Biography

Off With Crowns is an up-to-date post hardcore/metalcore group from the Augusta, GA area. The band started in September 2011 with three friends playing covers and discussing the possibilities of expanding into playing originals at shows. With the help of home studio recording, the band took off in the local scene after only a few months. After struggling to find permanent members, the three piece eventually became a solid five piece and are now booking shows all across the southeast. Through the collaborative efforts of all five members, new breakthrough material is being produced and will surpass the current accomplishments to reach a larger audience in other parts of the country. Off With Crowns is definitely a band to keep one’s eye on and take advantage of seeing them at your local venue while you still can.

Lyrics

Invincible

Written By: Off With Crowns

Forget every time I ever said you're like me
I never cared at all, you never cared at all
reaching for the clouds to find a bed
But there's no place like home (I wish I knew)
I wish I knew that feeling a place I can go
A place where I feel welcome
This feeling has slipped from my hands
Covering up your lies you can't hide from this
I felt for your when you were down
I picked you up and threw you to the ground

Say these words to me
Save me and never turn your back on me
I won't fall again and I will never close my eyes

Holding on for dear life is a joke at this point
We're past the point of gone
Living dead is who I have become
Carving my images inside your head
You'll never forget me
I’m in the back of your mind

I can't go on
You'll have to come back for me
Can any of this be real?
Well, here I am
I don't remember life before you
Have you been there all along?

You see my face in the back of your mind
Crying won't wash away this visage
Traces of life will follow you,
And I will laugh at your misfortune
You have finally fell and we knew you would
We knew you would breathe

Breathe, you say my name clearly.
with stained hope that's washing away,
a sense of friendship is a joke,
All you have to believe in is hoping they dont choke,
their confidence is exaggerated in lies

Image to uphold,
A life more than cold,
a story that's been told,
Just another life that's been sold,
By now your going under,
but no they soon drop

When Lambs Become Lions

(If you sing this song any longer I may fall into its trance)
This alone won't be enough I wouldn't trade this for anything.
I can see right through you, don't say another word.
You think you can control me, I'll burn your structure to the ground.
I'll burn your structure to the ground.

If you sing your song any longer I may fall into its trance,
For every word you speak another lie is told.
Another web is woven, Another prey you've captured.
Another web is woven, Another prey!
When will this fabrication cease to hold?
Who will you preach your lies to when all is gone?

This alone won't be enough I wouldn't trade this for anything.
I can see right through you, don't say another word.
You think you can control me, I'll burn your structure to the ground.
I'll burn your structure to the ground.

One day you will reap what you've sown,
I will remove the burdens you have placed on my shoulders,
Placed on my shoulders!
Your will shall crumble, Your will shall crumble!

This alone won't be enough I wouldn't trade this for anything.
I can see right through you, don't say another word.
You think you can control me, I'll burn your structure to the ground.
I'll burn your structure to the ground.

You will not shed this skin, you are forever doomed without hope.

Don't Say Vandelay

As these ghosts haunt me and creep around my room
I find it comical to think they used to be like me
I am lonely and confused and
Desperate for something new

I am awaiting a chance to end it all, I am feeding at the idea of consuming my delusions.
I am drowning in my sorrows, I can’t grasp onto anything
Pull your mind from the depths of these waves!
All these times I lent out my hand and no one was there to reach for me!
Don’t take this for granted!
Then why can’t I swim? Why can’t I find the shore?
Then why can’t I swim? I am falling deeper!

I wish I were a ghost so I could live again
Maybe one day I can drift around their void like an equal
They're eating my insides and I don't hate it
they'll give me one more chance to be what I need to be

Why do you press for one last breathe? Please do not drown for this attempt
But I am exhausted; I need my escape to end this consciousness
If this is what it takes, close your eyes I will give you the means
Mark my words, I will see clearly once again so turn me away from the light.

I have let these waves overcome these lungs; sinking deeper I need to reverse
Maybe I could live again.

I wish I were a ghost so I could live again
Maybe one day I can drift around their void like an equal
They're eating my insides and I don't hate it
They’ll give me one more chance to be what I need to be

Journey from the Centre of the Earth

Written By: Off With Crowns

Everything you touch is destroyed in an instant
We've got to move faster
This isn't as hard as you think

Maybe the blood in my eyes is mine after all
And when it's over, we'll look back and laugh
I'm yours to mold and I'm yours to hold
And you thought you were better than me

Don't pretend everything will be okay

This is all your fault and everything you said to me was a lie
If you turn your back on me again,
It'll be the last time

I am finding my way home
I'm yours to mold and I'm yours to hold
I need everything you have

You're not as smart as you thought you were
I've got you beat in every way
Don't you dare lie to me again
Don't you dare cry to me again

Just keep fighting and you will see
That everything you value
Is worth far more
You're only one step away

I am finding my way home
I'm yours to mold and I'm yours to hold
I need everything you have

No More Kings

Speaking on behalf of my bitterness,
You will grow deaf from the sounds I create of how I am forever lost
It’s all because of your unethical ways
How you manipulate your words into praise of song
We need to break this figure you have shaped yourself to be
It is wrong to falsely present yourself so highly
For what once stands tall, will fall hardest of all, this is how you will cease to be

They will never think to look for us in the clouds, and we will never look down!
I never realized I want more than this
And now I know how high I can fly because I took a leap of faith
Faith in something real

I am waiting patiently to expose you, and the methods you grasp so tightly
You will be divided, I will reign down my fury for all I have lost, for all the times I have tongue
Speaking on behalf of my bitterness you will grow deaf from the sounds I create
Every foundation you have ever built will collapse; the bridges you have built will burn!
Your lungs will fill with every lie you have sold I will watch you suffocate as you choke on these words

I wish to end all of the pain I have suffered by your words
(We are the nomad we will plot the course for new land)
I wish you to choke on your thoughts that you hold so dearly to provoke,
(Somewhere we can feel home again)(We are the nomad we will plot the course for new land)
Those who cling to your every word, and I know they hope someday that they
(Somewhere we can feel home again)
Will yet free themselves so drown please drown in your deceit,

They will never think to look for us in the clouds,
And we will never look down!
I never realized I want more than this
And now I know how high I can fly because I took a leap of faith
Faith in something real
Drown in your deceit! Drown in your deceit
Drown, Drown, Drown, Drown
