Biography

Permanent Midknight. A band with some of the most unique indiviuals you could possibly meet. Seemingly impossible that such a band could co-exist so easily. Permanent Midknight(commonly PMK) is composed of Morris"Jive" Tarlton on guitar, Belton Horton on vocals, Bryan Taylor on drums, Kliph Fortson on vocals, and Matt"The man with the sandwhich"Ferrie on bass.

Originally formed 2 years ago by Bryan and Kliph, PMK has had it's share of drama and mishaps. After finally solidifying and settling in late 2004, PMK has returned. With two new additions to the band(Matt and Ben) PMK are ready to continue their previously delayed journey to the top.

Combining swift metal with the groove of hard rock PMK have found their niche. The band passionatly portrays their love for the music live as they show the fans what they came for. With influences ranging from Dry Kill Logic, Stuck Mojo, Six Feet Under, to Soilwork, Primus, Lamb of God, and Acid Bath.

With Jive's full frontal assult of guitar, Matt's deep powerful bass, Bryan's thunderous beats, and Kliph and Ben's low growls, PMK have melded together an unusually appealing brand of metal. Metal not too abrasive, but not too light for the listener with heavier tastes.

Whether you know it or not...Permanent Midknight is coming for you.

Lyrics

Wish

Written By: Kliph Fortson

You may wish me dead
For all the thoughts in your head

I cant sleep I cant breath never know how hard I try to get back up when I am down on my face again its all the same I cant complain I don’t know my name I want out of this game

Take it away take it from me
I cant believe all the shit that I have seen
With my own eyes wish I was born blind
So help me

Take it away take it from me

All this time you hide
Thoughts about your life

You cant sleep you cant breath never knew how hard you tried to get back up when your down on your face again its all the same you cant complain don't know your name you want out of this game

Well id take it away take it from me
When you cant believe all the shit that you’ve seen
With your own eyes wish you were born blind
Just tell me

Id take it away take it from me

I can see the blood
Dripping from your skull

Everything you'd say and all we have been through I never once thought this is what it would come to your choices were wrong your timing was wrong I was here all along now I am writing this song

Cause your taken away taken from me
One more life to a world with no need
In my own mind id turn back the time
So help me

your taken away taken from me

your master plan is the gun in your hand the escape you have made for yourself

Virus

Written By: Kliph Fortson

In a hole, I cant free myself form the virus
loss of control the more I feel the infection
they all know that there’s no hope for me
I’m so cold and I’m so lonely
The sooner the better you get up you get stuck
The sooner the better you know
The sooner the better rather have never become so covered with constant displeasure you know

Think I'll wish it on you
think ill watch you die too
trying to kill me
think ill watch you die too

I’ve been told that there’s no hope for me
In my hole I will die bleeding
The sooner the better you get up you get stuck
The sooner the better you know
The sooner the better rather have never become so covered with constant displeasure you know

I hope your feeling broken
I hope your feeling broken
I hope your feeling dead inside, no sign of life, I hope you cry allot don’t feel alright,
because you aint, you got something inside, killing within, soon have no sign of life,
I'll watch you die before I’m out of time, ticking away as well is my own life,
but I will rise above and cut the ties that keep me sick inside from all the lies, Ill watch you die

Laceration

Written By: Kliph Fortson

Look inside me what is missing?
Something that I’ve lost you have found
Taken from me I’m left empty
You will drown in the void you left

Watch me crying
Feel me dying
I’m so hollow
You could swallow me

Everything you ever told me was a lie
And you hide behind these walls that you try to build up in my face
But I know you better than that
My time alone I’ve surely grown
Into the man I hope you hate

I’m so sick of this I cannot believe
I’ve looked at your face for so long I cannot see
I think it’s time for you to take your leave
I can’t be anything that you want of me
You took my pride
I bleed from lies
I watched you rise
Now watch me

Are you lonely I know you miss me
You disgust me with your lies
I hope your bleeding inside needing
Something you want you’ll never have

Watch me crying
Feel me dying
I’m so hollow
You could swallow me

Hands in you face tears in your eyes
Say you love me I want you to die

I’m so sick of this I cannot believe
I’ve looked at your face for so long I cannot see
I think it’s time for you to take your leave
I can’t be anything that you want of me
You took my pride
I bleed from lies
I watched you rise
Now watch me
