Biography

There comes a time when one must stop all the nonsense. Throw down the notes without worry. Nevermind if each note has been played by thousands of musicians for thousands of years. Find a new arrangement of notes that sparks and shines like crazy diamonds. Push the boundaries and tear down the walls that genres create. Shoulder the weight of creativeness and present something that is luminous to the ear. Chilito's Whey on lead strings, melodic keys, and vox; Dirt on rhythm strings and vox; Ionstein on skins; Teo on the heavy end of the strings, melodic keys, and vox. This is Mantic. This is who we are. We do it for the music. Ya dig?

Lyrics

Headache

Written By: Mantic

Make it loud and make it clear
Do it while we're still here
And breathing

Talking love but living hate
You'll soon be dead so end the wait
Just go and die

I can't sleep and I can't eat
I'm barely alive
There's no room for me
I'm in too deep

I'd like to know if it's all for show
We then deny, we close our eyes
I can't look anymore

Shallow ways, mean shallow days
No sacrifice, no sacred light
No meaning to life

I don't want and I don't need...
Your frame of mind
It's not because I'm weak
It's not that which I seek

Tear it down within the crowd
Their words are broken, their thoughts unsound
So don't waste your time

There's the bell, now give them hell
The fight's right now, but don't be proud
It shouldn't come to this

I can't read and I can't think
I'm talking out loud
I know talk is cheap
We sow, then we reap

Victims of circumstance
Orchestrated to look like chance
It happens all the time

But let's be honest and let's be fair
We are the power but most don't care
And give theirs away

I can't stand to fold my hands
And leave it all to fate
?

So make it loud and make it clear
Do it while we're still here
And breathing

Awakened mind leaves behind
The hatred state, Articulate
Pura vida, compay

Hum Drum

Written By: Mantic

Another day through life
City streets and sidewalks
Hum drum life
Are bending under everybody's walk
Standing on a streetcorner
Building cars and caberet
Feeling as a loner
I really don't feel like a stay

Karaoke superstars are walking out

Please send me around the world
Cause I don't think I can handle myself
Please send me your referrals
Cause I'll probably need your help
Cops at every corner
Street lights and stop signs
Everybody's looking like a foreigner
What's going through everybody's minds?

Karaoke superstars are walking out
Steamroller engine do your stuff
With vanity of large amounts
Oh Sally, take off those damn cuffs!

Another day through life
City streets and sidewalks
Hum drum life
Are bending under everybody's walk
Standing on a streetcorner
Building cars and caberet
Feeling as a loner
I really don't feel like a stay

Karaoke superstars are walking out
Steamroller engine do your stuff
With vanity of large amounts
Oh Sally, take off those damn cuffs!

Steamroller engine do your stuff
With vanity of large amounts
Oh Sally, take off those damn cuffs!

Lately

Written By: Mantic

You never listen to what I say
You never listen to what I say

Lately when you love me
I don't feel you anymore
Lately when you hold me
I don't want you anymore
Lately when you love me
I don't feel you anymore
Lately when you hold me
I don't want you anymore

You never listen to what I say
You never listen to what I say
