Biography

MacAdams is a band created by brothers Robyn and Perry MacAdams. Jordan Wright entered the group in February of 2011, with Jon Gentry following soon after in March. A New Live was then recorded at Sugar Hill Studios in June of 2011 with some of the copyrighted music that Robyn had been working on.
Towards the end of 2011, Robyn's younger brother, Perry, started to show signs of detachment from the music that his older brother had written. That came along with a desire to work in real estate and play in cover bands. After the band met to discuss Perry's erratic behavior, Perry suffered what some in the band would refer to as an emotional breakdown. MacAdams is currently searching for a new drummer.

Lyrics

Void

Written By: Lyrics: Robyn, Music: MacAdams

Promises broken,
lives shattered
leaving behind a trail of tears
oblivious to their needs and fears
selfishly, I kept what I have found

Found something new to take the pain
to take the emptiness away
calling it Love you called out my name
to fill the empty
the void awakening

Forbidden

Written By: Lyrics: Robyn\Dan Rendon Music: MacAdams

Vanished days of the new
Coarsing through and through
a calm resolve of battles lost
and wars long overdue

Standing at the wall
head in hands
hands calloused
digging for my faith
The moon and sun reflect my motion

And the daylight brings the justice
And the skin is washed away
Are we forbidden from the heavens
We're fallen angels anyway

Back against the wall
The moon and sun still reflect my motion
This room has grown too small
for what must be done

Yes I did it and it's finished
My heart is hard so don't plead for mercy

And the daylight brings the justice
And the skin is washed away
Are we forbidden from the heavens
We're fallen angels anyway

Stone Aquarian

Written By: Robyn MacAdams

Sail around the world captain lost at sea
habitual relations whirlwind reality
compass points around me

Tearing at the thread that binds half truths with honesty
a fine line that's blinded by your beauty
but say no more to me
not another word

Center of my universe
succubus of this earth
water takes me home
etched upon my mental throne
Stone Aquarian

Were you someone else the sweet siren sings
a playful marionette out of touch with your own strings
surrounded by your sentimental playthings

When you're reaching for the sky
she weighs you down as you start to fly high
Now you're sinking blackened stone
She's in your bed yet you're all alone
Stone Aquarian

Killing The Plan

Written By: Lyrics: Robyn, Music: MacAdams

When you cross your shadow
slip out through the window
through the softly lit divine
a window nitelight to your heart

What is ailing you
I see the pain it's in your eyes
seeming so eager
to say goodbye

Drink to fill the vacuum
floating in your bedroom
swimming in the myre
hoping to aspire to your heart

What is ailing you
I see the pain it's in your eyes
seeming so eager
to say goodbye now
when Two Worlds collide
within your mind a sunrise
I am desperate to be there
by your side

Their eager spirits need patience
she's losing sensation
while he gives in to temptation
and it's Killing The Plan

When you cross your shadow
slip out through the window
through the softly lit divine
a window night light to your heart

What is troubling you
I see the pain it's in your eyes
seeming so eager
to say goodbye now
when Two Worlds collide
within your mind a sunrise
I am desperate to be there
by your side

Their eager spirits need patience
she's losing sensation
while he gives in to temptation
and it's Killing The Plan

Our eager spirits need patience
and we're all losing sensation
while we give in to temptation
and it's Killing The Plan

Get Up & Then

Written By: Music and Lyrics written by Robyn MacAdams

Sometimes I just sit and think of you
And the thoughts that keep on racing back
turn to colors I adore
still we long for something more

Winter nights dawning into early spring
and the sun sets on the west coast
reflections of your gaze
now my day's becoming brighter with you

Get up and then you lay right down
that fire in your eyes
it ignites the whole town
We both feed each other's flame anyhow
and keeping it in turn
we'll watch the world burn right down
watch it burn right down

Sometimes I can hear you call my name
and it's with that perfect breath that feels
like a sunshine through the trees
love you bring me to my knees

Time still and then it flies
when you are near
all my bad dreams disappear
and fear has abandoned its throne
now I know my home is with you..

Get up and then you lay right down
that fire in your eyes
it ignites the whole town
We both feed each other's flame anyhow
and keeping it in turn, yea
we'll watch the world burn right down

It seems that our love has no boundaries
a dream coming true
me and you
Those days when you smiled at me
then looked away
A glimpse of what used to be
what's to come

Sometimes I just smiles and think of you
And the thoughts that keep on racing back
turn to images I adore
still we long for something more

Get up and then you lay right down
that fire in your eyes
it ignites the whole town
We both feed each other's flame anyhow
and keeping it in turn, yea
we'll watch the world burn

Get up and then you lay right down
that fire in your eyes
it ignites the whole town
We both feed each other's flame anyhow
and keeping it in turn, yea
we'll watch the world burn right down

watch it burn right down
watch it burn right down
