BandAlternativeRock

Odd Order here. We are a fledgling band hailing from the golden metropolis of Knoxville TN. We are a three-piece combo that specialize in a strange brew of southern-gothic lyrics, surfy guitars, tribal drums, and rusty hooks that don't come out. We develop our sound NATURALLY. No gimmicks.

Biography

Within six months of inception we recorded our flagship EP at Satellite Park Studios with Paul Roessler of The Screamers, Dead Kennedys, Nina Hagen, and 45 Grave fame. Thus the Secret Crime EP was born. The music is a unique blend of surf, punk, metal, and pop that seems to captivate the audience regardless of personal taste. Southern-gothic lyrics top it off with a different flavor than boy meets girl cliche. Being a power-trio enables us to stray off the beaten path of the recorded material ensuring a unique live experience each night.

Lyrics

Scarlet Stare

Written By: Fletcher Stewart III

Scarlet Stare

In the heart of the forest
She walks alone
With a watchful eye she guards her throne
Can you feel her presence
Wander free and beware
You will be transfixed in the scarlet stare

She
Born of nature with a mission of grace
You
Out of luck if you if you see her face
Invade her home and you will pay the price
She's got you locked in a visual vice

Sentry of the centuries she is known
To all who have tread upon her home
One look to see
It won't be free

In dark of the county
She is on patrol
It is her kingdom to control
The owl's and fox's
They are the eyes and ears
If you intrude you will disappear

The Big Swim

The Big Swim

How can you change when it's all the same
How can you play when it's just a big game
How can you swallow with your throat so dry
How can you come down when you got so high

Your drowning in it
Resurface any minute

how can you deal when what's done is done
How can you feel when your comfortably numb
How can you fly when they cut up your wings
How can you cry when the siren sings

Your treading water
Try not to falter

Secret Crime

Written By: Fletcher Stewart III

Secret Crime

Always been a suspect
I could not pin the crime
Now your the heir and subject
To a mortal fine
What was the object
of your dire need
could you not reject
The painful urge to feed

It's your secret crime
Your running out of time
Your trapped inside your mind
Already doing time

Infected pleasure
Gleams inside your mind
Spilling blinding treasure
You never wanted to find
Let it run through your fingers
And fall on to the ground
Then bury it so deep
That it will never be found

Suddeny BLACK

Written By: Fletcher Stewart III

Suddenly Black

Out go the lights turn day into night no more sight
Louder the sounds spinning round and round what a fright
Apart at the seems like a weaver of dreams likely screams
Time has now died crystalized like a moon with no beams

What is touching you
Can't tell who is who
What are you gonna do
The world was just suddenly black

No more turn of the tide every person will hide where they stand
Man woman and creature and all of their features are banned
We wander and ponder and never grow fonder of hell
This is the place with no face where we're damned to dwell

You reach out to the air
You find that nothing is there
We all stop to stare
At a world
That is
Absolutely
BLACK!!!

Ark of Descent

Written By: Fletcher Stewart III

Ark of Descent

ark of Descent
is calmly burning
digital Ghosts
are reafirming
open and see
jack in the flames
a big dark sea
will never be tamed

if knowing is life
then you lift the lid
a stew of strife
was it always well hid
the finder and keeper
forever will bare
a whole for the creeper
to cum in down there

Head Stone

Written By: Fletcher Stewart III

Head Stone

I'm just a boy from down south
spiting copper from my mouth
like a cobra in a frozen nursery

I do not know witch way to go
Up high or down below
But i am certian I will grow the way i'll be

Futuristic dinosaur I was then but am no more
At once the feeling's new and growing old

From the past the smell will last
Wafting through the air so fast
take it in however thin
to taste the waste and stitch a grin
