Biography

One Glimpse Away is a power trio whose music could be described as alternative grunge rock. But One Glimpse Away’s music could really be better described as combining the melodic sensibilities of bands such as Alice in Chains or Incubus with the grungy tones and vocals of bands like Nirvana, Staind or Deftones. This fusion creates a sound that’s new, yet still familiar and comfortable for the first-time listener. Formed in July of 2009 in Yekaterinburg, Russia, they released a self-titled EP in September of that year which got positive reviews from listeners around the world. During 2009-2010, OGA shared the stage with many Russian and foreign bands, establishing a solid fan base. Later in 2010, One Glimpse Away shoot their first video, release yet another EP "1991" and go on a European tour. Their LP is expected to be released in 2011. In the nearest future the band is moving to the USA, and is already looking for a record label.

Lyrics

H.E.I.H.E.

Written By: Alex Lynch

Hey everyone, I hate everyone

Chorus:
And I don't give a damn about those in control
And I don't really mind if they will buy my soul and burn me all

Shame on everyone who tries to wake the gone

Chorus:
And I don't give a damn about those in control
And I don't really mind if they will buy my soul
And if I shake the hand of god, will I be pleased?
There's so much I would like to do, until I'm ceased

I must escape to where I'll be safe from memories that are haunting me

Chorus

On My Wings Of Sin

Written By: Alex Lynch

I'm all a lie, never true and twisted
You should be glad you missed it ‘cause it's too late to be trying hard
To wash the sins I own the hell away, the hell away

Bridge:
So why on earth must I explain
What I did wrong, what I did right, what I did in vain?
There's something terrible happening to me

Chorus:
It's like forever is giving in
To let me escape from the cell I'm in
And fly away on my wings of sin
And fall down so ruined

But I'm still here and now
With no shelter but a room of frowns
And it brings me down every time
Is this all a dream? Is it all a lie?
And everything I know must be denied

Bridge

Chorus

This Routine

Written By: Alex Lynch

Crawl out into the sun
Bathing your lifetime in its shining bliss
You know you’ve missed it all
That’s why you’re building this wall

Bridge:
Raise your hands up in the sky
As you have never ever died
‘Cause you feel it inside, you feel it inside
And you do it all right while letting it go

Chorus:
Free yourself from this routine
Understand that you’re better than that

Bridge

Chorus

Here For Us

Written By: Alex Lynch

This is no novelty
You better open your eyes to let them meet the sunrise
That's how it has to be
With your eyes shut you've been too long, now go see

He feels the breeze so close
And what he wants is to stay and never ever go away
The time as if has stopped
It's letting him breathe again to finally understand

Bridge:
That I don't lie
Just watch this light

Chorus:
Please, open your eyes
Come on, the world is here for us
It's giving this light to us all, to all of us

Alive

Written By: Alex Lynch

It all seemed lost and out of sight until I got to see it
The poisoned fruit was never meant to satisfy
I tried it all and broke all promises
And now I'm back with my new face to burn your eyes

Chorus:
I am what is left and alive
Still wanting to break out of this hollow life
And fall in the arms of the night

So here I am with all my faults, with my thoughts so complicated
I tend to never suit you all, the hell with that
And hardly had I refused to breathe, the air was sent right over
And now I'm back with my new face to burn your eyes

Chorus

But I don't know where the road began
And I don't know where it ends for me
The time stands still, while I'm one glimpse away from me

Chorus

And fall in the arms of the night
