

You can never go home
