MOMENT OF INERTIA is the WAKE up call for our culture's conscience – a heavy dose of sonic art that screams to be heard in the cold dark night. ROCK with a Social conscience that makes sure the sentiments of the downtrodden and protests of the rebellious hearts are heard loud and clear.

Biography

For this band, the music is the message...."WAKE UP and see what's happening in your world!"

Founded in 2000 by brothers Pete (guitar Vocals) and Jeff (bass) Lockhart, the band emerged from power trio obscurity in 2003 with the release of their self-titled EP. With the formidable Pat Pelletier on Drums, the band steadily built a reputation as one of NB's most intense live ROCK acts. In 2005, the creative juices were seasoned and stirred--the result; Pete sharing the microphone torch with Patrice and adding Randy Ross on drums. In May 2007, the band released their second studio effort, "The Underrated Truth", gaining wider recognition. With the current release of In These Riot Streets and a growing following within the emerging Metal scene on Canada's east coast, MOMENT OF INERTIA hope to contribute to putting East Coast metal on the international music landscape.

Be assured that M.O.I. will keep the fires stoked and burning.

Lyrics

Cash-In-Creep

Written By: Moment of Inertia

Cash in Creep

V1.
Spare change…for the masses
Green viens….pump the cash in…
and sell you out

sell you out

V2.
Gold chains…for the master
Greed train… fuels the cancer…
That swallows you down….

Sucks you down….

Chorus
Buy the world out….sell the mountain peak…
Seek your treasure now…and feed the Cash in Creep

Creep

V3.
Corporate Gains….build the fortunes
Up in flames…post mortem
That burns us down.

Burns you down

Chorus
Buy the world out….sell the mountain peak…
Seek your treasure now…and feed the Cash in Creep

Creep

Last Dance

Written By: Peter Lockhart

Verse:

She’s alone in the night...she’s a fire burning bright
It’s just a game of pretend…cause I don’t know where she’s been
Living off the land…doing the best she can

Chorus:

What am I saying?
Why am I crying?
What are you feeling?
Why is this always bringing me down?

Verse:

Our line of site is obscured…she’ll make us fight for a cure
These weary arms might extend, but a broken back will never mend
A fragile world in her hand, she’ll cast a spell on the land

Chorus:

What am I saying?
Why am I crying?
What are you feeling?
Why is this always bringing me down?

Breakdown:

Nourished the wounds for many years…
told ourselves there’s nothing to fear
So we woke up from this trance…realized our last dance

But we couldn’t find a way…to make it last another day
And now we’re falling down…to lose the evolution crown

The Underrated Truth

Written By: Peter Lockhart


Verse1
Well I look at things…with closed eyes…
still I see it all…in a plain disguise

let me show you things…pictures tell no lies
as the world walks by….as the walks by

Bridge:
What’s in it for me…what’s in it for you
You got a lot of time…to contemplate my view
What’s tearin at me…what’s nothing to you
I think you’ll recognize…the Underrated Truth

Chorus
Out of reach…from the Sun
But I think we’ll still burn…in the long run…
And I pray….that you’d live long…
For a thousand years….till the storm comes

Verse1
I can see things…held in their eyes…
A burden of no reprieve…in a slow demise

there is no guarantee…in this life
let your conscience guide….as your conscience lies

Bridge:
What’s in it for me…what’s in it for you
You got a lot of time…to contemplate my view
What’s tearin at me…what’s nothing to you
I think you’ll recognize…the Underrated Truth

Chorus
Out of reach…from the Sun
But I think we’ll still burn…in the long run…
And I pray….that you’d live long…
For a thousand years….till the storm comes

2nd Bridge:
Try if you can….see where they stand…Before they
slip…away

Bridge 2:
Their last words will never be heard…
Their last words will never be heard

The debt of our nights…the wage of our days…the price of one life,,,is something to save

Chorus 3:
The debt of our nights…the wage of our days…
the price of one life,,,is something to save

And it rains…our life blood
In a thousand tears….when the storm comes

Rebel Song One

Written By: Peter Lockhart

Verse:

Welcome to this life… Welcome to this hell
Are the beaten ones…In this 4-walled cell
Don’t give them what they ask…don’t give them what they seek
They’ll enslave your mind…They’ll have you on your knees.

Take a look at the sun…Take a look at the sea
Take a look all around…At what it means to be free
They cannot chain your hands…they cannot own your mind
They cannot own your soul…They’ll never steal your pride

Chorus:

Save yourself for tomorrow
Save your pain and swallow
Raise that knife you found
Before the flame burns you down.

Verse:

Give them a rebel yell…give them a quarantine
Give them hell on earth…between the lines they’ll read
They’ll never turn this tide… They’ll never break your creed
We’ve got to pulverize…with aggression’s seed

Chorus:

Save yourself for tomorrow
Save your pain and swallow
Raise that knife you found
Before the flame burns you down.

solo:

Chorus-2:

I’m Free…yea (4X)
Don’t ya give in
