We play music for everyone, we are a rock band with dynamics, and hard edge yet we can be soft and thoughtful. We are not so heavy as not to be mainstream and not so light as to be adult contemporary.

Biography

Primate 46 is an original rock band based out of Sarasota, Florida. The four piece band was formed in early 2003. The band roots itself on strong musicianship and excellent songwriting, creating intensity both on stage and in the studio. Comprised of two Americans, and two Brits, Primate 46’s style is hard and melodic, strong both musically and vocally and explores many aspects of the rock genre. They have currently released one 14 track LP and a 4 track EP, both of which have been well received by audiences in the Tampa Bay area. As a result the band has begun to generate an ever growing following in their local music scene. With another full length LP in the works for the end of 2004, Primate 46 is working towards bringing their music to larger stages and larger audiences.

Lyrics

Survive

Written By: Brian Amoroso

EVERYTHING ENDS BADLY I CAN’T BEGIN TO TELL YOU ANYMORE
OF THE THINGS THAT I USED TO FEEL
AND DAYS THEY RISE AND FALL AND ALL WIND UP AS ASHES AT OUR FEET
LIKE IT WAS NEVER REAL AT ALL
TAKE THE DARKNESS FROM MY MIND YOU CAN KEEP IT IF YOU WANT
IT NEVER DID ME ANY GOOD
THOSE WERE THE DAYS THAT I WAS BLIND, I COULDN’T CHANGE THEM WHEN I TRIED
ARE YOU KEEPING UP WITH ME

EVERYDAY A DIFFERENT LIFE APPEARS BEFORE MY EYES AND I CAN’T FEEL YOU NEAR ME
EVERYTIME I STARE ACROSS THE ROOM AND I PRETEND THAT YOU ARE HERE WITH ME

I CANNOT SURVIVE
I CAN’T EVEN BREATHE
WHAT’S GOOD FOR YOU IS BAD FOR ME NOW I JUST DON’T BELIEVE
TELL ME YOU’RE ALIVE
AND YOU’RE HAPPY TO BE FREE
LET ME KNOW THAT EVERY DAY IS PERFECT WITH OUT ME

I CAN WATCH THE RAIN COME DOWN I WISH IT DIDN’T STING MY EYES
THAT BURN, THE ONLY THING THAT’S REAL
IT KEEPS FALLING EVERYDAY I’M GETTING WETTER ALL THE TIME
AND TIME REMAINS THE ONLY THING I STEAL
I ONLY WANT TO TELL THE TRUTH UNTILL THERE’S NOTHING MORE TO SAY
THOUGHTS ARE EMPTY AND MY WORDS ARE NO GOOD
I AM DROWNING IN THE LIGHT, IT COMES AND GOES EACH PASSING DAY
INSIDE I’M SLIPPING ON A DREAM

EVERYDAY A DIFFERENT LIFE APPEARS BEFORE MY EYES AND I CAN’T FEEL YOU NEAR ME
EVERYTIME I STARE ACROSS THE ROOM AND I PRETEND THAT YOU ARE HERE WITH ME

I CANNOT SURVIVE
I CAN’T EVEN BREATHE
WHAT’S GOOD FOR YOU IS BAD FOR ME NOW I JUST DON’T BELIEVE
TELL ME YOU’RE ALIVE
AND YOU’RE HAPPY TO BE FREE
LET ME KNOW THAT EVERY DAY IS PERFECT WITH OUT ME

I THOUGHT IT BEST THAT I SHOULD GO AWAY FOR GOOD
AND MAYBE THEN YOU’LL NOTICE
I’LL NEVER BE FOR YOU THE MAN YOU THINK I SHOULD
IN YOUR MIND, FOR YOUR LIFE
I ONLY TRY TO BE SOMBODY
YOU WANT TO KNOW

THE MEANING OF IT ALL IS CRYSTAL CLEAR INSIDE THE CIRCLES IN YOUR EYES
THEY JUST DON’T SEE ME ANYMORE
OUR TIME IS WHAT I HAVE AND SO I KEEP IT IN A BOTTLE AT MY FEET
SOMETIMES THEY SPILL ACROSS THE FLOOR
I THINK I’M GOING CRAZY NOW, YOU SAID YOU NEVER KNEW ME SANE
BUT YOU LIKED TO WATCH ME BLEED
AND ALL THE OTHERS TURN AROUND PRETEND I’M NOT BACK HERE AGAIN
AND I GUESS IT’S WHAT YOU NEED

EVERYDAY A DIFFERENT LIFE APPEARS BEFORE MY EYES AND I CAN’T FEEL YOU NEAR ME
EVERYTIME I STARE ACROSS THE ROOM AND I PRETEND THAT YOU ARE HERE WITH ME

I CANNOT SURVIVE
I CAN’T EVEN BREATHE
WHAT’S GOOD FOR YOU IS BAD FOR ME NOW I JUST DON’T BELIEVE
TELL ME YOU’RE ALIVE
AND YOU’RE HAPPY TO BE FREE
LET ME KNOW THAT EVERY DAY IS PERFECT WITH OUT ME

Turning Blue

Written By: Brian Amoroso

TURNING BLUE
I WATCH ALL THE POETS AND I
HEAR WHAT THEY SAY
I DON’T THINK ANYONE EVER SEES THINGS MY WAY
I DON’T GET TO TALK ABOUT IT
TOO MUCH THESE DAYS
I CLOSE MY EYES TO SLEEP AND I START A NEW DAY

IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR ME TO BE YOU
I WOULDN’T HAVE TO FEEL THE THINGS I DO
EVERY TIME I START AGAIN I’M TURNING BLUE
BUT I’M SORRY
MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY TO CATCH ME ON ONE OF MY BETTER DAYS

SUNDAY MORNING ALONE AGAIN
FUCK ALL THE LIES
YOU COULD WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES AND NEVER SEE THROUGH MY EYES
TELL ME I’M ANGRY AGAIN AND I’LL
TELL YOU YOU’RE RIGHT
CAUSE I KNOW ALL THE PAIN AND I PLAYED ALL THE GAMES
THAT I’M GONNA TONIGHT

IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR ME TO BE YOU
I WOULDN’T HAVE TO FEEL THE THINGS I DO
EVERY TIME I START AGAIN I’M TURNING BLUE
BUT I’M SORRY
MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY TO CATCH ME ON ONE OF MY BETTER DAYS

MAYBE I’M THE ONE WHO DOESN’T HAVE A CLUE
IF THIS IS HELL, IT’S NOTHING NEW

I KEEP ALL THE PAIN I FIND
RIGHT HERE INSIDE
NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT JUST SEEMS RIGHT
I DON’T WANT TO SCREAM ANYMORE
I DON’T WAN’T TO FIGHT
I WAIT AGAIN ALL ALONE INSIDE THE HOLE THAT I CALL A LIFE

IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR ME TO BE YOU
I WOULDN’T HAVE TO FEEL THE THINGS I DO
EVERY TIME I START AGAIN I’M TURNING BLUE
BUT I’M SORRY
MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY

IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR ME TO BE YOU
I WOULDN’T HAVE TO FEEL THE THINGS I DO
EVERY TIME I START AGAIN I’M TURNING BLUE
BUT I’M SORRY
MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY TO CATCH ME ON ONE OF MY BETTER DAYS

Protocol

Written By: Brian Amoroso

I SEE THE LIGHT UPON YOUR FACE I KNOW YOUR HEADED OUT TONIGHT
JUST WHAT YOU’LL FIND AND WHERE YOU’LL GO I ASK YOU I AIN’T GOT THE RIGHT
BUT I SEE IT ON YOUR SKIN ARE YOU DEEP? OH AND ARE YOU WIDE?
THIS LITTLE BASTARD’S FEELING LONELY MAYBE NOT TONIGHT

I KNOW THERE AIN’T MUCH IN THIS TOWN
I KNOW WHERE YOU GO WHEN YOU’RE NOT AROUND

THIS IS THE GARDEN I’LL BURY YOU IN
THERE’S A ROSE THAT BLOOMS FOR ALL OF YOUR SINS
IT’S NOT JUST PROTOCOL NOT JUST SOMETHING I SAY
JUST THE ONLY REALISTIC WAY

I SEE YOUR WEARING YOUR GOOD SHOES THE ONES I BOUGHT YOU AM I RIGHT?
DOES HE TREAT YOU JUST LIKE ME? DOES HE LIKE TO PULL AND BITE?
THE MARKS ARE ON YOUR EYES, IN YOUR VOICE, BABY IN YOUR PRIDE
HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO WIN ME OVER? IN ME TO CONFIDE

I KNOW THE WAGES OF SIN IN THIS TOWN
I KNOW HIS NAME, I KEEP THINGS THAT I FOUND

THIS IS THE GARDEN I’LL BURY YOU IN
THERE’S A ROSE THAT BLOOMS FOR ALL OF YOUR SINS
IT’S NOT JUST PROTOCOL NOT JUST SOMETHING I SAY
JUST THE ONLY REALISTIC WAY

YOU’VE BEEN CRYING FOR DAYS BUT THEN YOU NEVER HAD THE RIGHT
YOU’VE BEEN CRYING FOR DAYS BUT THEN YOU NEVER HAD THE RIGHT
YOU’VE BEEN CRYING FOR DAYS BUT THEN YOU NEVER HAD THE RIGHT
YOU’VE BEEN CRYING FOR DAYS BUT THEN YOU NEVER HAD THE RIGHT
