BandRockMetal

To say that a band has the 'total package' is a rarity. They have to have passion, charisma, killer songs, good looks, great tone, professionalism, a never say die attitude, a brutal work ethic, marketability and they need a unique sound. Novakayne has the total package.

Biography

Bourne out of the battle worn city of Atlanta, a place where the scene is ruled by Metal and R&B, comes a band who transcends the monotony, doom & gloom and self-righteousness of today's popular music. Power, passion, stage presence, songwriting and musicianship form the foundation upon which Novakayne builds their growing underground army. Combine the vocal melodies and guitar hooks of great 70's and 80's bands like Boston and Journey with the rhythmic power and precision of today's hard rock, throw in the flair and charisma of Motley crue, and you have Novakayne.

Novakayne has shared the stage and/or toured with the following bands:

36 Crazyfists, Burn Season, City Sleeps, Fight Paris, The Feds, the Underwater, Lynam, Bobaflex, Lennex and dozens more.

Lyrics

Wake Our Voices

Written By: Stidham

Saving grace all for a rainy day, but rain won't seem to come
Fading further from the truth inside us

What's it gonna take for us to wake our voices up and scream

Trading our passion for a dollar bill, one moment in the sun
Holding tighter to te wrong direction

We Are One

Written By: Stidham

You were so much a part of who I thought I was
I could never figure out why things were so messed up
You weren't there, I wasn't whole
We are never in control

We are one, are we strong enough to say
We Are one, would we give it all away
Every word you say to me

Expectations were so high, there was no way to succeed
If you had only shown a sign, I would've followed blindly
One more scar, you can't ignore
I could never ask for more

We are one, are we strong enough to say
We Are one, would we give it all away
Every word you say to me

We Are One...

Who are we but we love?

Empty

Written By: Stidham

You're so good at all the little things

You make a memory and drive me insane
You don't want a piece of me, you want the whole
Thing it's never good enough and now I know that
It's not in my head

You're so empty
You only listen when you want me
You touch me just so you can scar me
My only wish is I could ease your pain

You ripped a hole in me and I can't heal
You don't want control of me, you want to see me
Bound and tied up, broken and fucked up
Ashamed of our love
It's not in my head

You're so empty
You only listen when you want me
You touch me just so you can scar me
My only wish is I could ease your pain

Beautiful

Written By: Stidham

It used to be, I used to mean more than this
More than just someone you kiss
More than a kiss
Open up, heal me with your lips
We're breaking up and I can't take it

Tell me what it was that made me beautiful
Once upon a time when love was still enough

I used to breathe, praying only for this
Hoping that the one I miss
One that I miss
Would open up, you've replaced with your fist
We're breaking up and I can't take it

Tell me what it was that made me beautiful
Once upon a time when love was still enough
Tell me what it takes to bring the passion back
Once upon a time

Who Are They

Written By: Stidham

You never know were you're gonna end up till, it's too late and you're looking back at your life
Your life is too fast anyway, but you can't make more time

I know a place untouched by the minute hand, the kind of place where we could stay
I know a place untouched by the second hand, I want to say

Who are they to say what's wrong and right? I live my life on my time

I never know where I'm gonna end up till, it's too late and I'm looking back at my life
My life is too fast anyway, just gotta make more time

I know a place untouched by the minute hand, a dirty place where we could play
I know a place untouched by the second hand, I gotta say

Who are they to say what's wrong and right? I live my life on my time

I'm not crazy...

Friendly Weapon

Written By: Stidham

I want to see you waiting
Down on your knees
Feel the passion, energy
Pulsing through me
I want to bury something
Something so deep
A lifetime of fury, burning through me

I know you're not alone, you'll never be
You cut out my flesh and bone, a soul amputee

Broke me down to nothing
So damned easy
The heart you wear upon your sleeve
Poison baby
I wanna give you something
There's nothing left inside of me
Feel the fucking energy
Burning through me

I know you're not alone, you'll never be
You cut out my flesh and bone, a soul amputee
